Remington Model 34[edit]

Why did you mark the Remington Model 34 as an orphan? It clearly isn't. --Zackmann08 (talk) 02:25, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

It was being indicated as an orphan by Wikipedia's review tools. Danrok (talk) 02:31, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
Very bizarre. Definitely a bug. --Zackmann08 (talk) 03:05, 3 February 2013 (UTC)


Manizan[edit]

Please refrain from tagging disambiguation pages as "orphans" they should have no incoming links. Read WP:DISAMBIG to understand before you tag. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 19:42, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages DO have incoming links. What makes you think they they do not? Danrok (talk) 19:52, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Geography of Jersey, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Capital (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.

Proposed deletion of List of parishes of Jersey[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of parishes of Jersey has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I have merged this information to the Parishes of Jersey article, so this article is no longer needed.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Susan Pinel[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Susan Pinel requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. reddogsix (talk) 02:23, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

I believe members of legislature are considered to be notable. See Politicians. Danrok (talk) 13:39, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Imber[edit]

Hi Danrok, Just wanted to say thank you for the newer pics of Imber. Pity there are not some more pics of the "council houses", built in 1938, which have managed to stay fairly intact. You might also be interested to read the latest comments on the Imber Talk page. Regards, David J Johnson (talk) 22:13, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata[edit]

The community is still discussing how we want to use Wikidata. Please see: Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/Wikidata_Phase_2. Most of the sentiment is against placing wikidata links directly in template fields, as you were doing. Dragons flight (talk) 22:40, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Coastal fortifications of Jersey[edit]

Hi Danrok, Nice work on the article. When you proposed moving the Round towers article I was afraid that it would just sit there in an otherwise empty shell article. All going well, my wife and I will be in Jersey for almost a week this summer and I look forward to taking some photos to add to the article. That aside, I noticed a Martello tower in the photo of Battery Lothringen. Is the Tour de Vinde?. If so, I would like to put cross-reference links in place in the articles. Also, is Battery Moltke associated with any of the Martellos or round/Conway towers? Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 14:13, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Tour de Vinde is at the foot of the cliffs of Noirmont Point where Battery Lothringen is located. I'm not sure what the Germans did with it, if anything. Seems unlikely that they would have used it because there is no easy footpath to it, and the cliff area would have been full of obstacles like barbed wire and possibly mines. They did make some use of some of some of the other existing towers. This one, Fliquet tower, has their concrete additions visible on the top. But, I'd imagine most would have been deemed useless to them because they wouldn't have with stood an attack from modern artillery. Their Marine Peilstand towers were essentially their own versions/replacements of these towers, but only 3 were completed.

There are none of the Martello or Conway towers at Battery Moltke. But they did destroy some of the towers in St Ouen's Bay, near by. Presumably because they were obstructing their guns' fire, and could have provided cover for invading Allied forces.

Moltke and Lothringen aren't the only batteries, but they're the best ones to visit. At Battery Ludendorff they used the windmill there as a tower. The command bunker there was apparently converted to some kind of nuclear fallout shelter by the States of Jersey.

At some point I will try to make a start on some more of the sites. Danrok (talk) 15:55, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I've made the Tour de Vinde and Lothringen cross-links. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 17:06, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Help with Winton Capital Management?[edit]

Hello there, Danrok. Back in October you made a small edit to the Winton Capital Management article, so I thought to reach out and see if you have time to help me with it. I've actually been asked by Winton to propose some updates and corrections, and I have just a few small things left, but the editors who had helped me before have become busy with other things. Because I have a financial COI on the topic, I won't be making any direct edits to the article; my hope is to find consensus for my changes that someone else may implement. My proposal is on the article Talk page, and if you're willing to consider it, I'd appreciate it! Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 20:04, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

There is nothing stopping you from making corrections to figures, spelling and so on. In short "Do not edit Wikipedia to promote your own interests, or those of other individuals or of organizations, including employers. Do not write about these things unless you are certain that a neutral editor would agree that your edits improve Wikipedia." source: Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. The part in bold would apply when fixing errors, so long as a reliable source is provided. Danrok (talk) 21:17, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I know the guideline well. In fact, until January of last year I actually would make such edits, but at that time, Jimbo weighed in to say (in general, not necessarily about me) "do not edit Wikipedia articles directly if you are a paid advocate". Although these changes are not advocacy, I think what I do is often that, and because paid editing can be so contentious, I've decided to avoid direct edits entirely. Unfortunately, here's the downside: I end up asking folks like you if they'll carry out a particular task, and it can be a hassle. If you do have the time, that would be great; if not I'll keep moving on. Thanks! WWB Too (Talk · COI) 21:49, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
That page appears to be a draft, and not currently official policy. So, there's still no reason why you can't do that yourself. Danrok (talk) 21:58, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
That's definitely true, although in interviews off-wiki that's been his line, and I'm quite small-c conservative in my approach. No worries, though, I'll try someone else. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 22:25, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
In case you're interested, this discussion inspired me to take the question to Village pump (policy), although as I figured, the limited response so far is nothing if not inconclusive. WWB Too (Talk · COI) 19:00, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Use of AWB[edit]

Hi, regarding edits such as this, this, this, this, this, this: none of these did anything other than insert a blank line above a heading, removing trailing whitespace, or bypass a redirect. These actions have no noticeable effect on the rendered page, so count as insignificant or inconsequential edits; and so fall foul of WP:AWB#Rules of use item 4. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:29, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

OK, thanks for letting me know. --Danrok (talk) 19:22, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Danrok, apologies for not initially providing an edit summary. I had removed the content from the Kleinwort Benson site because the story you have referenced is factually incorrect. I will ensure that an edit summary explaining the inaccuracy of the sotry cited is included in the change. Thanks, --Axp01g (talk) 14:41, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
