vR regimentEdit

I thought it would be ok, at the bottome it says it can be used so long as it is non profit I aint looking to dispute it with you just Im new and that is what the cite says If I am wrong please let me know if you are sure I am JGVR (talk) 22:18, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi you were helping on the "Is it real" thread. I did a bit more work on the article Henry K. Van Rensselaer. It is only a starter but I think it has a bit more legs (no pun intended). I am hoping you might help make it look a bit more presentable. Were you able to confirm the true existence of said "roster"? If it does exit it presents a small problem. The presumed Captain wrote the name Col Kiliaen van Rensselaer. He was actually shot in Saratoga being an old timer may not have been at Fort Anne. All accounts say Henry Kiliaen van Rensselaer was shot....JGVR (talk) 21:21, 12 January 2013 (UTC) JGVR (talk) 21:23, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
JGVR, unfortunately I'm finding my time a little stretched thin right now between working on an article I have that's soon to be a featured article candidate, working on a good article nomination for a wikiproject i'm in, and uploading historic sites photos. I was hoping someone at WP:MILHIST could give you some advice. My advice from before still stands. Before you write more, look at a bunch of other similar Wikipedia articles. Then, basically copy those articles' style and formatting, but put your own words into them. That's the best way to start writing good articles. Certain subjects that you've written about, however, are likely going to have trouble with WP:GNG because certain of the Van Rensselaer soldiers aren't notable enough to have their own individual articles. Cdtew (talk) 21:50, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

put the speedy deletion tag on Category:TusenFrydEdit

Please, I dont want the category:Tusenfryd on wikipedia so please put a tag that it will be speedy deleted from wikipedia. Leave a message on my talk page. Starship9000 —Preceding undated comment added 17:25, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

You should contact an administrator about this, as I don't deal with categories. Thanks! Cdtew (talk) 20:51, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Fort Dobbs Scale Model.jpg)Edit

  Thanks for uploading File:Fort Dobbs Scale Model.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:17, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

I am attempting to confirm copyright status; if deleted I will only re-upload when I have that status confirmed. Thanks! Cdtew (come talk to me) 04:31, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curatedEdit

Hi, I'm Nemesis63. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Chauvet Mağarası, and have un-reviewed it again. If you've got any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Thanks, Nemesis63

Raphael E. FreundlichEdit

Hi. Just thought I would let you know that I removed both the {{autobiography}} and {{BLP sources}} tags from this article, as the subject is apparently deceased. --Drm310 (talk) 06:59, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Attack pagesEdit

Thanks for patrolling new pages. With attack pages, like a couple just now, it's probably best to tag them only with G10, even if other criteria like A7 also apply. That way (I believe) the system gives the attacker a more appropriate warning on the lines of {{uw-attack}}. (I have blocked that attacker as he persisted). Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:02, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Fort DobbsEdit

Answering here because I just archived December: The time needed for promotion varies; I'm not involved in promotion at A-class since I review all of them. You're welcome, and I think GAN makes sense. - Dank (push to talk) 13:32, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm a little skeptical of some of the advice you're currently getting, although I need to look at the article more carefully to see if my skepticism is justified, when I can get to it. - Dank (push to talk) 01:21, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure how to respond to some of them. I'm not really keen on taking much of the background info out, because the Anglo-Cherokee War article is relatively pitiful on its own. I'd rather have a mini-explanation, rather than direct someone to get their background info in a less-than-polished article. Cdtew (talk) 16:18, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
I've now responded fully, for your reviewing pleasure. Cdtew (talk) 18:33, 12 January 2013 (UTC))

Michael CroftEdit

Hi Clark, on 30 December I contributed a new Wikipedia article on the late Michael Croft, founder and director of the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. Within four minutes of my doing so you had slapped a "Multiple issues" – "footnotes", "refimprove" and "pov" – tag on it. As you know, this advises me either to "improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page." I therefore tried to explain the position and sought your advice there. That was over a week ago, so I thought it was time to bring it to your attention here as well! Peter Farey (talk) 10:42, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Peter, see my response on the talk page for that article. Apologies, as for some reason I wasn't watching that page. Cdtew (talk) 14:13, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Clark. No harm done! Peter Farey (talk) 16:00, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to WP:NRHPEdit

