List of Foxtel ChannelsEdit

Hello. where you the author of "List of Foxtel Channels" and "List of Austar channels}? Someone has taken it upon themselves to delete those two articles and they where invaluable as a reference and it's difficult to find the information you provided outside of the country (I am in the US) can you undelete them? The user who deleted your pages decided to delete all similar pages from Wikipedia because I don't know..boredom? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.229.11.150 (talk) 17:40, 3 December 2012 (UTC)


Your edits to AustraliaEdit

hello thanks for the useless comment about the use of "incumbent". If you look at the history it was added by another admin user i was just trying to keep what he had put on the page. If you are admin i think you should lock the page and leave it as kevin rudd "incumbent". cheers —Preceding unsigned comment added by L.Wadsworth (talkcontribs) 12:36, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank God you protected the bloody thing. Biofoundationsoflanguage (talk) 12:41, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Shaun_Micallef_-_Thank_God_You're_Here.jpgEdit

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Shaun_Micallef_-_Thank_God_You're_Here.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Garion96 (talk) 10:06, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Happy Birthday!Edit

It would appear to be your 23rd birthday, either today or yesterday. Assuming I'm right, happy birthday! Ral315 (talk) 05:24, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Strangely, I came across it because I visited your userpage, saw that it said you were 22, and thought, "I wonder when his birthday is?". I looked at your userpage history, and was shocked to see that your birthday was today -- I truly had no idea when it was. Ral315 (talk) 05:48, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations. All further questions should be directed to my publicist. Ral315 (talk) 05:52, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Map of Western AustraliaEdit

A tag has been placed on Template:Map of Western Australia requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. 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>).

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 19:53, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

PleaseEdit

You know, you could explain what was up on the talk page. The stuff you removed was so innocuous I assumed it was a mistake. I'd appreciate if you could just explain what was going on without immediately resorting to threats. Not very civil.—Chowbok 17:31, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Nancy CartwrightEdit

What specifically did the publicist complain about? Was it just the stuff removed in this edit or does it include the stuff removed here? Some of the content removed in the last edit includes all mentions of scientology, and that part of the article is sourced. -- Scorpion0422 03:39, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Good cleanup at the lindy/dingo case of our decade - cheers SatuSuro 02:30, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Mark,

I work for Daniel Hannan and he has asked me to update some of the info on his page. I'd give you the Parlaiment email as proof, but as this is a public forum I dont think this would be wise. I'm rather new to this Wki thing and I am not sure how you are meant to get a response to me or how I can send you a private message with the email address. Either way, I need access and would appreciate it if you wrote how we can go about this on your wall. Am I right in understanding, that as of this moment the only persion that can alter stuff on Dan's wall are you and Dan?

Thank you very much for your time.

Euro precedence on ITNEdit

The Euro is at near all-time highs against currencies other than the dollar, including the pound sterling. Also your rearranged sentence doesn't take account of the fact that the psychological value of €1 > $1.50 has been reached.

I have changed it back for now.

zoney talk 11:07, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree, I was surprised that it appeared there. It could even be removed if no-one objected. However, at least it means ITN isn't entirely predictable with what shows up there. There are altogether too many people who think ITN is supposed to be the five most important news stories according to Wikipedia. Of course, the title "In the news" isn't very explanatory. zoney talk 11:53, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Daniel Hannan MEPEdit

Please see Talk:Daniel Hannan#Page protection. Thanks, Harris Morgan 23:22, 28 February 2008 (UTC).

Orlando FigesEdit

Could you please reconsider the indefinite protection of article Orlando Figes? There are less than 100 edits in the history of this article, and I did not see a significant RR war there. If anything goes wrong, it would be easy to protect it again. Thank you.Biophys (talk) 04:41, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Riana's request for bureaucratshipEdit

Amaryllis stamens aka.jpg

Dear Mark, thank you for taking part in my RfB. As you may know, it was not passed by bureaucrats.
I would, however, like to thank you for taking the time to voice your support, despite concerns cited by the opposition. Although RfA/B isn't really about a person, but more about the community, I was deeply touched and honoured by the outpouring of support and interest in the discussion. I can only hope that you don't feel your opinion was not considered enough - bureaucrats have to give everyone's thoughts weight.
I also hope that the results of this RfB lead to some change in the way we approach RfBs, and some thought about whether long-entrenched standards are a good thing in our growing and increasingly heterogenous community.
I remain eager to serve you as an administrator and as an editor. If at any point you see something problematic in my actions, please do not hesitate to call me out. ~ Riana 12:44, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

