Talk:Walnut Creek, California
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Walnut Creek, California article.|
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Sources for Cass McCombs and Markie Post being born in Walnut Creek? Their wikipedia pages say differently, and that is embarrasing. _________________________________________________________
I don't see why there is a paragraph about pipeline expansion on the "Local Folklore" section. This isn't really connected to the undergrounding of the creek. Also, IIRC, the current project is a water main that is running towards San Ramon. They hit a Kinder Morgan petrolium pipeline near a location where the petrol pipeline jogged towards the path of the new pipeline.
How about we remove the whole section on "secrets." I must have missed what the gang has to do with the fact that there is a secret lake. _________________________________________________________

- So be bold and fix it, eh? Anyway, done. This article does need some work. Luna Santin 00:37, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
Assigned a B class since overall it is a usable article: NPOV: satisfactory images: good writing: satisfactory breadth: decent, but could use more on ecology, geology and infrastructure sources: lacking Anlace 23:31, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
Vanity Spam at Famous Citizens
I removed what seem to be vanity spam for skateboarders and hi-tech personalities etc. --Kevin Murray 18:44, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Bay Miwok in Walnut Creek
Our history section appears to contradict the Bay Miwok article which says:
There are five authenticated tribes or bands with villages of the same name: 
At present-day City of Lafayette and/or Walnut Creek: Saclan. Saclan territory extended through the hills east of present day City of Oakland, Rossmoor, Lafayette, Moraga, and Walnut Creek. At Present-day City of Concord: Chupcan. At Mt. Diablo and along Marsh Creek: Volvon (also spelled Wolwon, Zuicun). At San Joaquin River (east of Antioch): Julpon. At Present-day City of Danville or Walnut Creek, on San Ramon Creek: Tatcan.
Link to Sacramento
I placed a wikipedia-link in this article where the word "Sacramento" appears. Another editor, who appears to be stalking me and is reverting everything that I do, claims that I am "overlinking" by doing this. I have read the policy, and think I understand it, and I disagree with him. The word "Sacramento" was not linked anywhere else in this article before I made the link, and I think that my link provided good context for a reader who did not know Walnut Creek but thought that maybe they knew Sacramento. Was there anything wrong with my link? I would like someone objective to give their opinions. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:18, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
- Well, I guess this edit proves that this editor realizes that he has been caught harassing and/or falsely accusing me of violating wikipedia procedures. I won't hold my breathe waiting for an apology, but at least now the truth is out there for everyone to see. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:41, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
With a city article, the images should provide a clear image of whatever section they're illustrating. There were two black and white photos of downtown and I removed one, since it was focused on cars parked along the street, which could be anywhere, not necessarily Walnut Creek. I left in the one that shows more of what is clearly Walnut Creek. I also removed a Canal Trail photo from "open Space" since, although the caption stated it was "near an open space," was not a photo of an actual open space.
The Northgate Community photo--this is actually a neighborhood in the city. There are currently no neighborhoods listed on this article and since the photo is mainly of a street, it doesn't really represent the neighborhood very well--my opinion. This is a pretty good article on the city and I would like to see the photos reflect what's in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Utilizer (talk • contribs) 16:49, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
Points of interest vs. restaurants
Please don't put restaurants under "Points of interest" unless the restaurant is in a notably historic building (with evidence of that), or is of some other historic value. If you want to create a "business" section and include some notable restaurants (restaurants that have long standing in the community, historic sites, and/or well documented critical reviews, etc.), that would make more sense.
The suggestion from 2008 is an even better one--a section for "Employers" (or "Economy") with the city's biggest employers. That would benefit the article. Since Walnut Creek has a lot of restaurants, an approximate count and estimate of employees, plus revenue restaurants generate for the area would ultimately be the most informative. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Utilizer (talk • contribs) 16:49, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
