Indian philately[edit]

Hi and welcome to Wikipedia! I see you have some interest in stamps; you may want to take a look at postage stamps and postal history of India, fill out my feeble effort from over a year ago - needs more pics to illustrate the eras, plus all the different states. Stan 17:09, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hi Stan,
Glad you pointed that page out, it's got a lot of interesting stuff. I love the nice scans of the stamps you have there, photographing stamps isn't half as good.
I know you've said that recent Indian stamps are of low quality and collectors don't usually care for them - but, fwiw I have a small collection (a few hundred stamps) of new mostly unmarked Indian stamps & first day covers released between 1983 and the early 90s. I find many of them remarkably colorful, unusually huge and some of them are double stamps (art extending onto more than one stamp), triangular stamps or otherwise uniquely shaped. Naturally, none of them saw much use on regular mail. If you'd like pics of any of them for the history page, I could possibly shoot them on a high quality digicam as best as I can (I don't own a scanner). I really don't know a whole lot about philately; I lost interest as an early teen. --Cheeni 20:07, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Looking at the article again, I think the "quality" knock is too sweeping - the era of muddy lithographs is really just 1950s-60s. I'll fix the article unless you want to. Don't worry about digicam photos, too hard to get details in. As you can see from clicking on images in User:Stan Shebs/Gallery/Philately, high resolution gives the reader a "virtual magnifying glass" - very useful when someone is halfway around the world and wants to examine a stamp closely without having one in hand! Stan 21:13, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I'd prefer you fix it, I'm sure you'd be able to add more background on the muddy lithographs. I agree digicam photos are not in the same league as scanned images. See [1] --Cheeni 21:23, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Image:Shoukadou bentou.jpg[edit]

Hi! Thanks for uploading Image:Shoukadou bentou.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much, – Quadell (talk) (help) 14:09, Jan 21, 2005 (UTC)

I have to second this request - you took these pictures, posted them on wikipedia and intended them to be used in the Carnegie Mellon article, and now they want to remove them. Could you change the licensing so they can stay? --Matt 16:40, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:MNIC prototype.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MNIC prototype.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Proposed deletion of OpenACS[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article OpenACS, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

no calm of notability seems to be using wp for free advertisement for product.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. 16x9 (talk) 19:22, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

European Union Directive on Data Protection of 1995[edit]

I am trying to understand what relationship exists, if any, between the various restructurings in the U.S. and Great Britain, which resulted in the merger of two Consumer Data Collection Companies, Experian in the US and Great Universal Stores in Britain, and the sequelia in Europe and the U.S. resulting from the EU directive on Data Protection in 1995.

The most observable financial result was that Bain Capital made a 300% profit on a $100 million investment in what amounted to a 2-3 month period of investment. The operational result was the merger of two gigantic consumer data base companies, whose combined data was presumably then subject to the lesser of the restrictions from Great Britain and/or the U.S.

Serendipity is a wonderful thing, but this boggles the mind.
