Disambiguation link notification for June 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited British Rail Class 503, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hooton (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.

Liverpool meetup[edit]

Hello. I'm writing to invite you to the 12th Liverpool wikimeet, which is taking place on the 21st June - see meta:Meetup/Liverpool/12 for the full information. If you're in the area, please consider coming along to it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:27, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite. Unfortunately, I'm likely to be busy with other things. All the best, EP111 (talk) 19:44, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hello EP111,

Thanks for assessing D-line, Old GRA and Odiabidi. Stanleytux (talk) 02:32, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

No probs. It's best to keep on top of assessing all of the newly listed places, now that I've cleared the backlog for WP Cities and WP Geography etc. EP111 (talk) 11:34, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

2014 Tour de France, Stage 1 to Stage 11[edit]

Thanks for your sterling efforts in keeping this and similar articles up to date. It would be good if we could find images of the stage profiles as in previous years, but I have absolutely no clue how to create them without breaching copyright. I can't see any on any foreign language Wikipedia either. Any thoughts?

I have been a bit busy of late, but should now have a bit of time on my hands, so plan to create articles for the more important of the missing climbs. IIRC, there is a notability guideline, but I can't trace it, to the effect that only climbs ranked Cat 2 or higher warrant a Wikipedia article. If so, is there any point in red linking the minor climbs. I was at Grinton Moor and Blubberhouses over the weekend, but I can't see any merit in an article about them. (If I can cycle up them, they can't be too difficult!)

Cheers Bikeroo (talk) 14:02, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Bikeroo, I've been keeping an eye on this Commons category for any relevant photos, as well as other route location categories on Commons for other photos. Though, someone seems keen to delete those non-cycling-specific ones from the article. I'm sure that any previous stage profile image creators would know the relevant procedure, if you feel that they are necessary. I've interpolated much of the route descriptions from the official ones, anyway. I've left a hidden note next to each redlink which most deserves a new article. Many have a companion article on the French Wikipedia, which can be translated by putting the link into Bing Translator (as http, rather than https - and Google translator seems to not be working for me), then copyedited. Links just to Category 2 climbs or higher (and others with an existing article) sounds reasonable enough. Perhaps, de-link and italicise the lower ones as foreign language, and link just to any villages named in the climb? Regards, EP111 (talk) 14:24, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

I have now created articles for Le Markstein and Col du Platzerwasel. As the Col du Petit Ballon article (such as it) refers to the mountain, I will add an article about Col du Petit Ballon. Unfortunately, at present I cannot find a source that directly covers the TdF route. Climbbybike has only one climb, from a very different place.[1]

Regarding Col du Platzerwasel, I have gone with the altitude shown on the IGN map (1,182 m) (which differs from the road sign in the picture in the infobox by 1 m), although the height quoted by the TdF (and used on the TdF articles) is 1,193 m. Bikeroo (talk) 11:26, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

They're good stub/start-class articles. Nice and tidy on the formatting, too. Regards, EP111 (talk) 11:36, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Col de Val Louron-Azet[edit]

Hi again. I plan to create an article tomorrow under the above title. This is the name used on the TDF website. See also this image of the sign at the summit.[2]. Bikeroo (talk) 21:24, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Noted, please change as appropriate, until further evidence. The photo is a good citation for the name. Though, fr:Col d'Azet describes it as primarily as Col d'Azet with the secondary Col de Val-Louron-Azet (I presume written by somebody who is also a native speaker of French). Please excuse my ultra-pedanticism, I wonder how relevant the extra hyphen is? Would "Col d'Azet" and "Col de Val-Louron-Azet/Col de Val Louron-Azet" be each of the two climbs on the opposite side of the same mountain? Regards, EP111 (talk) 21:43, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
N.b. Yes it would. Bing Maps shows that Val Louron (or Val-Louron, according to fr:Val-Louron) is on one side of the mountain and Azet is on the other. EP111 (talk) 21:51, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
