WSTB-FM?[edit]

In keeping with the convention established at Wikipedia:WikiProject Radio Stations, should this article be moved to WSTB-FM? -- SwissCelt 13:50, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

Actually, I think the article title should be simply WSTB, since that is the official callsign for this station as listed in the FCC database, not WSTB-FM. Currently there is a redirect from WSTB to WSTB (FM). There is no reason for the parenthetical FM since this is the only station that is identifed as WSTB and, as far as I know, there is no other meaning for WSTB, i.e., it is not an acronym for anything. --Hillrhpc 04:40, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

I suppose I did it that way just in case there was another meaning/acronym for WSTB with which I am not aware. But you do have a point, in that WSTB (FM) is not intuitive. I'll concede to anyone wanting to move the article to WSTB. Call for votes, or do you want to just do it? -- SwissCelt 05:40, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
I did a Google search and I could not find any WSTB that is likely to be the title of a Wikipedia article other than this radio station. Let's just move it. But first, let's wait a week to see if anyone else chimes in on this page. --Hillrhpc 02:15, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Some time ago (19 April 2006), this article was edited extensively, changing the history sections. I just discovered that those edits violate the copyright of the Streetsboro City Schools, as the rewrite appears verbatim on WSTB's website. Per WP:COPYVIO, I reverted to the last good edit. Unfortunately, in so doing many acceptable edits were by necessity lost. Please feel free to reintroduce those edits, so long as they do not violate copyright. Thank you. -- SwissCelt 13:45, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Wow, 6 years later. I removed the history sections as they were all simply cut-and-pasted from the station's website. Citing that history is certainly OK, but not lifting it verbatim and just dropping it here. On top of that, the history is too detailed for this kind of article anyway. A rewrite should A) use the editor's own words, and B) focus on the most important items in the subject's history, not every detail. No point in having the same history here if a reader can simply click on the link to the actual history and read it there. --JonRidinger (talk) 20:46, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
