July 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding or significantly changing content without citing a reliable source, as you did with this edit to College tuition in the United States, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. Nasnema  Chat  16:14, 9 July 2011 (UTC)


Huh? I thought that I cited my sources --go back and look -- what do you mean that I did not cite my source? Sorry -- new to this stuff, but I thought I followed the Wikipedia rules here -- I have heard rumors of childish arguments on this website, and if you are serious with what you said, then this makes a good case that I should not join your website:

I followed the rules, and yet you deleted my posts, falsely claiming that I did not cite my sources. Maybe there was a misunderstanding; could you please clarifiy? Thank you!

Canvassing[edit]

You have requested the same assistance regarding editing the article College tuition in the United States from at least eight different editors. This contravenes WP:CANVASSING, and may be seen as disruptive editing by some. --Alan the Roving Ambassador (talk) 18:45, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

you are right -- I was indeed 'canvassing' -but I am new to all this, and did not mean to cause trouble -- I only wanted to make sure it got prompt attention.
But I did not want to put all my eggs in 1 basket & hope that it would be seen -- so I had to diversity -- LOL -sorry.
Maybe I should have found the vandalism page & just posted there one request for help --would that have been the right step?
Lastly: I owe you all restitution as well as an apology: What should I do to correct my misstep? Remove the posts on those editors' pages?71.101.40.113 (talk) 18:49, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

College tuition thing[edit]

Hey welcome to Wikipedia, someone seems to of fixed the problem but like others I'd warn against canvassing etc. like others have, if you have a concern go to the talk page or undo the edit with an explanation.

Anyways for what it's worth your edits were very helpful. CartoonDiablo (talk) 19:31, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you -- I think that maybe I should have found the 'Vandalism Reporting' page and just reported it there, since it appears nobody monitors the talk page for that article. -- Yes, canvassing is bad, but I had little choice -- maybe the vandalism reporting page would work just as well. Would that be a good way to handle vandlaism you think?71.101.40.113 (talk) 19:33, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
PS: I was afraid to undo this editor's edit, since he/she was a registered editor. I wanted other editors' concensus before doing anything more -- which I got. Thank you all.71.101.40.113 (talk) 19:34, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
