DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 13 April, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Ligonier Valley Railroad, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Congratulations on your first Did You Know article! --Royalbroil 05:24, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Incorporation dates[edit]

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has some pretty good dates here. Dincher (talk) 01:17, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

I agree, many of the dates are pretty sketchy. When it comes to conflicting dates, I always defer to the local website or local history information. I would think that they have the best info. I too have used the PHMC source as a primary reference. It can be frustrating when it comes to establishing just exactly when a place was settled, especially townships. Sometimes I think that we should just go with the incorporation dates and forget the settlement dates for the townships. I think it is safe to go with the first cabin built on what became a borough or city, especially if that particular place remained ihabited since. I agree. Wiki can be very addicting. I started out with the intention of just working on Lycoming County and now look at what I've done. Best of luck with adding the histories. Have Fun! Dincher (talk) 23:20, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

I notice you've been adding pics for the southwestern PA places. Do you have any state park pics? Dincher (talk) 02:50, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

No problem. Have a good one. Dincher (talk) 19:42, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Re:File:Sabra Wheless Ballinger Stoddart.jpg[edit]

Hi Canadian2006. I see what you mean; the file should not have been tagged with a {{nsd}} tag. I can, however, still tag it with a {{Di-no permission}} tag. But I believe what you're saying so I won't tag it now. Basically, the file is currently missing Evidence of Permission (See WP:PERMISSIONS). Please follow the instructions available at {{Di-no permission-notice}} and WP:PERMISSIONS and act as if there was a {{Di-no permission}} deletion tag placed on File:Sabra Wheless Ballinger Stoddart.jpg. Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or are in need of assistance. Regards, FASTILY (TALK) 05:34, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Biggar photographs[edit]

You have recently uploaded photographs to wikimedia commons in regards to Biggar, Saskatchewan. Would you give permissions to upload them also to the Biggar Encyclopaedia? SriMesh | talk 02:06, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Georgian Terrace[edit]

Thank you. I left a lengthy note under your message on my talk page (I can't remember if you'll get it automatically or if I have to add a talkback or whatknot. Carsonmc (talk) 08:42, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Too, I saw you referenced Robert Craig. Great guy. Had the pleasure to talk with him about a building myself and others are trying to save in Atl. The Industrial Life and Health Insurance Company Bldg. Carsonmc (talk) 09:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Georgian Terrace Hotel Page[edit]

When I go to Wiki's main page and type Georgian Terrace Hotel in, it doesn't go directly to the page, but then says there's a page named that with a redirect? Do you know why this is the case? Carsonmc (talk) 00:36, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

I tried to replicate the problem you describe, but it works fine for me. I can't explain it.Canadian2006 (talk) 04:50, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't typing in the full name... in Atl., we just say the Georgian Terrace and leave off the word hotel.Carsonmc (talk) 06:46, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Added architectural detail and history to the page. Let me know if you see something screwy. My eyes are shot, I've been working on this for over five hours - that is the research and writing. I know that the Fox Theatre district photos would be good to have on their own page, but since one doesn't exist, I thought I'd attach them here...let me know what you think. Cheers.Carsonmc (talk) 06:48, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Employment equity (Canada)[edit]

Canadian2006, I added information to the article Employment equity but you undid it. I disagree with your claim that it broke WP:NPOV, I believe that it actually breaks WP:NPOV with the current version. I am only trying to clarify things, according to the guidelines (Canadian Gov.) white Arabs, white Western Asians (including Israelis) and white Latin Americans are not classified as minority. I believe that the following statements are contradictory and need correction or clarification:

For example, people who are Arabs or Latin Americans may consider themselves to be white, yet the federal government treats Arabs and Latin Americans as members of the visible minority category. This is wrong, if the source confirms it, the source is invalid, it is not agreeing with the main source, the Canadian Government.

However, starting in the Canada 2006 Census, respondents were not classified as visible minorities if they identified themselves as having both a white ancestry (for example, "French") in addition to ancestry in a visible minority group.

I hope we can reach a consensus, and we can improve this article together. After all this is the main principle of this encyclopedia. I hope I can count on your help to assist me in this. Best regards. Paulista01 05:24, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Canadian2006,

First, I would like to thank you for your detailed response. I agree with most things you said, the Canadian government really make things very confusing by adopting these unusual standards, especially since Latin Americans and West Asians are not ethnical groups but are rather related to geographical locations. It is quite strange since in Latin America a few countries have a higher percentage of Caucasians (European Caucasians) than Canada, such as Argentina and Uruguay.

The issue to me is that I find the article a little confusing. I believe that if we give a little bit more explanation and details we may clarify things to the average visitor.

According to the website you sent me, it says, the law:

Legislative Definition - In the 1995 Act, "members of visible minorities" means persons, other than Aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour.

Then it has a section titled Operational definition, this section points to the definitions of the 2006 census. For instance that people that check Arab and Caucasian, or Latin American and Caucasian are not visible minority, since if it did, it would contradict or break the law. Now, imagine the following situation, a person comes here to find if they should check visible minority on their job application, by reading the article one would be even more confused. The article takes a sociological approach to the subject; I believe that most people are interested in the hard facts and what the law actually says. I believe that the best solution here is to quote the government directly. When I first read the article I was very confused, since Wikipedia is one of the major sources of information today, we would help a lot of people if we explained things a little better.

Architecture infoboxes[edit]

Good eye on the Template:Infobox architectural practice ... I didn't even know of its existence. I think I'd used the Template:Infobox architect just because I saw it used in the article on Archibald and Schofield. Now that I know better, I will edit that article to use the proper infobox.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited New Morals for Old, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Robert Young (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.

Distance between communities[edit]

Hi, just saw some of your edits on my Watchlist. I encourage you to use kilometres between communities rather than time. Usage of time is discouraged as there are too many variables that affect travel time between communities at it is not the truest measure. As you continue, please use kilometres instead.

Johnston Building (Charlotte, North Carolina)[edit]

You said you found a site that claimed the Johnston Building was called Midtown Plaza. I need to sign in to the email address I used and check for a response from that site, but the site can't be regarded as reliable if The Charlotte Observer and the Charlotte Business Journal have not only never used the name for the Johnston Building, but at least the Observer has used the name for another building. I told the writer of the article perhaps the mistake that has been on Wikipedia for five years led her to believe the name was used.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 18:24, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

The writer apologized for her mistake and corrected her article. I'm still waiting on one of the others you told me about. I thought it was just one but then I went back and checked.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:24, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
