Welcome to MY talk page.
House Rules
  1. I may or may not respond to a post you make here on this page.
  2. If I revert or remove your post from my page, it could be that I do not find the discussion germane to me, I will try to respond, but if I don't, you will survive, I'm sure. Alternately it could be that I find something in the posting to be preachy or pedantic, in which case I will simply revert or remove your post. I am busy living my life, and if I hit one button rather than another, on my own talk page, not some vandal, and really don't need to be roasted. I'm often very close to being in trouble, but jerks need to be called out. Whiny editors threaten with "I'll get your x taken away" or "you'll never make admin"... Take note - if I wanted that I would already be one. In the words of Jimbo Wales, I'm a good contributor, and so cutting me some slack is a very reasonable thing to do.
  3. This is not your talk page, this is my talk page, and I do not allow edit wars on here. If you are a legal positivist, if the "rules" of Wikipedia in your mind overrule respect for the privacy and pages of others, you have your own talkpage which is your own playground to do exactly what you wish. This is not it, and you are not welcome to it.
  4. Friends and colleagues are most welcome, and none of the above is meant for you..

Effective immediately, any visitor to this talk page may delete any "Image rationale" bot notification at will (specifically any and all messages from Betacommandbot and related bots), once they have dealt with the warning. I have no desire to archive them, so they may be deleted once addressed.

Federal Office of Police[edit]

What part of WP:NAME are you referring to in this edit summary? It is my understanding that bracketed titles are for disambiguation purposes. I.e. you would be justified in moving Federal Office of Police to Federal Office of Police (Swiss) (not Federal Police (Swiss)) if (and only if) Federal Office of Police was made into a disambiguation page at the same time, referencing other entities called Federal Office of Police. --dab (��) 17:04, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Wars_in_A_Song_of_Ice_and_Fire[edit]

An article you recently edited Wars_in_A_Song_of_Ice_and_Fire has been nominated for deletion. [1] -- The Red Pen of Doom 20:00, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

"This world is an uncertain realm, filled with danger. Honor undermined by the pursuit of power, freedom sacrificed when the weak are oppressed by the strong. But there are those who oppose these powerful forces, who dedicate their lives to truth, honor, and freedom..."

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

Please see Duplicate categorization rule[edit]

Doesn't it seem odd that under Category:Motorcycle manufacturers, you don't see Harley-Davidson or Kawasaki or any other name except (at the moment) Jawa Motors? Why would Jawa be categorized differently than hundreds of other motorcycle makers?

Please see Wikipedia:DUPCAT#Duplicate_categorization_rule. Category:Motorcycle manufacturers of Czechoslovakia is a member of Category:Motorcycle manufacturers by country and that is a member of Category:Motorcycle manufacturers. --Dbratland (talk) 18:53, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes it does seem odd.--Degen Earthfast (talk) 05:22, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Another False alert due to WP mirror[edit]

Removed This alert happened when I was doing an article split-out. The "source" is a WP mirror or cut-and-paste of the article I was splitting out from. --Degen Earthfast (talk) 17:04, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Please make sure that you follow the advice at Wikipedia:Splitting when splitting articles. Specifically, you didn't note in the edit history of this article that the content was being copied (you have to do this for copyright reasons). Hut 8.5 19:47, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

About PRCS[edit]

Hi there. You added some information to the article on the Palestine Red Crescent Society that I believe requires some clarification. I have asked for some on the talk page there. While searching for the sources you used, I noticed the same information at Emergency Medical Services in Israel (which you also added - verbatim). I have removed that latter addition (its a copyright violation when not attributed to your earlier edit and as it requires clarification where you first added it, I would appreciate you do that first before re-adding it elsewhere). Waiting for your comments at the talk page. Thanks. Tiamuttalk 20:36, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for providing the link to the report Degen Earthfast. In case you did not notice, the speaker/author of that section iis the Israeli Ministry of Health and not the WHO itself. So when you added the information as though it were the WHO speaking, that was slightly misleading. As such, I've removed that. I also removed it because a 2003 report cannot counter a 2009 report. Thanks again for providing your source. Happy editing. Tiamuttalk 19:33, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
It is not the WHO sepaking. That part of the report is by the ISraeli Minisry of Health. Its clear as day. Please self-revert. Tiamuttalk 07:47, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Reparto volanti[edit]

Hello there! I tagged your article Reparto volanti as needing translation to English. There is actually only one sentence in the opening paragraph written in Italian. I would fix it myself but I don't know enough Italian to order spaghetti. Cheers! Ivanvector (talk) 22:43, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Looks like another user already fixed the sentence. No worries about the edit on my userpage, thanks for pointing it out and fixing it. Ivanvector (talk) 19:21, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Re: NO APOLOGY ACCEPTED - PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN[edit]

I really like the quotes under this heading on your User Page. One and Two are especially poignant. All true? Any source for these?
I note 4 out of 5 are sticking it to the French, just a little.
Did you hear the one about the US aircraft carrier and the ship that wouldn't give way to them?

