Hogwarts Express FAC[edit]

FYI, Sarastro left some comments today on the Hogwarts Express (Universal Orlando Resort) FA review here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Hogwarts Express (Universal Orlando Resort)/archive2. In short, he wanted the Screamscape.com info addressed, the duplicate links removed, and a final word from you and one other user before the article gets promoted. Since Dom497 has vanished, I decided to take charge and guide the review the rest of the way. I deleted the Screamscape.com info from the article entirely (I believe you brought up that issue, originally) and I removed all of the duplicate links that I could see. In regards to the last item, you were pinged several times by multiple users on the FA review page, which means you are probably already aware that we would like your final input, but I'm leaving this message on your talk page also in order to perform due diligence. If you leave no comments on the FA review, we will assume that you are no longer interested in participating in it. Thank you. Jackdude101 talk cont 21:03, 23 February 2018 (UTC) Update: Dom497 is back now (he was on vacation, apparently). I also forgot to specify earlier that we would like you to comment in the coordinator notes section at the bottom of the FA review page. We just need you to officially declare whether you support, oppose, or that you neither support nor oppose this nomination. Jackdude101 talk cont 13:24, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Jackdude101, hopefully replied in Special:Diff/827711035/827724980. Please give me a heads up if these are any further grammatical mistakes, or anything could do with refining/extra diffs—it has ended up being quite long. —Sladen (talk) 10:28, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Are you happy with the current state of the article? Can I ping all the reviewers to take another look at the article?--Dom497 (talk) 14:00, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
@Dom497: If you want to continue the review, you should withdraw your most recent message to Sarastro where you requested that the review be closed. Also, with the consensus of both of you and Sladen, I am willing to do a top-to-bottom copy edit of the article to remove any possibility of MOS:OUTUNIVERSE violations. Sladen, that is the only sticking point as far as you are concerned, correct? Jackdude101 talk cont 15:37, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jackdude101: My request still holds given all this work that is happening. I honestly think all this work is outside of what the nomination process should be (at this point, most of the article has been rewritten in a sense), but I'm just chugging along since Sladen seemed to have a revelation and wants to see this nomination pass.--Dom497 (talk) 17:50, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
@Dom497: Sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought when you said you wanted the review closed you meant that you wanted it archived (so that the review could start from scratch after two weeks). On a related note, I did a supplemental image review of the three new images that were recently added and gave them my stamp of approval. Jackdude101 talk cont 18:00, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Special:Diff/829740187 appears to have stricken the withdrawl request. Hopefully the useful advice offered in Special:Diff/828809751 about detecting reliability of sources can be reflected upon. Jackdude101, yes of course, copy-editing from a wider selection of editors is generally beneficial. —Sladen (talk) 08:13, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Wrong links[edit]

Hi Sladen. In your addition to the Roadster/Falcon picture licensing conditions,[1] you pointed to two URLs which do not work. Please update them. — JFG talk 10:22, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Following this edit, I decided to take my kids on one of the Thames Clippers from North Greenwich to Westminster, and they loved it. Since they went free, and I could just clock in with my Oyster Card, I can do this again easily if the weather's nice. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 11:35, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
