Welcome![edit]

Hi, JMiall, Welcome to Wikipedia! Wikipedia-logo.png

Hello, and welcome to the ranks of Wikipedians! My name is BorgHunter, one of very many Wikipedians around here, and let me be the first to welcome you here. Before getting too in-depth, you may want to read about the simplified ruleset. If you need help on how to title new articles check out the naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. If you need help look at Wikipedia:Help and the FAQ , plus if you can't find your answer there, check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. And if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my user talk page. And don't worry—you may well have a bunch of questions after that avalanche of info I just threw at you. Yeah, Wikipedia has a bit of a culture and etiquette of its own, but you get used to it!


Additional tips[edit]

Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the 'pedia!

  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills the Sandbox is for you.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes (~). If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Using the four tildes to sign your sig is policy whenever you make comments on a talk page or vote on something.
  • You may want to add yourself to the new user log.
  • You should also consider (if you have not already) creating a user page for yourself, to tell us a bit about you. Don't worry if it's small at first -- most people tend to grow their user pages over a period of time, much like Wikipedia articles. Don't expect everything to happen all at once!
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the articles for deletion page. If you think a page should be moved to a different title, please list it at requested moves.
  • If you're still entirely confused, or would like to get a better grasp of your wikipedia skills, and you have an IRC client (or don't mind getting one), check out the Bootcamp. It's not what it sounds like, but it is fun and can help you with your editing skills.
  • If you're bored and want to find something to do, try the Random page button in the sidebar, or check out the Open Task message in the Community Portal.

Happy Wiki-ing.[edit]

Image copyright problem with Image:Milford_Everton_FC.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Milford_Everton_FC.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images on Wikipedia is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. You can get help on image copyright tagging from Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. -- Carnildo 15:48, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Category Link Trick[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up on the category thing. So, adding a preceding colon to a category wikilink gives you the link without being put in the category? That's handy. Where'd ya learn that trick? — WCityMike (talk • contribs) 23:27, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Only by making the same mistake myself and checking how the people linking to those pages successfully were doing it, nowt clever. JMiall 23:30, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Well, good to know. I'll have to add that to my "clever Wikipedia tricks" notes. — WCityMike (talk • contribs) 23:45, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Andy Morrell and Gary McSheffrey[edit]

First have you seen either of these play? If so you would not doubt that Andy Morrell alleges to be a professional footballer and Gary McSheffrey is greedy. I will however find an article to back up this greed as I know there are plenty kicking around. Asmith6 13:10, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Hi JMiall, thanks for all your comments on the Gilberto Silva article. It's going to take me some time to address all your suggestions - so I'll get started straight away. The only thing I'm uncertain of now is this: how many book references do you think are needed in an article of this size? At the moment there are only two, but I'm pretty sure this isn't enough (especially as there are over forty web references). Guidelines which I've read have only ever said "include print references" - but never how many. What do you think?

Anyway - just that question for now. I'm sure that once I've implemented your suggestions, the article will be much better; so thank you!

All the best, GilbertoSilvaFan 21:21, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the tip re the preview button - I think somehow I overlooked that. One question though - what helps you decide when you feel a location or item deserves a separate page ? Strider52 | Talk 12:02, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Hesselberg article[edit]

Hello! I found you on the WikiProject Mountains page and just wanted to ask, if you are interested in having a look (and improving) the Hesselberg article. Keep on good work! Tirkfl 09:41, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much for proofreading this article! I am going to look through your questions and tell you as soon as I answered most of them. Tirkfl 07:31, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
I answered all of your questions. I hope I could clarify some issues. I had some translation problems too, which I posted at Talk:Hesselberg. Again, thank you very much for proofreading and maybe we can further improve this article. -- Tirkfltalk 11:50, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
Hello! I had a closer look on the article again, changed the spelling to BE, and corrected some typos. I also corrected some of the issues that you have posted at Wikipedia:Translation/Hesselberg. Please could you look through one more time, four eyes are seeing more than two... Thank you in advance for taking the time, Tirkfltalk 13:51, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Table[edit]

Thanks for adjusting the table at Gerlachovsky stit. Carca220nne (talk) 15:47, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

