Working[edit]

Please don't revert me while I am working on Ultra Monsters. The image you are concerned with will be restored once the article is updated, see talk at User Mark Arsten. Thanks.

  • Hi Medeis, I try not to revert people while making changes, but sometimes I don't notice the date/time and make changes too quick - and sorry if I do trip up on ongoing changes. In this case I did not revert, but removed an image that had already been deleted and very very few images that are deleted are challenged - so sorry that I removed when you have a valid challenge pending. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 00:35, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I did not assume there was anything untoward going on, nor did I expect anyone would suspect I was trying to clean up this mess! I did just do a rather large edit and cull from the Redman section on down, only to have the edit lost. At this point I will probably only restart in about 24 hours. In the meantime it will be helpful if you leave the file red link in place. Happy New Years! μηδείς (talk) 00:51, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Israel Zafrir[edit]

Hi, your new article Israel Zafrir has a missing image File:Israel Zafrir 2.jpg, but I notice you edited File:Zafrir Zarizky 003.jpg over on commons today. Is this the correct image name? Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 16:00, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help - I am not sure what to do - I think this image will confuse people as he is the photographer not the person in the picture. I don't have a photo of him - only of photos he took. What do you think? I am in the process of fixing his name (phonetic spelling in Hebrew could go two ways) see these as well Drkup(IMJ) (talk) 19:32, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I see you are an article terrorist[edit]

The only reason why changes were made to the article is because it was identified as needing work. I find this type of reaction of reverting changes to articles that are earmarked needing help seem to have someone that takes possession of the article as if it is solely for their own contribution. That is being an article terrorist and I am reporting this action especially as the information included gave additional references and tightened the text. It is one thing to review changes and revert those that are in conflict but to universally revert is not only being lazy but an article terrorist. Little did I know that "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapter_Two_(play)" really is ""https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KylieTastic's_Chapter_Two_(play)". I do not expect for you to agree with this and will continue while administration is review the situation to revert when you do so.A1Houseboy (talk) 14:37, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot - I didn't see only this. Best wishes Frze > talk 20:18, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Frze, Sorry I really should have said you may or may not have seen the previous edits. It was wrong of me to just assume you were only judging on the final disastrous edit, so apologies. I must admit to knowing very little on the actual article subject and was just trying to defuse the anger by pointing out the most obvious problems with the way things were going. So if the other December edits were also in error and do need reverting/editing I'll leave it up to those of you who know better. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 21:44, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Export hell seidel steiner.png Thanks for your work. Please take a look at MissingImagesBot ... Frze > talk 16:18, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
... and one for me!

Vielen Dank Frze - I didn't realise there was a bot request page, so I had been considering looking into doing a bot myself to try to control the daily influx of new issues. Hopefully this way it will get done a lot quicker. Tschüss KylieTastic (talk) 18:32, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Tournesol.png Thank you
KylieTastic - You are really the expert!!! 11.000 errors. WOW. Hope that the new MissingFilesBot will get started as soon as possible. It took about three weeks to start ReferenceBot from publishing my idea (18. October 2012) to the first running (7. November 2012). There was a backlog of between 50.000 and nearly ~100.000 errors in all these pages watched now by ReferenceBot - now they are cleaned. Best wishes --Frze > talk 19:01, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
  • If only it had only just been the 11000 - but as it took ~90 days and at say 100+ extra a day that added another 9000+. It was really depressing some days to wake up and find up to 150 issues overnight.
  • Luckily some others have come to help along the way :) So thanks to you Frze, Tucoxn, Knochen, and the people over at US Shield requests (Notably Dough4872 & Fredddie) and any other people I missed. This 'project' has also given me a very odd set of image uploads local & commons lol — Cheers everyone that helped KylieTastic (talk) 19:45, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Another "Thank you" --Frze > talk 19:42, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi, we had in the deWp also the problem that the bot the images in the articles has not removed. Since that time (April/May 2013) we have own bot that removes the deleted photos from the articles. Cheers --Knochen ﱢﻝﱢ‎ 22:57, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Industrias Kaiser Argentina[edit]

Sorry for doing that, again. Page is on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Check Wikipedia/Error 069 whitelist. Will look into why program is not retrieving the article from the whitelist. Bgwhite (talk) 23:49, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Bgwhite, no worries such things happen, and now the backlog is finally clear its easy enough to manage. Also a not request has been made that will hopefully pick up such accidental issues and report like BracketBot does so hopefully most such issues will be self fixed. — Cheers 23:58, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Oops, gave the wrong link, its fixed. One time mistakes happen, but this is the second time. Second time means a screw up on my end. I hope ImageRemovalBot works better than BracketBot. I've only seen a 10% drop in broken brackets. Bgwhite (talk) 06:05, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Dr. Vijayalakshmy K Gupta's image removed[edit]

Hi Kylie,

Hope you are doing well. Dr. Vijayalakshmy K Gupta's image has been removed from wiki commons. May i know the reason for removing the image? Should I upload an image which is not found in the internet?

