Let's get started[edit]

I've been impressed by the tremendous work on the page about Serial Experiments Lain. I'm looking forward working on an article with you.


Cultural depictions of Joan of Arc[edit]

Hi, thanks very much for your addition. I noticed on the Serial Experiments Lain talk page you doubted whether the listing is appropriate. Another editor added the title and I haven't seen the series. If you don't think the character in this series is patterned after Joan of Arc, please delete the entry from the list. I appreciate your help! Best wishes, Durova 04:59, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Lain[edit]

First step would be to read through the article and identify anything that appears to be original research or needs a citation. I don't see any citations for anything in the article after a brief glance. Themes, Publications and other media, and Allusions all should have citations. After that is done, go found citations to back up the claims or remove the claims if a citation can't be found (see WP:CITE and WP:FOOT).

Looking at the article, I don't see a section on critical or public reception. There is also no information about Lain's influences other works or culturally. Commentary from the producer, director, creator, and/or the VAs would also be good, with proper citations. --TheFarix (Talk) 23:24, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Unfortunatly, I can't really help you with the sources unless it is from one of the backissues of Newtype USA that I have. --TheFarix (Talk) 20:26, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't really have an opinion on where the link to the list of episodes should be. It's unlikely that we'll be able to find the full text of Susan J Napier's paper on Evangelion and Lain, as the journal's official site removed the full text at the author's request. - Malkinann 07:31, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

There's no scifi wikiproject that you could ask, but maybe someone at WP:ANIME might have it, or know of english-language journals that routinely publish articles on anime and manga? Your best bet would probably be to get your hands on a copy of Napier's book. I don't know anyone who's really good at copyediting, but you could try using Tony's exercises for more help. I think you really need to split off the playstation game, because it will give the rest of the article more room to breathe. The game article may not get very much bigger, but it may later. - Malkinann 23:14, 5 December 2006 (UTC)


Re: $yD! & Serial Experiments Lain[edit]

My appologies for bringing up the "New Messages" bar. I was patrolling the recent changes using Lupin's anti-vandal bot. A lot of serious vandalism was going on, when I goofed up with the buttons. Thus, the warning ended up on your page instead of the vandal's. Sorry for the operator error. Keep up with the great work you've been doing lately. Cheers and happy editing!--thunderboltz(Deepu) 16:31, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

redundancy page[edit]

Hi, thanks for your comments. I've incorporated your suggestion into the hint in Exercise 4e. It's exactly the processing that we want to encourage in writers (identifying opportunities for shrinking sentences), but I'm concerned that your suggestion makes the statement stronger than the original ("challenged the government" versus "has been a challenge for", which implies intermittent/among other things, rather than all-encompassing challenge). Thanks. Tony 01:42, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

I do hope that we see more of you in the FAC and FAR/C rooms. We need more language critiqueing there to raise the standards of writing on WP. Tony 15:58, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Sat-Tan[edit]

Hi, $yD!, thanks for the link on Sat-Tan. Unfortunately, it doesn't give any clear idea of the source of the information without which I can't tell whether it is just one person's view. Any ideas?

--Mike 14:23, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Text[edit]

Hey, can I use the photo (is it licensed?) for Wikipedia, which we doing an article on Kunio Okawara, if it is licensed, then can you give me the link to the contact who posted up that photo of Kunio??

Thanks for translating it for me Rakuten06 13:28, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Clarification[edit]

I am not sure what you meant by your comment on my talk page - could you clarify it?-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  19:43, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I certainly don't mind any mediation, in fact, I welcome help and comments from other editors - which is why I started a discussion at ANI seeking input - and there Ghirlandajo mentioned the discussion on my talk page you commented at and called your edit (presumably, see below) a 'reprimand of my behaviour'. Thus I wanted to clarify if you indeed support him and reprimand me, or did he misintepret your post; you may want to clarify that at ANI (to be more specific, Ghirla wrote: Within last hour or so, your behaviour was reprimanded by several wikipedians on your talk page. Several equals to him, M.K. and presumably you... :/ -- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  22:24, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Serial Experiments Lain[edit]

