      • Anybody interested? From time to time, as employment requirements permit (and I take a break from researching and writing about amusement parks from about a century ago - don't get me wrong. I enjoy it, but it's a long, tiring challenge), I plan to add a series of list articles, each on the professional (American) football teams from a given city. Anybody interested in this project is recommended to see my plans at User:B.Wind/List of professional American football teams in (city). B.Wind (talk) 04:44, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

"When you fight an asshole, the asshole always wins."[edit]

Did you have any specific Wikipedia editors in mind when you posted this on your User page, or is it just a coincidence that SPUI seems determined to win at all costs? Where did you find that quotation? It's great! 147.70.242.39 00:50, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Actually, it's an original that I first posted in my www.xanga.com quotation page. The story behind it I'd rather not mention here, but I assure you that although it might fit that "certain Wikipedia author" (in which I would jokingly say "You win" immediately after saying that to him - if it weren't for his being most highly unreasonable in the revert wars that involve us). But I wouldn't say specifically who it is as it could violate WP:CIVIL and WP:NPA, although he doesn't believe either of them apply to him. B.Wind 04:53, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

There's much more to do, but it makes a nice break from writing road articles and getting in the middle of some hand-to-hand combat with a few of the more opinionated editors (and one in particular) who think they own all the road articles.

Blow blow blow[edit]

Good work. Don't let them scold you, though. It's irresponsible to let a piece of crap sit around just so someone can claim faim with a process. Edit it when it stinks. The fewer hours or days or weeks any piece of crap is accepted on Wikiepdia the better the whole thing is.

There's a lot of scolding going on, though, on Wikipedia. I think there are a lot of people who don't socialize outside of cyberspace and seem to think that adults working together scold each other. I call it the daddy syndrome. Only time I've ever seen it used outside of cyberspace (one adult scolding another for a minor grammar matter) it brought days of laughter--as it should. --Blechnic (talk) 01:02, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Ref: Rail transport in Argentina[edit]

Hey B.Wind, thanks for quick response, I'm not sure if a should answer here, anyway I'm still in doubts about Rail transport in Argentina, it still redirects to Transportation in Argentina, it seems that Rail transport in Argentina has not been released. I consider mysef a good editor but not really "protocol saby. We would like to canalize all rail articles into one, as other countries, Argentina is experiencing a rail revival, Will it be bold? it'll be spectacular, we have a good team. Kind regards ~ Moebiusuibeom-en (talk) 00:53, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Moebius, if you have an overall article covering Rail transport in Argentina, go ahead and write it (with sources) - that's what WP:BOLD says. For the other articles that you mentioned, put them in [[Category:Rail transport in Argentina]] and you'll be fine. Redirect pages are not "released" - but unless they are protected, and I didn't see any protection on this one, they can be overwritten easily. Just write the article after clicking "edit this page." I hope this helps... and happy writing! B.Wind (talk) 01:04, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
  • …OK, "think" i got it, will get back on monday if i have any problems, the other articles are just links, thanks and happy weekend! ~ Moebiusuibeom-en (talk) 02:29, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Hey you all, in regards to "Rail transport in Argentina", something that seemed so hard turned out to be so simple, Rail transport in Argentina is on it's way, thank you all for being so cooperative,, Moebiusuibeom-en (talk) 03:33, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem :) I added the FCC related information to the infobox, added the page to the Flint area radio template and added it to the List of radio stations in Michigan page.

Adrienne Warshawski[edit]

I completely agree with the banners you put up now. How did you run into this article? It seems to be in a little invisible corner of Wikipedia. Debresser (talk) 09:31, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Whenever I run into a little "writer's block" (I like to write about old professional American football teams and leagues, old amusement parks - mainly those named Luna Park - and, until the Wikipedia politics went bad there, Florida State Roads), I visit WP:RfD and go on prod patrol (the link to the appropriate category is on the bottom of WP:AfD). I think I've checked out about 300 articles or so over the past 10 days. Any way I can make a quick remedy, I tend to be bold... but most of the time I defer to those who know more than I. If something is salvageable, I hope the tags will be enough of a prod (pardon the pun) to move it in the right direction. B.Wind (talk) 03:20, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Roza Gough[edit]

