Nice work on Wood County Townships[edit]

Great work! Just a suggestion: You can categorize your articles by including [[Category:Wood County, Ohio]]. utcursch | talk 17:46, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Oh, I already added a category to all your previous articles. So, no need to worry. utcursch | talk 18:01, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi good work but are you going to write a little about them? James Janderson 12:55, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi that's great its just as long as nobody deletes them. Some users might see an empty page and put it up for deletion. Keep it up! James Janderson 13:02, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Colleges in American Samoa[edit]

Thanks for creating the list of colleges and universities in American Samoa. I was skipping that territory because I didn't know that it had any colleges. Good job on formatting that list. —Cswrye 21:24, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Kelleys Island Township question[edit]

Hi Frank12, I was wondering where you got your information that Kelleys Island, Ohio is a current township in Erie County, Ohio in the article you made: Kelleys Island Township, Erie County, Ohio? The official website for Erie County lists Kelleys Island as a village and not a township [1], so I removed it from the Erie County page list of Townships. I will nominate the Kelleys Island Township, Erie County, Ohio article for deletion in 24 hours unless you can back up your article with verifiable sources. Thanks, Ruhrfisch 00:41, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

1922 Big Ten football champions[edit]

[2] I am not saying that this can not be wrong but where did you get chicago as co 22 football champsSmith03 19:51, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

I look at the 2006 Big Ten football media guide today. The Big Ten lists Chicago as co champs for 1922. I would bet they probably always have the mistake was probably made by not realizing that Chicago was also an undefeated team. I also corrected Purdue for 1932 Smith03 23:21, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Alaska superimposed on the United States[edit]


I really like what you did with Alaska superimposed on the United States. It's really hard to get perspective from a map if you don't have something like that.

I'm an exchange student in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and I'm from Fairfax, Virginia, USA. I'm teaching a cultural studies class at the high school where I'm doing my exchange. The class covers all countries that speak English. I'm finding that the students (and I) have difficulty grasping the scale of the United States compared to Germany. Do you know of a map with Germany superimposed on the United States? Or possibly the European Union? I have searched extensively in the Internet for one. Would you be able to make one? If not, could you point me in the right direction to how I could get such a map? Thanks! KevinPuj 17:28, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Cool! Thanks for the map. Let me know about any further work you do. The comparisons I always use for America and Germany are that Germany is about the size of Montana and that America is about twice the size of the European Union. That map is excellent for perspective. But once again, keep me updated. Thanks! KevinPuj 21:43, 14 September 2007 (UTC)


Hello Frank: I am working on this project ( and am looking for more information about Macomber Vocational High School than I'm finding in wikipedia. I particularly need/want the name of the architect, the street address - and, a real long shot, anything about the sculpture on the building. Also, is the place abandoned? Destroyed? Used for raves? What is happening there now? I look forward to hearing from you. Carptrash 23:36, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

CSA Maps[edit]

I had just started creating the article on the Mansfield-Bucyrus, OH Combined Statistical Area. I was wondering if you can make a CSA map of the Mansfield-Bucyrus, OH CSA to put in the upper right of the article. I see that you did that for the Toledo-Fremont, OH CSA.---OHWiki 00:24, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Western Buckeye League map[edit]

St. Marys Memorial is spelled incorrectly on the map you created. It isn't a catholic school, so it is spelled with no apostrophe. It is simply spelled "St. Marys Memorial".

And I was wondering...could you make a map that includes Bellefontaine, Coldwater, Delphos St. John's, and Bluffton on it along with all the current members? I want to put a map similar to the one you have created under the "former members" area of the article. (if you have time...thanks!) Ohio614 (talk) 19:43, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

If you are keeping the current schools on the map with the former members (which would be great) might not have enough room in Allen County to place Bluffton or Delphos St. John' could include Bluffton in Hancock County (since Bluffton is part of both counties) and include Delphos St. John's in Van Wert County (since Delphos is part of both counties). Just a suggestion. Thanks for working on it. Ohio614 (talk) 22:50, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Looks good! Thanks again. Ohio614 (talk) 02:08, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

OHSAA article cleanup[edit]

Hey there. I noticed you created or edited many of the articles listed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pioneer Conference. It was mentioned a WikiProject collaboration be set forth to make these articles similar in layout. I was wondering if you thought it would be a good idea to post the contents of User talk:Stepshep/Sandbox at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pioneer Conference and if you would be willing to help head the effort? Let me know what you think. §hep¡Talk to me! 00:53, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey. JonRidinger has agreed to help us as well. Since you two are the big article editors in this area. Would you mind working with User:JonRidinger at Wikipedia talk:OH/HS Football Conferences to get a standard set down? Thank you so much! §hep¡Talk to me! 22:06, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Continuation of discussion over notability of Ohio high school sports conferences[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because you recently participated in an AfD discussion regarding the notability of high school sports conferences in Ohio State.

Conference maps[edit]

Hey, I noticed you made some of the high school conference maps and I just wondered how exactly you went about this - where you got the maps from, and what programs you used to create them. I'd like to work on extending those a little, both within the Ohio articles to preserve them, but also expanding them to Minnesotan high school conferences, where I do most of my editing on the subject. Thanks much. matt91486 (talk) 02:14, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

FYI, the CIC map you posted is inaccurate. It omits the non-Big Ten member (UIC) and affiliate (UW-Milwaukee).

Ohio State Football - All-Time Big Ten Records[edit]

For your consideration:

I know that no one 'owns' wiki content, but I look to you as an important early editor in the history of this table. As such, I wanted to chat with you before going to the larger community at the talk page for Ohio State Buckeyes football.

