The Meeting House[edit]

Please forgive me if I'm doing this the wrong way as I'm not a frequent Wikipedia editor. I've contributed to the article on the Meeting House in the past and would like to add sources/references. I'm unsure of how to proceed. The text is not based on other texts but on the audio archive of sermons they provide on their website. They've got about seven years worth of sermons and I've listened to just about all of them and recognize all the reoccurring themes in their teaching. How would you recommend I do this in a correct manner? Cheers, JoeGus74 (talk) 13:15, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of international ice hockey competitions featuring NHL players[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article List of international ice hockey competitions featuring NHL players, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Low quality, biased (NHL focus instead of professional players), almost all sections suggested to be merged with their main articles, information available elsewhere

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Re: Universities vs. Colleges[edit]

They were merged into regions because of a few discussions, one of which is at the article's FLC at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of universities in the Canadian Prairies/archive1. Gary King (talk) 21:26, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

List of colleges in Alberta[edit]

Hi Kevlar,

My primary motivation for moving the list to its current location was a desire for consistency. There is a list of colleges in Canada and a list of universities in Canada, but no "list of colleges and universities in Canada". The reason that no such list exists is that the two components already have their own lists. There is no need to combine them so that we have a combination list as well; it would necessarily be redundant. As the two are not combined at the national level, it does not seem to make sense to do so at the provincial level either. The list of colleges in Alberta remains nicely complete while the few universities in the province are listed in the Alberta section of the list of universities in Canada (to which list of universities in Alberta redirects). If I have been unsuccessful in convincing you of the merits of maintaining separation between lists of colleges and lists of universities in Canada, feel free to make a move suggestion on Wikipedia:Requested moves.

Happy editing,

Social welfare in Canada[edit]

Hi Kevlar,

The move was intended to align the title with those of other articles pertaining to social welfare in a particular country, such as Social welfare in Japan and Social welfare in New Zealand. Do you have any reliable sources which state that the term "social welfare" is defined differently in Canadian English than in other varieties of English?

Do you have any more Ukrainian place names from Westlock or Barrhead County that you would like to add? Jwkozak91 (talk) 06:21, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
A couple of topics that I would like to clear with you:
There used to be a hamlet/village called "Freedom" on the west side of the Pembina River south of Highway 18. I have a strong feeling that it was settled by Ukrainians and it might have been originally named "Volya" or "Svoboda" or a Polonized spelling variation of those two names. Thoughts?
According to Google Maps, "Halych" was actually west of Tawatinaw, closer to Pibroch, and had an Anglicized spelling - "Halach". However, I have first-hand knowledge that "Google Maps" does screw up: the village that my mom grew up in - Archerwill, Saskatchewan - is pinpointed some 100 km south of where it should be (!), at the southern end of a serious dog-leg in Highway 35. Thoughts?
Thanks for your time and opinion -- Jwkozak91 (talk) 18:22, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Featured topics[edit]

To the extent that I have a plan, it's to get Premiers of Alberta to featured topic status (a project in which I am adhering rigorously to WP:DEADLINE). Most of the other stuff I've been doing along the way has been to facilitate the writing of the Premier biographies; it's a lot easier to write Brownlee's, for example, when John Brownlee sex scandal's not a redlink. I'm sort of gearing up for Aberhart, which is why Bankers' Toadies, Backbenchers' Revolt, and Accurate News and Information Act all showed up recently. One way or another, I need to do Aberhart, so I'll call that my next big project, and then I'll figure out if I want to continue on with Manning or start branching out and hitting those other Social Credit topics (depending on the focus of the topic, it might be necessary to bluelink Calgary Prophetic Bible Institute). If you want to do work on them, though, I'd be pleased to provide some light support; I've accumulated what I call, without any proof, New Brunswick's finest privately held library about Alberta's political history. Anyway, thanks for the kind words. Steve Smith (talk) 23:53, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Kevlar67, I saw your edit and edit summary on List of communities in Alberta regarding Drumheller. Although most amalgamations involving urban and rural municipalities in Alberta end up actually being dissolutions where the urban municipality reverts its current status to that of a hamlet, this was not the case for Drumheller (see Location and History Profile – Town of Drumheller). At the time of the amalgamation, the Municipal District of Badlands No. 7 was the smallest M.D. in Alberta with numerous small unincorporated communities within. A decision was made (not sure if by the two councils of the time or Municipal Affairs) that it was more appropriate for the amalgamated municipality to be an urban municipality as opposed to a rural municipality. You might say it was a dissolution with a reverse result where the M.D. dissolved to become part of Drumheller, instead of Drumheller becoming a hamlet under the jurisdiction of the M.D. This happened at least once previously in 1996 when Crowsnest Pass (a town at the time) amalgamated with its surrounding I.D. No. 6 (see Location and History Profile – Municipality of Crowsnest Pass). Given Drumheller's quasi-urban/quasi-rural nature however, I would not be surprised if Drumheller further follows in Crowsnest Pass' footsteps by changing its status from that of a town to a specialized municipality in the future. Cheers, --Hwy43 (talk) 09:04, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Template:Subdivisions of Alberta[edit]

