Template : Brighton Main LineEdit

Could you kindly clear up the "kink" halfway down the template where Jolly Sailor station is.

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 13:09, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

@Xenophon Philosopher: You refer, I presume, to Template:Brighton Main Line. This uses {{routemap}} and some years ago I stated that I would not maintain RDTs which use that template, so the breakage is not mine. All I can do is revert the most recent edits, prior to which it seems to look OK. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 13:32, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
@Xenophon Philosopher: I've fixed it. Mjroots (talk) 17:50, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Many thanks for your help in this matter.

Template : Aberystwyth and Welsh Coast RailwayEdit

Could I seek your opinion on the validity of station name edits on Template:Aberystwyth and Welsh Coast Railway made by @NT79 in June 2020, as no-one has seen fit to make these type of amendments, including highly respected editors such as your good self, in past years. Do you think the changes made should be reverted?

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 21:29, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

@Xenophon Philosopher: As ever, please provide a link to the page that you are referring to, ideally with diffs where appropriate. I neither have the time, nor am in the mood, to go hunting for whatever it is you are currently having difficulties with. Unless you know the identity of the six juveniles who went for me on three separate occasions this evening. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:02, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
My apologies, the required link has been added to my original query, as requested. I was unaware that you had been targeted by a group of six juveniles. I trust that the police will be successful in tracing these miscreants.
Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 00:05, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Did you bring up the matter at the template's talk page (no), at the talk page of WT79 (talk · contribs) (no) or at an appropriate WikiProject talk page (also, no)? Am I the primary editor of the template? Again, no - all I ever did there was this which hardly puts me in the number 1 position for explaining somebody else's edits. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:12, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Take care, Redrose. I know it’s awkward for me to say this but I hope for the best for you. At times like this, crime rate is high. We can get through this VincentLUFan (talk) (Kenton!) 16:34, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Can I ask therefore one final question. Is the the policy for Wikipedia to use the final used station name in articles when earlier station names have been carried?

RFCs on Korean Television ShowEdit

Okay. Are you saying, first, that the bot is looking at the sentence immediately after the RFC tag as the topic sentence to publicize? If so, okay. Second, are you saying that starting two RFCs in the same edit causes some sort of confusion? If so, I will remember to avoid it. Robert McClenon (talk) 21:06, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

@Robert McClenon: As shown at WP:RFCBRIEF, Legobot will copy the markup of your statement (from the end of the {{rfc}} tag through the first timestamp) to the list of active RfCs. That is what it did here - notice that only one of your two RfCs was copied, and that it lacked the question. Second, see this edit - Legobot set the two |rfcid= to identical values. They must be unique, since not only are they used as the anchor for inward links, they are also used by Legobot in its private data tables that list current RfCs. If two have the same rfcid value, only one of them can be monitored by Legobot. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:57, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Question: "Normal order of cat[egorie]s?"Edit

Greetings and felicitations. In the comment for your reversion of my edit to the article "Spean Bridge railway station" you wrote in part "restore normal order of cats". The only rule with which I am familiar is to place the primary category—the one with a space—at the top of the list. E.g., [[Category:World War II| ]] for World War II. I was informed years ago of a system for ordering film and television, but have not seen much of it recently. However, under this impetus I just dug it out: Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Categorization. But there does not seem to be a similar rule for WikiProject Television.

Anyway, what is the "normal order" of categories? The Manual of Style does not seem to mention this. (While per your request I've added this page to my watch list, a ping or the equivalent mention of my username is a much better guarantee of getting my attention.) —DocWatson42 (talk) 06:46, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

