Otis Elevator Fixtures Guide (American) issue
A user claimed that the HydroFit fixtures are really Series 7. Here's the message that he left on my talkpage:
I am very sorry to do this, but I fell it is my duty as an elevator enthusiast. The Otis Elevator Fixtures Guide is being trashed with incorrect information. A certain user is butchering it and I have found it very hard to read. The Otis Lexan articles have been deleted, and the some names are being changed from "Otis Series 7" (the correct name) to "Otis HydroFit" This is just one of the examples of the many incorrect additions. Please change this ( I do not have the knowledge and how to create these articles) so please, please update that page.
Please explain this to him as I do not have sufficient knowledge of those American Otis fixtures. Thanks.
Re: Elevator fixtures location
This photo was taken by me. They were installed in Hard Rock Hotel Bali, Indonesia.
I have leave a message about this plagiarism stuff to their website.
- Here's the message that I received from thema few days ago.
|“|| Thanks for writing, but the only page I've edited is "elevator keys" and my own user page. I've never uploaded a photo to your wiki or edited any other pages. I looked into that user's edit history and found what I think you were referring to on the ElevatorKeys.com homepage.
I've removed the U.S. Elevator logo, because I was not able to determine where that image was originally sourced, however I should note that unless your user is the U.S. Elevator Corporation or one of its parent companies, the request to remove it is likely not legal and I will require more information. If they feel they have a valid copyright claim, they can complete a DMCA request by sending it to this email address, making sure to include their name, address, identifying the images in dispute, providing a certification that they have a good-faith belief that the use is not authorized by the copyright holder or the law, a certification that they are authorized by the copyright holder to act in that capacity, and a statement made under penalty of perjury that the above information is accurate.Regarding the allegation that I plagiarized text, I strongly suggest that you re-read that user's complaint. He admits that "the text is not a direct copy." Facts cannot be copyrighted and the text as it appears on the ElevatorKeys.com home page was written by me. Again, if your user feels they have a copyright claim they can submit it to me directly.Finally, I find it to be incredibly ironic for that user to claim that I've somehow infringed on their "copyright" when they in fact turned around and made about 20 edits to the Elevator Keys wiki page on your site - after claiming that they were somehow plagiarized - that were all obviously copied from ElevatorKeys.com. Have a look for yourself at that user's contributions on February 6:http://elevation.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Upanddownadventures
I believe I've replied in good faith to your concerns, but if you have any further inquiry on this matter, I will refer them to my attorney.

Good point, but I have ridden many ThyssenKrupp Northern elevators with these fixtures. I have visited thisbuilding countless times. I have pressed those buttons, and I am 99.9% sure those are Epco WNR.
Check out the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oauj25LQKow compared to this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYGcII-zLgQ&noredirect=1
Re: Removing categories
On the Categories dropdown located on a module on the right hand side of the screen, you'll see a small trash bin icon on every categories when you're pointing your mouse cursor on those categories. Click the icon then the category will be removed instantly.
I would like to see the link to the part of the T.K.N. website please.
I don't know if you saw my other message but my Chris Carson channel had to be shut down by my parents' orders in order for me to study for my finals. I will be opening a new channel under a different username (not my actual name) for security reasons this Thursday which is only a couple of days away.
I forgot to update my status bar, thanks for reminding me about that.

Re: Uploading photos
Sorry, I'm not sure what caused you to unable to upload photos as I'm currently not logged in using my laptop (I'm currently logged in using my mobile phone). I'm guessing it's probably an error on Wikia.
"Permission error" problem
Generic elevator component door sill guide
Re: Unknown elevator fixtures
Sorry, I don't know about those fixtures, but I believe they are generic fixtures.
I suspect these buttons are made by DMG because of the similar symbols and numbering font, but I'm not sure which series are they.
- After looking through DMG's technical catalog (go to page 21-22), I believe these are BL Light with a pillowed rectangle frame (series K).
Re: List of elevators that have not been filmed
You can make that list on Elevator Community Wiki.
Re: Electrical & electronic components seen on, but not unique to elevators
I think they should be there as a Wikipedia links since they are mostly not related to elevators.
Re: Amtech Reliable Elevator Co.
Ah yes, my mistake. Thanks for the notice.

