Changes made by Tiddly Tom 26/7/07[edit]

Hi. I have changed some of the formatting of the article to be more wikipedia like. Included in this I have removed phone number and email address. This is not because I do not want people to support you, but it is a prime target for vandalism, and can be easily accessed by your website. If you have any queries about what I have done or would like any more help, please feel free to leave them on this page, or my talk page. Tiddly Tom 17:35, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Edits by Act4addenbrookes 27/12/07[edit]

Copied to users talk page
The recent edits did the following things:

  • Removed Content
  • Removed a reference
  • Added in an image which in the past was deleted due to copyright, and at this moment the image is tagged for copyright issues.

Therefore I have reverted the changes and would urge the user to post here before undoing my edit. Thank you, Tiddly-Tom 11:22, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for your message, I didn't realise this would be a problem, because the information added on the Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust page by Remember A Charity is incorrect, and I thought anyone could make edits to Wikipedia particularly the article creator.
The incorrect bit is that Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust was not established in 1987. The proactive fundraising office for Addenbrooke's was established in 1997 called Fund for Addenbrooke's and became known as Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust in 2007. This is a bit complicated so at the very least the date needs to be changed to say 1997.
Also, the logo was designed for the charity by a company we retain, and the copyright sits with us, how do I go about being able to post in on Wikipedia?
Many thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.176.105.40 (talk) 09:20, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Having correct information on Wikipedia is vital, false information should be removed. Another important thing is that information on articles is verifiable by use of reliable sources, preferably 3rd party (independent of the subject of the article). After writing all of that, it was my fault it said 1987! I was the person who added that and it must have been a typo. I have corrected the error.
As for the logo. I think it would be useful to read Wikipedia:Logos and do as described on that page. If this does not work, we could try this route.
I presume that you work for Addenbrooke's Hospital? If this is the case it would be worth reading Wikipedia:Conflict of interest before making further edits. I don't know if you can or not, but it would be useful if the Charity's website was changed to somewhere say something about the name changes in the past. This allows easy verification of the information.
Feel free to contact me here or on my talk page if I can be of any help. Tiddly-Tom 10:04, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Hi again. I found this, a way we could use the picture; if your people agreed. Tell me what you think. Tiddly-Tom 12:08, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi Tom, I actually work for the charity, which is a separate organisation from the hospital. But our job is to raise money for the hospital, so we work very closely with them (and incidentally are based in the same location).

We have just updated the charity's website and in its 'About Us' section it does mention the name changes.

Thanks for the link to the 'verifable' info. I thought that the Addenbrooke's Hospital page would be fine for third party verifying. Here is the charity page on their website: http://www.addenbrookes.org.uk/serv/nonclin/fundraise/act.html

I will try and include the logo with the fair use rationale. Please let me know if I've done it wrong! This Wikipedia thing is more complicated than I expected!

The Addenbrookes website is not a true third party resources as the two are closely linked. The Fair Use Rational looks good on the image. The think that we should be looking at doing for the article is expansion, including citation. Has ACT been in any newspapers - such as the Cambridge Evening News? These would be great third party references. Tiddly-Tom 18:06, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
