Help With Creating SandboxEdit

Since I just created my account yesterday, may I please get some help with creating my sandbox? I have no idea how to put up the boxes to tell about myself, what are my interests, my ancestry, and my political views. Does anyone have directions on how to put the infoboxes on my sandbox? I would appreciate the help! --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:24, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello and welcome. You did not receive a reply because no one saw it until now I suppose. You can find a lot of options for userboxes at Userbox Gallery and you can develop your userpage using tips from WP:UPDC. Next time you have a question, feel free to drop by at my talk page - I am always willing to help! :) Alternatively, you can include {{helpme}} in your help request and someone will notice the message and get to you (or else you may not receive a response). You can also go at the Tea House or help desk at anytime you want - they are really friendly and helpful. For the help with infobox, do you mean an infobox about yourself or for an article? You can checkout Template:Infobox Wikipedian and WP:INFOBOX for that respectively. Let me know if you have any more questions or need help with anything. I would be glad to help! :) — Yash talk stalk 17:04, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

More Help With SandboxEdit

Could I have some more help with my sandbox? The help I need is that I want to have several subsandboxes if anyone knows what I mean and I want to know how to make them. The reason why I want to make some subsandobxes is that my main sandbox is starting to get cluttered and I don't want to have it get too cluttered. I've seen people on other wikis with more than one sandbox and I just wonder how I can make ones for my various projects I've made over the past several months. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:35, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

  Done Well, I created the other sandboxes for myself a while back. With that, that issue is no longer. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 19:29, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Need Even More Help With my Sandbox/Edit request 8/2/2018Edit

While I was able to create a few more sandboxes for my various projects, I have run into a few issues regarding pictures on election infoboxes and I haven't been able to fix them. I'll list them below,

I tried fixing the images several times before, but all times have failed. Could I please have some help with those issues? I would appreciate the help very much. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:00, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Well, it's been two months and no one has helped me or even replied. I tried figuring out the problem of why the pictures weren't lining up properly on my sandboxes, I discovered the photos were not all the same pixel sizes. I figured that was probably the cause of my issues. However, even after adjusting the sizes of the pictures, they are still messed up. Could I please have some help with this issue or at least have someone tell me what to do in this type of situation? --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:34, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
The other issues I pointed out two months ago are also still a concern such as the color for the Radical Republicans not showing up. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:45, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
  Done Well, I was able to fix the image problem once and for all thanks to some help from the newer US Presidential Election articles where the photos of the candidates are separated differently with arrows and such (I don't know really how to describe it). The only problem now that I know of now is that the color for the Radical Republicans for John C. Frémont still isn't showing up. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 15:00, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
  Done Well, I no longer have to worry about the two Guns of the South maps. Thanks to JerrySa1, the article and my GOTS infoboxes both have the appropriate maps. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:10, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 11Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States presidential election in Vermont, 1908, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Georgia.

Thanks for letting me know about that, DPL bot! I just fixed the mistake. Apparently, I must of forgotten to link Georgia to the U.S. state of Georgia. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 15:13, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Help With 1852 US Presidential Elections in Massachusetts and VermontEdit

When I created the articles for the 1852 Presidential Elections in Massachusetts and Vermont, the articles didn't turn out right visually. I've tried to fixed the mistakes I made by accident when I created this new article regarding the 1852 US Presidential Election in Vermont. However, the several additional edits I made haven't helped the article no matter what I did in attempt to fix it. I think the problem is that somehow, the results box somehow ended up below the reference section and the reference link for the source of the election ended by in the results section and screwed up the article. The 1852 election in New Hampshire article also got messed up when I created it, but was fixed just a little while ago (Thank you Mr.Election for fixing the page! I appreciate that very much! :) ). Could someone help me please help with my mistake? I would also appreciate that very much! --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:30, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Diannaa, sorry it took me so long to reply! I hear you. I'll follow your directions for editing next time. By the way, the only thing I copied from the 1836 election article was the mention about Michigan being disputed during the election because it had only became a state on January 26, 1837, and had cast its electoral votes for president before that date and so on so forth with the paragraph. The other stuff about the whole election campaign was added by a user named Bc103693, only to be deleted by him later on. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 19:58, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

