Yale Forestry School article[edit]

Nickknack00, hello. I follow the Yale Forestry School article and noticed your recent edits, which I appreciate. However, I had a question about your insertion about Grey Towers. The article already mentioned summer studies at Grey Towers. That mention included a reference, and the mention has a different set of years than your insert does. So, at the moment, the article has two inconsistent mentions of years of study at Grey Towers. Do you have a reference for your year range? Could you add it and correct the other one if necessary? Alternatively, you might pick one of the mentions of summer work at Grey Towers and remove the other, unless you think it is important to mention Grey Towers at both places.

Hi Goldfish-silverfish, Thanks for your diplomatic inquiry. It was a hasty edit: I cut/pasted text from the "School buildings" section about Grey Towers into the History section. I didn't think it was well-placed as an aside in the "School buildings" section, but hadn't noticed that information was already contained and already sourced in the History section. Since this is the case, I propose the text in question be stricken from the article entirely. I'd invite you to do this if you agree!
Hoping this means there's another Forestry affiliate on Wikipedia...Nickknack00 (talk) 02:11, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Nickknack00. I will go ahead and make the edit to the Forestry School page. Thanks for helping to clean up the DM Smith page. I started it, so I guess I must be a Yale Forestry fan. I'm not a very active editor, though. Someday, if I get around to it, I'll create another page for a noteworthy but under-appreciated alum, such as one of the Forest Service chiefs. Goldfish-silverfish (talk) 17:38, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Science Hill (Yale University)[edit]

Nickknack00, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but your nomination for DYK came in far too late to qualify. You need to nominate new articles within five days of their creation, and this was almost a month after creation. I hope you'll try again in the future: please be sure to remember that you have five days from the time it's moved from Articles for Creation to where regular articles live to submit DYK nomination. Thanks for your submission. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:24, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, BlueMoonset. I was working on adding photos to the article and had wanted to offer something a little more polished. I'll be quicker on the draw next time. Nickknack00 (talk) 15:11, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Despite thanking you earlier,[edit]

I just moved Rene Paul Chambellan back to where he was because that is how he spelled his name. To be sure I checked with his grandson who confirmed i. but the "thanks" still stands, it was just slightly misapplied. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 18:26, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, Carptrash. Happy to leave it as it is. I made the move because it seemed like a majority of scholarly materials and biographic/encyclopedic records preferred the diacritic (see this in particular), although the Library of Congress authorities do also omit it. Any chance you have a written source that can confirm Chambellan's preference? Nickknack00 (talk) 19:02, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Here is a note from his grandson. if you really need a resource, I can get you to where we discussed it on Facebook.
"He never used the accent on his first name. Look at all his signatures and it isn't there. In our family, both he and his namesake, many times would be pronounced "renie" instead of the proper Rene. It's not the end of the world. I'll take a look at the page when I get home from work and make the change unless you have a minute or tow to do it. Up to you my friend and thank you very much for the heads up!"
Good enough? Carptrash (talk) 07:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Definitely! I'll post to the talk page in case it comes up again. Nickknack00 (talk) 15:16, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Yale history[edit]

Is there anything on the history of town and gown relationships anywhere? The Yale University article says nothing, which I found a bit surprising. Dougweller (talk) 18:06, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

I haven't seen anything on Wikipedia so far. Unions, tax payments, and campus expansion are probably worth a mention. If you're looking for some places to begin, I think the best thing is Doug Rae's City: Urbanism and Its End. I would also try Peter Dobkin Hall's piece here, Vincent Scully's Yale in New Haven: Architecture and Urbanism, maybe Dahl's Who Governs?. On unions, there's this .
I've got enough on my plate. I read the pdf, interesting, but I was thinking more of the relationship between Yalies and townies which was pretty fraught at times. Loads of sources for that also.[https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=yalie+townie&newwindow=1&safe=off&source=lnms&tbm=bks&sa=X&ei=M9zfU75mwo7tBt2-gJgI&ved=0CA4Q_AUoAQ&biw=1680&bih=925[ Dougweller (talk) 19:18, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Yale–NUS College[edit]

Hello, Nickknack00. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Yale–NUS College, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 16:51, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
