Brown's Island Dam Walk[edit]

Thanks for your help with the Brown's Island Dam Walk article! I appreciate the facts you added. I was thinking of adding a whole section to the article dealing with the history of the structure being used as a dam, along with a description of its operations. Thanks again! Peace, MPS (talk) 22:12, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome! I was thinking of adding more information on the dam and old power station but wasn't exactly sure what to do because the article is about a future walkway and not solely a dam. I like the idea of an early history section and operations. I couldn't access some books on Google that had a lot of information but I did find this. You seem to be a Richmond scholar, not sure if you have any more information.--NortyNort (Holla) 00:08, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Scott's Run Nature Preserve, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hemlock. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Bailey's Dam[edit]

I noticed that you added the category 1864 establishments in Louisiana to Bailey's Dam using HotCat. Although remnants of the dam apparently remain to this day, it seems odd to me to include this temporary dam which was intentionally breached soon after its construction in an establishment category. I looked around for some guidance on what might be in an "establishment" category but did not find anything conclusive. I found uses of the term and its Wiktionary definition which connected with the foundation of a company or organization or group. I must say that I did not find anything that necessarily excluded it from use with structures. I did notice there is no "establishment" category for the article about the dam pictured on your user page. It's no big deal but I thought I would raise it for your consideration or comment.

Hello Donner. I know Bailey's Dam is a site and as you said, still somewhat visible today. It is also an NHRP site as well of which many such articles have the category. I tend to be a little bit liberal with categories and assume since it was established in that year, the category should apply. The dam was temporary and hardly exists but as a historic site, I felt the category was due. I don't see it as a big deal either. The 'Establishments' category is also a bit new to me as well. A recent discussion highlighted the fact that most dam articles do not have this particular category. Since then I have been adding it as dam articles appear on my watchlist or I come across them in editing.--NortyNort (Holla) 23:48, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. Donner60 (talk) 04:34, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Kárahnjúkar Hydropower Plant/Project[edit]

Do you understand the nature of redirects? Kárahnjúkar Hydropower Project redirects to Kárahnjúkar Hydropower Plant. I'm just trying to get rid of this redirect but you can keep the visual text as it is, in this case, Kárahnjúkastífla Dam. Stefán Örvar Sigmundsson (talk) 01:16, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Since you didn't have an edit summary, I had no idea what the purpose of your edit was. I assumed it was an editor confused with the name.--NortyNort (Holla) 11:54, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

sequence of dams along a river[edit]

hi NortyNort, since you are the dam expert, i've got a question for you, concerning the sequence of dams along a river. ist it

i stumbled across this, because Tributaries of a river, e.g. Columbia River

are only left/right when you run the river from the source downstream. so why are dams listed from the mouth upstream ? --Agentjoerg (talk) 09:27, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Generally, they are listed from the source on down. I don't think there is a 'standard operating procedure' but I haven't seen it another way... until today. The Columbia River template seems to be mis-ordered. It is right on the list though.--NortyNort (Holla) 11:58, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

ok, sounds good. then I'll change the Template:Rio Grande (Brazil) dams so that the dams will be listed from the source on down. --Agentjoerg (talk) 14:09, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for doing that. Thanks for the compliment, by the way. I wouldn't consider myself 'the expert', but I try.--NortyNort (Holla) 19:57, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
