Categories by county[edit]

There are a number of red-linked categories relating to populated places in America, e.g. Category:Unincorporated communities in Estill County, Kentucky. I propose to create some of these over the next few days, if there are no objections. All the best: Rich Farmbrough22:55, 12 August 2014 (UTC).

PhinDeli Town Buford[edit]

Thoughts on Talk:PhinDeli Town Buford, Wyoming#Name change?

VPOTUS was not part of the cabinet until 1919[edit]

Starting in 1919, President Woodrow Wilson asked his Vice President ("VPOTUS"), Thomas R. Marshall, to sit in on his cabinet. This is believed to be the first instance of a VPOTUS being considered at least minimally as part of a President's cabinet. Until recently, all VPOTUS were included in the cabinet navboxes. I recently took them out, but now I realize perhaps I should have had a discussion of the changes first. Please add your comments here. Thanks! —GoldRingChip 15:57, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of United States for GA[edit]

United States has been nominated for Good article status and a review has been carried out. Interested editors are invited to assist with improving the article to the comments at Talk:United States/GA2. After these fixes have been made it will pass and become a Good article once again.

This nomination has now passed; United States is a Good article. Rcsprinter123 (chatter) @ 21:55, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Tabor Store from Buckskin Joe[edit]

I was in Canon City several years ago and at that time the buildings at Buckskin Joe were being removed and I was told they had been purchased by a gentleman from Eagle County, Colorado and were being moved there to his property. That was from one of the men working on the move. So the location information of Tabor's Store has probably changed. (talk) 05:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)Mary A Best, Leadville, CO

Homeless veterans in the United States[edit]

I'd like to gain the communities attention to the Homeless veterans in the United States. It is in very poor shape for a subject which has received significant coverage in multiple reliable sources. I hope others can help me improve this article. Thanks in advance for your time and effort.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:50, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Mustang or mustang... should we continue to capitalize it?[edit]
