Application StoresEdit

The article after the revisions, had a "Apple-centric" tone and had deleted the mentioned lawsuit against Apple for copyright infringement. I felt like the article had been in a few ways vandalized. Possibly not by you, but by the banned user below. The article was supposed to be a broad look at application stores in general, not an ad for Apple and the edits made did not add value in a whole. That said, I understand your revert and I admit I think I messed up and I didn't mean to mark your edits as vandalism. Thank you again. hutchisojl {talk} 16:47, 22 February (PST)

Swine Flu NameEdit

Thanks for giving me the Wiki rule, since I commented the name has begun to stick even more, though it grates a little to a medical scientist like me that it is such a poor and misleading description, lets hope they evolve it! --Hontogaichiban (talk) 22:06, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Tv-Links.Edit

I have contacted them via email and confirmed that they are indeed the same TV-Links. Ive emailed them again asking about the results of the cases against them. Ill add all the info to the page soon. Just letting you know this so you don't delete it again. - Yamagushi

Your Changes on Gurgaon pageEdit

Gurgaon is a rapidly growing metropolitan and I personally feel that having a lot of images on the page in not bad. Actually it makes the page much more appealing. I do agree that the way the article has been written is below average and I would appreciate u making cahnges. One the Shooping Mall section u reverted everything to another page. i do think that the Shopping mall section to remain It is 1 of the only reason why Gurgaon is so famous across India. So I have reverted your image removing good faith edits. ThanksEnthusiast10 (talk) 20:57, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

    • You considered the image to be deleted but it has been used by numerous articels and also used as a cover on Delti Times saturday magazine. Do u want me to upload it as a cover of a magzine I would do that.

Your GOOD FAITH contribution to the Gurgaon article has been reverted please discuss changes on the Duisscusion page. Thank You Manaspunhani (talk) 09:08, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

      • Yes Enthusiast 10 and I bith upload images by flickr users to Wiki. I can send u the cover of a the DElhi Times saturday magazine that shows that image. Manaspunhani (talk) 09:08, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Changes to Wikipedia:Image use policyEdit

Just FYI— You were reverted over there on the basis that your edit changed the meaning without discussion. However, the text you removed was only recently introduced, itself entirely without discussion or evidence of support that I could find. On that basis I reverted the revert and noted my reason in the edit summary. Cheers. --Gmaxwell (talk) 21:39, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah I didn't see any support for that either. That recent undiscussed addition was draconian in any case:P. It almost seemed to me like it was suggesting that we photoshop legitimate images in order to remove any trademarks! If it isn't a free image, then you sure as heck shouldn't be messing with it. Someone owns that thing, and even if they are letting you use it, they're not going to want you changing it. Not only that, but it said "trademarks are copyrights", as if trademarks are a type of copyright. Uh.... no. Trademark, Copyright, and Patent are 3 totally different things, with different rules, different purposes, and different consequences for violation. I wish people wouldn't confuse them all the time.Gopher65talk 02:34, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Canadian_bills2.jpgEdit

I saw you put http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Canadian_bills2.jpg put for speedy deletion. I didn't see any obvious explanation anywhere of your reasons, nor did I see any obvious place to discuss an image deletion. Should this be on the talk page of one of the articles using that image?Gopher65talk 02:42, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Free Software Portal Logo.svgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Free Software Portal Logo.svg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:19, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

bulldozerEdit

We've been through this already, and I moved the article back to the *correct* title. Correct in the context of article titles is not factual correctness, but what the topic is most commonly referred to. In this case, it's without doubt Jerusalem bulldozer attack, and therefore that is the correct article title. Please don't revert again. "Jerusalem front-end loader attack" is wrong as the article title. Everyme (was Dorftrottel) (talk) 15:45, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of I Am RichEdit

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article I Am Rich, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.  Asenine  16:23, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Your PUIsEdit

Could you explain your rationales to me? The 'no freedom of panorama in France' doesn't make sense to me.  Asenine  19:57, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

