Stop Vandalizing this page. It is against Wikipedia's policy —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Alexdragon (talkcontribs) 18:03, 25 January 2007 (UTC).

Here's what I think is another case of vandalism: There was an uncited assertion that the name "Sun Devils" came from someone named Ryan Drost from Connecticut. This was posted by someone with an IP address that traces to Amherst College. Not surprisingly, it turns out that there is a student from Connecticut at Amherst named Ryan Drost. This seems pretty suspicious to me.Rppeabody (talk) 02:34, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Sparky.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sparky.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Keep it NPOV.[edit]

"A strong academic and athletic rivalry exists between the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, though the University of Arizona has a good academic standing, they cannot match up with the Barrett Honors College and other prestigious programs that ASU offers."

Someone should change this. I'm too lazy though. (talk) 03:39, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
