May songs

... and thank you for improving articles in May! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:13, 20 May 2022 (UTC)

I like my talk today (actually mostly from 29 May - I took the title pic), enjoy the music, two related videos worth watching! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:28, 31 May 2022 (UTC)

Karl PopperEdit

From your recent edit of Karl Popper, I'm glad to see you're still at it. I made any edit there @ "See also" to add Karl Popper - Wikiquotes, to which I entered a quote that I had read long ago. It impressed me yet again. Cheers, Thomasmeeks (talk) 00:16, 21 May 2022 (UTC)


Can you provide a reason why you removed Integratron from the listing? It looks like it was listed in 2018, and hasn't been delisted since. 25or6to4 (talk) 22:35, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

Thanks! I've fixed my edits (and that strange buzzing in my head has stopped). Now all I gotta do is get a ref for the article that actually verifies the listing. Your prompt response to my query was wonderful! – S. Rich (talk) 23:00, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

@25or6to4: ACK! Your message prompted me to look in the NRHP database via a different route. There it is! I'll go back and undo my faulty "updates". Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 22:43, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

No problem! 25or6to4 (talk) 23:44, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

Desert Memorial ParkEdit

Hello Srich32977; You recently removed some edits I had made to Desert Memorial Park. Regarding the two "See" entries I had included, Edward C. Babcock and Alaine C Brandes, I included them because they are buried under their given names, not their stage names, but their articles use their stage names. Anyone looking for their given names would not find them alphabetically, if the "See" entry is removed. I concede there probably would not be many people looking for them under their given name. Regarding Rodney M. Bell, I'm not clear why you removed him, other than no one has written an article for him yet. He was an actor with over 100 movie credits along with numerous television appearances. The Desert Memorial Park cemetery maintains an "Interments of Interest" list and considers him worth noting. There are only about 10 Wikipedia articles that refer to him at this time. OvertAnalyzer (talk) 00:01, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

@OvertAnalyzer: Regarding Crossley, he's quite notable and simply lacks an ambitious editor to write up his story. Hence he can (or should) stay on the list as a redlink. The other (Bell) should stay off in accordance with WP:WTAF. He's just not that notable or WP:Noteworthy at this time. For our burials under the actual, non-stage names, I suggest we set up redirects under the real names pointing to the stage names. Magdolna Gabor is one example. We don't need (or want) her listed twice. – S. Rich (talk) 04:30, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

@Srich32977: You are right that creating redirects for birth names might be adequate for people to locate stage name. In my view, Crossley is of local importance to the Palm Springs area, but Bell is notable for his long movie and television career. In that sense Bell is more broadly notable than Crossly. I've seen many Wikpedia pages for performers with much less notable careers than Bell. If the ten articles that refer to Bell were all redlinked, someone might eventually create a page for him. On a different note, what are your thoughts on renaming the Desert Memorial Park page to the "Palm Springs Cemetery District" page? The Desert Memorial Park and the Welwood Murray Cemetery could both then redirect to the "Palm Springs Cemetery District". I have found some of the people listed on the Desert Memorial Park page are actually buried at the Welwood Murray Cemetery. Hugo Montenegro is one example. Separate sections for DMP and WMC interments could be included in the newly renamed article. It might complicate how the infobox is presented. OvertAnalyzer (talk) 14:30, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

June songsEdit

June songs

Thank you for improving articles in June! My song collection is especially rich, look, and the hall where I first heard DFD, Pierre Boulez and Murray Perahia. Do you find the baby deer in the meadow (last row)? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:13, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Albert Ostman pageEdit

Hi. I noticed you cleared the talk page for Albert Ostman. (And replaced with tags.) At minimum, shouldn't those sections have been archived? (Rather than deleted.)Rja13ww33 (talk) 17:27, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

@Rja13ww33: Frankly I'm not sure what I was doing. I'd found an indexing page for WikiProject 'Rational Skepticism' that listed all sorts of WikiProject pages with that description. Only the actual Project is simply 'Skepticism'. The 'Rational' list sorta duplicated the 'Skepticism' list, so I thought I was removing the overlapping/duplicate lists. I think 'Rational' showed up on the listing because the 'Rational' WikiProject was on the archived talk page. At this point I can't figure out how the two Project listings intertwine, so I'm giving up on this little WikiGnome endeavor. Thanks so very much for pointing out the unintentional deletion! – S. Rich (talk) 17:45, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. Wasn't sure if it was happening because of a rule I had forgotten or something.Rja13ww33 (talk) 17:50, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
