Maps of the OrdensstaatEdit

Hallo Space Cadet, I have just recoloured your maps in order to make them more suggestive. That means, I've tried to demonstrate connections with similar colours and antagonisms with different colours. Normally I also rename any image if I overwork it. In these three cases I deliberately did not, because they are used by a bundle of articles an I wanted to im prove them for all those articles. In one of these aticles I have to change the descripition at once. If you want to answer or reply, I ask you to answer on my German page de:Benutzer:Ulamm. Yours' sincerely Ulamm 00:45, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
In addition a question: why has the Prussian territory (of the Ordensstaat) in your maps such a southeastern appendix? As I know, such appendices existed only for very short times (when the Orden was on top of its power, between the 2nd Polish division and Napoleon, during the Worldwars. Yours' sincerely Ulamm 01:46, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
Furthermore: Your choice of names is quite inconsequent: Hrodna for Grodno is very actual, Helsingfors since almost 100 years is only the second name behind Helsinki. Windau and Rewel are out of official use since 1918. Szczecin is in official use since 1945. Dyneburg is English. Yours' sincerely Ulamm 13:07, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Szczecin is in Polish because the official language of the land was that of the ruling house. Hrodna is the Ruthenian name so it applies. I tried to use names that pertain to corresponding historical periods. I don't understand why you mix medieval Ordensstaaat with Napoleon. Always, Space Cadet (talk) 16:06, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Neutral Point of ViewEdit

You recently reverted my change to the Gdansk article, claiming to restore NPOV. In fact, the opposite is true. Phrases like "in the hands of the German Reich," "temporarily lost its Polish roots," and "regain the city" absolutely reek of Polish-nationalist revisionist history. 75.37.144.221 (talk) 04:38, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

And that's your opinion... Space Cadet (talk) 14:47, 28 February 2008 (UTC)


You really are a piece of work. It is clear that my little complaint only addresses the smallest tip of the iceberg that is your chauvinistic, nationalistic, foaming-at-the-mouth, propaganda-contributing self. What happened to get you this worked up? Ubudoda (talk) 02:52, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Any explanation on how you arrived at those conclusions? No? That's what I thought. Space Cadet (talk) 15:51, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Recovered TerritoriesEdit

Greetings from Melbourne, Australia. I'm just concerned that in the Former eastern territories of Germany article the areas of Poland that were annexed by an aggressive Prussia in the 18th century and returned to newly-constituted Poland after WW1 are being conflated with Pomerania and Silesia, which were about as Polish as Lwów was Ukranian. I'm aware that Wladyslaw Gomulka and the communists in Poland chose to emphasise the Piast period in Polish history to justify the new territorial arrangements and suck up to the USSR but I'm more of the opinion that the territorial changes of Poland in 1945 are an historical accident that must be accepted and not revised any further for Europe to move on, rather than something to be proud of. Thoughts? Colonel Mustard (talk) 05:46, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Territorial changes of 1945 were decided by all Allies, without presence of Poland, so so much for sucking up. Maybe Silesia and Pomerania are as Polish as Lwów is Ukrainian, but they're not as German as Lwów is Polish. Don't let your analogies go too far. Space Cadet (talk) 13:11, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

And try to tell Ukrainians that L'viv was Polish or not to be proud about regaining it. I'm not threatening you, but УПА may find you and explain their point of view their way. Remember it's not a threat, but a warning. Space Cadet (talk) 17:16, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Your vandalismEdit

{pl} Skończ z tymi tekstami o RAŚ. Jesteś trollem? Jeśli nie to się tak nie zachowuj. Nie wpisuję tekstów RAŚiowskich o które mnie ciągle!!!!!!!!!!! posądzasz prawie za każdym razem gdy mamy jakieś nieporozumienie. Usunąłem tę kategorię z artykułu bo RAŚ nie jest polskim stowarzyszeniem, lecz śląską organizacją i za taką jest uważana i to nawet w Polsce. RAŚ nie jest uważane za polskie stowarzyszenie. Jeśli masz tak drastyczne problemy z rozumieniem rzeczywistości to jednak Wikipedia nie jest dla ciebie.

