Untitled[edit]

This page duplicates material from http://www.kincaidmounds.com and from the Mississippian culture article. While Kincaid is an important site, and the materials in the present version are good, the text cannot duplicate copyrighted website or other Wikipedia articles. I am addressing this mostly to Heironymous Rowe, who I see is a new editor, and may not be aware of these rules. I will edit this soon if you do not make the changes.

Precision of coordinates[edit]

I have reduced the precision of the site's coordinates to no greater than one second per the Manual of Style. Per the size of this object, the coordinates should use less precision. One second equals approximately 101 feet, which is more than enough precision for this site. Please see Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Dates and numbers#Geographical coordinates and Wikipedia:WikiProject Geographical coordinates#Precision. •••Life of Riley (TC) 20:35, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Future inclusion[edit]

Stable date style being changed by new account SPA[edit]

The era style has been stable on this article for well over 5 years. Now an new account SPA (only edits so far are same as this) is seeking to change it back to its original style. Is there a consensus amongst the editors of this article for a date style, the stable version or the original style last used over 5 years ago? Similar arguments have been made Talk:Cahokia#Date Style and Talk:Native Americans in the United States/Archive 4#Date Style, so a consensus for keeping a stable version has precedence.

Also see Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Archive 19#Cahokia for a similar discussion. Heiro 03:47, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Agree with continued use of the CE-era style, especially given its stability.Parkwells (talk) 03:06, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. WP:ERA clearly says "Do not change the established era style in an article unless there are reasons specific to its content.". Dougweller (talk) 05:20, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
