Battleboxes[edit]

I wrote up four proposals for improvements to the battlebox that would address your concerns about "battle before" and "battle after" in battleboxes. Please take a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Battles/Battleboxes and comment at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Battles. Gdr 17:40, 2004 Nov 5 (UTC)

Admin nomination[edit]

Hi, I thought you deserved to be nominated for an admin, if you haven't been before. Let me know if you don't want me to. - Taxman 18:03, Nov 9, 2004 (UTC)

Well after a bit of a delay due to the moratorium, I have now nominated you. I certainly think you would make a great admin. - Taxman 22:41, Nov 11, 2004 (UTC)

Economy of Ireland[edit]

I've tried to address your (many) comments on WP:FAC - note the articles title has been changed to Economy of the Republic of Ireland. I hope your satisfied - please alter your objection if you are. CGorman 22:56, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)

FAC[edit]

I see you often oppose featured article candidates. And I'm curious. Has there ever been an article, you haven't been involved in, you supported straight away? [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 13:19, Nov 12, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll start digging as soon as I can find the time. Please contact me if you remember an article title :-) [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 15:35, Nov 15, 2004 (UTC)

ADMINSHIP - IMPORTANT!![edit]

Jeronimo, you were proposed for adminship a week ago and it will pass on consensus but you MUST accept or reject it or the nomination will have to be deleted. I will leave it up for an extra day to give you a chance to respond. See WP:RFA. -- Cecropia | explains it all ® 21:40, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hey Jeronimo - just say the word and I'll promote you. →Raul654 07:41, Nov 19, 2004 (UTC)


Congratulations! It's my pleasure to let you know that you are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. You might find the new administrators' how-to guide helpful.

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started the Free the Rambot Articles Project which has the goals of getting users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to...

  1. ...all U.S. state, county, and city articles...
  2. ...all articles...

using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) version 1.0 and 2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to the GFDL (which every contribution made to Wikipedia is licensed under), but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles (See the Multi-licensing Guide for more information). Since you are among the top 1000 most active Wikipedians, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles.

Nutshell: Wikipedia articles can be shared with any other GFDL project but open/free projects using the incompatible Creative Commons Licenses (e.g. WikiTravel) can't use our stuff and we can't use theirs. It is important to us that other free projects can use our stuff. So we use their licenses too.

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} template (or {{MultiLicensePD}} for public domain) into their user page, but there are other templates for other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} with {{MultiLicensePD}}. If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know at my talk page what you think. -- Ram-Man 21:16, Nov 29, 2004 (UTC)

Bernard Williams[edit]

Jeronimo, thanks for your comments on the Bernard Williams nomination for featured article. I wanted to ask you what you meant by there being no references, only links. I'm going to try to address all the objections with the next day or so, so any clarification would be appreciated. Many thanks, Slim 17:07, Nov 30, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply, Jeronimo. I couldn't find how to add the copyright information on the image pages. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious -- I'll take another look. Anyway, the Williams one is open for use, and the Kant and Nietzsche are expired. Regarding references, I will add another list. Thank you for the help. Best, Slim 22:13, Nov 30, 2004 (UTC)
Jeronimo, it's done. References have been added to article; and copyright information to image pages. Slim 23:11, Nov 30, 2004 (UTC)

Candy Broad FAC[edit]

Thanks for your comments on that article - I'll see what I can do about the second and third points, but I'm afraid I can't do much about the first one. She's just a politician - no one's ever written a biography of her, and every detail I could find about her life outside of politics is in that article. I might be able to find whether she's married or has children, but that's about it. Do you think it's a big enough problem not to feature the article? I'll withdraw the nomination if you think so.

User:Michael Stonebraker[edit]

Hello,

Please help me figure out what's going on at User:Michael Stonebraker.

