Be careful with the article about Barbara Stadtlander. Most of it appears to be copied directly from http://www.barbarastadtlander.com/biograph.htm, which makes the Wikipedia article a copyright violation. Copyright violations can be word-for-word or similar wordings (not necessarily verbatim). Articles can definitely cite information from various websites, but should be in the words of the author(s). I will do what I can to help avoid the copyright problems. --JonRidinger (talk) 20:08, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Feat choi sung bong.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Feat choi sung bong.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 21:05, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Press Photo - Author Jason P. Stadtlander.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Press Photo - Author Jason P. Stadtlander.jpg. 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) 16:05, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

File:Lovers of Valdaro.jpg[edit]

The image has been deleted as Wikipedia can't use images that are from photo libraries like AP (or Getty) as the company do not licence them under terms that are compatible with Wikipedia licencing conditions. Widely available on the internet is not the same as being in the public domain and the onus is on you as the uploader do show that the image is either in the public domain or released under a free licence. As a rule of thumb unless an image on the internet expressly says it is in the public domain or has a free licence, for example a creative commons licence, attached to it assume it is not in the public domain and is subject to copyright. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about images you might want to upload and want help with the licence. There is no aversion to images being uploaded but the rules about copyright are quite labyrinthine and do take some understanding. NtheP (talk) 21:36, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Press Photo - Author Jason P. Stadtlander.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Press Photo - Author Jason P. Stadtlander.jpg. 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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:19, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

File inaccuracy (File:File:Authors Jason P. Stadtlander & T.Michelle Nelson.jpg)[edit]

You had uploaded the file referenced above and it actually did not have T. Michelle Nelson. I obtained another photo that I had taken at the same book signing. Please have the other one corrected or deleted.

Thank you HighMerrits (talk) 17:05, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Reliable sourcing[edit]

I noticed that you're new here and that you've been adding articles for some relatively indie authors. I wanted to drop a note here and explain why some of your pages have been nominated for deletion. First off, I just have to ask... are you in any way affiliated with any of the authors you're creating pages for? If you are a friend, family member, associate, or someone that they have asked to create a page for them in any way (whether they pay you for it or not), then you really need to exercise a lot of caution in creating pages with what Wikipedia considers to be a conflict of interest. (WP:COI) While there's nothing in the rules that state that you can't create a page with a COI, it's heavily discouraged.

Secondly, I need to warn you about the sources you're using. Sites like Goodreads and Amazon are never usable as a source in any way, shape, or form. Goodreads can be edited by almost anyone with a computer and even then, the site just confirms a book's existence. As far as reviews go, those don't count towards notability here on Wikipedia. Anyone can have an account on either of those two sites, so it's easy to say "oh, well, people love this book- look at all of the good reviews" and have the reviews be partially faked. Now before you get upset and say that the authors you're posting about don't do that sort of thing, know that some authors do. Robert Stanek is infamous for posting hundreds of reviews about himself on various sites. In any case, that's part of the reason (but not the only reason) that the only reviews we accept as reliable sourcing are the types that come from the bigger papers and more well-known, verifiable critics. Amazon and Goodreads are so easily edited by the author or by others, not to mention that Amazon is a merchant source, so neither of them are usable as far as giving notability goes. Primary sources such as the author's website do not give notability either. They can back up that the author has published or done something, but just doing something doesn't give notability in and of itself. It has to be reported on in multiple independent and reliable sources. This brings me to the local paper coverage. Local coverage isn't really considered to be enough when it comes to showing notability, partially because when you get down to it sometimes it's not that hard for authors to get it if they have a good publicist or can send out a good query letter themselves. It's not always easy, but then it's not entirely difficult either.

I know that it's probably frustrating considering that you did go through AfC and someone approved this, but in this instance they were wrong when it came to the Stadtlander ‎article. Mistakes do happen and sometimes even the more seasoned editors will let something through AfC that they shouldn't. I hope that this doesn't discourage you too much, but you really need to know some of these basics when it comes to Wikipedia. I've got a bit of a page I'm working on as far as notability and arguments go and you can see this here, if you're interested in reading this in more detail. (And yes, despite my three paragraphs, there is more to all of this. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 03:46, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Also, the good rule of thumb is that if someone can only be sourced by a primary source, odds are that whatever it is isn't notable per Wikipedia. If someone won an award but there's no mention of the award anywhere, then odds are that the award isn't really notable per Wikipedia's guidelines. You should also be careful about overreliance on primary sources. It's fine to pull some information, basic information, from a primary source, but you shouldn't write an entire article based on a primary source. Why? Because primary sources are almost always written to show the subject in the best light possible. So awards or accomplishments that might be not all that big of an accomplishment will be promoted to be amazingly huge, bigger than what they are. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 03:57, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
