Midwestern United States[edit]

I've responded to your edit at the talk page Talk:Midwestern United States. I've reworded the section to avoid the point you brought up altogether. There's a more extensive discussion there. Shadowjams (talk) 06:02, 1 March 2013 (UTC)



I want you to know that I did not intend to step on your edits of Kokomo. I had been working on some revisions and when I went to sage, I saw the conflict with your posting. I tried to carefuly save all your edits when I saved mine, but it was just easier to save overtop of your paragraph that try to reconstruct my own edits. If in the process I deleted an edit of yours, it was not my intent. Feel free to put back if you like.

Thank you for using VisualEditor and sharing your ideas with the developers.

Hello, Indyguy,

The Editing team is asking for your help with VisualEditor. I am contacting you because you were one of the very first testers of VisualEditor, back in 2012 or early 2013. Please tell them what they need to change to make VisualEditor work better for you. The team has a list of top-priority problems, but they also want to hear about small problems. These problems may make editing less fun, take too much of your time, or be as annoying as a paper cut. The Editing team wants to hear about and try to fix these small things, too. 

You can share your thoughts by clicking this link. You may respond to this quick, simple, anonymous survey in your own language. If you take the survey, then you agree your responses may be used in accordance with these terms. This survey is powered by Qualtrics and their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy.

More information (including a translateable list of the questions) is posted on wiki at mw:VisualEditor/Survey 2015. If you have questions, or prefer to respond on-wiki, then please leave a message on the survey's talk page.

All-male schools[edit]

Hi! About this edit, I don't know of enough all male primary and secondary schools in the State of Indiana.

If I know of at least five I'll make a template (like Template:Boys' schools in Illinois) for that particular state. But if there's too few I just do a see also. Right now I only know of two all boys' or former all boys' schools in the entire state. WhisperToMe (talk) 19:53, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Autism cases in vaccine court:Homeland Security Act 2002, Public Law 107-296[edit]

Usually Wikipedia quotes controversies and legal actions on all links ! My edit brings out the controversy which was missing from this page and has affected India. . .

What is unreliable about these sources / links - they are fully open and legal ? . . [Unreliable fringe source?] .

It is all here and should be cited, as the controversy led to signing of a homeland security bill by President, George W. Bush! With election fevers running high and developing countries voters forming a good number ! . . .

Check new stubs[edit]

Hi User:Indyguy, please check my stubs as I add to National Register of Historic Places listings in Marion County, Indiana. I've been working on Indiana NRHP stubs for some time and could use some review as I start to work on Indianapolis. Thanks.--Pubdog (talk) 22:05, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Opinion, please[edit]

Would you mind offering an opinion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2016 August 16 in the CFD for Category:Metropolitan school districts in Indiana? Four years living in Indiana (specifically, in a school corporation) wasn't enough to help me understand the differences between school corporations, school cities, school towns, and metropolitan school districts, so it would help to have an outside opinion on whether the MSDs ought to have their own category.

See here I did not know this and I also cannot find a citation immediately. Do you recall where you got this information? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 18:04, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Having been around when Unigov was enacted, I've always known the Beech Grove, Lawrence, Southport, and Speedway are the excluded cities, and all the other municipalities are included. The Unigov article has the information, and and are a couple of links. Cumberland is unusual in that the portion of the town within Marion County is subject to Unigov as an included city/town, while the portion in Hancock County is independent of Unigov simply because it's outside the boundaries of Marion County.

Marking a non-vandal edit as vandal[edit]

Indyguy If you wished to revert the change and open discussion topic in the talk page that would have been more appropriate. The concept of historical Jesus is as old as Jesus the difference being solely one is based on provable fact and the other based on hearsay. You failed to address my summary in your own and violated the NPOV by marking my change as a vandalism. It is very likely that you are a non-Arain Cristian and my change offended you. Vandalism is a serious violation of the basic ideology in Wikipedia and is not a term that should be thrown around lightly. This will also be posted in the Talk:Arian controversy where this should have been addressed in the first place. Endercase (talk) 03:10, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

I was mistaken about marking it a vandal edit. The UI just had vandal edit in red and I freaked. I'm so sorry Shall I remove this?Endercase (talk) 03:48, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
No problem. It was an honest mistake. Happy editing. Indyguy (talk) 04:03, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Luther and Indulgences[edit]

Indyguy, let me know if you have proof that the indulgence sellers actually said this. Tetzel in particular is often accused of all sorts of corruptions, but scholars exonerate him on most charges. Here's an excerpt from an old Catholic Encyclopedia article found online at

For a critical scholarly study which shows [Tetzel] in a proper perspective, he had to wait the researches of our own time, mainly at the hands of Dr. Nicholas Paulus, who is closely followed in this article. In the first place, his teaching regarding the indulgences for the living was correct. The charge that the forgiveness of sins was sold for money regardless of contrition or that absolution for sins to be committed in the future could be purchased is baseless. An indulgence, he writes, can be applied only "to the pains of sin which are confessed and for which there is contrition". "No one", he furthermore adds, "secures an indulgence unless he have true contrition". The confessional letters (confessionalia) could of course be obtained for a mere pecuniary consideration without demanding contrition. But such document did not secure an indulgence. It was simply a permit to select a proper confessor, who only after a contrite confession would absolve from sin and reserved cases, and who possessed at the same time facilities to impart the plenary indulgence (Paulus, "Johann Tetzel", 103). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amosjohnlong (talkcontribs) 04:11, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Why my edit were always reverted?[edit]

When I added lines to RTD Denver to two different services (2 commuter rails and 7 light rails) my edit were reverted by SJ Morg because there were no citation. When I deleted all of other lines that don't have citation, my edit were reverted by you. I'm confused. (talk) 15:45, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

See the response I left for you on my talk page earlier. – SJ Morg (talk) 15:51, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Indianapolis International Airport Police Department, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Morgan County (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.