Puszczałem płazem wpisywane przez ciebie polskie POV do wielu artykułów, lecz musisz zrozumieć że nie dam wpisywać takiego POV w śląskie artykuły. Starałem się trzymać od ciebie i twoich edycji z daleka, ale jak coś dotyczy Śląska to już co innego. Masz tylko dwie opcje do wyboru:

  • w jednej ręce trzymasz dystans od śląskich artykułów, nie edytujesz ich jak obecnie, masz za to mniej konfliktów, wojen itp i więcej spokoju
  • w drugiej ręce trzymasz edycje w śląskich artykułach ale masz wojny, rewerty itp

Co wybierasz? Rób co chcesz. Jeszcze raz powtarzam: nie dam wprowadzać polskiego POV do śląskich artykułów. LUCPOL (talk) 16:55, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Wybieram prawdę i sprawiedliwość. Space Cadet (talk) 17:01, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Jaką prawdę i sprawiedliwość? Nazwałeś Ruch Autonomii Śląska polskim stowarzyszeniem. Co teraz zrobisz? Napiszesz że ziemia jest płaska, że 2+2=5 i że stolicą Antarktydy jest Warszawa? Żałosne. LUCPOL (talk) 17:04, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Sam jesteś żałosny ze swoim tRAŚh-owskim wypranym mózgiem. A Warszawa jest stolicą Świata, więc także Antarktydy. Space Cadet (talk)

PS. Nie jestem w RAŚ i nie mam ich poglądów. Tylko część poglądów się pokrywa, ale część poglądów mam również od PiS i PO więc pokrywanie się części poglądów nie jest żadnym wyznacznikiem. Tak więc panie Space Kadet, jeśli jeszcze raz mnie oskarżysz o RAŚiowskie poglądy to wyjawię prawdę o panu - że pan ma nazistowskie poglądy i pan tego nie ukryje. LUCPOL (talk) 17:13, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

To sobie wyjaw, proszę bardzo. Space Cadet (talk) 15:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Napisałeś "Oficjalnie popierasz niepodległość Śląska - dla mnie jesteś ultra-tRAŚhem, gadaj sobie co chcesz" - na tej samej zasadzie jesteś dla mnie polskim nazistą i polskim skrajnym nacjonalistą, który nie chce zwrócić Śląsku autonomii zabranej przez polską komunistyczną władzę po II wojnie światowej. Obojętnie co ty sądzisz o mnie a ja o tobie - nie masz prawa w kółko przezywać mnie na Wikipedii RAŚiowcem czy w kółko pisać przy naszych nieporozumieniach że mam RAŚiowskie poglądy. To jakie mam poglądy to jest moja sprawa, za poglądy innych nie można karać czy wyzywać innych, bo to jest przestępstwo zarówno w życiu realnym - kodeks karny, jak również na Wikipedii. Abyś czasami tej wypowiedzi nie zmanipulował to zwracam uwagę że nie grożę ci sądem, ale przypominam że takie zachowanie ma wyraźne znamiona przestępstwa. Napisałbym to samo jak być jawnie propagował nazizm i miał szablon z zabronionym znaczkiem na swej stronie. Tak więc nie życzę sobie abyś mi wypominał moje poglądy, ba! poglądy o które ty mnie oskarżasz bo ty twierdzisz że "dla mnie jesteś ultra-tRAŚhem" a nie ja. Tak więc dostałem już zapewnienie od administratora że zostaniesz zablokowany za dalsze takie zachowanie. Jeśli dochodzi do różnicy zdań w jakimś artykule to walcz tylko na argumenty, a nie zakładaj złej woli innego użytkownika, nie rewertuj na ślepo bo ktoś ma inne poglądy niż ty i nie stosuj wycieczek personalnych. Sprawa jest bardziej poważna niż ci się zdaje. Myślę że ta sprawa jest już wyjaśniona i można ją zamknąć gdyż nie podlega i nie może podlegać ona dyskusji. LUCPOL (talk) 21:54, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Wprowadziłeś taką treść do artykułu. Artykuł - jego forma i treść była długo przed twoją poprawką, ty wprowadzasz poprawkę i to ty musisz podać źródła. Zgodnie z zasadą WP:WER to na dodającym treść spoczywa dodawanie źródeł. Zatem proszę o podanie dokładnego źródła informacji zawartych w prowadzonej przez ciebie treści.

