How do I merge the two IP addresses I have used under my new username, Altonbr?

My past IP's were: 24.235.136.112, 24.235.137.120, 24.235.140.184, 24.235.136.143 & 72.38.56.31

Hi. Unfortunately you cannot. You can only link them from your userpage. -- zzuuzz(talk) 23:03, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:Typical_ear_candling_contents.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:Typical_ear_candling_contents.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Important employees of google[edit]

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia by creating the page Important employees of google. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. See WP:NPOV. NawlinWiki 18:52, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

The problem with an article like this is, essentially, who decides who is "important"? That requires considering the author's personal point of view, in violation of WP:NPOV and WP:NOR. Thanks, NawlinWiki 19:04, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Scribes-replace.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Scribes-replace.png. 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. 19:08, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

NISPOM advertisement[edit]

Hi there! I noticed that you added the {{advertisement}} tag to the NISPOM section of the NISP article (diff). Can I ask you to please comment at the talk page for the article as to why you added that tag? I'm unclear as to what makes it like an advertisement, and someone else has raised the same concern. Thanks! —DragonHawk (talk|hist) 02:12, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Ubuntu-5.04-login-20071001.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Ubuntu-5.04-login-20071001.png. 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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Image copyright problem with Image:Ubuntu-5.04-desktop-20071001.png[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Ubuntu-5.04-desktop-20071001.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 23:20, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

Please remember to mark your edits as minor when (and only when) they genuinely are minor edits (see Wikipedia:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one (and vice versa) is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting and minor rearranging of text should be flagged as a 'minor edit'. Thanks! —DragonHawk (talk|hist) 06:24, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

expert template[edit]

Nice template for GIMP -- I had a difficult time (as you can see I failed) getting that whore Photoshop off from that article. I am in the middle of an article about how a consensus of bacteriologists failed in the 1800s and cannot help but think of what an abused word this one particular word is in some places. If 50 or 500 or 5000 people say that the earth is not round, does it make it not round? -- carol (talk) 12:02, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Westinghouse Time Capsules[edit]

On February 20 you put a "rewrite" tag in the section 1939 Time Capsule I. The article was featured as a Did You Know article on 8 January 2008. Looking at the section and the article I don't see what parts need to be rewritten (of course I am biased). There has not been any other editors that have made any edits since the DYK except for minor edits. I did make the one image smaller and moved to the right. Perhaps you can make the edits you feel are necessary and remove the tag. Could you be specific, make the appropriate changes, or remove the tag if otherwise you think it is alright? Thanks.--Doug talk 23:52, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Kohanaphp-homepage-20071117-01-cropped.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Kohanaphp-homepage-20071117-01-cropped.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. Project FMF (talk) 13:14, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Rafal Rzeczkowski[edit]

I have nominated Rafal Rzeczkowski, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rafal Rzeczkowski. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Tan | 39 05:55, 23 April 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:KubuntuLogo.svg}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:KubuntuLogo.svg. 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.

Ubuntu Links[edit]

Hey, I removed the links in the Ubuntu article again. The GA reviewer has requested it. However, you should feel free to add them back in as citations with Template:Cite Web. --Falcorian (talk) 22:56, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Technical template on Swiftfox page[edit]

Since you added the {{technical}} template on the Swiftfox page, I've worked to fix the problem and remove it, see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Swiftfox&diff=220170546&oldid=218810141

I think the article is simply too specific to be simplified more, so I limited my effort to the introduction. Please express your opinions/suggestions if you disagree. Thanks --Blaisorblade (talk) 16:39, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:KohanaPHP logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:KohanaPHP logo.png. 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) 05:16, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Launchpad.net-www-20081102-version_2.1.10.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Launchpad.net-www-20081102-version_2.1.10.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 02:11, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:GEdit-2.24-oblivion theme.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:GEdit-2.24-oblivion theme.png. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 23:08, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Changing Jaunty, Karmic, etc redirects[edit]

Hey, I think those links should remain like they are, pointing to the specific edition and not the main article. As you can see in this quote from the main article, your current method wold create a self-redirect:

The current version of Ubuntu, 9.04, was released on April 23, 2009, and the upcoming version, Karmic Koala, is planned to be released on October 29, 2009.

This could easily be fixed, but when I'm searching for new information on Karmic Koala, I'm not looking for generic information on Ubuntu. [mad pierrot][t c] 23:18, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:29, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
