Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Cptnono -- Cptnono (talk) 05:42, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Congratulations. This is a truly interesting article. I began thinking FAC as I read it, then saw that the reviewer was thinking that too. Finetooth (talk) 18:44, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Much of the credit goes to Orygun, who actually researched and wrote the article. The topic sure does fascinate me too. I will certainly let you know when I'm ready for a peer review or FAC. Jsayre64 (talk) 06:29, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I'd be glad to help when the time comes. I love those lonely high-desert places in the Basin and Range. Finetooth (talk) 21:42, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I'd be glad to review it and send you my comments as soon as a large group of visitors leaves for home at the end of the weekend. Finetooth (talk) 21:35, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I posted my initial thoughts to the article's talk page just now. Holler if you'd like me to do more research via JSTOR or elsewhere. Finetooth (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the High Country News note. I would not have known about this if you hadn't told me. The river was unusually high that day, and the sky was perfect, not all blue and not all gray. I've never floated the John Day, but my next-door neighbor has taken many trips on the stretches between Service Creek, Clarno, and take-out places below that.

I was checking the caldera page and have accidentally reverted your work of August 2015. I do apologise, it was caused by my cursor jumping as a train I was on moved. I really am sorry, it was not an act of vandalism. The Geologist The Geologist (talk) 14:04, 11 August 2015 (UTC)


I don't think you actually reverted any of my edits. Jsayre64 (talk) 18:02, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Utica, New York, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Clinton, New York (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.

Shared DYK credit?[edit]

Thanks for nominating Madison Street Bridge for DYK. Would you consider adding me as a co-creater/expander to the nomination page, considering the extensive expansion I've made? Although Another Believer created the article (and is rightly credited for that) and did all of the setting up of the page's overall organization, for DYK it's not unusual to list more than one person as the creator/expander (as distinct from the nominator – you, in this case), when more than one person was a major contributor at the start. In case you were not aware of that, some examples where I was named in this way in the past (and I did not request it) include Trolleybuses in Philadelphia, Blauer Enzian, and Electro Scientific Industries (before DYK noms had templates), all cases where I was not technically the article's creator, and also was not its 5x expander nor the DYK nominator, but was a major contributor in the article's first days after creation. I agree that it's a pity the Madison Street Bridge disaster was not nominated for DYK when the 7-day window for that was open, but the QPQ review requirement discourages some editors from nominating articles, if they don't have time for the review and the follow-up communication. And just how much time it might take is unpredictable. I didn't have time for that at the time (and had no control over the timing, since it was not my article), and hoped someone else would nominate it – and I did a fair amount of MoS cleanup to it when it was new, with that in mind – but no one did. I appreciate your taking time to nominate the bridge article and do the QPQ review of another nomination. – SJ Morg (talk) 09:30, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Sure, I will add you as co-creator. Jsayre64 (talk) 01:56, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! – SJ Morg (talk) 07:03, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