Mol...Edit

Wstawianie skrajnego POV i OR do artykułów jest wandalizmem. Dlatego był taki a nie inni opis zmian. Niepotrzebnie zrewertowałeś i znów bezmyślnie. Jeżeli w edycji Moloba widzisz wszystko ok to powinieneś się zgłosić do jakiegoś admina w celu stałego zablokowania konta bo masz wyraźne problemy z rzeczywistością i zasadami Wikipedii. Aby przywrócić tak skrajnie POViastą i OR edycję trzeba mieć naprawdę duże problemy ze samym sobą.

Na przyszłość - lepiej abyś wiedział:

  • nie rewertuj mnie na ślepo jak robisz cały czas, to że mam poglądy inne niż ty nie znaczy że robię złą edycję.
  • nie przywracaj na ślepo zrewertowanych edycji swoich "towarzyszy". Molobo wprowadził tak skrajną (POV i OR) edycję, że chyba jej nie czytałeś
  • pomyśl czy warto - jakbyś pomyślał to byś wiedział że ja lub kto inny na 100% cię zrewertuje. Pytanie więc po co to robisz - nie szkoda ci czasu i reputacji?
  • nigdy nie pozwolę wprowadzać waszych POVów do artów dotyczących Śląska (już to pisałem nie raz) a wy wciąż wierzycie w jakiś cuda. ZAWSZE taka edycja będzie zrewertowana choćby miały być rewerty do końca świata. Gwarantuję. Na Wikipedii nie ma miejsca dla polskiego POV, a ja pilnuję tylko artykułów dotyczących Śląska. Macie prawie całą Wikipedię dla siebie, ale od Śląska POViaste łapy - wynocha.

Dochodzi jeszcze jedna rzecz, nad którą się zastanawiałem: dotąd prosiłem was i chciałem być ok. Wy dalej robicie swoje w śląskich artach więc powinienem was rewertować również w innych artach np. Gdańsk, Ustka itd itd. Moja zasada była prosta - trzymajcie się z dala od artykułów o Śląsku - ja będę się trzymał z dala od waszych POVów i ORów w innych artach. Jeżeli będziecie wciąż robić swoje w śląskich artach wspomogę innych w rewertowaniu was również w innych artach. Koniec pobłażania. To jest ostateczne ultimatum. Nie musisz odpowiadać, nie negocjuję - to ultimatum. Po czynach zobaczymy co wiebierzecie. Jeśli wciąż POViaste edycje w śląskich artach to skończy się wasz polski POV w całej Wikipedii. Możecie mieć całą Wikipedię do siebie, tylko bez Śląska lub możecie nie mieć nic. LUCPOL (talk) 18:57, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

