Advice[edit]

If you want to make a list of elements appear as a list, put an asterisk (*) in front of each item. That will create a bulleted list.

Also, if you are making lists of communities, please put them in alphabetical order. --Orlady (talk) 16:52, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Your new articles, etc.[edit]

It looks like you've been busy today! It's nice to see these topics covered by the addition of new articles, but there are some issues with the articles you created. I've done some partial cleanup on a couple of your articles, but I hope you will handle the other improvements that are needed.

  • First off, your articles are unreferenced. Wikipedia's credibility depends on citations to reliable sources (see WP:Verifiability). You and I may be very knowledgable about the topics we write articles about, but our personal knowledge is not verifiable, so we need to supply verifiable references. Please add sources to your articles.
  • Bulletized lists may be included in articles, but the general idea is to provide information in the form of text (sentences and paragraphs). I edited the Lutts, Tennessee article to put the content into more of a text format, as well as to address some other issues (see below). Along the lines of providing text, instead of simply giving the name of the school that used to be in Lutts, an encyclopedia article ought to tell about its history (when did it open? when did it close and why? what grade levels did it cover? etc.).
  • Identify categories for your articles, and list them at the bottom of the page. See my changes to the Lutts article for an example of this.
  • Wikipedia's Manual of Style has guidelines for many aspects of article editing. For example, in headings within articles, only the first word and proper nouns should be capitalized. I've edited some of your headings.
  • Tiny subsections should be avoided in articles.

For some examples of what well-developed articles about unincorporated Tennessee communities can look like, I suggest that you look at Butler, Tennessee, Randolph, Tennessee, and Nameless, Tennessee. Look through Category:State highways in Tennessee for examples of content and format for articles about state highways.

Thank you for your contributions. Here's to making them better! --Orlady (talk) 22:02, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Houston, Tennessee Snow (1-7-2010).jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Houston, Tennessee Snow (1-7-2010).jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:33, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Frank Hughes College[edit]

Hi Tonybowlingjr! I just came across the article Frank Hughes College created by you. This is just a suggestion, but can you create an article on Frank Hughes School and make the college a sub-topic in it? It would be more convenient as the current article is very short. If you have any queries, you can ask me on my talk page. Cheers! Avs_Dps (talk) 15:31, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Even the Man in the Moon Is Cryin, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Compilation, Tony Brown and Doug Johnson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
