Bouloussou Soubramaniam Sastroulou[edit]

Bonjour Bsskchaitanya,

J'ai vu que tu as créé une page sur la WP:en à propos de Bouloussou Soubramaniam Sastroulou.

Est-ce toi aussi qui a créé sous IP la page de la WP francophone sur la même personne?

Comme elle ne correspond pas tout à fait aux critères d'admission, elle a été proposée à la suppression ([1]). Tu devrais peut-être venir donner ton avis. En tout cas, il ne faut pas enlever le bandeau sur l'article, mais défendre ton avis en expliquant pourquoi tu trouves que cette page devrait rester dans WP.

Nawab[edit]

I see you've been creating entries about the Nawab family. Unfortunately these miss the most important information. A lead section that gives the basic information. The beginning of Nawab Sayyid Ghulam Muhammad Ali Khan I Bahadur doesn't state he's Indian royalty, I only see that in the stub tag. Please say something to the effect of "Nawab Sayyid Ghulam Muhammad Ali Khan I Bahadur was Xth sultan of Y." so people know what the article is about. - Mgm|(talk) 10:07, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Sanskrit[edit]

No problems sir. I was referring to vandals. Whether we like it or not vandals and trolls exist on Wikipedia. The fellow who complained at Talk:Sanskrit#It_is_not_the_nationwide_language_dears says the Sanskrit article on Wikipedia is a hyped article - that we are giving it as much hype to it as possible. He also says "Please provide some useful or if u dare give REAL facts about sanskrit."

He is most likely a troll who is not going to bother reading your essay on sanskrit posted at Talk:Sanskrit. Why bother wasting your time by replying to his rants? The Talk:Sanskrit page is not to reply to trolls, its about discussing things which pertain to the article only. Bernard Shaw said "I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it." So ignore this kind of persons. ­ Kris (☎ talk | contribs) 13:39, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Retroflex approximant[edit]

Hi, recently you have added Telugu to the list of languages in the article Retroflex approximant. This is incorrect. Please listen to the sound file in that page - as far I know, this sound can be heard only in Tamil and Malayalam among major Indian langauages. I still remember how much I had to struggle to teach my Telugu friends how to pronounce Malayalam "ഴ" - ழ in Tamil - :) . Hope you would revert the change. Somebody had added Marathi and Vedic Sanscrit to the list and I removed them sometime back (please see the discussion page of the article). Maybe people tend to confuse this with Retroflex lateral approximant, which is a totally different sound. - sooraj 21:52, 29 November 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I appreciate your knowledge of Dravidian languages. Being able to speak both Tamil and Telugu at a native level is definitely something that I would envy about; and I did notice it in your profile before I put the comment. But I have to say that you have misunderstood what a Retroflex approximant is. You yourself has admitted that "Zha" (ழ)is not present in modern Telugu. It is exactly this "zha" that is called Retroflex approximant. Please listen to the sound sample in that article, convince yourself and revert your edit. - sooraj 20:57, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, I am no linguistics expert, but this is what I know about "chillaksharams" in Malayalam script: Certain consonants of the Malayalam alphabet (ണ, ന, റ, ല, ള) are extensively used without having a vowel attached to them (especially at the end of words and prefixes) and these "pure consonants" are denoted by a different set of letters called "chillaksharangal" (ണ്‍, ന്‍, ര്‍, ല്‍, ള്‍). When a consonant does not have a corresponding chillaksharam, its pure form is denoted by adding a special sign called "chandrakkala" above it. Even those letters that have a "chillaksharam" form may sometimes be used with a "chandrakkala" to show the pure consonant. Hope this helps you. sooraj 20:13, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Manyam Zamindar may be deleted[edit]

A tag has been placed on Manyam Zamindar, 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 little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. If you plan to add more material to the article, I advise you to do so immediately. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page.