AutopatrolledEdit

Hi JCC the Alternate Historian, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:11, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Sorry it took me so long to reply, Anna Frodesiak. Thanks for giving me patroller rights. I appreciate that very much! I enjoy creating articles about US Presidential Elections in the inadvisable states that haven't been created yet. I was surprised on how many that weren't created! Don't worry though, more election articles will be created in July. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:29, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Tagging articlesEdit

Thanks for creating all the US presidential election by state articles. Could you possibly tag the talk pages with {{WikiProject Elections and Referendums|class=stub}} when you create one? I'm doing it at the moment but you are creating rather a lot! Thanks, Number 57 19:30, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello. Another request/reminder to to this. Thanks. Number 57 19:37, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

List of Disney animated shortsEdit

Regarding the YouTube link: YouTube videos are generally not reliable sources, and that link says nothing about where the colorized version came from. If you can't find a better source, then the information shouldn't be included. Trivialist (talk) 21:57, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Trivialist, I see we you undid my revision of the List of Disney animated shorts article, you said that the redarwn version of Mickey's Choo Choo looks like someone colorized it themselves, not something Disney did; not worth mentioning here.

A few things I want to tell you. For starters,I highly doubt that someone could colorize a late 1920s cartoons by themselves. God known how long that could take! Also, the video looks too poor in quality to be colorized by that YouTuber. In addition to that, did you even see the Toon Disney logo in the bottom right corner of the screen if you watched the video? I highly doubt that logo was photoshopped in there. More likely, back in the early 2000s (as evidenced by the 2001-2004 Toon Disney logo), Toon Disney must have been airing some old Mickey Mouse cartoons and that YouTuber recorded it on VHS.

However, while doing some research, I found a website a while back called the Colorized Cartoon Database that contained some information about some black and white cartoons that have been colorized. According to the website, between 1984 and 1992, ten Mickey Mouse cartoons were colorized (the link can be found below me by the way). However, the names of the ten cartoons aren't listed. Well Trivialist, I'll do some more research and find out the origins of the colorized version of Mickey's Choo Choo. See you around.

http://calvincrowe.tripod.com/redrawn/misc.htm#

--JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:38, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

While doing some more research last night, I found out on the List of black-and-white films that have been colorized aticle here on Wikipedia that Mickey's Choo Choo was colorized by the Walt Disney company back in 1991. At least we know that Disney actually colorized this cartoon. The source that was provided on the article is this:[1]

--JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 19:29, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

OK, that works as a source. On a side note, the Mickey's Choo-Choo article doesn't mention the colorization, so it might be worth adding there. Trivialist (talk) 21:07, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

I'll get to it soon Trivialist. Thanks for reminding me about that. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 14:00, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Regarding the colorized Mickey Mouse cartoons, there were also ca 30-50 computer colorized Mickey Mouse http://www.intanibase.com/oldforum/index.php?topic=1976.0 DoctorHver (talk) 22:57, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

  Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. I am glad to see that you are discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Looney Tunes are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic or unrelated topics. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you. SummerPhDv2.0 18:11, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Fine SummerPhDv2.0, I read you loud and clear. By the way, did you see the new message I left on the Looney Tunes: Back in Action talk page? On the talk page, I decided we should move the discussion that you, Trivialist, and I were having about the films competators at the box office to my talk page so we wouldn't waste space discussing the same topic over and over again. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 14:10, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

United States presidential election, 1864 in Harry Turtledove's The Guns of the South Map RequestEdit

In Harry Turtledove's alternate history novel The Guns of the South, we learn the results from the 1864 presidential election in one of the two tables in the back of the book. While I got the information down on my sandbox, I wish I could add a map of the electoral votes from that election. Unfortunately, no such map has been made (at least on either Wikipedia or Wikimedia) to my knowledge. To anyone who sees this request, could you please attempt to make a map of the election results. I will list the information below containing which four candidates won electoral votes from whatever state they carried below. I wish anyone who decides to make this map good luck!

