Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:24, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

R211[edit]

Please provide an actual link to a source for the statement, "In the MTA's 20 Year Capital Assesment it mentioned the possibility that the R211 will feature open gangways, which will allow passengers to seamlessly walk throughout the train." on the R211 (New York City Subway car) article. Simply saying where it is found is technically not enough. Thank you. Mysteryman557 (talk) 00:54, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited R9 (New York City Subway car), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pressed Steel (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Hillside vs. Woodhull Park/Rockaway Junction stations[edit]

Evidently, Rockaway Junction (LIRR station) was two blocks east of Hillside (LIRR station), if you look at some of the evidence. Some of the references also show Hillside as being listed as far back as 1909, which you've already mentioned. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 05:05, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Happy Holidays[edit]

Happy holidays and happy new year to my Editing Wikipedia "WikiProject New York City Public Transportation", editing coleuge(I have trouble speeling this word, it means two people who work at the same place.). From, very friendly, Doorknob747 00:56, 17 December 2014 (UTC) here is a gift of something rarely seen: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_interior_of_a_busy,_R160B_R_train.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by Doorknob747 (talkcontribs) 23:25, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Template:Jerome Avenue Stations, etc.[edit]

Hi. While I appreciate your edits to create these templates, I don't really think it is necessary. All the stations are linked from IRT Jerome Avenue Line, so we really don't need navboxes for every single station. It creates more workload for the Wikipedia servers. Maybe we can create a template for all New York City Subway stations, and have an option to display only one or two lines instead, like this: {{NYCS stations|Jerome=yes}} to display Jerome Avenue stations, etc.

Please also don't remove the category. The category is for internal purposes, and groups the stations by NYCS division, opening date, location, etc.

Thanks. Epicgenius (talk) 22:03, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't mind at all. I have no problem with making templates for everything New York City Subway-related. I think he should go ahead and continue to do so. I think they're great. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 23:32, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Kind of unrelated, but {{NYCS stations navbox}} now exists. Epic Genius (talk) 01:55, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Regarding Your Comment[edit]

I agree with the 57 Street (Q) reroute editing, and realize that was a mistake. But there was no need to delete my Broad Street information and the SAS 116 and 106 and 125 Street information. The original IRT Second Ave line had demolished stations that are on wiki, so why can't 125, 116 and 106 be there as well? Broad Street also needed information from the old (M) and (R), so why remove that as we'll? I don't mean to sound mean, but you just deleted everything I made. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AahdTahar (talkcontribs) 04:43, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Well, then if you are doing the Broad St editing you will need to do that for every subway wikipedia page, which you are not doing. In addition, the 125, 116, and 106 are only proposed while the abandoned station exists. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 13:29, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

And this is the exact reason why nobody can learn anything on the subway, of you want me to do that of every single station, then fine, I'll do it, but please don't delete it if you only see it on one page, I will continue on doing the rest. And about the SAS, did you not see that I clearly expressed the word "under planning"? And there is already a lot of proof of those stations existing, plus I included the fact of the failed SAS tunnels, and that's all I need to make the article according to Wikipedia guidelines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.232.165.43 (talk) 15:41, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

May I edit the 6 Train Page[edit]

Since you know a lot on the system, may I please update the 6 train page with the fleet swap article? Thank you. AahdTahar (talk) 21:52, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me, but the subway service pages are for the service's routing, not for what cars operated on the service. It would take a lot of work, but this would need to be written on the subway car pages, but this is already written. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 00:49, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

A train article[edit]

I'm asking for your help and support, because the guy just won't stop. The page really has to be protected. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 00:34, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Unexplained blanking.[edit]

I am here to tell u about a unexplained blanking that you have done on the columbus circle subway stop. Please comment before blanking, not doing this repeatedly may lead to a need to call a admin, to report vandalism.Doorknob747 (talk) 22:57, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

That is one incident with no evidence. It is badly written, and there are many minor incidents that happen in subway stations every day, and those don't belong on wikipedia pages unless they are major incidents, and this is clearly not major as it isn't mentioned anywhere, I am sorry if I didn't explain it. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 16:59, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Humboldt Street (LIRR station)[edit]

Hello, Kew Gardens 613,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Humboldt Street (LIRR station) should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Humboldt Street (LIRR station) .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Appable (talk) 14:45, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

I see that you are fixing references with this tool; good job. However, please be careful and watch your edits for any mistakes, or you may make errors like this. Thanks, Epic Genius (talk) 00:52, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

The LIRR Today[edit]

I removed them because the website leads to a Google Login page. The link is considered to be dead, because when I sign in to Google, it says, This blog is open to invited readers only

It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation. This link, thus, leads to a dead end and has no info. Epic Genius (talk) 16:27, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I was invited, but I have two separate email accounts, one in which I was invited and one in which I wasn't. For some reason I still get in when I am using the one I wasn't invited from, which made me lead to believe that the author of the website opened it up to more than just people invited. Have you tried the link? Even when I am not logged in to an email it still works, with the link. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 16:33, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I restarted my computer and I tried it with another account, and it didn't work. Something weird was happening with my computer. Sorry about that.Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 16:43, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I was not given any invitation. However, I often commented on the website, so I should have gotten invited. Epic Genius (talk) 17:25, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I asked him on subchat, his username is lirr42, he is also on nyctf. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 17:42, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

For some weird reason, I can't access NYCTF. Error message there, too. Also, I'm not a member of SubChat. Epic Genius (talk) 18:15, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean by an error message on NYCTF? You can easily become a member of subchat. However, you are more likely to get access via NYCTF. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 19:55, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I had an account, but when I try to access NYCTF, it now displays an error message, saying "SORRY, BUT THE PAGE YOU REQUESTED WAS NOT FOUND. It seems that the page you were trying to reach doesn't exist anymore, never existed, or may it has just moved. Use the links in the navigation bar to get out of this page." My proxy is blocked. However, I'll take up your suggestion and register for SubChat. Epic Genius (talk) 01:30, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Photo requests in Queens?[edit]

Hi! Do you take photos for Wikipedia in Queens? If so, I have some ideas at Commons:Picture_requests/Requests/United_States#Queens. Are you interested in taking any of these?

