Welcome!

Hello, Galzigler, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as AutoPlay Media Studio, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of AutoPlay Media Studio[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on AutoPlay Media Studio, 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. Alpha Quadrant talk 19:58, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Then, why other products are allowed, like: Adobe's products, Microsoft's and others, and even advertised in an article dealing with the type of the software, for example: OCR? This software belong to the group of Fourth-generation programming language. Galzigler (talk) 15:42, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

September 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia! I am glad to see you are interested in discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Long division and Talk:Live CD are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you.

File:Steadystate.png[edit]

Hi, Galzigler

I saw your new version of File:Steadystate.png and I cannot really understand the point of this upload. It is bigger (2.7x the previous version), lacks the User Settings section (less informative) and has a messy Windows chrome (uglier). Seems to me that apart from reminding people of a big failure known as Windows Vista, it serves no other purpose. If you have a good reason to keep your version, I am all ears.

Regards,
Fleet Command (talk) 19:44, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have a Vista OS or an installation of it, and that's the only thing I could find. I secceed to run it under W7, but it's using its XP UI, so it doesn't really helps. Galzigler (talk) 19:26, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Don't worry. There is no mandate to use "the latest picture". Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a software update website like Download.com. As long as the picture fulfills its purpose, it is okay. Other elements like size, professional look and compliance with WP:NFCC are also important.
In response to your concern about the picture being possibly fake, I uploaded another version from Windows XP.
I am afraid we cannot accept a picture of Windows SteadyState running on Window 7 because it fails to comply with WP:NFCC, clauses 8 and 10. After all, image of a piece of software running on non-supported OS does not serve the purpose of indentification. Fleet Command (talk) 15:45, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

I don't have any information about the type of license for logos in Wikimedia Commons. I got it from a teacher, so I can't give a bibliography (or a link to where it was taken from), although it can be found on the Internet, but in a lower quality. Galzigler (talk) 18:33, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

A logo like this meets the threshold of originality and should not have been uploaded to the Commons, which is only for freely useable files. It should have been uploaded here on the local en.wiki and tagged for fair use. I have downloaded to this wiki as file:Ort_Israel_logo.jpg and placed the correct templates on the image. It needs to be a bit smaller to meet our fair-use guidelines, so I have tagged it for reduction, and one of our editors that specialises in that task will be along soon to reduce it to a size that meets our guidelines. -- Dianna (talk) 20:12, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
OK, thanks. But why is it required to reduce the size of the logo? Galzigler (talk) 20:36, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
It's one of the non-free content requirements. Here's a link to the policy page: WP:Image resolution. -- Dianna (talk) 23:31, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Windows RT Edit War (sigh)[edit]

Please contribute to the poll on Talk:Windows RT. (You are being asked because you commented on Windows.) Tuntable (talk) 23:19, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't understand why was I asked to join this discussion. I never edited this page, and I don't know much about the subject. Basically, I think it was a stupid idea to compile Windows to ARM architecture just like that, without adding some sort of compatibility layer (a simple interpreter or a virtual machine) for x86 applications. In Linux distros it makes more sense. Galzigler (talk) 23:47, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Draw with Me[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 Draw with Me 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 web content, 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.

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. reddogsix (talk) 23:05, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Deleting interwiki links[edit]

Hi! Why are you mass-deleting interwiki links, such as this edit? They are there for good reasons and your edit comment "Wikidata" does not explain why you delete them. -- intgr [talk] 20:19, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

