Wow[edit]

I'm floored by the richness of your contributions to articles about Dayton and Ohio history. I recently tried to improve the Dayton article and hope that like-minded Wikipedians can join together to make it as excellent as it can be. Thanks for your contributions so far! Do you live in Dayton?

P.S. Can I suggest you take a moment to type at least one word on your user page so that it does not appear as a red link (generally considered not preferrable).

Dcb, I'm the author of the above comment. It seems I somehow forgot to sign! Must have been too late at night. But I wanted to reiterate what I said about and thank you for your work on spreading the fame of Dayton through the globe through Wiki. And it's great to see you've expanded your user page. What a biography you've got! :) --Dpr 05:18, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

Great article on Langstroth[edit]

DCB, I just wanted to say that that is an excellent article on L. L. Langstroth, the beekeeper.

Re:Changing spelling of a quotation from a newspaper[edit]

Hi there, in a direct quote, no it's probably not valid. Thanks for catching that. What article is it in please?

On deleting the word "regiment"[edit]

I only did it to make it look the same as the other Ohi Civil War articles, which are also regiments but don't contain the word in the title. --Wizardman 23:26, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

The convention agreed to by the Wiki Military History Project team is to use XXth State Infantry, as each state had varying official names. The team wanted to standardize everything. Take a look at the 1st Ohio Infantry for the style that we would like to eventually use for regimental articles. Please continue to add regimental articles David - we appreciate the help! Scott Mingus 23:55, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
David, the article title is what is the XXth State Infantry, not the lead-in paragraph, which should be the official name. Hence, I did restore the deletion. Keep up the good work! Scott Mingus 12:54, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Marcel Marceau: WP:MOS (dates)[edit]

I think maybe you need to reread that Manuel of Style article:
Dates of birth and death
   * Charles Darwin (12 February 1809–19 April 1882)
  • Locations should be included in the biography portion of the body article. For example, "(12 February 1809 in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England–19 April 1882 in Downe, Kent, England)" should be separated to "(12 February 1809–19 April 1882) … He was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England … He died in Downe, Kent, England".
David 21:10, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

David, I think perhaps you need to re-read the policy, too, the problem I had with Marcel Marceau is not with the birthplace, but the open-ended en-dash. The policy article specifically calls for "(born BIRTHDATE)" rather than "(BIRTHDATE –)". My inclusion of the birthplace, a practice that is seems much more common that the official policy, was simply an attempt at a surgical rather than a broad edit, as it stands, the Marceau article is using the intro paragraph as its sole statement of Marceau's birth, and there is no text into which to move "Strasbourg, France". Since you didn't like my solution, I invite you to figure out how to do this properly. Otherwise, I will, per policy, simply remove the birthplace and fix the hanging en-dash, which I'm sure will satisify nobody. (And please add links to articles you discuss on talk pages, as I had to because of your omission, but do so in the text of your posting, not in the heading, also per policy.) ~ Jeff Q (talk) 06:07, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the problem, simply and elegantly. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 00:59, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Emanuel Shultz[edit]

The Vinyard in this article refers to a proper name (his mother's maiden name) and is not a mis-spelling. I've reverted. David 01:24, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Ah, cool. Thanks for pointing that out. I've added that to my exception list. Cheers, CmdrObot 01:50, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

JHP[edit]

Can't wait to see this artcle done on Patterson. Thanks for your Dayton contributions.--Kjmoran 00:58, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Austin_Eldon_Knowlton.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Austin_Eldon_Knowlton.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use; in addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 06:56, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Robert Roeschlaub[edit]

I've never found any documentation that shows Roeschlaub attended Columbia University, but I decided to see if you had it before editing the page, from what I can learn, the architecture school at Columbia started in 1881. By that time Roeschlaub was actively working as an architect in Denver. David-on-Wyandotte (talk) 18:55, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
