Cleanup tags[edit]

I've added the {{advert}} and {{Not verified}} tags, as the article reads like a brochure, including but not by any means limited to:

  • common ground and deeper understanding in a nonpartisan and nonideological setting
  • The Institute supports 20 policy programs and partnerships directed by leading policymakers and practitioners
  • 'While each is unique in substance and approach, Aspen Institute policy programs all share a common mission and methodology. Each serves as an impartial forum for proven leaders in a given field bringing a diversity of perspectives together in pursuit of informed dialogue and effective action.

I haven't gone to the institutes's website, but based on the lack of citations, I suspect much of it is copied verbatim. --98.204.112.111 (talk) 03:47, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Aspen Institute names top 120 community colleges[edit]

I'm just parking this list here to assist in updating these articles:
































"Red Link" pointing to "Wye River Conference Centers"[edit]

References (here in this section) to specific parts of this article, are based upon the current version of this article ("as of" 10:28, 26 October 2015‎), which is also known as title=Aspen_Institute&oldid=687611648 this version.

By the time you read this, that might no longer be the current ["latest"] version of the article -- so, some things may have changed.

There is a "Red-Link" in the article, pointing to "Wye River Conference Centers". It is located in the "History" section of the article ("Aspen_Institute#History").

I intend to fix that, but first I would like to get some advice (or "consensus") about which method would be best.

Two methods that I could think of:

  1. Just change the WikiText that now says

    "[[Wye River Conference Centers]]"

    to instead say

    "[[Aspen Institute Wye River Conference Centers]]";

    OR:
  2. Instead, create a new "#redirect" page, which would have a NAME of

    "Wye River Conference Centers",

    and would "#redirect" to [the (already) "existing" article]

    "Aspen Institute Wye River Conference Centers".

"NOTE" that the first option would NOT require creating any new articles, nor any new pages in "article space";

On the other hand, maybe this red link was "created" when there was a "rename" that occurred, without fixing all of the "resulting" red links, either by (a) creating a "#redirect" page, or by (b) editing each of the "from" articles still containing links to the "OLD name" -- (and apparently there is at least one of them!: ... namely, this article!)

IMHO, if this red link was "created" by the occurrence of such a "rename", then [indeed] the second option might "be less work" ... so, maybe it would "make sense".

Any other ideas? OR, any "votes" for #1 or #2? OR, any other "comments"? :-) ! Thanks, --Mike Schwartz (talk) 21:00, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
