Just seeking some guidance[edit]

Hi Rob. I was only messing around with the welcome message, I wanted to see whether it would add your name or not. It did. That's my experiment over with. With regards the Renamed London Underground Stations article, I'm still creating that, my estimate is I'll have completed it by next week. Thank you for changing the title, I had wanted to do that but didn't know how to. Are there any other London Underground related articles I could create or expand on for the project that you know of? I would like to help out as best I can. I have found I do have a photograph of my own of a Piccadilly line train, I will be uploading it soon. When I upload it, to ensure all users know it is my own, what am I meant to do? Please reply on my talk page. Thanks. Greaterlondoner

Why remove important picture of Chief Vann House?[edit]

Well, it was perfect picture of Chief Vann House that I can show but i do have two pictures. one was from digital camera but it was took in winter time and I have scanned old picture of Chief Vann from archives at Murray County Library. Murray County is home of my great grandfather. I need to know if Wikiacc accepts that I have a picture in my digital camera where the Battle of Adairsville happened. he removed the image of marker about 1800's adavirsville including information on the battle. My picture is two markers stood in the front of cemetry about the battle that was happened. Please let me know. I am not happy that the picture was removed by you and him because it was most important key to this information of chief vann house. I do not do "constributes" for wikipedia because I am not paid. I only do for people who seek for education and knowledge. "Uneducated persons are learning to be educated persons when they understand what the world meaning to them."


Joseph Chamberlain[edit]

Thanks for the compliments regarding the detail being added to this article - I hope to eventually include more information on all aspects of Chamberlain's career, right through his Colonial Secretaryship and the Tariff Reform Campaign. The article would look somewhat lopsided without such an expansion.

  • The NLF was founded at Bingley Hall on 31st May 1877, not 31st February, so I am glad that you pointed out the error.
  • I will edit passages surrounding Chamberlain in the shoe business.
  • I shall include the quote you have supplied in the section regarding Chamberlain's attitude to Irish Home Rule.
  • And I shall give a brief synopsis with each edit.

Renamed London Underground Stations/Tube station Images[edit]

Hi. Has the Renamed London Underground Stations article I started been deleted? If so, how come? On a related note, I'm a little confused with images of tube stations taken from the tube map that I have uploaded. I scanned the tube map onto my computer and then selected each station for each tube station article page. At the time I was unsure as to whether the GFDL code was the tag to use but thought that since I had created each image, since I had scanned it, then it would be the best tag. Now User:Sapient has contacted me to say he thinks one of those images Image:Heathrowstns.PNG is not a GNU. I have replied to him telling him what I have told you, plus that I would contact you to see what you think. For the time being I will change the tag for the image I have given you the link to to this {{verifieduse}}. Greaterlondoner

Thanks for your help. I will consult some other admins and for the time being remove all the tube map station images I have uploaded from their respective articles but not delete the actual images as yet. Greaterlondoner
For the time being I'll be using this tab on all the images of stations from the tube map.


That way it gives everyone 30 days to decide what the best option is before it gets deleted (if they can't). Greaterlondoner

RLUS - Whoops, sorry[edit]

Oh, sorry, just seen that the article is listed with a small s for 'Stations' not a capital. My mistake. Question about the station images remains though. Greaterlondoner


Just a quick note of thanks for your work on the Posy Simmonds page - I was half expecting it to be empty or a stub so was pleasantly surprised. Peteashton 01:27, 3 October 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for applying your wiki-skills to my rough and ready NaSTA history! Vanky 18:57, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Workers Playground[edit]

Thanks for the correction, and noticing that this title was wrong elsewhere in the article. I actually Googled it to see if it was "Worker's Playground" or "Workers' Playground" and the hits I got were wrong as well. Opps! ~CS 08:07, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

county town[edit]

I don't suppose you'll remember as it has been a couple of years but when you made this edit do you happen to know where you sourced the list? There is a discussion about the county town of sussex on User talk:Molly Mockford. Jooler 22:19, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Chew Valley Lake[edit]

Hi Rob,

Thanks for sorting the river chew link from the Chew Valley Lake page. As you may have seen I put this up for peer review & then FAC which failed because not enough people commented/supported it (although it did get listed as a good page). As you've obviously got lots of experence (& local interest) is there anything else you think should be done on the page before we put it up for FAC again? Rod 13:25, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Bristol: Red House/Lodge[edit]

Yes, you are right, I got the name wrong for the museum in Bristol, however I now see the whole places of interest section has been removed. I have put a section on the Bristol Talk page asking about this. I think it would be good to be reinstated, but don't want to do it only to have it deleted again!