Your help in uploading the image shall be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Krarjunakr (talk) 05:45, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi, Krarjunakr. I didn't actually remove the image from commons, just the link to the deleted image from the Vijayalakshmy K. Gupta acticle. The report for the file can be seen here, and shows it was actually deleted by INeverCry over on commons, and the reason is shown here and looks like just 1 of several similar copyright challenges raise by the same anonymous user see here. You did have a notification on your talk page over on commons but unless you changed your email preferences you may not have known. I'm no expect on the copyright issues, so if the information on your talk page over on commons does not help I'd look at the help on commons, or ask a question over here at the commons help desk — Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:14, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Abalone-molecular-modelling-300.png[edit]

@P99am > copied from my talk page. Dearest Kylie - could you answer this question please. Thx --Frze > talk 15:17, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, You removed the link to the file Abalone-molecular-modelling-300.png from the page Abalone (molecular mechanics). I see that the file is really gone. However, it is not clear what happened. This file has been here for the years. Is on Wiki some mechanism that shows which files were removed and why? P99am (talk) 14:42, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Frze, no problem.
  • Hi P99am, you can see the commons page for that file here which shows it was deleted as a copyright violation. Also there was a note added to your talk page on commons here that will allow you to see who flagged and why. I've been seeing quite a few very old files be removed for Copyright Violation recently, I guess some people are working a backlog, unfortunately unless the uploader had set their email notifications up it does not seem likely many would see the proposed deletion notices. Hope that helps. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 17:52, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:1927 Sir William Bull, Unionist.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:1927 Sir William Bull, Unionist.jpg. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. January (talk) 10:24, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Opps! I really should have found that Library of Congress one when first uploading! Maybe I did and just didn't think "No known restrictions on publication." would be good enough for wikipedias 'free' definition. Hopefully it won't be too long before NPG get around to releasing 'free' (CC-BY) low quality versions, but until then agreed this now breaks WP NFC policy (even if NPG are happy with the use under their current CC licence) — KylieTastic (talk) 18:46, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Since you mention the possibility of the NPG licensing low-quality versions, there's a recent development which may affect that. Creative Commons recently clarified that it’s not possible to restrict a CC licence to specific resolutions of an image [1], which would be a problem for the NPG if they want to reserve commercial rights for higher resolution versions. If they put a lower quality version under CC-BY, someone could download the high resolution version from their website and use it under the same licence. January (talk) 09:49, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi January thanks for the heads up, even if it is depressing news. The idea was not just for the NPG, but to encourage as many museums and galleries as possible to give the world access to their works. The idea being the world get a rich source of free information, but the attribution would bring more visitors back the originators to utilise commercial opportunities to fund more work. It seemed like as a win for everyone, but does rely on only given 'free' access to lower quality representations. As with all copyright law its still unclear: the first paragraph seems to state absolutely that any CC licence applies to all resolutions, but the second paragraph suggests that that it may be possible to restrict use of the higher resolutions. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what the NPG lawyers advise them to do, maybe they will stop use of the CC licence completely, or maybe there is another 'free' licence that will work for this model. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 13:09, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi KT, January seems to have got the wrong end of the stick with regard to the NPG and the CC licence. Those images that the NPG make available under CC, they choose to make available in the highest possible quality. The issue being raised about lower quality images is driven by wikipedia policy where wikipedia administrators habitually reduce the quality of these high resolution images in line with wikipedia policy which is in breach of the CC licence. I am not aware that the NPG has specifically objected to wikipedias quality reduction policies but have only expressed concern that wikipedia is possibly breaching CC licences. Graemp (talk) 17:23, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
@Graemp: I wasn't referring to issues with our own resizing, but the suggested future arrangement in which the NPG might release lower-quality versions under CC-BY. The NPG offer 2400px versions under non-CC licences. If they licensed a low or medium resolution version of this image under CC-BY (say for example, the 800px version they currently offer under CC-BY-NC-ND), someone could actually download the 2400px version and use it under the CC-BY licence. January (talk) 19:55, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
You were referring to "a problem for the NPG if they want to reserve commercial rights for higher resolution versions." They currently don't and as far as I am aware are not talking about doing so. The issue of them releasing lower-quality images was raised as a way of getting round wikipedias re-sizing policies.Graemp (talk) 20:10, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
We would have no need for re-sizing if the licence was CC-BY, we only do this for fair use images. Would the NPG really have no issue with the 2400px version being freely used, even though this is the same resolution they currently charge for? January (talk) 20:16, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
When I said NPG don't ... in my previous message, I was referring to CC-BY. Naturally, I would assume that the NPG would be keen to protect its commercial opportunities on any image being used outside of a licence. The 800px version, the largest of the three versions freely accessible via the website, is really quite large enough for wikipedia and in fact 'too large', but I know, you don't want to talk about that.Graemp (talk) 21:15, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
We’ve somehow ended up talking about two completely different things here. I was discussing KylieTastic’s proposal to encourage the NPG to licence some of their images under CC-BY (instead of the CC-BY-NC-ND licence they currently use), my original note was nothing to do with the issue of fair use rescaling. January (talk) 22:36, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

No more discussion on possible image deletions?[edit]

