The Signpost
15 October 2014

I graduated from Rice University (Wiess College) in Houston, Texas in the class of 2006. I dual-majored in Math and Computer Science. My contributions are mainly in Mathematics, Science, History, and Sports (contributions).

I started reading Wikipedia in spring 2005, and began contributing in summer 2005.

See my perl script to separate red/blue links in a list.

See my charts of Wikipedia's growth, including stub stats. These were mentioned in the Wikipedia Signpost, in the March 6, 2006 issue.

For your work in creating articles for every NCAA Division I basketball tournament, you deserve this! — Dale Arnett 15:34, 27 March 2006 (UTC)


Tennis Wikiproject[edit]

I'm interested in creating a Tennis Wikiproject. Goals would be redesigning/maintaining the Grand Slam tournament pages, (e.g. 2006 U.S. Open) maintaining the various bracket templates currently in use (e.g. Template:16TeamBracket-Compact-Tennis5) and creating pages for historical Slams, in both the Open Era and earlier. Anyone interested should sign up at Wikipedia:WikiProject/List_of_proposed_projects#Tennis. --Dantheox 02:36, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

NCAA Tourneys[edit]

Immediately before the start of the 2006 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, I created some scripts to automatically pull data from various sources (cited in the external links of each page) and generate historical NCAA tournament pages. I've subsequently generated pages for every tournament from 1939-2004. User:Dale Arnett provided indispensible help correcting school links, and User:Zzyzx11 provided the wonderful templates for 2-, 3- and 4-round brackets. Template:4RoundBracket-Byes is particularly amazing.

Possible future plans for the historical NCAA coverage:

  • The "*" indicating an overtime game goes next to the loser's score, whereas most people put it by the winner's score.
  • The winning team's score in the bracket should also be bolded, ala the 2006 bracket.
  • Information about conferences and berth-types would be appropriate in the "Teams" section.
  • Third-place games should appear in the brackets. User:Zzyzx11 and I have discussed this.
  • A page listing tournament performance by team (e.g. "best finish: Final Four in 1957")

Other than that, the pages mostly need people to come through and add individualized content to each tourney page!

Red and blue tennis players[edit]

That's an impressive list! But you have Pilic and Gonzales on the Red list instead of the Blue.... Hayford Peirce 01:42, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Hey there! No, unfortunately, I do not know any of the contributors on that board personally. Best wishes. Tennis expert 22:56, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
