OK, I'm going in...[edit]

I'll continue developing this, but if people want to dive right in with nitty gritty details go for it - and PLEASE fix the consequences of my spazzzy typing (cheers Berek). Icundell 15:49, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the nod, Icundell! <grin> Berek 08:56, 24 Nov 2004 (UTC)

When is a building not a building (FAO User:Honeydew)[edit]

Actually Canary Wharf is and single building (although I appreciate that you are probably coming from the perfectly correct 1 Canada Square <> Canary Wharf angle), but I'm not going to get stressed over this because the point is still made with your amendment.

Manufacturing employment data[edit]

There should be more up to date breakdowns - 2002 at least. If anyone can crack the labyrithine enigma that is the pisspoor ONS website and find it, please fill yer boots. Icundell 12:13, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Public sector as % GDP[edit]

In the Times recently was an article about a "Soviet north" (as they described it) which is heavily dependent on the public sector. I can remember some of the figures - 67% for Northern Ireland, 30-something% for London and the South East, 60+% for most of the North... It would be good to include something about this in the article, I'll see if I can find the Times story, although it will probably be subscription-only now. -- Joolz 23:59, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Good idea, although that the Times uses the term "Soviet" so inappropriately suggests the need for some caution in interpretation! Icundell 01:26, 3 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Expansion request[edit]

Rather predictably this article is overweighted towards primary industries and manufacturing. It needs extensive additions on the service sector, especially outside financial services, and on the role of the public sector in the economy. Osomec 07:18, 10 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And you have the solution in your own hands :) ! Icundell 09:45, 11 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Interwar aerospace clusters[edit]

In case anyone was wondering about my addition of London to the inter-war aerospace clusters, there were many other locations in and around London as well as the Hertfordshire group: Stag Lane (Handley Page), Cricklewood (Smiths Industries), Park Royal (Lucas Aerospace), Weybridge (forerunners of British Aircraft Corporation), Hayes (Fairey Aviation), Heston (Heston Aircraft Company), Kingston (Hawker Siddeley), Acton (Napier & Son), Hendon Aerodrome (Grahame-White Aviation), etc Pterre (talk) 21:22, 15 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.articlesbase.com/dating-articles/leeds-what-you-need-to-know-79116.html
    Triggered by \barticles(?:base|vana)\.com\b on the global blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.
