Election 2005[edit]

Hello, I wasn't sure where to put this message - my apologies and please move it if I've erred. Subpages are not enabled on the main Wikipedia namespace so I've moved your pre-campaign section to Pre-campaign events of the United Kingdom general election, 2005, as well as creating a new category, Category:United Kingdom general election, 2005. Talrias (t | e | c) 22:15, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I've removed it to Pre-election day events of the United Kingdom general election, 2005, as this title makes more sense, as the events described are part of the election campaign. Thoughts? Talrias (t | e | c) 22:31, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Do Exit Polls information really belong in Pre-election day events?--Fangz 22:14, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

Cell Phone[edit]

Sorry 'bout the "blanking" thing, I do think some of the stuff should stay, as it is highly relevant to the article. Since you messaged me, I went ahead and put up a cleanup-sect template on the section in question. All good?

2005 Paris riots[edit]

Hi. I noticed you removing a bit about the police's ethnicity from the 2005 Paris suburb riots article on the grounds that it wasn't NPOV. I'm not disagreeing, but I'm also not really getting why, so can you elaborate a bit on why? From where I'm sitting, if a lot of rioters believe that the policemen in question were ethnically French (seems likely that they do, though don't know for certain), then that's an important factor in the spark, and the statement in the article is accurate. --Kizor 19:52, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Template[edit]

Ah, numbered parameters are for when you don't name the variables. I assumed it would take the parameters in order if they were named. ed g2stalk 21:51, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I have passed the parameters through to a new template. There is no real need for naming them on such a small template. Also using PAGENAME for text should always be avoided as article names can change for disambiguation. ed g2stalk 22:08, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Black and white cafe[edit]

Hi, I saw you created this article and was wondering if it should be merged with St Pauls riot? I'm sure they could stay separate but I think that one article could do them both justice!Rex the first talk | contribs 22:00, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Category:Fellows of the Econometric Society[edit]

Alerting your attention to the discussion at [[Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2007 March 10#[edit] Category:Fellows of the Econometric Society elected in [...]]]. In future, please do not categorise fellows of the Econometric Society by year of election. --woggly 16:16, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

IN text deletion[edit]

Hi Chris, Just a quick note to ask why the outright deletion of text I put in rather than a better replacement. The text was put in because a lot of the services listed wont mean anything to anyone except those with some experience of IN or telecoms in general. I'd be the first to accept that I can be prone to rambling, but I would dispute any claim to it being non-NPOV. I dont work for any IN manufacturer at the moment - though I have worked with a number over the years. Beardybloke (talk) 21:44, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

No worries, just wondering about deletion, rather than replacement/refinement. I'm not that attached to it. It was a bit rambling (I'll admit that :) ) Beardybloke (talk) 10:26, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy tagging[edit]

Please don't tag articles for speedy deletion under the patent nonsense criteria unless they are truly gibberish or nonsense. KRALJ EDIP rock grupa was an article in another language about a band - clearly not nonsense. If you cannot read the article, you can't call it nonsense and therefore cannot tag it for speedy deletion. In the future, in such cases, please use the {{notenglish}} template. Thanks. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 20:38, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Aftermath of the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption[edit]

Concur with your section title change here, I edited the text (which made little sense) and left the title at NZ as it was all NZ text. Could even go to Australasian, interestingly Oceania seems to cover the same geographic area. (at least according to Wikipedia) See talk page re Talk-Eyjafjallajökull-Benefits. --220.101.28.25 (talk) 06:20, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

SS7 Changes[edit]

Now you have it as "Signaling System No 7" as in "no seven" not "Signalling System No. 7" as in "number seven" and signaling spelled the way it is in the standards (yes, even the ANSI standards). — Dgtsyb (talk) 16:06, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Spelthone and Heathrow Cite[edit]

I know they have moved to Heathrow. On the semi-final it showed them training at Heathrow and on the home page of Heathrow it says the "home of spelbound"

UK railway stations - A[edit]

Do you remember doing this edit in 2006? I'm wondering if you have any interest in doing the same to the remaining 20some pages? thanks --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:54, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

But, if you do, we need way of dealing with station entries having non-standard links t a map and or a timetable, such as if the case in UK railway stations – R - Rhyd Ddu, Welsh Highland Railway. I've just done a conversion on UK railway stations – B, since the current version was looking so ugly. --Tagishsimon (talk) 19:04, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for thinking about picking up where you left off. Variances we have in the current A-Z seem to be:
  • Ad hoc external links to maps (Campbell's Platform)
  • Map links using templates such as {{mmukscaled}} (e.g. Gilshochill) or {{gbmapscaled}} (e.g. Dagenham Dock))
  • Ad hoc external links to timetables (replacing links in live departure board & station information columns) (e.g. Waunfawr)
  • "Not applicable" (replacing links in live departure board) (e.g. Herston Halt)
It does occur to me that another approach would be to have a couple of templates, {{Ukrsrow}} and {{Ukrsrow_manual}}, the latter catering for the special cases ... if that makes things any easier.
And you also might want to note another post of mine, suggesting that {{Mmukpc}} should be replaced with something which gives the user a variety of map links a la {{coord}}. --Tagishsimon (talk) 20:58, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

I had originally closed this as "delete" but I'm relisting it per a request on my talk page. --Ron Ritzman (talk) 01:45, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Advice of Charge[edit]

Hi ChrisUK, and thank you for all your work on Wikipedia. Long ago, you split Advice of Charge out of GSM services. Thank you for doing that. FYI: It appears to me that the content you split out was a copyvio, so I've now nominated it for speedy deletion. What tipped me off is that there were line breaks every seventy characters or so of wikitext. Just letting you know. Cheers, Unforgettableid (talk) 05:42, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Cultrun, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Laurel and Lingual (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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Emilie Mover[edit]

Hello ChrisUK,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Emilie Mover for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Sulfurboy (talk) 02:25, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Giffgaff, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Pay as you go and Advertising Standards Agency (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.
