Untitled[edit]

How do you add sources? I wrote everything from memory, but this page http://www.kcumb.edu/visitors/timeline.asp verifies what I wrote.

There are a lot of ways to do it, if it's an internet source the easiest way is to put the address of the source inside single brackets at the end of the passage that it's a citation for, like this [1]. Wikipedia:Citing sources explains this.--P4k 05:34, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

First, thank you for your time in contributing to Wikipedia, and your candor regarding your connection (and conflict of interest) with Kansas City University is greatly appreciated. I have reviewed your suggestions, and incorporated many of them into the article. I have also made further adjustments to the article. Whenever possible, it is best to seek out references to third party sources, to ensure neutrality. I will return at a later time to work on the article further. Thanks again!

Thank you! I appreciate your expedient response to our suggested edits as well as the time you spent editing. I will keep your suggestion in mind about the external sources as well. That makes perfect sense. Ableds2 (talk) 21:51, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
