AfD nomination of Everest Catholic High School[edit]

I have nominated Everest Catholic High School, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Everest Catholic High School. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Damiens.rf 17:17, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

I've just had to take a meat-ax to this because the "article" was mostly promotional language apparently taken from the school's website or other promotional material, and massively violative of WP:NPOV, WP:RS and WP:V. There seems to have been some serious COI involvement. Could you help to rebuild it again? The article title, incidentally, is now Everest Academy and High School. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:42, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

develops the whole child[edit]

Hi, EagleFan. I hope you understand that Reuters article is not a source for the claim that "Girls and Boys learn different", and that believing that some school "develops the whole child" is a strong point point of view. And also, the Archdiocese's website should be considered a primary source on this case.

Regardless of the result of the afd, that article would benefit from sources for the claims that they WILL use a gender specific approach (this should be easy) and that their WILL use this or that educational method.

But we can't simply pretend the school already exists and is already working.

I hope you understand. --Damiens.rf 17:54, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Spam in St. Mary's High School (Stockton, California)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on St. Mary's High School (Stockton, California), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because St. Mary's High School (Stockton, California) is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting St. Mary's High School (Stockton, California), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

An invitation to join WikiProject Ohio[edit]

Ohio High School Athletic Association[edit]

Hi EagleFan — I just wanted to let you know that I added an infobox to the OHSAA, but that I took out all of the past state champions of each sport. The reason I did this is because the OHSAA article was 90 kilobytes, i.e. way too large for a single article on Wikipedia, and I thought you might be interested in making a new page titled something like "List of all-time OHSAA state champions" or something like that. If you make all of the results into its own article, it will be smaller and more suitable for WP. Plus, it's an easy remedy: all it would take is a "Main article: ..." tag on the current OHSAA page and people will get to where they need to go (if they're looking for past results). Anyway have a good day and think about breaking it up into its own page. -Jrcla2 (talk)(contribs) 03:52, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Further information: Ohio High School Athletic Association[edit]

I am scratching my head about these additions you are making. Some of them seem ok, I guess, but on other pages, for example Reynoldsburg_High_School_(Ohio), I mean there is nothing there except one state championship and above that (should be below, no), taking up more text is "Further information: Ohio High School Athletic Association" Lucas20 (talk) 23:57, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

No doubt that article needs to be filled out. Must not be many wikipedians from Reynoldsburg interested in editing...EagleFan (talk) 23:58, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
It's almost like you're hijacking the article, though, I mean if its not notable enough to write about the school generally, who cares about the random state championship that they won some time ago Lucas20 (talk) 00:01, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
It is notable to write about, just a lack of editors to do so. Also, I don't see a championship as random regardless if 1 or 20 years ago.EagleFan (talk) 00:03, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
But you created that entry! Lucas20 (talk) 00:06, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
Ha ha. I did not know that! Very disappointed it did nto develop over the last 2.5 years. I'll have to add that to my list to work on myself. How about I get rid of the Section so it does not dominate the page so much?EagleFan (talk) 00:09, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure that's necessary, but it think it fits better into some of these HS articles if it is less obtrusive, that's all. I understand that when you're in the middle of a project, you don't want to leave any out for comprehensiveness purposes (how would you ever remember it when that did become a viable article.

Holy Name of Jesus School[edit]

Why did you erase the names of prior principals? This list is given for all place and school articles (mayors for places).Student7 (talk) 03:01, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I find information like past principals, current faculty, or class offerings are not encyclopedic and I sometimes delete that when I see them (especially when I'm in a grumpy mood ;) ). Did not mean to step on your toes, you do a lot of great work on the Catholic schools and Diocese. EagleFan (talk) 13:16, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I didn't automatically revert them because I knew you had a good reason. I confess they do not look that great but seem to be used universally in place articles. I am not adverse to discussing this though it does involve a lot more that just us two. If you would like to find a forum for a discussion, I would like to participate. In the meantime, I will replace the principals since you seem to concur, however reluctantly. Regards. Student7 (talk) 03:36, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
I still don't see how they are encyclopedic and I do not see the information on other school pages. I do not equate Mayor to Principal anyway. Mayors are elected positions, Principal is a hired position. EagleFan (talk) 17:57, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

re: Carmel High School (Mundelein, IL)[edit]

Hiya EagleFan,

I just noticed some changes you made to the infobox at this article. I am curious to know if you have checked out the infobox post-edit. I am not sure that this is the way the infobox should look (that is I suspect that there is a formatting error in the box). Any thoughts? LonelyBeacon (talk) 22:37, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