OK, I'll send you something your browser will be able to handle better:
O hai! Get Firefox. ~ Riana 01:06, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Your edits on the ITNEdit

Please go to Wikipedia:In the news section on the Main Page/Candidates‎ and explain why you added the blurb on Rahho, despite there not being a consensus to put it up. We are trying to avoid drive-by admins, like yourself here, so I propose you take it of the itn, post your comments, and wait till there is a larger consensus. --Plasma Twa 2 (talk) 18:51, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Drive-by admin is not my phrase, and remember this is not about how much support it has now, but how much support it had when you first added it. Gaining a strong consensus is what keeps us from having huge arguements over items - it doesn't seem that there will be one over this one now, but that does not mean it should be ignored. There have been many arguements over why a majority-supported article isn't on, and vice versa. It common sense to wait more then six hours to put something up.
Your "courtesy extended to the non-admins to express their views" statement pretty much makes you a hypocrite. Telling me not to express authority when you're cleary doing it right now? Rich. The item has enough support to go on now, but two other users agreed with me that you added it too quickly, while another commented on you adding it up despite consensus. I don't want blood to be exchanged over this, but remember to wait until there is a larger consensus to avoid this in the future. --Plasma Twa 2 (talk) 07:04, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

DYKEdit

Updated DYK query On 19 March, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Victoria Dam, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.
--Gatoclass (talk) 08:56, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Um, so what do you think I did?Edit

You state quite strongly that you are shocked by my misjudgment. Could you please go into more detail what you feel I have misjudged? That might be quite useful if I might want to prevent such shock in future. --Kim Bruning (talk) 03:19, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

<scratches head> Maybe I don't think in such complicated ways with respect to security. If we see someone breach confidentiality, I think it is only prudent that we remove access to privileged information.
As we are all volunteers, we share collective responsibility.
From my perspective, we are already closing the barn door when the horse has already bolted, but still it is a wise gesture to make.
To stretch the metaphor slightly: are you advocating we leave all other barn doors open until those horses have escaped too?
--Kim Bruning (talk) 06:46, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
Just to expand on that slightly: I think that the fundamental requirement for the channel is that people need to be able to handle privileged information responsibly, as it is intended as a location for foundation and OTRS and etc to communicate with trusted people from en.wikipedia. This is also why it is a closed channel you see. It's not a clubhouse for admins, or at least it was never intended to be. --Kim Bruning (talk) 07:08, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Home and AwayEdit

Can't you find some sources for them though? If you care about the articles you could, you know they all exist, and deleting ones such as Sally, Alf, and other long term characters is just pointless when poeple have gone to the trouble of writing them. Raintheone (talk) 18:49, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

My name is Peter and you asked me on the 1st of April why i change the number of seasons from 21 to 20. To do this because home and away started in 1988. Since it is 2008 (20 years later) is has got to be on its 20th season. Also the website on www.seven.com.au/homeandaway says "celebreating the 20th year of home and away" if i am mistaken please tell me thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.229.192.93 (talk) 11:26, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:05494 HK2731 122 420lo.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:05494 HK2731 122 420lo.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. The following images also have this problem:

  • If I made a mistake uploading the subject image, it was an honest mistake. Focus was a free newspaper distributed in Ottawa in 1984 It also died that same year and exists no more. It would be a reasonable assumption it would fall within the public domain category.

DoDaCanaDa (talk) 04:01, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Fair enough Mark. My mistake. I'm sorry for the confusion. I still know the author. What is the tag and procedure when I have his permission to post the images?

DoDaCanaDa (talk) 04:33, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the info. I don't think I'll upload any more images until I consult with the creator of the article, a WikipediA Administrator. I think he is somewhat overwhelmed with the volume of information I provided not yet in the Article and it is best I give him space. He has the experience in these things. I don't.

Thank you very much for your response. No, it's not a disappointment, it's okay and expected.

ActuallyEdit

the first 5 citations in the article actually specify 8:00 PM as the time.

