Preview button

One thing to add, not sure if you're aware but there is a "preview" button, it should help reduce the number of times you need to save and reopen the editor. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 19:12, 26 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello! I've moved the road trip article you made to User:Sheareri/RT, as it's not really suitable for an article but its no problem having personal/blog type stuff in your own userspace. Also I don't think many people will read it here, if you are wanting to share it you're probably better off posting on a forum such as CoasterForce. But if you want to write more trip plans/ideas here please feel free! Finally, if you have come all the way to the UK, wouldn't you want to come a bit further north and visit Alton Towers and Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

Hello, just a quick note to say I appreciated your work on the various Disney articles. I've largely ignored these up until now, but am finally giving them some attention. If you're following them, you'll see a bunch of edits from me as I update them. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 23:40, 26 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Coaster "type"

Hello! The aim of the "type" column is to categorise every ride/coaster into a general "type" rather than a specific model. So for Boomerang coasters, they would come under Shuttle. Unfortunately though the Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster doesn't really fall under any category other than Steel or Sit-Down. The system still needs work though, but my feeling is using ride types rather than specific models is more helpful as I think most viewers will be familiar with some of the ride types, but less likely to know about the specific models. Hope that makes sense? Let me know your thoughts. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 12:16, 12 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, as it breaks the existing convention as said above, I'm going to revert your recent edits to the park tables. I am definitely up for discussing it further though, the convention is a bit unclear. It falls apart particularly for roller coasters like Intamin Impulse coasters, as they fall into several of the "types". My personal opinion though is the "type" should remain a generic category, rather than the specific model of a coaster. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 22:17, 12 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Forgot to add, I'm working on a guide to different ride types at the moment. The draft is at User:Lachlan/rides. I hope eventually it'll make things clearer to new users and let people discuss and change it consistently across the website. :) Lachlan (Talk | contribs) 13:03, 16 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