I see you nominated the article for deletion, so I guess I'm just here to say thanks for the saving me the hassle! Haha. I was mulling over nominating it myself, but you beat me to the punch. And just to add: thanks for mentioning the WP:2S rule in the nomination. I so wish I had learned of this rule months ago.  Mbinebri  talk ← 15:21, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Actually, it's an essay of mine, but I've stated it (and its cousin WP:1S) numerous times in deletion discussions. I wouldn't mind it being a rule, but it seems that there are too many fans of one- or two-sentence "articles" to make it a guideline or a policy. Thank you for telling me that I'm not alone in this. B.Wind (talk) 17:25, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
    • You're definitely not alone! In fact, the question of whether a one- or two-sentence article should be kept is very relevant to what I do on Wiki - which is clean up fashion model articles and either verify their notability or nominate them for deletion. Tina Zajc is a perfect example of running into this problem. She won a somewhat notable title, but is a statement of simply that enough to have an article? I don't think so.  Mbinebri  talk ← 17:46, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
      • Well, guess what just went on the prod pile? Let's see what happens in the next few days. B.Wind (talk) 18:00, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
        • The prod was contested, so that didn't really work out! Of course, none of what the editor added contributed to any sense of notability, but I have the feeling that if such an article had been taken to the AfD instead (where the rationale for deletion would have been analyzed), editors would have just reiterated the policy that an article being very short isn't justification for deletion, which is unfortunate.  Mbinebri  talk ← 03:47, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
          • Well, it did in one sense. The article is now (at least) a valid stub. It actually has substance, unlike that one sentence sliver that existed when I prodded it. At least now it's defensible. While I'm not sure that being Miss Slovenia one year meets to notability bar (and merely participating in Miss World clearly is not), and this goes into hobbies that are irrelevant, I would only urge further cleanup and expansion at this point. The additional sources (even though three of them are in Slovenian) are certainly a plus. I'm adding a couple of tags, though. B.Wind (talk) 04:37, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

WP:RfD Thread[edit]

I have went through the user's contribs and came up with about 160+ other redirects, some dating back to February, before the stations were required to switch to digital and before the FCC ruling that allowed stations to change their callsign to -DT officially. Please see here for the complete list. - NeutralHomerTalk • 02:16, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I applaud the diligence, but WP:CRYSTAL no longer applies. Only those stations who transmit only analog signals would have a valid "reason" for redirect deletion per WP:RFD#KEEP as "-DT" variations are being used in promotional materials, legal identifications, and the like in the same way that extraneous "-AM"s and "-FM"s are often added to radio call signs. While you are technically correct, this is a case in which the "-DT" variants would be likely search items (and thus useful ones). I strongly urge withdrawing the bulk nomination and resubmitting any that are analog-only in nature (note that we now have digital Class A and low power stations, as well). B.Wind (talk) 02:26, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
    • See all the stations broadcast in digital, they have to. But they are not required to carry the "-DT" call sign. Like WTOV-TV, it broadcasts in digital, but has a "-TV" callsign. WTVQ-DT broadcasts in digital, but has a "-DT" callsign. It was essentially up to the station whether they wanted to go with the "-DT" callsign or not. Per naming convensions, we name the pages as the FCC names the station. Which is where my main concern comes in, I fear readers will think the station carries a different callsign then what is showed, hence my RfD. Remember, an RfD, is just for discussion, not deletion. - NeutralHomerTalk • 02:48, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
  • The articles themselves should have the offical calls - no disagreement there - but the issue is the redirect (note that per WP:RfD, every nominated redirect must be tagged with {{rfd}} - you've just started!). I think that you're going down a path that doesn't need to be traveled, and the mass nomination could do more harm than good here. Making sure that the article is in the right place is far more important than asking everybody if these dozens of now-commonly-discussed/used "unofficial" names would make worthwhile redirects. FYI, WSVN actually shows both WSVN-TV and WSVN-DT on its promotional literature, its Web site, and its broadcast legal identification. This is merely one of many examples of using multiple suffixes by the station itself, and that must be accounted for by Wikipedia, if only by the addition of redirects. B.Wind (talk) 03:05, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
    • I asked on IRC and was told to nominate one and then bulk the others...I did that here. I don't feel like RfD'ing the whole lot of 160+ articles....that would be beyond my time. Let's just let the discussion take its course and see where it goes. If it gets to a point where it looks like I am on the "losing end" of things, I will withdraw it. - NeutralHomerTalk • 03:21, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Fair enough. Keep up the good work in the meantime! B.Wind (talk) 03:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I just closed Electric Parks' RfD as "keep and make into a disambig page". I read your note, and I'll perform any sort of admin move for your work, if needed. Just leave me a note on my talk page describing what you need me to do, for this close. I would've moved User:B.Wind/sandbox1 to Electric Park, but it appears that you have two separate pages going on in that sandbox. Let me know what you want to do.

