What the... I'm blocked while at school, even when logged in? That's new. Things work fine while I'm at home, but is there any way for Wikipedia to differentiate me from other anonymous users behind the school proxy? -Fadookie Talk 17:14, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Not at present, its a bug that has been filed but hasn't gotten around to. Evenually yes, but for now no, sorry! Perhaps you can make a note of the edits you want to make on your talk page and edit them when you get home -- Tawker 23:04, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

RE: Template:WikiProject Professional sound production[edit]

Hey Fadookie! I really appreciate the initiative you took! My main goal was to "get the ball rolling" whether someone used my code or not. I'd never made a template before so was learning as I went along but ran out of time to work on it.

I'm totally fine with using the full name. I only opted for the short version because I was unaware of the standard. Good work on the assessment scheme and getting the automation going. That was something that really needed to happen because of the vast amount of substandard articles we have to tackle.

And thanks for keeping me posted and checking with me! Your community attitude is awesome. Hopefully once my studies die down I'll have time to get back to contributing to the project. In the meantime, keep it up! :) --Davidkazuhiro 05:45, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I've requested the article Loudspeaker to have peer review. I noticed it was pretty good and might deserve a GA status.

Hello, Fadookie. An automated process has found and removed an image or media file tagged as nonfree media, and thus is being used under fair use that was in your userspace.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Galaxy1.highlight.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Galaxy1.highlight.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. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 18:44, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Newcleushadowall.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. Rossrs (talk) 12:56, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Freesound sample screenshot.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Freesound sample screenshot.png. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Orphaned non-free image File:Avid media composer screenshot.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Avid media composer screenshot.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. 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. Skier Dude (talk) 05:14, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

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.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too.

Nomination of Jahshaka for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Jahshaka is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jahshaka until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

I was going to attempt to save it, but there's little reliable third-party coverage, and the development seems to be highly sporadic. Mindmatrix 20:53, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
