Red River Shootout[edit]

I revereted your change to Red River Shootout because "The" is not part of the name of the University of Oklahoma. Therefore, it is not capitalized. Johntex\talk 17:07, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

I also reverted your changing "Texas-OU" to "OU-Texas". If you look at the source cited, which is the Dallas Morning News, you will see that they list Texas first. Partisan swapping of the name order will get us no where. This not a fan site where we bicker over what team is best or what name is best. We go with what the source says and we work together to improve the articles. I look forward to your future contributions. Best, Johntex\talk 17:12, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
No, the fact that the game goes by other names is already explained in the article. If you want to find something useful from an Oklahoma paper where they call the game OU-Texas, you are free to add to the article. However, you should not delete existing material without reaching consensus on the talk page. And we never change things that are directly supported by a source. Doing that makes the source worthless at confirming what we put in the article. It is not up to us to change what the source siad. Johntex\talk 18:00, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
First of all, please WP:Sign your posts on talk pages, it makes it a lot easier to reply to you.
Secondly, there is no reason to add an exclamation point to your reply.
Thirdly, your reply proves the point. The article is titled Red River Shootout yet also uses other terms in the article, such as "Red River Rivalry", "Texas-OU", "OU-Texas".
Most importantly, when citing a source, we go with what that source says. Why don't you try to find something new and important to add to the article instead of trying to promote OU by (a) captitalizing "The" in front of University of Oklahoma and (b) changing wording to a form that is not supported by the source?

Revision of Chris Lauzen Page[edit]

I am reverting your "changes" to Senator Lauzen's page. Your comments about having the site be neutral are well-taken. However, you deleted sourced, accurate material from news publications. I am not aware of any rule prohibiting sourced material that is indisputably accurate whether it is from Lauzen's official websites or not. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kvanko (talkcontribs) 04:13, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

RE: AIV[edit]

Hi! I removed your report to AIV because the issue here is a edit war over disputed content; AIV is more for plain, pure vandalism. I've talked to the user in question, but if it continues feel free to take the matter to the three-revert rule noticeboard, which deals specifically in content disputes. Cheers, Master of Puppets Call me MoP! 04:49, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

No problem, keep up the good work! Master of Puppets Call me MoP! 04:51, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

User:Kvanko and Chris Lauzen[edit]

I've filed a 3RR report here. I figured I should tell you as you're an involved party. Cheers, Master of Puppets Call me MoP! 05:24, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
