Shoeless Joe[edit]

I changed Shoeless Joe Jackson's batting average to the correct value. Here is the reference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Desertmonk (talkcontribs) 22:11, 26 May 2014 (UTC)


I keep noticing your articles getting marked as reviewed, so I thought I'd do this since there's obviously no need for your work to be checked. I hope you don't think it's an imposition. You don't actually have to do anything, but maybe watchlist the page for a bit to see what happens. I have no doubt it'll be routinely granted.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 22:11, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, that was fast. They gave it to you. You won't even notice, but it'll trim the unpatrolled pages list. Congrats!— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 22:28, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Previous versions[edit]

When looking at the article history tab, you can compare two versions and then undo to go back to the first version. You can also click the date and see the previous version, "edit " to open the old version and then save to re-establish the article as it was then. No fancy roll back tools needed. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 12:05, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Out of Curiosity[edit]

Just out of curiosity, why did you rewrite the Zoorassic Park section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nmwalter (talkcontribs) 03:27, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

I completely understand! Thank you for clarifying and helping to make Wikipedia even better! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nmwalter (talkcontribs) 12:19, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Culver City, CA[edit]

If you're going to remove content from this page for supposedly unsourced content, then you need to be consistent and remove all content for "unsourced content". That would include Drew Barrymore (whoo by the way did *not* live in CC), Jack Black, Dee Dee Davis, Jackson Browne, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Robert Petway[edit]

The link referenced in the article shows evidence that Petway may have been born in Gee's Bend, Alabama Boykin). According to the article, there's as much evidence, if not more, that he was born there as opposed to Yazoo City. Is there another reason this was deleted? Just wondering. Thanks! Dofftoubab (talk) 17:08, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Principality of Sealand[edit]

The update tag was needed because events of 2013 were mentioned in the future sense, and because certain things need to fixed regarding the death of Prince Roy. pbp 19:54, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Chinese Canadian[edit]

Hello, I delete your editing of the page Chinese Canadian. My younger brother is a Chinese Canadian, he speaks French with a French accent, because he learned French in cartoons before going to school. And there are many Chinese Canadian who speaks French with a French accent, because they learned French in cartoons, or they don't want to speak with a Canadian accent, the Canadian accent is strange, the word tête is pronounced "tight".

Hey, thanks for helping with the Lake Charles article. The only thing I don't like is the picture under the industry setting. It's an old picture, and only barely shows the industry in the background, while some family is in the foreground. It doesn't really do much justice for the topic at hand.

CTtcg (talk) 15:18, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Well if I had to choose one, it would be the Sunset over Olin-Mathieson picture. I just don't think showing individuals in a picture like that is a good idea, even if they are older photos. CTtcg (talk) 16:02, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

I like the edits on Prien Lake too. It's good to have more information there. I readjusted the pics. When the new casino is built that old photo can be replaced with one showing both of them. CTtcg (talk) 20:04, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

You reverted my edit of Lake Charles Music "It is the subject of the song, 21 Miles to Lake Charles Prison, performed by Johnny Paycheck and written by Aubrey Mayhew" with the request "Please provide a reference stating the location of "Lake Charles Prison"" I don't understand the relevance of the location of "Lake Charles Prison"" This is about a song, not a prison.

Greenwood High School[edit]

You are welcome. As for fixing it myself, I might not have the correct information or the inclination to look for it. Further, I have made what I consider to be helpful revisions to articles, only to receive a stern note from someone, and to have the edit reverted. Given the tight censorship maintained by Wikipedia, I have decided that simply pointing out the error, and letting anyone who desires to do so, fix it, is the best course of action. John Paul Parks (talk) 15:53, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

I was referring to past editing experiences involving other articles, and not involving the article on Greenwood High School. My impression of Wikipedia is that each article, or group of articles, has a hovering sponsor or patron who monitors it constantly, even obsessively, and reverts edits of which he or she disapproves.John Paul Parks (talk) 20:39, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Klamath Falls[edit]

Hi, Magnolia.