Hi $yD!! (I dunno how to pronounce that.) I sincerely appreciate you asking, but I am working on one project right now, and I don't think I'll have the time before the FAC likely ends to help. Additionally, I'm not comfortable with the subject matter, so I may not be your best bet here. Have you tried asking some other people who are in the copy review business?: Deckiller, Spangineer, Rlevse. (I'm partially copying from a list I saw user SandyGeorgia leave.) Good luck, – Outriggr § 00:15, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi there SidiLemine! I think it was you who put in the request for me to copy edit Serial Experiments Lain (the note was signed by an IP, but I assumed it was you). Unfortunately, I'm kind of busy these days working on a personal project of mine (overhauling and improving Peter Jennings), and have had little time to proofread/copyedit FACs. Hopefully some other good copy editors who aren't so busy can help improve the article. Good luck with the FAC! Gzkn 03:16, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Hmmm...perhaps ALoan? That's the only user I can think of off the top of my head that Outriggr didn't mention...there are probably more out there though. Thanks for wikilinking nepotism! :) Gzkn 12:18, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
See if you can get a hold of User:Taw, you may need to resort to E-mail ;-) Kim Bruning 21:06, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Susan Napier[edit]

Hi Gwern! Thanks a lot for the offer about the article. As I say on the Lain talk page, it's issue 88 of Science Fiction Studies, that is, part 3 of volume 29. It's from November 2002. I don't have the page number, but the article name is When the Machines Stop: Fantasy, Reality, and Terminal Identity in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Serial Experiments Lain, by Susan J. Napier. I appreciate the effort. Having this one would make Wikipedia the most comprehensive source about Lain on earth. If that's not what WP's about, I don't know what is. :)--SidiLemine 16:42, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I went to my library today; alas, there were no electronic copies to be had, of any sort, because they carried Science Fiction Studies.... so I just scanned in all 17 pages or whatever. I can't put them on Wikipedia or Commons, for obvious reasons. Do you want me to email you the PNGs? If so, email me with the desired address; and remember, each PNG is about 3 megabytes, so make sure your email service can handle that. --Gwern (contribs) 03:21 7 December 2006 (GMT)
Don't know how to reduce the size and still keep it readable, I'm afraid. They should be wafting their way through the ether to you now. --Gwern (contribs) 14:38 7 December 2006 (GMT)
Did you give me the right address? I sent'em to lecomptoirdutabac@yahoo.com but all I got back was a Yahoo daemon telling me that address doesn't exist. --Gwern (contribs) 19:15 7 December 2006 (GMT)
After a lot of work, I discovered file upload services and got one to work; your magical link is to FileHO. Hope this works. --Gwern (contribs) 19:06 8 December 2006 (GMT)

I have the Napier Lain/Eva article too :-) User:GunnarRene/Sources#Science fiction. --GunnarRene 14:19, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Lain FAC[edit]

Sidi, I'd be happy to assist, but this month might not be good in terms of free time. I'll see what I can do. Grm_wnr helped me a lot with Excel Saga's FAC, so perhaps drop him a line? If it doesn't make it through the first time, it seems like you've got a good basis to resubmit the nomination in a few weeks' time. I find appearances to be important in FACs, though maybe that's just me, so some thoughts you might want to consider are:

  • Reorganizing "List of SEL episodes" into an article titled "List of SEL media" and move most of the "Publications and other media" there. That would reduce the amount of text in the main article not covered by citation and also make the episode-list article a little more important in its own right.
  • Perhaps combining "Characters" and "Plot." If you go that route, I would mention only the most important voice actors in the main article, and create a table of all roles/voice-actors in "List of SEL episodes" or whatever.
  • This will vary from computer to computer based on screen-size and user-settings, but the arrangement of the large number of images in "Characters" is distracting. An alternative might be to use the image gallery function to present all of them at one go.
  • Newtype-USA did a DVD review of Lain in January 2005, so see if you can find a friend or editor who has that copy to cite in the article. I think Nihonjoe has all of the Newtypes-USA, so poke around his userpage.

