Working on a school project =
Hey everyone I'm working on a project at Cornell University, in which a team of students takes a wikipedia page to edit. My group is working on the Schuylkill Navy. If anyone has any advice for how to attack this page please reach out to us. Thanks! Andrew, Eddie, and Janice ~~~~
Need any images?
I live in Philly, I go to Drexel, and I take images of things. My camera does a decent job, and I have access to some nice photomanipulation software to make sure things come out looking good. I don't have a heck of a lot of free time, but enough that I might be able to help out. Let me know if this sounds good to anyone. You can see some sample shots at the Eastern State Penitentiary, or take a look at my contributions over at the commons. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thesab (talk • contribs) 01:43, February 16, 2008
Kingsessing neighborhood vs Kingsessing Township/Southwest Philadelphia
My understanding is that the neighborhood of Kingsessing is not ceremonious with Southwest Philadelphia (the former Kingsessing Township), but that is is merely one neighborhood in the Southwest. Can someone conform this. Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talk) 15:02, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
Map for Garden Court
Garden Court, Philadelphia has a US Historic Place infobox – great!
In that infobox is a map of Pennsylvania, with a pin for Philadelphia – fine for a US Historic Place, but not very useful for a location in Philly.
How about a map of Philadelphia showing the location of Garden Court?
- The question has come up before in different guises for NRHP sites, perhaps for Waterloo, Iowa. Somebody in Waterloo said that the maps of Iowa with a pin for Waterloo wasn't very useful for folks who live in Iowa. Nevertheless, you gotta realize that not everybody knows where Waterloo, IA is and only a very few of our readers would ever benefit from having a street map of Waterloo. Same thing might go for Philly. A couple of issues:
- You can get a Google street map easily enough just by clicking on the coordinates
- The French Wikipedia has a "double map" system, where it shows the national map, but if you click on it it shows the local map. Given the coords to Google map, is this worth the effort?
- Philly is not, of course, Waterloo, Iowa. Maybe enough people know where it is that they don't need a PA map, and could use a local map.
Alphabetization in participant list
- @Dthomsen8: I noticed that Dthomsen8 had a
~~~~-type dated signature in the list in the position for "Thomsen" -- it happened to be just below the entry I was inserting for myself. When I saw a proper listing, properly set among the D's, I removed the misplaced signature.
- @Thunderball15: Similarly, I deleted Thunderball15's signature at the foot of the section, after the table and with a piped other name, and redundant to the correctly placed entry. Unlike Dthomsen8, Thunderball15 is redlinked: no user page, though there is a talk page, indicating activity by this user in June 2011 but not since.
Please join the discussion at the College Basketball Wikiproject for forming a consensus on the creation of a basic navigation template for college basketball teams. Creation of these templates will impact articles on Philadelphia related teams such as those in the Big Five. CrazyPaco (talk) 11:19, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
