Shoeless Joe[edit]

I changed Shoeless Joe Jackson's batting average to the correct value. Here is the reference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Desertmonk (talkcontribs) 22:11, 26 May 2014 (UTC)


I keep noticing your articles getting marked as reviewed, so I thought I'd do this since there's obviously no need for your work to be checked. I hope you don't think it's an imposition. You don't actually have to do anything, but maybe watchlist the page for a bit to see what happens. I have no doubt it'll be routinely granted.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 22:11, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Well, that was fast. They gave it to you. You won't even notice, but it'll trim the unpatrolled pages list. Congrats!— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 22:28, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Previous versions[edit]

When looking at the article history tab, you can compare two versions and then undo to go back to the first version. You can also click the date and see the previous version, "edit " to open the old version and then save to re-establish the article as it was then. No fancy roll back tools needed. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 12:05, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Out of Curiosity[edit]

Just out of curiosity, why did you rewrite the Zoorassic Park section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nmwalter (talkcontribs) 03:27, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

I completely understand! Thank you for clarifying and helping to make Wikipedia even better! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nmwalter (talkcontribs) 12:19, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Culver City, CA[edit]

If you're going to remove content from this page for supposedly unsourced content, then you need to be consistent and remove all content for "unsourced content". That would include Drew Barrymore (whoo by the way did *not* live in CC), Jack Black, Dee Dee Davis, Jackson Browne, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Robert Petway[edit]

The link referenced in the article shows evidence that Petway may have been born in Gee's Bend, Alabama Boykin). According to the article, there's as much evidence, if not more, that he was born there as opposed to Yazoo City. Is there another reason this was deleted? Just wondering. Thanks!

Principality of Sealand[edit]

The update tag was needed because events of 2013 were mentioned in the future sense, and because certain things need to fixed regarding the death of Prince Roy. pbp 19:54, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Chinese Canadian[edit]

Hello, I delete your editing of the page Chinese Canadian. My younger brother is a Chinese Canadian, he speaks French with a French accent, because he learned French in cartoons before going to school. And there are many Chinese Canadian who speaks French with a French accent, because they learned French in cartoons, or they don't want to speak with a Canadian accent, the Canadian accent is strange, the word tête is pronounced "tight".

Hey, thanks for helping with the Lake Charles article. The only thing I don't like is the picture under the industry setting. It's an old picture, and only barely shows the industry in the background, while some family is in the foreground. It doesn't really do much justice for the topic at hand.

CTtcg (talk) 15:18, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Well if I had to choose one, it would be the Sunset over Olin-Mathieson picture. I just don't think showing individuals in a picture like that is a good idea, even if they are older photos. CTtcg (talk) 16:02, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

I like the edits on Prien Lake too. It's good to have more information there. I readjusted the pics. When the new casino is built that old photo can be replaced with one showing both of them. CTtcg (talk) 20:04, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

A cheeseburger for you![edit]

Greenwood High School[edit]

You are welcome. As for fixing it myself, I might not have the correct information or the inclination to look for it. Further, I have made what I consider to be helpful revisions to articles, only to receive a stern note from someone, and to have the edit reverted. Given the tight censorship maintained by Wikipedia, I have decided that simply pointing out the error, and letting anyone who desires to do so, fix it, is the best course of action. John Paul Parks (talk) 15:53, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

I was referring to past editing experiences involving other articles, and not involving the article on Greenwood High School. My impression of Wikipedia is that each article, or group of articles, has a hovering sponsor or patron who monitors it constantly, even obsessively, and reverts edits of which he or she disapproves.John Paul Parks (talk) 20:39, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Klamath Falls[edit]

Hi, Magnolia.

Thanks for your observation. The name has two distinct parts: Klamath + Falls, each with their own origin. Klamath, although tough to find an exact origin, is intimately related to the people that lived in the "region". Falls relates to the white waters just downstream of the Link River Dam. Perhaps the epigraph ought to be rewritten for clarity to reflect these two unique aspects of the name of the city. Good day Bobjgalindo (talk) 22:29, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Why don't we move this to the talk? I think some revealing data can come out and improve that section ... no? Bobjgalindo (talk) 22:36, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Edit reversion[edit]

Hi Magnolia677,

Sure the images are mine, but I'm not adding them for my own benefit; I don't even say they're mine anywhere but each image description page. I added them because Valhalla has very few images and could use some, so free images of anything Valhalla should be most welcome. I also made the gallery collapsed, because I know the article is primarily about Valhalla, and don't want fire department images so prominent on the page. So I don't see why the images aren't welcome on the article.--ɱ (talk) 14:53, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

McDowell County WV...hmmmmmmmmm[edit]

