Welcome[edit]

Hello there, welcome to the 'pedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you need any questions answered about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or drop me a line. Cheers! --maveric149


Hey Absecon, just wanted to let you know you're doing a kick-ass job. Keep up the good work. DanKeshet


Er, these "X v. Y" articles don't contain any information (except for the judge, sometimes). I hope you'll fill them up with some data? Otherwise, they're pretty useless... --Magnus Manske 19:17 Jan 14, 2003 (UTC)


Greetings! Long time not getting around to talking... Sorry about not filling up the pages on Supreme Court Cases so fast... will do soon. Thanks for the support, guys... I'll be hanging around. I fill them in once I get some information on them, and it's a piecemeal job while I myself learn about the cases. The fact is, there just isn't much anyone's doing on the Supreme Court Cases themselves, and the area needs some bolstering. So I figured I'd kick in whatever I can. --Absecon 59


Can I ask you to rethink your year in sports pages. The use of the word sports like this is never used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and much of the English speaking word. It's an American thing. We talk about sport rather than sports. Mintguy


Hello. I made a minor change on Brown v. Board of Education, where it was in my view innacurate. I discussed the point on the talk page. As you are the main author of the page, I leave a message so that you may check. Could you please tell me whether I am right? Feel free to write in english here (my talk page on fr wikipedia)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Images[edit]

Hi Absecon. I notice you've uploaded a bunch of images. Thanks! You need to provide more information about them, though. For example, you need to indicate where you got each image (if you made it yourself, say how! Scanner? Or what type of camera?). Also, you need to add a copyright tag ({{GFDL-self}} for images you made). Please drop a note at my talk page if you have any questions. dbenbenn | talk 20:28, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Image:1851-O GD.jpg[edit]

Thanks for adding the GFDL information to the above images. Would it be possible for you to use the tags listed at Wikipedia:Copyright tags, as I have now done on the upload page. Pages which do not employ one of these specific tags get included in a project tpo tag untagged images ... writing out the GFDL in full, as you did, would mean that your image gets caught up in that project, leading to unnecessary additional work. Check out the implementation of the tag in the text of the page by looking at it in edit mode, should you be uncertain how it all works. Thanks --Tagishsimon (talk)

Image deletion[edit]

The images I listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion are not used on the New Orleans Mint Page. The same images with different file names are on the Mint page. Check closely. You have uploaded duplicate images with different file names.

Some of the pictures used on the Mint page still have no source. Please correct this or they may be deleted in the future. Always tag images when you upload them. Thanks. Nv8200p 16:40, 4 August 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:MississippiStateCapitol.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MississippiStateCapitol.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images on Wikipedia is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. You can get help on image copyright tagging from Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. -- Carnildo 16:19, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:BaileyMagnet.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:BaileyMagnet.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. Please go to its page to provide the necessary information on the source or licensing of this image (if you have any), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Ytny 22:55, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
For your fair use rationale, you wrote, "as a work of art, it is available for fair use under the accompanying license", but that only applies in articles that actually discusses the article itself, not the way you're using the image in Jackson, Mississippi. And there is nothing to indicate that the copyright owner has given permission for use (there's probably a copyright notice on the back of the postcard). Ytny 22:55, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Also, on Image:MississippiStateCapitol.jpg, you do not own the copyright to a postcard. It belongs to the publisher or the photographer of the postcard and fair use applies only when discussing the postcard itself, not what's pictured on the postcard. Cheers. Ytny 23:08, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Category:People with handlebar moustaches[edit]

Isn't rather trivial and unencyclopedic? I am minded to put it up if WP:CFD, but thought that I should first ask whether you might have an explanation of why you think it's worth including. --BrownHairedGirl 14:58, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Many people are identifiable by their distinctive facial features, including handlebar moustaches, in much the same way that people are identified by the fact that they are from, for example, a particular U.S. State. I mean, the fact that Rollie Fingers has a handlebar moustache is, in my opinion, no less important than listing the fact that he's in the category for Major league baseball players from Ohio. We can say in both instances "who cares?" but, this being an encyclopedia, I think part of the point of creating such categories is to identify the similarities people/things share with others. Absecon 59 04:02, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

I will admit, it does seem rather trivial, but I love it, i say keep it, and create more on different types of moustaches maybe, i'd like to see a list of people with a Fu Manchu. or maybe even do one on mullets, I would like to find out how many famous people actually have mullets.

Keep up the good work --Jadger 23:01, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:2ndBankofUSSouthFacade.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:2ndBankofUSSouthFacade.JPG. Wikipedia gets thousands 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. 03:04, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Emory.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.

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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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.

License tagging for Image:PennText6.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:PennText6.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands 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:

Fair use rationale for Image:PaulSimon-Front.jpg[edit]

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.

Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 04:46, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:PaulSimon-Front.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:PaulSimon-Front.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. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. 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.

Meridian, Mississippi[edit]

Hi Absecon. I'm not sure if you're still active, but I have a question. I've been working on the Meridian, Mississippi article for the past year or so, and I'm working towards getting it to FA status. This was ages ago (nearly 4 years), but you added some information about Media and Publishing in this edit, and I was wondering if by some amazingly awesome memory you remembered where you got it from? I live in Meridian, and the only newspaper I know of is the Meridian Star. I've never heard of ANY of the others that you added (which btw have stayed there ever since). Also, I was wondering if maybe you knew of a source that I could get information like this from. This section is the only one left that I have yet to expand, so it would be of great help if you could contribute! Thanks for your time! --Dudemanfellabra (talk) 02:00, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Wow.. Duh haha. I've looked all over that site for a lot of information, but I didn't even think to look there for media information. The city's website only lists the Meridian Star and the East MS Business Journal, but I tried calling the EMBJ, and their phone number is not in operation. Also, their website is no longer active, so I think the journal is out of business. Also, there are several other errors on the city website such as listing the radio stations affiliated with "The Radio People" under the wrong section, so I'm not sure how recent the information is. Thanks for the suggestion, though! --Dudemanfellabra (talk) 04:15, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection 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.

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. Karanacs (talk) 17:08, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:I Am A Rock 45.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:I Am A Rock 45.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.
