Tower42 skyline[edit]

Hi Wjfox,

Just thought I would congratulate you on your photo Image:Tower42skyline.jpg. I've tried taking this picture from Westminster Bridge(?) myself on two or three occaisions, but everytime I've decided that the result was too murky with poor atmospheric visibility. This one looks nice and clean. -- Solipsist 30 June 2005 12:54 (UTC)

Ahh sorry. I've just realised that perhaps you didn't take this photograph. In any case, this picture needs an appropriate Image copyright tag on its image description page. and possibly source information, as do the other images you've uploaded. Drop me a note on my talk page, if you need any help with this. -- Solipsist 30 June 2005 13:18 (UTC)
This also applies for your other images. Yesterday I wanted to copy this photography to Wikimedia Commons (because we wanted to use it in de:), but unfortunately the copyright information was missing, so we could not use it. Maybe you load your images to commons direcly next time, that would be nice of you. Greetings from Germany. --Stefan 22:59, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
Thank you for PD! --Stefan 12:19, 4 September 2005 (UTC)

London is "very cosmopolitan"[edit]

Please explain to me why you keep inserting "very" into the London article. The claim that London is "very cosmopolitan" is hard to justify since there is no objective way to measure "cosmopolitan-ness", so how can we say that London is "very" cosmopolitan, while other cities (presumably) are merely cosmopolitan. Your addition makes the article less neutral. I should also let you know that Wikipedia has a policy against making more than three reverts every 24 hours. Please do not put this edit back into the London article. Thanks, Gwernol 23:33, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Oh for pity's sake. It should be blindingly obvious that London is "very" cosmopolitan - just as New York is "very" dense and highrise, Tokyo is "very" futuristic, Paris is "very" beautiful, etc. You don't have to conduct some kind of test or study to come to this conclusion. Just take a stroll around the West End and you'll see the overwhelming multitude of different peoples and cultures flowing from literally every corner of the globe. Look at the countless different neighbourhoods around the city, occupied by French, German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, African, Australian, Chinese, Russian, American, Arab, etc. etc... All of these people manage to live together in harmony. More languages are spoken in London than any other city in the world. I think you're being incredibly anal.

London financial[edit]

London is indisputably the greatest financial center in Europe, so I reverted your recent change; please justify in discussion on London page if you wish to make such a change. MarkThomas 22:47, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair enough, but leave out any mention of Paris and New York...... *please*. This shouldn't turn into some kind of "City vs City" competition. Wjfox2005 23:50, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Those points seem a bit unrelated and I would agree if I could see where you mean; in what sense is it running a businesscompetition? I see references to other world cities, but as London assuredly is one of the principal world cities, these seems reasonable? MarkThomas 22:54, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

The no.1 rule with Wikipedia is that everything is meant to be neutral. By mentioning Paris and New York, and saying London is "the greatest", etc. you're making it sound biased and skewed by your opinion. It's COMPLETELY unnecessary to mention other cities in the opening few paragraphs. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of London and I agree with you that it's the greatest - but you have to adhere to certain rules with Wikipedia. Also, I noticed that Heathrow was given as the busiest airport. This is plain wrong. Atlanta in the USA receives more traffic. London is only the busiest city if you include all 5 of the airports within its metropolitan area. Wjfox2005 23:55, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

You are letting your own biases creep in here. Heathrow is widely acknowledged to be the worlds busiest _international_ airport; true that US airports handle more traffic but mostly local. You also keep removing the financial centre information which is clearly true. My opinion is this is just vandalism on your part. MarkThomas 10:21, 16 September 2006 (UTC)


Okay, for international air travel then fair enough. But coming back to the financial information - why do you need to state that it's the biggest in EUROPE, when it already says it's an "international leader in finance" and provides a direct citation showing it's #1 in the WORLD? Surely you can see it's completely superfluous! Wjfox2005 11:32, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

