Kesara article[edit]

Hi Kesara (again) — I'm afraid that I've nominated your article Kesara for deletion at Wikipedia:Votes for deletion. This is because it is a dictionary definition, not an encyclopedia article, and so would probably be better off at wiktionary, our on-line dictionary. Feel free to comment on my talk page or to vote at Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Kesara if you like. Please don't be discouraged if your first article is deleted, and your contributions are always welcome at Wikipedia. — Asbestos | Talk 22:42, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Image:Kartoo.png[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that an image that you uploaded, Image:Kartoo.png, does not have any copright information and has been marked as such, you might want to check out wikipedia copright policies and mark it's image page with the correct template. Jtkiefer 04:17, July 15, 2005 (UTC)

Have changed your edit of LTTE as terrorist[edit]

Hi, I have changed your edit of the LTTE article and removed terrorist, as there are different views on this. You may see that further down in the article it is mentioned that several states have listed LTTE as a terrorist organisation, and that should show the readers that the organisation has some serious international accusations against itself. Sri Lanka itself has however not listed the LTTE as a terrorist organisation. Ulflarsen 08:39, 19 March 2006 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:SLIIT logo.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:SLIIT logo.PNG. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:SLIIT logo.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:SLIIT logo.png. 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. BetacommandBot 21:20, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Calculator.NET[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Calculator.NET, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Calculator.NET. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 19:06, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Calculator.NET[edit]

I have nominated Calculator.NET, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Calculator.NET. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:One world one internet one standard.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:One world one internet one standard.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 14:55, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