@DocWatson42: I didn't revert you, not entirely - if I had, the images would have moved back to their previous positions, and the shortdesc might also have been lost. Anyway, it's a question of relevance (Normally the most essential, significant categories appear first.), of defining characteristics. What is it? A railway station. Where is it? Highland (council area). Who owned/operates it, when did it open? These are all more relevant than the fact that it is a Category C listed building or that it was designed by James Miller. Some years ago, I worked through a large number of railway station articles that other people had worked upon to see what the favoured order is, and broadly speaking, I came up with User:Redrose64#Railway Stations (although I need to update that redlink, and check some of the others). Any cat that is not covered by that table would be placed after those. At Wikipedia talk:Categorization/Archive 16#Proposing a change to the WP:CATDEF wording, look for the phrase "dog monuments" to see how irrelevant some cats can be, and how alphabetical ordering can boost their prominence above more significant cats. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:51, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks!Edit

I honestly didn't know about those birth and death templates! Really appreciate your advise, I'll have to note this for any articles in create for the WiR project in future. - Chris.sherlock (talk) 10:49, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Chris.sherlock: They are linked from the navboxes at the bottom of the various template doc pages, although you may need to expand the navbox sections. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 10:56, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Huh... never noticed that before. Thanks once again! - Chris.sherlock (talk) 11:07, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Appeal for helpEdit

Profound greetings I just want you to edit template wikiproject football and extend it for Greece as well as Greek task force of association football is created and it requires extension of Greek lag and the text on that template.

SHISHIR DUA 12:52, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

@SHISHIR DUA: First, you need to make your proposal at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football and gain consensus there - this will take a minimum of one week, probably longer. Once that has been achieved, make a WP:TPER request at Template talk:WikiProject Football, linking to the consensus discussion. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 07:51, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

High Speed NorthEdit

Hi, we met a couple of years ago at a meetup in The Four Candles. I am seeking help with correcting what I think is a serious error. The Article 'Northern Powerhouse Rail' was re-named 'High Speed North' (Moved? - I don't understand the terminology). See Talk:High Speed North#Re-naming mistake?. I have tried to do what I can, but have not succeeded in getting a response either on the Talk page or from a talk message to User talk:Ejosm#Possible mistake in renaming 'Northern Powerhouse Rail' 'High Speed North'?. I would be most grateful if you would review the evidence that I have provided and, if you agree, advise me as to how to put things right.--TedColes (talk) 10:35, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Replied at Talk:Northern Powerhouse Rail#Re-naming mistake?. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:25, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

RevertEdit

Regarding your revert of my addition of a Short Description on London Underground C69 and C77 Stock, I did read the article and still don't see what is wrong with my SD. But if you thought it could have been improved, why did you not do so in the spirit of collaboration instead of reverting with a snarky edit summary. MB 22:27, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

MB, while you may mean "passenger car" as rolling stock, to most people it means an automobile. Even if you meant it as rolling stock, a car is a single carriage of the unit, not the unit itself - it would be like saying that a house is a type of kitchen. -mattbuck (Talk) 08:13, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
Mattbuck, We have rolling stock that says it means anything that rolls - engine, freight cars, cabooses, etc. Yes, I meant a passenger coach, whose article is at passenger car (rail). So since that is the title of the article, and, in the context of the "Underground", it should be clear this is about a train car and not a automobile. I stand by my SD as not "rubbish" and not "a guess" by someone who did not read the article. Another editor has added a SD which just says "vehicle", which is fine also for the purposes of a SD. MB 14:48, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
It's not about a car/coach/carriage/vehicle. It's about a group of coach designs collectively known as the C Stock. There are C69 driving motors, C69 trailers, C77 driving motors and C77 trailers. One driving motor and one trailer (usually both C69 or both C77, but not necessarily) were semi-permanently coupled into pairs, known as "units", having a driving cab at one end. A train could be formed of either two or three units (which need not have been all C69 or all C77), having a driving cab at both ends. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:10, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
The lead of rolling stock may be of interest, then. It says "The term rolling stock in the rail transport industry refers to railway vehicles...". If the short descriptions are going to reflect reality as you and reliable sources understand it, the leads of relevant articles need to reflect that reality. In any event, the current local short description appears to be a far sight better than the Wikidata one that was being shown before. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:41, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Regarding my editEdit

You recently removed my edit on the named Class 323.

I can confirm it is notable as it so far the only class 323 to have ever been named as far as Information on named class 323s goes.

