Your GA nomination of Morden tube station[edit]

The article Morden tube station you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Morden tube station for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:29, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Good to see another tube station reach GA status. I seem to recall discussing some of the Zone 1 London tube articles could do with work, so if you've got any good sources to help improve this, I'd be happy to help out. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:29, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for reviewing. It hasn't been on the main page so far and I am planning to nominate for DYK as I think it has a fairly good hook with it being at one end of the longest underground tunnel in London.--DavidCane (talk) 22:11, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Historic Britain[edit]

David, I cannot thank you too much for the changes you have made to the lists of listed buildings using AWB. I am not particularly good with technology and have never tried to "learn" AWB; I thought that I was going to have to change all the EH references to HE manually! Thanks for saving me many hours of boredom. Best wishes, --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 08:39, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Happy to do it. I think I have got all of those using the format {{sfnp|English Heritage|...}}. There were some other links to English Heritage using {{sfn|English Heritage|...}} which I haven't changed yet, but they are links to things other than the National Heritage List for England, so they were not broken by the template change (e.g. the first reference in Listed buildings in Saint Anne's on the Sea). I will change ones that that to the format of the first reference of Listed buildings in Great Harwood.--DavidCane (talk) 09:01, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/April 17, 2015[edit]

A summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon. Was there anything I left out of the summary that you'd like to see put back in? I'd appreciate it if you could you check the article one more time before its day on the Main Page. - Dank (push to talk) 21:24, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

One question about this line from the article: "... was the terminus and only station on the short Piccadilly line branch from Holborn that was a relic of the merger of two railway schemes." Piccadilly line is a long, current line, so on TFA day, we'll probably have people reporting it as an ERROR that we're calling the Piccadilly line a "short ... branch". Can you find a better name or better link? If not, I'll probably drop the name. - Dank (push to talk) 14:42, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
The blurb for the main page looks fine, I think.
You could change the text you queried to "...the Piccadilly line's short branch..." --DavidCane (talk) 23:30, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
That solves the problem nicely. - Dank (push to talk) 23:35, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Good to see it, precious again, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:01, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Changes to citation format....[edit]

David, I've reverted a couple of changes you've recently made with AWB, as it changes the citation style in the article. When an article is using the cite web template with mode=cs2, the change you're making alters the appearance of the resulting citation, and, if the article is already consistently formatted, it also makes the citation different in style from all the others in the article. The whole "mode" thing is relatively new, as far as I can tell, as the old parameter model was a bit different (NB: I'm no wikignome though!) so you might not have come across it before. Cheers! Hchc2009 (talk) 07:18, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

No problem, but you might want to change the url manually to point to http://www.historicengland.org.uk rather than http://englishheritage.co.uk and the mentions of English Heritage to Historic England as the organisation has split into two parts. At the moment the old web address redirects to the new, but this may stop in the future.
I've got another 1999 pages on my AWB search list, so if I change another that you would prefer stayed the same I apologise.--DavidCane (talk) 09:24, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Cheers, and thanks for the tip - I'll try and update manually. Thanks for all your help with the wider updates, btw, v. much appreciated! Hchc2009 (talk) 09:36, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
