Latest Brighton article improvements[edit]

Hi! It's nice to see you back and keeping an eye on the Brighton article.

I'd like to tweak a couple of your changes today, but thought I'd run them by you first. It seems a shame to lose the fact that the Lanes do follow some of the street pattern of the original fishing settlement. (I'm presuming you haven't come up with anything that says that is a myth?) And I'd like to reinstate or replace some of the wording which mentioned the early settlement in that context.

And as for Atlingworth... interesting. I'm particularly interested cos my Brighton address is on Atlingworth Street. I have seen a map (I think it was a 1904 one, in an atlas of England, but I'll need to check) labelling the area as a Laine, so the Manor reference is not, perhaps, mutually exclusive. Does your source shed more detail on this? In the absense of a categorical disproof, I think a published map is good enough source material to justify putting the Laine reference back. Whadya reckon? – Kieran T (talk | contribs) 20:56, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi Kieran, sorry for the delay in responding. Been a bit busy. When I researched the Domesday entry for Brighton, I'm pretty certain I read about "Atlingworth" being in recongnition of one the ancient manors. However, I must admit I have no source to verify this with. Hmm. I'll try and find out in better detail. However, I'm pretty certain that the only laines were: Little Laine, Hilly Laine, West Laine and North Laine. Possibly East Laine. I think Little Laine was where sort of St James's Street is around. I'll research and get back to you. Although my bold outpouring of opinion of the Brighton talk page might not be followed up with much action from me at the moment. I'm trying to just work on Wikipedia once a week otherwise it'll take over my life! --Seaweed 16:14, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
I found the source I was after. In the Historical Atlas of Sussex(p.94), there is a map of Brighton parish c.1740 which has been prepared from some other sources. The area is divided into:
  • "Town" (bounded by West Street, North Street, The Steine and the sea)
  • West Laine (west of West Street up to Hove parish)
  • North Laine (north of North Street up to Preston Parish)
  • Hilly Laine (sort-of Islingword Road accross to Queens Park Road down to Edward Street)
  • Little Laine (quite small, just east of the Steine to about Rock Gardens, and
  • East Laine (beyond Little Laine to about Lewes Crescent and north to the Bristol Estate).
So no Atlingworth Laine I'm afraid. I'm still pretty certain Atlingworth originates regarding one of the ancient manors, but I'm still scratching my head on where I read that. --Seaweed 21:58, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Interesting stuff – thanks for remembering and coming back to it :-) – Kieran T (talk | contribs) 22:00, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Whitehawk[edit]

I've added a full history of Whitehawk, as someone who has an interest in Brighton articles, I'd really appreciate it if you could do a proof read for me at some point. Feel free to correct anything that needs it. I am planning on expanding the Brighton Marina article as my next project. If your interested, I also put in an article on the legendary Peter Ward, found at Peter Ward (English footballer), although I desperately need a picture of him in Brighton kit that is eligible to be uploaded to wikipedia! Thanks. Fork me 09:02, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

New WikiProject for Brighton[edit]

Hi. If you read this, user:Kierant suggested I should contact you as someone who has put in a lot of work on Brighton-related articles. Thanks to the initiative of user:Unisouth, there is a new WikiProject for Brighton and Hove articles. Getting new members is an urgent task and if you wanted to join it would be very welcome indeed. However, I appreciate that you may not be contributing much or at all at the moment. Best wishes. Itsmejudith 16:40, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Jim_Moray.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Jim_Moray.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 22:58, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Early doors4.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 06:52, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:58, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Brighton Racecourse[edit]

Dear Seaweed, I would like to understand why you have deleted so much of my text on this subject. There may have only been a few citations, but the material was all from the book I wrote about the history of the course and I saw no point in repeatedly citing the same source. There is no copyright issue as regards the similar text on the racecourse website; I wrote it for them using information from the book. I am a novice on Wikipedia and appreciate I may not know all the rules, but your help in clarifying this would be appreciated. Ravel59 (talk) 13:41, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Re: Ryan Collinson article, thank you.[edit]

Seaweed, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your recent contribution in adding internal link references to the Ryan Collinson article I created not too long ago. My forte is writing and most decidedly not technical expertise, which is typical of my generation. So I always appreciate any help I can get on that front.

I have no interest whatsoever in this particular subject. I’m not English. However, when I happened upon a video of Mr. Collinson reprising his Billy Elliot performance, I thought he was exceptionally good. When I saw that there was no Wikipedia article for him as yet, I finally saw my chance to actually create an article rather than simply editing articles as I have done often (usually to correct typos and grammatical errors). Since many other Billy Elliot performers had articles, I thought it appropriate, especially as he had the West End title/lead role. I liked the idea of creating an article about one so young; sort of getting in on the ground floor. I do think that with young Mr. Collinson’s tremendous talent and photogenic appearance that—assuming such is his desire—he has a real shot of making it big in entertainment one day. Therefore, I hope the humble article I created will grow over the years and that I might take a small measure of pride in the “anonymous notability” I might have achieved, perhaps similar to the feeling of whomever started the article on, for example, Taylor Swift and that the article will endure long after I’m gone!

Thanks again, Seaweed, and if you have more interest in British theater than I do, I hope you will keep tabs on the subject and perhaps consider adding substantive material as the subject’s professional resume hopefully blossoms with time! Best regards.HistoryBuff14 (talk) 14:48, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Daniel Hill, actor, publicity shot.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Daniel Hill, actor, publicity shot.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

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. Stefan2 (talk) 14:16, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Columbus tower[edit]

Thank you seaweed for the update. I have a interest in buildings and construction, so try too add my bit :). It would be brilliant and very helpful if you could assist me with some help. I'm currently making a list of buildings over the height of 150 metres (skyscraper), it is called, List of cities by number of skyscrapers. It is situated on the page ,List of cities with the most skyscrapers. I have made a header titled, List of cities by number of skyscrapers. Then below it it I have constructed a table to list cities in order of how many skyscrapers they have. However for some reason the table I have constructed skips my header and lies below the next header. I wondered if you know why this happens and could possibly fix the problem.
