Promoting the accuracy of Wikipedia[edit]

As a student, I have been told by many teachers not to use Wikipedia and as stupid as it sounds, I have been harassed for doing personal research on Wikipedia. We should be discussing ways to promote the accuracy and legitimacy of Wikipedia and related projects. Gdog1102 (talk)

@Gdog1102: Wikipedia needs to cite sources. You should refer to those when you are doing research. —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:33, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Account deletion[edit]

I want to delete my account, it's possible, thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Evangelicos Castilla (talk)

No, it's not possible to delete accounts. You can just stop using it or rename it to another name. --Stryn (talk) 18:18, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Cookie blocks[edit]

To prevent innocent users from being blocked, the first resort for those sysops should be to cookie blocks. 95.49.114.22 21:34, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

@95.49.114.22: Please explain what problem this solution is to solve. —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:48, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

revoking read permission when violation Terms of Use[edit]

when somebody violates project's or meta's policies, they get tecnically blocked (canot edit). my proposal is to add tecnical bans, witch under violation Terms of Use revoke users' read privileges. 95.49.33.87 19:53, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @95.49.33.87: Why? I don't want everyone vandalizing our projects but I do want everyone to be able to read them. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:44, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