98.113.182.220[edit]

Keep both him and the A train article on your watchlist, just in case he continues reverting the Broad Channel image. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 23:50, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Hey Kew Gardens, I suggest that while you should keep the A train article in good shape, you should probably not edit war over the image, either. This seems to be a content dispute, so maybe you should discuss it on the talk page of the article. Epic Genius (talk) 17:34, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
@Epicgenius: I hated how I got blocked for editing warring, harrasssment, and personal attacks, and also how I got called out for socking, but yet, that IP address that keeps on edit warring with me on the A train article never got blocked for editing warring and socking. This is totally frustrating and I will not put up with this anymore! Either the staff does something to get rid of him or I will do something to get rid of him myself, seriously and strictly speaking. I've already explain why I reverted the dude and yet he just wants to be annoying as hell! This will stop! JoesphBarbaro (talk) 11:28, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
@JoesphBarbaro: You can report him at WP:AN3 if he keeps edit warring, though. If you already tried to discuss with the IP user, yet the user made 4 reverts on the page in a day, he can be blocked. Epic Genius (talk) 15:52, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Staten Island Tunnel[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens, I've nominated the tunnel article for inclusion on the Main Page, if you're interested. Epic Genius (talk) 23:37, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

I am interested. Thanks! Thanks for reorganizing the page. Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 23:45, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

The revert on the 4 train article[edit]

Union Tpke aka Kew Gardens 613, I reverted you because of the reasons that I've already explain to Philroc. How does it make sense to have a map template for any of the New York City Subway articles when we already have a full list of stations as they are? The map templates belong to the New York City Subway line articles, not the New York City Subway service articles. The 4 is a service, not a line. We don't need to go into any detail about the changes on the lines themselves, because they don't have an impact on any of the services that run on the aforementioned lines. Do you understand or do I need to make myself more clearer? JoesphBarbaro (talk) 21:57, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Just 2 questions about NYCTF and that's it[edit]

Just want to ask 2 things about NYCTF and that's it:

1. How many more people upvoted that Fresh Pond nigga's post at the R32 M train thread? That snide comment of his?

2. What's currently happening at the R32 M thread? Everything became okay or are they (you youself included) still mad at me for pissing on the campfire? JoesphBarbaro (talk) 22:36, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

I haven't been mad at you at all for anything you have done. Other people are mad because they get really irritated at your comments. I upvote both you and Fresh Pond, because both of you have a valid reason to be mad. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 14:47, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Did Fresh Pond said anything else to me afterwards? I haven't been able to log onto NYCTF due to ongoing connection problems, but I'll manage the issue on my own. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 14:53, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Fresh Pond said this: "And you mean to tell me this doesn't come off as being an a-hole?

You could've easily ignored the entire thread from the jump... " --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 22:19, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

As soon as I get my connection problems solved, I'll return to the forums and start posting occasionally from then on. I might also consider in attacking that Fresh Pond nigga for being a prettyboy/Mr. Popular Pants too. I'll see you around. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 22:58, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Union Tpke/Kew Gardens 613, how do I register for SubChat? I tried to make an account, but I kept on failing everytime. JoesphBarbaro (talk) 21:45, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Staten Island RR[edit]

Hey Kew Gardens, I noticed you've been doing good work on this article. I'd like to know if you think the history section should be split into a new article. I'm planning to split it soon because the main article is really big. Epic Genius (talk) 21:49, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Staten Island Railway[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Staten Island Railway you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Epicgenius -- Epicgenius (talk) 15:20, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Staten Island Railway[edit]

The article Staten Island Railway you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Staten Island Railway for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Epic Genius (talk) 16:42, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much for helping! I appreciate it. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 19:22, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Also, what would it take to have the article become A class? --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 19:27, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

@Kew Gardens 613: According to this, For WikiProjects without a formal A-Class review process, the proposal to promote to A-Class should be made on the article's talk page. To be granted, the proposal should be supported by two uninvolved editors, with no significant opposes. The review should also be noted on the project's discussion page. So open up a discussion at Talk:Staten Island Railway and then ask for consensus. You may also want to notify WP:NYCPT.
(Also, in case you're wondering, it may need a little more work to promote to FA-class. By "little" I mean a little more than a little.) Epic Genius (talk) 19:54, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Staten Island Railway[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens, have you given thought to my suggestions at the reassessment page? I'm looking for more concision in the prose, with some thought given to making choices about which are the more important facts about the history to present. Because the article is so long it would probably take a lot of time to improve it all, and the DYK people are getting antsy about the nomination staying open there.

My suggestion is that if you want to keep GA now I think it would be better to split off most of the History section into its own article and then focus on a shorter History section here, covering the most important aspects of its history. Otherwise, I think it would be better to close the GA assessment for now so that you can take your time improving the prose. As I said, I think the Guild of Copy Editors would be helpful here. Let me know what you want to do. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 19:45, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

I made a separate page, but I need help fining out what is most important. Thanks, and sorry for the delay.
--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 21:16, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
Well, making decisions about what's most important is one of the hardest and most important parts of good writing! A good goal would be to try to condense each subsection into one, maybe two paragraphs. I condensed the "Predecessor" subsection as an example. Good things to keep are major changes to the railroad and its operation, and interesting facts. For example, the fact that the railroad went bankrupt and changed ownership because one of the ferries blew up is a major change, and the fact that some stations are named after farms and people who invested in the railroad is interesting. Things like the names of the locomotives and all the ferry companies acquired by the railroad, or a story about a potential foreclosure on the locomotives that didn't end up actually happening, don't need to be here. Readers can still learn about these at the separate article if they want, but only the most important facts go here. Hopefully this example helps.

