Welcome to CP and I appreciate your enthusiasm. However, please cite your sources, and try to keep your edits objective and free from bias. For example, Keynes may or may not have been debunked, that is your opinion (and mine too on some issues). As an encyclopedia we provide facts about relevant and influential theories whether we agree with them or not. Thanks. --Ben Talk 11:45, 22 May 2010 (EDT)

Thanks for the advice, Ben. Just so I'm clear (and I'm really asking, not arguing) isn't the whole idea of CP to provide information from a conservative point of view? I know very few conservatives- probably none- who think Keynesian economics are legitimate. Thanks for the advice WillS 17:53, 22 May 2010 (EDT)
Honestly, I can't give you nearly as clear an answer as I'd like (though I've been an editor here since day 1.) In general, the tenor here is to oppose liberalism and promote conservatism, however I think that the policy of non-bias has also been stated somewhere (go figure.) However, the fact that we are an aspiring encyclopedia necessitates that we do our best to keep the facts we present objective and verifiable. Therefore it is best to qualify anything remotely debatable. However, just because we do our best to make sure the conservative viewpoints are voiced, we are not in the business of intentionally censoring liberal viewpoints if they are relevant. For example, though most of us disagree with most of Keynes' economic theories, we still say what they are because he is such a historically significant figure. Thanks. --Ben Talk 18:40, 22 May 2010 (EDT)
You obviously have a lot more knowledge of how this site works than I do; I guess I'm confused as to why my edits were reverted while things like [[1]] are fine. Again, please know that I am in no way arguing or criticizing; this project (CP) really excites me but I'm concerned I may not understand what precisely is acceptable in terms of conservative 'bias' and what is not. Saying Keynes is wrong isn't ok, but saying the theory of relativity is wrong, or that Obama is a Muslim, or that defining a liberal in the first sentence of the article as "someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons" is fine? I hope I'm not coming across as difficult; I'm sure this is just part of the learning curve. (To clarify, I have no problem with saying liberals are self-centered and illogical- they are- just with why that statement is allowed and my statement that Keynes was wrong is not).WillS 23:53, 22 May 2010 (EDT)
Will, please use the links in the welcome message above to read our Manual of Style and Editors Guide. Both will help answer the questions you have! The statements of opinion are sourced with references, rather than just some editors own words. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 00:05, 23 May 2010 (EDT)
I see you didn't bother to do what I asked, judging from your last contribution to Multiculturalism. You can certainly have it your way, Will, but I doubt if you will be pleased with the results. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 16:48, 23 May 2010 (EDT)
I'm sorry, I did read the guidelines, commandments, and style manual. I'm not trying to "have anything my own way," and if I'm doing things wrong, it's only because I am new to all the coding. I see that the reference was in the wrong place... I thought using the reference button at the top would automatically make it work. I see that you had no problem with the substance of my edits, only where the reference was linked, so I'm sure you understand that it was an honest mistake. Thank you for all your help! WillS 23:16, 23 May 2010 (EDT)

You need to highlight the text you want to include then hit the appropriate button in the edit panel. Then highlight it all again, the link part, to make it a link. Insert a space, one space, and insert your own description before the ending ] bracket. Ask as you go along, someone is always around, most likely. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 01:23, 24 May 2010 (EDT)

Department of Education

You are allowed to freely copy material from government websites, with references to the material. Perhaps some background information, as to supposed purpose for being, etc will be of help to you there. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 21:53, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Great idea, thanks! WillS 21:57, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

Palin/Public School

I agree with you, Palin certainly doesn't belong on a list of under-achievers, but perhaps the addition was mistaken? In any event, thanks for removing her. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 07:15, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Sorry if I overreacted, then; I'm just so sick of Palin being the standard target for every liberal elitist with a keyboard and too much free time on their hands. --WillS 19:29, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Slow down

Please submit a writing plan. You're confusing Iduan and ticking me off. --Ed Poor Talk 00:35, 17 March 2011 (EDT)
