You're 17!!?!?!!!![edit]

Oh my god! I never use that many punctuation marks, but crimey! I was SOOOO convinced you were a 56-year-old Brit of low-level noble birth who worked at Burke's Peerage. Swear to god. I'm floored. You're a rock star. Wow. jengod 00:52, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Today's FA[edit]

I just thought I'd note that today's FA, Mary II of England, is one of yours and that (as usual) it is excellent. Raul654 20:49, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Important AfD[edit]

I am contacting editors applies NPOV and NOR standards rigidly for their input on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of modern day dictators, where a consensus has yet to be established. I think this AfD is particularly important because it has been bringing to light some fundamental differences in interpretations of content policies among editors. If you have time, please take a look at the page and add your input. Best regards. 172 07:57, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Lord Lonsdale[edit]

My Lord, do you know if William Lowther, 2nd Earl of Lonsdale was called up to the House of Lords in 1841 by a writ of acceleration? Everything I've checked suggests that he never sat in the Commons again after 1841, yet he's certainly in Peel's government as Postmaster-General. His father didn't die until 1844. I mean, a writ would explain everything, I just don't have any evidence. Best, Mackensen (talk) 20:44, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

He was summoned to Parliament on 8 September 1841 in his father's Barony of Lowther, of Whitehaven in the County of Cumberland (Peerage of Great Britain, created 26 October 1797). (So says the Complete Peerage, at any rate.) Hope that helps. Proteus (Talk) 22:23, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
That's it exactly, many thanks. Mackensen (talk) 23:13, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
Actually, a further question. Would he be known then as the Lord Lowther by virtue of the barony, for that three-year period, and not as Viscount Lowther? Mackensen (talk) 23:19, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
No. The courtesy Viscountcy would take precedence over the substantive Barony (cf. Lord Salisbury, who was known as "Viscount Cranborne" even whilst sitting in the Lords in his father's Barony of Cecil). Proteus (Talk) 08:24, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

First Lord of the Admiralty[edit]

You redirected "First Lord of the Admiralty" to "Admiralty" with the edit summary "this list exists elsewhere".

  • First - I question whether this is a good reason for redirection. The office itself merits an article, whether the incumbents are listed somewhere else or not. It was an important office.
  • Second - where is this other place where the incumbents are listed? Why isn't this the place where the list should be maintained? How are later readers, like myself, going to go check to see whether the list remains in existence a year later? -- Geo Swan 03:15, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

The Village Voice[edit]

Nice little mention the other day (17 January). Just thought I'd drop by and pass along a little gratitude to a fellow Lord for promoting Wikipedia. Thanks. --LV (Dark Mark) 19:23, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Hugo Black edits[edit]

I appreciate your hard work on the Hugo Black article, and rather than engage in an edit war with you I want to make a couple of points. First, the ordering of Black's beliefs as relating to specific provisions of the Bill of Rights as the actually appear in the Bill of Rights is completely arbitrary. Black's civil rights record needs to be treated separately in the article. Frankly, the old structure, which treated the issues in a sort of chronological order (civil rights first, then incorporation, then free speech during the McCarthy era, his rejection of "right of privacy" in the 1960s, etc.) was superior because Black's emphasis, if not his actual views, changed over time and also because the new structure is utterly arbitrary. I disagree strongly with some sections where you attempt to describe Black's record as inconsistent, incidentally; I don't think that it is true that his lack of support for extending the Fourth Amendment or "right of privacy" renders his jurisprudence less absolute than he claimed. And I don't agree with many of your deletions of content; for example, Chambers v. Florida was the first indication that this ex-Klansman was not actually racially prejudiced on the bench. I am not going to keep playing revert games with you, however; I expect you to respond to my comment in some manner. Please Don't BlockPlease Don't Block

Hi, I'm soliciting Wikipedia:Peer review#United States Bill of Rights comments from people who contributed to the FA on the 1st Amendment, since there doesn't seem to be any response at PR. Many thanks, Kaisershatner 21:08, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

It was good to see your name on some recent contributions, even if have been concentrating until recently on US legal subjects rather than (the much more important) British topics ;) Your contributions are all the more valuable these days, given how few and far between they seem to be. -- ALoan (Talk) 01:17, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Baron Hesketh[edit]

Hello, I was mining "Random article" for something fun to work on today and I stumbled upon Baron Hesketh, an article you started. I noticed that there are a lot of links to un-created articles. In my opinion, it seemed too many, so I removed most of them. I also notice that solitary years were linked, so I removed those as well, in accordance to the MoS at WP:DATE (the linking of years should either be for a strong connection to that year in question, or as part of a full date, where the wikilink is mainly about allowing the user's preferred style of date display to be used.) Just thought I'd leave you a note in case you disagree with me and would like to discuss these edits I've made. Best, Johntex\talk 23:38, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Hugo Black[edit]

