List of US Light Rail Systems[edit]

Millbrooky, it appears you have provided a graphic on the wiki page, "List of US Light-Rail Systems". The graphic illustrates average daily ridership using the latest quarterly information provided to APTA. The latest has not been updated since 1st Qtr 2008 data was made available, yet 3rd Qtr 2008 is now out. Would you consider updating it, or if I took a stab at a revised graphic? --Track Legs (talk) 23:13, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

St. Louis Neighborhoods Infobox Template[edit]

I've added an infobox template for St. Louis neighborhoods at Template:St. Louis neighborhoods. Let me know what you think of it, and feel free to improve it. Onegentlemanofverona (talk) 04:30, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Missouri's 3rd congressional district[edit]

The article on Missouri's 3rd congressional district which you added to WikiProject St. Louis as a Stub has since been upgraded to C-class by two other WikiProjects, which suggests the need for a re-assessment of the article's WikiProject St. Louis rating. --TommyBoy (talk) 04:21, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Bi State Development Agency[edit]

Hello Millbrooky I am MetroFan2009! Come visit my user page! I have been editing some Templates! (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 04:16, 11 December 2009 (UTC))

I just want to quote that you are my wiki idol! Please come visit my userpage. You are number 1 for great Wikiproject St. Louis! (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 02:19, 16 December 2009 (UTC))

Please respond on my userpage as soon as you get this message!! I want to get to know you fellow Wikipedian!!! (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 18:23, 18 December 2009 (UTC))

Sorry to disappoint, but I am mostly retired from Wikipedia. As much as I would like to improve the various articles on St. Louis public transit, I just don't have the time necessary to invest in them. --Millbrooky (talk) 20:59, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Then Why do you still edit some of the pages? Please respond. (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 22:38, 18 December 2009 (UTC))
I used to make well over 250 edits a month. I now make less than 5 edits a month. --Millbrooky (talk) 17:38, 23 December 2009 (UTC)


mostly retired? ha! You'll be back.  :) I introduced a map to Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Louis and I'm considering making individual pages for all the wards, and a list of aldermen. The size of the project scares me a bit. I think the main page on the aldermen could use a lot of work before it becomes useful for citizens. I'm excited by the prospect though. Any opinions you might have on the direction of this would be appreciated. Cheers. Enjoy your retirement. DaronDierkes (talk) 00:44, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure I'll be back as well, just not anytime in the near future as I currently have a severe lack of time to dedicate to the project. My 10-second glance over reveals only two concerns: notability of article subjects and overlinking (too much blue). Personally, I question the notability of alderman, in general. Nice to see you back here, though. --Millbrooky (talk) 17:57, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Missouri[edit]

Flag of Missouri.svg

There hasn't been much activity at WikiProject Missouri or any of its child projects lately, and I saw your name on the list of active participants. If you are willing to jump in again, please consider helping to revive the project:

If you know anyone who might be interested in Missouri (its history, culture, sports, people, places, architecture, etc.), please pass this message along to them! If you are still interested in the project but aren't currently active, please add yourself to the list of inactive participants at the bottom of this list. Thanks!

St. Louis Metro Transit[edit]

Greetings Millbrooky. I am MetroFan2009. I have notice that you have made some changes on pages that I had created. I was wondering that if we could work together on the page? I am aware that I have made some mistakes and do not have enough information for them other than the maps and EWGCOG pages. I tried to find more information of all the names of the proposed stations. I'm sorry. I'm using my PSP to type to you. Please respond on my usertalk page. (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 20:15, 10 May 2010 (UTC))

Mayor of St. Louis[edit]

Thanks for the note. I hadn't realised until after reading it that you were by far the most active editor in this page's recent history; I now see that there's no need for a discussion, especially given your comparison to FLs that follow this naming format. Please renominate it; I don't remember what you wanted me to do with it. Nyttend (talk) 02:29, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Okay, just wanted to make sure that there wasn't something else that I was supposed to do as well. Page has been moved. Nyttend (talk) 03:00, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

