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.

Anonymous editor disputing Chinese-ness of southern Chinese

IP edits from the 122.105.x.x range, which I believe originate from the same person, has been disputing how people from Guangdong and Fujian are not ethnic Chinese and have been victims of some genocide by the northern Chinese, and that present-day Vietnamese are the same and northern Chinese are a different race, ignoring how things have assimilated in the past 1500 years and that China was sustained in the south for a few centuries. You can see Talk:Hoa and look up my edit history to see where he's been for the past month or two disputing everything Chinese. HkCaGu (talk) 18:44, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

I am open to alternative point of views and don't hold on very tightly to traditional ideas of ethnicity myself. Nonetheless, if its going to be on Wikipedia, it better be verifiable. None of that "very difficult to find and generally not found on the internet reference" routine please. Thanks for the heads up - Bob K 18:52, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Cut & Paste moves

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently copied the contents of a page and pasted it into another with a different name. Specifically, you copied the contents of University of Putra. This is what we call a "cut and paste move", and it is very undesirable because it splits the article's history, which is needed for attribution and is helpful in many other ways. The mechanism we use for renaming an article is to move it to a new name which both preserves the page's history and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. In most cases, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. If there is an article that you cannot move yourself by this process, follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves to request the move by another. Also, if there are any other articles that you copied and pasted, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Same deal with University of Science I'm afraid. Sorry I'm slapping this template on you, but yeah just letting you know that I've tagged the two for a history merge with their respective articles anyway. Chan Yin Keen | UTC 14:02, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem. I just realised the problem myself. Funny how I never noticed the Move tab until this morning. - Bob K 14:05, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Najib Tun Razak

Dear Bob K,

You have been quite free to send numerous messages to me regarding wikipedia rules. I would like to remind your, regarding the wiki for Najib Tun Razak, personal blogs CANNOT be used as source. There have been sufficient explanation regarding this on the talk page, please do proceed to the talk page and indulge in a healthy debate with me if you do feel that citing personal blogs is in line with wikipedia's policy on the biography for living people. Thank you.

I have not been involved in editing the article on Najib Tun Razak. Don't see why I should get involved. Moreover, you left this message unsigned. Not sure who you are. Most of the warning messages I've left today were for anonymous users vandalising the article on Anwar Ibrahim (see history). You saying you're the one? - Bob K | Talk 18:18, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Whether it is done in good faith or not, that is another matter altogether. The article on Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister MUST have credible sources, otherwise you might cause wikipedia trouble. This paragraph should be removed, until those who wish to insert this paragraph have 'high quality sources'. This subject here should only revolve upon its authenticity, not me. Those who wish to protect this article from edits should protect it without that paragraph. Wikipedia might face legal action from the Deputy Prime Minister Office or the Government of Malaysia if that article remain, with its authenticity in doubt.60.51.116.149 (talk) 19:00, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Actually it is part of Wikipedia's policy. See WP:POV. - Bob K | Talk 19:06, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, just because you think I am biased, that does not mean that you are allowed to publish facts with unreliable sources. The person who put in that article did it in bad faith, as he is trying to smear Najib's name by citing personal blog's as a source. THAT IS NOT RIGHT. I am biased, fine, ban me. That paragraph does not cite a credible source, remove it.
I am feeling you are biased as well, you, as well, prefer to smear Najib's name by publishing 'facts' from unreliable sources. That is against wikipedia's policy. Either you do nothing, or ban me, and remove that paragraph. You can't have the cake and eat it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.51.116.149 (talk) 19:11, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
There are procedures in Wikipedia regarding disputed facts and the disputed section has been tagged appropriately. IMHO, I found only 1 sentence and 1 paragraph in the section that would be questionable. The rest seemed quite well cited. - - Bob K | Talk 19:14, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
The whole paragraph is rotten. Nothing in that paragraph is well cited, and that paragraph even calls Najib and his followers terrorist. Wikipedia is definitely going to hear soon from the DPM's office. hell, I have said this a million times, personal blogs CANNOT be used as a source, no matter how true or untrue a fact is. What a sad case, the anti-Najib brigade is on wikipedia. 60.51.116.149 (talk) 19:26, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
And the use of Yang Berbontot isn't? Anyway, the section has been re-written to state only the facts with the citations improved upon. Whether or not blogs can be used as a source or otherwise, WP:SPS has some guidelines. I do agree that the tone of the section was overwhelmingly POV, hence the edit. Nonetheless, not everywhere is like Malaysia. Politicians cannot force unflattering opinions of them to be suppressed just because they don't like it. - Bob K | Talk 19:40, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Just in case you do not know, this article fall under here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons

let me quote Self-published books, zines, websites, and blogs should never be used as a source for material about a living person, unless written or published by the subject of the article (see below). "Self-published blogs" in this context refers to personal and group blogs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.51.116.149 (talk) 19:42, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

The point is moot. The section has been amended with citations to reliable sources and POV opinions exorcised. - Bob K | Talk 19:45, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Template:Politics of Malaysia

I've edited the template box according to the structure of the federal and state governments from what I studied in Sixth Form. Is there anything you'd like to comment on the changes I made? - Myinuk (talk) 02:13, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Why don't you put up your proposed structure in the Talk page. We can discuss it there. - Bob K | Talk 02:58, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi!

Thanks for your effort on List of schools in Malaysia. I had just noticed the existence of this page. I think if a group of Wikipedians work together, this can be easily splitted. If you are interested in this, please sign your name at User:Mark Chung/School Project Members. I'll then plan further steps. Thank you.

P/s: For those who understand Malay, please visit http://forum.engkabang.net and get some info from there. Thanks! --Mark Chung (talk) 09:31, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thanks a lot, Bobk, for listing your name in the list. Wikipedia shall be improved! Again, Thanks! --Mark Chung (talk) 00:05, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Ummmph...

Okay, since you are the only one who responded for A FEW WEEKS, I think my only hope is you. Notify me when you're ready and we'll start editing in no time. Thanks.--Mark Chung (talk) 03:36, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to Contribute

Hi fellow Malaysians! Please note that I have created a article entitled Kuala Terengganu by-election, 2009 for the coming by-election on 17 January, 2008. I would appreciate if Malaysians Wikipedians out there lend a hand and contribute to the article. Regards. Roman888 (talk) 17:49, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Image permission problem with Image:Mar_Thoma_Syrian_Church_Crest.png

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Mar_Thoma_Syrian_Church_Crest.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the image (or other media 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 image to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the image 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 image'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. Images lacking evidence of permission may 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. PhilKnight (talk) 10:53, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

PASOK

First, PASOK in English generally refers to the Greek party, so per WP:MOS, the article should reside there, with a redirect to the Malaysian party (which I put at the top). Second, you didn't think of fixing these links that now lead nowhere, did you? - Biruitorul Talk 16:06, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

PASOK

Panhellenic Socialist Movement was a ruling party of Greece for thirty years, United Pasok Nunukragang National Organisation is a small political party.