Hello there. Since you seem to have been involved in editing Hugo Black, I thought I'd tell you that I have posted some—I hope helpful!—comments about the article on the talk page. They respond to some of the objections that were made during the failed featured-article nomination. You can see my comments here. Best wishes, Hydriotaphia 05:52, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Katelyn Faber[edit]

Could you weigh in at the bottom of the Talk Page for Katelyn Faber regarding the inclusion of an image of her? User:Tufflaw, who unsuccessfully tried to have the entire article deleted back in December 2005 insists on censoring/deleting it for extremely specious reasons, and I've been asked to gather a consensus. Please read the bottom two sections of that page. Thanks. Nightscream 18:42, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Lord Wolfson of Marylebone[edit]

I notice you seem to have some knowledge of British peerage, and I'm wondering if you can take a look at Talk:Lord Wolfson of Marylebone and make any comments you might feel appropriate.

Lords Chancellor[edit]

Hi, on Lord Chancellor you changed the plural to Lord Chancellors from Lords Chancellor. Can I ask why you did this, when it is a clear compound plural, indeed if you look at An official Report by a Royal Commission and the following parts of Hansard [2] and [3] you will see the term Lords Chancellor used. As you will well know Hansard is not a verbatim account of debates and always makes corrections to MPs or Lords speeches when errors are made, therefore it is clear that the correct pluralisation is Lords Chancellor. --Wisden17 14:24, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your quick reply. I've contacted my MP, House of Lords Information Office and Hansard to see what their views are. I'll let you know the result of my inquires, as my MO at least should get back to me, as he is legally obliged to. --Wisden17 15:17, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
Hi, just to let you know my MP got back to me, very quickly (withing 24 hours) and he's written to the Lord Chancellor. So I'll let you know the outcome when I get some news. --Wisden17 19:41, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
If it helps, Lord High Chancellor → Lord High Chancellors, I think, no? -- ALoan (Talk) 22:21, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
It's exactly the same issue, I personally would say Lords HIgh Chancellor, and indeed this I would argue is the correct form of the compound plural (I don't know if you know much about compound plurals, but worth researching, e.g. court martial → courts martial). I'll be interested to see what the Lord Chancellor's Office have to say. --Wisden17 22:35, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Well, I don't think that there is any dispute about "courts martial," "attorneys general," "sons-in-law," and so forth. In each of these cases, the first part is a noun, and the second an adjective. However, this is not the case with "Lord Chancellor." -- Emsworth 22:45, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
But I would contend that Lord Chancellor is a noun adjective construction. Lord is a noun, the Lord Chancellor has to be a Member of the House of Lords, thus has to be a Lord (which is a noun) and he is a 'special' Lord, in the sense that he is a Lord with the position of Chancellor, thus Chancellor acts as an adjective. Thus Lord Chancellor, with the adjective Chancellor, separates him from simply a Lord.
I note Encylopedia Britanica use 'Lords Chancellor' and Answers.com --Wisden17 23:14, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
The Lord Chancellor need not be a Lord; several commoners have been appointed to this position. The Lord Chancellor is not a special Lord, but a special Chancellor (as opposed to, for example, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Chancellor of Oxford University). He is often referred to as "the Chancellor"; he is never called "the Lord." -- Emsworth 23:31, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Fair point, but I'm still not convinced. The point about reference to him as the Chancellor is beside the point really, and the appointment of commoners whilst interesting does not change the logic. Surely upon appointment to the position of Lord Chancellor one would have to be enobled otherwise how can one sit in the House? --Wisden17 00:00, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps a little more serious than the plural form, our article is out of date now that parts of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 have come into force - [4] -- ALoan (Talk) 00:14, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Wikimania[edit]

Dear Emsworth,

A long-time Wodehouse fan, I have enjoyed your contributions since before your dominance of the FA pages. I hope that you are considering attending Wikimania this summer in Cambridge [conveniently in our fair country]. Would you be interested in organizing discussions around the conference? Perhaps one concerning research and excellent writing, from a wikipedian's perspective. There will be many encyclopedists and outside researchers in attendance with their own views; and many of the participants in the online parts of the conference would benefit from such discourse.

Drop me a line, and be well, +sj + 21:41, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the fast reply. Would you be interested in taking part, in some limited degree, online? That is where most of the discussions will take place. And there may be some scholarships available for community members... +sj + 01:21, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Descendents of Edward IV and Henry VII[edit]

What sort of social rank would one have to bear in their family, in order to be a descendent of either?

How far up the totem pole, would you say?