Hi KT, You have been good enough to intervene, along with January and others in discussions relating to image uploads I have made. These interventions have invariably led to constructive resolutions. I have recently encountered further upload problems at the hands of Stefan2 who is now not referring images files to a possible deletion discussion which would enable others to intervene, as you will observe if you check the image links on my talk page. Some of these images should be allowable under fair use and I have amended the file descriptions on three of these files only to see these amendments reverted by Stefan2 and Werieth. Any assistance you could give would be welcome. Graemp (talk) 17:39, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Graemp. What are you talking about? The only cases I know of where I've skipped discussion are a few images with non-free tags such as {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} for which there is no fair use rationale. As all non-free files require a fair use rationale, the use of {{subst:nfurd}} is unambiguous. --Stefan2 (talk) 18:15, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi Stefan2, I don't think the talkpage of third party users is the right place to hold these sought of discussions.Graemp (talk) 19:08, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi Graemp. I wasn't sure where to respond so all parties could see this, although I agree KylieTastic's talk page is not the right place for this discussion. You need to add "fair use rationales" for the non-free, or copyrighted, images you are uploading. See Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline (including, the "Non-template" section) and Template:Non-free media rationale for more information on this. I think, although I am not much of a copyright expert, that what you need to do would be similar to my recent edit to File:Tudor Walters.jpg, one of the images mentioned on your talk page. I think using the Template:Non-free media rationale might be a preferable solution to what I did but that requires more complete information (that you may be able to provide). Given that the CSD notices placed by Stefan2 will make the files deletable, "after Monday, 20 January 2014", you don't have much time. You might want to act quickly and/or request that Stefan2 give you more time by updating the date on the Template:di-no fair use rationale on those files. (talk page stalker) - tucoxn\talk 21:31, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Busy around here isn't it :)
  • Hi Graemp, I had a very quick look as I'm mega busy at the moment and only have a few minutes a day for WP. It's a bit beyond my understanding of copyright/fair use and frankly the array of notices on the couple of images I looked at was confusing! The problem appears to be around the issue of URAA and if or not the images were "still copyrighted in its source country on the URAA date". I'm not sure why January changed them to from {{PD-URAA}} to {{Not-PD-US-URAA}} as there is no reason given to say why they were "still copyrighted in its source country on the URAA date". I'm sure all parties involved are acting in good faith so all I can say is talk to January and Stefan2 and see try to work out if their is a solution to this (to keep the images) or if not hopefully they can explain why not (as its not clear - IMHO). Sorry I can't be more help this time - damn real-life affecting wiki-life ;) — KylieTastic (talk) 23:47, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Category:Articles with missing files[edit]

Please take look [2], I'm confused - sorry - thanks --Frze > talk 11:07, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Frze, I'm not sure what is/was the problem? Was it just that you couldn't find why the article was still flagged as having a missing file? If so Tucoxn has already removed another image since your last edit. Sometimes I just can't spot them, so I just search the html source in the browser 'Wizard' and that finds most. If it was another issue, you'll have to give me a pointer. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 12:56, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry![edit]

Hi Kylie: So sorry to have reverted your edit on Mount Shasta, California but the edits on either side of it were made by someone with a user name which implies WP:COI so I backed out all the edits in one block. Thank you for your sharp eyes, I'm sorry I had to revert your edit too to take out the other ones. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:28, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey Ellin Beltz, no problem at all and what an amazingly polite and considerate wikipedian you are for even caring Thumbs up - I did notice the conflict of interest, but as the changes sort of looked ok-ish I wasn't really sure enough to do the full revert myself - especially as I still consider myself new to this wiki-ing (and it was late, and er beer...), so I decided to leave for someone else to make the call. Cheers — KylieTastic (talk) 19:53, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
I reverted because of the COI of a named entity editing on the same-named page. It really wouldn't matter if everything they said was perfect, it still ends up on the dust heap. I did pick out a few things that seemed notable from their contribution and added them (with citations) after the reversion. However we are not going to accept "Mt. Shasta" as the town name; even their own buildings use "Mount"! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:07, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Please take a look & help: Line 1 (Metro Bilbao) >>

copied from my mentor John of Reading:

Look for "Upload" or "Wizard" in the HTML source of the page, and you'll see a link mentioning File:BSicon exSTRlf RizhMZD.svg. This is part of the route map hiding behind the "Expand" link in the infobox. The file has been deleted from Commons. Route maps are tricky, so you'd best ask at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains.

George Meegan [4][edit]

from my talkpage - Could you please be so kind and answer him? Thanks a lot & nice weekend --Frze > talk 19:13, 14 February 2014 (UTC) FRZE, can you help me with what I need to do to have the photos restored on George Meegan. I had had George send an email to the appropriate to the permissions email address giving full authorization to use the photos. Why doesn't that authorize use of the photos. Did someone not receive the email message? What angers me is that nobody even mentioned to me that there was something wrong with the approval before pulling them down. Please HELP!!!!!! Bwisok (talk) 17:03, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Bwisok, I had a look and could not find an good answer. After finding no information on en.wp or commons.wm I did a quick Google found a cached page listing them all under OTRS ticket number 2013122710001535, but nothing more. I'm surprised that your talk page on commons does not have any feedback on the deletions! I can only suggest asking the commons admin Jcb who deleted them for help, or you could try the Commons OTRS Noticeboard. Sorry I can't be of more help. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 19:48, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Bwisok, I did some more research on this issue. There was some problem with the information sent to OTRS providing the permissions for the files you want to use; the images need to be released under a free license. You, or the person who sent the original e-mail providing the permissions, needs to respond to that e-mail, providing the information that was requested. If you can't find the original e-mail, you should be able to send something to permissions-en@wikimedia.org. It might take a while for them to respond (I think there's a backlog, as listed at commons:Commons:OTRS/Noticeboard) but it's important to be patient. Hope this helps! - tucoxn\talk 21:45, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a bunch to the generous souls who have tried to help me with this. I do not remember receiving any email from OTRS whatsoever. I'll go ahead and resend the original email that I forwarded from George with the permissions. Is Jcb a bot or a human? And either way, how do I talk with Jcb? I still haven't quite figured out how this Wikipedia talk function works. Sometimes I can reach a person and have a conversation and sometimes someone else just crops up out of right field to comment to me. The Wiki implementation for Wiki is slowly driving me completely bananas. Is there any good reference manual someone can suggest to help me as an author of occasional Wikipedia articles (and an experienced, published writer and editor of 20 years)? Has anyone written Wikipedia (is) for Dummies? Exasperated in Michigan. Bwisok (talk) 23:13, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey Bwisok, As far as I can tell Jcb is real so just click on the link to go to their talk page and click 'Add topic' at the top. Unfortunately no Wikipedia for dummies exists that I know of - but I'm still fairly new to this and still learning. Wikipedia is just one big iterative process to get to the end goal, the journey is not always easy, but it gets easier, and and hopefully we all get to where we need to get in the end. Always feel free to ask for help, and we'll all try to help each other along the way :) Commons OTRS Noticeboard really should be able to help, but as Tucoxn said they have backlog so it may be a slow process.

