Fair use images and lack of rationales[edit]

Please stop re-adding fair use images to articles when there is no rationale to do so. I've undone most of your edits, and will undo more most likely later. --Hammersoft (talk) 15:38, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

  • You keep adding [1], and I'll keep removing [2]. There's no rationale for use, and these logos are not the logo of the rivalry anyways. Stop adding them. --Hammersoft (talk) 03:50, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • And again you've done so. You have of course been reverted, and will continue to be reverted every time you conduct such a violation of policy. --Hammersoft (talk) 03:30, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Mets-Phillies rivalry[edit]

Please do not remove content without specifying a reason. The Phillies and Mets logos are in the public domain and are not covered by fair use guidelines. KV5 (TalkPhils) 17:15, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Mlb postseason 2009.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Mlb postseason 2009.png. 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.


Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 04:40, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Copyrighted logos[edit]

You must add a fair use rationale to every copyrighted logo you upload. This is not the same as a "this image is copyrighted" box. I did them for you, like at File:Mlb postseason 2009.png, but you must add these for any new files you upload that are copyrighted.  fetchcomms 18:46, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

October 2010[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Battle of Gonzales has been reverted, as it appears to introduce incorrect information. Please do not intentionally add incorrect information to articles. All information in this encyclopedia must be verifiable in a reliable, published source. If you believe the information that you added was correct, please cite the references or sources or before making the changes, discuss them on the article's talk page. Please use the sandbox for testing. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you. Diannaa (Talk) 06:24, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Information.png The recent edit you made to Intradivisional rivalries in the American Football Conference constitutes vandalism, and has been reverted. Please do not continue to remove content from articles without explanation. Thank you. Diannaa (Talk) 06:36, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Helmet switch[edit]

Personally, I could care less which is used, but just out of curiosity, why are turning the helmets? Also, you should know that with at least one of them, you've not switched the picture, but actually deleted it. 98.82.190.226 (talk) 20:18, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

I see you've fixed it. 98.82.190.226 (talk) 20:21, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Now that you're done, the question remains: Why? 98.82.190.226 (talk) 21:37, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
You're a real talkative fellow, aren't you? 98.82.190.226 (talk) 05:39, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

January 2010[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at I-85 Rivalry, you may be blocked from editing. Your additions of non-free content have routinely ignored WP:NFCC #10c requirements. You've been informed of this several times by myself at User_talk:Charlesaaronthompson#Fair_use_images_and_lack_of_rationales above, and by another editor at User_talk:Charlesaaronthompson#Copyrighted_logos. Persisting in this activity will likely lead to a block of your editing privileges. If you are unclear about any of this, ASK, rather than continue to edit in violation of policy. Thank you, --Hammersoft (talk) 16:36, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history.

Hi, I saw your changes to the Tim Howard article.

Thanks for uploading File:NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Anupmehra -Let's talk! 19:15, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bawitdaba, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nookie. 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.
