Comment from Alphacatmarnie that belongs at Talk:Mighty Servant 2[edit]

33. "Mighty Servant / USS Robards"

Hi the article is about the Mighty Servant, the USS Robards is part of her operational history and so are many other charters, These ship transport many naval vessels of several different countries as well as just the US but, it should not be attached to the opening sentence of the article specifically when there is a whole section on the US Navy ship.

Regards

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Park River (Connecticut), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Watershed (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Newkirk Monument[edit]

I saw Henry Whitely and Allan Thomson (businessman). If you put any more of these stubs up, please consider tagging them with a stub template and putting a category on them. I would also fill out the talk page templates. --evrik (talk) 18:13, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks; it's good advice, and as a responsible Wikipedian I should be doing more of that. And I would love nothing more than to have help adding to the small amount I've found on these people who together accomplished something momentous. But I've seen little evidence that stub tags, Talk page templates, and broad categories like "19th-century railroad executives" actually entice other editors to flesh out stubs. Have you?

SSSS[edit]

Look, I sense an issue here. And no, I'm not an ideologue. I really do think that the references are sketchy at best. Can we do better? Can we find solid acceptable references for this sort of thing? I'm thinking of Moxie Marlinspike, who might just have the verifiable references for this. Does it go on? You and I *know* it does. But I feel that Wikipedia must have the best and most solid references, otherwise Wikipedia can not be taken seriously. I am not against this list, I feel sure that valid entries exist. But they must be "religiously" vetted to withstand the Tea Bagger Contingent who will trot out disturbing and inaccurate prattle about a Wikipedia "Left Wing bias".

My initial reaction upon seeing the deletion was "someone just wants this to be gone," but then you pointed out that all the names were poorly cited or completely uncited. Your points are all well taken. PRRfan (talk) 02:27, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
There is potential for a section, but it must be solid. Taco Viva (talk) 03:56, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Smiles[edit]

I like your User Page. Lots of useful code and links... Taco Viva (talk) 21:35, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I find it far easier to keep a "toolbox" of bits of wikicode than to remember or search for them. PRRfan (talk) 02:28, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

R. Tait McKenzie[edit]

Of course, I'm not disputing citizenship, but there has to be a way to convey that the bulk of his career as a sculptor (30+ years out of 38 or so) was spent in Philadelphia. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:47, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Why not just say so? "Born in Ramsay Township, Lanark County, Ontario, Canada, he lived in several cities, including Montreal and — for a quarter-century — in Philadelphia, before finally residing at the Mill of Kintail in Almonte, Lanark County, Ontario, Canada." Or some such. I was just intrigued by "Canadian-born", which seemed to suggest that he had at some point switched citizenship, and was fascinated to find that the sculptor of "The Ideal Scout" — so widely embraced across America — remained Canadian. PRRfan (talk) 17:33, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
It makes me think of William Shatner, who was born in Canada, but whose career since the late-1950s has been in the United States. After retirement from Penn, I wonder if McKenzie resided at Almonte full time. He did die in Philadelphia. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 03:09, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
