Link spam[edit]

The last link for the The Villages at Treasure island seem like link spam. I'm going to remove it if no one has any objections. --216.31.250.91 (talk) 02:07, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Origin of name[edit]

I just watched an extra segment on a Charlie Chan DVD, and one of the local history types interviewed said that the name Treasure Island comes from the belief that the dredge material that was taken from the harbor was believed to contain gold left over from the gold rush days.

  • Surely it does, but in insignificant amounts. 99.20.118.250 (talk) 04:53, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Muni, Trans, Ramp, whatever[edit]

Before the Transbay Terminal was demolished, this bus line was the only Muni bus line to use the Transbay Terminal ramps, similar to the east bay Transbay buses.

What a geeked-out sentence! It needs to be explained, or dropped, because a scientific estimate reveals 98.42% of wikipedia readers will not know what this means. cheers, Doceddi (talk) 10:14, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Area[edit]

The area of Treasure Island itself seems to be 535 acres (0.836 sq.mi.). But the area cited in the Infobox is "4 km2 (1.5 sq mi)". Something is awry. Twang (talk) 05:34, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Treasure Island (California) vs Treasure Island, San Francisco[edit]

although i neglected to so indicate in the summary when i was bold and made the move, Treasure Island is wholly in, and a part of the City and County of San Francisco. Thus, the article name should be Treasure Island, San Francisco, not Treasure Island (California). --emerson7 21:20, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Construction photo...[edit]

I just saw this fly by on the California Historical Society's Facebook page, and thought someone here might have the time to slot it into the page.

3DBuzz.com forum thread in references[edit]

Does a forum thread about this topic qualify as an encyclopedic source? I would think the SF Weekly article mentioned in the first post of the thread should be the source, not the thread itself. I'll remove it if there are no objections. ("Toxic Acres" - Am I Living in Presence of Harmful Nuclear Radiation?) pellea72 (talk) 06:10, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

  • I changed the reference from the forum post to the article itself. pellea72 (talk) 05:58, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
