Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from articles that you have created yourself. If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please place {{hangon}} on the page (please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag) and make your case on the article's talk page.

Hi there. Welcome to Wikipedia[edit]

I couldn't help but notice that you've been creating articles on London Buses. A while ago there were people trying to delete all of these. Myself and the other member of WikiProject London Transport were able to keep the articles at a high enough quality to allow them to stay.

I created User:web_kai2000/London Buses route layout to ensure that this quality was maintained, so please don't be offended if people try to delete the ones you create or turn them into redirects.

If you need any more help in this subject, just leave a message on my talk page. --sonicKAI 01:53, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Deleted article[edit]

A tag has been placed on Thick lipped gourami, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

London Bus articles[edit]

These are the things that I want you to do:

  • Can you not delete the bus routes that i have just created, it is very insulting because I am London bus enthusiast and I know my bus routes pretty well.
  • Instead of deleting my bus routes that i have just created, why don't you tell me were i've gone wrong and tell me how to make them better.CourtneyBonnick 21:22, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
  1. I'm sorry if you were insulted. I know what it's like, but your articles would have been deleted sooner or later
  2. Here's where you went wrong. You need to use the London Bus route infobox to display cartain information like PVR and management. Currently London Buses route 79 is a perfect example of what should be in the infobox.

I don't doubt how well you know your bus routes, and I didn't mean to offend you, but articles on London buses have been nominated for deletion more times than I can count. Here are a few examples: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

If you need any more help, you know how to find me --sonicKAI 01:08, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

I have just gone through and made extensive fixes to the London Buses route E6 article. You should take a look at how I have formatted the infobox, headers and categories as you shouldn't just cut and paste these from other articles. Also I've fixed numerous spelling and grammatical errors in the text. Finally I've removed the several examples of personal commentary that you included. Its very important that Wikipedia articles are written from a neutral point of view and do not include your personal commentary. Thanks, Gwernol 05:38, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Please do the same for London Buses route 297, London Buses route 223 and London Buses route 282 all of which have the same typoes of errors in them. Thanks, Gwernol 05:40, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

How to create the infobox[edit]

Thank you. How do i creat a London bus route Infobox and add pictures.CourtneyBonnick 20:57, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

I've got everything set up at User:web_kai2000/London Buses route layout. Just copy and paste.
Another thing, you may want to create you newest London Bus article as a userpage. To do that just put User:CourtneyBonnick/ in front of the page title. For example: User:CourtneyBonnick/London Buses route ### --sonicKAI 15:37, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
By the way, if you have any pictures you own that you would like to use, let me know. We're not allowed to use pictures on other websites.--sonicKAI 15:40, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

categories[edit]

In order to add a bus article to its category, you must add Category:London bus routes. It doesn't work by editing the category itself. Just thought you'd like to know. --sonicKAI 00:49, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

London bus articles[edit]

I have just created London bus route 606 and their is this grey thing on it, how do i get rid of it?CourtneyBonnick 18:30, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

The article was tagged as being non-notable a few minutes after you created it. I'll sort it out for you. --sonicKAI 21:03, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Bus routes infoboxes[edit]

Courtney, you are still creating bus route articles without properly including the infoboxes. Please do not just cut and paste the contents of one article into another. For example look at London Buses route 237 and see how you have ugly extra information like "{{length}}" and "{{image}}" in the infobox? Now edit the article, see how your infobox code looks like this:


{| class="infobox" style="width: 29em;"
|+ style="font-size: large;" | 237
!colspan="2" align="center" | {{{image}}}
|-
! colspan="2" bgcolor="#FF0000"  | <font color="#FFFFFF">Management
|-
|'''Operated by''' || [[Metroline]]
|-
|'''Garage''' || [[Brentford]]
|-
|'''Vehicle''' || [[Dennis Trident 2]] 9.9m / [[Alexander ALX400]] 
|-
|'''Peak vehicle requirement''' || 22
|-
! colspan="2" bgcolor="#FF0000"  | <font color="#FFFFFF">Route
|-
|'''Start''' || Hounslow Heath
|-
|'''Via''' || Hounslow

