Hola Help Desk Team. Thanks so much for helping me each time in the past when I have posted queries here. This forum is perhaps the most amazing place on Wikipedia given the effort you all are taking. One reason I have continued on Wikipedia is because of the wonderful support given by you all. I am sure that must be the same case with other new editors who have been patiently guided by you all. You all are my tireless contributors. Lourdes 07:05, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Adding a cause to a medical page[edit]

Can I upload events logos with a free licence? how?[edit]

I need to upload logos (and other kind of pictures) related to an art event. How can I prove their free licence? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Art.contributor (talkcontribs) 03:32, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

  • If you want to upload an image from your computer for use in an article, you must determine the proper license of the image (or whether it is in the public domain). If you know the image is public domain or copyrighted but under a suitable free-license, upload it to the Wikimedia Commons instead of here, so that all projects have access to the image (sign up). If you are unsure of the licensing status, see the file upload wizard for more information. Please also read Wikipedia's image use policy.
  • If you want to add an image that has already been uploaded to Wikipedia or Wikimedia Commons, add [[File:File name.jpg|thumb|Caption text]] to the area of the article where you want the image to appear – replacing File name.jpg with the actual file name of the image, and Caption text with a short description of the image. See our picture tutorial for more information. I hope this helps. Pppery 03:44, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
@Art.contributor: you can prove a free license by linking to a publication (such as a website) by the copyright holder where a free license is explicitly stated. – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 03:51, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Default image size[edit]

The default image size set in preferences does not seem to be working today, anyone else notice? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 20:19, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Fixed! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talkcontribs)
OK. I moved the question to Wikipedia:Help desk#Default image size and replied before seeing your "Fixed". PrimeHunter (talk) 22:37, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

First-level headings[edit]

I just noticed this page uses first-level = Headings = (<h1>...</h1>) for the date, which are also used for the name of the page. Isn’t this invalid HTML and semantically bad besides? — (talk) 04:19, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

It is done this way because the "new section" link automatically makes new sections with level 2 headers. This makes it necessary to make the higher headers level 1. --Majora (talk) 04:19, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Can that be changed for a specific page? Seems like something that the software should make possible if it doesn’t already. Or at least change the “Click here to ask a question” link to generate a level-three heading; I know we have that capability.
Or am I wrong that having multiple top-level headings on a WP page is a problem? — (talk) 05:15, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
It really isn't a problem and I'm really not sure if that can be changed on a particular page anyways. The &section=new switch automatically makes the header a level 2 header. I don't think that is changeable. --Majora (talk) 05:17, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Madhu Singhal[edit]

Madhu Singhal is blind by birth and she is extremely determined, confident and talented. She has won National award. I wrote this article depending on personal interview with her. I am fine to submit all documents supporting the information provided. But providing links are not possible cause people failed to notice such a great personality. Please suggest. Sudipa Biswas (talk) 20:01, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Please see our No original research policy and notability policy. From your brief description, it sounds like Madhu Singhal does not meet the requirements to have a Wikipedia article about her. Jc3s5h (talk) 20:17, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
