Just saw your comments on Bookcrossing. Good stuff. Oddly enough, your screen-name caught my eye. I've visited Dupont Circle three times in the past week. Took a panorama, which I've put up at http://pics.livejournal.com/skyring/pic/0000p7wg (careful, 3.7 meg download). Skyring 07:06, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Glad you liked the picture. I went there looking for the Australian Embassy to do an Australia Day release and had to cross the park in the middle. At the centre I looked around and realised that I was in the middle of a ten-way intersection. Skyring 08:37, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I'd like to add to the Belmont_TV_Mast article but I'm busy collating for Winter_Hill_TV_Mast, however I noticed your request for images and http://tx.mb21.co.uk may be able to help you out --PopUpPirate 23:55, Mar 1, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, and the kind words. I am and always have been (and I'm over the three years and ten bit!): I have a big collection of Railway Mags and copious notes about railways. I don't come from the area (I live in Kent) but my father was born in Armley so feel I have some claim to being a little bit Yorkshire... I'll incorporate your words into the article, and into future ones: it's a very good point. Regards Peter Shearan 17:04, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Lincolnshire Villages[edit]

I notice you have done pages for some of the Lincolnshire villages eg Theddlethorpe. Im trying to do all of them, i added them all the villages to the Lincolnshire page, im updating the existing pages and then ill work my way through the ones with no current page. I try at least to find something to say for each place, including a link to multimap. My family has lived in this county nearly 1000 years, so im as local as they get, and I know every village and back road.

Ive got an uopdated list of villages, ill update the Lincolnshire page soon

Was you planning on joining me in this endeavour, or were you just passing?

Highest station[edit]

Heya, the highest station in Britain as far as I am aware is Corrour, on the West Highland Line in Scotland, at 1350 feet above sea level. [1] GullibleKit 20:42, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Jamie Hanley[edit]

Back in December 2009, you nominated this article for deletion as non-notable. The result was 'no consensus', but two years later, I still believe he is non-notable by our standards, and have re-nominated it for deletion. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jamie Hanley (2nd nomination). Robofish (talk) 21:17, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

And the article has been re-created and I've re-nominated for deletion: see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jamie Hanley (3rd nomination). Bondegezou (talk) 14:47, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
