External Links[edit]

Feb 28th 2007: I don't understand why you won't accept those as links. I understand that pages listed on wikies use the nofollow so I wouldn't be interested in pagerank anywho. I think ya'll should be more open to the links you allow. Any information is good info if you ask me.

I only link to encyclopedic resources NOT commercial sites. I understand that Wikipedia is not a directory, thus I only put links to pages that contain information about a specific topic versus things like where you can find or use them.

Often commercial sites offer thorough articles on the topics surrounding their products. Whenever I add a link to a site like this I link directly to the informational part of their site and not the rest. That is why I added yosemitetours.travel/national-park-guide/yosemite-firefall.htm to the external links. This page is useful information. There wasn't much on the wiki and I didn't just want to copy it so instead I linked to it.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.142.88.201 (talkcontribs)

More External Links[edit]

Hi Matt, thanks for correcting me on this. Being a resident here on Kauai, I'm just trying to provide useful info for users. Hiking the Na Pali is great, but seeing it by boat, kayaking, or even by helicopter (though I'm scared of helicopters) are also good options. However, I take it - putting up commercial links is not good. Is this correct? Is my last link to the hiking the Na Pali page ok? WasabiHawaii (talk)

Disciples of Christ...[edit]

You're quite right: the Sandemanians and Glasites are Scotland only. The misapprehension dates from the aborted church union between the United Church of Canada (predominantly Presbyterian but also including virtually all Methodists and Congregationalists of the time of church union ie the decades leading up to 1925), the Anglican Church of Canada and the Disciples of Christ. As a matter of speculation, it is possible that the assumption that the Disciples of Christ were of Scottish origin was intended to minimise their United States roots. I have reverted my own edit. The reasons for the sundering of the 1960s and '70s church union are a matter of personal communication by Anglican bishops, though there is ample documentation of the fact that the houses of laity and clergy voted in favour and the house of bishops vetoed it. Unable to find time to track this down just at the moment but will do so in due course. Nice to have a reasonable and polite discussion about such things: disagreement in this forum is so often couched in terms of surpassing rudeness -- so thanks. Masalai 21:47, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Template:Japanese city[edit]

"I noticed you recently edited the Japanese city template in order to fix some things, such as SymbolImage. I don't actually know how it was behaving before, but the sybmol part appears now without a caption at Matsuyama, Ehime."

That's not something I changed. Here's the way it looked before:
old Template:Japanese city, with this code:
[[Image:{{{SymbolImage}}}|130px|Symbol of {{{Name}}}]].
The "Symbol of NAME" only showed in the image's alternate text.

By contrast, Template:Japanese prefecture shows it explicitly:
[[Image:{{{Symbol}}}|130px|{{#if:{{{SymbolName|}}}|{{{SymbolName}}}|Symbol of {{{Name}}} Prefecture}}]] <br/>{{#if:{{{SymbolDescription|}}}|{{{SymbolDescription}}}|Symbol of {{{Name}}} Prefecture}}

I guess it'd be easy enough to add the label, if you want me to. —wwoods 00:40, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

coordinate precision[edit]

I have set the coordinates for all but 1 (Safeco Field, which wouldn't have looked right on the google map) of the 30 major league baseball stadiums to be centered on the pitcher's mound (or the 50 yard line if the picture is of the stadium with a football feild layout). I have also standardized the template used for all the coordinates that show up for all MLB parks and added coordinates to those MLB ballparks which didn't have them before (which was the majority... nobody cared about standardizing this stuff before I came along). Plus I have put in a magnification level where the google map will show the park in excellent detail. I have spent a lot of time figuring all of this out. I hope that in the spirit of the five pillars you don't undo my work. Thank you for asking me about it.--Dr who1975 05:44, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

I use the center of the roof for domes or if the picture is of a collapsable dome that is closed. There are only 3 such baseball parks. Tampa Bay and 1 other permanent dome and then 1 other where the dome is closed. I still zoom in as closely as possible with goodle earth before taking down the coordinates.--Dr who1975 03:18, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Great Barrier Reef[edit]

I've been expanding the Geology and Geography and Tourism sections of late - can you please have a look at them? Do you think they still need the section stub tag? Also, I've found a really comprehensive reference for species, but every time I look at it, it blows my mind. [1] I've had a little look around to try and see what similar articles do with their Species sections, but I couldn't find too much. Do you have any suggestions for how we could use this reference appropriately? Thanks loads for all of your work on GBR to date. - Malkinann 23:48, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks mate, that looks a bit better.  :) Would the "Species of the GBR" category include invasive species? - Malkinann 01:48, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Image[edit]

I understand that you think the image I added was too large, and I can understand making it smaller, but why remove it altogether when I think it helps show the complete Nā Pali Coast. If you don't think it is a good picture that adds anything, well that would be a different story. Remember 15:49, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

No worries. I would love any help making the image better. Feel free to edit it in any way that you think would make it better. I'll wait on it getting cleaned up before adding it again to the page. Remember 16:54, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Excellent job with the picture! It looks much better now. Thanks for all your help! Remember 19:09, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
I put up the picture to be reviewed at Wikipedia:Picture peer review and it appears someone has already taking a liking to it. Thanks again for your help in making this picture much better. 13:38, 31 January 2007 (UTC) Remember

Na Pali State Park[edit]

Hi Matt, I totally understand what you mean. The site that I found also describes it as a 16 mile coast which is not what I was disputing. The Na Pali coast State Park is the subject of the Wikipedia article and is actually just a small part of the 3 parks and land that is not designated as a park that are on the coast as well.

