Nice work with the lakes. One request, I’m assuming these lakes are public.

It doesn’t say public lakes so there tends to be confusion about if these lakes can be used or not.

Example is Edwards pond public? I think so but I don’t use it because I’m not sure. Any info?

You've certainly dove right in! Just wanted to recognize your contributions and to say if you have editing questions I'm hoping to help if I can.

I just spruced up Woodhull Lake (New York) a bit. I'd recommend copy-pasting the templates on the talk page on to new pages you create. Also adding the appropriate geo stubs is helpful too. See Category:New York geography stubs for some of the ones you can add.

Cheers! Keep up the good work! EvergreenFir (talk) 06:10, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Just dropping by...[edit]

I just realized a trend I was doing. You seem to be about the rivers. I just realized I was working on nothing but local islands lately. That's kinda funny. If you need any more advice just drop me a line. Reb1981 (talk) 22:45, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you. Could you help me with the page Wright, New York. I'm trying to make a page for gallupville but it keeps redirecting to the main page. How can I undo the redirect? Thanks Tripp155 (talk) 17:24, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks on the river work[edit]

I appreciate your help in implementing the new "tributary" convention as well as the other great stuff you're doing. I didn't quite understand your suggestion on my talk page, and replied there. Dicklyon (talk) 20:12, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

West Kill[edit]

You're welcome. I just nominated it for DYK; I have included you as a coauthor.

I admit I didn't expect to write so much (and I'm not done yet ... I need to add some information on the fishing). I am quite familiar with the Spruceton Valley from all the hiking I've done up there, and I figured I'd just write a section on its course. But then I wanted to know if I could find information on what I call the three "vital statistics" of a watercourse we should endeavor to have in every article about one: length, watershed area and discharge. I looked around, expecting I might be lucky if I found two of those ... but then I found that and so much more. I guess I can thank it being part of the NYC water supply ... the DEP needs to know everything it can about the streams that feed its reservoirs. Daniel Case (talk) 20:55, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Well, someone will probably come around at some point and upgrade the assessment.

As for FA, yes, it has that potential. But ... first I have a bunch of pictures I took of the lower West Kill last year on Labor Day weekend, starting from the mouth (actually quite a popular swimming spot), with the goal of illustrating specific sections of the article that I'd like to add.

Then ... I'd like to get out there again this summer and photograph the upper stream, including the source (which is going to be a hike, although having climbed Southwest Hunter Mountain several times I am familiar with that area. My guess for How To Do It would be to hike up the Devil's Path from the falls to about 3,100' in elevation and then leave the trail to slab across the cirque until intersecting the stream somewhere below or near its source (I can't imagine, though, that there wouldn't be at least a couple of rivulet-size tributaries competing for the honor).

Alternatively, this could be combined with a hike up Southwest Hunter using the old railbed. After bagging the summit, one could just drop down into the cirque (steep, though) and try to reach the source that way.

Even more fun would be getting video, and putting together a montage showing the stream from its source to its mouth. We don't have anything like that in any of our articles on streams. Daniel Case (talk) 03:19, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

DYK for West Kill[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 27 January 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article West Kill, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the watershed of the West Kill (Diamond Notch Falls pictured) has the steepest slopes and highest overall elevation of any subbasin of New York's Schoharie Creek? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/West Kill. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, West Kill), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

New Mexico State Road 162[edit]

Great minds think alike; I was planning to add an article on this road this weekend. Three questions. First, do you have anything on the history of the road, particularly including its creation? I've been looking and have found very little. Second, were you planning on expanding it to include info on the 1968 Rio Arriba County Courthouse raid? It's historically significant, and the route of NM 162 includes the courthouse. Third, any interest in nominating it as a DYK? Thanks for putting this together. -- Bill-on-the-Hill (talk) 16:38, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Yes I would be interested in doing all these. There is a website: and it tells most history about all the routes in NM. Thanks and id like if you could help it become a DYK article Bacardi379 (talk) 20:04, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

OK, I've added a section on the Rio Arriba County Courthouse raid, probably the most significant thing that ever happened along this highway (it's ... kinda sleepy). Please wikify, as I am rather clumsy with use of the references template. (For starters, how to add the name of the second author, Robert Trapp?) Still looking for other historical bits.