I Saw Your NPOV Tag On the William Clay Ford, Sr. Article[edit]

As crappy an owner that you may think that he is, (and I agree in many respects with this sentiment) there is one thing that I have to give him — however grudgingly — credit for. He payed for that stadium in Detroit with private funds; he didn't waddle up to the public trough the way most of those obscene owners do.

Welcome back! Oh by the way...[edit]

Long time no see, BW - the place (especially the early pro football section) seemed empty without you.

Now, I have a favor to ask - while I was on Special:ShortPages patrol I found about a dozen malformed redirects posing as "list articles" and prodded them. Since they were quickly removed with no improvement whatsoever, will you kindly nominate them at WP:AfD for me? Clearly list articles with only one item in each of them do not belong here, and I'm sure you'd agree with me on that.

Short and distort[edit]

There is no possible way that the house organ of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce[1], "Free Enterprise" could be considered a reliable source. It is a self-published source, replicating the views of its CEO, Mr. Donohue. If Mr. Donohue were quoted in a reliable source on this subject, it would be a different matter. It does not even remotely satisfy the requirements of WP:RS. I don't see how you can seriously claim that it does.

The other passage is not supported by the source that you proffer, which is this[2]. I'll replicate this post on the talk page of the article. That paragraph is pure original research. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.23.226.239 (talk) 04:00, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Delray Beach Political Machine[edit]

This is being sent from DelrayFLWriter in reply to your request for speedy deletion of the page for Delray Beach Political Machine. Per the requests made, more verifiable references have been added. In regard to it being a political hit page, it is relevant historical data important for case studies about politics, elections and racism. There is numerous documentation about the African American race being disenfranchised from participating in the political voting process which is problematic on a national level which starts on the local level in places like Delray Beach, FL. Not all Encyclopedic information is pleasant nor pretty. Some facts maybe harsh but true. Like wise, the Holocaust, Hitler, Jim Crow, Slavery are all unpleasant and cast negative light on elected officials yet the information is true. The Enyclopedic page of The Machine in Delray Beach is just as noteoworthy as the page about The Machine at the University of Alabama. These pages both provide relevant case study information. To add, all information posted on the page for the Delray Beach Political Machine is documented in many, many news stories. Those news stories have been added to the reference section. All information on that page is true, factual and encyclopedic. Your consideration is appreciated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DelrayFLWriter (talkcontribs) 01:41, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Postscript - article was deleted five hours after the above posting - admin agreed with my assessment of it being an attack page (the prose was hardly NPOV), speedy deletion category G10 covers it in this case. While all the information presented could be supported by reliable sources, the tone of the prose was the real reason for the deletion. Although I didn't mention it in my concerns about the article, I was also concerned that this wasn't notable enough for inclusion in an encyclopedia with an international scope and readership. Delray Beach (population 64,150) is not exactly Chicago (population 2.9 million) or even Hialeah (230,000). B.Wind (talk) 06:57, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Guangzhou Province‎[edit]

There is no Guangzhou Province‎, and the City of Guangzhou is not a provincial-level city. I can assume some might assume that it could be one, however. So I created the page by mistake, thinking that the city of Guangdong was in Guangzhou Province, and someone has forgotten to add a redirect to Guangzhou from Guangzhou Province. In fact, the city of Guangzhou is in the province of Guangdong.

So, you might think it better to delete the redirect, especially since Guangzhou is not a provincial-level city. But I don't think there's a great need to do so.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Fleetham (talkcontribs) 21:25, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Thank you for the update. Since you created the redirect, you have the option of speedy deletion by tagging it with {{db-author}} if/when you change your mind. On the other hand, we keep redirects if they are plausible search items and/or foreseeable typos. So even though it's technically wrong, I don't plan on contesting it, either. I defer to those who know better (probably much so) than I. I restored the redirect only because it appeared foreseeable to me... but then again, I'm no such authority.

yyyy in Italy articles[edit]

Ok, I see why you would delete them, but I would like you to consider this request. Since many countries such as England have the same sort of aim, I think that possibly from 1000 - 1800 we should have decades or centuries (i.e. Years of the 1600s in Italy), rather than an individual article. I just created the pages to have them grow. Could you possibly redirect them.--Theologiae (talk) 10:08, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Point answered in deletion discussion. It's better to start with the pages over wider intervals (by decades or half centuries), then split things off as they become unwieldy. Suggestion: if there are {{prod}} signs on multiple articles of a series, don't just remove them: address the issues mentioned in the tags before removing them.

