November 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm Paniraja. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to NYU because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page.--Paniraja (talk) 07:31, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Actually the edit of yours that I reverted counts as disruptive. Please see here for further details. --Schiez (talk) 16:20, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

I am relatively new to Wikipedia. I know that there are constant vandalism in Wikipedia, but I was not aware of the particular so called sock puppet. You are wrongly suspecting me. As for my edits, I think you do have a point because no other school of NYU is described in detail. Although I think the CNNMoney.com and Businessweek rankings should be restored. Actually the page that needs the most edit is Polytechnic Institute of New York University, and most of the informations belong in that page. Polytechnic Institute of New York University article is currently locked and when the block is lifted, I will edit and fix the article. I see that a lot of important sourced informations were deleted by the sock puppet you mentioned. I am reverting the NYU article back to your last revision. Thanks --Paniraja (talk) 18:48, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Please feel free to remove the informations you think are redundant or does not belong in the NYU article. I will be more than happy to collaborate with you to improve and maintain the NYU article. Thanks again!--Paniraja (talk) 20:19, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

No one's going to mistake CUNY for the prestigious NYU[edit]

No one's going to mistake CUNY for the prestigious NYU--Megatroll Bough (talk) 07:58, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Why do you think it's unlikely that people might mix up "City University of New York" and "New York University?" It seems very plausible to me, especially for readers outside that region of the U.S. ElKevbo (talk) 14:48, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
In response to both comments, I definitely would not go so far as to say no one would mistake the two. I have lived in several countries, and although not everyone I have spoken to is able to distinguish, most do and usually with familiarity of each institution. Perhaps one reason is that New York City, particularly, is a global "epicentre" and people naturally adapt a more comprehensive knowledge about what's in it, compared to what's in numerous other US cities.
That being said, as with any institutions named after their states to some degree, people are more likely than otherwise to get mixed up. So I understand why there are dab links to distinguish, for example, University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State University, although many other potential confusion points remain unresolved: e.g. University of Michigan and Michigan State University, or Arizona State University and University of Arizona. This dab link structure, if practised, should be consistent across such articles. --Schiez (talk) 19:01, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited New York University, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington Square (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
