Formatting question[edit]

Hi TRM. Sorry for bothering you here, but I'm looking for some assistance and I don't know who to contact (I remember you from FLC, and this is a table-related question). I used to ask JohnFromPinckney about these sorts of things, but he doesn't appear to be active now. I've recently been working on 1804 dollar, and I have to add tables to list the nicknames of all fifteen known specimens of that particular coin. However, I don't really like the way the tables look, and I don't have enough coding knowledge to come up with something better. Do you know how I might improve it, or who I could ask? I think the difficult bit is incorporating the photos, but I'd like to add them because they're useful for illustrating the subject and I can't work them in anywhere else. Thanks in advance for your time.-RHM22 (talk) 03:07, 22 February 2015 (UTC) Hi again (sorry to be a bother). I've created a test here, which might be a better layout. Could you please give your opinion when you get around to it? I'm not in a hurry, by the way. Thanks in advance.-RHM22 (talk) 04:32, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Hey, no problem. I'll take a look into it. My initial instinct is to create a single table so at least the col widths are the same from class to class. I'll try to knock something up. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:45, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! It's the images which really make this one tough.-RHM22 (talk) 18:24, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Portman Road[edit]

Hope the rationale in the edit summary makes sense? Although there aren't any defunct ones in the Suffolk cat, there are in others. Plus, as I said, it's quite useful to have all the English grounds in one category (helps spot the ones that shouldn't have articlea or are misnamed for a start). Cheers, Number 57 00:03, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Edit: Just seen that my summary missed out the word "defunct" (this is why I don't like editing on my phone...). Number 57 00:05, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Another list of Somerset scheduled monuments at FLC[edit]

As you have previously commented on one or more of nominations of the lists of scheduled monuments in Somerset, I wondered if you would be kind enough to take a look at the List of scheduled monuments in Sedgemoor which is now nominated at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of scheduled monuments in Sedgemoor/archive1?— Rod talk 21:13, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Sure thing. The Rambling Man (talk) 21:19, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Daytona 500 ITNR[edit]

Does this look okay? Is there anything I could do to improve it or make the proposal more official? Thanks again, --Bentvfan54321 (talk) 21:59, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

I'd link the previous times it's already been shown at ITN, I think you said it had been posted twice in the last three years? That always gives some gravitas to the nominations. The Rambling Man (talk) 22:01, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/The Boat Race 2012[edit]

Two quick things: (1) did you get a ping when I filled out the template and it automatically signed my name as it was substituted? I've always wondered whether that happened! (2) the nomination will be live as soon as a slot becomes free at WP:TFAR - at the moment, all 10 specific date slots are full, but it won't be long... BencherliteTalk 09:57, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Indeed I was pinged, and thank you for your efforts! The Rambling Man (talk) 10:04, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
And we're green for go. BencherliteTalk 22:49, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

In the News[edit]

Hey, I want to nominate an article for In the News, but I've never done it before. Found the instructions a bit confusing lol  — ₳aron 12:45, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

I can nominate it on your behalf if you like? The Rambling Man (talk) 13:25, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Okay cool thanks. It was for Madonna falling off stage at the Brit Awards last night when she didn't undo her cape in time and got yanked down the stairs by her neck by the dancers who thought she had undone while performing "Living for Love", which is the article I would nominate.  — ₳aron 13:40, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok, if you want my advice, I think this will be snow closed as titillation, and perhaps with a suggestion to nominate one of the target articles as a DYK, but if you're sure you'd like me to nominate it, I'll do so. If so, let me know what blurb you'd like. The Rambling Man (talk) 13:42, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Ah okay. Is it not important enough? It was shown on the ITV news about 10 minutes after it happened. Clips were posted online almost instantly and it's already had about million views or more collectively. It's also the second thing up comes up in Google if you type "mad" into the search bar, for Madonna falls.  — ₳aron 13:44, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Absolutely zero chance that "pop star falls over while singing" will be accepted at ITN. BencherliteTalk 13:45, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Okay, fine. But she didn't just fall over. She fell backwards down some stairs and being pulled by a cape around her neck that was done up too tight. It wasn't just a trip or a stumble over nothing. I'm not really familiar with INT, but like it or not, Madonna is all over the news today.  — ₳aron 13:49, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I've seen the clip too, but the wording doesn't matter. ITN won't post it because the story is completely unimportant. Try Wikinews if you want which has a different approach. BencherliteTalk 14:07, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
