2009 Plan[edit]

I had originally included the 2009 Plan, but after some research, it seems that this 7-line network is no longer the proposal. The 9-line system is what newspapers cite, as well as the SNCB themselves. I propose the re-deletion of this section. ConorBrady.ie (caint) 08:40, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Ah, really? I didn't realise that. We should also remove it from the article on the French wikipedia in that case. Do you have references somewhere which accurately describe the current status? This image from this page, suggests that in fact there will be eight lines. --David Edgar (talk) 11:57, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
After doing a lot of searching both in French and in English, I haven't found anything definitive that says that the 2009 Plan was dropped. Having said that though, the only place I have found mention it was indeed on the French Wiki page.
As far as the number of lines is concerned, yes that map states that there will be eight. Counting the different coloured lines on the map, however, indicates nine. ConorBrady.ie (caint) 18:56, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
So this site, particularly the final report it links, seems interesting. I presume that this is what has been reported as the 2009 plan.
I haven't had a chance to read through it all, but I note that it's focusing on the longer term, with its maps looking at 2015 onwards. Whereas maps like this one on the SNCB site are described as "Horizon 2012". So does this mean they could actually both be valid? Or is the 2009 report merely a study, and has never been officially accepted as a future strategy?
So perhaps it's most sensible to keep the main route description as that currently described by SNCB/NMBS, and add a paragraph or two referencing the 2009 plan / study / report as a future proposal, and identifying its key points? --David Edgar (talk) 13:08, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
I rewrote the section, somewhat, to basically cover these points. More could still be added. --David Edgar (talk) 14:19, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Looks good, David. ConorBrady.ie (caint) 16:23, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 22:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
