Virginia for FAC[edit]

I'd like to put Virginia back up for Featured Article Candidate, and hope that the third time's the charm. I wanted to get in touch with you before I do to make sure you don't have any issue with the article, and that you'd support it when it goes up. Also check out the intro to make sure it works. I was aiming for the end of next week, so just give me a nod before then if there's anything. Thanks for your help.-- Patrick {oѺ} 19:13, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the map! I can't believe how long I've been at this without notice that glaring omission. And while I preferred the train image as a more classic visual for "transportation", I'm willing to try out Dulles. I do worry though that it makes it almost half of the photos which are from Northern Virginia.-- Patrick {oѺ} 21:20, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
One of the commentators added a "citation needed" tag for the sentence "Despite underfunding for segregated schools and services and a lack of political representation, African Americans still created vibrant communities and made progress." I don't know if it needs one, but it being at the end of a section probably causes it to stand out without one. Is this something you might have a book to source? I'll try to see if Cradle of America has something, since I think that sentence used to be in a paragraph that was cited to that book. Thanks.-- Patrick {oѺ} 04:24, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Washington Metro Area[edit]

You recently added all of the sister cities of all of the cities around Washington, D.C. I was wondering if it was truly necessary to have them at the metro area article, and not just put them at the respective city articles that can be linked to. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 13:49, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

I guess I will just leave them. It certainly doesn't hurt. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 20:18, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on May 14, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 14, 2011. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting.
