  20. Awards (Did You Know, Featured Picture, Barnstars, Good Article)


Thanks for the new picture! I plan on expanding List of Green Bay Packers stadiums in the near future, but I wanted to get it into the project space sooner. I am glad to see that you are still around and editing! Hope all is well! « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 02:09, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

I was pleasantly surprised to see you back! No matter if it's long-term or short-term, a good solid hand is always welcome. I'm doing fine and I hope that you are too. I mainly have discretionary time to upload images and not enough to do much article work. I went on too many excellent long vacations to get all of the images up. Cheers!

Cup Series[edit]

Should most of the articles with Sprint Cup Series in the name be move protected until January 1 to prevent a premature move once the new sponsor is announced (i.e. Sprint Cup Series, List of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions)? – Nascar1996 (talkcont) 16:23, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

I'd say no. It's a low risk and can easily be undone. Royalbroil 02:06, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Picture (FoxRiverMouthOshkosh.jpg)[edit]

Was this taken from the old Pioneer Inn? I used to stay there as a kid. Great pic! Matt (talk) 22:39, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't remember exactly where I took that image. It was almost 10 years ago! Royalbroil 03:56, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Old World Wisconsin[edit]

Would you happen to have any photos from Old World Wisconsin? I am working on a building list similar to what is in the Heritage Hill and Wade House articles and there really seems to be a dearth of images in commons. I may have to take my wife there and spend a day photographing the buildings. There are a LOT of buildings. I need to do some newpaper search and expand the history section also. Pretty sad article. Nyth63 03:34, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

I should have photographs of every building from my last visit on August 6, 2013. I may have skipped some outhouses and the like but I have most. It's worth spending a day there! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Royalbroil 02:12, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
I have been there a couple of times in the past but it has probably been about 10 years since my last visit. I am thinking about visiting again with my wife. I just moved over my first draft of the table from my sandbox to the article. So far I have the three NRHP buildings and about 5 more buildings with profiles from WHS. How much effort would it be for you to upload some of those pictures? Could you start with filling in the 5 or so buildings I don't have pictures for? There was an Old World Wisconsin category in commons already. I had to find a few of the photos and add that category to them. There may be other photos from there in commons somewhere that I have not found yet. There are SO many buildings there I was thinking that it take a while to finish it so any help would be appreciated. I am looking for suggestions on what default sort order to put the building in as strictly alphabetical would be rather confusing because of the way the buildings are grouped by area at the site. I have an extra column I named 'Village' than I felt would be helpful. Nyth63 12:13, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
I uploaded several images and I have MANY more. While I found a site map, it is incomplete and somewhat cumbersome. So I'm not always certain which image corresponds to which building. I love the village column. I suggest sorting by village then secondary sort by structure name. Royalbroil 02:32, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I have been looking at google maps trying to figure it out. There are some street views in the park so that is helpful. I will be visting on Monday with my wife. Anything I should get pictures of besides outhouses? Nyth63 00:09, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm excited for you! I'm sure that you'll have a great time. A fair weather day for sure. I should have photographs of the main buildings but I can't say for sure. I don't know exactly what I have since I don't have a map available. Would you email me the map that they give to you? I'd photograph the secondary buildings for sure. If you did notice that I had uploaded a photograph with the wrong name, I could fix it at Commons. Royalbroil 18:29, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I found another map online here that may be a little helpful. Google street view may be able to help you match a photo with a building location but it won't tell you what the name is. Those rather cartoonish/artsy maps kind of annoy me. Probably because I have some background in surveying and GIS systems. Really annoying that the north is towards the bottom of the map. I will let you know how things turn out tomorrow. I am thinking about asking around if a curator or someone like that is around that may be able to supply a detailed list of the all the structures. Have to be careful not to annoy the wife too much though with a busman's holiday. Nyth63 00:34, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
I just added a pre-1976 history to the article and I would welcome your review. Nyth63 01:57, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

I have some pictures that I took of the detail maps on some of the plaques around the park. How do you want me to send them to you? Nyth63 18:39, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Would you email them to me through the "Email this user" tool on the left side of this page? If that don't work, I think your email address will show up in an email to me and I'd reply back with my email address. I photographed some of the plaques when I was there which has proven to be quite helpful. RoyalbroilAlt 15:05, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Template:Protected areas of Wisconsin[edit]

I was looking at the Heritage Hill State Historical Park article and noticed the protected area template at the bottom. I was going to add it to the OWW article but noticed that site is not included in the template. I noticed that Wade house in not there either. Do I presume that it is because they are run by the WHS? This seems odd that for such similar sites both run by state agencies that one should be included but not the other. Are you aware if there has been a past discussion about including all the WHS sites in that template? Nyth63 18:11, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't remember any discussions. Seems like correctly a long overdue oversight. I think it would be uncontroversial to add a section Wisconsin Historical Society sites to the template (be bold comes to mind). You could start a section at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Wisconsin just to be safe. I suppose it would be healthy to have a real discussion there once anyhow! Royalbroil 02:33, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Bold it is. Added group to template and then added the template to the articles. We'll see if anyone objects. Nyth63 23:43, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
