Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech[edit]

I recently expanded this article, paying attention to references. However, I'm somewhat unfamiliar with writing articles about songs, and I'm not sure where to take the article from here. What needs to be done to bring it closer to GA status? —Disavian (talk/contribs) 02:19, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

A few suggestions:

  • Put the "Lyrics" section first or second....I was reading the article and there are references to the song, but I didnt understand them because I didn't yet know the lyrics!  Done
  • There are a few parts that have questionable notability. For instance, why is the "Diversity Task Force"'s proposal worthy of mention if it was ignored by faculty and opposed by students? Not done
  • An image of any sort (Public Domain sheet music, photo of the band playing it, etc.) would color up the article nicely IMO.  Done

Other than that, nicely written and sourced article. -RunningOnBrains 19:49, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

I got a couple images last night/this morning, and I'll put them up soon. I was having trouble thinking of a good free image, but someone helped me out :) I agree that the "Diversity Task Force" proposal paragraph needs to be rewritten. According to the sources, it was a big deal at the time, and I need to write it as such. Thank you for reviewing the article :) —Disavian (talk/contribs) 22:01, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I did a bit of work on it tonight, including adding one image. I think it needs a few more before I'll be satisfied. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 07:32, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Do you consider sheet music to be in the public domain? For example, SONGAMB.gif on [1] or ramblin_partition.gif on [2]? —Disavian (talk/contribs) 18:47, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, you mention in the article that some versions of the song are in public domain, so I'm pretty sure sheet music of public domain music would fall under public domain. However, the yearbook page you added works just fine. The modifications to the article as of now look excellent. I would recommend putting it up for WP:GAN. Good work.-RunningOnBrains 15:10, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, GA status has been my goal for this article, and I think it'll be an easy pass when I get around to nominating it in a few days. I'll also add that sheet music, since I think it'd be a good addition. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 16:45, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
Found the template for public domain sheet music: {{PD-ineligible}} and the category Category:Music images. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 23:04, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
