Knoxville, Tennessee, Bleak House, and wikilinking[edit]

Hi, Baxterguy! Glad to see your contributions, especially your article-creation efforts.

Hint: When you create internal links to Wikipedia articles, please make sure that the link actually points to the intended article. The Bleak House links you are creating in the Knoxville article point to the Charles Dickens novel, not to Knoxville's Bleak House. If you create a Bleak House article for K'ville, you will need to give it a unique title (e.g., Bleak House (Knoxville)). Then you can link to it in the format [[Bleak House (Knoxville)|Bleak House]]. Until that's done, please don't linkify "Bleak House".

More hints: When you create new articles, do connect them with other articles via internal links and categories, and please cite some sources. I added some links and categories to your Robertsville article, but I don't know what source you used. The welcome message you received earlier has a link to lots of advice on article-writing -- do check it out.
--orlady 15:14, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello. Again, please don't put a link to Bleak House. That goes to a Charles Dickens novel, which is not in Knoxville. They're two different Bleak Houses. --AW 15:53, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
One other thing: Since it appears you're posting articles about historic homes in Tennessee, and since some of these are rather short and might be expanded with help from other editors, consider adding a {{Tennessee-struct-stub}} template at the end each article. I've already done this with your earlier articles. This lets editors know the category of the article, and that it needs to be expanded. If I can help, please let me know. Realkyhick 16:36, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Yep, just like that! Work on the sources that AW mentioned as you get time. Realkyhick 17:58, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Wow![edit]

Hi, thanks for creating articles for all those historic houses. Would you mind also putting where you got the information? You can put an sources section by typing ==Sources== and then put the web urls or books. Also, you ought to join the WikiProject Tennessee! We'd love to have you. Thanks --AW 17:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Regarding WikiProject Tennessee, those template tags are only supposed to go on article Talk pages, not the articles themselves. (One of many nuances that it takes a while for newcomers to figure out...)--orlady 21:43, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Hi Baxterguy, I responded on my talk page. But don't forget to sign your comments by clicking this Button sig2.png or by typing four tildes ~~~~. It will do this --AW 22:09, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

You might be able to enhance your articles about buildings by adding map links. I'm a novice at this, but here's what I think I know:

Template:Geolinks-US-buildingscale is supposed to create a set of links to various online maps of a building.
Here's an example of the code to use to add that template to an article's external links list: {{Geolinks-US-buildingscale|35.972882|-83.942161}}
That example code is for the generic Knoxville latitude and longitude; for a specific building you would have to substitute the accurate lat-long values.

Here's what that code generates (unfortunately, the map scale is not what I think it should be for a single building): 35°58′22″N 83°56′32″W / 35.972882°N 83.942161°W / 35.972882; -83.942161

PS - I commented on "Mabry Hood House" over on AWiseman's talk page.
--orlady 15:51, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

I wanted to start the stub articles, even though developing the articles will take me more time. I need to do some research on them, to ensure my information is precise - I don't want another architect to take issue with my terminology. I have driven by them so many times, and had relatives who have been in some of them, that it should be fun. I may try to take photos this summer of some of them, which should also help. --Baxterguy 17:58, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair enough! All in good time! Because several of those houses are places I have heard about, but whose locations I don't know, I thought that location maps might be worthwhile additions. --orlady 19:38, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Historic buildings[edit]

Hi Baxterguy, I was just wondering what you're using to find those historic houses - are they all on the National Register for example? --AW 20:21, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

I began by memory (as I am an architect born in Knoxville). I then found that almost all the buildings that I considered significant were on the National Register of Historic Places, with very few exceptions. (ie, The Baker Peters House is not, but a Civil War skirmish took place there, and it is an antebellum home.) So to answer your question, I "backed into" the list. I might create a separate page with a better breakdown, which would return the city page to it's former look and still give those into architecture - historic or otherwise- a resource. Whatdayouthink? --Baxterguy 17:01, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I think a separate list article is a good idea. List_of_Registered_Historic_Places_in_Tennessee#Knox_County would be a good starting point --AW 17:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, Awiseman. I have a busy weekend, but I'll try to start an offline draft by Sunday night. Hopefully, no one will delete the list before I can get the less prominent buildings transferred. --Baxterguy 20:41, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Indiana Additions[edit]

Thanks for your Indiana additions. However, some of your names leave a bit to be desired, so I'm renaming them. Thanks again.--Bedford 21:49, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

National Register of Historic Places articles[edit]

I see you've been creating a number of articles within the National Register of Historic Places. You might be interested in Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places, which works to improve coverage of buildings and structures listed on the National Register. From that project, you can find resources and Web links that may be helpful.

I've also written a few query tools for the National Register database. In particular, I wrote an infobox generator that generates the fields needed to populate {{Infobox_nrhp}}. You might also be interested in the National Historic Landmarks program. Some of the properties on the National Register are National Historic Landmarks, which is a higher designation than just being listed on the National Register. Finally, there's the Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record, which has pictures and data sheets on many properties on the National Register. Happy editing! --Elkman (Elkspeak) 16:19, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Great work, and a note about headings[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all the work you've been doing in creating the articles about historic places in Knoxville! One thing -- I noticed you just changed all the headings in the main article about NRHP sites to headline-style capitalization. The Wikipedia Manual of Style section on headings actually says that headings should work like sentences, with only the first word and proper nouns capitalized. I'll fix the article, but I wanted to let you know why before I changed it. Pinball22 15:26, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the changes. --Baxterguy 14:56, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Also, a question about Boyd Harvey House -- it says the original house has a hip room. I'm guessing that was supposed to be a hip roof, but I wanted to make sure there's not something called a hip room that I haven't heard of. :) If that's right, what kind of roof does the addition have? (I'm trying to make the text in that part flow better.) Pinball22 16:04, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

The oldest portion of the house has a "hip roof", so that needs to be corrected. The later addition has a "gable roof". --Baxterguy 14:56, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Ocatgonal buildings[edit]

You may be interested in Talk:List of octagonal buildings and structures. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 11:01, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Category:Octagon-Shaped Buildings[edit]

I see that the category you created: Category:Octagon-Shaped Buildings was deleted. I still believe we should be able to list buldings by shape. We have Category:Rotundas and Category:Basilicas. I think I will create Category:Buildings and structures by shape. Would it be possible to somehow include octagonal buildings in Rotundas, or should we somehow try to recreate the category? -- Petri Krohn 01:47, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

We had an on-going debate on that category that you may want to read on pages proposed for deletion. Octagon-shaped buildings were a 19th Century American trend - a fad or movement. That is not true of most building shapes (ie, the Acropolis is not significant for being a rectangle, but Longwood/Natchez is significant for being an octagon.) Before initiating a buildings and structures by shape, you may want to discuss it on the architecture forum. --Baxterguy 14:00, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

That was an excellent edit. I wrote the first draft when I realized there was no wikipedia article on him, but you improved it greatly. --Baxterguy 11:45, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Recreating deleted article[edit]

Hi - this may not have been intentional, but you recreated a deleted article on Shadow Mountain Community Church. The article was deleted after discussion here. If you want to re-create it, please consider working on it in your userspace until it has enough in the way of sources to establish notability. Alternately, you can go to deletion review and request that the deletion be undone. MastCell Talk 21:22, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Thomas J. Walker House[edit]

I understand that this house had very minor notability, because it was on the NRHP list, but it's been removed, because the house is no longer there. I propose that it's not notable, so...

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Thomas J. Walker House, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.
