Absence of Blacks Map[edit]

Please review or remove the graphic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Absenceblacks.png . The county of Laramie County, Wyoming seems to have many more that 25 black people living in it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laramie_County,_Wyoming) more than 2% of a population of >80,000. Astauthamer (talk) 22:14, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Reply requested[edit]

Hi. I'd appreciate a more insightful reply, to this archived thread. You can reply here, or at my talkpage. I've put a lot of time into writing to you, and defending you, and would appreciate a reciprocal effort.

If you refuse to admit any fault, then I'm going to have to give up defending you, based purely on lack of potential-for-communication, which I do not want to do. Yes, other editors are being imperfect, and I'm trying to point that out to them also, but you're not helping things with hyperbole and reactionary habits. I need to know whether you understand/recognize that, and that you will make an effort to change certain habits. -- Quiddity (talk) 09:38, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi again. Please, take a moment to read my comments, and the ongoing thread at ANI noticeboard. We need some kind of feedback. We explain (each in our own way - some more politely or relevantly than others) what kind of feedback we're hoping for. Some of us desperately hoping for.
I'd recommend/request/beg that you reply to just one or two of the comments in that thread (ideally mine) in order to avoid the situation descending into semantic arguments, and to give me/us a few rounds of dialogue, so that we can try one last time to resolve the personality clashes. I do think it is possible, but only if we can get fresh input from you, about ways you are willing to adapt or change certain habits (as explained there).
Sincerely, and exhaustedly, -- Quiddity (talk) 08:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Wanting to upload a large number of photos of Vietnam[edit]

YellowMonkey had mentioned you add a lot of "photo required" tags and thought you might be interested. Basically I have a large number of photos I took while I was in Vietnam, and I'm looking for someone to sort/edit/upload these for me. The main reason for this is because the trip is actually something I don't want to really think of, for too long, and the photos can somewhat serve as a reminder. I've also posted on WT:VIET. Even if it's just advice on something, I would appreciate it. - Zero1328 Talk? 06:04, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Riley Baugus[edit]

Great job on the article. I had it on my to-do list, glad you beat me to it. --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 02:38, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes, nice work. I just added a tag and assessed it as a stub since there is only one section and the rest are appendixes. Viriditas (talk) 09:56, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 month in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for chronic communication issues - see relevant ANI thread. Please stop. You are welcome to make useful contributions after the block expires. If you believe this block is unjustified you may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below. Tan | 39 16:06, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
  • I suppose I should have posted here sooner to offer some support. Of course I'm outraged by this absurd block on you, but hopefully you can work it all out and be back soon. I didn't have anything to say to you on it because I didn't know how to be of any help in resolving the situations and I don't think I'm in any position to do anything about the current block. I'm just hoping that you can sort it out. Oh well. Take care. ChildofMidnight (talk) 05:03, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Cello rock[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Cello rock. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cello rock (2nd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:29, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Chinese languages/Dialects[edit]

Ground meat[edit]

It would be nice if you put some information about ground meats (other than beef) on the ground meat page. It's basically a repeat of the ground beef page. Altonbrownisawesome (talk) 23:49, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


Jianpi Wan[edit]

Hi Badagnani, As you are an active Wikipedia contributor, i would appreciate your views on the proposed deletion of Jianpi Wan at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Jianpi_Wan Jianpi Wan is an ancient Chinese herbal formula to strengthen the spleen. It has long existed as an entry under Chinese classic herbal formula. (talk) 00:31, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of University of Évry Val d'Essonne[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on University of Évry Val d'Essonne, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. 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.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. -- PhantomSteve (Contact Me, My Contribs) 11:08, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Despite being 3 years old, this article merely reiterates the article's title, with no further content apart from the co-ords and the official website. To prevent this article being deleted, you would need to add further details (perhaps links to notable alumni who have wikipedia articles?). -- PhantomSteve (Contact Me, My Contribs) 11:08, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

By all means add content and citations to the article. It's a collaborative encyclopedia. Cheers. ChildofMidnight (talk) 17:55, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
It's a new school (1991) in a slum and working-class, heavily-minority suburb of Paris; their graduates face uphill struggles and mostly have not reached the pinnacles of fame yet. Sadly, I can't help much, because I speak no French. Nonetheless: all colleges are inherently notable; and one that offers 160 majors and 3 doctoral programs (according to their website) certainly should not be simply speedied away! --Orange Mike | Talk 20:55, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:Chaatmasala.jpg[edit]

File:Chaatmasala.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:Chaatmasala.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis.

