I just wanted to take a moment to remember our good friend and a driving force behind this project, and others, Dravecky. We lost him 4 years ago today, April 23.
An admin, he was honored with 3 good articles and 145 DYKs, plus he had 104,715 edits to his name, including one (his last) the morning he passed. Dravecky was a friend to all, on and off Wikipedia. A SciFi fan above all else. He helped do the behind the scenes stuff (along with his longtime girlfriend Robyn) for FenCon, WhoFest, among many others and met many of his favorite actors and actresses. He loved his University of Alabama Crimson Tide football.

Discussion at Draft talk:WRBD
Currently before us is an AfD, but it's not your usual AfD. There are a SLEW of hoax edits and it's made it very hard to figure out what end is up in this one. So, please read through it all, consider all the sides and facts, and go from there. It has been relisted (as of today), so we have plenty of time to put our opinions/!votes out on this one. - Neutralhomer • Talk • 02:22 on February 28, 2021 (UTC)
During November 2020 and March 2021, I added a huge amount of new material with reliable sources to the entry for WLAD. For the WikiProject Radio Stations, WLAD's talk page still says "This article has been rated as Stub-Class on the project's quality scale." As an independent reader, please re-rate the page so it's no longer rated as "Stub-Class". Also feel free to assign an importance scale rating.22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:56, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
- You're on a roll...I'd say you're C-Class. I'd like to see a citation for most facts and maybe group some of the shorter paragraphs together to form longer ones. I have Hartford Courant access—perhaps I can add more information on the station, though I do not have a Danbury paper. Sammi Brie (she/her • t • c) 23:51, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
- Thank you and we can continue to improve the narrative over time. The News-Times would have a bunch more relevant articles in their earlier archives from before the 1990s but they aren't online, probably only on some old microfilms in the public library. I did find a bunch of relevant articles in citable newspapers like The News-Times, The New York Times, and The Hartford Courant and magazines like Billboard Music Week and Broadcasting, Telecasting but I was limited by what I could find in free search engines and free databases and what I knew from listening to the station. Most of the facts I added are found in those articles but for a couple of exceptions. Some of the WLAD people mentioned in these articles were well-known in our community and won awards.126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:07, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
- I didn't yet add anything about the awards the station and its personnel received from the Connecticut Associated Press Broadcasters Association and from the Danbury Old Timers. Maybe that would be excessive? Also didn't yet mention that they broadcast University of Connecticut basketball games.188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:15, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
