Albany, New York[edit]

In the Lead, the construction of the first sentence of paragraph two is illogical: The first European settlement by Dutch colonists took place in 1614 at the site of Albany, who formed successful relations with both the Mahican and the Mohawk people, two major Native American nations.

"Social competition"[edit]

Can you rephrase? It looked sort of odd when I copyedited your addition, can you supply better phrasing?--Wehwalt (talk) 21:02, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thanks - could not remember quite how it was phrased. Will try to find it. Basically, people who got out of line, mostly men, were disciplined by lynching - maybe they competed in business, maybe they stood up for themselves. One study in MS found that lynching rates went up at settlement times for sharecroppers. Another economic study found lynching rates related to poor economic indicators - the worse the economy, the higher the number of lynchings.Parkwells (talk) 21:48, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
That would make sense, as Tillman's second term coincided with the Panic of 1893. Not that things were so hot for the farmer any time after the early 1880s.--Wehwalt (talk) 22:41, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
By the way, you're now a rollbacker. Acquaint yourself with it if necessary and if you don't want the user right ask me or any admin to remove it.--Wehwalt (talk) 22:47, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
The high rates of lynching in SC at that time were reflected in other southern states as well; as I recall it was the worst decade.Parkwells (talk) 23:06, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Benjamin Franklin Graves[edit]

I was taking a look at this article I wrote and noticed it never got anything other than the automatic assessment generated when I created the talk page. Would you mind maybe taking a look and assessing it? Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 20:32, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for cleaning it up and adding details etc. (Yay, it now has a "B"!)
One thing I ran into when I was editing this article was how to render some of the various titles, I went with the Library of Congress info ("The Kentucky encyclopedia" & the highways marker book) or how it was listed within a library ("Our relations: the Dudley-Pratt families") because that seemed authoritative but I am starting to realize that libraries only capitalize the first word in a title... I do try to keep sources' titles exactly as I find them. (Heh, I did go back and check the Dudley-Pratt book and see that on the title page of the original book the title was rendered as "Our Relations: The Dudley Pratt Families"! All this time I thought it was uncapitalized...oh well, thanks for catching my misapprehension.) Shearonink (talk) 07:09, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Shearonink - I just figured it was easy to make some small changes; have gotten used to capitalization not being picked up in Google, etc. but they always used to use it. Will anyone know how to capitalize any more? I still want to look at it again, as was interrupted. Have added a couple of cites. Would that be useful to you? Glad it got a "B".Parkwells (talk) 15:29, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Always good to have some more eyes taking a look, after all it's not one of the high-marquee articles. I am somewhat concerned about the differing numbers of prisoners/dead/casualties asserted in the various sources I have come across - from what I remember they seemed to vary widely depending on British/American and so on. Shearonink (talk) 17:04, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I noticed that - and saying that 30 to 100 prisoners were killed is quite a spread, but conditions were chaotic.Parkwells (talk) 22:31, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Saint Lawrence Seaway: Revision history- question[edit]

Greetings @Parkwells:, Saw your updates for article Saint Lawrence Seaway. On the Edit summary, wondering what (c/e) means? Being somewhat new to WP-almost 1 year now, I've not seen this c/e before... Regards, JoeHebda (talk) 17:30, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the confusion and thanks for the question. It was something I got used to in the government, meaning just minor copy edit. I should be more careful - just trying to improve some of the language, use active voice in some cases, add wikilinks, etc. Did not make many substantive changes, as I recall, but want to follow up on some items out of curiosity. e.g., If the point of the proposed expansion of the canals is to allow more oceangoing ships, why would there be feeder ships and a container port at Oneonta? I need to read the article cited.Parkwells (talk) 18:23, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Jefferson again[edit]

Major editors at Thomas Jefferson were distracted by a mediation over Ulysses Grant. Then a new editor showed up and made many edits. Also other editors. I found the article in shambles and did some reverting. You may want to look at it. YoPienso (talk) 14:30, 23 September 2015 (UTC)


ucc shooting page[edit]

Hello I noticed you edited the UCC shooting page. I want to make a correction. Under the guns used, it says ar-15 rifle.

Catholic Church sexual abuse cases[edit]

Thanks for your additions to the article. I noticed instances in which you have added material that I couldn't find in the sources already cited. For example, in the first paragraph of the article, you added "sometimes sending priests to treatment centers", which I could not find in the sources. One source mentions that one priest did not comply with a treatment program, which is not exactly the same as "sending priests to treatment centers.". Did you check the sources there and elsewhere to be sure your edits conformed to the sources? I'm not saying that you added incorrect information, just information I could not find in the sources. Thanks. Sundayclose (talk) 17:10, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, must have been too hasty. I knew that the treatment centers were part of the US story and thought it was thoroughly covered by the Globe. Will check again.Parkwells (talk) 17:14, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

Thanks again for copyediting the Zagreb Synagogue!

