Boiling Springs[edit]

Thanks for your message. First of all, welcome to Wikipedia, and thanks for taking the time to find references and to leave me your message—I really appreciate it. There is a lot of information about editing at the Wikipedia tutorial, and I have left a few more links above if you want to know more.

As for your Boiling Springs question...I think the way you handled things was fine. I reverted your first edit because, since you didn't leave an edit summary, I wasn't sure what your reason for removing the information was. Now that you have explained at my talk page, we can discuss it a little more. But for the short term, adding references for what you can is good, and if there is information you doubt (for example, the claim about the depth of the cavern), the best thing to do before removing it is to add a [citation needed] tag right after it. (You can do this by adding the text {{fact}} after the sentence; that's what generates the "citation needed" tag.) Personally, I'm not sure about a source, but I grew up in Boiling Springs and I remember reading that stuff about the springs in a brochure somewhere or hearing it in science class or something like that...those are not reliable sources, of course, but they're enough to suggest that we probably shouldn't remove it or trust it just yet. Hopefully with some more searching, we can find a reference that either unequivocally confirms or denies it, and then we'll know better how to handle it.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work, rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 02:12, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, Rjanag. I will keep at it a while. I hope eventually to add an entry on the Cumberland Vally Traction Company with more information on the trolleys and the park.BotManPA (talk) 02:59, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
