Thanks![edit]

Thank you for the barnstar. I will display it proudly! Alanraywiki (talk) 03:49, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

You bet Alan. It's an honor to have you here. Keep up the excellent work!--Dabackgammonator (talk) 04:59, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:Cal Poly Pomona banner.png[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:Cal Poly Pomona banner.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the image description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Stifle (talk) 16:07, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

A CC template was added to it. Could you remove the PUI label from the picture? Please =)--Dabackgammonator (talk) 20:18, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
I've removed the GFDL license tag from it because you can't license a CC-derived image as GFDL, and fixed up the attribution. Stifle (talk) 20:21, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Template:California State Polytechnic University, Pomona[edit]

Sweet Jesus, that's beautiful. Keep up the good work. I would suggest, though, either removing the font color formatting override for the would-be redlinks or stripping out those links without articles altogether. At present, there's no way for a reader to tell if he or she is actually going to see an article at the other end of a link (short of a close look at his or her browser's status bar while hovering over the link). --Dynaflow babble 09:09, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Dynaflow! I will most definitely change the format of the links because you pointed out a great flaw in the design. If you want to make some changes to it... knock yourself out=)--Dabackgammonator (talk) 04:17, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I have been meaning to award this to you ever since I saw it on the Wikiproject page. You really have done outstanding work on this article and the entire Cal Poly Pomona project. Alanraywiki (talk) 16:30, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Alanray! It really means a lot to receive something from someone as well regarded as you. I will strive even harder to maintain the character of the project!--Dabackgammonator (talk) 19:03, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

References for "Noted students and alumni"[edit]

I'm mildly concerned by your referencing the "Noted students and alumni" on the Cal Poly Pomona article. For people with their own Wikipedia articles, the references would seem to appropriately belong in the article itself, not in the list. Eddy Hartenstein is the exception, since he doesn't yet have an article, and the reference establishes notability.--Curtis Clark (talk) 14:01, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

If I may weigh in on Dabackgammonator's talk page, let me give you my thoughts on these references. I believe the references should be there because 1) most of the articles about the individuals do not include a reference about their college attendance, although they should, 2) including references is a best practice when you look at all the featured lists of alumni here, and 3) having too many citations is rarely a problem on Wikipedia pages. Thanks, Alanraywiki (talk) 19:16, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
My concern is that if the reference adds to the article about the person, it should be there. It's more a matter of scope than of over-referencing, although by putting the reference on the Cal Poly Pomona page, it's still not apparent whether it's in the target article. But, like I say, it's a minor concern.--Curtis Clark (talk) 01:24, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
I moved the references to the their respective articles, so the referencing wouldn't be completely gone. I have a question to either one of you. Would the same reasoning apply if the article in question was "List of Cal Poly Pomona people"? Thanks.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 02:43, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
In terms of referencing, I've seen a general best practice of placing references in the article to which they most pertain. Why have a "List of Cal Poly Pomona people"? For linking people with Wikipedia articles who are associated with Cal Poly Pomona, it seems that "Category: People associated with Cal Poly Pomona" (or something similar; check how similar categories are worded) would be more useful. If the list were to include people without Wikipedia articles, no matter how well-referenced, it might end up at AfD. See Wikipedia:Lists (stand-alone lists)#Lists of people.--Curtis Clark (talk) 13:48, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
In looking at featured alumni lists (for example, List of Athabasca University people, List of Brigham Young University alumni, List of Dartmouth College alumni, and List of Georgia Institute of Technology alumni), the references are all shown on the alumni page in addition to the person's article. If we want to bring this up to featured list status in the future, either as a standalone article or part of the Cal Poly Pomona article, we will have to meet the featured list criteria, which includes verifiability. Regarding people without articles, I think that they can stay a redlink in the short term but long term there should be an article if they are actually notable. In any case, I understand the logic of your view on referencing but I am just going by past practice on featured articles. Thanks, Alanraywiki (talk) 15:56, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Why did you remove explicit reference to notable faculty from the main article? They are still there in the list, but, unless I missed it, it's unclear from the article that they can be found there.--Curtis Clark (talk) 01:19, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

OK, I changed the section's name from "Alumni" to "Notable faculty and alumni". I apologize for making all these changes without consulting anyone, but I'd rather do and get erased/modified than to over think it and not. By the way, if you think anything I made is wrong and should be changed, smashed, blown to pieces, please do so! (P.S. my feelings won't get hurt =P).--Dabackgammonator (talk) 07:21, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Great job on the List of Cal Poly Pomona people. I wouldn't worry about consulting anyone, at least not me. Thanks, Alanraywiki (talk) 15:18, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I agree. Plow ahead and we can tweak later. I'd as soon mention things here because I may have missed your intent or looked at the page at an intermediate stage.--Curtis Clark (talk) 16:51, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Project Cal State[edit]

Wicked idea. I've never participated in a project before on Wiki - how can I help? Sawagner201 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 05:41, 20 October 2008 (UTC).

