Shoulda told you about this![edit]

Thaks for all the DC photo! Have you seen Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Register_of_Historic_Places/Fall_2011_Photo_Contest#Challenge_.233_Washington_DC. The contest starts on Friday October 21 (photos taken and uploaded after October 20)

I think there is a minor mistake on your part, and a major mistake on my part about the Takoma HD. I'll try to correct them tonight.

Gotta run.

Grant Road (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi, I've tagged Grant Road (disambiguation) for speedy deletion under G6, as it currently disambiguates only two pages of which one of these is the primary topic. I added a hatnote at Grant Road which should resolve the need to disambiguate from the Historic District. Best, France3470 (talk) 07:35, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

WP:PR[edit]

FYI Wikipedia:Peer review/National Register of Historic Places listings in Downtown Davenport, Iowa/archive1...when I nominate it for WP:FL I'll include you, and let you know ahead of time. CTJF83 20:24, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Farragutful (talk) 20:26, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Several reasons to say hi.

  • Outstanding photo work in DC
  • and starting the Dr. Franklin E. Kameny House
  • a Walking Map to the hardest place to get in DC (I hope)
  • the PR of Downtown Davenport should go well I'd think
  • I've rarely given out barnstars, but have to learn sometime. Just let me know when and where (and a maximum number) and I'll go and hire a truck.
  • Happy thanksgiving.

Sincerely,

Smallbones (talk) 03:26, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I knew about the boundary marker near the Potomac, and the map, but I was running out of daylight the day I was down there. We're supposed to have good weather here for the next week so I might try again. It's like going to the other side of the world for some reason and I know very little about South DC so I'll see what I can do and what kind of time I have. I want to get a picture of the Kameny House, however. Happy Thanksgiving. Farragutful (talk) 22:32, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
we all know you won the DC challenge to the photo contest. why didn't you self report? Slowking4†@1₭ 13:14, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Since you have more detailed experience about individual properties, in general the downtown properties are what, like early residences of the city? I mean I can look and count myself, but I guess I'm just thinking of something general to put in the lead to summarize all of the properties. I don't think I want to put # of houses, # of commercial buildings, # of fire stations, sounds boring to me. CTJF83 21:23, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

The downtown area is primarily made up of late 19th and early 20th century commercial buildings. It's also where the office buildings are located. Another focal point would be the government buildings. The primary residential buildings are apartment buildings, which includes the apartments above the commercial space on the ground floor. There are a few houses, but most of the houses in the dowtown area are now on the east and west listings.
I've been in town for a funeral and was going to try and get some pictures, but when I was able to do so its been cloudy. I'll be back next week and I'll try again. I thought I would focus on the west end, although the Putam-Parker Block needs a pic or two. Farragutful (talk) 14:36, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Awesome! That would be great! Ya, I've been trying to get some, but it's been real cloudy the last few weeks. Plus I work 3rd shift, so on the days I work, if the sun is even out, there is maybe 1-1.5 hours of sunlight left by the time I wake up. Thanks for your help! CTJF83 17:47, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Good work on the pics! Did you enjoy your weekend in the lovely QC? CTJF83 02:13, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Of course I had a lovely weekend in the QCs. Like you have to ask. I have a few more pics of houses on West Third that I'll upload today. I wanted to do more, but there wasn't enough time. I have tentative plans to return this summer. I can try and get out then and get whatever is still left, or at least redo my pics that I don't like. Farragutful (talk) 18:24, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I hope to get some myself, and get downtown to FL soon. CTJF83 22:01, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Sioux City, Iowa[edit]

I notice that you've recently made some edits to National Register of Historic Places listings in Woodbury County, Iowa, and created an article about the Badgerow Building and the Warrior Hotel in Sioux City.

