# User talk:Hfastedge

Ha! thanks for fixing my outdated user page.w — Toby 23:14 Sep 19, 2002 (UTC)

Hello there Hfastedge, welcome to the 'pedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you ever need editing help visit Wikipedia:How does one edit a page and experiment at Wikipedia:Sandbox. If you need pointers on how we title pages visit Wikipedia:Naming conventions. If you have any other questions about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or add a question to the Village pump. Cheers! --maveric149

Hi, Hfastedge. Welcome! There are some good articles on Wikpedia on how to add things. For example, Wikipedia is helpful. I just discovered this and I've been here for about a year.

Hello. The duplication between athletics and track running was well-spotted, but in the changing of one to a merge stuff was lost, such as the link to the 100m record list. I've pasted the older verion of track running to Talk:Athletics, as it seems to me that there are some things in that text that aren't mentioned in the ahtletics article. If you're knowledgeable on this subject (I'm not), could you take a look? thanks. -- Tarquin 14:54 Sep 22, 2002 (UTC)

You'll notice from my contributions page here that i just contributed piles on each athletics category. i need not even bother more than scanning what i deleted to realize that i probably covered it in my 3 pages on: sprints, middle distance, and long distance. User:Hfastedge
Fair point. But you actually did miss a link to a page liting world records for 100m. It may be harder work to merge two texts, but it is more polite to preserve the best of what has already been written than to start completely fresh. -- Tarquin 18:49 Sep 22, 2002 (UTC)

I'm curious about how you access the wiki database for the script at the top of your use page. I think it's a great idea, I just want to make sure it's done in such a way that it doesn burden the server or risk security. Do you log into MySQL remotely with the user password, or do you download the database periodically, or do you just call up special pages and filter them? Just curious. --LDC

I randomly download the webpages over a certain period of time to minimize load on the server. I only download ones that are listed on my user contributions page. Are there other ways (eg like accessing mysql) that are open to the public? There some more intelligence going on behind the scenes as well.

No, it was not my intent to make the MySQL database directly accessible from outside, which is one reason I was curious :-) If you're just accessing through URLs and parsing history lists, etc., that's great, and shouldn't place any load on the server unless you're hitting Recent Changes constantly or something. Keep in mind that I do update the software now and then, so you might want to keep an eye on the mailing list to see if I announce changes (one I have planned soon will change the format of history pages, which I why I bring it up).

I've responded to your question at User talk:Ram-Man -- Ram-Man

eYou asked: explain how the article count just jumped 5000 articles in a day user_talk:hfastedge

I have no idea. I have had nothing to do with the article count since january; I used to run a script to request the list of all articles and then do some subtracting of users, pages about wikipedia etc.; but the old wiki software timed out when the list got past 20K articles, so I couldn't run it anymore, and the new wiki software has it built in, AFAIK Malcolm Farmer 15:59 Oct 20, 2002 (UTC)

I'm really not sure what you're trying to ask me about Ram-Man; he's just using the normal Wikipedia access facilities over the web with a bot. You'll have to ask him any details. We have no plans to switch to Postgres soon, if ever. The database is not a bottleneck; it could be 100 times as large and not be any slower from the user's point of view--we tested that extensively. MySQL is more than up to the job. MySQL's limitations just don't come into play here (the software is pretty much written around them), and its speed is actually better than most more powerful databases for the queries we're doing. Most of the speed problems come not with the size of the database, but with the number of simultaneous users. --LDC

Hfastedge, I've explained my edits of your Python programming language contributions on the talk page there. You should consider monitoring the talk pages of articles to which you make contributions, as that is where people will explain their edits. I have attempted to merge what accurate points you make into the rest of the article, but I have removed (and will continue to remove) erroneous statements ("Python is interpreted, not compiled"), and I will severely edit that which is ungrammatical. --FOo

See my response at User talk:Ram-Man

Hi there. I don't think pages like "2000 years ago" are a good idea. -- Tarquin 18:19 Jan 2, 2003 (UTC)

Hi, greetings from Korea! -- User:Hyungjin Ahn

Regarding the number of Go games. The number is not really known, but the estimate that is usually taken is 361!(=361x360x359x...x2x1), being the number if you don't consider illegal moves or captures: There are 361 possibilities to play the first move, then 360 to play the second, then 359 to play the third, etcetera.

