Notability concerns[edit]

This template lists a lot of non-notable groups. Has there been any discussion anywhere about whether or not these groups are notable enough to even have Wikipedia articles? --Elonka 18:29, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

My recommendation is that the redlinks be removed from the template, and that some sort of "List of" link be added, to cover a paragraph on each of the groups that aren't notable enough for their own article. --Elonka 17:05, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
One article covering all factions would probably be the best option. I'd hate to see the info removed, even if its notability is suspect. Joestella 08:39, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Student Unions or Student Organisations[edit]

If the template is simply Student Unions - then we'd be able to remove the 'National student organisations' section and just put NUS and CAPA into the 'See also' section. What do people think? Australian Matt (talk) 05:05, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

anyone disagree? Australian Matt (talk) 11:28, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
Well - might as well be bold and make the change Australian Matt (talk) 02:27, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
As further clarification - the edits I've made:
  • put the Tasmania University Union into the main section. There is no reason why Tasmania Uni, with its 1 union article, needs a subgroup - as opposed to Monash, which has 4 student councils
  • the Wollongong Undergraduate Students' Association is linked to twice in the template, once as a campus union, once as a student council. I've removed the council one and left the union one, no point linking to the same article twice
  • the template subheading 'National student organisations in Australia' or 'National student unions in Australia' should, in my view, list the main representative bodies nationwide for students. Listing 'Independents', Students for Palestine or 'Student Unity' makes no sense in the context of nationwide representative bodies.
