Reorganzied, added biographical information and some links. --samiam 12:48, 29 May 2004 (PDT)


Aaron Gillies 12:49, 29 May 2004 (PDT) Above Comment was not mine. I didn't make the changes to the article. Don't attempt to spoof my name like that again.

My apologies, I copied and pasted to get the proper formating (I'm not that great at this stuff) and forgot to change the name, fixed now. --samiam 12:54, 29 May 2004 (PDT)

Just click the squiggly button on the menu bar above. --Aaron Gillies 12:57, 29 May 2004 (PDT)

Ah, thanks, I've never used a wiki before. --Samiam 14:28, 29 May 2004 (PDT)

I put the names of the drugs used back in place. I did this because "drugs" covers a lot of ground. Don't take this to mean that I'm trying to denigrate him or anything, I think hes a great man and I'd be priveleged to know him. I appreciate the addition of the clarification that about his memoir and trip to kenya. --Samiam 21:48, 29 May 2004 (PDT)

Democrat4Obama wholly altered this page with adolescent spam. I reverted it. I do not have a copyright-free picture of Obama to upload to restore or revert.

Image

Can something be done about the image? Aside from it not being a picture of Obama it's extremely offensive.

AlanF 11:46, 25 March 2008 (PDT) Removed image, undid vandalism, and locked the page for the time being.

Please put BarackObama.jpg as the image. It's the image from his senate site, so it's PD. DrDebug 09:21, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
Is that image already uploaded? How do I see a list of image files that are uploaded? I looked at the Wikimedia help to see how to link images, and I tried using [ [ Media:BarackObama.jpg ] ] (no spaces), but that didn't work. AlanF
I uploaded a month ago. The syntax is image= Image:BarackObama.jpg
Image: is used for images and Media: is for stuff like sound file, documents and other formats.

You do not need to supply the brackets because it is a template.

About the list of images, select Special:Allpages and change namespace to Images and you get an overview of all the available images. DrDebug 11:24, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
Done, and thanks for the info. AlanF

spelling

The current version is "he" for "the." Somebody with editing capability may want to fix that typo. 19:06, 31 March 2008 (PDT)

In which paragraph? AlanF

The one that says: "became a lecturer at he University of Chicago" p0m 21:05, 1 April 2008 (PDT)

Done. AlanF
