Hi! I'll contact the admin who protected the page last and have him look at the revision. When I get the word that it's good, I'll unprotect the page and move the draft into the mainspace. WhisperToMe (talk) 04:20, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the prompt reply! I had nothing to do in anyway with why any articles leading to its salting. Thanks again.Americasroof (talk) 05:27, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Your edit back in 2009 shifted around the information and references so they no longer made sense. I've tried to fix it. Enigmamsg 02:33, 10 February 2011 (UTC)


Hi, I was just wandering around doing random image cleanup tagging and I found an old image you'd uploaded, File:Fire-island-map.svg. It appears that this image was converted to SVG by simply embedding a JPEG in an SVG wrapper, which isn't really a useful conversion. I'm guessing that the original image is File:Fire-island-map.jpg. Do you remember if that's actually what happened here? (I know it was over three years ago, I'm hoping your memory is better than mine would be :) Bryan Derksen (talk) 09:01, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, Byran. That was a while ago when I was a more loosey goosey or playing with formats. I suspect you are correct. Americasroof (talk) 12:56, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'll mark it for deletion then, to be on the safe side. Wouldn't want anyone to think the jpeg version was the redundant one. Bryan Derksen (talk) 00:04, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Arthur McArthur has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

My article was a redirect to disambig which was overwritten on June 15. I restored it to the redirect so it doesn't get lost in the deletion drama. Americasroof (talk) 00:39, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you!

Saratoga Battle Monument Photo

Hello, I'm writing a paper on the Saratoga Battle Monument. I've taken several images of it, but the one on your wiki site is better.Could I use it in a publication? If so I would like to credit you. Thanks Carolyn Strange — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:36, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Carolyn. It's nice of you to ask. The photo has creative commons license so you are entitled to use it provided you attribute it to me (americasroof on wikipedia). You could have done that without asking but it's nice that you.Americasroof (talk) 03:30, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

United States cities by crime rate

Is it possible that you could change the rate on the United States cities by crime rate page to crimes per 100,000 like it originally was before someone messed with it the previous year? It needs to be way more exact for the homicide counts, for instance, instead of going only into the tenths. --Criticalthinker (talk) 07:32, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Good catch. I think the 1,000 is actually a good ratio given that the whole collection which goes to 40,000 would make the 100,000 a bit cumbersome. I compromised by rounding to five decimals.14:34, 21 September 2011 (UTC)~
Wouldn't it actually make sense for the categories including cities over 100,000 we keep it consistent with how the FBI standareds, which is per 100,000? The decimals seem cumbersome and look like clutter, IMO. And, even below 100,000 it makes sense to do it per 10,000. I'm just not sure how per 1,000 on any of the categories makes sense when that's now how they are ever reported in the media nor to the standards of the reporting agencies. --Criticalthinker (talk) 12:16, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
If I go to 100,000 how many decimals should it go? Thanks.13:15, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
I'd say that it'd probably be best to go no further than the hundredth's place. If I remember correctly, you might only should go to the tenths. --Criticalthinker (talk) 04:20, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Mark Block

Yeah, I couldn't find anything on his birth year. Or reports from 1974 he his election. I see high school graduation year has switched from 1972 to 1971. His linked in now says 1971 [1] but his facebook said 1972.[2].--Milowenthasspoken 16:50, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the starting the article. The age thing is a bit strange. Most people graduate about when they were 18. There's some questions arising between 1971/72 and 1974. Thanks again.Americasroof (talk) 20:27, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Don Rossi

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Don Rossi, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Dan Rossi. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 12:28, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
