H. L. Hunley (thanks)[edit]

Thank you muchly for adding the NRHP tag back on the talk page! I'm on the home stretch of assessing these types of articles, and I'd like to not miss any. It's funny, b/c when I add the tag for the WP:NRHP project, I try adding as many other appropriate tags as possible, just to be nice. I have yet to see more than 5 or 6 tags on a page. I don't think that's cluttered, especially if there's a nice picture with each tag. Go figure...
If you're interested (and sounds like you might be already), why not take a look at our little WikiProject. Happy New Year! --Ebyabe 20:27, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
You're welcome! The NRHP is one of the things I'm interested in. Einbierbitte 20:07, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Are you sure? I'm fairly confident that it's a national historical landmark. ---J.S (T/C/WRE) 21:50, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Monte Ne[edit]

Hello, I'm needing some info or support for an article about a place listed on the National Register of Historic Places that I've been working on. It's a place called Monte Ne which was a health resort of sorts run by an eccentric bimetallisms named William Coin Harvey in the early twentieth century. I've put a lot of time into the article and now I'm trying to get it featured, so if you wouldn't mind looking it over and giving me some criticism or support I would really appreciate. Also I've asked a few other users for there help and placed this exact same message on their discussion page. This was just so I wouldn't have to type it again, I'm not trying to spam your talk page. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a message or email me. Thanks so much! --The_stuart 21:44, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the NRHP list updates[edit]

That is, adding the newer listings. I'd meant to add the ones for Florida, but missed the ones you added, so danke for that too. Yours truly, the All-Seeing NRHP Eye. :) -Ebyabe 00:33, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

I did the Illinois and separate Cook County, Illinois lists, only thing is there were a bunch of lock and dam historic districts (added March of this year I think, seems like the MPS was delayed for awhile and just got pushed through) that I didn't add yet. There may also be a period where some Cook County listings were added that I didn't get to from 2005 and 2006, I intend to go back over them at some point. IvoShandor 21:13, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
Roger that. Thanks for adding those. Your work, as always, is appreciated by the community.

Updates to Oregon NRHP lists[edit]

Thanks for updating the Oregon lists! Just so you know, I have a commented out note on the top of the Oregon pages that says through which date the pages are up-to-date. Since I'm forgetful and do some of the updating, it saves time going back through the NRHP's weekly lists. If you do any updating in the future, if you don't mind, could you change the date? Thanks for considering it! Katr67 05:03, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Cool, thanks a lot! Katr67 16:57, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

What's your info source for NRHP updates?[edit]

I'm befuddled about NRHP lists. You have added some that I can't find on either the official database at http://www.cr.nps.gov/nr/ or the more extensive unofficial list at http://www.nationalregisterofhistoricplaces.com/ . Do you have a comprehensive authoritative source? --orlady 23:41, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

For others that may be curious, the National Park Service has a Weekly Update http://www.cr.nps.gov/nr/nrlist.htm which it publishes every Friday with new listings, removals, additional information, DOEs, NHL designations, etc. Cheers! Einbierbitte 15:45, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! --orlady 15:52, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Lists of registered places and Boundary changes, ammendments, etc[edit]

Do you think its necessary to list the boundary changes as individual items in the lists of historic places? I saw you changing the links to point to the main articles but do you think its even worthwhile to keep those links? pw 23:30, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Nrhp WikiProject tags on stubs[edit]

Sorry I left those tags off on the talk pages on the first set of articles I created, they should now be included when an article is created. :( pw 19:53, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

NRHP infobox additions for NHLs[edit]

Hi Cerveza-por-favor -- I was happy to notice you recently added NRHP infoboxes for several of the NHLs in Alabama that were lacking them, including Sloss Furnaces. As you may have noticed I have been working my way through that list. I've been adding links to NHL summaries, to NRHP Inventory-Nomination PDF documents or NHL Nomination documents, and to accompanying photosets, which is quite tedious. Your taking care of the NRHP infoboxes cut my job on those, and I appreciate it. I have come across very few NRHP infoboxes that have NHL dates included in them before I get to them, and appreciate that you are adding those.

I am hopeful that you are going on and adding missing infoboxes in other state lists of NHLs, too.

