On Air Staff in TV Station Articles[edit]

This has been a note of contention several times over the past year; there have been a number of stations where posters have gotten carried away and posted every photojournalist, producer, editor and the management staff. As a result, a number of those articles have gotten inordinately long -- I can't point you to the specific archive in the talk area where this was discussed (actually it's at least three archive areas), but the conversation has been had. I do understand that the individual you refer to is a special case; in order to avoid confusion, I'd suggest noting that he is, indeed counted as on-air staff to deal with the on-air proviso. --Mhking (talk) 21:02, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Northern Michigan television stations[edit]

I've noticed you have been editing WWTV and WFQX and I have a couple of questions. First, I want to refer you to recent announcements from WFQX and WPBN about their transition to digital broadcasting. WFQX created an article here about broadcasting in the Upper Peninsula. Specifically, I don't think they mention adding WFQX to WWTV-DT2. Also, WWUP's transmitter is located in Gatesville. As for WPBN, I'm currently in the process of adding that information. They have an article here. I've been editing on Wikipedia for at least a year and a half. Some of your edits in the articles change format, language, grammar etc. I welcome these changes as I sometimes write too much and don't consider the readability of an article. If you have any questions about what I write in an article, don't hesitate to ask me. Strafidlo (talk) 05:23, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Follow Up[edit]

Since you do say you work at WWTV, would there ever be a possibility of WFQX gaining secondary MyNetworkTV affiliation? If not, what is the closest affiliate to the area? Strafidlo (talk) 04:17, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

May 2009[edit]

Sorry if I've accidentally done something bad tonight--certainly not my intention, but I'm stopping for the day, as I have a serious case of the TOS (touch of s**t). Everything I've touched today has broken. (No, you can't prove it, but I tried to print something at work and the print server crashed. And I tried to import some video and it wouldn't import correctly. And I tried to transfer some spots and they wouldn't transfer correctly.) I don't think I caused any problems in the little bit I was editing tonight, but if I did, my deepest apologies. So I'm stopping for the day until I stop breaking things...:-) Benscripps (talk) 23:31, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

What tool do you use for correcting spelling errors? I like the default edit summary on yours better than what I'm using currently. --spazure (contribs) (review) 00:56, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm afraid I'm an old-school kinda guy--I've just been picking words on the list, then opening the search results in tabs and doing them one at a time. The edit summary is just a wiki link to WP:TYPO and the misspelled word followed by the corrected version--like this:

[[WP:TYPO|Fixing spelling]] rehersal --> rehearsal

Just all dirty manual labor. I wish I had something easy/cross-platform to automate it, but I'm pretty good at repetitious work (not proud, but good), so it's nothing much...:-) Benscripps (talk) 05:49, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh wow, insanity. I just copied the script for Lupin to my mono.js and changed the edit summary they have there to what I want mine to be. It speeds up the process immensely. =^_^= Thanks for the response! --spazure (contribs) (review) 06:18, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Your addition to the oxyhydrogen article[edit]

From your own source:

Water and an onboard electrolyzer cannot be used to power a fuel cell or hydrogen ICE vehicle because of the large amount of electricity required to operate the electrolyzer.

— NRen2k5(TALK), 20:39, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Whoops. I see it now. The offending edit was done by an IP before you (and survived for weeks - yikes!). Sorry about that. — NRen2k5(TALK), 20:40, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Station personnel[edit]

I've begun to notice that listing on-air personnel is not happening anymore. I was not aware of this change. Has there been a consensus made regarding this? Strafidlo (talk) 00:22, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Per the Article Structure section of WP:TVS, information on a station's personalities is considered part of a television station's article. I am aware of no change, but would suspect that, were there such a change, it would be reflected in said article. Benscripps (talk) 20:33, 9 April 2010 (UTC)


What's wrong with the WFQX logo I added? It is clearly a better logo and identifies the general branding not news. Strafidlo (talk) 22:17, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

It may be a cleaner image of the logo, but it's also not correct. The station logo includes the "News" bar at the bottom; there are no uses of the logo anywhere on- or off-air that crop the logo like that. If it'd had that "News" bar on it, I would've left it alone. (Meant to put that in the edit summary, but I clicked the wrong link, and before I knew it, it was a done deal.) Benscripps (talk) 23:47, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

The original source had a logo with news in it. I can update it and then add it back to the article. I also want to update the WFQX and WWTV pages as I have done with WPBN and WGTU. Strafidlo (talk) 00:28, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

That's fine--you certainly don't need my permission. :-) My biggest concern is accuracy. As long as it's right, that's the important thing. (Okay, and it should be well-written. My two concerns are accuracy and good writing and nice red uniforms. Bah...I'll come in again.) Benscripps (talk) 20:32, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Your input is needed on the SOPA initiative[edit]

Hi Benscripps,

You are receiving this message either because you expressed an opinion about the proposed SOPA blackout before full blackout and soft blackout were adequately differentiated, or because you expressed general support without specifying a preference. Please ensure that your voice is heard by clarifying your position accordingly.

Thank you.

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey Benscripps; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:14, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

My edits AREN"T constructive... i would know because I made them! xD (talk) 20:59, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Great. Glad to know you're aware of your unconstructive edits. I hope you'll stop them. Thanks!  Space-Age Meat  21:02, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

(Personal attack removed)[edit]

Read the edit summary first(Personal attack removed)


When you see the particular message left by IP's on other users' talk pages, there is no need to (spend your time to) warn. The user uses TekSavvy Solutions (Canada) as their ISP and is hopping IP + evading blocks. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 🖉 23:11, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the info--I picked up my first bit of personal attack on my own page this afternoon and another user fixed it for me, so when I saw some pop up on another user's page, I figured I'd pay it forward, but I'll skip the warnings from now on... Space-Age Meat  23:18, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
In fact if you see a specific type of personal attack for the first few times, it's always good to give the general warnings. If the same person repeatedly comes back (even under different username/IP), then just revert them and business as usual, warning won't change anything at this stage. When you help keep the community clean, you will expect harassment toward yourself because those people are what they are here for. Maintaining a "no hard feeling" state is probably the best way to handle this. Cheers. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 🖉 03:59, 8 September 2017 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure my comment was harmless. What is vandalism to a leftist? Somebody who doesn't agree with you. Four legs good Chief! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:44, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