The page Go (board game) gives not the number of games, but the number of positions. This is in first estimate equal to 3361: Each point can be either black or white or empty. A friend of mine has once let the computer generate a large number of random positions, and concluded that about 10% of them were legal, so a good estimate of the number of actual Go positions would be $\frac{3^{361}}{10}$. Andre Engels 05:14 Mar 2, 2003 (UTC)

I have a bad news for you. You have been accused of violating copyright by uploading the image Image:Tibetmap.png. In your interest, I have asked this question in the Village pump for you. Speak for yourself. --142.103.108.105 23:51 Mar 26, 2003 (UTC)

I've deleted the image in question. Hfastedge, did you remove the copyright notice, Lonely Planet logo, and legend from this image yourself, or did you just pick it up from some other site without realizing it was a third-party's copyrighted material? --Brion 00:27 Mar 27, 2003 (UTC)
We all need to be careful concerning copyright information. It's not YOU that will be taken to court, it's Jimbo Wales, the owner of the website, and Wikipedia can be shut down as a result. Let's just be careful instead of argumentative. -- Zoe

Re: "Give me an argument defended your rash action of deleting it". Here's an argument: the map is copyrighted. It's the intellectual property of a third party, whose permission you do not have to reproduce it or redistribute it under the terms of the GFDL (whether you knew it or not). Thus, Wikipedia cannot reproduce and redistribute it under the terms of the GFDL (particularly now that we know it's copyrighted). Leaving it on the wiki once we knew this would be to knowingly continue to reproduce and redistribute it without the permission of the copyright owner, leaving the project open to claims of copyright infringement.

Now, if you did as you say get the map from [1], had you investigated you'd have seen this notice on the site's main page: "© Copyright Milarepa Travels. All rights reserved." Maybe they stole the map too, maybe they licensed it; either way, you can't assume it's public domain when it's not marked as such and is clearly newer than the 1920s -- and certainly not when copyright notices are splashed over the page.

Please don't submit any more third-party material without verifying that it's public domain or GFDL-compatible. If you want maps, either find clearly marked public domain ones or make your own. --Brion 20:54 Mar 27, 2003 (UTC)

Hi Hfastedge,

Thanks for your note on Zofiabaatar and well spotted. It's pretty much copied in from http://home.arcor.de/ktdykes/plagiau.htm. At the end of the entry is: "MESOZOIC MAMMALS; Basal Multituberculata, an internet directory. Both this page and that internet project are the work of Trevor Dykes."

In other words, I am the original author. I'll see what I can do about Wikification. Hi Hfastedge,
I'm glad that's cleared up. I'm leaving a somewhat altered note on them, which states I'm the authour of the source material. I realized the original attempt seemed to be claiming some kind of 'ownership' of the relevant Wikipedia pages. What I don't intend to do is directly copy all my Mesozoic mammals into Wikidom, but to mould the information in. Some of what I have available is unnecessarily detailed. Other bits are too speculative. In some cases, eg. Zofiabaatar, I don't happen to have much more than the barest details, so editing would be pointless. By wikification, am I right in thinking you mean integrating the stuff with already existing entries; eg. linking the word Jurassic to the 'Jurassic' entry and so? That can be worked on. I think this'll be easier once I've imported all the multituberculate mammal material.

re:chess -- I agree with you, but my only objective was to unclutter the Wikipedia:Village pump page. You should address yourself to Dietary Fiber, who put the problems together. Slrubenstein

You got some gall asking for favors, buddy. --Brion 22:13 Mar 28, 2003 (UTC)

The Constitution says in Article 1, Section 3, Clause 4:

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

When a Senator refers to Mr. President, this refers to three people: The Vice-President (Dick Cheney), the President Pro Tem (Ted Stevens), or whoever is in the chair during the session. When a Senator refers to George W. Bush, they refer to him as the President of the United States.

