Hi, welcome to Tractor & Construction Plant Wiki!

David Brown 770 Selectamatic

Welcome

Thanks for your edit to the File:1923 ad.jpg page.

There's plenty of information to add to the project, so I hope you'll stay with us and help make many more improvements.

The aim is to gather information on every make and model of Tractor, Construction Plant machine, Steam tractor and Truck built, as well as related material and list every example in preservation both in the UK and world wide.

Details of Museums, Clubs and Private collections of preserved vintage and classic machinery is also very welcome. The site covers all makes of machinery, so if its missing add it please !

Recent changes is a great first stop, because you can see what pages other people have been editing, and where you can help.
Questions? You can ask at the Help desk or on the "discussion" page associated with each article.
Need help? The Community Portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit.
Please sign in every time you edit, so that we (and others) can credit your contributions to you !

We're really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you!

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- BulldozerD11 (Talk) 19:42, 2010 October 26

Thanks Edit

Thanks for expanding the McCormick-Deering 15-30 article & adding the old adverts.

The advert images are an awquid shape to fit within the text, or in the image gallery section so placing them in a 'table' may help layout. A 3 or 4 colum table probably fits the page width best.

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! header 1
! header 2
! header 3
|-
| row 1, cell 1
| row 1, cell 2
| row 1, cell 3
|-
| row 2, cell 1
| row 2, cell 2
| row 2, cell 3
|}

were 'row1, cell 1' is the replaced by the 1st photo's code [[File:your photos name|200px]] and the 'row2, cell 1' is replaced by a caption for the image. (200px sets the size inplace of the thumb code that adds a border & size can change depending on which user is viewing as based on personal preferences)

Let me know if you have any problems with the site or need any help with the templates. - BulldozerD11 17:05, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

AvatarsEdit

Note they do not always update immediately on upload - BulldozerD11 17:37, October 30, 2010 (UTC)

Example of a 3 col table with your images inEdit

This table based on code above creates the table of images seen below. Putting the photo in one cell and the caption in the one below and setting a fixed image size removes the standard Thumbnail border and the uploaders name

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! example 1
! example 2
! wxample 3
|-
| [[File:1924.jpg|200px]]
| [[File:McCormick-Deering_15-30_(22-36)_advert.jpg|200px]]
| [[File:1930_15-30_(22-36)_ad.jpg|200px]]
|-
| A 1924 advert
| [[McCormick-Deering 15-30]]
| 1930 - McCormick-Deering 15-30
|-
| [[File:22-36_poster.jpg|200px]]
| [[File:Nov,_1923_McCormick-Deering_advert.jpg|200px]]

|-

| Nov 1923 advert
| with a place holder image
|-
| [[File:Example.jpg|150px]]
|
|
|-
| A spare
| row of
| cells
|}

The above code gives;-

example 1 example 2 wxample 3
1924 McCormick-Deering 15-30 (22-36) advert 1930 15-30 (22-36) ad
A 1924 advert McCormick-Deering 15-30 1930 - McCormick-Deering 15-30
22-36 poster Nov, 1923 McCormick-Deering advert Image needed
Poster Nov 1923 advert with a place holder image
Example
A spare row of cells


Image Size is set to 200px to fit 3 colums in a page, for 2 try 300px. Ti use in your user page just cipy the example above and replace the omage names (codes) with the ones already on the page arranging them in the order you what them to appear (remove the left/right position codes i added to arrange them the other day as when using images in a table they float to left of the cell & table size auto adjust to suit) . (sorry for late reply, missed you post the other day) - BulldozerD11 20:16, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Turner 'Yeoman of England' Tractors Edit

Re your post about Turner Yeoman of England tractors. - A more detailed reply from summary on my talk page.

Any info extra info is welcome - I have photos of the ones shown at Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show turner special & probably a few others I've seen still to add. I understand Turner engines were fitted in a few other products as well, so any details could be added in the main turner article or a seperate Turner Engines article.

With All the makes the Idea was to start off with what info i can find on the company and then list all tractor models build + other products and then for tractors, trucks, cars etc and then list all known survivors - Mainly based on what i see at shows and examples in magazines etc with each vehicle (potentialy) having its own page if more info or photos are available (the problem is linking them together - ideally done by "make-model and serial number" or/and reg number from the list on the model page, as owner ifo is not always correct in magazines/show guides). Makes such as Field Marshall which are easily identified have had a fair number of people helping expand the listing of known examples, other makes only have the ones i have added initially. So please add any you can or encourage others to add there machines and more info. Editing the standardised outline table can be a bit tricky, (at first as it has special characters to format it which if missed out send it wonky) but if people list the info in the article i can add it for them to the existing table for that make/model, or add a table if its not been added yet.

I have a huge backlog of photos & info from shows as I try to get every tractor present and other machinery. I've not added alot in recent months as the host has been changing the site look and updating sites features, some of which has messed up pages. As it takes alot of time to add/expand articles with original material I could have concentrated on just a few makes / models and copied it from other sites or books but i try not to just copy and paste stuff off the web (But alot of the initial ones were copied from wikipedia (as it is posted under a suitable free license) but then they have been rewritten and expanded to interlink them and add the list of models and tables of known examples. The original idea was to create the outline and initial articles to attract and allow people such as yourself to add details on any make they know about without having to start from scratch creating a one make/model web page/site and instead collects the knowledge of many enthusiasts in one place like Wikipedia but in more detail and with a open online register of known (surviving) tractors & plant and related material in a far more structured way than happens on 'chat forums' where lots of such info is posted but then 'lost' as discussions jump about and new threads/topics appear.

If you have any suggestion to improve the layout/structure please tell me as i get little feedback. If you are not sure if something is suitable please ask, but in general if it is connected to a company featured or relates to collecting/preservation of tractors or plant and related machinery we can probably fit it in some were even if it does not sit in the initial article very well as we can move it to a new one by a bit of editing and linking it from related articles. - BulldozerD11 00:07, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
