Gunnison river drainage

Please Help Create a Feature article status of this Non-Public School[1] located within the confines of the Gunnison National Forest[2], serving Gunnison county's geologic landform feature (Gunnsison River Basin) area of the North American Continent, and complies with the CDE and the statutes[3] of the State of Colorado; Orsch is listed on the CDE website as a non-public school. This school project envisions other things posted here that pertain to improving the Wikimedia Foundation Projects on a global basis, including and not limiting implementation of creative learning methods utilizing the projects of en:Wikipedia, ru:Wikipedia, sp:Wikipedia, fr:Wikipedia, de:Wikipedia, through the use of Meta:Language select, any number of Meta:Categories, and the (other) projects, Wikimedia, Wikiversity, Wikisource, Wikiquotes,

Some of the long forms don't work as expected within the same project; for example [[meta:]] doesn't work on Meta, while [[metawikipedia:]] does. This depends on the configuration of the wiki and where the names are stored (see also next paragraph). The shortcuts work everywhere. (That is the intention; currently (16-Jan-2007), it does not work on all projects.)

The interwiki map on Meta lists many prefixes, among others, [[wikipedia:]] ([[wikipedia:]]) for the English Wikipedia, working from any Wiki supporting the Meta interwiki map, not only from MediaWiki wikis. Some prefixes work only with a page, for example: wikipediawikipedia: (fails) vs. wikipediawikipedia:Interwikimedia link (works). These prefixes are case insensitive.

One-letter prefixes (as a live check on the table):

Non-Wikimedia interwiki codes have a limitation, that they can only be used through a link. For example, the entry for "John" on Wiktionary, a Wikimedia project, can be accessed by [[wikt:John]] or However, the latter method does not work for non-Wikimedia wikis. For example, the main page on the Mozilla Wiki can be accessed via [[MozillaWiki:Main Page]], but results in an error.

Gunnison, Colorado[edit]

Welcome to Gunnison, Colorado

Gunnison is home to Western State Colorado University and the Gunnison Valley is served by the User:Orschstaffer/Gunnison Watershed School District RE1J which includes Public and Non Public schools[4]. Gunnison is a Municipal home rule which reserves the right to choose how it is governed. Citizens of every municipality in Colorado have an option available to them—creation of a home rule charter.[5]. The law concerning non public schools, 22-33-104, C.R.S., requires that a sequential program of instruction be provided by an independent or parochial school. Such program shall include, but not be limited to, communication skills of reading, writing, and speaking, mathematics, history, civics, literature, and science.[6][7]

“The Voyager probe is now moving out of the Solar System toward the stars. It has a very long journey ahead. It is expected to reach the edge of the Solar System early in the 21st century, but it will not get close to another star for at least 40,000 years. This star is one of the nearest to the Solar System.”[1]*(see: Cite Reference)

Wikipedia:Signatures is a helpful place when thinking about a personal signature.

Personalized Signature[edit]

O  MC 4/ π ≠ 2


Signatures must include at least one internal link to your user page, user talk page, or contributions page; this allows other editors easy access to your talk page and contributions log. The lack of such a link is widely viewed as obstructive.

O = Orschstaffer and links to Wikipedia:User:Orschstaffer where is found the Orschstaffer wikitable which navigates to everything Orschstaffer is (who am I?), everything Orschstaffer is doing (User:Orschstaffer/Schoolhouse), everywhere Orschstaffer might be found (Interwiki Orschstaffer).
M = Orschstaffer and links to Wikimedia:User:Orschstaffer where is found Orschstaffer research into the Wikimedia Foundation's Projects and such other things yet to be enlightened.
C = Orschstaffer and links to Wikiversity:User:Orschstaffer where is found Orschstaffer involved in College, and faithful fraternizer of the fraternity π≠2 which links to Wikimedia:Create room and w:User:Orschstaffer/Schoolhouse/CreateRoom.
4 = Quantum as in mechanics, theories, multipliers, personalities[citation needed], et. al., and links to Contributions.

Other Wikimedia Foundation Projects[edit]

Orschstaffer has made an effort to get involved in many Wikimedia Foundation Projects and is currently experimenting with a signature which will link to all Orschstaffer Contributions across the Foundation's projects.

Gunnison, Colorado #History - rewrite proposal[edit]

The article Gunnison, Colorado History section is focused on Wyatt Earp and includes mostly information unrelated to the history of Gunnison, Colorado. While Wyatt did operate a faro table in early Gunnison (camp), this section reads more like a Wyatt Earp biography. Orschstaffer proposes a rewrite of Gunnison History which will include Wyatt's faro game along with some other notable visitors to the area and other historical facts which were instrumental in the founding and establishment of Gunnison, Colorado. The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad depot building, which still stands on its original location adjacent to the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport property, demands in and of itself a certain distinction for the growth of Gunnison. The W Mountain, seen from just about all points of town, contains prehistoric digs which would also seem appropriate for an historical section. The Gunnison Watershed School District, prior to its present name, was notable in its early day of the Jeffersonian Territorial legislation regarding the school districts which still preserve original buildings on property of local persons instrumental in the growth and population of Gunnison. These among other historical facts which will be added to this section will form the rewriting of Gunnison, Colorado article's history section.
