University of Northern Virginia
Hello! You have been engaged in a protracted dispute about how to word the lead sentence at the article University of Northern Virginia. I protected the page for two days, hoping you all would go to the talk page and actually discuss the issue, instead of simply reverting each other. That did not happen. There has been no discussion at the talk page, by anyone. Instead, the edit warring resumed within minutes of the protection expiring. I have now blocked the page for a week. During that time I expect to see some actual discussion at the talk page, with a real attempt to understand each others' position and work out some kind of consensus wording.. I remind you all that Wikipedia works by consensus, and that edit warring is a blockable offense. --MelanieN (talk) 03:19, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
East Ramapo Central School District
Greetings, I have tried balancing the article to get both public school and private school children in the district represented. I apologize for the lengthy edits but one must be completely knowledgeable of the entire history including the long tenuous battle for private school acknowledgment, i.e. the parents struggle to pay for religious education while still paying rising property taxes.

Insisting on writing misleading information on the University of Northern Virginia Page
It was formerly accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) from 2003-2008,(please check source Ref1 Page A30)
Insisting on writing that it was unaccredited is misleading and false statement and contradicts the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia reference source document (Ref 1) Page 30).
Why are you insisting on doing this ? what would you benefit ? We are trying to make this website an accurate tool for presenting internet users with correct and accurate information while maintaining neutrality and good ethics — Preceding unsigned comment added by Honorable gentleman (talk • contribs) 21:45, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
New Page Review needs your help
Hi LionMans Account,
As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).
Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.
Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

BBC 12-hour Editathon - large influx of new pages & drafts expected
AfC Reviewers are asked to be especially on the look out 08:00-20:00 UTC (that's local London time - check your USA and AUS times) on Thursday 8 December for new pages. The BBC together with Wikimedia UK is holding a large 12-hour editathon. Many new articles and drafts are expected. See BBC 100 Women 2016: How to join our edit-a-thon.
