Line 1[edit]

Is there any particular reason Line 1 merits its own article rather than just a section of this one? Quantumobserver (talk) 21:01, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Guangzhou metro station count[edit]

If this is to be changed from 80 can a source be found to back it up? Thanks. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 17:16, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I believe 88 comes from double counting interchange stations. No source can ever back that up. Kxx (talk | contribs) 19:55, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah that makes sense, but I'd expect there to be some sort of media source giving the 88 station count. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 20:02, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Here is a system map published by GZMTR Corp. I don't count 88 stations on it and I don't think there is anything more official than this. Kxx (talk | contribs) 20:10, 15 April 2010 (UTC)


Some time ago I requested the WP:Graphics Lab to vectorize GZMTR's ram-shaped logo, which came back with text additionally included. Later the text was removed. I spent some time observing use of the logo in various stations. Almost always does text accompany the "ram"—it appears in significant places like station exits as well as less important places like temporary fences. It seems to me that the with-text logo is the way GZMTR identifies itself. Therefore I propose that removal of text from the logo be reverted. Kxx (talk | contribs) 09:48, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Sounds fine. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 17:07, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Guangzhu line unlikely part of Guangzhou Metro[edit]

Guangzhu line is basically an intercity commuter service. It is more like regular trains than metro. I was unable to dig out who will run it through Google News though; yet nor did I find any words that Guangzhou Metro will run it. Probably its only connection with Guangzhou Metro is convenient transfer at Guangzhou South Railway Station. If no sources can be found, it should be removed from the article to avoid confusion.

Sounds fine by me. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 11:41, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Extensions to Lines 2, 4 and 8 to open soon[edit]

Line 2 will pause operation Sep 22–24 and resume on Sep 25, when it will follow the new route. Line 8 will also officially open on Sep 25, but the new three stations to the west of Changgang Station will not open until dispute surrounding placement of a cooling station for the newly constructed segment is settled (the incident once escalated in Aug to a point that riot police were deployed to quench the conflict). Extension to Line 4 will open on the same day. Kxx (talk | contribs) 20:32, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Phases of Guangzhou Metro lines[edit]

The phase numbers in the Time table section are quite arbitrary and some are simply wrong or misused. In case future edits run into the same problem, it is worth clarifying the assignment of phase numbers.

Sections of a line opening at different times do not necessarily belong to different phases. A prime example would be Guang-Fo Line, whose whole section from Kuiqi Lu to Lijiao constitutes its phase 1. The Kuiqi Lu–Xilang is known as the 首通段, or literally first-operational section, while the Xilang–Lijiao section is known as the 后通段, or literally later-operational section. The real phase 2 of Guang-Fo Line is a southwards extension from Kuiqi Lu to Xiaocong, which in some reports is also expected to open in 2012. Conversely, different phases of a line do not necessarily open at different times. For instance, phases 1 and 2 of Line 6 are expected to open at the same time.

Some lines are not divided into phases, such as Line 1. Some lines have extensions but not phases. For example, the Guangzhou East Railway Station–Airport South section is the north extension of Line 3. Some lines even mix phases and extensions: Line 6 has two phases (Xunfenggang–Changban and Changban–Xiangxue) and an east extension (Xiangxue–Yonghe); Line 8 itself has no phases, but its north extension from Fenghuang Xincun to Baiyun Lake is divided into two phases at Culture Park.

In sum, there are no general patterns in assigning phase numbers to sections of the lines. The only way to get everything right is to stick to the sources and handle each line on a case-by-case basis. Kxx (talk | contribs) 10:11, 8 October 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 necessarily 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:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 10:34, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

 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 20:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
