Incomplete DYK nomination

  Hello! Your submission of Template:Did you know nominations/Staten Island Tunnel at the Did You Know nominations page is not complete; see step 3 of the nomination procedure. If you do not want to continue with the nomination, tag the nomination page with {{db-g7}}, or ask a DYK admin. Thank you. DYKHousekeepingBot (talk) 01:14, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

About the TfD for the 4 service template...

@Epicgenius: Remember saying this at the TfD mentioned in the title?

If the templates are kept, then they must be frequently edited and maintained, since subway route designations change every couple of years.

Well, that's a great idea for a WikiProject. I am NOT saying you have to start the WikiProject, just that what you said could be a WikiProject. PhilrocMy contribs 23:48, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

@Philroc: That would be a good suggestion, but it can be maintained as a WikiProject New York City Public Transportation task force instead. I'll figure it out some time (preferably before the end of the summer). Epic Genius (talk) 00:52, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
@Epicgenius: Genius idea. (ha-ha, get it?) PhilrocMy contribs 00:57, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
@Philroc: I get it. LMAO. ;-) Epic Genius (talk) 01:01, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

List of metro systems

Hi Epicgenius! As one of the resident NYC Subway experts, could you please assess this change to the List of metro systems, please?... I vaguely recall a previous discussion about this, but don't recall the details. Thanks! --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:51, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

@IJBall: I guess the IP editor is correct, in that it's a brand-new station (albeit a single line's platform). However, South Ferry/Whitehall Street is not necessarily the newest station complex of multiple lines' stations, which itself would not be worthy of inclusion. So, I guess it could be kept, because the 63rd Street Connector is technically not the newest piece of line in the system. Epic Genius (talk) 02:19, 10 July 2015 (UTC)


I have not made an edit to Sport Relief. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:42, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

You may be sharing an IP address, so someone before you may have made that edit, though. Epic Genius (talk) 02:20, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

List of tallest buildings in Brooklyn

Epicgenius, I see that you have contributed regularly to List of tallest buildings in New York City, and I was wondering if you could informally review and edit List of tallest buildings in Brooklyn as you see fit. I've been working on this list for quite some time, and finally decided to publish it today. It still needs a bit of work, and perhaps some additional sources and information. Any assistance you could provide would be of the greatest help! -- West Virginian (talk) 01:18, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

@West Virginian: Sure, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Give me a few days or so, and I will look the new "List of tallest buildings in Brooklyn" article over. Epic Genius (talk) 01:45, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
@Epicgenius:, I appreciate it! Thanks for your attention to this! -- West Virginian (talk) 02:08, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Flushing Chinatown

Hi there, Epicgenius. Are you by any chance able to procure and upload some representative images of Flushing Chinatown, say at the intersection of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue? I think that you yourself may have commented that this Chinatown is woefully underimaged on Wikipedia, simply due to a bizarre lack of such images. Best, Castncoot (talk) 03:05, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

@Castncoot: Sure, I have some pictures. I'll upload them soon (though maybe not this week in particular, because I am busy IRL). Epic Genius (talk) 00:52, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
OK, thank you. Castncoot (talk) 04:33, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
No rush, but once you upload these if you could please note here how you've indexed them to search, that would be appreciated. Thanks again! Best, Castncoot (talk) 11:52, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Beckenham Junction tube station

A tag has been placed on Beckenham Junction tube station, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from an implausible typo, or other unlikely search term.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you believe that there is a reason to keep the redirect, you can request that administrators wait a while before deleting it. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Redrose64 (talk) 16:45, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Redrose64, may I ask why it was deleted? It definitely sounds like a plausible redirect, considering the Bakerloo line might be extended there. Epic Genius (talk) 18:14, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
"Might be" is not at all the same as "definitely will be". There have been lots of plans for a southward extension of the Bakerloo line, going back several decades, but as yet, not one of them has reached a stage where construction can begin. There isn't even any money to build a line with. Since at least four different locations have been suggested as the eventual terminus, the possibility of it being Beckenham Junction for certain is, at this moment, very remote, and a long way from plausible. Please see also WP:CRYSTAL. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:45, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Per WP:CRYSTAL, we can also remove the "future services" s-line, can't we? Since we don't know if the line is even going to be extended at all (construction hasn't started yet), I don't think we should put an s-line either, since we don't know if Burgess Park tube station would ever be constructed.

Thank you for your help

Hi Epicgenius, I wanted to thank you for adding the project managers to the info box on one world trade. I am fairly new to wiki editing and couldn't figure out how to add to the sidebar. I don't mean to be a pain but I was wondering if you could change the title from "other_designers" to other consultants, or other management, and if that won't work then other contractors. Hill Intl and Louis Berger were hired to over see, manage and consult the project, but did not design the layout. Thanks again!

You're welcome. Unfortunately, I can't change the name of the parameter, but I can probably switch the parameters up, see which one works best. Epic Genius (talk) 20:25, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much! For future references, what're the steps to editing/adding an info box? It does not see nearly as simple as most of the editing that I have done. Keelsh01 (talk) 20:46, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

@Keelsh01: It is the same is adding any template, just add the name of the infobox and the relevant parameters, like {{infobox whatever |parameter1= |parameter2= |parameter3=... }} (that's not a real infobox, by the way). Or, you can go to the documentation of the infobox (like Template:Infobox building#Usage). It should have a list of parameters under the "Usage" section. Copy the code under it, like {{Infobox building | name = | native_name = | native_name_lang = ... }} If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Epic Genius (talk) 20:18, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
thank you!! Keelsh01 (talk) 12:30, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
