June 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Mathonius. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Age of Discovery, because it seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you. Mathonius (talk) 17:29, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Anniepresto, I just wanted to come in and add a little explanation for why Mathonius might be deleting these links. When I saw that they had reversed your contribution at AACRM I thought, 'hey, what's up with that?' But then I saw that you were adding zinnedproject.org lesson plans to a bunch of different articles—a practice which is generally considered not that cool because it looks like a spam attack (intended more to promote an outside website than to improve the Encyclopedia). It seems like you might be connected to Teaching for Change, and that's totally fine, but I think you may find folks here to be more welcoming if you focus on substantial edits more than external links. Please ask questions (here or at my talk page) if you have them, and I hope you stick around. Welcome & Peace, groupuscule (talk) 23:20, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification, and I will put some time into more in-depth edits, completing citations, etc. Do you have any suggestions of pages that need additions/changes? (Anniepresto (talk) 14:02, 25 June 2013 (UTC))
Oh my gosh Anniepresto, do we ever. The article on "Racial inequality in the United States", for example, is crying out for more hard facts and statistics. Based on your interests, you might appreciate the "Open Tasks List" at Wikipedia:WikiProject countering systemic bias. Or if there's a particular topic that you know a lot about, we might be able to find relevant articles and help you to get started with working on them. Thank you for exploring Wikipedia! groupuscule (talk) 19:56, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Simeon Booker portrait.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Simeon Booker portrait.jpg. 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:16, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
