Nice work! BencherliteTalk 08:49, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Apology for my incivilityEdit

The other day the stress got to me, I lost it, I ranted publicly on the 9/11ct arbitration evidence page. I ranted, among other things, about you. There's no excuse for that. While I find some of the things you do hard to understand, I don't know what you are really like as a person because I have never met you. Therefore I fully accept that I should, as I have been strictly instructed to do, stick to the facts and not make inferences about people's motives. I am very sorry for being so uncivil towards you. ireneshusband (talk) 22:25, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Extraneous hooplaEdit

I noticed you referring to this on Wikback as your new favourite phrase. If you're curious, I've done a bit of research on the expression and have posted it on my user page as a modified "Did you know." It's been around longer than I thought. Risker (talk) 06:06, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

I read it, that's great! There's something about that phrase that just kills me. RxS (talk) 04:18, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

RfA questionEdit

What did you mean in your support of EyeSerene's RfA? I think I'm missing something... Tan | 39 00:44, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/September 11 conspiracy theoriesEdit

This arbitration case has been closed and the final decision is available at the link above. Further to this, any uninvolved administrator may, on his or her own discretion, "impose sanctions on any editor working in the area of conflict (defined as articles which relate to the events of September 11, broadly interpreted) if, despite being warned, that editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process." The full remedy is located here.

My RFA has closedEdit

My RFA that you weighed in on earlier has closed as no consensus to promote, at a final tally of 120/47/13. I thank you for your feedback and comments there, and I'm going to be considering all the various advice and comments presented. I might end up at RFA again some day, or not. If you see me there again in the future, perhaps you might consider a Support !vote. If not, not, and no hard feelings. The pen is still mightier than the mop! See you around, and thanks again.

RfB CommentsEdit

Hi. I'm responding here as I have brought this point a few times on the page already, and there is no point bringing it there again, it is getting long enough already :). There is case precedent for running two months post a prior RfB (successfully, and for the THIRD time I might add) IF the issue involved was not one of trust, but of the community wanting to see more RfA involvement. Please see Wikipedia:Requests for bureaucratship/Redux 3. Thanks -- Avi (talk) 11:50, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

ED in shock siteEdit

I've readded ED to shock site as while the refs never use the word "shock site" (and for that matter, neither do the Rotten.com refs, for example), but they make it clear that the site hosts offensive material. And though this is original research, I would like to point out that the site clearly is a shock site. The images it hosts alone (including many images from other sites that are listed in the article as shock sites) are enough to identify it as such, and this doesn't even touch on the textual content. A shock site (based on the sites that the article lists as shock sites) doesn't have to be a site that is designed in such a way as to trick people to going to it and viewing offensive content. Orgerish.com is an example of such a site. It is designated as a shock site simply because it hosts offensive content, even though it is not designed in any way so as to trick people into viewing it.--Urban Rose 15:16, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

EDEdit

Many of the articles at ED are simply satire but some of them exist solely for the purpose of offending people. For example, there is an article called "Offended" (which I do NOT recommend that ANYONE view by the way) that I had the displeasure of seeing which is essentially just a collection of gross shock images. You mention that there are many sites which feature disturbing content which are not shock sites. On the other hand, that doesn't mean that a site which hosts shocking content becomes exempt from "shock site status" simply because it also contains satire.--Urban Rose 18:40, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Fast!Edit

That was quick!...Thanks!--MONGO 16:07, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Rfb participation thanksEdit

Hello, RxS.

I wanted to personally thank you for taking part in the project-wide discussions regarding my candidacy for bureaucratship. After bureaucratic discussion, the bureaucrats decided that there was sufficient significant and varied opposition to my candidacy, and thus no consensus to promote. Although personally disappointed, I both understand and respect their decision, especially in light of historical conservatism the project has had when selecting its bureaucrats. As you felt the need to oppose my candidacy, I would appreciate any particular thoughts or advice you may have as to what flaws in my candidacy you perceived and how you feel they may be addressed. Once again, thank you for your participation. -- Avi (talk) 20:51, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

9/11 AttacksEdit

Regarding the slight modification I did to the 9/11 article, can you explain to me how it is nonsense? It is a legitimate hypothesis that some members of government one way or another carried out the attacks for different legitimate reasons. I think that the constant blaming of Al-Queda for the attacks is nonsense. - Magicman710 —Preceding comment was added at 03:41, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Your redirect of "research program" to "research"Edit

