College Football Project[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you have edited a College football related article. You may be interested to know that there is a college football WikiProject which you can join if you like. We would love to have you! --Mecu 01:59, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Wilson American football.jpg

Hi, and welcome to the College football Wikiproject! We are a group of editors who love college football and work to improve Wikipedia's coverage of this sport.

There are a variety of interesting things to do within the project; you're free to participate however much—or little—you like:

If you have any ideas you would like to share or if there is any way your fellow college football fans can help you, please feel free to ask on the project talk page.

USS Izard (DD-589)[edit]

Hi. You changed "On 18 December 1944, she was caught in the Typhoon of 1944, but survived." to the less specific "At one point, she sailed through the eyewall of a Pacific storm that had 50 knot winds." Was the storm misidentified?
—wwoods 17:38, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Yes thanks, my father was a quartermaster on the Izard (and is now 80 years old). I had queried him earlier about the typhoon that he had said they were in and so had earlier added the mention of it. We got together this weekend to see "Flags of Our Fathers", the movie about the Battle of Iwo Jima that the Izard was a part of. The movie spurred his recollection of various details. He had also been to an Izard crew reunion recently in Ohio. As part of this discussion, I asked him about the typhoon. He said that it was not the typhoon that had sunk the ships, but instead was a smaller storm with 50 knot winds that they had sailed through the eye of. He was unclear on the date. He also recalled the detail that he had joined the Izard in mid-late March at Pearl, so I added that detail. Brholden 18:59, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Fisk Johnson[edit]

Thanks for the help getting something quick and dirty up on Fisk Johnson. Do you know how to get his birthplace, year and the years of his degres? TonyTheTiger 00:17, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

  • You are welcome - I was surprised that the article was just a stub given that he is on the Forbes 400 list. The dates of his degrees are listed in the press release at: http://www.scjohnson.com/family/fam_pre_pre_news.asp?art_id=151 His age and "hometown" are listed in the Forbes 400 link - you could put his birthdate as "circa 1958". He should also go on the Cornell people page given that he is an emeritus trustee and a CEO. Brholden 00:26, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

SC Johnson Brands[edit]

I have editted Wikipedia:Categories_for_deletion/Log/2006_November_28#Category:S.C._Johnson_brands to make the debate decision clear. Now how does one actually get the category moved. TonyTheTiger 17:53, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Moving the category is easy, you just change all of entries one by one to the new name and add a new category. I assume (but don't know) that one of the admins will actually remove the old category entry once the change is done. However it could also be left pointing to the new one. As I said in the entry, while I have a preference for "SC", I am OK with any of the three choices ("S.C.", "S. C.", or "SC") - since there wasn't a clear consensus on the discussion and no entrenched positions, go ahead and choose your favorite. Brholden 20:08, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Flagrant foul[edit]

I see you have done quite a bit of sports editting. Would you take a look at a stub I wrote for Flagrant fouls. TonyTheTiger 17:53, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Nice page - I trimmed it up and generalized it to other sports. Brholden 20:08, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

SAP Open[edit]

Thanks for helping me with the SAP Open. Greenhitsuper

You are welcome - thanks for all of your entries as well. The page was pitifully small before! The tournament has an historic past which seems to have been almost lost. Brholden 22:11, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes it did look a bit small, how did you get all the information before 1970 tho. Greenhitsuper

By searching in the archives of the New York Times. They have their whole record back to 1851. Regular subscribers get to see 100 old articles per month. I put the links to the abstracts of the articles at the bottom. Brholden 22:32, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Is it ok if you let me do the men's doubles please because i can do them up to 1970. Greenhitsuper

Sounds great (no need to ask!) - also I notice that the 1972 men's singles is missing, if you have it Brholden 22:51, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

I can't find any information about the 1972 championships anywhere. Greenhitsuper

Found it in the NYT archive, it was in Albany, CA that year for some reason and Conners beat Tanner. Brholden 22:59, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Who will be editing the page. Greenhitsuper

Thanks for editing the 1972 men's singles championship. Greenhitsuper

Nice work for doing most of the SAP Open, with part of it done with me. Greenhitsuper

Thanks and thanks for your help - it has been a treat reading the old NYT articles Brholden 21:16, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

I am always on the look-out for roads editors! I see you added the N56; could you do an article on it?! Regards (Sarah777 09:59, 2 June 2007 (UTC))

Sure - I've been working on quite a few Donegal topics. Brholden 16:14, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Arno B. Cammerer[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up Arno B. Cammerer. People tend to think that I want all unreferenced articles claiming no notability to be deleted . . . in fact, I only want all unattended unreferenced articles claiming no notability to be deleted, and much prefer it when someone conscientious like you does some work on it. I tend to spend considerably more effort on identifying problems than fixing them, but that approach is of very limited use without people like you. Cheers.

"The financial community sometimes refers to companies or economic sectors that rise early after an economic downturn as "Crocuses" in reference to the flower's ability to thrive in the late winter or early spring."

Proposed deletion of FRF.12[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article FRF.12 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (software) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back. Thank you. This proposed deletion was started by User:Piotrus

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. – Fayenatic London 14:11, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete.

It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain, search engine, pinboard, aggregator, or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

August Kutzbock[edit]

Way back on 4 December 2007, you added information to the article on Evansville, Wisconsin, naming August Kutzbock as the architect or designer of the Evansville Seminary. I have recently been making additions to the August Kutzbock category page in Wikimedia, including the Seminary. But now I've noticed that an online article about the Seminary doesn't mention Kutzbock and names other individuals as the designers and builders. <http://evansvillehistory.net/EvansvilleSeminary.html> says this about the original red-brick building (1856-57): "Only a few of those who worked on the building were named in histories of the school. Jacob West's son, James R. West designed the building and also served as a carpenter. James West and George Murphy installed the first floor timbers, made the doors and window frames. Alan S. Baker, who would later become a prominent manufacturer, sawed the decorative brackets that supported the over-hanging eaves of the building. Baker was paid three dollars a month and his board as compensation for his work." And about the cream-brick addition (built 20 years after Kutzbock's 1868 death), it states: "By 1888, the funds had been raised and a white brick building was constructed. William Libby was the carpenter-contractor. Libby's sons worked on the project with their father. Isaac Brink did the mason work." Any additional information you could provide on the Kutzbock attribution would be much appreciated! --Jdsteakley (talk) 09:39, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
