Speedy deletion nomination of Southern Shaolin Monastery[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 Southern Shaolin Monastery 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". 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 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. noq (talk) 01:54, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Shucks if this isn't notable I don't know what is?--KTo288 (talk) 20:11, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
I contest the nomination for speedy deletion: "The Power of the Powerless" was a seminal essay widely acknowledged as having contributed to the collapse of the Iron Curtain in 1989 almost without firing a shot. The author, Havel, became the first president of the post-Soviet Czechoslovakia for his contribution to this transition, including especially this essay. DavidMCEddy (talk) 20:52, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
However, I would ask KTo288 to clarify the citations, because I can't understand them. In particular, several provide page numbers for Keane, but I can't figure out what they refer to. I suggest you go to "Template:Cite book" and use the template there. I just modified that article to cite Havel 1985, and I plan to give page numbers from that book, because that's what I have. DavidMCEddy (talk) 20:52, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks David for taking this article under your wing, I created this article because, though described as one of the most influential of the works disseminated in Samizdat form, it was only a red link. The article as it stood was based on translating from the Czech article on the topic and what could be gleaned from the internet, however I very quickly hit the limits of my abilities with the czech to english translation and my understanding of the topic, thus the less than clear nature of the article as it stood. Please feel free to edit, rearrange and delete as you feel best, this is wikipedia after all.--KTo288 (talk) 08:42, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Victorious[edit]

OK, let's make it clear. Victorious usually means Victory. And I had done that. It should be "Victory", not "VICTORiOUS". --Il223334234 (talk) 06:42, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Removal of Pictures at 7th St./Metro Center[edit]

Hello,

I was wondering why you remove several pictures at the 7th St./Metro Center page. It makes no sense for me to take pictures, upload them, and have them removed from the page. I do not see the reason why you removed the picture of the Silver Line bus at 7th St./Metro Center.

Thank you

See Wikipedia:Image_use_policy#Image_galleries with regards the policy on galleries-galleries properly belong to Commons where the gallery has been moved to where it can be shared with the other language wikis without duplication, if you follow the links at the bottom of the page you'll find the gallery at Commons:7th Street / Metro Center (Los Angeles Metro station). Galleries and lots of pictures sre not in themselves always bad, but in this article the sheer number of pictures was overwhelming what text there was.--KTo288 (talk) 05:48, 9 May 2012 (UTC)


Thank you for the idea =). How were you able to create the link and the page of the photo gallery? I would like to do this to some other pages as well.

You're Welcome. Galleries are created at Commons in much the same way as articles are created here at Wikipedia, see Commons:Galleries, once created a link can be created using the template {{Commons|Name of gallery here}} which creates the link in the form of a box, or {{Commons-inline|Name of gallery here}} which creates the inline form.--KTo288 (talk) 05:24, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Forged Pound Coin.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Forged Pound Coin.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free 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. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 13:54, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

File:Forged Pound Coin.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Forged Pound Coin.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:39, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Delete request for Critical repetition frequency[edit]

I've added some remarks there. What is the correct procedure concerning delete requests? You have removed the PROD tag und wrote that I should nominate it for regular deletion: How is this process started correctly? Roland Scheicher (talk) 10:33, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Nude Marilyn[edit]

The discussion about the nude image of Marilyn Monroe at Playboy has been reopened after I added this whole paragraph describing its significance. I'm notifying everyone involved in the review discussion to see whether we can build a consensus deciding how to best portray that image within the project. Diego (talk) 22:21, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Nightclub[edit]

Information icon Constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, but a recent edit of yours to the page Nightclub has an edit summary that appears to be inaccurate or inappropriate. Please use edit summaries that accurately tell other editors what you did, and feel free to use the sandbox for any tests you may want to do. Thank you.

Yes I can see why this can be seen as duplicity, though that was not my intention, I take my lumps for this one.--KTo288 (talk) 06:11, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
