Concerning your site on Henri-Philippe Pétain, majority of sites by google search on pages written in French only shows no hyphen. Sites from France only shows Philippe Petain but sites from other parts of the world vary.

Hello there, welcome to the 'pedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you need any questions answered about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or add a question to the Village pump. BTW, thank for your work on Indochina. Cheers! --maveric149


Thanks for the work on Rolls-Royce! I took a look at it a few days ago and finally gave up in despair.  :)

I think from looking at the Older Versions that you did a lot of work on Reinhard Heydrich. The penultimate paragraph, which I think you added, seems unfinished, I was just wondering what you were planning on writing. I can quite easily make the information there grammatically correct, I just thought maybe you had more to add. Cheers, Ams80 09:52 Mar 8, 2003 (UTC)


As you seem interrested in Ford GT-40 can you copyedit Jacky Ickx. Ericd 20:35 Apr 14, 2003 (UTC)


Just checked "What links here" on serif and sans-serif, which led me to you. :-) I am currently doing quite a bit of work on the typeface pages; I hope you don't mind that I moved serif and sans-serif over to typeface because I am building a general classification there with sample images, and after editing (sans) serif several times, I found it just fitted better this way. I have deleted nothing of your stuff (I hope), it is now buried within the other stuff. Feel free to comment... I do this as a hobby, although I consider myself a bit experienced in typography. -- Djmutex 20:24 May 2, 2003 (UTC)


Re: Talk:Alstom - Capitalisation I agree with you but FearÉIREANN has a lot to say about the other point of view on Wikipedia_talk:Naming_conventions.

I think companies whose names aren't acronymys are jealous of the way they stand out in a page of text. I fear BMW is trying to promote the use of "MINI" as the car name. Blech - makes me want to call it an "Emmaiennai". Andy G 15:43, 17 Oct 2003 (UTC)

BMW[edit]

Awesome job with the BMW reorgs. I'm quite happy with the template - it reminds me of my work on Template:Ferrari vehicles and Template:Mazda RX! Next we need a decision on whether to include generation-specific info on the Series page or on the E page. --SFoskett 16:50, Apr 2, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks... I meant to credit your Ferrari template as the place I stole the table code from! --Hotlorp 16:54, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

BMW 600 - Is this page redundant? Nothing else points here, and the subject is already covered under the Isetta BMW 600 section. Regards Oldfarm 03:01, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Bentley Continental[edit]

I hate crowded and confusing pages. Bentley Continental, Rolls-Royce Corniche, Rolls-Royce Phantom, all needed to be done. Nice to be appreciated! --SFoskett 23:57, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Lincoln Mark[edit]

Actually, yes- its's Lincoln Mark (look on Edmunds or ebay for a quick check) but the the car is also referred to as the Mark Series. The Mark or Mark Series was a Lincoln model where every generation had a different roman numeral attached to the name (Mark V = Fith Generation Mark). Obviously it is not appropriate to have a different article for the Mark III, Mark VI, etc... This is how Mark articles used to be organized and it was too confusing. Thanks for understanding. Gerdbrendel 18:53, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