Hello Chaitanya[edit]

Hi. I have seen you various articles on yanam. Nice to see you have contributed well. I have written the article Dadala Raphael Ramanayya and uploaded some very rare pictures not available anywhere. But they got deleted due to lack of license tags. Actually I do not have much idea on how to attach license tags. I have uploaded again and rqst you to help secure them. pdadala

Hi Chaitanya[edit]

Thanks for checking the tags for me. Yes I have removed certain matter which will not have answers but instead create and sustain unfounded rumours. It is not right to write things on public domain on hearsay., esp of people who had mattered to our country. But neverthless, I should appreciate you for airing your views. May be i could allow you to read Dadala's autobiography which was then written for select audience and private circulation. It was published in private capacity sometime during 70's and went out of circulation later on. Seasons greetings to you my Friend. - Pdadala

Dravidian Wiki Project[edit]

Hello Bsskchaitanya,

I saw your edit on Dravidian topics template. It was a pleasant surprise to see someone taking part in editing the Dravidian topics template in regards to Dravidian culture since I have thought of forming a Dravidian Wiki Project. This will help expand on the topics of different Dravidian ethnic groups such as the Kannadigas, Telugus, Tamils, Malayalis, and more Dravidian groups. This project will also go beyond borders to include the Brahui Dravdians of Pakistan, and the Malto people of Bangladesh. It will also expand on the dances, arts, and literature of each Dravidian group in South Asia. Furthermore, the Dravidian people page needs a lot of work to be done due to vandals and others changing the info on the page and filling it with major POVs. So much so, the page on Dravidian people has been turned into a propoganda tool to discredit Dravidians for their existence. Earlier, I have put a map showing the different regions Dravidians are in along with some pics of different Dravidians, Vedda Dravidians, and Australian aboriginals to show similarities. On the Talk:Dravidian people there is a small discussion in regards to the existence of Dravidians. Therefore, I have put a neutralitiy/factual accuracy tag and a cleanup tag on the page. Administration has been notified of this. Having you on this team would be a plus and starting a Dravidian Wiki Project would be of benefit to wikipedia and its readers for further knowledge of other cultures. Please let me know if you would be interested. Regards.

Unspecified source for Image:Wallajah2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Wallajah2.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. 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 06:25, 8 January 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ­ Kris (talk) 06:25, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Image source[edit]

Hi, a user who goes around tagging images in bad faith has tagged Wallajah2.jpg which you uploaded. Can you please follow this up? thanks Parthi talk/contribs 05:56, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, It's not sufficient to provide references as you have done for Image:Wallajah2.jpg. You need to specify where you sourced the image from. In this case, if the portrait is over sixy years old then you can use the {{PD-Old}} tag. If it is an artwork whose author is dead over 100 years ago, then you can use {{pd-art}}. Thanks Parthi talk/contribs 07:51, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Happy new year to you too (belated)[edit]

Wow, that is excellent and exhaustive work on Yanam. Kudos. I can see only 2 areas which can improve:

  • The contents box size needs to be reduced.
  • References should better come from a mix of sources, now its only from one source.

Do let me know if I can be of any help. ­ Kris (talk) 23:43, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Chaitanya[edit]

I am really sorry. Unfortunately I do not have any key reference materials on people you mentioned below. If I stumble across any info, I will be glad to contribute to the best of my ability. I have great love and regards towards Yanam and its wonderful people. But also in a way, just like you said, I have understood through Monsieur Dadala who had many times during his later years passionately expressed great feelings about the France, its culture and its people. But like you said history is history and we have to learn adapting to the changes in the process of evolution. You are most welcome to peruse the autobiographical copy I have on Monsieur Dadala. I have replied your email today. Pls check. bye take care —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pdadala (talkcontribs) 10:11, 9 January 2007 (UTC).

Your attention is required with Image:Wallajah2.jpg [edit]

Editors that don't provide an edit summary tend to look like vandals[edit]

I have noticed you commonly don't enter an edit summary as you didn't when you edited Manyam Zamindar (see this edit). This causes me problems. When I patrol for vandalism, I use the summary to make a preliminary decision on whether or not the post is a vandal edit or not. If the summary is present (or at least a section header, the part inside the /* */), I commonly decide the edit is legit and move on.

