Help with Birch Society Page
You recently reverted an edit I made to the Birch Society page; can you explain why or edit the page to insert the valuable, accurate information I added? There is indeed a widespread impression that the Birch Society is “radical right.” When most people think of the "radical right" they instinctively think of the religious right and Republican Party. I can supply you with endless examples of the fact that the JBS has been consistently and vehemently critical of the GOP for decades both for doling our billions in corporate welfare and for waging unconstitutional military operations, both overt and covert, all over the world. On both of these issues they align with the progressive left (though they would part with the left on what to do once the troops were home). Did you know this? If it is true, don’t you agree it is worth noting on the Wiki page? (I can supply endless links directly to their website and literature to prove this to you, but you’ll have to email me because I am just getting familiar with joining the talking/editing discussions and stumbling through the process. My email is redacted) 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:21, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
- (talk page stalker) To Katieh5584: This is political, and seems to be resolved. The IP above has carried the conversations over at K6ka's page, DoctorJoeE's page, and the article's talk page. I think they have enough help as it is.

I received you message regarding an unsupported entry for Enrique Graf left from this IP address. This is a shared computer and it is likely that another individual made the entry. Can you be more specific as to the entry which was made so I can contact the individual for a citation? Thank you!188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:11, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
- Hi, I'm not Katieh5584 but will answer for her. I don't think any action is necessary: it looks like baseless, off-topic vandalism, and has been undone to protect the individual from libel.
- Here is the permalink to the edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Enrique_Graf&diff=prev&oldid=605940569, which added the claim
"He resigned after being accused of sexual harassment by a student."

KFSR on Wikipedia
Thank you for being friendly in your communications. The "Red Pen of Doom" breaks all the Wikipedia policies I've read about effective communication, courtesy and consideration.
Information on the Wikipedia page about KFSR Radio is incorrect. Specifically, the current logo, the "Call Sign Meaning", and there are wide gaps in the history of the radio station. There is also some very basic information about current programming/formatting as well as delivery (online streaming) information that is completely missing. I am simply trying to provide that information as a reliable "source".
With that being said, I understand that Wikipedia requires source references. Wikipedia lists a "source" as an article or book, from a writer or journalist, or a publisher. It cites that authors who are regarded as authoritative in relation to the subject can also be considered reliable sources. Further, it states that the term "published" can also include materials that are broadcast. As the Program Director and on-air host of the station, I am a journalist, an authority in relation to the subject and this information is broadcast daily.
Please tell me how I can go about providing Wikipedia with a better source of information about this radio station than the very individuals who are considered "sources" and broadcast "publishers" of the product?
Please guide me in how, as a media entity, our "media sources" can be produced by a reliable third party and be properly cited.
- (talk page stalker) Hi, I'm not Katieh5584 (I read her mail here).
- Although it appears you've read some policies on Wikipedia such as WP:Civility or Help:Referencing, you seem to be missing TheRedPenOfDoom's attempts at following the core policy of WP:NPOV (neutral point-of-view), which is equally important.
- The WP:Plain and simple conflict of interest guide might help you. Simply put, being an official representative (or the like) gives you less leeway here: it imparts a WP:Conflict of interest in your editing, and jeopardizes the neutrality of the writing; part of Wikipedia's mission is to achieve neutral synthesis about subjects, and we take one-sided editing very seriously here. Neither Katie, nor I, can help you any further, but wish you well in your goal to improve the accuracy of that article.
- If you have a problem with the article, take it up with the WP:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard and explain what you want changed. If you explain that the logo and company history are factually inaccurate, they should be able to assist, and may help guide you to reliable sources to back those statements up.
- More general questions (such as how to edit, technical aspects of editing, sourcing and the like) may be directed to the WP:Help Desk, a team of volunteers who answer questions. If you're stuck, it's always a good place to go.

Conflict of interest on Claudia Keelan
Hi Katieh, I'm writing to suggest that the editing of my page Claudia Keelan is not a conflict of interest, and the deletion of the new entry isn't appropriate, as the page is years out of date and does not show the current state of the author's career. I wonder if you could send me my edits, and suggest what in the entry is inappropriate for Wikipedia's guidelines. I understand that the link to the video from The Berlin Poetry festival which was posted on Youtube, may demonstrate a copyright problem with Wikipedia, though all rights reverted to me upon filming. I'd really appreciate your help in making an entry that will not violate any of Wikipedia's guidelines. Thanks for all you do!
- (talk page stalker) (Not Katieh, just answering her mail) Still there? Sometimes I take awhile to get back to people.
- Based on your username, I'm guessing you are the person you are writing about; hence, you are writing an autobiography. I must caution you that content guidelines state that it's never a good idea to change the biography of your page unless something is factually inaccurate (such as where you grew up, the year you were born, etc.)
- Anything else is discouraged, because it's simply human nature to write about ourselves in a positive, promotional way—something that can upset the neutral tone Wikipedia is to be written in.
- I don't think the problem is copyright or "fair use" so much as...um...spam. I see you've added more external links, which already is pushing the guideline for external links (generally only one is permitted). We can leave the article where it is for now, but I don't think you should add any more links (that's not what the site is for). I also see you've been adding awards you've received recently. Wikipedia is not a resumé and should not be used as a means of promotion. I'm not sure that you should be editing your entry at all, really. It's definitely not recommended.
I wonder if you could send me my edits, and suggest what in the entry is inappropriate for Wikipedia's guidelines.
- Your edits are located at the top of the Wikipedia editing window, under "contributions". You can view them at any time by clicking on the link. Also, clicking "View history" on any page will show you who edited what and when. (Help:Contributions)
- I hope that answered your questions. Regards, meteor_sandwich_yum (talk) 04:45, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
