In response to your message[edit]

Hi Stagophile

The University is very pleased and impressed with the wiki. Thank you so much for all your hard work and diligence. You've done your alma mater proud. Many of our URLs have changed since the recent launch of our new website, so I updated the links on the page, but nothing else was changed. What's missing from the page? Nothing comes to mind - you're thorough. But please keep in touch - we'd be happy to share with you any new initiatives that could supplement the article. And if you're ever on campus, stop by the Web Communications department in Bellarmine. We'd love to meet you.

(by the way, not sure how to respond to user:talk, so I hope this is right...)

thanks again Laura Lauraj515 (talk) 20:24, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Fairfield University[edit]

Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to Fairfield University. Blank pages are harmful to Wikipedia because they have a tendency to confuse readers. If it is a duplicate article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalised, please revert it to the last legitimate version. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please edit the page and replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please see the deletion policy for how to proceed. Thanks for contributing to Wikipedia! -- Merope 15:34, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Please do not replace Wikipedia pages or sections with blank content. It is considered vandalism. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. Thanks. -- Merope 15:40, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Response to your message[edit]

I am reversing your contributions because you keep deleting the entire section on Athletics in the Fairfield University article. (See: [1]). Removing content from articles without explanation is considered vandalism. -- Merope 15:53, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


Are you serious? You had pics blocking text boxes and covering up other pics. I only removed one small picture and moved two so they would not block the text that you have been working so hard on writing. you need to take a look at formatting styles and possibly consider removing some pics. sometimes less is more Trey 03:54, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Meredith Wallace[edit]

Hi Stagophile, I wanted to alert you regarding the status of an article you created. A tag has been placed on Meredith Wallace, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be a biographical account about a person, group of people, or band, but it does not indicate how or why he/she/they is/are notable. If you can indicate why Meredith Wallace is really notable, I advise you to edit the article promptly, and also put a note on Talk:Meredith Wallace. Any admin should check for such edits before deleting the article. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles. You might also want to read our general biography criteria. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that admins should wait a while for you to assert his/her/their notability, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and then immediately add such an assertion. It is also a very good idea to add citations from reliable sources to ensure that your article will be verifiable. I added a stub tag and category to the article, but this alone will not be sufficient to alleviate its deletion. Additional improvement will be needed. Accurizer 16:06, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Response to Merope[edit]

I am not deleting the Athletics section. If you had scrolled down, you would have seen that I was rearranged the section and put the Athletics section at the end.


Image:Fairfield Donnarumma.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fairfield Donnarumma.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --– Quadell (talk) (random) 18:24, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Fairfield Seal Red.JPG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fairfield Seal Red.JPG. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) (random) 18:29, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Fairfield Bellarmine.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fairfield Bellarmine.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Please do not upload still images in the GIF format[edit]

Hello and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that you've uploaded a number of still images in the GIF format. In the future, please save GIF images in the PNG format before uploading (see Wikipedia:Preparing images for upload). PNG images almost always have a smaller file size, which decreases the amount of time they take to load. There are a bunch of other advantages to the PNG format such as lossless compression that you can read about on its Wikipedia article. —Remember the dot (t) 20:37, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

please add articles so they will stay[edit]

or you are wasting your time & that of others.

Novotny seems a worthy subject for an article, but if you would like the article to remain you must write it in the WP style, which includes:

  • looking like an encyclopedia article not a CV (use asterisks for lists, just as I did)
  • saying in the first sentence something to demonstrate notability, like professor of X at, winner of the XYZ prize and N honorary doctorate (whatever applies). Use the exact word: "notable"; do not use "famous"
  • not going into disproportionate personal details
  • listing college degrees with university and year -- and putting the university names in double brackets
  • listing important awards
  • listing important memberships and offices held
  • listing books published as formal references style: Author, title, Publisher, year ISBN if possible.
  • listing some major published papers, say how many.

and, most important, giving some 3rd party sources. A website at a university etc. can be one, but it cannot be the only one. Book reviews are fine, or a newspaper stories. Print or web is OK, but not from a list or a blog. These is unfortunately, prejudice against people from the academic world. Look at similar articles.

If you do not do this immediately, the article will probably be deleted in a day or two--though not by me. I apologize for not having the time to help you personally. DGG 05:43, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Fairfield Men's Ensemble.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Fairfield Men's Ensemble.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 02:41, 1 March 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fang Aili talk 02:41, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Fairfield University Template[edit]

The image in the template that you erased was a logo and not fair use image that I enhanced in paintbrush. I did this in the same manner as done on the Duke template. Please help me understand the difference. I really get frustrated when I spend a considerable amount of time creating content and then others swoop in and just erase everything that I have done. (Stagophile 03:36, 1 March 2007 (UTC)).