East Asian calligraphy[edit]

Hi, Badagnani, how's your break. Given your great interest in East Asian culture, when you are back from a break, would you care to look into the recent cut-and-paste blanking/merging/splitting done by Asoer (talk · contribs) who has no consensus or discussion for that? I think your knowledge and interests in East Asian culture would be greatly helpful for the issue. Thanks.--Caspian blue 03:15, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Please talk about this in Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_China#What_to_call_East_Asian_calligraphy. Asoer (talk) 07:56, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Turgut Doyurucu[edit]

Getting mass reverting for a disruptive user?[edit]

Greetings, note that User:76.120.151.113 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/76.120.151.113) has been going around adding redundant categories to 100+ string instrument articles. Any way we can get a moderator to revert all his edits automatically? That IP has a long history of disruptive edits. MatthewVanitas (talk) 21:33, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

This is a user talk page, not a page frequented by admins. Please take your request to WP:ANI rather than bothering Badagnani with it. Badagnani, feel free to remove this message. Cheers. lifebaka++ 21:40, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it's just a collegial discussion regarding how best to approach the issue. ChildofMidnight (talk) 23:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I concur that this discussion is important and warranted. All the additions should be reverted (preferably by the editor who added them in the first place), as all those articles, as I can tell, were already in subcategories of "String instruments." Badagnani (talk) 14:59, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Greeting[edit]

Dancers are welcoming you.

Hello, Badagnani. I was a bit worried that you would not come back since you've been very quiet since the occasion. I hope you regain enjoyment in editing Wikipedia. Best regards--Caspian blue 15:30, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Talk pages[edit]

Thank you for your message. The purpose of talk pages is to discuss improvements of the article to which the talk page belong. Talk pages are not the place for asking questions about the language or request translations. Thank you for respecting this and not inserting further comments of that kind. If you want to have Hindi translations, contact one of the many Hindi-speaking users here, ask the question in one of the hundreds of translation forums on the Internet or some other option, but please refrain from posting such requests on the talk page of Hindi. That is not the place for such requests.Jeppiz (talk) 04:26, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

It's a gray area. But I don't think discussing the need for hindi words and their translations on the hindi talk page is particularly out of order. It seems to me to be a good way to go about improving the encyclopedia. If there's a better place to post the requests perhaps you could help move them there and suggest it specifically. ChildofMidnight (talk) 19:10, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
The place to ask for help with translations is Wikipedia:Local Embassy (specifically Wikipedia:Local Embassy#हिन्दी Hindi). Jeppiz is correct that a talkpage should only be used for discussing the article it is attached to. -- Quiddity (talk) 19:38, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Being correct and being helpful are two different things in this case. It would be good to bring them together. Thanks for the pointer Quid. I think Badagnani would appreciate the requests being moved to that venue, that would certainly be preferable to their being deleted. ChildofMidnight (talk) 21:04, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
I've posted a note about it at WP:ANI to get the opinions of others. You are all very welcome to participate in the discussion.Jeppiz (talk) 02:37, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
You actually posted the note at WP:AN, not ANI, although the Village Pump or Wikipedia talk:Talk page guidelines would probably have been a better place, since there doesn't seem to be any issue here requiring administrator attention. Propaniac (talk) 02:45, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

New cat Category:Musical_instrument_museums[edit]

Still mostly just stubs, but there have to be more out there. FWIW, I've been to 2 out of 3, and will have to hit up that Morpeth one someday... MatthewVanitas (talk) 05:33, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

GA reassessment of Ahn Eak-tai[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. I have found some concerns with the article which you can see at Talk:Ahn Eak-tai/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 23:26, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Badagnani, I would highly appreciate you if you proofread the article with your fair writing ability. It is one of a few GA articles in Korean Project, and I would provide Korean sources, but proofreading is not what I can do.--Caspian blue 23:37, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Daikon[edit]

Hello, Badagnani. Since you have been working on plant/crop-related articles and familiar with Asian subjects, I'm writing this to ask for your input. I'm not sure whether you're active or not these days, but if you are around, would you care to look into these[1][2]? And following discussion could be found at Talk:Daikon#Phoenix7777's edit. As far as I've known, terms that become English do not render "its original term in the language other than English" in the intro, but the newbie insists otherwise. So I think WP:3O would be necessary. Thanks.--Caspian blue 01:45, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: derivation/etymology of ภรณ์ (phon)[edit]

It's actually อาภรณ์ (aphon), from Pali and Sanskrit Ābharaṇa.[3] Suntharaphon is formed from sandhi between สุนทร (sundara) and อาภรณ์. --Paul_012 (talk) 08:23, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

The Royal Institute Dictionary[4] provides etymological origins of loanwords in its entries. In this case, the word is derived without changes from the Pali/Sanskrit root. The Thai script can usually be directly converted to the IAST representation or other Indic scripts, including Devanagari. I have no real knowledge of either, but substituting letter by letter, I'd agree with the script you provided. As for identifying the stems of compound terms, I'd say its a matter of experience and familiarity with the language; it's usually part of Thai language lessons taught in local schools. --Paul_012 (talk) 17:39, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
It's available online (in Thai) at http://rirs3.royin.go.th/dictionary.asp. --Paul_012 (talk) 08:17, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Mexican vihuela[edit]

Hello. I want to know your position about merging, since spanish vihuela and mexican vihuela are different instruments. Shape, material, courses (one is double coursed, the other is single coursed), type of music, all is different... The articles begins: "Vihuela is the name of two different guitar-like string instruments: the historical vihuela (proper) of 16th century Spain, usually with 12 paired strings, and the modern Mexican vihuela from 20th century Mexico with five strings and typically played in Mariachi groups."