Imre Lakatos is a philosopher of science famous for his discussion of "research programs". There are probably many people who will have trouble remembering that name and search for research program, hoping to find something about it. If it is going to be redirected to "research" it may as well not even be a redirect. ImpIn | (t - c) 03:45, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Cheers for your support! I'm obviously disappointed, but there was lots of good constructive criticism from the process which I'm going to take on board. And who knows, after a few months after I may very well be successful. Cheers! Mark t young (talk) 20:52, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

terroristsEdit

I have replied on the articles talk page, and reverted your revert..no offence meant.

On a personal note, yes they were terrorists, but the same could/should be said of the IRA, and maybe even Nelson Mandela.. what made a lot of sense in the link i gave in the articles talk page were words along the lines of " don't try to lead people, put the facts, and let people make their own minds up, based on the facts." and I think the vast majority already know they were terrorists, and the article will just confirm that Sennen goroshi (talk) 14:13, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

bullshitEdit

I really wanted this to remain civil, that is why I put a message on your talk page initially, after checking the edit summaries, I was a little suprised to find your comment regarding my use of the word bullshit. What makes you think I was talking about your edits, when using the term bullshit, I think you will find quite a few edits between your comment and my use of the word bullshit. I honestly find the use of the term bullshit to be acceptable, and if you look at the order of the edits, it seems obvious that it was not directed towards you.

Tonight's episode "Instant Reverting, Internet Style"Edit

Hi, Mrs. Love (or Mr. Love). See the talk page of the September 11 article. There are comments there. You just reverted without discussion. Presumptive (talk) 04:47, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Ugh.Edit

I thought you should be properly notified.[1] Ice Cold Beer (talk) 05:02, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I am shocked to learn you are an admin. I though an admin would act like a great representative, pillar of society, open to discussion, etc.

Why not let us think of 12 different introductory sentences and pick the best one? I am sure we can improve WP! Presumptive (talk) 05:18, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Because you're demanding a change under false assertions. If you came a long and said, yuck that first sentence is awkward let's fix it that'd be one thing. But you're demanding a change because of a claim that it's original research which is just flat out wrong. RxS (talk) 05:21, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

It is very subtle OR, not overt OR. It is also bad prose. Either way, it can be improved. I am not suggesting we change it to "those filthy terrorist" or "those freedom fighters". I am just seeking better prose.

But you are an admin, so "yes, sir!". I will endeavor to listen to you now that I know you are an admin. Presumptive (talk) 05:28, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Me being an admin has exactly zero to do with it. I never used nor threatened to use any admin powers here. I never mentioned the fact that I'm an admin, in fact it seems you just found out that I was one so I couldn't have been lording it over you too awfully much. RxS (talk) 05:33, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Knock it off, Presumptive. RxS has not even come close to threatening you with admin action. This attack on his character and his administratorship is completely unwarranted. Ice Cold Beer (talk) 05:41, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

RFA ThanksEdit

Thank you for participating in my RfA, Rx StrangeLove!
I am grateful for your kind words and confidence: My RfA passed by a count of 64/3/3, so I am now an administrator! Of course, I plan to conduct my adminship in service of the community, so I believe the community has a right to revoke that privilege at any time. Thus, I will be open for recall under reasonable circumstances. If you have any advice, complaints, or concerns for me, please let me know. Thanks again! Okiefromokla questions? 21:40, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

RfAEdit

I wouldn't take controversial admin actions, so you don't need to worry about that. See my answer to question 18, also my user page for my views on that. Controversial admin actions represent everything I think is wrong with the state of adminship on the project. Everyking (talk) 03:36, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Those attitudes are one reason why I supported in the first place. So, I changed back to support because I believe you. My concern is that although WR is a pretty silly place, you have a enough supporters there that would show up in support of any admin action you might take. Instant blood bath. I've considered posting there but I don't trust their privacy protection further than I could throw my Jeep. Anyway, try and keep it down to a dull roar and we'll be good.

