Re:Holocaust crueltyEdit

Huh? What are you talking about?

I warned the user after you because they made those edits. Are you trying to say that it was your friend who made those edits?

--Nishkid64 22:57, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

You're missing something here. I did not say you vandalized the page. I warned the IP address who edited the page after you and added all the "gay" stuff. Why do you keep thinking I'm accusing you of vandalism? --Nishkid64 23:09, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

cos it was my username that got the message. anyway do you like my article?

Check out the user_talk page history. I did not warn you about the article. I warned the IP address. All the edits I made to this page were part of the conversation we have right now under this section heading. --Nishkid64 15:56, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Holocaust CrueltyEdit

I did not and do not propose that the article be deleted. A request for expert attention is by no means a request for deletion. A request for expert attention means that someone who has a better knowledge of the subject will suggest what other course of action to take.

That said, i do have some objections to the article, which are already mentioned on the articles talk-page. V. Joe 15:42, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Please don't object, it took me weeks to write that, and I'm only new to Wikipedia, perhaps you could show me the ropes and suggest ways for me to improve my article?

HolocaustEdit

Hi, I notice that you made some major changes to article on The Holocaust, most of which was finding citations, which is great. However, in a couple of places you removed sizeable chunks of text, in particular the section dealing with the functionalism / intentionalism debate. I assume you did this because those sections were uncited (it would help if you provided edit summaries, saying why you are making a particular edit) but it is not generally a good idea to remove big sections without discussion on the talk page first. This is doubly true for sensitive subjects like the Holocaust. For this reason I have undone some of your edits, replacing the sections on children, functionalism / intentionalism, Klaus Barbie and ‎Aribert Heim. I've added {{fact}} tags to the latter two. Cheers, Squiddy | (squirt ink?) 16:22, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Sorry I didnt see the need for functionalism and intentionalism to be there, and if it was it should be much smaller, and i deleted the children thing because i wrote it first and worded it badly, i was re-wording it and then gonna put it in with sources that could be cited
I sort of agree that the length of the functionalism and intentionalism section is excessive, since it's longer than the Functionalism versus intentionalism article, but still probably best to bring it to the article talk page first. Something that long is likely to have been worked on by many editors over a period of time. Squiddy | (squirt ink?) 10:19, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi again, I'm not sure what's going wrong, but your 'cite web' templates seem to be malformed; They come out as:

Error on call to Template:cite web: Parameters url and title must be specified.

I think you need to put
|title of web page
before the final }}. You can look at the result of your editing with the 'show preview' button. Cheers, Squiddy | (squirt ink?) 21:18, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

  • I have done and its coming out fine, or at least it does when i hit the show preview button. Wikipedia hates me :-(

POTDEdit

Hi and thanks for creating the POTD for February 24. However, this image isn't going to be scheduled until much later. The PsOTD are selected from the Featured Pictures and are scheduled in order of promotion (the order is preserved on Wikipedia:Featured pictures thumbs). You happened to come upon it in a weird point. The last "new" one in order was done on February 21 (trench warfare). Then I scheduled a rerun on the 22nd (we do 2 old ones a week to make sure we don't run out), then on the 23rd there's a bird which should have come earlier, but I delayed that one because we just had another House Sparrow on January 21. Thus, the one that's supposed to go on the 24th is the chipmunk picture. The Titanic pic is 61 places behind it, which is almost three months away. Regards, howcheng {chat} 21:32, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Aww thanks, thats real nice, I'll go take a looksie. Thanks again. Your response is really incisive—given the breadth of the question—, well written and knowledgeable. Thanks again for taking the time to reply to my question Ahadland 21:02, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Titanic grand staircase.gifEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Titanic grand staircase.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 10:55, 25 February 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. |EPO| 10:55, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

POTD schedulingEdit

Hi, have you read the guidelines yet? I know you are eager to get the FP you nominated onto POTD, but it's still 19 pictures away, so please be patient. The Titanic pic won't be up for POTD until May 2. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 01:02, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

    • Ive already stated on the articles talk page i think the article is far too big, im condensing things which are irrelevant, such as what happened in croat? Who cares? You need to only mention who was killed overall— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ahadland1234 (talkcontribs) 19:25, 12 March 2007

