Hello, welcome to Coasterpedia! Thanks for sorting out the height and drop with Colossos. It's been confusing because the incorrect height was called out a while back and it was changed on here, but RCDB changed it back and someone reverted the changes on here also. The height listed now makes much more sense however and it has inspired me to take a look at the record history for wooden coasters. I didn't realise it was in such a mess.

Hello again, thankyou for all your contributions. Only one thing - please don't remove redlinks, as these are to encourage people to create the articles. I am sorry, there are no written policies yet on this website, but we've always used the redlinks so we know where to expand next.
Rankings[edit | edit source]
I thought I should let you know, I started a list on Talk:Tallest roller coasters of all the historical height records, and I plan to do the same for other records as well. Just so there is one place to refer to. Some of them, especially with wooden coasters, can be a bit confusing so I'm doing some research into it.
Recent edits[edit | edit source]
Thanks again for your continued help! I wanted to let you know I created a new page, Coasterpedia:Manual of Style/Naming convention, with some information on names. It's so we can keep the site looking clean and consistent. As with any manual of style page please propose any changed on the talk page. Also for the heights, thanks for adding those in. I'm planning on building a height restriction template which will make it easier to add accompanied height, unaccompanied height, maximum height etc. Again I'll let you know when it's finished so you can use it as well.

Most roller coasters in one park[edit | edit source]
Flat spin or Corkscrew?[edit | edit source]
Hey, Airtime. Happy new year to you! I just wondered, do you know what the difference is between a wing over and a corkscrew? To me they look the same, but I see RCDB lists them as seperate inversions now as well. Confusingly Nemesis is listed as having a corkscrew, whereas other B&M inverteds are listed as having wing overs. If I had more info I'd make an article for it but at the moment there's nothing to write about...
Adding "The" in front of artice names[edit | edit source]
Hello, please stop adding The to the beginning of article names, it's been a policy on this website for a long time but we can discuss it on the talk page of Coasterpedia:Manual of Style/Naming convention if you like. I finally put it in writing on that page (I could have sworn it was there already). Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 10:52, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
Site merging proposal[edit | edit source]
As you're a regular editor here I want to let you know about some changes to the site. I am seriously considering merging the Coasterpedia and Tilt-A-Wiki sites. Check out Coasterpedia:Site merger and please leave any thoughts over on that page.