Unfortunately, logos (at least those that use the {{logo}} tag, are fair use images. Wikipedia:Fair use, under "policy", says Fair use images may be used only in the article namespace. Used outside article space, they are not covered under the fair use doctrine. They should never be used on templates (including stub templates and navigation boxes) or on user pages. I know it's a bummer, but it's the way it is. Cheers, Fang Aili talk 15:08, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Copyvio issues[edit]

The best way I know to avoid having articles deleted as copyvios is not to use "copy" and "paste". When a writer starts with someone else's words, the writer usually ends up with someone else's words. Try reviewing the sources, making notes or an outline (not complete sentences), and then writing in your own words. That usually does the trick. Good luck! -- But|seriously|folks  23:23, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Absolutely -- I'll email the markup text to you so you can straighten them out. Thanks and happy editing! -- But|seriously|folks  02:30, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:The_Alternate_Routes.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:The_Alternate_Routes.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information.

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Stags In The Stands.PNG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 01:19, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:BluefishonWVOF.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:BluefishonWVOF.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Speedy deletion of Image:Fairfield Postcard.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Fairfield Postcard.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Fairfield Postcard.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. kevMAC (talk) 16:31, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Fairfield Shield.PNG. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Speedy deletion of Fairfield Mirror - Past Editorial Staffs[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Fairfield Mirror - Past Editorial Staffs requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Canis Lupus 22:55, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Kevin J. Kelleher[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Kevin J. Kelleher requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Andante1980 (talk) 14:37, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Lt. Hans Grauert Field.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Lt. Hans Grauert Field.PNG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:14, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Carmen Wong Ulrich.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Carmen Wong Ulrich.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? J Milburn (talk) 11:55, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

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) 17:48, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Stagophile (talk) 00:09, 30 July 2010 (UTC)==File permission problem with File:James Abbruzzese.jpg==

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:James Abbruzzese.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 16:14, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Per the email I submitted, Mr. Abbruzzee gave me permission to use his picture himself through the Lustgarten Foundation. What copyright should I use? Stagophile (talk) 00:09, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I think the problem is that it must be the copyright holder who submits the photo and gives permission. The owner must also verify he's the owner by e-mailing from a @whatever.com that is associated with the organization that created the image. Moreover, the owner usually has to basically give up ownership of the image in order for it to be used on Wikipedia since there is a policy of this being a "free encyclopedia." You can read more in the page about using non-free content. Hope this helps, though I warn you that I'm a bit confused myself! Codehydro (talk) 15:18, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Template:User Fairfield[edit]

I added all sorts of new parameters to Template:User Fairfield. You may want to check them out ;) I think you sound like a "red" ;) —CodeHydro 03:20, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Nicely done...thanks! Stagophile (talk) 02:15, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

List of Fairfield University people[edit]

Hello Stagophile, I'm sure you've noticed my purge on this list. Please be aware that I've done this for UConn, Yale and every other college within CT and that I don't mean it as any sort of slight on Fairfield Univerisity. As you know, without a citation (or at least a wikipage) it's impossible to confirm that someone attended an institution. I also wanted to say thank you for all the work you've done with the various FFLD U articles, and invite you to join the Wikipedia:WikiProject Connecticut.

Fair use rationale for File:Fairfield WVOF.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Fairfield WVOF.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 04:11, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Matt Leonard[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Matt Leonard has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article makes no claim of notability for this coach. Note that he has a day job.

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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} 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.

I am so sick and tired of everybody deleting what I have created. Stagophile (talk) 13:09, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Pat Jordan (author)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Pat Jordan (author), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.patjordanstories.com/about.asp.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 02:14, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

New Fairfield Photos[edit]

I finally got around to uploading a bunch of Fairfield U photos that you requested back in September. Sorry it too so long. I visited the campus twice, first in January and again in April.

You can see the photos at my Commons gallery. (PS: Please archive part of your talk page; it's so big it lags up my computer when it loads) —CodeHydro 15:21, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Alumni[edit]

Hi Stagophile, I notice that there's a bit of duplication between Fairfield University Dolan School of Business and List of Fairfield University people. Normal practice is to refernce the other list(s) instead of have mulitple entries for the same person (ie: did Peter J. McDonald graduate from both the Business school & the University?).
