Wikithon Badge

Because why not? Participants can badge their user pages if they want by pasting: {{wikithon2013}} Absentminded 02:36, 25 April 2013 (EDT)

Awesome! cds2148 09:43, 25 April 2013 (EDT)
I hereby sanction your new badge idea. Absentminded 00:19, 6 February 2014 (EST)

Editors' Message Board

  • So I think we should create some kind of page to use as a 'message board' of sorts where editors can post things for other editors, or check in for news. For example, I see someone has tried to start a discussion about the Notability standard at Talk:Notability but if you didn't look at recent changes today, you might not know. I'm not really familiar with wiki back-end and management, so I'm not sure what the best way to do that is (and we're using the Community Portal for something else). But I think that would be a good step towards maintaining the momentum from 2013 Columbia Wikithon. Let me know what you (and others) think. I'll try to flag down a few other people so they know I've posted this (the fact that I need to go post on individual talk pages neatly demonstrates the issue I'm talking about).

  • On this similar note, is there a place where we can find the earliest articles created so that they can be refreshed. Ad2397 09:52, 30 April 2013 (EDT)
  • OK I've created this page: WikiCU:Editors bulletin board. Maybe we can put a link to this on the main page, the community portal, maybe the welcome link?
Yeah, this is a very good idea. cds2148 22:58, 1 May 2013 (EDT)
  • Hey Cds. I'm a new user and I just added Empire State University and wanted to ask if it fit with the goal of the wiki. I was also considering starting a How I Met Your Mother article and cataloguing all the references / shots from Columbia as I watched the show. Thoughts? Rkuykendall
Hello! First off, sign your posts on talk pages with four tildes in a row to add your name and a timestamp (four of these: "~").
As for Empire State University, fictional portrayals of CU are within the goal of the wiki (not that I am the arbiter of that). Columbia references in HIMYM would also be cool. Ted Mosby already has a page. And see fictional alumni for a Marshall mention. cds2148 13:20, 28 September 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I just figured I would ask a recently active user instead of tracking down the highest authority somehow. That way I knew I wasn't doing anything obviously wrong. Thanks for the help! Rkuykendall 13:43, 28 September 2013 (EDT)


  • doesn't seem to be any problem... Admin 18:43, 23 November 2013 (EST)


Was Wuad2015 a Columbia student that decided to try spamming the site...? What happened there? —Mark Bao 19:55, 27 February 2014 (EST)

Not a Columbia student. Don't know the whole story. cds2148 22:06, 27 February 2014 (EST)
  • Pls give me mod. Or at least a Wikithon badge. Uf001 11:03, 22 February 2016 (EST)
