Category for Portland Historic Landmarks[edit]

Do you think there should be a category for Portland Historic Landmarks? --Another Believer (Talk) 05:05, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Probably not. I have trouble seeing that anyone would come to Wikipedia looking for articles on PDXHLs. Far more likely, such a person would be looking for NRHP articles in PDX, and that need is already covered by categories. Those two sets are nearly (though not quite) identical anyhow. — Ipoellet (talk) 16:08, 22 August 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:26, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia Takes Portland 2013![edit]

HistoricPlacesNationalRegisterPlaque.JPG WIKIPEDIA TAKES PORTLAND 2013!
You're invited to participate in the upcoming "Wikipedia Takes Portland" campaign, to be held during the month of September. The local campaign occurs annually in conjunction with Wikipedia Takes America and Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States. Photographing sites included on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the main focus of Wikipedia Takes Portland. In typical Wikipedia fashion, you can work individually or create a team.
Details and signup here!

Thanks for your newly-uploaded images of NRHP sites in Portland--great work! This photo campaign might be right up your alley... feel free to sign up and/or share your NRHP work during the month of September on the Wikipedia Takes Portland 2013 page. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:58, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Albers Brothers Milling Company[edit]

I saw a draft article in your sandbox for the above building. Just letting you know that an article has already been started. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:43, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Oh! Perhaps I should have checked when the sandbox was last edited. I just wanted to avoid having to merge or delete duplicate entries. Thanks for responding! Keep up the great work you do here at Wikipedia. --Another Believer (Talk) 22:08, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

For your many quality contributions to this year's Wikipedia Takes Portland campaign. We should all be proud of the new photographs uploaded, along with the NRHP articles that were created and updated in the process. Thank you! Another Believer (Talk) 15:12, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Winner of the State traveler category in the NRHP Fall 2013 Photo Contest[edit]

I hereby award this barnstar to you for photographing the most distant two sites within one state during the NRHP Fall 2013 Photo Contest. You photographed two sites in Oregon that are 505 miles apart. Many states don't even have two buildings that far apart! Royalbroil 04:44, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

NRHP - Puerto Rico[edit]

Hi. You recently made edits to National Register of Historic Places listings in southern Puerto Rico. In particular THIS one (NRHP = 13000013 [Casa Vives]) and THIS one (NRHP = 13000638 [Edificio Empresas Ferre] and 13000639 [Edificio Municipal de la Playa de Ponce]). However, I cannot find any documentation in the NHRP focus database to attest to these new entries. I have been creating articles on the NRHP sites in Ponce and would like to do the same with those 3 recent entries you made. Can you tell me what source you used for your entries? Thanks. Mercy11 (talk) 19:06, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Bitar Mansion / Harry Green House[edit]

Do you have a ref to verify the house's NRHP designation? If so, please post on the article's talk page. Thank you much! --Another Believer (Talk) 22:33, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. --Another Believer (Talk) 02:42, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Neighborhood boundaries[edit]

I have to say, I am a fan of your photography and I also find the maps you create for historic districts very helpful. If you ever have the time or interest, it would be really great to have similar maps for Portland neighborhoods (especially since there are articles and categories for many of them). --Another Believer (Talk) 04:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Clarification: I am referring to non-NRHP neighborhoods, like Laurelhurst, Irvington, Brooklyn, Woodstock, etc. --Another Believer (Talk) 04:21, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Petersen Rock Garden[edit]

... was added to the NRHP on 10/30/13. I updated the article accordingly, but perhaps you know of other/better ways to improve newly-listed sites. Thanks! --Another Believer (Talk) 20:51, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Adding items to NRHP lists[edit]

Hi, I see you've been adding new items to NRHP lists recently. Thanks for the hard work keeping our lists up to date! I notice, however, that when you're adding lists, you seem to be manually remembering all the tables. If you have some other system to do this, that's fine, but I just wanted to bring this script to your attention if you didn't know about it. The way it works is it puts a button labelled "Renumber list" at the top of any NRHP list, and if you click on it, it will automatically edit the page to fix the numbering. It shortens the time to add a new listing because you can just add the listing in alphabetical order without caring what number it's supposed to be, then save the page and click the button. When you reload the page, the numbering should be fixed! :). Feel free to ignore this message if you don't want to install the script, but I just wanted to lend a helping hand that might save you a lot of time in the future. If you want to add the script simply add the text

importScript('User:Dudemanfellabra/ReorderNRHPlist.js')

to User:Ipoellet/common.js and bypass your cache to see the button show up. Thanks again for the hard work!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 06:42, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Kenton Commercial Historic District and East Skinner Butte Historic District[edit]

Hi Ipoellet, given your interest in both photography and NRHP sites, I thought I would direct you to this request and these links for two WikiProject Oregon campaigns, in case you are interested in helping:

Thanks! --Another Believer (Talk) 23:39, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Refnums in NRHP row[edit]

Just wanted to point your attention to this edit. If you include comments in the refnum parameter, it will mess up the code for the link. Instead, multiple reference numbers should be in a list separated by commas with the one you want to be displayed first, e.g. |refnum=12345678, 87654321, ....--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 21:18, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

I defer to your expertise that using comments in that way could cause logic problems (the code is far too dense for my limited expertise to step through). However, cases where I've used comments within the refnum parameter (predating your insertion of NPSFocus links into the template) have turned out fine: for example see the rows for Simon Benson House and Ladd Carriage House in SW Portland. I also have a concern with your CSL syntax because it denies editors the opportunity to offer additional context such as why there are multiple refnums.
Anyhow, thanks for addressing your concerns with my edit in a collaborative way, by considering the merits of what I did, making narrow adjustments, and discussing with me. Far too many editors would simply revert and move on. I don't always agree with your editorial opinions (that would be kind of unlikely for any two editors), but you always engage in the editorial process really well. — Ipoellet (talk) 16:33, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Hmm it seems you're correct. I guess comments are parsed differently than I thought they were. I was under the impression that they were passed to the templates and then ignored, not the other way around. I was wrong. I've edited the documentation now to suggest both.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 18:55, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

How'd you notice this?[edit]

Thanks for this fix; I simply copy/pasted the Motor Townsite line and changed everything except the refnum. But how did you discover the mistake? Did it show up in one of Dudemanfellabra's auto-generated error pages? Nyttend (talk) 00:23, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Abert Lake Petroglyphs[edit]

Saw your article on Abert Lake Petroglyphs. While you rated it a Stub, I think you effectively summarized everything that's known about that site. FYI, I know where one of the two petroglyph boulders is located and will get a photo next time I'm down that way. Will also look for the other boulder while I’m there. It’s supposed to be within 700 ft of the first, but that’s a pretty big search area when you’re looking for petroglyphs. In any case, congratulations … it’s not often someone captures most of the world’s knowledge on a given subject in a Stub article.--Orygun (talk) 17:38, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
