Neighborhoods in Lincoln, Nebraska[edit]

Hi Hanyou, I saw your undeletion request for the Lincoln neighborhoods article, and I think I see what happened here.

I'm not sure whether you realize this, but you had originally submitted this as a sort of "article proposal" (if you will), via the Articles for Creation page. Since you have an account, that step wasn't really necessary... you could've created it from scratch by visiting the empty page. However, it was approved, and some (or all) of the text from your proposal has in fact been a live article since December.

Was there information you'd added to the proposed Creation that didn't make it to the mainspace copy? The bot that left messages here states that the creation proposal was dormant for at least 6 months, so I'm assuming everything made it safely over once the article went live. These proposals eventually expire, whether or not they ever became anything, so that's basically what the bot was warning you about -- without respect to the ultimate fate of the proposal. So, I'm not sure anything bad happened at all, but if you think otherwise, we can talk to an administrator to try and view that creation draft again.

Let me know... and thank you for your help with creating and improving local articles! There don't seem to be too many of us Lincolnites on here. :) Hope to continue seeing you around.

History of Lincoln, Nebraska[edit]

I'm seeing the great work you've been doing to write up the city's history. It has been one of my dreams to have the history of Lincoln on Wikipedia for quite some time, so I'm glad you have taken up getting a working model running. What you've done is no small task... it seemed so daunting to me that it's something I didn't even begin on. Excellent work.

Since this section is looking good with sizable subsections as well, I'm wondering if you've considered eventually splitting "History of Lincoln, Nebraska" into an article of its own. As I'm sure you've noticed, Omaha's history has its own article... my vision is something similar, because then it could thrive and grow to whatever length with even more images to accompany it and even include more mention of one-off historical incidents (such as the 1894 Rock Island railroad wreck). I see that currently, History of Lincoln, Nebraska already redirects to the section.

I plant to jump in and add what I can at some point. Thank you for all of your work.

