Lenzie Academy wiki page[edit]

Thank you for your opinion this is very helpful. I have no conflict of interest or decalaration to make. I am not paid to contribute to the page nor am I employed by the school or the local authority that governs the school. I am a parent of a pupil and was altered to the bias of the wiki page by other parents - I am just trying to have this excellent school represented in a fair and balanced way. For example with regard to academic achievement Lenzie Academy has been in the top 10% of Scottish schools for many years in terms of the academic attainment achieved by its pupils. In recent years there has been continued success, for example, in 2014 it was ranked 13th according to the Sunday Times Scottish School League Tables (1) (2). This builds upon the 19th position achieved in 2013 (3) (4) and the 16th position achieved in 2012 (5) (6). This demonstrates that the school is continuing to meet the needs of its pupils and indicates that the continued hard work of pupils, parents and staff is paying off. 1 = Sunday Times 23/11/14 2 = Education Scotland “Scottish Schools Online” 3 = Sunday Times 23/11/14 4 = Education Scotland “Scottish Schools Online” 5 = STV.TV/Scotland 6 = Education Scotland “Scottish Schools Online”

I personally do not have the technical skills to effectively edit the page but I know an attempt was made to post this info on the page in 2014 but that it was taken down after just a few days. Any assistance would be gratefully received by parents and the current staff. None of the pupils currently at the school were present during most (if not all) of the controversies that are listed On the page, indeed neither were the staff as most of these issues occurred so long ago. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scott7117 (talkcontribs) 22:24, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

@Scott7117: Thank you for getting back to me, and for clarifying your relationship with the school. Please bear in mind that being a parent could potentially result in a conflict of interest, as would being a pupil or having any other association with the school, though I'm happy to let that matter rest for now.
On the issue of editing the page, while I could make edits for you, I think in the long-term it would be better to have more people feel comfortable editing the contents of the article. I would recommend reviewing Help:Editing, which will give you a crash course on editing articles. Wikipedia:Contributing to Wikipedia gives a wider overview of contributing to the project. I think the best way I can help at the moment is to go through the article from top-to-bottom, then write-up some feedback, which will identify specific issues and potential solutions, and also provide more general guidance on how school articles are best written. I assessed school articles for WikiProject Schools for many years so I have plenty of experience in this area. I shall place my comments on the talk page at Talk:Lenzie Academy, which I think could do with more activity anyway. CT Cooper · talk 18:49, 24 November 2015 (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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:39, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I shall be voting shortly. CT Cooper · talk 21:35, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Rebecca has a new IP[edit]

She's back under a new IP and editing bios and in her usual style of altering dates of birth and not citing them. Plus her way of conduct via edit summaries is a clear quacking that it is her. Wes Mouse  12:37, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know. She also appeared on my watchlist and I agree that it's obviously her. At the same time, she was playing games on her old IP as well. I may disable talk page access on IPs she uses if this continues. She must be using a proxy of some sort as her IPs are all over the place, so the blocks probably won't stop her, but they will slow her down. CT Cooper · talk 18:36, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