I know these are significant changes, and my suggestions have proven controversial in past FACs, so you might want to discuss these with other editors involved in the nomination. Nevertheless, doing the first two helped me get Excel Saga featured. I hope these help! If I have time, I'll have a try at copy-editing.--Monocrat 17:17, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Will be happy to help. I'll give the writing a going-over some time this evening. Soo

Serial Experiment Lain FAC[edit]

Hi Sidi, nice of you to ask. The article certainly needs a lot of FAC level copyediting. I won't have time in the near future, but will try to add some comments and make some changes on the weekend. I recommend that you close the FAC and resubmit it though once changes have been made. There seems to be an awful lot of areas where you could improve this article. That's my 2 cents.--P-Chan 13:54, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Conference article[edit]

Hiya. I in no way assumed you were an islamist-negationist nazi (great phrase, btw!). As to your thoughts about the article being POV, I respectfully disagree. The article accurately describes the conference and its attendees. The student protests, for example: I saw an article that saiod "thousands". The fact that even one went on record as saying that they were in part caused by this conference justifies placing that in the article (IMO). Iran is not a place where people can speak freely, so that alone makes it noteworthy. This is a fun article to edit, I must say. The POV I see in the article is the mirroring of the conference itself. It is organized and attended by hate-mongering neo-Nazi anti-Semitic bigots. We don't have do do anything to shift POV--they did it for us! Jeffpw 13:35, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm sure I could find supporters of the conference, but it wouldn't change the thrust. I mean, anyone supporting this debacle would most probably be identified as anti-Semitic by several sources already, and that would be put next to their names. I shall try to find some supporters, though. Jeffpw 14:56, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Good luck in finding some! I found one kook supporter who was willing to say this was a good idea. Maybe you'll get lucky and someone of the caliber of Mother Theresa or Princess Diana will speak up for this conference's merits, but I doubt it. That said, I am sure, if we're patient, that George W. Bush will make a statement of support when he thinks the microphones are turned off. :-s Jeffpw 15:36, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Lain[edit]

I read through it and didn't find much in the way of typos, etc. A few things but not much. Sounds like an interesting series. Good luck getting it to featured status. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs) 17:07, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not really into Japanese anime, but I don't have anything against it (unlike my husband who hates anime with a passion (he had a bad experience with a college roomate who did nothing but watch Dragon Ball Z and Braveheart over and over and over again)). This sounds really interesting though; I am into philosophy, science fiction, and fantasy, and this sounds like it combines elements of those with anime in a unique way. I might try to find it at Blockbuster. It'll just have to watch it when my husband's not home. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs) 17:40, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Jews at 2006 Iran Holocaust conference.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Jews at 2006 Iran Holocaust conference.jpg. The image description page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image 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 '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 any fair use images 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.

Re:Lain FAC again[edit]

Sure, I'll take a look again.-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  15:27, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Newtype USA[edit]

Hi Rene!

Thanks for getting the Napier article, that's appreciated. I've got it myself by now, and I think it will be great material for future work on anime, particularly when we finally get to the task of having NGE GA and FA! I was told that there is a review of Lain in the January 2005 edition of Newtype USA. Any chance you might get me a copy of that, or maybe a review of the review? Thanks anyway :)--SidiLemine 12:31, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have it. There are three other users listed on my page who have it though. Perhaps you can ask them: User:GunnarRene/Sources#Newtype_USA. --GunnarRene 12:41, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Newtype USA[edit]

Hi Farix. I am close to FAC with Lain, and one of the only ressources I'm still lacking is the Newtype USA review of January 2005. Could you possibly get me a copy of it, or maybe a review of the review :)?--SidiLemine 12:53, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

It's your typical puff piece from Newtype USA. Basically, it announces that the series is out in a 13-episode box set and gives a basic plot summery. The only thing that you may find useful are the final two paragraphs.
Remove the quotes when you are finished with it. --TheFarix (Talk) 21:06, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
Quotes have been used and removed. Thank you so much again.--SidiLemine 11:09, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Lain[edit]

Congratulations :) Glad I could help. — Deckiller 23:21, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, congratulations in getting Lain to FA. :) Good luck in taking on Eva - if you like, let me know when you put it up for peer review. - Malkinann 06:28, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Enter the Wu-Tang[edit]

Hello $yD!. After consulting User:Tutmosis, I was wondering if you could copyedit an article for me. I want you to help me bring Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) to featured status. Apparently you are talented at copyediting (at least according to Tutmosis), and I hope that you can benefit the aforementioned article. Thanks.Noahdabomb3 20:53, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Wiki participation[edit]

