Etymology[edit]

What is the origin of that name? Sounds Native American to me, but why anyone would call some place "Two Medicine" is beyond my imagination and seems to have a nice lil story attached. Dysmorodrepanis 17:01, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

It's a formation, so how about something on the GEOLOGY?[edit]

Lots of cutesy drawings of dinosaurs, but not enough on the geology. Adding a geologic cross section and/or geologic map would make this a much better article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.208.69.46 (talk) 05:31, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Sp. "Aproximate paleocoordinates" in box[edit]

This is one of two instances that I have found in WP. The phrase appears in the box "Aproximate paleocoordinates" (= APPROXIMATE ....) but there is no text in the edit that enables it to be changed. Can you direct this to someone that has the know how.66.74.176.59 (talk) 17:49, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

In the "rock unit" infobox, there is a parameter "paleocoordinates," which controls the paleocoordinates in the infobox. Primefac (talk) 18:50, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
This is fine and dandy but you might as well be speaking Martian to me as I know absolutely nothing about that and do not know where to find it if I did.66.74.176.59 (talk) 18:54, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
If you click on "edit" at the top of the page, at the top of the editing area that appears you will see a line that says "{{Infobox rockunit". That marks the start of the infobox, which appears at the top right hand corner of the article. Below that heading, you will see a number of entries for the particular entries in that box, starting with "| name = Two Medicine Formation", then "image = Two Medicine.jpg", and so on. Somewhere down the list you will see a line beginning "| paleocoordinates = ". The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:03, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
