Edits to hypothyroidism[edit]

Hello, thank you for your contributions. Please be a little more cautious when editing. Sources should generally follow WP:MEDRS guidelines, in particular it should be mostly reviews published in peer reviewed journals. The article about hypothyroidism already has a bunch of sources, try to reuse those before adding new ones. Look at some [really good] articles to see how to write a great article. Richiez (talk) 18:53, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Just to mention, if you have a particular concern with some article you can also ask questions on the article talk page. For general questions regarding medical articles see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine. Richiez (talk) 20:16, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Boué Soeurs[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 Boué Soeurs requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four halfwidth tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. RadioFan (talk) 20:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

I've removed the speedy delete tag because you claim to have written this yourself. Please clarify that you are the copyright holder. If not, the article would have to be removed or permission obtained from the copyright holder. Station1 (talk) 20:13, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
The speedy tag has been replaced and must stay there until copyright concerns are resolved. Since there are concerns about the content anyway, I'd recommend against going to the trouble of getting permission to copy and paste from the copyright holder. While this subject may be able to meet notability guidelines, I'm not seeing any reason to keep this text there. Let's allow it to be speedily deleted and then work on creating an encyclopedic article that is properly cited to reliable sources.--RadioFan (talk) 20:20, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Copyright problem: Boué Soeurs[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Boué Soeurs, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from comment in article admits to being taken from another copyrighted source, and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:Boué Soeurs saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved. Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! Dpmuk (talk) 20:37, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Boué Soeurs[edit]

Boué Soeurs has been deleted. This is because the content that you copied and pasted in there was copyrighted and cannot be accepted as a result (see above). Several editors agreed that the subject is likely notable so you may recreate this article if you like but please do so in your own words and be sure to cite refrences used and make sure those are reliable sources. You are going to want to avoid using your own work as a reference as that will be considered an original source.--RadioFan (talk) 20:53, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

How to verify copyright[edit]

Hi. First, I'm sorry for all the confusion above. A lot of people try to place content on Wikipedia to which they have no rights, and we do try to be vigilant to avoid causing irreperable harm to copyright holders. Once content is published on Wikipedia, it can swiftly mirrored around the world, making it very difficult for rights holders to regain control of their content. However, is is not a violation of copyright for you to place your own content on Wikipedia. Evidently, some of the contributors tagging the article were unaware that the speedy deletion criterion for copyright problems does not apply when you have claimed to be the author of the work. The administrator who deleted the material has been advised that you indicate you are the author and has placed the article at User:Ellen Ada Goldberg/Boué Soeurs so that we can work out the copyright confusion. Because we have not yet verified, the material is blanked.

Given the note that you placed at the top of the article, though, I do want to make very sure that you understand that while the thesis itself may be under copyright with all rights reserved, content you place on Wikipedia is liberally licensed for reuse and modification. You are not required to release the entire thesis, but whatever you place here must be under the Wikimedia Foundation's Terms of Use. That holds true for any edit you make to any article or page on Wikipedia. As part of the project's goal to spread knowledge, we all agree to these terms every time we hit "save."

Presuming that you intend to release this excerpt under our license, the easiest way to verify this material would be for you to contact the Wikimedia Foundation from an e-mail address provided to you by the Fashion Institute of Technology's Museum Studies program. If you don't have one of those, we can still work out the permission. It's just a little more complicated. As one of the people who helps handle the Wikimedia Foundation's e-mail permissions, I would be very happy to try to help find a doable workaround. I'll be watching your talk page for a time, so I will see any answers you leave here. You are also very welcome to come by my talk page for more information.

I hope you're not discouraged by this experience. Generally, we try to make Wikipedia friendly for new users, but occasionally things don't run as smoothly as we'd like. :/ --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:00, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Since you haven't returned, I am deleting the copy of the article in userspace. We can't keep it around for too long without that verification. Please feel free to come by my talk page if you do return and want to verify. Again, I hope that you have not found this experience too discouraging. We do welcome your contributions; it's unfortunate that you ran into a rather complex issue right off the bat. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:05, 1 April 2011 (UTC)


[Note: The following addendum by Ellen Ada Goldberg to the archived deletion discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Boue souers was moved here after being deleted there by another editor. Station1 (talk) 20:19, 26 March 2011 (UTC)]

Hi Wikipedia et all, thank you for clarifying all the issues. I did not realize that even if I wrote the thesis, which I did, because it is under copyright that means that even I have to rephrase every word. Good to know. Some things are just not meant to be rephrased. I hope that you will take the chance to make an appointment and read it in the FIT Gladys Marcus Library. Especially Phil Bridger, who seems to take such a respectful interest in the topic. FIT is on 27th Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan If you go please be sure to enjoy the free, world-renowned Museum at FIT. Thanks again for all your work and for managing a sometimes difficult but highly sincere contributor. No hard feelings. Have a happy Spring. -Ellen — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ellen Ada Goldberg (talkcontribs) 04:31, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Ellen, If you wrote the thesis and you did not give or sell your copyright to the school or anyone else, then you do not have to rephrase every word. Your article is valuable and I hope you will consider either confirming that you continue to own the copyright and are willing to freely license your words on Wikipedia, or get permission from the copyright holder if not you, or that you rewrite the article for Wikipedia. If I can help in any way, please leave a note on my talk page. Station1 (talk) 20:19, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
