P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Heather Douglas article may be deleted[edit]

A tag has been placed on Heather Douglas (actress), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (below the existing db tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. DoorsAjar 02:12, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Units of Measurement[edit]

I noticed changes you made in Indiana, and I was sure I was right and you were wrong about MOS. Turns out I was wrong. You're a little wrong, too, but I was wronger (wronger?) than you. In any case, I thought you would appreciate learning what I found out.

When you writing 197 square miles, preferred coding is 197 mi² You were leaving out the  , and the MOS definitely recommends it, so that the number and the units don't end up on separate lines. (That's in Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)#Units of measurement). However, I thought that it said that you should use the superscript 2 in technical articles, and use sq. mi. in non-technical articles. I can't find a trace of that, anywhere.

In the proposed revision of that page, they recommend using ² instead of <sup>2</sup> for the reason that the second formulation introduces additional leading in some browsers and the first version doesn't. I never saw ² before, but the argument won me over; I guess I'm going to use that from now on.

But in any case, thanks for teaching me a lesson (and thanks for doing nice work on the Indiana article.) ClairSamoht - Help make Wikipedia the most authoritative source of information in the world 05:38, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit]

I notice that you are removing the word "originally" from many articles. Certainly there are some cases were this word could be used. Buddha24 (talk) 05:22, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
