George Mitterwald's nickname

Is the 'The Baron' and here is a source for that-

In the future if you're unsure of a baseball player's nickname, google search it. Baseball Almanac is also a very reliable source.

College Baseball Wikiproject

Is there anything specific that needs help? I signed up as a particpant but I am not sure what to work on. Hoggardvikes (talk) 20:38, 1 June 2010 (UTC)Hoggardvikes

When I joined, I focused on what I was interested in, namely, the New England Collegiate Baseball League. For you, that seems to be UNCW baseball. The Brooks Field page, the UNC Wilmington Seahawks baseball (which I took the liberty of starting), and other CAA baseball articles can all be expanded. Some things to do at the Seahawks baseball page would be completing the infobox (I wasn't sure on the start date and championships), expanding other sections (things like History, prominent alumni, coaches, past records, postseason appearance, and stadium are a few ideas), and finding references for this info. Look at the Clemson Tigers baseball, Ohio State Buckeyes baseball, and Stanford Cardinal baseball articles for some good examples. I'll keep tabs on your work on this article and try to help out, if this is what you decide to focus on.
If you'd rather work on something else, there's the Articles section where people post articles that they feel need work or should be created. Also, the WikiProject has a cleanup listing, a list of college baseball articles with Wiki-related problems. The work can be a little tedious, but it's an idea. Another possibility is browsing through the withing the scope of WikiProject college baseball. If you browse through some of these, something could easily catch your attention. Keep me posted on how things are going and don't hesitate to ask any questions here on my talk page. Thanks for joining WikiProject College Baseball! Kithira (talk) 23:40, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I couldn't figure out how to find your response (until now). Thanks for starting the UNCW Baseball page as well. Hoggardvikes (talk)

You are now a Reviewer

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:20, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikiprojects question

The purpose of a WikiProject is to allow a group of editors to manage a specific topic or family of topics within Wikipedia. Each Wikiprojects members define their scopes and most successful WikiProjects have a natural scope that can be simply stated and easily understood. Having one school located in the state would not normally be a reason to include a conference article into a project for the state since it does not fit the spirit of Wikiproject organization. The individual school should be included, but not the entire conference. For more information on Wikiprojects please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide.

BTW: Normally you should address questions to a specific editor on his/her talk page and not on the article talk page.

Happy editing. -- Absolon S. Kent (chat), 15:44, Thursday December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Looking at the WikiProject Maryland's stated scope, "The purpose of this project is to cover all articles related to the U.S. state of Maryland." I'm sorry if this is painfully simple and I am just not getting something, but when conference athletic games are regularly played in the state, then the conference is related to the state, satisfying the WikiProject's defined scope.

Requested move: Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns => Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns

Sorry to bother you, but could you state your reason for supporting this move on the talk page in the Survey section. I would copy and paste your text from the archived discussion, but I figured that would violate some wiki policy. I just reformatted the discussion, and hopefully we will get some more opinions before 7 days is up. I also changed your "I agree" comment to "Support" and bolded it for formatting consistency purposes. Hope that is ok. Feel free to leave any additional comments in the Discussion section. Thanks! AllisonFoley (talk) 06:47, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Sounds good, and thanks for reformatting my post on the discussion page. Kithira (talk) 11:55, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

College baseball

I’ve been thru this list and, from what I can see, all but one is a United States based league so the move is appropriate and relects the conent accurately. A couple have Canadian teams but even these have majority US teams. Also the article was originally placed in Category:College baseball in the United States. Why was this ? I suggest you remove the Canadian league and start an article titled something like List of collegiate baseball leagues outside the United States adding college leagues from Japan, South Korea etc. The world does not stop at the US border and there are college baseball leagues in other countries.

Reed Gym

Hello, While mapping out my bicycle trip to Crater Lake National Park, I found the marker for Reed Gym, located in the forest http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=42.864467,-122.428889&spn=0.3,0.3&t=m&lci=org.wikipedia.en&q=42.864467,-122.428889(Reed%20Gym)

Tracing the edit that added cords to the Reed Gym http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Reed_Gym&diff=prev&oldid=312425656 I found you. Since I dont know where Reed Gym is, but dont recall seeing it in the forest, I am asking you to consider correcting the cord as I have the idea you, being a fan of basketball, may know way faster than me searching for it.

Mahaney Diamond

Why did you change the seating capacity of Mahaney Diamond to 3,000? The source provided says a 500 seat bleacher area. Do you have another source to back-up your new claim?--TM 15:23, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

No worries. It is unfortunate when the sources are conflicting. Keep up the good work!--TM 17:12, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

quote vs quotation

I just wanted to let you know that quote is an acceptable synonym for quotation, not just as slang, and has been in use for a long time. Merriam Webster agrees. I'm not going to undo any of your changes, since they are interchangeable, but it seems like a lot of extra work to undertake, as I'm certain quote is the more common word choice, and you'll never be able to eliminate its usage as a noun from Wikipedia. Torchiest talk/edits 04:49, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Agree with Torchiest and reverted your change. "Quote" is the more usual term in this context Dominus Vobisdu (talk) 15:46, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Dictionaries are not prescriptive. Just because Merriam-Webster lists it as a word does not necessarily mean its usage is correct. Just as "cite" is a verb and "citation" is a noun, "quote" is a verb and "quotation" is a noun. Kithira (talk) 17:21, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
