I manage my talk page with the following guidelines to keep the high volume of posts and 140 active talk page stalkers in some sort of order:

  1. Please start new topics at the bottom of the page, even if it is related to a section above. Otherwise it is difficult to find the posting.
  2. I will reply to your posts on this page to keep threading unless requested or unless it is extremely urgent.
  3. Lately, my activity levels have been unpredictable; it may be a while before I get around to answering posts or emails. If it's urgent, it may be best to try and find someone else if at all possible.
  4. Unlike some other administrators, I generally do mind if you undo my administrative actions without discussing it with me, unless it was an obvious procedural error on my part.
  5. I sometimes close discussions when it is clear that nothing good will come out of them. I reserve the right to do so at my own discretion. I also reserve the right to rollback any further comments on that discussion topic.

Inactive sysops (Tr. wiki)[edit]


Noumenon and Tembelejderha have no actions and no edits for two years. A few months ago, Noumenons checkuser rights has been removed according to global policy. Could you remove their sysop rights?

Just a heads up that user Squidward674 whom you blocked 3 days ago, is now unblocked and continuing to recreate the same types of articles that got him blocked originally, you may want to monitor the situation. War wizard90 (talk) 04:43, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Interstate 8, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tropical Storm Kathleen. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:03, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

State highways[edit]

Hello! In Numbered highways in the United States, state highways appear to be a system that is independent from interstate highways and U.S. routes. I assume state highways refer to those with name "California State Route xxx". However, in all state highway articles, like State highways in California and Texas state highways, interstate highways and U.S. routes are also categorized as the "state highway". I am a little bit confused by this. Could you please let me know some about this? AndyHe829 (talk) 01:55, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

I can only speak to how California handles this; they tell me other states are similar, but I don't know that for sure. According to the official route definitions, there is no difference between an Interstate, a U.S. Route, or a State Route, so technically all of them are state highways, and are generally maintained by Caltrans. The Federal Highway Administration does not maintain roads directly. --Rschen7754 02:21, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
