Disambiguation link notification for March 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited River Tamar, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Holsworthy and Aqueduct (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Interurban Rail Transport in UK[edit]

About Rail usage statistics by country Are you serious friend ? in 1.6 billions passenger-km you added 1 billion is London Metro urban rail (London Overground Metrorail+London commuter trains), have a look here (page 5: One billion is for London Metro, Half billion for interurban rail usage). One billion of your stats is to be placed here : Lists of rapid transit systems.

Can you really believe UK interurban rail usage is the same as China? with a huge rail network and 1.5 billion population mostly less rich than in UK to purchase a car. Please do not compare Rail Stats in UK to Spain, France and Germany: Spain they used unreasonably European funds to subside a huge High Spead Rail in the spanish mountains and France & Germany they forbided bus transport, they also picked up so much money from EU to fund their european coridors, they are in the center of Euope have much transborder rail traffic and restricted or forbided Easyjet and Ryanair hubs.

You can find all stats here since 2002 : from 2002 up to now rail interurban usage encreased from 295 millions (2002) to 500 millions in 2014 but was has been one billion passengers/year. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rami75013 (talkcontribs) 14:08, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Rail usage[edit]

Thanks for your explanations Argovian, i do agree that stats of other countries like what you said added to netherlands and Belgium are so dificult to believe too: persons in these last countries for instance use too much their car they have excellent free motorways. It seems that is not related to the usage of the rail that is rather the question of whatever if the national rail compagny manages the urban suburb rails or not.

Honorifics in lists of politicians[edit]

Hi Argovian. Since you've edited one or more of List of current members of the British Privy Council, British Government frontbench and Official Opposition frontbench in the last six months, I'd like to invite you to a discussion about the use of honorifics in those lists. The discussion is happening here, and I look forward to a helpful and robust discussion. DBD 20:58, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

The West Country Challenge[edit]

Hi. I was wondering if you'd be interested in participating in Wikipedia:WikiProject England/The West Country Challenge in August. A chance to win £250 as well! If contests aren't your thing we welcome independent contributors too. If interested sign up at participants. Cheers!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:53, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:19, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