al-Qaeda membershipEdit

I wanted to clarify my views without sidetracking the discussion. My problem with the term "member" is that there's no real standard of membership. No uniform, no initiation process, nothing like what members of Abu Nidal went through. Not everyone who went through an AQ training camp can be considered a member, and there are a lot of groups that claim inspiration by al-Qaeda but have no formal contacts with anyone in the group. I'm just uncomfortable with applying the label of member to anyone who isn't either top leadership, or in the 055 Brigade. And by referring to AQ as nebulous, I'm just referring to their strategy of ideological infection/inspiration, rather than the outright attacks of the 1990s. I'm certainly not in the "AQ is a CIA/Cheney/Mossad/Reptilian invention!!!" crowd. I'm pretty sure you and I see eye-to-eye on most other issues in this article. Cheers! // Chris (complaints)(contribs) 18:06, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

I can see your point about the word member, but I don't want to water down the fact that they were acting as a direct hand of al-Qaeda and by their direction. I suppose we could drop the whole thing and just say the attacks were conducted al-Qaeda. But I do want to see a pretty tight/direct linking between the hijackers and al-Qaeda because in the real world there was. If these articles weren't under constant attack by certain quarters things like this wouldn't matter so much...but there it is I guess. RxS (talk) 14:47, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

User:Criminalresponsibility's discussion on Talk:September 11 attacksEdit

Do you mind unarchiving the section or me adding some comments to it? I understand that the editor is banned, but I think he raised a valid question that deserves a direct answer (mentioning WP:POLICIES, WP:GUIDELINES and WP:COI). I was thinking something along these lines:

There are policies and guidelines. WP:COI is probably what you’re looking for. But you’ll have a tough time convincing anybody an editor belongs to an organization that’s so secretive its very existence is doubtful. The editor’s pattern of editing is not proof on its own; that would be circular logic.

— NRen2k5(TALK), 02:04, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I think if there are issues like this you should bring them to WP:COI, that conversation was going no where and keeps reoccurring. If you really want to add that just add it below the archived section I guess. But I don't see a need to reopen it...`RxS (talk) 02:14, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

At the AE page, an editor says:

Surprised to find this deleted. Did I miss a discussion of its notability. I know it had been discussed before for deletion and rejected. Could you tell me the justification?

Seemed to me that she was the daughter of a politition and had a book written by the request of her family was the only basis of any notability. It looks pretty thin to me, but if you want it restored I'll do that...I'm not married to anything. RxS (talk) 16:36, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Political parties, embarrassing members, and the lawEdit

I don't know about other countries, but in the United States, political parties are required by law and, arguably, the US and state constitutions, to let any registered voter who isn't supporting a candidate of another party or a member of another party become a member of that party and participate in the political activities of the party, including running for office. They don't have to invite you to social functions but they can't kick you out of the political party. KKK and other racist candidates have embarrassed political parties several times since the end of Jim Crow, and the only thing the party could do was withhold financial and other support, they couldn't kick the person out. In most states, those with no felony record are allowed to run for office, and in most states felons whose parole or probation is over are allowed to vote and be members of political parties. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 13:49, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:In Combo.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:In Combo.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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 20:05, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

AuthorEdit

Hi, RxS. Can you please assert authorship on File:Orch hall.jpg? This came up in remarks to delist Music of Minnesota. Elcobbola wrote, "Needs a verifiable source.

Hi...yep, that's one of mine. I went on a photo taking binge during that period and that was one. Let me know if I need to assert authorship somewhere other than here and the delist page for Music Of Minnesota. RxS (talk) 04:06, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I'm probably missing something, but my username and a link to my user page is on the page already along with a release into the public domain.

Community de-Adminship - finalization poll for the CDA proposalEdit

You are recieving this notice as you have participated in the Admin Recall discussion pages.

A poll was held on fourteen proposals, and closed on 16th November 2009. Only one proposal gained majority support - community de-adminship - and this proposal is now being finessed into a draft RFC Wikipedia talk:Community de-adminship/Draft RfC, which, if adopted, will create a new process.

After tolling up the votes within the revision proposals for CDA, it emerged that proposal 5.4 had the most support, but elements of that support remained unclear, and various comments throughout the polls needed consideration.

