Geocoding of UK roads[edit]

Hello! Thanks for joining the geocoding effort.

The idea is to add specific coordinates for each article that identify that particular feature, not generic coordinates for the area it lies within. For example, for a road, a point that lies somewhere near the middle of that road, but is not at a junction with any other major road, would suffice. See, for example, this edit to the A118 road article.

Unfortunately, you seem to have added the same generic "United Kingdom" location to a large number of articles about roads in the United Kingdom. A generic point not only fails to identify the feature correctly, confusing readers, but also creates the false impression that a true location has been found for that article, inhibiting other people from finding true coordinates. Accordingly, I've reverted all those edits.

Please don't be put off by these comments! I'd welcome any efforts you can make to add accurate, specific, coordinates, but please don't add any more generic coordinates to articles. If you'd like to join in the geocoding community, please see WP:COORD and its talk page. -- The Anome (talk) 06:19, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hello. When removing content, it is very helpful to other edits to specify what you are adding or removing as it really helps vandal fighters know that you are indeed helping the project. If you have any questions, you may ask them on my talk page. Thank you, Tommy2010 18:31, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
