Pratt Institute buildings East Hall[edit]

Per Wikipedia: The plant, located in the basement is available for public viewing from a two-story balcony.

According to my records this is Not the case:

Since the 2106, Every time I've visited the Pratt campus, I've observed The Powerhouse's balcony is closed to the public..

The only written confirmation of this closure are internet blogs and Gothamist..

https://www.reddit.com/r/Brooklyn/comments/5l2xqe/what_is_the_pratt_institute_power_plant_situation/:

The power plant/engine room has been made "off limits" to everyone, including Conrad Milster

Kindly double check the status of the public viewing gallery with Pratt Institute:

Dear 96.242.234.85, thank you for contributing to Wikipedia! I can see that your edits are in good faith. I would encourage you to create an account. Anecdotal evidence and Reddit unfortunately do not comply with reliable sourcing. I could not find any mention of the balcony in the Gotamist article. I removed the balcony information from the Institute's article page until a secondary source can be found as that sentence was unsourced as well. The main reason your edit was reverted is because the link you provided was improperly added as a citation please consider reviewing WP:CS so that future helpful edits aren't at risk of being removed. Best, Classicwiki (talk) If you reply here, please ping me. 22:42, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

A Wise, and Amicable solution!

Thx! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.242.234.85 (talk) 22:45, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

For future references would a letter to the Newspaper's editor qualify as a credible source, please advise, Thx! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.242.234.85 (talk) 22:54, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Dear 96.242.234.85, please consider reviewing Wikipedia's guidelines on identifying reliable sources. It would be difficult to say on this hypothetical, but in general I would not consider them to be credible/reliable.

The Jeffersons edits[edit]

Those scripts I posted showed the tape dates that I got such information from. How is that not a valid source?2600:6C50:7006:400:1541:C156:4D34:A295 (talk) 04:56, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Dear 2600:6C50:7006:400:1541:C156:4D34:A295, consider reading over the links I have provided on your talk page/over WP:RS. How is a reader to identify that the script is authentic? Best, 04:58, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

I would like to know: Under which objective, legal standard is:

A. Paying for a ticket to an event.

B. Attending said event.

C. Sitting quietly during said event

D. Not engaging the performers in said event in any way, shape or form until they engage you

Considered "targeted harassment." There are countless videos on YouTube that show what really happened at VidCon and Wikipedia's continued insistence on denying objective reality in favor of citing sources that read "Drinking male tears" is intellectual treason. I can only imagine that this is being done for ideological reasons and nothing having to do with the reality of the situation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:101:8202:1B80:D07C:AC20:13AA:F30B (talk) 05:00, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

2600:6C50:7006:400:1541:C156:4D34:A295, I don't quite understand the nature of the accusations you are making. Imgur links of photographs of script covers do not constitute a reliable source, nor does anecdotal evidence. Please consider viewing WP:RS. If you feel like you are being unfairly treated, please consider contacting an administrator. If you can find additional secondary sources I can work with you in correcting these dates.

KRISS Vector[edit]

The user that keeps removing information from that article is the same one who kept changing it to this (diff on the left) before. Given the name he kept adding to the page seemed quiet distinctive I checked up on it, it appears this guy is actually not all there in the head and credits himself with inventing other random things including Dragon Ball. Bones Jones (talk) 09:40, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