What are the odds!? That's awesome! Isn't the Inland Empire the greatest?--Dabackgammonator (talk) 03:51, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


WPCSU[edit]

Glad to see you have started WikiProject California State University. About time the CSU starts catching up with the UC system and its WikiProject University of California. One of the big needs is adequate biographical articles on CSU campus presidents. Only a couple are more than stubs, and most aren't even started. I've done some work referencing Sonoma State University and its president Ruben Arminana (I'm an emeritus professor at SSU), and modest edits on a couple others. Obvious need for a systematic approach. Dwalls (talk) 01:46, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

transparent images[edit]

On my talk page a couple of weeks ago, you asked how I turned Image:CSU.PNG transparent. For things like .GIF and .PNG images, I usually just use Paint.NET to add the transparency. Essentially, I use the "magic wand" tool to highlight everything that's not part of the image itself and just hit "delete"—it turns the backgrounds transparent (indicated by the grey-and-white checkerboard pattern). I use Inkscape to create .SVG images, but it's a bit more complicated. In those cases, I have to use a .EPS file, extract the .SVG image, and then edit it by hand in a text editor. I'm sure there's an easier way, but I'm not expert enough to figure it out. The .EPS files usually come directly from the college or university's website. Make sense?

WPCSU Importance Assessment[edit]

Greetings, Dabackgammonator. I've been thinking about a consistent approach to assessing the importance of WPCSU tagged articles. You have appropriately tagged the CSU campuses as Top importance. I would assign the biographical articles on campus presidents as High importance (I've done that for our short list of five or six existing articles). Should notable faculty bio articles be assigned Mid importance? That category also seems appropriate for special single-campus-related programs or facilities, e.g., Fairfield Osborn Preserve at SSU. Are there other categories that could "automatically" be assigned certain levels of importance? What are your thoughts? Dwalls (talk) 06:55, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

It seems to me that notable alumni/former student bio articles also be assigned Mid importance.--Curtis Clark (talk) 14:46, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Agree. Thus, so far we agree on:
  • Campuses - Top
  • Presidents/Former Presidents - High
  • Notable faculty/alumni - Mid
I would disagree with a "mid-" categorization for campus facilities. In my opinion they should have a "high-" level of priority as I think they are a key part of the university's identity as a campus and for the university system as a whole.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 17:16, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
I can see your point, and I can go along with you on "high" priority for facilities as significant as Fairfield Osborn Preserve. Dwalls (talk) 20:39, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

It might be a good idea to post the above points of agreement to the Discussion page for WikiProject California State University, along with any other principles, standards or points of agreement you and others may have arrived at. I'll leave that decision and summary to you, Dabackgammonator. Dwalls (talk) 20:10, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

We should take take further discussions to the project's talk page.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 21:07, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Vanderbilt University[edit]

Howdy! I reverted a series of edits that you made to Vanderbilt University tonight. It seemed to revert to an older version of the page (one where Nicholas S. Zeppos was still interim chancellor, for example), and there was no explanation given for the change. I didn't want you to think I'd just rolled stuff back willy-nilly though. Feel free to revert if I've just screwed everything up. :) Cheers! Esrever (klaT) 05:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

I just edited the unit convertor from sqkm to km2. I don't recall making changes to Nicholas S. Zeppos, but if I accidentally messed it up I'm terribly sorry.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 23:57, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Holy crap dude! I just saw how badly I screwed up the Vandy article.... wth was I doing? My bad. Go Vandy!--Dabackgammonator (talk) 00:00, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

As a person who expressed interest in WikiProject Universities COTM...[edit]

We are starting WP:UNI/COTM, please review the ten randomly selected nominees and vote for the articles you wish to improve. (Category:WikiProject Universities COTM candidates) The COTM will run throughout the month of December. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or comment on WT:UNI/COTM. Have a great day! (I kept your nomination for this round) - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 21:43, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

