Link between original literary society and present fraternity[edit]

The article needs greater authority linking the original literary society and the present fraternity. Ordinarily, a chapter of a national fraternity is not deemed sufficiently notable to warrant a separate article. Racepacket (talk) 03:10, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Move[edit]

This article discusses Cornell's literary societies and their common characteristics, with specific details on a few societies. Each society does not warrant its own article, but rather a section in this article. I will research and expand coverage of the other three literary societies. Accordingly, we have selected an article title more descriptive of its contents. Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 21:46, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

    • The administrator concluding the review moved the page. I will bow out and let you have your literary society page. I am a little surprise by the lack of contact from you. By the way, I grew up in Dean Palm's house. Nice of you to do a bio on him.--Cmagha (talk) 22:22, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Yet more repercussions[edit]

Today's outcome of Sockpuppet investigations/Cmagha makes this an even bigger mess. Of the total seven !votes for "allow recreation" at Deletion review/The Irving Literary Society (Cornell University) (the old title of this article), five of them came from sock/meat puppets, all of which are now indefinitely blocked. The closing admin of the Deletion Review has been contacted by the closing admin of the Sockpuppet Investigation.[1] Let's see what he decides to do. He may put both of this one and the fork The Irving Literary Society up for AfD. In which case, I'd support retention of this one and deletion/redirect of The Irving Literary Society as a POV fork.

Articles still a concern[edit]

This article was created as an alternative way to cover the Cornell literary societies without undue emphasis on any one. Particularly since the Irving material did not have sources to support continuation into the 20th century. It still needs a lot of work. The Irving Literaray Society is still a POV fork with even more problems. Any long term help in developing this content up to Wikipedia standards would be appreciated.
