Arden[edit]

Hi - I noticed that you added the Arden was built in Balsall Heath, Coventry. There is a Balsall Heath in Birmingham, is there another one in Coventry? Aynuk N. Ayli 08:48, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Its a bit of a mystery. You are correct, there is no Balsall Heath in Coventry unless it's very obscure but three references I have checked all give the address of the Arden Motor Co as Balsall Heath, Coventry. This probably means they are copying the same mistake. I suspect that the address is actually Balsall Common which would be a bit closer to the Arden area (if I can call it that). More research needed! Malcolma 22:03, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Balsallheath.JPG. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid.

Links in quotes in John Patrick Kenneally[edit]

You recently reinstated some links in a quotation in the article John Patrick Kenneally. If you read the discussion about this in Talk:John Patrick Kenneally#Links in quotation as well as review the editing history of the article, you will see that this matter has been subject of some debate just a sort while ago, and it was confirmed by authoritative editors dealing with MoS issues (see links in the discussion on the talk page), that such links in a quotation should not occur. I've correspondingly removed them and ask that you do not reinstate them. Thanks.  DDStretch  (talk) 10:04, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I see that your a graduate from the University of Birmingham. It used to be amongst the top 5 in Britain, nowdays it's a dump where the lecturers have to tell their cronies which questions are coming up in the exams just so they can get a decent pass rate. Aynuk N. Ayli (talk) 09:11, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, when I went there (which was well before the current slump in standards in all UK universities), it was reckoned to be quite good. I am older than you seem to think. Can I ask you why you thought it necessary to make such a comment, seeing as it is completely unrelated to the matter which was being discussed, or were you perhaps hoping to make a dig at my educational background?.  DDStretch  (talk) 09:35, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Because of the pedantic way you apply wiki-rules. Aynuk N. Ayli (talk) 12:26, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, your insults will gain you no ground here, except perhaps to count against you if you repeat them or indulge in them elewhere. In case you wish to complain about the rules, I direct you to the WP:MOS#Quotations and to Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Archive 101#Links in quotations where clear guidance was given. I suggest you accept that, rather than throw out insults when what you think should be done goes against policy and is reversed as has ben done here in the future. You can count this as a formal warning about reacting in an inflammatory way as you have done.  DDStretch  (talk) 13:31, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Throwing insults? I most humbly apologize for the offence that I have caused by implying that you're a recent graduate from the University of Birmingham. Aynuk N. Ayli (talk) 08:38, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Do not distort by logic-chopping. You know full well what you were doing: you were making a general statement about the plunging standards at Birmingham University recently, and then explicitly noting that that I was a graduate, the implication being that I was a recent graduate. I think if this represents your way of working on wikipedia, you need to reassess your contributions.  DDStretch  (talk) 10:57, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Be fair - on the 11 July 2008 you included this edit:
In the above quotation, "Lieutenant-Commander Esmonde" was Eugene Esmonde "Lance Corporal Kenneally" was John Patrick Keneally
on John Patrick Keneally's own page! As Unknown Unknowns put it "No need to state the obvious." Aynuk N. Ayli (talk) 14:55, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Distortion again. You will see that the inclusion had two functions: (a) to allow links to be made, because they are not allowed in the quotation, and (b) to clarify the form of the names as used in the quotes were linked to slightly different forms of the names, which are apparent to English speakers, but which might not be so apparent to people wose primary spoken language is not English. This is meant to be an international encyclopaedia, and from my experience of contributing to paper encyclopaedias, one has to sometimes includes things one thinks of as obvious, because they may not be onvious to other people for particular reasons.  DDStretch  (talk) 15:09, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
You might want to add this text to the article then:
In the above quotation "Lance Corporal Kenneally" was John Patrick Keneally