Why did you propose mergeto|Vihuela? --Opus88888 (talk) 08:21, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of World Doctors Orchestra[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on World Doctors Orchestra 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 band or musician, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Hoponpop69 (talk) 20:45, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Commons:Village_pump#User:Badagnani[edit]

You're being mentioned at the place. Your images obtained from emails could be deleted unless you forward received emails and your sending emails to WP:OTRS (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org). This is a pointer.--Caspian blue 04:44, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Your revert warring[edit]

I know this message will most likely be deleted (as with every one of my posts), but what right do you have to essentially ban me from every China-related article that you have edited? All I'm trying to do is contribute to en.wiki, and you just wash away every edit of mine with some "+" edit summary. That's not okay. I was willing to work with you on some articles, but this alone is already beginning to change my mind. GraYoshi2x►talk 19:25, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Hm..no. GraYoshi2x. According to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject China/Archive/May 2009#Naming convention for Chinese foods and usages of Wikitionary You were the only one against the usage of Wikitionary, so please drop the meaningless edit warring with Badagnani.Caspian blue 19:43, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't talking about the linking. I was talking about Badagnani's reverting behavior in itself. Please don't change the subject. GraYoshi2x►talk 19:46, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Hmm..no, GraYoshi2x, you started the edit warring by removing the wikitionary linking and did not leave any edit summary most of time for the change.--19:48, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
You're not understanding me. It's not a case of who started it first.
Never mind. Just forget it. GraYoshi2x►talk 19:52, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Magibon[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Magibon. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Magibon (4th nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:34, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Universal Record Database Entry[edit]

Hello Badagnani,

I saw that you were interested in creating an entry about the Universal Record Database. Is this still on your radar? I'm writing from URDB and we would be grateful for your neutral writeup. Our About page [6] should provide some history on the website and the founders. Please let me know if there is any more information I could get to you.

Best regards, Sarah Sfalco1 (talk) 17:17, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, where exactly did I express such interest? Badagnani (talk) 09:10, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Your edit-warring with GraYoshi2x[edit]

Summaries[edit]

Hi. The article Pinnacle Point Man popped up in my watchlist. I spent quite a few seconds trying to discern from the diff what changes had been made. I just wanted to remind you to please use edit summaries! Often only a couple of words are needed. (I think in that diff you were just removing blank lines? An edit summary of "rm blanklines" would have been ideal in that case.) Much thanks. -- Quiddity (talk) 18:56, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Courtesy notice - WP:AN3[edit]

Your editing is being discussed at WP:AN3 --Ronz (talk) 00:43, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

I have warned GraYoshi, and that warning applies to you as well. Edit-warring across numerous pages is unacceptable, and your block log is long enough that not many administrators are going to have patience with you. Please do not make large-scale, undiscussed reverts like this again, or you may be blocked. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 04:09, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, why not undo the blanking before making such a warning? The warning seems to have been made just after the other editor undid every single one of my edits, getting nearly 100 articles just the way s/he wanted them. The improvement of our articles is foremost in my mind with each edit I make, and the other editor is a long-term stalker who has devoted often more than 50 percent of his/her edits to undoing my own (on whatever subject) since March 2009. One can't simply police Wikipedia by intimidation, without doing so in an impartial manner, showing that the "enforcers" also have the good of our articles, content, and users foremost in their minds. Badagnani (talk) 04:20, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
"Why not undo the blanking" is just a way of asking me to continue your edit war for you, which is not appropriate.
I have reviewed the discussions linked and it looks like the consensus of the May discussion was more or less in favor of wikt links, but it was not made explicit. Given how much you and GraYoshi have already edit-warred, it would be better for you to start another discussion there asking outside editors to clarify the consensus, and let them determine whether or not to revert the articles. You are in no position to revert any more. (And neither is GraYoshi, whom I have also warned about this, so please do not accuse me of being partial.) rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 04:25, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
No, that is not what I am asking. I am asking that such "enforcement" be made in an impartial manner, one that does not uphold months and months of stalking that are directed only toward undoing my edits, and showing that the "enforcer" really does have our articles, content, and users foremost in his/her mind. The request not to edit these articles any longer on my part was made, as I mentioned, just moments after the other editor had undone my edits in every single article, removing content supported by the community (save the single, habitually stalking/content-removing editor) in every instance. Again, your interest in my editing of our project is greatly appreciated. Badagnani (talk) 04:28, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
The only reason I warned you after GraYoshi's edits is because that's when I noticed the dispute. If I had noticed right after your edits, I would have warned you then. Please don't assume partiality when there's only coincidences. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 04:47, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

You are edit warring about links to Wiktionary[edit]

Hello Badagnani. See WP:AN3#User:GraYoshi2x and User:Badagnani reported by User:Ronz (Result: ). If you join the discussion at the noticeboard and promise to stop the war, you may be able to avoid sanctions. My strong inclination is to block both parties per WP:LAME. I shouldn't have to remind you of how many past blocks are in your log. EdJohnston (talk) 04:07, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Wiktionary links, again[edit]

