Dear Nilfanion, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Feb-Mar 2015 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Thank you, odder (talk) 20:47, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

@Nilfanion: I see you're still active, please don't forget to sign or to resign here. Thanks. Trijnsteltalk 12:15, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Somerset maps[edit]

Hi, I've created the templates in [1] , wasn't aware you'd previously made maps. Is it possible that you could check them, I tried the Mendip map in Babington House and the pin was outside the area to the northwest for some reason. Is it possible you could make similar district maps for Cheshire and Merseyside as an editor I know does a lot of work on buildings there.Blofeld Dr. (talk) 09:47, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I have made electoral ward maps for every district of the UK in that style, cf Category:Maps of Cheshire. Fixed the Mendip template - the W and E were back to front :)
However, I do not think these maps are suitable for this use. Two reasons:
  1. Stable admin, not very variable electoral, divisions should be used. The equivalent maps using CPs.
  2. Location-in-county is primary purpose of the infobox maps, with location-in-country, being the secondary factor. The district-level maps show the less significant location-in-district, make location-in-county harder to visualise, and are useless for location-in-country.

I will raise this matter at w:Wikipedia talk:WikiProject UK geography--Nilfanion (talk) 12:53, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