Francisca Cualladó Baixauli[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for noticing this new bio on Francisca Cualladó Baixauli. I'm not sure if there's something that can be done about that .png image, i.e. can it be converted into something acceptable? It's in use in the Portuguese language article and I hoped I could use it on the English language one. Any ideas? --Rosiestep (talk) 14:53, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rosiestep, Looking at the image licence on the Portuguese site looks like its used under 'Fair use' - as the original image was licensed as a restrictive creative commons one you can't move to commons, but you could upload a copy to English wikipedia as fair use. However the English wikipedia rules on fair use are applied more strictly, so it may not be allowed, it's dissifcult to tell. I looked for a 'free' image but couldn't find one. — Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:35, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for checking it out. --Rosiestep (talk) 17:38, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rosiestep, just in case you had not noticed: The image file was uploaded to commons [5] by Dr. Blofeld but it's been flagged due to the author and source, so will probably be deleted if not updated. KylieTastic (talk) 11:05, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

RE: Removed Image of Kenneth A. McArthur[edit]

Dear Ms Tastic

Please help me understand your decision to remove the image from the article I am working on for Kenneth A.McArthur. This is my first article and your advice, and experience will be appreciated.

The history comment shows this entry:

It'll be a big help if you would kindly explain "red-linked", please. Thank you. Rich23 Rich23 (talk) 17:40, 23 February 2014 (UTC) Richard Rossbauer Rich23 (talk) 17:40, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rich23, the link I removed was File:Kenneth A. McArthur, Better known as Ken McArthur.jpg and as you can see it does no exist, also a search of both en.winkipedia and commons showed a file of that name had never existed. However as you said it had existed I just looked back in the article history, and found the problem was caused by this edit when someone 'corrected' the file name. As the file name has a single bracket in 'BracketBot' will flag it up whenever someone edits, and someone 'fixed' it and thus broke the file. Fixed it now. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 18:06, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Rich23, I have put in a request at commons to rename the image without a bracket to hopefully stop this happening again. KylieTastic (talk) 18:10, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank You for fixing it,Kylie. 14:45, 24 February 2014 (UTC)Rich23 (talk) Richard Rossbauer

Fifth Beatle image[edit]

Hi Kylie- I was wondering why the Fifth Beatle cover was removed from the page. What can we do to reinstate? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.205.202.130 (talk) 22:39, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 206.205.202.130, I just removed the link to the image that had been deleted from wikimedia commons see here. Commons is just for copyright 'free' images - so unless the copyright owner gave full open permission it would not survive on commons. However it may be allowed if uploaded locally to English wikipedia as fair use, but I'm really no expert on the copyright issues. Just look at examples of other comics that have images for what information/use rationale is needed for it to work. For example another Dark Horse Comics comic image is File:Astro Boy-08.jpg. Hope that helps, but as I said, I'm really no expert on the copyright issues, just cleaning up articles after others have deleted images. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 22:59, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Tony Stewart[edit]

Just a note, this edit of yours where you 'reverted vandal', wasn't - the IP's change to the article was a correct change reflecting the new season. Please double-check in the future to be sure what you're reverting as vandalism actually is. Thanks. Face-smile.svg - The Bushranger One ping only 01:28, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi The Bushranger, thanks for noting and correcting my mistake Thumbs up. The reason I reverted as 'vandal' was because firstly the account had been going around vandalising a lot (for which they are now on a 2 year ban) and secondly because Chad Johnston was not a valid link so looked made-up. It was late and I got sloppy, I should have put 'reverting suspected vandalism from vandalising anon account', or better still fact checked. I assume it was probably another decent kid at the school paying for the stupidity of others, which is sad. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 11:41, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I'll upload the ones for Pachyrhynchus infernalis and Pheropsophus jessoensis, just setting the page. It's all right though, because I can access the pages' histories whenever my account is confirmed and add the files.--Alexros (talk) 01:45, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Some Mistakes in the Page of Park Byung Ho[edit]

In the page, it is said that First Baseman Lee Taek Keun batted under the Mendoza line, but he batted really well in 2009, he was in the Heroes then, and also batte 0.309 in the 2010 season, when he was traded to he LG Twins.

Heroesfan717 (talk) 14:16, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Heroesfan717, I was only the last person to edit Park Byung-Ho because I was removing the links to the deleted images - not because I know anything about the subject. It looks like that information in question has been there since the article was originally created by Btnikk back in August 2011, so you may want to go discuss this with them on their talk page. The article is lacking references, other than the link to Koreabaseball.com, so if you can find any source for any information you think is wrong or missing then be bold and amend the article. Another place you might like to check out for help with improving baseball articles or raising issues would be the talk page of the WikiProject Baseball project. I hope that helps.