MetroLink Templates[edit]

OK. Fair enough!! (Jordan S. Wilson (talk) 17:15, 24 May 2010 (UTC))

Greetings Millbrooky. I just want to ask you on how we could expand the pages on not just MetroLink, but also MetroBus and Metro Call-A-Ride? I thihk that we need to add some new images for St. Louis Metro Transit, Madison County Transit, and St. Clair County Transit District. I am thinking about creating St. Louis Public Service Company and expanding Streetcars in St. Louis, however I may need to find some references for the pages. What do you think? If you have extra time I would like to get back to you on that!! Happy Edits!!(02:11, 5 June 2010 (UTC))

Please expand wikix[edit]

I do not have much knowledge about wikix: Please try expanding without deleting it. Rishikeshan (talk) 12:41, 5 June 2010 (UTC)rishikeshan

Reviewer granted[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:35, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Chase Park Plaza Hotel[edit]

Hello! You're obviously a person who is knowledgeable about St. Louis architecture, so perhaps you can look into the treatment of the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. I created the article about Preston J. Bradshaw, but I've only been to St. Louis once and I don't know the city. I copied the photo from the article titled Chase Park Plaza Hotel and placed it in the Gallery section of the Bradshaw article. However, I wonder if the photo in the Chase Park Plaza Hotel article is the correct photo. This webpage shows a building about ten stories tall. The photo in Wikipedia shows a much taller building. The two buildings are apparently right next door to each other. If the photo is the correct photo, why does the Chase Park Plaza Hotel article give as a source? Is the photo in the article the correct photo? There's an error somewhere here -- can you resolve this contradiction? Many thanks. Canadian2006 (talk) 03:21, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

I understand your confusion. The Chase Park Plaza is a collection of buildings built at different times that are all connected and considered, for all intents and purposes, one cohesive whole. As for your concern, I removed the photo of the Chase from the Bradshaw article: Bradshaw designed the 10-story Chase Hotel and apartments; Schopp and Baumann, the 28-story Park Plaza residence tower (source). Hope that clears things up. --Millbrooky (talk) 05:40, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Student Sustainable Farm at Rutgers[edit]

Millbrooky - I have some questions about the edits you recently made to the page, and hope to get your help in improving it. Please see the farm Talk page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mlecin (talkcontribs) 19:27, 24 June 2010 (UTC)


Hallo. Just letting you know I reviewed you, and apologies for the wait. Feel free to ask anything about it you want. Cheers, C628 (talk) 23:46, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

I-64 in MO[edit]

The reason you haven't seen much vandalism on this page is because it's been semi-protected for a significant percentage of the past two years. This edit is part of an ongoing pattern of abuse by the "St. Louis Signer" on St. Louis-area highway articles stretching back to 2008; see the histories of Interstate 70 in Missouri, Interstate 270 (Illinois-Missouri), Interstate 255, Missouri Route 100, et al for some more examples. One of these you even reverted yourself in October 2008. As this editor has been persistently editing these articles over a period of two years from a dynamic IP, consensus with the other admins I hashed this out with back then was to semiprotect the affected pages. Please contact WT:USRD to verify the history of this vandal. I unfortunately do not recall the specific pages where this was discussed, though I recall User:Krimpet was one of the other admins I discussed it with. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 15:00, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

What do you propose to handle the situation going forward? Wait to see if the vandalism returns to the previous level, and reprotect if so? —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 03:49, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Pedro Dot divs[edit]

Hi Millbrooky. I see you removed my divs in the Pedro Dot article. The problem they solved was this: subscripts for references push the lines in which they occur away from the previous lines so far that (1) the line space is visibly unequal to that of other lines in the paragraph, and (2) the line space is equal to that between paragraphs. The result is a typographical no-no in which false paragraphs and false breaks between them are formed. There must be a good Wiki solution to this, but I don't know what it is.