Bombardier's financial crisis continues[edit]

Well, Mr. Kew Gardens 613

Since you love the R32's and R42's very much, you will see them in service for many more years to come. Here's the scoop from Marketwatch dated December 22, 2015 about Bombardier's money woes. I guess Bombardier owes their creditors and vendors an awful lot of money. I reviewed their annual balance sheet and it does NOT look good at all (HUGE LOSSES in the billions).

Sorry to have to report this, and will keep you informed on future developments on this matter, but Happy Holidays anyway.

Sincerely, Joe jlee39@verizon.net

A recent Reuters report said Bombardier is exploring the sale of any of its other business units, as well as a potential investments from private-equity firms, hedge funds or other foreign governments, something Scotiabank (Bombardier's creditor) analyst Turan Quettawala said might be necessary.

Bombardier has announced that it will spin off its train-making unit through an initial public offering next year, but the analyst said the accretion from this “is not likely to be that material.”

In addition, it is unlikely to resolve Bombardier’s balance-sheet cash-flow crunch and will negatively impact the company’s access to debt markets.

“As such, we don’t see this as the right course of action,” Quettawala said, because Bombardier will run out of cash by mid-2016.

If we read and comprehend this article correctly, it may appear that no new R179 subway cars will be produced by Bombardier until a buyer is found, and the new buyer and owner will possibly build and produce these new R179 subway cars, and agree with all terms of the contract set forth by the MTA.

why can't you just quit it with the duplication information at the 14 street 8 avenue article will you — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 12:25, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Excitable user who works on subway articles[edit]

Regarding the 3RR report at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/3RRArchive303#User:TheManchoMan reported by User:100.12.206.17 (Result: Blocked). Recently you left a notice on an IP talk. This seems to be an alternate account of User:TheManchoMan. Do you have any ideas of what to do? He seems to be an endless fount of personal attacks. If there is no hope of reasoning with him, an indefinite block might be considered. I am not sure whether his edits are useful. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 03:55, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

His edits aren't useful and other editors including Vcohen, who along with me works on the transit pages, don't agree with his edits. I think that he has good intentions, but he doesn't communicate with the rest of the community and gets angry when there work is changed. I have a feeling that that might need to be done. Thanks. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 15:23, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
how come you are not deleting the b and l train images but only the 4 train image you stubborn person — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:22, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

I just did, and I would have done so sooner, if I had noticed. Thanks for pointing it out. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 20:25, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

cut it out now this instance i explain to vochen why so quit it now this instance— Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:22, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

are you blind? you can't tell the difference between an r142 and r142a and an r68 and r68a and an r143 and an r160? plus the 4 is mostly r142s, the b is mostly r68as and the l is mostly r143s so quit it — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:28, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

I can tell the difference, and you don't need to include both in the article. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 20:30, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

why not? r142as are regularly assigned to the 4, r160s are regularly assigned to the l and r68s are regularly assigned to the b so stop being stubborn and give me a good explanation like i have — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:34, 31 December 2015 (UTC)


While you are at it go do the 7, A, J, and a lot of other services. It is truly not needed. Also, sign your posts.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 20:37, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

wow just wow you clearly are stubborn and you have never even bother to give me a logical reason all you did was dismissed me you are very stubborn that's what i don't like about you kew gardens — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:39, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

the 4, b and l lines have two car types assigned to them whereas the 7, a and 2 lines only have one car type assigned so quit being stubborn and give me a logical reason like i have

being dismissive and reverting ain't gonna solve it

7 – R188 & R62A A – 1 SET R32, R68A, R46 I didn't mention the 2 I mentioned the J – R32 & R160A --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 20:44, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

as long as those car types are assigned to those lines they're still assigned and should always be included with the primary car type assignments, once again you are still being stubborn and not giving me a logical reason other than dismissing me and reverting me simply because you think it's pointless you sound pretty arrogant saying that — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:48, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

like i said before, as long as they are regularly assigned there it's still assigned and should not be reverted so quit your stubbornness and listen to reason and learn how to be logical about it — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 20:51, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

you see what i mean about my description of you kew gardens?

Your work is unnecessary and other editors that have worked on NYC Subway articles disagree with you. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 21:13, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

wow just wow i knew you are completely stubborn and arrogant and don't give any logical reason as to why they should be reverted other than just disagreeing for the sake of disagreeing — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 21:15, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

How am I arrogant? If your edits were useful I would be thanking you for them, but these edits are not. Can we both stop talking about it and ask other editors whether they prefer the articles before you edited them. I am fine with the edits if there is a consensus that they should be done. I am sorry that you are being offended. It is great to have another editor adding stuff to wikipedia. I know that you are a new user, so this is fine. I made some edits that other people didn't like concerning the NYC subway, when I first came on as well. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 21:18, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

because of all the reasons i've stated above, you need to stop being so dismissive towards me and stop saying my edits are all useless, that's being dismissive TheManchoMan (talk) 21:22, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

just because you don't agree with me doesn't mean my edits are useless nor are they wrong either, reverting people is not based on personal disagreements TheManchoMan (talk) 21:23, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

besides if my edits are useless then how come i went out of my way and try to explain to you then? you just keep saying they are wrong because you don't like them, that's being dismissive and that's not the way to be logical about it. TheManchoMan (talk) 21:26, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

User:TheManchoMan, you need to convince others that your edits are a net improvement. We may be a 'free encyclopeda' but not all changes that people submit are accepted.

Message from JoesphBarbaro[edit]

Hey Kew Gardens, I received a message from JoesphBarbaro on Wikimedia Commons today. It regards something on NYC Transit forums. It reads in part:

Also, I need to ask if you can please tell Kew Gardens aka Union Tpke to come here so that he and I can contact one another. Or you can please tell him to contact me at "Your MTA Wiki". I'm known as RollOver at both NYCT Forums and Your MTA Wiki. I really got to inform Kew Gardens aka Union Tpke about some member on NYCTF that repeatedly keeps downvoting his and my posts for literally no reason, so I wonder if he can send that person a private message and telling that person to knock it off.

