Hi there, forgive me for asking, but I haven't seen any Metropolitan newsletters come out in a while. Any particular reason for it? Just being nosy really. --Tom... the magic... TomatoTalk 13:50, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I've noticed you changed H Sq to Birkenhead HSq as this is the official name. I checked on Merseyrail here and it still records it as Hamilton Square. Just thought i'd check with you? Babydoll9799 (talk) 22:09, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

RE: Acton Town and other areas[edit]

I see, thank you for explaining this to me, I guess you learn something new everyday. However, the coordinates I have placed for North Acton were just south of Harlesden; Harlesden is in the London Borough of Brent. Nomodomolee (talk) 18:43, 1 October 2013 (UTC)Nomodomolee.

Pensford Viaduct[edit]

Thanks for your comment at Template:Did you know nominations/Pensford Viaduct. The proposed sale was in 1984 (according to This source) which I've added to the article. Do you think the year needs to be in the hook as well? Is there anything else you think is needed?— Rod talk 09:06, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks I've added that ref as well (it was previously being used for other claims in the article).— Rod talk 18:27, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
On re reading your message ... I don't have any further details of publication for the newspaper clipping but reading the last line where it says "Write and tell the Gazette your views" I guess this relates to the Chew Valley Gazette and as it uses the current tense "is up for sale" I would guess it was published in 1984. I knew the previous editor & have been "introduced" to the current editor so could email them to ask them to check their archive if you think it is worth it?— Rod talk 20:33, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

James Cook railway station[edit]

Hi Simply south. I think that the formal name for the new station will be "James Cook University Hospital" rather than just "James Cook". Although the Esk Valley Railway site calls it "James Cook" in the blog post you referred to, I think this is just shorthand rather than the official name (in the same way as you might use "New Street" as shorthand for the Birmingham New Street.

The Network Rail planning documents show the names as JCUH - see http://edrms.middlesbrough.gov.uk/AnitePublicDocs/03804327.pdf as does the e-NRT http://www.networkrail.co.uk/browse%20documents/eNRT/Dec13/Stations_Index_and_Table_Numbers.pdf (page 16). (Crookesmoor talk) 16:19, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Sorry, I've corrected the signature. However, if you search on www.nationalrail.co.uk for journeys from Middlesbrough to Nunthorpe from 18 May, it shows the full JCUH name. Crookesmoor (talk) 16:39, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Methil (name)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Methil (name) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No reliable sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Moving articles[edit]

It is adviseable not to move articles without first discussing the proposal on the article talk page and seeking consensus for the move. This is particularly important when the existing name has been accepted by the community for some time. You most certainly should not have unilaterally moved the article again once someone objected (WP:BRD).

In the case of two of the articles, Northeast America blackout of 2003 and Northeast America blackout of 1965, the article names have already been the subject of debate and the current names were decided upon by consensus. You therefore had no right to change them without seeking further consensus. In my view: your revised article names do not meet the requirement for article naming as the revised names are not something that anyone looking for information on the subject are likely to use as a search key (See WP:TITLE for more).

Your final transgression was to move the above two articles twice in succession. This is strict no no, because it completely screws up the ability to easily undo the damage because it is not possible to do a double move back. It has taken me over half an hour to restore things back to the accepted version. I B Wright (talk) 13:07, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

UPDATE: I have now got all 3 articles move protected so if you wish to continue with this you will have to propose it on the talk page. I B Wright (talk) 15:48, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

As you are obviously unaware[edit]

There is no point adding 'noredirect' to links to other articles (whether they exist or not). 'noredirect' has no actual functionality. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 14:54, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Not correct. It doesn't change a thing. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 12:40, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
STOP PRESS: In this context it does have an effect but only because redirect pages have been inadvertently created. Normally, with a proposed article move, the proposed name change is to a location that does not exist and consequently [[No article here]] and {{noredirect|No article here}} do exactly the same thing as you can try for yourself with No article here and No article here.
