Need some uninvolved help sorting out a content dispute related to Amateur radio.[edit]

There has been a ridiculous edit war at LX National QSL Bureau, from what I gather, its about who gets to distribute QSL cards. Its clearly outside my area of knowledge, and I think having some neutral voices would help sort out how the issue should be dealt with. Thanks to anyone able to help out.

Grants:IEG/Wikipedia likes Galactic Exploration for Posterity 2015[edit]

Dear Fellow Wikipedians,

I JethroBT (WMF) suggested that I consult with fellow Wikipedians to get feedback and help to improve my idea about "As an unparalleled way to raise awareness of the Wikimedia projects, I propose to create a tremendous media opportunity presented by launching Wikipedia via space travel." I plan to send it on an AARL micro-sat.

Please see the idea at meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Wikipedia_likes_Galactic_Exploration_for_Posterity_2015. Please post your suggestions on the talk page and please feel free to edit the idea and join the project.

Thank you for your time and attention in this matter. I appreciate it.

My best regards, Geraldshields11 (talk) 22:07, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