Hi, thanks for the info-I did'nt know Avon doesn't exist anymore. Well, you live and learn! Cheers, Lion King 23:34, 21 March 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the link to their policy. I wrote up on the page about their archiving policy, you may want to edit it. So what's the best service to use to get better archiving? Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 18:37, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in its not being deleted. Thank you.

Hello and Goodbye[edit]

Hi Rob. Hope you remember me, Greaterlondoner. You were the first person I met properly here on Wikipedia. I thought it best to tell you that I am leaving today and thank you for the kindness you showed me by helping me learn how to edit and use all the many facilities available here. One last thing, could you delete the image at Ickenham tube station as I uploaded it wrongly from a website. Sorry. I know in my time here I made a mess of things, uploading things wrongly when I shouldn't have, and annoying people unnecessarily. Therefore, could you make it so that my userpage and talkpage are somehow blocked from being edited from anyone? I would like them to stay with the messages that have now from me. I hope you have had a very merry christmas with your family and wish you a healthy and prosperous new year. All the best, Greaterlondoner 19:15, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I can't delete the image because it's on commons and I'm not an admin there. You'll just have to let the commons speedy/copyvio procedure take its course. I don't see any grounds under WP:PPOL to protect your user page or user talk page, but I will watch them. --rbrwr± 21:29, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Bristol project & your grade I listed buildings list[edit]

Hi, As you've probably seen the Wikipedia:WikiProject Bristol has been getting busier of late - you could always join? anyway I've linked to your list at User:Rbrwr/Grade I listed buildings in Bristol however some of these have now been created with slightly different names - see Category:Grade I listed buildings in Bristol. May I edit you list to point out what has been done & what is still needed? — Rod talk 21:12, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Sir Richard Hadlee[edit]

Hi. I have edited the article to remove reference to his being knighted while playing, which I think you put there, for the reasons that I give in the article. --Adam Brink 04:29, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Marcus Stewart[edit]

Thanks for that - I've added the reference. Fingers crossed for a good result on Saturday - I can't cope with the playoffs again. Paddy 08:54, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Template:Football kit/temp[edit]

Hi, I just noticed that a template you created, Template:Football kit/temp, is unused and appears to be abandoned. I've marked it as deprecated, meaning it'll be deleted in two weeks' time if nobody objects. If there's a reason to keep it please leave a note at Wikipedia talk:Deprecated and orphaned templates and feel free to remove the {{deprecated}} tag from the template. Thanks.

AfD nomination of Crossrail[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Crossrail. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Crossrail (2nd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:19, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Fanclub[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Fanclub requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. + ThermoNuclear 18:58, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Meeting in Bristol this weekend?[edit]

Hi this is Steve Virgin from Wikimedia UK. I am a fellow Bristolian and we have a Wikimedia Conference in town this weekend.

We are getting some of the Bristol Wikipedians together at the Watershed on Saturday night for a Wiki Meet at around 6.30pm. This is a good opportunity to meet people from the national chapter, the Wikimedia Foundation and chapters around the world. Bristol City Council has kindly offered a bar tab to help proceedings and we would be very keen to see you there.

Please let me know if you are able to come and feel free to invite any other local Wikipedians in Bristol.

Oh, well, thanks for the invitation, and for the clarification. I'm not really much of a Wikipedian these days, though. I'd feel like a gatecrasher. rbrwr± 17:09, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Audio theatre an article to audio dramas[edit]

Please if you have time and you know anything to it (I have seen that you have made edits in the article area which owns relations on it) , please look on the article Audio theatre, somebody placed a erase discussion on it. after we have had a merge discussion.

Orphaned non-free image File:Spaced screenshot 600px.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Spaced screenshot 600px.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Rbrwr,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Proposed deletion of List of life forms[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of life forms has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article is extremely disjointed and little more than a listing of similarly related articles with no clear format nor logical flow. Even if the article were to be cleaned and actually list life forms, the list would be hardly usable. I nominate it for deletion due to the immense scope the title infers, and inability to consolidate a /list of life forms/ into a stand alone article or list. Ncboy2010 (talk) 22:24, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Ncboy2010 (talk) 22:24, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cock sucker[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Cock sucker, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. FunkyCanute (talk) 13:25, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. Well, I only created it as a redirect to Cocksucker, which did exist, after a fashion, at the time. That was eight and a half years ago, though. "Hello, and welcome..." is a slightly strange response to such an ancient edit! I suppose I must have my reasons for thinking it appropriate, but I have no idea what they were or what the context was. --rbrwr± 19:21, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

File:WoT panhandle.png missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 09:13, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
