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.
A barnstar for you!

|Dear IndyGuy - I would like to edit a page you are working on - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indiana_World_War_Memorial_Figures - this is for a service learning project on civic engagement. Please let me know if you have any issues. I have contacted administration for the WWII Memorial and they have granted access and permission for pictures. I look forward to hearing from you.

Book of Concord page
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.
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.
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
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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eli_Lilly_and_Company . https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Eli_Lilly_and_Company&oldid=707937484 .
What is unreliable about these sources / links - they are fully open and legal ? https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2002/12/vacc-d10.html .
www.naturalnews.com/011764_thimerosal_mercury.html [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
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)
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.

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open!
- 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 https://www.cgr.org/consensuscny/docs/CaseStudies_ec-unigov514.pdf and http://www.lwvindy.org/files/unigovhandbookweb_2011.pdf 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
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)
Luther and Indulgences
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 http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14539a.htm:
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 (talk • contribs) 04:11, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
Why my edit were always reverted?
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. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:45, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
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. 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.
Earth should always be capitalized
It's what we walk on. Whether we are referring planet Earth, the Earth that plants grow from, Earthenware creations, Earthquakes, Earthworms, etc, it deserves the trait of being capitalized. We capitalize Internet, Fahrenheit, all kinds of other inventions. It's very petty to revert capitalization of Earth in any of its forms. Donutcity (talk) 15:42, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Editing of the Church of the Lutheran Confessions page
You recently re-added some references I had removed on the "Church of the Lutheran Confession" (CLC) site, indicating that the references I had removed appeared to be reliable. In our opinion these references are not reliable - these references point to another organization's website which reflects THAT organization's understanding and opinions concerning the issues between our organizations - not our opinions. Since this Wikipedia page represents The Church of the Lutheran Confession's history and beliefs, it should accurately indicate our opinions and beliefs - not our opinions and beliefs as presented by another organization. I am responding officially as the CLC Webmaster. Please email me if you have any questions. Thanks! Glenn Oster (goster@CLClutheran.com). Glenn (talk) 04:16, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Is there any place that Wikipedia rules out enlarging the name of a school on top of he infobox, especially if this doesn't require another line? Also, must the address of a school be spread out over more rather than fewer lines: some would regard the brevity more elegant. Jzsj (talk) 10:02, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
- @Jzsj: Although there are very few things that the Wikipedia absolutely rules out, one of the concerns is to maintain a consistency from article to article. That's one of the things that infoboxes help to do. So the question becomes, why should this particular school's infobox look different from those of the other thousands of schools. As far as the size of the name is concerned, you say that making it larger does not require another line. Are you sure that's the case on every device and screen size currently in use and that might be used ten years from now? As far as the address is concerned, often an infobox produces microcode used by programs. I don't know if the address elements are affected in that way, but even if they aren't currently, they might be in the future if someone modifies the infobox coding. All in all, it's just better to use the standard setup rather than trying to be fancy in isolated cases. Indyguy (talk) 14:13, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
- I see your perspective but I've also found a good deal of tolerance for different points of view, and not reverting others' work unless for obvious reasons. My changing the address format is because I find that some seem to follow the infobox possibilities slavishly, perhaps without seeing the other possibilities of making a more elegant and concise address section. I don't see this as fancy in isolated cases but as preferable in most cases, especially where there's little reason to fill out both the county and the zip code lines. As far as some future changes in codes, I've noted that Wiki tries to avoid such changes precisely not to upset the thousands of articles that are constructed according to the present conventions.
- As to the title, I find that if "110" doesn't require an extra line, neither will "100" or "125" which are the usual viewing sizes that people might use. There really is no great consistency in how schools choose to use the many options in infoboxes, so enlarging the name to fill the line doesn't seem to me to be out of order; after all, the titles on the top of infoboxes are quite diverse across the whole range of infoboxes, so no one style is being imposed. Respectfully submitted, Jzsj (talk) 23:48, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Wikipedia keeps reverting my edits on a wiki page
Why is my update on a wiki page keep reverting, it says I am copy and pasting information from a website, however this is information the organization has authorized me to publish. Does Wikipedia need to get in contact with the organization so they can authorize me to publish this information from their website?
- If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor, please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page, and seek consensus with them. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
- If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.
Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continual disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you.
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Dixie Highway, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Carl Fischer (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
Camp Morton source
I do have a source it’s in a book called captured it’s a true story about a boy in the civil war Named Johnny Ables if you don’t believe me go check out that book and the author has spent years researching RELIABLE SOURCES in order to find out its true Jh3324 (talk) 12:29, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
- @Jh3324: The point I was making is that you need to include, in <ref>...</ref> tags, the particulars of the source, just like you would if you were writing a term paper in school. In other words, it's good that you found the information in a reliable source, but you also need to let whoever is reading the article know the source for the information. The Wikipedia:Citing sources article has instructions on entering references in an article. Indyguy (talk) 14:54, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Metropolitan New York Synod, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lutheran Theological Seminary (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
I'm afraid I don't understand your most recent edit to the WELS page. Why does the WELS category require a vertical bar and a space at the end, but only on this page? (It says "**Category:Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod| ]]".) Bnng (talk) 02:05, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
- @Bnng: It causes the article to appear as the first article in the category. Usually it is used for the article whose name is that same as the category. Indyguy (talk) 02:19, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
Reverted edits on Corydon, Indiana
Hello, you have twice reverted my edits on Corydon, Indiana. I do not intend to edit war with you, but I want to let you know I disagree with your edit summaries. The context of neither is clear without ambiguity. Seeing that I wrote the original sentences.... it is my own disambiguity I am correcting. :) —Charles Edward (Talk | Contribs) 16:59, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
- @Charles Edward: - I didn't realize I had reverted the same editor twice. I think your most recent edit on Corydon is good. Maybe it would be even better just to just say "Corydon was the site of the Battle of Corydon, the only official pitched battle waged in Indiana during the American Civil War." and avoid having to mention "war" twice in the same sentence.

Thanks for the edits on the Champ Car article. My intention wass to attract some attention and set out a new outline, what was there was just disjointed and strangely focused (I think Eddie Cheever was mentioned twice?!) I've got a few sources lined up and hope to add them in the next few days, if you'd like to collaborate, let me know. :-). Knoper (talk) 19:05, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
- @Knoper: I did some copy editing because having lived in Indianapolis for many years, I know a lot of general hstory of the 500. I don't have any sources myself, so I won't be able to add anything in that respect. From what I remember reading in the newspapers, the facts in the article seem to be accurate. Thanks for working on the article. Indyguy (talk) 19:17, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