COTM[edit]

You get as many votes as you like... I've restored your vote. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 22:34, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Sweet. Thank you.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 22:35, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Mexican universities[edit]

  1. Please stop adding information without sources. Some people have spent countless hours trying to improve those articles and you are just trashing them with wrong or just plain outdated info.
  2. People are not required to give you "a through explanation" of why they are deleting your unsourced editions. You are the one who must justify your additions with references if you want them to stay.
  3. Do not make a zillion editions in each article. That's why the Show Preview button is there.
  4. There is no such thing as the "Big 12 Conference" anymore; its dead.[1][2] Stop forcing its inclusion and read before writing.
  5. There are rules for adding fair-use images. Read them. "Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding." We are trying to keep this encyclopedia as free as possible.
  6. It doesn't matter if the UNAM anthem calls it "universidad". It goes without saying that every human being singing that song would clearly know what they are talking about. However, the word means "university" in Spanish and is way too generic, even in Mexico City. Has it ever occurred to you that every university student, staff and faculty member calls its own university "university" in daily speech?
  7. Stop fabricating "conventions" out of nowhere. The convention for the Monterrey Tech campuses is Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Xyz. That's clearly specified by the school,[3] supported by the Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(use_English) (It can happen that an otherwise notable topic has not yet received much attention in the English-speaking world, so that no established usage exists. Very low google counts can but need not be indicative of this. If this happens, follow the conventions of the language in which the entity is most often talked about.) and that's the way they were named before you appeared and trashed them. Stop asserting your fabricated "Tec campuses convention". You made a mess.

- Esteban Zissou (talk) 10:15, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

1 "Some people have spent countless hours trying to improve those articles and you are just trashing them with wrong or just plain outdated info." First, you are talking about the underdeveloped article National Polytechnic Institute. Second, making a good faith edit is not "trashing". "Please stop adding information without sources." if you can go to the article's references, you can see that 4 out of the mere 9 references in the article are are ones I added.
2. "People are not required to give you "a through explanation" of why they are deleting your unsourced editions." Well, maybe not necessarily a "through" one, but definitely more than "-unsourced" for wiping out over 2000 kbytes of information. 1
3. I totally give you that one! I'll try to force down on myself from now on. lol.
4. "There is no such thing as the "Big 12 Conference" anymore; its dead.[4][5]". Dude, if you count with this info why don't you just edit my clear mistake rather than erasing it altogether?
5. "Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding." Exactly why:
and several more have their athletic departments' logo on the infobox and on the Athletics section of the article.
6. "It doesn't matter if the UNAM anthem calls it 'universidad'. It goes without saying that every human being singing that song would clearly know what they are talking about. However, the word means "university" in Spanish and is way too generic, even in Mexico City. Has it ever occurred to you that every university student, staff and faculty member calls its own university 'university' in daily speech?" Usually I would agree with these but look at the University of Virginia. Most people in Mexico, and specially Mexico City refer the "UNAM" athletic programs as "Universidad" just like people refer to the University of California, Berkeley as "California" or the University of Texas, Austin as "Texas".
7."The convention for the Monterrey Tech campuses is Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Xyz." Now who is the one using "just plain outdated info". If I'm an English speaking reader in the English language Wikipedia would I rather have an article titled "Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Monterrey" or "Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Monterrey"? The extra word "campus" makes it sound awkward. In addition, the Tec system article is titled Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education so I don't understand the big fuzz about this move. It's clearly one or the other.

A new round of Collaboration of the Month is about to begin![edit]

The current University Collaborations of the Month is
University of California, Berkeley
WPUNICOTF.png

Every month a B-Class higher education-related topic is chosen for you to improve. Be bold!
This COTM is organized by Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities. (Nominate future collaborations or see past collaborations.)
This WP:UNI/COTM is effective: Dec 01 2008 ~ Dec 31 2008.
Pick your next WikiProject Universities COTM Candidate!

Yes, it's that time! A new article has been chosen our COTM next month.

Here's something I want to try, start treating it as a peer review. Start by skimming through the article, making sure the article fits our article guidelines. Then review for content: any copyvio, notability issues, reference listings, following the Manual of Style. Again, let's make sure we stick to the objectives listed on WP:UNI/COTM. Feel free to use the talk page of the article or COTM page to reflect or express opinions on how to make this program even better. Feel free to utilize #wikipedia-en-robotics connect if you wish, that channel doesn't get used enough and I'm usually there if I'm near a computer.

