Dear Jonny 109

please accept my apologies - I'm still getting used to Wikipedia and have only just got to grips with Talk pages etc. I have seen your changes regarding my additions to the Land Rover Tangi page - specifically the additions of information relating to the Pangolin armoured Land Rover,and the company ovik.

The fact is that - whilst I now understand and accept that adding direct links was the incorrect thing to do - I was simply trying to direct the reader to a more fruitful source of information in respect of Pangolin - i.e. the ovik website. The fact is - there is a great deal of information about pangolin on the ovik site. As does the new site www.pangolin-armour.com - which seems to be a spin-off site from the ovik website.

I want to get the CORRECT information up about Pangolin - having been deeply involved in the programme of design and build of the vehicle. Pangolin is a natural progression from the Tangi Land Rover and as such - I really think it belongs on the Tangi page. To my mind having a separate page would be unnecessary. Unfortunately, there's been some shenaningans going on recently - with alterations taking place on a daily basis.

The simple facts are that ovik did indeed win the contract and supply the vehicles to PSNI (I have a copy of the original contract to verify that). Whenever I see that the page is altered I try to change it back in the interests of getting the correct info up onto the page - but now it seems that whenever I put the correct information up it is deleted and replaced with erroneous information. I am now being accused of spamming!! NOT ME... I value Wikipedia too much and have donated (only moderate sums I'm afraid) to the upkeep fund whenever I can.

I accept that wikipedia is open to amendment by anyone, but it grieves me to see inaccurate info on the site - info which I KNOW, first-hand, to be incorrect. My reason for writing to you is to hopefully register with you as a genuine wikipedia(n).

I will cease the use of links to websites henceforth - and will add footnotes etc as per the guidelines.

Thanks and regards

Dear Landroverfan,

Thank you for message. I do agree with what you are saying and I also believe you are a genuine wikipedia(n). I see currently the Pangolin section has been removed due to the fact that it has been mentioned in the status section but I also believe it is important for it to either have its own section on the Land Rover Tangi page or for it to have its own page. Maybe this mater could be discussed further on the Land River Tangi talk page.

Thanks

Infobox UK Fire and Rescue[edit]

Hello! I wanted to chat with you about the {{Infobox UK Fire and Rescue}}. A quick look at the history of that template shows that you were a major contributor. There is currently an ongoing conversation about merging this template with that of {{Infobox fire department}}. Consensus seems to be leaning in favor of merging and I wanted to chat with you about it. My main question for you is do you feel that {{Infobox fire department}} has the necessary fields or do you feel that it is missing things that should be added IF it is to be used instead of {{Infobox UK Fire and Rescue}}? I am very familiar with the fire service, but as a resident of the US, I have only been focused on departments in the US. My main concern is WP:WORLDVIEW... I KNOW that I have a certain bias towards the US because I am a US resident. So just want to make sure that this template truly is usable world wide. Any feedback you have would be most appreciated. Thanks so much and hope you are having a great day! --Zackmann08 (talk) 18:49, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
