Emporia State University[edit]

Hi. Your ESU alumni list has gotten to the point that you need to split it off into its own article. See the following colleges as examples. I split the WSU article a while back because of the same reason. • SbmeirowTalk • 21:19, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I am working on that now! One quick question... There are many names they had posted that aren't on Wikipedia. Do I leave the brackets on those names or do I take them off? Thanks again! Corkythehornetfan (Talk) (Contributions) 22:01, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
I use to wikilink everyone, but I've moved to wikilink only people who have an article. The reason that I've moved from wikilinking people who don't have an article is that it sometimes seems to be a target of "delete happy" editors that delete everything red, which is wrong. As long as each person meets WP:BIO and each non-wikilinked name has a reference then that person should be safe. • SbmeirowTalk • 23:32, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I decided not to link the names that don't have an article on here, just to be safe. If other users would like them to be linked, then they can link them! Thanks again for your help! Corkythehornetfan (Talk) (Contributions) 00:014, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Question about recent edit to Brown Mackie College[edit]

Hi Corky, I have a quick request for you related to your recent edits to the Brown Mackie College article. First though, I am a paid consultant to Education Management Corporation (EDMC), Brown Mackie College's parent company, and have helped to improve this article with the assistance of other editors. Because of my relationship to EDMC I have not made any direct edits to the article, but have instead worked with other editors via Talk pages. This is why I am asking you about making this change, as opposed to making it myself.

I noticed the new section you added about the school's athletics program at the school's Salina location. The title of this section is currently Brown Mackie-Salina Athletics but I'm wondering if you would be willing to update it to Brown Mackie College-Salina athletics (rather than Brown Mackie-Salina Athletics) so that the school's full name is used and so that the section heading appears in sentence case, as is standard on Wikipedia. Would you be willing to make this change? Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 20:14, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Changed! Corkythehornetfan (talk) 20:46, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you!! Also, I just saw the South University logo note on my user Talk and replied there. I think since you've replaced the file in the article with a .png version, it's probably best just to let the .jpg I'd uploaded get deleted. But let me know if there's something else we could do with it... Thanks again, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:08, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Question about edit to Friends University infobox.[edit]

Corky, I noticed your recent update to the Friends University infobox and including administration. First, thank you for making updates to the page. Some of the titles do not accurately match their official title and in some cases may be a bit misleading, specifically the title of dean. Carole Obermeyer serves as the Vice President of Student Affairs, not in the role of dean. The University has three deans over the three colleges, who report to the Vice President of Academic Affairs, currently listed as provost. What are your thoughts on removing some of the administration from this block or changing them to accurately representing their official title/role? Thanks! R. D. Rodriguez (talk) 22:32, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

R. D., when I edited the article last, the names were not showing up in the infobox. So, I placed them in a slot. I placed the VP of Academic Affairs as Provost, based off of what ESU calls their VP for Academic Affairs. (Yes, I realize that every school is different.) I say lets change them to accurately represent their official title and/or role. I could do that if you'd like, or you can, it doesn't matter to me. I hope you see why I did it. Thanks! Corkythehornetfan (talk) 23:21, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Corky, absolutely! I realize each place is different but thank you for working on adding the information! I believe you have more experience editing in the infobox, so I'll let you make the changes. I'm not sure how well they will fit, so perhaps abbreviating Vice President to VP would be good. They are: VP of Academic Affairs - Dr. Darcy Zabel; VP of Administration and Finance - Randy Doerksen; VP of Institutional Advancement - Tracy Muirhead; VP of Student Affairs - Dr. Carole Obermeyer. If you want the deans of the college, they are: Dean of the College of Business, Arts, Sciences and Education - Dr. Steve Peters; Dean of the College of Adult and Professional Studies - Dr. Jo Lobertini; Dean of the Graduate School - Dr. David Hofmeister. Thanks so much for making this Wikipedia page and other pages more robust and accurate! R. D. Rodriguez (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 18:16, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia Service Award[edit]

This editor is a Yeoman Editor and is entitled to display this Service Badge.

In case you aren't aware of the Wikipedia Service Awards, I guessed at your award level by looking at the table in this "wikipedia:service awards" article, "your total edits", and "how long you've had an account". To determine your service award, you must be greater or equal to the values in both columns. Currently I have enough edits to be 3 awards higher, but unfortunately my account age prevents me. As your edits increase and time ticks along, it's your responsibility to bump up your award. I put 2 of the more popular methods to show your award in this section, so pick one of them. To tweak the award parameters, see Template:Yeoman Editor or Template:Yeoman Editor Userbox. Note: You can delete this section at any time. • SbmeirowTalk • 01:00, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I wasn't aware of it. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 03:49, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Mike King[edit]

Hi Corky--

I was hoping you could help me with a page title change on the Mike King page. He would like it to not say, Kansas politician, and just have it be Mike King. Is this possible? Or what do I need to do to make these changes? Thanks AnnWilliamson (talk) 16:22, 22 January 2014 (UTC) AnnWilliamson