While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation.

  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.

R (New York City Subway service)`[edit]

Why do we need all that info about why the R won't be extended further into Manhattan or Queens? or that it no longer needs to skip 53rd and 45th Streets? or how much it costs? or the 4th Avenue relay impact? When the J was extended to Broad Street in 2015 or the weekend M to Essex Street in 2014, we just simply said they were being extended and why. I didn't see anything saying why can't the J go into Brooklyn or the M to Chambers, how much these extensions cost, or how it impacts other services. Also, the R extension will not happen until this Fall and some things can change along the way that can impact it, so I feel it it is too soon to mention so much detail since they can change frequently. Maybe it will extend to Midtown or Queens, maybe it will not happen at all.

First of all, you should sign your posts. Second of all, the fact that it is now stopping at some stations is important. How much it costs could be taken out.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 00:23, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

How do you sign posts? Okay, the 45th and 53rd Street stops should be mentioned, but I don't see the need to mention why the R will not be extended to Queens or Manhattan. There have been many other proposals to extend other subway services in the past, but I do not see them being mentioned anywhere in the articles. I only see information on changes that actually occurred. Same with what you just put for the W.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/127872292@N06/? On the 2 and 5 articles, a proposed swap in 2000 is mentioned in those articles. --Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 00:28, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
I only see it on the 5 train article and i think it should be removed since it never happened. There are just way too many proposed changes that never occurred and it is impossible to put them all here. 67.84.106.240 (talk) 00:33, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
I have no great interest in the question, being a mere Wikipedia:Talk page stalker of this user who has done notably good things in the past. Anyway this is not the right place to discuss the article. It has its own talk page at Talk:R (New York City Subway service) and that's the place to ask questions so more interested editors can see clarify anything relevant. Incidentally, an hour from now I shall probably be on an R train, but still am not interested in possible extensions of its run. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:28, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

M23 bus[edit]

Hey Kew Gardens, I hope everything is well. I am writing an article about the 23rd Street Crosstown Line. I wanted to know if you have any information or memorabilia related to the M23 bus after it was converted from a streetcar line (well, it was the M26 until 1989, but I can't find anything in NY Times or Fulton History). I'd appreciate it if you had anything that could be of help. Thank you, epicgenius (talk) 18:29, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

W Train and Trip Planner[edit]

I got the schedule using Trip Planner's "Service in the Area" function.

How to use it: On the mta.info front page, in the Trip Planner box, click 'Service in the Area', enter a location, date and time and it'll show you the full schedules for all routes near that location at that date and time. (Or instead of going to the MTA's homepage you can go to http://tripplanner.mta.info/MyTrip/ui_web/serviceinthearea/default.aspx and enter in the information there.)

OR you can get to a schedule directly by placing in the URL and editing the input date, route, and direction. For example:

http://tripplanner.mta.info/MyTrip/ui_web/serviceinthearea/Timetable.aspx?operator=SUB&route=W&inputDate=11/07/16&direction=S&type=W Route: W train, Date: 11/07/2016, Direction: Southbound

http://tripplanner.mta.info/MyTrip/ui_web/serviceinthearea/Timetable.aspx?operator=SUB&route=E&inputDate=10/31/16&direction=N&type=W Route, E train, Date: 10/31/2016, Direction: Northbound

While I'm at it, here's another cool Trip Planner fucntion. "Point-to-Point schedule".

Available at http://tripplanner.mta.info/mytrip/ui_web/point2point/default.aspx, you enter in an origin and a destination, and it shows you all the options to get between those points, and displays them together. For example, if you set up a trip from Kew Gardens to Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue, you can select the E and F as options and it will display the schedules of both routes combined. It's pretty cool.

Early history of the IRT subway[edit]

I was on this page a short time ago, reformatting some old style references and consolidating some duplicates. I noticed that you've done some good work on the page (and on many others about the N.Y.C. subways). But there's one reference (#9) that's you added recently and is undefined, and I couldn't figure out even though I went through a bunch of New York Times articles from around that date (that's where I expected it to find the info) and looked through the page history carefully. Since you added the info and the reference not too long ago, I'm hoping that you can remember or figure it out, and fill in the reference. Thanks. Ira Leviton (talk) 03:17, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Bergen[edit]

Hi there,

Just noticed you nominated Bergen Street (IND Culver Line) for GA. I've never edited any subway/station article, so I'm not going to review it, but I'm there pretty regularly if you want any pictures (same goes for other F stations on the between South Brooklynish and Manhattan). FYI. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 00:54, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Adding pictures would be great! Thank you so much.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 00:57, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

I sort of meant if there's anything in particular you think would be helpful. :) In general it's not something I would think of. Well, it wasn't anyway. I happen to have my camera when I got off there a couple days ago and took a couple, but it was busy so I was sort of restricted to the poorly maintained end. I don't think any of them are necessary for the article, but maybe I'll think to take others as I hop around. :) — Rhododendrites talk \\ 00:21, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

BMT Sea Beach Line and IND Culver Line station updates[edit]

The latest subway map [8] has the note for reopening dates for the Sea Beach Line stations and closing dates for the Culver Line stations removed, which likely means that date has changed, so why did you revert all my edits? Another thing, the MTA service advisory board for May 22 [9], which is the date the Manhattan-bound Culver Line stations are supposed to close and the Sea Beach stations reopen, doesn't mention the former and the latter still says " until Spring 2017," so shouldn't we wait until a new reopening/closing dates have been confirmed to edit the station articles? Also, if the Manhattan-bound platform of Avenue X (IND Culver Line) was already rehabilitated, why would it be closed again? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.3.78.40 (talk) 20:02, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

