Happy New Year!Edit

  Happy New Year!
Hello Buaidh:


Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.

You are listed as an active member of WP:UST, is that still true or can I move you into former members?

Empty categoriesEdit

Hello, Buaidh,

A lot of empty categories have shown up on Wikipedia:Database reports/Empty categories that you created. To avoid overwhelming your user talk page, I won't post any more notices here. Should you wish to see all of the empty, tagged categories, you can view them on Category:Empty categories awaiting deletion. Liz Read! Talk! 16:10, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

FIPS CodesEdit

Hi,

I see that upon updating the CDP related articles for Colorado, that the FIPS Codes were deleted. The FIPS Codes are different from the GNIS codes in which the United States Census issues FIPS Codes to each entity and the codes are standard in all place-related articles.In addition, not every place with an FIPS code has a GNIS code and vice versa. Cheers. --Moreau36--Discuss 09:55, 4 February 2021 (UTC).

COI Edit Request for PoetEdit

Hello User:Buaidh: I see you are interested in pages regarding poetry. I am in a COI/Paid relationship with poet and lyricist Larry Beckett. I have posted several requests to his talk page, and have more and am wondering if you would have time and interest in helping review the edits. The editor who originally created the page User:Ghmyrtle has been offering overall suggestions for format, and what the page needs, but is spending most of their time editing other articles. I've also asked for the assistance of User:Yitzilitt who said they would be interested in helping, but may have limited time. I'd love to get more discussion going on for these edits. I put a request on the talk page of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poetry page, but haven't had a response. Along with what is in my existing requests, we will have more to add to the songwriting section. The article is also pretty poorly formatted. If you have the time and inclination to assist, Larry and I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, and best LeepKendall (talk) 23:38, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

SubpagesEdit

Hi, I see you are creating pages like List of places in Colorado/footer. The use of subpages in the mainspace is not allowed though. Such pages should either be templates, or simply a part of the articles they are intended for. Please see Wikipedia:Subpages for more information, and please move the pages to different namespaces or titles depending on how you will resolve this. Fram (talk) 08:43, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Colorado meeting(s)?Edit

I see at Portal:Colorado statement that meetings in 2020 could only be held online (sounds reasonable), and to contact you with meeting ideas... I haven't been much aware of / noticing the portal itself, but am plugging along on Colorado articles, especially ones on National Register of Historic Places listings in Colorado, and hoping to turn all Colorado counties' colors from blue shades to red shades in "Articles" map at wp:NRHPPROGRESS. I also notice a whole lot of redlinks in Template:Protected areas of Colorado, posted at the portal. I contact prolific colorado photographer User:Jeffrey Beall occasionally (and just saw notice of the portal MFD in 2019 at their Talk page i think), and I hope to visit and get pics of many more Colorado places myself this summer. I'd be happy to do a Zoom call amongst 2 or 3 or more Colorado editors about our intentions this year, say if Jeffrey could participate (and he knows others I think too), and perhaps encourage one another to split up the protect areas for articles say, or to get out for more photos. Who knows maybe even meet up camping somewhere nice, say. Can be reached at my Talk page or by email-this-user. Could Zoom most any weekday evening probably, myself. Thank you for defending the Colorado portal back in 2019. I myself have very much not appreciated interactions with one of the editors participating there, by the way. --Doncram (talk) 18:55, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank so much you for your work on National Register of Historic Places listings in Colorado.
A Zoom meeting sounds like a good idea. I'll definitely participate. We have a number of articles missing from Template:Protected areas of Colorado and the List of places in Colorado. We also have a number of photographs requested in Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Colorado. I'm currently expanding the List of places in Colorado. It has turned into a far bigger job than I anticipated. The Place Names of Colorado is a wonderful but highly detailed resource.
I'll post something on Wikipedia:WikiProject Colorado and Portal:Colorado. I may be delayed doing our taxes. Yours aye,  Buaidh  talk contribs 19:24, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
P.S. – We do have a bunch of fanatical editors who would like to reduce Wikipedia to just their own "impeccably crafted articles." No wonder the number of active Wikipedia editors has dropped so much.