I've reverted your edits to The Holocaust. Please take this up on the talk page if you have a good method for splitting off articles from the main one. Thanks. --EarthPerson 19:36, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Id've thought most people would have approved— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ahadland1234 (talkcontribs) 19:37, 12 March 2007
I really think you should take it to the talk page. The new pages you were creating were lacking references from the main one. --EarthPerson 19:40, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
It was the same text from the article itself, just redirected to a new location Ahadland 19:42, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

  Please stop. If you continue to delete or blank page contents or templates from Wikipedia, as you did to The Holocaust, you will be blocked from editing. Gwernol 19:38, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

  • What, well why was the article allowed to become so, politely, thorough? I'll stop but it really does need to be made more incisiveAhadland 19:41, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Incisive means direct, not necessarily short. Some subject require extensive coverage to fully document them. If you are going to make major changes to an article, especially one as controversial as The Holocaust, you need to discuss it first on the talk page. As noted above, the sub-articles you created have a number of problems: the references are broken, they don't cover just the subjects you have titled them for and by pushing some information out of the main article you may introduce bias into the coverage of the subject. For these reasons it is very important that you discuss your proposed changes. As you can see, you assumption that "people would have approved" isn't a good one in this case. Thanks, Gwernol 19:46, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
So, you think the article is an appropriate size? Ahadland 19:49, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
I think the article is the result of a lot of work by numerous dedicated editors, and one person coming in an makingn unilateral decisions based on their opinions is inappropriate. Wikipedia is a collaborative effort. Gwernol 19:51, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
So the answer to my question is. So like a politician not a yes or no —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ahadland1234 (talkcontribs).
I'm asking you to respect the process, I don't have a specific opinion about the length of the article. Gwernol 20:21, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
So why are you involved in a dispute about the length of the article?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ahadland1234 (talkcontribs).
Because you deleted a large chunk of the article without explaining why and continued to do it after being politely asked by multiple editors not to. You did this to an article that is highly sensitive in a manner that did not help Wikipedia or the article. I am asking you to follow the process and collaborate with other editors on the article's talk page instead of acting unilaterally. Gwernol 20:31, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Well im very sorry for my reckless editing how do i begin the protest of petitioning the articles size? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ahadland1234 (talkcontribs).
Go to the article's talk page. Propose a set of changes. Discuss with the other editors on that talk page. Reach consensus between you on what changes to make. Make the changes after consensus has been reached. Gwernol 20:38, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks!

Hello Ahadland1234, what an interesting user name.Trampton 16:39, 23 March 2007 (UTC).

Answers to your Reference Desk questionsEdit

...regarding Nazi-era photos of Jews being humiliated, have already been provided there by myself and others. Have you followed up by reading the material suggested to you, before repeating your queries? The rapid posting of your query on my User talk page indicates to me that you haven't.

More to the point, perhaps, are the nature of your assertions and speculations about the photographed spectators' motives and behaviors, and your stated difficulty in understanding such. These seem to me quite inconsistent with the information you've provided about yourself on your recently created User page, particularly your being an Ashkenazic Jewish young adult residing in an English-speaking Western country, a Mensa member familiar with contemporary television programs, etc. You evidently have Internet access and are literate, so any gaps in your education regarding knowledge of human behavior, society, history, etc. can certainly be remedied.

