Default Article(s) to Blank and Delete

Good evening,

Due to dead-links, out of date information, etc., * STARRS - St Louis Area Regional Response System seems like it should be blanked and deleted.

What do others think?

Thanks,

Has the system described in the linked Wiki article been replaced with this system in the Database?

St. Louis Regional Communications (P25) Trunking System, St Louis Metro Area, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies

The DBAs that know the answer might not see the question here. I'm not sure what the best way of getting their attention would be.

Best to ask the people in the local area.

Try sending a PM to STARCOM21. He is one of the region's DBAs, and might have an answer for you.

I'd just post a message in the local forum. You'll probably get an answer much quicker.

Thanks for the suggestion, sir. I didn't want to run the risk of cross-posting without permission.



The * STARRS - St Louis Area Regional Response System conversation continues in this new thread in the Missouri forum:

Outdated STARRS Wiki article?



Other articles to be blanked/deleted can be discussed in this thread as appropriate.

Thanks,

Default Another outdated article?

Good morning,

The information in the article Upcoming Province of Alberta Projects will soon be 7-years old.

Is it still valid, or can the article be blanked and deleted?

Thanks,

Once again I doubt you will get many answers, simply because the title of the thread is too generic. I'd take this to the Canadian section, put the article name in the title and ask. That way you're far and away more likely to get an answer.

Thanks. Again, I didn't want to risk either being in the wrong forum, or making unapproved cross-posts.

The question has branched from this thread and now continues in this other thread...
Wiki article "Upcoming Province of Alberta Projects" old enough to be deleted?.

Thanks,

Good morning Wiki Admins,

Another Wiki-editor started to blank the two "BandPlan" pages (Site 1, and Site 5) that are related to the RFC_Wireless (DMR), with the note that the info is now in the DB.

However, the "Color Code" shown on the two "BandPlan" Wiki pages does not seem to be listed in the DB, yet.

Should the 2 BandPlan Wiki pages be restored/reverted as needed and kept active until the DB lists the Color Code?
OR, should the 2 BandPlan Wiki pages be completely blanked and deleted?

Thanks,

It appears that this information has indeed been moved into the database, and is kept at the site level. Go down to the bottom of these pages and you'll see the color codes and LSNs are there

Black Mountain Site Details (RFC Wireless (DMR))

Mt Presson Site Details (RFC Wireless (DMR))

I'm willing to bet not all the DBAs are doing this yet as a standard, but at least here, it looks like those 2 wiki articles should be dropped

Mike

ka3jjz, Thanks Mike for noticing that the color-codes are on the tower-site pages in the DB. This morning I figured I had missed seeing them, and it's because I had checked only the TRS' main page in the DB, not the tower-site pages; but at the same time I was confident that the DBA(s) would not delete such data from the Wiki if the information was not in the DB somewhere.

W9BU, The related Wiki pages are now fully blanked and ready for deletion.

Thanks,