Thanks for your observation. The name has two distinct parts: Klamath + Falls, each with their own origin. Klamath, although tough to find an exact origin, is intimately related to the people that lived in the "region". Falls relates to the white waters just downstream of the Link River Dam. Perhaps the epigraph ought to be rewritten for clarity to reflect these two unique aspects of the name of the city. Good day Bobjgalindo (talk) 22:29, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Why don't we move this to the talk? I think some revealing data can come out and improve that section ... no? Bobjgalindo (talk) 22:36, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Edit reversion[edit]

Hi Magnolia677,

Sure the images are mine, but I'm not adding them for my own benefit; I don't even say they're mine anywhere but each image description page. I added them because Valhalla has very few images and could use some, so free images of anything Valhalla should be most welcome. I also made the gallery collapsed, because I know the article is primarily about Valhalla, and don't want fire department images so prominent on the page. So I don't see why the images aren't welcome on the article.--ɱ (talk) 14:53, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

McDowell County WV...hmmmmmmmmm[edit]

LOOKY FINALLY made it there..YEGADS, what a trip. NICE pic of Elkhorn by the way......Coal town guy (talk) 14:03, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Appreciate the note, I have been doing interviews with folks from the area, Mom has started the long crappy path of alzheimers and I thought this would be my last shot at a cogent interview about a long list of places in WV with her as was....THEN I did a large trip, and BAM, back to the world of edits again/...sorry fr the lack of responses...the interviews were not as easy as I thought for sure, learned alot.Coal town guy (talk) 14:38, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Jenkinjones, WV[edit]

MOST EXCELLENT, I see you made it to Jenkinjones, DID you perhaps see the Jenkinjones Union House and of course the Pocahontas Fuel buildings?? I wish I knew you were there, Andy who lives above the offices is a nice guy who happens to reside in the clerks offices above.........Coal town guy (talk) 18:37, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

I got to the two Pocahontas buildings at the south end of town, but most of the rest of the place seemed residential or abandoned. Approached the town from Virginia in the south. Interesting demographics in Appalachia; the highest average age in the county, and epidemic overdose rates. Everything revolved around coal. Still, lovely people and breathtaking scenery. Magnolia677 (talk) 20:01, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
AWWWW MAN, you missed [THIS] and [THIS]...get back when you canCoal town guy (talk) 21:01, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Killarney WV[edit]

Killarney disappeared in totum by ~2002, or 03. In the winter we had the ability to see the house foundations, thats pretty much gone now, in 09, they wiped the hollers slick due to flooding, and by the way, that was the death knell for Pickshin WV as well. There WAS a church there, but its gone. The processing plant is East Gulf Proper BUT all other belts feed the East Gulf Plant. When you follow the belt down what we call coal city road, it stops at the East Gulf Plant. Believe it or not, (you probably will), there was a time when you could sit on steps of the old houses..The mountain in the newer topo maps is also a misnomer. That mountain is the spent coal/waste pile of another town, Lillybrook. Lillybrook, has some VERY small homes that are on the edge of being dozed, but that town proper should also be a ghost town. Lillybrook was for all intents a giant, as was Killarney, its old processing plant was gargantuan even by todays standards.Coal town guy (talk) 14:15, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Did I ever tell you, how much I miss it?...Coal town guy (talk) 14:36, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Few places are as breathtakingly beautiful. Mines, trains, mountains, rivers...and nice people. Hard not to miss all that! Magnolia677 (talk) 14:41, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
As a child, I bragged that I never owned a train set, or really any train toy, I had real ones to play with.Coal town guy (talk) 14:43, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
UPDATE, added something from Killarney.........Coal town guy (talk) 14:17, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Sports Stadiums[edit]

I have made a start on reverting Ahellweg's attempt to rewrite history. I did 15 reversions, in chronological order, from his oldest one up to Target Field. I'm telling you just so that if you plan to revert some yourself, you needn't bother checking those. It's boring work, so I doubt I'll be doing any more. Maproom (talk) 20:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I actually left the message at the help desk in the hope that someone might be able to "nuke" the edits. I may try a few myself. Thanks again. Magnolia677 (talk) 20:54, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I've done most of the rest, in chronological order, up to Heinz Field. There's about 20 left. Maproom (talk) 18:27, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Alligator, Mississippi[edit]

Hello, you deleted my section. But i don't know how to insert resources, SwampRockMusic (talk) 17:21, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Lake Gogebic[edit]

The Lake does lie in both Ontonagon and Gogebic Counties and it is one of the largest geographical features of the area hence the reason to add it to the Ontonagon County page. The view of the photograph shows the Ontonagon County portion of the lake. Skyrunner75 (talk) 17:25, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Westwood Studios[edit]

Hi there, I've changed the edit back and replaced the citation needed tag with a real reference now. I was going to get back to it later. Usually {{cn}} tags and citations themselves shouldn't be in the lead (as per WP:LEAD) so I removed that tag and replaced it with a real one in the article. Thank you.

