Fair use rationale for Image:ESU seal small.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ESU seal small.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. BetacommandBot (talk) 06:16, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Motto[edit]

Has ESU changes their motto? I know they've been using I'm A Hornet since March, and it was Changing Lives since 1863. I just want to know what others think. CorkythehornetfanTalk 04:51, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Some other editors get very picky about mottos, so make sure you find a reference to prove it, otherwise editors will remove mottos that don't have a ref. I recommend that you use "I'm A Hornet" instead of "I'M A HORNET.", because it isn't an official college thing or advertisement, instead this field is just information on Wikipedia. I rarely remove unref'ed mottos unless they sound fishy or bogus. • SbmeirowTalk • 01:23, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Alrighty, thanks! I'll change it to the suggestion you made and add the reference. CorkythehornetfanTalk 01:34, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Oldest public university in Kansas? | Cleaned up using AutoEd[edit]

I have brought this up before on K-State's talk page, but I'm still questioning as to whether K-State is the oldest university in Kansas. Emporia State University, founded in March 1863, I believe is the oldest institution under the "new" state. K-State was known as Blue Mont Central College, and was founded in 1858, before 1861 when Kansas became a state. BMCC was under the Kansas Territory, not the actual state. The Kansas Board of Regents history page has ESU as the first university in Kansas, followed by KU and then K-State, becoming the Agriculture College of Manhattan which is then governed by the state. A Kansas State Statue book, found on books.google.com, says the K-State was the 1st (Feb. 16, 1863), followed by KU (Feb. 20, 1863) and ESU (March 2, 1863). This history article states that KSU didn't become accepted until 1863, and states that KU became the 1st institution secured. I know ESU says that it wasn't established until March 1863, but why would the Board of Regents, the governing board of the universities say that ESU is the oldest? It just doesn't make since. I just want to know what others think. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 02:36, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
