September 3[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

I'd like to correct my user name after registering for the first time today.[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

I entered my username in all lower case today, but the system (inappropriately) capitalized the first character, giving an unintended emphasis to my first name vs. my last. How can I edit my username? davidcassirer (talk) 15:40, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

The system will always make the first letter upper case. For requesting a name change please visit: WP:CHU/S. Jarkeld (talk) 15:44, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

putting images in an article[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

I now have a draft article, but need to include .jpg images. How do I upload images and put them in my article?TankhouseTom (talk) 16:49, 3 September 2011 (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. -- John of Reading (talk) 19:02, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Changing the rendering size of a TeX formula[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

Is it possible to change the rendering size of a TeX formula? In particular, I want to make the letters and numerals in

the same size as the rest of text in the article. Is this possible and if so how can I do this? Toshio Yamaguchi (talk) 12:17, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
