Montage Needed[edit]

Evansville, South Bend, and Fort Wayne both now need montages now that Indianapolis has one. Rhatsa26X (talk) 19:23, 30 July 2013 (CDT)

Golf?[edit]

Looking at Fort Wayne in Google Maps, I noticed many golf courses. Is Fort Wayne the golf capital of the Midwest? jmcw (talk) 09:01, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Umm...[edit]

Something weird is happening. This is NOT the Fort Wayne article. Please help and respond! --Mtsufan43 (talk) 03:49, 26 July 2008 (UTC)--

Metro area[edit]

It says it's the third, but really it's the second unless you're counting the Louisville KY-IN Metro area, which includes KY and the population of THAT metro area that actually lives in IN is quite low. The link to the source (article) only takes me to a news page, not the article. Consider changing it to second largest metro area in the state. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 148.85.212.68 (talk) 18:41, 17 June 2009 (UTC)


Indianapolis and the Gary metro area both beat the fort wayne —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.226.183.92 (talk) 18:39, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

78.95 sq mi[edit]

Is the current area of the city listed in the infobox from 2000, or is it more recent after the annexations of the last decade? --Criticalthinker (talk) 12:02, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I will review this GA nominee. I look forward to reviewing this article and working with you/you guys. Sportsguy17 (TC) 19:52, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

All references are proper and all references are live. Sportsguy17 (TC) 19:57, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Hello, Sportsguy17! Thanks for reviewing the Fort Wayne, Indiana Wikipedia page. I'm looking forward to hearing your comments. --User talk:99.102.0.109 —Preceding undated comment added 19:11, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

I am going to give an editor one week to respond at this page. After that, I will have to quick fail it due to a lack of response. Any willing to address GAR feedback would be appreciated. Sportsguy17 (TC) 23:35, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

I do not see any response, so I unfortunately am going to fail the article. This is a fine article and if another editor would like to put it back up at GAN at any point, that is fine and I'd be more than willing to take up the review. Sportsguy17 (TC) 02:42, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Structure[edit]

Hi. I'm going through all the US Cities (as per List of United States cities by population) in an effort to provide some uniformity in structure. Anyone have an issue with me restructuring this article as per Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline. I won't be changing any content, merely the order. Occasionally, I will also move a picture just to clean up spacing issues. I've already gone through the top 20 or so on the above list, if you'd like to see how they turned out. Thoughts?
