Bradford Bypass[edit]

Hello Floydian - regarding your last edit to Bradford Bypass, where you tweaked the sentence that begins "The proposed route would serve...", I would suggest that the whole sentence should be removed, because it's redundant vis-a-vis the first paragraph. Also, despite its name the main purpose of the road is to connect the 400 and 404. It also happens to bypass Bradford along the way. Thoughts? Regards, PKT(alk) 12:03, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

That was an attempt to link bypass in the lede per an edit summary by Turini... I agree though, I kind of shoehorned that in. Can you see any good spots to insert that link? - Floydian τ ¢ 13:33, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
I gave it a shot. If you don't like it, feel free to revert, but I think it meets your intention. Cheers! PKT(alk) 16:33, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

File:72 Frog Rapids Narrows, 1938.png[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you added a {{Keep local}} to the aforementioned file, which is now on Commons. I'm trying to clean up enwiki images right now and was wondering if you still wanted this file kept locally, or CSD'd as having a commons duplicate. It's from about 10 years or so ago, so I'm touching base. Thanks, and I really like the word you've been doing with Canadian infrastructure! :) Sennecaster (What now?) 18:15, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

I have a grudge with commons; they're over-adamant and ignorant. I have no problem with copies being transferred to Commons, but would prefer if a local copy is kept where I can steamroll over any unbased copyright concerns. - Floydian τ ¢ 22:25, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! Though I hate enwiki file tagging more than Commons :P If you're still doing file stuff with Canada government; PD-CanadaGov is a better template to use since it bypasses the PD review of normal PD-Canada. Sennecaster (What now?) 23:28, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Ontario Highway 403 scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the Ontario Highway 403 article has been scheduled as today's featured article for July 15, 2021. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 15, 2021, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1000 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so.

For Featured Articles promoted recently, there will be an existing blurb linked from the FAC talk page, which is likely to be transferred to the TFA page by a coordinator at some point.

We suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors from the day before this appears on Main Page. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 13:35, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