There is an article about Stonebraker (and that's all fine). But it seems that someone has also created a user-page for Michael Stonebraker. You moved some page to that user-page in 2002. The "user" has never contributed anything, and judging from that revision history of the "user" page, I think it looks like something went wrong at some point. TroelsArvin 22:49, 12 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Bossa Nova[edit]

I don't think the article will be featured any time soon, but I was wondering about your first objection: An article about music needs one or more sound samples to get featured. So far, I haven't seen any sound samples in music articles, not even in hip hop, which is featured according to the nomninator of The Supremes. Can you point me to a page where I can find this discussed? Mgm|(talk) 08:50, Jan 20, 2005 (UTC)

Steve Dalkowski[edit]

Addressed some of your concerns (I'm a little uncertain on the copyright status of that trading card, though... fair use?) and replied to others. Am working on getting some book references added very shortly. He played one game during spring training in the Major Leagues so I guess there may be stats somewhere but I can't find them... I'll keep looking but is it worth it? Throwing speed is discussed in a sub section, do you think it needs to be made clearer?

Still waiting for the Orioles to write back... I'm not particularly hopeful they'll do so but you never know. Maybe APBA would be a better bet...

Thank you for your comments they where very helpful.

Hello. Your objection on Penda of Mercia's FA nomination is the only one remaining. Of your objections, it would appear that all but the 4th objection have been addressed; I feel that one is not really actionable because the period is very obscure and very little is certain about any of the information in the article. Would you mind reconsidering your vote? Everyking 04:17, 24 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Neutral Wikipedia?[edit]

Dear Wikipedia administrator

I am writting you about the issue of Macedonia, Republic of Macedonia, Macedonian Slavs (like Wikipedia calls the Macedonians) and the problem between Macedonia and Greece about the term Macedonia. I am aware that this issue is largely discussed here, at Wikipedia, and Wikipedia claims that it is trying to take a neutral side. But, that is not the case. Wikipedia is everything except neutral in this question. In the following lines I will explain you why.

From the text in Wikipedia most of the people will conclude that Macedonian nation appeared during the World War 2 and Tito was the one who 'invented' us. The family of my wife (she is Mexican) read this and asked me is it truth. That was actually the first time I read what Wikipedia says about my nation, which was a direct reason for my reaction. My grandfather is born in 1911th. Yesterday I had a talk with him. He took a part in the strugle for independence since 1925th and he took a part in the 2nd world war. He is alive and personal prove that Wikipedia is full of bullshit and lies about our origin. He spent half of his life proving and fighting for that. He was shot 3 times, all 3 from the Bulgarians who wanted to ocupy Macedonia in the Balkan wars and in the WW1 and WW2. Just a 1 min with him will show you how many lies you suport in Wikipedia.