Mike King article is already taken, plus his article should have a similar naming format as others on that page. • SbmeirowTalk • 22:07, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Ann, the reason the creator titled it Mike King (Kansas politician) is because Mike King is already taken, like Sbmeirow said. Links that are WP:Disambiguated, like Mike King, the name usually has parenthesis. (That way, it directs to a specific person.) If Mr. King doesn't want (Kansas politician) after his name, the only other choice would be "politician", so it would look like other politician articles. I see that you moved hime to Mike King (Transportation Executive). That looks better. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 22:54, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Your report here seems to list old diffs rather than the most recent. Flat Out let's discuss it 03:37, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I used the tool server thing to help, and that is what it gave me. I didn't even bother to check them either. I've changed them to the ones of the IP user I am requesting being blocked. Let me know if I need to change those, or what else I need to do. Thanks, again. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 03:45, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
That's better but you only listed 3, did they break the 3 revert rule? Flat Out let's discuss it 03:47, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, they did. After I reverted it three times, I stopped. Then, Jim1138 stepped in and reverted the IP's edits. After him it was the new IP address, which I believe is the same person as the 1st IP address. Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 03:50, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
List diffs for all reverts (including manual reverts) in the last 24 hours. Flat Out let's discuss it 03:54, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
I have listed a total of 9 diffs from the IP user, which were all of their reverts in the past 24 hours. Hopefully that is enough. Thanks for your help! Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 04:15, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

.jpg to .png[edit]

Hi, thanks for changing the Armed Forces Bowl logo for me. I also uploaded 2 other bowl logos this past week, the Independence Bowl and the Gator Bowl. They're also .jpg's. Can you also make them .png for me? Thanks.. Roberto221 (talk) 03:48, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Done! Here they are: Corkythehornetfan(talk) 12:59, 4 March 2014 (UTC)


Thank You for Updating the WTAE-TV Page for me to a cleaner and more updated logo. It Looks better then where I was able to get it. Bbabybear02 (talk) 19:17, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

No problem! Corkythehornetfan(talk) 21:25, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Graceland University word mark.gif[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Graceland University word mark.gif. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:06, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

The Shoji Tabuchi Show[edit]

Hi, Corkythehornetfan. I believe the edit to the Shoji Tabuchi page concerning the appearance of the show on RedLetterMedia's segment is a valid one. RedLetterMedia has millions of online viewers, and the Shoji Tabuchi show has frequently been mentioned on their show, and was the subject of an entire broadcast. I don't believe that your reasoning for removing the edit "don't need," is a valid reason for removing it. Please explain further why you don't believe it's relevant that the Shoji Tabuchi show was mentioned multiple times on one of the web's most popular series. Son of Lunger (talk) 19:59, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Sorry I removed it. I didn't look at the reference and jus reading it, thought maybe it was unnecessary. But since I look at it, it looks good. Sorry for removing it. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 02:05, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

No problem! I just thought it was relevant, as it may be the way many people heard about Shoji Tabuchi for the first time. Thanks! Son of Lunger (talk) 04:16, 12 March 2014 (UTC)


I beg to differ, but the logo from the 2010 NCAA Women's Final Four's logo is being used in that article. Therefore, I object to its' removal. NoseNuggets (talk) 4:35 PM US EDT March 14, 2014 (aka "Pi Day").

The .PNG logo is being used, but not the .JPG. The new logo I put in is transparent. If you'd actually look, there is a difference! Therefore, the .jpg file will be deleted, which is the one that is orphaned. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 20:50, 14 March 2014 (UTC)


Here's an old book for you: • SbmeirowTalk • 23:06, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Very interesting! Thanks! Corkythehornetfan(talk) 02:01, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

WTAE-TV Logo Information[edit]

Please, see this page on the WTAE-TV website because it seems to advertise this logo as the current logo of the TV station (see this link). The Twitter page for WTAE-TV also seems to advertise this logo as well. Also, see this page, too (which is home to this link). Of course, I might be wrong. I'm not from the area the station serves so I don't know exactly what their current logo is. For this reason, I'm not gonna upload any new versions of the logo; instead, I'm gonna leave it up to you to upload the logo. I'm providing you the link to the best copy of the other logo and will leave it entirely up to you to, if you decide to use upload it, remove the white background and shrink it to the proper size. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that so long as multiplying the length times the width (in pixels) equals 160,000 pixels or less, the image would not be too big. You seem to know your stuff about WTAE-TV, as you've been the uploader of all but one version of the logo for the station. I also don't know how to remove select background but, rather, I know only how to remove entirely ALL of one particular color from an image. How to remove only certain occurrences of white from an image, for example, is something I don't yet know how to do. That's another reason why I cannot upload the image myself. DizzyMosquitoRadio99 (talk) 18:00, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

