Libby, Montana[edit]

Dear Magnolia677, I do not know why you keep removing the external link www.explorelibbymontana.com from Libby Montana's wikipedia page. I humbly ask that you please stop doing it. Explorelibbymontana.com is a website completely about Libby Montana and it is absolutely free for the town of Libby Montana. It does not generate any income and its not an advertising website. It features all of Libby Montana's recreation, lodging, shopping, restaurants, churches, schools, events and basically everything there is to know about Libby Montana. Its the only website that Libby Montana's has that does this. Also you keep changing the external link for the City of Libby's website www.libbymontana.com to read "Official Website" instead of leaving it to read "City of Libby's website" which is what it is. I humbly ask that you also quit changing that. The City of Libby's website is only for Libby city limits (approximately 2,000 residents) and does not include information for the rest of the town, which is an additional 10,000 residents and other Libby area attractions. I understand and respect that you are trying to make and keep wikipedia pages top notch and within wiki guidelines. So I appreciate your efforts, however the changes that you are making to Libby Montana's wiki page are not correct so I kindly ask that you please stop making them. I am going to go ahead and change the links back to how they were. If you disagree with me then I ask that rather than continuing to delete the links please contact me. Thank you and have a great day. Dejonraines (talk) 15:41, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Tupelo, Mississippi[edit]

You were wrong in removing the mention of the American Family Association, which has its own wikpedia page stating it is located in Tupelo. I am going to put it back in, and you had better leave it be. Bucksburg (talk) 19:12, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Tampa, Florida[edit]

Thanks for the note of encouragement. I plan to do some trimming of the History section too, which is quite long. Also, the text in the Seaports section under Transport seems out of place; I'm thinking the first half belongs in the Port article, and the second half probably belongs in the Economy section. Unlike the rest of the Transport section, nothing within the Seaports section discusses how people move around Tampa. Barryjjoyce (talk) 13:54, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

A 10 dollar phone cam[edit]

You have NEVER in your life been more wrong about something.

  • 1. If you look at the ECIF data you will see it was taken with a $1200 dollar Leica.
  • 2. If you care to know it was taken from the cockpit of a Pilatus PC-12 ($4, million dollars). Commercial aircraft do not fly low over La Jolla.
  • 3. I requested special permission from ATC (that means Air Traffic Control) to get THAT SHOT FOR THAT PAGE. Your concept of lead photos being one of a street or a courthouse is not to policy and after 6 years here, I have never, ever heard that from any editor before.

Do not revert my photos please, if you have issues use the talk pages. Please try to use some decorum and class with your edit summaries. If your going to try to claim that someone used a cel phone at least look at the ECIF data rather then simply make it up. I saw your apology and regret that it came in a little too late. talk→ WPPilot  15:40, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

William Henry Foote[edit]

Hello again. I wonder if William Henry Foote, whose page I've just created, was a relative of the Footes of Mississippi. Not sure how we would find out. I found this, but it is a little bit confusing.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:40, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Hey there. Let me poke around a bit. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 02:53, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, looking forward to it. I wonder if there is a portrait somewhere that we could add.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:43, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Good find with the tombstone. I'm sure there must be a portrait somewhere if he was so prominent...Zigzig20s (talk) 04:28, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

I looked all over the net for a picture of Foote, but all I found was his grave. I'll keep looking. Let me ask you, do you think Junius Richard Ward is notable enough for an article? Thanks! Magnolia677 (talk) 04:44, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes definitely, although that blog cannot be used as a reference obviously. Actually I think it is the namesake of Junius R. Ward House, isn't it? The wisest course of action is usually to start a userpage and look for serious references, then write an article and move it to a proper article once it is strong enough. At least that is what I tend to do for bios (for example with User:Zigzig20s/Joseph Newmark). Btw, I e-mailed Hampden-Sydney College to ask them if they had a portrait of Foote anywhere on their campus. We will see if they reply.Zigzig20s (talk) 05:53, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'd be happy to work with you on Junius R. Ward. Btw, I have just created User:Zigzig20s/Van Perkins Winder, for the Ducros Plantation. Are you interested in this as well? If so, please see my message there and reply on my talkpage. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 19:26, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Help me understand this please?Zigzig20s (talk) 10:30, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Are you able to find a picture/portrait of William J. Minor please?Zigzig20s (talk) 00:56, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Are you able to transfer Martha Grundy Winder's picture to Wikimedia Commons please?Zigzig20s (talk) 17:07, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you!Zigzig20s (talk) 00:59, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
I am guessing it is not possible to upload this picture on page 187, is it? I have e-mailed the historian at Samford University, as they should have portraits/pictures of him, but it's still worth asking you I suppose...Zigzig20s (talk) 01:23, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Not to be a jerk but……...[edit]

