Fair use rationale for Image:Northsquare.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Northsquare.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.

A tag has been placed on Phil Williams (presenter), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.--Liekmudkipz (talk) 23:32, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Template help request[edit]

Hello. I notice you've helped out with Template:Fc. I was wondering if you could tell me what I've done wrong with Template:Nct, which I've attempted to from adapt from the football club template to work for national cricket teams.

Currently when I use it creates a quote esque area of formatting (see the Qualifying section of this version of ICC World Twenty20.

Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Earl CG (talk) 15:36, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi, it seems to work fine for me. Check out User:Robwingfield/sandbox, where I've used the template both (1) transcluded and (2) substituted. What I have done is remove the underscores from your template... but purely for aesthetic reasons! If you let me know which article you're having problems, and what you're trying to do, I'm happy to help there. robwingfield «TC» 15:44, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

{{0}}[edit]

The {{0}} template is used so the states line up together (ie double and treble digits), rather than allow them to line up with the column titles. Cheers, Mattythewhite (talk) 20:23, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

On Template:0, it states: "It is used for padding statistics and other numbers in table columns so that they line up properly". Mattythewhite (talk) 20:48, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
That your argument is that the template is used for stats lining up with title headers, whereas it is stated it is used so the stats themselves line-up together, as their examples show? Mattythewhite (talk) 08:34, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that; that's certainly the attitude needed toward making progress. I was simply arguing my point as to the function of this template, but if you don't care, then don't worry yourself. Mattythewhite (talk) 10:58, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
We're both getting the feeling we're just repeating ourselves here (which we indeed are). But surely the key point here is the purpose of this template; whether it is used for the lining up of statistics or so the figures are able to line up with the column titles properly. I have always been under the impression it was used so the stats are able to match up, which does of course lead to this data not lining up with the titles aptly. When I look at what must be around 99% of all football player articles, this formatting has been applied and is standard practice (although admittedly this does not necessarily mean it is right). But are other published tables necessarily relevant to this style of table/formatting? When I look at these infoboxes, there certainly is an undeniable misalignment between the data and the titles, but I'm apprehensive as to whether this template is the solution to fixing it; I think that would lie down to the coding of the alignment of the table, perhaps?.

Proposed deletion of Garry Breen[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Garry Breen has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTY. Has not played first-team football in a fully professional league or received significant media coverage.

While all constructive 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
