Speedy deletion nomination of File:US Commission on Religious Freedom Hearing on Sudan, 24 September 2008.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:US Commission on Religious Freedom Hearing on Sudan, 24 September 2008.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. nn123645 (talk) 07:59, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Re:John Prendergast[edit]

Hi, large amounts of external links that serve to promote the subject of the article is considered spam and should be removed. WP:EL is a guideline for links outside of wikipedia. I don't know much about your subject, but well-referenced text serves much better to inform a reader than long lists of links. The Interior (talk) 07:29, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Just a heads up, I have removed the extraneous external links in John Prendergast as they constitute spam. See WP:NOTSOAPBOX for specific policy info. The Interior (talk) 17:54, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Okay, this was done in an effort to bring the article up to the standards of WP, please don't take it personally. Wikipedia is an encycolpedia, not a collection of links. Linking all of Mr.Prendergast's online writing and all of his YouTube videos would be appropriate for his own website, but not here. A quick read through the links on the subject of external links I supplied above would help. As to the photographs, that was inadvertent. A gallery might help with large numbers of photographs. And as to the "resume" tag, it refers to the tone of the article, which, like a resume, promotes its subject. Barrages of publications, public appearances, and honourary degrees don't really inform the reader. Please read no ill will into my edits. The Interior (talk) 03:39, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

From what I can see in Ms.Powers' page, the articles linked to are in the Bibliography, which means they (hopefully) support and expand on the main body. As for the actions of other editors, I have no idea. There are literally millions of editors on here. I'm trying to apply the guidelines of WP. These have evolved over time, so perhaps the edits you speak of were some time ago. But they are quite clear about links at this time.

From WP:Spam - Articles considered advertisements include those that are solicitations for a business, product or service, or are public relations pieces designed to promote a company or individual. Wikispam articles are usually noted for sales-oriented language and external links to a commercial website. However, a differentiation should be made between spam articles and legitimate articles about commercial entities. Blatant examples of advertising masquerading as articles can be speedily deleted by tagging the articles with. Other advertisements posted on Wikipedia can be dealt with by either proposed deletion or listing them on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. On some occasions, the content can be removed temporarily on the basis of a suspected copyright violation, since the text is often copied from another website and posted anonymously. Before trying to get an advertisement masquerading as an article deleted, please check the article's history to see if an acceptable article exists there. If so, please revert to the latest acceptable version of the article. When an article on an otherwise encyclopedic topic has the tone of an advertisement, the article can often be salvaged by rewriting it in a neutral point of view. Elements of articles about products or services with brand names can also be combined under a common topic or category to facilitate unbiased and collaborative information by including information about the competition and about different alternatives.

As you can see, one has to be careful with external linking.The Interior (talk) 04:36, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Jespah, I am an editor with the same status as yourself, not an admin. You do not need my permission to do anything to John Prendergast, nor do you need to ask me to do things. I feel the "resume" tag is justified, and will stand by it. After changes are made, I will re-evaluate. You can remove that tag at any time, you only need to justify your actions with regard to WP policy. If you feel that the tone is not promotional in nature, go forward from there. Would I be presumptuous in assuming that your account is directly related to Mr. Prendergast? i.e. his company or someone employed by it? If so, some food for thought - Conflict of Interest is a problem on Wikipedia, in the interests of being objective as possible, editors should be very careful working on articles that they have close association with. Please read WP:COI, specifically the section on Promotional article production on behalf of clients. Hopefully I've helped you with some WP groundrules, good day. The Interior (talk) 22:18, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

If you feel my edits are biased or unfair, Wikipedia has processes for dispute resolution. You can request editor assistance or request a third party to moderate. The Interior (talk) 01:03, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

John Prendergast[edit]

Yes, I do think you are being unfair and unreasonable. I told you we would edit the biography as soon as possible. Nell 02:22, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Relationship to John Prendergast?[edit]

In going over your dialogue with User:Theinterior concerning edits to the John Prendergast page, I was struck by two things you said - the first was your use of the first-person pronoun "we", rather than "I", to describe your Wikipedia editing efforts. Shared accounts are not permitted - just ones for individuals; see Wikipedia:NOSHARE. I also was curious about your comment that you couldn't make edits to the article right now because Predergast was travelling. Are you affiliated with him in some fashion? JohnInDC (talk) 12:01, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the reassurance. You might stop saying "we" when you mean "I". It will confuse other editors. As to contacting Prendergrast - by and large, the subject of a Wikipedia biography is not a good source of information for the article. Subjects have conflicts of interest, and are - except in rare cases - not deemed to be reliable sources for themselves. If you need to shore up the article (or better really, pare it down) then the way to do it is via existing reliable and verifiable third party sources. By all means, contact him if you know him, but be forewarned that really he can't serve as anything but a pointer to sound Wikipedia sources. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 12:45, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
Hey, can you clarify something else? You told Theinterior here that you didn't work for The Enough project, but here (for example - there are others) you have uploaded photos that seem to say that they are both the property of The Enough Project and that you took them yourself. If you *do* work for The Enough Project then you probably have a WP:Conflict of interest; and if you don't, then you can't be uploading their material. Are the photo sources misstated somehow? Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 13:48, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Your contributed article, The Enough Moment: Fighting to End Africa's Worst Human Rights Crimes[edit]