August 2008Edit

  You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on TV Links. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. WilliamH (talk) 13:07, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

There is a source for lemonparty411Edit

"ViperSnake151 (Talk | contribs | block) m (8,155 bytes) (Reverted good faith edits by WhisperToMe; No source. w/TW) (rollback | undo)"

Vipersnake, I included a source; the URL itself. Now, because lemonparty is blocked as a spam site, I cannot include a clickable link; one has to manually copy and paste the URL into the address bar. BTW, I do not believe I need to have a source indicating notability of the particular picture; the website itself is notable, so anything on it may be described in the entry about the site. WhisperToMe (talk) 23:38, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

There are times when it is perfectly reasonable to only use first party content to source claims. As per WP:RS:

  • "Primary sources — writings on or about a topic by key figures of the topic — may be allowable, but should be restricted to purely descriptive explanations of the subject or its core concepts. They should not be used for interpretation or evaluation; use the interpretations and evaluations of reliable secondary sources for that purpose. Tertiary sources — compendiums, encyclopedias, textbooks, and other summarizing sources — may be used to give overviews or summaries, but should not be used in place of secondary sources for detailed discussion."

Now, the sentence about lemonparty411 is purely descriptive. There is no interpretation or evaluation of the image; the sentence merely says that the image exists on the website. The part of the lemonparty section which does require secondary sources is the part about the popularity; this is well-sourced, so the lemonparty section itself can stay. WhisperToMe (talk) 23:46, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:Czeslawa-Kwoka.jpgEdit

There is nothing illegal about the image. It is public domain, and even if it wasn't its use would be fair use. The reason it has thirty billion tags and a talk page longer than most articles is because NYScholar is obsessed with ridding Wikipedia of it and all similar images, see [1] and [2]. -Nard 19:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Image:Czeslawa-Kwoka.jpg and Image:Czeslawa-Kwoka2.jpgEdit

Inaccurate comments above: I have been struggling to try to get the image pages presented properly so that they can remain in the article on Kwoka without jeopardizing the article in the future, since it was the subject of a deletion request in the past [Please see the article talk page (top template re: that]. I am "not obsessed with ridding Wikipedia of" these images; I want them uploaded and presented properly. See the image talk pages for more recent comments. A newly-cropped version of the 1st image created by another user still apparently needs to be uploaded. The image pages have both been revised by others to account for the problems and apparently the images no longer reside in Wikipedia Commons. The Wikipedia Commons seems to redirect to Wikipedia versions now. Please double check. Thanks. --NYScholar (talk) 22:52, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, I see that there are still duplicate files in Wikipedia Commons accessible via link. A category indicating that needs to be entered in image page? --NYScholar (talk) 23:08, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Movieland tightening-upEdit

Nice job on that. I had just gotten to the point of thinking about the best way to shorten the lead when I saw that you had already done it, and tightened up the rest of it as well. Deliberately or not, you seem to have corrected some problems noted at Wikipedia:Good article reassessment/Movieland/1. Kudos for the image-copyright work especially, I have always dreaded that area.

I notice you recently edited Micro Bill Systems which of course has parallels to Movieland; I've just started working on a more balanced version in a sandbox. Interestingly, one of the references says there has been some cross-pollination between principals of the two companies. --CliffC (talk) 16:25, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of MileyWorldEdit

A tag has been placed on MileyWorld requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for web content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 00:13, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

