File permission problem with File:ICVC logo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:ICVC logo.png, which you've attributed to http://www.eng.advayta.org/cat/?id=1585. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for 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}} 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. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:13, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:ICVC logo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:ICVC logo.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 19:05, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Hello Aethelwolf Emsworth, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Shezhuang Temple has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. http://lostinshanghai.com/2012/10/15/temple-in-the-ruins-2/ GabrielF (talk) 07:52, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Weixinism[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Weixinism has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I find no significant independent coverage of this topic. 61 Google hits in English, 91 in Chinese, generally blogs and Facebook and primary sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —Largo Plazo (talk) 03:04, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Weixinism[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Weixinism, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

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, you can place a request here. —Largo Plazo (talk) 03:05, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Faism priestly roles[edit]

Hi Aethelwolf! I appreciate your contributions relating to the traditional religions of China. I wanted to ask you to clarify, however, what a statement in the Faism article meant: it says that Faist priests' roles in Chinese society included being married. This sounded odd, and at first I assumed that it meant marrying other couples, but I thought I should check to be sure. All the best, Q·L·1968 15:33, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you for the appreciation! Regarding married priests... yes, in some religions (actually many, or maybe most religions) priests can wed and also have another occupation. Only Catholic priests, and generally the monks (of any religion) must live a celibate and ascetic life. In Chinese religions this is the case of the Quanzhen monks, while ritual masters and shamans of the various local cults can marry.--Aethelwolf Emsworth (talk) 15:47, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
What I meant with that phrase is that the role of this type of priests in society is that of a part-time religious minister, not consecrating their life to asceticism, that in turn is the role of monks.--Aethelwolf Emsworth (talk) 15:51, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
My religious framework is so different from Catholicism that I completely misunderstood the point of comparison there at first! Thanks for clarifying. I wonder if that would be worth rephrasing in the article itself. Q·L·1968 03:00, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

maybe you can help out[edit]

Hi. I see you are the one who have recently contributed to Mo (religion) article, a Zhuang's religion. But Moism is not only practiced by the Zhuang but all Tai peoples who are not influenced by Buddhism and Hinduism. I've just made some edits on the Nùng people article. They are one of Tai ethnics who practice Moism and Animism. But I find the article has no section for religion and I myself have not much knowledge about this aspect, therefore I think you could help out with it (if you know any). Regards. Psychoneuroimmunology (talk) 15:18, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello! I have found just one academic publication specifically about Nung folk religion (Nguyễn Thị Yên. Tày-Nùng Folk Beliefs. H.: Social Sciences Publishing House, 2009, 719 pages, Vb 47561), but unfortunately it can't be found online. I have also found a publication that exhaustively describes the Then religion of the Tay. The aithor is the same Nguyễn Thị Yên who has studied the Nung religion. I don't know if the Nung practice the same religion, but they are mentioned in the introduction of the paper. --Aethelwolf Emsworth (talk) 16:15, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Shi Yong[edit]

Hi, I think you made a mistake in associating Shi Yong with the Stone Generals in the Kantai Tianhou Temple in Taiwan. The two Stone Generals are folk deities worshipped by the locals and have nothing to do with Shi Yong. Shi Yong does not really play an important role in the novel Water Margin even though he is one of the 108 Stars of Destiny. "Stone General" is simply his nickname in the ranking of the 108 Stars. LDS contact me 14:44, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
