This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Sorry I have to say I am finding difficulty in inserting photographs into this site. The Wikipedia guidance doesn't make it very clear to me.

I have a lovely photograph of Parkers Piece Pavilion taken in 2011 and also one of the very old boat-house used by both the Derby School Rowing Club and the Derby Rowing Club. Can anyone advice me please? jbhygieneJbhygiene (talk) 19:23, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi there! If you want to put images in an article they must be uploaded first. You can upload them to our image repository, Commons. There is an upload wizard located here. Please read everything in the wizard very carefully. The image(s) must comply with our copyright policy. If they don't, they will likely be deleted. If you have any further questions, you can ask me on my talk page, or here, whichever you prefer. Regards, OohBunnies! Leave a message 19:48, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Mistakes made in updating St. Helen's House, Derby page[edit]

Thank you for the suggestions. As you said this was made by mistake and I do hope this now reads correctly without going against Wikipedias styles.Jbhygiene (talk) 12:14, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Quotations[edit]

I have fixed a lot of your errors, and explained these corrections in comments or on the article's talk pgae. I must insist that you not keep making the same mistakes. Wikipedia articles follow WP:Wikipedia style, not your style.

Wikipedia:MOSQUOTE#Italics is clear:

Quotations in italics
For quotations, use only quotation marks (for short quotations) or block quoting (for long ones), not italics. (See Quotations below.) This means that (1) a quotation is not italicized inside quotation marks or a block quote just because it is a quotation, and (2) italics are no substitute for proper quotation formatting. One way to distinguish long block quotes from ordinary text is to use {{quotation}}, which will box the text. Citation links may not work within such templates; if so, it may be necessary to use <blockquote> and </blockquote>.

Please go back and fix your mistakes. Thank you. Ground Zero | t 14:25, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Edits[edit]

In this edit, you used boldfacing where there was no reason, and italics on a quotation. Please stop doing this. The Wikipedia community has established a Manual of Style to help readers through more consistent formatting. individula contributors must not try to impose their formatting preferences over the decisions made by the community.