2008 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony start timeEdit

Hi. I noticed that you changed the article, noting that you'd found sources saying that the Beijing Opening Ceremony started at 8PM, rather than 8:08PM, but you didn't provide any of these sources in your edit. Could you please provide them now? Here are three of their official news releases pointing to a planned 8:08pm start time, so I guess I'd be looking for a report saying that instead of starting when it was planned to start, it actually started 8 minutes earlier than planned. - Mark 14:51, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Hm, weird. I think the ticketing times can be largely ignored (they would have been printed well in advance of the ceremony and may take into account the drums and stuff as the build-up), but that news release of theirs says 8PM too. In the end, it's not really that important, and the only way to really know for sure would be to get a recorded copy of it with time codes. Too much effort :) - Mark 15:14, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Actually, this makes quite a bit of sense: "After years of planning by officials and training by athletes, the ceremony began just before the scheduled start time of 8.08pm amid tight security." - from here -- so I guess they scheduled it for 8:08PM and actually started it at 8PM. - Mark 15:17, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Wbvc the cw.jpg)Edit

  Thanks for uploading Image:Wbvc the cw.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:31, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Image statusEdit

File:CISOJuly26-2006-5PMPDTems large.gif
This file is in the public domain, because It is the work of a California government agency as noted below and is free of the exceptions specified at the source website

What part of the explanation given on the image is inadequate? I have copied the terms of the site from which the image was taken - these clearly state that it may be used since it is a primary work of the CISO and not a product of its vendors, etc, subject to copyright. What else should be provided? Perhaps you can point out to me how the use in WP is outside of the permissions stated or how that statement is defective as a representation of the terms stated on thewebsite. Thank you, Leonard G. (talk) 03:41, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

We do not have legitimate and explicit proof that California government works are in the public domain. It redirects to No license on Wikipedia, and directly to Copyvio on Commons. See Template talk:PD-CAGov. ViperSnake151 11:19, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
So what form and content of "legitimate and explicit proof" would satisfy you ("we")? Please be explicit and detailed in your answer and I will do my best to obtain it. (I have been around with this before on other California agency images and I expect that you will be going after those also, even though they have long been well addressed to other's satisfaction by the means addressed for the image in question.) - Leonard G.

Do I understand correctly that the OTRS ticket 2008091610055854 applies to *categories*? -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 03:23, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I just posted this over at the AfD discussion, but aside from the leads for those articles, the data and the tables themselves are not covered by copyright in the United States. The very basic (and very public) data listed in those "affiliates of" articles is not novel; see sweat of the brow for the legalese.   user:j    (aka justen)   05:49, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Is there any particular reason you are taking it upon yourself to handle OTRS issues on-wiki, despite you not having OTRS access (and by extension, the ability to read the ticket you cited as a deletion reason)? If something needs to be done per OTRS, there are plenty of active en.wikipedia users with OTRS access capable of doing it. Mr.Z-man 06:44, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Edit summaryEdit

Hi ViperSnake151. Do you know how to make an edit summary? It would be helpful for comprehending for edits.

Pitbull with LipstickEdit

A tag has been placed on Pitbull with Lipstick, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from an implausible typo.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you believe that there is a reason to keep the redirect, you can request that administrators wait a while before deleting it. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 00:22, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: this edit of IWF block of Wikipedia. I for one don't care if the article is blocked, but I do care if Wikipedia or its editors get sued for WP:COPYVIO.

I have nominated Internet Watch Foundation and Wikipedia, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Internet Watch Foundation and Wikipedia (2nd nomination). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Hi there,

I did protect the page, however the protection expired yesterday. Does the page need to be re-protected or have disputes been resolved?

CommentEdit

If it is published, its published. Its just not going to be mass-distributed. The work itself was "exhibited outside Wikipedia" as someone took a screenshot of it and put it online.

All copies of build 6596 are stolen, it was never distributed or intended to be distributed. Microsoft did exhibit it (i.e. show it off), so someone could have made a photo, but no one would have legitimately been about to make a screenshot. Dragons flight (talk) 10:55, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Re: Notability


bullshit they do have reliable sources, they're under "sources". learn how to read. leave my articles alone. I'll take this issue to third party arbitration. The networks are notable (especially the radio one) because Lions games started to get blacked out this year and loyal fans who can't afford to go to games have to listen on the radio. Just cause the Lions haven't been to a Super Bowl doesn't mean you should remove anything that would tell people how to people to watch / listen to them.

