NRHP ref numbers[edit]

I noticed your last edit at National Register of Historic Places listings in Travis County, Texas. Do you know about Elkman's tool for NRHP articles? It will generate a full info box, including the ref number. Try this, it should help. Smallbones(smalltalk) 00:16, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Wow, this is great! I did not know about it. Thanks for showing it to me - big time saver. — Maile (talk) 00:22, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
And then again, it doesn't work for everything. It's kind of hit and miss. Some searches, i.e. for historic districts, come up blank. — Maile (talk) 00:49, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
These are likely new listings. Elkman's tool uses the NRIS database, which is updated every year or two, but should otherwise be "complete" (though the NRHP is sometimes inconsistent on maybe 1% of its entries). There are ways to get info on new listings, including a new listings announcement every week or two, and maybe something like a "Featured new listing" announcement, and announcements from the state organizations (SHPOs), though I use these fairly infrequently. E-mail requests to the NRHP also sometimes work, though in one case for a 1.5 year old listing, they told me they just didn't have it. Ask a question at WT:NRHP for help on the non-Elkman stuff.

Building your own featured topic one article at a time[edit]

Biographystar.png The Biography Barnstar
For your work bringing Audie Murphy, Military career of Audie Murphy, Film career of Audie Murphy, and Audie Murphy honors and awards all to GA or better status. I doubt any other soldier in US history including Ike and Grant has been so well covered in Wikipedia. Your exceptional dedication not only improves Wikipedia but also honors the life of a heroic Solider.‎ Chris Troutman (talk) 06:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. — Maile (talk) 11:36, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Editors Barnstar Hires.png The Editor's Barnstar
For your exceptional work both at DYK and on Audie Murphy topics, for the messages of encouragement you send others, you are truly a brilliant and inspiring editor. All the best, Matty.007 15:29, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. This means a great deal getting this from you. — Maile (talk) 15:31, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Congratulations on the promotion of Audie Murphy at FAC. Well done. You might consider nominating the article for the front page. Also, thanks for the puppy. Face-grin.svg Hawkeye7 (talk) 00:18, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of Audie Murphy to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA) appear as "Today's featured article" soon (either on a particular date or on any available date), please nominate it at the requests page. If you'd like to see an FA appear on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with about 1,307 articles waiting their turn at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. BencherliteTalk 18:16, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Hawaii[edit]

Is your username Hawaiian? I wrote a bit on Ford_Island#Ancient_Hawaiians about the use of a Maile during a Hawaiian ritual. If you are Hawaiian, and based in Hawaii, I just wanted to give you a heads up that we're planning an edit-a-thon in November.--v/r - TP 18:47, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Credo[edit]

Hey Maile, if you still want to give back your Credo access, could you please fill out this short form? Thanks, Nikkimaria (talk) 23:03, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

There's a problem with this, not the least of which is that it happened almost 2 years ago. As far as I remember, I filled out a form to let someone else have that account. Another editor had asked me. But who that was, I have no idea. And a lot has happened since 2012, so I have no idea about this. Are you saying the account is still in my name? — Maile (talk) 23:28, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Nikkimaria, here's my talk page thread about it. It was Dr. Blofeld who requested I give it to Nvvchar, and Ocaasi who was going to take care of it. — Maile (talk) 23:35, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, at this point we do have more accounts, so if Nvvchar still wants one that should be doable without a give-back. Nikkimaria (talk) 23:42, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, then. I filled out your form above for you. — Maile (talk) 23:53, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Nvvchar isn't active now. I don't think I'd need access to it. I don't know if User:Aymatth2 or anybody else can access to it.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:20, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know. — Maile (talk) 12:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I have not used this account in the last two years. You may like to allot it to someone else. Thanks for informing me.--Nvvchar. 16:27, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for telling us. — Maile (talk) 18:46, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for extensive work at DYK. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Matty.007 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate Maile66 as Editor of the Week for her incredible work on article promotion. She has helped 73 articles be featured in the 'Did you know' section of the main page; no mean feat (especially presently). She often contributes helpful comments on the DYK talk page, helping with ideas and new editors to the process, but doesn't let her standard of quality drop. She has helped get Audie Murphy and Audie Murphy honors and awards to featured status and she even managed to get a DYK out of the topic. Her 40,000 edits over 7-and-a-half years receive too little appreciation for their scale. She is truly a great editor. In all, thousands of gnomish and not-so-gnomish edits have massively benefited not only DYK, but also other areas such as the hugely important Murphy articles. Sublime.

Thanks again for your efforts! Go Phightins! 11:57, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

WikiGnoming is one of the most satisfying tasks on Wikipedia, IMO. I feel humbled, considering Matty.007 is one of those "endangered species" of good editors who should be retained, and is currently undecided on whether to stay or go. But kudos to this project. We need more and more efforts to retain editors. Thanks for this acknowledgement. — Maile (talk) 14:01, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Audie Murphy[edit]

Sorry I didn't check the talk page -- nor was there any indication on the article in hidden text advising editors to do so. I personally disagree as Murphy was a US citizen and I believe mm/dd/yyyy format should be used, but if this is the consensus, so be it. I wasn't ignoring your talk page discussion -- I was unaware of it. Yours, Quis separabit? 13:17, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

You can disagree, but the DMY format was approved in various stages of numerous reviews. As for the other, please do not do rewrites of an FA article. — Maile (talk) 13:18, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
I acknowledge that. I haven't had cause to edit the Murphy article in a long long time so I was unaware. Quis separabit? 17:55, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
