Please do not change date format in article with military subject and references[edit]

The article New York Port of Embarkation is a military subject with almost all references using the dmy format. Your changes even changed the designation of certain War Department directives. I am currently going back and fixing all those changes to dmy format to be consistent with references and format of military subject articles. Palmeira (talk) 19:29, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

If it's how military articles are structured, then OK, I'm fine with that. – Epicgenius (talk) 19:45, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes, dmy is the military format and I am in a long process of completely revising this one from a mistaken "just the port of New York" sort of idea to the reality that Army Ports of Embarkation were Army commands, not "a port," with authority and facilities far beyond a particular harbor or port facility. This morning I am starting a complete reorganization of existing text with a new introduction. Long term, possible, result will be a new article on the ports in general and then working on at least the other major ports at San Francisco, Hampton Roads and so on. Then the general stuff in NYPOE would migrate there with specifics remaining. NYPOE is the target now since it was the largest, earliest, and developed a number of concepts used later.

Okay. Thanks. I thought it was a little weird and counterintuitive earlier given the setting of this article, but I'm fine with it. – Epicgenius (talk) 13:32, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Kingsbridge Road (IND Concourse Line)[edit]

Hello Epicgenius,

I'd like you to check my edit. I am not sure it's totally correct. Thanks in advance. Vcohen (talk) 12:28, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

@Vcohen: There aren't any problems. I trust you know what you're doing, but in case if you are asking about the mezzanine, it does indeed exist at that location, and the mezzanine is the same level as the underpass. The underpass does not need mention. Epicgenius (talk) 15:42, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
OK, I will ask more specifically. Is it correct to write Exit/Entrance on the mezzanine level? Is it correct to enumerate the mezzanines as M1 and M2? Vcohen (talk) 15:56, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
That is a hard dilemma, as NYC subway station levels don't have exact lettered or numbered designations. You can write "Upper Mezzanine" and "Lower Mezzanine" instead. Epicgenius (talk) 16:27, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Vcohen (talk) 17:26, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

bot question[edit]

Hi Epicgenius, can you adjust the bot to archive several of the threads? Thanks. SW3 5DL (talk) 19:34, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

It appears that the bot hasn't archived the page since 1 November. So I have manually archived the threads. Epicgenius (talk) 19:37, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

@Tux peng: I don't see where we could have interacted. In fact, I can't see any other edits that you have made. Can you please tell me the page you're talking about? Epicgenius (talk) 20:49, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
@Epicgenius:Sorry, I should have mentioned. I edited lincity from the IP address 24.49.205.47
Oh, That was a mistake. In this case, I have reverted it. Epicgenius (talk) 21:03, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
