Heugh lighthouse[edit]

Just thought I would drop in and say thanks for the nice article on the Heugh lighthouse. I noticed it mentioned that it was the first gas lit lighthouse, which piqued my interest as I have created an article on the Savudrija Lighthouse, which was first lit by coal gas in 1818 (I have yet to add that to the article though). Looking elsewhere I noticed that Rowlett mentions in the Upstate New York listing that the Barcelona Light used natural gas from 1831. So maybe worth saying that it was the first British lighthouse that used natural gas. (I will watch here if you reply)- Happy Editing...Jokulhlaup (talk) 17:19, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Many thanks - looking again at sources, I see it is more precisely referred to as the 'first lighthouse to be reliably [or sustainably] lit by gas - a claim which might still stand, as several earlier gas-powered lighthouses had problems. Apologies for omitting this crucial word I'll amend the entry to correct the wording, and to make clear that this is may be open to dispute.
Thanks for having another look, your correction seems fine to me, and nicely done...Jokulhlaup (talk) 18:03, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Navy Board, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ordinances (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.

I had been reasonably certain the article on Victualling Commissioners would be a five-line stub, so was impressed to discover a detailed and informative piece. Thanks for your major expansion of this obscure topic. -- Euryalus (talk) 03:48, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

I have undone your cut-and-paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Defence College of Management and Technology a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Royal Military College of Science. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 21:30, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi - I have requested deletion of the redirect etc at Royal Military College of Science so that the move you originally intended can be completed properly. I hope this helps. Dormskirk (talk) 23:05, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

DYK for High and Low Lights of North Shields[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 24 September 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article High and Low Lights of North Shields, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Black Middens were avoided by aligning the Lights of North Shields (pictured)? You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, High and Low Lights of North Shields), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
