DLSU Bar exam explosion?[edit]

Do you expect that an article will be done on the 2010 DLSU bar explosion? The one they arrested an APO brod for?Naraht (talk) 00:19, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes. I was actually surprised how there wasn't an article about it given that it was so well reported by media here in the Philippines. I intend on starting it sometime in the future. Nepomuceno is an APO brod. But I was careful not to mention it in the article since it wasn't really relevant unless I discuss that authorities believe that the blast was, in part, a frat war. Discussing such detail should be reserved for the article itself. Was it reported by media in your country as well? Moray An Par (talk) 02:02, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm an APO-USA Brother, but on International Relations for APO-USA. and get email alerts for Alpha Phi Omega google news. I was looking for a link on it when I added the theme for the 2010 Oblation Run and noticed it was on the DLSU template, but a redlink..Naraht (talk) 04:00, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Reporting the Phil TV Vandal[edit]

I have an idea, for reporting the Philippine TV Vandal to WP:AIV, please use "The Philippine TV vandal is back again with a new IP sock. Passes WP:DUCK test compared to WayKurat's summary report regarding that vandal. List it to Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/ list." Thank you. --Kungfu2187 (talk) 11:10, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Need a little help:)[edit]

Hi, I see that you're actively creating new articles related to UP and DLSU. I myself worked on some articles related to UST. Unfortunately, one got deleted mostly because of violations in photo licensing and vandalism (improper editing by some). Could you help me restore an article? The article is University of Santo Tomas seals and emblems. I can't really figure out how to put photos without violating Wikipedia rules. Can the articles deleted before still be recovered? A similar article with a different name was created by another author, but it also got deleted for the reason that it's a gloried gallery. I hope you can help me on this matter. Thanks! Pampi1010 (talk) 18:58, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for noticing my efforts in Philippine universities but I would like to correct your statement. I am not sure what is your definition of a new article but for me it is creating new pages. The only new page that I've created is History of De La Salle University, which was not even my own content. So I don't really create new article but merely improve on existing ones.
As for your second question, I haven't seen your article so I cannot comment much. You didn't tell me what was its name, the link for the afd, and when was it deleted. Yes, articles that are deleted can still be recovered. Nothing ever really gets deleted here. In Wikipedia, deletion is merely hiding the page from everyone who is not an admin. See Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion.
I am not sure if I can support you in recovering it. I have doubts if UST logos are notable enough and have significant third-party/outside coverage to deserve their/its own article(s). Moray An Par (talk) 00:43, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok. I took the trouble of finding it. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/University of Santo Tomas seals and emblems. I agree with them. However, if you would like to work on other UST topics like the university article, history, people or individual colleges, I can very much be of assistance. Moray An Par (talk) 01:11, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
That's a quick one, thanks! That article is the only one I'm itching to recreate. Now, with the link you've given, I'm gonna ask them to undelete it and make the necessary improvements. Maybe spare some photos for a while till I figure out how to put them properly. I see that the major problem in the article is its lack of encyclopedic content... I was afraid that I have to deal with similar problems before that's why I'm not keen on reviving it. Overwhelmed too by the red warnings of photo licensing.
Anyway, you're pretty active and so good at improving articles. Keep it up! I didn't even notice before that UPLB had such articles till some got higher ratings. I also noticed that UP has a Wikiproject and it's downright extensive. As much as I want to create one for UST, my knowledge of Wikipedia engineering is so limited, and maybe UST is a topic not big enough to have one. Thanks again Pampi1010 (talk) 03:18, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Of course it's big enough, you'd be surprised how there are WikiProjects on individual television shows. I mean we can both agree that a four-hundred year old university is much more significant than a series with 50 episodes. The real question is the number of those willing to edit UST articles. I believe we have both realized that there are not too many Filipino contributors here, much less UST alumni. If you're really determined to create WikiProject University of Santo Tomas, I'd suggest that you recruit Wikipedians first. You can start with UST alumni (I think User:TheCoffee is one, I am not that sure about it though) and Wikipedians who had major contributions on UST articles. Good luck! Moray An Par (talk) 03:42, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the great advices!:) I hope I'll see you in the View History page of UST articles! Thanks a lot! Pampi1010 (talk) 04:13, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Chiming in... You may want to check out the people who have a link to UST on their user page. Naraht (talk) 12:23, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Narath! Pampi1010 (talk) 17:21, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Moray An Par! I was able to get the attention of the admin to edit the article again. [[1]] I may be able to come up with new content, but I might face the similar problems on the photos. So you see, the article is all about the college logos, and since all UST colleges have Wikipedia articles, my plan is to get the logos from there. I don't have such a good idea, do I? Pampi1010 (talk) 03:21, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
I suggest that you change all logos to "File:example.png". Wikipedia does not allow displaying of fair use photos in the usernamespace. Now with the article, the real problem is notability. Are the logos notable/significant outside the university? This would usually be indicated by significant coverage by third-party sources (not published by UST). Unless this is satisfied, then the article will just become, as they said, a glorified gallery. You need outside sources that describe that logos and its history mainly. Moray An Par (talk) 03:34, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! What do you mean by changing? Should I just change the 'File' and file extension? Or upload a new one? When I tried changing the 'File' from 'Image' and putting .png instead of .jpg, the photo can't be viewed anymore. Pampi1010 (talk) 06:41, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
What I meant was "File:Example.png" (see right). It's name is really "example". Moray An Par (talk) 07:06, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for moving Talk:List of University of the Philippines people to Talk:List of University of the Philippines Diliman people. That's something that should have been done a LONG time ago. (In fact, until just now, I'd thought there WAS a UPD people list, and this one was supposed to be a combination of both. Hm. Anyway, thanks again. - Alternativity (talk) 11:10, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. The list still needs a major cleanup though. Removing Los Banos alumni should be prioritized. I can't do it myself for now though since I'm still cleaning up another list. Moray An Par (talk) 11:27, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Good article review: University of the Philippines Los Baños[edit]

