AfD nomination of Old calton cemetery[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Old calton cemetery. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Old calton cemetery. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:06, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Stephen, thank you for adding this detailed article. Hopefully it won't get deleted as its a fine topic for inclusion. However, Wikipedia requires all articles to be fully verifiable. This is one of the so-called "five pillars of Wikipedia", and means that everything should be referenced to sources which can be checked by anyone. So, your statement that the reference for this article is an unpublished leaflet is not sufficient. Presumably, you have done some extensive research into the topic, and can call on a range of sources for the information you have added. The best approach would therefore be to cite these sources directly, whether they be information in books or primary sources such as Town Council records. I hope you can assist in this, as its not often that someone is willing to add the results of such detailed research to the encyclopedia! Your efforts will certainly be appreciated by myself and other members of WikiProject Edinburgh, an informal collaboration seeking to improve Edinburgh-related articles. Please feel free to contact me if you need any help. Regards, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 11:55, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

15th Battalion Royal Scots[edit]

Stephen, Do you know of this chap from the Royal scots?

New Police chief for Argyll. Newspaper cutting from: The Glasgow Herald – 21 July 1927. Inspector Donald A. Ross, Edinburgh Police, has been appointed Chief Constable of Argyllshire. The new Chief Constable is 33 years of age, was educated at George Watson’s College, Edinburgh and after leaving school entered the law office of Messrs Norman Macpherson and Dunlop, S.S.C., Edinburgh, where he remained till the outbreak of the Great War. He voluntarily enlisted in the 15th Battalion Royal Scots in September 1915, and in January of the following year received a commission in that regiment. He was on active service in France, Belgium and Russia from 1915 to 1920. In 1920 he joined the Edinburgh City Police. He was an Inspector in the Chief Clerk’s department, where he closely studied police work with special reference to its administrative details. Mr Ross is a son of Mr. Roderick Ross, Chief Constable of Edinburgh.

Best regardsBeckenhamBear (talk) 15:38, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

I have a list of several thousand men organised by serial number... there are a few gaps..The date of enlistment fits with the early period when they were organising groups alphabetically and I have a gap at 17736 between Thomas Robertson and James L Ruxton where he would fit nicely.

What I can tell from other sites (National Archive:Campaign Medals WW1) is that Donald A Ross did NOT get a campaign medal for the war... which normally means that they were invalided out before the conclusion.

The Russian bit is always interesting . People always assume it all ended in Nov 1918... but not for everyone. Several battalions were dispatched to Archangel in Russia effectively to sort out the rebellious Russians who dropped out of WW1 early and were to some degree being punished (all very pointless) ... of the wider group I am looking at (15th was disbanded by then and men moved to other battalions) around 20 to 30 died in Russia in 1919 and are listed on the archangel Memorial..

Some war medals read "The Great War: 1914 to 1919"... I have one at home.

Does this help??

I have tentatively added Donald A Ross into my list at 17736--Stephencdickson (talk) 12:27, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Kilconquhar and minor edits[edit]

I noted with interest your edits to the Kilconquhar article. Can I point out howevere that these were not minor edits so you should not mark them so. For clarification, read WP:MINOR.

Also, your edits were largely unreferenced. Can you please cite them and, for the one reference you did give, can you include the name of the publisher, the relevant page nos. and, if possible, ISBN no.?

All the best, Mutt Lunker (talk) 22:21, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

I notice that you continue to make edits, some quite substantial, without indicating the verifiability of the material. Wikipedia's "content is determined by previously published information rather than by the personal beliefs or experiences of its editors. Even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it.". Please read WP:V if you do not understand the importance of this or ask me if you require help. Mutt Lunker (talk) 17:33, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
...and you continue to mark edits as minor when they are not. Please stop doing this. Mutt Lunker (talk) 23:17, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Hi Stephen, I replied to your post on my talk page a few days ago but it occurred to me you may have been expecting any reply to be here (I'd noticed you're still marking all edits as minor, so presumably hadn't read my explanation as to why that is problematic). Hope you find it of use. Mutt Lunker (talk) 11:45, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

More appreciation for you diligence in regards to reward-less efforts on this site despite hard work, as neither the collateral nor the result matter as long as knowledge is preserved and spread for good cause.