I tried to edit some of the text few days ago, but everithing I wrote was deleted. And all I wrote were facts. Fact 1. Macedonians (or Macedonian Slavs, like ONLY Wikipedia, Greece and Cyprus calls us) is the only nation of many living in the area concentrated inside the borders of the geographical region of Macedonia. This is a pure fact, something that you can even find on the CIA web page. Can you give any fact to deny my fact? If you can not, why you erased it from Wikipedia? Fact 2. Republic of Macedonia has diplomatic relations with about 150 countries in the world. Wikipedia says that "at least 20" countries recognize Macedonia under the name Macedonia. Guess what? That number is more than 100. And this is an officially confirmed by our ministery for foreighn affairs. Fact 3. Wikipedia says that my country Contraversialy calls itself Republic of Macedonia. This is a pure example of taking a side in the problem. Why you don't say that Greece contraversialy deny us the use of the name Macedonia? If you intended to be neutral, just write that we have the naming problem with Greece, but do not call my name "contraversial"!!! Fact 4. While explaining about the antient Macedonia, its kings etc. you highly support the claim for their Greek origin. I can give you 1000s of facts that that is not truth and I beleive that some Greek guy can give you 1000s facts that those claims are truth. That was 2400 years ago and there is no chanse for us to know the real situation. We can only guess. But, when you give the Greek suported version, why you ignore the version suported by the newaged Macedonians? In this moment I can give you 10 names of internationally respected scientist supporting our theory. If you are neutral, why you ignore it? Fact 5. Wikipedia says that the Turkish Empire were calling us Bulgarians. Strange, because the Turks were recognizing the uniqueness of our nation since the moment they occupied the teritory of Macedonia. Actually, the Turkish history archives are the biggest prove of our existance, history and culture. Did anyone of you ever read anything from those archives? Even on the birth certificate of Khemal Ataturk says that he is born in Bitola, Macedonia. And his autobiography is full of memories of his childhood spend with the Macedonians. Fact 6. Wikipedia ignores the egsodus of the Macedonian people from Greece and says they were running because they were supporters of the comunists. 1/3 of the Macedonians have origin from this part of Macedonia. They were runned away from there by force and you can find many historical proves for that. Again, big part of my family has origin from there. As a matter of fact, my grand-grand father was married to a Greek woman, my grand-grand mother. But, no matter of that, his house was burned and he was forced to run away for his life and the life of his family. How dare you deny this? Do you know that even today my grand father is not allowed to visit Greece, because he was a kid when his family runned away from there? Fact 7. There are about 500 000 Macedonians that live outside Macedonia, mostly in Canada, Australia, USA, Sweden etc. At least 1/3 moved there before 1930s. If we were a product of Tito, how can you explain that even they feel of Macedonian nationality? I have a family in USA which moved there in 1927th. Their ancestors (my cousins) do not even know how to talk Macedonian well. But, they still feel Macedonian. One of them is even one of the financiers of the party of the Macedonians in Bulgaria, trying to help their strugle to keep their national identity. I repeat, first time he visited Macedonia was in 1995th, far after Tito. And his family moved in USA in 1927th, far before Tito. Fact 8. Wikipedia claims that the book of Macedonian songs by Dimitar Miladinov is actually Bulgarian. Have you maybe seen a original copy of the book, printed in Croatia? IT says clearly "Macedonian". Not to mention that the same author wrote one of the most important books in the Macedonian history "For the Macedonian issues", again printed in Croatia, where it clearly talks about the Macedonian nation and non-Bulgarian origin.

All this was simply erased from the database. I didn't erase anything when editing these pages, I support the other side and I do not want to hide their facts. But why Wikipedia wants to hide our facts, which show that we are not a product of Tito's ambitions for the Aegean Sea. In Tito's time, the Yugoslav army was far superior in the region. If he wanted the Aegean Sea, he would get it very easily.

Many things in Wikipedia are very offensive for the nowdays Macedonians. Wikipedia simply ignores us, gives us a new name and supports the theories of denial of our existance, culture and history.

I will try to give you an example that includes with Mexico. I beleive that you know that the Maya civilisation was invaded by the Spanish kingdom. Spanish were ruling Mexico for centuries and millions of Spanish people moved at Mexican teritory. Later, after the liberation war, Mexicans formed its own country. Fact 1. Mayas were living in Mexico (same as Antique Macedonians). Fact 2. Spanish invaded them and great number of Spanish people moved to Mexico (The Slavs moved on the theritory of Macedonia and there was no reported fights or movements of people away from the teritory where the Slavs settled). Fact 3. Nowdays, everyone of the Mexican is aware that they are partly Spanish, but they still have Mayan origin (Wikipedia says that the people living in Republic of Macedonia are Slavs. When there was no reported resetling of the Antique Macedonians, how is possible they not to mix with the Slavs? It is a fact that the nowdays Macedonians are not same as the Antique Macedonians, but they certanly have a significant part of their genes. Same as I beleive that Greece has a part of their Genes, but they are definitly not their direct ancestors). Fact 4. Mexican speak Spanish. Reason: The Spanish culture was superior in that time. (The Antique Macedonians accepted the Helenic culture, including a variation of the Greek language. Reason: the Helenic culture was superior in that time. Everyone who knows at least little history will know that Hellenic and Greek are not synonims. Greek is nation, Hellenic is religion/culture. USA and England both speak English, both are mostly cristians, but they are SEPARATE nations. Aren't they? Same happens to Germany and Austria, or Serbia and Croatia, or Canada and France, or Brazil and Portugal, or the rest of Latin America and Spain)