Incidentally, the proposed DYK is: "... New Mexico State Road 162 both begins and ends at junctions with United States Highway 84. with the site of a shootout in the middle?" -- Bill-on-the-Hill (talk) 15:12, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

So it doesn't look like this is happening. The affixing of the label "stub" to this article rather overlooks the point that there's not much to say about a 2.6-mile-long highway through a very tiny town. Unfortunately, once it's there, it's hard to get rid of. Want to help with an article on the Rio Arriba County Courthouse instead? There's enough history there for an actual article and DYK. I'll start it this weekend. -- Bill-on-the-Hill (talk) 03:49, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

I can help you with that. Also are you able to take a picture of the route with a route sign in the picture? Bacardi379 (talk) 03:19, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Map in NY lake articles[edit]

I'm curious ... why did you use the one with just the Adirondack Park? While I could see that for the lakes/reservoirs in that park, most of the ones you added it to are very far from it. At the very least you could use (or get whoever's been coding all these modules to use) File:Adirondack and Catskill Parks Locator.svg, which shows the Catskill Park as well (sort of relevant to the New York City reservoirs in that region, since most of them are at least partially within its Blue Line). Daniel Case (talk) 03:47, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I can help you. Let me know when and where you are making/want to make the request. Daniel Case (talk) 18:57, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

@Daniel Case: I made a list of what should be added to the adirondack park map. The list: Sacandaga River, Oswegatchie River, Beaver River (Black River tributary), Chadakoin River, Conewango River, Oneida River, Tonawanda Creek, Cattaraugus Creek, Chenango River, Black Lake (Oswegatchie River tributary), Indian River (Black Lake tributary), Unadilla River, Oaks Creek, Canadarago Lake, Otsego Lake, East Branch Delaware River, Schoharie Creek, West Canada Creek, Saranac River, Raquette River, St. Regis River, Stillwater Reservoir, Cranberry Lake, Great Sacandaga Lake and La Chute River. It seems like a long list but its all of the major rivers and waterways that would go good on the map. 420Traveler (talk) 04:00, 25 June 2019 (UTC) @Daniel Case: I forgot one thing, to add shading for the catskill mountains. And to use the same map color scheme of the Adirondack Park map. Thanks 420Traveler (talk) 03:38, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Special route pages[edit]

Thank you for starting the Special routes of U.S. Route 50 and Special routes of U.S. Route 160 pages. All special routes should be on each page. Just in case you didn't know, the List of special routes of the United States Numbered Highway System page (long load time) should have all of the special routes on it. That should help you added new sections. Also, make sure you expand each section to include a route description and, if possible, history of the highway. Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 04:42, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Creating New Lake articles and tagging to Lakes Project[edit]

I really appreciate all the stub articles being created in NY for lakes. It would be even more helpful if you would also add any lake articles you create to WikiProject Lakes so we can easily track and expand these articles together. Keep it up!

Requested Canajoharie Creek graph[edit]

Would this be for a particular period like that West Kill one (which is meant to show how high the stream got during Hurricane Irene)? Daniel Case (talk) 16:23, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

@Daniel Case: yes to show how high it got during hurricane irene, thank you 420Traveler (talk) 22:49, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Boiling Pot Picture[edit]

Thank you for your excellent pages, edits, and pictures! I wanted to ask if it is alright to copy your picture of the Boiling Pot (in Canajoharie Creek) to the other Canajoharie pages (village, town, etc), to show the feature that gave the unique name. Trumblej1986 (talk) 11:40, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

@Trumblej1986: Yes you can, that sounds like a great idea. Thank you for the compliment too. 420Traveler (talk) 17:57, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages and red links[edit]

Since you just blanked my message, I take it you don’t want to help clean up Dean Creek and Deans Creek. I do look forward to all those red links turning blue eventually. Cheers! — Gorthian (talk) 04:17, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of K-181 (Kansas highway)[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article K-181 (Kansas highway) you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.

