NRHP dab pages needed or cleanup needed, in 2009[edit]

I moved the Brookline one and started Roughwood disambiguation page. Included the PA one as "Roughwood (Devon, Pennsylvania)". But, I don't see it on Chester county NRHP list. Is it in another county? doncram (talk) 20:14, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Per Nyttend's preference, I started article as Roughwood (Easttown Township, Pennsylvania), linked from National Register of Historic Places listings in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and updated the Roughwood disambiguation page to reflect that. Done. doncram (talk) 14:30, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

NRHP disambiguation exceptions[edit]

For the most part, disambiguation of NRHP names is accomplished by adding (City-type location, State) after the name of a place, using the City-type location provided by the NRHP's NRIS system. In some cases, perhaps many in Pennsylvania in particular, editors are judging that article titles are better with some other name. I really don't want to set up an unnecessary bureaucracy, but it seems best to me to try to list some of these and see if it helps for maintenance of disambiguation pages or other purposes, to have them listed here. Call this a trial. doncram (talk) 22:17, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

  1. Roughwood. NRIS based name: Roughwood (Devon, Pennsylvania), possibly preferred name Roughwood (Easttown Township, Pennsylvania), should appear in National Register of Historic Places listings in Chester County, Pennsylvania, related dab Roughwood. But i don't see it in the Chester County list. Not sure of preferred name; possibly preferred name is a redirect now. doncram (talk) 22:17, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

NRHP dab needing cleanup category[edit]

The pages in Category:NRHP dab needing cleanup are disambiguation pages that include National Register of Historic Places listings and that require some cleanup. In general disambiguation pages contain essentially only links to other Wikipedia page. These ones have some or all links to places that are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and at least some of those entries need cleanup.

Cleanup is required to meet Wikipedia's disambiguation page quality standards. Note, any NRHP place is documented and usually deemed wikipedia-notable. Note red-link NRHP entries are permitted by MOS:DABRL and should be retained, but red-link entries should be edited to include a blue-link to a relevant state-, county- or other list of NRHPs having the same red-link. MOS:DABRL explicitly allows red-links, but MOSDAB usually requires one blue-link for each red-link entry. See this extended past discussion at WikiProject Disambiguation.

Disambiguation pages are added to Category:NRHP dab needing cleanup by placing the {{NRHP dab needing cleanup}} template on the page itself. An article may also be assessed as "disambiguation-class" by WikiProject National Register of Historic Places by including "|class=Disambig" in a wp:NRHP template on the talk page of the disambiguation article.

General notes and reminders[edit]

Please help by creating pages, then cross them off the list when completed.

  • "Old" or "Historic" or "The" entries - If a place starts with any of these words, it should be added to the appropriate disambiguation page
    • e.g., Old Blake House should be entered onto the Blake House disambiguation page
  • Spelling Redirects
    • For disambiguation entries with "theater" in their name, create a redirect with the spelling of "theatre", and vice versa
    • Any entry with "US" in its name (for United States) should have two other redirects as appropriate. There should be a "US" page, a "U.S." page, and a "U. S." page. Whichever spelling is for the main article, there should be redirects with the other two spellings
  • Please add the following text to the subject line when creating disambiguation pages, to help make more people aware of this project.
    • Disambig page style repair: ([[Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places|you can help!]])
