WP:RM[edit]

If you wish to make a Requested Move please read: WP:RM#Steps for requesting a page move You have to complete all three steps if you want the page to be moved. I have added the talk page to the request you posted on WP:RM but you will have to do steps 2 and 3 --Philip Baird Shearer 21:10, 30 March 2006 (UTC) As proposer you do not need to put an opinion under Survey (although some do and it does no harm). But you do need to "PageName → NewName – {reason for move with signature} copied from the entry on the WP:RM page" copied your signature across from the WP:RM page (or signed the similar text - I did not check to see if it is a cut and past or something similar).

The reason for doing this is because after 5 days the request disappears from the WP:RM page and the template is removed. So your proposal becomes the archive on the talk page of the requested move. This is different from WP:AFD where they keep their own archive. We do it this way, because if a page is renamed again t the original talk page moves with it so keeping the archives of requested moves with the page. It is a simple solution to a potentially complicated problem. --Philip Baird Shearer 14:01, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Great job on Abortion in South Africa[edit]

I enjoyed reading your article, Abortion in South Africa. I have to admit that when I clicked on it knowing it was a new page, I somewhat expected a biased account. You made the page very informative and presented it from a neutral point of view. Kudos! --Strangerer (Talk | Contribs) 20:18, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Leuce[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Wikipedia:Leuce, by Black Falcon, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Wikipedia:Leuce fits the criteria for speedy deletion for the following reason:

G6 (housekeeping). This seems to be an unused user sandbox created in the wrong namespace. Its only content is/has been a link to a subpage. The page has no incoming links and no significant page history.


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Wikipedia:Leuce, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Wikipedia:Leuce itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 20:44, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Cupertino Effect[edit]

Hi there. Just ... wow! I live there, as it happens, and had never heard of that before. Well done in pointing that out (and adding references, too :) ) - good work! - Alison 16:26, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Lanseria_international_airport.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Lanseria_international_airport.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ˉˉanetode╦╩ 00:26, 22 August 2007 (UTC)


Spam in Talk:OmegaT[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Talk:OmegaT, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Talk:OmegaT is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Talk:OmegaT, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Milansnakeisland.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Milansnakeisland.jpg. 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) 13:33, 19 November 2007 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of Galadriel (band)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Galadriel (band), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

AfD nomination of South African Translators' Institute[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated South African Translators' Institute, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/South African Translators' Institute. 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. Zunaid 16:48, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on AIDS denialism. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. Keepcalmandcarryon (talk) 10:43, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi leuce. I think it would be a good idea to avoid making any more controversial edits on this article for a while, until there is a clear consensus on the talk page. I commend your attempt to discuss things, and recommend you leave ample time for the other editors to be convinced by your arguments. There's no rush here, Wikipedia isn't going to be finalised any time soon... So no 3RR block this time, but be extra-careful in future. Thanks, yandman 12:15, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

deletion of reliably sourced information[edit]

Please stop deleting reliably sourced information, as you recently did at HIV/AIDS in South Africa. If you feel a reliable source is out of date, please use the talk page to suggest an update...and allow ample time for other editors to review your concerns. Keepcalmandcarryon (talk) 22:09, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

My edits in HIV/AIDS in South Africa have only improved the article. There were duplicated text which I removed. As to your suggestion that I use the talk page, well, I already do that. In fact, I have posted several suggestions on the Talk page about changes that I thought might be contentious. Have you seen it? -- leuce (talk) 10:08, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Outcome mapping[edit]

Hi. I checked back on the deleted article, because I didn't remember it, and I was actually the second person to delete it for the same reason - and it was pretty blatant ("how can you find out about outcome mapping - go to this website", etc). As long as it's a notable subject and your new version is written in an NPOV way, there's no reason it should be deleted again. Deb (talk) 17:53, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Looks great to me! Deb (talk) 21:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

mere editorialisation[edit]

I'm sure there are plenty of references for the symbolic value of the event, if you (or I) feel like looking for them. Zaian (talk) 07:23, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, found one. I'm also looking for references for the social democratic / democratic socialism categorisation for the ANC and COPE, which I see you've also taken an interest in. Regards, Zaian (talk) 08:12, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Rope pump edits[edit]

