Lybagh edit

Perhaps someone who knows the mountain infobox better than I could fill in more of the missing details in this new article I created. ww2censor (talk) 10:39, 9 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Peer review edit

I've nominated the Mount Edziza volcanic complex article for a peer review; comments can be left here. Volcanoguy 04:51, 28 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Still looking for feedback on this peer review. Volcanoguy 17:11, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply] site contents moved to edit

The previously established contents at has been moved to I have updated {{cite peakfinder}} to use the new URL and no other changes are needed for existing uses of the template. We should probably rename the template to perhaps {{cite crdb}} to prevent confusion with the "new" site. I'm also working on the list of articles that are directly using, many of which are using a very old URL form that includes "peakfinder.asp?PeakName=", which when followed, gave a site error. At this point, I haven't seen any information as to why the site contents were moved. seems to have been taken over by someone in Europe, which has content unrelated to RedWolf (talk) 20:51, 5 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have moved {{cite peakfinder}} to {{cite crdb}}. RedWolf (talk) 20:40, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding Quandary Peak to List of Mountain Peaks of North America edit

Looking at adding Quandary Peak to the List of mountain peaks of North America List.

There is a comment from 2009 on the talk page that this omission is inaccurate.

When I went to make an edit of the page (WP:BB) I noticed a comment, "Please discuss any proposed changes to this table at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mountains several days before changes may be made."

Is it fine to make this edit (given citations)?

Problems with List of Wainwrights edit

This large list compiled from an external database by a now-inactive editor needs attention. See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject_Lancashire and Cumbria#Problems with List of Wainwrights if you are interested. Thanks in advance for any help! PamD 21:35, 12 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Annapurna Massif: mountain or mountain range? edit

The redirect Annapurna Massif was retargetted from Annapurna (mountain range) to Anapurna, by @Lizthegrey: with the edit summary "massif = the principal peak itself, not the range"; I reverted it, on the basis that the article on the range starts "Annapurna is a massif ..." while the article on the mountain starts "Annapurna is a mountain ...".

But looking at Massif, I see that Annapurna is listed, rather than Annapurna (mountain range).

So, which is the massif, and thus where should Annapurna Massif redirect to?

Some expert in mountain nomenclature might want to comment or sort it out. I'm out of my depth - I know more about Wainwright's outlying fells. PamD 18:15, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hah yeah that threw me because the Massif article lede says "In mountaineering literature, a massif is frequently used to denote the main mass of an individual mountain". I think I might actually have been wrong here, and Massif should list Annapurna (mountain range) and my redirect change should be undone. lizthegrey (talk) 18:47, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There is the Annapurna mountain range which consists of 30 mountains/peaks above 6,000 m including Annapurna I (aka Annapurna), II, III, IV. Normally, massif is used to denote the entire mass of a single mountain which is comprised of multiple peaks. However, the entire Annapurna mountain range is currently described as a massif, which is not the normal usage of massif, at least when I have seen it used. I think describing the entire mountain range as one massif is incorrect or at a minimum leads to confusion but redirecting Annapurna Massif to Annapurna could also be considered incorrect since Annapurna II, III and IV are classified as separate peaks.

Showing page titles for Wikidata coordinates on OpenStreetMap edit

Recently, I have begun to add the coordinates column to the list of mountains given on mountain range pages along with using {{GeoGroup}} to display a map of all the listed mountains on OpenStreetMap. Rather than copy the coordinates from each article page, I have instead used {{Wikidata}} to extract the coordinates from Wikidata. However, I ran into an issue when viewing the OpenStreetMap page. On the page's left hand side, it displays a list of links that can be clicked to highlight that particular coordinate on the map. The problem is that it would display an ordinal number as the the coordinate's title rather than the actual mountain/peak name. Unfortunately, {{Wikidata}} currently has no way to pass the title. Also, this template is actually a wrapper for Module:Wd and changes would have to be made to this LUA module. I posted the issue on Module talk:Wd but no one appears to be willing (although perhaps more likely that anyone knowledgeable to make the changes has not noticed the request) to add title support to the module. I only have beginner knowledge of LUA so am reluctant to modify the module. So, I have created Module:Titled_coords and its wrapper template {{Titled_coords}} to add the title to coordinates from Wikidata. I have so far updated Misty Range and Bow Range to use the new template. RedWolf (talk) 22:29, 20 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
