Dthomsen8 has passed Edit

Hello WikiProject Pennsylvania, it's been brought to my attention on my talk page prolific Wikipedian David Thomsen (Dthomsen8) passed away in November 2022. He was also a prolific copy-editor at the Guild of Copy Editors, of which I'm a member. As he was a somewhat active member of this WikiProject, I'm asking if anyone here would want to collaborate on a short obituary for The Signpost. I'm also going to ask at WikiProject Philadelphia, which seems less active than this project. Feel free to get in touch on my talk page or here; I'll watchlist. Best regards, Baffle☿gab 14:16, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

David's obituary has been published here. Best regards, Baffle☿gab 18:22, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pennsylvania Dutch Edit

I fear that, despite what may be good intentions, the articles on the Pennsylvania Dutch and the Fancy Dutch have become sprawling monstrosities in desperate need of an editorial weedwacker. Many of the claims in the interminable articles appear to be fact-free, lacking context, or poorly sourced. I don't have the time or the sanity to review all the content myself, but it is a glaring problem for what was once a sensible article.

Just a heads up that I have started a conversation at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (geographic names)#Consensus for Pennsylvania townships? to try to achieve a consensus on the page names for Pennsylvania's townships. Input from anybody here is welcome. Star Garnet (talk) 22:36, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of speakers of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Edit

I'm not sure if this is the correct form for this message - apologies if not. See Talk:List_of_speakers_of_the_Pennsylvania_House_of_Representatives#Major_vandalism? for what I think is a piece of major and longstanding vandalism. May I seek comments?
