Welcome to the Teahouse[edit]

Welcome to the Teahouse Ybidzian. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a message on my talk page. Happy editing! --Skamecrazy123 (talk) 12:00, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Hiya Skamecrazy123, thanks for the welcome. I do have a question, if you have a moment to answer it. To upload images of people, where do you find the proof that they are "in the public domain"? I used "inspect element" on a couple of pics and it actually states that they are open source, free use etc. Is this the kind of proof Wiki wants? I do not want to upload anything that would be unsuitable, so am treading cautiously here. Any info appreciated. Cheers. Yb.

This page should help you out, especially part 1.1 on determining copyright status. --Skamecrazy123 (talk) 23:56, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Academic journal articles[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you have created several articles on academic journals. Thanks, we can use more of those! However, I also noticed that you copy/pasted some text from the journals' websites and that is a violation of copyright. Such articles risk to get deleted on sight. Have a look at our journal article writing guide, which may give you some ideas on how to avert such problems (and also to flesh-out the articles a bit). Hope this helps. Happy editing! --Randykitty (talk) 12:26, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

The Cupola Endowed Chair[edit]

I wrote this article, and realized I had named it incorrectly. I asked for it to be removed under {{AfD}} but there is a huge backlog, so instead I wanted to redirect it to The Cupola Era Endowed Chair, which is the correct title. Instead that article accidentally redirected to The Cupola Endowed Chair. Since I had to rewrite parts of it anyway, I hoped to simply delete both and make a new article. Please overlook my error, I did not intend to break any Wiki rules. Could you delete both of them so I can re-do the article? Thanking you Ybidzian (talk) 19:33, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Ybidzian, There's a better way to fix this than AFD. I can move the page for you. What is the title you want it to be? --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:39, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

I've moved the page to the correct name. And it's not a fuss, don't worry about it. If there's any more loose ends related to this, let me know. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:44, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Henri Berestycki, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page CAMS (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.