I am also not an expert. I love the idea and intend to build one so spent a bit of time researching them and then did my civic duty of adding what I had learnt to wikipedia! So.... if you think I am wrong on something or that you think it should be better then please do any edits you think make sense PeterEastern (talk) 03:38, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

They shaped our century[edit]

Thanks for the compliments! I think the page is definitely interesting and potentially useful. I'd say start the article as soon as you're reasonably happy with it, and put the rest of your discussion points on the Talk page. I'm continuously surprised at how few active editors there are on South African topics, though, so don't be too surprised if there isn't much response when you've created the article.

The first hurdle for the page to survive is to prove that the topic is notable, otherwise articles get deleted fairly quickly. It helps if you assert notability in the first paragraph, e.g. if you describe the list as "the first list of its kind in the new South Africa", "a major survey of 100 000 participants", or something like that, preferably backed by a reliable source. Or maybe there was some significant controversy around the list which made it notable. You've got quite a lot of references in the page and the related discussion, so be sure to include those. Also make links under "See Also" from List of South Africans and SABC3's Great South Africans, or work the link into the text if you can.

My other comments would be fairly minor, e.g. I would use a more neutral term like "State President" or "Prime Minister" rather than statesman, but those are details.

NowCommons: File:OmegaT-screenshot.png[edit]

File:OmegaT-screenshot.png is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:OmegaT-1.6.0 RCB-wc.png. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:OmegaT-1.6.0 RCB-wc.png]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 16:38, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Christian Democratic Party[edit]

Hi Leuce, in response to your query, no, but since they formed an alliance with the CDA, and all communication that I can find since has been in the CDA's name, it seems the CDP has ceased to exist. For example, the most recent press release on the CDP site is this one. Feel free to correct if you can find evidence of their independent existence. Greenman (talk) 15:23, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Opera acid3.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Opera acid3.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 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 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 "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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 03:13, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

South African National Anthem Page - Your Edit[edit]

In fact, Leuce, the "South Afrika - South Afrika" is Sesotho, not English. Since Grade 1 in South Africa I have been taught that it is Sesotho, rather than English but spelled with a 'k' rather than a 'c' as it would be in English. I have edited the page in question, seeing as how I know that there is no bridging line between the Sesotho and Afrikaans verses. This is no personal offense to you, but I find this edit a personal offence to me, because if you do not know that this is Sesotho you are possibly not qualified to edit pages about South Africa. Please reply, I will revisit your page every Monday until this is sorted out, I would like to see some justice for my country and its proud tradition, and in this case the national anthem. Thank you, and note that I will sign my posts on your page with my name,

203.171.197.52 (talk) 15:28, 11 January 2010 (UTC) Courtenay Gass

I can find no web references that "South Afrika" is either Northern of Southern Sotho. But I can find several references that "Afrika Borwa" and "Aforika Borwa" is. Take a look, for example, at President Jacob Zuma's 2009 State of the Nation address in English, Northern Sotho and Southern Sotho: http://www.info.gov.za/speeches/2009/09060310551001.htm, http://www.info.gov.za/speeches/2009/09061716351004.htm, and http://www.info.gov.za/speeches/2009/09061716251003.htm. Nowhere in the two Sotho versions is "South Afrika" used for "South Africa". -- leuce (talk) 16:19, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Koemelaat.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Koemelaat.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please remove the tag.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 13:00, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Sleipnir acid3.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Sleipnir acid3.png. 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.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Water cycle, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Diogenes (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.

Referencing at South African Sign Language[edit]

I see the referencing of the article is a pretty horrible mess of mixed styles including many bare URLs. Cleaning it all up will be quite a lot of work which I am willing to try. However as you are actively editing the article I will wait until you have finished. Please let me know when I can start fixing the refs without worrying about conflicting with your edits. Thanks Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:04, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Our edits clashed once today but I think we both managed to "fix" it. I'll wait a few days before making further edits, if you want. -- leuce (talk) 23:46, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