By the way, when I add the NRHP infobox for a site that is a NHL, I use the Elkman infobox generator. I like the reference it generates, but I move the reference's point of attachment from the reference number field to the NRHP listing date field. That way, when I also add a reference to the NHL summary for the site, for the NHL designation date field, then each of the two date fields is specifically supported. If you care to add either or both of those references, that would help too. But I am glad for any of this to be done, and if you just care to do the infobox that is more than alright with me. Keep up the good work! doncram 06:32, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Peer review on List of National Historic Landmarks in New York[edit]

Hi Einbierbitte -- Your input is invited.  :) I've gone ahead and asked for peer review on the List of National Historic Landmarks in New York list, including the List of National Historic Landmarks in New York City (hopefully to be considered by the peer reviewers as well). Open at Wikipedia:Peer review#List of National Historic Landmarks in New York. doncram (talk) 23:30, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your helpful edits (last week) to the Elihu Root House article I worked on. I'm new at this, so appreciate the chance to learn from other people's edits. Lvklock (talk) 19:59, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Holz Farm[edit]

Hi! In the edit [1] you added Holz Farmstead to the List of Registered Historic Places in Minnesota, but I can't find any documentation to support its inclusion. Do you know where you found it. Thanks.--Appraiser (talk) 22:24, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

First Church of Christ, Scientist (Mason City, Iowa)[edit]

Hi, Thanks for correcting the errors in the infobox. I've just recently found Elkman's NRHP infobox generator, so I don't have to do clipping and pasting anymore, which sometimes didn't quite get finished like on this one. Best wishes. clariosophic (talk) 22:06, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Re:USS Missouri (BB-63)[edit]

You may wish to look at USS New Jersey (BB-62), if I remember correctly that batleship is also on the NRHP list. TomStar81 (Talk) 22:28, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Photo request[edit]

Why did you readd the photo request for the Fort Crawford article? I removed it because there already are 2 photos. Please explain. Royalbroil 05:10, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Manis Mastodon Site[edit]

Hey there, so, before I semi-retired from Wikipedia, I was working on writing this article. I see you did it just a bit later. The version I have is a bit more complete, though could probably use a little copyedit, I haven't really looked at it. Anyway, it's in my sandbox if you wanna check it out and use it for the current article. cheers, Murderbike (talk) 20:02, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Cool. I'm not really doing much around here these days, trying to spend more time in real life. But, if I have some time, I'll try to wrap up my version and swap it in. cheers, Murderbike (talk) 07:08, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
I went ahead and found a few minutes to finish up the version of this article i was working on. i worked in a little bit of your version. feel free to let me know if i flubbed anything up. cheers! Murderbike (talk) 23:17, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Awesome! I'm glad I can finally stop worrying about it just sitting in my sandbox doing nobody any good! Murderbike (talk) 18:49, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Fourth of July, or bust, Thanks![edit]

NHLsByFourthOfJulyOrBustBARNSTAR.JPG The Fourth of July, or bust, Barnstar
I award you this Barnstar for your solid, witty, creative, supportive, learned, timely, cheerful, eloquent, and/or otherwise generally great contributions on U. S. National Historic Landmarks' articles. Yippee o yay, we pretty much met our goal of a well-started article for each of 2,442 NHLs by today!

Thanks, and have a great Fourth of July! -- Doncram, 4 July 2008

Thanks for developing various NHLs on List of NHLs in MA during the June 11-July 4 drive! And, thanks for what you've done previously on so many NHL articles! doncram (talk) 17:48, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Category added[edit]

Hi. In this edit[2] you added the NHL category. But this property is not an NHL. Do you remember why you added it, and are there perhaps others that were errorneously added? Thanks.--Appraiser (talk) 17:14, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Thomas Carr Farmstead Site (Keeler Site RI-707)[edit]

Hi. Could you please explain why you renamed this article. I see from the [only reference on the page that it is called Carr, Thomas, Farmstead Site (Keeler Site RI-707). Best regards, --PeaceNT (talk) 04:06, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your explanation. :) Just please that you shouldn't perform a copy&paste move because it destroys the article history and causes copyright problem (violation of GFDL). I've done a history merge for the page in question; In the future, please use the "move" button at the top of the article. :) It is quick and easy, and the copyright bot won't trouble you again! You may find more information at Help:Move. Have a nice August! --PeaceNT (talk) 02:56, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the kind words on my talk page, but I can't take too much credit for the idea. I modeled it on the work that User:doncram and others did on the New York page. Unfortunately, there are some discrepancies between the counts in my table and the number of sites in some of the California county/city NRHP lists. My next task is to reconcile these discrepancies. --sanfranman59 (talk) 21:41, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Milwaukee Road Depot list[edit]

For the record, I created a list of Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway Passenger Depots myself. Perhaps they should be combined. ----DanTD (talk) 16:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