Imbox notice.png

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, The Enough Moment: Fighting to End Africa's Worst Human Rights Crimes. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Not On Our Watch. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Not On Our Watch - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, 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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Acather96 (talk) 19:48, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Response to Duplicate article[edit]

Hi, Actually, not a duplicate. I mis-labeled it Not On Our Watch but has been corrected to The Enough Moment... Thank you! Nell 19:54, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Lisa J. Shannon[edit]

hi, could really use help with this tag to Lisa Shannon's profile page.:

This article is an orphan, as few or no other articles link to it. Please introduce links to this page from related articles; suggestions are available. (September 2010)

thank you! Nell 19:57, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

If it has incoming links you can remove the tag yourself, that's fine. Rich Farmbrough, 01:51, 6 October 2010 (UTC).

File permission problem with File:ShannonLisa.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:ShannonLisa.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:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. 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 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.

External links[edit]

Nell, one of the reasons we are having circular arguments about this is that you are thinking that removing extraneous external links is my initiative. It is not. It is part of maintaining the encyclopedia. I worry that, although I have linked it for you several times, you have not read WP:EL. You are exercising ownership of this article. You really need to start working on other articles to get a better feel for how WP works. That other articles have exlinks problems is not a valid point. These sections expand and contract over time as inappropriate links are added, accrue, and then are trimmed back. Part of the "ecology" of this site. I really must advise that you think about WP as an encyclopedia, and not just another website. Your behaviour is borderline problematic, and you have made statements in the past that indicate a conflict of interest. Nasty messages to my talkpage won't really achieve much. And please fix your signature, you have taken the link for your talkpage out and it really makes communication difficult. The Interior (Talk) 21:37, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

?[edit]

I don't know what you are referring to re my signature.

You did not answer my questions.

When two editors have different opionions about what is allowed and what isn't....

As I stated previously, some of the links posted were placed there by a Wiki editor.

I was not being nasty; I was being incredibly frustrated and disgusted with your editing, which I find problematic!!!!!

I have notified the mediation committee about your editing.

Your critique of my behavior is subjective and of no value to me!

Are you threatening me! Nell 22:07, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

  • First, no threats. I'm sorry if it came off that way - I was just pointing out some problem areas.
  • Second, the signature thing. I think the problem is this: In your "Preferences" page, you have to include a link in your customized signature. Find the tab called "user profile". In the box labeled "Signature", paste this text:
    [[User:Jespah|Nell]] [[User Talk:Jespah|(Talk)]]
    Click the box below labeled "Treat the above as Wiki markup". Then Save your changes, and it should be fixed. You can add all sorts of things to it you want.
  • Third, the mediation thing. The Mediation Committee handles large cases involving many editors. I don't know if you'll get a response there. You probably want a third opinion or editor assistance, there is also the external links noticeboard. But honestly, this is something that could be solved by us having a discussion about the relevant guideline, WP:EL. A good article doesn't need many external links. The section is there for content that can't be put into the article for various reasons. It's not a place to list all of the links to a public person's many media appearances. But we've talked on this before, I'm not sure if this is productive. It's a free encyclopedia, so do as you wish. The Interior (Talk) 02:41, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Nell - your messages at User talk:The Interior are borderline personal attacks and need to stop. From everything I have read here, on The Interior's talk page, and at Talk:John Prendergast, reveals a user who is trying to point out various guidelines and policies to you in a calm and sincere manner and you are responding with accusations and anger. You need to take a step back and read the advice you have been given. I see that a discussion regarding the External Links has been started on the talk page, yet you have not even edited there since 2009. You do not own the article, and you cannot control what does and does not appear on the page; what you can do is provide your input and rationale on the article talk page so consensus can be determined with regard to what should and should not be included. Please do so, and do not continue to simply revert to your preferred version until consensus regarding the appropriateness of the links is determined. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 18:51, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Unlikely Brothers.gif[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Unlikely Brothers.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 "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.

Fair use rationale for File:Unlikely Brothers.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Unlikely Brothers.gif. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file 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 '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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Unlikely Brothers[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Unlikely Brothers requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Nima1024 (talk) 18:49, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

James Downey (comedian)[edit]

Did you read this reference? NBC.com It is from his employer, and seems to be pretty clear. Are you sure your personal info is correct?[1] The Interior (Talk) 22:04, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

James Downey and NBC quote[edit]

Believe it or not, NBC IS WRONG!!! The Jim Downey I know did, indeed, appear on SNL. He, however, is not the James Downey credited for writing much of SNL's political humor, not a long-time staff writer, not a writer for the Letterman show, etc.

