Please come back when the time is right[edit]

Hey Jt - I noticed that you blanked your page... :( I'm also embarrassed to say that I only now just read what your user page said before it was blanked - even though you wrote that back in November. Truth is, that over the last couple years I've transitioned from wikiholism to workaholism and devote minimal time to Wikipedia and since the middle of last year, the foundation. As with you, I don't have time to do much vandal fighting - The only articles I watch are the ones I helped to get featured and my major contributions of late are in trying to improve those articles to current FA standards when they come up for FAR. But, I don't much worry about most of the other articles I've contributed to since my experience over five years (wow - it really has been that long) is that articles of mediocre and lessor quality either stay about the same or improve slowly. Rarely do they significantly degrade for long.

However, as you rightly state, above average and great articles must be watched closely to prevent degradation to mediocrity. That is why I have great hope that the long-sought stable version feature will help us keep quality edits by periodically recognizing good versions; any new edits would have to be compared to the previous stable version before a new stable version is marked. I truly hope that that will give us the edge we need to much more easily defend great content from being edited into mediocrity . When that day comes I hope you can find the time to come back and help us in this most noble of endeavors. Until then, your edits and your presence will be greatly missed by me and I'm sure by many others. Hopefully, those damn annoying bots will be fixed by then as well. :)

Your friend,

Just dropped by[edit]

Hi. Just dropped in to say hello in case you are listening. I've got plenty of "issues" with wikipedia at the moment, and often wish you were still here so I could share them with you. Deb (talk) 12:16, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Mav, Deb and the others who have been in contact.

I must admit that I miss posting enormously. I loved Wikipedia. But towards the end the bot madness just drove me to frustration. I was a prolific poster and as such added in thousands of articles and hundreds of images. It was the images issue that bugged me. I'd upload images using the rules that existed, only to find that one set of templates had been abandoned and a new set, and a new set of rules, introduced. So I'd go through the images again, and then find six months later they'd changed again.

It was one thing when users were contracting people to point out problems with images. But it was quite another when the bot madness started and longstanding posters found their pages absolutely jammed with messages accusing them of using the wrong categorisation when they had used the correct one at the time. I just got fed up, especially when bots were informing me that images that were 100% with the right categorisation were still wrong simply because the technical command used for a graphic had now been changed by it, not by me. If people insist on continually changing rules then it should be THEIR responsibility to fix the problems THEIR decisions cause, rather than having bots blaming people who were innocent of anything.

Most of us posting in my group and my area just got completely fed up and left. Often I would only be back occasionally to check an article, only to find more ludicrous bot messages all over. Sometimes I lost the head completely - I suppose the posts just reminded me of all the frustration I had felt when I ended up leaving. I posted some rather strong comments *blush*. Apologies to anyone who was offended. (I noticed how one person who complained about by use of the f-word to reply to one particularly pointless bot message saying that I should have uploaded something to Commons even though Commons did not take those sort of images at the time the picture was uploaded, a few months later posted back to say that now HE had been hit by the bot madness over a rule change that meant his images were now all wrong and he was accused of putting in wrong templates, and now he realised just how frustrated I felt. He, as I and countless others did, just left the project.)

Anyway, as I said, thank you to everyone for posting supportive comments. I really do miss posting, but I just cannot be bothered dealing with the bot madness any more. I just felt like rolling my eyes when I got a bot message saying that a picture I took of a 100 year old newspaper that ceased to be published before anyone here was born, had copyright problems, when the only problem was that, yet again, the correct tag to use when in 2005 I uploaded the image is now incorrect because a new one has been created, throwing the thousands of images uploaded under the old tag into limbo. I was tempted in frustration to go and delete all the hundreds of images I created, but didn't. lol. But I am not fixing anything. So don't bother posting for me to do it. If images go into limbo because of someone else's decision on changing tags and templates, that is their problem. And if perfectly valid images are deleted and articles turned into a mess, that is their responsibility. I pointed out that problem repeatedly while I was here. I was the one constantly urging that Wikipedia set out rigid rules on images from day 1. That didn't happen, and the result has been a complete mess which I and the others now being blamed for are not going to fix. If Wikipedia had done what we urged years ago, there would not be a problem now.

Enough said. Take care everyone. Thanks for the support. FearÉIREANNIreland-up.png\(caint) 06:27, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns.