If you're planning to work up a set of articles on Sioux City sites, I expect to be up there with my camera within the next month or so (at the request of User:Frankie Rae, who's been working hard to improve our coverage of buildings by William L. Steele). If there are specific buildings that you'd like photographed, please feel free to leave a list at my talk page. If there are particular aspects of buildings that want to be shown, suggestions would be welcome. Ammodramus (talk) 16:50, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Will put the Badgerow Bldg, Warrior Hotel, Augustana Lutheran, and Sioux City Baptist on my to-be-photographed list. If the last is by Steele, you might be well advised to contact Frankie Rae, who seems very well informed about him and might have the information needed to reconcile your conflicting sources. Ammodramus (talk) 17:16, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Seeing I've been invoked, I'm joining this conversation. I've been working on and off on an article about the Steele-designed Prairie School church at 1301 Nebraska. Originally built as the First Congregational Church, later sold to the Sioux City Baptists, and most recently the Iglesia Pentecostes Evangelica Principe de Paz. There's quite a bit of contradictory information about it, and I've been working through it slowly. Was there something in particular you were puzzled by? --Frankie Rae (talk) 03:28, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Will definitely try to hit 1301 Nebraska on my next trek to Sioux City, which I hope will be later this month. Are there any particular features of the building that I should try to shoot?
Incidentally, I've finally posted my photos at Commons:Category:T. S. Martin and Co. department store (Sioux City, Iowa). I still haven't finished editing my pictures of the Woodbury County Courthouse, but I haven't forgotten it. Ammodramus (talk) 05:07, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I've been battling a cold and haven't been online much the last several days. The Badgerow Bldg has a plethora of decorative elements including Indian heads, entryways and the rooftop level. The Warrior Hotel also has a variety of terra cotta decor that would be nice to capture. Augustana Lutheran is a nice church overall, but I'm not sure if there is anything in particular that you need to focus on.Farragutful (talk) 19:08, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

DC pix[edit]

I tried to finish up the DC NRHP photos on Thursday, but didn't get all of them. The Gallinger Hospital should be easy, but I got the wrong building! There's a new listing which I hadn't noticed for a school. The SE 9 boundary marker would require some ropes or maybe mountain-climbing equipment (not to mention the 2 mile one way walk) to get under the I-295 bridge safely, but at least I found a 1907 photo. Consider that one done - or maybe hire a helicopter! I'll be going to get the Carousel early AM on May 4 to get shots without kids in them, and will take care of the odds and ends then. I know that I've put in a few photos under the rule "better some picture than nothing" - if you have anything that you think should be re-taken please note that at Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/unillustrated DC

All the best,

Smallbones (talk) 19:14, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Getting some of the final photos has been on my to-do list, but I've been abnormally busy with work and haven't gotten to it. I also took a picture of the wrong building for the Gallinger Hospital. When I tried to find out which of the buildings in the complex it was I learned that the building has been torn down, although it is still listed on both the DC historic list and the NRHP. I will try and get the Margaret Murray Washington School soon. I know where it's at and I should have time this month. At the same time I might attempt the wilds of SW Washington to get a photo of the last boundary marker. We'll see.Farragutful (talk) 20:08, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks for all the work. It'll be great to get the whole list of photos marked "done", but it certainly will get done in time for Wikimania. I'll advise against SE 9. I went out there Thursday and it's a nice 1+ mile walk in the park, but then gets all overgrown and swampy with fallen down trees (btw I saw signs of beaver habitation). After hacking though the undergrowth, I got a good view of the "underpass" for the bridge - there really isn't one. It's a steep pile of rocks and gravel going from the bridge concrete to the water directly below for maybe 30 yards out to the underpass - then 8 lanes across of the same thing - and presumably another 30 yards of the same on the other side going back to the mainland. Pretty dangerous stuff - it might be safer just parking on the side of the interstate - but I'd never recommend that. So, in short, a 1907 photo seems good enough. (I'll send photos of the "landmarks" if you really don't believe me!)
All the best,
Smallbones (talk) 21:31, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
      • Sounds like there's no reason to go to SW DC. BTW, I'm going to be out of town during Wikimania. Thanks for including me in the info you sent earlier. I'll continue to look up info and write articles on the remaining DC properties. Farragutful (talk) 21:41, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

5pm Thursday May 3 at the National Cathedral[edit]

But 1st you might want to send an encouraging message to User:Ellin Beltz

I don't know if you are still interested, but I'll be meeting with the Spring Flower Show people at the All Hallows Guild Carousel at the above time and place. Please join if you can. Rain date is 9am the following morning, and I may go Friday evening as well to get the carousel in action, with indistinct pictures of kids. I don't like the potential hazards of photographing identifiable kids, so my main thrust will be on the animal figures while the kids aren't there (i.e. Thursday). I also promised you and a couple others dinner - how about that Friday at an old NRHP firehouse in Georgetown, the Vigilant Firehouse (Washington, D.C.)? Smallbones (talk) 15:04, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the invitation. I cannot make it May 3, but I am interested in dinner on the 4th. However, my mom has developed significant health problems so I might go back to Iowa that weekend.

