Men of All Colors Together Boston Chapter

Hi, I understand this article was intended to be part of an education program? Unfortunately it appeared to in part an unambiguous copyright infringement of this site, so it had to be deleted. I'm admittedly not that familiar with how the education programs work on Wikipedia (you can ask anything at the education noticeboard), but copyright infringement is not acceptable in any capacity – anywhere on the wiki. Furthermore, it's probably best to keep the article in the user or draft space while work is being done on it, especially when it seems chiefly promotional as this one did, or if there's question the organization is notable. The patrollers are quick to tag articles with major fallacies for speedy deletion, and that surely will put a damper on the educational experience. Again the folks over at WP:EDUN will be able to tell you more. Thanks for your understanding! MusikAnimal talk 22:00, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

    • User:MusikAnimal, thanks for the notice. I agree the article wasn't where it should've been to be in the article namespace. The student will have to redouble his efforts. -Reagle (talk) 13:10, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Change in your user rights

Your Wikipedia account was previously granted a user right called "course instructor" by the Wiki Education Foundation. That right enabled you to create a course page through the EducationProgram MediaWiki extension. Starting in fall 2015, the Wiki Education Foundation has discontinued its use of this extension. Going forward, users should create course pages through the Wiki Education Foundation website. That application is more user-friendly, and any content is automatically mirrored to Wikipedia. To prevent confusion, we'll be removing your "course instructor" user right, as it is not needed with the new system. This is simply a notification of the technical change to your account. No action is needed from you at this time.

If you plan on teaching with Wikipedia for the fall 2015 term, please email me ( for instructions how to create your next course page using our new system. --Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk), sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:34, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Professor Reagle! I am User20159 also known as Dami. Hopefully I get to call myself a savvy Wikipedian by the end of this semester! User20159 (talk) 16:11, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

User20159, howdy! BTW: the convention is to post to the bottom of things so the flow is sorted by time. -Reagle (talk) 20:56, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Professor!! Still a little confused and lost on wikipedia, but I hope to become more than comfortable navigating this platform by the end of the semester!! Alexisvictoria93 (talk) 23:17, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Hey Professor. I'm getting used to the wikipedia stuff, however, it won't let me join the course page. Also, the "Lie Witness" news clip from class reminded me of this one. Check it out if you haven't seen it! -Torma616 (talk) 04:06, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Torma616, let's investigate the course page thing. And, yes, the Penn & Teller show Bullshit was fun. -Reagle (talk) 10:23, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Professor, happy to have you again for class! This wikipedia stuff is all very new to me! Ltruk22 (talk) 12:46, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Professor Reagle! I re-registered into the class listing and withdrew my name but my other username "ahnc24" is still posted, is it possible for you to delete that? I tried on my end but it's still there! Cheers! - Ahn.cha (talk) 11:24, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Ahn.cha, I think I removed the account, let me know if it's still showing come Friday -Reagle (talk) 21:04, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello Professor Reagle :) I know I am more than a little late to the game, but I figured a late hello is better than none at hi, and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. Natawhee7 (talk) 21:40, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 27

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Taza Chocolate, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cacao. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
