Proposed deletion of Blu-ray Region Code[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Blu-ray Region Code has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Content fork: All information in this article already exists verbatim at Blu-ray Disc#Region codes

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Forteblast (talk) 21:43, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Your move of Bing and related pages[edit]

Hi there Chris1294. I noticed these moves on my watchlist, and I've commented on them at Talk:Bing (Disambiguation), but I wanted to ask you to please not perform page moves the way that you did here. The multiple moves make a mess that has to be cleaned up, and also creates a mess in the page history. If you can't make a page move because of technical limitations, the correct thing to do is ask at Wikipedia:Requested moves, and an administrator will perform the move if it's reasonable to do so. In this case, however, there's a long dispute about how the various Bing pages should be organized, so they shouldn't be moved at all without prior discussion. You can read the talk page I linked for more on the dispute, or if you have any questions, you can ask me here and I'll see them and try to answer. Thanks for reading.

Thunderbrew[edit]

Hi there Chris1294, and welcome to Wikipedia! Unfortunately, I have marked a page you recently created, Thunderbrew to be deleted from Wikipedia because of Wikipedia's policies. These policies state that to have a Wikipedia article, the subject of article needs to be significant or important. There is more information regarding this at Wikipedia:NN and Wikipedia:CSD. In general, the subject is considered important/notable if it has had "coverage in multiple reliable sources" (such as an article in a newspaper, or a book). Note that even if your page subject is not considered important at the moment, it may be in the future. If you think that the subject is important right now, then you may contest deletion. To do so, edit the page, and then place the text "{{hangon}}" on the second line, then go to the "talk page" of the article (get to this by pressing the "discussion" tab while at the article, or click here), and edit there explaining why you think the page subject is important according to WP:NN. If you have questions, comments, or another message for me, please feel free to contact me. Best, - Kingpin13 (talk) 15:49, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Xfinity Logo 300.jpg.jpeg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Xfinity Logo 300.jpg.jpeg. 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.

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 will not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used once again.
  • If you recieved this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.

File permission problem with File:74303 10150104574304018 71279079017 7376823 5692375 n.jpg.jpeg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:74303 10150104574304018 71279079017 7376823 5692375 n.jpg.jpeg. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file'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 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:28, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Xfinity Streampix[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 Xfinity Streampix 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 web content, 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 this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to 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 tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't 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. Cntras (talk) 01:59, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Xfinity Streampix[edit]

Hi Chris1294, you recently removed a deletion tag from Xfinity Streampix. Because Wikipedia policy does not allow the creator of the page to remove speedy deletion tags, an automated program has replaced the tag. Although the deletion proposal may be incorrect, removing the tag is not the correct way for you to contest the deletion, even if you are more experienced than the nominator. Instead, please use the talk page to explain why the page should not be deleted. Remember to be patient, there is no harm in waiting for another experienced user to review the deletion and judge what the right course of action is. As you are involved, and therefore potentially biased, you should refrain from doing this yourself. Thank you, - SDPatrolBot (talk) 02:02, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Xfinity Streampix, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages ABC and Amazon (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.

Blanking[edit]

Please do not blank pages, as you did to NBCSN on NBC, whatever the reason. Somebody will come to Wikipedia, find a blank page and wonder what on earth is going on. If an article is a duplicate of another, then redirect it. If you feel that an article doesn't belong on Wikipedia, then look at the deletion policy. If it indeed meets the criteria for deletion in your judgement, then nominate it as appropriate. Thank you. — Smjg (talk) 23:54, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Fox Sports[edit]

Hello. Please note that per a previous discussion on Talk:Fox Sports (United States)#Requested move, the main Fox Sports page should be left as a Disambiguation page -- NOT a redirect to, or cut-and-paste move of, Fox Sports (United States). I also reverted your page move back from Fox Sports (Worldwide) because it essentially results in an "unnecessary disambiguation" title -- that is a title X that redirects to a disambiguation page with a more complex title X (Y)

If you note in that previous discussion that I personally was opposed to this current consensus, but was overruled by a number of Australian editors who watch Fox Sports (Australia) and feel that there should be NO primary topic.

Also, I have noticed that you have also been previously warned above about blanking pages and attempting cut-and-paste moves. Again, please follow Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, or you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Thank you for your cooperation. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:29, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

I have reverted some of the redirects you changed regarding Fox Sports. It's not usually appropriate to change one redirect to another - if a new topic arises, usually a disambiguation page is needed.

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Style Network a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Esquire Network. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Additionally, this is being discussed at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Style Network/Esquire Network pagemove question. --64.85.214.181 (talk) 17:21, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Verbage regarding "SD feed downgraded to 16x9"[edit]

Hi Chris, I noticed your edits regarding formats on several cable channels. While I agree that the info needs correcting, I think the standard sentence you're using can be confusing at best, and inaccurate from a technical point of view. Saying "SDTV feed downgraded to 16:9 480i" has a couple of problems. First, it's the HD feed that's being downgraded so that it can be seen on an SD television. In the TV community it's actually called "downconverting" although "downgraded" is probably more descriptive and a better word for the average reader, so I'd leave that alone. Saying 16:9 is also a little misleading - what the signal becomes is actually a "letterboxed 480i" signal.

I corrected one of these that I noticed by chance, and rather than go through and do the rest myself without consulting you, here's what I propose:

"(HD feed downgraded to letterboxed 480i for SD sets)"

Let me know what you think of that. Thanks! Rockypedia (talk) 01:25, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
