Disputed fair use rationale for Image:2001 ed The International Jew by Henry Ford.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:2001 ed The International Jew by Henry Ford.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. —Angr If you've written a quality article... 21:36, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Please explain what does "there is a concern" mean, and exactly what about this low resolution sourced image is being disputed and where? Thanks. ←Humus sapiens ну? 23:17, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Request for copyright authorization[edit]

I intend to use the graphic image labeled "2nd century Rome gold goblet shows Jewish ritual objects.jpg" <http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:2nd_century_Rome_gold_goblet_shows_Jewish_ritual_objects.jpg> as an illustration for a forthcoming textbook on Judaism to be published commercially by Routledge. Since you are listed as the file's uploader, my editors have recommended "if you are in any doubt you could contact the person who uploaded the image." I am hereby doing so, and would appreciate it if you could confirm, or at least provide background, for the picture's public domain status and permission to reprint.

Middle East Textbooks Invitation[edit]

quoting a blogger[edit]

I am aware that blogging being an unregulated force, quotes from a blog do not constitute a validation for a viewpoint or be counted as a source for anything with a factual basis. In this specific case however I am using a remarkable peice of writing, that happens to appear on a blog, to illustrate the ways that the language is and can be used. In that context I do not feel that the fact it is written by a blogger in any way diminishes its validity and the point it makes.

Futhermore the piece that I have tried to use as a quote not only perfectly illustrates the point but it is the fact that it appears on a blog written by a chassidic jew (and we all know that they are a retiring community that do not often make their views plain to outsiders) that makes it all the more relevant! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.66.110.45 (talk) 19:39, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

I need your help again[edit]

There is a user who is harassing, name-calling, and is generally being disruptive to many articles. She has been warned on numerous occasions and archives pages before you can reply to her incivility. This has finally gotten out of hand, and I would like to know what to do about this user. To find out the details, please see my talk page. I was willing to ignore her for quite some time and take her abuse. But it has ended up going too far in this case. Can you please help me, or at least show me how to go through the process of reporting users? Thank you very much.--Lan Di (talk) 23:54, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

The arguments made by Lan Di have in some cases been laughed at (not by me) for being pointless and nonsense. The user is incredibly in-civil towards me by engaging in discussions which are solely to attack me such as on User Talk:Angelriver and User Talk:MiB-24. I find the user to be highly disruptive and in my opinion not familiar with the policies and guidelines of Wikipedia. The user had pushed me to the limit and I exploded in one go and only once, the user is just as to blame if not more to blame than I am.--Lucy-marie (talk) 00:11, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I would like to directly quote some of the comments made by Lan Di "All we have to do is attack her credibility". "I can also get my admin friend involved, as he likes me, and will help us out if I ask for it". "I will get my admin friend to slap her down extremely hard". "We really need your guys help in slapping her down again". These comments seem to show a pattern that Lan DI firstly has a disliking for me and secondly is going to make personal attacks and involve administrators to attempt to have me "slapped down". These comments are highly uncivil and do not focus on anything but me as a user.--Lucy-marie (talk) 00:33, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

And what about your comments to Lan Di which included calling him a "petty, ignorant, obsessed fan" as well as being uneducated and narrow minded? Civility works both ways, Lucy. You have a habit of incivility that started with me from my very first day here where you called me an "absolute wally", "stupid" and threatened to have me banned. Angelriver (talk) 00:38, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
That is one individual comment and not a systematic and virtually continuous pattern. Here is not the place for Angelriver and I to discuss our differences that is for one of our individual talk pages.--Lucy-marie (talk) 00:48, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
I agree, Lucy. This is for our talk pages. Unfortunately though, you archive yours before rebuttals can be made. Angelriver (talk) 00:50, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

My Rfa[edit]

Well, not this time anyway it seems...my effort to regain my adminship was unsuccessful, but your support was still very much appreciated. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Thank you!--MONGO 07:16, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Palestinian POV pushing[edit]

Recently, a new User Coda Stage (talk · contribs) created a number of controversial articles and categories that are profoundly POV. Some attention and input, as well as some discussion, would be welcome regarding: Zionist hunter (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Zionist hunter); Category:The Nakba (deletion discussion); Category:Israeli war crimes (deletion discussion); and his creation of Daniel Machover and contributions to Doron Almog; Sabra and Shatila massacre‎ and Qibya massacre‎. Thank you, IZAK (talk) 07:22, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Pro-israeli and Pro-zionist POV pushing?[edit]

You know i find extremely funny to read above such a cry for help on this topic here, while i was on the way to ask Humus sapiens why he used wikipedia as his tool for pushing what is looking like his pro-israeli and pro-zionist agenda (time to precise that i am neither an anti-israeli nor an anti-zionist)... I reviewed some of his articles creations ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Humus_sapiens/contribs ) before coming to this conclusion, by just having a look on how he reword sentences or piece of facts to reflect his POV in its initial edits, his purpose looks more than clear for anybody objective. Quoting dubious sources like palestinefacts.org from the Zionist Organization of America as if their were credible ones, while giving biased or distorted meanings to the actions or declarations of the other side of his POV, i.e. Palestinians if anybody more...