However, if no edit summary is available, I typically resort to loading the diff for the edit. This takes time. For that reason, if your edits are all valid, I ask that you provide edit summaries. For more on how to enter an edit summary, please read Help:Edit summary.

Incidentally, it is not just me that appreciate having edit summaries. When you omit your summary, you may be telling various bots that you are vandalizing pages. For this reason, please consider providing that summary. It is very important. You can enter that summary via the edit summary box on edit pages (as shown below).

Edit Summary-2.png

The edit summary appears in black italics in the following places: * Use the enhanced watchlist to see all recent changes in the watched pages, not just the last change in each page.

For more tips on how to avoid being mistaken for a vandal, please visit Steps You Can Take to Avoid Being Thought of as a Vandal.

You appear to rely on the section links (the part inside the /* */ part). We need more information than simply which section you edited. Will (Talk - contribs) 05:58, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

First, it sounds like you might be able to communicate better in French than English. If this is true, I can attempt to find a French speaker to help you out.
Second, I never stated you were a vandal. I knew you weren't when I saw your diff. The problem is that the diff must be loaded (taking time that I would prefer to be chasing real vandals). If I thought you might have been a vandal, a bot, with more limited intelligence, might as well. Will (Talk - contribs) 08:57, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Telugu Script[edit]

Dear Mr Chaitanya, I have seen the input you made in the article on 'Telugu Script' and I appreciate your effort. I would like to bring to your attention many articles being written in Wiki which mention that Telugu script evolved from Kannada scipt. Historians always mentioned the common script as 'Telugu-Kannada' script. The spread of original Brahmi from coastal Andhra (Bhattiprolu) to west India and further down to Kannada-speaking areas is a strong basis to argue that it was Telugu script that gave rise to modern Kannada script. Please correct me if I am wrong. Is there any historical evidence to show that the original home of Chalukyans was Rayalaseema region and that they spoke Telugu? Kumarrao 11:32, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Origin[edit]

Dear Mr Chaitanya, The Brahmi Script chart put by you in the article is very misleading. It gives an impression that Telugu script originated from the Kannada script. In fact, many Kannada enthusiasts in wikipedia are now insisting upon this matter. It is well-known that Bhattiprolu Brahmi script evolved into Telugu-Kannada script which diversified later into two independent scripts. The National Museum displays which are included in the article would serve the purpose. The chart can be deleted.Kumarrao 08:28, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Please do something about my request made above. The Tables T1 and T2 in the article Telugu script clearly mentioned the evolution of Bhattiprolu Brahmi script into 5th century Telugu-Kannada script of Salankayana period. Based on the chart placed by you, Users like Gnanapiti have been insisting that Telugu script has originated and evolved from 'Old Kannada script'. Kumarrao 06:16, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Request #2[edit]

The Figures 1 and 2 in the articles Telugu script and Telugu language figures clearly mention the evolution of Brahmi script of Mauryan times towards modern Telugu and Kannada scripts. It is as given below:

1. Brahmi script of Mauryan period (3rd centrury BCE)

2. Brahmi script on Bhattiprolu Urn containing Buddha's dhatus (3rd century BCE)

3. Brahmi script of Satavahana period (1st centurey CE)

4. Brahmi script of Ikshvaku period (3d century CE)

5. Brahmi script of Gupta period (4th century CE)

6. Ancient Telugu-Kannada script of Salankayana period (5th century)

7. Tamil scripts of Pallava period (7th century)

8. Telugu-Kannada script of 7th century

9. Telugu-Kannada script of Eastern Chalukyas (10th century)

10. Telugu-Kannada script of Rajarajanarendra period (11th century)

11. Telugu-Kannada script of Kakatiya Ganapatideva (13th century)

12. Telugu script of Prolaya Vemareddy (14th century).

It is thus very clear that both the scripts had a common origin in Brahmi script as found on Bhattiprolu stupa urn. To call it s "Old Kannada" script is nothing but travesty of history, even though some authors might have referred it so. In fact, these figures were sourced from the same citation (Adluri, Seshu Madhava Rao Parachuri, Sreenivas. Origins of Telugu Script) which Gnanapiti refers to. But, Gnanapiti does not want to take cognizance of it. As a compromise, I agreed that it can be written as:

