Geocoding of UK roads[edit]

Hello! Thanks for joining the geocoding effort.

The idea is to add specific coordinates for each article that identify that particular feature, not generic coordinates for the area it lies within. For example, for a road, a point that lies somewhere near the middle of that road, but is not at a junction with any other major road, would suffice. See, for example, this edit to the A118 road article.

Unfortunately, you seem to have added the same generic "United Kingdom" location to a large number of articles about roads in the United Kingdom. A generic point not only fails to identify the feature correctly, confusing readers, but also creates the false impression that a true location has been found for that article, inhibiting other people from finding true coordinates. Accordingly, I've reverted all those edits.

Please don't be put off by these comments! I'd welcome any efforts you can make to add accurate, specific, coordinates, but please don't add any more generic coordinates to articles. If you'd like to join in the geocoding community, please see WP:COORD and its talk page. -- The Anome (talk) 06:19, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hello. When removing content, it is very helpful to other edits to specify what you are adding or removing as it really helps vandal fighters know that you are indeed helping the project. If you have any questions, you may ask them on my talk page. Thank you, Tommy2010 18:31, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