This is intended to have broad answers and based on gradients of time and population, not going into specifics about exact descendents. About how common is their descent in the English or British genepool today?

I've noticed that American Presidents don't descend from either king, but the most common recent royal ancestor shared by many of us is Edward III. How common is it for anybody in the English or British genepool, to have a Protestant royal ancestor?

There is a general cutoff, isn't there?

Is it because of fratricide in the Wars of the Roses, the Tudors' "new men", or the Union of the Crowns, or the parliamentary union under Queen Anne (I can't think of any non-royal family descent from the Hanoverians within the UK)?

I'm thinking that there is a big difference between Plantagenet and Tudor descents, that the commons in all likelihood have the former and the latter is held by the lords. (just generally speaking) Then again, Tudor descent in the Welsh must be higher in general. I am further curious about pre-Royal Tudor blood in Anglo-British people today, since the status and/or concept of Welsh royalty/nobility is rather hazy in my mind. I found the Blevins aka Ap Bleddyn family of Powys in my ancestry, but have no real idea on what to make of it--or any other Welsh "native aristocracy". I might be able to find Stewart descent somewhere, from way back when. What percentage of Hanoverian background do you think that German colonists had in America?

On the British side, I have to go as far back as Welf himself...but any recent genetic relationship with the Hanoverians or the counts of Nassau are completely obscure. How does one research those other colonial people, such as the Hessians?

UK genealogy is relatively easy when focusing on English (and French) ancestries. What would a "national person" of Jerusalem (or Antioch, for example) in Crusader times be known as?

We say "American" for those Founders, but was there such a nationality-term for the Crusaders in their own domains?

I guess the term is supposed to be Levantine/Outremer, or "Crusader" as our national heritage says "Colonist"...

Papal conclave[edit]

Hey. I saw that you had created the Papal conclave article, but it refers only to the Roman Catholic Church. Would you be interested in expanding your article to include the process of electing a pope in the Coptic Church? [5] I was writing a stub about a guy who apparently got the most votes to be Pope, but he lost when someone else's name was drawn from a hat. I thought you might have more interest and knowledge about that than I do.

Awesome Stuff[edit]

I've just finished reading your article on the Lord Chancellor, and I must say it is very impressive indeed. Props to you for your evident effort in quality research and concise writing. :)

Pope Benedict XIII[edit]

Sir,

In the page Pope Benedict XIII, you've added in 2004 that he avoided at first to be called Benedict XIII "due to the superstition alleging that the number thirteen brings bad luck" (see here). I agree he chose at first to be called Benedict XIV, but the reason is not clear. What is your source to affirm it was due to superstition? Was it a mere supposition or a fact?

While you are here...[edit]

Ahh, you've alerted me to your presence by venturing into PR, now you only have yourself to blame.

Do you by any chance have any recollection where this came from in the Order of St. Patrick (the italicised section):

At a considerably smaller scale, to the back of the stall was affixed a piece of brass (a "stall plate") displaying its occupant's name, arms and date of admission into the Order. Upon the death of a Knight, the banner, helm, mantling, crest (or coronet or crown) and sword were taken down. The stall plates remained permanently affixed, so that the stalls of the chapel maintained a colourful record of the Order's Knights.

A few of us have been working to save it from being de-FAed and just can't track down a citation for that claim. No worries if you don't have time, or can't remember where it came from, but I don't like to remove stuff if it can be sourced. Cheers, Yomanganitalk 16:48, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

This so minor, I can't help laughing just bringing it up.[edit]

Can I interest you in looking up the facts of the matter behind who is *genuinely* the pretender (yes, I know this too humorous for words, isn't it) to the "Finnish Throne" (again, I can't emphasize how much makes me split my sides laughing). According to wikipedia that would be Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse, who is the head of the House of Hesse. But also according to wikipedia Prince Philip of Hesse-Kassel - his father... was not going to be the crown prince for the "Finnish Throne" (note the scare quotes, I think them very appropriate here). On the other hand - "At Frederick's death, his eldest surviving son, Philipp, succeeded him as head. However, according to certain family documents and correspondence, his successor as King of Finland would have been his second surviving son Prince Wolfgang of Hesse (1896–1989), apparently because Wolfgang was with his parents in 1918 and ready to travel to Finland, where a wedding to a Finnish lady was already in preparation for the coming Crown Prince." - so sayeth the article Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse. I honestly have not the faintest idea of the legalities of any of this. Prince Wolfgang of Hesses article claims that he died without issue, and thus the (as humorous as it may appear, I repeat) pretendership would have passed to his brother Philipp. However I have just today read a Finnish magazine that claims that the (again very funny) claim to a Finnish Throne would not have automatically passed on to his brother, but to some chap I have never heard of before, called Donatus. If you can make head or tail of this, you are truly a better man than I. I can try to copy some of the details from that magazine article, as it seems wikipedia doesn't have them. I can't tell you how much this all amuses me, truly. Of all things... The Finnish Throne. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. 05:55, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