"Chcesz walczyć, to sobie walcz. I tak Śląsk był, jest i zawsze będzie Polski, na Wikipedii też. Space Cadet (talk) 21:30, 5 March 2008 (UTC)" - tak, niemiecka i czeska część Śląska to też przecież Polska. I była, jest i zawsze będzie polska. Setki tysięcy osób zarówno narodowości śląskiej jak i niemieckiej oraz czeskiej które zamieszkują Śląsk są 100% Polakami. Na Śląsku nie ma żadnej niechęci do Goroli (Polaków). Ślązacy ich uwielbiają i zawsze o nich dobrze mówią. Na Śląsku w XIX, XX i teraz w XXI wieku nigdy nie było żadnych separatyzmów. Nawet autonomia Śląska czy państwo śląskie nie istniało, przecież nie było autonomicznego województwa, księstw śląskich czy państwa stanowego. Do 1945 roku 92% ludności Śląska była niemiecka ale to byli przecież Polacy udający Niemców. Ale to nic, jak również to że najbardziej polska część Śląska - Śląsk Cieszyński wychodował największych narodowców z Kożdoniem na czele, a klub Ruch Chorzów - polski klub z 1922 roku kiedy zaczęły powstawać polskie kluby ma banery "To my naród śląski" itp. Ale co tam, Ruch Chorzów to mały klubik a że mecz ligowy z innym śląskim klubem - Górnikiem Zabrze na Stadionie Śląskim 2 marca 2008 oglądało 42 tysiące widzów to nic. My Ślązacy nie mamy własnej tożsamości, nie mamy własnej kultury, kuchni, tradycji czy mowy. Jesteśmy 100% polakami przecież. Nie jest ważne że się nimi nie czujemy bo przecież to ty zawsze masz rację - Śląsk zawsze polski!!! Mam prośbę - idź na odwyk bo twoja utrata kontaktu z rzeczywistością ma stadium krytyczne. Pozdrawiam. LUCPOL (talk) 22:18, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

An often overlooked factEdit

[3] It strikes me that in the onslaught of Nazi and Nationalist German propaganda sources, somehow we were mesmerised so much, that this obvious fact escaped our notice. It would be good to expand this simple factual data to some articles.--Molobo (talk) 21:44, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Twoja głupotaEdit

Jeszcze się nie nauczyłeś, że nie dam wprowadzać twoich POVów do artykułów o tematyce śląskiej? Ja będę rewertował choćby w nieskończoność, zatem marnujesz czas. Ten czas mógłbyś poświęcić na coś mądrego, ale ty znów wybierasz głupotę. Gratuluję. Biorąc pod uwagę, że złamałeś dane przeze mnie ultimatum działające na zasadzie: trzymaj się od śląskich artów z daleka, a ja będę się trzymał z daleka od twoich POVów w reszcie edytowanych przez ciebie artów to powiadamiam, że będę cię rewertował w dowolnych artykułach w których wciskasz polskie POV i wspomagał innych rewertujących cię użytkowników. Im więcej będziesz tkał swoje POViaste ręce do śląskich artykułów to tym więcej będę wycinał twoje POVy z innych artykułów. Jesteś bez wątpienia jednym z najbardziej daremnych ludzi jakich znam. EOT.

Mój Kompan Kadet WszechświataEdit

I never meant to talk behind your back. I didn´t expect a German comment on a wiki talk-page to be a secret message. Thanks for your immediate answer, I´ll ask you next time right away... . As I see, I don´t have to translate it to you, you got the meaning. I agree with you about the "sillyness" of the Gdańsk vote, though it´s necessary to have a compromise. But I have a different interpretation of that "shared history" than you: Double naming should still require English usage also, and I can´t see that for Królewiec, as I remember from reading Davies for ex (otherwise we end up with double naming all Polish cities during the partitions, even if they´re unnown in English publications (like Krakau and Warschau)). But my RL keeps me too busy to do more here and I don´t care enough.

Faction and FractionEdit

Noticed your rev. A CDU/CSU faction would require that CDU/CSU is "a grouping of individuals, especially within a political organisation, such as a political party, a trade union, or other group with a political purpose" (first line). But CDU/CSU is the party itself, it is not part of any other organisation.

