Hudspeth County Courthouse[edit]

Thank you for your assessment of the article Hudspeth County Courthouse. I believed I had completed the article as best I could with the info I had available when I submitted it for assessment. Then I went to bed for the night before having an "oh, duh!" moment when I realized I didn't include describing in text the site's various historical designations with citations. I have since added a small paragraph updating that info since it is central to the article's scope. I don't know whether that would influence your assessment any further. Fortguy (talk) 03:52, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for creating the article! I assessed it as C-class, meaning *at least C-class*; really, it's probably a B. I'll reassess it. Good work!-Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 12:34, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Martin Gardner page[edit]

Hi Bryanrutherford - I am glad that someone finally got around to rating the Martin Gardner page. I noticed that you rated the page High-importance in WikiProject Skepticism. I certainly concur. I would argue that the page should also be rated High-importance in WikiProject Mathematics. The section Martin_Gardner#Influence cites a lot of supporting evidence for this assessment. I agree with all the other ratings. Thank you for your consistently professional work in WP.--Toploftical (talk) 16:39, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Actually, the Skepticism importance rating was there already! I'll look into Gardner's influence further. -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 17:36, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
