A page you started (Beier (Beirette)) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Beier (Beirette), Johnragla!

Wikipedia editor Surfer43 just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

You may want to change the opening sentences to an introduction of the subject of the article instead of Woldeman Beier (and maybe make an article about him). Also try to find more references for the other information. Thanks!

To reply, leave a comment on Surfer43's talk page.

Bexhill West branch line[edit]

Thanks for your addition. If there is anything else that can be added from that source, please feel free to add it. I've formatted the reference using {{cite journal}}, and named the ref for ease of reuse. Mjroots (talk) 09:15, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Chapel inclined plane[edit]

Would you please check my edit at Chapel inclined plane. I changed my mind and altered it again: diff. The unit cwt is not accepted by {{convert}}—it has to be either Lcwt (long, imperial) or Scwt (short, US). Also, the original text with "between 22.4 and 28 tons (tonnes)" is confusing, but doing the calculation implies long tons were intended (a long ton is LT in convert, 1 LT = 2240 lb, whereas 1 tonnne = 1000 kg). There are some others in the article that I did not touch. Johnuniq (talk) 12:15, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Copied from my talk. Johnuniq (talk) 23:18, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't check it had converted. I'd forgotten about l and s. Your edit seems correct, though I suggest it'd be better to convert to kg, rather than lb, ie 16 and 20 long hundredweight (810 and 1,020 kg). Do you agree and, if so, do you want to do the edit?
Good idea. Would you please do it, and perhaps convert other values in the article. Johnuniq (talk) 23:18, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Uploading Geograph images[edit]

Hi, when you upload Geograph images, please don't alter the attribution. Geograph images are (virtually) all licensed CC BY-SA 2.0, the terms of which require us to use exactly the same license. When you uploaded c:File:Abingdon railway station in 1970.jpg, you used CC BY-SA 4.0 which is not the same. The easiest way of making sure that you comply is to use the templates and other markup that are offered by Geograph. On the main image page, follow the link "Find out How to reuse this image", and look for the heading "Wikipedia Template for image page." That has a text box, you should copy the whole of its contents to the new image's description page. This markup includes the information box with the relevant data (title, links and licence), geotags the image, as well as the specific Geograph Template. All that it lacks are categories; with those, please try to be specific - don't use vague categories like [[Category:Railway]]. I fixed up the attribution like this and the categories like this. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:59, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the advice, which I've not managed to find in either Geograph, or Wikipedia. If it's not already in a similar form on Wikipedia, maybe you could add it. In this case it was my photo, so I simply uploaded it to both Wikimedia and Geograph. Is there a list of categories somewhere?Johnragla (talk) 20:14, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
There's this list which is vast and not very helpful. What I usually do is find another image of the same subject, and copy categories, amending where necessary. The basic ones that are needed should cover: (i) what it is (a railway station); (ii) where it is (Abingdon); (iii) when the photo was taken (1970). Many overlap categories exist, so from those criteria I obtained Disused railway stations in Oxfordshire; Abingdon, Oxfordshire; and 1970 in Oxfordshire. For Geograph images, there are supplementary cats covering year (1970 Geograph images) and county (Geograph images in Oxfordshire). For some examples, have a look at User:Redrose64#Images (Geograph); click an image, see which categories it's in. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:46, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