Hi Kevalr67, I just saw your edit to include IDs. How about changing the title of the group from "Counties, Municipal Districts, Specialized Municipalities, and Improvement Districts" to "Rural Municipalities and Specialized Municipalities"? As you can see from here, "Rural Municipalities" is an all-inclusive grouping of Municipal Districts (a.k.a Counties), Improvement Districts, and Special Areas, all of which are listed under this group. This grouping is consistent with the grouping used by Alberta Municipal Affairs (AMA), which has authority over the creation of municialities in Alberta. See this link where AMA refers to Alberta having 74 rural municipalities (64 MDs + 7 IDs + 3 Special Areas). This would make the group title less verbose, and would bring it into consistency with the List of communities in Alberta article and with AMA. What do you think? I just attempted editing it myself, but it didn't work out. Not sure if I have to edit templates slightly different than articles or not. Cheers, --Hwy43 (talk) 04:42, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Fixed it. Because it uses an if statement a pipe is needed after the title to close the if. 117Avenue (talk) 05:44, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

naming conventions[edit]

hi there,

well I am not aware of any convention existing for embassies. Thanks for pointing out that one link WP:FOR, however it says "suggest", not a binding guideline. Either way, the format {type of mission} of {country} in {name of city} does not really follow current naming convention on Wiki for multiple institutions in different places. Normally a comma or a bracket is used for the place. On top of that for example the name "Embassy of the United Kingdom in Washington" is original research, they are universally known as "British Embassy" with place after a comma or in a bracket. Gryffindor (talk) 01:17, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

If it is blatantly wrong, would you discuss it first, for example "British Embassy"? And are you sure that the articles are only about the buildings? I think it is a mixture of both. Gryffindor (talk) 00:48, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Hi. If it is a building, it should follow the format "Name, place" or "Name (place)". This move here however [1] I can actually agree with, since it describes the institution, and the name you have chosen would be more correct to describe it. Gryffindor (talk) 16:53, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
I think for buildings we should try to keep the title as brief as possible, so "Canadian Embassy, Tokyo" for the building. If the building has a specific name, such as those High Commissions in London, they can obviously keep that as well. I am not very particular if we use a comma or do it in brackets, as long as it's consistent. I am under the impression however, that most disambig. buildings here on Wiki use a comma, but am open for suggestions. The format you chose for "High Commission of Canada to the United Kingdom" looks good, it would be good if we also kept it consistent with others, such as in Japan. Gryffindor (talk) 17:03, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
ps: What should we do with multiple "houses" in different locations? There is one Canada House in London, another in Berlin. Any other ones as well? Because maybe the one in London should be moved as well in order to disambiguate? Gryffindor (talk) 17:11, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Canada House in London has been called that since 1926 and is Canada's oldest diplomatic misssion, Canada House in Berlin has only been around since 2005. There is no need to add a disambig tag to the London one, but we may need to create Canada House. Canada House is also the name of an art gallery in Banff, Alberta and the unofficial name of federal government's temporary exhibit during most international events (viz Display pavillions during the 2010 Winter Olympics). I still think the London building is the primary usage of the term, however. See House (disambiguation), and redirects Australia House, New Zealand House for comparison. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 17:28, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

House (disambiguation)[edit]

I assume you are referring to this edit I made, sorry it's been a little while and I'd forgotten about it. I do not think that the former content is appropriate for a disambiguation page, per Wikipedia:Disambiguation, disambiguation pages should contain links which could reasonably be refereed to by the title of the page. They should not contain partial title matches - no one looking for Chatham House would type "House" into the search bar. Additionally the guideline states that disambiguation pages should not contain references - this can only be achievable when they do not contain extended information like the information I removed form House (disambiguation) - it's just not what disambiguation pages are for. I'm not really sure where it would currently be appropriate to present the information but if there was a separate article on "Named houses" then it would probably be appropriate to link to it from House (disambiguation). Obviously if you disagree with my assessment you are free to revert my edit or to open a discussion to gauge community consensus. Regards, Guest9999 (talk) 11:01, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry just to add, because Wikipedia is not a dictionary it is not essential that we give every definition of every word that is used in the encyclopaedia, even as an article title. Maybe a link to the wiktionary page on "House" would suffice in this instance. See the box at the top right of Havoc for an example. Regards, Guest9999 (talk) 11:05, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Molson Brewery, Edmonton[edit]