P.S. Heinrich, Hereditary Prince of Hesse seems to be the chap they have in mind. Again, I really don't understand the legalities of this at all, but I will try to copy the argument soon, as I reread the article in more detail. But if you have a cut and dried interpretation on this matter, that would of course help muchly in this *so* serious matter (laughs). -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. 06:07, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

TFA/R revamping[edit]

I have proposed revising the WP:TFA/R process. After the recent rejection of my proposal, I researched Old FAs. You were the nominator of several articles that were promoted to WP:FA before 2005, and you continue to be an active wikipedian. Many of your articles have not yet been featured on the main page as a WP:TFA. I am wondering if you have ever made an active effort to get them featured and if you are aware of the new TFA/R procedure, which requires an active request. Please respond to my talk page.

I'm a journalist for the Observer in London writing a story about Wikipedia.

List of Circuit Judges of England and Wales[edit]

A "{{prod}}" template has been added to the article List of Circuit Judges of England and Wales, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised.

Replaceable fair use Image:Speaker_of_the_British_H_of_Commons.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Speaker_of_the_British_H_of_Commons.jpg. I noticed 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 even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 03:36, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for all your work[edit]

Thanks for all the great work you did for this wonderful website; you are truly a great contributor, and even now you have slowed down a bit due college (can't believe your still at school!), I think you are among the most value-able contributors to the whole wikipedia. -The Bold Guy- 14:09, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:UK House of Commons Chamber.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:UK House of Commons Chamber.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. Jay32183 19:02, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:UK House of Commons Chamber.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:UK House of Commons Chamber.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 '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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Jay32183 03:06, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Scotland[edit]

hello, User:Astrotrain is trying to place the Arms of Great Britain on the Scotland page. This user claims on User talk:Astrotrain that "They are the Queen's Royal Arms, and they were linked to the relevant page. You can find the compromise agreement in the archives of the Scotland talk page." I finally located in the archives [archives] a conversation which involved yourself. My understanding from reading these archives is that there was no clear compromise, and if there was, it was to keep the status quo and not add the arms. I am contacting you over this matter as User:Astrotrain is continuing to try to add the said arms and has today stated in Talk:Scotland "There was a clear consensus, you can ask any of the other editors. I suspect you have other motives for making these changes. If you insist on moving the arms, they will be reinstated in the infobox then.". Yours, Czar Brodie (talk) 22:07, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as the Wikipedia:Business' FAQ for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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.

Image source problem with Image:Order of the Garter robes.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Order of the Garter robes.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:24, 26 August 2008 (UTC).

Action requested[edit]

Dear administrator; I read an article Islamic Emirate of Waziristan related to Waziristan, Paksitan. It is written that this is an organization but no such organization exists, althoug ther are others. From where does the name Islamic emirate of waziristan come from?? If it is a group as mentioned then no group ever used this name. It is not mentioned in any sources out of the ones provided. The name should be changed or merged with Waziristan. It also wrongly points to other language articles on waziristan (arabic eg) which is not correct as the original article Waziristan also points to the same. Despite lot of time after this objection and no proof provided from any source, the name of the article has not been changed or merged with the original article on waziristan. I request administrators to take action.

I write to you because no decision has been taken since long time even though this has been discussed on the discussion page.

AfD nomination of George Boleyn (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is George Boleyn (disambiguation). We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/George Boleyn (disambiguation). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:18, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom GA review[edit]

A review to see if Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom meets Wikipedia:Good article criteria has started, and has been put on hold. Suggestions for improvement are at Talk:Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom/GA2, and are mainly to do with coverage and neutrality, and building the lead section. Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom is one of our most high profile and popular articles, attracting an average of over 11,000 readers every day. You have made more than 20 edits to the article, and so you might be interested in helping to make the improvements needed to get it listed as a Good Article.

File permission problem with File:Tynwald hill (Isle of Man).jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Tynwald hill (Isle of Man).jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may 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. Kelly hi! 09:07, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Need Help with the photo[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Thomas_Hesketh_Douglas_Blair_Cochrane,_Baron_Cochrane,_later_13th_Earl_of_Dundonald_%281886-1958%29.jpg

I have included as much information as I had including the negative serial number in case someone needs to confirm the photo and its identity with Lafayette studios.

I would try to do an internet search to see if it shows up, but it wouldn't.

Please help if you can since I am horrible with computers and simply want Lord Cochrane to be given his due respect.

Cheers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.95.128.40 (talk) 00:09, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
