Red Links[edit]

I noticed that you eliminated all the organizations without wikilinks from Cultural interest fraternities and sororities. Couldn´t you just unlink them? Is this a list of organizations in wikipedia or a comprehensive list of cultural organizations? Can I add back the organizations without wikilinks just for informational purposes? --Coquidragon (talk) 14:19, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

The list is supposed to be of ones that are notable, and ones without an article are inherently non-notable, as are single-chapter non-national organizations and most defunct organizations. Notability in the fraternity/sorority articles (as far as that wikiproject is concerned) is that a group has a few chapters and has been around long enough that the founders have all left school. What I'd suggest doing is creating articles for the ones I deleted with some information filled in about them. They don't have to be in-depth articles, but something that shows their notability. Hope this helps! Justinm1978 (talk) 14:39, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I don´t know about the other groups. Within the Latino group, the youngest (not defunct) organization is 13 years old. There is only one organization with one chapter. There are about 10 orgs with between 3 and 9 chapters, which are only in one state. There is one with 4 chapters in two states. From the wikiproject perspective, can you share some light on notability? I don´t want to create articles for orgs that I shouln´t. Thanks in advance. --Coquidragon (talk) 14:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Really, anything that is considered "national" (IE, formally incorporated as a business, has multiple chapters, etc.) passes for notable in my book. I'm not the judge on this matter, only a member of the jury :) I would suggest that you create articles for whichever ones you think pass the nebulous criteria for notability and see if they stick around. What will get them put up for speedy delete for spam or put through AfD is if the article is fluff about the "vision of the founders and their quest to bring about major societal change" or other stuff like that which is written with dramatic pose. Wikipedia isn't a rush flyer and articles written like one tend to get flagged for lack of notability because they're all talk with nothing concrete to back it up. Let me know if you need any other help, and good luck! :) Justinm1978 (talk) 21:11, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I´ll see what I can do.--Coquidragon (talk) 00:23, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Phi Rho Eta[edit]

Is http://apqgss.tripod.com/Related.html , the only source for the Alpha Phi Omega connection?Naraht (talk) 16:53, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

It's the only documented source that is readily available. I've talked with FRH members on campus here, and they've confirmed for me that it is true. Unfortunately, that doesn't translate to wikipedia. Justinm1978 (talk) 16:54, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Which campus? And any chance we can actually get that added to the Phi Rho Eta national site?Naraht (talk) 17:17, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
UIUC. I doubt they'll add it, though; it was not a very complimentary story and they didn't really want to talk about it. Justinm1978 (talk) 17:24, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess, but still part of their history. Sort of makes me wonder if Alpha Phi Omega should have the fact that Beta Sigma Alpha was considered for the letters... Do you want to ref the change in Phi Rho Eta, or do you want me to do so?Naraht (talk) 17:36, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
If you can do it, that'd be great. I'm not 100% sure the best way to ref that statement with the source provided. Justinm1978 (talk) 17:57, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
I'd just link to it with a simple ref. I'm not really sure how to get more complex either..Naraht (talk) 18:14, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Im the founder of Phi Rho Eta Fraternity, Inc., just wondering where you getting this information from!! If you want to know anything about our fraternity feel free to contact be at mrandolph@phirhoeta.org. And your right your not 100% right!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Etaman (talkcontribs) 19:54, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

The Phi Rho Eta founders were at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The reference for this is actually on the Phi Rho Eta national website. I've made some recent changes to the Phi Rho Eta page. Any additional references that anyone can find for the wikipedia page would be welcome.Naraht (talk) 02:08, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Parkland president.[edit]

While the Alpha Phi Omega alumni database is an acceptable reference, there are lots of other places that are better. Any idea if there is anything on either the chapter or even better school website indicating this?Naraht (talk) 19:55, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

I'll see if the chapter can get that updated Justinm1978 (talk) 19:56, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
