Hello?[edit]

Hey Wongm, you haven't been replying to some past messages. I guess your busy with other things.

I recently created a Forums account on Vicsig site. It's really good because you can shar information with other people and vice versa and by that you things that you didn't know. I've made posts already.

My Vicsig Forum Username is Mr. V/Line. Try sending me a private message.

It would be good to get back in touch with you.

Hi again, I might see you around the forums a bit more, I haven't had that much time for Wikipedia over the past few months. Wongm (talk) 22:14, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

file:Vicrailmap-albury.png[edit]

Hello! There is a question at German map lab if it wouldn't be better to change the colour of New South Wales in this map. Some might think Albury is a coast town cos NSW has got the same colour as the ocean. Would you like to change it? I don't want to do it myself as long as the creator of a map is still active at WP. If you don't want to do it I will upload a changed file with a different name so your version remains untouched. Thanks. --NNW (talk) 14:26, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, it makes sense. I will change it to a generic grey instead I think, I have a whole series of maps, this one is just a small crop of the bigger one. Wongm (talk) 22:12, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
I have fixed it up and reuploaded under the same name. Wongm (talk)

Speedy deletion of Sunshine Biscuits (Australia)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Sunshine Biscuits (Australia) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Regarding Vlocity Article[edit]

The change I made was correct on the article. Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VLocity and go down to passenger experience. The photograph clearly shows 3 two-car sets, but the caption is wrong. All I did was to change that. Please look at the changes made before judging.

AfD nomination of Wall ball[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 Wall ball.

Image on Bendigo line[edit]

Mate, you've got two errors on the map of the Bendigo line.

  1. You've spelt Riddell's Creek incorrectly (note the correct spelling)
  2. You've got Riddell's Creek and Clarkefield the wrong way around.

Could you please explain...[edit]

Could you please explain why you redirected Ship_lifts_in_China?

Could you please direct me to where you raised this redirection for discussion?

Thanks Geo Swan (talk) 01:35, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

I didn't being it up, as I didn't see it as controversial, I was just Wikipedia:Be bold and did it. List of boat lifts already existed, there isn't many "Thing X in country Y" type lists in existance, and the page in question was very short and will always be (unlike say "Cities in country Z").

Yarra Trams & KDR Melbourne Articles[edit]

Hi Wongm,

I have noticed that you have previously made quite a lot of edits on the Yarra Trams article, as a gunzel myself I have also noticed that you are on a couple of the railway forums such as Railpage AustraliaTM and that your opinion and knowledge on Public Transport issues are highly respected. I just wanted to bring to your attention that it has been suggested that the KDR Melbourne article and Yarra Trams article should be merged, it will appreciated if you express your opinion/suggestions on the matter here.

Thanks, Sheepunderscore (talk) 08:07, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

I will post a comment over at the talk page for the article. Wongm (talk) 08:41, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Light Timber Construction (Schools)[edit]

Thanks for the substantial references and additions you've added to Light Timber Construction (Schools). There seemed to be a complete lack of info on LTC architecture, so I felt it was time to draft an article. I intend accessing more material from the Public Records Office in coming weeks, to enrich the article further.

Thanks for your support!

Astor Theatre[edit]

Hi, a couple of things about Astor Theatre. First, if there is no primary topic, the disambig should be at Astor Theatre instead of Astor Theatre (disambiguation). But that's not a big deal. The second is, per WP:FIXDABLINKS, we could use your help to point the links going to Astor Theatre to the correct article. Navigation popups with the popupFixDabs flag set to true is very helpful. --JaGatalk 16:22, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

VR box & louvre vans article[edit]

Hi Wongm,

any chance you could look over the chapters of the Victorian Railways Box and Louvre Vans article I'm working on, and 'de-gunzel' it as well as fix referencing and add infoboxes and photos?

So far, done the refrigeration, hearse, explosive and narrow gauge chapters. Will probably work on the baggage/mail vans next, then attack the

Non-free rationale for File:Yallourn-technical-school.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Yallourn-technical-school.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:37, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
