VPI[edit]

I assume from your name that you're a Tech student and/or graduate? (My wife went to the vet school in the late 1980s.) What's the story with a medical school starting there - do you know? If so, could you add anything to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University about it? - DavidWBrooks 18:56, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Whoa - that was quick! Sounds like kind a weird setup, but who knows? -DavidWBrooks 19:45, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)
If you look into the structure of governance, VCOM's Chairman of the Board is John Rocovich, who is a member of VT's Board of Visitors and an old Hokie; VCOM's namesake Edward Via is the son of Charles Via, for whom VT's Department of Civil Engineering is named, and foundations left by the Marion Via estate provided the funds to start VCOM. In the Virginia budget environment of 2001-2004, it would have been politically impossible for VT to get approval to build a costly new medical school, but starting the school privately got around that; I think what they're trying to do (if you'll allow the use of a fuzzy they) is present the VA General Assembly with a fait accompli when VCOM gets accreditation and/or the political time is right. --VT hawkeye 20:02, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Big East[edit]

Big up from OJ on adding/restructuring Big East Conference.

Small World[edit]

I grew up in Stratton Woods, went to South Lakes High School and graduated from Virginia Tech in 1998! Small world... -Husnock 23:38, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Well, I live about a mile from SL, but I'm not a native -- grew up near Richmond. Reston's a cool place, though, I gotta say. VT hawkeyetalk to me 00:22, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

PhantomStrider[edit]

I didn't mean my work to be egotistical. I just put it up so the users could look at my work in articles. I figured it'd just be profiled away so users of the game could look at it when they like. I've deleted the article so lets leave it... There was no need to be rude about it hawkeye.. You could've just said delete it.

Actually, I did. More precisely, the entire content of my change was "Delete per nom" and a signature. And to cap off, I don't think the original nominator, User:ReyBrujo, whose text you're probably getting upset about, was being rude either. See your talk page. VT hawkeyetalk to me 15:53, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Retired numbers[edit]

This is the second time this has had to have been reverted, and I'm afraid that whether the Hartford Wolfpack has "retired" those numbers or not -- which they haven't, seeing as Purinton and Giroux still wear #5 and #10 -- there is no more "Hartford Whalers" team eligible to retire anything. RGTraynor 19:23, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Considering that the numbers will hang on the same rack as 2/9/19, eradicating the information entirely is extremely pedantic. A distinction should be drawn in the Hartford Whalers article, perhaps (which I put in), but some notice needs to be taken that there are a few more Whaler numbers hanging at the Mall now. VT hawkeyetalk to me 19:59, 9 January 2006 (UTC)
If you think it's listable under the Hartford Civic Center page, feel free, but I suppose it's about as significant as if they still have the 1986 All-Star Game banner hanging from the rafters. Beyond that, no, no notice really needs to be taken, because the "Hartford Whalers" have in fact retired nothing new. RGTraynor 20:32, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Franklin Parks[edit]

Yes, it turns out he has no notability, but the A7 criterion can only be applied when there is no claim of notability whatsoever; consensus has indicated that being a sports figure is a claim of notability. Furthermore, it should be fairly obvious when to apply the speedy deletion criteria; you had to do research in order to figure out that he's just one player who hasn't done much, which is usually what happens during an AfD discussion (i.e., the system works). I for one tend to apply the CSD rather strictly because deletions are supposed to be serious affairs. Seeing as how you're fairly new to AfD, you probably don't recognize a lot of people yet. I can tell you that Jaranda is someone who knows when articles can be speedily deleted and would have tagged it as such had it qualified. Not that his (or mine or Mgm's) judgement is infallible or anything, of course. Regards, howcheng {chat} 00:28, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Most?![edit]

i searched through the history and the question at Talk:Telephone_numbering_plan#Most.3F.21 relates to infomation you added. could you possiblly answer it? Plugwash 03:07, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Question answered. You may want to avoid the incredulity ("?!") when you're asking questions about something you don't know much about; it tends to put people on the defensive before they even read your comment. VT hawkeyetalk to me 04:19, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey you seem like a pretty big Harry Turtledove fan. I work at the Turtledove wikicity and we need all the help we can get. Anyone is invited. Raylan 15:01, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Walker vs J. Marshall/AAA schools in Richmond[edit]