Brentford

Kew Bridge

Turnham Green

Chiswick

Stamford Brook
|-
|'''End''' || Shepherd's Bush Green
|-
|'''Length''' || {{{length}}}
|-
! colspan="2" bgcolor="#FF0000"  | <font color="#FFFFFF">Service
|-
|'''Level''' || {{{level}}}
|-
|'''Frequency''' || About every 8-12 minites
|-
|'''Journey time''' || {{{time}}}
|-
|'''Night''' || N9 between Stamford Brook and Hpunslow
|-
! colspan="2" bgcolor="#FF0000"  | <font color="#FFFFFF">Adult single fares
|-
|'''[[Oyster card|Oyster]] || £1.00
|-
|'''Cash''' || £2.00
|-
!colspan="2" bgcolor="#efefef" align="center" | <small>[[Transport for London]]</small>
|}

Compare this to the article London Buses route E6 which I fixed for you. Edit that page and look at how the infobox is created:

{{Infobox London Bus
     | number=E6
     | image=
     | operator=[[Travel London]]
     | length= 
     | time=34-51 minutes
     | vehicle=[[Dennis Dart SLF]] 8.8m/[[Plaxton Pointer]]
     | garage=[[Travel London#Hayes|Hayes]]
     | start=[[Greenford station]]
     | via=[[Hayes]] Willow Tree
     | end=Bull's Bridge Tesco
     | level= 
     | frequency=About every 15-20 minutes
     | night=No night service
     | pvr=8
|}}

This is how the infobox should be created when you edit a page.

Similarly instead of using '''History''' as a section header, you should use ==History==.

These formatting commands are important as they result in a consistent appearance of articles and stop you getting ugly missing fields in the infobox. For more information about formatting articles, please read the manual of style. Please also go back and fix up the bus route articles you have already created before you create more ones.

Many thanks, Gwernol 21:16, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello, saw your post on asperger's discussion.

Aspies are known for their creativity, intelligence, different and fresh perspectives. Hans Asperger, the guy who started the whole thing, actually said that Aspies are *more likely* to be successful in the arts and sciences.

Straight from the horses mouth :

‘To our own amazement, we have seen that autistic individuals, as long as they are intellectually intact, can almost always achieve professional success, usually in highly specialized academic professions, often in very high positions, with a preference for abstract content. We found a large number of people whose mathematical ability determines their professions; mathematicians, technologists, industrial chemists and high-ranking civil servants.’

Asperger H. Die ‘autischen Psychopathen’ im Kindesalter. Arch Psychiatrie Nervenkrankheiten 1944;17: 76-136.

And ...

‘It seems that for success in science or art a dash of autism is essential. For success the necessary ingredients may be an ability to turn away from the everyday world, from the simple practical, an ability to rethink a subject with originality so as to create in new untrodden ways, with all abilities canalised into the one speciality’. - Hans Asperger

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=539373

And Asperger should know, it's his disorder after all :)

A lot of writers with Asperger's too. We've got a few hundred here, very active in developing Wikipedia.

London Bus[edit]

Hello. What are your thoughts on creating merged London Buses routes H18 and H19 and London Buses routes H9 and H10 articles, as the routes are so closely related to each other? The original article titles could serve as redirects. MRSCTalk 12:53, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Requested article: Featherfin squeaker / Synodontis eupterus[edit]

(Cross posted to User talk:CourtneyBonnick and User talk:Jourdy288)

I see from the history of List of freshwater aquarium fish species that you are interested in tropical fish. I have an article request. Can you create Featherfin squeaker (Synodontis eupterus)? We recently got a submission on the photo submission OTRS queue of some featherfin squeaker pictures (Image:Synodontis eupterus 1.jpg and Image:Synodontis eupterus 2.jpg) and I'd like to see them used in an article. Raul654 (talk) 03:38, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

London Buses route H9 and H10[edit]

I got involved in London Buses by accident when a user was trying to insert the 'ibus' logo along with the number in the 'Infobox London Bus' template. This disrupted the reading of that field by the template to connect to the related Performance.pdf file. I fixed that by the addition of another parameter for active ibus routes that only displays the logo with the number (see London Buses route 482) if 'ibus=yes' is entered. Similarly what you have done in this article, by combining the two numbers, is also to disable that same function. The only way out is to divide the article again. To see what I mean, quickly edit, preview and test with only one number - and it works. Could you please let other editors know about this, as I am not a part of the group. Hope I have helped. -Secondarywaltz (talk) 16:52, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

offer on working on the UK Transport Wiki[edit]

Hi CourtneyBonnick,

I am creating a Wiki all about transport in the UK and i was wondering if you would like to join and edit it. This offer has been offered to you as you are interested in London Buses. Please write back on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Dudleybus Spake 2 me 16:38, 3 June 2008 (BST)

iBus[edit]