A great, spiffy table. Thank you very much. Carca220nne (talk) 13:59, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Hiking — The Park bylaws say that with the UIAA card, you're allowed to depart from a marked trail along the shortest approach route to the rock you want to climb. It's not quite so easy for them to be as restrictive when you have the card (but they can, the Park management often phrases its comments about visitors the way the police would comment on likely or actual criminals). For instance, no rule prevents an UIAA cardholder from taking a hikers' route to the top of a mountain in order take a more technical route down (which may then need to be abandoned for various reasons), but see above. I'd expect a good deal of snow and ice in May, but the main obstacle would be that the Park regulations don't allow anyone, card or not, even on the marked trails past several mountain chalets, meaning past the Sliezsky Dom Hotel in this instance, from Nov. 1 till June 15 each year. Carca220nne (talk) 18:43, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Informal peer review Boeing 747[edit]

Would you consider looking over the Boeing 747 article. I'm working with some other nice editors rewriting it. The first revision is nearing completion (except one section) and then we'll clean up the format of the reference. If you look at it, it need not be a formal peer review, just an informal opinion. I'm contacting two people, one of them you. We (at least me) are looking at just ideas for improvement, not necessarily GA or FA. Thank you. Archtransit (talk) 17:00, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Since this is not a formal peer review, I didn't put the tags on the talk page. You can let me know on my talk page or whereever you want. Archtransit (talk) 17:02, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

William Astle[edit]

FYI, William Astle was the editor of the Stockport Advertiser, and also of the Stockport Advertiser Centenary History of Stockport, see the title page here.

Neilston[edit]

Hello, I believe (from this list you are a volunteer for peer reviewing articles about settlements?

I wondered if you'd be interested in taking a breif look at Wikipedia:Peer review/Neilston/archive1 and give me some feedback. Hope you can help. No problem if not, -- Jza84 · (talk) 02:37, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Usage of Example.jpg[edit]

Hi there. Generally speaking, it's both easier and more efficient to use Example.png in this situation - plus it tends to get picked up less often by vandalism filters and such when it is used in place of Example.jpg. A particular robot which moved non-free images from both mainspace and Userspace was accidentally programmed to add the example.jpg to replace the non-free image rather than the example.png image as would have been the initial intention.

The original image you had used was apparently tagged as non-free, and thus was being targeted by the ImageBacklogBot - in actual fact it took me several days to work this out before I realized this was the case - I was curious as to why so many Examples of the example.jpg image had been added so quickly, particularly in Userspace.

As a compromise, I have reverted back to your version of the page, but using Image:Example.png instead of Example.jpg, if this is acceptable with you. Please contact me back if you wish. All the best. Bobo. 22:54, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Peer Review request[edit]

Hello. I wonder if I might ask you to take a look at Crawley and its peer review request at Wikipedia:Peer_review/Crawley/archive1. As you can see, Hassocks5489 spent quite a lot of time working on it over the summer, and we're now thinking of moving for FA status. Any tips would be most welcome. Thanks Tafkam (talk) 22:10, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello! I stumbled upon Wikipedia:Peer_review/Crawley/archive1 and read that you wondered if there was some sort of 'standard' for weatherbox background colours. The colours used in Template:Infobox weather and of some weatherboxes like the ones in Crawley and Weymouth were developed a while back, when we were finding a way of having them automatically used in Template:Infobox weather. There are by no means standard or official, but are used in many weatherboxes, as you can compare between articles more easily. They can be found at User:Rossenglish/Weatherbox if you're still interested in them =) RossEnglish 14:53, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
No problem. When you said about other weather data, I realised that the 'rain days' column could be used for any variable, so I generalised it (it hasn't been added to the template, but I've used it in some articles). I've taken a look at the Gerlachovský štít table, and the 'days with' and air temperature rows are now covered by User:Rossenglish/Weatherbox, and so is the precipitation row, except for the months with 19 cm (190 mm) of rain. The issue of high rainfall arose when deciding colours for Template:Infobox weather: the large range of precipitation for extreme climates would have stretched the colours too thinly, so we left it at 0 to 150 mm. If you do want to use Template:Infobox weather's colour scheme, for the 19 cm months, you could use #000032 and white font. I might see if I can extend the rainfall a bit, but there are only a few distinct colours left between navy and black =) RossEnglish 19:30, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Hendrik Wade Bode review request[edit]

Hi, I saw your name as a review volunteer. Is it possible to review Hendrik Wade Bode? I have set it up here. Thanks, Dr.K. (talk) 18:19, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Requesting peer review of Facebook[edit]

I noticed that you listed yourself as a volunteer for "Applied sciences and technology" subjects for peer review. I am requesting a peer review from you for Wikipedia:Peer review/Facebook/archive2, if you have the time. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 18:37, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Oil shale and Oil shale extraction[edit]

Hi, JMiall. I am going to nominate the Oil shale and Oil shale extraction articles for FAC. As the last peer reviews of these articles were not very productive, I wonder if you agree to take a look and give some advice and hard critics before proceeding with the FAC nomination? Thank you in advance. Beagel (talk) 19:49, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, JMiall. Thank you very much for reviewing the Oil shale article. It achieved FA status and your review was a great help in this process. I would like to ask also reviewing the Oil shale extraction article. Thank you. Beagel (talk) 19:15, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Peer review idea[edit]

Hi, I have made a proposal that no peer review request be archived without some response. To aid in this, there is a new list of PR requests at least one week old that have had no repsonses beyond a semi-automated peer review. This list is at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog.

