Disambiguation link notification for September 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Nailsea and Backwell railway station, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Portishead. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

List of Star Trek Novels[edit]

Dear Mattbuck:

First, the new Strange New Worlds 2016 is an e-book. I indicated that; you deleted it.

Also, the List of Star Trek Novels page is a list for Star Trek Novels (as well as Short Stories). There have been numerous (possibly hundreds) of books about Star Trek including various reference books or even fictional reference books that did not contain stories. The Miscellaneous Section of the Star Trek List of Novels page has for some reason included a few of these books.

These include: The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition (Ira Steven Behr), July 1995 The Star Trek Cookbook (Ethan Phillips and William J Birnes), January 1999 The Hologram's Handbook (Robert Picardo, with art by Jeff Yagher), 2002

Additionally, for some reason the Miscellaneous section included books that are not "Miscellaneous" but are listed under The Next Generation. These include: Articles of the Federation (Keith R. A. DeCandido), May 2005 A Singular Destiny (Keith R. A. DeCandido), January 2009

Additionally the Miscellaneous Section included books that are merely Omnibus volumes of DS9 books already listed in the DS9 section (if anything they should be listed in the DS9 section):

Twist of Faith - DS9 "relaunch" reprint omnibus (S. D. Perry, David Weddle & Jeffrey Lang and Keith R. A. DeCandido), July 2007 These Haunted Seas - DS9 Mission Gamma reprint omnibus (David R. George III and Heather Jarman), June 2008

There have been hundreds and hundreds of Star Trek comic books. Many of these have been re-printed in "book"form (IDW constantly comes out with them). Why list just the Manga comics and not all the others? None should be listed as comics are not novels (or short stories).

It is for these reasons that I deleted the other "Miscellaneous" books

One volume missing of short stories (although parodies) that I had added is: Treks Not Taken which can be found here. https://www.amazon.com/Treks-Not-Taken-Vonnegut-Generation/dp/0060952768

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:NWLLR RDT2[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:NWLLR RDT2 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

{{NWLLR RDT2}} was detailed diagram of the the North and West London Light Railway, showing all the connecting lines. I redrew it from the simple linear arrangement you had created into something that more accurately reflected the actual arrangement of lines, and then added it to {{NWLLR RDT}}.

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Mangotsfield railway station, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sleeper (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Transport in Bristol: Inner Circuit Road[edit]

I take your point that it isn't appropriate to link 'ring road' to 20th Century Road Schemes in Bristol#Inner_Circuit_road. However since we have information about the actual ring road in question, wouldn't it be better to refer to that specific information rather than a generic definition of 'ring road'? Maybe something like this:

Bristol city centre was, until the 1990s, encircled by the Inner Circuit Road — Preceding unsigned comment added by RedSquirrel (talkcontribs) 10:12, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

RedSquirrel, while I get what you're aiming at, the link target isn't suitable. The Inner Circuit Road part of that article (which by the way has anchor #Inner_Circuit_Road_(A4044), not #Inner_Circuit_Road) is about the road's construction, whereas you really want a more generalised article which explains what route the road took. If there is sufficient for an article A4044 road (Great Britain) (it's currently a redirect) then I'd say link to that, or if the 20th century article were rewritten to be grouped by road rather than by plan/actual then link to that, but as is neither is a suitable link target. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:13, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
Mattbuck it may not be perfect, but it seems a shame to lose the reference altogether. Can I suggest: 1. Call it the Inner Circuit Road, unlinked, rather than 'a ring road' (which would avoid potential confusion with the other two ring roads); 2. add a at the foot of the section? RedSquirrel (talk) 16:52, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
RedSquirrel that sounds good to me. Though see alsos usually go at the heads of sections, so perhaps there instead? -mattbuck (Talk) 19:58, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Montpelier railway station[edit]

I have edited this article in two places where it is stated that the station building was destroyed and rebuilt - the current building is part of the original construction. I struggled to find a good way to reword it without making a big deal of it. Here is a good postwar image of the surviving chunk when still in railway use:

http://archives.bristol.gov.uk/GetImage.ashx?db=Catalog&type=default&fname=43207-9-14-043.700x700.jpg

...and this shows the whole thing:

http://archives.bristol.gov.uk/GetImage.ashx?db=Catalog&type=default&fname=44819-3-164.700x700.jpg

I suspect that most of what was destroyed was the Station Master's house, but have no proof. I have seen another image showing the utilitarian postwar extension (on the site of the bit that was destroyed) also in railway use. Period Fireplaces bought the station in (I think!) the early 80s; it was pretty derelict then. RedSquirrel (talk) 09:46, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

I was at Network Rail Today and they showed me the proposals for a possible extention of metrowest down to glastonbury and street from yatton — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.37.235.165 (talkcontribs)

82.37.235.165 that's great, but have such plans been published anywhere? Is anyone taking them seriously? There used to be a railway there sure, and in principle one could reopen it, but I don't think it's really anything which is being actively considered. The MetroWest website for instance doesn't go beyond the stage 2 reopenings. For Ashton Gate it specifically says it has been ruled out for now. That you saw something is original research and gazing into a crystal ball. The key to Wikipedia is verifiability. Unless a reliable source publishes the plans, we shouldn't include them. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:22, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Deadlinks[edit]

As you saw, I have been working my way through the list of deadlinks on the cleanup list for WP:Bristol. I have dealt with quite a few but on Stoke Gifford depot almost all the planning documents on S. Glos council web site used as sources are no longer available - meaning the claims in the article are largely unsupported. As you know more about stations etc around Bristol I wondered if you could help?— Rod talk 18:23, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Rodw it's been remarkably hard to source anything for that article, I can't even find a source to say when it opened. I'll take a look later this week but don't expect much. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:43, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