I couldn't help but notice, can't you and Alansohn, get along? :/ I hate to see so many, many, disagreements, where it keeps leading to a report to administration, over and over and over again. I know we all have different view points, but still. If there is anything I can do, let me know. Tinton5 (talk) 23:54, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your note, and for your many great edits to New Jersey. I've been at a loss to explain this editor's endless bullying and intimidation. A few nights ago I created Springtown, New Jersey, but I have absolutely no ownership of it and would welcome the input of others to improve it. It's about building an encyclopedia; it's not about "me". Magnolia677 (talk) 00:19, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Greeting[edit]

Thank you for all the improvements you made on Consular Agency of the United States, Bremen! By the way, do you know what kind of sources can be taken as proper "3rd party sources" for this article? Howard61313 (talk) 18:39, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Concord[edit]

Hello again. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me expand User:Zigzig20s/Concord (Natchez, Mississippi). It was built in 1789, a decade before the establishment of the Mississippi Territory!! Unfortunately it burned down in 1901, but there is still a lot of history to unearth. Once there is enough info, I will move it to mainspace.Zigzig20s (talk) 02:05, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Re MOS:INFOBOXFLAG[edit]

You may want to review this response left here on your talk page by Carlossuarez46, which makes rather clear that the purpose of the example provided in MOS:INFOBOXFLAG was to show how Manhattan is both a human geographic feature (a borough of New York City) and a physical geographic feature (an island). As this edit demonstrates the rather clear intention of the editor who crafted the wording of MOS:INFOBOXFLAG and as the previous wording was causing you much confusion and leading to misinterpretations on your part, I will be reverting your recent edit to that article. If you have a genuine difference of opinion from Carlossuarez46 and the rest of the community about the interpretation of this policy, it would be best to raise your concerns at the article's talk page.

dandtiks69[edit]

From dandtiks69: I see you think the information I put about Searchlight, Nevada, is false and un-cited. Now, let me ask you this: have you even played Fallout: New Vegas? You're comment on Searchlight not even appearing in the game page shows you are purposefully being ignorant (no offence intended, but that's how it is right now). This is how the information should read:

In Fallout: New Vegas (setting: post-nuclear Nevada), a place named Camp Searchlight is based off of the town in real-life Nevada. Originally, it read that a nuclear bomb hit Camp Searchlight, and so I corrected it to read somebody opened steel drums containing radioactive waste because in the story that's how it happened. Even the Fallout wiki says this, and it even links Camp Searchlight from Wikipedia into the page!

Now, I know Fallout: New Vegas is not completely accurate in terms of geography (the map was scaled down slightly to include parts of Nevada, California, and Arizona), but to ignore my citations is not something you can do to people in Wikipedia, because it is a place for learning, not punishment or training. And to say I put uncited information in previous articles is irrelevant. I hope you understood, if you choose to understand.

ANI notification[edit]

Dandtiks69, #2[edit]

Also, I forgot to mention that the game's storyline is short, but the sidestory is insanely expansive, and the many side quests that compose the game have the background story implied. The game starts off saying that the population of the US survived in vaults after the nuclear holocaust, but that's as far as it gets into the story: the rest the player has to piece together. Because of this, I realize that Camp Searchlight may not have been included in the page for the game because it involves a side quest into the barely-explored sections of the game. Now, here's another question: is there a way to make sources come from Youtube?