Hi. I have no idea what you said about any change to any page, asi I didn't write anything on any article in the page at all. Must be a mistake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.60.131.125 (talk) 22:29, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 83.60.131.125, I see from your edit history you haven't edited anything before this edit, but also I haven't edited your talk page so I'm not sure what you are talking about. What article/edit are you referring too? Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 22:46, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

DELETED MAIN PICTURE[edit]

Kindly advise why the main picture for this article has been removed. The main picture has been the same one and approved by the photographer since the article's creation. Arms863 17:56, 15 March 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arms863 (talkcontribs)

  • Hi Arms863, you didn't say what article you were talking about but looking back at your most recently edited articles I guess your talking about Jeff Rustia? My edit was just tidying up the article by removing the link to the image that had been deleted, I did not delete the image. It appears I did however make a mistake and said it was deleted from commons when it was actually a local WP image. You can see the delete report here. There you can see it was Peripitus who deleted the image with the comment "(per WP:DUCK - rest of the user's uploads deleted for unliklihood of self-made". Notices for many of these deletions look to have been posted on your own talk page which link to the discussions. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 18:14, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
  • If this was with regard to another article just let me know which one and I'll look into it. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 18:19, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Dear KylieTastic, yes the article is Jeff Rustia. The picture that was delete by Peripitus and we would like to know why. The picture was the profile photo since the creation of the article a couple years ago. The picture was approved and did not infringe on any copyrights or trademark issues, as it was approved by the photographer Jefre Nicholls. How can we put another picture up? your help would be greatly appreciated. Arms863 20:22, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

and thank you for your immediate response and help. Arms863 20:23, 15 March 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arms863 (talkcontribs)

  • Hi again Arms863, unfortunately I can see no more information than you can as once files are deleted only people with certain privileges can see the original information about them. Based on the deletion message it looks like this was deleted only based on the validity of the other challenged images, so if you think this image had solid approval you could try asking for particular ones to be un-deleted. I would start by asking Peripitus first, otherwise I'm not sure but it looks like Wikipedia:Deletion review is where you would have to to a formal request. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 01:19, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

My Message to your undo[edit]

Hello,

Why do you change my Editing? I think it is vandalism if you change proper editing or Information. -> You are not an iranian but feel like you know the Name of their Airport. That Airport belong to whole Nation with every Religion and not to an muslim Mollah. -> The right Name for that Airport is "Tehran Interglobal Metropol Airport (TIMA)" -> Kindergarten is a deutsch (german) Word and may not be used in english. It is like I put the iranian Word "Mahde Kudak" (Kidsgarden) in to english and say children go to Mahde Kudak. -> Kidsgarden is an american Word and is proper for that Place.

Please don't change my editing unless you are really shure that the Information is wrong.

With Regard Farsidan 28/03/2014

  • Hi Farsidan, With regard to the article Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport as per my edit comment it was an "Unsourced change - official site says "Imam Khomeini International Airport" and google shows only 1 old hit for "Tehran Metropol International Airport". Note that you also broke images and changed the IATA code from IKA, to MIA - You can search here to check that IKA is the correct international identification. You may not like the name of the airport, and I also don't like naming things based on religion, however that does not change the actual name. KylieTastic (talk) 09:48, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Change of Editing?![edit]

Hello, You are denying the facts. Don't change anything in iranian Articles, otherwise you will get serious problems. Let the actual Name be like it is: "Tehran Metropole Interglobal Airport". Even so let the IATA code like it is: MIA (Metropole Interglobal Airport). Who says that the change is unsourced? Who and where are official Site? I can contact them to talk about these. No one is interested in your Name in Wikipedia, your Name is interesting for yourself and may not be a theme in Wikipedia. I have the feeling that you are manipulating our Country. 04,April 2014 14:06 PM

  • Hello Farsidan,
  • I'm not denying any facts - if you have any valid source to back up your claim please just give it.
  • Like many many editors, if I spot what appears to be a factual error I will change it - including Iranian articles.
    • Please don't threaten people aka "otherwise you will get serious problems" see WP:BULLY
  • The IATA code is IKA not MIA as a simple search on the IATA official website shows.
  • I said the claim was un-sourced as you added no source with your edit, or in your commnets here. If you have a valid source for the name change then just add it.
  • The official site for the airport as referenced on the article is ikia.airport.ir - and at the bottom it says "© 2014 Imam Khomeini International Airport" - Maybe this isn't the official site, but it looks likely.
  • I have no idea what you you mean about names on Wikipedia? Names are just so we can identify who made what edit, nothing more!
  • "I have the feeling that you are manipulating our Country" - No. I have no particular interest or opinion on Iran, any more than any other country, I do have an interest in keeping Wikipedia factual. My only opinion on Iranians is based on the fact that every one I have met in person has been a really nice person.
  • The one and only reason I reverted your edit is that I looked at the article sources and Googled and your name change claim looked made up. All you have to do is give a valid source that shows that it really has changed its name. I believe the reality is the name is "Imam Khomeini International Airport" but the name is not liked for understandable reasons. However, people not liking a name does not change the fact of what it is, and Wikipedia is about facts not opioions. KylieTastic (talk) 13:18, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Changing correct Articles![edit]

Your Interpretation shows that you don't have Military Background. You are involving yourself in "Foreign Affairs", if Iran is not your native Country. But you have been saying in your Text "our Country", which means you can be Iranian. I don't think you are iranian because your Name is not Farsi and your Character don't match iranian. Otherwise you are using other Name and malipulating Articles in Internet. This is a Fraud and has Jail Sentence. Ultimately what you are doing is playing with Human Lives, which has Death Sentence. Finally I warn you and give you the Advice not to involve yourself in these Matter, even if you are from Iran. If these gets serious Iranian Government will pursue you and you will get catastrophic Trouble. 06/April 2014 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Farsidan (talkcontribs) 12:40, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