Re: Schindler 9700 AE
My mistake. I though the 9700 AEs are moving walks but they're not, the moving walks version is called 9500 (horizontal) and 9500 AE (inclined). Thanks for noticing me.
Re: Elevator records list
Sorry for the late reply because I forgot to check my talkpage last night. Unfortunately I have lost interest in Elevator Database Wiki, so I might no longer making any edits in there (so pretty much it is now abandoned). You should put the elevator records list on Elevator Community Wiki instead.
Re: Private pages
Unfortunately Wikia does not have a feature to make a page private. The only way to hide the information is to delete the page. The page will still be kept in the admin panel (not accessible to the public) and admins can restore it anytime if requested. Here in Wikia, there are only three options to allow edits on pages; all users, registered users only, and administrators only.
Re: Elevator Database Wiki
Yes it is now abandoned. I might consider to close it sometime in the future.
Re: Elevator Database Wiki adminship request
All we wanted is to keep EDW as a place for elevator database. For the Wikia Maps, I haven't test them but since you've told me the problems, I suggest you should disable them.
Re: ThyssenKrupp ISIS elevator catalog
I found the catalog from an elevator enthusiasts Facebook group. Since finding the ThyssenKrupp ISIS catalogs on the internet would be impossible (as they are most likely to be no longer exists), I decided to store it in my Google Drive.
Re: Kone may have not invented the MRL?
I'm not sure about that. I will have to find some more proof if there was another company invented MRL earlier than Kone. I once saw from one of Otis's history facts that they created an MRL in Japan back in the early 1990s, but I don't know about that.
Re: Otis NextStep
I think you're right. It appears that the Otis websites for most other countries (excluding the U.S.) are now outdated.
I have created a new page for the new disclaimer you've suggested to me. Feel free if you want to add more disclaimer, as I haven't protect the page yet.
Re: Custom fixtures gallery
I think that custom fixtures photos should be on the respective elevator company's fixtures guides, under the "Other fixtures" section which is usually found near the bottom of the page. I think I will revise that section a bit by separating the gallery into new subsections; "Custom fixtures" and "Other fixtures". The "Other fixtures" section should contain photos of fixtures that we are not sure if they are custom or not.
Re: Elevator sounds
Sorry for the late reply, student's orientation period from my college made me very busy. I think the elevator sounds should be added on the elevator fixtures guide pages first, as I believe there hasn't been any single elevator sound files documented on this wiki. Once there are many elevator sounds documented here, they should be moved to separate pages.
Re: Sound files
I tried uploading one sound file to this wiki (both using computer and smartphone) and it didn't work. It appears that there are no capabilities of uploading sound files to Wikia. I think it's better to provide a YouTube video link instead from now.
SJEC is indeed a Chinese elevator manufacturer, based in Suzhou. I believe IECO distributes SJEC escalators in the United States. Liftronic in Australia also sells and distributes SJEC elevators and escalators hence their products are branded as "Liftronic-SJEC". For the "SJEC-Louser" case, I have never heard Louser Lift distributes SJEC escalators as all SJEC products are usually distributed by another company called PT. Prawita Karya, but there could be a possibility that Louser may also distributes SJEC escalators but not very often.
As for Johnson, I'm not so sure if they manufactures escalators based on SJEC or they simply distributes SJEC products.
- It's actually Liftronic-SJEC. Regards, TheDragonFire. (Contact me | Contributions) 21:05, September 4, 2017 (UTC)
Re: Reference error on Otis fixtures guide worldwide page
Thanks for notifying me. I have removed the tag as I don't really know how to fix it.
Re: Videos page not updating
It was most likey a glitch on Wikia's server. I checked the video on my computer and smartphone, it worked just fine. I was using Opera browser on my computer.
Re: Elev Brochure Archive
Yes it is.
