Orphaned non-free media (File:Three oaks high school.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Three oaks high school.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:13, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Ways to improve Summerside Police Department[edit]

Hi, I'm Jrcrin001. Kburke559, thanks for creating Summerside Police Department!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Add your article's name to other articles. Linking about 3-4 articles to this one, means you can remove the orphan tag. For example add the name to List of law enforcement agencies in Canada. Please use the standard reference format. See: WP:Refb Your article is now a stub, but review similar articles like Halifax Regional Police a B-class rated article for an example. Once you have done this, you can remove the tags or ask me or another to re-review your article. Good start! Jrcrin001 (talk) 01:30, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Re: Ottawa Skyhawks[edit]

Next time, could you PLEASE just use the "Move" button (below the arrow?) That way, the page's history under its old name won't be completely lost. Tom Danson (talk) 22:56, 4 April 2013 (UTC)


  • didn't know there was a move button. still new to wiki, sorry. - kburke559

Borden-Carleton[edit]

Hi Kburke559, regarding this can you provide me with a link from a reliable source that confirms it was re-incorporated? The official date of re-incorporation would be particularly helpful. Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 22:04, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

To: Hwy43 - I'm having trouble finding the link to the news article that saids its now a town, but it says on the town's website that they are a town: [1] Also on there Official Facebook page: [2]. From: Kburke559

We need something better than the community's website because what municipalities are legally incorporated as is not always the way they brand themselves. For example, Wood Buffalo, Alberta brands itself as a "regional municipality" through its official name of the "Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo", but its official municipal status is "specialized municipality". There is no such official municipal status of "regional municipality" in Alberta. What we need, ideally, is a provincial government reference that confirms Borden-Carleton now has "town" status rather than "community" status. Without, it could very well be that Borden-Carleton, like Wood Buffalo, has an official name that implies it has a certain municipal status when in fact its official municipal status is something different.