A random example: "In December 2004, he insisted that the Palestinian goal is Israel's destruction in interview to Iran's Al-Aram television station: "At this stage there will be two states. Many years from now, there will be only one... [There are] 300 million Arabs, while Israel has only the sea behind it." Khaddoumi said his platform was endorsed by the PLO in 1974. ([1])" [BTW another nice and objective source along others for an encyclopedia...] cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Farouk_Kaddoumi&diff=8987385&oldid=7480722

Now can you explain us how the quoted declaration -from a dubious source to say the least- of that guy Khaddoumi can be translated in your words into "he insisted that the Palestinian goal is Israel's destruction", all this while you are wearing your "Countering Systemic Bias" banner (sic) and are a Wikipedia administrator? ROFL. Poor Wikipedia, you used to be more than decent before being hijacked by people with an agenda and far too much spare time to propagate their biased POV... "Encyclopedic content must be verifiable", right. :rollingeyes: (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 23:43, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

I happened to spot this whilse looking for another comment I left on your page almost a year ago (guess I'll check the page history to find it!) Anyway this comment looks like POV pushing. It attempts to discredit the source rather than exmaine the information (and MEMRI reference now is at least solid evidence the statements were made). That is means "he insisted that the Palestinian goal is Israel's destruction" is also clear. Looking at the account where this accusation came from, it has very few edits very spaced out. I'm not making an accusation, but I'd urge you to examine the users contribution and to draw your own conclusions if you haven't done so already. Sigh. Oboler (talk) 19:50, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Urgent admin intervention needed at the Hummus article[edit]

Hi Humus: My attention was drawn to the Talk:Hummus page, a dispute over your name-sake it seems, see Talk:Hummus#Hebrew/jewish/Israeli references and Talk:Hummus#RfC where some users are deploying the worst kind of blatant antisemitic and Anti-Zionist vitriol in violation of WP:HATE and WP:CIVIL, over a minor food article, yet, unbelievable. There are comments there that should be deleted on sight as well. Please check out that page and the violating editors. Thank you, IZAK (talk) 11:11, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

A note[edit]

Just a note that the criticism section of Palestine Children's Relief Fund has been removed again. You may want to improve the references if you have time. I'm not really that concerned with the content although now that I'm looking into it, I think there is good reason to have such a section. --Veritas (talk) 01:22, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Steinberg's Religiosity[edit]

Here is a new reference about Isaac Steinberg's Orthodox observance during his service in the early Lenin's government:

http://books.google.com/books?id=S0Ls8Z-Y89cC

(Read pp. 126-128, available in the Google preview)

It's a well known fact among the Yiddishist circles (to which I happen to belong). Steinberg's family, the former secretary of his New York office, and a number of other people can verify this information. Even the Russian poet Bunin mentioned in his memoirs "Окаянные дни" that Steinberg was religiously observant. Please don't delete my notion about Steinberg's Orthodoxy (or add it youself). The religious aspect of Steinberg's personality plays a significant role in his anti-Marxist version of socialism, close to Martin Buber's and Gustav Landauer's mystical anarchism. I believe, this fact is worth mentioning. Laplandian (talk) 14:45, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Ben-yehuda.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Ben-yehuda.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 23:30, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Ben-yehuda.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Ben-yehuda.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 '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.

Palestinophilia[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Palestinophilia, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Palestinophilia.

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.

Hey Humus sapiens. I would like you to weigh in on the discussion topic of "Weasel Words" on the talk page for AIPAC (talk: American Israel Public Affairs Committee).

Al-Durrah article, FYI[edit]

Please don't place this at the very top of articles as you did with Persecution of early Christians in the Roman Empire.

Jew GA Sweeps Review: On Hold[edit]

As part of the WikiProject Good Articles, we're doing sweeps to go over all of the current GAs and see if they still meet the GA criteria and I'm specifically going over all of the "Culture and Society" articles. I have reviewed Jew and believe the article currently meets the majority of the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article. In reviewing the article, I have found there are multiple issues that need to be addressed, and I'll leave the article on hold for seven days for them to be fixed. I have left this message on your talk page since you have significantly edited the article (based on using this article history tool). Please consider helping address the several points that I listed on the talk page of the article, which shouldn't take too long to fix with the assistance of multiple editors. I have also left messages on the talk pages for other editors and related WikiProjects to spread the workload around some. If you have any questions, let me know on my talk page and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 07:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Revert of my redirect of Yitzhak Grossman[edit]

Hi,

I found 2 articles about the same person. One article has a subset of the information in the second article, has a number of warnings about quality (and is frankly pretty badly written), and misspells the man's name. I redirected it to the other article.

