Why is Virginia Tech under W? I assume there's some technical reason, since the subcategories seem to be automatically placed into letters, but I don't know enough about the technical operation to guess what that might be. Chuck 00:06, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Never mind, I figured it out by looking at some of the other subcategory pages and corrected it. Chuck 00:09, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Missing Alma Mater[edit]

How do you add your alma mater if it's not listed here? User:MattFBC 1 November 2006

Simply add the following to a user page:
[[Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Your College Here|USERNAME]]
This will place the user in a new category, which will automagically appear on this list! See Wikipedia:Categorization for more details. here 00:18, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
