Fair use rationale for File:Hmcs-labrador-badge.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Hmcs-labrador-badge.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:12, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Island "territory"Edit

Why "territory"? The Netherlands Antilles government and all island governments use "island area" in any English language document that I've ever seen.—Kww(talk) 05:00, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

GO Transit stations and infoboxesEdit

I've noticed a few recent changes you've made to GO station article infoboxes. I think you need to speak with User:Secondarywaltz, who has been working on a standardised infobox for station and line articles, and with whom I had a brief discussion about it at the beginning of the week. Mindmatrix 18:40, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Ontario transit connectionsEdit

Thanks for trying to debug. I assume it's the slight extra space after the first entry. You come from BC, so do you think I should move this and the related colour definitions to "CAN transit connections" & "color" (or something), to make it national? Secondarywaltz (talk) 17:44, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Now moved to Template:Canada transit color and Template:Canada transit connection. Secondarywaltz (talk) 19:01, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

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).

PLEASE NOTE:

Sint EustatiusEdit

ISO has published an update, correcting the island name from "Saint Eustatius" to "Sint Eustatius" [1]. So I think we should move this back to where the name was originally. Chanheigeorge (talk) 05:25, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

+1. Btw, is there a way to quickly undo all the edits I made to change "Sint Eustatius" to "Saint Eustatius"? It is a lot of work reverting those changes by hand again... Styath (talk) 18:57, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