--OrbitHawk (talk) 20:05, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey OrbitHawk, thanks for the kind words and we would love to have on on board ^_^ ! The task was so daunting for me, too :( ... truthfully, the one who really got the ball going was Gmcbjames. If it wasn't for him, I that we'd still just have the paltry two paragraphs of "Lincoln was named after Abraham Lincoln", etc. ~_~ . if you would like, please see Gmcbjames's user talk page and please feel free to chime in - the more we have to work on this, the better ^_^ !
As far as the separate page goes - I think it's a great idea and something we should do eventually - but I think we should wait a bit until we get most, if not all of the history that we would like to include on the Lincoln page complete... at least initially, before making a new page. Keep things consistent, in one place, keep the years in the right order, etc. Once that gets done, then I think we could transfer it and make a pretty good summary on the original Lincoln page :) . Then at that time, we could also remove the construction banner (the more exposure right now, the better, right :p heh ^_~ ?). At least that's my two cents - please let me know what you think ^^ !
...anyways, please do join in on editing the history of Lincoln XD (and anything else you would like to ^_~ )! Let us collaborate over on Gmcbjames's talk page and see where we get us :) (it's worked for us so far ;p ~)! I take it you're in the Lincoln area - it'd be cool if all of us from Lincoln could sometime have a mini-Wiki get-together conference or something like that :p . I did see your user page... were you CrunchySkies at one time :o ??? Haven't seen him around in a while :( ~...
Ah well, cheers and nice to meet you (more-or-less ^^ heh ;) )! Also, I apologize about my sentencing here - if it seems to wonder around :p ... to tired to think straight tonight ~_~ *sigh*~..... Hanyou23 (talk) 05:25, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Cool. :) Yeah, I was CS. It is good to talk to you again. It looks like the talk on Gmcbjames' page has gotten pretty long, but I'll have a look and help out where I can. It's great that something like this is finally in the works. I agree that a local meetup would be fun at some point. --OrbitHawk (talk) 05:19, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
OrbitHawk Darn CS >o< . Luckily, though, it does look like the suggestion Gmcbjames had - to make a user page over on Wikimedia Commons helped take me off of their list :p . Sometimes it just takes the simplest of things to fix things :p (it would have been nice if my user page over here on Wikipedia would have applied to WikiCommons as well - but then again, whatever :p ~)~.....
...and yeah, I agree, that talk has gotten pretty long over on Gmcbjames' page (but we're having a good time talking :p heh ^_~ !). I think what we were talking about needing to add last... if I remember right, is needing to write up something up about the great bank heist back in the '30's, Charles Starkweather, Helen Boosalis, the trollies of Lincoln, I think something about the mass exodus of Downtown businesses back in the '70's & '80's (including the failed Centrum - on my to-do photo list)... I just remembered Cool Crest after looking at some pages online (might be a nice one to add, too ^_~ ). I must be missing something, but of course anything else of anyone's interest, too ;) . The '97 snow storm might also be one to add. We haven't quite made it to the 21st Century yet, but we were discussing the recent flood - the one they're now calling an over 100-year flood (unofficially, I think :o ). Another couple of idea that just came to mind is the Antelope Valley Project and the West Haymarket development.
So many things to put into the history of Lincoln - but these are just a few ideas :p . Hope I was able to sum it up for you a bit and anything you'd like to add, too, please just mention it for "in the know" and discussion purposes ^_^ .
I might be out-'n about tomorrow again for some additional photos... so any requests of anything you would like a photo of, I'd be happy to do/take :) !
Anywho, cheers and please have a good night ^^ !~ Hanyou23 (talk) 06:09, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Alright, cool. Those all seem like good things to include. I replied on Gmcbjames' page just now before I saw your reply here. I do like the idea of including historical news things such as crimes, etc. in some way. I did have the 1997 storm on my mind, as well as Starkweather which you guys had mentioned previously. 1894 train wreck is a good idea too, I think. There was also a destructive fire in the Haymarket in the 1930s or so -- I might be wrong on the date, as I only became aware of it recently and don't know too many details. West Haymarket/Antelope Valley would be good additions as well.
Speaking of the Antelope Valley Project, it might be nice to have some photos of that, if it isn't still flooded. :P --OrbitHawk (talk) 06:27, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── OrbitHawk - the more variety, the better ^_~ ! I do have one photo of Antelope Vally from yesterday here:,_Lincoln,_Nebraska,_USA.jpg
...and I'm planning on getting more. Just have to wait for it to look a little perkier outside and a little less cloudy/rainy :p . The flood's gone for now from Antelope Creek - just high water in the concrete channel... they're probably still draining Holmes Lake, although I haven't been by there since before the flood to see >_> .....

I'll leave a comment over on Gmcbjames' page also... planning on going over to Gateway today for some photos, hopefully :p .

Until later ^_^ !~ Hanyou23 (talk) 19:38, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Indian Village/Arapahoe Village in Lincoln, NE[edit]

Hi, Hanyou. There was an edit to Neighborhoods in Lincoln, Nebraska regarding Indian Village/Arapahoe Village here. Could you check this out? Thank you. Cheers Gmcbjames (talk) 16:58, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Gmcbjames! I've emailed the neighborhood association... we'll see what kind of response we get :) . Thanks for pointing it out ^^ ! Hanyou23 (talk) 19:03, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
Gmcbjames, got a reply back... sounds like the name Arapahoe Village is not something that is known except for a garden. So, looks like the edit in question is ok :) . Cheers ^^ ! Hanyou23 (talk) 19:39, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Recent Edits to Lincoln Southwest[edit]

Hi, Hanyou. Your recent edit [1] to the Lincoln Southwest High School page was a great addition. There does appear, however, to be some formatting errors near the Choir and Band sections. I don't want to revert the whole edit, so I've removed a few things that could use another look. Thanks! CH3374H (talk) 17:20, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Lincoln GA review[edit]

