Foreign names of the sea[edit]

Those are handled by the interwiki links to the left of the page - there is no need to add them. In the article we keep only names in major languages that are spoken around the sea. Thus there is no need to add a German name to the Yellow Sea. Materialscientist (talk) 00:00, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

MOS[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. However, I undid your edit to Oregon because it introduced several style problems:

  • The map caption should not have a citation; instead, the information goes on the File: page, where it already exists. Anyone who wants to see it can click on the map.
  • Oregon does not require full-service fuel stations: it is okay to have mini-serve. Furthermore, there are complications with the Umatilla Reservation: they allow self serve and a few Warm Springs stations do too.
  • We don't put the same media in an article twice as you did with the map.

The addition of a transportation section is a great idea: please do it again. If you don't, I'll add a version of it in a day or two. Thanks! —EncMstr (talk) 01:09, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Re:Future 51st state of the United States[edit]

Isn't Puerto Rico part of the United States?

  • No. Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States whose political status can change at anytime. It can remain a territory or so called Common wealth, it can become independent or it can become a state of the United States. Puerto Rico will become part of the United States only when the United States Congress approves the statehood status. Tony the Marine (talk) 04:17, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Toro Negro State Forest[edit]

Hello NJRobbie. Just so you know, I undid your distance edits in Toro Negro State Forest, as it can get very confusing giving road distances in that article in miles instead of kilometers for the reason I explained in the edit summary (PR road distances are always expressed in kms). In particular, when a certain feature is located at a given km marker xyz, giving the equivalent in miles can be confusing because roads are physically marked by the government to read kilometers only. Also, when making multiple changes to an article that has been rather stable for a long time it's a good idea to try get other contributing editors opinions first. BTW, if you are planning to change all distances in all, or even some, PR roads articles, I suggest you first bring it to WP:RFC as I think you may have an uphill effort since, again, road markers as well as distance signs in Puerto Rico roads are -- officially -- expressed in kilometers, never in miles. Of course, there may be cases when using the Wikipedia convert template may -occasionally- be beneficial. Regards, Mercy11 (talk) 17:38, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

The reason why I added mile markers to the Toro Negro State Forest was because of the fact that most of Puerto Rico's residents voted to become the 51st state of the United States and I am very sure that Puerto Rico will be fully on par with the other 50 states once Isla del Encanto is officially admitted to the Union. NJRobbie (talk) 03:48, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
In addition to the new mileage readings potentially creating confusion to readers, there are at least 3 problems with your approach, and I think you should be aware of them. (1) Your actions, may appear to be politically motivated, and thus trigger an avalanche of unpredictable accusations (WP:OR, WP:V; WP:POV, etc) from plenty of editors who may perceive it as an attempt to push a political agenda. (2) Even if 100% of PR voters wanted to be a state, the fact is, it is not a state today. You are being presumptions, and in Wikipedia this is known as WP:SPECULATION. (3) There is evidence, from HERE that you are fully aware of PR's real status today and to imply differently while writing in Wikipedia, is equivalent to the proverbial WP:CRYSTAL BALL.

Puerto Rico highway edits[edit]

Puerto Rico uses the metric system on its roads, therefore kilometers should appear first. It's great if you want to switch measurements to use {{convert}}, but they need to list the metric first, not second. Imzadi 1979  03:38, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Imzadi1979,
Even though I am aware that Puerto Rico uses kilometers instead of miles and uses the imperial system for everything else, the reason why I added miles is because in June of this year most of Puerto Rico's residents voted to become the 51st state of the United States. I am sure that once Isla del Encanto is officially admitted to the Union they will be treated the same way as the other current 50 states. Yes, I will confess that I wholeheartedly want to see Puerto Rico become the 51st state of the United States and to see Isla del Encanto be treated just like the other 50 states. I am only speaking for myself, I am a resident of the current 50 states who is more than ready to welcome Puerto Rico on board as the newest state of this great land known as the United States.
NJRobbie
NJRobbie (talk) 04:58, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Your reasoning is invalid. Even assuming that PR became a state in the future and was simultaneously required to convert highway signs over to miles from kilometers, that still does not alter the fact that, right now, those very signs are in fact in kilometers. As I noted above, adding {{convert}} to articles to provide the conversions for metric measurements is a good thing, but the primary (first) measurement should remain in metric to reflect the current situation on the signs. Imzadi 1979  05:08, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

In response to both of the above threads: NJRobbie, if this POV-pushing behavior continues, you will be blocked. --Rschen7754 06:03, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
