Fair use rationale for Image:UAB blaze.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:UAB blaze.jpg 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.

UAB Civitan International Research Center[edit]

Lately I've been expanding articles about Civitan International, a nonprofit group with a focus on helping people with developmental disabilities. Civitan's flagship project is funding the Civitan International Research Center at UAB. I had considered creating a page for it, as it is one of UAB's more important research centers, but then I saw this page which lists more than 100 specialized centers at UAB. Given that there are that many, I see three options:

  1. Creating pages about the most important ones.
  2. Mentioning some of the more important ones in the UAB article.
  3. Mentioning the centers under other articles about the people that support them (ex: mentioning the Civitan International Research Center and its developmental disability research under the Civitan International article)

Does anyone have any suggestions on which course to take? SU Linguist (talk) 14:19, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

There are LOTS of centers at UAB, and some are bigger than others, for example the Comprehensive Cancer Center is probably the biggest in terms of budget and faculty. CIRC is probably very close behind. You might create a page about the important ones, like the CIRC and the CCC, but I'd also mention those along with some of the smaller but important ones on the UAB article. You might also mention them in their main articles. So, I guess I'm suggesting a hybrid of all three of your proposals :) jblake 21:58, 12 June 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jblake (talkcontribs)

Merger[edit]

The information on the new Tower from this short stub article should be merged into the main article. Agreed? NJA (t/c) 11:33, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Support I see no reason it should stand alone. LilHelpa (talk) 14:06, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak keep, also I note that the article was created by a frequent spammer and vandal.username 1 (talk) 21:55, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Bold text in intro paragraph?[edit]

It doesn't seem appropriate to me that various parts of the intro paragraph other than the name itself are bolded. Nave.notnilc (talk) 02:38, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