I have known the Robert Downey family and Jim Downey for many years.

From NBC: James Downey is the brother of film director Robert Downey Sr. and the uncle of actor Robert Downey Jr., but is famous in his own right. Although Downey was a featured played for only one season, and has shown up as a performer on SNL over the years in mainly small roles, he is a long-time staff writer and is often credited for writing much of SNL's political humor.

Interesting. Let's discuss this at the Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard#Jim Downey (comedian) where I have started a discussion. Thanks. The Interior (Talk) 22:28, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Satellite Sentinel Project[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Satellite Sentinel Project, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://satsentinel.org/about.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

File source problem with File:Satellite image of the burning of Tajalei, March 6, 2011, Credit- DigitalGlobe.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Satellite image of the burning of Tajalei, March 6, 2011, Credit- DigitalGlobe.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 website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 01:35, 21 March 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 01:35, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Prendergast headshot.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Prendergast headshot.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.

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:SUDANNOW.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:SUDANNOW.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.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. 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:Non-free content, 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 created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 02:45, 5 May 2011 (UTC).

Speedy deletion nomination of SUDAN NOW[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on SUDAN NOW requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. UtherSRG (talk) 17:06, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of your own images[edit]

In the future, instead of creating files for deletion discussions about your own images that you'd like deleted, simply add {{db-author}} to the top of the image files. This will allow an administrator to come along and speedily delete the images without having to deal with the discussion page. Thank you. GorillaWarfare talkcontribs 05:21, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

SUDAN NOW[edit]

Doubting this will meet with Wikipedia's criteria but thought I would ask, just in case. Sudan Now has had a behind-the-scenes impact.

Would the following meet Wiki standards?

Endorsement and embracement by major groups as justification for notability - AJWS announcement of joining, SDC, GI-NET, SGN/i-ACT, IAG, HU, plus occasionally joined by HRW or Crisis Action.

There is no official documentation saying that Sudan Now moved the administration to act on Sudan. There is anecdotal evidence and one could claim cause and effect.

Below are a few Sudan advocacy organizations, to learn more and get involved:

___________________________________________________________________________

Citation of press received through George Clooney?

You can probably answer your own questions if you take a look at WP:reliable and WP:verifiable and consider whether anecdotal evidence, or endorsements by like-minded advocacy groups, can be shoehorned into those general sourcing requirements. Also, a question like this is going to draw next to no attention from other editors if posted here - perhaps four or five, max, watch your Talk page. Try at WP:EAR (for instance), which will have a much larger audience. JohnInDC (talk) 18:45, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. --Jespah (talk) 19:09, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

3RR notice[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Satellite Sentinel Project. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. JohnInDC (talk) 20:33, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't this apply to you? --Jespah (talk) 21:12, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
It would have, if I'd kept it up. Even if you had stuck with the GlobalPost reprint of the press release, I was not going to revert you again and subject myself to the rule as well. Instead I'd probably have returned to WP:EAR, noted your actions, and urged someone else to weigh in. JohnInDC (talk) 21:25, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Your addition to Ryan Gosling has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other websites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of article content such as sentences or images. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. The Interior (Talk) 21:11, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Is it acceptable to use the material as a quote? --Jespah 23:11, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia really isn't the place to be reproducing PR of advocacy organizations. As I've noted before, just because you can reproduce copyrighted material doesn't mean that you should. I think too that in this case, so much attention to this one thing would run afoul of WP:UNDUE. JohnInDC (talk) 01:09, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

To someone who is unfamiliar with your background, "I was asked by The Enough Project to add the information about George and SSP. I edit Enough's wiki pages" (diff here) sounds like you are in the employ of Enough Project and edit Wikipedia pages on its behalf. I've explained at the COI Noticeboard that the association is in fact likely only an informal one and thus technically not a conflict of interest under Wikipedia guidelines.

Hi Jespah. The outcome of this discussion is that you are indefinitely prohibited from editing or discussing the articles John Prendergast, Unlikely Brothers, Satellite Sentinel Project, Enough Project, Not On Our Watch, and The Enough Moment. You are also prohibited from editing or discussing articles insofar as the edits or discussions concern John Prendergast, Unlikely Brothers, Satellite Sentinel Project, Enough Project, Not On Our Watch or The Enough Moment. You are of course more than welcome to edit articles unrelated to these topics. Doing so in a collaborative manner and in accordance with site policies would be the best way of having your prohibition lifted in the future. --Mkativerata (talk) 07:26, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
