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).

Uncategorized media from National Archives[edit]

Hi all. I'd like to invite interested editors to help clear out the backlog of thousands of uncategorized files at Media from the National Archives and Records Administration needing categories. The subjects range from military to political to agriculture and more, and proper categorization into multiple categories aids Wikipedia editors and the general public in finding appropriate media. Categorizing media works much like categorizing Wikipedia articles, although can be more specific (e.g. a black and white photograph of a female politician could be categorized under "Politicians from Maine" as well as "Black and white photographs of seated women facing left"), and like Wikipedia categorization, the most specific relevant categories should be used. More specific subsets of the National Archives images can be viewed at National Archives and Records Administration/Categorize. There are tools such as Cat-a-lot to help facilitate the categorization of large amounts of files. Cheers! --Animalparty-- (talk) 21:53, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

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

Watergate burglaries[edit]

I'm unsure about this article. It has problems that I cannot describe. I'm hoping that you can get involved and clean it up. --George Ho (talk) 03:28, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

I've noticed that for awhile, too, but I have no idea where to start. It is also noted to be of low importance on the Wikiproject's importance scale. Given that it was the impetus for the removal of one of the most powerful men in the world from his office, I would think it would be of high or top importance. - Location (talk) 07:25, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

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)
