Crocus photo[edit]

I did some levels adjustment on it, and I think it stands out better now from the background. I encourage you to include it in the article, but it needs a more complete caption so that other editors understand why you are adding it. Something like "Close-up of a single crocus thread (the dried stigma) from Greece."--Curtis Clark 20:49, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Brown Fur Seal


hi just wondering if know that i have added the three articles you understand what i was trying to add to the page. if not could you maybe give me your thoughts on what you may say instead to improve. thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Patience grasshopper (talkcontribs) 12:52, 30 September 2008 (UTC)


Audiophile pictures[edit]

No big deal, but what I was objecting to was the use of generic photos as illustration, as if we didn't have any idea what a turntable, receiver or pair of headphones looked like. If you're going to put a picture in, make it relevant and specific, like the picture of Sennheiser phones. Yes, that picture was too big, but you can easily fix that by making it smaller: size it to your liking (realizing, of course, that it may look slightly different on someone else's monitor). I don't know the exact syntax—something like "n px" in the image tag—but you can find that by rooting around in the help here. In other words, it's better if the pictures illustrate specific pieces of gear which are identified by captions. ==ILike2BeAnonymous 04:46, 9 July 2006 (UTC)


Rio-Antirio bridge[edit]

Hello Leonard. On the 8th of July I added the Rio-Antirio bridge in Greece under the "Notable Bridges" section, since it is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. You removed it saying "rm anon test". Please have a look at the diff [1]. Was it an accident, or you trully consider my addition irrelevant? Regards, Adamantios 15:57, 11 July 2006 (UTC).

That was an accident - I intended to remove only "Reema Dadbhawala" by 203.94.221.92, and stepped on your edit. Please excuse me, Leonard G. 16:55, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Non-free use disputed for Image:KSR1-logo-small.jpg[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:KSR1-logo-small.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read carefully the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content and then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure 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 04:25, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Issue with Cisco Photos[edit]

Thank you for your note. Actually I used the logo tag because I saw other editors with photos of products using this tag. I updated the photos with what I think is the proper tag and responded to the page you pointed me to. Hopefully this resolves this issue. It would be ashame for the user not to be able to see examples of what these devices look like. --akc9000 (talk contribs count) 12:36, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi Al, thank you for acting quickly. Pardon me for causing trouble, but copyright issues are complicated and potentially harmful for the project. Good luck with this. Regards, Adamantios 07:29, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
No problem at all. Hopefully they are tagged properly now. --akc9000 (talk contribs count) 13:20, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

List of high-end audio equipment manufacturers[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article List of high-end audio equipment manufacturers, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. Erechtheus 14:28, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Main Distribution frame[edit]

The pictures you just added of distribution frames are welcome, but the one marked "Main distribution frame" is not a MDF. The MDF I saw years ago was about 40-60 feet long, about 8 feet wide, and horizontal. All of the cables coming into the exchange building terminated on one side of this MDF where they were connected with jumper wires across the 8 foot space to the other side of the MDF, where all of the cables from the switch terminated. I hope you can find a picture of an MDF. Greensburger 20:26, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Greensburger, thank you for letting me know. Obviously I completely misunderstood what an MDF is. A picture of such a rare beast would be of great value! Adamantios 22:11, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Skopelos Reptiles[edit]

Adamantios - Some of the wiki links you added to the reptiles section in the Skopelos articles don't go anywhere. Can you take a look ?Skopelos-Slim 07:21, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi! No relevant articles exist, but it's generally a good practice to have links for species. That way the experts can see what's missing and fill in the blanks. Regards, Adamantios 08:31, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip - we shall wait for the experts! Skopelos-Slim 06:17, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Loupes spam[edit]

Is it, in fact, inappropriate to include links to websites offering goods or services related to teh topic of the article? DRosenbach (Talk | Contribs) 14:00, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi DRosenbach, I'm glad you cared to ask. I believe it is, please see WP:SPAM and WP:LINKS. Ofcourse you might as well WP:IAR and see if anyone else complains! Adamantios 15:59, 8 November 2007 (UTC)


Elysium "Triva" section[edit]

