  • Scott, have you looked in to whether you currently hold the record for longest active user who has gone in to retirement? 12 active years now? That's hard to beat. But I'm going to try. I'll post back to this page in 11 years, 8 months to inform you of your unseating and my impending retirement. In any case, much respect due. -wʃʃʍ- 05:58, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

  • I only wanted to ask a question about family trees and see if you could advise me on the best course of action. Of course, I understand if you don't feel inclined to answer it, but I hope you will take a moment to do so, here or on my own talk page.
First, again, thank you for your past work with family trees on Wikipedia. It helped me just by seeing it and emulating it on other articles. I was curious what you think should be done when two lines in a tree intersect and the hierarchy of one line is far lengthier than the other. See Template:Liloa/Piilani/Moana Family Tree where the descendant of Hakau has a far lengthier line than the figure's brother. Kaleiheana (w) (The (w) stands for wahine, which is Hawaiian for female) is the descendant. The source is provided next to the name. # 4 indicates that the female has a direct lineage from the Hakau, who was the brother of Umi-a-Liloa and that said female/wahine married a figure (Keakealanikane) who is directly descended from Umi. The two brothers and their father were very important figures in Hawaiian history and I think the lines are important enough to show in the tree. But the best I can come up with is to add all of the lines that don't fit properly into the tree with a single box crammed with everyone that doesn't fit. The differing lengths of lines appear to be due to the head start Hakua got from being much older, possible an adult already when Umi was born. It is also possible that because of Hakau's death, that line was no longer controlled by restrictions placed on the nobility (ali'i) in regards to marriage and children. Umi's first born became next ruler and his first born etc.. So, I am at a stand still on that for the moment. Hope you feel inclined to give me some advise...and I also hope that your'll return to Wikipedia some day in full. Thanks.--Mark Miller (talk) 22:25, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