If your questions are rhetorical, I would again refer you to factual sources already provided. If you're looking for discussion: while the proper venue in Wikipedia would indeed be on the User talk pages, kindly understand that I myself am not available to engage in such, beyond my replies on the Reference desk. -- Thank you, Deborahjay 00:45, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Im sorry its just that the topic really ticks me off, and I want to understand why people accepted what was happening, because Im Jewish, and naturally would like to understand why my people are being made to suffer --User:Ahadland1234 11:56, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
As I read your questions: you seek to understand (a) why non-Jews (e.g. the onlookers in the photos) "accepted" [as you purport, which I contend can't be known from the photos) what was happening, and (b) why Jews (e.g. inhabitants of ghettos being liquidated, or sent on transports to extermination camps) acquiesced to what was being done to them. You will find the answers by reading the Wikipedia pages on these and related topics (accessible by internal links), along with the many books, both fiction and nonfiction, recommended to you in response to your queries on the Reference desk. Numerous users here have offered you helpful guidance and significant ideas; now I believe it's time for you to follow through by studying and learning. You may also find it valuable to talk with people in your community, such as a rabbi or history teacher, or in Internet forums on these topics. -- Good luck, Deborahjay 12:41, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
On the other pictures i put up there are clearly people forming a ring, and smiling, this is, in my view, people supporting the events. And you misinterpreted my second question, I wondered why non-ghetto inhabitants didn't wonder why the ghettos had suddenly become quiet. Wouldnt it strike them as strange that one minute the ghetto's are crowded and full of hustle and bustle, and the next they are deathly silent? I know that that sort of occurrence would perplex me --User:Ahadland1234 14:37, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be fair to say that the ghettos' neighbors — people who had lived for years under Nazi occupation during the world war — would not be so perplexed as you seem to suppose. If you don't understand this yet, evidently your previous education has failed to provide you some very basic understanding of 20th century warfare and European history. Fortunately, a great deal of information is available to remedy this. Your lack of comprehension is likely to be dispelled when you go read about WWII as you have been repeatedly told. As for the smiling bystanders, let's think of some possibilities besides those that have already been raised in previous, lengthy discussion:
  • The picture was staged
  • The people are Nazi sympathizers
  • They are experiencing schadenfreude
I think the time has come to end this discussion, as I really have nothing more to add. Perhaps you should contact your local Mensa chapter for further academic guidance should you require any.-- Hope this helps, Deborahjay 15:08, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
Forgive me but this script reads like you think I'm a moron, which I am not. Our history lessons didn't devote much time as to why people who lived near the ghetto's weren't shocked by them being liquidated, subsequently, you havent answered my question either regarding that. I am only sixteen and do not understand why citizens would just watch while people are being shot by the Einsatzgruppen, or persecuted. My question is simple, why do people let this sadism occur. And thus far, I've received only a limited number of adequate reponses. As to why the people in the pictures are smiling what you have said makes sense, but how would you stage something like that, and if it were staged that shows that Nazi policy had little widespread support, so the photographs wouldn't have been used. Other than that your answer is very nice. --User:Ahadland1234 17:04, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
First of all: staging photos with costumed actors is easy enough, and remember that the mass media in WWII-era Europe was by no means as developed as today's, and was controlled besides. By the time the ghettos were liquidated (1941 –1944), the Nazis' murderous practices aimed at civilian populations were familiar and hard to combat, resistance (incl. partisan and underground) movements being the exception. I would say overall: simple (and fair) questions of ethics and human nature have long occupied far greater minds than mine, and with no conclusive (or brief) answers. Please accept my apology for the exasperated tone you noted in my later remarks, and this explanation: I am deeply concerned at the prospect that an intelligent young person educated in a Western democracy nowadays would have such difficulty accepting the fact (as I and many see it, though not the Holocaust deniers) of apparent or actual failure to oppose the Nazis during their ascent and regime. Or perhaps you are expressing a form of moral outrage? We may consider warfare and terrorism to be two major failures of the human race to behave humanely: the victimization of the weak by the stronger, brutalizes and dehumanizes both. For all the reasons and explanations given for antisemitism, none seem to help neutralize, let alone eradicate it. Studying the lessons of the Holocaust will confront you with untold horrors and terrors, but you will learn much. The difficult part is finding how to make a difference for good, but I can assure you that this is sorely needed, and worthwhile. For what it's worth, I think you're asking the right questions; I wish more people would. -- Yours truly, Deborahjay 21:22, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

FPC reshootingEdit

Please revisit Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Timothy Blackstone Bronze Plaque and reconsider your vote. TonyTheTiger (talk/cont/bio) 14:24, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much for informing me of this, I have since changed my vote to support. --User:Ahadland1234 14:38, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Re:AdoptionEdit

Well, we can get started right now, or whenever you'd like. Just leave me a message when you want and with whatever you want to start with (If you don't know, just tell me). Talk to you soon. Alex43223 T | C | E 22:54, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

