High schools in Texas[edit]

Hi! There's no need to add "High schools in Texas" to cats that have "High schools in Fort Bend County, Texas" etc. as they are subdivisions of "High schools in Texas" - adding HS in Texas to those articles would be redundant. Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 21:41, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Regarding the CFISD wikitable, I removed mascot and colors as they are not that important to a school. Also I corrected locations as all but Jersey Village are in unincorporated areas (none of the CFISD high schools are in the city limits of Katy and Houston, and Cypress is not an incorporated area) - And the school population figures date too quickly.

Page titles[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Randall High School a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Randall High School (Amarillo, Texas). This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. R'n'B (call me Russ) 16:21, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Incidentally, according to our article title guidelines, it usually isn't desirable to include a qualifier in parentheses like "(Amarillo, Texas)" unless this is needed to distinguish the article from articles about other schools with the same name. I don't see any other "Randall High School" articles on Wikipedia. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 16:23, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

The reason I included (Amarillo, Texas) in the title is because the school is actually in the city limits of Amarillo even though it is Canyon ISD school. Thanks for the heads up on how to retitle an article. Indyjrg1762 (talk) 23:40, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited East Central Independent School District, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page East Central High School (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Texas schools[edit]

Hi. Thanks for the Mason High School add. Depending on what you're working on, Category:Education in Texas by county might contain some relevant subcategories for you. Having said that, I just looked at your User page. You've done good!

And a piece of advice about the assessments on the Talk Page of any article. If you consider yourself part of WikiProject Texas, then just put your own assignment on there. There's not a lot of user activity in this project right now, and as you can see by looking at the project's main page, there are already over 2,000 unassessed articles under the project. If you want an assessment on your page, put it on yourself. The Texas project will never catch up with the backlog. Maile66 (talk) 15:08, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

WikiProject Texas[edit]

I would appreciate it if you would have a look at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Texas, specifically about the Redesign of the project's main page, and about it joining WikiProject United States. For all intents and purposes, this project has reached a comatose state of involvement. Editors are creating and contributing to Texas articles. But the project site itself has been pretty dead for a long time. Anything you can add to the current discussions on that page would be appreciated. Maile66 (talk) 21:09, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Texline High School[edit]

Hi! I notice you started Texline High School The thing is, while urban school districts can have articles on distinct schools, Texline ISD only has one school, and it might be best to have everything in one article WhisperToMe (talk) 12:09, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Texline[edit]

Hi! I don't think much information was lost at all. Let's review the changes.

If you compare the articles carefully, there was little unique info in the "Texline HS" article. The unique part, the history, was consolidated easily. Other stuff, such as athletic mascots, enrollment, etc. can easily be posted at the district article. WhisperToMe (talk) 00:17, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Now, you ask "I need to know what I can do to prevent this with the other articles I have created" - Well, you'll have to find enough unique information about a subject through reliable secondary sources. Using Google News and Google Books to find information can help easily.

Now, which article consolidations did you find to be problematic? I can take a look at them and check what could be done about them WhisperToMe (talk) 00:19, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