Use of talk pages[edit]

Please don't use talk pages as a forum to post off-topic rants about issues, as you did today on Talk:Climatic Research Unit e-mail hacking incident. I suggest you have a look at Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines for some advice on how article talk pages should be used. -- ChrisO (talk) 01:25, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Copyright problem: Windhoeker Maschinenfabrik[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Windhoeker Maschinenfabrik, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material.

While the blanked section is not a word-for-word copy of the source, it is a close paraphrase and needs to be rewritten in your own words. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 00:15, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Gaza aid shipment[edit]

Hi Degen,

You just removed the bit "without naming Israel" from the international reaction section.

As per the discussion page this was included to maintain neutrality since the UN specifically changed its wording to not mention Israel. But you have a good point.

How about "without placing blame on either party involved"?

That seems more neutral to me anyway ... what do you think?

Zuchinni one (talk) 15:30, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for getting back to me. I think that given the violence on both sides it helps to clarify the UN's position. But I'm also open to other ways of wording it.

In either case I'll leave it up to you to edit as you see fit. Zuchinni one (talk) 15:41, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

OK :) Zuchinni one (talk) 15:48, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of AirQuest Aviation[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on AirQuest Aviation 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 an organization or company, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. 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. ttonyb (talk) 16:02, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

June 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from pages you have created yourself, as you did with AirQuest Aviation. Please use the {{hangon}} template on the page instead if you disagree with the deletion, and make your case on the page's talk page. Thank you. ttonyb (talk) 23:19, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Atlantis Rising (book)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Atlantis Rising (book) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:BK notability guideline.

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. ScienceApologist (talk) 22:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Atlantis Rising (book)[edit]

I have nominated Atlantis Rising (book), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Atlantis Rising (book). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Lamborghini[edit]

Hi - how are you? I have a curiosity about the domain e-lamborghini.com. What was the website used for? Selling cars or lamborghini-related merchandise? Dawnseeker2000 17:10, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

OK I see. Now that I understand that part I'm thinking of a better way to source this dead website. Thanks for making sense of this for me. Dawnseeker2000 17:20, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

History of the Volkspolizei[edit]

I hope you are are that the article was an entire copy-paste from Volkspolizei which should be corrected according to Wikipedia:Splitting. I removed the history section on the latter, but please be sure to template the articles. —Mikemoral♪♫ 02:04, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Hino Contessa[edit]

I noticed your link on the Hino Contessa got reverted in the Corvair article, and I re-included the car in the body of the text along with other rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout cars — linking to the Hino Motors History section, which mentions the Contessa. I'm thinking the Contessa might warrant a full article and wonder if you might be interested in persuing that? 842U (talk) 13:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

List of bicycle manufacturing companies[edit]

Thanks for finding all those articles that were not list. You may want to avoid, however, adding companies that do not yet have articles, so that your work is not simply undone. -AndrewDressel (talk) 18:19, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:NEXT.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:NEXT.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Main page Talk comment.[edit]

Here. What a strange thing to say. 72.10 was clearly referring to the discrepancy between popular votes and electoral college votes, not the unpleasantness in Florida. This happened previously in 1876, and 1888. I don't know if Samuel J. Tilden "conceded" or not, but it doesn't matter, Rutherford B. Hayes won the election even though everyone agrees that Tilden got more votes. APL (talk) 17:54, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Your recent edit to the Terex article (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Terex&diff=402373151&oldid=396516999) does not cite any sources. Please add citations to support your edit. Thanks. Ch Th Jo (talk) 20:27, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Embraer ERJ 145 family a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. 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.

Orphaned non-free image File:ProneBicycleCompanyLogo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:ProneBicycleCompanyLogo.jpg. 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 03:48, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi Degen. Will you please review "What Schiff and Yaari say about the run-up to invasion of Lebanon" section on Talk:1982 Lebanon War? Unless I've missed something, one of your recent edits to that article seems to be directly contradicted by the source it's cited to. You can reply here, if you like, since I've temporarily watchlisted this page, but I'd prefer it if we could keep the discussion on article talk, instead. Thanks,  – OhioStandard (talk) 20:40, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Hercules[edit]

I have blanked your efforts at Hercules Fahrrad GmbH & Co and reverted your blank/redirect at Hercules (motorcycle). There are two reasons for this. Firstly, if you want to rename an article you don't blank it, you move it. It is critical to maintain Wikipedia's licensing that edit history is preserved. Secondly your edits to Hercules Fahrrad GmbH & Co seemed to be a direct copy/paste from a google translation of the German Wikipedia article. If you look at Wikipedia:Translation you will see the key point, highlighted in bold that "an unedited machine translation, left as a Wikipedia article, is worse than nothing" and furthermore that proper credit must be given to the original version to avoid copyright infringement. So, if you do want to include elements from the German article, then by all means do but add them to the existing article, finish the machine translation by removing any grammatical howlers, and give proper credit to the German version. --Biker Biker (talk) 08:06, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Ripstik, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. What you did at Ripstik ‎was definitely not a minor edit.