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Thank you for the diligent work in establishing which beer was which specific brew and etc. for the wine connoisseur lacking brewing knowledge.

Henderson Street edits[edit]

Hi Stephen, You made an edit on Wikipedia's Henderson Street article recently(re Street lighting) - as follows:

Unusually for the period these at no point were gas lamps. They were built as electric street lights, amongst the first in Britain, in 1891, the first being confined solely to the Shore area. Their height (far too high to light a gas lamp) evidences their original function. Several (including most of those on the Shore) are recent replicas of the Victorian originals recast using one old one as a mould. These date from the early works of the Leith Project, and were completed around 1983. I have temporarily removed this text as it does not have any verifiable sources or references. Can you provide some? i.e. - What is your verifiable source for dating these lights to 1891? Can you provide a verifiable source for the assertion that the lights were originally confined to the Shore area? Again, a verifiable source is required to prove that (some) of these lights are recent recasts - a verifiable indication of which ones would also be useful, if you happen to know.... You say one old mould was used for recasts. Perhaps you know this from personal involvement in the project - but it still needs a verifiable source. You say these recasts date from the Leith Project around 1983. Good to know - but again, you haven't backed this up with a citation from a verifiable source. I'm sure you can appreciate the need for all users to be able to check that your information is correct. Best Lisaseventyfive (talk) 12:17, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Leith Mural pic[edit]

Thanks for your message. I'll investigate. One of my Leith-born relatives who was a child during the Great War had an abiding interest in the Gretna rail disaster and it was probably from her that I was given the erroneous idea that it was a "Leith Pals" Battalion. I'll sort it out. Kim Traynor | Talk 18:43, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

I've checked the edits history for the page and find that I don't feature as a contributor. That means someone else posted the image and created the caption, likely misled by my caption on Commons which misidentified the soldiers as belonging to a Pals Battalion. I've removed the image from the page and amended the Commons caption. Kim Traynor | Talk 18:53, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

No, it is not. The problem is that you are marking all your edits as minor. That isn't allowed. It's a relatively simple point; if you're in doubt, don't mark it as minor. If anybody could possibly object to the change, don't mark it as minor. Again, ping me if you need help. --John (talk) 20:42, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi The photo you added of the grave inscription is actually that of John Ritchie Findlay's (1824-1898) eldest son Sir John Ritchie Findlay (1866-1930). (Unimaginative child naming!)

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Waldhorn. I noticed that you made a change to an article, St Pancras Old Church, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.  —Waldhorn (talk) 04:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC) The source is standing in the church and reading the gravestone!!! I note the names and then cross check who in the graveyard is mentioned in Wikipedia but does not have their grave location shown, It seems anti-productive to remove such information and you are the first person to ever remove such useful information on the basis that it is not written down somewhere. The graveyard itself is a public place and the information is verifiable in that sense. On the articles of those referred to I give a precise grave location to add future searchers as "in the cemetery" is too vague". I can refer upwards in Wikipedia if you are not happy with my response but my normal grave-location excersises are usually received with thanks from Wikipedia rather than REMOVED> you must remember the PURPOSE of such information. Are YOU claiming these people are NOT there? Go and look for yourself before you delete!!--Stephencdickson (talk) 09:42, 25 September 2014 (UTC) By the way, I was planning to edit the article further, adding the names of those already with Wikipedia articles listed on the Burdett Coutts Memorial to "graves" lost... this includes Sir John Gurney... whose monument is still there and legible...the only issue on his monument is that due to the building of the railway his inscription faces the boundary.. but it is odd that no-one has the gumption to stick there head around and read the reverse. Each of my additions can be checked in PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF on the articles of the persons involved--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:00, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Is there any point of me adding further edits re the Burdett Coutts memorial or would you also remove that??--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:04, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Stephencdickson. Thank you for your questions. Are you able to insert citations in the St Pancras Old Church article, either via a secondary source, such as a published book, or at least create a reference describing the location within the church building? Alternately, in the case of multiple burials, perhaps would you be able to create a media gallery showing images that corroborate your additions? Otherwise, your edits look like very much like WP:OR, which is best to avoid. But, I suspect that you have some valuable source material that can be added to an article like this with a bit of work. Let me know your thoughts. Regards —Waldhorn (talk) 08:15, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

