Schuyler Copper Mine[edit]

Hi. I moved Schuyler Copper Mine into article space last night, but forgot to tell you; great article, well done. You might want to think about whether there are any pages which can link to Schuyler Copper Mine ... right now it's an orphan. thanks --Tagishsimon (talk) 07:50, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

So you have; excellent. That's the only way they get read ;) You might also want to think about a WP:DYK nomination ... I'll maybe have a look at that later today, but you'd be welcome to jump the gun and self-nominate (but the cost of a self-nomination is that you'd have to inspect someone else's DYK.) Assuming success, that would get it onto the front page for 12 hours or so. --Tagishsimon (talk) 12:49, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

I'd be happy to nominate this piece and would like to use a hook such as the below, but the info would have to been added as an inline citation. This would slight change the article as written, but I believe most sources support fact that it was not first-built engine in America, but first ever use in America. (not only in copper mine). If you feel comfortable with and make change think it be a great DYK article.Djflem (talk) 21:55, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

DYK that.....the first (use of a) steam engine in America took place in 1753 at Schuyler's Copper Mine?

Leinhard, John. H. (1988-1997). "No. 1085 The First American Steam Engine". Engines of Our Ingenuity. www.uh.edu (University of Houston). Retrieved 2011-12-14.  Check date values in: |date= (help)

We'd better sort out the date first. The engine was delivered in 1753 but not steamed until 1755 according both to http://www.uh.edu/engines/epi1085.htm and the current ref 4 - Woodward 1944, p. 49. About the engine, Woodward p.50 states "This engine was one of the first three steam engines, possibly the earliest, to be erected in North America." --Tagishsimon (talk) 22:40, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
FWIW, one of the key DYK checks is that the reference material exactly backs up the sentence in which it is used as a reference. I'm a bit concerned that "In 1753, it was the site of the first use in America of a steam engine to pump water out of the mine.[4]" is not supported on p.49 of Woodward to which the ref [4] points. My reading was that p.49 burbled on about the building process, etc, and it was not until p.50 that we got any claim from Woodward, and that was the "one of the first three" claim. Happily the Leinhard reference looks very supportive for the "first use" claim. I don't know enough about the history of steam engines in the US to advise you on how to make use of Woodward's "one of the first three" reference. Have fun! --Tagishsimon (talk) 23:18, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
It's better. I still don't think ref 4 supports the assertion made. You might just want to withdraw that reference, or else note its claim - one of the first three. "Different claims are made that it was one of the first three engines in the USA[4]"? Sadly we've missed the DYK deadline. I wouldn't worry over this one overmuch; get on and do your next ;) --Tagishsimon (talk) 22:09, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

HMS Kingfisher (1770)[edit]

There is already a stub article for this ship sloop. I note that you have drafted an article under user:Zeete for this ship, and clearly the two should be combined. Can you merge your relevent information into that shown in the live stub article? I should mention that the slight differences in dimensions quoted are due to the fact that the live article contains the actual (as-built) dimensions, whereas your draft article gives the design dimensions for the Swan class ship sloops. Rif Winfield (talk) 13:54, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Many thanks! The article is considerably improved. Note that all wooden ships, by the nature of "give" in the material of construction, finally emerged when measured after launch with slight differences from the designed dimensions, albeit only by a few incres or even fractions of an inch (most of the time, measurements were taken to the nearest eighth of an inch); the Navy Board had the principal deimensions measured for every ship or vessel upon its launch, whether built in a Royal dockyard or by private contractor (in the latter case, the exact dimensions determined the burthen tonnage of the craft, which in turn determined the price paid to the builder, which was always per burthen ton).

Great job on Government House, New York. It inspired me to add the other unused presidential mansion (Philadelphia) to the White House article. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 15:48, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks. The two unused presidential mansions are indeed interesting. Zeete (talk) 16:35, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Response given. Since you've found the HABS documentation, would you mind expanding the article with it? Right now the length is rather minimal, and it would definitely be more helpful with additional information. Nyttend (talk) 23:40, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Ways to improve Nicolaes Visscher I[edit]

Hi, I'm Versace1608. Zeete, thanks for creating Nicolaes Visscher I!

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. versace1608 (talk) 18:12, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Announcing: NRHP Fall Photo Contest![edit]

The WP:NRHP Fall 2014 Photo Contest will kick off at midnight eastern time on Monday September 1! This is an opportunity for all folks with a camera (or a sketchpad and scanner, doncha know) and an interest in the National Register of Historic Places to just have some low-key fun and maybe get some barnstars. Come submit some photos or pose a challenge to your fellow editors. And maybe, just maybe, along the line we'll improve the encyclopedia... (Note that while this contest is intentionally concurrent with Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 and the Wikipedia Summer of Monuments, there ain't gonna be no cash prizes or press releases here. But compete in 'em all if you like - we won't be jealous.) — Ipoellet (talk) 22:55, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