    • B.Wind, Please revisit this . I did 4 or 5 for 1300 in a few minutes tonight. I can easily do the others. I think this is exactly what you asked for. Articles have to begin somewhere. DGG ( talk ) 08:09, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
While we're at it, I've also found these one-item "lists" by the same editor:
1686 in Italy - added four entries
1402 in Italy - added two more (one redlink, though)
1339 in Italy
1287 in Italy
1285 in Italy - already listed at AfD
:1241 in Italy
1177 in Italy
1179 in Italy
1176 in Italy
1167 in Italy
1156 in Italy
1137 in Italy
1132 in Italy
1123 in Italy
These clearly present a problem for Wikipedia. If they get expanded, I see no problem (I also found about a dozen "lists" with only two entries, but I noticed you didn't include any two-item lists in your nomination). All of these are in dire need of custodianship or deletion. Theologiae, instead of pumping these out as if you're trying to meet a deadline, could you kindly cultivate them so they have enough substance to keep? At least get the help of WP:WikiProject Italy and put its tag on the talk page of each of your list articles... 147.70.242.54 (talk) 17:52, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
right-- it is always a problem when people make borderline minimal stubs. If you start with the regular series for the year, 1345 or whatever, and also 1345 in art, you will always find at least 2 in Italy. Actually, I think they are defensible even with one item--I think it is easier to add items, than to divide a decade article, but other people don't agree, so why look for trouble? DGG ( talk ) 18:36, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
What a mess - thank you both for expanding the articles that are nominated and the above list that my IP friend has produced (I put WikiProject tags for each of these). DGG, I have no objection to any of these provided that they are not one-item lists (I'll see if I can do any of these tomorrow as I'm doing this after a 16 hour workday). I'll have to check the AfD discussion later and update accordingly. B.Wind (talk) 05:50, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
essentially all have been none at this point. I have never encountered a year of the high middle ages or later in any major country of Western Europe that could not easily be expanded to several items using information just in Wikipedia. I assume you now want to withdraw the nomination--if someone would care to do a bot, we could populate all these articles automatically. DGG ( talk ) 08:30, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree, DGG - thanks to you and IP. I'll wander over to the AfD and withdraw all nominations - and hope the editors who initially supported the nomination will follow suit and support the withdrawal. IP and I (mostly IP) got the WikiProject tags in place on all the articles of the series, too.B.Wind (talk) 15:51, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

oldrfd on Talk:Filibuster (United States Senate)‎[edit]

You recently added an {{oldrfd}} tag to Talk:Filibuster (United States Senate)‎. The redirect that was nominated was Filibuster in United States‎, which redirects to Filibuster (United States Senate)‎.

The endless revert thing[edit]

Hi, Just an FYI that the person who created Rancho Carrillo keeps reverting the merge/redirect you placed on the article redirecting it to Carlsbad, CA. I figured that you'd want to know. The content is identical to that in the main article, and this is getting rather old. I left a comment on the person's talk page, but if they persist, I really don't have that big an axe to grind about the article (I had just tagged it while on new page patrol), but it's getting tiresome that the editor isn't getting it. Want to watchlist it and spare me a 3RR problem? Thanks Montanabw(talk) 02:21, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Will do. If the other editor violates 3RR, I'll see what I can do... B.Wind (talk) 04:33, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
It's a very slow 3RR, but I'd like the issue to be over so I can get the thing off my watchlist, sigh... ;-D Montanabw(talk) 18:42, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, if he/she/it persists, I might just AfD it and be done with it... and I loathe the AfD process. B.Wind (talk) 02:09, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion contested: Engill Ræður För[edit]

Hello B.Wind, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Engill Ræður För, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A9 doesn't apply, since there is an article about the artist Bubbi Morthens. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 13:07, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Little Red Riding Hood (Disney)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Little Red Riding Hood (Disney). We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Little Red Riding Hood (Disney). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.--mono 03:31, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Creative Control (music company)[edit]

Since you objected to a prod on this article after an Afd, I would appreciate your comment on the Afd itself Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Creative Control (music company) (2nd nomination) The first Afd was closed (WP:NPASR) under the rubric no debate may be relisted more than twice, however, the two relistings were within an hour and twenty minutes of each other, (Apparently there was a cache problem somewhere.) and the AfD was closed the same day as the two relistings. The total Afd ran a few minutes less than one week, from 21:36, 24 March 2010, to 21:19, 31 March 2010. I don't believe that this request violates the spirit of Wikipedia:Canvassing, but if it does, please let me know. Thanks. --Bejnar (talk) 04:18, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

You recently deleted/redirected the article Kendal Nagorcka and Libby Campbell for no reason.I find this vandalism as the articles in question are Wikified and up to standards.If you try to remove these articles again, you will be reported.Matt-tastic (talk) 02:42, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