I have contacted the station to see if they could e-mail the correct logo. I was just using the Facebook logo because it seems as if most stations have changed it to that. I don't live in the WTAE-TV area, nor do I know much about WTAE-TV. I was just going off their Facebook page, as most stations use their current logo as their profile picture. When I get the correct logo, I'll make sure it is reduced and transparent. I'm sorry if I have made people not happy, but it is what it is. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 22:22, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Do not worry, Corkythehornetfan(talk), about whether or not you've made me "unhappy" at all. A.) You have NOT made me "Unhappy," in the very slightest. If anything, you've just made me confused and B.) As Wikipedia editors, it is sort of our jobs and oaths to be "civil" (and, nonetheless, "professional") with one another. Right from the very moment I've first composed that message to you, I feared that the civility of my attempted tone of that message would get lost in translation, as text doesn't always do a very good job at conveying the mood(s) and emotion(s) of the composer of the message. I assure you that I want the exact same thing that you do and that's for the WTAE-TV logo featured in the corresponding article to that station to be the most up-to-date version. Good luck in your quest of finding out what the correct logo is for that station. Hey, while you're at it, maybe you could even E-Mail WTAE-TV once more, this time requesting that THEY upload their logo to their Wikipedia article. Of course I'm not exactly sure how Wikipedia's Non-Free policies work but I could very easily imagine that if somebody from WTAE-TV were to upload the logo to their Wikipedia article, maybe the Copyright and Size Reducing rules could be waived for them? Of course, this is only an idea though. I never really attempted contacting a TV/Radio Station to ask them about uploading a logo to Wikipedia; although, I've always been tempted to. View This Logo Here ("Uploaded by promotional/marketing director" for Saga Communications of Manchester, New Hampshire) and you will see a perfect example of a TV/Radio Logo uploaded to Wikipedia directly from a Station Staff Member. Pretty Interesting Stuff, Aye?

DizzyMosquitoRadio99 (talk) 04:00, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

I live in the WTAE-TV viewing area and the one with the New ABC logo is the correct one and is promoted on the station itself. The logos in the other sites are outdated. Bbabybear02 (talk) 23:37, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good! I am going to upload the photo you uploaded, but transparent and cropped to the old logo. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 23:47, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank You. It Should look better that way. Bbabybear02 (talk) 23:54, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

File:North Dakota State Bison Wordmark.png[edit]

Better? If not, will you change it? Thanks. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 21:26, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Admin barnstar[edit]

Thanks very much! I think that the deletion of old revisions is much simpler than editing the images (adding transparancy, resizing etc.) as you do. I just mop up the left-overs, but thanks again, it's nice to get noticed. James086Talk 03:16, 30 March 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for your productive revision of the 2015 Final Four logo. I could not help but notice that your revision made the logo opaque. I can tell because the logo does not have the checkerboard background that represents the transparent background. Since all logos are supposed to be transparent, I recommend that you fix this so this logo applies to how a logo should appear on Wikipedia. In simpler terms, please get rid of the white background in the logo. Additionally, I would appreciate it if you did not respond in ALL CAPS. Thank you. Albino Geronimo (talk) 04:53, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Sorry! I forgot to turn off the caps. The image is transparent because the checkerboard background shows up when you hover over it. It also shows that the image has no background when you go to the Article. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 11:38, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rugby (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

WTAE-TV Logo: You're Correct[edit]

Yes, the logo you've provided is the correct logo. I noticed the other day that ABC doesn't gloss their logo as much as they used to. I find it very irritating that people want the logos to be displayed at such a small size but I guess so long as the full-size version can always be accessed through a provided link, the small display size is something people will have to live with.

Request reason:

I was trying to report that IP address because they were vandalizing some articles. I had warned them, but they didn't listen. I then tried to report them to administrators, but apparently I didn't do that correct. I used twinkle, and though that the IP was sockpuppeting, so that is what I chose to block him. I reverted the edits made by the IP address because they were putting in time slots for syndicated TV shows on news station articles, and I know that they aren't allowed on Wikipedia. I have those articles in my watchlist because I have edited the pages before. Also, I do not operate, nor have I ever created any other account here on Wikipedia besides this one. I have never even heard of Joeyjoejoeman, until this incident. Please do not mistake me for him, because I am not. I have been on editing Wikipedia since June 2012, and I do everything I am suppose to. I think I also have a pretty good record, or log. I also think you guys should investigate some more before you go and accuse someone of being another user that is blocked. If the IP comes back to me, then it is shared. I live in Kansas and based on his history of his user page, it looks like he is Italian. If I do something wrong, then someone lets me know, and I don't do it again. I did revert most of their edits, but most were on different pages. If I revert something, it is usually because it is vandalism, or it is unsourced. I enjoy editing Wikipedia, mostly because it is fun! I would love to keep editing. Corkythehornetfan(talk) 21:07, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