County census data[edit]

The sources are up to date but the population density data is not. Urbanative (talk) 00:24, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

The U.S. Census Bureau also releases estimates and the last one was released a few months ago for 2013. Population density is calculated by dividing the population by the land area. Urbanative (talk) 03:20, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Gregory Peck[edit]

If you are to delete the birth years of Peck's children from his second marriage, how come you have yet to delete the birth years of the children from his first? There are no sources to prove theirs either. Hitcher vs. Candyman (User talk:Hitcher vs. Candyman) 20:18, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

2015 Pan American Games[edit]

This is a template that changes the link there from simply the country (Brazil) to the page as destination of the tournament (Brazil at the 2015 Pan American Games). Check it out. That's the pattern for this kind of situation. ;) Indech (talk) 17:55, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

No, it's there for a reason! If you look at the template code when editing, the number can be left out erasing it in the code itself. For instance: {{flagPASO|BRA|2015|126}} to {{flagPASO|BRA|2015}}. But it's there because it shows the number of athletes qualified so far. Check out when it's more complete in articles like 2014 Youth Olympic Games.


Hi Magnolia677,
As DRV isn't the best place for this I figured we should discuss here,
I apologize If I was unhelpful on my talkpage - It wasn't my intention at all,
My reply to you wasn't supposed to have been unhelpful at all, I admit the "because it seemed notable?" remark was perhaps unhelpful but it seemed to me that you didn't have any idea about AFD hence why I pointed you in that direction,
I'm the politest & nicest bloke you could ever speak to :) - but I'm also "uncivil" when "things go wrong with everyone" if you like,
Anyway I apologize And I also apologize for the AFD message which I've now removed :),
Anyway If you need any help just ask :)
Have a nice day, Regards, –Davey2010(talk) 22:33, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I appreciate that. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:19, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Improve Argument[edit]

Hi Magnolia677 I seen you disagree with the article I have written, it fails WP:ENTERTAINER you voted. Well please explain why you disagree, when I notice several articles that doesn't meet the Wikipedia guidelines but it not nominated for deletion. Please review this article of Paul Bates with no references to what notability with minor roles. I don't understand how this article is allow without explaining its point of view or reliable source of verification. Another argument is this article Brittney Wilson she shares the same resources database as I used. She doesnt have any other references of explanation to be consider notable as a entertainer. My last argument is this article Young Cartoon has no notability and fails WP:ENTERTAINER, exceed dead links and article doesn't meet any standards to be notable. In conclusion if these articles can pass and be accepted to Wikipedia guidelines, my article should be Kept as well. I think you help me saved my first article from deletion and help improve it. Please talk to me -- Iranmichealst@lk 23:27, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for writing. He just seems pretty non-notable. I clicked on many of the references cited in the article and they didn't even mention Prince Richardson. He doesn't seem to meet the criteria listed in WP:ENTERTAINER. If you think he does, add the references to the article, and explain why you feel the article should not be deleted. Cheers!

bogue chitto, ms[edit]

I noticed you made some edits to the,_Lincoln_County,_Mississippi You noted you were removing someone born in chicago. Removing Bobby Moak who is the state representative for this district and lives and has an office on monticello street in bogue chitto. I believe the section was notable people and not people born in Bogue Chitto. If you google to find his bio, why not see that his home address is in Bogue Chitto?... Although, I completely disagree with this edit, that's not why I'm reaching out. You seem to have made a manual edit and noted it. For some reason you care or you're just a nit pick. Anyway, for whatever reason, I need some mentoring. I'm missing something. 1. Why would you go to the trouble to find out that Bobby Moak is actually born in Chicago and then make that edit? 2. Bogue Chitto is the city with the highest divorce rate but ... the link is now behind a paywall and there is a note with the edit... "unsustainable". How do I fix this? 3. The main body of the article depends on a history gathered by the eastern star and DAR but the link is now dead, how do I fix that? That pretty much destroys the page. At which point, the page might as well be marked for deletion. For a page that is so completely and thoroughly insignificant, I've received a constant stream of edits, but I'm completely open to suggestions which is sadly what I find lacking from wikipedia. I'm putting it all on the line. Tell me how to fix this page or kill it. Shi Jun ning (talk) 17:30, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Mississippi census-designated places[edit]