Hi the intention is not to bother, but to inform, thats what an encyclopedia is for. I have only written a couple of the articles on commercials. If you think the subject is covered too much, you need to check the List of television programs. I only write about things that have been, in my opinion, remarkable and because of that, worthy of an article.

For example, Ken Buchanan, I thought he was a remarkable boxer, many call him the greatest world champion ever to come from Scotland. But most encyclopedias would overlook any other boxer that is not Muhammad Ali. Ken Buchanan beat guys like Carlos Ortiz and Ismael Laguna. Not only that, bu because of boxing's often ridiculous policies, when it came down to his career, he was basically an expatriate in his own homeland. Not many outside scotland might know who he is, but he was a world champion boxer and he went through large personal tribulations because of being one. I thought that I'd write on him because the public should know about him.

As far as the commercials go, I am not sure I will write any articles about commercials anymore, but the Pepsi commercial with Shaquille O' Neal and the Southwest Airlines Wanna get away? ads are very famous, and in my opinion, funny, although I didnt critic the commercials because everyone has their own opinion about them and you know, these articles have to be kept npov.

Other than that, thank you for reading the articles ad God bless you.

Sincerely yours Antonio Spaced Out Martin

Thanks for the pointer to the Japanese page for mailman! I'll ask his help. Tomos 20:34 May 8, 2003 (UTC)

update

Well, after having looked at the pages in that site, it became rather clear that the more recent versions (2.1.1 or later) of mailman is supposedly free of the problem. Ours now is 2.0.13. I guess I should ask Jason if it is easy and possible to upgrade mailman to a later version. Tomos 06:19 May 9, 2003 (UTC)

another update. I got an email from Jason. He said there is a real possibility that the software upgrade will happen. It seems that he and others are thinking about moving the mailing list to another server. That, he says, generally involves software upgrading. He did not mention when that would happen, though. Tomos 09:35 17 May 2003 (UTC)

Would you like to do the honors of shrinking down your newer version of image:Honigbiene.JPG so it can fit nicely in the table at the longly-named How to tell a honeybee from a wasp, hornet, etc. page, or should I do it myself? -- John Owens 12:33 May 11, 2003 (UTC)

I think that Futurama (animated series) is the first Undisambiguation page I have made. I went to Futurama expecting to find the series, and found that it house 3 articles. I figured there was more than enough there on the cartoon to make it is't own page, so I did. If you are wondering what possesed me to goto the Futurama page, I wanted to put a quote of Fry's on my user page, but I wanted to link to the Futurama article. So I went to see if that article existed. Then I decided to move it to it's own page. Alas, I haven't found the quote I want yet :). It's somewhere on my computer at home, but I won't be there till monday (3 days) :(. MB 00:38 17 May 2003 (UTC)

Hi, I moved the famous Bob Jackson photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald to Talk:Lee Harvey Oswald pending clarification of copyright and use permission. -- Infrogmation 15:26 22 May 2003 (UTC)

Concerning maps of Japanese regions: The resources I listed in the map are only a reference from where I got the outline for the Japanese prefectures. From there I did a some editing and added the colors. I also uploaded the original gimp file under Wikipedia:WikiProject_Japanese_prefectures/Images just in case someone wants to do their own version or wants to improve the images.

I'm not quite sure about the tempura pic I can try finding one on the net but usually I only use pics I have shot myself just to make sure the copyright is ok (I know I'm overly paranoid).

Can you clarify about the picture size ref. you made. Are you refering to images I uploaded or are you asking about how to do proper image processing? --cheers synthetik 13:55 28 May 2003 (UTC)

Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa! I accidentially put this message on your main page:

Please follow the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (names and titles) when naming royal pages on wiki. Unless a crown prince has a specific title, they are put in as Crown Prince even if they haven't that formal title, to make clear that they are heir apparent to a throne. That is particularly with regard to principalities, to distinguish the reigning prince (often called the 'hereditary prince') from the heir. Those who don't know might not understand Prince Albert of Monaco is the hereditary prince yet but the crown prince. FearÉIREANN 22:29 28 May 2003 (UTC) FearÉIREANN 21:26 29 May 2003 (UTC)

In the UK, we don't generally have non roundabout style traffic circles (with cars on the circle required to give way). So I'm unqualified to provide such an illustration, although I could have a go and ask people to comment if it's incorrect. Mintguy

I have been trying to keep your haphazard changes to the Python programming language article integrated. I have not simply been deleting them. However, when you add statements which are not true, use the page as a platform for advocacy, or fail to respond to critiques addressed to you, it is hard not to step on your contributions somewhat in setting things aright.