I have a photo of 323241 baring the names I listed and I have permission to from the photo owner to upload the photo as long as they are credited which I would credit them, would this be allowed on Wikiapeda and would be be acceptable as evidence?

Also I’m sorry for what I put being contradictory, I should have checked what I wrote before publishing it.

For the moment I have now asked WMT about this on Twitter, if they confirm that 323241 carries the names I added would this be acceptable as evidence? Maurice Oly (talk) 11:18, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Please find a third-party reliable source, in accordance with the policy on verifiability. Photos and tweets are not sufficient. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:44, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Sorry about the sourceEdit

Hey I just want to say I’m really sorry about having to use twitter as a source on the class 323 page but sadly that’s all there is.

Sadly West Midlands Trains did not do a press event for the naming of 323241, it was only done at soho TMD and by depo staff not head office staff.

I asked West midlands trains on twitter to confirm it but sadly somebody else confirmed it before WMT did.

Sadly due to the naming ceremony being held at soho TMD no members of the press were aware of the event, I only found out about the event via a facebook group of which some WMT train crew who attended the event are a part of.

I hate using twitter as a source as I know it can be unreliable but sadly that’s the best source there will be, well as well as the photo I uploaded.

Again I’m really sorry for using Twitter but as I’ve said it’s all there will ever be source wise.

Many Thanks Maurice Oly. Maurice Oly (talk) 23:14, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Sorry I ment West Midlands railway as the TOC not the brand west midlands trains which is used my West midland Railway my bad. Maurice Oly (talk) 23:19, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Like Twitter, Facebook is not appropriate. Try the railway press, such as Modern Railways, Rail, and The Railway Magazine - these are generally considered reliable. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:03, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi Redrose64: The appropriate category for the 2020 Pinatar Cup article is Category:March 2020 sports events in Spain (part of a tree) not Category:2020 sports events in Spain. Hugo999 (talk) 22:55, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Request to use part of a photoEdit

I needed part of a photo for an article and it shows you are the one who created it. I just discovered this photo and realize while the middle section is not ideal, it's better than the current photo of St. John's Lutheran Church (Salisbury, North Carolina).

Do you know who could make this happen?— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 20:02, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@Vchimpanzee: My part in creating File:Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina crop.jpg was, as shown in the summary on the file description page, limited to cropping down an existing image - File:Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina.jpg. You could crop down File:SalisburyNCMontageUpdated.jpg, but since it's a montage of several component images, it would be better to ask its uploader, Kharris0317 (talk · contribs), where to find the component you wish to use solo. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:55, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. I don't know how to crop but you apparently do.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 16:13, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
There are various utilities. I use one called ZoomBrowser EX which came with my Canon camera, but you can use Adobe Photoshop, IrfanView, Microsoft Office Picture Manager, or even Microsoft Paint. With most of them, you load an image, select the crop (or trim) tool, drag the edges about, click an "OK" (or "Confirm") button, then save it. Make sure that you save it with a new name so as not to damage the original, just in case the new version was unsuitable and needs to be redone. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:59, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Someone did show me how to use Paint for screenshots when I was asking questions on WP:VPT or the reference desk. And I have used something similar with NewsBank and newspapers.com.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:54, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Okay, I will need that person to help me again and during COVID-19 that's unlikely.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:58, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Pardon me for joining in. The best software by far for simple cropping and rescaling is Irfanview (mentioned above). I've used it for years for mostly just those two simple tasks. If you want help with a specific image, happy to help/instruct. Bazza (talk) 08:44, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

Yes. I have a job, and unlike a lot of people in this country, I have not been sent home to mooch around for weeks on end. Since March, I've done extra time covering for people who have stayed at home; and that will include tomorrow. My taxes pay for their furlough. No, I won't participate, my interest was solely on getting the bad entry in the RfC listings fixed, and this fix to a badly-constructed list. I do wish people would read the directions. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:57, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for bothering. I am. Doing 70+ hours a week myself, plus some 20 hours of commute (transport is difficult these days). I think I understand the pain somewhat. Hopefully we shall meet again on nicer grounds someday. Thanks for the help.   I was just impatient about low participation (which partly is because the RfC was "malformed", unfortunately). As for instructions... I think only the most work-free people has the time to read the thousands of pages of instruction WP has these days. I am not one of them.

