Speedy deletion of Wacker Construction Equipment AG[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Wacker Construction Equipment AG 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 notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance 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.

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), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Lincolnite (talk) 01:44, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Sheffield Stuctures[edit]

The template should only go in articles related to buildings in Sheffield and not the main page. There is also a {{football in Sheffield}}, {{Parks and Woodlands in Sheffield}}, {{Waterways in Sheffield}}, {{Sheffield stations}} and {{districts of Sheffield}} templates that would also have to go in the main article if we were to start adding templates relating to specific subjects. This would create an overly cluttered footer (even with collapsing). josh (talk) 22:42, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

One possiblity is to use {{Template group}} as below. I'm still not sure about the usefulness as anyone looking into the subjects would be looking at their related articles rather than the main Sheffield page but if other people consider them useful then I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Steam fairs[edit]

I see you have an interest in steam fairs. I saw this morning that there was no List of steam fairs so created a very incomplete list, and am hoping that interested parties will enhance it substantially and place a link in relevant articles (and create redlinked articles, too!).

Manitowoc cranes color scheme[edit]

I notice that you keep adding in The Manitowoc Company page that Manitowoc cranes are usually red with an orange circle and a white "Manitowoc" through it. This has not been the Manitowoc logo for quite some time. While the crawlers and tower cranes (in the US) are red, all the other cranes have a different paint scheme and different brand names and logos. The Manitowoc "meatball" as it is referred to, has gone through a few transformations since the orange circle and was found only on crawler cranes from years ago. Kkoeppen (talk) 22:51, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Replied on users talk page. (summary:Not adding in just reverted an unexplained/cited deletion that also removed references from article) - BulldozerD11 (talk) 02:14, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Derbyshire Building Society[edit]

It's a shame on Wikipedia when people go round adding random "fact" tags, when the fact they are querying - and which i didn't personally add - is so easily verifiable. You three seconds would be better spent referring to The Derbyshire's website, and adding a reference thereto, than adding spurious "fact" tags to the article.

MarkyMarkD (talk) 19:33, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Redlinks[edit]

I agree. Tiny stubs are just annoying as you see a link ... follow it ... and then find it tells you nothing. Nothing wrong with redlinks but those ones had been there for some time. Thx for your efforts. I do try to keep the assessment lists in check. Cheers Victuallers (talk) 00:18, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Lack of Broadband service[edit]

Due to failure of BT/Tiscali to currently provide a working broadband connection and voice line simultaneously i'm currenty unable to operated on Wikipedia. (Must have worn the line out with data volume).

Normal service will resume once service restored and watchlist backlog cleared (Currently 2 weeks), as Wikipedia is impossible by dialup connection 1mb data up, 12 mb down and 30 minutes to edit 2 pages.

Hopefully back before new year, But will wish you all a Merry Christmas now in case they fail to fix it before then. - BulldozerD11 (talk) 00:03, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi again nice to have you back in action. Keith D (talk) 14:04, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Nice work mate!

I just noticed a couple of really trivial little fixes but this is looking really nice now. Thanks.

Lincolnshire[edit]

Thank you for the message, it’s much appreciated. If we can help one another on projects, it makes for a better Wikipedia. Lincolnshire is my core area, along with people, places, military etc, that are associated with the county, though I do dabble in the book and history projects and articles. I read a fair bit.

The project importance levels, are more as I see it for working on, and so you may see them different to the other projects, for example a place under the England project may be low, but for Lincolnshire project it may be mid to high, because it is important to us. A lot of work is still needed, but if we all chip away at it, we’ll get there in time.