And it looks like, even after the numerous warnings at your talk page, you have just gone on to other areas and continued adding wiktionary links: [8][9][10][11] . As far as I can tell, you have made no attempt to start a discussion before doing this. If I had seen you while you were doing it (instead of 2 days later), I would have blocked you. Do not do make these kinds of controversial edits again without starting a discussion somewhere. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 18:15, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your continued interest in my editing. The practice of adding Wiktionary links in a selective manner, providing etymological information when dealing with Chinese or Chinese-derived script, enhances our articles and has been discussed at length (including here), with no problem found except by the constant-stalking editor. No action has been taken, ever, by any admin, against this stalking, showing a clear lack of impartiality on your part. If you can be impartial, your comments here will be more highly valued. Thank you again for your interest in my editing--I have done so for many years and added many hundreds of new articles to our project (for which I have received no thanks from you--why is that?). Badagnani (talk) 03:12, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
Again, no one is being partial here. The reason I warned you and not him is that he has not edited since his last warning and you have. Your insistence on calling foul every time someone warns you is disruptive and annoying. I see you have been blocked in the past for "communication problems", and you are continuing to refuse to communicate properly. Needlessly criticizing the person who warns you, rather than addressing the actual issues, does nothing to improve the discussion. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 16:15, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Music of Australia[edit]

Hi, have you read our external links guidelines? These links do not add anything encyclopedic to the article in a way that can not be written into the article itself. Most of them aren't even about the general topic of music in Australia but rather specific subtopics, which are not appropriate to be linked to from articles on general topics. Also, organization homepages are inappropriate unless linked to from the article about that organization. Are there any specific links which you wish to contest? If not, please consider reremoving the links, as per WP:ELNO points 1, 11, and 13. ThemFromSpace 06:47, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I just saw you remove the EL warning that someone else gave you. Please reread WP:EL because it seems that you don't see the use in EL cleanup, or article cleanup in general, both at Music of Australia and Oud. Removing indiscriminate collections of information, especially examplefarms and spamfarms, is beneficial and you shouldn't discourage editors from doing this. I've reverted you at this article as well and I see from Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/Badagnani that this has been an issue for you in the past as well. Take our external links guidelines to heart, please. ThemFromSpace 03:33, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Romanization[edit]

Why are there two romanizations in Chinese? According to Unihan http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=4EAC there is only one pinyin version of this for this character.

Standard romanization of Non-Han Chinese things, people, place,... neednot to be pinyin, e.g. Harbin, Urumq, Va people, Hohhot. But this non-pinyin names are hardly to be remenbered by common Chinese people.--刻意(Kèyì) 01:19, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Goze[edit]

Hello. I removed a great deal of commentary from the References section to make it conform to the standard format used on Wikipedia. However, I realize the removed information may be informative, in which case I suggest you add it in as a footnote, HTML comment, or as a section on the article's talk page. armagebedar (talk) 03:37, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Harrassment[edit]

Hi Badagnani. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind lending your opinion on something. The user Bdb484 from the oud article has been adding what I know are bogus speedy deletion templates to an article I created on a famous Yemeni oud player, Jamil Ghanim. He began doing this almost as soon as I created the article yesterday, and has not once stopped, nor has even bothered attempting to explain which exact passages from which source he believes are "plagiarized". The article's talk page is filled with my comments, not his. I notice that he recently added a threatening message to your talk page with regard to the oud article, and that you of course deleted this bogus message. Well, he's basically doing the same thing with me now, and with no point here either. Basically, I was wondering if you could have a look at the Jamil Ghanim article and give your assessment of it. If you see anything which you feel needs work, please feel free to do so. I will assist you myself in this in any way I can (sources, rewriting, etc.).

hello[edit]

Hi, since you're active on Chinese article and can read Korean, I really need help at two clothing article. It's a well known fact that Tang Dynasty's clothing have been influenced by Central Asians (due to Tang's expansion in the area) but those are clothings are like these [14]+ [15]+ [16]. User Cydevil38 use Korean sources to state that Banbi and Beizi are "adopt" from central asian, and both of these clothings aren't visible in Central Asian clothings. I believe he is using Foreign influences during Tang Dynasty to generalize that all of Tang's clothing are adopt from there. He provided Korean sources I can't read or having the full version of it available. What should i do...--LLTimes (talk) 20:45, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

I think sources should be found in other languages than Korean, or that editor should translate the relevant passages into English and provide them in the footnotes (if you request him/her to do that, it is important that s/he do that). Badagnani (talk) 20:47, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Temple/Pagoda[edit]

Hi, about this translation of "chùa", there was a discussion here (in which you also shared your opinion). The translation from "chùa" to "pagoda" is widely used in guide books, historical books,... so why don't we continue to use this term instead of argueing about which is correct?Grenouille vert (talk) 08:25, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