Banknotes of Zimbabwe edits.Edit

Hello, I wish to tell you about the recent developments in regards to the use Zimbabwean banknotes on Wikipedia. May I make it clear that banknotes that were withdrawn before and on 31 December 2008 fall under clause 50 of the Copyright Act of Zimbabwe, Chapter 26:1, therefore the images are in the public domain because it is one of the following:

  • An image of a banknote which has been demonetized in terms of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Act Chapter 22:10 or
  • An image of a coin or the artistic work defining the design of a coin.

The actual text reads: "the term of such copyright shall be the period from the date on which such bank notes or coin are issued until such bank notes or coin are demonetized in terms of the said Act."

Theoretically this means that notes up to the second dollar are in public domain and do not fall under fair use rules. By the way, I draw your attention to this debate. --Marianian (talk) 20:21, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Think about thisEdit

thinking about this

I have thought about it many times, and you're right. The same thing could be said of just about any unfree image used on Wikipedia. The fact that German Wikipedia thrives while excluding unfree content, proves that unfree images are not essential. Part of the difficulty is that the terms of use of unfree images is open to interpretation, and while some editors take a lenient line others are more stringent in its application, but it still comes down to interpretation of the policy. I assume you're referring to the picture of Doris Tate and George Bush in the Sharon Tate article? Personally, I think that are comprehensive featured article such as Sharon Tate can hold a limited number of unfree images as part of its comprehensiveness, if they are chosen for a specific purpose, as these ones are. That's not to say that the text would not be understood without the images, but the images make it stronger. The images in this article address points in the text and so they serve a stronger purpose than many decorative images that are tolerated and, in some cases, even endorsed by the community. For example we could understand most album articles without an album cover illustration, and yet they exist in the majority of articles - we even request them when they are not added, and this is despite the fact that the album cover is almost never discussed. Same with films and film posters, books and book covers etc. I think the images in the Sharon Tate article are used with more care and more relevance, but because they don't sit neatly in a little box, they are questioned. But yes, I could easily understand most articles without a picture. Rossrs (talk) 14:02, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

No content in Category:Pages containing media that could be copied to CommonsEdit

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Category:Pages containing media that could be copied to Commons, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Flight 3407Edit

I wasn't referring to a cite.[5] "Unreferenced" just meant the two codes weren't used in the article. The only airport codes in the entire article are part a caption (which uses the full name as well), a reference (same, plus it's part of the formal title), and "BUF", which isn't even the ICAO version. They clutter up the lede, don't clarify anything, and are only of tangential interest in an article about a flight, not the airports. The flight codes aren't even in the lede (9J or CRC 3407 and CO 3407), so why should the airport codes be there? I don't revert anything except blatant vandalism, so please feel free to fix it. Or not. Pat (talk) 20:26, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Removal of information and images?Edit

Hey. I was just wondering, why have you removed a huge chunk of information and images from here when it was relevantly sourced and it was useful info? According to many Swedes it is the best opening at to Melodifestivalen yet. I haven't had time to add info about the interval acts in Heat 1 or 2 yet but I was planning on doing it before Saturday. Surely this information should be included. If we talk about the opening act at Eurovision, why not talk about the opening act at the biggest Swedish programme annually?

{{PD-Kopimi}}Edit

There are some problems with this license. People using the "kopimi" license have clearly not released their work into the public domain, as that is not what it says. Instead, they have given permission for reuse. Do you have any evidence that use of it also allows "freedom to make changes and improvements, and to distribute derivative works"? If it only allows redistribution rights and not the creation of free derivatives, then it is unfree, and works with that license will need a fair use rationale.

