Disambiguation link notification for September 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Flatbush. 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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:30, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Greenwood, Mississippi[edit]

On the Greenwood, Mississippi article, you added here that John Williams "arrived by flatboat". The citation at the end of the sentence was for page 7 of this book. I wasn't able to find any mention of a flatboat. Where did you get this information? Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:13, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Anne Webster's guidebook on Miss. genealogy here has a reference to my source on John Williams. Hamilton says on page 41 "The first settlement at G'wood was made by a flat-boat man named Williams, who built a shanty on the bank and for a time exposed his wares for sale. Richard McConnell was among the first merchants and he had interests at Carrollton...In a few years Dr. McLean, Allen McCaskill et al bought lands and their success influence others to join them in subduing the forests". Here are three map references for the road connection to Carrollton:

I have a special interest in flatboats as many Miss. settlers came via flatboat. I spent my childhood near Greenville at Leland. See my flatboat bibliography I researched at WorldCat here.Church of the Rain (talk) 04:11, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

I've just reverted a bunch of your edits. I'm not sure why you are adding barely referenced text, or photos that have little to do with articles, but it's really messing up a lot of articles. Please stop. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:52, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

I would love to talk about your objections on the article's talk page and we can discuss the sources merits or my reasons for adding material. Church of the Rain (talk) 19:21, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Jesus[edit]

Hi! I want to let you know that I reverted your recent edit to "Jesus" since the citation needed tag rather contradicted the Featured Article icon and status of the article. Feel free to put those appreciable good info of yours back after you provide the necessary source. (I'm afraid my edit summary said all this in a far harsher language than I really meant, I sorry, sorry for that) Cheers, and Happy Editing!Gonzales John (talk) 19:19, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
