Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Seal of Kuantan.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Seal of Kuantan.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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.

Pramuka Garuda[edit]

Hi, can you please translate the phrase "Siaga tata" as it relates to boy scouts? I think it is some kind of cub, but the definitions in Wiktionary for "tata" seemed wrong. Leave me a message on my talk page, and I'll insert the translation where it's needed. Thanks. Cbdorsett (talk) 05:13, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Fortune Global 500[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure who to contact for this, but I thought you'd interested since you're a member of the Economics WikiProject. There is an article called Fortune Global 500. This article is a copy and paste of the list of the 500 largest companies in the world by revenues published by Fortune magazine every year. Fortune magazine lists these companies by countries and cities. They list Shell as being a company from the Netherlands and not a dual company from Britain and the Netherlands (contrary to Unilever). One British Wikipedian doesn't like that and has changed the article, writting that Shell is a dual British/Dutch company, contrary to the source from Fortune magazine. I tried to explain that the article being simply a copy and paste of the Fortune Global 500 list, we have to respect their editorial choices, otherwise it's not the Global Fortune 500 list anymore, it becomes something else. Unfortunately I feel like I'm preaching in the desert, so to speak. If we start changing things from the list based on what we think is right or wrong, then why not also change EADS which Fortune magazine lists as a Dutch company (because it is legally incorporated in the Netherlands for tax reasons), whereas in fact EADS is a Franco-German company with top management in Paris and Munich? As you can see, this could lead to endless changes to the article. I thought on Wikipedia we had to write information that matches with the sources we use. It would be nice to hear from you on this point. Keizuko (talk) 17:11, 2 March 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:NstLogo2005.gif[edit]

This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy.

Image copyright problem with Image:20080302NikNazmi.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:20080302NikNazmi.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. Nilfanion (talk) 21:44, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Ninth Malaysia Plan[edit]

Hi there. I don't know the reason you discard my entry on Ninth Malaysia Plan. Engkamalzack (talk) 05:40, 5 April 2008 (UTC) For your information high oil price and asian financial crisis were mentioned in PM's speech on 31 March 2006. I am also a regular contributor for ms.wikipedia.org. You are welcome to contribute if you can write in Malay. Engkamalzack (talk) 07:09, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Excuse me it is not a suspect but a fact mentioned in PM's speech when tabling the RMK9. You better put in discussion before removing it, it will piss other people. And you don't need to do extensive research to know that oil prices had been on the up trend since US invaded the Iraq in 2003, nor do you need for extensive research to find out that Malaysia indeed was on the path to recover after the Asian Financial Crisis. For heaven's sake, these two factors were singled out in PM's speech on 31 March 2006. And the blueprint was not announced on 1 April, which is one mistake the original contributor did.Engkamalzack (talk) 02:51, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't know why claim that you reverted vandalism (rv edit summary) when to me they appeared to be good faith edits. What exactly was the vandalism? LittleOldMe (talk) 15:36, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your replies answering my concerns. I have just logged in again. Lots of traffic on the article and I don't know enough on the subject to get involved. I trust that consensus will prevail and that a good article will result. Still not sure that I agree with your edit summary though since I don't perceive any malice in the preceding edits and all seem to be good faith. Regards LittleOldMe (talk) 10:06, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Malaysia[edit]

Hi :) I don't understand why the edit on Malaysia was reverted. Honestly, the article are too wordy with overlapping information. South Korea has a fantastic page of its country & reading Malaysia is a little embarassing. Sorry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.54.43.81 (talk) 18:59, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Your edit contains factual inaccuracies. For instance, the British did not establish British Malaya. British Malaya was just a name to refer to separate entities on the Peninsula. __earth (Talk) 07:30, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Then why is the current article: "Previously, a set of colonies were established by the United Kingdom from the late eighteenth century, and the western half of modern Malaysia was composed of several separate kingdoms. This group of colonies was known as British Malaya until its dissolution in 1946" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.54.43.81 (talk) 03:25, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to butt in .. but not all the territories were colonies. Most were actually protectorates. Perhaps a cleanup is necessary. - Bob K 04:41, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