'Furu' is not a wordEdit

The understanding I have is that obviously the article title can't be the Kanji of the game's title. However 'Furu' is not a translation of the Kanji, it's a sounding-out of it... which is a best effort speaking of the word 'Full' in Japanese. There are no Ls in Japanese phonetics. The word 'Furu' is the word Full. Just like it's Oha Star Dance Dance Revolution and not 'Sta' which is the sounding-out of the Kanji in that game's title (And Oha is simply an onomatopoeia, there's no English word to turn it into). It just makes more sense to have an article titled after what they were trying to say instead of what they actually said. You should see what the Kanji translates into for Disney's World Dancing Museum ^_-.  æron phone home  13:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Ok, ok, I think he was just blowing off steam. NBC will never open an O&O in Boston. They are having enough problems with the O&Os they have. There's a good chance this Leno thing could fail. They would end up spending more money on an NBC O&O than they would lose if WHDH simply did not air Leno. Remember NBC made this mistake once here where I live. Our own WSVN use to be an NBC station and made a similar move in 1987 where NBC purchased a station here. 20 years later we have WTVJ our NBC O&O in the last place being everything.

Template:Infobox McDonald's‎‎Edit

Hi. I looked at all the article pages where the infobox was used, and I agree with your interpretation of NFCC 8 and the use of the logo. I have modified the template accordingly, and all of the pages using the template. The only place where the trademarked logo appears now is on McDonald's and List of McDonald's trademarks — both appropriate, don't you think? Since that (hopefully) resolves the logo part of the TfD justification, I would appreciate it if you would remove/strike-out that portion of the justification, unless you still feel there is an issue that needs to be resolved on it.

I still don't understand your concern about "prose" in the template space. I understand that the template space is not where article content should be stored, but this is an infobox pre-filled with information about the company. This provides consistency and useful information across a series of articles. All of those articles could be merged into a single, excessively long article, and the infobox would make total sense there. It still makes sense to me including it on each of the smaller articles, since it helps tie the related articles together. By "prose" do you mean that it contains too much static information and not enough dynamic information that is applicable to each individual page on which it's implemented? I can see that as a possible issue. Personally, I think it might be nice to have that full infobox displayed on the main article, some sections of it suppressed on sub-articles, and some new fields that relate more closely to the topic of the article. In other words, keep the core information available on every page, omit the superfluous stuff where it's not needed, and include places for more dynamic content. That sounds good to me, but the place to discuss that is on the template's talk page. I don't see that you even attempted such dialog. Instead, you recommended deletion without a clear reason (at least to me) as to why it was unfixably inappropriate. One of your justifications was fixed in about 6 edits. The other is equally fixable (assuming my interpretation of your prose comment was accurate), though it probably will take more than 6 edits to do so.

Jerem43 and I are quite willing to work on fixing template problems. But it is highly disheartening to have templates we have worked so hard on being nominated for deletion without even being given a chance to improve them first. (Note: I didn't actually work on this template prior to TfD, but being a member of the WikiProject Food and Drink, I am happy to offer my support as needed.) I mention this so that you know we are committed, active participants and editors who care, not newbies blindly creating inappropriate content. :-) Have a good weekend! --Willscrlt (→“¡¿Talk?!”) 17:26, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

logosEdit

You tubeEdit

From WP:YOUTUBE: Most YouTube videos containing copyrighted material (outside of the official YouTube channels of organizations and entertainment/news media companies) do not have permission of the copyright owners. Each such link must be evaluated for inclusion with due care on a case-by-case basis.

Even the guideline you link to argues that inclusion of such material should be judged on a case by case basis. I am fully aware of the reluctance to link to You Tube and the like, and with good reason, however in this specific case, the video (which is very easily justifiable as fair use, and yes, I am fully aware that Wikipedia's policies are stricter than US and Canadian fair use law) adds significant value to the article, especially as words alone cannot sufficiently convey the scope of the incident in the way the video can. As such, in the case of Punch-up in Piestany, I have restored the link, and I would ask that you not remove it again without consensus support to do so. Thanks, Resolute 14:33, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Fair enough on the present removal and asking for comment on the talk page, I'll leave that as is. We could ask related wikiprojects to weigh in on the issue, however I suspect most will answer based on the link's value to the topic rather than its justification under Wikipedia's copyright policies. Similarly, the anti-You Tube brigade would comment that it should be removed simply for being a You Tube link. So I may just leave it as is for now, with your argument and my argument present, and if interested people wander in and comment on the copyright issue, we can weigh it then.

