Great idea to take a break ElKevbo. If you return, hope you would have learned not to censure factual information as you did pertaining to Claremont Graduate University and the Teacher Education program. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.25.211.33 (talk) 01:29, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit]

ElKevbo, welcome back! I have a question about a user you recently dealt with... do you know how this user would have discovered me? I'ver never dealt with the user but after he got blocked from promoting Everglades University, I received an email asking what he should do... Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 05:25, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

No, I have no idea. I think the only contact I've ever had was reverting one of his or her edits at that article. No talk page interaction or anything. Sorry! ElKevbo (talk) 17:17, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Hmmmm... no worries! I'm just trying to figure out how out of thousands of users he found me. lol Thanks for the reply! Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 17:21, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Question About Heartland Baptist Bible College Edit Revert[edit]

Hello, there. I appreciate your vigilance to keep Wikipedia a reputable source for information. I read it often, but I'm entirely new to contributing. I want to explain that I was not trying to make a haphazard edit to the Heartland Baptist Bible College page. I honestly was not meaning to be disruptive. I'm new and just trying to clean and help pages in my sphere of knowledge. Here was my reasoning behind the edits...

Because Heartland Baptist Bible College is intended to be a practical, ministry training institution, the repeated reference to "unaccredited" seems purposed by someone who is trying to point out a negative about the school. In fact, I looked at the history and found that the exact wording in the opening paragraph was written by someone who wrote other derogatory things about the school that were removed. For clarity, the college's accreditation status is discussed later in the post. To be clear--I'm not suggesting the college's accreditation status be scrubbed from the page--at all. Even if accreditation status remains in the first paragraph, it seems reasonable to begin with the college's intention of providing practical training for ministers. This is not an effort to hide accreditation status--simply to be fair to the type of college discussed. The college is not trying to "act" accredited. The later post already says the institution is not seeking accreditation. Maybe the opening paragraph could be revised to explain what the institution's purpose is--rather than repeating what it cannot do. That just seems like "good faith" description of the institution.

Student Financial Aid in the United States[edit]

The information was somewhat poorly sourced and cited and was removed in favor of linking to much more encyclopedic wikipedia entries on each subtopic, with a brief summary for each. Just trying to improve the entry.WonLove (talk) 17:41, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

I agree that it's poorly sourced and in desperate need of further editing but I glanced at some of the other articles that were linked to and they didn't seem to have the intended or necessary information. It seems like keeping what is there is the lesser of two evils.
The whole article needs a ton of work from some folks who really know the topic. It'd be great if we could get some financial aid experts (NASFAA folks, maybe?) to contribute. ElKevbo (talk) 18:19, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