This is not an argument, this is a discussion. A pagoda is a very tall tower-like building. Is that where the education took place, in the very tall tower? Badagnani (talk) 18:54, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Which is correct is not important here, the point is how "chùa" is translated in existed documents, I'm using A history of Vietnam: from Hong Bang to Tu Duc by Chapuis, he used the term "pagoda" to denote "chùa", in Việt Nam Borderless Histories, it was even noted that: "In many Vietnamese villages an architectural complex of temples (miếu and đền), pagodas, and the đình constituted the infrastructure of village culture and religious life" (page 34). And for your information, many pagodas, I mean chùa, are so poor that they cannot have their own tower (tháp), real tall towers (different than small tower which is monk's tomb) appear only in principal pagoda of a region or pagoda in big city. Grenouille vert (talk) 20:10, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

The question was, did the education take place in the very tall tower-like building? If not, the English term "pagoda" (which refers to a tall tower-like building) is inappropriate in this context. Badagnani (talk) 05:54, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Atkins Nutritionals, Inc.[edit]

Hello,

My name is Andrea Davidoff and I work for RF|Binder Partners, the PR agency of record for Atkins Nutritionals, Inc.

I recently posted on the Atkins diet Wikipedia talk page regarding some suggested changes for the Atkins Wikipedia entry. I noticed you have an interest in the Dieting Wikipedia page, and I would appreciate your assistance in reviewing these edits. We want to be sure to follow Wikipedia's guidelines relating to corporate voice on the site, so I am avoiding making these changes myself.

Of course, any edits to the site are solely up to you, I only wish to draw your attention to this page as we feel some of the information is outdated and inaccurate.

If you wish to contact me to discuss this further, please leave a message for me on my talk page or email me at andrea DOT davidoff AT rfbinder DOT com.

Suggestions for the Atkins Wikipedia entry:

1. We suggest a new section in the main entry “Scientific Support for the Atkins Nutritional Approach” as a foil to the “Controversies” section as several prominent scientists have used the Atkins Diet for a wide variety of illnesses. Some examples include:

a. Low-Carbohydrate Diets and the Brain - Eric H. W. Kossoff, M.D., Assistant Professor, Neurology and Pediatrics Medical Director, Ketogenic Diet Center Director, Pediatric Neurology Residency Program Johns Hopkins Hospital.

i. Kossoff, E. H., Krauss, G. L., and McGrogan, J. R., Freeman, J. M., "Efficacy of the Atkins diet as therapy for intractable epilepsy," From the Department of Neurology, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, 61, 2003, pages 1789–1791.

b. An Updated Perspective on the Role of Dietary Saturated Fat on Cardiovascular Risk - Jeff S. Volek, Ph.D., R.D., Assistant Professor, University of Connecticut, Neag School of Education.

i. Volek, J.S., Sharman, M.J., and Gomez A.L., et al., "An Isoenergetic Very Low Carbohydrate Diet Improves Serum HDL Cholesterol and Triacylglycerol Concentrations, the Total Cholesterol to HDL Cholesterol Ratio and Postprandial Lipemic Responses Compared with a Low Fat Diet in Normal Weight, Normolipidemic Women," The Journal of Nutrition, 133(9), 2003, pages 2756-2761.

ii. Volek, J.S., Westman, E.C., "Very-Low-Carbohydrate Weight-Loss Diets Revisited," Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, 69(11), 2002, pages 849-862.

2. We suggest the addition of new scientific, peer-reviewed studies for the “Scientific Studies” section. These studies have been funded and researched by outside third parties and are backed by scientific facts.

a. Shai, I., Schwarzfuchs, D., Henkin, Y., et al., “Weight loss with a Low-Carbohydrate, Mediterranean, or Low-Fat Diet,” New England Journal of Medicine, 359(3), 2008, pages 229-241.

b. Foster, G.D., Wyatt, H.R., Hill, J.O., et al., "A Randomized Trial of Low-Carbohydrate Diet for Obesity,” New England Journal of Medicine, 348(21), 2003, pages 2082-2090.

c. Brehm, B.J., Seeley, R.J., Daniels, S.R., D’Alessio, D.A., “A Randomized Trial Comparing a Very Low Carbohydrate Diet and a Calorie-Restricted Low Fat Diet on Body Weight and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Healthy Women,” Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 88(4), 2003, pages 1617-1623.

d. Brehm, B.J., Spang, S.E., Lattin, B.L., et al., “The Role of Energy Expenditure in the Differential Weight Loss in Obese Women on Low-Fat and Low-Carbohydrate Diets,” Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 90(3), 2005, pages 1475-1482.

e. Samaha, F.F., Iqbal, N., Seshadri, P., et al., “A Low-Carbohydrate as Compared with a Low-Fat Diet in Severe Obesity,” New England Journal of Medicine, 348(21), 2003, pages 2074-2081.

f. Seshadri, P., Iqbal, N., Stern, L., et al., “A Randomized Study Comparing the Effects of a Low-Carbohydrate Diet and a Conventional Diet on Lipoprotein Subfractions and C-reactive Protein Levels in Patients with Severe Obesity,” American Journal of Medicine, 117(6), 2004, pages 398-405.

g. Greene, P., Willett, W., Devecis, J., et al., “Pilot 12-Week Feeding Weight-Loss Comparison: Low-fat Vs. Low-Carbohydrate (Ketogenic) Diets,” abstract presented at The North American Association for the Study of Obesity Annual Meeting 2003, Obesity Research, 11S, 2003, page 95OR.

h. Westman, E.C., Yancy, W.S., Edman, J.S., et al., “Effect of 6-Month Adherence to a Very Low Carbohydrate Diet Program,” American Journal of Medicine, 113(1), 2002, pages 30-36.