Please always let me know your thoughts on these issues, and also if you ever need help on an article connected to the county. --BSTemple (talk) 16:10, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah Lincolnshire is kinda one of those places you just drive through. I went to Lincoln a couple of years ago it is gorgeous, like why did nobody tell me this was here? Always the way, when things are on your doorstep you don't bother to go see them. 17:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, for Engineering firms, I certainly can think of Lincoln, as it's famous for aircraft and tanks, though much looks to be going into decline now. The comment above is true though, Lincolnshire is beautiful. Did you know by the way, that the council are going to shut the tourist office near the Cathedral?
I agree with the importance (priority) parameter, this is how in general, I see it. Cities/Major Towns "Top", Important towns "High", other towns "Mid", and Villages mostly "Low", with exceptions. Each has to be looked at on its own merits.
Important is also Lincolnshire people, businesses, history etc. I have also found Keith D to be very helpful in the Lincolnshire articles and has dealt with Vandalism on many occasions. I live in Lincolnshire, so can also see what is right and wrong in many of the articles, which helps. I know what you mean about the linked comments page, and will start to use these, these do seem to open up new pages and I think will be useful, if other Editors know to use them or even know they are there.--BSTemple (talk) 18:41, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, knowing they are there is the hardest bit, even with a good search sometimes I can't find anything. WP:Overlink and [[WP::Underlink]](same article) also give some advice. One of the nice things about the collaborative nature of Wikipedia is others can come alog after and add links-- I tend to leave a template like '[citation needed]' when I can't find it while editing.

hi mate you can't stop me writeing that i wen't there for 3 years and its a crap school with a headteacher who don't gaive a damn 84.68.85.213 (talk) 19:10, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately whether true or not personal opinion statements of the nature you and (others ?) keep adding fails wikipedia's criteria for inclusion in the encyclopaedia. The blogs sited as references may accept material of that nature but it fails to meet WP:verifiability as was previously noted on the article talk page. You are quite free to add material to wikipedia which is of value and meets the criteria for inclusion, and is suitably backed up by reference if controversial. Otherwise editors will continue to remove material which is not supported by suitable media reports. (as other editors removed it before me). You and the other IPs accounts and User accounts which keep adding the same material are free to discus it on the talk page with other editors and Admins to reach an acceptable amendment to the article. - BulldozerD11 (talk) 19:45, 31 March 2009 (UTC) ( this note also posted on IP user talk page).

Cub Cadet links[edit]

You consider those links for the Cub Cadet spam? I just thought of them as offical links. ----DanTD (talk) 18:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I see your point. I added two of them back as references. I'm considering add the one back. I was getting kind of worried that all official links might be tagged as spam. ----DanTD (talk) 23:31, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Lincolnshire or not?[edit]

Have a look at Talk:Gillian Merron and at the "Humberside and Lincolnshire" section. Is not Grimsby in Lincolnshire? Go to Grimsby and they say they are from Lincolnshire. Your opinion would be helpful. --BSTemple (talk) 17:31, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

re: Komatsu 930[edit]

"Hi Ch Th Jo - you gave an edit summary to the Komatsu 930E article that the 960E section was moved to the new article on the Komatsu 960E-1 but the new article dose not appear to contain the info or make reference back to superseding the 960E model ? And yet you redirected Komatsu 960E to the new article which does not appear make clear the distinction/relation ship between the two models or have i missed it someware ?"

Hi. Thanks for the questions.

My intent was to move all 960E information off of the 930E page because the 960E is a separate model and therefore deserving of its own article. Based on that logic, I created the new article "Komatsu 960E-1" and changed "Komatsu 960E" redirect to the new article. If you disagree, just let me know why and I'll re-consider.

Supporting my point of view: Komatsu has separate web pages for the 960, a separate product brochure for the 960 and releases separate press releases for the 930 and 960. Although they 930 and 960 are certainly related in many ways, Komatsu does not suggest or imply that the 960 is part of the 930 model line. If you see it differently, please let me know what you think.

Maybe you would like the 930E article to say something like "Until the May 27, 2008 introduction of the 960E-1, the 930E was the largest haul truck in Komatsu's lineup etc...."? Is that what you have in mind? I hadn't thought of that until I started thinking about your feedback, and at this point I think it would be good for the 930E article to say something like that. What do you think?

I have not been able to verify if the 960E-1 is a successor to the 960E or if the 960E-1 the 1st generation of the 960E model line. More research is needed. Please share what you know.

I'm going to make some changes to the 930E article based on your initial feedback. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the above. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ch Th Jo (talkcontribs) 03:13, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Edit: More research indicates that the 960E-1 is the first generation. In press releases, Komatsu uses "960E-1 (960E)" when referring to the truck. Employees of a tar sand mine in Canada where the 960 did pre-production testing referred to it as a "960E-1" as early as June, 2007, almost a year prior to the 960's public introduction. Although 960E is not wrong, 960E-1 is the most correct. Ch Th Jo (talk) 04:32, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