A finalisation poll (intended, if possible, to be one last poll before finalising the CDA proposal) has been run to;

  • gather opinion on the 'consensus margin' (what percentages, if any, have the most support) and
  • ascertain whether there is support for a 'two-phase' poll at the eventual RfC (not far off now), where CDA will finally be put to the community. Matt Lewis (talk) 01:42, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

I'd suggest a longer block; he just came off a week block. HalfShadow 03:56, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

I increased it to two right after the original block. I'll do a month if you prefer. RxS (talk) 04:08, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Two might do, though given he's continued after two blocks, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being blocked yearly like a school IP. HalfShadow 04:24, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your RfA SupportEdit

RxS - Thank for your participation and support in my recent successful RfA. Your confidence and trust in me is much appreciated.

QEdit

Hey, can I ask you why you protected User talk:Kitarora? I was going to blank the page with its invitation to the creation of nonsense articles--BTW, what weird vandalism! Drmies (talk) 16:39, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

I indef'd the user, he was putting nonsense on his talk page. I might go back and delete it but there's no point in putting too much time into it...RxS (talk) 16:42, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I understand. It's just that looking at the page gave me a headache, and if DGG is right, that redlinks invite the creation of articles, then you'll be deleting a bunch of them... Thanks! Drmies (talk) 16:44, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Taken care of, I see. Drmies (talk) 16:44, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Not really, no. It just wasn't explicitly listed (as it has to be for GA) that you yourself took it. Thanks for the prompt response! BobAmnertiopsisChatMe! 00:38, 19 December 2010 (UTC)




First of all, sorry for posting in this section, as I don't know how to create a new one. Anyway, I don't know why you repeated your message of "null edits" to me on my talk page, as I hadn't added any of the spaces to any page since your first message.

Arctic ozoneEdit

Thanks for adding the interesting "in the news" item about depletion of ozone above the Arctic. Unfortunately the wording was a bit ambiguous, as the lower temperatures involved are at an altitude of 20 km (12.4 miles) and came at the same time as record warmer temperatures at surface level generally in the Northern Hemisphere. With a bit of tweaking I think the item has now been made a bit clearer. Nonetheless, interesting news well worth reading. . . dave souza, talk 20:26, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, RxS. You asked me to comment further at AN. I've been on and off the computer as time allowed and ended up posting after the entire section had been archived. Oops! So I removed my post. You can read it here, restore it, move it—whatever you think best. (It's long but not tedious, I hope.) I think the archiving may have been a bit premature, but I don't frequent AN and am blissfully unaware of the norms. Cheers, Rivertorch (talk) 07:53, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

You CAN'T be seriousEdit

Did I create these sections with Sarah's name in them? Why not crow to those who did the nonsense you just wrote me?

You CAN'T be serious. What?? Your comment right here was so incredibly non-sensical, it's like not funny.

First...I did NOT create those sections with Sarah Palin's name on it, and whining about supposed "flubs" and "re-writing of history" etc. That's everyone else. So if that's the case, why didn't you write your weird comment to THEM? Since they're the ones who are on about this nonsense? Number two: in case you're not paying attention, this article "Paul Revere" is what's under discussion, as to Sarah's supposed "flub"... And since others have been bringing this up FIRST...I merely commented trying to balance things out a tad or two. And it's related to the article (as I made clear) about "Paul warned the British too, after he was captured." What part of any of this is unclear to you? That you would be possessed to snarl at me the junk you just did, while ignoring the other editors who have been groaning against "Sarah supporters" and whatever else? Watercolor Merger 05:31, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

It was your wall of text that I saw first, the fact that other people wrote things is off topic. You are responsible for your own edits. Talk page aren't there to balance things out. Please confine comments about Sarah Palin to the Sarah Palin talk page, and even then only when they are directly pointed at improving the article. RxS (talk) 13:22, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I rarely modify items' order (and usually see no problem when the pictured subject's blurb isn't at the top), but I've noticed that terrorism-related items tend to evoke strong feelings in this area. —David Levy 00:40, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

HandsomeFellaEdit

Just so you know, what's actually going on is a bit of an edit war; User:Dolovis has been arbitrarily moving the hockey player articles from their existing titles to unaccented "English spelling" titles, citing the "Use English" guideline; User:HandsomeFella has been following close behind him, tagging the resulting accented redirects for deletion not because they're "misspellings", but so that the articles can then be moved back to their original titles according to Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey's existing naming convention. I've asked them both to cool it, but I just thought I should let you know that what you're seeing is a rather contentious edit war over conflicting of naming conventions, not just somebody trying to delete some "misspelled" redirects. Bearcat (talk) 16:56, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Eric SprottEdit