OkayEdit

Thats fine. I can see you've been editing since August 12, 2006, so even though you have a majority of wiki-space edits, I trust you know the quintessential basics of editing. With this in mind, do you know the basics of images? If not I'd suggest we start there. Otherwise, I'd suggest we start with Wikipedia process. Are you interested in learning about process? If not, do you JUST want to edit articles, or what? Just tell me about this, and then I can better understand what it is that we should start with. Cheers. Alex43223 T | C | E 23:28, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Sw1-DesertDuel.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Sw1-DesertDuel.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 13:09, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Quigonheadshot.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Quigonheadshot.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 13:19, 11 April 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey 13:19, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Form IV: Ataru (Lightsaber combat)Edit

I've nominated Form IV: Ataru (Lightsaber combat), an article you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but in this particular case I do not feel that Form IV: Ataru (Lightsaber combat) satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion; I have explained why in the nomination space (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and the Wikipedia deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Form IV: Ataru (Lightsaber combat) and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Form IV: Ataru (Lightsaber combat) during the discussion but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. Sandstein 12:27, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • You never left a message on the talk page, how was I supposed to know it would be deleted? --HadzTalk 18:39, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
    • From WP:OR. And besides, now you know. Sandstein 21:00, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

READ THIS - FIRST AND ONLY WARNING!Edit

Most or all of your image contributions appear to be in violation of our copyright policy. They are unsourced and/or appear to be falsely labeled as GFDL, when it appears much more likely that they have been copied from some commercial source (e.g. Image:339px-ZuckussEGC.jpg, Image:436px-JustissSW89.jpg). You have so far ignored the copyright messages left at this talk page, above. You have 24 hours as of this message to clean up all your uploaded images, that is, add correct and complete source and licencing information to all of them, and to request the deletion of any copyvio images by adding {{db-author}} to them. If you fail to do this, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Sandstein 20:59, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I copied the copyright information from other wikia sites, if you have a problem take it up with them, otherwise, get stuffed. Im fed up of people having a go at me for trying to contribute. If you don't like it, up yours and fuck your stupid encyclopedia. Big deal, it has a lot of articles, most of which are stubs or unreferenced. Im fed up of everyone having a go at me, so what if I did something wrong, you dickhead, its not like it did lasting damage, fix it. Dumass --HadzTalk 21:09, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Please see Wikipedia's no personal attacks policy. Comment on content, not on contributors; personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Note that continued personal attacks may lead to blocks for disruption. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. Corvus cornix 21:09, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
      • He was attacking me,he was fair gain, I try to contribute but get a little stuck sometimes, and some moron sends me a talk page which is considerably rude, and doesn't give any constructive advice. He can go take a flying you know what! --HadzTalk 21:11, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
        • User:Sandstein is an admin, and as such, he has been recognized by the Wikipedia community as one of those who can be trusted with the responsibility of keeping the site clean of copyright violations, among other things. I see nothing anywhere close to an attack in his comments. Corvus cornix 21:14, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
          • No but, do this or you'll get blocked, wheres that come from? Falsely was in italics as though it were deliberate or something. He could have asked politely, and I don't care if I've offended some pompous prick. As I said, I'm here to contribute, and if I made a mistake, I'd like to be informed not threatened. So as I said before, he can still go and take a flying you know what, and if your supporting him, you can too --HadzTalk 21:16, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
            • You have to realize that Wikipedia admins are always getting challenged when they're trying to do their jobs. If you don't put a valid copyright tag on an image, and you've been repeatedly asked to do so, it's looked upon as disruptive. I will admit that Sandstein's language may have been a little harsh, especially the upper casing, but he's probably having a bad day. :) Try asking him on his Talk page what it is that he's asking for. :) Corvus cornix 21:18, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
              • And he has to realize that most ordinary people dont like having stupid messages left on their page. If I've allegedly ignored the messages perhaps its because I don't know how to change an images copyright. But of course, nobody has given that a second thought have they? --HadzTalk 21:22, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

<-- undent. I did ask you to be polite. You're likely to get blocked if you continue with your attacks and refusal to follow Wikipedia image policy. Corvus cornix 21:29, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, I did try to calm things down, but if you continue in this vein, expect to get blocked. Corvus cornix 21:33, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Well he's ticked me off, big time, so what do you expect, this little Utopia you have going on the site only lasts so long as people don't go round annoying people. --HadzTalk 21:38, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

