TFL notification[edit]

Hi, Reywas. I'm just posting to let you know that List of National Historic Landmarks in Indiana – a list that you have been heavily involved with – has been chosen to appear on the Main Page as Today's featured list for March 25. The TFL blurb can be seen here. If you have any thoughts on the selection, please post them on my talk page or at TFL talk. Regards, Giants2008 (Talk) 03:49, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Looney Lists[edit]

I suppose I have it backwards, but my plan was to split off the bit that I did and make List of people who have walked on the Moon, and then replace the section in List of Apollo astronauts with a summary. I planned to do the same with People who flew to the Moon without landing. Then, I planned to fill List of Apollo astronauts with information on who was selected for what mission, who was peeved they were not selected when they thought they should have been, maybe talk a bit about the decision on who would walk first, talk a bit about the cancelled Apollo missions. My general thought was after I finish the two sub-lists (people who walked on the Moon and people who flew to the Moon without landing), and after I finish List of Apollo astronauts, if the three combined together is still a relatively short article I can always remerge them at that time. I thought it would be easier to deal with them as separate entities at first so sections like Lunar activities could be written easier.

Overall, it does not matter to me all that much how it is all formatted and broken out in the end, so long as the content is somewhere and readers can find it. I am not the master-of-all over all things astronaut related, after all :). Cheers, and good work on the Indiana articles. Kees08 (Talk) 06:30, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Hmm that could work to see how they develop. I saw on the talk page that you do have some good ideas on what else to add there. My experience as a FLC regular (and in my own lists) is that a lot of subarticle lists end up having a lead full of fun facts/stats just gleamed from the table itself (like oldest/youngest person, etc) that don't really add new information but are sort of prose filler in addition to introductions copied from a main article if there is one. There isn't an article that specifically covers details of the lunar activities (rather, split across the mission articles) so that would definitely be something good to summarize (Apollo_program#Production_lunar_landings is relatively short on that, and then there's List of spacewalks and moonwalks 1965–1999), but I wonder if that's better with an astronaut focus or a mission focus. I'm just generally of the wiki-philosophy that articles/lists on connected topics should be consolidated as much as practicable and split only when it gets too long to reduce duplication. Plus with how the missions work, Aldrin and Armstrong shouldn't necessarily be split up from Collins and so on! Just depends how these may be treated as companion articles or subarticles of each other but additional info beyond the tables could justify certain organizations.

Why - your Rio de la Mina article move was undone by me. Because....[edit]

Hi. Thank you for redirecting Río de la Mina (Rio Grande, Puerto Rico) to Río de la Mina (Río Grande, Puerto Rico) (with the í). I had originally undone your move because your original move had redirected the article to List of rivers of Puerto Rico. --the eloquent peasant (talk) 20:29, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Dingell Act[edit]

@Reywas92: I was deep into an article on the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act when I finally thought to check if someone else was already working on it, and I see that you are. I'm going to stop, rather than duplicate effort or step on toes, but you're welcome to grab any part of the draft I've been working on. Schazjmd (talk) 19:35, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Well I'm glad I'm not the only one interested in the bill on Wikipedia! Thanks for working on it too, I'll see how we can merge them this weekend. I based the article structure on the 2009 omnibus bill. Reywas92Talk 02:36, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