There are just over 100 names on the PR volunteers page, so I figure if each of these volunteers reviewed just one or two PR requests without a response from the list each month, it would easily take care of the "no response" backlog (as there have been 2 or 3 such unanswered requests a day on average).

If you would be able to help out with a review or two a month from the "no responses" backlog list that would be great (and much appreciated). Please discuss questions, comments, or ideas at the PR talk page and thanks in advance for your help, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 00:15, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Requesting peer review of PHP[edit]

I noticed that you listed yourself as a volunteer for "Applied sciences and technology" subjects for peer review. I am requesting a peer review from you for Wikipedia:Peer review/PHP/archive2, if you have the time. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 21:11, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Milford_Everton_FC.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Milford_Everton_FC.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 19:35, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Peer review/Facebook/archive3[edit]

Hi, you peer reviewed Facebook a few weeks ago. If you have time, could you please take a second look at the article as it is now and post some comments at the peer review? Please let us know if the comments you posted last time have been addressed or not. I would like to bring the article to FAC soon, so any copyediting help would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 00:05, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Peer review/Copyedit[edit]

Hello. I'm looking for a copyedit/peer review on the solar energy page and your name came recommended by Beagel. I'd appreciate any and all help. Mrshaba (talk) 20:49, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

That sounds good to me. Thanks. Mrshaba (talk) 16:28, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your initial take. I can't get too defensive about the intro because I've avoided working on it for the most part. It will need several more iterations. The Greeks, Chinese and Pueblo thing got picked up in a paper shortly after I wrote it so it has sorta stuck. It seemed to strike a cord so to speak. I've replied to your initial comment on the talk page. Click Me Mrshaba (talk) 06:14, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the very specific follow up comments. One question, where should the discussion take place regarding the peer reviewer comments? Here? I also see some replies on the main peer review page? I've been moving them to the main talk page but this now seems incorrect? Mrshaba (talk) 17:15, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Good to know. Thanks for the review and info. Mrshaba (talk) 18:39, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Copyediting help[edit]

Hi, I noticed you offering your services in the Peer Review group for Electrical Engineering-related stuff. I was wondering if you'd mind having a go at Madman Muntz which I have up for FA review? The actual technical stuff isn't substantial, but figured it wouldn't hurt to have someone go over it anyway. Nobody of Consequence (talk) 00:17, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Request for Peer Review help[edit]

Thank you for you work as a peer review volunteer. Since March, there has been a concerted effort to make sure all peer review requests get some response. Requests that have gone three days or longer without a substantial response are listed at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog. I have three requests to help this continue.

1) If you are asked to do a peer review, please ask the person who made the request to also do a review, preferably of a request that has not yet had feedback. This is fairly simple, but helps. For example when I review requests on the backlog list, I close with Hope this helps. If my comments are useful, please consider peer reviewing an article, especially one at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog (which is how I found this article). Yours, ...

2) While there are several people who help with the backlog, lately I have been doing up to 3 or 4 peer reviews a day and can not keep this up much longer. We need help. Since there are now well over 100 names on the PR volunteers page, if each volunteer reviewed just one PR request without a response from the list each month, it would easily take care of the "no response" backlog. To help spread out the load, I suggest those willing pick a day of the month and do a review that day (for example, my first edit was on the 8th, so I could pick the 8th). Please pick a peer review request with no responses yet, if possible off the backlog list. If you want, leave a note on my talk page as to which day you picked and I will remind you each month.

3) I have made some proposals to add some limits to peer review requests at Wikipedia_talk:Peer_review#Proposed_limits. The idea is to prevent any one user from overly burdening the process. These seem fairly reasonable (one PR request per editor per day, only four total PR requests per editor at a time, PR requests with cleanup banners can be delisted (like GAN quick fail), and wait two weeks to relist a PR request after it is archived), but have gotten no feedback in one week. If you have any thoughts on these, please weigh in.