  • I redirected them because they did not demonstrate any notability whatsoever. Add citations and actual information supporting their notability and they will be left alone if they meet Wikipedia guidelines for inclusion. Do not threaten me - see what I'm trying to do instead. Oh, you should check what Wikipedia defines as WP:Vandalism as I do not vandalize (did anybody tell you about WP:Assume good faith?). B.Wind (talk) 14:25, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

I do not see how these actors/actresses are 'One Liners'.If you have seen the programme, you would know they are/were both main characters and Kendal Nagorcka has appeared in many TV programmes,Musicals and Films.I would happy for you to put in up for community discussion and you could find out how wrong you are.Thank YouMatt-tastic (talk) 06:22, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

  • You recently redirected the article Kendal Nagorcka again.You claim that it all of the proffered citations are from promotional (not WP:RS) sites and fansites - thus this still does not meet WP:BIO)however the majority of the sites are not promotional or fansites and by the section WP:ANYBIO2.The person has made a widely recognized contribution that is part of the enduring historical record in his or her specific field and since Kendal Nagorcka has made a widely recongnized contribution the article stands as a biography suited to wikipedia.Matt-tastic (talk) 06:22, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Deprodding prods on disambig pages[edit]

Hi, B.Wind. Why did you deprod Another World Is Possible? -- JHunterJ (talk) 17:49, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

  • I thought it would be better to get the community to participate in a deletion discussion than have it deleted without discussion. As you undoubtedly know, the Wikipedia community has a wide variety of viewpoints from the strictest of interpretations of WP:DAB to the broadest. I tend to fall somewhere in the middle (and in fact, have not yet made up my mind as to whether the dab page deserved deletion - or even conversion to a list article), and this is one time in which I wanted an article/page not to be tripped up by WP:CONLIMITED. B.Wind (talk) 04:56, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
    OK. I just wanted to make sure you aren't removing the prods just because it's a dab page. I had seen a couple recently. Thanks for the explanation. Cheers! -- JHunterJ (talk) 10:55, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Re: Speedy for "Hilda Madsen" and the bot[edit]

Hey. Got a CSD notice about this one - was confused as I thought I'd already tagged it for {{db-redirtypo}}, but no biggie. Moreover, the redirect was the result of a page move to a more canonical name (particularly that name, sans quotes) - is there a way you can get that bot to check for if the redirect was the result of a move? --Dennis The Tiger (Rawr and stuff) 23:07, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

  • I don't operate any bots. I've had bots "follow me" and notify people whom I had also notified myself (sometimes a couple of days after the fact). To check to see if the redirect is the result of a move, click onto the redlink and you'll see the logs for the page (I have just done this for "Hilda" Madsen" and noticed that you have been "credited" with the move three days before the redirect was deleted).

Okra versus Orca[edit]

Hi, just wanted to point out that in this edit you made Orka redirect to Orca (notice the different spelling). I'm only pointing it out to be sure that is what you think is best. If it is, great, no need to pay any more attention to this. 018 (talk) 14:04, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

I can't speak for B.Wind, but I imagine it was because Orka was ProD'ed (as you know), and rather than letting it die (as it should've) B.Wind saw it as a reasonably likely misspelling of Orca, what with the hard "C" and all, and redirected. Seems perfectly reasonable. ~ Amory (utc) 15:53, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
You're both right - I redirected it as a probable misspelling as the prodded article was spammy but without substance, but the dab page also had the article mentioned in the hatnote (I'm not opposed to moving Orka (comics) to Orka as the primary use, provided that a hatnote points from the article to the dab page). B.Wind (talk) 17:21, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
I'd suggest leaving "Orka (comics)" where it is. It already has other hatnote, and it is linked from the the Orca dab page, so I think we are okay as is. Glad you thought about this, I just wanted to make sure that happened. I know when one is cleaning it can get difficult to dot all the 'i's. 018 (talk) 20:34, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
Works fine with me. B.Wind (talk) 20:39, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Luna Park[edit]

Thank you for your genial response to a beginner. I originally was just interested in putting the park (in the basement of a shopping mall near me) in Haifa, as someone seems to have thought it was near and not in the city. I would much rather they be closed on the Sabbath, but I thought I should clarify the issue, as the entry appeared to imply it stayed closed on the Sabbath (the point of the boycott). (BTW, the part about the reopening needs a citation.) (I also think "Grand Canyon" is a cute pun, but I guess it makes it too long.) So although I will probably go to the park again, I don't really feel like giving them the publicity. BTW, I may have visited the original Luna Park as a child. Thank you again, and happy editing!Mzk1 (talk) 19:45, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
