Proposed deletion of Pennsylvania Route 760[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Pennsylvania Route 760 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unsourced article. There's no source that backs up the existance of this state highway, or any state highway under this designation. To keep this article without a source would be perpetuate a rumor. This article does not meet WP:V, WP:RS, WP:NPOV and WP:NOR.

While all 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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Imzadi1979 (talk) 20:35, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

P.S. The burden of evidence lies with you as the editor that added the information, in this case the whole article. I'm challenging it all. If deleted, the article can be recreated at a later date, if you have the sources to back it up. Imzadi1979 (talk) 20:41, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
P.P.S. You can't remove an AFD tag from an article because you disagree with it. The AFD tag can ONLY be removed at the conclusion of the 7-day AFD process. The AFD tag has been restored. If you disagree, you must comment at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pennsylvania Route 760. Imzadi1979 (talk) 23:50, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Join the WP:USRDCUP 2010![edit]

We're going to go ahead and try this again! The contest will begin April 1. It is a contest to encourage editors to improve teh quality of WP:USRD articles and participate in USRD. Precautions will be taken to make sure that people do not "game the system" and bring article quality down. Please sign up ASAP! Announcements regarding the contest will be made at WP:USRDCUP, Twitter, and/or IRC. --Rschen7754 06:51, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Recent template edits[edit]

I noticed you changed a lot of the shield templates for DE and NJ state routes. A while back, we decided to use the Elongated circle set for DE and Circle sign set for NJ instead of the state-specific sets in order to have less shields to manage. If you have an issue with this, you can discuss it at WT:USRD. Dough4872 01:33, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

USRD stub drive[edit]

I would like to take the opportunity to inform you of the Stub Removal Drive, a current project being undertaken by WikiProject U.S. Roads. We are attempting to reduce the number of stubs (short, underdeveloped articles like American Samoa Highway 005) within our project scope by 3000 before this December. Please help us with our goal by expanding such articles when possible, rather than creating new ones. (If you need to create a new article, you can help by expanding it beyond the stub level.) If you would like more information, it's available at WP:USRD#Goals. Thank you. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 04:37, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Station logos[edit]

Hello, I did want to tell you thank you for your help in uploading current station logos to articles. However, I do need to advise two things;

  • Logos should be uploaded in the PNG format whenever possible, and even better, with transparency around the logo. This makes it easy to scale down images for thumbnail and infobox sizes. When you upload them in JPG, it cannot scale well in the infobox, and up-close details are compromised by the JPG scaling.
  • To meet WP:FAIRUSE, logos should be limited to 400 pixels in size.

An easy program to scale and covert to meet these issues is Irfanview or Paint.NET, which I utilize when I upload images. Hopefully this helps you out with uploading logos to Wikipedia. Thank you. Nate (chatter) 04:39, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:WMAR logo 2012.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:WMAR logo 2012.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:58, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Owned-and-operated station, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page ABC (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:23, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
