LA World Airports[edit]

The reason it got listed in there was because I used Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser to make the lists. I didn't go back though and check each airport. Thanks for catching it. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 00:16, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I guessed that you must have used an automatic method to make the list (and what a helpful list it is!). I just thought I'd make sure it was crossed out to avoid any confusion. --Fozi999 00:25, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Airbus A380 landing in Heathrow[edit]

Hi there - sorry about this, I'm really an idiot. I had read the headline and just assumed the article was on a different subject without even scrolling further down. Thanks for cleaning up the mess I made :) — QuantumEleven 07:30, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Don't worry, when I originally saw the article I nearly made the same mistake. --Fozi999 12:32, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Towers Times Link[edit]

Im no towers times fan, but its pathetic to go out of your way to make sure the link is removed from the wikipedia article, and your website is at the top.

This is probably considered link spamming by wikipedia, but im no expert.

Maybe you have a valied reason why it shouldnt be included though?

Trust me, I have no such agenda. I read this and I honestly had no idea I'd ever removed the link. I checked my edits and it seems I'm right. I presume you're pathetic accusations refer to this edit. Have another look, the link I removed is a duplicate as Towers Times is already 3rd in the list. --Fozi999 10:51, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Image:CityCampusEast.JPG[edit]

Hi. It's ages since I've been at that side of the city -- is that where the Warner cinema used to be? The JPS talk to me 14:56, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, that's the site. I took that photo on the spare of the moment. I might try to get some shots from better angles next time I'm passing. It might make it's location a bit clearer. --Fozi999 17:57, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Airport articles[edit]

Sure it's at http://www.alansim.com/airport_infobox.xls Usual thing, just right click to save. Hope it works for you. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 04:14, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Map sources[edit]

I was just wondering if it's a good idea to be putting in _region:DE (and others)? The thing is it leads to this which is in German rather than this which is in English and we are an English Wikipeda. However I do see that Flughafen London-Heathrow in the German Wikipedia uses _region:GB which of course links to the English so in the end I guess it doesn't really matter. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 07:05, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

I noticed that but only after I'd made the changes. I was reading the Parameters section of the Geographical Coordinates Wikiproject and it seemed like a sensible idea. In fact for the UK the result it is much better than the previous format. Personally the German doesn't make it a problem for me to understand the page but if you think it’s necessary I could revert them back to their original format. However, I suppose the real solution would be to have pages in different language for each region but I'm not sure if that wiki has them. --Fozi999 10:37, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
At first I thought it was probably not a good idea but after I saw that the German Wikipedia had them linked to the English I figured it doesn't really matter. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 11:21, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Additions to coaster infobox require article updating, need help[edit]

I've made several large additions to the {{Infobox roller coaster}} template, which will require updating of EVERY article using it. These additions are automatic unit conversion for the statistics and automatic categorization. I have also provided full documentation of every parameter on the template page, which I strongly encourage you to read. Every article will need the following changes:

  • These parameters must be delinked: location, section, manufacturer, and type. They will be automatically linked, and will (except for section) be used for automatic categorization.
  • The type parameter must be Steel or Wood.
  • The secondary type (Inverted, Floorless, Duelling etc.) should be moved to the type2 parameter. If a second secondary type is necessary, it goes in type3. In either case, don't link them, it will be done automatically.
  • height, drop, length, speed, and restriction must have all non-numeric characters removed. height, drop, and length must be expressed in feet (using decimals instead of inches if necessary), speed must be expressed in miles per hour, and restriction must be expressed in inches. All of these parameters will automatically be converted to metric and displayed in both forms.

Also, the rcdb_number parameter should be added to every coaster article that doesn't have it yet.

If the article is about a widely-cloned coaster such as Batman: The Ride where the template covers multiple installations of the same coaster, the redesigned template will not be appropriate. For these articles, simply change the template to "Infobox roller coaster simplified". This is the old version, without all the automation.

I've already updated over 50 articles myself, but I can't do this all day and I'll need your help to get it done quickly. The list of pages using the template can be found here. I'm sending this message to all listed participants of Wikipedia:WikiProject Roller Coasters. Dusso Janladde 07:41, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Brain Teaser AfD[edit]

To all WikiProject Roller coasters participants: Brain Teaser, a kiddie coaster at Six Flags Darien Lake is up for deletion via WP:AFD. This isn't my article, but if it's deleted, it sets the prescident for many small coasters to be deleted, such as Mild Thing, which runs counter to the Coaster Wikiproject and also will make a lot of park templates look dumb since they can't include all coasters.

Image:DSC00014-2.JPG listed for deletion[edit]

Orphaned fair use image (Image:SantaAnaVol.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:SantaAnaVol.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. —Angr 20:58, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]

Trophy.png

As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 00:25, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Canyon Blaster (Six Flags Magic Mountain)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Canyon Blaster (Six Flags Magic Mountain) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This roller coaster is a mass-produced roller coaster. There are two other roller coasters that have the exact same layout/characteristics of this roller coaster. A search on Google and Yahoo returned no reliable secondary sources regarding the roller coaster that could be included to support the notability of the topic.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