I just saw your message in my page. The school enrollment data that the VHSL uses for its official classification figures is from the Virginia Department of Education. There is a link that gives detailed data on fall enrollment. I don't use the VHSL directory to show enrollment figures because they are grossly inaccurate for some schools, such as Alleghany which is a legit AA school, but the directory states it has 658, which is probably the 9-11 enrollment, which is how A/AA/AAA classes were determined until 2003 when they now looked at the entire school. If Alleghany had 658 in 9th through 12th grade, they'd definitely be a Group A school.

Based on the DoE's info, in 2005-2006, John Marshall had 978 students, and Walker is at 640'ish (but that's not in the DoE's data for some reason). That's why I say that Walker is the smallest AAA school. There's also some Appomattox Governor's school in Petersburg or something like that which is A in athletics and AAA in academics. . .

Yes, you are right about Richmond schools all playing in AAA just for the status. That's in the AAA Central Region's page. As with Northern Virginia being stricter about AA/AAA cutoffs, they are to a good degree, but South Lakes, George Marshall, Stuart, Falls Church, and Potomac all are AA size and are AAA anyway. It's also probably because they've been AAA so long and that they'd feel embarrassed to play in AA, like the Richmond schools.

The only place where the cutoffs will be strict are with the Loudoun schools, because they want their schools to be AA and only AA. Loudoun Valley and Stone Bridge are AAA right now, but Heritage looks like the next one that should bump up a class. Funny thing is when the next playing cycle happens, Heritage will be bigger than Stone Bridge, but they will be in AA, and Stone Bridge will be in AAA.

If you edited the Walker page, that's fine. I saw it and I don't think it changed much really, not to mention that I'm not from Richmond, though I know a lot of folks that do. Thanks.

Carolina Hurricanes[edit]

Then Oleg Tverdovsky's nationality flag on his article needs to be changed to russian, not just in the Caroline Hurricanes article. Since the nationality stated "Ukrainian" I had thought he is. Xioyux 14:13, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for clearing that up. Xioyux 15:24, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

HELP

I have added a picture that my father is in to the Charles Schultz page and I don't know how to say the right words to get past the copy Right stuff. My dad was given the photo as part of the first over 75 team. Sparky started it it as an over 50 league --- until he turned 55 --- then it became over 55 and so on and so on ...

My dad was within a few months of Sparky's age and just went along for the ride. Sparky did not like to fly and my father would often fill in for him (on the ice) at tournments in British Coulumbia.

I digress --- How do I say the right words to keep this great photo here, where I beleive it belongs.

This Wiki stuff is much to confusing (and IMHO User Hostile). Snoopy_J@hotmail.com

PS My dad is 2nd row 7th from left (gray sweater) PPS I also have personal autographed photo of a Jerry Heffernan who played for the Montreal Canadians, and won the Stanley Cup in 1944. I think that he is in this photo also. <babble off>

Naming the Civil War[edit]

You have worked on Naming the American Civil War within the last few months. I am stepping back from the article for a day or so to avoid an edit war. My request is that you consider stepping in to apply some peer pressure in the interest of civility, NPOV, assuming good faith, etc. It's up to you. -- Alarob 00:15, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

FYI, if you would like to add a ribbon to your user page in memory of those who were lost in today's events, you can use {{Virginia Tech ribbon}} to place a small orange and maroon ribbon in the top right corner of your user page (similar to the {{tl|administrator}} icon). --BigDT 04:21, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Because I have no barnstars to give, nor am I near any barns from which to steal them...[edit]

For your tireless and totally uncompensated efforts against the vandalism, stupidity, and other assorted crap that have been almost magnetically drawn to Virginia Tech-related articles since news of the massacre started to filter onto Wikipedia, I award you a bonus of ten Norton dollars, redeemable in gold from His Imperial Majesty's Treasury at some point in the indeterminate future. --Dynaflow 04:22, 4 May 2007 (UTC)


