Limerick Golf Club - Copyvio issues[edit]

Hi. And Welcome. The Limerick Golf Club article appears to be entirely "copied and pasted" from http://www.limerickgolfclub.ie/about.htm. This is wholly inappropriate under WP:COPYVIO. If you can rework the article so that it represents more original content, then please do so immediately. Otherwise I'll have to flag it with Template:Copyvio. And it could very easily be deleted. Sorry. Guliolopez (talk) 15:17, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

I am the Webmaster for Limerick Golf Club and wrote all of the content for the site, so the text is entirely original. Is this acceptable?--Corcs999 (talk) 15:21, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Not that I don't believe you, but do you have anything substantiating to back this up? I should also note that you might want to read WP:COI, and point out that - if you have created this article to either promote the club or the website - you should also read WP:ADVERT. Finally, if indeed you did write the original content (and again, I'm not challenging that you did/didn't), then you should probably read WP:GFDL which is the license under which Wikipedia content is governed. I suggest this because you might want to be sure that the terms of this license are compatible with what you expect for the content published on the LGC.ie website. Cheers. Guliolopez (talk) 15:38, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
If you send an email to webmaster@limerickgolfclub.ie then you will get a reply from me, which would substantiate my claim (if you wish to go to that trouble). The intention of the article is not to promote or advertise anything, merely to provide information on the club. I will read the documents that you suggest. I can certainly change the text so that it reads differently from the Website, but I don't see the point in this. I would intend to add to both over time.--Corcs999 (talk) 15:46, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

RE: Crest. Are you really sure you want to release the Club Crest under CC3.0? You do know that that license means someone could (if they wanted to) "adapt" the crest into some other form? Surely a "Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License" would be better? Surely the club would want to retain more rights to such an important symbol than simply "Attrib"? Beyond that, do you own the rights to release the crest under such a license? Guliolopez (talk) 13:30, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:LibertyStone.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:LibertyStone.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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:LibertyStone.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:LibertyStone.JPG. The copy called Image:LibertyStone.JPG has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account.

Image copyright problem with Image:Cranberries ticket.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Cranberries ticket.jpg. 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 image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sdrtirs (talk) 19:03, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Exclusive use of ash[edit]

Hi. I've changed the 'used exclusively' phrase again, in the common ash article. I believe you will find that 'used exclusively' means that it is used for nothing else. The current wording should indicate the intended meaning though. Cheers, Imc (talk) 22:22, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Limerick FC.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Limerick FC.gif. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

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

This is an automated notice by STBotI. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 14:47, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Nenagh & James Hayes[edit]

I saw you undid a revision to Nenagh re James Hayes. I am inclined to go further and completely delete the entry as I can find no record of him even the website doesn't appear to work. Could you have a look. --09:34, 27 February 2009 (UTC)Gramscis cousinTalkStalk

The site works alright - complete with Fergal Sharkey music - seems to be some sort of self publisher (with a good number of books). The general rule of thumb should be, if a person does not have their own Wikipedia article, then they should not be included in such a list, so this entry should probably be removed. On another note, the Manual of Style recommends that lists should not be included in articles - if you want to take Nenagh to GA then the list would have to go. You could set it up as a seperate list on its own and refer to it from the Nenagh article.--Corcs999 (talk) 15:04, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Gui Logo Web.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Gui Logo Web.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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.

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:LimerickHurlingJersey.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:LimerickHurlingJersey.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. 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: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. 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 created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 22:50, 8 March 2011 (UTC). If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 22:50, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:LimerickUtd_RealMadrid1980.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:LimerickUtd_RealMadrid1980.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 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. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 22:43, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

I have changed that to Public Domain as there is no copyright holder for this. I'm not sure if this is in order or not? If another tag is more appropriate, perhaps you could suggest one? (Corcs999 (talk) 21:33, 14 March 2011 (UTC))

Banagher[edit]

Thanks for your note on my homepage explaining your deletion of the information on townlands, parish and barony which I inserted into the Banagher article. I am doing research on 19th-century history in Ireland, and one often needs to know townlands, civil and CoI and Catholic parishes, and baronies, to work out what is going on where, as these were the normal way of describing location until quite recently. Such information is not easily available, and often requires a good deal of ferreting about in each particular case, such as reference to 19th-century maps. Wikipedia is the obvious source for people working in this area, who are not only specialists but family history researchers as well, and therefore large in number. I would say therefore that it is particularly important for this to be included, and I have been trying to insert it in the articles I come across which do not include it (it does not need to go in the introduction, though it would be nice to generate a common understanding in Irish geographical articles of where it should come). Banagher is particularly problematic, since it sits right on the boundary line between two townlands.

I recognise that you must have put a great deal of effort into the Banagher article and that former geographical references have not been part of your vision of how it should look, and I applaud the current state of the article, which is a notable achievement, but I would urge you to consult the wider interest of users and restore the information you have deleted in a form you regard as suitable. Diomedea Exulans (talk) 11:55, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the new material, which seems to do the trick (I have made a small change on the townlands so as fully to reflect my understanding of the position). The parishes are difficult because things change over time. Certainly at the time of the Griffiths Valuation (1855 for King's County) Reynagh was the name of the civil and CoI parishes (and it was presumably the pre-Reformation parish name); I'm not sure whether or how this could be acknowledged.

Disambiguation link notification for January 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Robert James Graves, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cloghan (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.

Re: Limerick (city)[edit]

The speedy deletion has been declined by another admin. I'm not concerned by this issue; the only reason my name is on the history of the Limerick (city) page is because I did a history merge on it. Graham87 01:20, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
