re: death listings[edit]

Hi, thanks for putting in so much terrific time into updating the death lists in Wikipedia. But please start being more discriminating in your choices to place on the pages of individual dates. This idea is to list the more siginficant names on the inidividial date pages - not all possible names. You may want to consider going to Recent deaths to add all the names you've been adding - and reserving the more historically important names to the individual dates.

food for thought - and welcome to wikipedia! Kingturtle 20:59, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. BTW please respond to my comment on User talk:Kingturtle. I'm not sure if it's a good idea to remove people that already have articles. I think we should avoid considering some fields or nationals or decades historically less important. --05 21:04, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Your questions are very useful, actually. I am currently trying to track down if anyone here has ever written out exactly what the protocol is for what should and shouldn't be posted in the date-pages. I haven't discovered such a document just yet, but in the meantime, consider this: An article about a particular day, for example February 14, is not meant to be a complete compendium or complete list. It is a summary of the most and more important events of that day.

Here are some other resources on wikipedia that may be of current or future use to you:

Ok. I'm not sure though, if the reasoning for the inclusion of events can be applied to deaths (or birth listings), especially as their date of death is generally not self-determined. In general, it might be preferable to list names without articles mainly on recent deaths, but once an article is written, it's a bit arbitrary to measure a sportsperson or a national politician of some country, both inactive for years, against an artist or scientist.
Now that everything has already been removed, there isn't actually much of a point of me commenting on it .. I conclude that the day pages are unlikely to get expanded. --05 21:46, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Okay, so I've found out that there definitely is not yet written any kind of protocol regarding our debate - however, i have found the appropriate place to have this dialog. So i've started a new thread at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Days of the Year. Please bring your discussion there, and we can get input from other people. Kingturtle 06:49, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

List of funiculars in Switzerland (your original work)[edit]

Hello! I'm afraid to say that the length column (at the least, I didn't check other columns) in this list was not imported correctly from the German page/list. The values in the table for length are incorrect in several/many cases. Not sure if you're still around & editing, but there you have it. It's too big a fix for me to take on at this time; I wanted to let you know in case you were interested in following up. JGray (talk) 05:32, 21 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
