http://www.siding-quote.com was removed as an external link when it is clearly a more informative, useful site than is http://www.siding-contractor.net. Just wondering why websites that are less useful are posted, and websites that are more useful, better designed, and updated more frequently to actually assist others are kept from the users. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:53, 26 January 2007 (UTC).
- Any external link (EL) that is essentially an advertisement for a certain company should generally be removed. If your EL was removed while your competitor's remained, that was probably because (a) no one else was paying enough attention or consistently checking the ELs for commercial/advertising nature, or (b) your competitor was sneaking around here deleting your EL and/or re-inserting their own EL when anyone else deleted it. The upshot is: no ads on Wikipedia. Feel free to remove theirs if they put it back! As I write this, the entire EL section is gone, probably for lack of any educational, non-commercial site to link to. — Lumbercutter 21:27, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
Is there any information on the history of various types of siding, or at least dates when they first appeared?
- I assume this  is a joke, but the question is valid.
Siding is an important aspect of building construction since it is visible and thus affects buildings appearance and it's important purpose to keep the structure dry. There is a history to each type which can sometimes help tell the age of a building, although siding is something which is rarely original on ancient buildings since it is designed to be replaceable. I do not have time or I would add more info, but at least I will point out that slate siding is absent and some wooden buildings were covered with plaster siding.
