No credit to the company who rebuilt the bartonsville covered bridge[edit]

I've noticed that the is no credit given to Cold River Bridges LLC. For being the company that rebuilt this bridge after damage from Irene, and that it was completed in record time. Also there is no mention of the fact that it is presumably the longest single-spanning covered bridge (without piers) in the country, there are lots of interesting details about the daunting task of completing the project in such a short time, as well as some rather interesting details about the techniques/strategies that were pioneered by this company specifically for this project.

Proposed WikiProject: United States Constitution[edit]

Hi editors and contributors: There is currently a proposed WikiProject which would focus on the United States Constitution. If you want to support the creation of this WikiProject, or want to join it when it is created, please voice your opinion, comments and suggestions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/United States Constitution. Thank you! CookieMonster755 (talk) 20:53, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

With respect, I don't think there is much need for such a project. The scope is so small no more than a couple hundred articles would be affected, they are already covered in multiple other projects and most importantly there are already too many dead US related projects now IMO. (talk) 21:24, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
At least you responded to my inquire, Face-smile.svg Thank you CookieMonster755 (talk) 21:31, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I don't edit much anymore...too much drama on this site and not enough people wanting to build an encyclopedia. Case in point, they banned the person that was most active on keeping this project and most of the other US project running because he thought editors should be treated fairly and admins should be accountable when they intentionally misuse the admin tools. This project has been basically dead ever since and thousands of edits not getting done a month. Its really pretty sad. (talk) 21:48, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
It's not a problem! And talking about drama: Yes there can be drama, but editors like you and me need to keep Wikipedia as a encyclopedia, not gossiping on talk pages. This is not an appropriate place to talk about our personal experience with Wikipedia, so you may post on my talk page to continue this conversation. Also, you have many block logs. Is that why you said you think administrators abuse power? Talk to me if you need somebody to talk to. Back on subject: Yes, I think some WikiProjects have been dead recently, but this project I am proposing will be ran by only people who are active and kind people. I also will run the project, since I am active a lot. If you feel free to change your mind about not supporting this new wiki project, feel free to do so. Cheers!

Wikipedia:WikiProject Hillary Rodham Clinton[edit]

Interested project members are welcome to join WikiProject Hillary Rodham Clinton, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia articles related to Hillary Rodham Clinton. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:21, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

@Another Believer:. I noticed you don't have a template or anything yet. Are you planning on creating a new template for that project or simply adding it as a supported project of WPUS. Let me know and I can help you implement whatever change you want. May I also suggest getting a list of articles together that should be included, you might also want to drop a note on WikiProject Feminism if you haven't already, there are likely some individuals such as Missvain that may be interested in this as well. I could see this being a good way of improving a lot of articles in in the next few months while her campaign is going on as well as allowing better visibility of vandals and manipulation. (talk) 21:25, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I was planning to start creating templates, article lists, banners, etc. over time, but was going to see what other project members might be interested in working on first. I would most certainly welcome any assistance re: WikiProject structure, templates, banners, etc. I also posted a note at WikiProject X inviting participants to use WP:HRC as a pilot for any new tools they may be working on, especially since this is a brand new project. I will be sure to notify WP:Feminism as well. Thanks for the suggestions! ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:57, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
No problem. Its about time to go night night where I am so I'll draft out the template tomorrow and post it tomorrow evening when I get home from work unless someone beats me to it. If you check out the Members tab of this project you'll see a couple bots listed that might be useful. Also, once the project is created there are only a couple bots left that can do WikiPrject anner tagging and that's Anomiebot by Anomie and Yobot by Magioladitis. One of them may be willing to do a run once you refine the list of articles...if needed. Like I said, worst case scenario, even if this project doesn't gain steam, it will be a good way to monitor the article set while the campaign is going on. I envision a lot of vandalism and shenanigans. (talk) 02:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
@Another Believer: sorry it took so long but I dropped the code for your Wikiproject template at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Hillary Rodham Clinton. I tried to create the template but it wouldn't let me as an IP. Its just a basic outline and there is a lot that could be added but that should be enough to get started. There are still a few pages that need to be created but the red links on the template should lead you there. Please let me know if you need anything else. At least until someone blocks me for being an IP. (talk) 00:51, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Good luck to those involved in this endeavor, may I remind those participating of WP:NOTADVOCATE, WP:BALANCE, and WP:NEU.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:25, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't think anyone is advocating doing something like that, but I do think this would be a good way to keep an eye on related articles. She has been affiliated with some controversial stuff so its bound to attract spammers, trolls and vandals not to mention the likely opposing politician. (talk) 00:41, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