Welcome to WP:NRHP. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me, or better yet ask at WT:NRHP. I noticed that you wrote about a site in Iredell County, so I separated out all the sites there that need photos - see Talk:National Register of Historic Places listings in Iredell County, North Carolina. Hope this helps. Smallbones(smalltalk) 19:19, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I have added plenty that I went out and shot today. I'll make it a goal to get as many as I can. Thanks! Cdtew (talk) 23:21, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Looks good. I added the Bethany Church pic to the Ebenezer Academy, Bethany Presbyterian Church and Cemetery article. I was a bit surprised at first, but I think this makes sense. Keep up the good work. Smallbones(smalltalk) 23:24, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
There's another issue I'm trying to solve. Two homes which are definitely listed on the NRHP in Mooresville aren't present on this list. I'll try and dig them up and add them. I hate the NRHP's website. Makes me want to choke myself out. Cdtew (talk) 23:28, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I've tried to do some research on NRHP stuff in the past, also. Their site is pretty difficult sometimes. Lots of other Wikipedians have made it easier though. The NRHP wikiproject has resources that help (their FAQ is helpful too). One thing to watch out for is that some places say they are on the NRHP even though they merely exist in an NRHP historic district or they've been de-listed for whatever reason at sometime. I have seen those things happen sometimes. But if they truly are, then I'll try to help you find them as well. What is missing? -- JoannaSerah (talk) 00:01, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Joanna, thanks for swooping in to help again! The two properties that I think are missing are located next to each other, one on Wilson Ave, the other on Academy St. in Mooresville (they occupy the same corner at the intersection of those two streets. Off-hand, I don't know the addresses, but I could dig up GPS coordinates. The only reason I believe they're on the register currently is because I've seen them on a map of NRHP-listed places in Mooresville that was provided by a consulting firm for the town. Thanks for the help with my userpage, by the way! Cdtew (talk) 00:05, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
The house on Academy Street is at Lat 35.579801 Lon -80.819563, whilst the house on Wilson Ave is Lat 35.580141 Lon -80.819890. If you're looking at Google Maps in default orientation, Academy and West Wilson form an "X", and the houses are in the top "quadrant" of the "X" (rather than left, right, or bottom). Cdtew (talk) 00:12, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Hmm...Interesting. I'll keep looking, but haven't found anything on those properties yet regarding NRHP. Doesn't yet appear that they were on it and de-listed either. Only have found some mentions of local historic notice, not NRHP. Maybe they are currently in the nomination process possibly? Do the properties have names/titles of any kind that you know of? Might want to take to the project talk page as well. Thank you. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 02:04, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

DYK review.Edit

Hello, Cdtew! I was just wondering if you had a few moments to review a DYK? nomination: Template:Did you know nominations/Martha B. Alexander I had posted the nomination a while back, but no one has reviewed it yet. Don't know if that means it just wasn't that interesting a factoid or what. Maybe too much time has passed since it was nominated now, I don't know. Anyway, if you get a chance, could you take a look at it. Thank you. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 21:14, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Done! Thanks for bringing that to my attention; always glad to help! Cdtew (talk) 21:53, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Saw your request at the WPNC talk page about Fort Dobbs and will see what I can do about that. Not sure that I should really do a review since I did contribute a tiny bit to it, but will look over FA guidelines and see. Not done a FAC review before. Anyway, good luck. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 16:27, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Hate to bother you again, but have another that no one seems interested in reviewing, it appears. Please see Template:Did you know nominations/Charles W. Albertson. Next time, I may just ask for help at the NC project talk page instead. Thank you for your help. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 20:23, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

I'd be glad to help, and am always happy to do so -- feel free to ask here first, as I'll likely pick it up off the WP:NC page anyways. I, too, have two that are hanging around at Template:Did you know nominations/Thomas Polk and Template:Did you know nominations/John Hamilton (American Revolution).