Note that by putting

{{Ibus route}}

next to the number as you did in London Buses route H98 messes up the link to Route Performance. Instead, please use 'ibus=yes' as:

{{Infobox London Bus
     | number=H98
     | ibus=yes
     | image=
.....
|}}

rather than

{{Infobox London Bus
     | number=H98{{Ibus route}}
     | image=
     | operator=[[Transdev London]]
.....
|}}

London Buses 2009[edit]

Hi, for the past few years London buses have changed alot. Myself edits pages so people who view the article of List of bus routes in London get real-time information when and where it changes. Could i ask that if you have any new London bus route information relating to what we both edit, could you forward it to my page User:East London Line, cheers. 13.27 January 24, 2009.

Verification of London Bus route 469[edit]

Could you verify if possible that 469 terminates at Erith station and not Bexleyheath. Thanks. User:East London Line 13.49 January 24, 2009.

Londonbusroutes.net[edit]

Thanks for telling me about this website, i really appreciate it. This helps me sort out my travel arrangements within Central London and in the near future travel on different bus routes, thanks for your help. User:East London Line 19.00pm January 25.

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated articles are London Buses route 77, London Buses route 79. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to the relevant discussion pages: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/London Buses route 77 for London Buses route 77, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/London Buses route 79 for London Buses route 79. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Help[edit]

I think this may help you:


Lolcat2.jpg The article you created was just deleted?
All is not lost. Here is what you can do right now:

Many administrators will be happy to give you a copy of your deleted article, either by putting it on a special user page for you (a process called userfication) or by e-mailing you a copy.

Once you have the article, you can try to resolve the issues why it was deleted.

If you've repaired the article, or you believe the reasons for deleting the article were in error, you can dispute the deletion at Deletion Review. Generally, you must show how the previous deletion(s) were in error, but this is the place to resolve disputes about whether a deletion was wrong.

Okip 15:12, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

I am sorry to see so many of your hard work deleted. I think you maybe interested in this group:

WikiProject Article Rescue Squadron
Hello, CourtneyBonnick.
You have been invited to join the Article Rescue Squadron, a collaborative effort to rescue articles from deletion if they can be improved through regular editing.

Deletion nomination of Talk:London Buses route 70[edit]

blanked page

Hi CourtneyBonnick, this is a message from an automated bot, regarding Talk:London Buses route 70. You blanked the page and, since you are its sole author, FrescoBot has interpreted it as a request for deletion of the page and asked administrators to satisfy the requests per speedy deletion criterion G7. Next time you want a page that you've created deleted, you can explicitly request the deletion by inserting the text {{db-author}}. If you didn't want the page deleted, please remove the {{db-author}} tag from the page and undo your blanking or put some content in the page. Admins are able to recover deleted pages. Please do not contact the bot operator for issues not related with bot's behaviour. To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=FrescoBot}} somewhere on your talk page. -- FrescoBot (msg) 00:54, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Why???[edit]

Why have you redirected London Buses route 79?? I took like half an hour to find information on the web to add to the article including adding images on it, and you've just wasted it. All of this information has all been removed by you. You have removed the whole history of changes of the article. Now what do I have to do now?? Tell me. I can't believe that I'm being treated like this when I'm trying to improve Wikipedia articles as much as I can! I'm really sorry but you have just wasted my time! --TransportJone (talk) 18:43, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Blue Triangle, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stratford (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:27, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Subtle factual errors regarding dates; can you help[edit]

I noticed you reverting an ip at this page, specifically User:123.243.195.188 who has a LONG history of making changes like this to a similar set of articles. I've dealt with similar vandals like this in the past, and while the pattern seems similar, other things, like the geography don't fit a few people I have in mind.

I was wondering if you could help me answer the question definitively of 1) are these in fact all spurious edits (the changes in dates seem to be huge and also are so frequent and widespread I can't possibly imagine them being legitimate), and 2) are you aware of any other editors on these or similar pages exhibiting similar editing patters, IP or otherwise?

I also have filed an AIV report for the IP in question, which I'm sure will lead to a block, but given the extensive history of abuse, and the possibility of a lot of latent damage not having been noticed, I may take it to ANI so any extra information from you would be helpful. Thanks again. Shadowjams (talk) 07:14, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

London Buses route 226[edit]

Could you please stop vandalising the London Buses route 226 page. It is fine as it is. If you have a problem, please tell me. You manage different sites and many users seem to be against the changes. Please leave this alone and contribute wisely to other pages.DW.Lawrence

My acting like a child? How old are you. Why do you want the last word of writing what you want. Can't you give it a rest and edit somewhere else. You are vandalsing my work.

