How fortunate!  − Reaganaut  22:09, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
Yes, for at least another five years --Jiabao 22:13, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

Thanks for all your contributions! I just made you an admin. Admin 09:32, 25 December 2007 (EST)

Ha! Nicely done. Ttan 21:11, 16 January 2008 (EST)


Is it just me, or does the Tiananmen Square picture look slightly... airbrushed? Or does Wen always look like a stiff, formal, dour posed corpse? Ttan 14:12, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Haha, hard to say. You know how these official portraits work. At least no one's been disappeared out of the photo the way the Soviets used to do it. Jiabao 14:23, 17 January 2008 (EST)


  • I saw you standardized the article names for MBA, MFA, and MIA. But what about all the others.. Category:Degrees!?  − Reaganaut  18:53, 18 January 2008 (EST)
Keep the Style guide for alumni pages in mind, whatever you do. Ttan 06:09, 19 January 2008 (EST)
Maybe the "MBA" article, rather than being a disambiguation page, can be about the MBA degree. At the top, a "See also" line can be used to direct people who were looking for the Multicultural Business Association. This assumes, rightly I think, that the degree is more important than the student group.  − Reaganaut  09:13, 19 January 2008 (EST)
Hm. I actually got interrupted midway through, which was why I didn't do MS, MA, etc., but now I'm a bit undecided. My thinking was that we would expand acronyms since we do that for everything else. "Standardization" in the vein of keeping the main article for something under the full title with a redirect under its initials (e.g. ABC). How to handle MBA in particular, given the duplication, is fine with me either way. Jiabao 09:31, 19 January 2008 (EST)
I should add: so I won't make any more degree edits unless there's consensus here—any thoughts? Jiabao 11:39, 20 January 2008 (EST)


Too bad it's so lamentably short on content at the moment... :hint hint nudge nudge: :O Mch 14:47, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

I get the idea now

Pacman wrote me too, and I posted this to him:

Oh, I get it, Pacman. I read more of the WikiCU and got the idea. Sort of a cross between Wikipedia and a blog? When you made the humor broader I saw it was meant to be lighthearted. Yeah, I guess Wikipedia standards really won't work, since WikiCU is necessarily going to include a lot of "original research" that WP abhors. Sixth Floor Jay 00:39, 28 May 2009 (EDT)


Please explain your reasons for undoing my edits, and I will be happy to consider and act accordingly. Thank you!