That map was quickly done. On April 30 it said that all stations would be reopened on the Culver Line. Earlier on the morning of May 1 the Culver Service Notice page said that Avenue U and Avenue X would be reopened at a later date, and later that afternoon it was announced that they would reopen on May 8. The map that was out until May 2 was the map they were planning to put on the website after the Culver Line stations reopened. This map mentioned the May 22 date. They probably quickly scrambled to make a new map and it therefore didn't include the May 22 information. You can also find it by checking out planned service changes for May 22 and May 23. I don't know what the deal is with Avenue X.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 00:39, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

The planned service changes for May 23 has yet to say the Manhattan-bound Culver stations will close [10], but the Sea Beach closure is not there either. That being said, perhaps we should leave the Sea Beach info in (changing it should something new come out), but remove the Culver closure dates for now until that advisory board gets updated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.3.78.40 (talk) 00:55, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

IND Culver Line renovations[edit]

Hey Kew Gardens. I undid your edits since the MTA map updates constantly but we are citing a particular edition of the map, not the map as a whole. Is there another news source we can use that says the renovations start this week? epicgenius (talk) 13:57, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

What is wrong with the map? It is correct. The information was only taken down temporarily until Avenue U and Avenue X reopened, and they have reopened. The renovations start on May 22. I don't know why you think they would start this week? There are no other news sources.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 17:19, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Park Avenue BMT Jamaica station.[edit]

Hey esteemed editor KG. How did you ever find that closing date? I noticed that it was 101 years ago exactly (yesterday), did you get some kind of "This Day in History" e-mail or notice? Either way, that is awesome. You don't even know how much time I spent trying to find/figure it out. --SkipperRipper (talk) 17:54, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

I have also been looking for a while. Someone posted it on subchat. It was a a This Day in History thing. I had been considering creating the article before you did. Now we need to do an article for Evergreen Avenue on the Myrtle Avenue Line.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 19:29, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

Former Harlem Line stations[edit]

How have you been doing when it comes to adding info on former stations on the not yet Metro-North Harlem Line? Many of the sources you have are pretty good, and some of the others I've found have been okay. But the 1898 schedule you showed me in your message had nothing on the line north of Mott Haven Junction, which I suppose might be okay for you since that's what you're working on. I on the other hand still have to struggle to find the opening dates for Claremont Park (NYC station) and 183rd Street (NYC station). For Claremont Park (originally Central Morrisania), I was able to trace it back to at least 1869, although it could've been earlier, and the oldest evidence of 183rd Street station I was able to find goes back to 1901. That might be a little older too, although I still haven't seen any evidence of the station before 1897. I still have my doubts about Morrisania and Mott Haven-138th Street stations. And to top that off, the 1899 map where I found out about Fordham Heights (NYC station) on the Hudson Line places Mott Haven station at Mott Haven Junction! ---------User:DanTD (talk) 02:22, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

GA nominations[edit]

I like that you and Tdorante10 are helping to improve so many New York City Subway articles, and that you are nominating them for GA status. It is much appreciated. However, I don't think 191st Street (IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line) or 190th Street (IND Eighth Avenue Line) are ready for GA status yet. Do you mind if I remove the GAN tags and improve these articles? I will put them back in around a month when these articles are more ready. epicgenius (talk) 00:31, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Second Avenue Subway R train[edit]

I don't think it's significant enough to devote several sentences to the R train in that article. In my opinion, there need to be at least three or four trips; otherwise mentioning the R would be confusing to readers. Perhaps just a brief mention of that one trip would be good enough when you do decide to unhide that text. epicgenius (talk) 02:11, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Where do you think it should be mentioned there?--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 02:15, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I think in the "Extent and service" section, and that's it. Also, it's too early to speculate whether one R train a day will continue to run to 125th Street during phase 2.
It definitely should not be added to the service template, like the one "5" train trip at Nostrand Avenue and Kingston Avenue is not mentioned in the service templates there. epicgenius (talk) 02:47, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Kew Gardens 613; regarding your comments on your request, I shall proceed here with the assumption the article contains no copyright violations; If I find any suspect text I can rewrite short passages; but mass copypasta fixing is rather beyond my scope.

No worries; I found it an interesting and detailed article, though i think it could possibly be split into two, perhaps pre-1900 and 1901 to present.

2. If you can go to the Shore Line Trolley Museum, see if you can find Deck Roof car 3662. That's the only Deck Roof Car left, and Wikimedia has no picture of that car.

Reply if you are able to do any of these.

PATH (rail system)#History[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens. I appreciate the work you are doing at PATH (rail system). If you want to add more references to the history section, I recommend the book Rails Under the Mighty Hudson (1975) by Brian Cudahy. I believe the New York Public Library's Mid-Manhattan temporary branch has a physical copy, and so does the Main Branch. I've been meaning to borrow that book for a while, but I haven't gotten the time, so if you want, you could use that book. epicgenius (talk) 22:09, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

I have it, and I have been using it. I will add more.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 22:17, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Cool. Keep up the nice additions. epicgenius (talk) 22:24, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Kew Gardens 613. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Biblio (talk) 02:43, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Woodlawn Station[edit]

Actually, I did not notice much of the text which now appears there when I did the revision. That's strange.

I was just attempting to correct the mistake regarding the Woodlawn accident and the stopping at Fordham Station. Perhaps you would like to address that, instead of me. Bbaldwin7 (talk) 14:11, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Anyway, if you don't, I'll just make the corrections regarding the 1907 accident and the use of the New York Central stations at Woodlawn and Fordham and leave the rest alone.

