Please, Help Wikify[edit]

Dear LrdChaos: Please, if you can, kindly help me to wikify the following article: Sylvia Ada Wachuku. GOD bless you abundantly! (Lord777 15:27, 8 March 2006 (UTC)).



Thank you for your stub submission. You may wish to note that it is preferable to use a stub template from Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types instead of using simply {{stub}}, if you can.

Thanks! Ryanjunk 16:22, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Stubs 2[edit]

Haha, passing on the message, I see. Thanks for the correction :). —Mirlen 03:35, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

I get it.[edit]

Hi LrdChaos, and thanks for the "you can help with stubs message". I'd be interest in in helping with spacecraft and related stub sorting. But I got and look at how many stubs there are and how many categories there are, and I'm not sure where to start.

But yeah, I guess I will help with that stub. Right now I'm working on my first article that hopefully won't suck.Rob 05:00, 13 March 2006 (UTC)


I pasted text for another user in the window I had open for you. Then I had an edit conflict with myself. Rob 05:16, 13 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for correcting the Russian Tea Room article to having a restaurant stub instead of a vague stub, I wasn't sure how to find the list of possible stub categories. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

No problem. There's a list of stub categories (in a tree-like hierarchy) at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types. —LrdChaos 15:03, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Fremantle Hospital[edit]

Hey there, I was wondering about your reasons for removing the coords info for this article? I will be putting it back but I wanted to know where you are coming from first. I've no wish for an edit war. I spent quite a bit of time entering this information for quite a few articles and would hate to think that it will be removed without due consideration. My thinking was that, wiki extensions for maps will be available eventually and having the coords in the article will help. However on a more immediate level, someone looking to find out where a landmark is can use the mapping pages linked by the coords to find exactly where the landmark is. Also you can download a Google Earth file that contains KML for all the wiki articles that contain coords. It means you can roam around an area seeing where things are on Google Earth and then link back to the article from there. You can get back to me here, my page or the article. Thanks.SeanMack 03:04, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Generally, the coords don't seem that important to the article. Sure, you can take the coords into a map program (like Google Earth) and see the area, but for a hospital, there doesn't seem to be much need for it (unless there were some interesting feature of the grounds that could be seen in an aerial view, but this doesn't seem to be the case here). I'm not strongly opposed to including the coords (so, if you were to put them back, I wouldn't take them out again), but they just don't seem to me like something that really adds to the article. —LrdChaos 05:59, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
But, the coords are there to provide basic mapping access as well as more exotic things like Google earth. For example if you click on the cords link and scroll down to Find this location on MSN Maps Australia, this will open the mapping website exactly at the hospital. I think this does add hugely to the usefulness of articles in wikipedia. If I had browsed across an article and wanted to know where exactly it was I just need 2 clicks. As an editor all I need to do is add this small template and automatically a reader has access to a lot of functionality. I guess it's a simple difference of opinion between us. I've put the coords back as I do feel strongly about putting coords in articles. Regards SeanMack 06:54, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

River LINE and WP:NJ[edit]

On behalf of Wikipedia:WikiProject New Jersey, I wanted to thank you for your work on the River LINE, a hole that had existed for quite some time in New Jersey-related articles. I seem to have some overlap with your fields of interest in rail transportation, focusing more on the Norther New Jersey and New York City area, with major edits to stations and service for New Jersey Transit, the Long Island rail Roand and the New York City Subway. I'd like to invite you to join and participate in Wikipedia:WikiProject New Jersey (or just WP:NJ), an effort to fill in the holes and expand details about all things about New Jersey. There are no rules or regulations, just a group of people who share a common interest and can help out with subjects that interset you so that you can broaden your own horizons or work collaboratively with others. We have been able to accomplish huge amounts of work by working together on projects of common interest that could be attacked by a divide-and-conquer approach. Alansohn 12:32, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. My rail interests mostly tend to the northern-NJ and LIR area, but not exclusively. I've just joined up at WP:NJ; thanks for letting me know about that. —LrdChaos 14:36, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Welcome aboard! I've created articles for stations on the Pascack Valley Line of New Jersey Transit, as well as for the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. For the Long Island Rail Road, I've created articles for stations on the Far Rockaway Branch and Port Washington Branch. Clearly, there are huge swathes of stations that are uncreated. Even for ones that do exist, there should be some better standardization of what should be included. Any thoughts on what you might want to work on? Alansohn 16:22, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Your edit to United Airlines Flight 232[edit]

I am fairly sure it was heading to Chicago. I am away from my paper references just now but can check in a few hours. I won't revert your edit just now. Sorry if it turns out I was wrong. --Guinnog 00:53, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Just looking at the PDF of the NTSB report linked in the article's references section, it says the flight was Denver to Philadelphia via Chicago. So, in some sense we're both right; I've updated the introduction to clarify that, and make it consistent with the "Chronology of the flight" section. —LrdChaos (talk) 03:30, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Good work. I should have done that myself! I made some more minor changes to the article; see what you think. I also copied some of the quotes into the Al Haynes aricle. Those quotes blow my mind; the guy is such a hero for keeping s ocalm in an emergency. He and Fitch should be even more widely-celebrated than they are, in my opinion. --Guinnog 11:14, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

River Line[edit]

Please either add them to Category:Railroad stations on former Pennsylvania Railroad lines built after the Pennsylvania Railroad's demise or restore them to Category:Pennsylvania Railroad stations, which I have proposed for renaming to Category:Stations along Pennsylvania Railroad lines for exactly this reason. Thank you. --NE2 16:55, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

SR West Country and Battle of Britain Classes[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you are a member of the Locomotives Taskforce. I'm wondering whether you wish to comment or add your opposition/support for the SR West Country and Battle of Britain Classes article, which is listed for prospective FA status. Any constructive criticism would be greatfully received. Cheers, --Bulleid Pacific 17:45, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]


As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 23:03, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Discussion at WikiProject New Jersey[edit]

Hi, LrdChaos, User:Nightscream and I had a disagreement over certain parts of NJ municipality articles; because the discussion could potentially affect hundreds of articles, we decided to bring the discussion to WikiProject New Jersey. I would value your input in the discussion, which you can find here. Thanks, A Stop at Willoughby (talk) 15:01, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Revision to Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri articles[edit]

I noticed that you have revised either Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri or Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire.

I intend to revise those articles following the Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Article guidelines. There are more details on the discussion pages of those articles. I'd be interested in any comments you have. It would be best if your comments were on the discussion pages of the two articles.

Thank you.
