Problem on date reference to state of Arizona
- (Imagine that since arizona wasn't a state until 1912 someone screwed up) -- [[User:22.214.171.124] 23:07, 27 October 2005
Editor User:Nyttend deleted a number of links as spam, but removed some that are genuinely useful:
- Jerome Arizona, the Town with the Billion Dollar View --description, history and references, at a (largely)
--a history article, at the regional museum (Sharlot Hall).
- The Jerome Times --the town newspaper
None of these strike me as spam. I propose restoring them. Pete Tillman 01:39, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
- Misunderstanding, I shouldn't have removed them, so I've restored them. My apologies. Nyttend 01:53, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
- No problem; thanks for putting them back. I'll probably retitle the Sharlot Hall article, since it's actuallly about (ims) the old Douglas mansion, that became a State Park.
- Sharlot Hall, incidentally, was Arizona's first State Historian, just after statehood. She was a person, not a building. Cheers, Pete Tillman 04:34, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Tourism and art
- Done, with general cleanup and some new info added. Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 06:38, 8 May 2008 (UTC), who had lunch in Jerome yesterday
I'm confused by the many variety of uses of the term "United Verde", and am wondering if someone can please clarify this either here or in the various articles that mention these. Varieties I've seen include:
- United Verde
- United Verde Mine
- United Verde mine (redirect to Jerome, Arizona#Mining; note missing section)
- United Verde Extension (redirect to Jerome, Arizona#United Verde Extension; note missing section)
- Yes, horribly confusing. Good catch. I forgot to fix the redirects after greatly expanding the Jerome article. I've now redirected them more sensibly, I hope. Finetooth (talk) 19:29, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
- UVX (probably simply acronym of United Verde Extension)
- This short list seems to have been created by someone in hopes that the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) sites related to the UVX would eventually have articles of their own. I added a couple of words to the lead sentence in hopes of making it a bit more clear. Finetooth (talk) 19:29, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
- The further confusion, which I hope the Geology section makes clear, is that the two mines were not two parts of the same mine or the same ore body even though their names seem to imply that they were. They were two fabulously rich but separate deposits. Thank you for pointing out these confusions. I hope I have cleared them up, but if you see anything else amiss or have further suggestions, we can certainly make further adjustments. Finetooth (talk) 19:29, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
Good article nomination
I am nominating this article for Good status on behalf of User:Finetooth, who did a fine expansion job. FT does not wish to guide the article through formal review processes. I had no part in conducting research for, or expanding, this article but I am happy to address concerns that may arise during the review process. Thanks. --Another Believer (Talk) 05:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
This line makes no sense: "Males had a median income of $23,750 versus $23,750 for females." If they're exactly the same it's not "versus" anything, and I can't find this on the linked census info page. Can anyone clarify? JamesG5 (talk) 19:05, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks for catching this. The stats were added by robots after the 2000 census and again after the 2010 census, then later modified by humans who probably thought that the two sets of similar robot stats included too much detail. The male/female claim that you noticed makes no sense to me either; it may be a typo. I simplified and modified the claims, citing the Census Bureau's American FactFinder tables for Jerome in 2014. To get at these stats about Jerome, key "Jerome town, Arizona" into the FactFinder search engine. That will take you to a page with a lot of other clickable options related to Jerome. The "Income" choice in the menu on the left side has the median income stat, and the "Selected Economic Characteristics" has the poverty stat. There are many more stats for Jerome; I'm not sure which, if any, are important enough to include in a general encyclopedia article. Finetooth (talk) 22:00, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