Fanning pieceEdit

Hello, just wanted to say that that was nice work on the David Fanning (loyalist) piece. I enjoyed reading it. Cheers, MarmadukePercy (talk) 07:48, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Many thanks! I enjoyed researching him, and once I'm done with getting NC's Continental Army Generals to GA, I plan on going back to Fanning (and some of the other notorious Tories) and improving them further. Fanning was a fascinating guy! If you're interested, his diametrical opposite was John Hamilton (American Revolution), an affable, social fellow who was known more for his dinner parties than his cruelty. Cdtew (talk) 14:54, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads-up on John Hamilton. I'll have a look. I've done some work on the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, on King's Mountain, and role of the Overmountain Men and on Joseph Martin (general) who was a real piece of work himself. Anyways, nice work on Fanning. Cheers, MarmadukePercy (talk) 03:04, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
That is amazing work; it's a fascinating-looking article, and I can't wait to read it. Out of curiosity, I noticed you didn't have an Infobox. Is that personal preference, or just an omission of necessity? I am a slave to putting Infoboxes in my article, but I rather like the look of Joseph Martin without an infobox. Cdtew (talk) 03:08, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. He was a pretty fascinating guy. As for infoboxes, I guess it's a matter of personal preference. Generally, for reasons I can't explain, I like infoboxes on most pieces, but when it comes to biographies, I find them distracting. I've tried it both ways, and I have no objection to others using them. I guess when it comes to one man, or one woman, I generally like to see the page without distractions. Just personal preference. Best wishes, MarmadukePercy (talk) 03:26, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Main page appearance: Fort Dobbs (North Carolina)Edit

This is a note to let the main editors of Fort Dobbs (North Carolina) know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on February 27, 2013. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 27, 2013. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegates Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), Gimmetoo (talk · contribs), and Bencherlite (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you can change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Fort Dobbs was an 18th-century fort in the Yadkin–Pee Dee River Basin region of the Province of North Carolina, near what is now Statesville in Iredell County. Used for frontier defense during and after the French and Indian War, the fort was built to protect the British settlers of the western portion of what was then Rowan County from Cherokee, Catawba, Shawnee, Delaware and French raids into North Carolina. The fort's name honored Arthur Dobbs, the colonial Governor of North Carolina from 1754 to 1765. When in use, it was the only fort on the frontier between South Carolina and Virginia. On February 27, 1760, the fort was the site of an engagement between Cherokee warriors and provincial militia that ended in a victory for the militia. Fort Dobbs was abandoned after 1766, but archaeological work in the 20th century and historical research in 2005 and 2006 led to the discovery of the fort's exact location and probable appearance. The site on which the fort sat is now operated by North Carolina's Division of State Historic Sites and Properties as Fort Dobbs State Historic Site, and supporters of the site have developed plans for the fort's reconstruction.

Fort Dobbs (North Carolina) and Fort LoudonEdit

When it is clear on a quick scan that a government built the fort I do place it in the government built category in addition to the infrastructure category. If you read the infrastructure article, which some editors disagree with, infrastructure is more then physical infrastructure which is what I believe a lot of editors limit infrastructure to. That article says, In military parlance, the term refers to the buildings and permanent installations necessary for the support, redeployment, and operation of military forces. This pretty much covers forts. I would not have a problem with something like Category:Military structures completed in yyyy if there are a sufficient number of military structures completed in individual years. From going through many of these by year categories, I'm not sure that is the case. There are probably more articles post 16th century on armories then forts. There are also some others around like arsenals. This lack of articles could well be due to many buildings not be listed in any year category. Sub categorizing those has been a big task. But when you look, there are huge numbers of building not classified in that tree, even when the build date is known. One other consideration. Modern military facilities tend to be opened in some year and are then expanded over time. So for many of these something like Category:Military structures opened in yyyy could be a better choice. If Category:Military structures completed in yyyy is also kept, that would probably be the parent category. As a side note, some editors prefer that buildings be placed directly in a category that includes the word building with that category in turn being placed in the infrastructure category.

I hadn't really thought much about it; my concerns are: 1) I prefer content work, and I'm not sure how well that meshes with adminship; 2) I have been on here since 2009, but took a break between 2011 and mid-2012, so I'm still theoretically new; 3) My work schedule can sometimes be hectic (lawyer) and I'm not always able to promptly respond to people on here. With that being said, what are your thoughts? Cdtew (talk) 13:29, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

  Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Thomas Eaton (general) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Disambiguation link notification for June 5Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Francis Nash, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page James Moore (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

MplspcEdit

I appreciate your efforts to help the project curator; however, note that he has said "I chose the account name so that whoever comes after me can use the account". Since you work right next door to the library, you might want to stop by and explain to him why that's not a good idea. DS (talk) 00:50, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

I have given him a call. Clearly he'll need to get an individual username. Sorry for bothering you about it, but I didn't know his intentions. Cdtew (talk) 00:52, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
