National Research Council[edit]

Your major reorganization of the Michigan page is quite nice. However, I'm wondering if you completely removed the reference to the National Research Council rankings of the graduate disciplines? It is my belief that that ranking is informative and adds value to the description of the University's academic stature. Might you replace that reference? Thanks in advance. 74.66.233.244 (talk) 19:16, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Rocky Mountain Field Station[edit]

I've added a section for this facility, but wonder more generally why there isn't a separate section for facilities which are not part of the campus proper but related to the teaching mission. Included in such a page or set of linked pages or categories would be, for example: Rocky Mountain, Peach Mountain, the Arb, Matthei (sp?) and all of the other facilities that relate to botany and sustainable development. Such an addition would be a worthy one and lend structure to the article.

Someone put in a stub for the pharmacy school, and I've fleshed it out a bit with some cobbled together material. It would be interesting to see some of the other undocumented schools added. I also continue to believe that the LS&A page is a pretty weak specimen given the size, headcount and nominal importance of the undergraduate division. 98.14.129.101 (talk) 15:35, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi Pentawing. At the bottom of this review a last list of sourcing concerns was posted. If you can take care of that we can move it off the page. Cheers, Marskell (talk) 15:56, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

FA Help[edit]

Hi, would you be able to help me with the history section of Davenport, Iowa? A reviewer from the last FAC said it needs a good copyedit and has a "factoid" effect. Thank you, CTJF83 chat 05:30, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:ProvidenceRI seal.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:ProvidenceRI seal.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  — master sonT - C 16:31, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

1997 Michigan Wolverines football team[edit]

I am contacting you based on your extensive involvment in Michigan Wolverines. I have beefed up 1997 Michigan Wolverines football team. It could use some feedback at Wikipedia:Peer review/1997 Michigan Wolverines football team/archive1‎. Also, I had trouble finding game details for the Little Brown Jug game. I hope to take this to WP:FAC so if you get a chance this is one of the more important articles that you might be able to help out.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:16, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

recent edits to UM article[edit]

Thanks for the edits. Please take a look at these figures, which are very stale: "Each year, some 30,000 people apply for admission to the university; almost 42 percent are admitted and some 5,400 new students enroll.[93]" The current figures are more like: 42,000 applicants; 36%-37% admitted; not sure about enrollment. I'd make these changes but am unsure about how to upgrade footnotes. Might you take a look and make the changes? If yes, many thanks.207.237.138.219 (talk) 18:19, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

  • I would suggest looking at Wikipedia:Citing sources and Template:Cite web for information for citation formats and how to use the footnotes respectively. As for the citations, I recommend that you obtain and list the following information: author's name (where available), title, url, publisher, date or year (usually through a listed publication or copyright date), and access date (the day which you accessed the source). That way if the source (particularly a web source) is out-of-date or no longer accessible, one can still find the source by the other listed information (which comes in handy at an Internet archives search).
