Good catch on my faux pas on userfying this...In NP Patrolling, I saw the article name, user name, and came to the wrong conclusion. My apologies, and thanks for covering my six. Akradecki 19:00, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Poppy quarter imageEdit

I'll look for a free image. In the meantime, hold off on any deletion action. Even better, if you know of a free image, replace this one and ask the administrators to delete/hide-from-public-view the previous versions. davidwr 09f9(talk) 17:13, 7 May 2007 (UTC) I also dispute the validity of the copyright of "mere photos" of works of art, including coins. The US Supreme Court has ruled that simple photos of public-domain artwork does not entitle the photographer to any copyright protections. IANAL but the same logic should apply to works that are under copyright: The original copyright, if any, remains intact, but the photograph does not enjoy any additional copyright protection. AFAIK, coins are either in the public domain, copyrighted by the country or mint that makes them, or by the original designer. davidwr 09f9(talk) 17:29, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Hi David, I flagged it because I believe that the photographer may have copyright on the image, not the coin itself. IANAL either, so it's probably best for others here at Wikipedia to pass judgement when they review it. You should make your arguments for keeping the image on the talk page of the image, so that they will be seen when the image is reviewed. Rawr 17:53, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Telus Article - History SectionEdit

I have removed, for the 2nd time, this unsourced paragraph. Simply adding it back with a "citation needed" tag is inappropriate. The most basic of Wiki policies is you must quote a valid source when adding information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Markbaker2 (talkcontribs) 00:21, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Don DaviesEdit

WP:TCREEP. Any article that has both should have the succession box removed, rather than adding it to new ones. The only reason some articles have both is that succession boxes were being used before the current infobox template was developed, and in some cases people simply added the infobox without removing the older style of template.

HMS BlossomEdit

Nice work on HMS Blossom (1806). There was in fact a gunboat HMS Blossom of 1856, so I've asked User:Benea to do a ship index page at HMS Blossom and have moved your text to its current article name. I've also been through and changed all the links I could find. In future, I would recommend placing ship articles under "HMS Nonsuch (1999)" rather than "HMS Nonsuch" since it is far less work to change all the links if you subsequently find that it wasn't the only use of the name. Nevertheless, more power to your elbow. Yours, Shem (talk) 14:39, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

I reverted some vandalism to your user page and warned the vandal. I went back and saw some more, and then I realized that you wanted the vandalism to be there. You can always undo my edit if you want. Sorry. Griffinofwales (talk) 18:03, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of $20,000 banknotesEdit

 

The article List of $20,000 banknotes has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

An arbitrary and, in my view, pointless criterion, resulting in a list with only 2 entries (so far at least)

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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.