National Portrait Gallery[edit]

Hi KT, You may remember that the NPG were reviewing the licencing options for their various collections. I have just had an email reply from their Rights and Images Manager telling me the result of their review and what they will be recommending. They basically agree to make additional collections available for use under a CC licence, which will essentially cover the bulk of their historical collection. There does not appear to have been any movement on allowing smaller/lower quality images than those in the CC licence to be used. Here is the relevant bit from the email; "With regard to the CC licences, we have reviewed our current programme, and we are intending to recommend that extra sets of images be considered. These will most likely include the National Photographic Record images, and the Bassano studios collections (which include works by Elliott & Fry and Lafayette). We will take our recommendations to senior colleagues and hope to get approval to release extra content in this way. However, the CC licence will be the same as it is now, which will be the BY-NC-ND licence. We are required to keep the ND part of the licence as our curatorial colleagues are keen that the integrity of the images be respected, and that any crops/adjustments are approved by the Gallery. I’m hopeful that the Gallery will support our suggestion to increase the number of images available under CC licences." Graemp (talk) 16:25, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Graemp, Cheers for the update, they hadn't sent me any updates. It's good that they are opening up more of there collections, but a real disappointment that they didn't see the merit of smaller images under a completely 'free' licence. At least we tried. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 16:54, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
I have since pointed out to them that in their partnership with the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography they had permitted smaller versions to appear on the ODNB website. Graemp (talk) 17:34, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
I have some more news, which is good news that I can not speak about publically. The time has come for me to carry this process forward further with other people on wikipedia. As you have a particular interest in UK related images, I would like to seek your further involvement. Is there a more private and secure place where we could discuss this subject? Graemp (talk) 18:50, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Graemp, nice to hear you have some good news - same as for January you can contact me off-wiki via Special:EmailUser/KylieTastic. However note that I'm unlikely to be able to help much in the short term as I have a lot of real life issues at the mo.... however I do hope to get back to wikipedia stuff when I can. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 20:14, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Help ![edit]

I need yesterday's date in the format of MM-DD. Thanks in advance. 04:39, 15 April 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nirjal stha (talkcontribs)

  • Hi Nirjal stha, I'm not quite sure what your asking for, but I guess from looking at your edits to your sandbox you want yesterday as a relative date to when viewed - i.e. like the template {{yesterday}} but in MM-DD format.
  • i.e the markup {{#time: m-d|-1 day}} gives 07-29
  • However, I'm not sure what you want this for as this format would be confusing to any readers as on many days you would not know if it was DD-MM or MM-DD (i.e UK vs US formats)
  • Hope that helps. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 09:35, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Variable Problem[edit]

How can i get value of variable from different page in my article. Please help

For example; Article A has the value of variable say = nirjal, I want to get such value in my article and if such value is change according value in my article should also be changed. nShrestha 13:06, 25 April 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nirjal stha (talkcontribs)

  • Hi Nirjal stha, It depends what variable you mean, I'm not aware of any custom variables, just the inbuilt ones i.e. Wikipedia:Variable#Variables - Some can reference other pages, or maybe look at [Variables on MediaWiki] such as {{REVISIONTIMESTAMP:User_talk:Nirjal_stha}} gives 20140613140908 the revision timestamp of your talk page. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:33, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Calcium[edit]

Hi, KylieTastic -- I've been searching for someone knowledgeable about astronomy to help clear up an ambiguity in a sentence in Calcium. I've been working with User talk:Apokryltaros#Calcium to clear up several problems in the article, and neither of us knows whether the Sun is considered a star of low temperature or not. See Item #3 in the discussion at User talk:Apokryltaros#Calcium. Apokryltaros made an edit to improve that sentence, but I still think it is not quite right. I'd appreciate your input. CorinneSD (talk) 14:43, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi CorinneSD, I'm not really much of an expert in astronomy, definitely more a hobbyist, however I can make some comments. Firstly I think your right to question that sentence as not been well written, and so unsurprisingly has no source attributed to it. In general I don't like terms like low as they are ambiguous, sounds more of a popular-science term. If you considerer the Sun in the stellar classification system its G rating is in the 'middle', but if you consider in the temperature range 5000K is on the low end of the 2000-50,000K main sequence range.
  • However the description is similar to the overview on the H-K project that starts "In the chromosphere of the Sun and cool stars,..." and from looking at other sources it look like what maybe the original author was trying to indicate is that we see the effect on magnetic activity in the Suns H & K prominence, and this can be used to infer the same for other stars where the H & K lines are visible which appears to be in the relatively cooler ones. This source [6] says its an important tool for studying G, K and M stars.
  • Another source to back maybe using the term cool rather than low is [7], from Stony Brook University, where it states "There are hundreds of studies ... of cool-star chromospheres using the Ca+K line core because its emission is an indicator of stellar magnetism. The Ca+K line is also much used in recent studies of solar chromospheric dynamics"
  • Hope that helps a bit? Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 18:50, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, first let me thank you for such an informative reply. I skimmed the material to which you provided links (but only understood some of it). I found one sentence that I thought needed attention in one of the articles. However, with all that, I still couldn't decide what to do with the sentence in Calcium. Maybe Apokryltaros can. Thanks again. CorinneSD (talk) 20:27, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi KylieTastic, I noticed that you often revert vandalism. Would rollback rights and reviewer rights be of use to you? If so, I'd be happy to grant them to you. Please let me know what you think. Best. Acalamari 09:31, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Acalamari, thanks for noticing :) I don't really know much about the permissions, but the rollback would be useful so I could use some of the other anti-vandalism tools, and the reviewer would have been useful a few times in the past. So yes thank you, I think it would be helpful to have them. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:15, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Done! Thanks for your reply. Good luck! :) Acalamari 14:59, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

