Re: McCain Edits

I understand that some of your citations are books, and that's completely understandable. But in reference to the NYT citation, that is something that is obviously on the web. The reason I asked you to post a web link (when possible) is it allows verification of your citations, as well as the ability for users to read more about the information provided. I wasn't asking you to provide the link for your books as they are unlikely to have their text on-line. But something that's on the front page of the NYT WILL be on the web, and therefore it's preferable to have the link to the article as opposed to just the page number so people don't have to go and buy back copies of the paper to check the source. Just a helpful tip in general--use web links when possible, off-line citations when not possible.--Jareddr 08:58, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

Hey, I don't know if your edit is a good one or not, but I think that a large edit like that needs some consensus on the talk page first.--DamianJohn 17:33, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Don't delete like that

Don't wipe out some informative work by others, as you just did to the John McCain entry. Godspeed.--Aschlafly 22:36, 7 November 2008 (EST)

John McCain Redux

Encyclopedias don't strive for Readers Digest type content. I am afraid you are allowing your personal ideas to color what is and is not important in an article about an important public figure. In other words you took hedge shears to an article that needed fine trimming. Since you were previously warned/instructed not to do that, I am at a loss to understand your editing approach. Please enlighten me. Thanks. --₮K/Admin/Talk 05:36, 29 March 2009 (EDT)

Please refrain from ping-ponging threads, okay? --₮K/Admin/Talk 12:10, 29 March 2009 (EDT)

General Question

Hey Ed, I'm CTrooper, a fellow editor like yourself. I know Conservapedia well, and I've had my scuffles trying to make information here accurate and encyclopedic. My major concern is verifiability and partisanship. I always get alarmed when someone tries to place well-researched info on an article, and then another person wants that small bit of conservativism so bad they take away from the content.

I'm speaking in more specific terms about the John McCain article. It looks like a platform page with political pros and cons, when in reality, I think it should represent a more thorough look of his life. In comparison to the Wikipedia page, it really lacks sourcing and strong authority as an encyclopedia page. Perhaps you could give me a little feedback when you get chance? --CTrooper 22:23, 28 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Ed should, and I already left you a comment on your talk page, and an even more prominent comment on your edit job. --₮K/Admin/Talk 05:56, 29 March 2009 (EDT)
  • Sourcing would be good. Go for it! --Ed Poor Talk 07:58, 29 March 2009 (EDT)
I think TK is over-reacting here. I left my rationale on the Talk Page, but TK immediately chose to revert everthing that I did. If you have the time, I'd appreciate a more reasoned approach to this dilemma. Thanks!!--CTrooper 10:51, 29 March 2009 (EDT)
  • CT, Ed isn't my boss, he's my colleague. Stop posting everywhere but on your talk page about this. That is an instruction. --₮K/Admin/Talk 12:14, 29 March 2009 (EDT)

Specifics

Your question was phrased in such general terms that all I got out of it was a chatty tone. What are your specific suggestions or plans for the John McCain article? (And might we not better discuss them at talk:John McCain?) --Ed Poor Talk 06:54, 30 March 2009 (EDT)