1) The London Buses route 226 can be in the info box. Are you the owner of the site? I don't think so!

2) No one has an image, and if they do they'll add it themself.

STOP THE VANDALSIM and go elsewhere. You've ruined other people's work and now you're doing the same to me. Your a big bully. But you won't win. (talk) 14:09, 17 March 2012

Your stopping me from editing the page and telling me that I should leave things along. Your are a bully and you are vandalising. What are you correcting? Things are fine as they are. You don't have the authority to stop me from editing the page either. On your talk page someone said:

"Why have you redirected London Buses route 79?? I took like half an hour to find information on the web to add to the article including adding images on it, and you've just wasted it. All of this information has all been removed by you. You have removed the whole history of changes of the article. Now what do I have to do now?? Tell me. I can't believe that I'm being treated like this when I'm trying to improve Wikipedia articles as much as I can! I'm really sorry but you have just wasted my time!"

This proves your a bully and you've done this before. Please edit pages elsewhere. How old are you?(talk) 14:16, 17 March 2012

I think your not telling the truth. Just stop billying me? How old are you? You get your facts right.(talk) 14:28, 17 March 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by DoctorWhoLawrence (talkcontribs)

March 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. GFOLEY FOUR!— 17:16, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Thomas & Friends. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. SMS Talk 21:29, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Live action and animation[edit]

Hello. I noticed you reverted my edit to Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. I'm not going to get into an edit war with you, and if you insist on the page remaining like that, then so be it. However, to be clear, in film-making, live action and animation are two different things.

That list does belong there, the original Ertl toys were first sold with "Shining Time Station" cards in U.S. during the late 80s and early 90s.

Hello!

Transport[edit]

Hi. I'm a bit puzzled by your removal of the bus routes from the Hadley Wood article - especially as the article history shows that it was you who first added them. You are correct that Wikipedia is not a travel website, which is why we don't offer suggestions on routes, sights, connections, or how friendly Bob the driver is. However, notes about the transport infrastructure are a normal part of "places" articles, from nations to hamlets. In the case of nations, there is usually a separate article ("Transport in...."), but for cities, towns, and other communities it is usually a section within the main article. It is usual to list railway stations, metro stations, tram routes, and bus routes - as you will see in hundreds of other examples, apart from Hadley Wood. If you want to remove all references to bus routes in community articles I think you will need to start a discussion, and look for consensus. Timothy Titus Talk To TT 15:37, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your reply on my talk page. Yes, I know there are some "bus fascists" out there! I quite agree with WP:NOTDIR, and community articles don't need travelogues on bus routes, but equally the fact of bus routes serving a community, like railway lines, and other transport links, is part of the reporting of the infrastructure. I think maybe your most recent edit at Hadley Wood is a good compromise, giving a "bare bones", but still being informative. Timothy Titus Talk To TT 16:52, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 week for edit warring, as you did at Metroline. Since you have been blocked for edit warring more than once before, you certainly knew that doing so was unacceptable. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  JamesBWatson (talk) 20:48, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/CourtneyBonnick, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

September 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. -

Opinion wanted[edit]

London Buses route 414 is the only bus that terminates at Putney Bridge tube station to remain entirely north of the River Thames. I reckon I could run a DYK hook on that. Do you think 1,500 characters could be written about it?--Launchballer 01:25, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

I've made a start on it here.--Launchballer 10:52, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
For DYK purposes. Had I used the existing page, I would have needed to have conjured up another 2,012 characters of prose: rewriting the text from scratch means that I only need 1,500. Why did you take out the zenfolio reference?--Launchballer 17:48, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Great. What other references would you suggest?--Launchballer 18:06, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I was going to wait until it had 1,500 characters before moving it. But it's been moved now - don't worry about it.--Launchballer 19:49, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
That layout is completely allergic to DYK, which is where I plan on taking this.--Launchballer 22:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, knee-jerk reaction. As you can tell from the history, I spent quite a bit of time making it DYK eligible and for 400 characters to be wiped off it just like that, I just reverted. I took out part of the quoted paragraph to get it below 40 characters so it didn't have to be in blockquotes, which explained that that was the case for this route.--Launchballer 19:23, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

London Buses route E1[edit]

Before we find ourselves in an edit war...