It looks OK to me. If it is the way I used it, let me know or fix it. If the problem is the actual design of "InfoBox School", this is the Talk page to discuss the InfoBox: Template talk:Infobox School Thanks. EagleFan (talk) 13:30, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Frankly, I'm not sure. I'm not going to run over and make changes. Looking at the infobox now the address line looks cluttered. The format of this infobox formats the school address into the lines near the top. When flags and counties are added, the lines start to look cluttered (IMO). Even adding the county name seems to clutter the address line (I'm sure in some countries, it is used as part of the address, but not in the US). That is an issue with the box formatting. Personally, I don't have a problem with it. Normally, I like adding the mini flags, but I'm not sure if this is the case.  ??????????
Heya Eagle!
I opened a request for comment over at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Schools#recent infobox updates. I hope you will read it because I want to be clear that this was a case of having an opinion and trying to see which way the consensus of the community is on your recent editing.
One of the points brought up is that according to WP:MOSFLAG, the use of the state flag icons is not something that should be used, and it is likely that the American flags don't belong either. The discussion on the county info seems to be more in favor of saving it.
I wanted to let you know about this for a number of reasons:
1. I wanted you to be able to get involved in this discussion, if you choose.
2. I wanted you to know about this, should you choose to alter your future editing.
3. I wanted to volunteer to go back and take out the flags myself. I know you have done a great deal of work. Rather than going back, you may wish to continue forward with your editing. I would be happy to go back and revise. I am not going to touch anything for at least a day or two .... and give you a chance to respond.
Best of luck in future editing. LonelyBeacon (talk) 22:01, 15 May 2009 (UTC)


Hello again EF!

I see you are back hard at work on infoboxes again ... I'm not sure if you noticed it, but one of the points brought up in the RFC that I started was that the use of flags (even the American flag) seems to be in violation of the Manual of Style on using flag icons. I thought that the U.S. flag might still be doable, but after reading more into it, the flag symbol may be over-representing the school's nationality (especially given that schools in America are not under the jurisdiction of the federal government), which is otherwise already given as a part of the address. While the Manual of style is not a hardcore policy, it is a generally accepted practice in the encyclopedia. I would strongly urge you to read that guideline as you are editing. Very good luck on your future edits. LonelyBeacon (talk) 22:44, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

My interpretation is that country flags in InfoBoxes are OK. EagleFan (talk) 00:08, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
For me, these flags do not follow the spirit for the Manual of Style. -- ForgottenManC (talk) 00:33, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

re: Providence Catholic High School et al[edit]

Good morning EF!

I just came across you recent edits to the infobox in this article, and noted that you were adding some unreferenced information (ACT score, number of pupils per year, etc). Where are you getting this inforamtion? I have been seeking reliable, third party sources for prvate school ACT scores for a long time, and if you have such a source, I would like to be able to access it. LonelyBeacon (talk) 15:02, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I have been looking for that too. Even the State DOE's do not seem to have it. My source is the school's website, but it would be nice if that could be compiled somewhere neutrally. My guess is schools sometime fudge the numbers, or sometimes they give the top 50% of students average without a disclosure. I guess the ACT organization does not want to provide that information publicly for a variety of reasons (e.g. they do not want to "rank" the schools. EagleFan (talk) 15:12, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmmmm.... I agree with you .... we all have to be cautious about that ... I was also reminded that I did this at the article on Breese Mater Dei ... the school's website can be a reliable source for some information, but I'm not sure ACT scores are necessarily the best (unless it is something like a school report card or other such document which itself comes from an outside source).

regarding importance ratings[edit]

Eagle,

I very politely ask you, as you are going through and rating all of these articles as "low" importance, are you checking to see if they should be rated as "low"? I have caught a few articles that are clearly not low rated articles (Loyola Academy, Mt. Carmel High School (Chicago, Illinois), Gonzaga College High School. These schools have incredibly long lists of notable alumni, that should at the least merit a "Mid". Gonzaga may even rate a "high" ranking given its long history. Am I missing something in your decisions to rate these articles? I could be wrong, but given my past experiences with the project, I think I am making some safe predictions here. LonelyBeacon (talk) 23:11, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

I judge them to be Low even with those alumni. Any editor is welcome to bump it up a notch if they feel strongly about it. I've put in some mids, but generally use that for colleges and such.EagleFan (talk) 23:14, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Just so you know, this edit broke the references in the first two lines you changed... – Kacie Jane (talk) 20:36, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Macedonia links[edit]