I am happy to add photographic proof but it would clutter the article. The John Gurney grave is perhaps the oddest omission as it is pretty big, in good condition, and still legible... its only issue is that it faces a hedge as it has been cut short on setting due to the railway... amusingly even Baroness Burdett Coutts researchers seem to have missed it.. as no-one seems to have ever popped their head round the back...I have already added photographic proof to those names I added on their own article... but I know Wikipedia does not allow use of Wikipedia as a reference as it creates a viscous circle in cases of error... that said much written referencing is unreliable...personally, where graves are concerned, I believe my own eyes... if there is a large monument with the correct name, dates and background then it is the correct grave... that said "in memory of" often alludes to bodies buried elsewhere...It would seem a shame to remove these useful additions I made. If I search and search I may find a book that backs it up.. but on other graveyards and cemetery articles which I have written or edited I have not been previously challenged on this sort of addition...--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:11, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Notice of No Original Research Noticeboard discussion[edit]

Hello, Stephencdickson. This message is being sent to inform you that a discussion is taking place at Wikipedia:No original research/Noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is St Pancras Old Church OR. Thank you. -- —Waldhorn (talk) 06:13, 1 October 2014 (UTC) I added a source as you requested, plus corroborative photos, so I am not sure what your continuing issue is?? I find it frustrating when references state things like "buried in Cemetery X" when cemetery X contains 30,000 to 50,000 graves....pinpointing locations is useful but is only instigated by someone pointing out that the grave is in there in the first place? do you understand the logic? there is little point giving a cemetery without a location... it serves as much function as saying that someone is in the phone book without giving a number... it may have been polite to have responded to my last point and re-read the article before complaining--Stephencdickson (talk) 23:46, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi - Thanks for your edits to Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener. The photos you are adding make a real contribution in illustrating the articles. Please can you ensure you add a reference to your comments as required by WP:SOURCE especially where you are editing an assessed article. In this case it was easy to add a reference and I have done it for you rather than removing the narrative. Thanks in anticipation. Dormskirk (talk) 20:37, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Adding images at random?[edit]

Hi, I've removed an image from the Banks article, and note that you are adding many images to many articles, not quite sure why - but I see that several are from Wedgewood: this suggests that you may have a trove of Wedgewood images, and are looking about for a home for them? This is a backwards way of building articles, and is as likely to make them worse as better. In the case of the Banks article, there are certainly (more than) enough images of the man there already, and more is definitely worse. Please try to be selective in your additions to Wikipedia; it is already useful to add the images to Commons, and if you have many from one source or on one topic, it would be good to make Commons pages of those images, rather than trying to cram them all into Wikipedia willy-nilly.

If you do find an article without too many images already, do consider not adding at or near the top: many of your Wedgewood images have a 'legacy' feel to them, so they may make more sense near the end, as long as you steer clear of disturbing the formatting of the References list.

One more thing: if you are adding tall (portrait) images, they should be upright, i.e. |upright|thumb|filename... so they occupy about the same area as a standard landscape image. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk)

Rather than a "treasure trove" I was simply adding a small number of images from the British Museum, mainly looking to populate little or unillustrated articles. I admit Banks has several images but none in relief or low relief so I felt it was not a redundant exercise--Stephencdickson (talk) 21:03, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Glad to hear it's not very many, and that we agree about Banks. However I note that you're still not marking images 'upright'. Chiswick Chap (talk) 21:40, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Please give more thought to your edit summaries. "addition" isn't a very meaingful comment (and "--~~~~~" doesn't work there). -- Pemilligan (talk) 18:58, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Restored back to its ungrammatical unuseful form... well done.. very constructive... if i put "bad grammar" it might be accurate but I do not wish to upset the author --Stephencdickson (talk) 19:13, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
If your change to Gunman's Walk had just been a matter of grammar, then "bad grammar" would have been a good edit summary. The problem with your addition, as I expressed in the edit summary, was the appearance of original research (though it appeared to be an expression of opinion, too). It would have been appropriate to provide a supporting citation given the new content you were adding. -- Pemilligan (talk) 20:01, 29 November 2014 (UTC) sounds a bit hypocritical given that much of your own additions appear original research--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:41, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
