HSU Pres Rollin Richmond page[edit]

This page keeps getting chopped down to virtually nothing. Is it possible to put some kind of a lock on it after building it back up? There has been loads of news at our university and his wikipedia page seems to be edited to insulate Richmond from the reality of his leadership.

Ok, let's build it up per WikiPedia standards. I'll work on it as soon as I can. Perhaps over this weekend.--Dabackgammonator (talk) 21:59, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Tagging, Categorizing and Evaluating WPCSU-realted articles[edit]

It has been brought to my attention the need for a standardized way to tag WPCSU-related articles. Some editors and I have reached a consensus for the following:

  • Campuses - Top
  • Campus Facilities - High
  • Presidents/Former Presidents - High
  • Notable Faculty/Alumni - Mid

My personal opinions in other topics are:

What do you think? --Dabackgammonator (talk) 21:23, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

I like it. However, I propose that we try to de-emphasize individual sports within an athletic program and encourage writers to put all athletic programs in one article; with the goal to provide history and other encyclopedic information on the campuses' athletic programs, not promote any particular team. As a start, I suggest tagging individual sports as low. Streltzer (talk) 17:37, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

CSU Chancellors[edit]

  • I've started articles on Glenn S. Dumke and Barry Munitz and expanded W. Ann Reynolds. (Dumke is scheduled for a DYK? feature later this Saturday afternoon). All could use more work, but the stub article on the current chancellor, Charles B. Reed is most in need of expanding. I plan to start an article on the California Faculty Association, and hope eventually to start articles on Collective Bargaining in the CSU and Continuing Education in the CSU. They may have to wait a while as I have some outside writing commitments coming up. Dwalls (talk) 19:47, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
    • These articles looked great. Is there anything we could add to expand upon the Chancellor's office (a general article on history, powers, authority and duties, etc.)? I have previously proposed a creating similar article about the Board of Trustees, maybe the same for the Chancellor's office too? Streltzer (talk) 17:33, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

History of SDSU[edit]

I'm planning on nominating History of San Diego State University at GAN in the next few days. If anybody is interested in taking a look at it to see if there are any pressing issues, I'd appreciate it. A quick copyedit to catch any errors I missed would also be helpful. Hopefully, if this reaches GA, it will be a great example for other CSU universities looking to start their own history articles. If you have any questions/suggestions, let me know on my talk page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Happy editing --Nehrams2020 (talk) 01:41, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

RfC for WP:BOOSTER[edit]

There is a request for comment about whether or not WP:BOOSTER documents a standard consensus and good practice that all editors and school/college/university articles should follow as an official policy or guideline. Madcoverboy (talk) 19:28, 31 December 2008 (UTC)


Is this wikiproject still going on? -ItsHouse1090 (talk) 04:15, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm still plugging away in my spare time, most recently completing assessment of the 94 articles currently tagged as WPCSU. Dwalls (talk) 05:15, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm still here too, doing my best to wikify more article. Streltzer (talk) 19:06, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Me too. I recently updated the endowment figures for all the CSUs. Alanraywiki (talk) 19:12, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
So whos taking Cal State University San Marcos off of the current page? When will the new cal state go on??? -itzHouse1090duhh (like talk me here) 00:42, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Universities COTM Nomination[edit]

Hello WikiProject California State University. I just wanted to let you all know that a university handled by your WikiProject, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, has been renominated for next month's WikiProject Universities Collaboration of the Month. If you'd like to take advantage of this opportunity, be sure to vote for the university. While you're there, consider helping improve one of our current Collaborations of the Month.

Happy editing! -Mabeenot (talk) 19:44, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Active project?[edit]

This project has been tagged as inactive. While I actively edit CSU articles, I'm not really active with this particular project. Any thoughts about retaining the project? Thanks, Alanraywiki (talk) 03:27, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

  • I also actively edit CSU articles, but its been a while since I did anything with respect to this project. Perhaps being inactive is best until such time as momentum renews. Streltzer (talk) 01:51, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
  • I also follow and edit CSU articles. I've changed the tag to "semi-active," which I believe is more accurate. Agreed, we could use some momentum. Dwalls (talk) 03:40, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Massive deletion proposal for potentially dozens of articles[edit]

There is a proposal to blanket delete several articles covering auxiliary organizations. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Agricultural Foundation of California State University, Fresno. This would consist of a large percentage of possible topics of coverage for this WProject. Greg Bard 18:49, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

California State University articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the California State University articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Changing this project into a task force of WikiProject California[edit]

It's been 2 years since the started the project back in October 2008 and has been completely inactive since 2010. The project has 133 articles and WP:CAL has 33,500 articles. Based on the general project activity level, number of participants, and the overlap in scope with WikiProject California, I thank this project should be changed into a task force of WP:CAL and remove {{WikiProject California State University}} banner and replace it with {{WikiProject California|csu = yes |csu-importance =}}. Any thoughts? JJ98 (Talk / Contributions) 03:18, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, since there is no objections, I guess I will covert into a task force. JJ98 (Talk / Contributions) 05:59, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Discussion on consolidating inactive and semi-active university WikiProjects[edit]

This project may be affected by a proposed consolidation of inactive and semi-active WikiProjects covering universities. The proposed consolidation is being discussed on the talk page of WikiProject Universities. We are seeking feedback from the projects that may be impacted before we decide on a course of action. Please drop by to participate in the discussion. Thanks! –Mabeenot (talk) 06:52, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