Hi! Your deletion of Eric Sprott is a very sad decision. I may also say that it's pretty discouraging, even though I'm an experienced editor. It should not be a surprise that Wikipedia loses editors, both young and mature. Cheers, Lamro (talk) 17:30, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

ITNEdit

Shouldn't this article be posted already? I've nearly doubled the size of the article since your objection. It's been two days without any updates and this seems to me a perfectly valid candidate. Thanks. Batjik Syutfu (talk) 06:42, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

DRN re See alsoEdit

For the reasons I stated in my last reply to you here, unless you're of the opinion that both there's no consensus there and at the article talk page for retention or deletion of the see also link, I'm concerned that a continuation of our theory vs. consensus discussion there is only further complicating the larger discussion which is already far beyond the scope of what that dispute deserves. If, of course, you are of the opinion that there is no consensus, then our discussion is entirely apropos, but even then I think that we've both probably already said everything that needs to be said about it there. Either way, would you consider agreeing to silently terminate our discussion on the theory vs. consensus point at DRN and to, if either of us desires to do so, either continue it here or somewhere else other than DRN? Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 16:57, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

BarelinksEdit

A compromise There certainly is a consensus that my actions due not warrant admin intervention and they are in line with Wikipedia policies and procedures. The only objection is aesthetic, so to that end, this should keep everyone from complaining on my user talk. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 04:52, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

No As I pointed out at AN/I, these templates are supposed to go at the top of the article, so there is nothing to fix as there is nothing broken. In the past, when I have manually added {{Barelinks}}, I put it in the references section because it was convenient, but that was strictly speaking against the guideline. I'm only doing it now to keep other editors from prolonging this discussion. I'm glad that your interests and mine could intersect, but I am not going to be going back to all of these other pages to amend them purely out of the aesthetic concerns of others users. If that sounds harsh, I hope you understand that I don't mean it to be combative, merely realistic--that is a huge undertaking for no payoff. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:03, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Why? The consensus is that these templates and the maintenance categories are useful and necessary. A minority of users wanted them moved somewhere else. Removing the template altogether would not be helpful and would be a huge hinderance in fixing linkrot in these articles. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:11, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
No consensus There were a handful of editors who didn't like the template where it was and they mentioned that in the context of a different discussion. If you want to build a consensus on the placement of the template, you will have to do it somewhere relevant to the discussion of maintenance templates. I would be happy to give my input in that discussion, but interested or involved editors may not see this unrelated post at AN/I, so there cannot be a consensus regarding the use of this template as such--only my actions. If you revert several thousand edits based on the aesthetic concerns of three or four editors when it has been established that those original edits are within the guidelines of the encyclopedia and they are useful for its maintenance, that would be a WP:POINT issue. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:24, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
It seems counterproductive to revert the edits which add the article to a category where the bare links can be acted on. There are many users who patrol this category, correct the deficiencies, and then remove the tag. My76Strat (talk) 21:18, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but the first thing our readers see when they click on an article shouldn't be a maint tag, especially that tag. If I thought that significant progress could be made clearing them I'd stop but generally there isn't. Or if there was a plan to move them, but he's said no to that. RxS (talk) 21:27, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for that. I tend to agree that this tag is better situated within the references section. Perhaps some software modification would be a great improvement to prevent them from dominating articles while adding them to an appropriate category for cleanup. I should also like to add that fixing the problem takes barely more time than simply adding the tag, and I am a fan of WP:SOFIXIT. My76Strat (talk) 21:34, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't mind the smaller tag above the ref section. The Webreflinks tool doesn't seem to work and I don't know of any other way to quickly fix the issue. If there's some other way to add them to the cat I'm fine with that. It's the appearance that's the issue. We're already worried about a drop in editors, incomprehensible wiki tags dominating articles doesn't help. RxS (talk) 21:45, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
I agree. My76Strat (talk) 21:51, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

  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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Old Log TheaterEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Old Log Theater requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from https://www.triposo.com/poi/Old_Log_Theater. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

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.
