The results of the questionnaire will be published in next month's newsletter. If you know of any editors who have edited film articles in the past, please invite them to take part in the questionnaire. Please stop by and take a few minutes to answer the questions so that we can continue to improve our project. Happy editing!

NowCommons: File:St Louis wide.jpg[edit]

File:St Louis wide.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:St Louis wide.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:St Louis wide.jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 16:26, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Louisiana State University[edit]

The article Louisiana State University you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol unsupport vote.svg; see Talk:Louisiana State University for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of said article. If you oppose this decision, you may ask for a reassessment.

Compson family tree[edit]

Just to let you know, Benjamin's DOB is listed as 1985. I think you meant to put 1895. Thanks for putting that up, by the way. It's a great help. And awesome pics of the campus as well. Willcrys 84 (talk) 04:26, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Lsumike.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Lsumike.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 08:05, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted at LSU[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you indicated an association with Louisiana State University. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at LSU, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Baton Rouge and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 17:04, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:TownInterior1.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:TownInterior1.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 00:24, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Your image uploads[edit]

Hi. You have uploaded a lot of photos to Wikipedia. Are these photos that you, personally, own the copyright to? I ask because File:Lsuaerial.jpg seems to be a retouched version of the second photo on this page, which the user there says were part of a photogrammetry project. Are you a part of this same team? In general, if photos are taken using college resources, the school owns the copyright. Do you, personally, hold the copyright for these photos? --B (talk) 02:46, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

B- thanks for catching this. The photos were taken for a college project but no college resources were used. That said, Nowhereman86 appears to have uploaded this to wikipedia without my knowledge nor permission. (Stuadms (talk) 08:02, 23 April 2012 (UTC))

GA Columbia University[edit]

Thank you for nominating Columbia University for a GA review. Unfortunately, there are so many unsourced statements that it would not be practical to put it on hold for you to correct. It is an important and interesting article and I hope that you renominate it when you have more footnotes. Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 01:22, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Sidney Lumet[edit]

Nowhereman86, with regards to the alumni section, we are not to dispute who has more accomplishments because many notable alumni represented are notable. Instead, we are trying to represent alumni from all fields. If you feel compelled to just remove any alumnus who does not cater to your preference with respect to accomplishments/notability, it is not a valid reason to remove them and plaster the alumnus you feel more notable instead.

If you really feel that Sidney Lumet is notable, it is fine. However, you must agree that science alumni are not represented at all in the Columbia alumni section, and Columbia does have many great scientists/researchers. It is a notable research university after all, and not just a film/art school. Please provide me with an option/alternative to represent scientific alumni in the picture gallery. Otherwise, I will undo your change and start a column, so that other wiki editors can join in to decide on the matter. Thank you Zoroastrama100 (talk) 13:36, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Pic Hamilton Hall[edit]

Explain a valid reason for taking off the Hamilton Hall (which is the admissions residence)

Zoroastrama (talk) 18:50, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

These are not valid reason for taking down other editors' images, when it comes to formatting. Wikipedia does not have an established rules for formatting that unless complied warrants removal. If the image distorts the appearance of the article too much, then it is natural to remove such an image. The formatting mistake should be fixed; you can help as another wiki editor. It should not be the basis for removal. I think that there is no image more direct than plastering the image of the admissions office in the admissions section. The revision might not be what you like, but you are not the only wiki editor. It would be nonsensical if I remove your photo, because I find minute details that I do not like.

Friendly reminder[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. —Eustress talk 14:17, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Benjamin's birth year is way off. Could you please fix this? It seems that two numerals are transposed. I'm deleting it from various articles until fixed. Thanks! Softlavender (talk) 08:59, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

LSU Aerial Imagery Source Origin[edit]

File permission problem with File:Lsuaerial.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Lsuaerial.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. GrapedApe (talk) 01:38, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
