This Section is my User page of (This section remains on top of talk page)[edit]

  • Sending me messages/replies
  • Where to replyWhen adding or replying, please stay within your section and reply at the bottom of the applicable section that has your user name or the topic your interested in. If you have a new topic or your user name is not listed, then see next sentence.
  • If your user name or topic is not listed in a sectionIf your user name or topic does not have a section, then please create a new section at the Bottom of this page, with your signature.
  • Where to find replies by me. Replies by me will be at the end of the section thats applicable to the user and topic. If you cant find my reply, check the bottom of any section that has your user name in the title of the section. I will use this heading "Reply to x", where x is your user name. You can use cntrl F and jump to this heading.
  • If another user wants to reply or comment in a section with user's name. If a user wants to reply in a section that does not have there user name already assigned, then its ok to reply in that section, but please stay on that topic. If not on the topic then, please reply as mentioned above under "If your user name or topic is not listed in a section".
  • My Response/Reply Turnaround Times I have a somewhat of a busy life and cannot always know when i will respond by. If there is comments or edits or any other activity, where a response from me is expected or needed, then the following.
  • 3 to 7 day return If there is active activity by me and there is nothing unusual or demanding in my life.
  • 30-60 day return I think on average it can be within a 30-60 day period, on average if there is nothing unusual in my life.
  • More then 60 day return. If there has been more then 60 days with no activity, then this would imply: that I am still interested in replying and possibly have a response or rebuttel to any issue. Also, Im not ignoring any activity; instead, that there is to much on my plate in life. I would consider this my dormat phase.
  • If other's have a turnaround preference If you have a preference on how and when you want responses replied to, feel free to let me know. Please let me know your turnaround time as well.
  • This section replaces my user page Re My user page at . Since i dont know how to activate my user page, I will just simply use this section as my user page and my home page for Wikipedia affairs.
  • About myself
-Male 40's Portland oregon.
-I like most facts/figures especially geographical and political info.
-I have traveled and am knowledgeable: Oregon, Washington state, California, Nevada, and Southern British Columbia, and Hawaii. Also some experience in Germany and Holland
-If someone is interested in more info then feel free to ask.
  • IP account instead of user account I prefer to temporarily use this IP account at this time, and not establish a Wikipedia account. I want to just try out the Wikipedia system. I dont have alot of time to be a frequent editor at this time. I am a bit overwhelmed at having alot of accounts on the internet, (not wikipedia) at this time. Currently I just want to be a Casual Editor, on a trial basis and see how it goes.
  • This Talk Page and Section order (oldest-newest) Except for this section, I was told that Wikipedia rules require oldest to newest order of posting. So except for this section, This page goes from oldest section to newest section, as far as new topics. If its the same topic or individual discussion with a particular user, then the oldest to newest stays within the same section.
  • Edit Reverts.Wait time for Response by others If any activity I do is disputed, I will try to make an attempt to resolve the dispute with a note on there talk page. If I have not have heard by the other party within a week, then I can assume there's implied consent to my issue, and I am allowed to do a edit revert or any other kind of modification. I will wait longer if the other persons specify there return time schedule (if more then 30 days then i will see what i can do). If this violates policy then see next sentence.
  • Advice/Instructions by Others If anything i do violates any Wikipedia rules/policy, then please let me know and tell me where (page,paragraph, sentence) it says this. How I understand it, that Wikipedia rules are only on protected pages (pages that's not editable), if this is not correct please tell me and where this rule is. I need to know a way to distinguish between actual authorized wikipedia policy and authority, vs user's that overstep there bounds. Its very time consuming to search policy/rules to verify claims to me, so for me to take your advice on policy/rules seriously please tell me the exact location of where the policy/rule is.
  • My use of this symbol "§" Since there are some user's that claim that if i add information in a section heading, that this alters or edits other users comments. I added a extra heading above the original section heading, and when i use this symbol, then i know this heading refers to the next heading, so I can quickly see this in the content list on top of my user page.
  • To Others that monitor activity on my pages Its helpful for me to know the following, please tell me what you prefer.
-your identity (just enough info for contact info or what you prefer, or only what i am allowed to ask under Wikipedia rules)
-preferred method of communication
-average checking frequency
-your average turnaround time to replies or actions on my page.
Please mention here:
-User talk:Imzadi1979 frequency unknown

Malheur county time zone listing and Time in Oregon User:Esprqii 6/25/12[edit]

You might want to make a prose edit about this in the Time in Oregon article. Be sure to provide a citation to a reliable source. In addition to the sourced information, a photograph of the sign would be an interesting addition to that article. Good luck and happy editing. --Esprqii (talk) 17:02, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Writing a USRD article[edit]

Hello, I've noticed that you have taken an interest in editing road articles. I would like to explain how to write a decent road article that can pass for B-class. First, you have an infobox using {{infobox road}} that shows the route, its mileage, establishment date, termini, and junctions. Then you have a lead section which provides an overall summary of the article. The first section of the article is the route description, which describes the physical surroundings of the route along with what roads it intersects and what cities it passes through. The route description should be sourced to an official map and/or route log along with an online mapping service such as Google Maps to show the physical surroundings. The second section is the history, which describes how the route evolved over the years such as when it was created, when it was built, any extensions/truncations/reroutings. The history should be sourced to reliable sources such as old maps or newspaper articles. The last sections is a major intersections table which lists all the major intersections with other numbered roads along the route. You can use {{jctint}} to create the table. If a route is entirely a freeway, it is called an exit list and lists all exits along the freeway. Dough4872 04:36, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

When i get a chance, I was going to put on my user talk page at the top: My goal,intentions, and interest; as far as editing. Briefly I'm not sure if I have the time to create pages but some day I might. But currently, I was interested in just imputing info on current pages, and dont really have a preference on how its layed out except i would like most items in a table format ordered by geography (Mile post's etc), or when if applicable. Thanks for the tip. (talk) 13:53, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Articles that are a part of WP:USRD should follow the standards set forth at WP:USRD/STDS. Dough4872 01:50, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Malheur County time zones yet again - Haruo this time[edit]

You don't need to edit your talk page, just let people talk on it! Anyhow, I responded to your comment at Talk:Malheur_County,_Oregon#Mountain_Time_Zone. --Haruo (talk) 17:43, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Your question on "eo"[edit]

I saw your question at Help:Editing/feedback#jumptocomment. See Help:Interwiki linking and List of Wikipedias. A square-bracketed code beginning "eo:" is a link to a page at the Esperanto Wikipedia. -- John of Reading (talk) 18:14, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

(Afterthought) You'll get a faster response to questions like this one by posting at Wikipedia:Help desk. Few editors are watching the "feedback" pages, and, as you have seen, legitimate questions like yours are mixed up with a large number of test edits and such like. -- John of Reading (talk) 18:40, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your tip. When i was on that page, I wanted to do 2 things: 1)find the meaning of "eo" and 2)suggest a glossary of edit codes can be available (on the page or linked) on the edit help page. Just letting you know what i was doing. Im still new to the talk page process so if you have any feedback, feel free to let me know. thanks (talk) 04:11, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
That would be too much for one page, I think. The glossary of edit codes is not part of Help:Editing itself, but the "Wiki markup" section on that page points to Help:Wiki markup. That page covers most of the editing codes. -- John of Reading (talk) 06:06, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Still waiting on your detailed comments[edit]

We're still waiting on your detailed comments as to why exact mileposts for various political boundaries should be added to highway articles. Please reply, as several of us are waiting. Imzadi 1979  02:07, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
