Garfield County, Utah[edit]

There is a small problem at Garfield County, Utah#Geography because three converts have no value (diff). I was planning to fix it but am too lazy at the moment so am hoping you will find the missing values. Johnuniq (talk) 07:12, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Talk:Kalinga (province)[edit]

Hello Kennethaw88. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Talk:Kalinga (province), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The talk page must match the article. Kalinga isn't subject to a speedy move. . Thank you. GedUK  13:17, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Um, as you left it, the talk page didn't match the article. I tried to carry out the move request here (diff), but I didn't realize that the target's talk page had a history, so Talk:Kalinga was separated from the article. I understand if that doesn't actually qualify for G6, but I didn't know how else to move the talk page. I have now merged the talk page contents into the new talk page (I hope I preserved attribution correctly). If that is also not correct, please advise how to fix things like this in the future. kennethaw88talk 23:10, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Pilot, North Carolina[edit]

I just discovered this page. I don't know whether it should even exist. I can't find evidence of the existence of Pilot in Davidson County in the way I have in the past. I'm at home and have slow Internet, and don't care to go to unfamiliar web sites anyway, so I'm not sure how to prove this place even exists.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 20:24, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

I found the other place by searching for pilot at the GNIS database, which has this listing in Davidson County. It's listed as a "Populated Place", and I don't know enough about the GNIS to know if that just means unincorporated community, or ghost town, or something else. It's my understanding that a listing there is enough to prove existence, although I don't really work in creating US place articles, so I don't really know that much. kennethaw88talk 00:22, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Looking more into it, if I plug in the GNIS coordinates in Google Maps, I can see a Pilot Fire Department and Pilot Elementary School, although they are within the city of Thomasville. kennethaw88talk 00:32, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot about you. I usually look at my contributions to see if any don't have "current" beside them but I somehow overlooked you. Thanks.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 00:08, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Michigan NR lists[edit]

It's an error that you observed and I didn't. Michigan generally having a rather poor collection of NR-list headers and footers, I replaced several of them with better editions from other states, tweaking everything as applicable to preserve good and relevant elements: no reason to remove the link to the list of state historic sites, and the intro should not say "Jackson County, Indiana", of course. However, I didn't notice that there was a {{National Register of Historic Places in Michigan}}, let alone that it was in use here; I wouldn't have removed it had I noticed. The {{National Register of Historic Places}} template wasn't newly added (it was there already); the new template is actually {{Jackson County, Michigan}}, because most pages with this style of header have footers that include the county template. Nyttend (talk) 02:11, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

I'd say redirect, after merging whatever content is useful and non-redundant. I hesitate to use the michmarkers website; it's not some official state website or other solid source. Nyttend (talk) 02:07, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Wrong addresses[edit]

Just checked my watchlist, and discovered that you'd spotted the erroneous address for the Hebron, Nebraska post office, listed at National Register of Historic Places listings in Nebraska. Good eye!

Could I suggest that when you catch such errors in the future, you add a citation to show how you found the correct address? I've done so for the Hebron PO, discovering that the bad address was faithfully transcribed from the nominating form (so the typo was there, and not the fault of a WP editor).

Also, it'd be a good idea to add a note to Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/NRIS information issues. This will, we hope, one day lead to some of the many errors in the NRIS being fixed. (It's also useful to document these errors in light of some editors' reliance on NRIS as a source.) I've done that for the Hebron PO already, shamelessly taking credit for your error-catching eye.

Glad that you caught the Hebron issue. I should've caught and corrected that one when I photographed the building in 2010. As my excuse, I'll plead that it was early in my WP career. Ammodramus (talk) 22:46, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Ok, I'll be sure to add a citation for similar fixes. Indeed, I found this one through the USPS website, because I've been checking to see which buildings belong in the former post offices categories on commons. As for the NRIS error page, I can't quite promise I'll update that as well. I've already corrected lots of small errors and updated info before I even knew about the error page. For me, it doesn't really seem worth it because of the sloppy way the NRIS is maintained. There are just too many small errors, many of which are just simple typos that most people can figure out. kennethaw88talk 01:46, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Bad NRIS addresses are particularly painful to me, because when I'm on the road and quickly compile a list of places to photograph, I don't usually have time to check out all the nom forms and see if there're inconsistencies. I'm going to have to make a trip back to Beresford, South Dakota, because some chump at NPS changed "309" into "304", causing me to shoot the wrong house while standing with my back to the correct one.
That said, we can't blame some feckless GS-3 at NPS for the error in the Hebron post office's address: it was the fault of whomever typed up the nom form, and the transcriber accurately transcribed the error. Ammodramus (talk) 02:28, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Move review for I Love NY (2015 film)[edit]

An editor has asked for a Move review of I Love NY (2015 film). Because you closed the move discussion for this page, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the move review. Neel.arunabh (talk) 01:50, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Improving chart at Legality of cannabis by U.S. jurisdiction[edit]

This article is the most-viewed page for cannabis issues in the US (~1,500 views/day). I think we can streamline it to make it less clunky and more intuitive for readers, especially now that we have state-specific articles for all US states.

Parkway West hs[edit]

I don't understand your recent page move on the above school. There is only one other school in the entire country named Parkway (none named Parkway West) and it is in Philly. However, it appears neither the school district nor NCES uses the district's name as part of the school's name. So, if the school actually is named Parkway West, the title needs no disambiguation. However, indications are that its name is simply West High School, which would require city, state disambiguation. Am I missing something? John from Idegon (talk) 06:41, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Are you asking if the Missouri school uses the full title "Parkway West"? Because I have no idea; I just moved the existing title to disambiguate from the Parkway West in Philadelphia, which does use the full title. If the Missouri school is just West High School, then yes, it should have its title changed. I haven't actually checked what its name is. kennethaw88talk 06:46, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
From the Missouri School's website, it looks like they use both "Parkway West Longhorns" and "West High". From very brief googling, it seems common usage is split. I don't know which title it should use on Wikipedia. The Philadelphia website definitely uses the full "Parkway West High School". Also there is definitely at least two schools that use Parkway, because there is Parkway Center City HS in Philadelphia. kennethaw88talk 06:59, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
It's late and your absolutely correct about the Philly schools. So assuming the name is correct at Parkway West High School, the correct article title should be Parkway West High School (Missouri). We only use city, state DAB when there are multiple schools of the same name in the same state. John from Idegon (talk) 07:09, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
It doesn't really matter to me how it's disambiguated, so by all means move it again. I'm just used to using the city and state, since it is fairly common for existing articles, even if they are over-precise. (See for example, West High School, which demonstrates a lack of consistent disambiguation. I'm not blaming anyone or demanding they get fixed, but that's the general trend I see: there isn't a lot of consistency). kennethaw88talk 17:48, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Old Hidalgo School[edit]

Good catch on the Old Hidalgo School picture. I may have taken a picture of the correct building as well, but I'll have to check through my archives. Otherwise next time I'm over there I'll swing through there. Thanks! 25or6to4 (talk) 19:24, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
