Positions on JerusalemEdit

I added the WikiProject's template to the talk page of Positions on Jerusalem but it was removed. I think that it's on the scope of the project because it has two sections, "United States" and "United States Embassy", related to the United States. Do you think that it should be re-added?

GAR NotificationEdit

Renaming "United States housing bubble"Edit

Hello. The article name is too broad and does not seem to name a specific event. By far the most popular proper name for this event I have seen is what I believe the article should be renamed, "The Great United States Housing Bubble" This title would paint an accurate and definable name for a singular event and focuses on the magnitude and extent of the event. It would greatly help students and researchers to be able to find information about this event without being confused as to weather or not it is about housing bubbles throughout the history of the United States, and it would settle misunderstandings as to what the event is called. This is just a suggestion, however.

Merger of duplicate CSA articlesEdit

Would appreciate feedback from anyone who has experience with U.S. census related articles. Merging duplicate article Rocky Mount-Wilson CSA into Rocky Mount-Wilson-Roanoke Rapids CSA. Can confirm that the article ending in Roanoke Rapids is correctly named via the census website, but beyond that there appear to be differences in the respective articles about what counties and towns are in the CSA that need to be reconciled. aegreen (talkemail) 15:14, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Aegreen, I would be willing to help you with this process, as it does appear this is a good candidate for a merger. I see that you have created the discussion for the merger per WP:MERGE. If, after a week or so there is no opposition to this merger, we can follow the process outlined on the aforementioned page to complete the merge.
As far as reconciling what counties and towns belong in the CSA, I feel it is best to use the definition of the CSA from the US Census Bureau, and go from there. Let me know if you have any questions or other concerns. --Willy No1lakersfan (Talk - Edits) 22:48, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Willy - believe the most recent CSA map from the U.S. Census website is from the 2012 economic census.[1] Will circle back in a week to move forward. aegreen (talkemail) 19:58, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

2019 El Paso shootingEdit

Perhaps a member of this project could have a look at the importance rating for this article. Given that mass shootings occur with a depressing regularity, I doubt that this particular one merits a "high importance" rating. Thanks. --Randykitty (talk) 07:20, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
