It would be nice[edit]

if you could add a citation to your edit at Allen Tupper True. Also, if you put something, anything on your user page then your user name will appear as a blue link rather than a red one and this is considered (at least by me) to be a good thing.

Solon Borglum[edit]

It is completely irrelevant to Solon Borglum's education that his teacher appeared in a painting by another artist. Please stop putting this unsourced information into the article, or I will have to seek admin attention to this matter. BMK (talk) 01:03, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

If you think you have a valid counter-argument, please make it here on the article's talk paqe. BMK (talk) 01:09, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

The proposition is simple. The connection to someone as august as Eakins is J. Laurie Wallace. J. Laurie Wallace was far more than a simple 'former pupil of Thomas Eakins'. He was a consummate model (to Eakins), assistant instructor and important in Eakins' development of locomotion in film, carried on by Muybridge. This fleshes out the attraction to Wallace by Borglum and gives an importance to why Borglum would have sought out Wallace in a town such as Omaha. It is not a BAD thing that knowledge beyond the simple sentence structure would be gained by stating Wallace's importance. Wallace's Wikipedia page is ALL about Eakins. None of Wallace's own artwork is illustrated, which will be remedied. Also Borglum's page, considering his towering accomplishments in sculpture is extraordinarily tiny. And that will be remedied. This entry about Wallace EXPANDS the knowledge delivered about Borglum. That is good.

You have spent an inordinate amount of time on something that is trivial (your expulsion of the information), time that could and should be spent on something far more important. If you delete any of this you will be reported.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
