Fulton Center[edit]

Excuse me, could you add a link to a source regarding this paragraph? Thanks in advance. Vcohen (talk) 11:31, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

There is a plethora of information on the subject of the Fulton Center. Here is a link to the official site map from the MTA, indicating the presence of a "R/E" connector. Note it says connector, suggesting a free transfer. Older material from both official and unofficial sources point to a physical transfer, but would not be completed before the opening of the flagship building at Fulton Street. As for the passageway goes, there are video renderings from official sources (the MTA), the developers and media that there is a set of barriers on the Broadway side of the passageway, leading to the passageway itself, therefore indicating it is not free. This information is entirely a summary of previous statements on the Wiki article, which have links to various sources. Hmanck (talk) 11:52, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, I need sources for two particular statements: 1) "there will be no free transfer between the Fulton Street and Cortlandt Street stations" and 2) "the BMT Cortlandt Street station will have a free transfer to the World Trade Center station". As of now, all articles related to the Fulton Center show the future list of served trains as 2345ACEJNRZ, as if the planned transfer were connecting all of them. I know it's wrong, I want to fix these articles, but I need a reliable source for that. Vcohen (talk) 12:37, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Footnote 16 of the article indicates that the passageway is outside of fare control. There's no transfer planned between the stations on either side of the passageway. Hmanck (talk) 14:20, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, I'll try to rely on it. Vcohen (talk) 14:26, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

The MTA in its feis statement, in chapter 3, concluded that because church street and Broadway are busy traffic arterials, it would have been more wise to construct said passageway as an unpaid to maximize pedestrian flow. it would allow a continent stream of access from the wtc complex to the Fulton street complex.

Thanks. Vcohen (talk) 17:01, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
I tried to figure out this question by asking a well-informed user. His only error is about the 1, isn't it? Vcohen (talk) 07:24, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

The WTC Transportation Hub and the Fulton Center are related but entirely different contracts and projects. As said by the user, the WTC Transportation Hub primarily deals with transportation pre-existing at the World Trade Center, essentially a major upgrade from pre-2001 conditions. With that I mean, the WTC Hub will have the 1, E and R lines. It is a MOSTLY-PA project. It is intended primarily to bring an easy-finding transit hub, of which the primary focus is the PATH. In pre-2001 times, commuters would have to enter through WTC buildings, through an underground concourse/mall to reach that. With the destruction of said buildings and infrastructure, it was proposed to give the PATH station more modern amenities, and therefore the idea of the WTC Hub was hatched. As it is a MOSTLY-PA project, there are some contracts during the construction of the hub that would impact NYCS service, especially the 1 line, which bisects it. It is intended that there will be the integration of the 1, E, R lines into the hub. There are no proposals to give free transfers to the 1 from the E, R or the Fulton Street Station lines.

Because the 1 lies under Greenwich Street, a little to the west of Church Street (where the R runs), it is not directly connected to the Fulton Center complex. It lies outside of the MTA contracts as part of the Fulton Center, and therefore is NOT included. Hmanck (talk) 12:13, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

OK, thanks a lot. Vcohen (talk) 12:18, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Mass Rapid Transit System (Chennai)[edit]

In re your request to protect a section, there is no such thing - it's all or nothing in protection. This apppears to be a content dispute rather than vandalism, thus no real good to reason to protect the article. You can always make another request at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection Skier Dude (talk) 01:23, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited West Street pedestrian bridges, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Winter Garden (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.

Tamil Scripts[edit]

May I ask you how you are familiar with Tamil scripts ([1]) of Chennai Metro, given that you claimed to be a non-local throughout the discussions at Chennai MRTS and especially, in your argument ([2]) in the discussion regarding tamil names, where you made statements that seemed to convey an opinion from a person who doesn't know tamil. --Anbu121 (talk me) 23:57, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the Tamil for the Chennai Metro edit, I simply went over to the Tamil version of the page and copied the title. I assume that it was Tamil based on the shape of the characters used for the Chennai MRTS system. Knowing some Indian geography and the demographics, I understand one of the lingua franca used in the Chennai area is Tamil. But yes, I do not know Tamil at all. H-Man (talk) 00:01, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, sorry if my enquiry seems to be in a suspective tone. Actually, there was consensus made on WikiProject India Notice board not to have local scripts in the lead section of an article. --Anbu121 (talk me) 00:15, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Alpha Phi Omega updates[edit]

Thank you for the work updating the chapter lists, the chronological still need work updating the changes over the last couple of years including chapters going inactive, I think.