Given the inscruatbility of the above I have closed it. μηδείς (talk) 22:11, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Wait, μηδείς, what do you mean by that?Dandtiks69 (talk) 23:14, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

proposed iban, please comment[edit]

given your involvement, please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents#Suggested_Limited_Interaction_Ban_between_Users_Alansohn_and_Magnolia677. Thanks. μηδείς (talk) 22:08, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

First, you should know it is standard procedure for any i-ban to be mutual, even if only one party has actually done anything wrong yet. It is far from uncommon for people who have had someone else i-ban with them to engage in conduct which they probably wouldn't have engaged in before the i-ban which might merit some attention. Gloating, "grave-dancing," that sort of thing. You can perhaps feel free to think of the i-ban in your own regard as being more cautionary than penalizing. Also, you will note that you are still free to appeal to others in the event your interactions with Alansohn become problematic. If someone (not necessarily you, you understand, but just someone) were to engage in activity which clearly violates the i-ban, in a rather egregious way, well, that someone might be subject to a rather long block or limited topic ban, like, maybe, a specific city or subfield of NJ, like its economy, streets, a given city or county, whatever. Maybe. Not necessarily you, you understand, just a hypothetical someone. John Carter (talk) 19:06, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
I'll be cautious editing the Garden State and hope for the best. Thanks for the advice. Magnolia677 (talk) 21:44, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
John writes well and gives good advice. I self imposed a iban on myself regarding a particular person, and my wikitime has been much better.John from Idegon (talk) 01:03, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
I suffered from some vicious attacks across several articles by an editor a few months ago. He was a WP:DICK to say the least. It was difficult, but I used neutral terms, dispassionate logic, over-cited...In the long run it worked out for the best. Proverbs 15:1 is undoubtedly true. Jacona (talk) 12:36, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Interaction ban with User:Alansohn[edit]

The IBAN you have agreed to with Alansohn has been formally enacted. --Jayron32 01:42, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

To make this explicit, here is the IBAN discussion with the exact terms and here is the formal listing. Should there be some inadvertent factual or format error that needs immediate correction, feel free to contact me with a diff and the problem stated without regard to the editor on my talk page, and I will be glad to rectify issues which you cannot do so directly. μηδείς (talk) 16:58, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Notice of discussion at ANI[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. John Carter (talk) 22:58, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

One of the reasons why the thread doesn't seem to have been closed yet is apparently lack of input from you. That being the case, maybe adding some comments in response to some of the proposals regarding how to, eventually, keep the two of you out of each other's hair might be beneficial.

Rock Creek Park[edit]

I don't understand this edit. JohnInDC (talk) 03:02, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

My edit summary seemed pretty clear? Magnolia677 (talk) 22:18, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but the material you removed was sourced in the article text. JohnInDC (talk) 23:22, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't understand why you did that either, Magnolia. It's quite well established that a properly written lede does not need references. Your miscue was not without value, however. It caused JohninDC to take a closer look at the article and buff it up a bit. In case you haven't run into John before, he is one of the most prolific U.S. place editors we have. John from Idegon (talk) 00:59, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, it generally is the case that material repeated in the lede, but sourced in the article itself, doesn't need sourcing in the lede, provided the material in the lede doesn't deviate pronouncedly from the material that is sourced in the body. John Carter (talk) 01:02, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
The article in fact needs a good bit of work - organizationally; ref cleanup and consolidation (not to mention finding links that work) - and I think this will be a nice project in coming days! JohnInDC (talk) 02:25, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
My apologies for not looking closer at the article. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 02:40, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

in Mount Kisco article, removal of Sandra Lee from Notable people because it was unsourced[edit]

Ace:

I noticed that you removed my entry for Sandra Lee in Notable people for the the Mount Kisco, New York article, because the information was unsourced. Did you notice that there were nineteen additional names in Notable people that were also unsourced? Those names are still in the section. I don't understand the reasoning and logic for SELECTIVE deletes. If you're going to delete my entry, you might as well delete the other nineteen entries in the Mount Kisco article, because that information is also unsourced.

I have to admit that I don't understand why I waste my time and effort making constructive edits to Wikipedia.

Anthony22 (talk) 21:49, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) The reason Magnolia removed Ms. Lee and the others is that there was no referenced content in their bios linking them to the community. In Lee's case, there was contradictory content. So that begs the question where did your information that she belonged on that list come from? In case you didn't know it, ALL content in the encyclopedia is supposed to come from already published reliable sources. So we're you just too lazy to cite where you read it, or is your idea of a useful contribution adding your personal knowledge? If the latter is the case, please don't continue. Thanks.
