Nice article![edit]

Loved your article on Thyra Samter Winslow and the floating birthdate. So common actually. How she got a passport stating she was born in 1893 is beyond me (note the Brazilian visa says the info came from her US passport). But, 1886 is probably correct. She might have had a reason to change the date, but her parents weren't likely to have reported it wrong. Note that they married 27 May 1885 and the first extant census on which Thyra was enumerated shows she was born in March 1886. SusunW (talk) 22:38, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

@SusunW:Thank you! And thanks for the genealogy links as well! They're so helpful. I will include them as references on the article. Nonmodernist (talk) 02:20, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
I love the research part and the puzzles of putting together women's histories. Glad to help any time. SusunW (talk) 15:27, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles such as Pearl Doles Bell, Underworld (1937 film), Thyra Samter Winslow and Alma Webster Hall Powell, based on scientific background, neatly arranged, for adding images such as a 1919 one, for teaching courses, - Alex, you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Margaret Hayden Rorke DYK nomination and cleanup[edit]

Hello, Nonmodernist. I've approved reviewed Template:Did you know nominations/Margaret Hayden Rorke. It was a great read, though I have an outstanding question. In addition, I've moved the nomination from 9 April to 8 April. For the reason why, see Wikipedia:Did you know: Articles that have been worked on exclusively in a user or user talk subpage or at articles for creation or in the Draft namespace and then moved (or in some cases pasted) to the article mainspace are considered new as of the date they reach the mainspace. and the shorter explanation at Template talk:Did you know: In the current nominations section find the subsection for the date on which the article was created or on which expansion began (or, if a new Good Article, the date on which it became a GA), not the date on which you make the nomination. I've also marked User:Margaret Hayden Rorke for speedy deletion because it was a result of an erroneous move, and there is no editor with that username. Thanks for your contributions, and happy editing. Vycl1994 (talk) 04:40, 9 April 2019 (UTC) Edited at 05:21, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Many thanks, Vycl1994. I appreciate your help in fixing my timezone/date/page moving errors. --Nonmodernist (talk) 13:48, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

On second thought, I have removed the tag for now. Please add some documentation if this template will be used. Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 20:27, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Jonesey95: Thanks for AGF. I have added documentation. --Nonmodernist (talk) 12:35, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry about that. It just tripped my mental "this looks like a test or a mistake" flag, and I was too quick with the trigger finger. It showed up on a list of templates with minor technical errors; I fixed the error, I'm pretty sure. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:29, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
