Hello and welcome to Bhamwiki. We're really excited to see your contributions. If you haven't already, please read our User agreement and then feel free to dive in. --Dystopos 15:23, 19 August 2006 (PDT)


I merged the information you contributed to Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service Department. with the existing Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service article. Thanks for adding that info. --Dystopos 13:18, 10 March 2007 (PST)


  • Nice work fleshing out the station list and creating some good articles on them. Looks great. --Dystopos 08:07, 11 September 2007 (PDT)


  • Don't forget that we must have permission to use photographs for articles. Dave Sibley at has given us permission to use his photographs, so I have put the correct permission template and info on those pages for you. However, Image:Retiredstation11.jpg did not come from that source, and you did not notate where you got it from. We have permission to use images from the BPL's archives, so please notate that or note where the image came from, and what permissions we are using for it. Thanks a lot for stubbing in the Fire station articles, and uploading the images! --Wheresdib 19:14, 16 April 2009 (PDT)
  • I had already obtained permission from Dave Sibley, proprietor of, regarding them. He told me it was fine as long as we kept the "" notation on them. I still have the e-mail I just wasn't sure how to notate that with the images. I obtained the image:RetiredFireStation11.jpg from the Birmingham IFFA Local 117 but I still have to find out who to contact about using an image from their archives. It will be taken down until such time as I have obtained permission. --Jared Johnson 11:31AM, 21 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Just remember to tag the photos with the permission tag when you upload them. --Wheresdib 17:28, 21 April 2009 (PDT)

Street names

Your contributions making Bhamwiki a more complete reference are appreciated! However, please note that our style guide calls for street names to be spelled out, not abbreviated. Not a big deal and easily fixed, but I wanted to make you aware of it. Thanks. --Lkseitz 09:05, 19 October 2009 (PDT)

Birmingham addressing

I saw your tinkerings page on Birmingham street addresses and wanted to make sure you were aware of the Birmingham city center street grid article, as the two are related. Any corrections or expansions to that page are welcome, although I can certainly see the need for separate articles as yours takes the view of the city as a whole and, obviously, the other narrows in on downtown. --Lkseitz 08:41, 12 April 2012 (PDT)


  • Here's a link to the "tinkerings" sub-page you created. User:Jared Johnson/tinkerings. Have fun! --Dystopos 13:48, 16 April 2012 (PDT)
    • Thanks, I actually found it on my watchlist page, so I linked it on my user page just to make sure it didn't happen again.--Jared Johnson 14:04, 16 April 2012 (PDT)
