Union County Magnet High School


For what it's worth, the article looks good to me. I don't see any particular problems with balance or neutrality. I'm not completely sure what's going on but it wouldn't surprise me if there are fellow-students that want to push the point of view that the school is perfect and that nothing critical about it should appear in the article.

As for the writing, I was either going to say something about run-on paragraphs or hop in myself and fix them—preferably the latter— but I see that you've made a bunch of edits lately and that problem seems to be fixed.

Good stuff. Welcome to Wikipedia! [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 13:39, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Re: Vandalism by User:


Oh, you're more than welcome; I'm just doing my job, as it were. :) The IP in question ( resolves to firewall.union.k12.nj.us, which would indicate that whomever it is does have some connection to the school (if not the county only), and that there's probably more than one person involved (as it's a shared line). This would also explain why there are some constructive edits mixed in with the vandalism.

As for a place to report IPs with a recurrent history of vandalism, we do indeed have such a system: Wikipedia:Vandalism in progress. It's a rather large and unwieldy page, but it's the best way to bring the community's attention to a problem user. If you notice edits that aren't clearly vandalism but which you suspect might need peer review or fact checking, there's also Wikipedia:RC patrol (RC meaning Recent Changes). Of course, now that you've brought the IP to my attention, I'll try to remember to check its contributions every now and then.

Thanks for doing your part in keeping our articles clean. Happy editing, -- Hadal 19:36, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Just to let you know, in this edit the anon claims to be from Edison Middle School (I believe it is now called Edison Intermediate School). That doesn't mean that IP is actually used there, but it makes sense considering the URL. SWAdair | Talk 07:09, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)

  • I think that several schools in the area share the IP address. I know that our EBSCO connection comes from Westfield HS. It would make sense that it'd be shared, though, because it has to cost an exceptional amount. I've been told that it's equivalent to several T1 connections, but I have no way of checking.
