Hudspeth County CourthouseEdit

Thank you for your assessment of the article Hudspeth County Courthouse. I believed I had completed the article as best I could with the info I had available when I submitted it for assessment. Then I went to bed for the night before having an "oh, duh!" moment when I realized I didn't include describing in text the site's various historical designations with citations. I have since added a small paragraph updating that info since it is central to the article's scope. I don't know whether that would influence your assessment any further. Fortguy (talk) 03:52, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for creating the article! I assessed it as C-class, meaning *at least C-class*; really, it's probably a B. I'll reassess it. Good work!-Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 12:34, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Bryanrutherford - I am glad that someone finally got around to rating the Martin Gardner page. I noticed that you rated the page High-importance in WikiProject Skepticism. I certainly concur.

I agree with all the other ratings. Thank you for your consistently professional work in WP.--Toploftical (talk) 16:39, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Administration buildingsEdit

Thank you for creating Hugh Roy and Lillie Cullen Building! I have been thinking of creating Category:Academic administration buildings, for the campus buildings where presidents/provosts/deans have their offices. Do you think this is a good idea and would this be the right way to call them?Zigzig20s (talk) 12:44, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

@Zigzig20s:: Sure, I think that's reasonable; there are certainly plenty of such buildings that already have their own articles here, and I don't see a similar competing category that already serves the same purpose. It looks to me like virtually all of the notable academic administration buildings on Wikipedia are specifically *university administration buildings*; are you thinking that there will also be a significant number of secondary or primary school administration buildings ending up in your category? If not, I might change the name to Category:University administration buildings. Some good places to start filling in your category will be the listed entries at List of Old Main buildings, Main Hall, Administration Building, and Main Building. Cheers! -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 13:58, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, please create it! I have not gone through the rankings--do the top 100 universities all have articles for their administration buildings for starters?Zigzig20s (talk) 14:27, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Whoops, here it is: Category:University and college administration buildings! If you see a number of primary or secondary school administrations building articles, then we could make a broader category (such as your proposed Category:Academic administration buildings) to contain them, as well as the existing post-secondary admin building category.-Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 18:08, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Good find. I don't think the Harvard one is categorized, is it? That's what gave me the idea in the first place.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:20, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
I'll go through and check the ones I can find; it looks like some are instead categorized under Category:University and college academic buildings in the United States.-Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 18:46, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
That should be a subcategory.Zigzig20s (talk) 19:29, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
There are only two subcategories for specific universities at Category:University and college academic buildings in the United States. I'm surprised that is the case. Do similar categories not exist, or are they categorized somewhere else?Zigzig20s (talk) 08:53, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Here's another problematic category: Category:University of Maryland, College Park facilities.Zigzig20s (talk) 11:04, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
And Category:University and college campuses in the United States. So it's a mess between buildings, facilities and campuses...Zigzig20s (talk) 13:19, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
I've added all the buildings on those lists that weren't previously categorized to either Category:University and college administration buildings or Category:University and college academic buildings in the United States, based on my best guess as to whether they are currently used to hold administrative functions or not; for now, I've also added that College Park category to the "academic buildings" category, pending a clearer idea of what the overall structure should be. It looks as though relatively few universities have articles about many of their buildings, and the ones that do tend to have the a category like this Maryland one, named for the "facilities" or "campus" rather than buildings.

THC as publisher for NRHP docs that they publishEdit

Thank you for your edits adding NRHP information, including links to NRHP documents that you've found from THC. I myself have been painfully using the National Archives versions of NRHP documents, which are very slow downloading, and i need to get up to speed using THC instead. However, one small thing is that your edits, e.g. this one for Cambridge Tower, are asserting that the NRHP documents are published by the National Park Service. The ones you link to are published by THC and I think THC should be stated as publisher. By the way, i do credit the National Archives for publishing their ones that I link to. In most other states, crediting NPS as publisher is routine, because they are indeed the source for the docs there. Anyhow, thanks for what you have been doing! Cheers, --Doncram (talk) 00:40, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Silesian Wars A class reviewEdit

It's good. Could you look at the article War of Bavarian Succession-- it contains a extended description of the problems of the Pragmatic Sanction and some of this may be helpful for you in explaining the conditions that led to the succession crisis. auntieruth (talk) 15:16, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Auntieruth55: I'll look into it, thanks! I agree that before these articles could be considered truly "complete" and ready for something like FAC they need a little more context and consequences, and more coverage of their historiography. Thank you for your guidance! -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 19:35, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Second Silesian WarEdit

G'day Bryan, hope you will consider nominating Second Silesian War for Milhist ACR. I thought the first one went well, and it is a good prep for FAC, which is where I assume the first one is going shortly. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 10:26, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

@Peacemaker67: I'm definitely hoping to put them all through ACR, I just didn't want to overwhelm the system by nominating four articles at once; I figured I'd put up a new one when a previous one finished. Thank you for your encouragement and guidance! -Bryanrutherford0 (talk) 13:58, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
What I do is nominate one, then when it has two or three supports and an image or source review done (ie pretty close to passing), nominate a second one. Alternatively, you can wait until the first one is promoted as you've done here. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:33, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
