I just thought of an argument that articles about schools are maintainable (on the hypothesis that CZ will grow to WP size in a few years). It is that, at any given school, there is bound to be some kid who wants to add The article about his school to CZ. Then, because CZ will become famous and influential, his teachers will look at it, look at our rules about articles about schools, and clean it up.

So, I think I have no problem with articles about schools. --Larry Sanger 09:41, 28 January 2007 (CST)

I was wondering if I should add it or not, however I added it for two reasons:
  • One, I felt that I had some good quality content. I started the same article on Wikipedia, but people just added stuff until it became bloated.
  • Two, an IB conference was held at Somerset, which I feel makes it notable.

this has not been changed substantially from Wikipedia

and no one points to it except one user; I will write that user requesting that he point his page to Wikipedia instead. by policy, here, we need not maintain an unchanged Wikipedia page that is not heavily linked to

I rewrote this page fully from scratch. I copied nothing from Wikipedia. However, I did start the article on Wikipedia so there may be some similarities. Ryan McCue Let's have a chat 18:22, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

Ryan, I commented out the speedydelete to give you a chance to perform the [[CZ:The Big Cleanup ]] on this article. Could you do that for me please? --Matt Innis (Talk) 16:09, 6 April 2007 (CDT)

Done, I think. Ryan McCue Let's have a chat 22:42, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
Much better, I think it is safe now. Do perform the cleanup and wikilinks when you get a chance. Thanks for you hard work! --Matt Innis (Talk) 22:57, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
Changed cleanup to yes as I'm fairly sure I've done all of it. I don't know where to add links to here from. The best page would probably be the Gold Coast page as Somerset is one of the best known schools on the coast. Ryan McCue Let's have a chat 21:04, 8 April 2007 (CDT)

this article needs disambiguation and reference links

If you Google on "Somerset College", hits returned will show that there are colleges of this name in several countries. Perhaps we should add a disambiguation page showing that this is one of several different encarnations of Somerset Collete. Also, since there does seem to be a public website for the one in Australia, this article would, in my opinion, benefit from having some reference links out to that site.Pat Palmer 13:16, 13 April 2007 (CDT)

Please suggest a name--Somerset College (Australia)? Is there only one there? --Larry Sanger 13:18, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
