Hello, um...that message on my talk page. I responded there, and I usually don't speak to anybody on their talk pages if they left a message on my talk page but this is urgent, and besides, this is where you told me to talk. Anyway, it's a screenshot. Screenshots have been used on wikipedia. So what's the problem? --IBCPirates (talk) 19:33, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello! The reason I flagged the image is because it is a copyrighted screenshot, which can only be used if it meets one of the criteria for non-free content. Yes, copyrighted images (such as logos and screenshots) can be used in articles, but only in certain cases, none of which appear to be met in this case. In particular, it appears to violate criterion #8, in that such content should be included "only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the article topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding." In other words, the rationale you included says it's there to show "what the character looks like," but there's no clear reason why the image adds to the understanding of what the character looks like; there's nothing in the text describing the character's appearance—and, quite frankly, the character looks pretty much how Penelope Cruz normally looks anyway. We have to be careful with how we use and present copyrighted information, and this policy is the core of that decision. You'll note that there are no other images of characters included in that article; this is the reason why. I hope this information helps. --Kinu t/c 19:41, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay, but there are some pages like, Jack Sparrow. There is a picture of him, which is most likely a screenshot. If I was to create a whole new article about Angelica, because she is one of the main characters in On Stranger Tides could I use it there? And I'm still not understanding the logo part. There isn't a logo on the screenshot. I took it while I was watching it by putting the DVD in my computer, not on YouTube or the official website. --IBCPirates (talk) 20:51, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
The article Jack Sparrow contains a section on "make-up and costumes," where the creation of the character's wardrobe, etc., is discussed, and the image contains a rationale explaining why it is allowed under fair use. The image also appears to be a publicity still, not a screenshot. If you can create a sourced article about the Angelica character and can provide a similar explanation for why such an image is necessary for the reader's understanding of what the character looks like (similar to the case in the Jack Sparrow article), then it would possibly meet the fair use criteria above. (Also, I mentioned logos as another example of fair use images; screenshots of films/TV shows are not the only images covered by these criteria.) --Kinu t/c 18:16, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, if it's encyclopedic, then why is it still there? It doesn't make sense, because its...well, absurd. --IBCPirates 18:29, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't know what you're referring to or what you mean by this. --Kinu t/c 18:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
User:Kinu Could I make an Angelica webpage? Sorry, but I didn't really understand what you're saying. Could you put it in a little simpler vision? --IBCPirates 18:30, 21 August 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by IBCPirates (talkcontribs)
You may create an article about the Angelica character if you can find reliable sources that discuss the character in depth. Your own observations from watching the movie would not be acceptable article content, but information in reputable movie reviews, etc., would be reasonable. --Kinu t/c 18:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

User:L!0NRAWR[edit] I thought Wikipedia wasn't a travel guide. And there is nothing about back country camping on any asseteague island links on Wikipedia, and you are claiming my information can be found on other wiki pages, you are a piece of work.....what's your problem, why can't I give other users this awesome information about what to expect at this awesome park. All u do is hide behind your generic copy and paste protocols, you give no real suggestions. And the way I see it people are making wiki pages about everything and for some reason you are picking on me? Why? — Preceding unsigned comment added by L!0NRAWR (talkcontribs) 22:07, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Responded on your talk page. --Kinu t/c 04:19, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm confused, because everything that I wrote wasn't original research. Xcept for my comment about having to walk past people who drive in. the rest is verifiable from the state park sources I just hadn't had a chance to link anything, as I have no idea how to use this site, and that I just got home from a 5 day walkabout on the island. All I could think about was how I could share this information with others. There are no photos of little levels online and I wanted to inform people.......and the reason. I copied the definition is because your Wikipedia protocol states "not an encyclopedia article" perhaps you should change that to "not a Wikipedia article" since Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia, apparently. Honestly this is F-ing ridiculous and I'm at a loss for words
Good Day — Preceding unsigned comment added by L!0NRAWR (talkcontribs) 11:14, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
If that is the case, then I don't think there's anything more to discuss here. Good day to you as well. --Kinu t/c 18:14, 23 August 2014 (UTC)[edit]

You blocked this IP in June for disruptive editing, and I've just now blocked it for a week for the same thing. Could you look quickly through contributions and then offer an opinion regarding whether it's the same person or not? Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 05:08, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

I'd guess they are, actually... the interest in May 22 that led up to both blocks suggests that the IP is static. --Kinu t/c 21:05, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

AIV Report[edit]

Hey there, saw your comment on AIV regarding 2601:6:6F00:538:10AA:EE25:452C:BFBC (talk · contribs). IPv6 IPs are possible to rangeblock. It's a little complicated to explain so I hope I can. Users who are not using mobile ISPs will usually have anywhere from a /48 or smaller ranges. Mobile ISPs can be as large as /29 from what I've seen. Blocking a range is a bit different. For example, to block a /48 range, just type in AAAA:BBBB:CCCC::/48. Another example is blocking a /64 range which would be something like AAAA:BBBB:CCCC:DDDD::/64. So like 2601:6:6F00:538:10AA:EE25:452C:BFBC would be 2601:6:6F00:538::/64 and a /64 address is usually allocated to one customer. Here's also a helpful site to determine what IP addresses are blocked for each range. Elockid (Talk) 01:33, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Interesting... I do need to explore this further. Thanks for the pointers! --Kinu t/c 18:15, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

CSD Category Question[edit]

Hi Kinu,

I saw that you've proposed speedy deletion of a few Movie articles that this user created. He just created another one (here), and I'm having trouble remembering the correct category to file a CSD proposal of this type of article under. None of the guidelines on the Criteria for speedy deletion page (that I can see, at least) explicitly define a section to file for pages lacking the importance or significance of a film or movie. Which category is considered the proper one for this type of article? Thanks in advance :-) ~Oshwah~ (talk) (contribs) 11:15, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I'm fairly certain the movie doesn't actually exist (the user has taken to creating articles that discuss himself, inserting himself into other articles, etc.), so I've deleted once again per WP:CSD#G3 as a blatant hoax. I had warned the user so I've blocked; perhaps that will allow for an explanation. --Kinu t/c 16:09, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
No problem! Glad I could help! ~Oshwah~ (talk) (contribs) 05:39, 28 August 2014 (UTC)


seeing as you like banning people can u ban the user pawak who ahs both threatened and patronized me for no reason — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Responded on your talk page. --Kinu t/c 23:06, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I won't make any further contributions to Wikipedia ever again so you have got your own way. That includes the numerous financial ones that have been made by myself over the years, and the reason for that is because of your ongoing threats and bullying. I hope you feel pleased with yourself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
Whatever. --Kinu t/c 23:15, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi Kinu, yes I saw your comment on their talk page and also noted it was ignored. Good advice, best thing is to ignore them. Thanks very much my friend. Pawac (talk) 23:20, 26 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi Kinu. I just wanted to let you know that I had to change one of your blocks here due to there being a huge number of unrelated registered users on it. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 14:00, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
