Blodgett Peak[edit]


I've been working on cleaning up a set of articles that have been very poorly written, cited, and often inaccurate data from a particular user.

I just noticed that you worked on the article - and I want to make sure that I didn't revert anything that worked on that should be there. For instance, I have only see the use of direct elevation numbers, rather than a calculation.

I'll check your changes more thoroughly - and just wanted to give you a heads up.--CaroleHenson (talk) 06:51, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Timeline of Colorado history, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Broadmoor (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:56, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Fixed.  Buaidh  16:40, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Userbox request[edit]

At the bottom of Wikipedia:Userboxes, you're mentioned as a user who will make userboxes at a request. I'd like to get one with the following text: "This user comments at the drama boards to hopefully make them less of a drama board." or some variant of that text. Thanks. Tutelary (talk) 20:24, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

You may modify Template:User drama boards as you see fit. We need many more female Wikipedians like yourself. Yours aye,  Buaidh  16:03, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much! Tutelary (talk) 16:34, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Fair use images in templates[edit]

Hi Buaidh. In your work with templates, please take care to make sure that any image you add to a template is not one that is used under a claim of fair use (usually called "non-free" on Wikipedia). Non-free images are only permitted in article space - not in templates, on user pages, in categories, etc. --B (talk) 01:12, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the polite reminder. Yours aye,  Buaidh  02:11, 16 April 2015 (UTC)


I noticed that you work in Mexico on the Wikiproject Mountains. I need a bit of help if you can. I am actually working on an artist (I know nothing about mountains), but his bio says he lives on the side of a mountain in the Tepozteco Mountain Range near the village of Tepoztlán. When I looked for the mountains, it took me to an archeological site El Tepozteco, which references as a red link Sierra de Tepoztlan. I find nothing about a range of mountains under Tepoztlan, Tepozteco, Siera de Tepozteco or Sierra de Tepoztlan, on the Spanish Wikipedia either, but there is an article that talks about "the mountain" named Tepozteco.

Finding nothing on Wikipedia to clarify it, I went to the web. I find that there is a national park [1] which states that the park is in the Sierra del Ajusco. This site, [2] which talks about the town Tepoztlan says it is surrounded by a ridge, no name given *sigh*, among which is a sacred mountain Tepozteco. This book [3] says the valley the town is in lies in the basin between the Sierra del Ajusco and Sierra Madre del Sur. Going back to Wikipedia, Sierra del Ajusco says it is part of a chain called Sierra del Ajusco-Chichinauhtzin. Sierra Madre del Sur goes through Michoacan, Guerrero, and Oaxaca, so too far south for Morelos. Obviously, I am just finding all sorts of names, but none to clarify the name of the mountain range my guy lives in. All the Trip Advisor, Frommer's type references call it the Tepozteco Mountains, but I am still thinking that is the name of only one peak from the other sources I see. I tried Google maps search, but it does not name the mountains around the town. Is there some site you know of that could confirm the name of the mountain range? I don't want to put a red link in to the wrong name. Thanks SusunW (talk) 01:19, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

You can try the INEGI website. Yours aye,  Buaidh  15:26, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
