Lead-in to history[edit]

An editor has placed a long lead in to the paper's history, germane to Fairbanks, but irrelevant to the town. It can be easily summarized as "started a paper where a trading post existed the year before" or somesuch. A lengthy history is distracting to the article and quite unnecessary. Interested readers can link to the article on Fairbanks. Distracts from WP:TOPIC. Student7 (talk) 22:48, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

I disagree. The information doesn't go into too much depth and is necessary to establish context for why the newspaper was founded at that particular time. The economy of the area inherently affects the newspaper, as demonstrated by later sections detailing the growth and expansion of the paper. I agree that you don't want to go into too much detail, though. One paragraph is enough. Anything more would be starting to get off topic. JKBrooks85 (talk) 23:09, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Article really looks good. I'm assuming that you are aiming at review and maybe GA? Student7 (talk) 12:05, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

  • That's the goal. I spent some time accumulating sources, and I'm not quite through running that stack through the sausage grinder and into the article. Some more pictures would be a big help if you can think of any that are relevant. JKBrooks85 (talk) 12:52, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
