On moving a part of a page to a new page[edit]

Hi guys. I wanted some advice on the etiquette of moving a part of a page into a new article. Specifically, the section at Duke University about the rape scandal has grown way too large. Moreover, it has a lot of NPOV problems which will only continue since this is a current event. Both of these mean this section hurts the quality of the article overall without adding much to it. I would like to summarize the basic facts of the case and have most of the information on a separate page:

I placed a note on the talk page yesterday or the day before. (Two comments so far. One supportive from an IP address and another in disagreement from a new user.) Should I wait longer? I feel like the case is clear for moving it.

As for technical etiquette: Should I just copy and paste the information in, placing a note on both Talk pages about the move? (Is there anything to do about the histories? I don't think so, but just checking.)

This would be potentially my most controversial edit so far so I would like to make sure I do it right and polite.

Thanks! Anagrammarian 16:54, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello. That is a good idea you have. It is best not for the lacrosse scandal to overwhelm the Duke University article. The move can just be a copy and paste of the relevent material into the new article. Just mark in your edit summary that you are creating a new article from the Duke University article. The title should be as neutral as possible. I think Duke University lacrosse team scandal would be ideal, though others may disagree. You can move it to that now and if others disagree, consensus can be reached on the talk page and a new title can be created if needed. If anyone disagrees with your move, it can be reverted quite easily. Wikipedia encourages editors to be bold. Pepsidrinka 17:05, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

This is Moe[edit]

Hello Anagrammarian, just thought I would let you know that I was leaving Wikipedia, but before I left, I finally got a picture of thyself of onto Wikipedia. (I know great timing for me to post a picture of myself, right?) This is my final gift to my friends. Later! PS. Try not to laugh to hard at my ugly mug ok? Moe ε 14:58, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Speed scrabble page[edit]

Hey, noticed that you had the Speed scrabble page on your "To Do" list; I've redirected that page to Scrabble variants, mostly because both Stefan Fatsis (in Word Freak) and NSA Webmaster John Chew (on his personal website) both refer to "Speed Scrabble" as a Scrabble variant completely different to the one listed in the former article.

Fair use rationale for Image:Anagrams-embossco-redbox.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Anagrams-embossco-redbox.jpg. 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. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

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 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 '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 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. ShakespeareFan00 13:38, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Anagrams-embossco-redbox.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Anagrams-embossco-redbox.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 00:07, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