Speedy deletion nomination of Hercules Fahrrad GmbH & Co[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 Hercules Fahrrad GmbH & Co requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). 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 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. Biker Biker (talk) 11:13, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Certainly, you can translate articles from one project to another, but since the originals are not public domain, there are attribution issues necessary to avoid creating copyright problems. Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia explains what to do. It seems, though, that there may be consensus against dropping in unmodified machine translations at Wikipedia:Translation. You'll need to work through that issue if you wish to continue with translating content. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:27, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Use of non-free image File:Saigon-hubert-van-es.jpg on Hubert van Es[edit]

The non-free image File:Saigon-hubert-van-es.jpg was recently restored to Hubert van Es by you after it have been removed for failure of our non-free content criteria policy, specifically item #10c which requires a "separate, specific non-free use rationale for each use of the item". The image still fails the 10c policy requirement and has been removed from the article again. Please do not restore this image to that article again without complying with the requirements of that policy. For more information on how to write an appropriate non-free use rationale, please consult Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline. If you have questions about this, please ask.

Orphaned non-free image File:Razor logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Razor logo.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.

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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.  Aaditya 7 05:56, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Red Link Recovery[edit]

Hello. As a Italian-speaking WikiGnome, I'd like to solicit your help in testing a new tool. For a few years now, the Red Link Recovery Project has been using the Red Link Recovery Live tool to track down and fix unnecessarily red links in articles. Recently, the tool has been expanded to work on non-English Wikipedias. A small set of suggested fixes for red-links on the Italian-language Wikipedia have been prepared and I'm hoping to interest some Italian-language speakers (such as yourself) to work through them.

If you are interested, please visit http://toolserver.org/~tb/RLRL/quick.php?lang=it. Each time you refresh the page you'll be presented with three new suggested fixes. I'll be happy to answer any questions on the tools talk page. - TB (talk) 20:05, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Philadelphia photo requests[edit]

Caravan (Israel)[edit]

Hi. Why did you suddenly redirect this page without asking for consensus on the talk page? Yoninah (talk) 18:12, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

I understand your rationale. However, in Hebrew, caravanim is plural. Israelis call a single unit a caravan. Yoninah (talk) 20:52, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
And thus our cunundrum. I believe that Caravanim will help keep it clear. DE--Degen Earthfast (talk) 21:42, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad you used the word "our". This page move should really be discussed on the talk page to gain consensus. Other interested editors who were involved in the deletion discussion in 2008, when the page was originally named Caravanim, should also be invited to weigh in.
BTW when you blanked and repasted the page, you deleted the entire page history. This is not how moves should be done. Yoninah (talk) 08:04, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ha'argaz[edit]

A tag has been placed on Ha'argaz, 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 encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can 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 a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not 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. Holy Pits! (talk) 19:51, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Biting Newbies[edit]

Hi, I am currently teaching a new user how to edit (we happen to be staying in the same place right now). I'm not entirely sure what you mean by 'setting up his account', but it would seem the mistakes of a very new user do not in any way constitute vandalism. It would be appropriate for someone of your standing to assume good faith and ensure that new users are welcome.

Having said that, if you wish to open a sock-puppet investigation (which you are, of course, welcome to do), please do inform me and I will provide the relevant documents and proofs to CheckUsers or Arbcom as is appropriate. It would be nice of you to apologise to the user in question as they have done nothing more than make a newbie mistake. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 22:50, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

User talk:Mrdrums43 concern[edit]

Why would you report this user for abuse when they haven't committed serious vandalism? I believe the G11 tag for Ha'argaz was possibly a good faith newbie mistake, not vandalism. Additionally, I'm not seeing anything that would warrant a CheckUser. SwisterTwister talk 01:17, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Co-dominion[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Co-dominion has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Colombian National Police Carabineros Badge.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Colombian National Police Carabineros Badge.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can 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 a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Ocelot Auto[edit]

You can't just override an AfD decision because you disagree with it. Consensus was reached that this company is non-notable, and the article you restored still has no reliable sources.

"Wikipedia is not a democracy" doesn't mean "screw consensus and I can do whatever I want". You don't seem to have even contacted the admin who closed the AfD, which would be the right action here (WP:CLOSEAFD).

Its "official name" was never "FSB Alfa Group". Actually, it was ever officially "Alfa" only during the early 1990s when it was a GUO special force. It's a popular name, like "Delta Force". And "Alpha Group" is much more popular in English than "Alfa Group", and it's NEVER "FSB Alfa Group".[3].

We appear to be in conflict over examples of folding bicycles, but perhaps not.

File permission problem with File:British Dunelt 3 speed.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:British Dunelt 3 speed.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for 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}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File 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. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Psychonaut (talk) 09:53, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Tuk-Tuk[edit]

I expect that you'll be performing the massive amount of work required to justify this revert in the near future, i.e. a week or so. Otherwise, this fly-by revert of material merged (through actual effort) over five years ago will be reverted. In future, I expect reverts which are destined to waste my time in reply to be accompanied by a note to my talk. Thanks. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) (talk) 16:19, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Three-wheeler[edit]

We've been through this before, so I'll keep this brief. This was a long and complicated merge, and if you disagree with it then you'll fix it properly. Otherwise I'll shortly be correcting the massive redundancy that you've just created by undoing the redirect at the merged page.
