Green men[edit]

Hi! I see you created this article. Please add some images to it soon, since it's not very useful without them. Articles are good for showcasing the best, most interesting and most informative images of a category. Also take advantage of the ability to write captions for them. Thanks, pfctdayelise (translate?) 14:41, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

That's fine. It's still a small category so an article is not really needed. In future if you make an article or category by mistake, you can tag it for speedy deletion by writing:
{{db|Created by mistake, content at X. ~~~~}}
where "X" is whatever you actually intended to create (just so administrators know what you're doing). cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 13:02, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Category:Donkey rides[edit]

  1. all donkeys should be in Equus asinus or a subcat of it - therefore if you delete a the cat "donkey rides", put in another donkey category
  2. there is absolutely no need of a cat for the donkey rides on the british beach als long as there is no category for all people riding donkeys
  3. if you are on the british beach the name "donkey rides" may be exact enought to describe donkey rides on the british beach - in wikipedia this category has to be named "donkey rides on the british beach" because riding on a donkey is called "donkey ride" too if it happens in America.

Deleting some of your photos[edit]

Hi, these similar uploads come out from a discussion on irc. In fact I esplicated my situation and some guys told me to upload all the images, even if they were very similar (almost identical). Fale (talk) 15:39, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

In IRC, as I said before. Fale (talk) 16:18, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
No, I don't have any records, and is true that what someone in IRC says isn't always true. Btw: Multichill has reverted all your proposal for speedy deletion. Fale (talk) 17:17, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
It wasn't a critique to your work ;). If you think that they should be proposed for discussional delete, go ahead ;). Fale (talk) 19:45, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for the notification on my user page ;). Don't worry, I'm not (and I'll not) take this personal ;). Fale (talk) 10:05, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your suggestion, I'll look for that ;) Fale (talk) 18:05, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

West Glen River/"Bythams Brook"[edit]

Hi :) I'm curious about this. I can't remember where I read that it was the West Glen, but you seem to know something I do not. I think you seem to know Bytham pretty well (if you're from there, there's a chance you would have met me, actually), so: The river/stream that forms a ford on the bottom of Church Road is not the West Glen? If not, where does the West Glen run in the area? I'm not doubting that you are correct, I'm just curious. :) And thank you very much for correcting my egregious mistake! Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 18:20, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi! Yes, I used to live in that very house across the ford (the misnamed Glen Cottage) in your rather tasty monochrome photo. The so-called "Bythams Brook" or "Tham" (an incorrect back-formation, from the assumption that "Bytham" means/meant "by the Tham" in modern English, not "homestead/estate in a valley" in Anglo-Saxon! I see that SKDC hedge their bets by calling it the "Glen Brook" [1]. It rises about half a mile south-west of North Witham, beside the A1, and runs via Lobthorpe through Castle Bytham to Little Bytham, where it joins the West Glen on the east side of the railway embankment, at the edge of Rasell's Nurseries.
The West Glen itself rises near Boothby Pagnell, where there are several small tributaries, then flows generally southwards, passing through Bitchfield, east of Burton (le) Coggles, west of Corby Glen and east of Swayfield, through Creeton and on to Little Bytham. It is simply named the River Glen on the old 1-inch OS maps, which may be where the confusion arises.
The East Glen, the river that rises near Ropsley / Ingoldsby and runs south through Edenham, is unnamed on those OS maps, although it is also known as the Eden (again, probably another erroneous back-formation: Edenham means "Eada's estate"). Flowing through Toft and Manthorpe, the East Glen joins the West Glen at Wilsthorpe, near Baston, but much of its water has by that time been diverted via the Greatford Cut into the Welland near Market Deeping. After Wilsthorpe the River Glen proper flows away northeast towards the Wash, eventually joining the Welland.
And having worked all that out from my tatty old OS maps, I find someone else has already done it, here! Damn! ;) SiGarb (talk) 20:10, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for the detailed answer. I've put a {{rename}} request on this plus a few other photos of mine described as being the Glen. I'm glad you caught this! Lewis Collard! (lol, internet) 14:01, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