And here is a comment about the claims of the Bulgarians, that the Macedonians are actually Bulgarians. If that is truth, I am going to kill myself. Bulgarians through the history made the worst for my nation. During the strugle of the Macedonian people for independence from the Turkish empire, at the end of the 19th and begginbing of the 20th century, the Bulgarians were the ones who killed the most of our revolutionaries, including 4 members of my close family which were members of the Macedonian revolutionary organization (VMRO). Whis is not something that I was told by Tito. My grandfather (the same grandfather from above) was in fact a member of the same organization. He personaly knew many of the revolutioners that Bulgarians claim are theirs, including 2 of the leaders: Goce Delcev and Gorce Petrov. They were Macedonians and they all gave their lives for free and independent Macedonia and they had nothing to do with Bulgaria. There was a part of them who were Bulgarians inserted in the organizations, who were actually the killers of the real Macedonian revolutioners, because it was in Bulgarian interest to weaken the organization, so they could take the lead in the organization and later put Macedonia in the hands of the Bulgarians. Thanks god, they did not succeed. Wikipedia claims that VMRO was pro-Bulgarian and the revolutioners were Bulgarian fighters. You suposed to see the face of my 94 year old grandfather when I told him your claims. Neurtal Wikipedia? I do not think so.

At the end I have to ask for Wikipedia NOT TO TAKE A SIDE IN THIS. I am not asking to remove the Greek and Bulgarian side of the story. But, why you ignore our claims, which are suported by many non-Greek and non-Bulgarian scientists and very largely through the web. There are just about 2-2.5 million Macedonians around the world. We do not have enought influence and strenght as Greece has, which is much more powerful and richer country than Macedonia. The Macedonian-Greek question is too hard and too complicated to solve. History can be interpreted in 1000 ways, especially on a teritory like the Balcany, where there are so many nations on so little space. Fortunately, DNA testings are getting more and more reliable and soon it will be possible to be used to acuratelly show the origin of our nations. I hope that then the denyal of me, my history, culture and existance will finaly stop. It is very disapointing that Wikipedia takes a part in all that.

With all the respect, Igor Šterbinski Skopje, Macedonia is@on.net.mk

Image Tagging Image:Spiridon louis.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Spiridon louis.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.

Image Tagging Image:Coubertin.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Coubertin.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.

Functional programming FAC nomination[edit]

Aside from the FAC page itself, I just wanted to thank you for you very helpful and well-thought comments. They all (well, all but one) look like good points that I'll try to work on, as hopefully will other editors.

I actually nominated two somewhat related articles at the same time, FP and Programming language. It's a not-very-interesting back story on why I did it that way; but in any case I've been looking at both sets of comments. I find it frustrating when editors make comment that gives no direction whatsoever: for example, on PL, one editor objected simply on the basis the article was the CS "collaboration of the week"; once the expired COTW tag was removed, s/he struck out that single point, and objected "just because". I don't mind or care if editors object to an FAC nomination I happened to make... I just don't see the point of "commenting" without any actual comment.

...in contrast, yours was very specific, and quite "actionable". Overall, just wonderful to see. LotLE×talk 17:04, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Smarino.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Smarino.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 them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 17:05, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Bears FAC[edit]

I've read your objections to the article and I will try to my best ability to improve the article on the points you have pointed out. I do have one comment to make to you at this point, the idea of having a current roster section is apart of the template on all NFL articles, not my idea, and all team sports articles including feature ones such as Arsenal F.C., New England Patriots, Manchester City F.C., and IFK Göteborg all have a current roster listed on them.

Thank you --Happyman22 20:29, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Re:Darjeeling[edit]

Hi Jeronimo, in response to your FAC comments - Breaking up those sections will make them too short and throw the format out of order. They have been grouped on basis of similar topics - "Government and utilities" are closely linked, as are "Geography and climate," "Economy and transport." I've fixed the population notation and shortened the external links. Please take another look at the article. Cheers, Rama's arrow 21:15, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

Welcome!

Hi, and welcome to the Countries WikiProject! As you may have guessed, we're a group of editors working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of counties.