Crewe to Shrewsbury RailwayEdit

Hi RedRose64

I saw you reverted my edit on the article of Crewe and Shrewsbury Railway but called it constructive. May I just ask why as the line still sees use and isn't a former railway as the article mentioned "was a railway that connected Crewe to Shrewsbury". I understand the line isn't under that name anymore but it's still in use aside from the branch lines.

I'm just curious why its constructive but I've reverted to a more constructive lead. If you can fill me in on what is unconstructive about it. I'd appreciate it.

Thank you kindly

A dogEdit

Hi Redrose...I was about to create an article titled "Gerberian Shepsky" but I can't....can you help. It has a redirect to cross-breeds but I think it can have its own page. Whispyhistory (talk) 19:14, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

It was redirected following (but not as a consequence of) this AfD. You could ask Cunard (talk · contribs), who redirected it, or just WP:BEBOLD - it's not protected. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:23, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
I'd like to be bold but I don't know how...maybe Philafrenzy or Edwardx could kindly stub and I'll expand. One of them kindly forwarded some scientific evidence on dog eye muscles. Whispyhistory (talk) 19:40, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
First follow the link Gerberian Shepsky, this takes you to a point part-way down List of dog crossbreeds. Go to the top, and below the page title and the familiar text "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" is a line reading "(Redirected from Gerberian Shepsky)". Click that link, and you reach the redirect itself. Either edit that directly, or click its history tab and select an old version to view. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:09, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Track layoutsEdit

If track layouts for New York Subway stations can exist on their respective pages, why should London Underground stations not have the same thing on their pages? — Preceding unsigned comment added by DragonRider1563 (talkcontribs) 09:13, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

@DragonRider1563: One, the London Underground is not in New York. Two, it was agreed some time ago that track layout diagrams should not be included in the articles for UK stations. Three, your repeated re-adding without seeking consensus is becoming disruptive. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:54, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Missing cite in NBR 224 and 420 ClassesEdit

You have added a short reference to "Ellis 1959" but no such source is listed in bibliography. Can you please add? Also, suggest installing a script to highlight such errors in the future. All you need to do is copy and paste importScript('User:Svick/HarvErrors.js'); // Backlink: [[User:Svick/HarvErrors.js]] to your common.js page. Thanks, Renata (talk) 07:54, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

Images in correct sectionsEdit

Saw your mention on the Networker article; apologies for unintentionally causing accessibility issues with the replacement of images. However, I don’t seem to understand how the new images I am putting in are ending up at the bottom of the previous section, as I am pasting the new images in the exact location of the ones I am replacing. When doing this on PC, the replacement images appear in the correct place they should be whereas on mobile, they aren’t like this at all (for me anyway). Is there anything I can do about this in the future as I use PC to edit images on articles and if the placement of them isn’t different when it actually is, I don’t see much I can do about it?

Thanks, hope this makes sense. --SavageKieran (talk) 16:21, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

What is PC - personal computer, pending changes, or something else? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:23, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
I mean my personal computer by this. --SavageKieran (talk) 20:31, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
I would suggest that instead of editing the whole article, you edit only the section concerned - use the [edit] link that appears to the right of the heading text. When doing so, you take care not to put anything above the section heading - that's the line that looks like this:
=== Class 166 ===
In a section, the order should normally be: heading; {{main}} (if relevant, as with Networker (train)#Class 166); image; text. Use a single newline between each of those elements. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:59, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
Appreciate that, thanks. I will aim to do this in the future, apologies for any inconvenience in my edits. --SavageKieran (talk) 00:09, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

October?!Edit

Hi - okay that's really weird. In making the most recent edit on London Underground, all I did was change the month from February to October. Why did it change to "US"?! The tone is a bit accusatory for something that ... I suspect the visual editor changed in the process. Obviously London isn't in America, I'm not an idiot. Turini2 (talk) 09:12, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

The "US" appears to have been added by the Visual Editor. SUM1 added "autovalue: US" to {{As of}}'s Visual Editor Template Data code section in this edit on 10 March 2020 (or March 10, 2020, for those of us on the wrong side of the pond).

