Category:Top-importance Chicago articles[edit]

We are going to go through another round of consideration for Category:Top-importance Chicago articles. Last August your votes helped us decide our last round of promotions. Please consider the articles at WT:CHIASSESS and voice your opinion on whether they should be on the ballot near the end of January when we are considering our next round of promotions.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 02:58, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


Updated DYK query On 3 January, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Chicago and South Side Rapid Transit Railroad, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

QR Code external links[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you removed some unnecessary external links in the qrcode page. I agree some of them were superfluos but I think it's very usefull to have links to source code. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:55, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Maybe, although of very limited use to a general audience. Given the amount of spam that article gets I try to keep the number of external links to a minimum using the guidelines at WP:EL. People wanting lots of links will use the search engine or directory of their choice anyway.—Jeremy (talk) 22:20, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

List of Chicago Landmarks[edit]

I am revising List of Chicago Landmarks for new designations since July 2003. You will see many redlinks that need articles if we want to retain WP:FL status. For details of the update that is underway see the talk page. Please help out and create some articles.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 04:46, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

QR Codes[edit]

I see you have protected the page and stated it was receiving vandalism from multiple sources. The alleged vandalism is a link to a very popular news site about 2d bar codes. Shouldn't it have struck you as important enough to investigate if you realized that so many different people were posting this relevant link. Meanwhile, you maintain that the link to another news article is indeed worthy. What is your agenda here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by CChungg (talkcontribs) 19:06, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

CChungg - Please take a look at WP:EL (and also please sign your comments). The repeatedly arising site in question isn't a specific article on the topic in question, but rather a blog able to be given to the whim of future content changes without the moderation of wiki editors. Additionally, since you've thrown the first snide bit here, i have to ask what the agenda is for a person who's only two wiki contributions have been the restoration of repeatedly removed external sites. Quaeler (talk) 22:18, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
My agenda is make current information available to everyone about this exciting technology. By locking the article, you've decided what content is notable and have decided that only a blog entry written by a semi-credible source two years ago is the only outside news source. Also, seeing as and Luna based out of Toronto are the ones bringing this technology to North America, with the backing of Microsoft amongst others, it would seem very relevant to link to their non commercial website which in fact does not sell anything, but is simply an educational resource and provides a free online QR code generator that is even used as an example in this discussion page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CChungg (talkcontribs) —Preceding comment was added at 01:41, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
You clearly have an agenda then, as the only edits you make are in the interest of making links related to this Luna development company. (QR Codes and Microsoft Dynamics) Quaeler (talk) 08:27, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

You ask what my agenda is here... I am helping to write an encyclopedia. On the other hand you appear to be trying to promote a blog--Wikipedia is an encyclopedia not a directory. The other news article can go too, I would never have reverted its removal--I have only ever reverted when it was replaced with a blog link. —Jeremy (talk) 13:57, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

So remove it then and replace it with some relevant references to the information contained within this article. There is a single reference to Denso Wave and nothing more. Where did the rest of this information come from? --CChungg (talk) 19:01, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Kinzie Street railroad bridge[edit]

Congratulations on an interesting article about this important railroad bridge. It looks like it is making it to DYK. I would like to question its claim, though, that it was the longest and heaviest bascule bridge when it opened. See the comments on the article's talk page. Thanks. Truthanado (talk) 00:47, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Your explanation on the article's talk page and on my talk page sounds good to me. Thanks. Truthanado (talk) 23:31, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Ultimate Guitar Archive[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Ultimate Guitar Archive, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 10:59, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Crookes sandbox article[edit]

For some reason (I suspect because of the deleted templates that you were using in your infobox), this work in progress article in your sandbox (User:JeremyA/Sandbox/Crookes) was causing it to show up as WP:CSD candidate. Since there was no tag on the article, it was obviously an error. Anyway, I ended up commenting out the infobox, and now it no longer shows up in CSD. Hope you don't mind, but I didn't want the article accidentally deleted altogether. Jauerbackdude?/dude. 04:31, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Outline Map[edit]

Hi there, I have noticed your inclusion of this Sheffield outline map with UK.svg outline map in the Bramall Lane article and I was wondering whether you could help me to create a similar one for Leeds for use in the Elland Road article. Cheers, Kaboooz LUFC TC 10:31, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. That's the idea, but I think It'd be better with the stadium's location within a map of Leeds with UK. I just didn't know how to get a map of Leeds as you have for Sheffield and, having done that, how to pinpoint the location of the stadium. Kaboooz LUFC TC 19:21, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
I think that's beyond me, but it would be great if you could create one at some stage. You don't need to do it right away though, of course – I'm sure you've got better things to do. Thanks for the offer though, Kaboooz LUFC TC 19:45, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

External Link[edit]

J: I'm writing on behalf of The Jewish Museum. Recently you removed numerous links I had posted from several artist pages. In your comments to me you asked that I review the External Link policy. Having done so, it seems that I need to ask editors to post my institution's recommended links. If I proceed this way, what is the estimated time frame?

Trump International Hotel and Tower (Chicago)[edit]

I thought I would mention to you that since our agreement a long time ago to limit the number of photos in Trump International Hotel and Tower (Chicago), several new templates have been created to accommodate many photos in the text of articles. I have used {{multiple image}} to include several more images than we had previously agreed in the development and construction sections. I just renominated the article at WP:GAC with all the photos.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 23:07, 9 May 2008 (UTC)


A template you created, Template:Ntd, has been marked for deletion as a deprecated and orphaned template. If, after 14 days, there has been no objection, the template will be deleted. If you wish to object to its deletion, please list your objection here and feel free to remove the {{deprecated}} tag from the template. If you feel the deletion is appropriate, no further action is necessary. Thanks for your attention. Bryan Derksen (talk) 04:33, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Derbyshire_outline_map_with_UK.png (&Notts)[edit]

Hi there. I'm just dropping you a quick line to act if you can provide me with the original source for Image:Derbyshire_outline_map_with_UK.png and Image:Nottinghamshire_outline_map_with_UK.png without the heavy black outline, for which you are listed as author, and if possible, the maps for South Yorkshire and as well (although Jhamez84 is listed as uploader for these. I am hoping to create a map of the Sheffield City Region as defined by The Northern Way document, which may be used on both the SC and TNW articles, as well as being used as a base for a map on 0114 dialing code and S postcode area.
