I think Stub and Low are fairly obvious ratings. Cricketgirl 19:48, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

As of now I think this is decidedly above C-Class. I've bumped it up to a "B" for WP:OX, though it's way better than many of the B-Class articles there. Casper Gutman (talkcontributions) 13:32, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
I'll be nominating it for GA status soon; The Rambling Man has offered to copy-edit first. BencherliteTalk 20:41, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

The barge[edit]

Richmond Bridge.JPG

The barge at Richmond is no longer decorated in the boat club colours, but has received a natty new blue-and-white coat of paint; see this image (directly underneath the bus; a lot clearer if you zoom in). – iridescent 23:05, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Shame! Thanks for this. BencherliteTalk 07:24, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

White-balance picture[edit]

Could someone update File:Jesus College rowing jersey 1840s.jpg with the white-balanced version at the commons?Smallman12q (talk) 23:42, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Video footage[edit]

Bumps race Oxford 1999

I have uploaded (to Wikimedia Commons) some video footage of Jesus bumping Hertford from Torpids 1999. I think it should bump down (excuse the pun) the photo of the women's first VIII from 1993. Their picture could go on the left-hand side, at the beginning of the paragaph about their successes. I'm a wikipedia newbie so I thought I'd check here before I went ahead and butchered the excellent JCBC article. Dl40482 (talk) 16:24, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm sure User:Bencherlite would be interested in this and keen to help you place it in the most appropriate fashion into this featured article. Have a word with him, he doesn't normally bite...! The Rambling Man (talk) 16:42, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, both of you. When festive family duties have subsided and I'm back to work avoiding work by editing Wikipedia, I'll have a proper look at this - my laptop is playing up at the moment! BencherliteTalk 08:17, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
