Useful links


Hello, MattF, and welcome to Conservapedia!

We're glad you are here to edit. We ask that you read our Editor's Guide before you edit.

At the right are some useful links for you. You can include these links on your user page by putting "{{Useful links}}" on the page. Any questions--ask!

Thanks for reading, MattF!

I see that you are making many edits. When making edits, please use more encyclopedic language. It is better that we let readers find out how destructive left-wing ideology is rather than us shouting it in their faces. I changed some of your edits to make the language more encyclopedic and appropriate.
Also, please add more sources when making edits. This is Commandment #2 of the Conservapedia:Commandments. I see that these major edits of your either cite no sources or very few sources: [1][2][3][4][5][6]
I also noticed that some of the edits above did not have the best language in terms of being encyclopedic. I ask you to add sources to those edits. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me! --1990'sguy (talk) 11:50, 22 May 2017 (EDT)
Welcome! If you need anything, let me know!
You've been adding some great information--thanks! However, as 1990'sguy mentioned, you don't seem to be using citations. If your information or thought process came from any particular source, please cite it using <ref>Reference text here</ref>. If it came from a website, you can just put the link there. If it came from a print source, then please at lease include the book title, author, edition number or year, and page number. Using MLA or APA might be the best way to provide this information. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions! --David B (TALK) 12:55, 22 May 2017 (EDT)

Unexplained edits removing sourced info

Please stop removing well-sourced info and replacing it with unsourced info, and stop using either no edit summary or a very misleading one. (examples: [7][8]) CP will not tolerate that behavior. Several of your other edits are very good (examples:[9][10][11]), but these are not. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:08, 25 August 2017 (EDT)

Also, please read your sources before using them. Your edit to Harry Truman included a statement saying one thing, and a reference stating in the first paragraph that the claim you made was wrong, then went on to explain why. References should not be done sloppily just because the key words are in there, nor should they be an afterthought. Please actually read the sources and use their information. Thanks! --David B (TALK) 10:37, 7 September 2017 (EDT)