However, the sources I added support the claim that "some sources did say it would be 8:08 PM instead of 8:00." I even thought that at first. ViperSnake151 14:59, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Re Carly LuciniEdit

Hi, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but you're leaving the article with nothing in it. That seems rash and unnecessary. I didnt write the article, and it's been a long time since I saw the first years of Home and Away, but that plot summary appeqars to be accurate to me, and it can all be sourced directly to the soap. Is there any part of the information there that you feel is incorrect? If so, it would be more appropritate to remove those parts instead of the entire lot. As one of the original characters, Carly is more notable than most. There are a lot of books, old articles etc covering the early soap material.GunGagdinMoan 18:06, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Operation Mobilisation pageEdit

Hi Mark, I've been looking at the situation you reported for the Operation Mobilisation page and have a replacement text with citations from a new book on the history of the organisation. I haven't dealt with copyright violation stuff on Wikipedia before and don't quite know how to proceed. The text on the copyright infringement page seems to relate more to when the entire article is in violation, rather than what you reported which was a clearly identifiable section (History section). Is it allowable for me to revert back to the last full version then delete the offending section and insert the new section? How do I alert the admins, if that's what I need to do? I realise that time is of the essence, but don't want to break protocol here. Cheers 82.9.199.44 (talk) 11:08, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Bankwest TowerEdit

"The bank, which was at the time wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia, consulted then-Premier Brian Burke in deciding whether to invest in the project." Its a great pity we can't say or speculate on what probably happened. I wonder if the WA Inc records commented on a likely phone call from Burke to Fischer. My personal recollection at the time was that the powers within the bank were livid that as well as suddenly having become reluctant property developers, they'd been locked into a long-term lease which was of little of no value to it. I was a peon there. –Moondyne 14:09, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Whilst it's quite likely you'll have heard this news on the grapevine, in your email inbox, or even in person - I thought that it was sufficiently exciting to warrant giving each of you a 'new messages' orange bar! This particular orange bar has been brought to you to let you know that Wikimedia Australia is now open for members!

I'm not on the committee or anything, and that's where the credit is due in getting everything to this point, but I think it would be absolutely fantastic for folks who wish to support the australian wiki community, to go ahead and sign up - we're quite likely to be the world's fatest growing chapter at the moment! Join Us :-)

Here's a little more about membership, and the mailing list in particular is well worth signing up to as well, and is a good forum to get answers to any questions answered, or to share any ideas.

Speedy deletion of Image:Australian embassy bombing flag.jpgEdit

Ambox warning pn.svg
A tag has been placed on Image:Australian embassy bombing flag.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Australian embassy bombing flag.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Re User BehaviorEdit

Re a certain user, there's also issues of removing info from several pages to prove a point when irked over an edit instead of discussing the issue. Just thought I'd mention it here (I'm not comfortable on his talk page), since I've come across him adding provably false info, strange unsourced claims, or waging edit wars on a number of entertainment pages over recent months. There's a profane blow-up here (which the anonymous user he assumes is someone else's sock-puppet deleted part of) related to Amblin; I checked the only source he's cited and, at least in the YouTube copy, there's no mention whatsoever matching the one he claims (possibly going on a wonky memory, which can happen to the best of us; possibly not, since in the past he has added deliberate, proven misinformation to IMDb and used it as evidence on Wikipedia, and vice versa, mostly pertaining to rumors or Dave the Barbarian). His behavior can't really be put down to a one-time lapse, since it happens constantly, and the blanking of his own talk page to get people to "quit complaining" is in the same league. Just for the record, anyway, though you probably noticed it already and it may not make a difference as far as whether he's gone too far yet. I'm probably expending too much energy on this anyway, as only an occasional Wikipedia editor, but this individual makes me nervous. -- Aleal (talk) 22:17, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

I just noticed this users return too. I understand shortening the block due to assuming good faith about his declaration to be more civil(ised), but all his initial edits since the block expired have been the same disruptive behaviour as before, on the same pages. He undertook extremely WP:Pointy distuptive edits at List of science fiction themes (reverted, but not by me), and continues to ignore the consensus we are trying to build on the talk page, resorting to ALL CAPS SHOUTING, and blaming me for forcing him into destroying the article rather than abide by consensus. Also already has vandalism warnings on his talk page due to edits at List of members of the WWE Hall of Fame. :-(.
Unfortunately, i think any limited period block is only going to make him act even more aggresively, as he seems to feel he is in a personal war with other editors. I'll admit to feeling relief when the block was indefinite - he just doesn't seem to be learning, no matter how many people talk with him. If not an indef block, then there is some kind of probation that can be used? Yobmod (talk) 09:51, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Just so you know, he got blocked for breaking 3RR, and replying to the block with insulting use of the F word, so it seems to be settled now. Thanks for before though.Yobmod (talk) 14:18, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

[POINT OF VIEW]Edit

Another innovation pioneered on 96FM in 1988 was the 'Input Line' 2211296. Effectively just a humble answering machine taking listener comments, opinions and feedback. The best of these responses were then played back on-air as a segment. Put simply the input line gave the public the chance to speak freely about what they thought about 96fm.

