Agnes Newton Keith[edit]

Hi Jesse/OlYeller, and thanks for your note. Stop apologising - anyone would think you're British! Your edit to ANK was very timely as it started me thinking, and I realised that according to the MOS I should have written in American English - so thanks for alerting me. It felt very odd writing '-ized' rather than '-ised', and 'adviser' rather than 'advisor', amongst others: try writing in British English and you'll see what I mean. I kept expecting the teacher's ruler to thwack down on my fingers. Later last evening I was really taken to task for my non-American punctuation, so it's been a steep learning curve! And thank-you for your kind words about my efforts - it's always nice to be appreciated, isn't it? Cheers Jasper33 23:25, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Old Yeller[edit]

Thanks for your complements as to my Old Yeller plot summary. I read the book two years ago, and it's still one of my favorites! Geohevy 21:15, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:KABF883logo.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:KABF883logo.gif. 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, then 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, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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. 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 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 17:12, 10 August 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. OsamaK 17:12, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:KABF883logo.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:KABF883logo.gif. 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. BetacommandBot 14:37, 24 September 2007 (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'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. 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) 19:18, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

2012 Benghazi attack[edit]

I have done my best to address your concerns there, however in light of the recent U.S. State Department report, some sources need to be produced in order to balance the view that this was an 'attack by terrorists'. I did remove a bunch of superfluous media hype about investigations to concentrate on the actual findings. Please drop by and let us know if you think we're headed in the right direction.

Will do, thank you very much. Analogdrift (talk) 14:30, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Woman III, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tahmasb (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.
