Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Asian golden cat ‎, as "minor" only if they 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. AdventurousSquirrel (talk) 08:59, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Kaludiya Pokuna Forest[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Kaludiya Pokuna Forest, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://sharmini-serasinghe.blogspot.com/2011/04/kaludiya-pokuna-in-kandalama.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Copyright problem: Kaludiya Pokuna Forest[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Kaludiya Pokuna Forest, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10764-012-9629-9, and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:Kaludiya Pokuna Forest saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved.

Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 13:45, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Please use full citations (e.g. article or book title, author, year, etc), not simply URLs. Also, taxoboxes need not list every possible rank, only major or relevant ones: That G. yahkhuna is in Lepidosauromorpha is true but largely redundant.

Sinhalese translation[edit]

I notice that you appear to be fairly active in creating various Sri Lankan articles and that you area native Sinhalese speaker. I was hoping that you might be able to add the Sinhalese names for a couple of the articles that I have recently created or edited, namely Mirissa, Ella, Ravana Falls and Kayman's Gate. If you can help out that would be greatly appreciated. Dan arndt (talk) 04:43, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Final warning - copyright violation[edit]

File:Shihan Mihiranga.jpg is clearly not your image ( see here). Please count this as a final warning. If you breach copyright again you may find your account blocked from either uploading or editing - Peripitus (Talk) 12:56, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Where you got the image from is irrelevant. The image is not your image and you cannot upload it here claiming that your are the author. Copyright means the right to control how copies are made - you do not have this right for this image, and many others you have uploaded. - Peripitus (Talk) 09:54, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Plant synonyms[edit]

Hi, I see that you have been editing pages about tropical trees, including accessing theplantlist.org. I thought you might be interested in a program that produces code for wikipedia to format a synonym list from theplantlist. It is documented at User:Sminthopsis84/TPLSynonyms, and I announced it at WT:PLANTS#Tools for adding lists to plant pages. I've just used it on some pages you had edited, Cinnamomum dubium, Litsea glaberrima, Litsea iteodaphne, and Litsea longifolia. If you'd like to use it and need any help, please let me know on my talk page. Best wishes, Sminthopsis84 (talk) 17:25, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

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. January (talk) 17:58, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Sri Lanka T20 International cricket records, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Newlands. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
