a heads-up on the List of Guantanamo Bay detainees[edit]

Greetings,

Since you voted to keep the article List of Guantanamo Bay detainees I thought I would give you a "heads-up". A copyright violation was filed against the article, on October 11th. It was filed by someone who had voted to delete the article on October 5th.

I believe that the copyright violation is entirely bogus. I believe it is bogus because, as explained in Feist Publications v. Rural Telephone Service, lists of facts, like lists of names, cannot be copyright. This Feist v. Rural case went all the way to the US Supreme Court, which made the possibly counter-intuitive ruling that the amount of effort someone put in to compiling a list plays no role in determining whether that list is eligible for copyright protection.

Even if alphabetic lists of names could be copyright, I believe the wikipedia list would not be violating copyright since the list was compiled from various sources.

Yes, I have considered that this user invoked a bogus copyright violation to achieve a result that failed in the {AfD}. Yes, I asked them to terminate the copyright violation process, in light of Feist v Rural. They declined. The backlog in the administrators dealing with copyright violations seems to be on the order of a month long.

Anyhow, I wanted the people who had shown interest in the article to not freak out, or feel betrayed, by seeing the copyright violation tag. -- Geo Swan 11:36, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Transportation in NYC[edit]

Hello Decumanus - I notice you're a member of WikiProject New York City. Have a look at the Transportation in New York City sub article. It tells a fascinating story and it's been nominated to be a US Collaboration of the Week after lots of work over the last few weeks. Check it out and if you like it, please vote for it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:USCOTW We need all the votes we can get! Wv235 04:15, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Owyhee[edit]

Hey. I see you've started 2 articles w/ "Owyhee" in their names... I don't really know what your interest is, but in case it runs really deep, I collected a bunch of things named "Owyhee" and put them all together on the {{disambig}} at Owyhee (formerly a redirect to Owyhee, Nevada). If you're interested or up for a challenge, have at it. :-) Tomertalk 20:13, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:DSCN9633 colofeedandgrain e.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:DSCN9633 colofeedandgrain e.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then 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 media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too.

Image copyright problem with Image:DSCN4848 upchuckstroutcreekmi e.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DSCN4848 upchuckstroutcreekmi e.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you. Longhair 04:52, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Peer review request for New York City[edit]

Hello Decumanus - Since you're a member of the WikiProject NYC, you've been selected to participate in the peer review of the New York City article. It has changed substantially since its last feature article nomination, with additional information on environmental issues, demographics, public schools, transportation, and more. With some editing for concision (making the "skyline" section a daughter article on NYC architecture instead of including it in the main article, for instance), this article should be ready for feature status renomination. Your input would be much appreciated. Wv235 16:54, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Six Run Creek[edit]

I was random page hopping and landed on Six Run Creek. Could you take a look at the first sentence and clarify its meaning? "Six Run Creek is a tributary of the Black River, approximately 50 miles (80 km), in south-eastern North Carolina in the United States." I think there's a word missing after "50 miles (80 km)". Is 50 miles its length? Or is that where it meets with the Black River? Or... something else entirely? Thanks :) Chris (talk) 06:46, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Simply linking back to your user page does not establish the source for the image. --Hetar 19:18, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your interest in the image, and in the issue of copyright. The image belongs to me, as I created from public domain sources. Hence the copyright in my name, which links to my user page. I have uploaded and contributed many of my own created images, as well as to the Commons, many based on public domain sources. The image in question is not located anywhere else on the Internet. I have had no problem with any other up until this point which this practice. If there has been a shift in copyright verification policy, then please elaborate exactly what the new policy is, and how it differs from the old one that I have practiced. Of course, you're welcome to take the issue to the appropriate place in Wikipedia for arbitration. I don't participate actively much in Wikipedia anymore, only occassionally, so I probably am not going to wage a big campaign to defend the image, if it comes to that. Best wishes. -- Decumanus 19:54, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Well since you finally asked the correct question (although not very politely), I'll tell you that don't rememember where it came from, other than a public domain NASA source, as indicated by the file title. I agree a link there would be good and proper, but I have since moved several times and it would probably take a lot of research to track it down, given my life circumstances right now. The policy to which you referrred was either not in effect or was not enforced at the time of my uploads, so in a sense you are applying this rule ex post facto, which is OK (and often necessary) but smacks of immaturity on your part. What I told you about the source is all I can tell you off the top of my head, and all that I will tell you for the time being. Personally I find it amusing that you are choosing to spend all this energy as a relative newcomer to attack my contributions and making these blustery demands of me, given how little content you've actually contributed (side note of advice: experienced users can see right through the "Hey, I'll pump up my contribution count by nominating and voting on things for deletion and earn the attention and respect of the community" strategy). I furthermore find it odd that you haven't nominated any of my many other images for deletion, including the ones based on this same underlying public domain image. There are several hundred for which I probably can't supply the source at this point without a bunch of work which is not my priority now. I can probably do so over time, but certainly not in the next week. You're welcome to add "based on a public domain source courtesy of NASA" to the image pages if you'd like (if you're in a mood to be truly helpful as an editor). Otherwise I sincerely suggest you nominate *all* my images as possibly unfree. I had been planning to move them to Commons longterm anyway (Just for fun, you should try this same kind of demanding deletionist behavior over there and see what happens...). In the meantime you can pat yourself on the back for freeing Wikipedia from the scourge of my uploads. I simply don't understand what would have been so hard about dropping me a polite inquiry note on my user talk page about this without going halfcocked on a deletionist crusade (isn't this the second ever image ever you have nominated?). You have (in my opinion) a lot to learn about Wikipedia and how things work here. I look forward to commenting on this in your future inevitable adminiship nominaton, especially that part about wanting to speedy delete the image. Best wishes and so long.  :) -- Decumanus 21:20, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