Thanks again for your help and in advance for any assistance with the backlog. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 21:25, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Oil shale extraction[edit]

Hi, JMiall. In spring, you conducted an informal review of the Oil shale extraction. Although the article was not promoted to the FA status, your review was a great help for improving the article. The main reason, why this article was not promoted, was a prose. However, I am going to renominate this article after some improvements. I hope you agree to review this article again and help to bring it to the FA level. Thank you in advance. Beagel (talk) 19:18, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Liechtenstein[edit]

Hi JMiall - just wanted you to know that, thanks largely to your great efforts on the subject, there is now a separate stub category for Liechtenstein geography (stub categories require about 60 stubs before they're made - your work pushed the total up to that point).

Thanks for signing up at Wikipedia:Peer review/volunteers and for your work doing reviews. It is now just over a year since the last peer review was archived with no repsonse after 14 (or more) days, something we all can be proud of.

Request for review: Talk:Conventional PCI#PCI bus protocol[edit]

Is that (proposed) new section intelligible to someone who hasn't read the specs themself? The main article footnotes include links to copies of the standard itself if you want to check it against sources, but just reading what's there would help. thanks! 71.41.210.146 (talk) 09:22, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Got your message about leaving for a week. If you don't have any violent objections, I may just paste it into the article and you can review it there when you get back. We'll see. Anyway, I hope you have an enjoyable/successful trip (as the case may be). 71.41.210.146 (talk) 10:53, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Now that you're back, here's a nudge. I added a second section on bus commands. I'm thinking of restructuring it to put the commands first. The first section would give a high-level description that talks about a transaction being made up of one address phase followed by N data phases, and the various things that can happen, but omitting the signal-level details. Then the second section would describe the signal operations in each phase. That would shrink the signal-level section and make the transaction-level section stand alone, which would probably be more useful to software developers. Any comments? 71.41.210.146 (talk) 23:46, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! Edits made, and your comments posted to Talk:Conventional PCI with responses interleaved. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 01:45, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Drei Schwestern[edit]

There seem to be a reasonable number of sites which claim that Kuhgrat is the highest peak in the Drei Schwestern - [1], for instance. Mind you, there also seem to be sites which claim it's nearby but not part of the group. Grutness...wha? 23:42, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Shale oil extraction[edit]

Hi, JMiall. One and half year ago you assisted to review the Shale oil extraction article. After extensive work with this article, there is a plan to renominate this article for FAC. I wonder if you still agree to take a look and assist by reviewing it before proceeding with the FAC renomination? Thank you in advance. Beagel (talk) 15:12, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I removed the sentence about the Rio Blanco Corporation. In general, it is to specific detail for the overall history of the shale oil industry. Beagel (talk) 09:11, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Seeking feedback article I created at Energetic neutral atoms - my first article.

Request for peer review of SENSOR-Pesticides article[edit]

Howdy, JMiall! I've been working on the SENSOR-Pesticides article for some time now, and I've finally submitted it for peer review. I saw you listed on the peer review volunteers page, so I thought I'd ask you to take a look and the page and offer your edits, comments, and suggestions. Thank you!

Hello again. Just wanted to let you know that I closed the PR after getting some good comments from other editors. When my supervisor comes back from his honeymoon, I'll have him look at it, and then I plan on submitting it for GA consideration, so maybe you can help there. I'll let you know when that happens, if you're willing to help. Thanks! MMagdalene722talk to me 13:54, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

UK Community Notice - IRC meeting[edit]

Dear Wikipedian,


This is the first of what will hopefully be a regular notice to help bring together the UK community so that you can be involved in some amazing things. To kick things off, there will be a UK community IRC meeting at 1800 UTC, December 7, 2010 to discuss the future growth and developement of Wikimedia UK. Without huge community support and involvement, the chapter cannot be successful and to get the most out of it, get involved.

For information on the community IRC meeting please go here


More to come about:

  • Wikipedia 10th Anniversary Events
  • 1st Annual UK Wiki-conference
  • Trustee interest meeting - an event for those community members with even just a fleeting interest in becoming trustees of Wikimedia UK.


