Better source request for File:1985-SunCity.jpg[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for February 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Roger Hilsman, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Negros (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

I agree, and actually have a couple of aeronautical sources that seem to be authoritative and which do mention him in passing. Please hold the nomination for the time being, as I have to dig 'em out. thanks, Coretheapple (talk) 18:17, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: Mitt Romney[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Mitt Romney know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on March 12, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 12, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Mitt Romney in 2013

Mitt Romney (born 1947) is an American businessman who was Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, by his parents Lenore and George Romney, and spent two years in France as a Mormon missionary. He married Ann Davies in 1969, with whom he has had five children. After studying at Brigham Young and Harvard universities, he joined the management consultancy Bain & Company before co-founding the spin-off investment firm Bain Capital. He unsuccessfully ran as the Republican candidate in the 1994 Massachusetts election for Senate against Ted Kennedy. He relaunched his political career after successfully running the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, he helped enact state health care reform legislation, the first of its kind in America. Romney won the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, becoming the first Mormon to be a major party presidential nominee, but lost the election to Barack Obama by a 332–206 electoral college margin and by 51–47 percent in the popular vote.

time not wasted
Thank you, Jonathan, for quality articles on people who appear on front pages (like yourself), such as Mitt Romney, Nancy Reagan and John McCain presidential campaign, 2000, reaching millions, for being the watchdog of Hilary Rodham Clinton and others, for convincing ("Advice for editing political articles: Don't."), for singing "People Got to Be Free", - repeating: you are an awesome Wikipedian (30 July 2010)!

Re Charles Keating[edit]

Sorry. I was just trimming in light of Keating's recent death. Quis separabit? 02:19, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

I restored the deadlink I removed. As far as POV, I would say terms like "Indeed" (not in quotes), or "well known", rather than just "known", depending on the circumstances. Stuff like that. Why don't you compare the diffs and see if the article doesn't look a tad better. If not tell me where I screwed up. Yours, Quis separabit? 02:46, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
This is the diff between my first edit and the current version. Aside from the above re POV, a lot of text was simply moved or merged in a way I thought had a better flow and were more interrelated. Other stuff is rv "Keating" when overused and replaced with a pronoun provided it was clear which Keating (Charles) was the subject. Yours, Quis separabit? 02:46, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
OK, if you want. I'm sorry. I was only trying to improve the article. You can delete my edits right now, go back to the last best edit and work from there. I didn't know you were that article's maintainer. I've never edited the Keating article anyway as far as I remember. About the hidden "ISBN needed" notations, I will talke your advice. Yours, Quis separabit? 02:55, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

3RR warning[edit]

MastCell reminded me - though my edits were in trying to improve the biography, but I note that you have breached 3RR yourself and might also be advised to self-revert. Cheers. Collect (talk) 18:02, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
