Nice Job[edit]

My Dad saved the Herald article for me, and I saw it over Easter weekend - nice job, and nice photo! It was quite strange to see it all in print and it will be interesting to look for increased movement on the ProjectVermont page as a possible result. It certainly made me log back in and look around for the first time in a while. Thanks. H0n0r 21:06, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

RE: ALA self-promotion[edit]

Perhaps you or someone else using an established userid who has an ALA affiliation can use the dispute resolution process to work this out? Davidwr 15:27, 30 April 2007 (UTC)


The Burke material looks to be stuff from a brand new user. It may be from out-of-copyright material anyway, despite my breast-beating on the Burke discussion. It would be nice to shepherd this new user through his/her changes. Could be a useful contributor to NEK stuff. I don't know about all that voting business in the beginning. Where DID that come from??? I HOPE it's a child. If an adult, brrrrr...  :) Student7 12:10, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Sorry it took so long. My old account was GDS918 and I lost my password. Actually, that was not a census for 2005, it was an estimate given by the US Census Bureau in 2006. But somehow I find it unlikely that Guilford lost people, more likely that it gained people. That's all. Take care!

RE:thanks for making the Vermont town pages pretty[edit]

Thanks for the unexpected surprise! I love to pretty-fy articles with images :-) Happy editing! --Agüeybaná 21:10, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Shire town/county seat[edit]

You say that shire towns in Vermont have signs saying both "shire town" and "county seat". Would you be willing to take a picture of such a sign and upload it to Commons? It would be helpful on the county seat page. Nyttend 02:12, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Your query[edit]

I've replied on my talk page.

I'm apologetic that I can't say more, and hope you'll understand. For what its worth, it was rechecked and agreed.

Susan Wiley[edit]

If you wouldn't mind please revisiting the Genie (the feral child) article, now that I've included full transcriptions on my own article at countyhistorian for five of the articles that appeared at the time of her parents arrest. All five articles state her name and none of them make any insinuation that any part of the story is private.Wjhonson (talk) 07:01, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Did you read the newspaper transcripts which I provided? Can you point out some policy where once information has been widely distributed we should then suppress it? As you can see the internet is highly geared toward modern individuals. People of historical note (before about 1990) are skewed toward modern works, not historical ones. I provided the exact citations to the newspaper articles which named her as Susan Wiley without any indication than that her name was private in any way. Can you address that point? Thanks.

Bethel, Vermont[edit]

So your well-intentioned edit to update your residence was reverted. Perhaps it would be acceptable to list the approximate dates you lived in Bethel so you can be listed as a notable former resident.--otherlleft (talk) 15:27, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

I gave you the head's-up because it's clear you know how lightly one must tread in editing one's own entry. Maybe next time I head up that way I'll take a picture of your new mailbox to prove that you moved ;)--otherlleft (talk) 17:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Newport (town) notable[edit]

You are probably right about the vandalism. I was being irritable and wanted to revert it quickly. There once was a Howard Stern character called "Bigfoot" who lived in Newport city (not town). Howard tired of him and reassigned the designation long ago to someone or maybe a series of characters. So whoever he is now, he doesn't live in Newport. And the title is apparently "owned" by Stern and is reused. I don't mean copyright. It's just that the person is really only "notable" for being a drunk, talking crazy, and/or horribly anti-socially eccentric. or a prisoner or something. Infamous rather than famous. And he isn't "notable" under his real name anymore. I found this out through a lengthy investigation some years back and have had to revert it every few months or so since in several of the towns in the area. It is a nuisance.

251 Club[edit]

Was that you with the picture of Somerset in the Quechee Journal article about the club? If so, I was much amused at your recounting of your visit to Franklin, a place I've only visited two or three times myself, though I work with several people who call it home, which means, I suppose, that I know half the town!

While not a member of the club, I've visited all but 25 places, one of which is Somerset, and nearly all of which are in the far southern part of our state. One exception is another place you mentioned in the story: Lewis. While I've been to the NEK many times, as my family's originally from there, I've never quite found Lewis. Perhaps one day.

Mr. Peter Coyote[edit]

Hi. May you please tell Mr. Coyote that he's the best voice in Hollywood and all media. Thanks. Apple8800 (talk) 06:02, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

I'd be happy to. I'm always psyched to hear him in the ipad commercials. Jessamyn (talk) 06:07, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Stealth Canvasing[edit]

I don't know how Wikipedia:Canvassing works, as it is new to me, but would your post here (#925376) be considered stealth canvasing? It's an honest question and not a threat or a veiled accusation. I'm communicating with you "privately" to better understand if you intended with that post to encourage, direct or educate Metafilter readers on how to best handle the GiveWell Wikipedia page. Thank you.

-- Green Cardamom (talk) 04:45, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm probably the wrong person to ask, since I can assure you if I thought it was stealth canvasing I wouldn't have done it. People asked questions about how to deal with a dispute on Wikipedia about a topic they cared about and, honestly, that's the way disputes are dealt with. I haven't edited the GiveWell page and I haven't encouraged people to go edit the page to give the illusion of some sort of "grass roots" swell of support for "my" side. People who were already trying to edit the article were getting frustrated with their edits being reverted and were asking how to manage the situation they were in and that's basically how to manage it. If you have larger concerns with the way I'm interacting on MetaFilter or on Wikipedia, you might want to get input from a completely disinterested party or some other admin since I've obviously got a bias towards feeling that my own behavior is okay. Jessamyn (talk) 14:31, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
"People who were already trying to edit the article were getting frustrated with their edits being reverted," can you be more specific what you mean by that? Which people? I don't believe I reverted. Green Cardamom (talk) 17:33, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Before I came to the page people were saying they were doing things to the page that were getting undone. I am reporting what people told me, not what I personally saw. Jessamyn (talk) 19:55, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 16:21, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Wallace F. Miller[edit]

It seems you may have deleted what I posted about Wallace F. Miller , a 3 war veteran born in Williston on a farm. He is in 3 Vermont books of War Veterans and has won the Bronze Star in Vietnam for heroic deeds. To assist you on the Matter for verification contact The State Of Vermont Veterans Affairs Office in Montpelier. Mr. Miller did much more for this country and state then any of the other so called notables. he gave his life. So please explain why he has been deleted. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Worldtripper (talkcontribs) 15:40, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

So how do I add that page now or is it there ? I am trying to Honor my father as he deserves it for what he did for this country and the state of Vermont. he is on a Memorial in Essex Korea Memorial at the 5 corners and the VietNam One in Sharon he is also in three War Books of Vermont Veterans. I am also a war veteran and suffer from PTSD so now this is getting too complicated and I could not figure out how to add a picture of him in Viet Nam getting a medal from the General for his actions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Worldtripper (talkcontribs) 22:40, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Thats a shame, I try to do a page and keep getting a run around. Ben and jerry are not born in Williston, I do not care what they did. Then there are others on the list that are not True Vermonters nor born in Williston. Each time I do the page , it is not allowed, thats a shame, so I do not need to put a TRUE VERMONTER HERO ON SUCH A PLACE WITH THE LIOKES OF A CIA MAN OR A COUPLE OF PEOPLE who mad rice cream, They have not done anything like my father did for this country, state or town. Ben and Jerry have no respect fpr Veterans as far as I am concerned, I asked at B& J some years ago ,

if they could help me do a Veterans house,

NO interest from them as far as I am concerned maybe you are anti military also, so keep your page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Worldtripper (talkcontribs) 01:49, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
