Ready for update: USA mountains, lakes etc.[edit]

Hi Rich. I have gone through the list you supplied at the bot request page. Could you please update it for me? Thanks. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 14:30, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

I will endeavour to do so. For my reference the original request is at this archive page. All the best: Rich Farmbrough14:57, 8 July 2014 (UTC).
This time there are 40,843 articles to consider, that's some 200 new articles. I'll let you know when I have the final list. All the best: Rich Farmbrough15:20, 8 July 2014 (UTC).

Dates of birth and death[edit]

Please be more careful when adding dates of births and deaths in articles. I have had to correct multiple ones over the last few days. When you don't know the date or year of death, like with Herbert Hamblen, then don't add a guess; your "c. 1920" turned out to be 1908. Please take care to use appropriate categories instead of placeholder ones as well, like you did in that same article. Fram (talk) 11:25, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Nice work Fram. Rich, you really used {{Footnotes}}? I had seen that code, almost one year ago when I had registered. It is outdated now. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 13:51, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • It's not "nice work" to assume bad faith.
  • "Reflist" is gobbledegook. I wanted to re-purpose {{References}} for that template, but unfortunately the unwise actions of certain editors has made that difficult. All the best: Rich Farmbrough13:58, 10 July 2014 (UTC).
"assume bad faith"? Your source didn't include c. 1920, no sources I found included it either, and I did find one that had the correct date. But apparently "c. 1920" wasn't a guess but something else? Just like your 1838 birth date for George Ranken, the previous article you created, was not a mistake but a typo you repeated in the article, the persondata and the category, without noticing that this would have made him only 18 years old at the time of his death? Right... Fram (talk) 14:07, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Norman Joseph Wisden. Since you had some involvement with the Norman Joseph Wisden redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Fram (talk) 14:02, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
