Thank you! I appreciate it. Jsayre64 (talk) 18:12, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for today's Trout Creek Mountains, "perhaps the most rural area in Oregon ... little known to outsiders and rarely visited ... fascinating"! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:23, 21 November 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)

Photo[edit]

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.

Whoops and sorry!!![edit]

Trophy.png Whoops and sorry!!!
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.

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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 14:25, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
