How about removing the discussion about the english name of DIKU? At the very least remove it from the first section of the article, which should IMO be reserved for more generel info. The english name used on DIKU's homepage is "Department of Computer Science", so clearly that is the name we should use. It is mentioned that the name have been debated. Is that a generel Danish-English translation debate (1), or is it specific to DIKU (2)? In the (1) case we should definently remove it, in the (2) case we might keep a note further down in the article.

I am just going to remove the fact that computer science shares links with mathematics. The discussion or statement of that fact belongs in the article about computer science.

On January 15, 2006, user:Ceyockey recommended merging Bioinformatics Centre, a department in the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Science back with the main page. I decided to nominate merging all the other sub-departments back into the main article, as they are all stubs, and none of them, with the possible exception of the Niels Bohr institute, assert independent notability. They also don't have any incoming links except from the University of Copenhangen wiki articles. The only comment was from the author of the pages, who objected. I don't really care enough to force the issue, so I'm going to remove all the merge tags and let someone else deal with it in the future if someone comes along who cares more than I do.

Fair use rationale for Image:DIKU logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DIKU logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation 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.BetacommandBot 23:01, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
