Northern Rail[edit]

Can I ask why you removed referenced information regarding capacity of trains? With a lot of cascades expected in the short term future I added that about a month ago so that people could compare capacities between different trains and I've had positive feedback from some people since doing it. With the way you've edited it, it implies the 144s and 158s are all the same which they are not - some are 1 carriage longer than others. To me it makes no sense why you removed that referenced information and left in the non-referenced information regarding which routes trains operate on which route. 85.199.229.158 (talk) 11:56, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Lady of Mann[edit]

Re this edit you made - the intention is good, but it has removed relevant info from the infobox. Ports of registry should all be kept, as should owner and operator info. Also, GT and GRT are not the same, both should appear in the infobox. Do you feel confident enough to fix this so that all relevant info appears in the infobox? Mjroots (talk) 09:28, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

No problem. As the ship has been renamed, an article move may be in order. Mjroots (talk) 10:08, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
For an uncontroversial move, you can be bold and move the article yourself. In this case, WP:RM would probably be a better option. Re the IoMSPCo article, it appears to be just one IP that is the problem. I'll be leaving a message once I've checked that IPs contributions. I don't think it is necessary to protect the article at the moment. Should this become a problem in the future, please request temporary semi-protection at WP:RPP. Mjroots (talk) 10:14, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
I've left the IP a note about WP:MOS and WP:MOSSHIP. I'd rather believe the problem there was a lack of knowledge about these policies than any deliberate attempt to vandalise - beginner's mistakes as it were, which are allowed. Mjroots (talk) 10:26, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
The article on Lady of Mann could really do with some structure - lede, description, history etc. I've reworked the {{Steam Packet Ships}} template to give better links to the redlinked articles. Some of these will need amendment if articles get created due to renamings whilst in IoMSPCo service. If you're feeling adventurous, you could try creating articles on all ships (it can be done, see the {{Seatruck Ships}} template). Mjroots (talk) 11:14, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
There's a fair bit on the net, such as Simplon Postcards, Manxlink and Clydesite. Another useful source of info is Plimsoll ship data for all vessels on Lloyd's Register in the period 1930-45. Further suggestions for sources here. Mjroots (talk) 13:13, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

MS Lady of Mann move[edit]

You moved this page, without any discussion here that I can see.
I’ve moved it back; perhaps you would care to explain why this page needs moving? Xyl 54 (talk) 00:31, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

PS: the “someone” who “keeps saying” the article should be at Lady of Mann is me, I suspect. I think I said it once, in October last year.
And as the suggestion you were given was to take it to WP:RM, maybe you should do that...Xyl 54 (talk) 00:37, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I thought this might happen. The best option now is a WP:RM, and to notify WT:SHIPS so that a number of interested editors may have the chance to express their opinion. I can see the arguments on both sides, although I generally lean towards using current name for active ships. Mjroots (talk) 11:07, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Isle of Man Steam Packet Company[edit]

I see you've also had a go at correcting the false info in that article. One question - whats the source for the scrapping of "Monas Queen" this year? Reason I ask is that according to this page on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/12487973@N02/3319115108/ she was broken up in 2008. I realise Flickr is hardly a valid primary source, just wondered what the truth was! Cheers Jon Olddemdike (talk) 17:52, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

User:L1v3rp00l[edit]

I've given this editor warnings about the three revert rule and ownership of articles and said to raise issues at the article talk pages in future. Should the warnings not be heeded, I would suggest raising the issue at WP:ANI, and ask that User:L1v3rp00l be placed on a restriction preventing him from reverting your edits.

Ship articles[edit]

Just a note to say that when creating ship articles you should add the ship the the relevant list of ship launches (and shipwrecks if applicable) - this helps to prevent an article being orphaned. Also, it is useful to create redirects from the non-prefixed title (e.g. Seatruck Power) . Finally, if you move a ship article, please remember to check the article for redirects (using the "what links here" feature in the toolbox) and retarget any existing redirects, otherwise you have a double redirect. These little chores help keep things running smoothly. Mjroots (talk) 03:20, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited MV Derbyshire, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kawasaki (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.

Comment on your userpage[edit]

"Places I have visited on the Isle of Man" - dude, seriously, if you live here then that is a hilariously silly section, it's not as if it's very big. I've been to five of the places on your list today just through work, shopping and marshalling the GP*!

Although if that is the entire point then bravo on your sillinessFace-grin.svg Egg Centric 21:12, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

*And also colby, ballabeg, ballasalla, cooli, santon and the mountain road. Have you considered adding these reknowned worldwide locations to your list? Face-tongue.svg

You're welcome[edit]

Thanks for the message. You're very welcome. I was a bit baffled, to be honest. But they are doing some other stuff I don't really get either, and sooner or later they'll probably sort themselves out or get sorted out by an admin. The former, I hope. Cheers DBaK (talk) 19:12, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
