Cultural Studies - Radicalism Link[edit]

Octavabasso, I apologize for my incorrect linking of "radicalism" to "extremism". However, it is incorrect for you to have re-linked the page to radicalism, as it is a disambiguation page, and links to such are to be discouraged, and removed as soon as possible. If you wish, you can go to the page on radicalism, and choose which article you wish the current link to be changed to on the basis of what fits it the best. All apologies. -YK Times 17:49, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello friend. True that cultural studies programs are important, but... Dude: there are over one hundred! They're all over the UK, US, Canada, Mexico, Australia... Listing one is pretty random. The only one that is vital is the CCCS, which basically started cult studies. I think you should delete that link again, okay? Cheers, Dylan --Dylanfly 15:10, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Edit to DePaul University[edit]

Octavabasso, on the DePaul University page, you removed the description of St. Vincent de Paul as one "who valued philanthrophy." St. Vincent is considered the patron saint of charity and it's clear from his Wikipedia entry that work with the poor was his major focus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_de_Paul It's relevant to the DePaul University entry because the university has a strong commitment to low-income students (usually about 25% or more of the freshman population), which it sustains because of its ties to St. Vincent. Would you consider another descriptor that might help make this linkage more clear? Kris (talk) 17:10, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Fembot Collective[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Fembot Collective requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.
