Coat of Arms of Ireland[edit]

The large coat of arms is still be commented on. Maybe you can lend a word or two? Djegan 14:21, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Category:Roads in Ireland[edit]

Just thought you should know, recently a user has taken it upon themselves to move all of the RoI N based roads out of the "Category:Roads in the Republic of Ireland", and into the "Category:Roads in Ireland", therefore making a mockery of the category hierarchy system. In addition they have added "Category:Roads in Ireland" to all the articles in the "National Primary Roads" template to said category as well, making even more category confusion in the categories and subcategories. Unfortunately the user that has made the alterations has publically stated that they refuse to be bound by the Wikipedia conventions and use the name "Republic of Ireland" at any point and doesn't recognise the term, which is a shame as other than this one point the user makes some very good edits.

Hi Zoney...guess that would be me Ben is referring to above! (I think we have made peace since then). What brought me here was to try and find out HOW you produce those wonderful "Route Boxes" like THIS. I am doing a series on regional roads and would love to be able to create equivqlent (in black and white) of the N-boxes. How do you do it? (Sarah777 22:42, 1 April 2007 (UTC))

Hello again Zoney...I just have to ask...is THIS the sign that gave you your Wikiname? I was looking for a place in west Mullingar last week when I came upon this on the ring-road! Double-take - I knew it was familiar! Regards (Sarah777 00:49, 8 April 2007 (UTC))

WP on Iraq War WMD[edit]

Hi Zoney. I noticed you were in at the start of this article on the lead up to the war, and I thought you might be able to help me. What I'm looking for is a record of the pre-March '03 Wikipedia discussions about reports of the governments' WMD claims. I'd just like to see how well NPOV was being applied by editors before the lack of WMDs became clear. So many articles have sprung up following the war that it's difficult to locate where the original discussions might have taken place. I'd appreciate it if you pointed me in the right direction. Thanks.--Shtove 21:16, 2 March 2007 (UTC)


Tinsley Viaduct[edit]

Hi there Zoney. I see you have edited the above article, I'd like to invite you to a poll on the inclusion or not of the coordinates box, here. L.J.Skinnerwot|I did 02:11, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

'Regional road' article[edit]

Thanks Zoney. The "no article yet" category was because someone had put a list of roads with no article related to them on the page - I didn't want to delete them. The other categories were simply to make it easier for me to navigate - please feel free to change it. The 'scenic' class is subjective, of course, but does that mean we can't have one? Classes I'd like to retain are Short Roads (less than 25 km - because some of them are very short with no habitations en route and Urban Roads; some run entirely through built-up areas, certainly around Dublin. Please Wikify the page as you see fit - any help much appreciated! (Sarah777 21:49, 22 April 2007 (UTC))

Me again. Why not write an article on the R526 in Wiki? A matter of minutes given the article on your website! Regards (Sarah777 00:09, 26 May 2007 (UTC))

Discussion you might be interested in[edit]

Based on your having voted on whether the article Carrantuohill should be moved to Carrauntoohil back in November 2005, I figured you might be interested in joining the discussion on Talk: Galteemore on whether the article Galteemore should be moved to Galtymore Mountain.

R293[edit]

Article on the r293 road is posted up now, I had wanted to get the page away from redirecting to the 'regional road' page, hence the alteration I had done previously. Owenmoresider 22:28, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Geography of Ireland[edit]

You may have noticed that Geography of Ireland is on FAR and mainly needs inline citations and some statistics checking. I see that you did some work on this article, so maybe you can help it being demoted from FA. Cheers ww2censor (talk) 04:18, 22 January 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:1926 Irish road signs.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:1926 Irish road signs.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 18:49, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Euro/US Dollar[edit]

Sorry about that. I had done a cursory check of several different currency combinations to see how the US Dollar and Euro had generally moved, but somehow neglected to check GBP/EUR, one of the most important combinations. Still, considering both of those articles have only been updated with a single sentence each referencing the drop/rise, I question whether it really warrants being on ITN. - Mark 11:30, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of abbreviations in use in 1911[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article List of abbreviations in use in 1911, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Fram (talk) 13:51, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Image:Ireland_rail_network.png[edit]

Zoney, do you have the original file for this picture? I'd like to edit it for colour and that can't be done right now because it's just an antialiased jpg. Thanks! -- Evertype· 09:40, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Structure of National Primary Route articles[edit]

Zoney, I would appreciate any contribution that – as someone with an interest, I believe, in Irish transport matters – you might like to make to the discussion I've recently attempted to get underway at Talk:M1 motorway (Republic of Ireland)#Structure of National Primary Route articles. TIA. -- Picapica (talk) 19:18, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of List of abbreviations in use in 1911[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated List of abbreviations in use in 1911, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of abbreviations in use in 1911. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. ThemFromSpace 08:18, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Current affairs[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Current affairs 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 web content, 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 web content. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), 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 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.

Proposed deletion of Abbreviations listed in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Abbreviations listed in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

not of obvious use either here or on Wiktionary

While all 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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward: not at work) - talk 16:45, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Abbreviations listed in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Abbreviations listed in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Abbreviations listed in the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward: not at work) - talk 12:57, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

File source problem with File:EU blank no rivers territories256.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:EU blank no rivers territories256.png. 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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.
