Map issues

With the new software, maps aren't always displaying correctly. Try refreshing the page. If that doesn't work (and it probably won't), adding more space to the map syntax often does the trick.

For example, replacing this:


fixed the map in question. Not sure if there's something about the line breaks or if it's the simple act of making the change. We have had this problem in the past and these edits have helped. Uzbek (talk) 19:47, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

6x4

When marking an apparatus 6x4, please ensure that it's actually 6x4 - 6x4 refers to a 4-wheel drive vehicle with 3 axles / 6 wheels. Otherwise, it's a tandem. 6x4 fire apparatus isn't very common, so please change any incorrect notations you see. Thanks. Uzbek (talk) 19:14, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

New software

Fandom has switched us over to their new platform. I have as much to learn as anyone else and am still figuring everything out. The look has changed somewhat and as far as editing goes, some things seem easier, other things seem harder. They're also replacing talk pages with article comments.

Please note that this is a mandatory change from Fandom - they're switching over all pages to this platform. Uzbek (talk) 16:12, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

Company Internal Links

There has been some confusion and inconsistency about where to put the internal links to apparatus companies in rosters. I've generally added it to the newest truck - so if there was a 2014 Pierce and a 2017 Pierce, I'd put it on the 2017 and then any newer ones that arrived afterward. However, others have been making it the first example listed, closest to the beginning of an article. So if the 2014 Pierce is at Station 1 and the 2017 at Station 4, the 2014 would have the link to the Pierce article.

Upon reflection, first example makes a lot more sense. It's easier for users to find and likely easier to maintain, especially if it's a long article. It's also standard practice for Wikipedia articles. Please do continue however limit it to on…

Rosenbauer / General Safety

So General had a production agreement with Rosenbauer in 1995. When did they stop applying their own logo to apparatus and move to all Rosebauer badging?

When did they stop being General Safety Equip. Corp. and rename/re-incorporate as Rosenbauer Minnesota LLC?

Thanks

(Get an error message when replying in the conventional way)

Looks like 2003. That's the year the Commander chassis was introduced and from looking at photos, it was around that time that the General and Central States badging disappeared and Rosenbauer logos started to appear.
This is part of a broader question, and that is whether or how should this be included in the rosters? The same could apply to ALF (RD Murray, Becker, etc), E-One (Saulsbury, Superior) and eventually Sparta…

Email alerts

I used to get email alerts regularly when changes were made to pages that I follow however I have not been getting them for the last 6-12 months... Am I the only one having this problem?  

I have checked my profile settings to ensure the email alerts were still active and nothing has been going to my 'junk folder'.

I found these alerts useful.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

Housingcop.
