Wiki-Oregon upgrades to High importance[edit]

The next 2 bullets were imported from the Wiki-Oregon talk page.

Now that the Top discussion is wrapping up, time to move on to the High category. On this one, we are around 400 articles off our artificial goal. Since we had about eight editors participate, if we all just go through the Mid and Low categories and randomly move up 50 based on the criteria already outlined and mixed with some personal opinions, that would get us about there, or close enough. So go forth and move some up. You don't have to do 50, and you did not have to vote or have participated in the above discussion. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:00, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I did title-review of all Mid importance articles this weekend, and only found 35 I thought were upgrade candidates. I've posted them on bottom of my User page for anyone who's interested. While I'm sure I missed some, I don't think there's anywhere near 400 articles worthy of upgrade. Think we need to be careful we don't upgrading articles that aren't worthy of High importance rating. I'll wait week/so before I change any article ratings to High just in case anyone has a problem with any of my picks...just leave me note on my talk page.--Orygun (talk) 23:19, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Crump Lake (Oregon)[edit]

Wikipedia UNDO policy: "If you are undoing an edit that is not vandalism, explain the reason in the edit summary. Do not use the default message only."

I know it's a pain at times, but it tells other editors what you consider wrong. It's also good to offer suggestions. But you're not new to Wiki editing, you must know this. Twemoji 1f609.svg Regards. — 72.234.220.38 (talk) 08:24, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

  • You’re right should have added note to the undo, but I thought with the edit that followed rationale would be clear. Obviously, it wasn’t so here’s what I intended … normally intro paragraph doesn’t need footnotes as long as the information is cited somewhere in the article. In this case, you were right my original text was rather redundant so I restore the more detailed text to the main body of the article along with the footnote citation and then simplified the intro text in a separate edited that followed immediately after the undo. Also, I may not have bothered with these changes except that the source (Oregon Geographic Names, 7th edition) doesn’t have any info on the birth/death of Thomas Crump so previous edit overstated the info found in that source. Bottomline ... my goal was to keep the intro simple with details and citations in the body of the article.--Orygun (talk) 22:12, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I now have a much better understanding of how you were formatting the article, and I now also see it is "your baby", so big props on creating it. I did make a mistake by not adding the citation on the birth/death of Thomas Crump as I have done in another article. I will remedy that. Yes, keeping the intro simple with details and citations in the body of the article is the current "best practice" on Wikipedia articles and this one follows that quite well. Thanks for what you do Symbol thumbs up color.svg and regards. — 72.234.220.38 (talk) 04:59, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

The Oregon Desert[edit]

Mannanan51: Why did you merge the Reub Long article into the The Oregon Desert article? The person and the book are both notable in their own right. In addition, the second author E. R. Jackman has a stand-alone article. In this case, combining author and books into one article doesn’t make sense. Would you mind if I separated the two again?--Orygun (talk) 03:47, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Both the E. R. Jackman and R. A. Long articles had merge tags dating back to April 2014, apparently because someone felt that it was the book for which they were most notable. Others may disagree. I have no opinion in the matter, but was merely working on cleaning up some of the older listings. Rest assured I have no objection whatsoever if you wish to revert, but in that case it would probably be best to also remove the tags, (which as you see remains still on E.R. Jackman). Do whatever you think best. Mannanan51 (talk) 20:52, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
  • In that case I'm going to reverse the merger. I was watching for any comment on the merger tag and was thinking about removing it since no one had posted any comments during 2 yrs tag was in place.--Orygun (talk) 21:03, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Edward A Geary assessment[edit]

  • I see you rated article on Edward A. Geary as a C-Class article. What needs to be added to get it up to B-Class article level? I've been through ~50 years of newspaper articles plus available state legislative records. Before I go back to look for more info, I'd like to know what I need to look for.--Orygun (talk) 17:28, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
  • @Orygun: Nothing. It was a mistake. I do hundreds of article assements every week, so, it is quite natural to make a mistake every now and then. I reassessed the article. Thank you for your work. Best wishes. --Meno25 (talk) 12:46, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
