Barrels of Hay?[edit]

I would like to see a new picture. I, being from Ames, feel that it doesn't represent Ames at all. flockofpidgeons 24:24 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)

What do you think represents Ames well? I can go take a picture of it. —Ben Brockert (42) UE News 00:32, Feb 14, 2005 (UTC)
Some picture of downtown, or the University

Corresponding Articles[edit]

This article in Spanish, Galician, Dutch, and Portugese are Ames, Spain, not Ames, Iowa.

The "th" article I wasn't able to determine. But all the other current articles are about Ames, Iowa. Guess someone removed the others... --Tim4christ17 01:41, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Since this is a community project, what photos would the other contributing users like to see on the page? I like the one of Main Street, and I think one taken from the Skybox at Legends would be a great addition. Wingman1331 21:39, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

People[edit]

Should the people list contain fictional characters (e.g., Kate Austen)? - PsyberS (talk) 06:53, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

My guess would be no. If there's a fictional character who has Ames relevance sufficient to be mentioned in the article - and I can't think of how that would be the case - it should be mentioned in the text of the article, not the people list. --Tim4christ17 talk 08:26, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Mayor[edit]

The name of the mayor is linked to a Miss Oklahoma 1955. I cannot imagine them to be the same person. --Gereon K. (talk) 11:28, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

fighting bourito[edit]

what is this shrine that is talked about. I think the fighting bourito is cool and all but im not sure how the shrine part add anything to the text. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tex downey (talkcontribs) 14:19, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

I just corrected an erroneous statement that Ames founded by someone named Ames, which showed up in an edit from 25 July 2013 by <71.43.103.98>.

There was no prominent family named Ames involved in the early history of the town (or ever, really).