Special routes of U.S. Route 69 moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Special routes of U.S. Route 69, does not have enough content as written to remain published. It needs more information from citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Deep web). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article enough content that meets Deep web's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. Imzadi 1979  00:04, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

@Imzadi1979: thanks for letting me know this I didn't know, I appreciate it. But don't forget you can help too. Thanks 420Traveler (talk) 00:06, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
If there is only the one special route, it should be a stand-alone article. If there are others, they should be represented in some fashion before the draft is published. Imzadi 1979  00:09, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

RE:Map data[edit]

Might want to talk to Fredddie about that, and perhaps there might be some useful links at Deep web:Map data as well. I'm honestly about as clueless as you are. :P ToThAc (talk) 00:35, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

@ToThAc and 420Traveler: add this to your common.js. –Fredddie 01:32, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
importScript('User:Evad37/kmlToJson.js'); // Evad's KML to JSON thinger
Then when you visit a KML page, click edit and there will be a redlink to the proper JSON page. Open that in a new tab and then look for the More dropdown menu in the top bar, click GeoJSON and it will convert automatically. Then just copy, paste, and save in the JSON tab you opened. Then in the infobox, replace any map listed with this:
|map={{maplink|frame=yes|plain=yes|frame-align=center|frame-width=290|frame-height=240|type=line|raw={{Deep web:Map data/Deep web KML/{{subst:PAGENAME}}}}}}
|map_notes=US xx highlighted in red
This is preformatted for a U.S. Highway, but you can change the note to whatever you want it to be. Once you get into a rhythm, you can crank out a few maps a minute. –Fredddie 01:38, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Idaho highway KMLs[edit]

Please cross-reference with the Idaho road logs (cited in the articles) instead of Google Maps when cretaing KMLs. Your Idaho State Highway 7 map was in the entirely wrong area and needs to be deleted. SounderBruce 22:18, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

@SounderBruce: I didn't create the KML, so whoever created it made a mistake. You can fix it as I don't make KMLs, just use existing ones..... Thanks420Traveler (talk) 22:40, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
You need to request that the map data sub-entry is deleted, using WP:CSD G7. Just make sure to load up the KML into Google Earth and check before you import it into the map data tool. SounderBruce 22:43, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: I will do that but whoever made the KML made the mistake, therefore its not my fault because the KML that someone else made should have been correct before they added it to the article. 420Traveler (talk) 22:48, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: You never messaged TheWombatGuru (talk · contribs) for creating the incorrect KML. 420Traveler (talk) 01:24, 26 October 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: I indeed used Google maps and not the Idaho road logs. When creating them at the time, I thought this was the correct way to do this and thought I was helping the wiki and I also enjoyed doing it. You can delete them if needed. TheWombatGuru (talk) 18:38, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

GA nom of New York State Route 52[edit]

Thanks for doing that ... I live about a block away from Route 52 so of course I have a personal connection to that article; I did a lot of work on it (including all that sourcing for the route description), so I'd be very glad to see it get to GA.

I have it on my watchlist; when someone gets around to reviewing it I will be glad to be of assistance working with them. Just thought I'd let you know. Daniel Case (talk) 00:53, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Addendum: Tell you what, I'm going to print it out and give it a nice red-pen copy edit (something I think should be done with every article before nominating it for something, even peer review). Daniel Case (talk) 04:10, 14 December 2019 (UTC)
I pulled the GANs of NY 52 and 55. They are in terrible shape. Mitch32(Fame is a four letter word.) 04:39, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
@Mitchazenia: you do what you gotta do, but please elaborate as to how they are in terrible shape?? When I look at NY 28 which is a Featured Article, it looks to me that it is in worse shape than NY 52. Also what gives you the right to remove the GAN just because you dont agree?, thought that was the point of a GAN. When someone reviewed it then changes would be made so it could become a Good Article. 420Traveler (talk) 15:35, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
I haven't finished my hard-copy edit but there are things that would best be addressed before nominating besides my overdue update to the "Future" section of the Route 52 article. For one thing, the exit numbers in the section covering the I-84 concurrency are what are now the old ones; they must be updated as well and I will do that later. There's also some assertions that could be sourced better than they are. Daniel Case (talk) 18:05, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
There are tags everywhere, along with dead and missing citations. The reason I didn't pull NY 12 is because it's in good shape. Also, 52 has self-published sources and stuff that needs to be ironed out. Mitch32(Fame is a four letter word.) 06:15, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Pray Hill[edit]


The article Pray Hill has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This hill is not notable, as there is nothing to say about it beyond name, location and height. No further sources can be found. See WP:GEOLAND.

While all constructive contributions to Deep web are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