My removal of fake material[edit]

Hello, regarding your message please, I hadnt time to add a note before you sent me a message. im not a vandal. Someone added fake information to the Abbasi page, which had already been deleted/removed in the Dhund Abbasi page previously. The Dhund Abbasi are a local/indigenous tribe of this area of North Pakistan, although a major dispute developed here on Wikipedia when they claimed Arabic 'Abbasi' (Abbasid) origins. Im going to remove this again, as it this page has nothing to do with Pakistan or the Dhund Abbasis, who are non Arabic converts to Islam from Hinduism. Thanks. 39.54.47.194 (talk) 16:36, 13 July 2014 (UTC) Col (retd) Mumtaz, Pakistan

Loss of images from rewritten article[edit]

Not being a "wiki-guru", I do not write items and items for Wikipedia per se. Instead, I write about the few things I am informed about and find to be missing from Wikipedia or to be presented erroneously in existing articles there. So I am not familiar with most of the uniquely wiki commands that make things happen. I try to accomplish those things by mimicking the forms I find in other edited articles. It doesn't always work. In my recent re-do of the article entitled "QUILL (satellite)", I tried to include three images that I had previously (after another long struggle with wiki notation) put into Wikimedia Commons. In spite of my mimickings in this case, the only thing that appeared in each thumbnail box was the file name. Hoping that someone like you would catch and fix it, I let it go that way. But, instead of a fix, those items suffered a deletion. Where did I go wrong in my mimicking? Can you and will you fix it? The images can be found in Wikimedia commons under the category (someone other than me put them there) "National Reconnasissance Office".Oldteched (talk) 04:11, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Oldteched, thanks for the message - I'd always rather fix images than remove them. I have found them and added them back in with the required changes. I'm at work so just did it quickly, the article including the pictures probably needs some more formatting, so I'll have another look over the weekend if no one else has. There were two issues with the pictures, both in the category of things computers care about but humans don't (so don't notice them) :
  • Wrong (angled) double quotes - i.e. “Quill” instead of "Quill"
  • Character case issues - case counts even for the file name extension so .JPG not .jpg
The easiest way is to find the image on commons or wikipedia and cut and paste the name even if they look the same (some characters like different version of a hyphen look the same)
Hope that helps - any others questions or problems just ask and I'll try to help. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 08:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
That was quick! Heaps thanks.Oldteched (talk) 17:59, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Better and better -- the larger thumbnails are as good as needed. Nice to have someone who knows his way around in wiki-ese. I suppose that the "enlarged" size of the third one is restrained by my having made it too tall (?), but the thumbnail version is fine now.Oldteched (talk) 01:44, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Oldteched, the new way they show "enlarged" images isn't great for more vertical images. However people can still get to the original to view better if they want, by either of the option in the lower right "view original file", or "more details... on commons".

My named photo correction was reverted & replaced with incorrect information[edit]

The Bay City Rollers article includes two photo's claiming ( by way of the text below them) to be The Bay City Rollers in 2014. This is incorrect as these photo's are of a different band consisting only of ONE Bay City Roller member ( Les McKeown)and other previously unknown musicians currently performing as 'Les's Legendary Bay City Rollers'. 'The Bay City Rollers' achieved global success at the height of their career in the mid 70s and became effectionately known as the Classic 5 line up - Eric Faulkner, Alan Longmuir, Derek Longmuir, Stuart John Wood ( who's article Wiki has recently deleted .. ? ) and Les Mckeown. Each band member has a loyal fan base who continue to actively celebrate The Bay City Rollers ( classic 5 ) to this very day. As only Les Mckeown is shown in the article photo's with his new current band and NOT The Bay City Rollers, the photo's are named incorrectly and become misleading. Is it possible to please label the photo's correctly or remove them? Thankyou 2Infome2 (talk) 10:01, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 2Infome2, I only reverted the edits as the picture you added File:cmglee_Cambridge_Legendary_Bay_City_Rollers_curtain_call.jpg does not exist, and I assumed the new picture and caption went together. I didn't realise it was just a case of 'correcting' the file name, as well as the caption. Please feel free to correct any incorrect information on the article, including the image caption if wrong (It's not a subject I know about). Just note the image file name cannot be renamed unless you put in a request over on wikimedia commons. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for working on improving the articles correctness. Cheer KylieTastic (talk) 10:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi 2Infome2, It's not an topic I know, but as a general principle if your information is correct (and I think it is) then I would think the picture is misleading and would be better removed completely. If you do remove, just make sure the edit summary is clear, and maybe add a note on the talk page. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:25, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: Accusations of vandalism[edit]

Hi KylieTastic, The removal of your edit was inadvertent, as you can see almost 50,000 bytes of vandalism was deleted across two reverts and an edit. This is a persistent problem and something like ten times the amount has been removed from the other article changed by the same editor, The Shapies. While I apologise, I ask that you help remove any further hoax or vandalism. MartinSFSA (talk) 12:12, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

At first I thought vandal/edit test then looked at your edits and realised just a mistake/typo, I was going to send a message but you fixed before I could :) - Happy to help, Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 19:48, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Thomas F. Farrell Jr.[edit]

Thanks for the file rename request. It was my mistake on uploading, though I think the one "l" on the ship name goes back to the origin of the Wiki page. It is certainly "Farrell" in all references I added back some time ago and I've just checked. I'll see if I can easily find if the Thomas F. Farrell Jr. is the son of the general. Not a priority, but interesting. Do see more information on Thomas F. Farrell Jr. and his inclusion on the West Point Class of 1942 World War II Deaths marker. Palmeira (talk) 15:13, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Confirmation is actually in the general's page here, though the reference is a 404 now. Palmeira (talk) 15:35, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Palmeira - I found a link that mostly validates [8] - looks like a reasonable source.
"Tommy was the namesake of his father, an Army major general who, after a distinguished career spanning both world wars..."