Thank you for the work you have put into the article University of the Philippines Los Baños. The article is rather impressive although a few small fix ups need to be done before this article can be promoted to GA-status. I have put the review on hold for seven days to allow you and other editors to help address the concerns noted within the review. I look forward to working with you towards bringing this article to GA-status. Leventio (talk) 08:19, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

The INC article has been unusually stable recently, so I'm hoping to continue the trend. I noticed that you deleted some material. Could you explain your deletions on the talk page please?   Will Beback  talk  08:07, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm de-adverting the article hence the large change in its history section. All statements in its history are now cited while all claims previously there that cannot be supported or mundane were removed. As for the Organization and Architecture section, don't you think it's better now. It's more detailed where it actually explains the INC structure and how the average kapilya looks respectively, while giving their backgrounds and other interesting info. All these are cited. As for the doctrine section, I refactored it into beliefs and practices sections to conform with other articles. As for the beliefs section, I only changed the lead so far and added a section on INC's views on the Bible. Again, these are all cited.
If you have concerns regarding the POV or dubious statements in my edits or in the INC's article, I advise that you state them in the talk page for transparency's sake, and to allow other users to participate in the discussion. Moray An Par (talk) 08:22, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry if I came off too aggressively. I'm all in favor of improving the article, I'd just worn down by fights I have little understanding of. But I still recommend using the talk page to discuss significant edits, before or after the fact.   Will Beback  talk  10:09, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
No problem. I'll post in the talk page to consult other editors when I start editing potentially controversial sections such as its criticism section and a section on inter-religious relations (or something like that) that I plan on adding up once I get the time. Moray An Par (talk) 05:21, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't see any talk page discussion. You're also making a lot of edits with no edit summaries for explanation, including edits that delete sourced material. It'd be helpful if you'd communicate more with your fellow editors so we can understand what you're doing and why.   Will Beback  talk  00:06, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

De La Salle University[edit]

I finished the good article review and closed it as a failed review. Many of the issues are laid out on the talk page but I did not think that they could reasonably be fixed in one week. In addition, modification of the lead and primary sources will change the article in a way that I believe a new review will be needed. Once these issues are fixed, I encourage you to renominate the article as I believe it has the potential of a good article. Ryan Vesey Review me! 15:34, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
