License tagging for Image:J A Artigas1.jpgEdit
Thanks for uploading Image:J A Artigas1.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.
For more information on using images, see the following pages:
This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 12:05, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
Regarding the cabal caseEdit
I've left a note on the IP's talk page, but I don't know whether s/he will be dissuaded (or if s/he'll read it =\). However, if the behavior continues, it may be best to contact an administrator, or if they are reverting over three times in one day, there's a three revert rule. It's hard to deal with if there's no response from the other side, but we can try. --Keitei (talk) 16:42, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Hello good friend! So it seems you are having a conflict with an anonymous user, which is why I'm here to help you out. I decided to take the case you reported at Wikipedia:Mediation Cabal. I'm moving this discussion to my talk page, I like to keep all of my discussion-stuff on my page for organization. Thanks! -- Kurds 01:11, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
I try to keep it informative, but light-hearted. :-) Just out of curiosity, where exactly did you stumble across my name. Did you want to take a hack at my riddle? — BQZip01 — talk 18:15, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
Request for assistanceEdit
As someone with whom I have reviewed or worked with on an article or talk page, I humbly request your assistance in reviewing the Aggie Bonfire page for Featured Article status. Any/all constructive input is welcomed and appreciated on the FAC nomination page, but please read the instructions for reviewing before you make a comment. Thanks in advance for your assistance. — BQZip01 — talk 05:35, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
You have been reported to Wikipedia Administration for violation of 3RR. This violation can lead to temporary suspensions. If you continue to edit the page now that you have been warned, you possibly face a longer suspension of your account. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 09:26, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
The anonymous user keeps on deleting my references; he even goes to my 3RR complain and deletes my comments stating it´s vandalism (they were clearly distinguised by bold letters), and deleting my 4th revert report. I think he´s getting too personal about this. He insists on saying there are no references, when I have provided links and examples of lyrics (by the way, he hasn´t provided a single reference).
As I told, he deleted my 4th revert report and my comments, which were clerly differentiated in order not to make them appear as his.
I need you advice to end this up civilly.
- This user has been wikistalking me for the last week. He's editing my comments on the noticeboards and refuses to sign, he's edit warring without providing references. I'm following the rules by requesting references and asking that he not edit my noticeboard comments. The guy has yet to post an actual ref tag. A little help here? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:15, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
I signed all my comments; stop the references issue: please read them, and then we may discuss peacefully. If you want, I´ll give you a hand with the translation. What more references do I need?. Which is the problem about them?. The format?.--Xareu bs (talk) 10:20, 21 February 2008 (UTC).
Kingdom of GaliciaEdit
Xareu, I´m very surprised for your attacks over "Kingdom of Galicia", I´m author of the traslation from Portuguese and French articles, why are you destroying the article?, I saw now the article kingdom of Asturias, and I think Kingdom of Galicia and Kingdom of Asturias are diferents names for same kingdom during a specific period. Are you destroying that article intentionally?, it seems, I wait for your answer, please.--Nuninho Martins (talk) 11:24, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Many thanks for your explanation Xareu, but I´m just translating a article from other wikipedia (Portuguese and French mainly), I saw this article in Galician language and I could understand it but obviously it´s easier in Portuguese for me. I don´t know if it was created by Asturian nationalists or Galician nationalists or Cantabrians or Castilians or Spaniards or by who, I just know that I´m translating from not one but from two wikipedia, and you should know it wasn´t a easy job, however what is very easy is to remove work realized by other users arguing "it´s not correct", please understand me, the article is now very advanced and I don´t want to discuss if your information is more valid than other. The French and Portuguese wikis are partials and their credibility is indubitable, they aren´t affected by political speeches between Spanish regions nor Spain. I have spent too much time in all this, I don´t go to restore one more time the article, the wikipedia´s credibility must be first and to change it constantly doesn´t help it. I ask you meditation about it. Best regards.--Nuninho Martins (talk) 20:33, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Speedy deletion nomination of TSK (Company)Edit
A tag has been placed on TSK (Company) 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 an organization or company, 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.
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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Blitz, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fuse. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
