Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Hadden, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, especially what you did for American Civil War reenactment. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Conflict of interest[edit]

I just wanted to make sure that you've seen Wikipedia's conflict of interest guideline. I know that you've periodically added things you've written as sources for articles, (e.g. your edits yesterday on heritage interpretation and living history) which is fine. I have no problem with any of the edits you've done, but to ensure no one complains in the future (that you are promoting your work by listing it as a reference in articles), you might consider doing this as an inline citation for specific statements in the article (see how Farb (reenactment) is done, for example). If you need any help with this, let me know and I'd be glad to help you out; Wikipedia always needs more good citations in articles! Thanks, cmadler (talk) 13:06, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Opal Kunz on your userpage[edit]

I made a small edit to merge some duplicate references; feel free to revert if you don't like it, but this is a preferred way to do it once it's moved to article-space. If you have any questions, just ask. Thanks, cmadler (talk) 13:54, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't see the changes you made. This is all still pretty new to me. I see that someone has moved "Opal kunz" into "Opal Kunz", but I don;'t know how they did this. It really frustrated me when I tried to do it several times, and few other articles would link without out the lower case "k". Hadden (talk) 20:55, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I see what happened. I made the change to the draft on your userpage. Here is my change, I will make the same change to the article. As for moving the article, Wikipedia:MOVE#How to move a page explains how. Where are you getting stuck in that process? cmadler (talk) 21:15, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited United States Geological Survey Library, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages William H. Jackson and William Bell (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles.

Isaac Bencowitz[edit]

Hello Hadden,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Isaac Bencowitz, may be copied from http://www.monumentsmen.com/bio.php?id=17. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Protection papers[edit]

I just copyedited the protection papers article to resolve the "#" issue. However, there are worse problems. Most importantly, major parts of the article seem to be copy-pasted from the sources: A copyright violation. Instead we shoud summarize in our own words what those sources say. If that isn't resolved as soon as possible, the article may well be deleted. This copy-paste approach to article writing also led to quite a high level of redundancy, with different sources' coverage of the same aspects repeated. Also, some parts of the article seemed rather off-topic and irrelevant to me, such as the discussions of individual holders of protection papers (I've removed two such paragraphs). The various "important for modern research" remarks should probably be gathered in a separate section and not sprinkled throughout the article. You may also want to check wheter I got all the punctuation right; I wouldn't be surprised if I had misinterpreted some. Huon (talk) 23:13, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

How to use non-free sources material[edit]

Hello, Hadden. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. Quotations should be used to support our text and not to form the bulk of our information on any topic. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:37, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Copyright problem: Arab archery[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Arab archery, 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 Saracen archery: an English version and exposition of a Mameluke work on archery (ca. A.D. 1368) (see talk), 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:Arab archery 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! Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:32, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for entering into the conversation about this, as it may help me clarify the issues.
First, you may base your work on a 14th century manuscript but that does not mean your work is free from copyright. Translation and exposition are forms of derivative work and entitled to new copyright under the U.S. law that governs us. It doesn't really matter if others have used Latham's words as well - what matters is that, without proof that they are public domain, we cannot, unless we are presenting them as explicit quotation. This is required by our copyright policy. Even if they are public domain, our guideline on plagiarism (Wikipedia:Plagiarism) requires that we note explicitly that we have copied the text from our source.
Beyond that, "fair use" is not the standard to which we aspire here - Wikipedia has deliberately chosen a narrower goal for several reasons. First, fair use is context specific, and we are aspiring to create content that can be used anywhere, by anyone, for any purpose. This is why we license our material for reuse commercially, for instance, even though we are ourselves non-profit. Additionally, this is not a line we care to push since there can be disagreement on what constitutes fair use. While the editorial practices you have used with quotations may be perfectly fair for an academic review article, paragraphs like the two that were removed by another administrator here are unlikely in my opinion to be transformative enough for publication on one of the most accessed websites in the world. As our policy dictates at WP:NFC, for non-free content to be used on Wikipedia, we must be reasonably sure that its usage would be considered fair in United States copyright law and also that it complies with our own non-free content criteria.
I notice, too, that you copied content into the article from another Wikipedia page: History of archery. You did this without providing the requisite credit to the authors of that content. As I had explained to you earlier the day you created the article, this is not permitted. Wikipedia's articles are liberally licensed, but they are not public domain. Our content cannot be reused without meeting the terms of our license. You can see the process for complying with our policy on reusing Wikipedia's content at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.
Addressing the Western bias in Wikipedia is important, and this seems like a good article for us to have, but it is also important for us to make sure that the article we wind up with complies with our approach to non-free content. The entire page has been blocked because it is not possible to determine how much of it you copied from other sources. The image is not an issue, but is simply blanked with the rest of the page until we can be sure that it has been written in original text, using only brief quotations as supplemental and supportive to your original content.
If you have any questions about any of this, please let me know at my talk page. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:17, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Your change to the article Arab archery has been reverted. Please note the instructions for addressing the copyright issue. You are welcome to rewrite it, but you must do so in the temporary space provided. (This part begins "If you would like to begin working on a new version....") The template you removed from the article page also talks about how and where this is done, at the bolded text reading, "Otherwise, you may write a new article without copyright-infringing material.
