Hello, Noahgford, and welcome to Wikipedia! My name is Yunshui, and I am your Online Ambassador for Dr Mynlieff's Neurobiology course. My job here is to help you work within Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, to answer any questions that you have about editing here, and to act as your advocate in the (unlikely) event that you find yourself in a dispute with another user.
You are welcome to contact me at any time by leaving a message on my Wikipedia talkpage or by emailing me. I will respond to any messages within 24 hours (though I aim to be faster!), but if you need more immediate help, you can ask questions of experienced editors at The Teahouse or get live help via Wikipedia's IRC channel (connect here).
Here are some pages that you might find helpful:
- Introduction to Wikipedia
- The five pillars of Wikipedia
- How to edit a page and How to develop articles
- Simplified Manual of Style
Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. Once again, if you need help with any aspect of Wikipedia, please just ask; it's what I'm here for. Enjoy your course! Yunshui 雲水 09:21, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Note from instructor
Congratulations on navigating the complexities of images on Wikipedia to successfully place a picture on your userpage (awesome choice, by the way!). If you want a bit more information on image use and formatting here, check out this short essay Yunshui 雲水 11:19, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free image File:Electrophysiological findings table.jpg
Thanks for uploading File:Electrophysiological findings table.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
Hi Stefan2 thanks for informing me about the deletion policy for images. The image in question will be going live on the Electromyoneurography article page that is being edited as part of a Neurobiology course at Marquette University. The article that we have composed will be going live tomorrow. Noahgford (talk) 16:21, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free media (File:Electrophysiological findings table.jpg)
Thanks for uploading File:Electrophysiological findings table.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 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) 04:16, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
Help us improve the Wikipedia Education Program
Hi Noahgford! As a student editor on Wikipedia, you have a lot of valuable experience about what it's like to edit as a part of a classroom assignment. In order to help other students like you enjoy editing while contributing positively to Wikipedia, it's extremely helpful to hear from real student editors about their challenges, successes, and support needs. Please take a few minutes to answer these questions by clicking below. (Note that the responses are posted to a public wiki page.) Thanks!
