Tornado Damage[edit]

I added a line or two about the extensive damage caused by the 10 April 2009 Tornado. I forgot to sign my edit here is my signature Magnum Serpentine (talk) 14:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

You don't know what footnotes mean, look at Myrtle Hill Cemetery and I will keep continuing this same until you stop being a dolt. By way this is not a Vulcan. Logicals don't fit in encyclopedia. Check Wikipedia:Footnotes. --Culby (talk) 18:53, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

The tornado damage is unimportant, and Wikipedia:Footnotes specifically allows explanatory matter there. Since there's just two of us, I suggest a Third Opinion. (It violates WP:NPA to call another editor a dolt.) Hi540 (talk) 00:58, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
We are disagreed with you about tornado damagael however footnotes isn't allow "long detail", only short summary. I do not see that a "dolt" violate any policies because this is not a personal attack, it is an insult to your intelligence. You brought illogicial sense yourself. I have no respect to rude and illogical Wikipedians. I do not buy that you are graduating from an university anyway. I still continue what I believe is right thing of encyclopedian styles and media universes. I see that you have no senses to leave arguements but you are not bossy of me. Good Day, Dolt. --Culby (talk) 04:29, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I've posted a notice about your incivility here.Hi540 (talk) 14:18, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

FWIW, here's a third opinion from a complete outsider:

  • You are both slow-edit-warring over this.
  • The content seems unnotable and unimportant.
  • The article looks much better with the text in the article's body. It looks ugly with the text in the footnotes.
  • Calling someone a dolt and claiming that it merely is an insult to their intelligence, is severely violating WP:NPA.
  • I would remove the entire damage description, and keep the one small referenced sentence, without the details.

Just an opinion. DVdm (talk) 14:50, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I've done just that, except I've left one sentence in the footnote to give an idea of the severity of the tornado strike.Hi540 (talk) 10:24, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Looks very good now. I made another subtle change. Those who are interested in the details can find all (and perhaps even more than) they need by following the link. Cheers - DVdm (talk) 12:06, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Hi, I have since retired from activatly editing Wikipedia so I just noticed the above discussion and wonder if I had done something wrong? If I remember I had posted that part about the damage to the park, just a few hours after the Tornado Struck down there in Murfreesboro.( I saw the extent of the damage to the park myself and I am amazed at how quickly the park has since, recovered) I will say that I only expected my comments to remain for a short time until the newness of the event wore off then I expected that someone would re-state my statement on the Tornado and the way the article appears now is very close to what I thought would happen to a comment made in haste after a major disaster. I apologize again if I caused trouble. Thank you now back into retirement for me Magnum Serpentine (talk) 19:22, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