3. Please elevate the Atkins Diet article from Start-Class to a higher quality rating. Related to this, we request an assessment of the article’s importance on Wikipedia’s Importance Scale.


I look forward to working with you.

ADavidoff (talk) 20:49, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, I assume you have an interest in this diet. All of our articles should be written from an impartial point of view, not favoring certain results over others (I assume the studies cited above all show how good this diet is, as opposed to pointing out any problems with it).

Goblet drum[edit]

Hi, Badagnani.

I haven't heard from you about the translations since last week. I wanted to check in and see if you'd found any sources for them or given any more thought to my questions about the encyclopedic nature of such an inclusion.

If not, I'm planning to remove the material today or tomorrow. Again, I'll just hide it, rather than deleting it, so the material is easy for you get to in the event you come up with sources or find consensus for such an inclusion. Thanks. — Bdb484 (talk) 17:15, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Again, many of the names are so well known (and even have their own articles) that they would not merit deletion. Let's work together to find sources rather than attack one another and work to degrade our content. Badagnani (talk) 20:17, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
You know, I spent this last week looking for sources and couldn't come up with even one, which makes me think that maybe these aren't accurate translations. I'd err on the side of including them, except that we still haven't found anyone who can explain why a list of translations is appropriate for an encyclopedia entry or useful to a reader looking to learn about the goblet drum. So I'm going to go ahead and hide them. I think it would be best if you were to then unhide each of them individually as you find reliable sources. — Bdb484 (talk) 23:21, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Again, many of the names are very well known and even have their own WP articles. You again and again fail to address this issue. I don't know which sources you used but most likely none of them were print sources such as the "New Grove Dictionary." Badagnani (talk) 23:44, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

In reply to your edit summary, "adding another reference (why has the editor who demanded references not added even a single reference yet, yet demanding that other editors do so?" [18], simply refer to WP:V which states, "Editors should provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is challenged or likely to be challenged, or the material may be removed." "The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material." --Ronz (talk) 00:56, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

ANI case[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. — Bdb484 (talk) 01:38, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi again. Just an update on the ANI case, which you don't seem to have had a chance to chime in at yet. There are several editors (including admins) who would like to see you blocked indefinitely. But it's clear to me, at least, that despite your chronic communication problems, you are making a lot of valuable contributions.
I've therefore endorsed another user's suggestion that instead of being blocked, the admins impose a WP:1RR restriction instead, which would allow you to continue editing freely without getting bogged down in high-level content disputes or edit wars. I'm hoping that you (or any other user who monitors this page) will chime in at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#User:Badagnani and let us know whether they think this might be an acceptable route to take.

The only alternative being raised there is taking the matter to ArbCom, which I think everyone would prefer to avoid, if possible.

Please briefly reply (here or there) as to whether you can agree to "1RR and interaction discouragement" as a solution. Thanks. -- Quiddity (talk) 21:08, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your interest in my editing. I'm not sure I understand this conclusion or how you see that one has been arrived at, as I see conflicting opinions at that page you referred me to. I am also confused why the user "Bdb484" was nincluded in this, as his/her editing practice (always removing large areas of text on articles that have been worked on by many knowledgeable editors over a period of years, then reverting again and again in a hyperaggressive manner, and showing little knowledge or interest in the actual subjects of the articles) is not included in this pool of editors who should be restricted to a single revert per day. The issue really is one of content, and the highly aggressive removals, and over 1 year of stalking, and accusations that I am a "spammer" (going on to this very day) on the part of these editors is very trying to an editor who prides him/herself in ensuring that our articles are as good and encyclopedic as possible. I love to work with other editors but this gang of three really are nearly impossible to work with in a collegial manner, as they follow me everywhere, always in an attempt to delete content, and never in the "building together" manner I really prefer, and which I think characterizes the ethos that our project represents at its best. Reversion would not be necessary by anyone if consensus were first built by these highly aggressive editors before large areas of text are removed from articles. Badagnani (talk) 03:19, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
By the way, have you seen User "GTBacchus"'s comments at User_talk:Ronz#Badagnani? What do you think of those, in light of the fact that User "GTBacchus" seems to present him/herself as an impartial administrator? If this is the way he presents himself in on-Wiki discussions I can't imagine what kind of things he is saying on the off-Wiki discussions that are certainly going on behind the scenes. Badagnani (talk) 03:25, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Point by point:
Bdb484: Do you have a long history of negative interaction with Bdb484? I was familiar with your interactions with GraYoshi2x and Ronz, but I do not recall seeing Bdb484's name until the last week. Depending on what your history with him is (ie. is it days, weeks, months, or years long? Does it span a few, or dozens of articles?), I'll ask him about modifying his interactions with you, and good-faith presumptions, accordingly.
GTBacchus: Those are some extremely disappointing comments. I'll definitely talk to him about that later.