Hi Sidi. I would like to discuss with you. We can do it via talk or via Yahoo (I am trex132 on yahoo). As you can see from my talk page, I am currently involved in an arbitration and WP:ANI discussion regarding an arbitrary block of an editor I had a disagreement with. I find it highly ironic that I would pursue arbitration to reinstate a user who has irritated me on more thanone occasion, but I strongly feel that abuse of administrative power is more destructive to Wikipedia than any disruptive editor could ever be. In any event, if you want to discuss the Wikipedia project, I would thoroughly enjoy it. Through our discussions on the Iran Holocaust Conference article, I have come to respect you and your opinions. Your input would be appreciated. Sincerely, Jeffpw 12:48, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

RahXephon[edit]

Hi GunnarRene. I was wondering if you still had work to do on RahXephon. The peer Review seems to have calmeddown, and My personnal guess is that the LoCE will act more promptly if the request is move to "AFC needs CE". Would you rather waitbefore you put it up to FAC? It's "your baby", so I'll go with whatever you say, but I'm pretty eager to see what the FAC people will say.--SidiLemine 15:08, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, if we got the whole shebang through copyedit I might go to FAC as fast as possible, since a good copy-edit should not go to waste. If that doesn't happen, however, I might have a treat in store for the legacy section. (See the to-do-list.) Additionally, I would like to run through the check-list and spell check one last time. --GunnarRene 16:55, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

NGE[edit]

I see what you're saying about the quantity of sources; I'm just concerned about the quality of them. Even though this is a pop-culture article, I'd really hate to rely on out-and-out fan-sites, even for statements about fan-reactions. My personal test is: 1) Is it commercial? 2) If not, does the author or site have reasonable credentials? Anyway, the biggest weakness, I think, will be the lack of Japanese reactions. This isn't Excel Saga, that was relatively cult even among anime fans. This is Evangelion. My Japanese professor, who was probably here in the States getting her doctorate when Eva first came out, knows about the show. Fortunately, this is Eva, so there is a mass of articles in Newtype-USA and elsewhere. Perhaps I'm just prattling on pointlessly. :)--Monocrat 19:38, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Mea Culpa[edit]

Hi again -- just wanted to drop you a note and apologize for suddenly disappearing during your Lain FAR. I was planning to be around, but wound up off-wiki for a about a month due to having a family member in hospital unexpectedly. I should most likely be easier to get a hold of in the future, and I'm glad to see the article was eventually promoted -- I would have certainly supported it the second time around, as it looks much better. If I can make it up to you by helping you out with anything in the future let me know. Thanks for the good work and happy editing, -- Bailey(talk)

Copyedit request[edit]

Hi there! I saw your name in a list of the League of Copyeditors. I'm about to send Same-sex marriage in Spain to FAC for the first time. Would you terribly mind copyediting it before I do? Peer review revealed prose issues that needed addressing by a good copyeditor, which is why I'm here asking for your help. Pretty please? :) I'd be willing to help you in exchange with anything you might need. I've seen you have an interest in anime, so do I. Maybe I can help with one of your articles? Cheers and thanks for your time Raystorm 13:49, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks very much for your help! I'm liking a lot how the article looks like now. I'll try to enlist other copyeditors as well as you said, but I'm very grateful for your assistance. Any little bit helps. :) If you need help with anything, drop me a line at my talk page okay? Cheers! Raystorm 22:43, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi there... I still haven't downloaded the Zuma game (i've rarely been on a windows box these days), but i did manage to get the Azumanga Daioh series full (i should be able to tell you soon about what i think of it).

The Wikipedia Discovery[edit]

I'm such a noob... I'm only getting, at last, how the categories work... Or at least so do i think.

Anyway, losing time here really isn't a loss of time, i guess... I'm doomed! arikel 00:12, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

46px This user heard the Word of Captain Mosey.




I couldn't resist, after looking at that page. Really excellent. I don't know if the picture will remain, though... As you may see, i put the katakana version of Lain to fit in the userbox, instead of her pretty face. arikel 12:04, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Working (and Taxes) in the USA[edit]

Salaries stated in job postings are gross. Your actual take-home pay depends on too many variables for employers to guess at.

Tool at FAC[edit]

Hi!