The CDU/CSU-members of this party who were elected into the Bundestag are organized within the CDU/CSU fraction. Erika Steinbach is a spokesperson of that fraction and this fraction supports some of her initiatives. Do you agree? --ThePiedCow (talk) 16:19, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Daniel Gabriel FahrenheitEdit

I'd want something stronger than that one Polonus reference to back a claim of Fahrenheit considering himself a Polish citizen in 1724 when he joined the Royal Society. Inferring that he meant anything more than his birth country from that signature is highly POV, and best not included without a stronger reference. Indeed, I'd imagine he was probably a Dutch citizen by that time, but have no references to substantiate my opinion. Caerwine Caer’s whines 03:00, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Gdansk voteEdit

Honestly, can't you just stop violating the Gdansk vote? Today: [8] [9]. Sciurinæ (talk) 18:38, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

In what way do these edits violate the vote? I'm the greatest supporter and enfocer of the vote, as far as I know. Space Cadet (talk) 23:03, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

I would have returned to the case earlier if it had not been for quite an eventful week. Anyway, it appears you're continuing regardless: [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16]. As for the first diff of the two I mentioned, you were removing the double naming. In fact, it could be better settled by naming the treaty instead of the place, the name of the article being Treaty of Stuhmsdorf, which is more common in English than the Polish name. As for the other one, you were giving precedence to the Polish name for someone born in Thuringia who created "Preußische Himmelskugeln"[17] ("Prussian celestial spheres"). The Gdansk vote also clarified that. Also, this city was dominated by Germans [18] and the fact that it was known primarily by its inhabitants as Elbing,[19] since you don't care how more common a name is.[20] A very easily recognisable violation of the Gdansk vote would be this.
Rather than "the greatest supporter and enfocer of the vote", you've been acting more as the greatest opponent of the vote. Your intention then and now is to advocate the Polish names, mostly for the period 1466 to 1793. Same went for your choice in the vote. Your voting for the period 1466 to 1793 was Gdansk (more correctly: your double voting), and you did not accept the result, not then ([21] [22] [23]), not now when you get a chance ([24]). Therefore you've already unambiguously voiced what you think about the vote: "Chris stages a vote, falsifies it, misinterprets conveniently the false results and then tries to change polish history", "The vote itself was staged, results falsified and there was never a shadow of any consensus.", "The original vote was for "Gdansk" in this time period, but then Chris falsified the outcome by eliminating some votes.", "WE-DON'T-NEED-NO-DOU-BLE-NA-MING, WE-DON'T-NO-THOUGHT-CON-TROLL, NO-EL-BING-KULM-LAND-IN--THE-CLASSROOM, HEY!- NAZI,-LEAVE-US-POLES-ALONE!".
As a consequence, you have been edit warring for your preferred name choice for many years, as described here. And 2008 is no different: [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] [55] [56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] [62] [63] [64] [65] [66] [67] [68] [69] [70] [71] [72] [73] [74] [75] [76] [77] [78] [79] [80] [81] [82] [83] [84] [85] [86] [87] [88] [89] [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95] [96] [97] [98] [99] [100] [101] [102] [103] [104] [105] [106] [107] [108] [109] [110] [111] [112] [113] [114] [115] [116] [117] [118] [119] [120] [121] [122] [123] [124] [125] [126] [127] [128] [129] [130] [131] [132] [133] [134] [135] [136] [137] [138] [139] [140] [141] [142] [143] [144] [145] [146] [147] [148] [149] [150] [151] [152] [153].

Image licensingEdit

Hey there...

I am trying to clean up some of the images with minor licensing issues and I came across Image:Space Cadet.PNG which is only used on your userpage. If you are going to use the image, could you go and fix the licensing on the image page and be clear about releasing the image under a GFDL license (or another free license). Thanks. If you have any questions, please drop me a note on my talk page. --Jordan 1972 (talk) 22:14, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