There are a variety of interesting things to do within the project; you're free to participate however much—or little—you like:

  • Starting some new articles? See some model pages such as Cambodia!
  • Want to know how good our articles are? The assessment department is working on rating the quality of every country article in Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask another fellow member, and we'll be happy to help you. Again, welcome! We look forward to seeing you around! Shy1520 10:26, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Two Olympians[edit]

I added an image to the F. Morgan Taylor article which I believe you wrote, and added a comment to the discussion page on Jim Thorpe. My father, Hap Moran had associations with both men, and it was especially great to see the Taylor article included. My question on the Thorpe article regarded the statement that none of his biographers knew about the World Famous Indian basketball teams - it's still at the bottom of the discussion page. I had spoken to a number of people over the years about the WFI basketball team - I think people knew about it but never thought it was a big deal until the NY Times picked up the story on the 1927 ticket found in an old book and later featured on the History Detectives.

A request for assistance[edit]

Would you support the concept of moving the Earhart "myths" to a separate page or article? The reason for my suggesting this is that the main article should be an accurate and scholarly work while the speculation and conspiracy theories surrounding the disappearance of Amelia Earhart are interesting, they belong in a unique section. Most researchers, as you know, discount the many theories and speculation that has arisen in the years following her last flight. Go onto the Earhart discussion page and register your vote/comments...and a Happy New Year to you as well. Bzuk 02:50 3 January 2007 (UTC).

If Jean Jacoby died in 1936, why is his work still a copyright work? I thought, that 70 years after an artist's death a work will change automaticly into public domain?

Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg[edit]

Hello Jeronimo, an automated process has found an image or media file tagged as nonfree media, such as fair use. The image (Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg) was found at the following location: User talk:Jeronimo. This image or media will be removed per statement number 9 of our non-free content policy. The image or media will be replaced with Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg , so your formatting of your userpage should be fine. The image that was replaced will not be automatically deleted, but it could be deleted at a later date. Articles using the same image should not be affected by my edits. I ask you to please not readd the image to your userpage and could consider finding a replacement image licensed under either the Creative Commons or GFDL license or released to the public domain. Thanks for your attention and cooperation. User:Gnome (Bot)-talk 07:54, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine, by Black Falcon, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine fits the criteria for speedy deletion for the following reason:

G6 (housekeeping). This is a cross-namespace redirect that exists only because the page was initially created in the wrong namespace. It was moved to Wikipedia:Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine in 2002, but that target was subsequently redirected to Wikipedia:Searching. The target page was deleted yesterday (per CSD G6) as being an obsolete and unused page and a *highly* implausible search term (p ≈ 0). The page has no useful history (the pagemove is not useful as the target was already deleted) and no incoming links, except from lists of pages from database dumps and one talk page (User talk:Simon J Kissane) where you can find the deletion rationale for Wikipedia:Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine. Given these circumstances, I feel that deletion qualifies as "housekeeping" per CSD G6 and does not require a RfD.


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Wikipedia commentary/Search Engine itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 17:00, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Cover FBK bio.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cover FBK bio.jpg. 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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 06:57, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Offspring[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Offspring, by MBFMETAL (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Offspring seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Offspring, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 07:40, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Coa north brabant.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Coa north brabant.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. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 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 non-free media 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. — Κaiba 01:21, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:1896 100 m.png[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:1896 100 m.png. 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}} 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 17:53, 28 July 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Papa November 1 17:53, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Valeri Borzov.gif)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:Valeri Borzov.gif. 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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Papa November (talk) 11:26, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jakko Jan Leeuwangh[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jakko Jan Leeuwangh has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

BLP unsourced for years.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. –Juliancolton | Talk 14:18, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon/Charmander listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Pokemon/Charmander. Since you had some involvement with the Pokemon/Charmander redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so). Mhiji 18:17, 12 January 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.

File:Lottie Dod.jpg needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Lottie Dod.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Jeronimo}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:29, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Lottie Dod.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Lottie Dod.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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:30, 3 July 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)
