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

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

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 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

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

${\displaystyle {{2^{42737}+1} \over 3}}$

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)