User MonkeyAssault[edit]

The editor who you speak of has a history of deleting whole sections of articles that are anti-establishment or paints the Malaysian government or personalities in a bad light. He gives flimsy arguments such as Coatracking, BLP and fringe sources as his excuse in deleting and reediting the information in the article. I in fact suspected that this individual is a government agent as his history is not more than a few months old and he mainly concentrates his editing in government-related or government individual articles. His main focus over the last few months were in the following articles: Najib Tun Razak, Murder of Shaariibuugiin Altantuyaa, Port Klang Free Zone, Operation Lalang. I have already reported him at the 3R noticeboard, but the administrators only effectively froze one of the articles from further editing, without suspending him. If you think he can be reported for vandalism, please report him at the following noticeboard: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.Roman888 (talk) 15:49, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

The editor has also been at work at Church bombings in Malaysia (2010). I am wondering if the editor is actually part of the alleged public relations blitz that's supposedly financed by the man himself. - Bob K | Talk 19:50, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Economics census[edit]

Hello there. Sorry to bother you, but you are (titularly at least) a member of WP:WikiProject Economics, as defined by this category. If you don't know me, I'm a Wikipedia administrator, but an unqualified economist. I enjoy writing about economics, but I'm not very good at it, which is why I would like to support in any way I can the strong body of economists here on Wikipedia. I'm only bothering you because you are probably one of them. Together, I'd like us to establish the future direction of WikiProject Economics, but first, we need to know who we've got to help.

Whatever your area of expertise or level of qualification, if you're interested in helping with the WikiProject (even if only as part of a larger commitment to this wonderful online encyclopedia of ours), would you mind adding your signature to this page? It only takes a second. Thank you.

Message delivered on behalf of User:Jarry1250 by LivingBot.

Firstly, thank you for signing the census, and an apology if you are one of those editors who dislike posts such as this one for messaging you again in this way. I've now got myself organised and you can opt-out of any future communication at WP:WikiProject Economics/Newsletter. Just remove your name and you won't be bothered again.
Secondly, and most importantly, I would like to invite your comments on the census talk page about the project as a whole. I've given my own personal opinion on a range of topics, but my babbling is essentially worthless without your thoughts - I can't believe for one moment that everyone agrees with me in the slightest! :)

Deletion of vernacular languages[edit]

It has come to my attention, that you have been deleting vernacular languages from header. There is no wikipolicy that unequivocally objects the use of relevant languages in selected articles. Many western/north african countries retain their french colonial names despite many of them not granted official status in their respective countries. I suggest instead of just deleting otherwise impertinent details, you start editing the content of the articles. Hence being of better service than deleting headers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.132.83.98 (talk) 16:48, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

This has been discussed ages ago and it is just new people coming in within reading up on old discussion. In any case, why stop at just four languages? Furthermore, lots of African countries that have French names have French as the official language. On top of that, this is a collaborative effort. Everybody does their part, either by maintain the status quo or adding new stuff, which isn't necessarily better. (besides, most of those Malaysian pages were written by me long ago anyway. So, clearly, I've done my part. I'm only patrolling these days...) p/s - you should get a username. __earth (Talk) 01:33, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

This is a very useful, readable and professionally presented article. One of the best articles I've encountered. Now get working on building up other articles. Well done. SilkTork *YES! 13:41, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Meet-up: Editors from Malaysia[edit]

Hello! You might or might not have seen me around here as I've not been active in Wikipedia the past few months. Before leaving for NS, it was my intention to form a Malaysian user group. I'm still very much interested in forming the group. However, before forming the group, I would love to organize a meet-up between editors of the Malaysian editing community to test the waters and hear what you guys might have to say. To my knowledge, there has not been a Wikipedia meet-up in this country before. I don't mind organizing the meet-up but need to know if anyone is interested in joining the meet-up. So... please reply and let me know if you would be interested in joining a meet-up and your ideas/thoughts about a user group. Thank you.

Looking forward to hearing from you, Bejinhantalks 12:31, 15 December 2012 (UTC) (Message delivered by EdwardsBot (talk) 12:31, 15 December 2012 (UTC))