The NYNH&H sent football specials to Fordham University's Rose Hill campus (Fordham Station) with permission of the New York Central, just as it sent "horticultural specials" to their Botanical Gardens station. These were special charter trains, and they do not indicate that the New Haven maintained a station stop for its trains in the Bronx. There was no switch to Fordham Station in the mid-1970s for New Haven trains. This was a new service to-and-from Connecticut that was arranged between Metro-North and CDOT New Haven. At that time, the NYNH&H and the NYC did not have a comparable ongoing agreement for use of a Harlem Division station by New Haven trains for at least half-a-century.Bbaldwin7 (talk) 14:39, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Nobody is suggesting there was a switch in the mid-1970's. Penn Central bought the New York, New Haven and Hartford in 1969, and trackage rights between New York Central and the New York, New Haven and Hartford did in fact exist in 1848.---------User:DanTD (talk) 14:44, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
Your text suggests to me that there was an ongoing agreement from the 1920s for the New Haven Railroad to use the New York Central's Fordham Station, and that this switched from a designated use of the Woodlawn Station, due to the New Haven's preference, motivated by football traffic to Fordham's Bronx campus. Beyond this, the existing text appears to leave the reader with the impression that from the 1920s until the Metro-North era, the New Haven Railroad continued to use Fordham Station. It did not. There was no further use of Fordham Station by the New Haven until CDOT New Haven requested a stop in the Bronx from Metro-North and this was scheduled on CDOT New Haven Division timetables, beginning in mid-to-late 1970s. New Haven trackage-rights into Grand Central over the NYC Harlem Division never gave the New Haven Railroad full access to the use of NYC Harlem Division stations without further negotiation. Only the right-to-passage was fully extended.Bbaldwin7 (talk) 15:41, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
First, Kew Gardens 613 complained that I've "messed up" DanTD's work. Now, DanTD is writing to say, "this person might have a legitimate reason to edit it this way". Question: Who am I responding to here? The Wikipedia history says the author of the text is DanTD.

I grew up in the northwest Bronx and watched, photographed, and rode the trains of the Harlem Division from 1961 to 1985. I own dozens of books on the NYC and NH operations in the Bronx, etc. There are often mistakes made by authors who are referencing things with too much generality, or repeating old inaccuracies which have appeared in print. No one can have a good reason to continue spreading such mistakes. I'm only interested in correcting facts which are wrong or confusing. I don't wish to step on another's good faith efforts to add or expand on material here. As I said, I was only concerned with correcting what was inaccurate regarding the 1907 accident location, and the confusion regarding the New Haven Railroad's regular stops in the Bronx on the Harlem Division. Bbaldwin7 (talk) 15:41, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

I don't know how the other text that you had added was deleted, as none of it appeared in the screen text I was editing, or on the page that initially opened on Wikipedia. Why that happened is a mystery to me, I've never seen anything like that occur before.Bbaldwin7 (talk) 15:41, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, Dan. I can't tell you exactly when the fire was, but as I recall in passing it, the fire did not cause a structural collapse of the building. I seem to recall that it was standing with boarded-up windows in the mid-seventies. All the Harlem stations got high-level platforms to use with the new Metropolitan cars during the summer of 1971 or 72. At the time, the division was under the just bankrupt Penn Central and the MTA was giving them cash to do all of this. On some stations the clearance was sufficient to allow the old platform peaked roofing to remain. Conrail took over from Penn Central in 1976, and with more money from the MTA they started to tear down almost all of the old station structures. Most of these stations hadn't sold tickets since the 1940s. Some like the Botanical Gardens station had been boarded up since the late-40s. I recall that the Penn Central even padlocked and chained-shut the waiting room in the Fordham Station about 1971, and it stayed that way until at least the mid-late-70s. Woodlawn was treated the same way. These stations were all locked and closed, long before the buildings were torn down. Fordham Station is perhaps the only one of the Harlem Division stations in the Bronx that now exists and has an open waiting area. Even when these stations were boarded up there was always access to the platforms and, of course, you could buy a ticket on the train. I'd say that all the old station buildings were removed starting about 1976, after Conrail took over, and there was a second great infusion of MTA cash. I'd say the job was finished by about 1980. I was not in the Woodlawn or Wakefield areas of the Bronx much during that time period, but I recall being surprised to drive by Woodlawn one day and see the station building gone. The 1970s changed everything. I totally lost interest when the old equipment and structures went. It was a totally different world. Seeing FL-9 diesels painted back into NH McGinnis colors was the only wonderful surprise and that happened, just before I left the Bronx and moved to LA. I'd suggest contacting the Bronx County Historical Society and a rail fan chapter dedicated to the New York Central and the Harlem, Hudson, and Putnam Divisions. I'm sure they'll have all the clippings and probably a lot more. Bbaldwin7 (talk) 17:14, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Grasmere SIR station move[edit]

Hey, I wanted to drop in and ask what was the rationale for moving the Grasmere station page removing the disambiguation. Last I checked you were supportive of leaving the disambiguation in place, so why move it? —LRG5784 (talk · contribs · email) 20:22, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

There is no reason to keep Staten Island Railway in there. I was initially opposed to removing the disambiguation for the subway pages because it would mess up templates. Since this issue has been resolved, I think it makes sense to move the pages. Adding Staten Island Railway into the article title does not add anything, and is not concise.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 20:23, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
How so, when it has been stated time and time again that to those outside of the Metro New York area, removing the disambiguation does more harm than good? All for the sake of conforming to JHunterJ's argument about precision? I am yet to be convinced. Removing the disambiguation seems like lack of precision to me. —LRG5784 (talk · contribs · email) 20:54, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
The very first sentence of WP:PRECISION says this: "Usually, titles should be precise enough to unambiguously define the topical scope of the article, but no more precise than that." (emphasis added). If a title is unambiguous, there is no need to add more information. I'm outside the Metro New York area and I certainly don't need it. Mackensen (talk) 23:20, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

North American railway signaling - Copy&Paste Concern[edit]

