London Wall[edit]

Is the Tower of London really considered one of the "gates" of the wall? Please could you provide a verifiable source that proves this? --TBM10 (talk) 07:16, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Not the Tower itself, it's just the location of Posterngate: http://www.oxbowbooks.com/oxbow/the-medieval-postern-gate-by-the-tower-of-london.html
However, it appears that it may not be counted as one of the traditional eight gates (although there are definitely eight, not seven). This website gives "Aldgate, Bishopsgate, Moorgate, Cripplegate, Aldersgate, Newgate, Ludgate and Billingsgate," and this one has the eighth gate as Temple Bar. I'll keep looking for a definitive list, and I'll accept that Posterngate is probay not one of the traditional ones, but I've always understood there to be 8.

This account seems pretty comprehensive: http://www.onceuponawhat.com/1/post/2013/02/february-22nd-2013.html
Seven may indeed be right after all. Richard75 (talk) 14:56, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
From the Museum of London's archives page: "The six main medieval gates were Aldgate, Bishopsgate, Cripplegate, Aldersgate, Newgate and Ludgate ... There were also smaller postern gates, for pedestrians, like the one by Tower Hill. However, these are not usually included in any count of the number of gates. One of these posterns was at Moorgate which was pulled down in 1415 and a new larger gate built, so that in most counts after that, Moorgate became the seventh gate." I always thought seven was the correct count but it seems like one of those things that will never be exactly known for certain! --TBM10 (talk) 18:26, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
Incidentally, and funnily enough as it made me think of this discussion, I was standing in a pub in the City yesterday which had an old poster framed on the wall featuring drawings of the seven gates of the London Wall: Aldgate, Bishopsgate, Cripplegate, Aldersgate, Moorgate, Newgate and Ludgate. --TBM10 (talk) 00:28, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for this edit. The wording on the source page got me mixed up and so I wasn't sure if the second reading had occurred or not. 101090ABC (talk) 06:23, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Scorpion Swamp[edit]

Yes, I've seen it. Unfortunately it like so many other reviews is fan-based, and as such is very bias. If there were more published articles from reputable sources it would be much easier. Regards Asgardian (talk) 09:56, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

I may have found something (took a while!). Hopefully up in next 24 hrs. Asgardian (talk) 13:51, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
The tidy-up is going well, however, there's a random IP user who is insisting on their POV and reverting, despite a lack of sources. If you have time have a look at Talk for Creature of Havoc. Regards Asgardian (talk) 02:34, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Further to this, could use your help if our "friend" reverts again. Some discussion here ([1]).

Replaceable fair use File:Elizabeth Cross.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Elizabeth Cross.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (Message me) 22:12, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