I have several times seen you make additions which were simply false -- for instance, claiming that Python is an interpreted language rather than bytecode-compiled; that it is unsuited for large projects; or that its dynamic typing is a design flaw or oversight. These are not matters of opinion -- they are simply not true, and so it is entirely fitting that they be removed from the article.

I've also seen you use the article for what seem to me to be passing snipes against dynamically typed languages, for instance claiming that Python's Extreme Programming-informed unit testing framework exists to make up for the absence of static type checking. I don't know what your problem is with dynamically-typed languages, but that claim is also simply factually false. Unit testing is a valuable tool for correctness in just about any language, including statically typed ones.

no, i said nothing about python's unit testing framework. Rather i meant that unit testing is a recommended practice for dynamically typed languages.

You have also failed to respond to critiques of your changes on that article's Talk page. This is a far greater problem, in my opinion, because it suggests that you are not interested in cooperating or explaining your changes. This makes it extraordinarily difficult to work with your edits -- since they are neither explained when made, nor defended when challenged. --FOo 19:09 7 Jun 2003 (UTC)

If you've deleted the items from the culture list, please put them back up.

Don't send me demands for responses when you don't respond substantively to critiques of your edits. The article talk page is the appropriate forum, but you've never used it. --FOo 23:23 17 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Ah yes, I noticed the issue with the name just after I uploaded, next time I'll be more descriptive. However, the image guide for wikipedia suggests images have a 150-200 pixel width, dimensions I went somewhat over with that picture. I do have a much larger version (1 meg or so) but didn't want to slow down the loading of that page too much for those not blessed with broadband. Perhaps I'll upload that and add a link to the image description page as time and my erratic (but broadband) internet connection permits. Thanks for the pointers!

Hi, thanks for your criticism of Data strobe encoding in User_talk:194.113.59.80. I fixed most of the points you brought up, with the exception of XOR as it should be easily inferrable how to apply the truth table to logic values (especially with the new graphic). Colin Marquardt 18:09, 13 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for reading the article I began writing about Raul Barragan and for fixing it. The only thing is, I speak English perfectly! Ive been in the United States 13 years and prior to that, my fmaily spoke English (although on special occasions only) in Puerto Rico.

I had to use many words such as allegedly and supposedly because you know how it is, suppose the subject of the article understands English, he could read it and maybe sue us if I wrote that he did it as if it was a fact. Other things that I found out during research of the person I thought were irrevelant enough to leave them out. But I dont know, I mean, articles here (and thank God so) are to be left for every editor to judge.

Anyways, thanks, and may the almighty Lord and God in Heaven bless you!

Sincerely yours, Antonio Mr. Heartbeat Martin

Do you have permission to post the image at Image:Autotrans.jpg? The site does not appear to give permission to use its images, but I don't read Japanese. Also, why the caption 'A typical neutrino event at Super K )' ??

I'm also not sure the picture really adds anything to the article, so I'm removing it. Sure, it shows some of the internals of an auto trans, but not in a way that helps anyone who doesn't know how they work. --Morven 06:30, 7 Oct 2003 (UTC)

Please take time to credit photos such as I did with http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Star_WR124_small.jpg Pizza Puzzle

Hunter, is it really necessary to upload "Larger images" as well as small? The image in the article should be sufficient. A larger image just consumes system resources which are at a premium these days. --Fernkes 00:58, Oct 13, 2003 (UTC)

Hi, you seem inactive, but they are getting ready to delete your history of Tibet article, which as you note in the comments you obtained from the website Friends of Tibet, New Zealand, http://www.friends-of-tibet.org.nz/tibet.html Is there any basis for useing this material on Wikipedia. For example did you have permission or are you the author? Fred Bauder 02:09, 2 Nov 2003 (UTC) Please respond on my user talk page or email me should you log back in and notice this question.