I happened upon the North American railway signaling that you placed a notice on regarding copy and pasted text. If I could make a suggestion, you may want to go back and redo/modify how the Template:Copypaste was done, since it doesn't use the available slot to indicate where you suspect the material was taken from (See the templete page for directions/the format), as well as bringing it up in the article talk page. Further the link that was in your edit summary is now dead, the website recently redid something involving databases. Googling the title from the references section does bring back a copy, but I didn't have luck on the original website that the link points to. Also, the article hasn't been modified since you posted that notice, it might be worth telling Diannaa 🍁 (talk) about it, since she specializes in copyright concerns. She could either advice corrective action you could take or just remove the material if it is a problem. (You can reply back here, as I've watched this page.)--The Navigators (talk)-May British Rail Rest in Peace. 02:30, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

This is a United States Department of Transportation document, and as such, is in the public domain. Attribution is required though. This is done by incorporating the template {{PD-notice}} as part of the citation. I have done so for this article, as well as adding an archive link to the citation. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 12:02, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Fixing links to IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens. I noticed that you're fixing links from IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line to IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line. While I don't really have a problem for the most part, I think you should be aware of two things:

  1. Generally you shouldn't fix redirect links outside of the "article", "category", "draft", "template", "Wikipedia", or "portal" spaces, especially if it's only fixing a redirect. I would advise avoiding fixing links in any talk pages, or people's user pages. For example, this edit to a talk archive (or this one) is not necessary since very few readers are going to see it, except maybe for the user whose comments you're editing.
  2. Some editors may also bring up the guideline WP:NOTBROKEN, which gives the example That is, editors should not change, for instance, [[Franklin Roosevelt]] to [[Franklin D. Roosevelt]] or [[Franklin D. Roosevelt|Franklin Roosevelt]] just to "fix a redirect". I personally don't have a problem with fixing redirect links, but I generally only do so if it's part of a substantive edit that changes something else (e.g. rewording).

Thank you. epicgenius (talk) 17:46, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

The same goes for the links to he West Side Line you're "fixing". Please see WP:NOTBROKEN. Beyond My Ken (talk) 21:41, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
+1; those edits clutter watchlists and are unnecessary, as explained above. (You might also give some thoughts to trimming your talk page; Help:Archiving a talk page should get you started, or look at some other editors' talk pages.) -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 01:10, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Recent page moves[edit]

Hi. I haven't been bothered to find the discussion (if any), but is there a reason for using "IRT Lines" as a disambiguator instead of just "IRT" for Grand Central–42nd Street (IRT Lines)? If not I would pick "IRT lines", since "Lines" would probably be considered either title case (which WP:TITLEFORMAT advises against) or a random mid-sentence capital letter.

(Similarly, 63rd Street Lines should probably be 63rd Street lines per WP:MOSCAPS, but I don't know if there's consensus for that.) Jc86035 (talk) 00:58, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@Epicgenius: I think that makes sense.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 01:21, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
I also think lowercase "lines" might be better if we're talking about multiple lines. I don't think stations on a single line, or articles about singular lines, have consensus for lowercase. epicgenius (talk) 01:47, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Epicgenius and Kew Gardens 613: "IRT lines" or "IRT"?
What was the issue with using "New York City Subway", by the way? If it's just the length "MTA" or "NYCS" could be used instead – if I had not read far too many of these articles I would not know what an IRT was; at least "MTA" would be of more immediate relevance. Jc86035 (talk) 01:56, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Jc86035: In the case of articles like 50th Street (IND Lines), 145th Street (IND Lines), and Seventh Avenue (IND Lines), the previous titles only named one of the two lines that stopped there. I'm not sure about the other titles. Maybe Kew Gardens can elaborate. epicgenius (talk) 02:04, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

DYK for East Side Access[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 16 November 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article East Side Access, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the East Side Access railroad expansion in New York City has been estimated to cost about $3.5 billion per mile of new tunnel, seven times more than similar projects in other countries? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/East Side Access. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, East Side Access), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

SAS Phase 2 FONSI report[edit]

Thanks for adding the information. I really appreciate it. On a side note, I noticed that you asked about whether the MTA could build the tail track at either 106th and 116th Streets. Judging by their response, I guess there goes the possibility of building a side platform station at 116th Street. epicgenius (talk) 22:54, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Yup. They would have to widen the tunnel a bit on both side, underpinning buildings to do so. Janno Lieber seemed intrigued by the idea when I mentioned it to him at the meeting. Somewhat unrelated, but I hope he becomes the next Chairman.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 23:00, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Inwood and Woodside[edit]

Hello. I see you've added Inwood and Woodside to {{MNRR stations navbox}}. These entries currently link to disambiguation pages. Please can you add appropriate entries to the template labyrinth so these links point to the right articles or to suitably named redlinks? It looks as if Inwood needs to go into {{NYC stations}} but I'm not sure whether to add it to the (New York Central Railroad) section, to match the last entry on Inwood station, or the (Metro-North) section, to give it a more appropriate name if and when the extension gets built. Woodside doesn't seem to match any of the entries on Woodside railway station, so I guess that goes into {{NYNH&H stations}}'s MNRR section, but I'd rather an expert get it right than me take a guess.

M100 timetable[edit]

Hi!

I was the one that uploaded the M100 timetable earlier this week. I purchased it awhile back on eBay, and I am on the search of finding more memorabilia that could be very useful for the bus articles. Yes, I have a few Bronx bus timetables from approx. 1966, but not for any other boroughs.

