Complutense University of Madrid[edit]

Self-nomination. Extensive rewriting and reformating over the past few weeks. Well-balanced information, substantiated by facts. Let's see how it goes.

The article looks really great. Could you try again and re-nominate it? :) If you need any help, just holler. I added a line about the new light metro reaching the Somosaguas campus in the near future, hope that is okay. Cheers! Raystorm 12:31, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Maybe we could go for Good Article before aiming FA status? Baby steps... Just an idea Raystorm 12:38, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Done. Nominated it. Let's see how it goes... Raystorm 18:19, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

What does Complutense mean? -- Zoe

1 entry found for complutensian. complutensian

\Com`plu*ten"sian\, a. Of or pertaining to Complutum (now Alcala de Henares) a city near Madrid; as, the Complutensian Bible. -&#35918&#30505


"King Sancho IV of Castile created the Study of General Schools of Alcala"

I wondered if that's a mistranslation - a School of General Studies would seem to make more sense. But maybe there is a different use of Study as a noun that applies here? - IMSoP 18:39, 4 Feb 2004 (UTC)

The latin word is Studium which seems not to mean "study". Google gives among others Academy of General Studies, but I can't find the full Latin name. -- Error 02:51, 5 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Universidad Complutense vs Complutense University[edit]

Perhaps the article name should be "Complutense University" or "Complutense University of Madrid", as that seems to be the official name in English? --Jonik 16:09, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)

NO - the university has no official name in English. Furthermore, "Complutense", taken from the Spanish, is incorrect in English. The correct term would be "Complutensian", meaning "from Compluto", the Latin name of Alcalá de Henares. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deisenbe (talkcontribs) 22:48, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, we already have a redirect at the first of those, and in my (very quick) look at the English information on the official site, I saw nothing to suggest an "official name in English", so I'd say it's fine where it is. "Complutense University of Madrid" is just a straight translation, treating "Complutense" like an adjective - before the noun in English, after in Spanish. Unless there's a lot of existing references to this in English language texts, I doubt it really makes sense to "translate" the name in this way. - IMSoP 17:25, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not sure if those translations indeed are "official", that's why I'm asking. But it does seem that way, e.g. Google gives quite a lot of hits for "Complutense University" and "Complutense University of Madrid". If an established translation exists, we should IMHO use that here at the English Wikipedia. --Jonik 15:11, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)

POV[edit]

The current state of the Republic and Franco sections are verbosely POV. --Error 21:20, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

GA Fail[edit]

  • Spanish Literature,[4] History,[5] Pharmacy,[6] Optometry,[7] Journalism,[8] Psychology,[9] and Sociology[10, don't reference all them, makes it look unorganized.
  • External links in the infobox, convert to references or remove.
  • Lots of one sentence paragraphs
  • Years alone should not be wiki-linked, years with dates, May 17, 1927 should be wikilinked
  • Lack of references, whole sections don't even have one reference
  • References in the middle of a sentence
  • With a trivia section, this will never be FA or GA, remove or incorporate it into the body.
  • References aren't formatted properly, check {{cite web}} on how to
  • WAY too many external links, theres like 20-30, cut it down to 3-5

Please make sure to read the Good Article criteria and take a look at Tony1's redundancy exercises. Once these issues are addressed feel free to re-nominate, Good-luck. M3tal H3ad 09:39, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Have began addressing these issues. Any help would be most welcome, especially hunting down references! Raystorm 20:20, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Initial sentence[edit]

The initial sentence lacks a subject:

According to the annual university rankings conducted by El Mundo,[8], with its Schools of Philosophy, Spanish Literature, History, Pharmacy, Optometry, Journalism, Psychology, and Sociology holding the top national rankings.

Makes no sense without one.

Thanks. I've already made up the mistake.

Article Title Could Be Improved?[edit]

"Complutense" is not an English word, or even formed with an English suffix, while "Complutensian" is an English word. So why isn't "Complutensian" used in the title of this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.225.21.78 (talk) 21:49, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
