A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Ians18. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. However, some of your edits don't exactly conform to the style of Wikipedia, and other editors may have reverted some of them already. Still, don't be discouraged! If you read some of the basic rules of Wikipedia, you'll probably get along much better with the other users and have have less trouble with your edits. If I were to sum up the rules for editing in one basic sentence, I would say that edits have to non-biased, verifiable, and free—that is to say, not copy-righted by somebody else. Also, I've listed some links below to more pages about how to edit Wikipedia.

If you want to experiment with formatting a page, you can click the Show Preview button on the editing page to make sure it turns out right, or you can test formatting (or anything, for that matter) in the Sandbox.

Remember that most images out on the web, such as company logos, are usually copyrighted. If you upload an image to Wikipedia, remember to accurately list the image's source (Did you create it, did it come from a webpage that allows people to freely use their images, etc.). Otherwise, the image tends to get deleted fairly quickly. You can't copy and paste copyrighted text from elsewhere on the web onto Wikipedia either. By keeping Wikipedia clean of material that is copyrighted, we can make sure that everyone can use Wikipedia for whatever purpose without breaking copyright.

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

Lastly: one minor point. Many editors tend to dislike long or excessive plot summaries of books, TV shows, or movies. The thing is, Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia, and we're trying to sound like an encyclopedia: concise, and not over-promoting other stuff out there. Still, like I said, don't let all the rules in Wikipedia discourage you! It may take many years to fully know every obscure niche in the rulebook, but the best way to know how to edit a page and make it sound good it just to look at how other articles are written.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Altamel (talk) 21:00, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

September 2011[edit]

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Windows 8. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Jasper Deng (talk) 02:47, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Reliable sourcing[edit]

Windows 8 News and Youtube are not reliable sources. Also, per our manual of style, please do not refer to the reader (like saying "you can"), use proper grammar, and do not add original research (your own research). Thank you.Jasper Deng (talk) 17:41, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cyberchase, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hacker (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Replaceable fair use File:SurfaceFamily.png.jpg.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:SurfaceFamily.png.jpg.png. 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. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 05:46, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:SurfaceFamily.png.jpg.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:SurfaceFamily.png.jpg.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:44, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
