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 As of August 21, 2014 channels 413 and 1413 are no longer active and have not been reassigned.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, 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 (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 (talk) 04:03, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

package managers page edit[edit]


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.

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. (talk) 14:58, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

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)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Thanks for your help with California Valley Miwok Tribe[edit]

Your note at User talk:2600:1010:B11F:95C7:E9C4:71FB:C374:5382 about the changes to California Valley Miwok Tribe certainly assumed good faith by that IP editor! Unfortunately, IP addresses from this Verizon range keep adding material supporting one of the parties in the tribe's leadership dispute. I've been trying to engage with this IP editor on the article's talk page for a while with no success. Because the same IP also deleted the existing sourced summary of the dispute, I felt the ony option was to revert all the changes the IP editor made. I've also asked for the page to be semi-protected. I'm not aiming to discourage improvements, but right now there's no real way to engage in a discussion and the repeated reverts are a needless waste of other editors' time. Rupert Clayton (talk) 02:54, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Heh, I pretty much knew it had to be a not good faith edit, but for those obvious troll edits, I usually go the route of "well, it isn't sourced, so it can't be on Wikipedia." The edit came across the WP:RCP feed, which is how I caught it. Good move on asking for semi-protection on the page, and reverting the bad edits. I'm not an admin, but I have a descent amount of experience fighting vandals (like this) so if there's anything I can do to help, give me a shout! Bped1985 (talk) 14:40, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
