September 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello! Thank you for your recent contributions to Justin Cappos. I did have one note for you. I am working on a maintenance project to clean up Category:Pages using infoboxes with thumbnail images. In the future, please do not use thumbnails when adding images to an infobox (see WP:INFOBOXIMAGE). What does this mean? Well in the infobox, when you specify the image you wish to use, instead of doing it like this:

|image=[[File:SomeImage.jpg|thumb|Some image caption]]

Instead just supply the name of the image. So in this case you can simply do:

|image=SomeImage.jpg.

There will then be a separate parameter for the image caption such as |caption=Some image caption. Please note that this is a generic form message I am leaving on your page because you recently added a thumbnail to an infobox. The specific parameters for the image and caption may be different for the infobox you are using! Please consult the Template page for the infobox being used to see better documentation. Thanks!!

Proposed deletion of Justin Cappos[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Justin Cappos has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Overly promotional with multiple external links and not enough indication of notability.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 18:21, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

@Zackmann08: I'm new to Wikipedia. I moved the article to Draft: because I read on one of the Wikipedia help rabbit holes that this is a good way to park an article while you fix it thereby avoiding getting it deleted. was I wrong to do this?Kgberg (talk) 23:06, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Justin Cappos, professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Justin Cappos, professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.png, which you've attributed to NYU Tandon School of Engineering. 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 are the copyright holder for 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 Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 00:42, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Please help me with...our incoming dean at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, Jelena Kovačević, has asked me to delete something from her Wikipedia page, specifically "Head of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University." I don't wish to break the rules vis a vis proper editing of a biography of a living person, but it's critical to her that she no longer have the Carnegie Mellon association on her Wiki page. Is it possible to do this change without her page getting flagged? Thank you very much for any advice on this!

Kgberg (talk) 13:40, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Kgberg Can you please clarify why it needs to be removed? It appears to be sourced. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 14:47, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

CHRISSYMAD Yes, while until fairly recently she was head of computer and electrical engineering at CM, she has since left, and next month begins as Dean here at NYU Tandon. She (and we) just wants to make that change clear on her Wikipedia page. If I include — with any editorial changes I make — valid link(s) either to a page at Carnegie Mellon stating that she has departed for NYU Tandon (or from some other source stating so), or a link from NYU's news site, (or from a legitimate news site) that she is soon to be the new Dean here at Tandon will I be okay? thanks again. Kgberg (talk) 17:03, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

You can request it on the talk page, per WP:COI but it won't be removed in it's entirety. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 21:05, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
okay, thanks. Request on the talk page associated with her site, right? Newbie question. Kgberg (talk) 17:18, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
CHRISSYMAD it was suggested to me in Tealounge that I add a template when I ask for changes on talk pages in which my relationship is COI. Would that template be Kgberg (talk) 16:25, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
