Winnetka is the home to noted New Zealand author Andrew Law.

Okay, I'm not certain this author is really all that noted, or noteworthy, as I failed to find any books written by him in the UCLA online library catalog, nor in the Wellington city library catalog. - Eric 18:13, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

That writer is unworthy of addition. Also is this a mexicant town? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:56, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

No such thing as "mexicant" as far as I can tell. If you meant "mexican" instead, well, it is not in Mexico, so no, it isn't a Mexican town. Demographics are listed, including Latinos and lots of other races too. Seriously, what are you getting at? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:31, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Winnetka, Los AngelesWinnetka, Los Angeles, California Please consider: To align with predominant city's district/town nomenclature of 3 names; & for Spanish placename/word multiple use clarity. Thanks--- User:Look2See1 21:12, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

Strong oppose/Request speedy closure User has offered no reasoning for move. The name of the city is Los Angeles, not Los Angeles, California; therefore the name of the article should be Chatsworth, Los Angeles, not Chatsworth, Los Angeles, California. Many neighborhoods in other cities, in and out of the United States, do not contain state names, including quite a few neighborhoods in Los Angeles now.

Why? Moves don't need participation to happen. If a guy makes a proposal and it's legit, the page gets moved even if nobody else comments. Maybe notify Los Angeles and WikiProject Los Angeles (which has few active members, many of which have already commented) of the ones that are going on right now, but no need for a move discussion on a page that isn't even being moved.
If that move is being used as a precedent then we should get wider input.   Will Beback  talk  23:13, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Unless there is a disambiguation problem, "neighhborhood, Los Angeles" is sufficient. Beyond My Ken (talk) 07:48, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
Neutral: While understanding a larger view now than when posting the 'movereq' above; I agree with User:Will Beback that a precedet setting decision for one of the world's largest city's deserves wider discussion and input. My posting the 'movereq' was due to lack of 'discussion width', leaving me unaware of changes (considered and done) even though very active with L.A. Districts' articles. Personally I do not find using the word 'notorious' and L.A. together by some 'change advocates' positive or a npov backup.
More transparency before further changes, with notification and 'auto-forwarding' of 'old 3 names' titles (in both article links and new searches) could avoid difficult startles. The Reseda, Los Angeles, California (OR Reseda, Los Angeles ?? eg: the 'crap shoot' problem for now...) has discussion on talk page of neighborhood vs. district vs. census-designated place (CDP). If the change is inevitable perhaps doing so in district name alphabetical order would take out random 'crap shoot' searching now (or explaining another system being used).

The history part is a bit off.[edit]

I'm not sure how they think Winnetka was never part of Canoga Park but it was when I lived there from 1962 to 1972. I lived at 20654 Lemay St and the rest of my address was Canoga Park, CA 91306. My phone number was 347-8196. I went to Fullfright Elementary School and John Sutter Jr. High. I never even heard of Winnetka the whole time I was growing up there. I do remember my parents reading in the paper that it was going to be subdivided. That was sometime shortly before my mother died there in 1972. My family moved away from there right after that. I remember because I have one of those memories like Marilu Henner. I remember most everything from my whole life. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:51, 31 January 2013 (UTC) Also I played at the Pierce College all the time because it was very close to my house and they had farm animals there.
