May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm Jim1138. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Texas A&M University–Commerce, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Jim1138 (talk) 04:52, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Please find a reliable source. Please don't just make up numbers so they fit. Student numbers can be complicated given part time, full time, undergrad, postgrad, dropouts, etc. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 05:16, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Rankings on conference articles[edit]

Hello. I removed the Rankings column in the Sun Belt Conference article because the Majority of the schools are not ranked. It doesn't make since to put it in the article, if a majority of the schools aren't ranked. Also, when putting endowment numbers, please put "$31,240,000" instead of "$31.24 mil". It just looks better. CorkythehornetfanTalk 22:11, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Each 'conference page' needs to contain the same categories...so you can compare them. Many of the schools were recently ranked...and they may be ranked next year. So, I see no need to withdraw the category because many aren't ranked at this point in time. The fact that they aren't ranked is also a form of information.

The endowment numbers are different on many of the conference pages. There is no consistency between any of the conference pages. Why hasn't that been fixed? See, I just find it strange that you want things done a certain way...but, none of the pages are set up that way. So, why make such a fuss? There are hardly any references on any of the numbers. But, yet you get mad when my changes don't have refs?

I will try to find the page that explains the changes I make. No problem.

Not trying to be difficult...but, I spent some good time adding info to these pages....just to go back and find it erased. Very frustrating.

15 minutes later..... Well....you did get around to most of them....didn't you? Busy, busy. Is it ok if I fill in the populations and some of the other basic info that is missing from some of these conference pages? Or is someone else working on that already?

I found the edit explanation box. Will put it to good use. jeff

It's fine if you fill in the populations and other basic info... I'm not aware of anyone doing that. On the Sun Belt talk page, UW Dawgs suggested you read this. It's an archive discussion on the whole ratings thing in the athletic conference articles. And, most conference articles have the endowment figures they way I've been updating the ones you edit, so it isn't the way I want it. If you want to keep editing on Wikipedia, I might suggest that you create an account. It's free, requires no personal information and you can get additional privileges. An account allows you to have your own personal watchlst, upload files, and you can create new aricles. Just a thought. CorkythehornetfanTalk 04:18, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

I have tried to update some of the endowments that weren't as you requested...A10, Big South, SoCon, A-Sun, etc. I will try to fill in some of the other info as I have time. I will also try to read the article you suggested. Thanks for the help. Jeff

Thanks for the help. All should be corrected, now. I also added a correction to Southwestern University in SCAC....based on the universities website. I forgot to note my edit in summery. Sorry.