A7 and schoolsEdit

Notable or not, an article has certain minimum requirements, verifiability and sources independent from the subject are one of those. If it can't be deleted per A7, then those other reasons should be sufficient. Also, if something is highly controversial, then keeping it outright is just as bad an idea as speedy deleting it. The exception for schools is a recent addition to the A7 criterion and did not receive any sort of consensus so it shouldn't be there. WP:ORG has widespread consensus and does apply. - Mgm|(talk) 07:51, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

More on capsEdit

Another source for capitalization standards is WikiProject Albums. WP:ALBUMCAPS has info as well as a link to even more detailed info.

Plus DDR games should be regarded as playable albums and the list of songs in addition to the official soundtracks should follow the standard set by all other album articles.  æron phone home  03:19, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

How much of contribution have you imparted for the article? Donot take credit for something which you haven't worked on.

CALogo.pngEdit

Hi there,

Could I get some details on your challenge to CALogo.png being fair use to use on wikipedia? Admittedly I am not familiar with all the rules of wikipedia, but it seems logical to me that since I own the logo and I put a note in the discussion page for the image saying "Yes, I put this here and I approve of it being here", then it should be fine, shouldn't it?

Thanks, Andrew —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gurudata (talkcontribs) 15:43, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I'm still a bit confused though. I already have a box in there called "Non-free media use rationale - non-free logo for The Constellation Awards" which I thought addressed everything that is asked for in the link that you sent me. Is there something specific missing? Is the whole thing "wrong"? Are you looking for something completely different? I'm sorry if I seem clueless here, but... well, when it comes to this stuff I am! I just want to permit wikipedia to use this image I own when discussing The Constellation Awards (which I also "own"), any help you can offer on how to do that would be appreciated!

Thanks, Andrew

Wikipedia:Files for deletion/2009 July 11Edit

Poor edit. The debate was closed legitimately, the image was restored when it should not have been. Basically, this comes down to the uploader not being happy his image was deleted; that's not a reason to overturn a closure without discussion. J Milburn (talk) 14:49, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Recent unwatched changesEdit

Hey, I noticed that you voted oppose at the Recent unwatched changes proposal. The proposal is not to list all unwatched pages, but to provide it as part of recent changes, in order of last-edited. From earlier in the discussion, "While technically true, any such vandalism would land the vandal with a kick to the pants, since their edit would float to the very top of this slow-moving list." If by editing the hit list their edit moves to the top where it is easier to notice, it seems that it would be harder to vandalize these pages, not easier. Perhaps I'm missing something, or is that more clear?   M   01:34, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

AfdEdit

See here. You had to know before you submitted this page that this would never meet our standards for notability or reliability. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:34, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

99% of that coverage is from unreliable blogs, the rest is duplication of the same four facts. That is not notability. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:44, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
WP:BLP applies. The standards of reliability under BLP are quite different than standard. Most of those that you claim as reliable are blogs hosted by normal newspapers. They contain opinions, not facts. The only "facts" in there would boil down to two sentences. You have also breached WP:UNDUE. This is a content fork, and a POV content fork. I can go on, but you are breaching many, many guidelines and policies right now. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:53, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Did I mention "one event"? No. I stated BLP. BLP applies to -all- pages dealing with living subjects. It states that sources must be extremely reliable. Not somewhat reliable. These sources fail BLP standards. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:12, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I said 99% unreliable. The BCC only contains to what amounts to two sentences on wiki. Any more is speculative and inappropriate. The information is the same provided in all of the other reliable sources. Thus, no notability. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:38, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Though I don't really care all that much, your comment "admin decided, what he says goes" in the edit summary is incorrect. Admins are users trusted with a few extra buttons because the community has decided we aren't vandals and aren't likely to delete the main page or block Jimbo. Admins are not gods or absolute monarchs - just because an admin closes an AFD doesn't mean that the decision isn't completely wrong and that an out of process close can't be overturned. It's obvious that this article is going to exist at some point in time, but closing a contentious debate early only contributes to bad blood - it's better to let the thing run. --B (talk) 03:47, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Minor edit usageEdit

