Disambiguation link notification for January 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Holy Monastery of Venerable Father David, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Catholicon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Dadong Subdistrict, Guangzhou[edit]

Hi, your edit comment on Dadong Subdistrict, Guangzhou asked why Category:Subdistricts of the People's Republic of China was deleted - it was because there are probably a few hundred thousand subdistricts in China, which is too big for a single category. Instead - "Category:township-level divisions of XXX (where XXX is the relevant province) is used. Best, ► Philg88 ◄ Star.pngtalk 12:05, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Biscuittin (talk) 17:47, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Another FYI, in general only the first geographic specifier in a location is usually linked per WP:LINK, WP:LEADLINK and WP:SEAOFBLUE, e.g. "Guangdong Province" and "China" (in particular) don't need to be linked; the idea being that a reader gets the general idea of where somewhere is and if they want more detail they can "drill through" to subsequent articles from the first link (e.g. [[Linked location]]-->Guangdong-->China). ► Philg88 ◄ Star.pngtalk 04:23, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
(p.s. I'm not stalking you, it's just that I created or fixed up a lot of the Chinese geography stubs you are editing and they appear on my watchlist.)
OK, noted. Biscuittin (talk) 07:51, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lightweight design[edit]

I'm not going to template a regular, but I thought you should know that I have proposed the article Lightweight design for deletion. You are the only person, apart from the article creator, who has done something to the article that wasn't adding or removing tags or vandalism.

Feel free to delete the {{Proposed deletion/dated}} tag if you think this deserves wider discussion.

Yaris678 (talk) 09:55, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I do not object to deletion. Biscuittin (talk) 15:48, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. I am glad to see that you are discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Router (computing) are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic or unrelated topics. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you.

Patriotic Socialist Party[edit]

I have nominated Patriotic Socialist Party for deletion. The party barely meets any Wikipedia guidelines on notability or importance. Please feel free to have your say on this deletion. doktorb wordsdeeds 18:39, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Repost of Patriotic Socialist Party[edit]

Information icon A tag has been placed on Patriotic Socialist Party requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you.

Large boilers[edit]

Hi, regarding Talk:L&YR Class 31#Boiler diameter - I've been doing some research. In Great Britain, boilers of 5 ft 6 in diameter first appeared on the Great Northern Railway (GNR) in 1902, on the 251 class 4-4-2. Boilers of this size were used on some other GNR classes from 1913, such as the Class H3 2-6-0 and the 2-8-0s of classes O1 and O2. Other railways to use this size before 1923 included the North Eastern Railway (NER) (1903 on - classes P2, P3, R1, S2, S3, T2, T3, V, V/09, Y, Z, Z1); the London and South Western Railway (1905 on - 4-6-0s of classes F13, E14 and H15); the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (1905 on - 4-4-2s of classes H1 and H2); the North British Railway (1906 on - 4-4-2s of classes H & I); the Hull & Barnsley Railway (1907 - class A 0-8-0); the Great Central Railway (1912 on - classes 1, 1A, 8M, 8N, 9P, 9Q); and the Glasgow and South Western Railway (1922 - the 540 class 4-6-4T). Larger sizes were also found - the Lancashire & Yorkshire, as mentioned, used the 5 ft 8 14 boiler on several classes from 1908; the Caledonian used a 5 ft 9 in boiler on the 956 class 4-6-0 in 1921; and a 6 ft 0 in boiler was used by the GNR on the H4 class 2-6-0 of 1920, and by the NER on their 4-6-2 in 1922. All of the preceding had cylindrical barrels; the Great Western Railway preferred tapered barrels from about 1902, and of these, the Standard No. 1 (introduced 1903, used on classes like 28xx, Saint, Star) and Standard No. 4 (introduced 1902, used on classes like 26xx, 3150, 42xx, 43xx, City, County 4-4-0) both had a barrel tapering down from 5 ft 6 in at the firebox end. The GWR's Standard No. 7 boiler (introduced 1922, used only on the 47xx class) had a barrel tapering down from 6 ft 0 in at the firebox end. I've ignored a few experimental locos and one-offs. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:15, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. A parallel boiler always looks bigger than a taper boiler and, I assume, is much heavier when filled with water. Biscuittin (talk) 21:39, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, if they are the same diameter at firebox end, the smaller diameter at the smokebox end implies a smaller volume in what is essentially a truncated cone, as compared to a cylinder. I forgot the GNR A1 class - these were biggest of all the pre-grouping boilers, 6 ft 5 in diameter at the firebox end, tapering down to 5 ft 9 in at the smokebox. They weren't the longest though, because Gresley, like Churchward (and Bulleid later on), appreciated that pure length is much less important than good circulation around the firebox. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:39, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, long boilers are another story. The longest I can think of (for a British loco) is the LNER Class A2. Biscuittin (talk) 23:13, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