Hey Redrose,

I’m new to Wikipedia but I saw that you closed another RFC as well. Could you close the RFC on the page Arameans as well? There has already been done a request Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Requests_for_closure#Talk:Arameans#RFC_on_purpose_of_this_article

Kind regards and thanks in advance! Velonici (talk) 05:06, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

When you wrote I saw that you closed another RFC as well, which RfC are you referring to?

You are false. The topic is clearly a RfC matter because there are dispute if Anez is an interim president. --Panam2014 (talk) 07:51, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

@Panam2014: What dispute? You have made a post which at best reads like a general question that would be better off at WP:RD/H, and at worst is mere chitterchat that is forbidden by WP:NOTFORUM. If it is a genuine question about improving the article, you could have phrased it better. If a dispute is involved, diffs should be provided, and all parties informed. You should also consider alternative methods of resolution before reaching for the {{rfc}} tag. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:18, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
It is not a forum. The answer is necessary for having a solution for infobox, article content and the article President of Bolivia. --Panam2014 (talk) 10:02, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

1. NOTFORUM is not a part of the items:

  • Help needed
  • Deletion processes
  • Did You Know suggestions
  • Featured Article/List/Topic discussions
  • candidates, Featured topic candidates, Featured topic removal candidates or Today's featured article/requests
  • Good Article/Topic discussions
  • Merge proposals
  • Split proposals
  • Peer review
  • Renaming categories
  • Renaming pages

2.My answer is not a forum answer. --Panam2014 (talk) 10:04, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

I never said that NOTFORUM was one of those items (and I should know, because I wrote the list at WP:RFCNOT); it includes those discussion areas that WP:RFC is often misapplied to, and is not an exhaustive list - we deliberately avoided listing every possible minor misuse. WP:NOTFORUM is on a different page, and part of the specific entry reads:
Please try to stay on the task of creating an encyclopedia. ... In addition, bear in mind that article talk pages exist solely to discuss how to improve articles; they are not for general discussion about the subject of the article, nor are they a help desk for obtaining instructions or technical assistance. ... If you wish to ask a specific question on a topic, Wikipedia has a Reference desk; questions should be asked there rather than on talk pages.
RfC is not intended as a first-step process. WP:RFCBEFORE says:
Before using the RfC process to get opinions from outside editors, it's often faster and more effective to thoroughly discuss the matter with any other parties on the related talk page. Editors are normally expected to make a reasonable attempt at working out their disputes before seeking help from others. If you are able to come to a consensus or have your questions answered through discussion with other editors, then there is no need to start an RfC.
So, your post being "Hi Is Jeanine Áñez constitutionaly and officially an interim or a full-term president?", I find this hard to take as anything other than a request for information. Are you essentially asking the question "who is the president of Bolivia?" - if so, send it to WP:RD/H. If you are starting a discussion about the content of the article, make that clear and don't jump straight to RfC until and unless the discussion becomes unresolvable. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:13, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Derivative work on sport current eventsEdit

Hi. There is a wishlist at noWP for more work that can be created via File:Current event template.svg and sports pictograms. Are you the right person to make those? The wishes are for Nordic combined, Cross-country skiing, Alpine skiing and futsal. I can see that you made the file File:Speed skating current event.svg. Thanks! --- Løken (talk) 15:03, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

@Løken: What is noWP and where is this wishlist? As advised when you were posting here, if you wish to draw my attention to a page, it's always best to link it. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:20, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi again. Sorry for that. noWP is the norwegian Wikipedia. It is a user thats wants more icons for use in Mal:Ikon (wich is used for Infoboks sportsliga). The discussion is here. Thank you. --- Løken (talk) 23:42, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