The states that voted for Democratic candidate Horatio Seymour were New York (33), Pennsylvania (26), Ohio (21), Indiana (13), Kentucky (11), Missouri (11), Wisconsin (8), Maryland (7), Oregon (3), and California (5). He won the election and carried these ten states with 138 electoral votes.

The states that Republican incumbent Abraham Lincoln were Maine (7), New Hampshire (5), Vermont (5), Massachusetts (12), Rhode Island (4), Connecticut (6), Michigan (8), West Virginia (5), Illinois (16), Minnesota (4), Iowa (8), and Nevada (3). Lincoln came in second place and carried 12 states with 83 electoral votes.

The other two candidates that were known to win states were Radical Republican John C. Frémont, who only won three electoral votes from Kansas and Independent George McClellan, who only won 10 electoral votes from Delaware (3) and New Jersey (7).

--JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:10, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, I spent all morning today putting the information from the table written down in a notebook. Since I will be creating an election results table om my sandbox, I'll get copy the info from my notebook to there. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:17, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, I finally got the information regarding both presidential elections into a notebook. I've got the popular votes, electoral votes, the states the candidate carried, and the percentage of the votes (US election only). I will attempt to create the two election results tables on my sandbox hopefully tomorrow. It's a job that will probably take up to a few hours to do. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 14:49, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, I guess I stretched the truth on that! Hopefully on Sunday, I can at least try to add the 1864 US Presidential Election and 1867 CS Presidential Election election templates to my talkpage before relocating it to my sandbox. I'll probably start with the US one first. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:20, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

Found mapEdit

Well, I found a map of the election results on DeviantArt of all places. A user by the name of IronPiedmont1996 uploaded an election infobox regarding the Guns of the South 1864 US Presidential Election with a map. I'm not even sure how I am going to get the same map or if I am going to have to ask someone to make on for me. Anyways, a link to the election infobox and map can be found in the link below me.

Confederate States presidential election, 1867 in Harry Turtledove's The Guns of the South Map RequestEdit

In Harry Turtledove's alternate history novel The Guns of the South, we learn the results from the Confederate States 1867 presidential election in one of the two tables in the back of the book. While I spent my weekend writing down information in a notebook that I'll eventually transfer over to my sandbox, I wish I could add a map of the electoral votes from that election. Unfortunately, no such map has been made (at least on either Wikipedia or Wikimedia) to my knowledge. To anyone who sees this request, could you please attempt to make a map of the election results.

Urgent Help With Green Mountain Railroad and Vermont Railway articles!Edit

I need some urgent help with the Green Mountain Railroad and Vermont Railway articles! When I was editing the Green Mountain Railroad articles a short while ago, I decided to add two sources to mention the fates of former units #400 and #401 after they were sold by the GMCR. However, after I completed the edit, the information about #401 somehow moved down into the reference section. I tried fixing the problem, but it didn't help at all!

As for the Vermont Railway article, this is a mistake I made a while back and for some reason hasn't been corrected. Back in July of last year, I moved #301 to the former units section of the article as that diesel was sold to GMTX in late 2015 with four other Vermont Rail System GP40s as deal for FEC SD70M-2s 431/432. That part of the edit went smooth, however, former unit #381 somehow is now clinging to the side of #301's box rather then being underneath it. I have tried several times over the past few months to fix the mistake, but all attempts have failed miserably.

