I have a few issues about what is being written here at the moment. - Huttite 06:03, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

Wikipedia copyright violation[edit]

The text copied from Wikipedia is a copyright violation. Simply ammending the text does not fix the original issue, but only compounds it. And some of it is still a copyright violation, even after being ammended! Frankly, if I want to know about the history of Fort Washington I would be better off going and reading the Wikipedia article. The changes that have been made actually have removed all the historically significant information and the article is the poorer for it. Since the purpose of a copyright notice is to obtain a copyright release, and no release has been forthcoming, even though the page has been edited, I can only presume that the contributor does not hold or claim copyright, so the copyrighted text should be removed. The most effective way to do this is to delete the History section and distribute the facts into the rest of the article. - Huttite

Template headings[edit]

Template headings are to serve as a guide for what we write about. They should not be deleted. If you cannot fill out the template sections then it suggests that Fort Washington does not deserve to be an article and should be deleted. - Huttite 06:03, 18 March 2009 (EDT)


So much of what has been written so far is not about Fort Washington but is really about other places. If you want to write about those places the write about them in articles about those places, not Fort Washington. Don't distract me with irrelevant information that is not about Fort Washington, tell me about Fort Washington. In an article about Fort Washington, focus on Fort Washington! This is a travel guide, tell me why I should go to Fort Washington, not why I should avoid or leave it. - Huttite 06:03, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

Get out section[edit]

I have moved everything I thought was about other places into the get out section. It would be a good idea to merge that information into the other articles, or write new ones about those places if need be, rather than not writing about Fort Washington in this article. - Huttite 06:03, 18 March 2009 (EDT)
