List of Organ Scholars at British Universities and Colleges[edit]

Hi there; I see you went through and made amendments to a large number of college articles for the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, including an interwiki link to an article you've created here. However, you've incorrectly formatted these edits. If you want a 'see also' reference you should use the {{seealso}} template. Can you go through and fix them (since you made those edits, that's only fair right?)? There are also concerns I have regarding the notability of examples you have provided on the List of Organ Scholars at British Universities and Colleges article: Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information and the examples you include must be notable.

Church break-out articles' talk pages and WikiProjects[edit]

Hi,

I notice you've recently created a load of break-out articles for churches on the Isle of Wight (eg: Holy Cross Church, Binstead from Binstead). Appreciate the work put in to clarify the articles. However, it would have been useful if you'd had a look at the talk pages - most of the places will have had a {{WikiProject Wight}} template at the top, which could do with being on the church's page as well. If you're doing this for churches in other areas of the country, this could affect other WikiProjects as well. Hope that's helpful. :)

Thanks! --Peeky44 (talk) 19:21, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:36, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

London Pneumatic Despatch Company[edit]

Interesting article -- a definite for DYK!

Could you have another look at the lede paragraph of the article? The first sentence introduces a company, the second and third sentences discuss the railway that the company built, but do not say as such -- the subject of the two sentences is still the LPD Company.

In the quote I changed 'value' to 'valve', since the context suggests that is the correct word. (Could you double-check the original source, please?) My handwriting can make these two words look identical, so I suspect the same transcription error has occurred here too.

Incidentally, if you look at the article history you'll see that an anon editor has been making numerous changes -- was that you, not logged-in?

L&Y Railway ships[edit]

Hi, re this edit, I created the table with ship article names per WP:MOSSHIP. I see that you've created a number of articles on these ships, which is good. I note the use of a year disambiguator in your titles. As it is quite likely that a number of ships carries the same name, then the use of a year of launch disambiguator is in compliance with MOSSHIP. However, titles should really be at SS Foo or TSS Foo.

I suggest the following moves are made -

  1. Duke of Albany (1907) to TSS Duke of Albany or TSS Duke of Albany (1907) if more than one ship with that name, with TSS Duke of Albany created as a ship index page.
  2. Duke of Argyll (1909) to TSS Duke of Argyll or TSS Duke of Argyll (1909) as above.
  3. Duke of Clarence (1892) to TSS Duke of Clarence or TSS Duke of Clarence (1892) as above.
  4. Duke of Connaught (1902) to TSS Duke of Connaught or TSS Duke of Connaught (1902) as above.
  5. Duke of Cornwall (1898) to TSS Duke of Cornwall or TSS Duke of Cornwall (1898) as above.
  6. Duke of Cumberland (1909) to TSS Duke of Cumberland or TSS Duke of Cumberland (1909) as above.
  7. Duke of Lancaster (1895) to TSS Duke of Lancaster or TSS Duke of Lancaster (1895) as above.
  8. Duke of York (1894) to TSS Duke of York or TSS Duke of York (1894) as above.

Let me know whether you want to make the moves, or you'd like me to do the honours. Mjroots (talk) 16:11, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Looks like Duke of Argyll needs a shipindex page creating anyway, as does Duke of Lancaster. Mjroots (talk) 16:13, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
I've made the moves as you can see. PS is the preferred prefix for paddle steamers, rather that P.S. (or worse, P/S). Any questions about ship articles please ask at WT:SHIPS. Please remember that the internet can be a great source of info which can be used to supplement book sources when writing ship articles. Mjroots (talk) 13:39, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Just noticed the edits to the ship article titles. I think some of the ship names may occur on later vessels, so I'll move them if it becomes necessary. (Andrewrabbott (talk) 13:46, 31 December 2010 (UTC))
My personal feeling is that all ships should be dabbed by year of launch, but this is not something that is supported. If it becomes apparant that an article needs to be moved, the previous title can then be turned into a shipindex page, as I did with TSS Duke of Lancaster. Should two ships have the same name and year of launch, I dab by builder, (year). Mjroots (talk) 15:19, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Hello Andrew. Many of these ships are not "TSS" as marine steam turbines were not used in passenger vessels until the twentieth century. (TS King Edward was the first.) So the vessels which are prefixed with "TSS" but are not turbine-powered need to be moved again. I have done that with SS Duke of Lancaster (1895). Regards, Kablammo (talk) 21:36, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sir Gervase Clifton, 4th Baronet[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sir Gervase Clifton, 4th Baronet has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

genealogical stub which establishes no notability for the subject

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Theodore Stephen Tearne[edit]

Hi. I wonder whether you could please help me, regarding the meaning of the letters FSSc after the above man's name? Your article contains the only mention of FSSc after a name that I can find. I'm researching a late 19th century priest who was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and he also had those same letters after his name (besides FRGS). However, although there are plenty of mentions of the "Science Society, London" on the internet, there is no source (that I can find) to say exactly what it was. My 19th century priest was not a member of the Royal Society (their historical membership list is online) and they use the letters FRS anyway. Any ideas? --Storye book (talk) 11:13, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

NHLE[edit]

Hi Andrew. I'm enjoying your work on listed churches. Just one suggestion: you tend to cite the British Listed Buildings website but (although useful) this is an unofficial record, uses obsolete reference numbers, and is not automatically updated as the listings change. The official list, which contains mostly the same information but, unlike BLB, is maintained and uses a current index, is the National Heritage List England (NHLE), which has its own template for referencing (see Template:NHLE). When I can be bothered, I cite both. Just a thought – keep up the good work. Dave.Dunford (talk) 14:53, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I'll use the template in future articles. Andrewrabbott (talk) 09:44, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Presented to Laurence Charles Liddell on his retirement by the parishioners of Tardebigge and Bentley in grateful appreciation of his 19 years service as organist at St. Bartholomew's Church

Can you shed any light on him? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:29, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

York's churches[edit]

Hi Andrew, I've just noticed and been impressed by your recent edits to articles on York's churches. I'm based at York Museums Trust as part of the Yorkshire GLAMwiki Network Project and may be able to help you find more resources on these churches. There's also St Mary's, Castlegate which currently lacks an article and is now a de-consecrated contemporary art space used by York Museums Trust (website here). Perhaps it should get an article? There's a little on its history here and here. What do you think? Cheers, PatHadley (talk) 14:30, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Deanery of Christianity (Lincoln)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Deanery of Christianity (Lincoln) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.
