2016 CWRU Art&STEM+Feminism Edit-a-Thon[edit]

Case Western's Kelvin Smith Library will be hosting an edit-a-thon on 5 March (11:00-5:00), and I'm looking for a local wikipedian to help out. By chance, would you be interested or know someone who may be? LBonds (talk) 20:11, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I would be glad to help out! - Tim1965 (talk) 21:36, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks so much, Tim! Here's our meetup page: Wikipedia:Meetup/Cleveland/ArtAndSTEMAndFeminism 2016 Let me know if you need any additional information. LBonds (talk) 15:18, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

This article needs help[edit]

  • Yeesh... That's an awful article; it's not about the Hill, but about a bunch of Native American reservations nearby and the establishment of the Rocky Boy Reservation. My understanding about Hill 57 is limited. I know that the hill is called Hill 57 because it was used for hillside advertising for "Heinz 57" ketchup. The Native Americans who lived on Hill 57 were a mix of Cree, Chippewa, Métis, and mixed-background (ancestors belonging to all tribes, and to none). They vacated the site when the Rocky Boy reservation was established for them. The hill is used as the launching site for the annual Independence Day events in Great Falls. That's about it... I'll see what I might do. - Tim1965 (talk) 16:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Wow! Awesome repair job! Montanabw(talk)|GO THUNDER! 07:36, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I've got some more to do, but I'm NOT educated at all about Cree, Métis, or Ojibwe history, and so will need some time to get some books through ILL and time to read them before I expand the section on the Native American presence any further. I've also got some thinking to do about that section. The article needs to be about the hill, not about the Little Shell Band or landless Indians. So I've got to do some thinking and drafting of potential text to see how it should come out. I wish GFPL offered online access to the Tribune or Leader archives. They don't offer Leader stuff at all, and only offer full-text Tribune back to 2002. That completely sucks. (Can I just say that I hate hate hate what Gannett has done to the Trib?) - Tim1965 (talk) 16:09, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
We also have a discussion that is kind of fizzled for lack of worker bees about merging Little Shell Chippewa and Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana. There is no way to avoid a lot of research, I'm pretty good on IPNA stuff in general, but for the specific tribes, I have to hit the books. The Montana Historical Society DOES have some newspaper archives, and I think they loan microfilm too, so... [1] Also ask KingJeff1970 for help, he can probably point you to resources; Montana History Wiki is actually pretty decent and meets most of the RS criteria.

There's also the Little Shell Pembina Band of North America (also known as the Little Shell Band of Chippewa Indians of North Dakota), based in North Dakota. They're a militia group founded by the Delorme family[2] (especially footnotes 6 and 7). They appear to be both a militia group and a criminal enterprise using the Little Shell fight for recognition as a cover for their own nefarious activities. I see that the militia group has already been conflated with the existing, state-recognized Little Shell tribe and with the Turtle Mountain tribe. - Tim1965 (talk) 23:56, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Oh great, that's probably crap that needs to be removed. Montanabw(talk) 22:56, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

DC Style Point[edit]

Hi, I've really appreciated your contributions, in particular Washington Marriott Marquis, which is stunning in its detail. Anyway, there was a discussion about how to refer to DC's legislative body, and it is the Council of the District of Columbia, not the city council. You can see the discussion here. I corrected in a couple articles. Thanks! Bangabandhu (talk) 21:14, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

  • So here's my take: The Council itself argues that there is no "city" of Washington any more. Legally, after the merger of the County of Washington, Georgetown, and the City of Washington, there was only "the District of Columbia". The form of government of the District is a mayor-council. Therefore, the government's name is the "Government of the District of Columbia"; the executive's title is "Mayor of the District of Columbia" and the correct, legal name of the legislature is the "Council of the District of Columbia". Which is all right and fine and legal. But nearly everyone refers to the place as "Washington, D.C." The place is almost always referred to as a city, not a district. News media routinely refer to the government of the place as the "City Council" or "D.C. City Council". This argument is similar to the argument over whether Virginia is a commonwealth or a state. Virginia refers to itself as a commonwealth, but the U.S. Supreme Court has said that term has no meaning in the American legal sytem; Virginia, the court says, is a state. And almost everyone refers to Virginia as a state, not a commonwealth. To my mind, it is half-a dozen of one, six of the other as to whether it's "Council of the District of Columbia" or "Washington, D.C., City Council". For categories, I favor the former; for text in the encyclopedia, I favor the latter. - Tim1965 (talk) 19:35, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
I understand the comparison to VA, but its not analogous. With any jurisdiction, there's federal, state, and local/city authorities. The commonwealth is equivalent to state level of government, so its reasonable those would be used interchangeably. With the DC Council, it has local authority, but there's no intermediate jurisdiction between it and the federal level. Of course the DC Council can't be called a state council (not yet, anyway), but it's not precise to call it a city council, either, because its operates at a level higher than the local level. Calling it the District Council makes the most sense. News organizations are coming around and this will soon be consensus, I expect. See the WCP style guide.

Robert White[edit]

Excellent work on the Robert White page. I had written a page on White about a day before you did, but yours is substantially better. I merged the two pages, retaining virtually all of your content, into one page. Thanks again. ~ Quacks Like a Duck (talk) 21:33, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Oh, awesome. I checked for an article yesterday when I started working on mine, but didn't see one. And when I finished mine, yours had gone online in the interim! LOL!!! - Tim1965 (talk) 21:37, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