The upper casing, although extraordinary, appeared necessary to get you to understand that we take copyright policy seriously here, given that you appear not to care in the least about it. I suggest you start cleaning up your images right now. There are plenty of instructions in the above messages about how to do it, or you can ask any admin - including me - if you have any questions. Any further incivilities will not be tolerated and will result in you being blocked. Sandstein 21:44, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Course its fair gain if you do it, thats why a lot of people on your talk page note how rude you are, and somebody even reported you for an abuse of power. So before you take the moral high-ground, do a thorough self-appraisal first. Also the wording of your argument I found out offensive using falsely in italics, and suggesting that I do it deliberately, don't once consider that I try and contribute, I mean why on earth would I want to do that. You were rude, and surprised when you got a reaction, well I don't tolerate crap. If you block me I'll just create another account, so, do your worst. --HadzTalk 21:47, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
  • There is no need for pointless dramatics here, but there is an urgent need for you to read Wikipedia:Image use policy, which link has been provided for you several times above. "Falsely" was emphasised to indicate that the images are not actually GFDL, in which case there would have been no copyright violation. I do not know whether and did not imply that you mistagged the images out of malice or for any other reason, and if you clean them up in the 23 or so hours that remain, I do not care. Sandstein 21:55, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Im not being dramatic, im just saying don't lecture me, when your not perfect yourself. I don't know how to change the tags, sorry --HadzTalk 21:59, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
      • I will continue to lecture you on our policies until you start getting your act together here, or until you end up blocked. If you don't know how to change the tags, read the instructions at Wikipedia:Image use policy and particularly WP:TAG. Put the correct tag on each and every image, and indicate the image's source (where is it from?) precisely, with a weblink if necessary. For fair use images, you must provide a fair use rationale for each and every use of the image. Read Help:Image_page#Fair_use_rationale about how to do that. Sandstein 22:14, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:YodaPalpsduel.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:YodaPalpsduel.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Thanks for uploading Image:Zuckuss_Rookies.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Fair use rationale for Image:J67iu.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:J67iu.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Rebelguys2 talk 17:54, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

More image action requiredEdit

You are not yet done cleaning up after the mess of images you produced. As you will see from the above messages, the images now labeled as unfree are mostly not used in any articles, and they still lack any source. By source I mean: the book and page number they were published in, or the website from they were originally downloaded (i.e., not Wookieepedia).

You must remedy this or you must tag these images for deletion by adding the {{db-author}} tag to them.

You are responsible for uploading these images without reading our image use policy first. Now you are responsible for fixing them. I am extending your deadline for complying with our image use policy, as outlined above, by another 24 hours as of this message. If you do not comply, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

Other sites that copy wikipediaEdit

Yes I know it is pathetic how many sites such as answers.com copy everything to the very word but it isn't copywright because wikipedia is supposed to be freely distributable remember.The fact that other istes are now copying us shows how prominent wikipedia has become. Type in millions of different words on google and wikipedia always appears in the top 3 or four more often than not first or second, -this in turn attracts more people who see the greatness of the site and then continues to expand at an increasing rate!!!

Copyright violationEdit

You copied and pasted material from the Encyclopaedia Britannica into our article on The Holocaust on April 9. [1] See the EB article here. This was a copyright violation. If you've done this to any other article, I'd be grateful if you'd point it out, as it will save me time. I'm going to block this account in the meantime in case the plagiarism continues elsewhere; I'll be willing to unblock if you can give an assurance that this won't happen again.

Request reason:

Nobody told me that Encyclopedia was a copyrighted source and even if it is no reason for an "indefinite block"; thats bloody crazy!

Decline reason:

No, you are blocked because it is apparent from this talk page that you don't care about violating copyrights, even after receiving very many warnings about it, and because you have not cleaned up the copyright mess you produced. — Sandstein 21:47, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Missing image Image:Football pitch metric.svgEdit

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Football pitch metric.svg, by Strangerer, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Football pitch metric.svg is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:Football pitch metric.svg, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. This bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Image:Football pitch metric.svg itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. Thanks. --Android Mouse Bot 2 15:14, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Bounty hunter character infoboxEdit

A tag has been placed on Template:Bounty hunter character infobox requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

WikiProject Judaism NewsletterEdit

Now with 200% more Jewishness!
Yes, folks, we're moving on up. This newsletter is now the newsletter for both WikiProject Judaism, WikiProject Jewish History, and WikiProject Kabbalah. In the future, I may split them, but for now I think we'll be just fine with one. As always, any questions or comments should be directed to me, L'Aquatique.

