It should also be noted that the Nerds did not send in a group picture to the national Tri-Lam office, thus clinching their probational charter (see 1st movie).


I think it's interesting that the Lambda letter has become a symbol for Gay pride, it is not explicitly noted in the movie, but it's interesting to compare it to the struggle and segregation of different oppressed minorities, (blacks, gays, nerd) that's a major theme of the movie, one of the nerds is a weak and feminine black gay, by the way.


There has been an organization created at the univeristy of connecticut recently, calling themselves "lambda lambda lambda" in attempts to form a fraternal organization similar to that seen within the movie. [1]

Deletion[edit]

There is plenty of OR, no assertion of notability. In fact, the statement that there are only 18 and 13 people at the two branches makes it almost irrelevant. Wikipedia is not a place for every little group. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 01:40, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Recommend SAVE FOREVER As of now this article only serves to confuse people looking for information on the Revenge of the Nerds films, which is perhaps ironic due to this organazation's self-proclaimed dedication to "enjoyment and enrichment of pop culture." --NEMT (talk) 16:13, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Indeed. This article should be deleted. Babkock (talk) 22:11, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Defense[edit]

We are a national fraternity and a serious group. We have only been in existence for almost three years, and while 18 and 13 are not very large chapters, chapters become bigger over time. Many of the more recognized fraternities started off as small as us. We have only just made this page because we have just become national. Before then, we were only, technically, a student group at UConn. We feel we have become a group that should be more recognized and hope to expand. This page is to get information out about our group but we hope for it to be written in an unbiased manner. The page does need to have some editing and cleaning up done to it. We are unsure as to why we are not being considered a "real" group. --Arcturusnfshp (talk) 01:52, 27 November 2008 (UTC) 26 November 8:52pm (GMT -5)

I remember being told before somewhere that when a subject becomes larger and notable, the article should be created, but until then, it shouldn't. I'll let an admin decide. I would like to point out Wp:RS and WP:NOTE though as guidelines for you to refer to. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 01:54, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Ps: I never said you weren't a group. I meant that I felt your group wasn't notable yet to have a page on wikipedia. Also, the article is fairly written except for missing citations, notability, and possibly the contact section (if include at all, in an infobox or external link). I went ahead and fixed some things for you. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 01:57, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for those clarifications, noian, and I appreciate the pages you referenced me to. I understand where you are coming from, but because we do not yet have any published history aside from the one news article when we were first formed, it is hard to cite things that don't exist. To any admins who may be reading this, our homepage (as it were) is in the works. I have made some edits to the page with cited sources to attempt to fit more of the criteria for creating a page, as well as added more of a reason as to why we are important. We feel that this is an important organization because of its openness. A good number of us never wanted to join any other fraternities/sororities because of their limitations. However, getting this word out sooner rather than later is important to us. As soon as we have a completed, official website, we will have more sources to cite. Any other help that can be given into creating a more accepted page.

You might want to create a backup on userspace if it gets deleted so that you don't have to remake the article from scratch if your group becomes considerably more notable. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 02:30, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Comment Official site does not (usually) establish notablity. It can be used to reference things like where it is, etc. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 02:34, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Markvs88[edit]

Where are you getting your info on University of Hartford? The link you provided is unrelated to the article/fraternity and is in no way a valid citation, hence my "section blanking". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.109.127.149 (talk) 05:08, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

It looks like the page has been changed since I cited it. Best, Markvs88 (talk) 03:06, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

?[edit]

How exactly is Nassau Community College N Chapter rather than K Chapter? To rephrase, where are K, Λ, and M Chapters? Either this is a typo by whoever updated the Article, or we need a note about what the heck happened to K, Λ, and M Chapters. The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 03:12, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
