The "Upsilonians in Government" heading DOES NOT cite its references. Please don't remove the tag until references are given. --Storkk 16:40, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

List removed[edit]

I've removed the list, obviously. Wikipedia is not a list. Including a short list of alumni is allowable but should be limited to very prominent persons, and have encyclopedic content, and not merely be indescriminate lists of almost every Upsilonian who's ever got a goverment position.

Moray An Par said short list is allowable. So a short list was added. (talk) 06:15, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

No what I meant was a list of around 5 notable people. External links are very much discouraged (aka not allowed). A good indicator of their notability is that they have Wikipedia articles. Since there is a considerable number of notable Upsilonians, please consider creating List of Upsilon Sigma Phi brothers. You can use List of Phi Kappa Psi brothers, a feature list (meaning top-quality), as basis. Be careful not to include non-notable members. See WP:Politician and WP:Professor test for the notability guidelines for politicians and academics since many Upsilonians belong to that.
I'll remove the external links and limit the list to those who are most notable. Moray An Par (talk) 07:08, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
On the other hand you can make it as a membership section, detailing how aspirant become part of the frat, membership statistics: how many UP presidents, congressmen, SC judges etc were Upsilonians. There is no specific guideline governing frats and soros. But if you're interested, you can use existing featured articles (such as Alpha Phi Alpha) as basis. It'll also be a lot better if notable members in this article are presented in prose, not as an extensive list. PS About the 5 notable people suggestion, you may ignore that. There is no defined number. Just don't make it too long. Moray An Par (talk) 07:16, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
