Old Roll Calls and Profiles and Results

Recommended Posts

These links are now non-operational due to changes in the url system here at urch.

 

To get them to work, for profiles and results 2014 for example, after you click on it, go to the address bar and delete everything from the beginning of the address to the exclamation symbol, so you delete "http://www.www.urch.com/forums/!151427!" and then it should work.

I don't know if I or anyone else will have the energy to put it together, but a new econphd.net type of wiki/site which consolidates a lot of the information laid down in threads here would improve things a lot not just on the board, in taking care of the repeating of basic advice over and over again, but also potentially give people a much more comprehensive outlay of information.

Phdeconomics.com would be ideal.

Sure. I was saying that there used to be a site at econphd.net that had lots of information consolidated in one place. Phdeconomics.com is taken. On the wiki idea -- I just read a soc/networks paper on open source software, and against the idea that these are hippy paradises of egalitarianism -- contribution to projects follows a power law distribution just like any other hierarchy. That tells me even if a open-forum collaborative summary of www.urch.com information got made, it would require leadership.

econwiki.com is hosted/run by an old member of this site (buckykatt). The wiki at econsource.org fell apart, but econphd.econwiki.com (which I run) still exists as a mirror of econphd.net. My work aggregating roll call, admissions and rejections, and profiles and results is still there, too. The 2010 results mathemagician posted links to some pages of results which were lost in an outage.

 

As far as summaries of TM information, beyond the aggregate profiles and results, its tricky. There is a lot of information in the stickies different people have put together, and more will be added as people see the need. I should update econphd.econwiki.com with more up-to-date stuff, though, you are right. Let me know if you have any ideas. This winter I'll update my aggregate profiles, results, etc script to be able to handle the new GRE scores.

It's tough to make critical suggestions to someone whose gone out of their way to do so much work, uncompensated. The profiles people post, even though standardized, are still extremely variable and granular. I wonder if there's a way to collapse the information into more efficient aggregates. I had trouble reading off trends from the formatting.

I can no longer edit the original post in this thread (I imagine there is some time limit that we have run afoul of).
