St. Louis Aldermen[edit]

I've just started map work on Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Louis and the articles for each ward. Putting the proper wards on the proper neighborhood pages is going to take a while, but do you have any thoughts on how we should lay out the ward pages? I'm not sure what kind of infobox template to use or really what kind of information should be there that isn't on the individual neighborhood pages. Thoughts?

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:54, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:NU seal.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:NU seal.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Connormah 17:01, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Illinois[edit]

I don't want to mess with it while you're actively working on it (if I stick my hand in at the same time it'll just get worse), but had you noticed that you've edited the opening sentence into not actually being a sentence at all? Look, it's a fragment now. HuskyHuskie (talk) 06:46, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead and change it. I just want to cut out unnecessary words. Openings should be brief summaries, and this one seems to long Astuishin (talk) 06:50, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, the opening sentence is now actually a sentence. But I made other changes as well, so you may want to give it another lookover. HuskyHuskie (talk) 18:22, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Cook College and Theological School[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Cook College and Theological School has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unable to find evidence that this place exists. Accreditation link is broken, website describes a ministry program offering workshops. Google search shows lots of reference to "Cook College" in Tempe, AZ; however, all links to it are broken or outdated. Since article had no refs to begin with, I suggest deleting.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Nicktalk 17:50, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

RE: Disputed non-free use rationale for File:New York Times front page, September 29, 2010.jpg[edit]

Hi,

I realize that the 1914 WWI image is in the public domain, as by definition are all the covers of the NYT from that period (they are at http://www.nytimes.com/onthisday/), but I don't feel that counts as a replacement for a modern-day image. Unlike a photograph of a building or location that could easily be replaced with a free content version, there are no public domain versions of a modern NYT front page available. This seems to be the standard used for other similar newspaper cover images; the London Times, for instance, was founded in 1785, so clearly a public domain cover is available, but instead a fair use cover from August 25 of this year is used in the article's infobox. The other reason for replacing the WWI cover was that it related to a specific major news story, like the fair use 9/12/01 cover it was briefly replaced with, and in the discussion on the talk page we thought a more typical cover was better suited. A lot of newspapers for smaller cities and towns in the US have images from the Shuttle return to flight mission in 2005 as the fair use covers used in the infoboxes on their articles, which was a large news story at the time but in contrast to 9/11 and WWI was relatively short-term.
