Image Tagging Image:Wille Nile.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Wille Nile.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, ie in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{gfdl}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{fairuse}}.) See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thanks so much. --Secretlondon 06:01, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Image:Wille Nile.jpg has been listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded, Image:Wille Nile.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Jewell / Jewel[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for contacting me.

My addition to Jewell had nothing to do with the spelling of the name Jewell. The addition was actually a reference to the gemstone, and not about any names. Disambiguation pages exist in order to point people in the direction of the article they were originally looking for. It is entirely plausable that jewell could be a mis-spelling of jewel, especially to somebody who does not speak English as their native language. Because of this, both my and your addition to Jewell are valid.

Thanks for your time. If you would like to ask me anything else, either about the Jewell article or anything else on Wikipedia, please drop me another message on my talk page. Finally, it is generally accepted that Wikipedians should sign their name and date on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), and not just their name. -- gtdp (T)/(C) 23:59, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Episcopal Church[edit]

I see you have been heroically fixing a number of links and redirects related to Anglicanism.

  1. I agree with most of them, but I reverted 2 or 3 redirects; my explanation is at Talk:Episcopal#Why Episcopal needs disambiguation
  2. These fixes may turn out to be never-ending task. Please comment on my move proposal at Talk:Episcopal Church#Proposed move, as I think that would help a lot.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Willienilecd.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Willienilecd.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. This is an automated message from BJBot 06:11, 27 January 2007 (UTC)


Jeeny Lou Carson.[edit]

Sorry for getting back to you so late; you were right about Jenny Lou Carson's origin. At the time, I was just adding infoboxes to articles that needed them and I didn't pay enough attention. My mistake. I've removed the origin. Acalamari 19:13, 1 June 2007 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Willie Nile Streets of NY.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Willie Nile Streets of NY.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 03:24, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Hello BuffaloBob, I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck. Acalamari 19:47, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Acalamari, I will use it with care. BuffaloBob (talk) 00:15, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
You're welcome! :) Acalamari 00:36, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

My Yiddishe Momme[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of My Yiddishe Momme, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: My Yidishe Mama. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 01:18, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi. In relation to this message, when moving an article to a different title, it is preferred that you not copy and paste the article. (This is because the article history is then missing.) Instead, move it as described by Wikipedia:How to move a page. Thanks for your work here. :-) --Iamunknown 19:19, 27 November 2008 (UTC)


Lew Pollack[edit]

Oops, I did, didn't I? I've been running through all the songwriter/composer/lyricist cats and must have added this by mistake. Some people are separated into composers and lyricists for the same song, some have 2 cats because they contributed lyrics to some songs and music to a bunch of other songs. A couple have three cats. Very confusing, especially when the article is silent on who contributed what. In the case of Lew there's only 4 articles for songs he has written, do I move/create a category "Songs written by Lew Pollack" or do I create a second cat for "Songs with music by Lew Pollack"? I don't know, but feel it would be overcategorization. In the meanwhile, please feel free to move the song out of the cat - it is patently wrong at the moment. Regards. --Richhoncho (talk) 15:33, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for further note. I agree with you that there were "composers" and "lyricists" in the time of Pollack, in fact modern songwriting contracts still refer to both parts of a song separately. Curiously, Category:Songs by composer was deleted a couple of years ago, only to be recreated a month later. However, I can't see any value in having a category with one song in it, which is what you are proposing. Also, if you separate songs like this you could finish up categorizing songs by lyricist, composer, and "we just don't know," together with this, separating the two cats would diminish, say, Lew Pollack's contribution in total. Obviously, when known, the song will clarify, and there is no reason why a short piece of text can't be inserted into the cat for clarificaton. Just my thoughts. --Richhoncho (talk) 16:12, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Merge/separation of different versions of the same song.[edit]

As somebody who appears to be interested in song articles you might be interested to know there is a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Songs/coverversions with the purpose of trying to establish a standard rule for merge/separation of different versions of the same song. You are invited to comment. Regards, --Richhoncho (talk) 02:21, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Even the English versions are differ each from the other. In Hungarian I could hear three different versions (in different meaning) and a Gipsy music version ZJ (talk) 21:18, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: Willie Nile[edit]

Hi - sorry, I don't get what that page has to do with my edits. --RobHutten (talk) 15:54, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi - thanks for the reply. I base my edits on the standards defined by the wikipedia community, not by the common practices of other contributors. I can't fix all peacock language in every article so what happened on that other page is of no relevance to me. Cheers, RobHutten (talk) 14:29, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:2010 Winter Olympic Medal Table[edit]

It's not needed because we have a link to the official medal table. Just about every sports or news website has their own Olympic medal table, so why use one over the other?-- Scorpion0422 03:00, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

1971 Macon baseball team[edit]

There's an article in Sports Illustrated about Lynn Sweet and the 1971 team. If I get some time this weekend, I may put a blurb about this into the Meridian article. Figured you'd like to have a look. It's a long read, but well worth it. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1171199/1/index.htm BLGM5 (talk) 12:59, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Let Me Go, Lover[edit]

WP:SONGCOVER says that cover versions should not be listed unless they have some form of notability. I have restored mention of the Hank Snow version, complete with a source, since Snow's rendition went to #1 on the country charts in 1954-55, but most of the others don't seem to be notable enough. If you can find sources proving that any other artist's rendition of that song charted, then that would be fine as long as the artist has an article. (Whitburn shows that Karen Kelly's version got to #75, but I can't find any info on her at all besides that, so I don't think she's notable or worth a mention.)

Disambiguation link notification for February 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Are You from Dixie ('Cause I'm from Dixie Too), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page George Cobb (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

RfD[edit]

Hello, please note that "RfD" does not mean "request for deletion". It is the page for handling redirects for deletion. You're looking for WP:AfD -- "Articles for Deletion". Please follow the instructions there on how to nominate an article for deletion, instead of using RfD on Aaron Jack. If you remember VfD, then the page WP:VfD or WP:Votes for deletion will still lead you to the correct place to list articles for deletion. -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 05:35, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Buffalo, the discussion of Aaron Jack is now at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Aaron Jack. Ego White Tray (talk) 21:12, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Third Opinion request[edit]

You recently attempted to make a 3O request by listing it at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution requests/Third Opinion, but unfortunately that's just a referral page, not a listing page.
