London Gatwick AirportEdit

Hi, The template "London Gatwick Airport year" used in the Categories "Category:XXXX at London Gatwick Airport" currently puts its categories in "Category:Transport in London in XXXX" or "Category:XXXX in London". Is it possible this could be removed from the template as the airport is not actually 'in' London, it is in West Sussex where the template also adds its categories? This would be in line with how the other airports that serve London are treated in Commons. I ask you to make this change as I believe you are responsible for creating this template, if not can you tell me where to ask to implement this change? Example of categories affected: Category:2015 in London Category:Transport in London in 2014. Oxyman (talk) 11:12, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the modification, best Oxyman (talk) 17:23, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Airline Info on CategoriesEdit

Hello. I liked the idea of you adding the details of each aircraft registration, so I have added this to other aircraft which have not been done, Only change is that the months are included for each year the aircraft moves to a new operator. Do you think we should add anything else? I added a note for a special colour scheme note for G-EZUI if that's a good idea? --MKY661 (talk) 00:38, 18 February 2016 (UTC):

Looks good to me. Sufficient level of detail. Glad to see someone else working on thisArdfern (talk) 10:38, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

Apollo Aviation Group / GECASEdit

Dear Ardfern, I'm writing regarding your correction of pages Category:B-5080 (aircraft), UR-PSN (aircraft) & TC-SUB (aircraft). I have noted that you added into "Template:Cat see also" 2 categories of aircrafts - N614LS (aircraft) & N310CQ (aircraft). As far as we can see from aircraft story it had this registration numbers during the period of storage in Apollo Aviation Group and GECAS agencies. These periods lasted couple of months only. And I really doubt that the photos of these aircrafts with these registration numbers exist and will appear at Wiki Commons. Was it make sense to add it into "Template:Cat see also"? --Vasyatka1 (talk) 13:19, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

  • To leave them out would render the information inaccurate and therefore useless and leave gaps in the timeline. In many cases there are indeed photos of aircraft while in ownership of lessors or in storage.Ardfern (talk) 14:33, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Delete vs. renameEdit

Concerning your recent edits akin to this, two things:

  1. The category names you created are certainly better, being more clear and matching other such names of categories about other types of vehicles (I didn’t do that back when I worked in these categories to avoid too changing both scope and name of each category — but now it’s certainly later enough to do so.)
  2. However, why not renaming/moving these misnamed categories instead of deleting them? It would minimize file editing (one edit on each filepage, instead of two) and keep the history of each category.

(Also: this page needs archiving. Badly.) -- Tuválkin 10:42, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Cessna or otherEdit

Hello Ardfern. This edit suggests no Cessna is shown in the picture. If not, can you tell me what we do see there? Regards, Apdency (talk) 09:26, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Fixed. It would have been more constructive to have rectified the mistake rather than simply exercising sarcasm. Ardfern (talk) 09:39, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
    • Thanks for fixing. But my question was genuine; as a layman, I really didn't know. No sarcasm was intended therefore. Apdency (talk) 09:58, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Flickreview train filesEdit

Under your name (PK-LMN) a load of train files are being wrongly loaded into Category:Aviation files (check needed). Please cease immediately and revert all the files. Ardfern (talk) 18:38, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Regarding Brendan FraserEdit


Thank you for your work on Is it possible that we use a more flattering image such as this?

Or How could we go about doing that.

    • This cannot be considered in isolation from the two other categories within Category:National Museum of Ireland. It is clearly a branch of that institution which should remain to be clear and allow files of each to be clearly delineated. Propose no change. Ardfern (talk) 21:13, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