Your habits that need improvement:
1. Some editors are upset at your unclear/incorrect edit summaries, eg. It would be good if you could be more careful to keep edit-summaries brief and informative, and not editorialize in them (eg, this kind of information just clutters up the history page, and is unlikely to ever be seen).
2. You use a lot of hyperbole and superlatives in your talkpage comments, which ends up lessening the impact they have on readers. You also tend to write in 'generalities' instead of specifics, when in disputes. For example, at Talk:Goblet drum#List of translations and in editsummaries (eg), you didn't ever explain why a list of names/translations was fundamental/basic/etc. From Bdb484's perspective (as I imagine it) the list of names that he originally deleted is very long, and looks quite like a misplaced/misformatted list of interwiki links. Can you see how he would have interpreted it as something akin to "a list of 250 translations of the word 'spoon' in a top-section at the spoon article", and hence understandably deleted it?
3. Sources. This is the main issue that multiple editors see as a problem: Some editors have a particularly strict interpretation of WP:Reliable sources. However, linking to commercial sites, like this, is something that even moderate-RS-interpreting editors are uncomfortable with. I'll try to find some more examples to discuss in detail, later. But basically, it would be good if you could be a lot more careful as to which internet sites you use as sources (eg. blogs and flickr images are not usable. Commercial sites should be avoided. Primary sources are tricky). Give WP:RS a thorough read through, if you haven't done so recently.
I'll leave it at that for now. Along with any other replies you'd like to give to the above, could you please specifically tell me how extensive your history with Bdb484 is, and either accept or turn-down the suggested 1RR editing-restriction? (so that we can begin to close out the ANI thread.) Thanks again. -- Quiddity (talk) 05:50, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Since I'm mentioned here.... Badagnani, I do not present myself as impartial when it comes to you. I acknowledge that I'm still upset with the shitty treatment I received from you in the past, and I see no evidence that you understand how or why you've upset so many people. You told vile lies about me (yes, I've got diffs), and frankly, I dislike you rather strongly.

That said, if you respond to the criticisms coming from your peers here, and if you adjust your behavior in recognition of community norms regarding communication, then you'll be welcome here. In that event, I'll shut the hell up and stay out of your way. Personally, I don't think you can, and that's why I think you should leave. Very, very few editors have ever pushed me to such a position.

As for your assumption that I'm talking about you off-wiki: Don't flatter yourself. I don't do backroom politics, I'm not friends off-wiki with other Wikipedians, I don't talk about you in my spare time, and your assuming that you know what I do off-wiki is another manifestation of what I find disgusting about your attitude. You don't know shit about me. What I have to say about you, I'm comfortable saying to your face. I don't like you. I think your social skills are completely absent. I don't even like not liking you, because I don't like to feel this way about anyone; it doesn't bring out the best side of me (obviously). In order to keep working here, you have to adjust your style of communication. I don't think you have the understanding or ability to do so, but if you prove me wrong, I will shut up and get out of the way.

I fully expect that you'll delete this post, and that's just fine; you're not on my watchlist.

Quiddity, I appreciate what you're doing, and I'm certainly willing to discuss my own actions in this matter. -GTBacchus(talk) 15:45, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Last minute chance[edit]

Badagnani, I think you really should appear to leave your opinion to WP:ANI. If you agree with the proposed group WP:1RR and WP:CIVILITY, you can at least avoid WP:ARBCOM against you. I know this is all stressful for you, but you have no choice at this moment. You should either explain your stance right now to ANI, or would watch yourself honestly "doomed". Although the ArbCom could ban Ronz and GraYoshi to interact with you in order to stop the ongoing disruption, it can also a high risk that you could be banned for 3 or 6 months or up to one year like some editors such as an editor who had written many FA articles and WikiCup runner-up, or also another FA contributer. In this circumstance, your fine contribution for 4 years would be underestimated, but your shortcomings would be emphasized. Therefore, the time is really impending, so you have to appear at least to ANI.--Caspian blue 16:59, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Block proposal[edit]

An editor at WP:ANI#Why ArbCom.3F has proposed that you be blocked due to your unwillingness to discuss your edits, in the presence of numerous complaints. There is still time for you to respond at ANI if you wish to avoid this eventuality. A number of people have commented in the thread about your long-time reluctance to respond when anyone questions your edits. This may account for their low level of patience. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 02:03, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Indef block[edit]

Stop x nuvola.svg
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for repeated abuse of editing privileges. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first.

