Speedy deletion nomination of Category:People of Alsatian-Jewish descent[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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Category:People of Alsatian-Jewish descent requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Image tagging for File:William Colby.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:William Colby.jpg. 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) 18:05, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Improper moves[edit]

Do not move pages and then make requests for the redirects to be moved (like you did with Tom Mooney). That just makes you look like an ass and will hurt your cause. You also did not follow the steps at WP:RM (see the part about setting up a discussion area). TJ Spyke 21:25, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Stop with the images[edit]

Hey, all those images you just uploaded for PA state reps and senators? ALL copyright violations. Every single one. Not one is OK to use. You need to read this: Wikipedia:Copyrights immediately. Consider this your last and final warning. --A. Gorilla (talk) 21:50, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, all that work you up in to uploading those images: for nothing. I just nominated them for deletion, because they are copyright violations and cannot ever be on wikipedia. Basically, these are copyrighted by the Pennsylvania government, which means the government owns them. You can't use this tag on these images:{{PD-USGov}}, because the US government is not the same as the Pennsylvania government.
If you want to make a good faith effort to contribute to Wikipedia, I can help you. But, first, you must stop uploading any images. If you do that, I can show you how to upload images that won't run afoul of copyright law. --A. Gorilla (talk) 22:02, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:Andy Dinniman.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Andy Dinniman.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. --J Milburn (talk) 21:51, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (File:Don Siegelman.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Don Siegelman.jpg. 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. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 '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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --auburnpilot talk 02:41, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:H. Guy Hunt.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:H. Guy Hunt.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. --auburnpilot talk 02:43, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Leon Panetta headshot.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Leon Panetta headshot.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:40, 16 June 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 21:40, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Leon Panetta headshot.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Leon Panetta headshot.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 GFDL 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 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image 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 uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

File:Phil Bryant.jpg again[edit]

It's obvious from all of the traffic above, that you don't grasp the copyright policy of Wikipedia. Since you can't, I'd suggest you just stop uploading any files to Wikipedia. File:Phil Bryant.jpg is from a State of Mississippi web site, which is copyrighted and owned by the state of Mississippi. You can't just take copyrighted content from other web sites and upload them here. As far as government sites go, only content found at federal government web sites is generally copyright-free and may be uploaded here. As this is like your umpteenth time being told about this, if you upload another copyrighted image to Wikipedia again, I'm almost sure your editing privileges will be revoked via a block or ban. -    allstarecho     05:31, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Patrick Tracy Burris mug shot.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Patrick Tracy Burris mug shot.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 '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.

March 2010[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding unreferenced controversial biographical content to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Winona Ryder. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Jayjg (talk) 03:10, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

What would that "defamatory" content be? The article says she was "convicted of grand theft and vandalism." Do those categories not fit? Don't threaten me with blockage when I haven't done anything wrong. Americus55 (talk) 03:13, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
To begin with, you added the unsourced and potentially defamatory category "Groupies" to the article: [1]. Also, the "Vandals" category is a bizarre one, that appears to be mostly used for people infamous for vandalism; the Ryder article doesn't make it clear what "vandalism" she might have done, even if she was convicted of it. Court rulings can be confusing, and BLP means we don't make judgments about them unless a preponderance of reliable sources do. Convicted of theft? Yes. Vandal? No. Jayjg (talk) 03:23, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Just in case you aren't aware, Wikipedia has a policy against personal attacks. Calling other people lousy editors isn't going to help resolve the issue you're having. Please remember to keep civil even when disagreeing. Shell babelfish 20:20, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Carl C. Perkins[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

I have removed material from Carl C. Perkins that does not comply with our policy on the biographies of living persons. Biographical material must always be referenced from reliable sources, especially negative material. Negative material that does not comply with that must be immediately removed. Note that the removal does not imply that the information is either true or false.

Please do not reinsert this material unless you can provide reliable citations, and can ensure it is written in a neutral tone. Please review the relevant policies before editing in this regard. Editors should note that failure to follow this policy may result in the removal of editing privileges.--Scott Mac (Doc) 18:33, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Babette Josephs[edit]

Your addition to the Babette Josephs page disturbs me. Without it the page is clearly a stub, with minimal information. Thus the page seems to fall within the category Wikipedia:NPF "Wikipedia contains biographical material on people who, while notable enough for an entry, are not generally well known." That is, if she were better known, surely there would be more information about her.

We are thus instructed "In such cases, exercise restraint and include only material relevant to their notability, focusing on high quality secondary sources." She has been a politician for 25 years; there is 25 years of information that is more notable than what you have posted. That the article instead reflects only what is too easily described as an attack, argues strongly that your post is not appropriate under Wikipedia:NPF. Please remove your edits.

I am a bot notifying you on behalf of the the unreferenced biographies team that 1 of the articles that you created is currently tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,016 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

April 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Please be aware of Wikipedia's policy that biographical information about living persons must not include unsupported or inaccurate statements. Whenever you add possibly controversial statements about a living person to an article or any other Wikipedia page, as you did to Norman Sisisky, you must include proper sources. If you don't know how to cite a source, you may want to read Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners for guidelines. Thank you. GcSwRhIc (talk) 20:23, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to John Miller (Washington politician). Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. GcSwRhIc (talk) 20:28, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits.

Speedy deletion nomination of Durkee–Mower[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Durkee–Mower, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Glenn Miller in List of aerial disappearances[edit]

Thanks for creating an entry for Glenn Miller in this list. I had decided to leave it to someone else to do so, as his inclusion may be open to challenge on the basis that he was formally posted as "Missing in action" (so, including him might raise the issue of whether all other notable MIA aviators shouldn't be included in the list as well, which would make it excessively long - I think.) Personally, I am quite happy to accept your judgement that Miller should be included, since he was only a "combattant" in the technical sense and there is no evidence that his death resulted from enemy action (although a type of "friendly fire" incident is a possibility.) I thought I should note here that someone else might challenge his inclusion on the basis of the policy that is stated in the introduction to the list (or look for a change or qualification to that policy.) Thanks again, though, for taking the effort to complete an entry in the list for him. Todowd (talk) 17:04, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of David Freed[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 David Freed requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Newmanoconnor (talk) 20:25, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ron Barber, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hey Americus55

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Providing edit summaries[edit]

I have noticed that you often edit without an edit summary. Please do your best to always fill in the summary field. This is considered an important guideline in Wikipedia. Even a short summary is better than no summary. An edit summary is even more important if you delete any text; otherwise, people may think you're being sneaky. Also, mentioning one change but not another one can be misleading to someone who finds the other one more important; add "and misc." to cover the other change(s). Thanks!
