Decision[edit]

I have decided to put the article on hold for a week. Overall, it's a good article, just needs a bit more work. buffbills7701 14:58, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

This article has passed. buffbills7701 01:21, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Corrections and explanation[edit]

Thanks Buffbills7701 for your review. I have made the changes you requested. I hope they have addressed your concerns. If not, let me know. The reason that "puffery" was linked to "Chamber of Commerce" in this article was because the term "Chamber of Commerce" was used in a derisive context. The intention was to say that the work was not scientific in nature, but promotional, presenting an exaggerated image of the economic geology. That is pretty much a spot-on definition of puffery. But, as you observed, that point was far from obvious. So the sentence has been reworded to better explain the situation. Gulbenk (talk) 01:06, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Name clarification[edit]

Shan't we add "(U.S. state)" clarification to the name? Or the country of Georgia has no geologic maps? --ᛒᚨᛊᛖ (ᛏᚨᛚᚲ) 14:30, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Content copied[edit]

The section ==The Geology of Georgia== was copied from Geology of Georgia (U.S. state) in the edit of 17:20, 14 October 2013 by user:Gulbenk with no attribution. See WP:Copying within Wikipedia. Vsmith (talk) 21:57, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Added link to this article at Geology of Georgia (U.S. state) with edit summary notation that material from that article was used in Geologic map of Georgia (U.S. state). Is there something else which might further clarify attribution? Gulbenk (talk) 21:25, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
I think that should cover it, thanks. It seems as virtually that entire article was involved and now the two articles should be merged. I'm thinking the mapping content should be moved to be a major section in the Geology of Georgia (U.S. state) article and this turned into a redirect. Vsmith (talk) 22:54, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure that the addition of information from Geologic map of Georgia (U.S. state) to Geology of Georgia (U.S. state), or the complete merger of the two articles, would produce a satisfactory result. The geology of Georgia is a useful and informative subsection of *this* article. But I don't think that someone seeking information primarily on the geology of Georgia would be interested in a protracted discussion of the history and personalities involved in the production of the geologic map, particularly if that information took up more than half the article, as it would. The "See also" section of Geology of Georgia (U.S. state) currently provides a link for those interested in such information. I greatly appreciate your efforts to improve this article, and to clarify sourcing information. I would be open to the idea of a larger, single, article... if that could be properly done. But I honestly view the two articles as serving separate purposes, and currently support keeping each one - separately. Gulbenk (talk) 22:12, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