Hello Hanyou23, I thought commenting on your talk page may ping you though an email alert. Yash! has continued with the GA review after a short break. I have addressed some of his concerns, though there are some items I need your help with - mostly finding sources. No worries, if you don't have time - as I know you have your hands full - I will tackle what I can. Have a great day and enjoy the fall leaves - something I really miss! Cheers Gmcbjames (talk) 18:08, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Gmcbjames - Sorry, I've thought about sending you a message - just can only do so many things right now xD meh. Just got out of the hospital yesterday afternoon since having been there from Saturday morning... got sick before that - Thursday afternoon of last week. Details, if any, probably would head to your email box instead ;o ... but I'm on the recoup and am out of it for the time being ~o~ . Luckily my wife has been able to tale today and tomorrow off - which helps - but I'm pretty darn weak... safe to say that I've lost around 8 lbs. so far during this whole ordeal and I'm still on a restricted diet :/ . There are so many things backed up on my to-do list that I don't have the energy for right now, but I'll take a look over at the Lincoln page when I am able :) . So sorry for my absence ~o~ ~..... ;o Hanyou23 (talk) 18:42, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Hanyou, so sorry to hear of your ordeal, do email me and take care of yourself. No worries, I can do what I can with the review and it seems it will draw out over weeks, so no rush on anything. I have tomorrow free, so I can spend time on finding the sources needed by Yash!'s review. My only concern is my edits, so when you are completely in top shape, you can change what you wish - again - I am sure the review will continue for a few more weeks so there is absolutely no rush. The best to you, my thoughts are with you - Gmcbjames (talk) 19:55, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Hanyou, I had time this afternoon and took care of what was needed to be done. Take care of yourself - Cheers Gmcbjames (talk) 00:48, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

re: map in lincoln ne[edit]

Hey Hanyou23! Well this map is simply an extra to the article. Like most images, maps or even information are some kind of extra. Lincoln is not really a real major city, and tbh the map is not too interesting compared with similar ones of other cities. However the city is the capital of the state, and at least to me it doesnt look like it hurts anything in particular, like the layout etc. So far it is an interesting extra info to the article. --Joobo (talk) 08:54, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Hanyou23. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! -- There'sNoTime (to explain) 15:47, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

There'sNoTime - Thank you so very much, I promise to take it easy ^^ !~  :) Hanyou23 (talk) 07:32, 28 June 2017 (UTC)


Hi! Earlier, when I did not know about the emoticons, I used to type it this way: :) or:P. However, later on somebody used it Face-smile.svg or Face-tongue.svg this way (which I din't know of earlier), and now I make use of {{p|:)}} or {{p|:P}} (and such emoticons) a lot, so I hope it might be helpful to you (if you already knew that we could type in such visual emoticons, then my bad). Face-wink.svg Adityavagarwal (talk) 15:06, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello Adityavagarwal ^_^ ! Thank you for pointing that out ^^ ! Heh, yeah, I knew those exist :) ... but I guess I'm kind'a old fashioned to a degree and once an old dog has been trained, it's hard to teach him new tricks ;p . Those visual emojis take a little bit more typing - at least in my opinion ;o ... so I've always just kind'a stuck with the usual same old, same old ;p . Thank you so much once again for pointing those out and I hope you have a wonderful end to the week ^_^ ! Ah, maybe one day I'll pick those up - we'll see xD heheh :) . Cheers ^^ !!!~  :) Hanyou23 (talk) 07:39, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, just thought of telling you. Also, personally, I like your way of typing emoticons (with ^ symbols). ^^ It is unique. Adityavagarwal (talk) 13:11, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Adityavagarwal - Heh, thank you ^^ ! Many years of fun experimentation with emoticons :) - I think I was one of the first people to use them when they first came out, but please don't quote me on that ;p heheh ^_~ . Cheers, my friend ^_^ ~ Hanyou23 (talk) 20:30, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