I've just noticed that we appear to have different views on how best to categorise the Molson Brewery, Edmonton article. The article appears to be about a company that ran a brewery from 1913 until 2007, and is now closed. As such it is a defunct brewery company, and it seems appropriate to categorise it as a Defunct brewery company. As the building is in Edmonton it seems appropriate to categorise it as one of the Buildings and structures in Edmonton. I am unclear what advantage is gained by categorising it as Breweries (buildings) - when it is no longer a brewery, and the category itself is not clear? The article is about a building in Edmonton and a defunct brewery company, and as such is appropriately categorised. We have an existing category system for breweries that deals well with both existing and closed breweries - it starts at Category:Beer. There is also a very good cat structure for buildings which starts at Category:Buildings and structures. There is an existing junction within these cat structures where breweries as functional buildings meet from Category:Buildings and structures by typeCategory:Industrial buildingsCategory:Manufacturing plantsCategory:Manufacturing plants in the United KingdomCategory:Beer and breweries in the United Kingdom - and then for closed companies: Category:Defunct brewery companies of the United Kingdom; from Category:BeerCategory:Beer and breweries by regionCategory:Beer and breweries in EuropeCategory:Beer and breweries in the United Kingdom - and then for closed companies: Category:Defunct brewery companies of the United Kingdom. This seems to work well enough. However, it might be worth us having a discussion to see if you feel that this system could be improved. SilkTork *YES! 11:57, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

My concern with categorizing this as a "company" is that this same brewery (building) was owned by several breweries (companies) over it's 90-odd year existence. For the majority of its lifespan it was owned by Montreal-based Molson, Canada's largest brewer, and produced major commercial beers. It certainly was not an independent company, and hadn't been for many decades. This article deals primarily with the history of the facility, in all phases of its life. It is not primarily about the former company or companies that owned it in the distant past. Therefore I think calling it a company is inappropriate. But you may disagree, and I'd be happy to hear your side of it. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 19:34, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
I think you identify a problem with the wording of the Defunct brewery cat - it does say "brewery company". The main brewery cats ("Beer and breweries by region") do not specify companies, and are more flexible as a result. However, the nature of breweries (as with most companies) is that they do change hands (and names, and sometimes location) - but we still categorise them as a business entity rather than as a building. The Molson Brewery, Edmonton article, as written, is about a business entity. The actual brewery building - an asset of that business entity - is mentioned in article, though a "a fur trade fort called Molson House" which stands in front of the brewery building is also mentioned. I'm not clear how much items which are mentioned in articles should be categorised. SilkTork *YES! 11:09, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

We may be talking past each other, let me start again. I think should have distinct categories called Category:Brewing companies (or Category:Beer companies or similar) and a seperate Category:Breweries (buildings). Then this confustion would go away. It would be simple to decide where an article goes. Molson is a company. The Molson brewery in Edmonton is a building. Anhauser-Busch is a company. The Anhauser-Busch brewery in St. Louis is a building. I get the impresssion Vegaswikian would also support this scheme. If you agree we should jointly propose it to WP:BEER, so that we can get on with writing more articles about the breweries we love. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 08:05, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't think we are talking past each other. I think we talking to each other and are working together to find an appropriate way of categorising articles.
Which articles do you feel would go in Category:Breweries (buildings)? I'll list those breweries whose name starts with A, from the UK, Belgium and Germany, and those from the American states starting with A. Which ones do you feel would fit into Category:Breweries (buildings)?
Olde Towne Brewing Company, Alaskan Brewing Company, Midnight Sun Brewing Company, Silver Gulch Brewing & Bottling Company, Four Peaks Brewery, Rio Salado Brewing Company, Diamond Bear Brewing Company, Abbey Ales Brewery, Adnams Brewery, Andwells Brewery, Arkell's Brewery, Aston Manor Brewery, Augustiner Bräu, Ayinger Brewery, Achel Brewery, Brasserie d'Achouffe, Alken-Maes and Picobrouwerij Alvinne.
The Adnams brewery building - Sole Bay - is an attractive building, and it may be possible to cull together [enough comments about the building itself to create a worthwhile section within the Adnams Brewery article.
The Arkell's Brewery building is Grade II listed, and this could be appropriately placed in Category:Listed brewery buildings.
The Augustiner Bräu building is listed, so could be appropriately placed in Category:Listed brewery buildings.
Ayinger Brewery have a new building with modern brewing equipment that would be worth mentioning in the article, but the building is not listed, or particularly notable.
I see two breweries having buildings significant enough to be categorised, and would support the creation of a cat for that purpose, with a name that clarified what the cat was for, such as Category:Listed brewery buildings (and would be interested to hear your views on that name, or alternative suggestions). My main problem with Category:Breweries (buildings) is that the name doesn't signify what articles should be placed in that cat. SilkTork *YES! 09:53, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