Could I please have some help fixing these mistakes on those two articles? It is very distracting seeing two noticeable mistakes on those articles and me trying and failing to fix them. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 15:40, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Well, Ken Gallager fixed the mistake on the Green Mountain Railroad article, so that's all set. However, the Vermont Railway article still needs that edit to fix the problem that is on that article. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 15:05, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
Ken Gallager also fixed the mistake on the Vermont Railway article, as well. Thank you very much for that! I'm glad that the two problems on those articles are finally fixed. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:21, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

HiEdit

This is unrelated to anything in particular, but I recently saw a couple of wikiboxes and general information in your sandbox, I'm pretty impressed with your AH skills. Would you happen to have an account on AlternateHistory.com by chance? Your wikiboxes would be best suited for the Maps and Graphics section btw. Jerry (talk) 17:32, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Oh, hello Jerry. Thanks for the likes on the infoboxes. Which one is your favorite? As for having an AlternateHistory.com account, I don't but I plan one creating one eventually and I'll put them on the Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes thread. Do you have an account on that site? It would be really nice to stay in touch both here and there once I eventually create an account. You know, I actually got influenced to make infoboxes about characters and events from Family Guy, American Dad! and South Park after looking at gap80's infoboxes based on The Simpsons. Have a nice day! :) --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:39, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
I like the wikiboxes you made for the Southern Victory series the most. Personally I've only read the first two of those books, but I know what happened in the plot already because I've read timelines that involve crossovers of timelines in the user-only sections. I used to have an account on that site, but I left because I felt the mods were way too strict. I still lurk on that account but I don't plan on continuing to post my content there. (Not going to post the username because my Wikipedia name includes portions of my actual name and everything on this site is publicly searchable.) Besides that I haven't had the motivation to do any TL's and keep at doing them.
But yeah, nice to see another Alternate History fan on this site. I'm mostly on the mapping side (And I've gotten pretty good at that as time has gone on), so my wikibox skills aren't actually very good. Too bad I can't really apply my skills to Wikipedia because the maps here are to serve informational needs, and high-quality maps aren't necessary or are detrimental to conveying information, so I can't apply that. :/ Jerry (talk) 00:45, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
To be fair Jerry, the Southern Victory infoboxes aren't originally mine. They were on the Great War and Settling Accounts articles for years before I got hold of them. The ones formally on those two articles were really messy as Hell and I basically took the infoboxes, did a heavy duty clean up job on them, and then put the restored infoboxes on the articles. Oh buy the way Jerry, since you are good with maps, could you perhaps do a favor for me? In Harry Turtledove's novel The Guns of the South, the book goes into detail about two presidential elections that occur (and these details are kinda important). One is an alternate version of the 1864 United States presidential election while the other is the 1867 Confederate States presidential election. Details about those two elections can be found on the Harry Turtledove Wiki, the GOTS Wikipedia article and my Guns of the South sandbox. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 19:40, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
@JCC the Alternate Historian: https://pastebin.com/ir0Avrhq

Both links to the maps are in this pastebin. If there's a problem, just tell me, and if you need any other maps, well you know who to call heh. I haven't done wikibox maps in quite a while, most of the time I make maps more like https://pasteboard.co/Ic8ZOfL.png or https://imgur.com/VK6ckWD

Thanks Jerry, but I have no idea what to do now. How am I suppose to add them to Wikipedia? I've never uploaded photos to Wikipedia before. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:30, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
Oooo...right. I did not think of that. Usually I see wikiboxes being used for purposes outside of wikipedia so I just use inspect element for things outside of wikipedia. Though in this case, it seems that the only way to do that is uploading it on wikimedia.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1867_Confederate_Election.png https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Alt-1864_Union_Election.png


Wow! Thanks Jerry! The maps look nice. However, it looks like you messed up the placements of Lee and Forest on the Confederate Presidential election map. The map shows Lee winning Forest's states and vice versa. Lee (who won Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida) should be red while Forrest (who won South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas) should be blue. Other than that, good job. Well, tomorrow, I guess I'll add both maps to my Guns of the South infoboxes and tell the guys over at the Harry Turtledove Wiki (where I also work) that some maps have become available to use. Don't worry though, I'll make sure to credit you for making the maps. If I need any more help with anything, I'll give you a ring. :) --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 23:00, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Ways to improve Alternate Generals IIEdit

Hello! Regarding Alternate Generals II, please add material from secondary sources that describe the work in an encyclopedic, real-world context, as encyclopedia articles should not simply be summary-only descriptions of works. Cheers, --Animalparty! (talk) 04:45, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Third party sourcesEdit

