Pima Museum[edit]

I am not an expert on WWII US Army Air Corps units. When I was at the Pima museum, there was a very large exhibit to one of the bomb groups that set up shop in England to do runs over Germany. I don't remember which one, but it was almost like its own separate museum inside of the museum. Anyways, are you LDS? Isaac Crumm 05:25, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Hey, Utah Scenic Byways was featured on Wikipedia's main page yesterday under the heading "Did you know.... from Wikipedia's newest articles". They put a little kudo's on my talk page for creating the article, but it was actually your contribution that was mentioned (Mirror Lake Highway being the highest paved road in Utah). So passing along the kudo's. Thanks for helping with the article. Davemeistermoab 01:05, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Josh Kelley[edit]

The article has a tag saying "The introduction of this article is too short". Do you think the introduction section is really too short? Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 03:48, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

OK. Thanks for explaining. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 03:57, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Resurrecting the Utah State Highways Wikiproject[edit]

I have proposed resurrecting the Utah State Highways Wikiproject here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Subprojects. I think the decision hinges on are the editors currently working on Utah road article planning to stay, or do we plan to move on to other interests (which is fine, just need to know how many plan to stick around). You've done some great work on Utah roads articles recently, if you would like to opine, please do so.Dave (talk) 05:51, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Ayuda para traducir[edit]

Hola, soy Jeneme. Ví que tradujiste el artículo sobre el Libro de Mormón al papiamento. ¿Podrías traducir el de la Iglesia. Aunque sólo sean unas cuantas frases, por favor.

Si quieres que traduzca algún artículo al catalán, al gallego, al occitano o al aragonés, dímelo. --Jeneme (talk) 12:13, 31 May 2008 (UTC)


I have tons of pictures of the Uintahs[edit]

I have several pictures. None of them are as high resolution as what my Nikon D80 takes. I took a bunch with my Canon SD 750 at full res though. I will get them posted on my flickr account and mark them as CC Attribution Share-Alike. My flickr user account is slc_jm. (Note the same as my yahoo ID). http://flickr.com/photos/<user account name here> is the general format that I use. Climbjm (talk) 19:03, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

I've added more pictures to my flickr account under the CCBYSA license if you'd like to take a look. I am still digging through my hundreds of Gig's worth of photos for more mountain pictures. Climbjm (talk) 16:04, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Redirection[edit]

Instead of making an edit like this, please instead create a redirect at WYO 150. Thank you. --NE2 11:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

High Uintas Wilderness[edit]

When a page is tagged for speedy deletion as a copyvio, I follow the link to the purported source and compare it to the article. I'll also spot check by googling statements from the article, to see if I get exact matches. In this case, it looked like several paragraphs were added verbatim from this link, including some statistics. On that basis, I deleted the article. I'm looking back, though, and seeing that the violating text was in the very first version of the article, posted on 12 March 2006. What's interesting there is that, since it's three whole paragraphs that were copied, it's possible that the source (wilderness.net) copied us, which wouldn't be copyvio at all as far as this article is concerned. But I cannot determine a revision date for that webpage, and it was listed as an external link on this article, so it's unclear - which means, unfortunately, that we err on the side of caution and delete the article.

The Speedy criteria states that, if there is no non-violating version of the article to revert to, that the article should be deleted, which is what happened. Let me have a look, and I'll see if I can pull out some formatting or source information that might assist in rebuilding the article. I concur that the subject is quite notable, so we need something. Let me have a look. UltraExactZZ Claims ~ Evidence 12:26, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

 Done. I've restored some of the information, mostly the infobox and references. Unfortunately, there was no text that could be re-used, so I stubbed-out a simple lead. Hope this helps, and I apologize for any confusion; I could have made things simple and done this last night, but here we are. Please ping me if I can be of further assistance.

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for the Barnstar. I'm still working on Holy War (Utah vs. BYU). I'd like to expand a number of the sections so keep your eye out. Also, I cannot take credit for the infobox. That was done by UteFan16 (talk) and was his idea so that bit of credit belongs with the Barnstar you awarded to him.

WikiProject Colorado[edit]

The year 2011 has brought many changes to the State of Colorado. We have a new Governor and other state officers, two new U.S. Representatives, many new state legislators, and a new Mayor of Denver. WikiProject Colorado is updating many Colorado articles. Many Colorado places, people, and organizations need new articles. Portal:Colorado needs new featured articles.

Can you help us? Please see our list of some requested articles. If you wish, you may join WikiProject Colorado at Wikipedia:WikiProject Colorado/Members. If you have any questions, please leave me a message at User talk:Buaidh or e-mail me at Special:EmailUser/Buaidh. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Don't forget the Wikipedia 10th Anniversary event in Boulder tomorrow. Yours aye,  Buaidh  21:47, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