There is a Milolii State Park on the coast along with a Nualolo Kai State park. I am not sure if state parks can be nested within eachother and I cannot find anything that shows the outline of the park aside from a google map or a msn map. I was just clarifying that the entire coast is not just the Na Pali Coast State Park.

The actual coastline itself that is encompassed in the state park appears to be 2.5 miles or so in google earth.

I would make the recommendation that Na pali Coast and Na pali coast state park would be two seperate articles. The Honopu beach and definitely Nualolo Kai with it's history and Milolii beach are worthy of their own articles as well.

Thank you Matt, hope i did this talkback right. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ScottConrad (talkcontribs)

Na Pali State Park[edit]

Hi Matt, i checked today and it looks like they updated the map and you are indeed correct. You must pull some weight over at Google :)

World Heritage infobox in Chaco Culture National Historical Park article[edit]

Hi! Someone keeps on deleting the World Heritage infobox in the said article, saying that it's full of "infocruft". I forwarded the case already for mediation. If you are interested, please drop by the mediation article (see here) or the talk page of the article to express your opinion. Thanks. Joey80 09:15, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

reply to cancellation of my efforts for Google Maps quick city link[edit]

Google Maps & Earth external links inside the infobox:

Since Wikipedia is an encyclopedia whose contributors are the readers themselves today I attemped to produce an easier connection (which I really thought it was needed) between the article of a city and the major external services relating to its geographical coordinates. At the present State of the Art Google is a sort of standard in this respect and I've thought that now it's time to have this link directly embedded into the infobox. It is true that a complete external service is already permanently linked on the top right side of many city articles, under "coordinates", by means of the templates of the coor and geo* families and http://tools.wikimedia.de/~magnus/geo/geohack.php?, but as a user I did find not very practical having to open that link and to scroll the long and always growing list of geohack in search of the maybe most requested today (in its 2 most popular versions): Google Maps and Google Earth. So I've thought -maybe wrongly?- that a discussion wasn't even needed if I was simply trying to use some parameters (latitude and longitude) already present in the city infobox and attempting the best layout of their easy and (today) needed quick link. Under the infobox city title seemed to me the best and practical place (for its immediate use), but if it is too invasive for the eye the same can be done under the map and the geo coordinates below. So now, if you agree, following the suggestions received, I'll try to move the code I produced to that location inside the infobox. Sorry for my bad English, but I was and I am really trying to help :)--Florenus 20:41, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Denver Mtn Parks category[edit]

Matt-- as a new wiki person, I'm not sure why DMP is a category and not an article page. Can I add to your basic description on the category page, or should I create a new article page? I'm a bit baffled by the nuances of some of this... Best-- Araucana

Okay, I created a new article page for Denver Mountain Parks. Please take a look when you have a chance and either make changes or let me know what I need to do with it. It's a start... Appreciate your help. Araucana 19:26, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, Matt. I debated, but left the coordinates as they are very close to coor for the headquarters of Denver Mountain Parks (field office). I realize we can't put a coordinate for the whole system, as it's too big. Should I add more accurate coordinates for that office, or just leave as is? Araucana 21:17, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
I appreciate your suggestions on references on the DMP article page and will try to get that cleaned up soon (but will be out of town, so it could be a week or two). Also, I'll try to add refs to the Red Rocks names Rick posted, in time. Thanks for your encouragement and improvements to the article. Araucana 13:38, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Aloha, Matt. I see you are using the 2004 Data Book.[3] Are you aware that the 2005 Data Book is online? [4]Viriditas | Talk 08:36, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

The thing is, I recall seeing the 2006 version in print, but I need to confirm that. Either that's not online or it's possible that they are only up to 2005. —Viriditas | Talk 08:42, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Apartheid Wall[edit]

I think you misunderstand the purposed of a disambig page. I will give you two examples since they exist for people and everything else. Bruce Murray In this case, four people by that name have articles and this page directs you to each one based on a short description (ie this one is a doctor, this one an athlete, etc). 'Twas the Night before Christmas same thing but in this case, it is listing various articles about poems, tv shows, albums, etc.

I am not 100% sure what you were trying to say in this article's case but it is not the same as what wiki means! Postcard Cathy 11:14, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Map format question[edit]

Thanks for noticing the Coloroado locator map. I copy the maps from the US Census website and then color and crop them and save them in PNG format (as it is lossless). I know about SVG format in theory, but do not have any expertise with it (or software to make SVG). I know there is free software for SVG, but think you also need GIS software to make maps (not sure). If you are interested, here is a link to how I make the maps in more detail. User:Ruhrfisch/Resources#Making_Maps. User:VerruckteDan will soon make it so that a Geobox for Colorado will only need the latitude and longitude to generate an accurate locator dot appear. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 03:10, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

World Council of Churches[edit]

Hi Matt - thanks for asking for that, as I find an odd fact. The list I used was derived from a link already given in the external links section of the article - here. To create the list, I merely included all churches with an asterix next to their name, as the text indicates that these are the member churches. It is unclear when this list is accurate as of - the web page is copyrighted 2007.

Now here's the odd part - that page appears to be the WCC's official web page. But then I found this, which is a different list, organized differently, on, apparently, an entirely different domain, that also appears to be the official WCC site. So I'm not sure what to do. john k 00:35, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

There's definitely some bits of the second list that are out of date - for instance, it lists separately three Dutch churches which have since merged into the Protestant Church in the Netherlands, and also lists separately the Evangelical Church of Berlin-Brandenburg and the Evangelical Church of Silesian Upper Lusatia, which have also merged. john k 06:38, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

I'll add that the first list contains some differences which are unlikely to be the result of either time or "listing web pages." IIRC, it lists the Scottish Episcopal Church, but states that it is not a member of the WCC, while the other list includes it. john k 06:39, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
