Edit-a-thon in Madison[edit]

Madison Public Library interior (9913742865).jpg
I saw that you live in Milwaukee (based on your userpage), so if you're interested, I wanted to invite you to a humanities edit-a-thon in the Madison Public Library on Friday, April 25th (1:30–3:30). It'll be on the shorter side and is aimed at new editors, but I hope to see you there. More information is available on the 2014 UW Conference on the Public Humanities website. Let me know if you have any questions czar  04:39, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry to see that you've pretty much stopped editing here; I hope that's a temporary situation[edit]

Even if you weren't a fellow UW-M alumn, I think you had a pretty darned record and a fine style in things like confronting vandals. --Orange Mike | Talk 03:27, 6 September 2014 (UTC) (editing Wikipedia in the first-floor computer lab instead of going to Pantherfest)

See, it's funny that you just posted this, as I was just thinking about my Wikipedia editing days during my drive into campus this morning. Perhaps it's time I fire up the good 'ole Huggle and get back to vandalism patrol! Bped1985 (talk) 05:00, 6 September 2014 (UTC) (Editing Wikipedia from my house instead of going to Pantherfest)

Mcneese State University[edit]

I added a simple line about MSU's new Basketball complex that you marked as vandalism. I was on the page looking for some info and saw that no one had added the new complex so I did so. I am the source. I drive by it daily as I am a student there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.217.72.81 (talk) 04:15, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, If you look at the message I left on your talk page, you'll see that I didn't mark your edit as vandalism. I posted a notice that the statement you inserted into the article needed to have a verifiable source. Reference WP:VERIFY for questions about this. Shouldn't be hard to find a source on a building project- campus news article etc. Thanks! Bped1985 (talk) 01:22, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Edit to CBSSN[edit]

Hi, new to this so here goes! I updated without citation because i could not find one on the Bell TV website, I can assure you though that the channel has been dropped from the Bell TV services. As of August 21, 2014 channels 413 and 1413 are no longer active and have not been reassigned. As i had subscribed to the channel, and have not yet received a reply from Bell as to why it was dropped, the only option for a citation would be the list of programming on the Bell home page http://www.bell.ca/Bell_TV/Products/Best_Package, which when refining by sports channels it is now absent from the channel list. It was a favorite of mine, now its gone, not happy! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.100.52.255 (talk) 02:11, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! I don't necessarily doubt that the channel has been dropped, but all content on Wikipedia must have a source cited. And, the listing of channels isn't an ideal source, but it could work. Have you tried looking to Google for a news story? Bped1985 (talk) 19:40, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Yep First thing i did, Unfortunately nothing exists except on blogs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.71.254.90 (talk) 04:03, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

package managers page edit[edit]

Hi,

it is relevant that the hp-ux package manager is not "proprietary" since, if you research the topic you will find this is like the only "official" standard ever created.

I did some digging before you changed and found the GNU clone project that implemented the same standard later on. This is the link to it. http://www.gnu.org/software/swbis/

They go to great lengths to not mention HP-UX or the "SD-UX" name that is the commonly used one. if you check the command names (swinstall, etc), it becomes obvious anyway.

The article also has the name of the POSIX spec for it.

I don't use HP-UX since ages but yet it is somewhere between heavily biased and incorrect as it were.

Hi there, I'm not debating the truthfulness of the material. The reason I reverted your edit was two-folded. First, content on Wikipedia must have a source cited which I did not see on your edit. Secondly, the use of the word "bullshit" wasn't really warranted. If you think the listing of HP-UX as proprietary is incorrect, then just change it! Try to avoid putting commentary into articles, just present the facts. Bped1985 (talk) 16:20, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