I have asked where the image came from multiple times, I'm not sure how you missed that statement.
  1. I originally tagged this image for speedy deletion as no source was provided. The uploader removed the tag without providing the source for the image (instead he simply provided a link to his user page). --Hetar 19:20, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  2. Again, a simple explanation of the image's source would be sufficient to determine its copyright status. --Hetar 22:52, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  3. I am simply asking where the image came from. WP:IUP states that you should, "fully describe images' sources and copyright details." --Hetar 20:31, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
Why have I not tagged all your other images for deletion? Because I'm not going to stalk you, and I find it odd that you would suggest this option. I simply ran across the image on the Wind Rivers article, and tagged it as missing a source. Again, I'm not on any type of deletionist crusade, I simply responded to a lack of information. If you had responded with the truth the first time, ie "I don't remember the exact source except for it probably was a public domain Nasa image." instead of "I own the copyright" this whole mess could have been avoided. Furthermore your threat at sabotoging any future attempts I might have at "administrator" status (which have long ago been stamped out) smacks of an immature temper tantrum.
Why so glum? People here are forgiving usually. I've seen a lot worse users get second, third, and fourth, etc. chances. -- 03:40, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
I have changed the images license tag to match accordingly, and delisted it from WP:PUI. Thanks for providing the source. --Hetar 22:18, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
You're welcome! -- Decumanus 03:23, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
But I did not give you permission to change the copyright to public domain for the image. Alterations on a public domain image belong to the alterer, by copyright law, and you have no legal right to remove that (the public domain is not the GFDL: it doesn't "carry over" to alterations). This may seem trivial for such a small alteration in this but most of my work involves much greater alterations (Missoula Floods and Virgin River for example). I would very much appreciate it if you consult me before underlying removing copyright on my own creative works. If someone wants to download the Wind River image, cut out my alterations, and use the public domain part, that is their right of course, but from my understanding, even NASA does not have a right to use the original alterations without my permission. That being said, I would like to eventually PD them all, but when I do so is my choice, not yours. -- Decumanus 03:34, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

You know, you need the Amish people's permission to take pictures of them. SarazynTALKDE 16:46, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Asking permission to photography Amish people is polite, it is respectful, it is not a legal requirement. I suspect the concern here centers on the Amish belief that being photographed may make them tempted by pride. Amish people are often photographed without permission, and not as traumitized as members of some Oceania and Amazon peoples that believe to photograph them is to take away some of their life force, or even their souls. That is a far more traumatic situation, and there is quite a lot written about this. CApitol3

Missing image Image:Wpdms terra governorsisland.jpg[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Wpdms terra governorsisland.jpg, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Wpdms terra governorsisland.jpg is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:Wpdms terra governorsisland.jpg, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Image source problem with Image:Wpdms_nasa_topo_cheyenne_river.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Wpdms_nasa_topo_cheyenne_river.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.

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 uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 17:51, 2 November 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -Nard 17:51, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4.

Speedy deletion nomination of Vermaport[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Vermaport, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

NYC Meetup: Saturday, December 4[edit]

We meet outside by the trees at 5:00 PM.

Our next Wikipedia NYC Meetup is this weekend on Saturday Dec 4 at Brooklyn Museum during their awesome First Saturdays program, starting at 5 PM.

A particular highlight for the wiki crowd will be 'Seductive Subversion: Women Pop Artists, 1958–1968', and the accompanying "WikiPop" project, with specially-created Wikipedia articles on the artists displayed on iPads in the gallery.

This will be a museum touring and partying meetup, so no excuses about being a shy newbie this time. Bring a friend too!

Fair use rationale for File:Blanket Stories sculpture.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Blanket Stories sculpture.JPG. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. 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. J Milburn (talk) 11:31, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Wpdms DSCN1562e crane.JPG[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Wpdms DSCN1562e crane.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F10 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a file that is not an image, sound file or video clip (e.g. a Word document or PDF file) that has no encyclopedic use.

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, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

File:Matthew Trump.JPG missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Matthew Trump.JPG is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

National Archives ExtravaSCANza[edit]

You are invited to the National Archives ExtravaSCANza, taking place every day next week from January 4–7, Wednesday to Saturday, in College Park, Maryland (Washington, DC metro area). Come help me cap off my stint as Wikipedian in Residence at the National Archives with one last success!

This will be a casual working event in which Wikipedians are getting together to scan interesting documents at the National Archives related to a different theme each day—currently: spaceflight, women's suffrage, Chile, and battleships—for use on Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. The event is being held on multiple days, and in the evenings and weekend, so that as many locals and out-of-towners from nearby regions1 as possible can come. Please join us!

1 Wikipedians from DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newark, New York City, and Pittsburgh have been invited.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.
