Waggoner Ranch[edit]

Hello. I am trying to understand what this picture you took is. Is it a small prison or store that was on the ranch and has been moved to the museum in Lubbock? If so, I'd like to add it to the page I've just created about the Waggoner Ranch. However, I am not sure. Is there a weblink that explains what it is on the website of the museum that you could find? Your picture on Wikimedia Commons is great, but has no further explanations. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 05:18, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't remember this photo. I will try to refresh my memory in the next day or two. Billy Hathorn (talk) 20:47, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Webb County, Texas may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • '''Marco Montemayor''' (no relation to Mike Montemayor), who unseated Anna Laura Cavazos Ramirez), proposed that Mike Montemayor be suspended and denied his pay pending a hearing set for July 1

Disambiguation link notification for November 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kent Plantation House, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Artifact and Bottle tree. 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.

Duplicate pages[edit]

Just an FYI that I recently found two duplicate pages you created. A few days ago, you created Ron Reynolds (Texas politician). That's a duplicate of Ron Reynolds (Texas), which has been a page since November 2013. I then found that on December 1 of this year, you created two duplicate pages back-to-back, the only difference being the spelling of the page titles. They were Koni Burton and Konni Burton (I'm not sure what happened here since you created them both on the same day). I appreciate your contributions to Wikipedia but think it would be wise if you did a more thorough search for existing articles before creating new ones. Champaign Supernova (talk) 05:25, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

I created the Dec. 12 article Ron Reynolds (Texas politician) but not the short one Ron Reynolds (politician) from November 2013. I did not find the short one when I created the new one. I left a message on the talk page explaining that. The correct spelling is Konni Burton. The first one "Koni" was a typo. I also explained that on the talk page. I do not know how to correct such mistakes. Perhaps you know how to throw out the two that should be dropped. Thank you and my apology for the errors.Billy Hathorn (talk) 11:23, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I see that you explained the typo in the article's title (Koni Burton) on the talk page, but no one was going to see that because it was a newly created article. It wasn't on anyone's watch list. If something like this happens in the future, I think you should go to the Wikipedia help page, the village pump, or the talk page of an administrator and explain the situation. Then it can be handled swiftly by someone who knows what to do. As for Ron Reynolds, if you Google "Ron Reynolds Texas," both of our Wikipedia pages on him come up. That tells me that if you'd done that prior to creating your article on him, you would have found that we already have one via a quick Google search. When you're going to create an article in the future, in addition to looking for a pre-existing article on Wikipedia, I'd recommend using a search engine. If you'd looked on this page first (Texas House of Representatives), you also would have seen that Ron Reynolds was already linked to an existing article before you created yours.

Duplicate Articles[edit]

Please do not create duplicate articles about the same person using different forms of their name, such as Koni Burton and Konni Burton, both of which you created this month. That is not the way that Wikipedia handles name issues. We use Redirects instead. Creating duplicate articles inevitably introduces discrepancies, as different edits are made to different articles. Considerable work is then required to merge the articles. You also created an article Ron Reynolds (Texas politician) that appears to be a copy of Ron Reynolds (Texas). Please read about redirects and use them rather than creating duplicate articles. Robert McClenon (talk) 15:26, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Ron Reynolds (Texas politician) is full article; Ron Reynolds (politician) is or was a short stub. I did not know the stub existed when I created the article. The Konni Burton article was mistakenly put there twice, after "Koni" was mistyped the first time. I could not get the redirect to work for the Burton article.
