How to see a list of the pages in a namespace

To see a list of all of the pages in a namespace (the main namespace has 6,179,778 articles, plus millions of disambiguation pages and redirects), click on Special pages in the toolbox menu on the left side-bar of your screen. At the top of the list that appears is the entry All pages. Click on that, and a pull down menu (to select a namespace) and a search box for entering a starting pagename appears. The namespace listing will start at whatever spelling you place in the searchbox.

To get a list of only pages starting with a particular string of characters, click on All pages with prefix instead.

To access these pages by link, use [[Special:AllPages]] and [[Special:PrefixIndex]].

Orphaned non-free image File:Gimme Some Volume.jpegEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Gimme Some Volume.jpeg. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 03:30, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Gimme Some VolumeEdit

If you are going to remove the redirect then please make an attempt to find some proper sources for the article – all the current sources are either just track listings or links to streaming websites, and none of them constitute reliable sources. If this article isn't improved it will be redirected again. Thank you. Richard3120 (talk) 21:09, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:NSFAS Student Portal screenshot 2020-02-29.pngEdit

 

Thank you for uploading File:NSFAS Student Portal screenshot 2020-02-29.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.

This bot DID NOT nominate any file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 01:00, 1 March 2020

Global WarmingEdit

What can we do to avoid Global Warming? Ibanathi ngetu (talk) 21:32, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Excuse my ignorance but I don't believe in climate change I think what's happening all the ice melting was suppose to happen, if it's real to avoid it I think they should stop with the emissions (and be more electric) or try to reduce how we do things that cause the global warming WIKIZILE (talk) 22:18, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
