Domenic Marte[edit]

Hello Derek Andrews. The article for Domenic Marte was previously sourced before this user inexplicably removed them and hasn't made any contributions to Wikipedia since then. I have reverted the article back to the way it was before that editor removed them. Erick (talk) 18:15, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Sorry, I should have checked the history more carefully.Derek Andrews (talk) 18:30, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gas Stokers' Strike, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Spectator (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Bruce Rosenbaum[edit]

Hi Derek, I've updated the page to add citations, combine paragraphs, and create a more neutral tone. Any other recommendations would be appreciated. SteampunkProducer (talk) 02:26, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

That looks better. Apart from the citation we need for his education and early employment -see WP:BLP, I think it quite acceptable. I have added the article to a couple of WikiProjects (see Talk:Bruce_Rosenbaum) which might generate some more input so keep an eye on it.Derek Andrews (talk) 03:01, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Tatamagouche photo[edit]

Hi! I resized the excellent shot you added for the Tatamagouche Creamery Square because I thought the panoramic photo was just too big to be centered. If you have any questions or comments please visit my talk page. Regards,   Aloha27  talk  12:35, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Lakes[edit]

Did you not see the message on my talk page? Don't prod, take them to AFD if you don't want them.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:17, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Go through the Nova Scotia lakes. Look in google books. If you think they can't be expanded add them to a list and once done I'll db author them all. How does that sound? Please don't go through and prod them.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:11, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

OK that sounds like a plan. Thanks. Derek Andrews (talk) 12:14, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Co-ordinates for SS Mont-Blanc[edit]

Good idea to put a final location for the wreck of SS Mont-Blanc. However I cam curious on how you came up with the location co-ordinates? On the maps I tried, those co-ordinates plots out on land, right in the middle of the Richmond railway yards. Mont-Blanc blew up in the harbour at Pier 6 at the foot of Richmond Street. (The book Ground Zero by Howell and Ruffman plots the position pretty precisely.)Dan Conlin (talk) 23:46, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@Dan Conlin:Dan, I probably rounded up so as not to imply undue precision and didn't check backwards to see where it landed. I have now added two more decimal places to the coordinates. Feel free to make further adjustments if necessary. Derek Andrews (talk) 00:13, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the adjustment Derek. Pretty much plots out right where she blew at Pier 6.Dan Conlin (talk) 22:54, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:ADRA(UK)logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:ADRA(UK)logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Contests[edit]

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:15, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Hertford Union Canal Locks

Sorry to drag you back in time so far, but do you happen to have the reference for the names you assigned to the Hertford Union Locks. I'm assuming it's Edwards, INLAND WATERWAYS OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND, but it would be great to know precisely. Thank you for your time!

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. 05:45, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