"The H in Alexander Dennis EnviroE400H stands for hybrid so there no reason to say it's a hybrid."

Well, not everyone will know immediately that the 'H' stands for hybrid. The same can be said for the Volvo B5LH.

Plus, even though the number of hybrid double-deckers in London is increasing, I'm fairly sure that the number of ordinary diesel double-deckers is still greater...

"The reason why it says Alexander Dennis Enviro400 double-deckers is to point out that they are double deckers."

I'm sorry, but I still don't see a need to explicitly point out that they are double-deckers when they replaced double-deckers.

I'd only see a need if they replaced single-deckers (in other words, if the route was converted from full or partial single-deck operation to full double-deck operation at that time). But they didn't (IOW, it wasn't), so I don't.

Finally, am I not allowed to use anything that might be interpreted as "bus enthusiast speak" when editing any article on a London bus route or operator? Bluebird207 (talk) 01:31, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm still not entirely happy, I'm afraid to say.
Now I ask: what was wrong with saying "In the spring of 2013, First decided to sell its London bus businesses, and on 22 June of that year the E1, along with the Enviro400s and Greenford garage, passed to Metroline"?
After all, First did decide to sell said businesses, and 22 June was the date on which Metroline acquired the E1, the buses on the route and Greenford garage.
It wasn't "bus enthusiast speak" as well, was it? Bluebird207 (talk) 14:55, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
"Needed to specify month."
Well, it is true that I didn't give the month of 2013 in which First made its decision (April).
But surely the month in which the E1 passed to Metroline is specified when the full date of that development is given (i.e. 22 June 2013, as opposed to just June 2013)? Bluebird207 (talk) 15:52, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Proposal of moves[edit]

Hello. I wanted to discuss this with one of the common contributors in London geography articles, and have found you.

I am proposing to move Wembley to Wembley, London. The reason is simply because Wembley is better known all around the country for the Stadium, perhaps the Arena, but not the district itself. Wembley Stadium for example is commonly called just 'Wembley' by the media and society. I therefore think Wembley area article should be moved to Wembley, London, and the Wembley article should afterwards be the disambiguation (or maybe redirect to the Stadium, though that would be unlikely from my POV).

I also think Harrow should be the other way round: Harrow, London, to be moved to Harrow. The reason is because the Harrow disambiguation article mostly consists of entries related to the Harrow town in London, and very little of other topics. Also Harrow is one of the metropolitan centres according to the London Plan, so that shows it is a major town and well-known. Therefore, Harrow, London should move to just Harrow, and the present Harrow article should be turned into Harrow (disambiguation).

I would like to get your views on this matter. You may put this on a talk page to let others join the discussion. --TransportJone (talk) 15:03, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

I am also considering similar moves for Blackheath, London, and Kilburn, London, possibly King's Cross, London as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TransportJone (talkcontribs) 13:33, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Notice you have deleted the external links from a couple of the London bus route articles on the basis that they are from self published sites.

Agree with removing the timetable link from the londonbusroutes.net site, as this was self published. However the replacement was from tfl.gov.uk [8] which I believe complies with WP:ELYES. It also provides a source for the Service details in the Infobox and the Current route section.

Presume you have removed the gallery on the basis that it fails WP:FANSITE. Reading through WP:EL, don't believe any policy is breached by including. The reason for including is that it offers a more diverse range of images over a longer period of time than available in the commons galleries, most of which only focus on the present or very recent past.

Thomas episode lists - "TV Order" column[edit]

Have you spotted my comments on this topic (at the bottom of the Talk page of the main Wiki Thomas page)? Any thoughts on the issue? Thanks. Kwerty (talk) 19:49, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Fan sites[edit]

Image galleries from external sites are commonly used on other articles, eg Norfolk Green, Trentbarton & Yorkshire Traction where they offer a more varied fare than available on commons.

Not sure why you are so adamant these must go, but if are adamant that it cannot be included, can you please refrain from using LondonBusroutes as a cite, as this is definately a Fansite.

Likewise all the uncited bus types will have to go from operator pages. Myksave (talk) 19:28, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

That other editor being User:Charlesdrakew? A well-known loather of bus articles. A more unproductive editor you could not hope to find, whose days of positive editing are clearly over, but rather than having the good grace to move on as most others do, just hangs on by reverting the work of others. If he had his way, all bus related articles would be deleted. Myksave (talk) 22:15, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