Any simple image processing tool can obtain the size of an image. As wikipedia allows for anyone to reupload images, someone that chooses to resize one of yours will also have to change the name of the image in the wiki. These are two reasons that you should stop this process. If you need coaxing, i can give you a tool i have been using that allows me to upload images automatically from the command line

Whatever does this mean, I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about! Perhaps you sent the message to the wrong person?

## B-E condensate image description

Please include a description on . What is it plotting? Experiment or simulation, and what is the citation? Where does the picture come from? (Is it copyrighted?) —Steven G. Johnson 19:28, Jun 5, 2004 (UTC)

On my talk page, you wrote:

re the b/e condensate, just check out original quote from the version where i just added the image. You may want to bring back this text that echoes both of our concerns. re the copyright concern, no i will not engage you or anyone about _concerns_ unless the concern is from a federalcourt of the country i live in.

I can't understand what you are saying. What original quote? What "version" where you "just added the image?" Are you referring to the Bose-Einstein condensate page? But that does not describe the image axes, or say whether it is experiment or simulation, or give a reference, or say where you got the image.

• A citation (literature or web) that describes the image.
• A link or description of where you got the image.
• A description of what is being plotted ... at least the axes of the plot and whether it is theory or experiment.

## Fusion power images

I think a picture of the sun has a place there, since the sun really does work as a huge reactor in the sense that it generates useful power from the nuclear fusion process (the picture nicely illustrates just how much power fusion can generate). Of course, there should be pictures (photos and diagrams) of reactors and various devices related to them, in addition. There are few articles on Wikipedia that suffer from having too many images :) - Fredrik (talk) 20:22, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)

## Panama Canel Photo you uploaded

Hi, I would like to know on the photo you uploaded from stanford.edu.

## Re: enlisted ranks

Hfastedge wrote:

do you know of a tempate like Template:US enlisted ranks for officers?

Nope, but it can be done easily. The Army, Air Force and the Marines refer to them as the same; it is only the Navy that uses sailor's terms (like Admiral, etc). Template:US officer ranks I guess?

Hfastedge wrote:

also, do you know of the practice of calling officers lower than (a major i think) by the name of "corporal".

Never heard of that "practice", and I really really doubt that it exists at all. Corporal is an enlisted rank and is a non-commissioned officer (NCO). You must always refer to a soldier with its current rank, not a lower or a higher rank. The only reason that I can think of to refer improperly would be if he the soldier is unable to verify the appropiate rank of the other soldier (he isn't wearing the collar devices or has them covered by accident).

Hope that helps,

When you get this feeling (and we all do at times) it is always a good idea to look around for alternate terms or locations that the information might already be located at. In this case it is at Razor so I have changed your page to a redirect to that one. You might also want to check your layout and wiki codes as your page was misformatted too. --Vamp:Willow 12:18, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)

## Image Tagging Image:JesseOwens 1936olym.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:JesseOwens 1936olym.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or {{fairuse}}. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by going to "Your contributions" from your user page and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thanks so much. --Agnte 10:54, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

## Image copyright problem with Image:Venice_aerial.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Venice_aerial.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or ask for help at Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. Thank you. -- Carnildo 07:36, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

## Image Tagging Image:Henry IV of france by pourbous younger.jpg

 This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Henry IV of france by pourbous younger.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, 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 unsourced and untagged images 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. Admrb♉ltz ( T | I | E ) 00:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

## Image:Albert of Monaco.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Albert of Monaco.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. Chowbok 02:00, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

## Fair use rationale for Image:Gimp marble pattern.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Gimp marble pattern.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with 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 fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and 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.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 23:41, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

## Unspecified source for Image:Gimp marble pattern.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Gimp marble pattern.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 23:41, 17 May 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 23:41, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

## AfD nomination of Obamakkah

I have nominated Obamakkah, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Obamakkah.

## Speedy deletion of Obamakkah

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages such as Obamakkah, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

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), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. MuZemike (talk) 14:02, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia!
