I notice the City of Calgary's traffic station CIRI wasn't listed so I added it. It's a redlink right now but I wonder if it would qualify for an article since it is only receivable within Calgary? 23skidoo 20:36, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
- I would bemore concerned about whether this article could ever grow beyond a stub. What really needs to be said about it other than "traffic information operated by the City of Calgary"? Personaly, I would just remove the red link. Everything that can be said you have already added to this list. Resolute 20:51, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
- Not all articles have to be lengthy and detailed. And there is more to say about CIRI, for example why it was created -- obviously in response to the fact Calgary is going through construction hell for the next 5 years. Plus it is also interesting that the woman heard reading out all the traffic information isn't a woman at all, but rather a computerized voice. I do not believe stub-length articles that stay that long are any problem at all -- as long as they have sufficient information. However the current criteria for broadcasters as I understand it is they must be either in a major metropolitan area (and Calgary @ 1 million counts, no?) or be receivable beyond their home base (which CIRI to my knowledge is not). 23skidoo 21:48, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
Merging List of newspapers in Calgary here
At what point would it be appropriate to merge the newspaper list with the larger list of media outlets in Calgary? Can I go ahead and do this now as it was proposed a few weeks ago? Mark 01:28, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
- No-one seems to mind, so please do. --Qyd 02:00, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
What about the proliferation of free daily newspapers in Calgary in 2007? None are listed here. I refer to 24 Hours, Metro and there's one more I believe. 184.108.40.206 19:08, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
- Since no one else has added them I've done so, along with, for good measure, the three college newspapers that are circulated throughout the city, and I tossed in the widely circlated Kerby News for good measure since it's as widely available as BeatRoute. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:55, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Deletion of POV
The description of the two dailies was unacceptable as it had too much POV and tried to make one paper look better than the other. Also, I have no idea why some people try to come up with new, awkward words for defined terminology. A tabloid is a tabloid. Calling the Sun a "compact format" (per an earlier edit I just changed) makes it sound like a newspaper in miniature. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:55, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
