I see your note above about missing someone...I miss Hal. It just doesn't seem the same without him around the ACW articles. Check your inbox.

Got your communication. Thanks. Yeah I miss Hal too, but he's doing work he loves. Funny how he parlayed his love of doing maps into yet another career. So proud of that guy. MONGO decided that his presence was a net negative in interactions; when he tried to express his opinion his entire editing history kept biting him in the ass. A superior pagespace editor who was a good early admin but let his feelings get in the way sometimes. I'll be mourning missing MONGO for a while. Maybe MONGO should be writing Rocky Mountain travelogues... Anyway, thanks for the version you provided. After study I may end up asking an OTRS admin for the history, because it's hard to recall exactly what I was thinking back then without edit summaries. Might even work with RCLC to build up that pagespace. We disagree about so much we might make a good tag team. The page has been languishing long enough. BusterD (talk) 22:35, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Your defense of me is appreciated. MONGO 01:52, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Very nice of you old friend! I went back through my edit history to figure out how you and I first met. It was about ED. It wasn't until after I knew you a while I saw your work on the 9/11 stuff. Kinda makes sense. Like I told the Hunter above, MONGO might consider a side career in writing western territory travelogues. You love this material, know all the sources, have a disciplined style and possess the background. If you can't write for us, maybe you should write for yourself. Let me know; I'd be the first to buy your work. If you decide to come back, know you have a monthly beer delivery. BusterD (talk) 02:19, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

(random drive-by) Actually, I quite often feel that many people are better off writing for themselves than they are here. And before anyone thinks that's a negative comment, I personally enjoy original research and composition (historical journal writing) far more than I do rehashing it here. There is much to be said for original knowledge creation...without it encyclopedias wouldn't have much to draw from. Intothatdarkness 21:45, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Template: American Civil War[edit]

What specifically on the Talk page are you referring to? deisenbe (talk) 14:02, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for engaging. If you follow the link I provided, you'll see an established usage guideline which explains how we've prevented the tool from getting unwieldy for many years. BusterD (talk) 14:13, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

P.S. Why is there a separate template on Events Leading to the U.S. Civil War? It seems to duplicate this one, though in more detail, and the list in Timeline of Events. deisenbe (talk) 14:08, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Both timelines have existed since the inception of this tool in 2006 or so. You'd have to visit the page histories and talk pages of those articles to answer your question. BusterD (talk) 14:16, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
