Thank you,

Baltimore St. Patrick's Day beating[edit]

Hi, guys!

There has been a beating at St. Patrick's Day in Baltimore, and there's press coverage:

Do you think it would qualify for an article yet? Or should I try to find more sources? WhisperToMe (talk) 22:29, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Luke Maryland Pollution being under-emphasized.[edit]

It seems someone is altering the Luke, Maryland article to downplay the really huge amount of pollution in that town caused by the paper mill. Not only does the town stink to high heaven, (well, that could be considered original research) but the State of Maryland has identified it as huge "point source" of mercury. The place is poisoned, and though Wikipedia is not supposed to be political there is no question at all that it's appropriate to report it as there are plenty of soruces for it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.61.141.90 (talk) 20:32, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

You mentioned plenty of sources; if they're reliable, you're welcome to list them. The Luke, Maryland article already includes a sentence/paragraph on mercury pollution from its paper plant, backed up by a 2008 Baltimore Sun article. —ADavidB 06:26, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Luke Maryland Mercury Pollution[edit]

I think there should be more emphasis on the terrible mercury pollution from the paper mill in Luke Maryland.

This paper mill is putting out something like 250 pounds of mercury a year.

It is upstream from Washington DC and so pollutes all the lower Potomac, meaning a huge tidal area in the lower Chesapeake.

I can go looking for references on this, will there be a problem with any of this with the right references? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.61.139.116 (talk) 21:48, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Just remember that editors here are to take a neutral stance. References should be to reliable sources and represent all significant views on the subject.

Popular pages tool update[edit]

As of January, the popular pages tool has moved from the Toolserver to Wikimedia Tool Labs. The code has changed significantly from the Toolserver version, but users should notice few differences. Please take a moment to look over your project's list for any anomalies, such as pages that you expect to see that are missing or pages that seem to have more views than expected. Note that unlike other tools, this tool aggregates all views from redirects, which means it will typically have higher numbers. (For January 2014 specifically, 35 hours of data is missing from the WMF data, which was approximated from other dates. For most articles, this should yield a more accurate number. However, a few articles, like ones featured on the Main Page, may be off).

Web tools, to replace the ones at tools:~alexz/pop, will become available over the next few weeks at toollabs:popularpages. All of the historical data (back to July 2009 for some projects) has been copied over. The tool to view historical data is currently partially available (assessment data and a few projects may not be available at the moment). The tool to add new projects to the bot's list is also available now (editing the configuration of current projects coming soon). Unlike the previous tool, all changes will be effective immediately. OAuth is used to authenticate users, allowing only regular users to make changes to prevent abuse. A visible history of configuration additions and changes is coming soon. Once tools become fully available, their toolserver versions will redirect to Labs.

If you have any questions, want to report any bugs, or there are any features you would like to see that aren't currently available on the Toolserver tools, see the updated FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Mr.Z-bot (talk) (for Mr.Z-man) 05:15, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

FAR[edit]

I have nominated Music of Maryland for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Dana boomer (talk) 16:59, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
