That came from a US government source, which is Public domain - see Wikipedia:Public domain#U.S. government works --rogerd (talk) 00:47, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
You should still use your own wording. That's someone else's work, regardless of whether or not it is in the PD. Also, don't revert the whole edit when not everything was in the wrong. The infobox was perfectly fine. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 01:42, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
I changed a lot of the wording, keeping some of it. Look at David L. Goldfein (the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force) or any other top military official. Most of them are virtually cut and paste jobs. Also, the info box referred to her role as acting SecAf, which as of the 16th, she isn't any more. She is back to being Undersecretary. --rogerd (talk) 02:00, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
She is no different than senators and representatives, they do the exact same thing as I did with Lisa's article. Why should she be any different? Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 02:21, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
Well, Mike Pence's current job (VP) is listed at the top, and his former job (Governor of Indiana) is listed under that. The same is true with her successor, Heather Wilson, her current job (SecAf) list first, former job (University President) listed second. Pretty simple, I would say. --rogerd (talk) 03:24, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
No, that's not who/what I'm talking about. See Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Rodney Frelinghuysen, and Jason Chaffetz, and many more. Their oldest and primary job is listed below the others. The Acting Secretary was her newest title so it should go on top. Pretty simple, I would say. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:06, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, in each of the examples you cited, the job at the top of the list that person is currently holding that job. I don't see a precedent for listing a former job over a current job.--rogerd (talk) 04:37, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── My point is, even when they end those chairmanships, they will still be listed in that order because they are the most recent job title they had... which means that the senator or representative box is still at the bottom. Even though Lisa was Acting Secretary, she was still the Under Secretary ao the acting stays on top because it was her most recent job title that changed.

  • Now I feel bad about this... I had no clue you were an admin! Smiley emoticons doh.gifCorkythehornetfan (ping me) 00:24, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
@Corkythehornetfan: No reason to. Being an admin is no big deal. I don't like to throw that around. Civil content disagreements are normal. In this case I decided that both of us had valid points and it wasn't worth pursuing anymore. --rogerd (talk) 01:30, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
I know, but the template message would not have happened had I known this... just a simple comment! Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 01:41, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Changing the order of the schools in Kentucky–Louisville rivalry[edit]

Sorry for the trouble just messing around with it a bit. Thought it sounded better Louisville -Kentucky because of Louisville, KY. But the main thing I was just trying to fix is the image for UofL. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alex22406 (talkcontribs) 19:51, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Infobox photo[edit]

Greetings and thanks for your earlier comments regarding the 737 infobox photo. There has been a suggestion to show an earlier model photo, and a 3/4 image has been found (i.e. more than a side view, as suggested). If you have any further opinions on those photos the discussion is here: Talk:Boeing_737#Proposal_for_737_Original_photo. Regards SynergyStar (talk) 21:31, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