Many Thanks

Editing Harry Huskey[edit]

I received a rapid response on my query on how to add a simple photograph. But I got completely lost in the Commons. There were pages and pages on beauty, rights, loading multiple photographs, but nothing I could do in the limited time I have. I am not a good photographer. I just wanted to add a simple photograph I took 20 December 196 It's not beautiful, but at least shows him and his wife. You can find and insert it from my webpages. It was taken with a minature camera using 8mm film. http://infolab.stanford.edu/pub/gio/personal/1965India/Khajaraho/Scan102.jpg There is also a better photograph taken by one of my colleagues http://infolab.stanford.edu/pub/gio/personal/1965India/IrvR/IIITKslides030.jpg

Requesting review of Folding@home[edit]

Hi there JMiall,

I saw that you've listed your name over at WP:PRV. I've been enthusiastically editing pretty extensively on Folding@home, and achieved GA status early last month. It's an article about a powerful distributed computing project which simulates protein folding for disease research, so I thought you might be interested. I'd like to improve the article as much as I can, and perhaps even reach FA status, so if you have a moment, I'd sure appreciate any advice or suggestions you may have. I've opened a peer review. Thank you for your time, Jesse V. (talk) 21:37, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

I think you win the prize for surprising me with such a thorough and detailed review. I appreciate you going above the "not my level of expertise, but things look all right to be" sort of a review. Anyway, I've responded to most of the issues you brought up, and I'm looking forward to more of your review whenever you have time to continue it. Jesse V. (talk) 18:19, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the peer-review, could you check my corrections and if they meet your approval could you cross them off? The <s></s> tags work for this. It would make it much easier for me to identify what issues remain. Thanks again for your helpful review! Jesse V. (talk) 17:01, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Stone Axe Factory[edit]

Those in charge of the archaeology in the Lake District are trying very hard to reduce the publicity given to the stone axe site on Scafell. If you are in any doubt on this matter, contact John Hodgson at the LDNPA. To quote from some correspondence that I have had with him "... because of the highly sensitive nature of the stone axe factory sites on Scafell Pike and the high number of visitors to the summit, we have attempted to keep detailed information about them out of the general public domain. There are various academic publications which detail these sites and I think that at least one book on scrambling routes may have made a mention, but generally they have been kept below the radar.

The sites around Langdale, which are much better known, have been severely damaged over the years by people casually collecting rough out axes. We hope to avoid this happening at the Scafell axe factories and I would therefore be very grateful if you would avoid mentioning them in your material for the web."

I think you could also compare the number of visitors to Scafell Pike and to Stonehenge, then compare the security arrangements to protect the two sites. The problem with putting the word "Scafell" in the article is that it gives ammunition for a Google search. Wikipedia is often the first stop for information - so if you start an internet search process, you have had a catalytic role in something with an undesirable outcome.

I am all for the free distribution of knowledge, but in this case I think Wikipedia has to be responsible. (There must be other things that Wikipedia refrains from going into detail about.) The reason that I was asked by the LDNPA not to mention the Scafell Pike site was that I intended to put this information in something I was putting on the internet - something that I had put many, many hours of work into. The plea from the Archaeology officer for the LDNPA changed my mind, and I did not include the information.

Please reconsider your position. ThoughtIdRetired (talk) 12:53, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

I have some sympathy but there are a number of problems with trying to censor this. You might want to see Wikipedia:Sensitive wildlife locations for a proposal with similar sentiment that failed to gain much support. Fundamentally you would need to censor the whole existence of the article on wikipedia to have your desired effect – anyone who came to the article accidentally and had the thought that they might try to find the locations would be able to do so as soon as they knew there were locations to find and the type of person who might look up locations in order to visit them around Langdale is easily the same type of person who might then visit them on Scafell. Also if you do a google search for 'Scafell pike wikipedia' then the Langdale axe industry article does not show up in the first x pages of results and I don't think that is likely to change.
So my basic position is that if there are multiple reliable published sources stating the locations then there is no reason not to include that information in the article. I don't think that any of the specific locations particularly need to be mentioned in the lead though (the article could also do with a bit of rearranging/rewriting).
I have no problem with your change of mind outside of wikipedia but one of the major agreed on policies of wikipedia is that it isn't censored. The main area where this doesn't apply is for living people (see WP:BLP) where there is more of a conservative attitude and assumption of privacy although I think a good chunk of the reason for this being in place is to avoid getting sued. JMiall 20:54, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
I have the feeling of an unstoppable juggernaut here. I suppose that, because the mention is in an article that is archaeological in nature, it is safer than if it appeared in the main Scafell Pike content. It is perhaps overly dismal to think that the mountain has already been trashed by the rubbish left by "3-peakers", so if people mess with the archaeology, that just follows the trend.
I think the issue, however, does put forward the idea that all Wikipedia editors have some level of social responsibility. A problem in practicing this is that some editors have a much more superficial understanding of a subject than might first appear to be the case. This is something that is encouraged by the "cricket scores" of articles started or edits made. In this particular instance, an editor with extensive knowledge of the subject would, in all probability, have exercised restraint in mentioning a site on Scawfell Pike.
