Hello,

My name is Charity Ogunsanya and I am excited to be starting up my wiki page.

Hi, Charity, welcome to Wikipedia! Here is one comment -- this is your talk page, for conversations with other Wikipedia users. The self-introduction you wrote above is probably better suited to your user page, which you haven't created yet. It's important to understand the distinction between a user page and a talk page. Cheers! Klortho (talk) 01:03, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Chris, still trying to figure out how to create the user page. I thought by registering, the user page will automatically be created. Please help. Seguncha (talk) 16:06, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Chris, Please check my user page and see if I did it right. Seguncha (talk) 16:13, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

It looks great, Charity! Two comments:
1, This is your Wikipedia user page, and is public. People might be coming to it from any other web link -- even Google! So (just a suggestion) you might want to introduce yourself in a more general fashion, instead of something that's very specific to the Molecular Biology class you are in right now.
2, You don't need to sign the stuff you write on your user page. Signatures (~~~~) are just for talk pages, like this one. They are used to keep track of who said what in a back-and-forth conversation. But on user pages (and article pages for that matter) the content is what matters -- not who wrote it.

Editing other people's talk pages[edit]

Hi, Charity, I see that you also added a comment to Amy's user page. Please review the tutorial materials some more and make sure you are clear about the difference between a user page and a talk page. A user page is like a person's personal profile, and it's really their space, for them to edit. Other people, in general, shouldn't edit it. A talk page is for back-and-forth discussions, and anyone is free to leave a comment there. I think you probably intended to put your comment on her talk page. Klortho (talk) 17:42, 15 September 2012 (UTC)


Hi Chris,
You are absolutely right. My mistake. Hopefully, I will get a hang of this. Seguncha (talk) 17:19, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Hi Charity, it is okay -- it is a lot to try to absorb in a short time. I see that you signed your comment above, which is great -- good job! But don't forget to indent the replies that you make on talk pages, by starting them with a colon character (":"). Every new reply should have one more colon character than the one before. I've gone ahead and indented the reply that you just made, and now my reply to your reply (this text) is preceded by two colons ("::"). If you click the "edit" button on this talk page, you should be able to see what I've done. Klortho (talk) 17:55, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Hi Chris, Got it. Seguncha (talk) 17:57, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey Charity![edit]

Hello Charity,

My name is Shan Sabri. I am also a student in Professor Ogg's Molecular Biology course. I'm glad you could join us!

Welcome[edit]

Hello, Seguncha and welcome to Wikipedia! It appears you are participating in a class project. We encourage you to read our instructions for students. Your instructor or professor may wish to participate in either the School and University WikiProject or the Global Education Program. The Global Education Program is supported by the Wikimedia Foundation and offers official online and classroom support through the Ambassador Program.

Here are some other pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{Helpme}} before the question.

Before you create an article, make sure you understand what kind of articles are accepted here. Remember: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and while many topics are encyclopedic, some things are not.

It is highly recommended that you place this text: {{Educational assignment}} on the talk page of any articles you are working on as part of your Wikipedia-related course assignment. This will let other editors know this article is a subject of an educational assignment and should be treated accordingly.

We hope you like it here and encourage you to stay even after your assignment is finished! Pharaoh of the Wizards (talk) 05:47, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Seguncha, please ignore the advice above about placing the "{{Educational assignment}} on the talk page of any articles you are working on". I will take care of putting the appropriate notifications on those pages, once the articles are determined. Klortho (talk) 10:54, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Post from my page[edit]

Hi Charity, here is the post from my page in case you want to put it in your page. I am not sure yet where we put something that we want to work on together, so I will try and figure it out and we can give it a go. I will post back here, or you can post on my page if you figure it out first.

Molecular Biology of the genes provides a lot of critical information that will help us apply our skills within the Biotech industry. This is especially important in providing researchers a better understanding of genetic treatment pathways when designing new products that may potentially aid in the cure of diffcult disease conditions.

Amy, we had in mind that collaboration would mostly be done on the group talk pages, but, of course, you haven't been assigned to groups, yet. So, in the meantime, posts like this on each others' talk pages are the way to go. You can start a threaded discussion, and even invite others (besides just you two) to join, by posting messages on their talk pages, with a link to this thread. Klortho (talk) 13:54, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

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

Teahouse logo
Hello! Seguncha, 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!

I, and the rest of the hosts, would be more than happy to answer any questions you have! SarahStierch (talk) 04:35, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Added a comment re your article draft[edit]

Hi, I made a comment on your group talk page, related to your article draft, here, and I just want to make sure you see it. Klortho (talk) 12:38, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:The pattern of HoxB gene expression.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:The pattern of HoxB gene expression.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release 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 permissions-en@wikimedia.org, 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 permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} 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. Stefan2 (talk) 00:10, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
