Intro[edit]

Success You did your intro correctly. Let me know if I can help you. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 16:47, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

A userbox[edit]

User:Koavf/Userboxes/Litbox You may have noticed this rectangle has been placed on your userpage:

Open book 01.svg
IUPUI coursepage for Adolescent Lit

This is called a userbox and there are a variety of them that you can add to your userpage to express your interests, political values, dietary preferences, etc. You are not required to have one and there is virtually no limit to how many you can have.

I have placed this on your userpage because your instructor has informed me that some of you have had difficulty remembering or finding your coursepage. This link will be right here on your userpage unless you decide to remove it (which you can do at any time.) If you ever forget how to get to your class resources, just click on your username up in the top-right of the screen and you'll be just one more click away.

If you need to reach me (one of your two Campus Ambassadors), my contact information is here: User:Koavf/CA.

Please remember to pace yourself and be aware that 90% of writing a good article is well-formed prose and citing your sources. Anything extraneous or technical is where I can be of assistance. (And if you need help editing your prose or finding sources, I can try to give a hand there as well.)

I hope you all have a good day and a productive semester. I'll see some of you this coming Wednesday and any of you if you wish to schedule a time to meet. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 16:55, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia: check out the Teahouse![edit]

Teahouse logo
Hello! Dmbfan85, you are invited to the Teahouse, a forum on Wikipedia for new editors to ask questions about editing Wikipedia, and get support from peers and experienced editors. Please join us! Sarah (talk) 23:30, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Adding a picture[edit]

No problem If you already have the picture, it's easy to do: [[File:EXAMPLE.JPG|thumb|CAPTION TEXT]] If you don't have the picture, it's a little more complicated, of course. Let me know if that's all you need or if you want more help. I'm here right now! —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:15, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Pictures and licenses So you have to ensure that the license is correct for use on Wikipedia--most pictures can't just be taken and reproduced anywhere. If the license is acceptable, you'll have to upload it to the Commons and then you can use it on Wikipedia (as well as other projects.) So, if you're sure that it has an appropriate license, then I can help you upload it to Commons. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:34, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