LOOKY FINALLY made it there..YEGADS, what a trip. NICE pic of Elkhorn by the way......Coal town guy (talk) 14:03, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Appreciate the note, I have been doing interviews with folks from the area, Mom has started the long crappy path of alzheimers and I thought this would be my last shot at a cogent interview about a long list of places in WV with her as was....THEN I did a large trip, and BAM, back to the world of edits again/...sorry fr the lack of responses...the interviews were not as easy as I thought for sure, learned alot.Coal town guy (talk) 14:38, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Jenkinjones, WV[edit]

MOST EXCELLENT, I see you made it to Jenkinjones, DID you perhaps see the Jenkinjones Union House and of course the Pocahontas Fuel buildings?? I wish I knew you were there, Andy who lives above the offices is a nice guy who happens to reside in the clerks offices above.........Coal town guy (talk) 18:37, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

I got to the two Pocahontas buildings at the south end of town, but most of the rest of the place seemed residential or abandoned. Approached the town from Virginia in the south. Interesting demographics in Appalachia; the highest average age in the county, and epidemic overdose rates. Everything revolved around coal. Still, lovely people and breathtaking scenery. Magnolia677 (talk) 20:01, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
AWWWW MAN, you missed [THIS] and [THIS]...get back when you canCoal town guy (talk) 21:01, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Killarney WV[edit]

Killarney disappeared in totum by ~2002, or 03. In the winter we had the ability to see the house foundations, thats pretty much gone now, in 09, they wiped the hollers slick due to flooding, and by the way, that was the death knell for Pickshin WV as well. There WAS a church there, but its gone. The processing plant is East Gulf Proper BUT all other belts feed the East Gulf Plant. When you follow the belt down what we call coal city road, it stops at the East Gulf Plant. Believe it or not, (you probably will), there was a time when you could sit on steps of the old houses..The mountain in the newer topo maps is also a misnomer. That mountain is the spent coal/waste pile of another town, Lillybrook. Lillybrook, has some VERY small homes that are on the edge of being dozed, but that town proper should also be a ghost town. Lillybrook was for all intents a giant, as was Killarney, its old processing plant was gargantuan even by todays standards.Coal town guy (talk) 14:15, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Did I ever tell you, how much I miss it?...Coal town guy (talk) 14:36, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Few places are as breathtakingly beautiful. Mines, trains, mountains, rivers...and nice people. Hard not to miss all that! Magnolia677 (talk) 14:41, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
As a child, I bragged that I never owned a train set, or really any train toy, I had real ones to play with.Coal town guy (talk) 14:43, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
UPDATE, added something from Killarney.........Coal town guy (talk) 14:17, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Sports Stadiums[edit]

I have made a start on reverting Ahellweg's attempt to rewrite history. I did 15 reversions, in chronological order, from his oldest one up to Target Field. I'm telling you just so that if you plan to revert some yourself, you needn't bother checking those. It's boring work, so I doubt I'll be doing any more. Maproom (talk) 20:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I actually left the message at the help desk in the hope that someone might be able to "nuke" the edits. I may try a few myself. Thanks again. Magnolia677 (talk) 20:54, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I've done most of the rest, in chronological order, up to Heinz Field. There's about 20 left. Maproom (talk) 18:27, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Alligator, Mississippi[edit]

Hello, you deleted my section. But i don't know how to insert resources, SwampRockMusic (talk) 17:21, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Lake Gogebic[edit]

The Lake does lie in both Ontonagon and Gogebic Counties and it is one of the largest geographical features of the area hence the reason to add it to the Ontonagon County page. The view of the photograph shows the Ontonagon County portion of the lake. Skyrunner75 (talk) 17:25, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Westwood Studios[edit]

Hi there, I've changed the edit back and replaced the citation needed tag with a real reference now. I was going to get back to it later. Usually {{cn}} tags and citations themselves shouldn't be in the lead (as per WP:LEAD) so I removed that tag and replaced it with a real one in the article. Thank you.

County census data[edit]

The sources are up to date but the population density data is not. Urbanative (talk) 00:24, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

The U.S. Census Bureau also releases estimates and the last one was released a few months ago for 2013. Population density is calculated by dividing the population by the land area. Urbanative (talk) 03:20, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Gregory Peck[edit]

If you are to delete the birth years of Peck's children from his second marriage, how come you have yet to delete the birth years of the children from his first? There are no sources to prove theirs either. Hitcher vs. Candyman (User talk:Hitcher vs. Candyman) 20:18, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

2015 Pan American Games[edit]

This is a template that changes the link there from simply the country (Brazil) to the page as destination of the tournament (Brazil at the 2015 Pan American Games). Check it out. That's the pattern for this kind of situation. ;) Indech (talk) 17:55, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

No, it's there for a reason! If you look at the template code when editing, the number can be left out erasing it in the code itself. For instance: {{flagPASO|BRA|2015|126}} to {{flagPASO|BRA|2015}}. But it's there because it shows the number of athletes qualified so far. Check out when it's more complete in articles like 2014 Youth Olympic Games.