User talk:Sussexman[edit]

Hi. That editor was blocked by you in 2006 over a legal threat that seems to have been retracted by now, or at least the threatened editor now supports the user's unblock. Could you take a look at the talk page and consider whether or not he's fit to be unblocked, possibly with conditions? Sandstein (talk) 18:58, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Irish Unionist Alliance[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Irish Unionist Alliance, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 17:01, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Joseph Ratzinger[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Joseph Ratzinger, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do. Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

AfD nomination of Irish Unionist Alliance[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Irish Unionist Alliance, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. 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 "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 by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Irish Unionist Alliance and 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. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 22:00, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

No wonder this website is now a joke. An article about a political party, with references, is not acceptable. But articles about non-existent countries and cartoon characters are.

Signature[edit]

Hello, there. I don't want to worsen your already bad relations with Wikipedia, but the guideline on signatures does not allow the use of images. I have notified several editors with images in their signatures, and I always feel bad doing this, given that many of them are actually quite interesting, but there are valid arguments against such practices. For the record, I am not just blindly following the guideline for the sake of enforcing guidelines; I genuinely agree with the reason why this guideline was put in place. (Therefore, don't shoot the messenger—especially when the messenger possesses no bulletproof clothing, and the chances of you hitting his prized pocket watch are very small indeed.)

So that you should know, I have just read your goodbye message and you have my deepest sympathies as far as the image onslaught is concerned. Personally, I am in favour of limited bot activity in Wikipedia and only for cases where no significant harm can be done. The image area is one more or less foreign to me, I admit, but the few images I have uploaded (unrelated to articles) I have done so in the Commons, not here. In any case, if you feel like, you can come over for a chat (I am a good listener on-line, even though I talk a lot in real life). I am always interested in hearing other people's viewpoints about things, especially Wikipedia. (If you are not thrilled at the prospect, we could always discuss naming disputes, which seem to be in vogue nowadays.) Waltham, The Duke of 13:52, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:INA(ireland).jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:INA(ireland).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. 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. BJBot (talk) 06:17, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Infobox cardinalbiog documentation[edit]

Hi. I see you started Template:Infobox cardinalbiog - I've added some documentation to it as without instructions noone will use it, but I got a bit bored filling in what all the fields did and to be honest I wasn't completely sure what you intended for the "reason" field - would you mind editing it to make it clear? I've no particular interest in cardinals per se, I've just been filling in infoboxes for the Italy Project and figured that if I almost didn't bother using the template for want of a doc, then there must be others in the same boat....

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Daly, Cahal Brandan Cardinal.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Daly, Cahal Brandan Cardinal.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. Docg 18:37, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Davidtimble.JPG[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Davidtimble.JPG. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? One Night In Hackney303 17:51, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Capital "Advice"[edit]

Hi.
I see from the article-history that you are the creator of Advice (constitutional), and the person who originally stated that the term is frequently capitalised. There's now a wee dispute about that usage, at the article. An editor has decapitalised in the text, and placed a "fact" tag on the statement that "some constitutional writers, though not all, capitalise the word" (as "frequently capitalised" has become). If you have some input on this, and particularly some references to support that frequent use of capitalisation, please take part in resolving this, at the article. All the best,

Thanks for uploading Image:Brianfaulkner.jpg. 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. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Speedy deletion of Image:Piusxii.jpg[edit]

This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

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), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Piusxii.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. « Milk's Favorite Cøøkie ( talk / contribs) 23:16, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:IrelandsOwn.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:IrelandsOwn.png. 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.

Image source problem with Image:303945851sbxQkQ_ph.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:303945851sbxQkQ_ph.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, 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: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 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 18:54, 2 July 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. OsamaK 18:54, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Peter O'Toole[edit]

Peter O'Toole is indeed an Irish citizen, with an Irish passport and an Irish father. I gather from you that he feels that being called British is an insult (though his mother was British). What I found odd is your comment that, "simply being born, growing up and working in a place does not make you of that country". Well, that's perhaps plausible. But Mr O'Toole goes further than that. According to the Wikipedia article, his only residence is in London; he speaks with an English accent; is a cricket, rugby and soccer fan (Sunderland); loves Shakespeare's sonnets; and sent his son to Harrow School. Perhaps I move in the wrong circle, but I don't know many Irishmen like that. Do you? Millbanks (talk) 08:46, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:BookKells.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:BookKells.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

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), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:BookKells.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Sdrtirs (talk) 20:26, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:PresIrlCar.JPG[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:PresIrlCar.JPG. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Calliopejen1 (talk) 17:54, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Leinster-house.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Leinster-house.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 22:43, 20 December 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Papa November (talk) 22:43, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Just a translation[edit]

Translated or not, the surname is the same (and not considered necessarely as a title): "Saxe-Coburg and Braganza" = "Saxe-Coburgo e Bragança" (but in different languages). The article should be moved because this is the WP:EN and the naming conventions for names and titles is use the most common form of the name used in English. Just it, nothing more! Regard this:

Maria Pia of Saxe-Coburg and Braganza (Portuguese: Maria Pia de Saxe-Coburgo e Bragança) (Lisbon, March 13 1907 - Verona, May 6 1995) was the name assumed by a lady who claimed to be an bastard daughter of King Carlos I of Portugal. Etc...

