College article notability discussion[edit]

I just wanted to mention this discussion taking place about whether 60 or so articles on Korean colleges should be deleted for lack of notability. I'm against these proposed deletions based on the manner in which they were nominated, though I agree that some of the schools may not be notable enough to be included on Wikipedia. I'm interested in hearing the opinions of members of this wikiproject. Rystheguy (talk) 13:43, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

How do I add the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy[edit]

I would like to add information about the University of Hawaii Hilo - the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy and need assistance. I added my information and was told that I couldn't add it because I was an employee. I am very new to Wikipedia and don't know all the rules. Lauralibal (talk) 03:29, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

@Lauralibal: First you should make sure you can find significant coverage of the college in multiple, independent, reliable sources to confirm the notability of the subject apart from the parent university per WP:GNG. For our purposes, that means reliable sources that are unaffiliated with the college or university per WP:RS. Ping me when you've done your homework, and I'll help you get started -- creating an article is easy. Not getting it deleted requires a little bit of homework.

Hello Group. Please I'm new at this and I have a quick question. Please am I able to change the "free_label" on the Template:Infobox university/doc to "governing_board"? Is this allowed? If so how do I do it? Thank you --Bola.coker (talk) 17:23, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Editing Template:Infobox university/doc[edit]

Hello Group Please I am new to Wikipedia and just trying to get the hang of it. I have a quick question, please am I able to change the "free_label" on the Template:Infobox university/doc to "governing_board"? Is this allowed? If so how do I do it? If not what is the purpose of "free_lable" and what is its use? My goal is to be able to add "governing board" to the Infobox of a new article I'm writing but it's not currently available as one of the Data feilds. Thank You!! --Bola.coker (talk) 19:00, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

  • @Bola.coker: You may insert the optional "free" parameters into the infobox template on the actual article page, e.g., the "free_label = Governing board" and "free = Faculty Senate," or whatever label you choose together with the actual name of the board/panel/governing body. That is the purpose of the optional "free" parameters. If you link to the article you are building, I will be happy to assist. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 19:09, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
  • @Dirtlawyer1: Thank you so much. I will try it now. I will also link the article once it progresses for your feedback. --Bola.coker (talk) 19:21, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Happy to help, Bola. Just let me know. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 19:23, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

History of Michigan State University FAR[edit]

I have nominated History of Michigan State University for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 18:37, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
