Is this article too off-topic? Too detailed? Too rambling? Too hot/cold/just right? --Venkatesh 13:55:51, 2005-10-04 (Eastern Daylight Time)

It could use copyediting to make it tighter but the different types of bridges are important to know about. What does this article have that the wikipedia ones don't? The ties to LEGO are goodness. I say leave it with some editing at some point ++Lar 14:07, October 4, 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
Looks great, where did you get the images? Do they have an arch truss? ROSCO 19:11:51, 2005-10-05 (Eastern Daylight Time)
See the footnote on the page. Tim 19:14, 5 October 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
I could make one somewhat easily. I've never seen anyone try and arch truss, lenticular truss, or fink truss out of legos though. --Venkatesh 19:36:58, 2005-10-05 (Eastern Daylight Time)

And we can POV that baby from any angle you like. Tim 19:59, 5 October 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
Wow! Who built that? Although I would call that an arch bridge rather than an arch-truss, it is deserving of an article itself. You say it has been digitally designed, to be POV-ed? Most impressive. Teh force was with the designer.--Venkatesh 20:11:16, 2005-10-05 (Eastern Daylight Time)
That's ROSCO's Sydney Harbour Bridge. pov (more in gallery) Tim 20:44, 5 October 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)

Right now, this page uses both citations and footnotes. Both look the same in-text right now. Any thoughts? (who said that??)

Change them so that they all look different? Maybe cites and bibs should have "Cite:" or "Bibliography:" in front???? Maybe set a convention to use non numerics for them??? I dunno. (Nice work, Tim, on setting these up though...) ++Lar 18:31, October 19, 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
Cites have square brackets as do bibs. I'd like to remove the italics from the bib item which would make it more distinct too. If you know how could you do so please. Tim 18:47, 19 October 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
Not sure what you're asking me to do exactly. However try putting paired quotes (two quotes turns italic on/off I think, just as three quotes turns bolding on/off... didn't you do that trick in the trivia box???) around the part you DON'T want italicised maybe??? Also, are cite and bib paired the way fn and fnb are? If so I suggest a name change that shows their pairing the same way fn and fnb names do... What does Wikipedia do here? ++Lar 21:20, October 19, 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
The italics is done using an HTML keyword I am unfamiliar with but the triple ' might work. Cite and bib are paired but I gave them different names to make it clear what their functions were. It also sort of mimics the way latex does them. I can't find many Wikipedia articles which reference like this. Tim 04:55, 20 October 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
Maybe bibcite and bibinfo? I think functional clarity is good but pairing is also good. ++Lar 07:24, October 20, 2005 (Eastern Daylight Time)