It's about her name, not any title. It's imparcial and everyone can understand. Why are you complicating a simple question as a translation? 84.90.92.195 (talk) 19:34, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Dirl, I complete agree with you about Maria Pia. The user above is a supporter of Maria Pia's monarchist party and tries to promote her cause by every means in Wikipedia. He has been already blocked in some projects (like WP:PT and WP:FR) and really pushes his point of view – using propaganda material as valid reference, trying to change minor aspects in the text to corroborate her supposed titles, etc. I really think that her allegations, and those from Rosario Poidimani (a professional Syracuse liar), are just it: allegations, and must be treated like that. Other users, like DWC and Nunh-nunh, are making efforts to keep Maria Pia's article impartial. Please, help us. Best regards. --Tonyjeff (talk) 13:28, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Just thought I would correct you[edit]

Growing up and living in a country IS EXACTLY WHAT DETERMINES YOUR NATIONALITY. You can only gain citizenship after living in a country for a set number of years.

Remember, nationality is NOT hereditary. If someone has Irish parents, then they are of Irish DESCENT or ANCESTRY. They are NOT Irish. You cannot be Irish if you have never visited there; if you grew up in a country, live in a country and - most importantly - hold citizenship for that country, then that is your nationality. Your descendency plays literally ZERO part in determining your nationality.

Therefore - Peter O'Toole is BRITISH.

Governor-General's Address to the Oireachtas[edit]

This is a quick note to compliment you on the fine work you did four years ago on the above. Well done.

I have a question that I have tried to find the answer to in the past but so far with no luck. You might have a look at this article: Irish Free State (Constitution) Act 1922. You will note that that Act (a hard copy of which I have read in the past) required the King to make a Royal Proclamation for the Free State to come into being etc. I know from reports in The Times of 7 January that he made the Proclamation (I suppose we all know he made it beacuse the IFS would not have been born without it). My question is would you know where the text of the Proclamation might be or would there be a text....Does a Proclamation need to be in writing at all? I have searched for it....but to no avail....Interestingly, in your article, Governor-General's Address to the Oireachtas, the GG says "I have the honour to acknowledge the gracious message by which your Majesty has inaugurated the self governing Dominion of the Irish Free State." This suggests that the message from the King "With the final enactment of the Constitution the self-governing Dominion of the Irish Free State comes into being...." was the actual "Royal Proclamation" but it does not sound like what I would have thought was a Royal Proclamation....I would have that an RP would go something like, "I, hereby proclaim etc." Thanks.

It is a large flag of red bunting, 20ft. long by lft. wide. A large green wreath of laurel encircles two shields placed side by side in the middle of the flag. These shields are of the same dimensions, each being 5ft. deep and 5ft. across. One of them consists of a white field with the St. George's Cross of England; the other of a blue field with the Irish harp in yellow. It is expected that the fag will be on exhibitIon before the end of the week. Owing to its large size it will not be shown in full, but will be doubled in a case in which will be displayed an illustration of the whole flag. The use of the Commonwealth flag was discontinued after the Restoration. Pepys, in his " Diary," notes the change. Writing under date Mlay 13, 1660, he says:- 'To the quarterdeck, at which the taylors and painters were at work, cutting out some pieces of yellow cloth in the fashion of a crown and C.R., and put it upon a fine sheet, and that Into the flag instead of the State's arms, which after dinner was finished and set up." The Commonwealth standard adds another to the collection of historic flags in the mnseum, the last most interesting addition being the flag of the United States frigate Chesapeake, taken by H.M.S. Shannon on June 1, 1813, and given to the museum by Mr. W. W. Astor."

I wonder do you know what flag the above is referring to? Regards. Staighre (talk) 20:41, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Hello again[edit]

Hi, I just noticed you'd come back. You might remember we used to work together back when WP was a bit more fun and wasn't so weighted down by pov wars and 'rules'.