Sadly, the '96fm input line' has long since been discontinued.

Equally sad is not only the input line passing into fond memory, but now in 2009 vehicles like wikipedia are being censored by somebody who is obviously connected to the station.

Now the page has been protected from anonymous edits.

Whilst it is acknowleged that wikipedia is an online encyclopedia and thereby should be factual. When writing about historical events (some now more than 20 years ago) the obvious comparison will be made against todays outcomes.

Wikipedia is not a corporate website designed to promote the station and its current compliment of staff. Nor should it be used to defame individuals. However removing listed URLs from the ASX concerning a public announcement made to the market is sanitising the editorial content to suit the management's purpose.

96fm is a much loved part of the Perth culture. However if it wants to promote its own agenda it should use its own website to do so. If current station employees wish to make alterations to editorial content of wikipedia they should do so publicly by declaring their employment. They should also declare if they are acting autonomously or under instruction from the management of Fairfax Media.

Does Fairfax really think that getting users to log in to wikipedia as 'sexxyfatchick69' or any other username will prevent users & readers from having an opinion or expressing that opinion?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.230.217.45 (talk) 08:23, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Narrows Bridge (Perth)Edit

The article Narrows Bridge (Perth) you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. It hasn't failed because it's basically a good article, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within seven days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Narrows Bridge (Perth) for things needed to be addressed. Arsenikk (talk) 19:56, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Bravo!Edit

. . .for your prodigious work on Emu Brewery! It raised a couple of idle thoughts. One: Have you considered using a small-template page-number system for footnotes? Eg, like the one I found and used in updating the Studebaker article where page numbers are both important and frequent. Two: The "new" (Canning Vale) Swan Brewery is not yet accorded reasonable WP coverage. Its instigator Lloyd Zampatti moved mountains to make it a fully automated plant, a veritable wonder of the world. Its takeover by Alan Bond linked it into the ruinous fantasies of WA Inc, but even the Kiwi ownership has probably not changed the system much. Cheers Bjenks (talk) 03:19, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Boat Quay.jpgEdit

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Boat Quay.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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 16:18, 25 April 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Finavon (talk) 16:18, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

(from User talk:Finavon):

It took a bit of hunting but I found the following in relation to the above image:

  • It was uploaded by User:MichaelJanich as File:Boat quay.jpg in February 2003
  • It wasn't tagged for copyright by the uploader
  • I re-uploaded it under its present name to fix the capitalisation late in 2003, and (wrongly) marked it as GFDL
  • Years later, the original image got tagged as GFDL-presumed
  • In 2007 it got tagged for deletion for not having enough license information, at which point the original uploader tagged it GFDL-self
  • Despite this, it still got deleted.

Anyway, it seems to me that we have enough information/evidence to keep the image and mark it as GFDL-author referring to the original uploader. However, if you think it's a bit iffy, feel free to delete it. I'm sure there are much better free photos of Boat Quay out there which can replace it. - Mark 01:45, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for sorting that. As you say it is not a high quality image (File:Boat quay singapore cbd.JPG is better), but I have tried to improve it before moving to Commons. - Finavon (talk) 07:32, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

IP 220.237.74.225Edit

Hi, i noticed you blocked IP 210.49.251.226 in the past, as a known sock-IP shown by checkuser. He has returned to List of science fiction themes to revert to a non-consensus version, and also to WWE Hall of Fame, but with a new IP: 220.237.74.225. He is pretending to not be user:AKR619 (the sockmaster), but the editing pattern is obvious. His edits to these article already earned him more than one indefinate block in the past, and since the indef, his IP was warned and blocked a few times, so seems incorrigible.

I think it is so obivous that a checkuser is not needed, but i have never requested one before - I left a msg at the lask checkuser for his opinion (user:Dominic). Any attention you could give here would be great. ThanksYobMod 11:09, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Happy Birthday!Edit

MSU InterviewEdit

Dear Mark,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

File permission problem with File:East Perth.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:East Perth.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 07:32, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivityEdit

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivityEdit

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.