That's perfectly understandable, I don't object to the kind of merger you're describing. However, since both descriptions and more are used, I think the more formal name(s) should be added as well. ----DanTD (talk) 01:34, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
Great. Just use mine as an aka name, add any other aka names, hidden chapters, etc., and they're all yours. ----DanTD (talk) 17:32, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

...for this information. Where'd you find it? Usually it's hard to miss but for once I couldn't find it (there are very few Google hits on this one). Daniel Case (talk) 06:57, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Ashley Bryan[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Ashley Bryan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. §hawnhath 02:15, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

NRHP Nevada[edit]

No problem with you updating these. I found if extremely difficult to find material when I was working on these. I'm not a history buff or expert, I just figured that this would be a series of articles that would meet notability and I could get something for all of them. I never realized how hard the task would be. I did finish the ones in Clark County and have started looking at the ones in the other Nevada counties which really are missing too many. Keep up the good work. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:50, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Another picture, please?[edit]

Just a request, would you add another picture to National Register of Historic Places listings in Utah to balance out the columns? Surely there's some other good picture, and I daresay you're able to determine a good candidate :-) Nyttend (talk) 23:27, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

NRHP banner tags for list-articles, etc[edit]

Noticed you tagging a few list-articles, which is great. I wonder if you could look at draft Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/Botrequest2? I've been developing that request to get a bot to do more banner tagging, but have no one to talk to about it. :) doncram (talk) 22:15, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I think the wording of the request part is okay, but I am unsure about which categories to include in the Part 2 request based on categories. Have some categories identified as not to be included (because contain some non-NRHP items, such as "National Monuments in Alaska"). For other categories I have just set aside, noting question mark for whether to include in bot request or not. Should all articles in a custom category set up for a historic district be included? Maybe if all the articles in the category are articles for contributing properties. What if the category has articles about non-contributing properties? Should i just exclude all these question mark ones from the bot request? doncram (talk) 22:33, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for sympathizing, yes there are a lot of categories! I created none of them, am not familiar with them. I guess, yes, i could just go with the obvious yes-to-inclue ones, and exclude the ones so far labelled "but not" or "what about". Hmm, actually, now i see i could go back and term most of those ones for Florida in the obviously yes category. I could just exclude any of those individual historic district ones though, without further reviewing them. doncram (talk) 22:58, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

MPSs[edit]

You seem to be more interested in multiple property submissions than I am; have you seen WP:MPS? Nyttend (talk) 19:56, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

HDs nationwide[edit]

What do you think of filing a bot request to help with Category:Historic districts in the United States? I'm thinking of asking for a bot to add the category itself to all articles with "hd" or "nhld" in the "type" line of the infobox, as long as those articles weren't already in a state-level category. Once this was complete, we'd be able to remove the category from the table without running the risk of missing any, and an edit to add the state-level category to each site could easily include removing the national category. It should be easy: far easier than trying to keep track of which states or letters had been sorted into state-level categories. Nyttend (talk) 19:02, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

MPS form, please?[edit]

Would you be able to find the MPS form for the Cross-Tipped Churches of Ohio TR? Properties in the TR were listed in 1979, if that helps at all; I've never quite figured out the arrangement of the MPS forms. Nyttend (talk) 02:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the resource; I hope to be visiting the area soon. Since you seem to understand it better than I do — why is it that there are several groups of forms for each state? Is there some reason that there are forms from AK to WY, then more forms for AK to WY, then more, etc.? Nyttend (talk)

mps stuff[edit]

Hey, I've been happy to find the wp:MPS page to be a really helpful resource; i've used it to look up MPS/TR documents for a bunch of places recently. Thanks for plugging along developing it! I wonder about making a final push to get titles for all of them, before or after making some announcement of its availability at wt:NRHP and describing it in the resources for editors at the main NRHP wikiproject page. Would you like to make such an announcement? I'd be happy to help finish it up, have been contributing occasionally. doncram (talk) 22:54, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Okay. Interesting idea to make it into a mainspace list. I briefly thot we could do articles about any MPS, but quickly reconsidered and don't think we can, on basis that each is really just a one-time study. Sometimes the topic of an MPS is a wikipedia notable topic, but usually the MPS documents are just sources like any other, and we usually don't consider other books and studies and news articles as wikipedia notable on their own. But, about what MPS and TR studies are, there could be some coverage about them as a group, or the NPS's policy/preference to use them in identifying what is NRHP-notable. Perhaps a list of these studies could be presented as a split out from the National Register of Historic Places article.
If you would like them numbered, then in what order? In their own number order, or alphabetical. The dates of many are unclear and i haven't myself paid that much attention, sometimes using a date stamp and sometimes using a preparation date. Date probably similar but not same as their number order. Or if by state, what about the ones that span states (could use duplicated rows then, though). I'll help number it in its current order though, and help renumber if it gets reorganized later. I am curious how many there are, too. doncram (talk) 19:51, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Okay, now sorted by state first, before refnum order. What else? :) doncram (talk) 06:49, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Would you like to make some announcement at wt:NRHP, or would you mind if i did? The list is complete and quite useful. Elkman has now incorporated it into his NRHP infobox generator too. He didn't say this exactly but I believe he took the completed list and merged it with his data, which is great. So infoboxes of places associated come in with external link to the MPS now. Regards, doncram (talk) 23:50, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