I agree, and I've attempted to wikify the opening para - see what you think? :-) MarkThomas 10:36, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
I have attempted to be very reasonable with you, but you persist in vandalising the London page on spurious grounds and swearing / making offensive remarks on pages. Any future edits to the London page you make will be immediately reverted and reported as vandalism. You have been warned. MarkThomas 17:37, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Next step is to report you. Please confirm this by vandalising London again if you want that to happen! MarkThomas 17:40, 16 September 2006 (UTC)


Okay, okay. Listen mate. Firstly, I apologise sincerely for my swearing and insulting on your talkpage. Believe me, I'm no troll, I don't deserve to be banned. In fact, I'm actually a moderator for another site, and I don't normally resort to such language... but I feel very strongly about London and in particular its position with regards to finance. I've been a contributor to the article for some time. It seemed that everyone had managed to agree on the opening few paragraphs and they hadn't really changed for several months. You then came along and proposed a couple of changes which I really, really didn't agree with, and which seemed very wrong.

Following your explanation, I'm fine with Heathrow being called the world's busiest airport, as you've explained this refers to international travel rather than local flights. I also don't mind a few more tourist attractions being added to the final paragraph either.

What I still strongly disagree with, however - and surely you will understand why - is the description of London as "the largest financial centre in Europe". Whilst this is of course true, it clearly doesn't go far enough! There are 7 continents on this planet. London is more than just the largest financial centre in one continent. It is rivalled only by New York in terms of global financial power... in fact the 2 cities have been described as the only genuinely global financial centres and this position is unlikely to change in the near future.

I could provide several more facts, for example the London foreign currency exchange is the largest in the world, with an average daily turnover more than New York and Tokyo combined. More than half (56 per cent) of the global foreign equity market is traded in London. There are also twice as many international banks in London as there are in New York. London is the biggest market in the world for derivatives traded over-the-counter, with 36 per cent of global turnover. In terms of hedge funds, London is the main centre. For metals, the IME in London is the main centre, and the price of gold is 'fixed' in London every day. For bond trading and international bank lending, London is the main centre (for example, when New York needed bonds for its subway, it turned to Deutsche Bank's office in London for the work). London also has the biggest insurance market (for example, the WTC twin towers were insured through Lloyds of London). Another point to note is that salaries in the City of London are now beginning to surpass those in Manhattan.

New York obviously has a greater role as a business centre and an economic power, but if we're talking specifically about the realm of financial services then London is arguably the leader and in terms of rivals there are certainly no other cities apart from New York which can match its power. In recent years London has further increased its lead over the likes of Tokyo, Paris, Frankfurt, etc. by just about every conceivable measure.

So please, surely you can see, it makes sense to revert the article back to how it was before. All I'm asking is that you change that one sentence - i.e. "an important settlement for around two millenia, London is now an international leader in finance".

Wjfox2005 16:44, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, apology totally accepted. Interesting comments you make - I do agree there is contention that London / New York vie for "lead financial center of the planet", but I would hesitate to say outright that London is the world's leading financial centre. First off I think there would be so many disagreements and as your own comments above suggest, lots and lots of counter-claims and vicious debates. But I'm also doubtful myself that it could outright claim to the the worlds leading financial centre and I do take on board your points about distinguishing finance from business and so on. These opening bursts are always the focus of debate because we have to say in a few words what it is. I think most people still believe New York to be the world's leading financial centre, and we would probably want to avoid getting bogged down in the semantic debate about what exactly the difference between the financial centre and the business centre is in the opening burst. Not sure also that everyone would agree with you about that distinction, or that you are right to distinguish it so precisely. To take one example, does investment banking come under finance or business? If the former, New York wins hands down on it, with I believe 4 out of 5 of the worlds' leading investment banks... we could go on.... I'm not fiercely opposed to your sentence in your final para, but I suspect others will knock it over even if I leave it alone. I think a slightly more detailed, and just slightly more accurate one would work, and also that we should continue this on the London talk page. How about "an important settlement for around two millenia, London is now one of the world's most important international financial and business centres"? MarkThomas 15:57, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


