Untitled old thread[edit]

There are two assertions about LaGuardia which are ill-documented:

The college has been named a National Institution of Excellence (Policy Center on the First Year of College) and 1 of the "Top 3 Large Community Colleges in the U.S." (Community College Survey of Student Engagement, 2002).

Properly speaking, it should have a page reference, etc. Also, do these documents exist online?

Editing Repeats[edit]

There seems to be an editing of adding and removing of LaGuardia's suppose corruption by the same author with a different name, while another unregistered user is removing that very content. Please fix the neutrality of said corruption with more than a singular reference. FireAllianceNX (talk) 15:48, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

FireAllianceNX, it's not the same person adding and removing the "supposed" (not "suppose") corruption. I have done what I could to support and document my assertions. Unfortunately, the memos I referred to are not part of the public record that I have ready access to. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CUNYTruther (talkcontribs) 16:07, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

A certain C. Jason Smith deleted, no, censored, the critical stuff from the website. Bet he could find a great position in some tin-pot dictatorship. But this is Wikipedia. He deletes, I restore. CUNYTruther (talk) 03:46, 19 May 2010 (UTC)


--Unfortunately, I agree with the deletions. The section "Dissent" section is, by its very nature and title, opinion.-- doktorjericho

--Dissent by its very nature is opinion? It is documented. This is pure censorship and you are a censor. You delete, I restore. CUNYTruther (talk) 21:47, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

--Couldn't help but noticing that the two IP addresses of LaGuardia's censors come from within LaGuardia Community College. Surprise surprise! You delete, I restore. CUNYTruther (talk) 14:37, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

--Charles A Elias: "Deleted section since this is a hateful and spiteful attack against LaGuardia Community College with the intent to steer visitors to another site that furthers a personal agenda to discredit college." So this is why you are censoring me?It is documented. Are there any untruths on it? Of course not. My motives are irrelevant for Wikipedia. What counts is, is it documented and accurate. You delete, I restore. CUNYTruther (talk) 21:04, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

One of the problem I see is this, all the sources are linked to the same site. Said site is not a primary source nor a reputable source. Please use more than this single source to support this section (Or use the references on the site instead of linking to the site that takes you to another reference. FireAllianceNX (talk) 05:02, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. Further edit warring in the face of a growing consensus will certainly result in being blocked. ElKevbo (talk) 16:31, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

"One of the problem [sic] I see is this, all the sources are linked to the same site." Then you seriously need glasses. This is manifestly false.

There are some links to one site which refers to documents which are not online. Since this is the only site which refers to these documents, we have no choice but to use it as a reference. CUNYTruther (talk) 15:50, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Kevin Guidry. Seems you even censor my discussion here. You deleted my answer to FireAlliance. Good boy. You've got a great future as censor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CUNYTruther (talkcontribs) 16:34, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Ah, you're right - I missed your response after you replaced this entire discussion with a copy of the article. I've restored it; my apologies for missing this! ElKevbo (talk) 16:45, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
None of the sources used by Laguardiatruther are sufficiently reliable for such strong claims - and it assigns much too much onesided weight to the criticism and corruption allegations. ·Maunus·ƛ· 17:05, 14 June 2010 (UTC)


Non-free media upload[edit]

I'd like to add the LAGCC logo to this page as non-free media. On what type of page should I do so? — Preceding unsigned comment added by M&clag (talkcontribs) 19:20, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

That would be great! Essentially, you just need to (a) upload the image, (b) place the correct templates on the image description page, and (c) add it to this article. When I upload a college or university seal/logo, I almost always just copy the templates from another university seal/logo and tweak them appropriately; usually the only thing that needs to be changed is the name of the institution and the article(s) to which you will be adding the image. This would be one example you could copy (although you'd have to also remove the svg template if the image you're uploading is not an svg image).
Please let us know if you need help or more detailed instructions! ElKevbo (talk) 21:46, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