Aaanyway. I realise this is getting you involved in an unutterable can of worms but would you mind having a look at this particular mess. Dunmanway killings, and especially the talk page. No need to read the whole thing, just the last section on article re-write. If you don't want to get involved I understand. All the best Jdorney (talk) 21:12, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

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

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Blacktans.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 17:40, 29 December 2009 (UTC).

Troubles[edit]

Jtdirl, hiya, just as a courtesy note, I saw that you had concerns about tags on the Sinn Féin article. I'm an admin working to help stabilize the topic area, per Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/The Troubles, and I just wanted to give you a heads-up that the article is under a 1RR restriction (one revert per editor per day). If you have any questions, let me know? Thanks, --Elonka 23:48, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

If you check your comments you will find that most of them (ignoring the pejorative comments) have been discussed at length and a consensus reached. In those circumstances if you have new reliable sources or some new perspective then you should raise it on the talk page showing some respect for editors who have been involved in the past, and see what response you get before flying by with a couple of tags.--Snowded TALK 00:03, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Jtdirl, hi, could you please try to participate in a more civil and collegial manner at the Troubles articles? I understand that things there are a bit frustrating, but really, since you are an admin, I would have thought you'd know better than to call someone else an "idiot".[2] Would you please consider refactoring your message? I'm trying to get everyone to communicate in a more civil manner, and it would really help if you could emulate the kind of behavior that I'm hoping everyone will strive towards. Remember, best practices are to focus discussions on content, not the contributors. Thanks, --Elonka 23:55, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Regarding your changes at the Sinn Fein article, it does seem a bit odd that you are making major changes to the lead of the article, but then the lead seems to be saying things that are different from the rest of the article. Perhaps a better way to proceed would be to edit the article itself, slowly, perhaps one paragraph at a time? Then once the article is squared away, it's easier to modify the lead to provide a summary of the article itself. See also WP:LEAD for best practices these days. Thanks, --Elonka 00:43, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Rempey.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Rempey.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy.

Is your picture really Dublin, or is it Newcastle upon Tyne?[edit]

You uploaded a picture File:MaltonCH.jpg which you say is "One of a famous set of eighteenth century Malton's prints of Dublin". I wonder if the picture is not in fact of the Theatre Royal in Newcastle upon Tyne? Can you say with certainty that it is a Dublin scene and, if so, where in Dublin is it? I know that at a glance it resembles the General Post Office in Dublin but if you look carefully, the columns are too close to the building and the three statues that are on top of the GPO are not visible in your picture. Newcastle's Theatre Royal is very like Dublin's GPO but the differences can be seen by careful examination. To confuse matters further, a monument in Newcastle called Grey's Monument closely resembles the former Nelson's Pillar in Dublin so that viewed from a certain angle, the Theatre Royal and Grey's Monument in Newcastle bear an uncanny resemblance to old views of Nelson's Pillar and the GPO in Dublin. --O'Dea (talk) 09:01, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

The image is of City Hall, Dublin not the GPO. Snappy (talk) 15:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Ah! So it is. My vision was prejudiced by working with a woman from Newcastle a few years ago who kept an engraving of her home town by her desk. When I asked her why she had a picture of O'Connell Street (showing "the GPO and Nelson's Pillar", I thought) she told me it was Newcastle. The similarity was so strong that it felt uncanny, like finding out Dublin had a doppelganger in the English northeast. It took me a few days to get used to it and I kept going over to look at her picture. Finally I asked her to let me photocopy it and I took it home. --O'Dea (talk) 21:29, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

This message is being sent to you because you have previously edited the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English) page. There is currently a discussion that may result in a significant change to Wikipedia policy. Specifically, a consensus is being sought on if the policies of WP:UCN and WP:EN continues to be working policies for naming biographical articles, or if such policies have been replaced by a new status quo. This discussion is on-going at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (use English), and your comments would be appreciated. Dolovis (talk) 16:47, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Seán Ó Muireagáin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Seán Ó Muireagáin has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Prejudicial BLP - fails BLP1E. The case of mistaken identity may be notable - the victim isn't.

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 {{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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Scott Mac 23:25, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:LeoXIIItiara.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:LeoXIIItiara.jpg. 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.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, 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.

Replaceable fair use File:Cardconnell.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cardconnell.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

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. VernoWhitney (talk) 17:32, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Infobox Austrian monarch styles[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Infobox Austrian monarch styles requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it must be substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. DrKiernan (talk) 12:53, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for uploading File:Dickmulc.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.