This table seems quite large, complicated, and it is being messed up by lots of good-intentioned updates by various users who are not maintaining the overall integrity that you had originally introduced to the table. The Big Ten columns get some updates, the Overall columns get fewer updates, and the result is messy. Interesting to note that the table header still says 'As of November 26, 2010', despite 2 more years of partial updates.

Perhaps it would make sense to pull the table back to the simpler, and perhaps the larger long term/rich historical importance of, Ohio record against Big Ten teams in Big Ten conference play ONLY. Another way to think of this - the table has not been expanded to show every-single-game against evey-other-team in the USA, so why chose only these 12 teams to show their non-conference results against Ohio?

Another question - and I truly do not know the answer - regards the treatment of the 'vacated' games. Do these still count in the historical record, or do they cease to exist? Whatever the answer, the header should mention it.

Final question - I've seen other sports-related pages where there will be 'hidden' text directing users to 'please do not update this table until the current season is complete.' Would it make sense to ask the same thing for this table?

Overall, would it be worthwhile to adjust the lead (and cleanup the resulting table) to say something like:

*This chart shows Ohio State's all-time results, by opponent, in Big Ten Conference games. Results are shown from when Ohio State joined the Big Ten in 1912. Results do not include Chicago after the 1939 season, and includes newer conference members from when they joined Ohio in the Big Ten: Michigan since 1917; Michigan State 1953; Penn State 1993, and; Nebraska 2011. Results do include Ohio State's self-imposed 'vacated' 2010 season, as these games have not been deleted by the Conference. -or- Results do not include Ohio State's self-imposed 'vacated' 2010 season

(Results as of completion of 2012 Big Ten Conference season)

<>!-- please do not update until completion of next full Big Ten Conference season -- <>

I look forward to your thoughts. Feel free to mark them down here, so as to keep our discussion in one spot.

Thank you.Jmg38 (talk) 22:39, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Jmg38!
I appreciate your input into the table and for reminding me to look into something I had forgotten all about! After thinking about it, I like your suggestion of just keeping it to Big Ten matchups and not overall matchups. I agree that it is too confusing to see two sets of numbers, but if we clearly state above the table that it is just for Big Ten matchups, ie:
"This table only includes Ohio State's all-time conference record against other Big Ten members and not non-league matchups. Ohio State began Big Ten play in 1913, so games before then would not count in this table. Likewise, any matchups against current Big Ten opponents that occurred when they were not in the league (Chicago after 1939, Michigan between 1907-1917, Michigan State before 1953, Penn State before 1993, and Nebraska before 2011) would not count either." And maybe something like "see Big Ten History for further information"
I'll figure out those numbers quickly and post a sample of what the table could look like here. Thanks! Frank12 (talk) 04:00, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Also, this will be somewhat confusing thanks to Ohio State and Penn State's vacated victories. Ohio State vacated one victory against Penn State to have an overall 14-13 record against them as of the completion of this year. However, they keep the losses on their records. So despite Ohio State's 14-13 record against Penn State with the vacated wins, PSU will claim an 8-15 record against OSU with their vacated wins. Without vacated wins, the all-time series is 15-13 Ohio State (13-7 Ohio State in Big Ten play). I don't care which we put in there, but I guess we should research to see if any other Big Ten team vacated wins over the years against Ohio State? Frank12 (talk) 04:14, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

The table[edit]

OK, how's this look? (I got to this quicker than I planned):

This table only includes Ohio State's all-time conference record against other Big Ten members and not non-league matchups. Ohio State began Big Ten play in 1913, so games before then would not count in this table. Likewise, any matchups against Big Ten opponents that occurred when they were not in the league (Chicago after 1939, Michigan between 1907-1916, Michigan State before 1953, Penn State before 1993, and Nebraska before 2011) would not count either. (See Big Ten History for further information.)

For simplicity's sake, Ohio State's vacated wins from 2010 ARE included. (See 2010 Ohio State Buckeyes football team for further information.) Penn State's victories over Ohio State that were vacated from 1998-2011 are also included, as they still count as losses for Ohio State and not victories for Penn State. (See NCAA and Big Ten sanctions for Penn State.)

Frank12 (talk) 05:53, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

That was fast work!! Thanks. Problem of multiple teams with vacated records - maybe it is simpler to KEEP the vacated games and simply note it in the lead? "Table does include results from Ohio State's 2010 vacated season and Penn State's vacated xxxx season". As long as the assumption is clearly mentioned up front, should be okay??
Another item - sortable table? Jmg38 (talk) 09:41, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Updated with those suggestions. I'm not sure how to color the background of the top rows, it won't work for me. Also, the link to the 2010 season is there in case someone wants to see who Ohio State played that season and would have vacated a win to. Frank12 (talk) 14:38, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Looks great. I like your addition of the link to the 2010 season. Should it also mention that it does include results from Penn State vacated wins, including a link to that article? Would drop one word - "current" - since Chicago is no longer a current Big Ten participant. I can take a look at the background colour after the table is posted. Do you plan to post directly, with edit summary (something like 'Big Ten all time history table reflects games against teams while active in conference'), or post in Talk first? Might be better to post to the article and let folks respond with a talk article if they feel it is necessary.
Alright, I posted the table and its description in the talk section of the page for Ohio State Buckeyes football to see what others think. If we can just get the colors back in there, I think it'll be a great addition to the page. Frank12 (talk) 20:29, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