St. John's replica location[edit]

Where is the building Commons:File:St. John's SS 1.jpg? Is it on the grounds of the Georgia Ave. church, the Rosensteel Ave. church, or somewhere else? I was thinking of proposing an article move from St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Silver Spring, Maryland) to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (Montgomery County, Maryland) because of the two locations, but if the replica is outside Montgomery County, then it gets a bit complicated (unless there is no other St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Maryland). --Closeapple (talk) 00:56, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

  • I couldn't agree more. Actually, I was kind of surprised last summer by how many were in half-way decent shape. I also realized that another one has been torn down (William Claussen House). Svendsen has a picture in one of her books and none of the ones on that bloock look like it. There's a "newer" house where it should have been with a different address. A house with that address (2215 W. 2nd St.) doesn't exist. I think I got all the ones that are still standing. Farragutful (talk) 02:07, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

metro_archbishop[edit]

Is there some reason you are removing the metro_archbishop field, which lists the metropolitan archbishop of suffragan dioceses? Elizium23 (talk) 00:45, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, archbishops have no direct leadership authority in the suffragan sees and should not be listed as "Leadership" in a suffragan see. They preside at the meetings of the provincial bishops, but primarily function as the diocesan bishop of the archdiocese. The communion of any diocese with the larger church is found between its bishop and the Bishop of Rome. That is why in the Eucharistic Prayer the assembly, by way of the priest, prays for the pope and the diocesan bishop(s) and not the metropolitan, unless of course they are in a metropolitan archdiocese. An archbishop only exercises "authority" in a suffragan see when there is a serious irregularity in the see or when he is elected, or appointed, administrator sede vacante. Even then his authority may be limited given the circumstances. Farragutful (talk) 01:30, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
You have good points. Perhaps that is a discussion for Template talk:Infobox diocese to clarify the field's usage. Elizium23 (talk) 01:45, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
I hadn't thought about that. I don't care for the English "Infobox diocese" to begin with. I prefer the Italian one. Farragutful (talk) 01:51, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
It is probably best to seek wider consensus on a change like this before implementing it all over. The template talk page may be a small audience. You could try WT:CATHOLIC or start an RFC. Elizium23 (talk) 02:04, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Wichita, Kansas), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Glennon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Image request[edit]

Do you ever get down below Muscatine when you're back in Iowa? I visited the state for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and while I had only a little time, I was able to get photos of a few National Register sites, including all in Louisa County — except one. The County Line Bridge is on a dirt road, and that day was wet enough that I feared getting stuck. If you have a chance when you're next in the area, I'd appreciate it if you could try to get down that way, so that National Register of Historic Places listings in Louisa County, Iowa could be fully illustrated. Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 22:07, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

It's rare that I get below Muscatine these days. That being said, I do know the area and I was thinking at some point I might go down that way. I will only be in Iowa for a weekend this winter so there is no time and I will probably be there next summer. I was planning to go to Clinton County (to the north), however, that could change. Thanks for getting the Louisa County pics. I don't blame you for not going down that road. I don't like them on sunny dry days. I also looked at the map just now and I noticed the bridge is further south than what the coordinates they give show. I'll change it. Farragutful (talk) 23:44, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Evening WikiSalon on Wednesday, March 12 from 7 PM – 9 PM. Meet up with Wikipedians for coffee at the Cove co-working space in Dupont Circle! If you cannot make it in the evening, join us at our...

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Montage[edit]

Nice job on the montages! Are you going to make one for the QC page, and any buildings you want pics of for Bettendorf or East Moline? CTF83! 22:54, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I was thinking I would make one for the QCs. The Bettendorf pics were horrible. I'm going to be in town at the end of the month and thought I might look around then. I was going to re-shoot my pics of the convention center and I was thinking that Duck Creek at Devils Glen is nice. I was also considering the I-74 Bridge from Moline looking toward downtown Bettendorf. If you want to take some of these pics now, or any others you can think of, I would certainly use them. I'm less familiar with East Moline than the others, so whatever you think represents the city would certainly help. I hope all is well.Farragutful (talk) 23:04, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
EM is definitely my least familiar, but I'll see what I can come up with. CTF83! 01:20, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Good work on Bettendorf! You fixed my slacking of taking a I-74 pic! :) CTF83! 10:11, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Not a problem. I was in town in late April so I drove around and found a couple of places to photograph. I'll try to do the same next month in East Moline, but to be honest I'm not sure what that could be. Farragutful (talk) 13:10, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Two edit-a-thons coming up![edit]

Hello there!

