Thanks for Thomas Hastings Gravestone![edit]

Thanks for documenting this gravestone. The photo of the Thomas Hastings gravestone has been linked to Thomas Hastings - architect. Was your photo of the gravestone taken in the Putnam cemetery in Connecticut where Hastings is reported to be buried? Thanks, Bob — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobhastings (talkcontribs) 03:43, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I have the same question. Can you please put location on the Wiki page? Thanks. RonRice (talk) 21:21, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Yvette Vickers[edit]

I know it's in the source but what is your personal reasoning behind including the street name of where Vickers lived? I'm of two minds about being so specific. Dismas|(talk) 13:23, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

I see no harm in being specific. The location of Marilyn Monroe's death and Lou Gehrig's death is shown in their respective Wikipedia articles. I became interested in Yvette Vickers after I just watched Attack of the 50 Foot Woman on Turner Classic Movies. She was a good actress and a hot Playboy Playmate. It's really sad how she died.

Anthony Judging by the comments at the top of the page, I thought that some drastic editing was needed. However you obviously hold this page of high value so I won't get in your way. I agree though with the criticism that the football information is too long and it does read like an advertisement for the school. I am a graduate of the the Prep and admire the school and alums a great deal. Your feedback is appreciated and I will put back the info on Renzie Lamb and a few other notable alums.

Audrey Meadows[edit]

Audrey was born in NYC, unlike her elder sister, Jayne, as per this footnote, gleaned from Ancestry.com:

Audrey Cotter was born in New York City in 1922, not in China as has been commonly stated. A 1921 passenger list shows the family entering the United States from China via Vancouver (S.S. Empress of Russia arriving at Vancouver from Shanghai, July 10, 1921). A 1927 passenger list shows Audrey's birthplace as New York (S.S. Olympic, arriving at New York from Southamption, May 3, 1927). The 1930 U.S. census, listing the family in Providence, Rhode Island, also shows Audrey's birthplace as New York City and her age as 8 years old in April 1930, which also confirms 1922 as her year of birth.

    • Anthony: Of course, discrepancies arrive and sometimes are not easy to settle which leads to footnotes or endnotes detailing conflicting information. I certainly do not go by Find-a-Grave as a rule, however U.S. government records: census, travel manifests/itineraries, Social Security Death Index records, etc. are generally reliable, and incomparably superior to IMDb, Find-a-Grave, or hearsay. Yours, Quis separabit? 15:54, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Thank you for your additions to Jesse Owens. Please note that you need to add reliable sources to the information to include. So far none of the new detail has any citation. Thanks Span (talk) 22:50, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Notables MUST have sources[edit]

Whether its this edit for Cassville, Missouri or this one for List of people from Newark, New Jersey, WP:LISTPEOPLE requires that notables added to a list within an article must include a reliable and verifiable source establishing a connection between the person and the place. If you knew that the person was connected to the place based on the source, simply add the same source to the article. If there was no source in the original article for the person, adding the individual to the article risks propogating incorrect information. Please feel free to contact me on my talk page with any questions. Alansohn (talk) 15:27, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

This edit to the article for Wall Township, New Jersey added Gil McDougald as a notable, with no source provided. Per WP:LISTPEOPLE, all entired in such lists must have articles and must have reliable and verifiable sources establishing their connection to the place. If you knew that the person was connected to the place based on a source, simply add the same source to the article. If there was no source for the person that you used as the basis for the addition, adding the individual to the article risks propogating incorrect information. Please ensure that all future edits adding notables to lists in articles include the required sources and feel free to contact me here or on my talk page with any questions about how to add the required sources. Any future unsourced additions may be removed and may be treated as vandalism. Alansohn (talk) 15:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Jesse Owens[edit]

Thanks for your message. I'm sure the content will add good things to the article. It just needs an inline citation, as is the policy at WP. Thanks Span (talk) 19:43, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

howdy[edit]

Wow, look at all this great work.  :-)   Thanks for improving wikipedia. I collapsed some of your older messages, I hope you don't mind. You can always click the 'show' button to see them, and you can still edit them if necessary. However, if you don't like the new talkpage-decorator, feel free to click the view-history button, and undo my changing-of-the-drapes. 74.192.84.101 (talk) 22:59, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

good work on Lewie aka Kareem[edit]

Hello Anthony, you can call me 74. Noticed your work adding the info about the Tower of Power, thanks. I went ahead and added your sentence back in, with the URL you cited. Here[6] is what I did:

EDITING
This earned him a nickname — "''The tower from Power''."<ref name="PhillyDotCom">http://articles.philly.com/1989-05-25/sports/26109975_1_power-memorial-high-school-kareem-abdul-jabbar-power-basketball</ref>

And here is what it looks like:

READING
This earned him a nickname — "The tower from Power."[1]

No need to be all fancy, though. Any time you want to use a URL to cite something, you can do it like this:

EDITING#2 The sky is blue.[http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/topnav/materials/listbytype/Why_is_the_Sky_Blue.html]

Which looks like this:

READING#2 The sky is blue.[7]

That is pretty much how I usually do it. Hope this helps, and thanks much for improving wikipedia. Feel free to drop me a note on my talkpage if you ever need anything, or if you want fast answers to quick questions, I highly recommend the friendly folks at WP:TEAHOUSE. p.s. Very jealous you got to be there in the 1960s to see it all.  :-)   Talk to you later. — 74.192.84.101 (talk) 23:10, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Harlem River, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Spuyten Duyvil (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Bill de Blasio[edit]

Thanks for your contribution. The information you added was unsourced and could be considered unpublished personal information, in violation of our WP:BLP policies. Accordingly, I have reverted your edit. Please let me know if you think I made a mistake. Pburka (talk) 00:34, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

RE: Was Rocco Scuiletti fired by his trucking company after the Kerry Kennedy incident?[edit]

Citations belong in the article. For details see WP:CITE. Putting the sources on my talk page is OK but inadequate to include the information unsourced in the article. 107.15.200.87 (talk) 15:01, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

RE: Is Jim Leavelle to the left or right of Oswald in the iconic photograph?[edit]

The caption doesn't say "Oswald's right". And standard procedure is to identify the subject from the viewer's perspective (e.g., "the orange is to the right of the apple"). 107.15.200.87 (talk) 18:11, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

The Bridge on the River Kwai[edit]

You've recently added over 200 words to a plot summary that was already too large. Plot summaries for feature films should be between 400 and 700 words. Please consider trimming as much as you have added so that other editors don't have to do it. Thanks. 107.15.200.87 (talk) 20:48, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

March 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Tiger Woods, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. 107.15.200.87 (talk) 23:38, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Ted Kennedy. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. 107.15.200.87 (talk) 23:15, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

RE: Do Robert and Charlene Spierer live in the Edgemont neighborhood of Scarsdale, New York?[edit]

You may think your personal experiences are better than reliable sources on Wikipedia, but Wikipedia policy requires reliable sources. You have been told this repeatedly, and you have edited Wikipedia long enough to know these kinds of policies. Other editors and I have given you links to these policies. I suggest reading them. This is not a blog. This is not your personal website. This is an encyclopedia. You basically have three choices: start sourcing your additions to Wikipedia, continue adding unsourced information and get blocked for doing so, or stop editing. Thank you. 107.15.200.87 (talk) 21:50, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
