Battle of Machias[edit]

Your coordinates for the Battle of Machias put the battle on dry land. And they were overprecise. How did you come up with those exacting coordinates? Abductive (reasoning) 00:34, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

The coordinates were probably for Machias itself, rather than the actual battle site, which isn't really known beyond general geographic descriptions. The overprecision would be the result of laziness; the coordinates were probably copied from Google Maps, which has six digit precision. Magic♪piano 01:13, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Please round all coordinates to only d.dddd° or d°m's" precision, and check all coordinates directly against an internet mapping service once they are in an article. Abductive (reasoning) 04:29, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Mount Tenjo Fortifications[edit]

Hi, maybe you could address a small nagging question for me about Mount Tenjo Fortifications in Guam, an article which you created but maybe got interrupted or went away from without finishing completely. I visited the article and added the NRHP document as a reference, but am not 100% sure that was your source or your only source when you created it. Some or maybe all of the article's content is supported by stuff in the NRHP document, but I was left wondering whether you knew about the place independently or were using a different source, somehow because how you wrote it. Could be all good, that you did use the NRHP doc and reworded it completely into your own words. But maybe you had a different source which you could add, and I would appreciate if you could take a quick look at it. Thanks in advance. --Doncram (talk) 20:21, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

@Doncram: I used the NRHP nomination. Magic♪piano 14:49, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Kenmore wiki page[edit]

Hi there!

I am the current owner of the house Kenmore, in Richmond, MA. THe wikipedia page you've created has been a wonderful resource for us, and for many curious people. Since the date of the photo posted, we've executed a massive restoration of the house, and are beginning on the property itself. We would very much like to provide you with an updated photo of the front of the house... or multiple images, to enhance this page.

I can be reached at sec@scottedwardcole.com

Thank you so much, Scott 24.194.88.7 (talk) 19:09, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Seaside Village Historic District[edit]

Could you remove your photo from the Seaside Village Historic District? We are celebrating our Centennial this month and are putting up some historic photos from Harvard’s Historic Collection. Thank you.

Unless you have a specific need for technical assistance (i.e. you don't know how to do something), feel free to edit the article yourself. It's not my image. Magic♪piano 12:04, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

It states that it was uploaded by Magicpiano, which is why I contacted you. I tried to remove it, but Wikipedia would not let me do it.

I may have uploaded the image, but I do not control its use. If you want to remove it from Seaside Village Historic District, you can do so. There's not much point in removing it from Commons. Magic♪piano 21:27, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Dr. Mary B. Moody House[edit]

Hey thanks for creating the above article, I'm working on a bio of the woman herself. In looking for sources, I noticed the NRHP Ref # in the infobox (i.e. 83003576) is not correct. It leads to the info for the John Cook House instead. I tried searching the NPS database and trolling around on NPS.GOV but I can't find the right number. Any ideas? --Krelnik (talk) 01:24, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

I've corrected the refnum; it was right in the New Haven NRHP list. It's a relatively recent listing though, so the nomination (which will probably have a decent bio) won't be online. You might be able to get it emailed from the NPS though. Magic♪piano 01:57, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh cool, thanks for the quick attention. FYI the listing date was also suffering from the same cut/paste error but I fixed it. Do you have advice on where to request an emailed copy of the documents? I dug around in the NRHP wikiproject and I saw people mentioning doing this, but not how they did it. --Krelnik (talk) 02:26, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
oops, wait, I found nr_reference (at) nps.gov, is that it? --Krelnik (talk) 02:27, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
That would be the address, yes. Magic♪piano 02:29, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! I emailed them. BTW, my new article Mary Blair Moody about the namesake of that house, is now live. --Krelnik (talk) 03:59, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