Yes, that's very nice that you deleted a WHOLE section of the page i was trying to get the page off the grounds of start (I'm being sarcastic about you deleting it of course.) Anyways, i put it back because in a way, its STILL useful information, well thats it.Ihsbislns 14:24, 3 December 2007 (UTC)Ihsbislns


Be civil, sign your posts and comment on content, not on the contributor. We are both trying to improve the article, remember? Adamantios (talk) 10:01, 30 November 2007 (UTC)


Indeed, but next time, notifiy someone before you do a extreme edit such as that. Ihsbislns 14:25, 3 December 2007 (UTC)Ihsbislns

Fair use rationale for Image:Duth-main-logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Duth-main-logo.png. I notice the image 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. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 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. MECUtalk 14:16, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Economist-Aug-Sep-2005-small.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Economist-Aug-Sep-2005-small.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) 12:09, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Adamantios in es:wiki[edit]

Hi! I think the proces was ok. I moved the old user Adamantios to Adamantios2, I hope you have now your nick Adamantios in es:wiki, please, answer me because I want to know if I did that right, It was my first rename. Thanks. See you. --Millars (talk) 22:07, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Venlafaxine[edit]

Hi there, I removed a personal attack on a respected editor, User:Beetstra, on the venlafaxine talk page which you then reinstated citing WP:TPG, I am unsure why this happened or what you wanted to achieve but WP:TPG states: Article talk pages should not be used by editors as platforms for their personal views, which I think this anon editor was specifically doing, perhaps you could reconsider your edit. Cheers, Mr Bungle | talk 10:12, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello Mr Bungle. I obviously understand the statement you quote differently. One could remove a lot more content, if it was interpreted as you suggest. WP:TPG also states that removing personal attacks is controversial and then points to a couple more articles. I myself do not understand why you removed a comment that was not even directed at you. You might as well delete it again, if you have to. I've made my point. Regards, Adamantios (talk) 14:30, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Spectrum analyzer[edit]

Hi, thanks for your support with Spectrum analyzer. I am having the same trouble with Electromagnetic compatibility. Is it possible to block an IP vandal when their IP address is dynamic? -- Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 08:00, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello Steelpillow, you are welcome! I added Electromagnetic compatibility to my watchlist when I saw it in the "user contributions" of that troll. According to WP:VANDAL, if it continues doing disruptive edits, we can ask for semi-protection (WP:ROUGH). Maybe it's still a bit early, lets just keep an eye on it for the moment. Regards, Adamantios (talk) 13:44, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Looks like we've had our answer. Are you an admin, or should it be reported? -- Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 20:45, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm not an admin, pardon me if I somehow gave that impression. I requested semi-protection over here WP:RFP. Cheers, Adamantios (talk) 08:47, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Medical cannabis[edit]

Hello. Can you explain to me what this has to do with the topic of medical cannabis and why it was added to this article instead of Legal and medical status of cannabis where it belongs? Surely, you know about WP:RECENTISM? Viriditas (talk) 12:20, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Viriditas, no need to be hostile or aggressive. The reason stated for the removal was that it was poorly cited, not out of context, thus my edit. Your explanation makes sense and I do not object it. Adamantios (talk) 12:34, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I apologize. I think I'll step away from this for a bit. Please notice, I have not removed the content. Viriditas (talk) 12:38, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
It's alright, no big deal. I know very well how nerve-racking, being part of this community, can be. Regards, Adamantios (talk) 13:00, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I wanted to tell you that I liked what you wrote and I especially liked the primary source you used. I'm just not sure how it fits into the topic. Viriditas (talk) 13:23, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

AfD of Comparison of network monitoring systems[edit]

Hello, I'm curious as to why you have marked for deletion the article Comparison of network monitoring systems. Thanks, Dan. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dandv (talkcontribs) 07:50, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Dan. I believe it fails WP:OR and WP:SYN and, in short, I don't find it encyclopedic. If the community wants to keep it, though, I will oblige :) Adamantios (talk) 20:56, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of High-end audio cables[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is High-end audio cables. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/High-end audio cables. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:06, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