A bit of googling and it seems that the first of the Continental line was never called the "Mark". This is consistent with British use of the word "mark" to indicate the number in a series of generations of a car of the same name. BUT - the first of the line is only called "Mark 1" retrospectively, after the introduction of its replacement. For example, we are now on VW Golf Mark 5 (Mk. 5 for short), but the original Golf was only called "Mark 1" after its replacement came out in 1983. Regarding the Lincoln specifically, the following extract is from http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Hall/3703/3948mark.html
"From my first sighting of the 1946 Lincoln Continental in my hometown I began to read about the development of the Lincoln Continental. These first were not originally designated "Mark I," rather just Lincoln Continental. In fact the 1940 model carried the name Lincoln Zephyr Continental and was offered in two models, a cabriolet (see the picture at the beginning of this document) and a coupe."
So, what seems to have happened is that at some point Lincoln illogically dropped the "Continental" name, confusing people into thinking that the "Mark" was the basic name of the model. Since the term "Mark Series" does indeed seem to be in wide use, unless you object I'll move the "Lincoln Mark" page to "Lincoln Mark Series". Of course, each of these cars in the series needs its own page, which will solve the problem for good. -- Hotlorp 19:35, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Renaming the article from Mark to Mark Series makes sense. I don't however understand the connection you have drawn between the Golf MK5 and the Lincoln Mark since Mark really was the cars name. Concerning the Continental, as you may have known, the 1956 Continental Mark was not actually not manufactured by Lincoln. At this time, Continental was its own brand (together w/ Edsel). Lincoln adopted the Mark name in 1968 and used until 1998 for its line of personal luxury coupes adding a roman numeral for each gengeration, and yes, strangly enough there never was a "Mark I," neither was there a Mark II. Lincoln somehow wanted to connected the '56 Continental Mark's ultra-luxury prestige to the Licoln Continental Mark by calling it the Continental Mark (until the Mark VII) and by starting at roman numeral "III" (Implying there was a previous generation, even though there really wasn't any!).

The Continental four-door sedan who started production in the 40s shouldn't be confused with the Continental Mark coupe; giving both cars, at least partially, the same name was a marketing move-nothing more. Thanks. Gerdbrendel 04:47, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

I moved the "Lincoln Mark" article to Lincoln Mark Series, because yes series is better. Since I am a Lincoln Lincoln enthusiast I can assure that the Mark Series were not part of the Continental. Yes until the VII generation it was called the Lincoln Continental Mark, but the Marks were a model in their own right. Merging those two pages would be like merging the Jaguar X-Type with the XJ just because they both have the letter "X" in them. The Mark was Lincoln's personal luxury car from 1968 to 1998. The Continental was the flagship sedan from 1946 to 1980, then mid-level from 1981 to 2002. Of course, every car name is marketing; what I was trying to explain is that Lincoln called it the Continental Mark to make poeple think of the 1956 Continental Mark (which wasn't a Lincoln!) because that car was at the time as expensive Rolls-Royce; Lincoln thought- "let's take that name so our new '68 coupe sounds like that ultra-luxury car from 1956. By generation VII Lincoln however decided that adding Continental as a suffix did help the prestige anymore, especially since the car was most often reffered to as just the mark; so they drop it. Let me also reassure you that the 1956 Continental Mark was not a Lincoln; at this time there was a Ford subsidary called Continental (1956-1958). Also please consider that the name Mark does not have any meaning in this case, unlike in the UK (as you mentioned above) it is not used as a synonym for generation here- its just a name. If you any more questions let me know ;-}. Thanks, Gerdbrendel 21:59, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

St. Paul's tomb[edit]

I wonder if we can negotiate? The subject you introduced had already been inserted by someone else and deleted simply because the particular editor had already inserted it in the article on St. Paul's Basilica. I inserted a cross-reference so that those who wished to know more could click and find it. when I deleted your re-introduction of the same section, having inserted a parenthetical reference to the excavations, I explained why in the summary. The larger point is that there are hosts of issues arising from St. Paul's life and teaching, but most of them are best dealt with by links in order to comply with the WP policy, which seems sensible, that articles should not be overlong. Personally, I am much helped if other editors give reasons for disagreeing. I realise that it is frustrating when your edit is deleted, but since the material appears elsewhere, it does seem to me that its reinsertion is unnecessary. (You may note that this article is cited as a 'former good article'. In an to keep it tidy, much work has been done on shortening it recently.) I look forward to reading your reply.Roger Arguile 12:27, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Ref: Montagu Square[edit]

I nominated the article for speedy deletion yesterday for the reason that there is nothing notable about Montagu Square. If it were to be added to Wikipedia, then every other square on the planet would have to be. I have nominated it today because the article has been recreated, as per standard practice.

If the article were to be of a decent length and fully referenced from the first upload, then it may be acceptable. But, to reitterate, I have only been nominating the article for deletion, not actually deleting it, so at least one sysop must agree with me. Gretnagod 01:47, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
