Disambiguation link notification for February 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Johann Georg Elser, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page SIS (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. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

March 2014[edit]

Hello Iantomferry, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Santorini has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. 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. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help: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.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • 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. Dougweller (talk) 21:46, 8 March 2014 (UTC) Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Art Gallery of New South Wales may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it.

Convince me I shouldn't block you for copyright violations[edit]

I'm sorry, but I have warned you before about copyright violations. I just looked at Wikipedia:Articles for creation/Cycladic architecture and it was all copied from either [1] or other Wikipedia articles without attribution. Please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. I've deleted it, which is in one sense a shame as you worked hard on it. You've got the will and the energy but you really must respect our policies and guidelines. Just to clarify one thing about another article you are working on, sources need to be reliably published so that editors can verify them. Take a good look at WP:RS and WP:VERIFY. So you can't use material someone gave you but hasn't been published. Dougweller (talk) 14:29, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

I've replied on my talk page but you have said nothing that shows that you understand our copyright policy. Dougweller (talk) 19:09, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Sure, you can begin it again. Just follow our policies including the one about copying material. The main thing is probably to make sure that you have academic sources for each bit that call whatever you are talking about cycladic architecture. Dougweller (talk) 22:12, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Wait until tomorrow, I'll restore what I can. I don't understand the purpose of the list of islands. Dougweller (talk) 22:16, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
Done. A few comments. Tourist guides will often be rejected as sources. You might want a new title, eg "Architecture of the Cycladic Islands" as the current title might be confused with Cycladic art - see some of the sources here[2]. Some of your entries - quite a few, don't discuss architecture but just name islands - they really don't belong. AfC has some really good reviewers but the occasional inexperienced one, and passing AfC is not a guarantee it's a good article - I've seen AfC approved articles that had considerable copyvio or sources that don't pass our criteria. The subject itself is clearly notable, so you don't have to worry about that, but all the text needs to relate to the subject (as do the sources). Hope this helps.

Possibly unfree File:MONA Hobart red car sculpture.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:MONA Hobart red car sculpture.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you object to the listing for any reason. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:32, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

I have been in contact with MONA. They express no copyright infringement, but advise: Over the next month or so, we will be taking a more hands-on approach to the wiki site, as some of what has been posted already, is incorrect. With that in mind, you can leave the image you have posted, however it may be likely replaced with one of ours soon. Thanks for the courtesy of checking with us. As long as you attribute the image to yourself and credit it accordingly, then that should be fine for now. Cheers, Jane Menzies MONA Iantomferry (talk) 03:57, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