I would like to thank you for reverting the povish editions of LUCPOL in the History of Silesia article. This guy is a banned Polish Wikipedian and even though he almost does not spek English he is Vandalising articles concerning Polish history on the enwiki. His most favorite activity is to delete all facts from the Polish history of the so called Recovered Territories. I would like to ask you to keep your eye on the History of Silesia article in case he strikes again. Best Wishes 77.253.67.210 (talk) 16:59, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Bez zbędnego gadania. Już Ci kiedyś dałem ultimatum: nie ruszaj śląskich artykułów to ja nie będę rewertował twoich polskich POVów w innych artach i nie przyłączę się do koalicji wikipedystów zwalczających polskie POV. Właśnie dokonałeś takiej edycji i to spowodowało moje zrewertowanie 3!!! artykułów po twoich edycjach [155], [156], [157]. Zasada jest prosta: ty wpakujesz swoje polskie łapy w jakiś jeden śląski artykuł to ja rewertuję 3 twoje polskie edycje w innych artach. Teraz jest 3:1, ale ta liczba będzie się zwiększać. Za jakiś czas jak swoje łapska wetkniesz w śląski artykuł to liczba będzie inna: 4 moje reverty za 1 twoją edycję w śląskich artach. Burzysz ultimatum a to spowoduje skutki. Chcesz wciskać polskie POV do artów na en.wiki? Dam ci radę: ja nie "widzę" twoich polskich edycji w innych artach więc rób co chcesz, ale jak jeszcze dotkniesz jakiś śląski artykuł swoją polską łapą to będą już 4 rewerty. Później być może koalicja z innymi (wieloma!!!!) userami toczącymi wojny w polskim POV, a jak wiesz - jest ich bardzo wielu. Pozdrawiam serdecznie ;p LUCPOL (talk) 17:35, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Lechu.JPGEdit

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

If you created 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 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 in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. 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 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 uploaded by following this link.

Arbitration enforcement topic ban (WP:DIGWUREN)Edit

Considering that your contributions and your block log show that you are habitually engaging in battleground-like conduct related to nationalist issues involving Poland and Germany, that at least since 2008 all or almost all of your contributions are dedicated to pursuing such disputes, that you are currently involved in nationalist edit wars of this sort at Wilhelm Gnapheus, Rübezahl, Henricus Petrus and Mauritius Ferber, I consider your mode of editing in this topic area to be persistently disruptive. For this reason, per WP:DIGWUREN#Discretionary sanctions, you are hereby indefinitely banned from the topic of Germany and Germans, broadly construed. For the avoidance of doubt, the topic includes subjects which are or were wholly or partially German, or whose German-ness is disputed (by you or others), and the ban includes all articles, other pages, parts of pages and discussions related to the topic, and does not contain exceptions for reverting vandalism or WP:BLP violations (but these may be reported to the appropriate noticeboard instead). Be advised that any violations of this ban may result in immediate long blocks. This sanction may be appealed as described at WP:DIGWUREN#Discretionary sanctions.  Sandstein  21:11, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

I am in receipt of an e-mail of yours requesting a reduction in scope of this sanction. This is declined because you have not shown that you can work productively with others in (other) controversial areas since the imposition of your ban; indeed, you have not edited at all since then. If issues involving Germany and Poland are really all that interests you on Wikipedia, then this may not be a good place for you anyway; we do not like single purpose accounts. Please make some substantial contributions in other difficult areas to show that your cooperation skills have improved before appealing your ban again.  Sandstein  08:17, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Concerning your question per e-mail, "Am I allowed to voice my comments on the respective discussion pages?", the answer is no.  Sandstein  15:50, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:HistoricSilesiamap2.PNGEdit

 

Thank you for uploading File:HistoricSilesiamap2.PNG. 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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 20:52, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

March 2015Edit

To enforce an arbitration decision and for violating your Germans topic ban, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 week. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page.  Sandstein  18:20, 31 March 2015 (UTC)


Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted a procedure instructing administrators as follows: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."

Sorry, I undid the block. I didn't notice that this was in fact you reverting yourself.  Sandstein  18:23, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

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.

File:Haupthandelsroute Hanse.PNG needs authorship informationEdit

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Haupthandelsroute Hanse.PNG appears to be missing information as to one (or more) of the following :

  1. The author or creators of the work, (including information as to the author's lifespan).
  2. Where and how this particular version was obtained.
  3. When the work was created,

If you did provide such information, it is currently confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Space Cadet}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.

Please also add authorship and sourcing to other files you created or uplopaded. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.


If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:32, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Prussia Graffiti.JPGEdit

 

Thank you for uploading File:Prussia Graffiti.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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