The Auto-categorizing Robot[edit]

Back in July, I asked your opinion about filing a request for a bot to add HD categories to HD articles so that we could remove Category:Historic districts in the United States from {{Infobox nrhp}}. See Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/The Auto-categorizing Robot: a bot has now been written and approved to carry out this task. It will add a state-level category to any article with {{Infobox nrhp}} that is tagged with "hd" or "nhld", unless (1) the names of multiple states appear, in which case it will add Category:Historic districts in the United States [so we can sort it manually later], or (2) there's already an HD category on the article. Nyttend (talk) 14:55, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Fort Phil Kearny[edit]

Hi. Would you be willing to create Fort Phil Kearny and Associated Sites as a redirect to Fort Phil Kearny? I am askign here since you were the one who added the NRHP infobox to the article. A redirect from the official NRHP name to the article where the topic is being discussed is useful to direct search queries. Thanks. --Polaron | Talk 23:24, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Weedpatch Camp[edit]

Thanks for creating the article. I actually went on a photo-spree through parts of central CA several months ago, and when handling my childhood home around Kern, I took a photo of what turned out to be an inaccurately addressed Weedpatch Camp (I had taken a photo of the Sunset School, which was important in relation to the history of the area --but not the NRHP site). I had a feeling something was fishy about the location, and some extensive internet research finally revealed what (and where!) the real buildings were. I then went back last September, while visiting my folks, to "take care of unfinished business". As a result I'll add some nice photos to your article. --Bobak (talk) 05:44, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

I saw that you added back (after I had previously removed) the WP:NRHP project banner to the talk page of Arroyo Seco Parkway‎.

Great Fire of 1910[edit]

You recently added a WP:NRHP banner to the talk page of Great Fire of 1910. With no mention of the NRHP in the article and with such a large region affected, I was wondering if there was any specific article or site that led to this tag. Though I admit I didn't look extensively, the only article about an NRHP listing that I could find that linked to the page was Avery Depot, a very small stub, and one that (IMO) has only a very minor association to the fire. Are there perhaps more sites (just no articles yet) that were listed because of their association with the fire? If there are more sites, the use of the NRHP banner is more justified, but if this is the only one, I think the use of the NRHP banner is pushing the bounds a bit.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 19:45, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I didn't even notice the note you left on the talk page; I didn't scroll down past the banners. I see now that the TR is linked from the Avery Depot article. My fault. Carry on! haha--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 19:49, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Nuts. I was up in Wallace just this summer; but I didn't have time to make it up to the Pulaski tunnel with my camera. Next time... --Ammodramus (talk) 23:20, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and I just looked at the article more carefully. In the major reference cited, should it be "Escapte" or is that your typo? (Since the source isn't online, I can't check it and correct it or [Sic] it myself.) --Ammodramus (talk) 23:24, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Unlikely that I'll be back in Wallace in the near (or even not-so-near) future. This summer, I had to drive to Spokane, and Wallace was the spot I randomly chose for a birding break. --Ammodramus (talk) 17:45, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Smile (graphic novel) redirect[edit]

Originally, Smile (comics) was at Smile (graphic novel). As per the guidelines, we want to keep disambiguation as general as possible, so I moved (graphic novel) to (comics). If there were two Smiles in the realm of comics, it could make sense to use (graphic novel) instead of (comics) in order to further disambiguate the two articles. (comics) is the default dismabiguation when disambiguation is needed. CüRlyTüRkeyTalkContribs 23:55, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

California Young Reader Medal[edit]

I have expanded the Winners listings to include illustrators —relying mainly on CRYM, with some corrections, see Talk: California Young Reader Medal.

At the same time I have tried, and saved, different formats for annual grouping (compare late 1980s, early 90s, late 90s, 2000s). Do you think it's clear which is most effective? or have a preference otherwise? --P64 (talk) 17:12, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mitchell Recreation Area, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shrapnel (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.