You reverted the redirect (or at least you left me a message why the redirect was reverted).

Your message stated that maybe my edit summary was not descriptive enough. Here's what I put there: "Duplicate article. Redirected to more complete version (basically a superset of the content here)."

Here's the article that I redirected to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yitzchak_Dovid_Grossman Here's the article that I redirected: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yitzhak_Grossman

What is the appropriate action? Now we have 2 articles about the same man again. Is that a good situation?

Thanks in advance for your help. --Dfink (talk) 21:56, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Vgrossman1.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Vgrossman1.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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 16:01, 26 September 2009 (UTC).

AfD nomination of Criticism of Judaism[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Criticism of Judaism. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Criticism of Judaism (2nd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:11, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Andrei Sinyavsky.jpg[edit]

Hi,
I assume you are busy sysopping, but I had a question about a photo you set up ages ago.

[[File:Andrei Sinyavsky.jpg]]

I'm fairly new to these photo copyright issues.

The purpose of the image is to illustrate the article, Andrei Sinyavsky. The use of the image to illustrate such article(s) is considered fair use by US law because:
There is no free equivalent of the image, that can illustrate the article the same way.
The image is used in a minimal amount of articles.
The image will only be used for encyclopedic purposes.
The use of the image will increase the reader's understanding of the article significantly. The use of the fair use image in Andrei Sinyavsky is for identification of the photograph.
The image will be only used in the article(s) abovementioned.

I would like to put this author photo here:
List of Russian language novelists

Hence, "minimal number" of articles, "increase understanding", and so on.

Can the allowable article list not be expanded to include the list of novelists?

Sincerely, Varlaam (talk) 22:43, 5 September 2010 (UTC)


Disputed non-free use rationale for File:1938 Interior of Berlin synagogue after Kristallnacht.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:1938 Interior of Berlin synagogue after Kristallnacht.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 15:29, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of a section of "Persecution of Christians"[edit]

Dear sir,

I could not find your argument for the deletion of the "Later Jewish persecution of Christians" section of Persecution of Christians, done, if I am not wrong, the 29 May 2007. I can figure some reasons but I don't find them sufficient to imply a complete deletion. Besides is such an important move without rationale good practice? As I make training sessions about Wikipedia and its possible use in education, I would be very interested by your explanation or complementary information and thankful. Yours sincerely. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cercamon (talkcontribs) 14:54, 11 November 2010 (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.

File permission problem with File:Leon Pinsker.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Leon Pinsker.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

[Nicola Roxon][edit]

I put up an entry on this webpage and a user is deleting it for no reason. She isn't discussing the reasons why on the discussion board but putting up useless comments about how she "likes socks". Well, the category is for the individual's religion. She is an atheist. The categories are there to guide the encyclopaedia to provide information to the public. This allows people to reference categories. Particularly relevant in politics. Among a number of things is to allow people to do searches. I found this entry because of listening to the radio and there is a religion in politics debate. I wanted to know who is an atheist in the debate and who is religious. Also Euthanasia is a big issue and as health minister it is good to know what religion she is. It only adds to the encyclopaedia not detracting from it. Look at the entries for politics around the world. Religion is a big thing in Australian politics. Incogfrig (talk) 13:41, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

תמונה של מבצע כנפי נשרים ברזולוציה גבוהה[edit]

שלום.

אני מחפש תמונה של מבצע "כנפי נשרים" להעלאת יהודי תימן, עבור כתבה קצרה שתתפרסם בגיליון הקרוב של מגזין 'סגולה', העוסק בהיסטוריה יהודית.

ראיתי תמונה מאוד יפה שהעלית לויקיפדיה -

http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%91%D7%A5:Op_Magic_Carpet_(Yemenites).jpg

אך היא ברזולוציה שאיננה מספיקה לפרסום.

האם תוכל לשלוח לי את התמונה ברזולוציה גבוהה יותר? האם תוכל לכתוב לי את מקור התמונה?

תודה רבה, הלל אורי hillel@segulamag.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by הלל אורי (talkcontribs) 10:34, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Non-free use of File:Iudaism bez prikras 63-7.gif[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Iudaism bez prikras 63-7.gif. However, there is a concern that the use of the image on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. Details of this problem, and which specific criteria that the image may not meet, can be obtained by going to the image description page. If you feel that this image does meet those criteria, please place a note on the image description or talk page explaining why. Do not remove the {{di-fails NFCC}} tag itself.

An administrator will review this file within a few days, and having considered the opinions placed on the image page, may delete it in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion or remove the tag entirely. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Moe ε 14:06, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Yuli Daliel Letters from Prison bookcover.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Yuli Daliel Letters from Prison bookcover.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:05, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Bagel of Zion.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!