IR category usage issue[edit]

Please note my reversal of your category change on Chiyakmesh and the edit comment/reason why. I've put the IR category on Cheakamus Indian Reserve No. 11 which is a redirect to Chiyakmesh, which is a village on a reserve and which predates that reserve by centuries. The IR category's name I've found disturbing and POv since first seeing it but came to loggerheads with Bearcat over changing it to Category:Indian Reserves et al. as "First Nations reserve" is a POV usage and not in common usage; and there's a big distinction in native culture between the system that was imposed on them and their pre-existing society/ as a general practice when situations like this arise I put the IR category on the IR redirect as youl'l note by looking at the category's contents (another example would be Slosh Indian Reserve No. 1 which, if not already created, should redirect to Shalalth (Ts'alalh).Skookum1 (talk) 02:56, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Just to note that many items in that category currently should not be for the same reason as with Chiyakmesh....there should be Category:Aboriginal communities in British Columbia for items like Gitwinksihlkw, which is on a reserve of a different name/spelling snd shouldn't be in the reserves category, and many others....there are also sometimes more than one community on teh same reserve (as with Slosh IR No. 1) and at other times there are places ilke Xwayxway which are not on reserve at all, and never was (Lumberman's Arch, Stanley Park is its location, and prior to it being Stanley Park it was Military Reserve since 1859, prior to that it was one of the principal Skwxwu7esh villages - the last residents other than one or two, who were allowed to live in nearby houses after the great shell middens surrounding the ceremonial village were quarried and crushed to pave the Stanley Park Ring Road (Park Drive) today in the 1890s - for bicycles, not cars, interestingly...). There are many abandoned villages that were never on reserve, and should not be labelled as being a reserve even if they are one, just like teh still-inhabited ones...and there are many reserves which were never inhabited, except seasonally...and some not even then, which were only hunting camps/bases as with Pavilion Indian Reserve No. 1A, which isn't in Pavilion nor attached to Pavilion Indian Reserve No. 1 (physically, that is). The use of the term "reserve" to mean both land and community is a fuzziness east of the Rockies, maybe, but it has to be specfici in the BC content because of various distinctions of this kind - and sensitivities also....Skookum1 (talk) 03:06, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Hm I picked up a somewhat bad example because that's a Nisga'a community and no longer reserve becaues of the recent treaty; as with Sechelt Indian Government Districts, whih were but are no longer reserves, there's a need for separate category or categories...Note the old spelling of Gitwinkshihlkw:

Kitwilluchsilt (Canyon City) Indian Reserve 7 identified in the 1987 Schedule published by Department of Indian & Northern Affairs. Name changed to Gitwinksihlkw Indian Reserve 7, 19 September 1988. Gitwinksihlkw Band. Extinguished per Nisga'a Treaty, Appendix A-4, effective 11 May 2000.

although a BCGNIS entry for a not official name for Gitwinkshihlkw Indian Reserve No. 7 does exist, it was not a legal name = Kitwilluchsilt (Canyon City) Indian Reserve No. 7 was and I'll make both of those as redirects, with the IR category on the latter because it's the legal name and the usual BC construction (the "name+number" is StatsCan's terminology, not INAC's (which omits the "No.") nor the usual BC English usage (which includes teh "No.").Skookum1 (talk) 03:21, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Speedy delete G5[edit]

Please ask the deleter. Kittybrewster 08:22, 18 October 2010 (UTC)


This discussion has been closed as you suggested, but I have no idea how to split the category along the lines you recommend. Would you be so kind as to do so, and then let me know so I can delete the category?--Mike Selinker (talk) 14:23, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Category:American Quaker clergy[edit]

You had mentioned opposing the upmerge of American Quaker clergy because of Category:Quaker clergy by nationality. Quaker clergy by nationality has only one subcategory (with only two pages) and no pages of its own, so it probably should be eliminated as well Purplebackpack89 15:55, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Siksika/Blackfoot language[edit]

I somewhat addressed the Blackfoot language issue. The ISO 639-3 name for Blackfoot is Siksika and its language code is bla. I have created the {{ISO 639 name bla}}, {{lang-bla}} and {{Bla icon}} templates for bla, to display the name Siksika, so errors no loger show at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. The Infobox Historic Site template has also been modifed to permit ISO 639-1, ISO 639-2 or ISO 639-3 language codes as an alternative to the name of the language.--Labattblueboy (talk) 16:35, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
