Welcome!Edit

Hello, Nonstopmaximum, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of your edits have not conformed to Wikipedia's verifiability policy, and may be removed if they have not yet been. Wikipedia articles should refer only to facts and interpretations that have been stated in print or on reputable websites or other forms of media. Always remember to provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is likely to be challenged, or it may be removed. Wikipedia also has a related policy against including original research in articles. Additionally, all new biographies of living people must contain at least one reliable source.

If you are stuck and looking for help, please see the guide for citing sources or come to the new contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{help me}} before the question. Again, welcome!  Mlpearc (open channel) 23:15, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

September 2014Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to Steve Perry (musician), have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you seek consensus for certain edits by discussing the matter on the article's talk page. Thank you. Mlpearc (open channel) 23:15, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

License tagging for File:ToneLoc.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:ToneLoc.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 12:05, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Reddiamond.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Reddiamond.jpg, which you've attributed to https://www.flickr.com/photos/reddiamondtea/5793699090/. 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. Diannaa (talk) 21:43, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Draft:The Cisco Kid (song) concernEdit

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Draft:The Cisco Kid (song), a page you created, has not been edited in 6 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

If the deletion has already occured, instructions on how you may be able to retrieve it are available at WP:REFUND/G13.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 01:36, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:The Cisco Kid (song)Edit

 

Hello, Nonstopmaximum. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "The Cisco Kid".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing.   samtar {t} 18:43, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

WP:UGCEdit

Hi, regarding your edits here, though you clearly meant well, neither WikiProject Television nor WikiProject Film have an interest in user ratings on user-generated sites like IMDb or TV.com. User-generated content of any sort is not within the interest of the greater Wikipedia community, frankly, as anyone with an internet connection can game these sites, etc. Typically only CinemaScore is considered a reliable indicator of audience response for films. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:56, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

January 2018Edit

  Please do not add or change content, as you did at Matthew Ridgway, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Chris Troutman (talk) 01:05, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

File:White Lines Melle Mel.jpgEdit

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:11, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

June 2018Edit

  Please refrain from changing genres, as you did to I Never Cry, without providing a source or establishing a consensus on the article's talk page first. Genre changes to suit your own point of view are considered disruptive. Thank you. SummerPhDv2.0 06:09, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Go Your Own WayEdit

You also need consensus for genre changes. - FlightTime (open channel) 18:20, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

At the discussion on FlightTime's talk page, you questioned my assessment that iTunes genres are assigned by an algorithm. While I believe this is correct, the source you cited in this case was actually Pandora. Pandora uses the Music Genome Project. That project has one musician listen to each song and mark off individual characteristics of the song (e.g., gender of lead vocalist, level of distortion on the electric guitar, type of background vocals, etc.). One song in ten has a second musician listen to it, in an attempt to establish consistency. An algorithm then converts those characteristics into genres (and related phrases). I do not see how that passes WP:IRS.
Before going any further on this, please address my concern about your editing here. - SummerPhDv2.0 05:37, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

June 2018Edit

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to change genres without discussion or sources, as you did at Muscles (album), you may be blocked from editing. This is not "rearranging" genres. There are clearly changes. SummerPhDv2.0 17:13, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

January 2019Edit

  Hello, I'm SummerPhDv2.0. I noticed that you added or changed content in an article, Take My Breath Away, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so. If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. A blog is not a reliable source.