Hi-User:The Catalyst31 added a list of census-designated places to the user page and there are 4 census-designated places in Mississippi that need articles. You may want to look at the list. I thought you might be interested since you have started articles on Mississippi unincorporated communities. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 11:07, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Grants Pass, Oregon[edit]

Are you giving me homework? I have no obligation to go and find refs for other editors' allegations. Edits with "citation needed" for a year or so are not credible, and have no place in the article.--Mycomp (talk) 05:33, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Homework? More likely asking you to reflect on what your purpose is on Wikipedia. I think we should all be here to build the project. Ok, you find a bunch of names in a list you feel don't belong, so you delete them. I looked at the first name of those you deleted--the first one--and in less than 2 minutes found a reference showing he did belong. And if I have time, which I probably won't, I'll fill in refs for the rest of them. Some people do what's easy, others do what's right. But if you simply deleted those names, without even checking to see if in fact they were from Grants Pass, then shame on you. Magnolia677 (talk) 10:55, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I didn't just "delete a bunch of names I feel don't belong", I deleted a bunch of names that had a "citation needed" tag added by another editor about a year ago. Cleaning-up is also a task that needs to be done. And if you don't think you will have time to find more refs, why do you think I do? And your edit comment "go find others" sounded like giving me homework. But OK, I will keep out of the articles I see you are editing from now on. Have a nice day.--Mycomp (talk) 12:26, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Moorhead MN[edit]

Magnolia677, thanks for your attention to the Moorhead, Minnesota page. I understand you altered my entries and you are correct, I am new to Wiki editing. I established an account when an individual contacted the City to update the employment section. Be my guest if you are willing to do so in a more accurate way! I wrote the City's website so don't consider using this content as plagiarism, but sorry if it is. My goal was only to correct outdated references and to get enough edits in to attain status necessary to update the City's logo. If you would like to do so on the City's behalf, please do! That would help tremendously. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moorheadfactchecker (talkcontribs) 14:19, 15 August 2014 (UTC)


I undid an edit. i was in error for doing so without contacting you. My apologies. I had not been on the site in some time and had forgotten how to get to you for a question,

William Paley attended and graduated from Western Military Academy in Alton. It was a boarding school. Paul Tibbets who was also a WMA student was previously on the Alton Page. The city of Alton recently created a city park to memorialize the Graduates of Western Military Academy. The Memorial obelisk in the park highlights the accomplishments of Paley,and  Tibbets among other WMA grads,
Please let me know what I need to do.

Thanks, Cbjack68 (talk) 15:41, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for writing. If you look at WP:USCITIES, it outlines notable people as those "famous or notable individuals that were born, or lived for a significant amount of time, in the city." If living in Alton had a documented influence on this person, then it's great that you listed him. I think this rule is to avoid listing every place a famous person ever lived. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 18:35, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

In reply[edit]

Hi! I'm sorry but my net access is going to be severely limited for the next month or so, so I will not be able to do anything to help in the situation you described.

As a matter of fact, my access is going to be so limited that I need to ask you for a favor. Could you keep an eye on Bowling Green, Kentucky for me? I had a dust up with an editor there who took great offense at my very appropriate revert of an edit they made. You'll be able to figure out what is up from a look at the article's talk page, and possibly mine and his (don't think you will need to look at the talk page at the edit war noticeboard or at the request for mediation.) I really don't know how things spun so bad, but I am sure that at some point he is going to replace the stuff that did not belong in the transportation section. Please do what you can. If that is nothing I understand. Thanks! John from Idegon (talk) 16:50, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

I'll add it to my watchlist. Cheers! Magnolia677 (talk) 18:31, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I did review the COI policy and I find no conflict with my role as a public servant. My goal is current, accurate information about the City of Moorhead. If you are able to upload the current logo, that would be most appreciated and constructive. The prior logo has been discontinued. Moorheadfactchecker (talk) 19:24, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
