List of firehouses[edit]

@John from Idegon: It would have been nice if you'd read or contributed to the talk discussion cited in the es. I'll reproduce it here, from User talk:Magnolia677:

I found the table of Fire engine companies / locations to be useful and am sad to see it go. jhawkinson (talk) 01:23, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

@Jhawkinson: Thanks for writing and its clear that someone put some work into creating that list. In fact, I should have hidden it instead. I was doing a bit of cleanup and the list of stations seemed a bit excessive, per WP:NOT. Listing fire stations and apparatus is ok on articles about a fire department, per Wikipedia:WikiProject Fire Service, but I've usually seen these deleted from city articles. Please add a message to the article's talk page about it. Or, add what I deleted back to the article with a source. I won't delete, but will add a talk page message about it. Thank you.

My position remains the same -- I found it useful and am sad to see it go, and restored it after consultation with the editor who removed it. I'm not sure what value there is in hiding it while retaining it, though. It just seems a path on the way to remove it that doesn't benefit anyone. I'm also not aware of a convenient place elsewhere that the table is available -- the source site has it spread over multiple pages. jhawkinson (talk) 03:02, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
I hid the table in case an editor wished to create an article about the Cambridge Fire Department. I don't feel the table is useful on the Cambridge city article. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 13:11, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
I did read it. He cited a very good reason to remove it. You had one arguement, WP:ILIKEIT, which most everyone knows is not a valid argument at all. I expanded on his argument and removed it. It appears he concurs. Thanks for the ping. John from Idegon (talk) 15:12, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
