staement of faith
If I am writing their staement of faith for a few different things, since they have a statement of faith for 8 different things, you said to pick the most important ones...so i'm doing that. But i don't remember if you said to quote them word by word and cite it, or just give a brief description in my own words... what do i do?
www.flickr.com is not an acceptable "Source" link. You must provide the full address to the page where the image and its description can be found.
You'll need to go back and edit the text file for the images that only contain (www.flickr.com) as a source URL.
You can edit the image text file just as you do your webpage. Click the image, then the link to the description file on the Pool and click edit and alter content accordingly.
"Some Rights Reserved" is not sufficient for a Copyright Status. You must include the link to the "Creative Commons License". The text on flickr that says Some Rights Reserved links to the license.
You'll need to go add that info to the Red sea urchin images by editing their text similar to any other page.
Check the changes I made on your "main" image (link below) and do the same to the others. But be aware that each image has a unique license.
I have assigned you the South American species, which is best known by that name (at least in the Americas). You should make a decision now about how you want to handle the paper and let me know. (i.e. do you want it to be about Agalychnis callidryas or the Red-eyes in general) They are both from the same family, but are different species from different genera.
During your research, make sure you know which species the source is referring too, and provide information specifically about that species.
I also noticed that you uploaded a smaller version of the following image than the one on your source and did not include the information from the author about where the image was taken. For species identification, the location is very important. I noticed you correctly assigned it a species name yourself. Were you aware there were two species - or were you just guessing at the name? http://creationwiki.org/pool/Image:Agalychnis_callidryas.jpg
Note the author says its from Costa Rica http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrmighty/2074104340/
Note that your topic is the genus Helianthus - not just the one species...
Footnote reference system
Use the footnote style references for this paper. Its a little more advanced, but we prefer that all accomplished users utilize it. I've set it up on your trans fat article with the required tag in your references section and put an example references up in your first topic section. Here's the help page on how its done (Help:Footnote). Note how to "name" references that are used multiple times so they arent listed repetitively in the Bibliography.
I decided to change my topic from trans fat to vitamin B-12 and it's chemistry makeup. Trans fat was already covered in the page of Fats and lipids and covered all the information I would've put. So I changed my topic to B-12. Is that all right?
Use MLA format and include a page number for all textbook references. See Digestive system for example.