Well, after working on the article for some hours and addressing the issues raised in your peer review as best as I could, I nominated Tool (band) for FA. I'd welcome you to join the discussion at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Tool (band) :) Johnnyw talk 20:47, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

You added parameters to the math rating template on Talk:Antiisomorphism but didn't use an edit summary. Probably several other people, including me, will have to look up your diff to see whether you asked a question, vandalized the page, etc. All that time could be saved if you used a short edit summary to describe your edit. — Carl (CBM · talk) 13:30, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Good to meet you, by the way. The only reason I would worry about vandalism is that I didn't recognize your user name. The more common things to see on talk pages are reports of errors and questions about the content, so I pay attention when a talk page edit comes on my watchlist. — Carl (CBM · talk) 13:53, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Your message[edit]

The 'removal' of stuff was talk page cleanup and occured becuase the issues with the image concerned were resolved.

Re: GA Hold for Apache[edit]

I was almost going to fail the article, really, but there was a bit of a spat on the discussion page when I put it on hold - I don't know if you noticed? I think you would have, given I just saw the talk page Review notice. I regret passing it now especially since it's on review - but I just thought, why risk being given a headache from those users if I realize that there are plenty of sources, just not inline? I think I've learned something from this, thanks for asking on my usertalk and giving me a chance to explain my bad review. Cheers, Corvus coronoides talk 23:41, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Susan Napier's article[edit]

Hello, I'm a Wikipedian from zh:. Recently I'm trying to do some improvements to the NGE article in zh. Long ago I knew the Napier article When the Machines Stop: Fantasy, Reality, and Terminal Identity in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Serial Experiments Lain. And I think a anime article really needs some critical POV, so Napier's article would be very helpful for improving the quality of the Chinese article, and I also value this very much. But I can't find the article anywhere with any online method. I've asked Gwern but he couldn't find those PNGs. So I want to know if your have a copy? (my email = sicaral-gmail-com) Thank you! Sicaral 21:43, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Oh! Thank you so much!! But.. "translate it in english"? Sorry I don't quite get it. Can you say again? Anyhow, I'm very glad to do things for EVA. Sicaral 18:55, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I mean I just want to have a look at that article. Hey, I'm not too bad at translating, anyway. =V= Sicaral 11:09, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
Hello! Have you got some clues about that article as of yet? I guess this is not an easy job. Sicaral 10:38, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Handloading[edit]

The reference that I put in was Nonte's Basic Handloading, which really applies to most of the article. I'm not really sure what to do in a case like that, because if I did use it as a reference, I'd have to tag half the lines in the article with it. I can do that, but it will take a while. scot 14:06, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

OK, I'll see what I can do. scot 15:19, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

League of Copyeditors roll call[edit]

150px Greetings from the League of Copyeditors. Your name is listed on our members page, but we are unsure how many of the people listed there are still active contributors to the League's activities. If you are still interested in participating in the work of the League, please follow the instructions at the members page to add your name to the active members list. Once you have done that, you might want to familiarise yourself with the new requests system, which has replaced the old /proofreading subpage. As the old system is now deprecated, the main efforts of the League should be to clear the substantial backlog which still exists there.
The League's services are in as high demand as ever, as evinced by the increasing backlog on our requests pages, both old and new. While FA and GA reviewers regularly praise the League's contributions to reviewed articles, we remain perennially understaffed. Fulfilling requests to polish the prose of Wikipedia's highest-profile articles is a way that editors can make a very noticeable difference to the appearance of the encyclopedia. On behalf of the League, if you do consider yourself to have left, I hope you will consider rejoining; if you consider yourself inactive, I hope you will consider returning to respond to just one request per week, or as many as you can manage. Merry Christmas and happy editing, The League of Copyeditors.

Fair use rationale for Image:PSX-Lain.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:PSX-Lain.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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 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. Project FMF (talk) 14:43, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Serial Experiments Lain (video game)[edit]

Curtana talk page[edit]

Hi $yD. You placed the biography template on Talk:Curtana, as well as the BRoy template. An article about a sword isn't a biography. If there was an article about the specific Curtana used in the Crown Jewels, it may fall under the BRoy template, but as this is just an article about the Curtana in general, it's not appropriate for BRoy. Thanks, PeterSymonds | talk 12:23, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

No probs. Best, PeterSymonds | talk 20:52, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Sortition:Kirlston[edit]

You recently, some would go as far as to say, fixed an issue in Sortition regarding the possibly non-NPOV use of fair.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Angelofdarknesscover.jpg}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Angelofdarknesscover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.