  Please remember to mark your edits as minor if (and only if) they genuinely are minor edits (see Help:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting changes, or rearranging of text without modifying content should be flagged as a 'minor edit.' Thank you.

This edit was not a minor edit, and you did not give a reason for your edit. You also removed Pictures of relevant content matter, such as pictures of Allaire Homesite, which has been discussed as prior art.Scientus (talk) 00:39, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

  • For better or worse, it is best that the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/National Portrait Gallery copyright conflicts remain visible, so all may see the discourse on the topic.

FSDEdit

  Please do not delete content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Fox Sports Detroit, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. TomCat4680 (talk) 21:52, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

  You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Fox Sports Detroit. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. TomCat4680 (talk) 21:58, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

"Phineas and Ferb's Christmas Vacation"Edit

Hey; saw you created this article and I have to say very nice work so far. :) However, I, personally, do not think it's ready to be created yet — this is simply based on the fact that it hasn't aired yet, which I believe is a no-no as per WP:Crystal ball. Therefore, I'd suggest moving it to your sandbox, but that's just me. Also, I'd like to note that I've also had plans on creating the article and would love to collaborate with you on it.

Re Talk:NetResultEdit

I've declined the speedy deletion tag you placed on this article. As a general rule, comments on talk pages are held to a less stringent standard than material in articles; I wouldn't delete a talk page unless there was a really strong reason. The material I saw didn't meet the "nonsense" guideline, which is quite specific. "The basic rule ... is, that you should not strike out or delete the comments of other editors without their permission." I agree that the material in question only seemed tangentially useful, but it wasn't offensive. If you have any questions or problems, feel free to leave me a note.

You are now a ReviewerEdit

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 01:17, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Handy LightEdit

A tag has been placed on Handy Light requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for web content. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Stifle (talk) 19:51, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Handy LightEdit

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

Re: June 2011Edit

I am not in an edit war. Could you please explain to me how that is the case? I was not technically "reverting" anyone's edits. I was doing minor grammar and spelling edits to fix valid and clear mistakes. And a few times adding information into the article which was taken out by edits, which are valid information to add. For example, I added the CORRECT link to the article for Discovery World TV channel and added rebranding dates into the infobox, which was correct and valid. I also find it interesting that the user who I am supposedly in an edit war with is warning me about being in a edit war. Maybe it should be the other way around because that user (you) were reverting valid and correct edits. Who's disrupting here? Hmmm.... 99.253.251.176 (talk) 01:52, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of My EBTEdit

 

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 My EBT requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Vrenator (talk) 15:40, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

My EBTEdit

Restored. I'd recommend getting a few more sources. It may have cleared speedy on further review, but it doesn't mean it'll clear AfD. Kwsn (Ni!) 22:07, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

SkyCableEdit

Hi, I would like to seek your help regarding the article SkyCable. User Webwires who I think the long-term editor and maintainer of the article is insisting that the page is for the cable TV brand. But don't you think it is better [for Wikipedia] if we relegate the article into the company ones and for all? Instead of the cable TV brand, we could assign it to the company and moved skycable, skybroadband, etc... into sub articles. Also a concern of mine is the tone of the page. Obviously Wikipedia is not a directory nor a place to advertise a cable service, don't you think we should make the article more encyclopedic? Thank you. I hope we could make Wikipedia a better place. -My Page (Contact me) 12:35, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
