reversion[edit]

I reverted your notability tag on the River City Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps since 6 of the 7 reference cites are already from independent secondary sources... GWFrog (talk) 01:46, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough. I would question whether most of those references qualify as significant coverage but don't really want to pick a fight over it. Nsteffel (talk) 17:53, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:59, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Louis F. Menage[edit]

Hello Nsteffel:
The copy edit you requested by the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Louis F. Menage has been completed. I would offer a suggestion that you remove the text of the following two items and place them as footnotes at the bottom of the article. It is interesting information but perhaps too lengthy to be included in the body of the article as you have done.

(Many present day property descriptions in these areas still reference Menage's name in the plat or subdivision names.)
(and occasionally waived it entirely, such as when he sold property for the development of The Minikahda Club)

If he fled to Guatemala because he could not be extradited to face trial that would be worth adding.

I strongly suggest that you archive newspaper, or magazine citations from the Internet as time allows. This ensures your article's references are available "forever" - no "dead" urls. The site I use is https://archive.org/web/. Simply copy the url in your citation and paste it in the "Save Page" box on the archive.org site and click save. It creates a copy of the original page and provides you with a new url to add to your original citation. You the add the new url to the end of the original citation like this: |archiveurl= http etc|archivedate=30 January 2016}} Not all websites allow archiving - CBS TV news and the NY Times are two I've come across, so there's not much you can do about that unless there is an alternate citation you could use.

Otherwise, an excellent article about an interesting man.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Kind regards, Twofingered Typist (talk) 15:09, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Review of Mountain Lake Township, Cottonwood County, Minnesota[edit]

Hello Nsteffel - I have made improvements to the article on Mountain Lake Township, Cottonwood County, Minnesota so that it is hopefully no longer "start class" and was wondering as an editor and member of the Minnesota project if you would be willing to review it for me (or suggest someone who would). Thank you. Jsniessen (talk) 15:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Absolutely! You've made some great improvements to the history section in particular and everything looks very well referenced. I'll bump it up a level to a C-class article. Nice work! Nsteffel (talk) 15:37, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! Looking forward, what would you need to see done there to move it to the next level? Jsniessen (talk) 20:15, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure, to be quite honest. It's nicely written and well-referenced. There's always the potential to write more on a topic, but I don't know how much more could be said about a small rural township. You might want to head over to Wikipedia:Peer review to get another opinion on it. It might well actually meet the B-class criteria; I have personally hesitated to assign that to many articles since I'm pretty new to assessment work. Nsteffel (talk) 22:51, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice, and compliment, my friend. I too wonder how much more township information is out there (short of opening up the secretary's notes from the township board meetings - possible but difficult) since history seems usually to be formally organized at the city/county/state level - or personal interviews, which would probably be categorized as 'original research'. Otherwise, I think I have reached the limit of my resources. Jsniessen (talk) 19:10, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
