Orphaned fair use image (Image:Treasure Island loading.png)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Treasure Island loading.png. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Fritz S. (Talk) 20:06, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Regarding edits to Puppy (disambiguation)[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Leevclarke! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule \burbandictionary\.com\/, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. Please read Wikipedia's external links policy for more information. If the link was to an image, please read Wikipedia's image tutorial on how to use a more appropriate method to insert the image into an article. If your link was intended to promote a site you own, are affiliated with, or will make money from inclusion in Wikipedia, please note that inserting spam into Wikipedia is against policy. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! Shadowbot 00:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Kwiksave[edit]

Thanks for fixing the first date on the Kwiksave article. But you didn't need to do all of the other dates (eg change 7 July to July 7) those dates were in brackets and will auto format to the user's own choice. If you click my preferences at the very top of the screen and then click the Date & Time tab you can set the format that you want dates to appear in. As long as the dates are in brackets eg [[27 July]] [[2007]] or [[July 27]] [[2007]] then they will both appear how you set them to appear in my preferences. (27 July 2007 or July 27 2007). WP:DATE has the full info on date formats. If you need any help just drop me a message on my talk page. - X201 14:48, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback - I do like all dates to be properly formatted to display according to preferences (as per Wikipedia policy). My motivation for changing the others (e.g. "7 July" to "July 7") is actually because "7 July" redirects to the correct article title, which is "July 7". It is my understanding that internal links should point directly to the correct article wherever possible (even if it means making it a piped link), rather than to a redirect page.
However, I have just had a non-exhaustive look through Wikipedia's policies and guidelines and could not find this written explicitly (it is not mentioned on the policy on formatting dates containing a month and a day), so I could be wrong. ;-)
Many thanks again. :-) Leevclarke 15:17, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Conversion of canal water into drinking water[edit]

RE: Conversion of canal water into drinking water[edit]

Thanks for your message - had completely forgotten about the user page. I agree about the article, but looking at it was bugging me a bit! Thanks again, Kateshortforbob 15:15, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion tagging[edit]

Thanks for tagging the article PDSA (disambiguation) for deletion. However, it does not meet any of the criteria for speedy deletion. I changed it to a proposed deletion, which is the best process for non-controversial deletions that do not meet the speedy deletion criteria. Cheers! --Ginkgo100talk 22:00, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks.  :-) I wasn't sure of the best approach, but as the page is no longer relevant I thought maybe that might make it a candidate. I could not find a policy specifically on getting obsolete disambiguation pages removed.
Thanks again. :-) Leevclarke 22:07, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Technohead Headsex cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Technohead Headsex cover.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by STBotI. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 22:02, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

HackneyAdWikipedia.gif[edit]

I have only just read your message of 19 March 2009 about getting a higher-res picture. I tried re-uploading a high-res version twice but, both times, it was mysteriously fuzzier than the original low-res version. I am a technical moron, so have no idea why and have reverted to the original. Sorry. All advice gratefully received. Thejohnfleming (talk) 15:27, 8 April 2009 (UTC)thejohnfleming

Fair use rationale for File:Context_menu_windows.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Context_menu_windows.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. 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?

FSU redirect issue[edit]

Hello, you posted a comment on the "fsu" disambiguation page which is now under formal discussion regarding a possible redirect to Florida State University then disambiguate other uses from there. You may wish to revisit the ongoing discussion. Cheers! --Sirberus (talk) 21:04, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Grange hill VG advert.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Grange hill VG advert.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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:25, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hart (surname), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bruce Hart (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:06, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Peaches (The Stranglers song) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • sneer, the [[sexual tension]] is so unrelenting as to spill into [[Machismo|macho]] parody or even [[Censorship|censor] baiting territory."<ref>
