Looking good. Sorry I'm not helping you, but I'm really lame in history. -Mariano 10:54, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

no problem, I'm enjoying it. On the other hand, I need some help creating bio-stubs of the people named. Some are actually not really important, but having that red link gets on my nerves. Some *must* be here! Like Las Heras, Soler, Paso, and lots of people which have lots of streets named after them XD. SpiceMan 14:18, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

Oh, man, I know more about the streets than about these guys! I'm not such a big fan of really-short-stubs-only-to-avoid-red-links because they give you the false sensation that everything is done when actually these links are as good as red, but I'll try to do something about perhaps some important one. (I'm currently trying to find time to expand the provincs, which are right now also as good as red links. Good wiking! Mariano 07:34, 1 August 2005 (UTC)

'Irish' by itself links to the disambiguation page. I'd choose something more specific to link to. Franzeska 23:48, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

San Martin and the native americans => San Martin and the Native Americans. And a question: how do we call the South American aborigines? In the English language, "Native American" can be confusing, because many people think America is two continents (the Americas), etc. (They may be wrong, but this is not the issue here). I would go with Aborigines. elpincha 01:32, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Bad idea[edit]

If you really want to achieve "featured article" status, your editing would be put into the article itself, for review by other editors, rather than just lying stagnant on your personal page for several months. That status rarely results from a one-man show. Keep your own verson on your user pages if you like, and playing around with it for a couple of days before posting it to the article is okay.

Hint: degree Celsius. Gene Nygaard 11:40, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi. You may want to delink the categories in your working page (e.g. by putting a colon before 'Category:') so they don't show up in the actual category (e.g. in Category:Argentine people and Category:History of South America). Cheers, Ziggurat 23:24, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Hi again. I've deactivated them for you seeing as they've been in those cats for more than a couple of months now. If/when you return this to the namespace, you can reactivate them by removing the colon before "Category". Cheers, Ziggurat 21:12, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
