Armory status...

I haven't checked the page in awhile, and I feel like I should've a couple months ago when I could've gotten sources from the Press rather easily when the fate was heavily in the local news cycle (of course now it's not; silly Gannett web strategy), though WHBL probably has some stuff on it too. To put it shortly, the Spaceport Sheboygan people are finishing up vacating the Armory and moving into the former Triple Play Funzone building across the river at South Pier, and currently from what I know the Armory is currently under a months-long bidding process by the city and Common Council to determine its fate, whether remodeling or demolition. In the meantime the building is getting bare minimum winterization measures; heat being kept at 38°F, just enough to keep the pipes flowing (though this winter who knows?) and minimum maintenance and upkeep. The Armory Foundation to preserve it seems to be the ones getting their side strongly on the page, so it definitely can be better neutralized. That's as much as I know myself, so hopefully that helps. Nate (chatter) 06:10, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

deleted page Peerless-Premier Appliance Co

I had that on my list of articles of to fix. Where can I find a copy of the article you deleted so I can create a user page from it to work on? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nyth83 (talkcontribs) 22:14, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I posted on the wrong user Talk page somehow. I believe that it was deleted by RadiaFan for copyright plagiarism. Thanks for moving it to to my user page. I am having a hard time finding references. As to the significance or importance, why should this company be treated any different than any of the other appliance manufactures on Wikipedia? Deleting this page broke links on at least two other pages. For example List of major home appliance manufacturers. Nyth83 (talk) 12:37, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
BTW, did you also review my article Metal Ware Corporation? Nyth83 (talk) 13:04, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Posted the new article for Peerless-Premier Appliance Company. I hope that it can pass the relevancy test this time! LOL. Couldn't find much recent history on-line as the local newspaper for Belleville does not seem to have any on-line archives anywhere. It's not realistic for me to travel to Belleville to do the searching.Nyth83 (talk) 02:43, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Vollrath - Rename?

I would like your opinion on the article Vollrath created by Hilarydanger (who's userpage is non-existant).

I have started researching and updating this article with references, but it just now occurred to me to that this article name is wrong. Should it not be named 'The Vollrath Company' since that appears to be the official company name?

I have not done a comparison, it appears that some of the article may have come from the web page:

I wouldn't want to see the article deleted for copyright reasons before I have a chance to clean it up.Nyth83 (talk) 22:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I'd assume "Vollrath" would be the WP:COMMONNAME and thus the correct article title. - The Bushranger One ping only 23:10, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. I used to live in Sheboygan and I always heard it called The Vollrath Company. But what you really should do is look at all of the sources that you are finding and see what is commonly used - per WP:COMMONNAME. Thanks Bushranger. Royalbroil 23:59, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and if the article appears to be stole from the company's website, then the proper thing to do is to edit / reword the article until it's not a copyright violation / plagiarism. It don't need to be deleted as long as someone addresses the issue rather quickly. Royalbroil 00:24, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

At what point can we remove the 'refimprove|date=February 2011' tag from The Vollrath Company article? There are 12 references already and I will probably be adding at least another dozen before I am done. Also what do you think of the table I added at the end of the article?Nyth83 (talk) 18:25, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac

Hi-the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac elected a new bishop Matthew Alan Gunter last fall. He is to be ordained a bishop in late April 2014 and I am waiting on that before I started the article. The Episcopal Church has a procedure to approve their bishops. Thanks-RFD (talk) 20:15, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

NASCAR Barnstar

Hello, I noticed that you created an award for editors who contribute to WP:WikiProject NASCAR. I created a NASCAR specific Barnstar, just for that reason. I wanted to come to you just out of respect and not to seem like I'm infringing on anything. If you'd like, I'll let you have this barnstar to use to replace your award. If you don't like it, I'll put it to the side.

I wanted to come and ask your permission/get your blessing before I took it upon myself. As I said I didn't want to step on any toes, and wanted to clear it with you before I go any further.

Here is what the potential NASCAR Barnstar looks like.

I appreciate that you asked. Looks like a copyright infringement on NASCAR's logo to me, (speaking as an admin, not as the barnstar creator). I hope that User:The Bushranger sees my comment and gives a second opinion. Royalbroil 00:03, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I'd personally say it's probably an infringement - but I'm pretty sure I remember seeing some NASCAR-logo images tagged as "no copyright due to being a simple letter-pattern combination" in the past... - The Bushranger One ping only 00:19, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
If you look, you'll see I went to plan "B". And if you're a NASCAR fan, you know what that number means. Vjmlhds (talk) 00:41, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't like how this version promotes a certain driver. He did have haters. Backing things up, I'm okay with changing the NASCAR barnstar. This should be discussed at WikiProject NASCAR to get consensus. Royalbroil 00:43, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I did just that...I proposed making it the barnstar for the project, and went to the talk page to get the ball rolling.. Vjmlhds (talk) 00:52, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I think we may be talking to ourselves on the WikiProject page. Vjmlhds (talk) 02:05, 27 March 2014 (UTC)


Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked temporarily and placed on probation until April 2 and fined $50,000 to help pay for my RFA for failing post-race inspection. Also, your driver has been blocked for driving the car that's too low. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions, like not lowering your car's height. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

Under the NASCAR rulebook, all cars must be of approved height to ensure that your driver will not win a race.

Nice April Fool's joke. It was my first of the day. Better watch out on the track for the payback Royalbroil 23:48, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Skidmore, Michigan

Hi-Do you have any photos of Skidmore, Michigan? I came across the community in the Iron Mountain micropolitan area article-it was a redlink for Skidmore, Michigan and I started an article. Also an update about Episcopalian bishop-elect of the Fond du Lac Diocese Matthew Alan Gunter; he will be ordained a bishop on Saturday April 26 in Appleton, Wisconsin. Once he is ordained bishop, I will start the article. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 16:01, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't have photos of the community and good luck on the article! Royalbroil 21:48, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Edit-a-thon in Madison

Madison Public Library interior (9913742865).jpg

I know you work on Wisconsin stuff, so if you're interested, I wanted to invite you to a humanities edit-a-thon in the Madison Public Library on Friday, April 25th (1:30–3:30). It'll be on the shorter side and is aimed at new editors, but I hope to see you there. More information is available on the 2014 UW Conference on the Public Humanities website. Let me know if you have any questions czar  16:18, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation! I work on weekdays so I can't make it. Also, I live almost two hours away. Feel free to keep inviting me though! Royalbroil 01:24, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Will do. Know anyone else I should tell? czar  03:28, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I think that User:Woohookitty is from the Madison area. Perhaps s/he is interested?? Royalbroil 03:53, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
