File:WKU Wordmark.jpg[edit]

I've declined your "now Commons" speedy deletion request at File:WKU Wordmark.jpg because the Commons version and the local image are different file types and our speedy deletion criteria does not allow for such deletion. I would recommend taking the image through the WP:FFD process for deletion. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 21:33, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

That's fine. Thanks for letting me know! CorkythehornetfanTalk 21:38, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Question about ESU football?[edit]

As you are probably aware of. I recently added a conference championships table to the ESU football article. I was wondering if you have know where I could find the conference records for the seasons as I can't seem to track it down in ESU's media guide. I know I found the same problem with UCO but I can eventually deduce who was in CSU/UCO's conference at any particular time, I don't have any knowledge of who was in the GP conference? I hope to do the same thing to Pitt State, and what I will create for Washburn and if applicable FHSU.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 02:35, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

@UCO2009bluejay: Let me do some looking around. I thought I found a site that I was looking earlier today, but can't seem to remember what it is called! I thought that site had conference records, but I'm not sure. I don't know anything on the GP conference, either, just that ESU competed in it for four years. When I find a site or another source, I'll let you know. Let me know if you need/want help on starting the Washburn or Fort Hays articles. I'd be glad to help out! Thanks, CorkythehornetfanQuestion? 03:15, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

College sports team names[edit]

Corky, please let me know if any other college sports team requested moves are initiated. I've commented on the four of which I was aware. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:37, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

@Dirtlawyer1: Sounds good! Thanks for commenting on the requests. Like I stated in the requests, I was 50/50 with the whole "____ sports" or "____ athletics" naming. I just didn't think Wikipedians would like that, and I wasn't entirely sure I liked it.  Thanks, CorkythehornetfanQuestion? 03:15, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, the college sports naming convention is one thing we did right the first time, and we don;t need to completely chnage our established naming conventions without very good reasons, and certainly not on a whim because someone thinks he has a better idea. The stability of literally thousands of article titles is involved. That being said, I have no problem with the "Lady _____" construction where it's appropriate. Don't forget to create separate redirects for the men's and women's team names where you change the sports program main article titles to the combined names. Ping me if anything interesting happens. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:22, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I have my opinions about him, but thought I better keep them to myself! :) CorkythehornetfanQuestion? 03:34, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

In response to my talk page MIAA conference records[edit]

I believe a few months ago I found the conference standings dating back to 1989 on either the Missouri Western, or Central Missouri Media guides. Before that (as far as MIAA goes I looked at each schools media guides, the CFB data warehouse, and the conference membership) to determine the conference record of each school. I don't know how to determine much outside of the Lone Star Conference because their conference media guide has a listing of each conference standings. I don't know if the MIAA has such a guide, if it did this would be easy to determine.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 05:52, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

As far as the pre-MIAA conferences that any MIAA team was in if I knew the membership of the leagues this would help but I simply don't know. If there was even a wiki article that was sufficient in each defunct or former conference ESU was in this would help as well. I know Washburn was in the MVC at one time but I haven't checked to see if they won any conference titles in that league.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 05:57, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
We should not use the cfb data warehouse right now, according to the WP:CFB project it apparently has a virus at this time.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 17:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good! Thanks for letting me know! I'm confused right now because I've found a couple of websites (mainly the CFB data warehouse and ESU Media Guides) that said ESU joined the Central Conference in 1927, but now the KCAC History page has ESU withdrawing in 1923. It's going to be awhile before I figure this one out... lots of searching to do! Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 18:10, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Created Missouri Western football[edit]

I have created Missouri Western State Griffons football. I added State for continuity purposes, but I support a move to Missouri Western. I put on the main Missouri Western Griffons talk page that the football article should be moved if the main article is moved. I didn't add all of the information I wanted to and will flesh it out later. I am now going to focus on UNK.UCO2009bluejay (talk) 03:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good! I am currently working on Washburn's in my sandbox and will probably finish it tomorrow. I'll probably start Fort Hays tomorrow and finish it Friday. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 03:17, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
