I Am the Greatest[edit]

I hope you're doing well and just taking a Wikibreak. As someone interested in Louisville-related topics, you might be interested in the titling discussion I have started at Talk:I Am the Greatest, and in the new article at I Am the Greatest (Cassius Clay album). —BarrelProof (talk) 04:07, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Yup, it's just a burnout break. I have other things I need to spend more time on. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 19:15, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Welcome back. I was getting worried about you – take care of yourself. —BarrelProof (talk) 22:33, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Sub-categories and Parent categories[edit]

For a category to be a valid subcategory of a parent category, all people who fit in the sub-category MUST also fall in the parent category for it to be valid per WP:SUBCAT. Sean Casey is legitimately in the category "Sportspeople in Louisville" by virtue of his playing for the Louisville Bats. However, he is not in any way, shape or form "from" Louisville - he is from New Jersey. There are hundreds of these cases, so "Sportspeople in Louisville" can not be a sub-category of "Sportspeople from Louisville," which is for people actually hailing from the city. The Bay Area category was wrong too, so I corrected it. Rikster2 (talk) 23:11, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

I understood this logic 100% already, even before I originally made this a subcat of "Sportspeople from..". As you saw in my revert edit, I was mimicking what was done elsewhere as it appeared to be the normal structure. And I can understand that approach -- If someone is looking at those "from", they may also want to drill down to those "in". So, basically, my stance is "whatever". At least you are striving for consistency here, and I commend you for that. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 23:18, 6 December 2014 (UTC)


Just ran across this Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sam Swope (businessman) and thought you might have better sourcing since you are in Louisville. I have access to the Herald-Leader archives, but not the Courier-Journal. Still, it looked to me like this guy might have been borderline notable. If not, so be it; you'd know better than I. Just looked like it might be potentially salvagable if you're interested. Acdixon (talk · contribs) 15:19, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