Hurricanes & Capitals[edit]

I'm probably being 'super' picky about this, however your 'pro styling' of the Honored Members content, should be 'Hall of Famers' then 'Retired Numbers'. GoodDay 20:32, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: Fair use of logos[edit]

I don't know about this claim about other Wikipedias not permitting "fair use"; my guess is that under other legal systems there is some rule about how to use the logos of sports teams -- it's just not called fair use. (Otherwise, why would the Germna article on Arsenal FC show its logo?) As for this war on logos, I'm amused that some of the folks who rail about too many bureaucratic rules or wikilawyering are now indulging in that very same wikilawyering to defend their position. I'm also amused that these folks decided to allow Betacommand -- who is currently out of favor for his mechanistic approach to solving problems about inproper names & external links -- to be the point guy on this. (I can think of a few people with enough Wikipedia-wide respect who probably could get away with it.) Undoubtedly their belief comes from Jimbo's diktat against fair use in Wikipedia -- but (1) even he has admitted that fair use sometimes has its place; & (2) Jimbo has been wrong at times -- even he has admitted to his failings. Maybe we ought to ask his opinion on this, since I can't believe he wouldn't agree that the "no free use" advocates are in the wrong on this topic. -- llywrch 18:48, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

ACC Sunday Night Hoops[edit]

I agree with the prod. I would have done the same myself but, not being aware of the significance of the telecast, I decided to look for some direction. I certainly know that the teams involved are notable. I'll watch it until it goes red on the unlikely chance that it is disputed. Cheers! --Stormbay 23:56, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

I thank u for putting in the CFL cities on the big four thread, but I still believe that the CFL is better (and you seem to agree) than the NFLE, and I was replying about a pair in a sentence about that, which I tock out because it was just silly and unture. Sry for any inconvenience and thanks again, being a Blue Bomber fan, it means alot. User:Kanga-Kucha 20:19 PM, June 09, 2007

PS, I used RW as an example because most american GI football fans would reconise him, though he is washed up due to his habit, which has lowered his performance. IMO, it should be more known that many NFL players come to play in the CFL and don't make it, or aren't as good in the CFL as they are in the NFL. There are however many examples of CFL players making it to the NFL and doing well, such as Paul Garcia and Kenton Keith.

I may also meation the Arena League, but not put down the city of the current teams, such they change like every year. User:Kanga-Kucha 20:19 PM, June 09, 2007

WikiProject Ice Hockey August 2007 Newsletter[edit]

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear VT hawkeye! You are receiving this newsletter because you have signed up as a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey. The purpose of this newsletter is to update on the goings on of the project, as there have been major changes, and a lot of new recognized content in the past few weeks. If you are an inactive user, you probably won't recognize the new and improved state of the WikiProject!

From the project, Maxim.

New recognized content

By Maxim
There have been a lot more Good and Featured articles written in the past few weeks. Here is a list:[1][2][3][4]

Featured articles
Good articles
Featured lists[5]
Notes
  1. ^ All articles are in order of promotion, as written on the main WikiProject page; FA's have official dates of promotions.
  2. ^ A star represents a featured article or list
  3. ^ A green circle represents a good article
  4. ^ Stanley Cup is an A-Class article
  5. ^ The lists system differs from articles, and doesn't give an official date of promotion
Article Improvement

By Maxim

Upon some discussion on the WikiProject talk page, the Article Improvement Drive page was revamped by Krm500 and Maxim. It was renamed Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey/Article Improvement, and it includes two section. The first section is called articles in dire need of improvement. It list articles, usually important, that are in very poor shape. The second section is called requested help. Users list an article they request help improving a certain article, which will facilitate collaboration, which is the aim of any WikiProject. There is one article currently listed there, Henrik Lundqvist, here. The goal is to at least get it to Good article status.

Diacritics

By Maxim

In the past few weeks, there has been quite heated discussion about the use of diacritics in article name. The current guideline is using diacritics in the pages of articles of all player names which require them, but redirects are exempt.

