Talk:Akita Hokuyō High School

I'm so glad I made 4 pages for schools that don't exist anymore. --Casey 05:13, 27 September 2011 (JST)

I wonder if the ALT History of the 4 previous schools should be moved to their respective pages? It would also help Casey feel better about his hard work! --owencunn (talk) 11:21, 15 March 2018 (JST)

I would argue that it should eventually be copied, rather than moved (keeping with the precedent in, for example, Aikawa Elementary School). I was planning on copying them to the respective pages once I get them a little more complete. I'm still actively in the process of researching them at the moment (found the online repository for my town's old newsletters); I probably won't find every name, but it would help me prevent errors to just maintain a single list for the moment. Casey's hard work won't be in vain! --SeanC (talk) 14:01, 15 March 2018 (JST)
Oh yeah it's all good, take your time.
I would assume the reason ALT names from former schools are on the Aikawa Elementary School is because pages for those former schools don't exist, so there is nowhere to store that sweet data. I guess I just don't see the connection between Helen G. Stagg and Hokuyo, lol!
Also, I just searched for my own villages files, but the online ones only go back to H20 :( --owencunn (talk) 14:50, 15 March 2018 (JST)
You may be right. It IS a lot of data. Like I said, I'll revisit it once I'm done combing the newsletters. If it's really unwieldy, I'll parse them out!
Perhaps, conversely, pages should be created for the pre-merger Aikawa elementary schools? There's no pressing need, I guess (the names don't go back that far in the ES's case). If I ever get around to it I'll make them, lol.
What would be really sweet is if we could find, either digital or physical, records of the local newspapers (Shuhoku, Hokuroku, etc). I'm sure they would be more meticulous with writing articles about ALTs of the day. The town newsletters are frustratingly hit-or-miss...! --SeanC (talk) 15:17, 15 March 2018 (JST)
