Seeking precise location of "Kenwood, Maryland"Edit

I'm trying to pinpoint the locale of "Kenwood, Maryland", as in the home and death place of cartoonist H. M. Talburt. Googling suggests it may be a neighborhood of Bethesda and/or Chevy Chase, MD. [1], [2]. Are there two distinct locations, or one on a boundary region, what is the most definitive administrative body (city/county) of each? Many thanks, --Animalparty!

When I search for Kenwood, MD, I get a specific location labeled "Kenwood"; moreover, web searching yields a blog entry (not exactly a WP:RS) that indicates an address on Kennedy Drive and that he was married to a woman named frances; finally, searching public records yields a Frances Talburt at 6409 Kennedy Drive in Chevy Chase, MD. So, there is indirect evidence that corroborate the Kenwood neighborhood of Chevy Chase, Maryland that was mentioned in the NYT obit as the location where he was residing when he died. — soupvector (talk) 17:03, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Request for information on WP1.0 web toolEdit

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Show Washington on map of Germantown, MarylandEdit

I have just added the following to Talk: Germantown, Maryland:

Considering this sentence
Germantown is located approximately 25–30 miles (40–48 km) outside the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. and is an important part of the Washington metropolitan area.
I think it would be valuable to add Washington, DC to the maps, at least to Location of Germantown in Montgomery County and the U.S. state of Maryland.


That article is not very active, so I am adding this notice to the Discussion sections of WikiProjects Maryland (which is currently rated semi-active) and Cities.

PS: I saw a mention of a list of articles to fix, supposedly on the Project Page, but there is no such list there. Semi-active indeed!

A list of articles to fix is under the Project Page's To-do tab. —ADavidB 18:35, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Laureate Ed. request for assistanceEdit

Hello editors, I'm Patrice, an employee of Laureate Education and representative on Wikipedia. I have recently learned more about the rules and guidelines of the site for editors like me who have a "paid conflict of interest" or "COI". Having mistakenly edited the article myself in the past, I now understand why I must not do so. I'm working to follow the rules strictly, now that I understand them better, and seeking the community's assistance with suggested improvements to the page going forward. In addition to the Talk discussion page, I wondered if this WikiProject would be a good place to collaborate with interested editors? I noticed other institutions have done the same and my post from January remains unanswered. If this is the appropriate process to follow and any editors are interested, would a volunteer be willing to review my post and make a few updates to the infobox on my behalf? Thanks for any help or feedback, in advance! PMV1111 (talk) 07:48, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
