Thank you for your wiki tips. I enjoyed the nature photos on your RedHawke website.

Could you please tell me how to create the spoiler warning using the yellow template? Thank you.

Chesapeake picture

I should have explained. I took it from Wikipedia. Here's the link --

The image page in Wikipedia identified the picture as follows: "This image is a work of a sailor or employee of the U.S. Navy, taken or made during the course of the person's official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain."

By the way, I did not use the Wikipedia article as a source for any of the content that I added to the WikiPobia page. I had not even read it before I made the substantive additions and changes to the WikiPobia article. I just took the picture from it. Paulster13 04:18, 17 March 2008 (GMT)

Forty thieves or Forty Thieves?

I know Wikipedia prefers Uppercase lowercase for titles but this usually has both letters capitalised so perhaps it should be an exception? Aquinas 00:56, 20 May 2008 (BST)

It kinda drops in that grey area, doesn't it?  :-) I have no problem with both being capitalized; I don't supposed there are any primary resources that use capitalization for both? --LadyShelley 01:08, 20 May 2008 (BST)
The Ionian Mission Chapter 1 has Forty Thieves. Aquinas 01:55, 20 May 2008 (BST)
I meant more along the line of Naval documents of the time. --LadyShelley 02:32, 20 May 2008 (BST)
Not exactly a contemporary Naval document but the House of Lords Hansard of June 12 1815 (search Google books for "Forty Thieves" +ship) reports a debate and the report uses the double capitals. Aquinas 03:11, 20 May 2008 (BST)
Then I'd say that's enough precedent to accept the double capital for the article title. --LadyShelley 04:23, 20 May 2008 (BST)
