Just out of curiosity, I know you're an alumnus, were you an undergrad? What dorm? "Eccekevin ("talk) 19:57, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I graduated in 1980 (B.A., Economics). I lived in Lewis Hall. My M.B.A. is from Loyola Chicago in 1982. It was before ND had a MBA program in downtown Chicago, otherwise I would have gone to ND for that also. At the time, they only had a full-time program in Indiana, and although I was accepted, I turned it down so I could move back to my hometown in the W. Suburbs and commute downtown to Loyola's Graduate School of Business. Cheers! "Funandtrvl ("talk) 20:54, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
That's great! I hope you get to visit often. Also, if you're interested, the current Lewis Hall section Hall is severly lacking. I found good sources , but I don't have time to work on it.

Talk:London Overground[edit]

What parameter errors did this edit fix? Surely it would have been better to fix the params instead of killing the whole box? --"Redrose64 ("talk) 10:11, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

It was the "reporting mark" parameter, I went back and fixed it to "marks", so the page won't be in the template parameter issues category. Actually, I added back the "reporting marks" to the infobox public transit for backwards compatibility, because I found over 50+ pages that were using the old parameter, and I believe I made the edit to that talk page before I completed that task.

"Vicky Jenson birth year[edit]

Vicky Jenson (II)[edit]

I contacted Vicky Jenson to request the release of an image for her article, and she said that the birthdate now in the article is for a different animator also named Vicky Jenson (apparently this one, not this one), and that her year of birth is 1960. This website, admittedly of unclear reliability, asserts a birth date of April 1, 1960. "bd2412 "T 14:37, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Ok, now I'm confused! Is the Vicky that is in the article and that you contacted I or II in IMDb? "Funandtrvl ("talk)
I contacted the Vicky Jenson from the article (the co-director of Shrek). She indicated that she thinks the other Vicki Jenson was born in 1957, and sent me a scan of her birth certificate, which shows her own birth year as 1960. "bd2412 "T 01:12, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Those suburbs are the north/northwest and far north suburbs, so it is not all that convenient. Do you have a way for me to look up the requests in my area, like in a category or on Commons?