"The Telugu script is derived from Telugu-Kannada script which is also known as old Kannada script and developed independently at the same time as modern Kannada script which is why it has strong resemblance with it"

However, Gnanapiti insists that it should be "Old Kannada" rather than "Telugu-Kannada". It is plain chauvanism being imposed on articles regarding Telugu, Telugu language and Telugu script. Wiki should not encourage such fanaicas and chauvanists. Kumarrao 09:33, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Final request[edit]

Dear Mr Chaitanya, I wonder why you have ingnored my previous requests. I have been waging a lone battle against a bunch of irrational fanatics regardimg my edits to Telugu script and Telugu language. If you think my point of view was wrong, say so. I shall stop this thing. I am asking you because you were the user who inserted the chart under contention and which is being exploited by others by ignoring other inputs.Kumarrao 09:39, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Frustration[edit]

I am thoroughly convinced that Wikipedia is a highly susceptible tool for spreading falsehoods by a group(s) of people who can collude among themselves and then twist, distort and protect their articles from well-meaning Users. At the same time, they can prevent others from editing their contributions in a clever and premediated fashion. I do not regret that I lost to a bunch of fanatics and chauvanists. I only hope that Wikipedia owners, administrators and others take notice of my frustration and amend the guidelines to make Wiki more credible and authentic. Kumarrao 14:51, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Telugu script[edit]

Dear Mr Chaitanya,

I live in Delhi. I visted National museum three times. There is a gallery devoted to Indian languages, scrits and their evolution. There are many display boards which clearly depict the evolution of Brahmi script. I watched many boards in which Bhatiprolu Brahmi scrpit was shown to have evolved into Telugu-Kannada common script. I did not find any mention of the word "Old Kannada" anywhere. I am sure the displays were painstaking works of scores of British and Indian linguists and historians. I really do not know who created this 'Old Kannada' theory and how some books and websites give credence to this. The chart you placed in the article has been exploited by a bunch of fanatics to insist that Telugu script evolved from 'old Kannada' script, that too in Telugu articles. They would not like to look at the two figures you placed in which 'Telugu-Kannada' was mentioned. On top of it, they brand the souce as unreliable (the same source they cite to stick to'Old Kannada' theory). Few sentences of Adluri written in his webpages in good faith and which reflect his sincere intentions are cited to say that Adluri is not a historian. On the other hand, a couple of guys who have created websites which are drenched with Kannada-centric theories of Indian history are great authorities of Indian history. I have given up arguing with this bunch of fanatics. If someone wants to take up the baton, welcome.Kumarrao 06:27, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

--Mr Chaitanya's view point is correct. It is sad that some Users are interested in establishing the 'superiority' of their language, region etc., by collaborating with each other, selectively citing some evidences, quoting unknown writers, citing webpages and on top of it, browbeating well-meaning and impassionate Users. Plenty of such indications are available in Kannada and Karnataka related articles. I should say they are during a 'terrific' job.Kumarrao 12:14, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Mr Chaitanya,

Please protect my edits in Telugu language. Kumarrao 11:28, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Bouloussou_Soubramaniam_Sastroulou.jpg. 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 22:26, 15 July 2007 (UTC).

Regarding Deletion of Photos[edit]

In order to tag the images properly you really need to know the history of the image. Do you know if these images were published anywhere? There are different rules for determining copyright on images that were published or unpublished. You really need to know what year they were taken and if you know who took them or who the copyright holder is it would make it easier. See [this page] to help determine if the image is in the public domain. If it is not in the public domain, the image will have to meet all the criteria of Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria to be used as fair use. If you know who the copyright holder is then you can ask them for permission to release the image under the GFDL or Creative Commons. All of this is complex and usually very difficult for historic photos, but these are the rules that have evolved on Wikipedia over time to try and avoid copyright infringement and using too many "non-free" images.