I'd be really grateful if you could lend a hand with Croatian Apoxyomenos - the article is nominated for DYK, but apparently a "light copyedit" from a native speaker is needed. The article is in decent condition and the topic is fairly interesting I'd say, so could you take a quick look and improve the language a bit? GregorB (talk) 15:24, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

No problem at all - the DYK reviewers certainly won't press it, and extra time is OK. I appreciate your help! GregorB (talk) 14:00, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Well, since 10 days or so have passed, the review must go on, so I'll make some changes to the wording in certain places and make additional tweaks; if you happen to have some time, you can make a quick pass and fix the remaining issues. GregorB (talk) 21:22, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Bradsby[edit]

I've corrected about a half a dozen refs on the Scranton Strike article that you've made to a ref named bradby. I have been correcting them to "bradsby", but you seem to have undone one of those corrections. If this is an error and you indeed mean to ref an author named bradby, please add and name the correct ref. Otherwise please take care to cite the correct ref name.

There is currently one broken ref name on the article (see the error message on the reference section). I will correct in the morning assuming it is intended to reference bradsby (with an s), unless you otherwise indicate that there is another reference attributed to a bradby (without an s) that hasn't yet been added.

All the best, and thanks for your interest in the article. TimothyJosephWood 02:06, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi Timothy - So sorry to lead you to those corrections; must have gotten really tired. Kept meaning to go back to the original source; can't remember how I got confused on the spelling. Thanks for all your work on this and especially on the general article.Parkwells (talk) 02:11, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

I have been working on building a skeleton for the 1877 events in Pittsburgh based on McCabe. If you find yourself in need of a project, pop on over and spend some time there.

Thanks, I had checked on the article and noticed that. So tiring. It was good to work on Pittsburgh and really interesting to see some of those early accounts. So many different perspectives on what was going on. I came across more info that said the union guys kept some trains running on the other side of the river in Allegheny City (now North Side). Have to remember where I found that.Parkwells (talk) 02:00, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

Buxton, Iowa[edit]

I note that, on 31 Oct, 2015, you changed the text from:

  • Consolidation was one of the very first northern industrial employers to make large-scale use of African American labor. As such, it helped pave the way for the Great Migration of the early 20th century.

to

  • Consolidation was one of the very first northern industrial employers to make large-scale use of African American labor. It recruited Southern workers who were part of the Great Migration of the early 20th century, when more than 1.5 million African Americans moved north out of the rural South.

This change explains the Great Migration, a useful thing, but it also makes the hiring of blacks by Consolidation (starting in 1880) into part of the Great Migration. Since the Great Migration is usually seen as an early 20th century thing, this seems wrong. That is why the original wording was "paved the way". I don't want to get into a (rather slow) edit war about this, so I thought I'd ask first before taking any action.Douglas W. Jones (talk) 20:43, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

    • Hi, thanks for your note. How about if I identify when Consolidation started hiring African Americans, to put it in context and then relate to paving the way for the future Great Migration? Having learned about the latter, I try to include it in articles where it seems appropriate, to provide information that many people don't know.Parkwells (talk) 22:06, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

1967 Milwaukee riot[edit]

I seem to have more-or-less reached the end of my sources for this article, and still have about a three week gap where I have little or no information. Just something to add to your to-do list if you're so inclined, since you seem to be good at this type of thing.

Also, I nominated Scranton general strike for GA. Let's hope for the best. TimothyJosephWood 22:59, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi TimothyJosephWoods - looks like you have a substantive article. I made some copy edits but haven't been able to follow up on other elements. Was sick for the last week. Hope to get back to it later this week. You contributed so much substance to Scranton general strike. The review should go well.Parkwells (talk) 18:11, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
This has another perspective on 1967, as well as the relatively recent arrival of African Americans in this industrial city in the postwar years.

Russian whaling in Alaska[edit]

On the Juneau, Alaska page you stated that the Russians were conducting "extensive whaling" with Alaskan Eskimos. What whaling was that exactly? I know they did some whaling in the Gulf of Alaska, but I wasn't aware of any to the north. They primarily caught whales in the Sea of Okhotsk and Sea of Japan.

Thank you for your notes; will have to recheck. They had a fur trading post at Kodiak by 1800. and other posts and missions in the Aleutian Islands.

Anthony Velonis[edit]

Hey - I saw that your sandbox linked to Anthony Velonis and wanted to mention that I just now published a pretty complete overview of him. Since I'm guessing you're interested in the topic, I figured I'd ask if there's anything you'd want to change about the page? I think I have a pretty decent set of references, but I am still fairly new to editing on Wikipedia so I'm sure there's some way to improve. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks! —Atvelonis (talk) 22:54, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Terrific article - I did some minor editing but really admire the work you did.

Papua New Guinea[edit]

In this edit, you changed the capture of German New Guinea from "early in World War I" to "in 1905", which does not appear to be correct. I've changed it, but if the several articles in Wikipedia referring to this event are incorrect, please include some sources to back up the date.-gadfium 19:05, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi - in fact I had changed it first to 1905 due to a source that said that date, as I earlier had WWI; and thought I'd put in the cite. Will try to find it. Maybe the sources conflict, if most say during WWI. Looked again; it appears I confused German New Guinea with the change in status of Papua. Thanks for catching that. Parkwells (talk) 13:59, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Ok, no problem.-gadfium 20:09, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