I'm pleased to tell you about two upcoming edit-a-thons:

  • This Tuesday, April 29, from 2:30 to 5:30 PM, we have the Freer and Sackler edit-a-thon. (Sorry for the short notice!)
  • On Saturday, May 10 we have the Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon, in partnership with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, from 10 AM to 5 PM.

We have more stuff coming up in May and June, so make sure to keep a watch on the DC meetup page. As always, if you have any recommendations or requests, please leave a note on the talk page.

Wikipedia and YOUR History: Taking Control of the Internet[edit]

See you at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Street, Laurel, MD on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM EST. See http://www.meetup.com/Wikimedia-DC/events/205494212/ for more information. Geraldshields11 (talk) 02:13, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

Photos of US Cathedrals[edit]

You the Man!! You took my little project of adding photos of Archdioceses/Dioceses and made it grow. Hopefully we will get them all. Is there anybody out there in Kansas listening? Roberto221 (talk) 04:58, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. My project was to get articles written for all the cathedrals and then get photos. I got three photos this year by asking people in those areas if they could take them. The guy who took the Youngstown photo travels so I'm hoping the rest in that general area are taken care of now. Kansas, as you say, is the question. I haven't been there in a long time and I have no plans to go there any time soon. I'll keep at it though. Farragutful (talk) 12:12, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Roswell Spencer House[edit]

Sorry about that. I was looking through the new photos on Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/Unused images, and I forgot to check that your photo was actually new and not a removal. I removed the NRHP refnum template from the photo so it won't happen again. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 23:23, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

St. Raphael/St. Patrick in Madison, Wisconsin[edit]

From what I understand, St. Raphael is now demolished and St. Patrick is now the Pro Cathedral for Madison until the new St. Raphael is constructed. But there isn't a lot of info for St. Patrick on their wiki page. I wanted to change the "List of the Catholic cathedrals of the United States" page to reflect this.

http://www.gcatholic.org/churches/northamerica/5480.htm

Roberto221 (talk) 08:17, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm skeptical of the GCatholic information. The Madison situation has always been unclear to me. I know that St. Raphael's was taken down some time ago and a "Cathedral Parish" with the two remaining downtown churches was established. Parish-wise I understand the situation, but not cathedral-wise. Only one church gets the chair unless there are co-cathedrals, and every Catholic diocese is supposed to have a cathedral church with a cathedra. The Diocese of Madison website is most unhelpful unless one wants to make a donation. The parish website does not designate either church a pro-cathedral, in fact it lists them as Holy Redeemer Church and St. Patrick Church. The parish offices are located at St. Patrick's, but that doesn't make it the pro-cathedral per se. If I read it correctly the new cathedral, which will be located on the site of the former cathedral, will be be named St. Raphael's. The cathedral fire was ten years ago this month and there does not appear to be any noticeable movement toward building a new cathedral, which I find strange, if not curious. I also googled "st. patrick pro-cathedral madison wi" and got nothing but St. Patrick's Church in Madison and St. Raphael's Cathedral. Personally, I would do nothing at this time unless you have information that I could not find. If not, you could contact the parish or the diocese to see what they say. They should know, but then again they may be just as confused. I worked for the Church long enough to know that that's a distinct possibility. Farragutful (talk) 14:10, 6 March 2015 (UTC)


That's the same way I felt when I researched it, confusing and unclear which is why I contacted you to see if you had any insight.

Roberto221 (talk) 14:12, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

I think I would leave it alone for the time being. If the diocese makes a move in one direction or another then you can adjust the pages accordingly. Farragutful (talk) 22:36, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

Why are you redirecting historical building pages? CTF83! 20:29, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Le Claire is misspelled in the titles. Farragutful (talk) 20:30, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
LOL, good call. Sorry, I shoulda known it wasn't for a bad reason. CTF83! 20:32, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
I found the NRHP nomination forms/photos six months ago so I'm rewriting all the pages in Scott County as I have time. I thought I'd make other corrections as well. There were only five incorrect photos. I'll be there in two weeks and I'm planning to retake them, although I suspect the Spencer House in PV has been torn down.

Disambiguation link notification for April 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of county courthouses in Iowa, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hardin County Courthouse (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.