You may read about the change in Wikipedia's standard about interwiki links here. Interwiki links are no longer necessary, because they are now saved in one location - on Wikidata, so the situation where there is no synchronization between the articles, about the interwiki links won't happen anymore, and to save the space require for this code in the article itself. Galzigler (talk) 20:26, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok, cool! Please use a clearer edit comment though, not everyone is up to speed yet. -- intgr [talk] 20:37, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
I saw a few edits of it, they usually clear that they delete the interwiki links, because it's now on Wikidata. I think it's just a waste for Wikimedia servers to write such a long description. They edits are also usually monitored by the admins to make sure the recent edits are not trolling and to verify the new contributions. I understand why it seems odd, because it's quite new, and entered Wikipedia only a month ago. Galzigler (talk) 20:44, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
PLEASE - it's not a waste at all - put a comment like "interwiki links now on wikidata" - an explanatory edit comment like this (NOT assuming that everyone is aware of everything) is never a waste (even if it takes a lot more space than in this instance to explain oneself properly) - while a cryptic one will often waste editors' time (much more valuable than the server's "time") working out what the hell is going on. Like mine in this instance - my initial reaction was that it was vandalism, and I had to take time off other things to work out what was going on. If I'd been hastier, busier, or just in a shitty mood, I could easily have started to reverse your edits as "unexplained" - and it would have been your fault. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 21:46, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
The Hebrew Wikipedia has a built in option for an edit summary about Wikidata, and that's all what it says, it's not giving any other information about the reason the interwiki links were removed. Anyway, I don't understand why bots aren't doing this job – cleaning the articles from those interwiki links in case there is a Wikidata item of it, the creation of the items should have also been done by bots, by combining the interwiki links from the parallel articles to make sure there are no missing entries, but apperently it's not what was happening. Galzigler (talk) 22:05, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
But this is the English Wikipedia and here we use edit comments to explain edits. Also with regards to "waste for Wikimedia servers", see Wikipedia:Don't worry about performance. Wasting a few bytes of server resources is worth it if it saves minutes of volunteers' time. -- intgr [talk] 22:12, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
A few minutes can quickly escalate into many hours of wasted editor time when it's multiplied by enough editors. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 22:32, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
I was also about to revert these edits. Please use more descriptive edit summaries, or at least use a wikilinked version. Thanks, SchreyP (messages) 23:21, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Where is there a discussion showing that editors should delete interwiki links? From the stuff I've seen (and I have somewhat followed what's going on at wikidata), editors should not delete such links. For one thing, it will take some time for iw bots to be fixed so they don't re-add such links. Also, have you personally checked that the removed links are in fact recorded on the corresponding wikidata page? If so, the edit summary needs to say that. I saw some mention that a bot was going to given the task of performing that check, and removing the links, while at the same time doing some other useful maintenance work. Watchlists should not be cluttered with pointless edits such as removing iw links from hundreds of articles, unless something useful is also done. Johnuniq (talk) 23:29, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Galzigler. Like intgr, I was confused by your edit removing interwiki links, accompanied by a very terse edit summary. I spent a confused several seconds looking at the history thinking, "He deleted the interwiki links. But they're still there. Der?"

I think it would be helpful to use a somewhat more detailed edit summary. Maybe, as you said to intgr, "Interwiki links are no longer necessary", or perhaps "Interwiki links are now on Wikidata". Happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 02:59, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Johnuniq. Yes, I checked that the articles are recorded on Wikidata (actually if the "Edit links" link appears at the buttom of the list of the interwiki links it means they are grabbed from a Wikidata item. About the bots, I saw that bots sometimes reverted those edits. Actually, some of my edits was to remove them again after a bot returned them, but the user who did it not noticed it. Discussion abou it? That's the purpose of the project - instead of it being recorded on articles multiple times, it's recorded only one time. Why is there a need to make any other change to remove the links? Bots aren't doing it, and right now there are no bots which removes the links. I hope someone will activate such a bot, as you said. I thought people around here are updated about this change - maybe Wikipedia sould advertise it using a banner, like they did with Wikivoyage. Galzigler (talk) 12:33, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
PS, because you're so angry abou me for doing these changes, I'll stop it. Anyway, as Johnuniq claimed a bot will activate to do this job soon. Galzigler (talk) 12:37, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Apparently this issue is quite common here. I saw someone else asking about this problem: meta:Talk:Wikidata#Removing_interwiki_links_and_there_reversal. Galzigler (talk) 12:46, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

I found out there is a tag for Wikidata edit - if you write in the edit summary [[Wikidata]] this text will be added after the edit summary: "Removal of all interwiki links". It's not a part of the edit summary, but appears after it. Galzigler (talk) 17:28, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

February 2013[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Ribbon (computing), without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. Codename Lisa (talk) 02:51, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello, again. I discovered the reason behind your edit on my own. But would you please be a sport and add edit summaries? To tell the truth, I am tired of assuming good faith and searching for the reason myself, especially since the number of people who do not provide edit summaries and do vandal-like edits is large. I have a life you know. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 03:06, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Removing interwiki links[edit]

When removing interwiki links from a page you must make sure that they are actually contained in Wikidata. I just added three that you missed in your edit of Facebook. —Naddy (talk) 12:45, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Smart TV interaction.svg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Smart TV interaction.svg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ViperSnake151  Talk  23:35, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