If you want me to look at an image and give you an opinion on how to tag it and if I think it will stay on Wikipedia, I can do that. Just give me the link to it and make sure you have everything you know about the image on the image description page. -Regards Nv8200p talk 02:11, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Sanskrit words and phrases category[edit]

Greetings - I am a relatively new Wikipedian and a Sanskrit student, and discovered that the vast majority of Sanskrit words and phrases had not been categorized. Therefore, I chose to take on the project of doing this. Unfortunately a few days ago, another editor decided to revert some of my additions to this category, and a dialogue with this person has proved to be fruitless.

As you are a Sanskrit expert, I am in need of assistance in determining the best additions to this category and am hoping you may be able to help in this situation. There are words and phrases that deserve to be added that this person will not accept. The current revert list appears in this person's contribution section, and included in the list are words including Apris, and I can see no reason why this should not be added. Yesterday, he deleted the word 'Sanskrit' from the list as well. Thank you for any assistance you would like to provide.--Cminard (talk) 11:29, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your most helpful response. I will approach the Hinduism Wikipedians on their talk page that I just located, and request their assistance regarding this matter. Nice to meet you as well.--Cminard (talk) 11:12, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Indian Flag Hoisting in Yanam, 1954.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Indian Flag Hoisting in Yanam, 1954.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image 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 '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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Nishkid64 (Make articles, not wikidrama) 17:55, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Eurécom.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Madras Presidency[edit]

I find that you had added the list of Chief Ministers to the article. As the article grows, due to space constraints, I might be compelled to remove the section. Hope you don't mind. I've taken this decision only because there exists a duplicate copy of the same list. To reduce the size of the article, we could remove this stuff and provide a link to the main list, instead. Thanks-RavichandarMy coffee shop 23:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Ananda Ranga Pillai[edit]

Hi! Well, I just read about your great-grandfather. It's really good to interact with the descendant of a historical personality. By the way, I understand that you are interested in [{French India]]. If you can spare some time, do have a look at this article on Ananda Ranga Pillai.-RavichandarMy coffee shop 05:27, 14 November 2008 (UTC)


File copyright problem with File:BJPStates2008.PNG[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:BJPStates2008.PNG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. multichill (talk) 13:52, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:Children's Park in Yanam.jpg[edit]

File:Children's Park in Yanam.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:Children's Park in Yanam.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:Children's Park in Yanam.jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 15:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Ali Khan Asaf Jah II[edit]

Are you sure that the Nizam was defeated in 1795? Going by what i have read, due to mutual distrust, Raghunathrao joined hands with the Nizam. Nizam marched towards Poona in 1763 and was defeated at Rakshabhuvan by Madhavrao Peshwa. Kindly clarify. Thanks Kesangh (talk) 14:02, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Reddy[edit]

I observed that this chaotic article has lot of fights related to whether Reddy is a social group or a honorary title.Reddy denotes a social grouping of many castes and is also used by communities like Kammas,Yadavas,Agnikula Kshatriyas and Vokkaligas as a title to denote a Village Headman.I presently have requested a move to Reddy(Social Group) to avoid further fights.Give your view on the talk page.-Raghavan(Talk) 12:25, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

The article Vavilla Ramaswamy Sastrulu has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

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.

Thanks for uploading File:Cessions by Hyderabad State to British from 1759 to 1853.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.

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cessions_by_Hyderabad_State_to_British_from_1759_to_1853.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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 14:14, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Mark Peyrade.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Mark Peyrade.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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Marc Peyrade[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Marc Peyrade 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 person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, 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.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Samuel Tardieu (talk) 14:21, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 19:13, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:EnricoDeNicola.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 21:01, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

File:ENST.gif listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:ENST.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination.

SBPBK Satyanarayana Rao[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of SBPBK Satyanarayana Rao, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-andhrapradesh/former-union-minister-passes-away/article1110231.ece.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.
