Little Chicken Island[edit]

Hi. re this article you just created - is there any difference between this and Chick Island, or are they the same island ? CultureDrone (talk) 14:36, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Chick Island and Little Chicken Island are two completely different islands. History Wizard (talk) 10:39, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Ahh ok - just that "Little Chicken Island" isn't mentioned in the Lake Erie article, but "Chick Island" is - I was just trying to ensure we didn't end up with two articles about the same place :-) CultureDrone (talk) 14:44, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

No problem; thanks for mentioning that Little Chicken Island wasn't on the Lake Erie article by the way. I just added it to the list of islands on that article. History Wizard (talk) 10:55, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Wood County, Ohio[edit]

What is your definition of an "unincorporated community"? What I am seeing on this list is a combination of "true" unincoporated communities (ones that were actually at one time villages) and "subdivisions". Cresceus Farms is a subdivision. Mungen is a platted community (and at one time a "hamlet"). We are going to have to agree on what we are actually listing here as unincoporated areas, otherwise, there is going to be a list of subdivisions stretching the page. Check the Wood County Recorder's website and do a search of online indices by location name to see what I mean - unincoporated communities will display a type as "VIL" for village. Your input is appreciated. Westonjoe (talk) 21:18, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

I was going by what Google maps said, but if Wood County's website said that they were unincorporated, include them. History Wizard (talk) 00:22, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Covered bridges[edit]

Hi there, I left a note on the article creator's talkpage last night and thought you might be interested. I ran a check of bridges listed on the covered bridge article and compared it to the list of bridges in Ohio on the NR. After filtering articles without "covered" in their name here are the ones I found to be missing. I hope you find this information helpful! §hep¡Talk to me! 22:40, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for compiling that list of bridges. It was very helpful. History Wizard (talk) 15:14, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

You recently removed a lot of information from Massachusetts's congressional districts, without explanation. If you're doing that to all the other states, please restore it, or explain it. Thanks. —GoldRingChip 19:36, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States House of Representatives elections in Ohio, 2016, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jim Jordan (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.

Fixing links[edit]

Hi. In case you're not already aware of it, you may want to familiarize yourself with WP:NOTBROKEN. Sometimes bypassing a redirect is worthwhile, but it also can be counterproductive. Thanks! - Eureka Lott 00:47, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