The above arbitration request is probably going to be rejected as unneeded. This account is blocked indefinitely per discussions at Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/IncidentArchive554#User:Badagnani_category_blanking_again and Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents/Badagnani. This is a block, not a community ban. If the editor addresses concerns properly and make a convincing unblock statement, that can be decided. I will request a community discussion prior to any unblock as many people have spent a lot of time investigating and working on this matter. Any administrator who considers an unblock request needs to fully familiarize themselves with the facts of the matter. This may take some time and discussion, especially with regard to possible unblocking conditions such as editing restrictions. An indef block was already approved at Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/IncidentArchive554#User:Badagnani_category_blanking_again, but a final chance one month block was placed instead with the blocking admin noting that the next block should be indefinite. Thus, this block is indefinite. Jehochman Brrr 23:54, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

  • If it is wanted, I'd like to offer you my advice on any questions you might have.

What is to discuss? Badagnani edits in good faith. He has contributed an ENORMOUS amount to the encyclopedia and engages collegially with lots of editors. Unfortunately, there are several editors who disagree with him who relentlessly chase him to new articles to incite conflict. Some others who have old grudges againt him have joined in to take this opportunity to try to get rid of him, and Jehochman has once again short circuited our established processes, disregarded our procedures and imposed his personal whim. SNAFU. ChildofMidnight (talk) 05:07, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

CTM scope review[edit]

Following on from this discussion, I have started to review the scope of WP:CTM's coverage on WP. There are two main possiblilies, so far:

  1. We refine our scope according to the "written in the last 50 years or so" statement agreed upon a few months back and included in the Overview - Scope section on the main page.
  2. We redefine our scope to include only living people and their works (while retaining the other relevent articles such as contemporary classical music etc).

The former position was agreed by consensus, of course, so redefining our scope to the latter position is a radical shift that needs full discussion and consensus. In essence, the question of redefining arises from the recent mass sourcing drama:

  1. It has been suggested that CTM take full responsibility for all composer BLPs.
  2. If that goes ahead, WPComposers may wish to unbanner composer BLPs and leave them to CTM (see here for example).
  3. Therefore, CTM simply focusses in on those people relevent to our project but not bannered by other projects eg composers with BLPs.
  4. Other articles on people are then treated in a similar way ie we would then cover BLPs only and their related articles (plus any other contemporary-music-related articles, as appropriate).

The full review and discussion is found at: Wikipedia:WikiProject Contemporary music/Scope.

I am also looking more generally at our project's focus, especially as regards the notability criteria etc: User:Jubileeclipman/CTM. Thoughts on that are also most welcome!

Thank you --Jubilee♫clipman 14:08, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

WP:CTM guidelines regarding infoboxes[edit]

In the wake of the proceedings at the Composers project, I am reviewing CTM's guidelines regarding infoboxes: at present we simply follow all the other CM-projects on this issue.

AfD nomination of American hip hop[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is American hip hop. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/American hip hop. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Montmorencycherrytree.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Montmorencycherrytree.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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.

Replaceable fair use File:Balfafiddlesticks3.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Balfafiddlesticks3.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 or which could be adequately covered with text alone. 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.

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. 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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Courcelles 05:39, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Xoigac.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Xoigac.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 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 in|article name}} 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.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Tillamoookcheddarbookcover.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Tillamoookcheddarbookcover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator 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. LadyofShalott 00:41, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of George Carlo[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article George Carlo has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable scientist. Having looked through the history of this article and done a search for sources, I cannot find enough coverage of him in third-party sources to satisfy the notability guidelines.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Chinese Music History[edit]

Hi, I found via the participants list of WikiProject Chinese language entertainment. I myself have worked on the article for Chinese rock a few times in the past and am dedicated to present Chinese music online to those that don't speak Chinese, i.e. 5/6 of the world.

As you can see from my user page, I am also one of the founding members of Rock in China (which currently expanded to Music-China.org). Our community is also a Mediawiki-based system solely focussed on Chinese music with one major difference: Whereas Wikipedia would like to be an encyclopedia with the aim to capture humankind's knowledge in brief, short and destinctive articles, it is our aim to present Chinese music in all its details and as much information as possible. As we like to say, we are preparing the reference page that Wikipedia is linking to. You can see the page for Cui Jian as example where this is implemented.

The main reason I am writing to you is that we have started a new project at Music-China.org called 'Chinese Music History' during which we want to document the complete history of Chinese music in all its details and cross-reference it to Wikipedia, i.e. work on both platforms according to each platforms' aims.

I would like to invite you, as member of the WikiProject Chinese language entertainment to help us build up both wikis, Wikipedia and Music-China.org. Please feel free to read more about us and the the project.

File permission problem with File:Sanbeiji.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Sanbeiji.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 created 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. Stefan2 (talk) 17:53, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Cashewjuice.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Cashewjuice.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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Kelly hi! 01:13, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bernard Rands[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bernard Rands has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Mostly unsourced biography of a living person.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —Ryulong (琉竜) 02:21, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Request to take part in a survey[edit]

Hi there. I would very much appreciate it if you could spend ~2 minutes and take a short survey - a project trying to understand why the most active Wikipedia contributors (such as yourself) may reduce their activity, or retire. I sent you an email with details, if you did not get it please send me a wikiemail, so that I can send you an email with the survey questions. I would very much appreciate your cooperation, as you are among the most active Wikipedia editors who show a pattern of reduced activity, and thus your response would be extremely valuable. Thanks! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:43, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
