NY fire tower renamings[edit]

Re your renaming: It is true that most of the other NY fire tower articles use the "Fire Observation Station" format. But here's the caveat to that: the state didn't name them that, the National Park Service did when the properties were listed on the National Register (The state has never, to my knowledge, given any of its firetowers, inside or outside the Forest Preserve, formal names).

This might seem a little idiosyncratic, but there is some logic to it. Unlike the other Catskill firetowers that have been listed on the Register (Balsam Lake Mountain, Red Hill and Mt. Tremper), the listing for Hunter's tower does not include the observer's cabin since it's of too recent (as of the late 1990s when it was listed) vintage (see source, p. 3 (if you've got JavaScript enabled, anyway)). Cf. Mt. Beacon Fire Observation Station, which I see you also renamed, and doesn't have any cabin at the site.

Yes, the NPS is not always consistent in the names it lists similar properties under. This has often bedeviled us at WP:NRHP. But, per our application of WP:NC and WP:ON, we have decided that, in the absence of another official name or a more widely-used common name, we use the NRHP name for the article title.

So, I'm afraid I'm going have to ask that you debold yourself and restore all the New York firetower articles to their original names, no matter how internally inconsistent that may be or seem to be. (I can't remember if you're an admin or not ... if the latter, I can reverse the moves if you need that). Daniel Case (talk) 18:18, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

In re: Mt. Beacon, I'm afraid I misnamed it from the beginning. Thanks for correcting it to be Mt. Beacon Fire Observation Tower.--Pubdog (talk) 01:23, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

The (?) Bartram's Bridge?[edit]

Why are you adding the "The"? As a native speaker of English, I have to say it sounds all wrong! Actually much stronger - it IS all wrong! Would you change it back or give me a precise explanation? Smallbones (talk) 22:51, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

It's the Bartram's Covered Bridge, but feel free to take out the "the" if that's what floats your boat. The "the" issue comes up once in a while in the various river articles. For example, most people refer to "the Delaware River," but not "the Crosswicks Creek, yet some will add the "the" to articles like the latter. Anyway, take it out if that makes you happy.

Honey Creek in Texas[edit]

FYI - to save us both from misunderstanding. I am currently working on an article about the various Honey Creeks in Texas. Complete with references. It might not be done today, but it will get there. At that time, I'll just convert the Honey Creek (Texas) from a redirect to the new page. Thank you for paying attention. I believe your edits were in good faith. — Maile (talk) 14:45, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Hydronymy[edit]

Hallo, I am interested in hydronymy as it looks the language of prehistoric Europe is reflected therein. I left a message on the wikiproject rivers talkpage, just looking for editors with similar interests to exchange information. I have discovered the so called old european hydronymy is not limited to Europe but has many correspondences in Iran, India and furhter away so I think this disproves the current scholarly etymological interpretations. Presently I am trying to research Bengal and Burma. Thanks for reading.Aldrasto11 (talk) 11:04, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Re: Recent Changes to Blackledge River[edit]

As a new contributor I have some trepidation about changing other contributor's work. In the past, I have seen many inaccuracies on Wikipedia that I have wanted to update. I finally jumped in and made this change because I had personal knowledge of the Blackledge River.

My Questions:

-Should I have attempted to contact someone before making the change?
No, what you did was fine.
-Was correcting the GPS coordinates using the referenced maps the correct way to document the Headwater location?
Yes, referenced sources work best.
-Is this message a good use of the talk page?
Sure, nice to meet you.