And here's something even more radical. See if you can attract authors currently maintaining the different COTM articles to join our WikiProject and better yet, our COTM project. I found when I started this program, jumping ships and editing other universities' articles was a big leap, but it's been very fun so far. I'd like to see more people actively participating.

Let's start off the new COTM program the right way. I want to see those articles in GA and FA soon. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy those Black Friday deals. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 09:14, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

CSU Chancellors[edit]

I've started articles on Glenn S. Dumke and Barry Munitz and expanded W. Ann Reynolds. (Dumke is scheduled for a DYK? feature later this Saturday afternoon). All could use more work, but the stub article on the current chancellor, Charles B. Reed is most in need of expanding. I plan to start an article on the California Faculty Association, and hope eventually to start articles on Collective Bargaining in the CSU and Continuing Education in the CSU. They may have to wait a while as I have some outside writing commitments coming up. Dwalls (talk) 19:42, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Backgammon[edit]

Hey, awhile back you invited me on my talk page to the Cal Poly Pomona project (I'm a fellow alumnus). Just wondering if you are playing in the California State Backgammon Championship this weekend.Alanmjohnson (talk) 19:56, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 23:41, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art LACMA meetup[edit]

Due to some unforgivable confusion on my part, the meetup on Saturday the 28th needs to be rescheduled. Please see Wikipedia talk:Wikipedia Loves Art/LACMA rules#Rescheduling poll to vote for a day/time that works best for you. Thank you and I apologize for the inconvenience. howcheng {chat} 05:52, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art new date[edit]

Based on participants' votes, Wikipedia Loves Art LACMA has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 21, 2009 starting at 1:00 PM. Unfortunately, I have a prior commitment and cannot attend. I will need someone to be coordinator for that day. Let me know if you are willing. Thanks, and have fun! howcheng {chat} 17:53, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Loves Art preparations[edit]

Are you read for WLA this Saturday? Here are some last minute preparations you should do before you arrive.

  1. Be sure you have a spiral bound memo pad or notebook (and pen) to take notes and to use for writing the accession numbers, which you then have to photograph (see Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art/LACMA rules for details).
  2. Be sure to print out the scavenger hunt list at Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art/LACMA rules/list. You may also wish to visit http://collectionsonline.lacma.org/mwebcgi/mweb.exe?request=onview1 to make a plan of attack.
  3. Since tripods and monopods are not allowed in the museum, consider making a string tripod (not as good as the real thing, but better than nothing).

Additionally, we will plan to eat out afterwards at a nearby dining establishment (TBD) -- hope you can join us for that. And finally, I was able to make arrangements for my daughter so I will be able to attend after all. Looking forward to seeing you there! howcheng {chat} 19:28, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

R U by any chance familiar withe the Inland Empire Metroplotan Area of Southern California? If not how about with the Greater Los Angeles Area? itzzHouse1090duhh (talk2me) 23:29, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes I do need smoe help, user Amerique and I are have a HUGE discussion on wheather the Greater Los Angeles Template should become the Los Angeles-Orange County Area Template. I am for the move because the G. LA template is missing alot of cities of the IE (it is missing more than half), and also there is all ready an IE metropolitan area template (that includes all its cities and towns, that I have well organized). The LA-OC area has none and there is very little to no information about that area. Please see the talk page of the Greater LA Area by clicking here or just tell me instead if the Greater LA template should be the LA area template to solve that problem or at least give me your thoughts/suggestions, Thank-You and itzzHouse1090duhh (talk2me) 22:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

TfD nomination of Template:Greater Los Angeles Area[edit]

The Template:Greater Los Angeles Area is up for deletion. I believe it should be deleted because it includes all the cities in LA/OC as well as Ventura. It includes some of the IE cities, I think it should be deleted because its too long too may cities and also it doesent include all the cities in that metro and if added it will be WAY too long! I think it should be deleted or trimed into the LA/OC maby Ventura, since the IE has its own template and it not that long, so if its created into the LA/OC it wont be too long, and thats the way I think it should go so please visit the deletion log by using the information below:

File source problem with File:Mexican War on Drugs.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Mexican War on Drugs.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 02:36, 23 May 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:I-Poly logo.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:I-Poly logo.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of U.R. Bronco[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article U.R. Bronco has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I created this article. In retrospect, it does not appear to be notable enough to have its own article, but warrants a paragraph or two at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