A Special Dispatch
Just a note, not aimed at anyone in particular. By order of the administrative cabal, it is officially not cool (and possibly dickish) to call someone an anti-semite when they aren't being anti-semitic. Anti-semitic is a very charged word, and it's important only to use it when you're absolutely sure it applies, lest it become the subject of a Godwin-esque law. Remember Hanlon's Razor: never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
In the News

  • A new class on the importance scale has been added- C Class- which covers articles better than start but not quite to B Class yet. It is up to the WikiProjects to decide whether to adopt them or not. Currently, there has been little discussion within our Projects, so if you feel strongly either way be sure to note so at your Project[s].
  • There is a proposal to reword the section on NPOV regarding religious articles. Please see Wikipedia_talk:NPOV#Religion section - Disputes between historians or scientists and religious_views to weigh in.
  • Thanks largely to the efforts of Xyz7890, a new navbox has come into being featuring Halakha topics. See: Template talk:Halakha to join in the conversation about how it can best be improved.

To Do

  • The Simple English Wikipedia is beginning a project of creating and improving articles related to religion, including Judaism. At the present time, volunteers are needed to propose our most important subjects for articles to be created. The official working list is here and a more extended list is here. If you are unsure of proper topics, you might try checking our lists of top importance level articles: Judaism and Jewish History. (WikiProject Kabbalah currently doesn't have such a list)
  • [Simple English] WikiProject Christianity is considering running a monthly drive wherein two or three top importance articles from English Wikipedia are simplified and moved over to S.E. They have extended an offer to work with us in creating a similar project for Judaism related articles. For questions or volunteer opportunities, please contact User:John Carter.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah is in dire need of an article rating system for quality and importance. If you are familiar with that system and have some time on your hands, please create one. It could also use some infoboxes...

"Censorship" of names of G-d
There is an interesting discussion currently taking place regarding whether or not it is acceptable to censor (i.e. G-d, HaShem->YodHey) names of G-d in articles to protect Jews who may be reading or editing the article. You can weigh in here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Judaism#Yahweh.

Article Cleanup Lists
User:B. Wolterding has generously offered us use of his bot to generate lists that show which articles of ours are tagged for cleanup. You can read more about this service here: User:B._Wolterding/Cleanup_listings and if you would like to take him up on his offer, contact him on his talk page.

In the News

  • There is a collaboration drive to get Holocaust in Lithuania to good article status. For information about how you can help, see the talk page or contact User:Piotrus.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah's only Featured and Good articles have been removed from the WikiProject, on the grounds that neither article (Diane Keaton and David Beckham, respectively) actually mention the subject's affiliation with Kabbalah. If you have sourced information linking either of these people to Kabbalah, please add it so the articles can be returned to the WikiProject.
  • After a rather heated discussion, there are now two barnstars for use by the Jewish WikiProjects, {{The Jewish Barnstar}} and {{The New Jewish Barnstar}}, and you can choose which one you would like to use.. Remember: barnstars are for rewarding users who are doing good work on the project or on Judaism, Jewish History, or Kabbalah articles, and anyone can give anyone else a barnstar. If you see a user who you thinks deserves a thank you, give them a barnstar!

To Do/Help Requests

  • If you have some spare time on your hands, we could use an article about a Kabbalah scholar named Moshe Idel. According to HG there are quite a few sources easily available, you can contact him if you have questions. Be sure to nominate it for DYK if the finished article is eligible.
  • The folks at Shimon Peres need some assistance from someone familiar with both the Hebrew calendar and language to help them figure out the subject's birthday. If you can help, please see Talk:Shimon_Peres#Birthday.

New Members

New Articles

  • Bezalel Rudinsky (thanks Shirulashem!}, Jewish tartan (thanks Briangotts!), Hebrew spelling (thanks Epson291)
  • We get a lot of articles that are being created and not announced! By announcing new articles, you attract attention to them, and the more people looking and editing the better they will get. If you would like your new article to appear in the newsletter, add it here for Judaism and Kabbalah and here for Jewish History.