Yeah, I agree. But maybe just leave out the word "international" and have "an important settlement for around two millenia, London is now one of the world's most important financial and business centres". Also I agree it would be good to continue this discussion on the London talk page. Wjfox2005 16:44, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I really would sooner you not do further edits on the intro until it's been agreed on the discussion page. I am sure this will annoy you, but on something as important as this, it's best to discuss and agree before changing it again. MarkThomas 18:53, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Your recent edit to John Lennon[edit]

Hi. You recently edited this article and appeared to blank content, without an edit summary explaining your decision to do so. This gives your edit the appearance of vandalism, which I'm sure is not the case. Regards, --Dweller 16:33, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Your recent edit to Ruth Kelly[edit]

Hi Wjfox2005,
the reference you added as source for your recent edit in Ruth Kelly requires subscription and is therefore not a good source. Is there no other publicly open source available to reference your edit? Also, in order to avoid the impression of a partisan-based statement, it would be better to add an explaination (or a quote by herself) why Kelly took this decision. -- Túrelio 13:04, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Your edits made to Skyscraper[edit]

Hi

I strongly agree the fact that a building is considered a skyscraper if over 150m. Yes, however, if you could possibly help to cite sources for this article, it would be great, this article (No offence) Has been written by many; whom I think some parts are their own source or a complete made-up nonsense, so therefore, I have tagged this article for having uncited sources. Till today, I am still referencing through books and reliable inernet resources for more sources and rephrases to be done.

If possible, you can link your cited sources for the minimum 150m criterion height of a skyscraper, and perhaps at the end of a paragraph, add a <ref_>_INSERT LINK HERE_<_/ref> (Without any underscores) for a reference source.

I appreciate your help in this article. Write me back if you can...

Thanks!

Fair use rationale for Image:100bishopsgate.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:100bishopsgate.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 11:05, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Re:List of tallest buildings and structures in London[edit]

I only removed one link about Trafalgar Square pictures, which is irrelevant to a list that measures the tallest buildings and structures in London, as Nelson's Column is not on the list. If you disagree with my decision, read WP:EL; links should be useful, tasteful, informative, factual. How is a link to a website offering photographs of a London landmark not included as one of the tallest structures useful or factual to list about the city's tallest strctures? It is a useful link for other articles, just not this one. Cheers, Rai-me 22:31, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

3RR warning on 22nd century[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on 22nd century. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 21:39, 27 October 2008 (UTC)


Image source problem with Image:Swissre_from_bishopsgate.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Swissre_from_bishopsgate.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 01:14, 24 December 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sherool (talk) 01:14, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging for File:Swissre from bishopsgate.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Swissre from bishopsgate.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

It is acceptable to report others' predictions published in reliable sources, but you have restored a large section of predictions which have no attibution and are therefore original research to this article. They must be removed again. I42 (talk) 14:21, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of 22 Marsh Wall[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 22 Marsh Wall. 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/22 Marsh Wall. 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) 01:09, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Volcanoes and global warming[edit]

Hi. I reverted your addition to global warming about CO

from volcanoes. In my view, the article already makes it clear that humans are responsible for the increase in atmospheric CO

. The issue of volcanic sources of CO

is discussed in the sub-article: greenhouse gas#Natural and anthropogenic sources. Enescot (talk) 03:44, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Conflict of interest policy[edit]

Hello, Wjfox2005. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may need to consider our guidance on conflicts of interest.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. [2] [3] [4] --Ronz (talk) 18:29, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Editing of Wiki page for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite[edit]

Hi Wjfox2005.

Thank you for your contributions to the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite wiki page. It was gratifying to see that it had already been created and modified. Unfortunately, the information on it now is based on a previous version of the satellite and needs to be updated. I made a few simple changes last week, a couple of which you changed back. I'd like to be able to update the page so that it reflects the current reality: how can we work together to make this happen?