  • Side note: he also had a street in Richland WA named after him [9] KylieTastic (talk) 16:01, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Good. Just added a bit to the page with a note linking to the general's page where mention is made. Adding your find to the external links seems reasonable. Palmeira (talk) 16:10, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi. Francvs Thomas Francis Farrell, II is the son of Peter Farrell, a son of the general who is mentioned in the article on the general; he is thus the nephew of Thomas Francis Farrell, Jr., for whom the ship is named. He is also the father of Peter Farrell (politician), who is thus a grandson of the Peter Farrell already mentioned, and a grandnephew of Thomas Francis Farrell, Jr.
  • Hi Francvs, thanks. A lot of people of note in that family! Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:45, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Cool it, man[edit]

Most people can see when what they have done is not what they intended. So, relax and allow a few minutes for people to fix their own mistakes and mishaps and you will spare yourself a lot of work. Just stand back and watch how it all works itslef out. A beer for you. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 16:39, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rui Gabriel Correia, sorry I was just working through Articles with missing files and didn't notice the edit was just a couple of minutes old, I generally try to leave a bit longer to see it its self fixed. However often after a few minutes the editor has moved on and not noticed, and sometimes doing a revert gets there attention to fix it before someone deletes it because it's now invalid. Plus unfortunately we have a lot of non-constructive editors who make such edits for whatever reason these people do what they do :/
All the best and happy editing KylieTastic (talk) 17:00, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
P.S. Thanks for the beer I think I'll have it now as its rather hot here ;)
All well. Actually I did not take into account that it might not be immediately obvious on your side how recent the edit was. And I take your point about editors editing and moving on and about the vandals. But thanks for your note. Appreciated. Enjoy your beer, I wish I had one now - but did not buy as we are in the middle of winter (South Africa). Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 17:09, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Unnecessary change to Atlantic High School (Port Orange, FL)[edit]

I am a student at this school and our Baseball team is known as the "Flaccid Boiz" and we always say "Home of the Flaccid Boiz" at our games — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.239.210.195 (talk) 19:28, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi User:72.239.210.195, Wikipedia works on being sourced - so if you have a source for that please link. Also on its own "Home of the Flaccid Boiz" means nothing to those not at the school. So a sentence to explain would be more appropriate. However "Flaccid Boiz" would be a very odd name for a team, sounds more like a put down - so without a source/reference/link I doubt it would be believed.

Please help delete two pages[edit]

Hi Kylie- I created a page titled 'Suzanne Marie Olsson' that you helped with (made some minor edits). Once the editing started, the deteriorating of the page began. This happened at Wiki before about the same person. There is another page marked for deletion for her- but that hasn't been deleted yet either, and should be.

www.wikifolks.org/wiki/index.php/Suzanne_M._Olsson

Olsson already explained in her book that situations mentioned in the India news article were "planted" by fundamentalists at the tomb,inaccurate and done with an agenda. To publish them is just to empower the fundamentalists who want to destroy the tomb. Editors are adding these same errors to my biography page about the same person. I want avoid conflicts and controversy. I 'blanked' the page and would like someone with the ability to delete it entirely. This is best. I'll start another page about something else. Can you delete these pages for me? I am not sure if you are an administrator or not...If not, perhaps you can find someone else to do it for us. Many thanks for your help Granada2000 (talk) 04:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)Granada2000Granada2000 (talk) 04:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

See note at User talk:Drmies#Drmies admin help line Bgwhite (talk) 06:17, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Granada2000, firstly no I'm not an administrator, but Bgwhite is. Not that it matters as much as you may think as most things on Wikipedia are done via collaboration and consensus, backed up by the administrators taking action.
  • If you now want the article to be removed the best thing is to say so on the Articles for_deletion:Suzanne Marie Olsson page, as at the moment your opinion as stated on that page is to give the article more time to develop. As you asked for my help I have already added to that discussion that it should be deleted.
  • As for the page on wikifolks.org - that is not related to Wikipedia other than using the same Wikimedia software. I would suggest creating an account but with a different user name and password on that site and discussing it with them.

links not relevant in the wikipedia notice on Louis Zukofsky[edit]

Dear Kylie,

I am the translator of "A", a book of Louis Zukofsky. In the wikipedia notice on Zukofsky, the link on "François DOMINIQUE" is false: The only author who has to be mentioned is the french writer and translator François DOMINIQUE and the link on this name on wikipedia. Thank you, if you can agree this correction. Yours,

François DOMINIQUE. aseroe@wanadoo.fr — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.196.246.2 (talk) 12:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 83.196.246.2, I have updated Louis Zukofsky so that if does not link to a page without the actual person. If this author is of note you would need to create a new article for them. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 12:59, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Portal:Current events/Sports/Sidebar[edit]

Please accept my humble apologies about that – I was preparing to delete the revision when my mouse jerked and I ended up accidentally clicking the Rollback option. You beat me to reverting the mistake. SuperMarioMan ( talk ) 14:57, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • No worries SuperMarioMan, done of couple of them clicks myself and had the panic of could I fix/explain before I got caught :) Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:00, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