Per your recreations of Alternate Generals I, II and III, and your query, third party sources (also called secondary sources) are sources that are independent of the subject itself, the creator, publisher, etc. Book reviews, news coverage, and scholarly journals are some of the many possible sources that turn an article from a trivial showcasing of content into an encyclopedic article discussing the significance of a work. As I mentioned above, Wikipedia articles should not be summary-only descriptions of works. This is not my personal opinion, it is one of the policies of What Wikipedia is not: Wikipedia treats creative works (including, for example, works of art or fiction, video games, documentaries, research books or papers, and religious texts) in an encyclopedic manner, discussing the development, design, reception, significance, and influence of works in addition to concise summaries of those works. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a bare bones database of short stories. For more information regarding summaries, see Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Writing about fiction. You've been editing long enough to understand that a subject needs significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject itself to demonstrate notability. Please strive to expand articles with reliable secondary sources. Cheers, --Animalparty! (talk) 00:31, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

I'm writing some election redirectsEdit

Hello JCC the Alternate Historian,

I have recently been creating many redirect pages for the presidential elections at the state levels. Since a majority of the state results of presidential elections have written with the exception of many early ones; this might be another "frontier" of sorts and I'm wondering if you'd like to help me out.

Also, I would like to congratulate you on many of your pages you've written for the presidential elections. Your efforts have tremendously helped with the presidential elections and keeping them better documented.

Thank you, --Skim

You're welcome Skim, glad to help out! :) It is kinda weird how the election articles were redirected in late 2018 but most of the links on the articles were not. Even after over a year, a lot of presidential election articles are still like that for some reason. I'm just helping out with that as much as I can one presidential election article at a time. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 21:29, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

"Assume"Edit

Here in Wikipedia, nothing is "assumed", period. Mostly referring to this, but I can not be arsed to review every edit on similar topics you might have made. --Prospero One (talk) 10:31, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

The Liberating Alaska article is over two years old at this point. I'm surprised no one has complained about it until now. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 19:14, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Your pleaEdit

Re [1]. You can remove the PROD proposal yourself, but the sources right now are very poor and the article is unlikely to survive AfD, just like dozen+ of other characters and locations from that series that already got deleted within the last month or so. But nothing is lost, this kind of stuff can be written up at https://ttte.fandom.com/wiki/Gordon_the_Big_Engine . Unfortunately, Wikipedia has policies like WP:GNG/WP:NFICTION that limit what we can have. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 00:53, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Is the talk page on the Gordon article the appropriate place for debating if the article is going to be kept or not? If not, do you known the place where it can be debated and could ya link it for me so I can get to it? Also, I added two more sources to the article a couple of days, that should be enough to keep the article. I'm pretty sure five sources is enough to keep it. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 20:44, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
For a WP:PROD, it is. However, the page may be deleted if the PROD is not declined. But you are welcome to decline it yourself per WP:PROD, at which point the page may be subject to a wider discussion at WP:AFD if someone will start it (which I may, for example). Number of sources is less important than their quality. Sources need to be reliable, independent and in-depth (see WP:RS, wP:GNG). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:13, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Imperial unitsEdit

Don't restore challenged content without providing reliable sources. "I read it in another Wikipedia article" is not a source. Neither is another Wikipedia article. If the claims are reliably sourced in the other articles then you may reuse those sources. You have been here long enough that you should know this. Meters (talk) 02:38, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Alright Meters, I'll take your word for it. Sorry for starting that mini edit war with you. I couldn't find any sources regarding why Canada still uses miles and miles per hour on its railways. I did find a source on the Rail regulations in Canada article saying that Canadian Railways still use miles, but I don't think it's what either of us would be looking for. --JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 22:00, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Southern Victory discussionEdit

Hi JCC, as one of the few editors who does a lot of work on alternate history article I wonder if you might want to make a comment at the discussion here about the Southern Victory series? I see the alt-hist project got pinged for the previous discussions but no-one seems to have responded to that. FOARP (talk) 19:58, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
