• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

This is a user maintained area - feel free to edit the page and drop the bad links. Most of the wiki pages are editable by the members and this is one of them. And thanks in advance for cleaning it up

Remember we have over 6000 pages in the wiki - there is a high likelihood that there are dead links on at least some of them. If you notice something is amiss, go ahead and fix it - you don't need to tell anyone nor get permission to do so, as long as it's not one of the very small percentage of pages that are locked.

And your point Is?
Well I guess my point was to let it known that the links i listed are dead or not working.
But i guess I wasted my time reviewing all the links and typing all the information.

Well maybe it will be helpful to others, then again maybe not.

If they were my wiki links, I would take care of them, but they are not.

I thought maybe a wiki admin or mod would be happy to know about these Non-Working links.

Sorry.

My point - you can do this yourself. There is NO ONE here who 'owns' anything in the wiki. It's a community effort, and any member can edit almost any of the pages. The community owns the data, and maintains it. It's a common misconception that the admins, or the original authors, own anything on the wiki and they're the only ones to be able to change it.

Don't worry if you mess something up - we've all done it. A page can be reverted back to its original form pretty simply

11 1/2 hours on the road can make anyone a bit testy, so I apologize if it came off wrong.
