Trying to add Section[edit]

This is really strange. I am trying to add this section just above the "Political career" secton, but when I do, I encounter a problem--it deletes everything below it. Any explanations or suggestions?

Hayes' firsts missing[edit]

According to the Hayes Presidential Center and other websites:

  • Hayes was the first president to install a telephone or typewriter
  • Hayes was the first president to visit the West Coast while in office: He (along with General Sherman) toured California in 1880
  • Hayes was the first President to have an Easter Egg roll

Why isn't this in the article? pbp 04:39, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

We usually avoid this sort of trivia. --Coemgenus (talk) 02:18, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm not supposed to reveal this, but the un-written rule is that Wikipedia should be as boring as possible. Trivia above may over-excite some more uptight readers or editors.Roseohioresident (talk) 17:42, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

1845 Pic?[edit]

This photo is not of Rutherford B. Hayes, or at least not the Hayes that was the 19th President of the United States. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.58.48.139 (talk) 04:11, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
