Can you please credit your sources (Gaebler Children's Center) when posting images? It's frustrating to do all the research and legwork and then seeing that work posted without a single credit.

Thank you, John

After looking at your website, we will give credit to the original credit holder: Dr. Philip A. DiMattia M-Explorer (talk) 14:47, 21 May 2019 (MDT)
Also, to add on to what John posted, user:CranstonAsylums please make sure to give credit when credit is due. If you can cite where you got your images, even if it is your own work, that allows us to credit the original creator of the images. This also includes you if you created the images.

I apologize I will cite from now on I had no ill intent it just never crossed my mind to do so originally due to the age of the photos but I will from now on. My main objective is just to try and put all pieces of history I find in one place to try and preserve it for all those curious as I very much am. Epically of Gaebler which is one of the the places I am most focused on researching.

My apologies, CranstonAsylums


Please cite your rationale for making a major article change like changing article titles? M-Explorer (talk) 16:14, 14 August 2019 (MDT)

Dexter has never been referred to as "Dexter State hospital" nor has it ever been owned by the state it was owned by the city of Providence and has only been called "Dexter Asylum"

My sources:

The reason I’m getting involved is that you’re asking/looking for a major change to an article. One that will mess up a few things if not handled right. However, I will go with your reasoning. Give me a few moments to do it correctly. Sorry, I have gotten skitterish with article name changes after various people wanted to rename articles to names they thought it should be and created havoc in the past. Give me ten minutes to make the necessary changes then you can have at it. M-Explorer (talk) 16:25, 14 August 2019 (MDT)

No problem at all. I understand and agree that it should not be so easy to do something as big as change the name of an article.

All done, have at it! :) M-Explorer (talk) 16:32, 14 August 2019 (MDT)
