Thanks for uploading Image:Nottingham depot 1900.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too.

If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL.

Jackson[edit]

Someone placed a speedy delete tag on the article . Not being the author, I can and did remove it. It is likely, however, that it will be nominated again if you dont provide sources. There should certainly be some magazine articles at least on his life and work. Remember not to copy from any websites or printed material. If any of what you do have is copied, please rewrite it in your own words, or the article can and will be deleted as a copyvio. Best of luck with it. DGG 08:48, 22 April 2007 (UTC)


The article Sesselbahn Kandersteg-Oeschinen has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. MastCell Talk 16:56, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

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)

File:TrinityMethodistHarrogate.JPG[edit]

Hope you don't mind - I took the liberty of editing the photo you uploaded (File:TrinityMethodistHarrogate.JPG) as the original was a bit dark. I also adjusted the converging verticals. If you don't like what I did, please feel free to revert... Cheers -- Euchiasmus (talk) 07:39, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Copyright[edit]

I was recently looking over some of the nobility articles you created, and I noticed that you seem to have cut-and pasted from [1] when creating the biography of the 6th Duke of Newcastle. I've rewritten it, but I want to make sure you understand that copying and pasting text from online sources to create a biography in this manner is not acceptable except for works in the public domain (and even these should be credited). If you have any other articles that you know you've created in this fashion, I strongly suggest you go back and rewrite them.

Proposed deletion of Mark James Monk[edit]

The article Mark James Monk has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability. No sources. There're and there have been many professional organists playing in cathedrals and it doesn't seem this one has many any particular impact.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Karljoos (talk) 21:56, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries, multiple consecutive edits[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you.

Hello Andrew, and thanks for your many contributions. Another note on editing, if you don't mind: It will also be easier for you and your co-editors to collaborate on articles if, instead of making multiple consecutive edits in rapid succession on an article, you use the "Show preview" button to view your changes incrementally before finally saving the page once you're satisfied with your edits. Thanks in advance for considering this. Eric talk 19:20, 1 March 2010 (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)

Speedy deletion nomination of Gerald Hocken Knight[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Gerald Hocken Knight 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 or group of people, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

The article St Saviours in the Meadows, Nottingham has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Hello. Per the notice you received above, a tag had been placed on St Saviours in the Meadows, Nottingham requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

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)

Middlesbrough[edit]

Hi there. I'm concerned that you seem to be spelling Middlesbrough wrongly in some of your recently tramway-related edits. Usually, with "-brough" it is the one you mean, in Yorkshire, and with "-borough" it's in Kentucky! I do acknowledge that there's always room for this to be wrong, that the company used another spelling etc ... but if so you'd probably need to put a note explaining, which would at least stop people like me trying to change it all the time! Hope this helps, best wishes DBaK (talk) 19:10, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

Hey there. I was working on the clock at Wimborne Minster the other day, and was thinking of creating a separate article for it, when I was pleasantly surprised to find that you had beat me to it. I then saw that you have been busy creating clock articles, but there appear to be a lot of problems with your edits. Besides the numerous factual errors, copy errors, and overall dearth of references; it seems that in some cases you have simply google-translated from foreign wikis, and in others you have clearly violated copyright. For example, your Prior Castell's Clock entry contains this:

  • survived the English Civil War purportedly because it is embellished with a thistle, the symbol of Scotland, and was not used as firewood by the Scottish army.
But this website (which isn't the one you referenced), says:
  • survived the English Civil War, purportedly because it is embellished with a thistle, the symbol of Scotland, and was therefore spared being used as firewood by the Scottish army.
  • My reference to this was from a book - Finding God in a Holy Place. Chris Cook. Continuum International Publishing Group. 2010. I'm not sure why you think this was from a website? Andrewrabbott (talk) 11:43, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
There are others, and I have spent most of the night trying to sort them out. Frankly, for someone with your many years of experience on WP, the quality of some of your recent edits is quite shocking. Most important though, are the instances of copyvio and (deliberate?) mis-attribution of sources, which you must be aware given your years here, is out of order. Please sort it out, because if I see similar instances in the future, I will take the matter further. -- Hillbillyholiday talk 11:21, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok, so I trawled through some of your recent contributions and found a couple more copy-paste jobs. Gdańsk Astronomical Clock doesn't have a reference for this:

  • Article: "Its complex dials show the time and date, phases of the moon, the position of the moon and sun in relation to the zodiac signs, and the calendar of saints. Adam and Eve ring the bell on the hour."
  • Website "Its complex dials show the time and date, phases of the moon, the position of the moon and sun in relation to the zodiac signs, and the calendar of saints. Adam and Eve ring the bell on the hour."

Horologium mirabile Lundense has a different reference given than the one you copied this text from:

  • Article: "The astronomical clock of Lund Cathedral, the Horologium mirabile Lundense, was made around 1424. After having been in storage since 1837, it was restored and put back in place in 1923.[1] When it plays, one can hear In dulci jubilo from the smallest organ in the church, while six wooden figures, representing the three magi and their servants, pass by Mary and Jesus. The clock plays two times a day, at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. every day, except on Sundays when the earliest playing takes place at 1:00 p.m. in order not to interrupt the morning service."
  • Website "The astronomical clock of the cathedral, the Horologium mirabile Lundense, was made around 1424. After having been in storage since 1837, it was restored and put back in place in 1923.

The clock plays two times a day, at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. every day, except on Sundays when the earliest playing takes place at 1:00 p.m. in order not to interrupt the morning service."

I did notice that some of the articles seemed okay, and at first glance appear to have been adequately transliterated. I have to say that I'm rather impressed by the sheer number of new articles you've created of late, and the speed with which you are able to put them together is remarkable. However, I think it would be more helpful if you focused on "quality not quantity" when starting a new article, as identifying and fixing the problems has been quite a chore. -- Hillbillyholiday talk 18:20, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, me again! My apologies if I came over a bit harsh earlier. I've been formatting references at some of the church articles you created, and once again I'm hugely impressed by the sheer number of entries that you've started. I noticed you added a lot of links to the National Pipe Organ Register, you don't happen to play do you? -- Hillbillyholiday talk 07:58, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

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)

I'm enjoying your new Birmingham church articles. It's good to learn new things abut my home city. Thank you.

I made {{National Pipe Organ Register}}, which may ease your workload; see this example of it in use. It will also save problems later, if the register changes its URL structure. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:47, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Cheers. I'll use it in subsequent articles Andrewrabbott (talk) 21:13, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
