Fair Lawn[edit]

Additionally, Weird NJ has also been responsible for saving the historical copper dome in the town center of Fair Lawn, which was scheduled to be torn down after a fire destroyed the building it sat upon.

Is this really true? I assume this is referring to the Radburn clock tower, which isn't a dome and I don't think Weird NJ had anything to do with that.


When I rewrote the article I left out the part about a controversy about the Ramapough Mountains Indians because I could not find any evidence that the controversy was that significant (or existed, but Im sure it did). I also could not find any information about any controversy about promoting tresspassing which I vaguely remember, does anyone know anymore?


Is there really any reason to mention the websites? They aren't really anything more than ads and portals for basic information about the magazine and books. It's like mentioning that Coca-Cola has a website, or CNN. Everyone has a website.

- Really, I don't see any reason why NOT to include the website. It's convenient for the user who wants to go on to the primary source. If I'm reading about CNN, I would find it convenient to be able to click directly to the CNN site to see for myself. Same here. (D.B. Echo, Feb. 19, 2006)

Exactly...Those are the official websites. They're a part of what "Weird NJ" is. It is relevant. Michael 08:31, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Weird NJ cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Weird NJ cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Perhaps you might want to create a new article, "List of Weird States books" or something like that. For lots of examples of other "Lists" articles, see List of lists of lists (no kidding). Cheers! Reify-tech (talk) 16:02, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

I started this page in 2004, although the history will just show my IP back then... not bragging, just showing my love for Weird NJ ! Spettro9 (talk) 05:03, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
