If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

Please stop marking content-containing edits as "minor edits"[edit]

Please read Help:Minor edit and honor the points it makes. In short, "minor edits" should be limited to the very barest, least controversial changes, such as things like citation reformatting and spacing. Editors often automatically omit "minor edits" from their watchlists, marking an edit that contains even a modest content change as minor is seen by a large number of editors as "trying to sneak something by them", which is a particular problem for articles which are potentially controversial. Thanks !--je deckertalk 18:38, 21 June 2010 (UTC) PS: Sorry about stepping on your toes trying to put that info back. It's back in the location you put it in first. I did a tiny bit of cleanup to the citation format, but it's otherwise as you left it. --je deckertalk 18:44, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the nice note on my Talk page! Happy editing! --je deckertalk 17:29, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Help identifying BYU football coaches[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you made many edits on articles pertaining to BYU football and I was wondering if you could help me identify some of the coaches in this image. Thanks. Thomson (talk) 00:00, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. Do you think the fourth person from the left looks like Brandon Doman? Thomson (talk) 23:42, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
Also, here is another photo of BYU coaches I want you to help be identify. To me, it looks like the coach at the very left is either Kelly Poppinga or Ben Cahoon, the coach shouting resembles Lance Reynolds, the coach third from the left is Nick Howell and the coach at the very right is Brandon Doman.

Speedy deletion nomination of Wisconsin–River Falls Falcons women's ice hockey[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Wisconsin–River Falls Falcons women's ice hockey 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 an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that your page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Cobalion.

File permission problem with File:Mormon rap.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Mormon rap.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release 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}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File 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. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 19:46, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Decoding the Disciplines, a page you created has not been edited in at least 180 days. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace. If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it. You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

WP principles[edit]

The principles I was referring to do not concern editing nuts and bolts. They concern the overall goals and purpose of Wikipedia: 1. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a web page; 2. Information added to Wikipedia must have reliable sources; 3. Wikipedia is coherent, not a collection of randomly added information. What I've seen so far from your students is a lot of scattershot additions written in a chatty, editorial, verbose, unencyclopedic style.

Improving the UWRF article is a nice goal. Perhaps if your students first read the Wikipedia:College and university article guidelines, and then examined some featured and good university and college articles, they might get an idea of what constitutes quality encyclopedic content, writing, and organization. Other useful reading includes: Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not. It might also be useful for them to collaborate on an outline for the article and a plan for achieving improvements. (Collaboration is always a good skill to learn.) Their energy is welcome; to improve WP it just needs to be better channeled.

BTW, what is your goal for having them learn to edit Wikipedia? 71.139.148.177 (talk) 17:29, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

You might also want to talk with them about plagiarism and copyright violations. 70.235.84.123 (talk) 20:09, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on File:Ezekiel Ansah, football player for the Detroit Lions.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Regarding cut-and-paste move of Ryan Hamilton to Ryan Hamilton (ice hockey player)[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Ryan Hamilton a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen.
