Here is the discussion you are looking for I believe. Maybe User:Scott5114 can make the SVG versions of the shields for you or maybe you know how to do it. If not, let me know and I'll revert the PNGs and put them back. -Nv8200p talk 01:09, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Merge of Warm water port

Hi. I agree with your proposal to merge Warm water port into the main Port article, and have outlined my reasoning at the Port talk page.

However, I think the merge should be to "Port" not "Seaport" as Seaport is a redirect only. I have changed the merge tag - if you really did mean Seaport let me know. Euryalus (talk) 06:19, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Tom Peterson says it time for Oregon COTW

Wake up! Wake up to a happy day! Says Tom Peterson. Greetings to the gang at WP:ORE, its time for another round of Collaboration of the Week. Last week was a very successful endeavor with great improvement to Oregon Swallowtail and Deuce Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. OK, so there’s no “e” but it makes me laugh. The Biglow production was so successful we got our first DYK out of it. So, let’s try for a second with the tallest building in the state, the Wells Fargo Center. Then by request we have the former governor (among other things) Neil Goldschmidt. Again, to opt out or suggest future collaborative efforts, visit here.

Medford people

If you would like to join the stalled conversation at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Oregon#Oregon cities proposal. If we adopted this as consensus guideline for WP:ORE then you wouldn’t have to ask about people like Andy. You could delete any red linked person and point to the rule, saving the time of trying to see if someone is notable/a hoax etc. and doing so with some level of authority. But that’s the proposal, so if you have other thoughts, let us know. Medford and Bend are the two main cities where I see this come up a lot. Aboutmovies (talk) 02:55, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. I will add my comments over there. Zab (talk) 04:22, 12 February 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for starting the Kicker (Oregon tax rebate) article, it was about time! -Pete (talk) 16:33, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Clown COTW

Greetings once again to members of the best encyclopedia online about Oregon (aka WP:ORE)! Last week we improved Neil Goldschmidt to close to GA level, and moved the Wells Fargo Center from Stub to Start for the Collaboration of the Week. This week we’re clowning around with some bozo from Oregon, Pinto Colvig, and then in an attempt to garner another DYK, the rather stubby Cooper Spur. As always, any contribution is appreciated, and to opt out of these messages visit here.

As we have quite a few new members over the last six months, I’ll make another pitch for our various subprojects. Listed here, you will find a variety of groups focused on specific areas of Oregon from transportation to culture. Not only can you sign up and coordinate work there, but each often has useful sources and templates related to that topic. No pressure, just an introduction to those new to the project. Adios.

At last, an honorable pirate!

Our weekly COTW message from WPOR

Welcome to another wonderful world of WP:ORE COTW. Thanks again to those who lent a hand improving Pinto Colvig and Cooper Spur ski area this past week or so. This week we return to the High importance Stubs, with the mighty Seal of Oregon and former governor and legal superstar Sylvester Pennoyer. To opt out of these messages, or suggest an article, swing by here. Or to stop receiving any WPORE messages just remove your name from the list of members at WP:ORE. Auf Wiedersehen.

Unhelpful bitey response

Very bitey. Not good. --Tagishsimon (talk) 20:46, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I realized that right away but the damage was done. For some reason I remember that template as being a little nicer than that. I was writing an apology for his talk page as I got your message and will be done with it soon. Zab (talk) 20:55, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
