Replaceable fair use File:OnLive.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:OnLive.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Seraphimblade Talk to me 00:37, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin‎[edit]

Thanks for the infobox on Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin‎. I note you say that the cover is the 2012 edition; this puzzles me, because I uploaded that image in 2004. Is it unchanged in the current edition? Marnanel (talk) 00:00, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Globalize tag for the Great Depression section of the Lesbian article[edit]

Hello, Ajfweb. Since you originally placed the globalize tag in the Great Depression section, but then moved it just a little above that, I take it that the tag still concerned that section. I reverted the addition of the tag because, as stated in my edit summary, it is "[n]ot clear that the Great Depression section primarily deals with the United States. It's a small section, only one line mentions the U.S., and the rest could be speaking of society in general; it even mentions Germany."

On a side note, you can specifically make it so that a globalize tag refers to the section you put it in. This is done by adding a section-field to the globalize template. Instead of the template referring to the whole article, as your tag did, by looking like {{Globalize/US|date=October 2012}}, it can refer to that specific section by being altered to {{Globalize/US|section|date=October 2012}}, which will read like this:

And you have to make sure that it's in the section, not above it. Flyer22 (talk) 15:32, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Ah, I see. Thanks for taking the time to educate me! AJF (talk) 15:45, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

AMS is MMP[edit]

Hi,

As the head of the article on Mixed-member proportional representation states, AMS is a form of MMP. Actually the two articles should be merged because both are going to talk about the Italian case, which has its own name (Legge Mattarella).

This is why I dared to revert your edits from the 14th of May.

Kahlores (talk) 21:58, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi Kahlores, your changes seem ill-advised. Until/unless the articles are merged, please don't cause such needless duplication between the articles and keep MMP in MMP and AMS in AMS. I have reverted them. - AJF (talk) 22:04, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
    • And if you were asked, would you raise any problem not to merge both? The political scientist who combs the various electoral methods will be looking for examples. It is important to satisfy him with the immediate list of assemblies elected through the algorithm, notwithstanding the various names by which it is known. To take a different example, Australia uses Alternative vote to elect all of its Lower House and Ireland elects their President by what they awkwardly name Single Transferable Vote, but both methods are known globally as instant-runoff voting (IRV) and see how useful it is when Wikipedia leaves out the branding. Kahlores (talk) 22:19, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
      • AMS and MMP aren't exactly the same, however. MMP is fully proportional, AMS isn't. Even so, I'm not arguing that they aren't similar (they are). Thing is, the two articles aren't merged just now, and so it would be inappropriate to make both deviate from their own subject matter, especially selectively where MMP features AMS but not the reverse. Request them to be merged, but don't try to force a merger. - AJF (talk) 23:05, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Chelsea Manning[edit]

Nope. Might as well refer to him as Breanna then (his first female identity.) His desire to be called Chelsea is not a decision made of sound mind and has no merit until it is accompanied by tangible action. Therefore Wiki standards on gender identity do not apply. If he wanted to be called Santa Clause, Wikipedia would not change his page title to Santa Clause. Wanting to be called Chelsea is about as serious of a statement as requesting to be called Saint Nick. -iFreedom1212 — Preceding unsigned comment added by IFreedom1212 (talkcontribs) 17:54, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

" His desire to be called Chelsea is not a decision made of sound mind and has no merit until it is accompanied by tangible action.

See also links[edit]

Hello there! Regarding your recent edit on the USB 3.0 article, here's a quote from WP:ALSO, just for reference:

As a general rule, the 'See also' section should not repeat links that appear in the article's body or its navigation boxes.

Having that part of the Manual of Style in mind, repeating already linked articles is to be avoided in "See also" sections. Thank you. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 23:57, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Reddit posts as source[edit]

While news source are of course preferred, using Reddit posts is actually not that bad IMO. As long as it can be made probably that it is actually the developer talking (which there is no reason to doubt in this case). In most cases, I would argue that a direct comment from a PHP developer is preferable to a news article, since journalists often have no idea what they are talking about when they are trying to make what the developers say understandable for laypeople. There is the point about reddit comments being editable, but since we are not talking about controversial cloak-and-dagger stuff here, that doesn't seem like a huge problem in this specific case. It is certainly much better than adding an unsourced statement, such as what you reverted my edit to. Thue (talk) 18:29, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

There's a specific email on the mailing list I think would be a better reference, I'll find it in a moment. AJF (talk) 18:30, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Reverting for no reason[edit]

Reverting without bothering to leave a reason is highly disruptive. Perhaps you can give the reason now for this. 200.104.240.11 (talk) 11:17, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

I felt you removed too much info, so I reverted it and slimmed it down myself. - AJF (talk) 11:22, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
So why didn't you explain what you were doing? And why not simply edit the article to make the changes you wanted to make? A reversion is a complete rejection of the work of another editor and if the reversion is not adequately supported then the reverted editor may find it difficult to assume good faith. 200.104.240.11 (talk) 13:46, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Because the edit would then be a stealth revert. Sorry, I screwed up this time, I usually have a long explanation for why I reverted something. - AJF (talk) 14:02, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your apology and for taking the time to respond. You are probably aware that most people don't consider anonymous editors worth engaging with so I appreciate it. Your edit restored a couple of things which I regard as problematic to the article and I'd invite you to have another look.
  • the Zend Engine is freely available under the Zend Engine License (some parts under the PHP License) since 2001 - there's little practical difference between "freely available" and "available" here, unless you were going to link "free" to free software. In addition, it's not correct to say "under the Zend Engine License" if some parts are not available under that license. Ideally it should be explained which parts are under which license, but merely mentioning the other license as an aside can't be right. In addition, the tense is not correct and the sentence should say "has been... since 2001" if the year of its release is important enough to mention.
  • The link to php.net is not appropriate because a) it's not a citation, and b) if it was it should be formatted as a reference and not as an inline link, see Wikipedia:Citing_sources#Avoid_embedded_links.
Thanks again. 200.104.240.11 (talk) 20:42, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't consider "freely available" a problem. I slightly reworded the "some parts". I changed it to use "has been", and removed the link. - AJF (talk) 02:16, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

on PHP License[edit]

Thanks for your explanations about the PHP License model, I think that you are right when you said that it's 'Free Software' license, by the fact that it's part of the GPL-incompatible free software licenses as published by the FSF, there https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLIncompatibleLicenses,

the thing which makes me prefering to consider it as Open Source license instead is the fact that it was permissive and non-copyleft and its incompatibility with the GNU GPL, but now it's ok for saying that it's a free software license.

but bear in mind that this license is not recommended for people who are interrested by the software freedom, and GNU GPL is the best to use in your software that should be Free as in Freedom, see https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/pragmatic.html and https://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html.
