References needed for Amity Regional High School[edit]

Information.svg Your recent contribution(s) to the Wikipedia article Amity Regional High School are very much appreciated. However, you did not provide references or sources for your information. Keeping Wikipedia accurate and verifiable is very important, and as you might be aware there is currently a drive to improve the quality of Wikipedia by encouraging editors to cite the sources they used when adding content. If sources are left unreferenced, it may count as original research, which is not allowed. Can you provide in the article specific references to any books, articles, websites or other reliable sources that will allow people to verify the content in the article? You can use a citation method listed at How to cite sources. Thanks! • Gene93k (talk) 20:20, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey there, just to chime in, I saw your recent edit on Farmington High School. This, too needs a citation/ref. Without one, it could easily be challenged and removed. To have an easy way to format a reference, go to 'my preferences' (upper left corner), --> gadgets (I think) and enable RefTools. IceUnshattered (talk) 15:42, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Ireland[edit]

While your last edit included a good update of the map, Northern Ireland doesn't use that flag as its official flag, its been abolished. Could you please remove it? Ty. 78.16.215.157 (talk) 15:18, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

I guess this is why there is {{flag|Northern Ireland|union}} --Waltloc (talk) 22:48, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Antarctic Islands[edit]

Hi, just to let you know, the Antarctic Treaty means that we can't outright assert that any island in Antarctica belongs to any specific country - rather that it falls within that country's Antarctic claim. Very few countries recognise others' claims to the Antarctic and no country maintains effective control of any part of Antarctic outside their own bases. It is better to explain the situation in the text, rather than asserting sovereignty of one or more claimants in the infobox. Pfainuk talk 10:13, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

PS - there's a discussion about this here. Pfainuk talk 10:20, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for adding a map to the Kings Peak article. It looks really good. I am going to add that to the mountain articles I watch. --Glennfcowan (talk) 01:06, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Please add a summary for your edits[edit]

Hi. Great job you are doing in adding the pushpin maps to various mountain articles. It would be highly beneficial to myself and others who watch for changes to mountain articles that you provide an edit summary when saving your changes. Thanks. RedWolf (talk) 06:01, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Flagicons[edit]

Hi. It's great you are adding infoboxes and pushpin maps to the articles. I just wanted to bring to your attention the MOS:ICON guideline that specifies the usage of icons. I'd ask you to refrain from adding flagicons, as you did for example in the article K2, as they are in contrast with the Help the reader rather than decorate principle. Thanks and have a great time contributing here. --Eleassar my talk 16:47, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

I agree that adding flagicons to articles amounts to decoration - I did not do this to K2. However, I do not agree that adding flagicons to infoboxes is decoration. Many infoboxes ([1] for example) automatically convert the country name to a flagicon. In my opinion, the purpose of an infobox is to help the reader - by using a little bit of decoration (ie pushpin maps and flagicons). --Waltloc (talk) 22:45, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Midzhur[edit]

Greetings! I see that you have put a map of Serbia in the article of Midzhur but the very peak itself is within the borders of Bulgaria so it would be much better to use that map or a map highlighting both countries. Will you be able to make that change? Best, --Gligan (talk) 14:46, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Sure - how does Midzhur look now? --Waltloc (talk) 22:36, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
It's perfect, thank you very much :):):). Regards, --Gligan (talk) 07:27, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

List of countries by highest point[edit]

Can you provide a verifiable source in support of your claim that in Botswana, Monanalong is higher than Otse? Analysis of SRTM data suggests (albeit does not prove) otherwise. Viewfinder (talk) 21:35, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

I was referring to Peakbagger, who claim that Monanalong is 1494 m [2], while Otse is 1489 [3]. Also, [4] says that "The highest 3" SRTM cell in Botswana appears to be on Monalanong Hill, in the SE of the country, 1494m at 24°50'27"N, 25°39'54"E, but there are other nearby competing high points, Otse and Kanye, that are within the SRTM error margin.[11]" --Waltloc (talk) 22:24, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

OK. The misquotes page, which is mine and may be the source of the peakbagger information, should have been updated following a closer look. THere was further discussion about this, and from this it was concluded that Otse was the highest, and this was placed on Wikipedia, but unfortuntely the misquotes page was not updated. Viewfinder (talk) 23:17, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Dear Waltloc. Your enthusiastic edit is appreciated. I hope you keep doing this in the future. However I agree with Viewfinder. Two years ago we discussed about this very topic and concluded that the HP of Botswana is most probably the Otse Hill - but there is no clear evidence to prove this supremacy yet. So my opinion is that it is better to provide this information as a possibility rather than a proven fact. I also removed Viewfinder's page as a reference to avoid further fierce discussion as it happened on the talk page of the List of countries by highest point article. (I hope Viewfinder agrees with it.) Kószab (talk)

Rennell Island[edit]

Hello,

Just curious about the pushpin map you added for Rennell Island The map is of PNG but Rennell Island is South of Honiara, Solomon Islands. YOur map doesnt show Rennell Island at all.

Just thought you might want to know

Great article![edit]

Hey, your new article on Usonia Homes is wonderful. I enjoyed reading it. Keep up the great work! Ecoleetage (talk) 03:06, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Photos of FLW buildings in Milwaukee[edit]

I couldn't believe there were no pics of the Annunciation Church. I've uploaded all the pics I have, at the moment, but plan to go out again if the weather is decent. That one's at the top of my list, and I'll see what I can do about the other. There's a long list of pics that need taking. It's like a scavenger hunt. :-) -Freekee (talk) 17:53, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Pics are up. I added a pic to the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church article, and wrote an article with pic on American System-Built Homes (there was one there before, but it only mentioned the houses in Chicago). -Freekee (talk) 01:25, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for expanding the article a bit. I was hoping to get it featured on DYK, but I think it's going to need another paragraph. I left a question for you on the talk page. -Freekee (talk) 01:20, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
That book you referenced by Storrer? Would you be able to attach that to any specific pieces of info in the article? Apparently, inline refs are the way to go, if at all possible. -Freekee (talk) 18:11, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

DYK for American System-Built Homes[edit]

Updated DYK query On May 5, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article American System-Built Homes, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Photos of FLW buildings in Madison[edit]

Nice shots of the Robert M. Lamp House and the Eugene A. Gilmore House. By any chance do you have any photos of the John C. Pew House (3650 Lake Mendota Drive), Eugene Van Tamelen House (5817 Anchorage Rd) or the Walter Rudin House (110 Martinette Trail)? --Waltloc (talk) 16:03, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words. Sorry, I've never visited those three. One friend of mine here in Madison is a big FLW devotee, and he tells me that I missed an excellent tour a month ago that would have given me an opportunity to see more than I have to date. Apparently not all of the three you name are readily accessible. Well, I will just have to see what is possible. Jdsteakley (talk) 16:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Dee Anthony[edit]

Updated DYK query On November 5, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Dee Anthony, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Have you a better map?[edit]

Way back when, here, you added a map at Stewart Island/Rakiura. It had a superceded name of the island which did not include the name Rakiura. Have you a later map, or can you amend the name on the map you inserted? Moriori (talk) 20:39, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 01:11, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