Task forces

By Maxim
There have been two new task forces started within the WikiProject to coordinate major topics.

Sweden Ice Hockey task force

This task force was initiated by Krm500. Its current goal is to improve Henrik Lundqvist to Good or Featured article status. It covers all Swedish clubs, leagues and competitions and associated articles, players and coaches that are Swedish, or have played/coached for a Swedish club, and arenas in Sweden. They plan to eventually operate as a sort of a sub-project, which will have its own articles for creation, ranking importance and quality of articles, and co-ordinate article improvement. Its current members are Krm500, Bamsefar75, and CLAES.

New Jersey Devils task force

This task force was initiated by Bsroiaadn. Its goal is to improve New Jersey Devils to Featured Topic status. Although it currently meets the required article count, the task force wishes to improve it further. Its area of coverage is very similar to the Sweden Ice Hockey task force. Its members are Bsroiaadn, JHMM13, FutureNJGov, Sportskido8, Michael Greiner, JRWalko, and Soxrock.

Requested Images

By Maxim
After discussion on the WikiProject talk page, Serte created a page for Requested Images. The page encourages users to license images for use on articles. The page also has section to request images for players, arenas, game situations, miscellaneous, and team and league logos. The page has been quite popular; since it was created on July 21, there have been six completed requests. There are four currently outstanding requests:

Article assessement completed

By Maxim
On July 12, Kaiser matias announced that he had completed assessing all the articles with a {{ice hockey}} tag, sorting them into Category:Unassessed Ice Hockey articles. Kaiser matias has ranked about 9000 articles in that category, and most were stubs, and "have no information at all", according to him. Everybody is encouraged to expand the stubs into real articles. This effort took around 5 months. A big thanks goes to Kaiser matias from me and all the project.

VT geographical location[edit]

A question on this revert: [1]. I was under the impression that the Alleghenies ended quite a bit to the north of the New River Valley, which would actually be flanked by the Blue Ridge and the Cumberland Mountains. I think the anon might have been right, but I'll leave it to someone who is/was a local to make the final call. --Dynaflow babble 13:23, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I also question this revert, and I have made a note on the talk page with a suggested revision. I'm also curious about your opinion regarding the question about the campus' newfound "notoriety". It seems clear that the April massacre put the school on the map in the minds of many people, as noted by coach Frank Beamer in this article: "People know about Virginia Tech now that didn't last year at this time." In light of this, should there at least be a passing mention in the lead paragraph? HokieRNB 15:26, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Addressed all of this on VT talk. Thanks. VT hawkeyetalk to me 18:02, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey newsletter[edit]

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear VT hawkeye! You are receiving as you are a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey There's been more new thing going on at WP:HOCKEY, and I think this will help you to stay informed. Since the last newsletter sent out in August, there's been great changes. Read on to find out! Maxim(talk)

This just in:
Maurice 'Rocket' Richard Trophy has just been promoted to featured list status, while the bot was delivering the newsletter. Maxim(talk) 02:02, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

And I've just promoted Art Ross Trophy. And Clarence S. Campbell Bowl is at FLC. This should be the last update. Maxim(talk) 00:40, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
New recognized content

By Maxim

Especially due to the featured topic drive, there have been many new featured lists promoted concerning NHL awards. Here's the full list of all the 13 FL's promoted since the last newsletter.[1][2]

  1. Featured article Hart Memorial Trophy
  2. Featured article James Norris Memorial Trophy
  3. Featured article Vezina Trophy
  4. Featured article Conn Smythe Trophy
  5. Featured article Frank J. Selke Trophy
  6. Featured article Lady Byng Memorial Trophy
  7. Featured article Lester B. Pearson Award
  8. Featured article Calder Memorial Trophy
  9. Featured article Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy
  10. Featured article King Clancy Memorial Trophy
  11. Featured article Jack Adams Award
  12. Featured article Presidents' Trophy
  13. Featured article List of Calgary Flames players

There have been no new good articles or featured articles. Maurice 'Rocket' Richard Trophy has been given A-Class status due to multiple issues raised at FLC.