My name is Kristopher Ryan Sprayberry and yes i keep removing what's been said about how the KRISS in the KRISS Vector comes from.. How dumb do you have to be to really think that an American company that has ties to the US military is gonna use a name from a Indonesian knife(kris)..Not to mention their not even spelled the same.. So here's the deal, back when i was in high school after i to the ASVAB, i was talking to a Marine Recruiter. I drew up a few ideas i had and showed them to the Recruiter. A couple of the things i showed him was a ruff draft blueprint of recoil mitigation technology , the KRISS Vector, and the KAP.40. I never got any of those drawings back, and people went behind my back and got patents on the ideas.I came up with the KRISS by taking the first four letters of my first name, and the first letter of my last name. Now i do have witness's who were there and seen do this..the Marine Recruiter, The Teacher whose class i was in, as well as some of my classmates in that class, a student teacher at the time (i do believe) who was just out of the Navy. Now it doesn't matter if anyone believes what i'm saying.. Doesn't mean i'm not telling the truth.. All one has to do is look in the right places and ask the right Questions. Now seeing how i had just took my ASVAB and was talking to a Marine Recruiter, there should be some record of this.. especially when the Military was trying to Recruit me for the development of experimental and prototype weapons. But for some dumb reason, no one seems to wanna looks into this and think they know what's really going on or the truth.. Now as for the tweets, I know exactly what i said, and yes i know there's gonna be alot of people who think i'm of my rocker, but doesn't mean that is what's going on.. I really love it how people who weren't their for things, didn't witness anything, only know what has been relayed to them, know what the truth is..When all their info is second hand("believe nothing your hear, only half of what you see, and a quarter of what your told and question everything"). But one thing all you ignorant week minded fools need to realize, I have no reason to make this up, I have no reason to create some bullshit story, I have no reason to put myself out there like that when people are gonna call me crazy or what ever, unless there is truth to what i'm saying.. it's just none of you believe it.. And remember, what you believe to be truth has no relevance on what is the truth..
The action was patented by a French firearm designer, Renaud Kerbrat, in 2003, and is derived from a target pistol invented a hundred years ago (even though he denies that). It's odd that he doesn't mention ever speaking to some random USMC recruiter, or for that matter ever working with the US Marine Corps at all. TDI / KRISS USA isn't an "American company," TDI was established as the US arm of Gamma Applied Visions Group which is a Swiss company established by Jan Henrik Jebsen in 2002. Their "connections" started out with Jebsen meeting Timothy C. Lindsay, a retired Army Colonel, who had friends at ARDEC, but he met him in Novemeber 2002 while Kerbrat's patents were filed in June. There is no possible way that what you're saying happened could have happened.
If you have no proof of your claims, they don't belong on the page. We can source people saying it's named after a Javan kris, you on the other hand are spinning out a fantasy minus any particulars (names, dates) which would allow us to check up on it. Also why the hell would TDI steal the idea, still name it after you, but never say it's named after you?
Not to mention the odd timing of you being in high school when you invented something that was patented in 2003, yet you were apparently also around in the 80s to invent Dragon Ball. Are we supposed to believe you were held back for three or four decades?
Also, "the Military was trying to Recruit me for the development of experimental and prototype weapons?" Weapon designers aren't generally recruited into the military, they work for civilian companies like Raytheon or BAE. Your story is utter bunk. Bones Jones (talk) 07:08, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Unnao dead bodies row Cause[edit]

Earlier, on the page Unnao dead bodies row, I changed the cause from "Unknown" to "Unknown, but likely multiple", which you then reverted, as you thought its meaning was unclear.

Just so you know, I had been thinking along the lines of "Even though postmortem was not possible, those people could not have all died from the same cause (e.g. natural causes, homicide) or even means (e.g. sepsis, knife wound), since there were over a hundred of them." Hope that clears it up.

P.S.: By the way, I actually made two changes in that edit: the "Causes" one, and the removal of the page from Category:Unidentified people (since the page already was in Category:Unidentified decedents). So in the future, you might want to try something like this Wiktionary edit revert, in which not only were the edits reverted, but the etymologies were also consolidated, although that consolidation, as shown in this later edit, was also a mistake, albeit a minor one. (Disclaimer: I did not make either of those two anonymous edits.) 128.172.245.75 (talk) 17:30, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

128.172.245.75, thanks for letting me know your reasoning. It is reasonable to suggest that there was possibly more than one cause of death in this scenario. Despite this "likely multiple" feels editorial and slightly confusing. "Unknown" should be sufficient and all encompassing in my opinion because we do not know for sure given the sources provided. Thanks for the tip! Best, Classicwiki (talk) If you reply here, please ping me. 13:41, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

MUSE School page edits[edit]

Hi there,

I received a talk message from you in regards to changing the information on the MUSE School page. I am the Director of Communications & Enrollment at MUSE School, so I am updating all content that is relevant information from our website. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.18.189.83 (talk) 22:37, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello 12.18.189.83, thank you for trying to contribute to Wikipedia and make information more accurate. While I believe you are acting in good faith, I have no way of confirming if you are the director. Additionally, contributing to pages that may or may not be paying you is probably a violation of conflict of interest guidelines on Wikipedia. I have left you a general message on this IP account's talk page about how to manage conflicts of interest. I would encourage you to make an account and be clear about your conflicts of interest in pages that you chose to contribute to. Please also see the guide for reliable sourcing. If you need help navigating these waters feel free to head to Wikipedia's help desk or letting me know (although I may be slow to respond).