Hi, thanks for your efforts to clean up all those Macedonia links. Just one thing: please don't change redirect links away from the dab page, as you did (twice) [1]. That redirect is actually supposed to point to the dab page Macedonia, and the way you changed it, you created a double redirect, which is a technical error. (I notice some people have also reverted a couple of your changes from Macedonia to Macedonia (disambiguation) in disambiguating hat notes, but I see you have the guideline on your side about those.) Fut.Perf. 16:06, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Hat links[edit]

Hat links such as {{other uses}} are not needed if the title is qualified. For example, if somebody has arrived at the page Macedonia, Illinois, then (s)he is already at the desired page. Hat notes are only needed in cases where the title leads to a dominant page, and there is a disambiguation page with a qualified title. Fore example Banitsa leads to the food, and there is a hat note that leads to Banitsa (disambiguation). In the case of Macedonia, the disambiguation has the unqualified title per decision after an AfD. See Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Macedonia). Hatlinks are also needed if a page with the main title is a redirect to a page to a different title, in this case, the hat link is {{redirect}}. I have reverted some of your edits, but now I realized that the hat links had to be actually removed instead of edited. Regards,  Andreas  (T) 18:07, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

"Cleaning-up" dab pages[edit]

Please do not just remove links indicrimiately, as you have done with several attributes in what are clearly artistic contexts. You should have either done nothing, as the reader can easily work out which of the disam links applies, or set up Attribute (art) as a redirect to emblem, pending an individual article, and converted the links to that. "Attribute" in art is a very specific term, with which many readers will not be familiar, and a link here is very useful, even if it goes through a disam page. I have reverted several of your edits using rollback for convenience, though I appreciate the edits were well-intentioned. Johnbod (talk) 15:44, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

I have marked you as a reviewer[edit]

I have added the "reviewers" property to your user account. This property is related to the Pending changes system that is currently being tried. This system loosens page protection by allowing anonymous users to make "pending" changes which don't become "live" until they're "reviewed". However, logged-in users always see the very latest version of each page with no delay. A good explanation of the system is given in this image. The system is only being used for pages that would otherwise be protected from editing.

If there are "pending" (unreviewed) edits for a page, they will be apparent in a page's history screen; you do not have to go looking for them. There is, however, a list of all articles with changes awaiting review at Special:OldReviewedPages. Because there are so few pages in the trial so far, the latter list is almost always empty. The list of all pages in the pending review system is at Special:StablePages.

To use the system, you can simply edit the page as you normally would, but you should also mark the latest revision as "reviewed" if you have looked at it to ensure it isn't problematic. Edits should generally be accepted if you wouldn't undo them in normal editing: they don't have obvious vandalism, personal attacks, etc. If an edit is problematic, you can fix it by editing or undoing it, just like normal. You are permitted to mark your own changes as reviewed.

The "reviewers" property does not obligate you to do any additional work, and if you like you can simply ignore it. The expectation is that many users will have this property, so that they can review pending revisions in the course of normal editing. However, if you explicitly want to decline the "reviewer" property, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. — Carl (CBM · talk) 12:33, 18 June 2010 (UTC) — Carl (CBM · talk) 13:27, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Not sure which you are referring to, but I thought the categories in redirects seemed unnecessary (not sure policy there). Also, the more appropriate catgegory may have been "Defunct Roman Catholic Schools in...", I'd guess, since those schools were closed and merged. The "Roman Catholic schools..."catgories should be for active schools only Either way, provide me the pages I'll give it some thought based on policies. I'm certainly flexible.

Speedy deletion nomination of Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hi, I have reverted content removed without an explanatory edit summary. If you consider that the titles should not be in the article please raise the matter at the talk page. TerriersFan (talk) 17:50, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Just consistent with most every article. At the high school level, team titles are notable, individual titles are not.EagleFan (talk) 18:17, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Youngstown Christian School[edit]

Hello, and thanks for creating this article. It's been tagged for notability. high schools are nearly always found to be notable but only if they have reliable sources. Could you please look it over and see if you can add sources? Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 08:48, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:47, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

I hate to add WP:PROD to the page where there is potential of adding more content. Maybe this page has, what you have to do is, you have to add at least one WP:RS on that page, because it is a BLP article. In my opinion, whether dead or alive, all articles must have 1 reliable source. Once you add a source, you can ping me. Remember, external links cannot be counted as 'reference'.

May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to 1938 Gettysburg reunion may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 18:27, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