  1. ^ The last one, List of Calgary Flames players, is the only one not associated with the featured topic drive.
  2. ^ At the time of publishing, there were 5 lists at WP:FLC and 2 lists in the "Holding cell", as there's been an accepted guideline to not put more that 5 trophy lists at the same time to, "compensate for the sanity of the reviewers".
Did You Know?

By Maxim
There have been 4 new articles featured in the Did You Know section? on the Main Page since August.

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

Started by User:Scorpion0422, the aim of this drive is to make NHL awards a featured topic. A featured topic is basically a set of very high quality articles (good articles and featured articles/lists). In this case, the topic is NHL awards. Many users have helped, including Scorpion0422, Resolute, Serte, Hasek is the best, Maxim, Croat Canuck, Spike Wilbury, FutureNJGov, and T Rex/Dinosaur puppy. The progress has been very good; there are 12 featured lists promoted, and 2 good articles:

  1. Featured article Hart Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  2. Featured article James Norris Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  3. Featured article Vezina Trophy (Scorpion)
  4. Featured article Conn Smythe Trophy (Serte)
  5. Featured article Frank J. Selke Trophy (FutureNJGov)
  6. Featured article Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (Scorpion)
  7. Featured article Lester B. Pearson Award (Scorpion)
  8. Featured article Calder Memorial Trophy (Croat Canuck)
  9. Featured article Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy (Maxim)
  10. Featured article King Clancy Memorial Trophy (Maxim)
  11. Featured article Jack Adams Award (Maxim)
  12. Featured article Presidents' Trophy (Scorpion)
  13. Stanley Cup (Earlier collaboration, very many involved)
  14. Traditions and anecdotes associated with the Stanley Cup (Maxim)

Check the project page if you are interested in helping out. Although it's closer to being done than not, there's still work to be done. The next topic that might be tackled is Stanley Cup, but this remains purely speculative and in discussion.

2006 Chick-fil-A Bowl[edit]

For the past month, I've been working on the 2006 Chick-fil-A Bowl article. I've brought it up to GA status and am now working on making it a featured article. I'd really appreciate it if you could take a swing by the nomination and leave any suggestions or support you might have. Thanks! JKBrooks85 03:20, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Murders at a college[edit]

Hi Hawkeye, I figure you might be able to help on this subject. There is currently an edit war at St. Mark's College (University of Adelaide) regarding whether a non-notable murder that occurred on the college grounds 16 years ago should be afforded a paragraph in the article. I think it's ridiculous, seeing as VT mentions the most notable school shooting in US history in a one-line wikilink. Please help end the madness. Yeti Hunter 10:32, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey March 2008 Newsletter[edit]

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

There has been numerous new recognized content, so much that it's too time-consuming to sift through the "trophy cases" on WP:HOCKEY. Some interesting achievements:

Task forces

By The Pancake of Heaven!

We are working to create a new task force within the WikiProject to deal with topics related to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It hasn't been created yet; but it aims to expand articles based on former and current Pittsburgh Penguins players and articles. Good luck!

New Administrators

Currently 0 promoted admins! Be the first one at WP:RFA.

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

The original featured topic drive, initiated by Scorpion0422, has concluded succesfully. National Hockey League awards is now a featured topic, with 24 articles in total. Of them, 20 are featured lists, one is a featured article, and the other three are trophy articles that were too short to become featured lists. Eight users signed up to help out, shown here. The next Featured Topic hasn't been decided upon, and the ideas and organization for it fell apart. If you have any ideas, don't hesitate to share them at WT:HOCKEY.

Notes
  • More editors are needed to help out with the newsletter. The newsletter creator doesn't have an infinite nor perfect supply of ideas, and thus he might omit some interesting news.
  • Portal:Ice hockey is being considered for featured status.
  • Should Chris Pronger have been suspended for more than eight games for stomping on Ryan Kesler? Vote here!
  • Help Patrik Stefan -- one of the greatest NHL draft busts -- become a GA status article.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of players who have converted from one football code to another, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gridiron. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
