Women in the military suggestion[edit]

I created a list of articles in my sandbox that can be added to the various women in the military timelines. I separated them out by the ones with pictures, and sorted them so women of color and LGBT women are priorities. If you want to help me add them to the timelines that would be a big help. Here's the link: My sandbox. I'm thinking of potentially going so far as to create a timeline or timelines of pre-WWI women in war in the United States, such as women in the Revolutionary War (like Deborah Sampson, for example) and women in the Civil War (like Cathay Williams). It might be a good idea since even though the information is more sparse compared to the Women in war in the United States timeline, we still have a fairly large glut of it. What do you think? Asarelah (talk) 12:55, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

I've begun an Experimental pre-WWI timeline in my sandbox by copy-pasting from other timelines. Let me know what you think. I know that moving the entries from the main timelines to separate ones would shorten the main timelines significantly, but there's plenty of non-U.S. info that can be added in to fill them out.

Hello! As there is a Wikipedia article about you, you are cordially invited to contribute a short audio recoding of your spoken voice, so that our readers may know what you sound like and how you pronounce your name. Details of how to do so, and examples, are at Wikipedia:Voice intro project. Please feel free to ask for help or clarification on the project talk page, or my talk page.--1Veertje (talk) 13:54, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Puerto Rico shared knowledge
Thank you, Tony, devoted "to preserving the history and accomplishments of Puerto Ricans in the U.S. military", for quality articles on Puerto Rico and Latin American history, such as the Mozambican War of Independence, for correcting yourself, for a user page with FA qualities, sharing gang life and "positive experiences and recognitions", - you are a veteran awesome Wikipedian (11 May 2007, 7 April 2009)!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:29, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

why was my page deleted?[edit]

--Robe76A (talk) 15:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

  • What??? :-). Sorry, but you never had a page. What was removed was your addition of the surname of Maldonado as an Irish surname in the article "Irish immigration to Puerto Rico" since Maldonado is in reality a Hispanic surname. Tony the Marine (talk) 17:23, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

A suggestion[edit]

My edits were verifiable by looking at the book (The Blood of Olympus), which I named, and which is out there and can be picked up and looked through, so there was no need to lecture me about sources. There was certainly no need to undo my edits. If you run across an unsourced assertion, try tagging it next time.Methychroma (talk) 04:21, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

  • I appreciate your message, but do not come with an attitude with me as if I was lecturing you about sources. Eventually, I saw your source accepted your revert of mine. I even moved the section in the admirals article to it's proper place, or didn't you see that? I have been here way too long to be receiving messages with an attitude from users such as yourself. Tony the Marine (talk) 17:31, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
  • By the way, if you wish you may add a mention of the cartoon character to the biography of Ana G. Méndez, the founder of a university system which is named after her, who was a direct descendant of the Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresí, on her mother's side.
