SelfnomFor You know what, I'm gonna nom this. It's basically a true story told to me by either me, my father, my uncle, a former neighbor, or by someone else. And it's one I tried to get some national American sports reporters interested in, and a major one wanted to write about it but got turned down by his editor (and he wasn't happy). Getting this featured may kick-start the story - an interesting part of real baseball history - and will surely put the page high on the search engine list for 'Will Harridge' (EDIT: It's number six on google. More, more!). Thanks for a read. Aleister 21:50 26-2-'13
For. It's great. Reminds me of the song "I am the Monarch of the Sea" by Gilbert and Sullivan British comedy opera writers in which the Lord High Admiral of the Royal Navy sings about how he's never been on a ship or been sea before and got the job by working hard as a bank clerk in London. Same story for Will Harridge it seems. Sir ScottPatUnSCUNVFH (talk) 07:14, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
This has been on VFH for 77 days, and some users haven't yet weighed in. We are a slow moving lot now, laid back and talking slow in the sun. Pass me the brisket, someone, and open another cool one. Thanks. Aleister 15:40 13-5-'13
I wouldn't be too obvious Al. I once mentioned to Spike on his talk page that my article: Capitalism: in grammar it had received (7/1) on VFH, which was highest on there and yet it hadn't been featured despite the fact that (5/0) and (6/0) articles were and I got this reply:
"VFH is graded on a curve, it changes over time, and Admins have great latitude, so that a vote with a sensible rationale, in practice, carries more weight than a vote with no explanation at all. The other, more important, part about the previous lesson not to pester individual voters is not to pester Admins about evaluating the votes. What spreads across this site much faster than individual recognition is the recognition that certain Uncyclopedians are too anxious about it."

You may have misread me. I'm glad it's still on VFH, which was my point. 77 days is awhile, so I'm grateful that the admins have left it up, not asking for it to be featured. Five is not enough votes to have something featured. I figure with the rate of voting nowadays, if it clears 7 it's doing well. It'd be nice if Spike read this page and commented, simply because Spike's comments are usually very very entertaining and pointed, and usually include large chunks of good advice and information. I agree totally with the quote from Spike you posted. But the more interesting thing is that this page is mostly true, about the autographs at least. A great deal of the American League's old documents and correspondance was taken to with scissors. The page's description of the office policy of the president emirutus of the American League is near exactly how it happened. Aleister 18:36 13-5-'13