Short descriptions for NYCS Bronx stations[edit]

It looks like we are doing the same work simultaneously, and it does not make sense, because it takes a lot of time to check what has been done and what has not been done. If you are going to add short descriptions to all subway stations in the Bronx (or even to all subway stations in NYC) anyway, I will just move to a system in another city. If not, we probably need to split the job, I will be happy to do part of it. In the Bronx list, we are now down to Hunts Point Avenue (IRT Pelham Line) (all stations above this one have short descriptions), I did not touch other lists yet.--Ymblanter (talk) 16:26, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Now I have completed the Bronx and plan to do Manhattan next, unless of course you want to do it yourself. I am only adding the short descriptions, and for any foreseeable future I am only interested in subway stations.--Ymblanter (talk) 08:32, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

MOS:DATEUNIFY and WP:CITEVAR[edit]

You need to reread MOS:DATEUNIFY, MOS:DATERET, WP:CITEVAR, and WP:CITESTYLE, because you are wrong, wrong, wrong in what you are doing to reference date formats (esp. accessdates, to which MOS:DATETIES does not apply – again, look at MOS:DATEUNIFY again) at these articles. In fact, it's disrtuptive editing, esp. in using a script to do it. I would urge you to self-revert, and start a discussion at the talk page and establish a consensus if you want to change reference formats. --IJBall (contribstalk) 13:23, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

LaGuardia CC E jeh.jpg

Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College is hosting the second annual Wikipedia Translatathon! At this event on Thursday evening and during the day Friday this week, anyone from the public is invited to LaGuardia to join students, professors, and CUNY faculty in translating Wikipedia articles among any languages which attendees understand. Themes for this event include public health and the history of New York City.

New York City has a large immigrant population and great diversity of speakers of various languages. Among all schools in New York City, LaGuardia has the highest percentage of immigrant students, the highest percentage of students who speak a language other than English as their first language, and the greatest representation of language diversity. It is a strength of LaGuardia that it can present "Wikipedia translatathons", which are Wikipedia translation events.

GA reviewer request[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens! I hope I'm not asking for too much but I was wondering if you could help me out with performing the review for MAX Yellow Line. I don't believe it'll require too much work as I've match it as best as I can to the MAX Red Line article which has already met GA standards. The lack of reviewers for the trains project has really discouraged me from pursuing other articles. I'm hoping that checking this article off my list will change that. With your assistance, I will of course lend a hand at your pending requests as well. --Truflip99 (talk) 01:12, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Truflip99: Thanks so much for the request. I have really cut back my Wikipedia editing over the past month or so as I have Finals and lots of projects to work on. I hope you are doing well. If I find any time I will try to help, but I would not count on it. I am sure I will have time after the end of school on the 22nd. Stay well and don't be discouraged!--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 12:21, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place/Cortlandt Street[edit]

I'm looking at the ridership list, I don't see Cortlandt Street (Broadway) station on the list anymore. Last year I initially assumed that it would appear with Chambers Street–World Trade Center/Park Place, but it's not there either. Any idea what we should do about it?

@Cards84664, Epicgenius, and LRG5784: The list of complexes was updated with it, reading Chambers St / WTC / Park Place / Cortlandt St.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 11:15, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

42nd Street Shuttle[edit]

What's the issue with the shuttle renovation? Cards84664 (talk) 19:17, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

I know that it is needed, but don't like it for selfish reasons. My favorite spot in the system will be blocked off and put into employee space, and the renovation will whitewash the historical significance of the shuttle and of IRT and subway history. But, I digress. ADA improvements are needed, but I would think that they could move the employee space elsewhere, and have a historical display here. It clearly isn't a security concern. If it was, they would have done something about it after 9/11.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 19:25, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Rollback revoked[edit]

Hi Kew Gardens 613,

I have removed your rollback access in response to the rollback you made [≥https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=C_(New_York_City_Subway_service)&diff=910345354&oldid=910344690 here]. While it was my edit that was the subject of the rollback, I do think this needs to be addressed as abusing rollback to bat down valid concerns about sourcing is a rather severe issue for the integrity of Wikipedia's content. I am therefore herewith giving you the opportunity to comment on what happened there.

Regards,

Samsara 08:22, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

PS: You may wish to review Wikipedia:Rollback to understand how rollback is expected to be used and not used. Samsara 08:24, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

@Samsara: I recognize my error rolling you back here. Rollback has been a very useful tool for me to to fix persistent vandalism of articles, such as that article. However, upon reviewing my past use of the tool, I see edits where a response should have been given to explain why I decided to undo the edit, such as this edit and my very ill-advised rollback I made here. In the case of the former, I should have undone the edit and explained that I was going to find sources for the edit, which I ended up doing. I should have discussed it on the talk page, which I did not do immediately. In the case of the edit on the C (New York City Subway service) article, the reason I had rollbacked your edit had to do with your edit summary. You had written "subsequent survival not verified(/-iable?))," which seemed very odd, considering that I thought the article established that R32s were still in service, given the infobox, the image of R32s on the C in the article, and the phrase "However, delivery of the R179s was delayed until 2017 and some R32s will remain in service after the order is completed." I was not thinking about how you don't share the same expertise on NY's transit system. I should have written in the edit summary "Other places in the article show that R32s are still in service, and on the C." Epicgenius came in and made a thoughtful addition to the article that addressed your valid concerns. Had it gone to the talk page, I would have understood why you made your edit. Upon looking back at my use of Rollback, I have seen a few other improper instances of the tool. My use of the tool has really helped at stopping persistent vandalism to subway line articles and subway car articles. While I would love to still have access to the tool, I understand that I disobeyed the guidelines on #When to use rollback. I used it to reverse good-faith edits in situations where an explanatory edit summary would normally be expected) and understand why my rollback rights have been removed. If this decision is permanent, I understand your decision. However, if it is at all possible for me to regain access to the feature after a 6- or 12-month ban from Rollback access, it would be very much appreciated. If access to the feature is given back to me, I will make sure to use it only as it allowed to be used, per #When to use rollback, and will use it more sparingly. Thank you for calling me out for my misuse of the future as it will make me a better editor, will ensure that people are not discouraged from editing for fear of being rolledback, and because they won't receive usefull feedback, and because I have worked as an editor to improve sourcing on articles to ensure that content is accurate, and is well sourced. I look forward to your response. Thanks and have a great day.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 11:19, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
