Welcome!

Hello, Lottamiata, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions.

Amazing[edit]

I just wanted to say that your edit summaries to French Revolution are astonishingly good. When you're done, I'm going to re-read them all and learn lots about good English grammar, despite speaking it natively! Great stuff, enjoy editing. -Splashtalk 23:41, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

It's good to have someone around cleaning up Wikipedia's written style. Have I travelled from East to West? I'm not sure what you mean; I'm not from the US. But in the US, yes, actually, I have travelled from New York to California (and most of the way back) on a holiday a few years back. From the 'real' East, no, I've never been there, more's the pity. -Splashtalk 00:04, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

There are no dues required to edit or use Wikipedia. Anyone may use the content provided here for free, subject to the GFDL and anyone may edit here for free as well. Becoming a Wikipedia:Administrator is not too hard; it takes a few months of good editing and easy-going interactions with other users and then you ask at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship. Admins just have access to a few additional tools that help the business of cleaning up the various parts of the project that need it. They aren't a 'higher' class of editor, and they don't acquire any additional editorial tools, apart from the ability to edit protected pages, but policy prevents them from doing so. Voting in Arbitration Committee elections usually takes place at the end of the calendar year. The 2005 elections were delayed until about a month ago, so you've just missed them. The suffrage requirements were that your account have been around for a couple of months and have a minimal quantity (150) of edits. This is just so that the less-pleasant users are not able to disrupt things by making a rash of new accounts; don't let the requirements put you off. Voting in Foundation elections is done only occasionally now, with the next elections in 2007. Elections are not the way most things are done around here, since we try to rely on consensual decision making rather than voting. But all of that is secondary to actually writing and improving the encyclopedia: without that, everything else would be pretty pointless! -Splashtalk 00:34, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

re Freemasonry[edit]

Thankyou.

I'd been reading MQ just before I saw your improvement to the opening paragraphs and thought it would be appropriate to use. RegardsALR 16:44, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

empty articles[edit]

I've just marked a bunch of your articles with {{db-empty}}. If you're going to create an article, I would suggest actually putting something in there other than just {{stub}} so it doesn't get speedy deleted. Here's a list of what I've marked so far, just so you know:

Another comment on the empty articles[edit]

I have tried to expand some of these articles, but I am not a lawyer. Could you please try to expand them further and fix any errors that I may have made? -TruthbringerToronto 19:28, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. It was very helpful.Lottamiata 18:46, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Lipník[edit]

Thank you for your kind words you e-mailed me. I am also interested in the history of your country, I think researching back your ancestry is quite fascinating. I am ethnic Pole, living in the Czech Republic, in the beautiful town of Czeski Cieszyn. If you prefer contact by e-mail, just let me know. - Darwinek 15:33, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Regarding Association of Members' Advocates[edit]

Hi, you are receiving this message because you have listed yourself as an active member of WP:AMA. If you aren't currently accepting inquiries for AMA, or if you have resigned, please de-list yourself from Wikipedia:AMA Members. If you are still active, please consider tending to any new requests that may appear on Category:AMA Requests for Assistance. We're going to put AMA on wheels. :) Sorry for the template spamming - we're just trying to update our records, after we had a huge backlog earlier in the week (if you've been taking cases, then sorry, and please ignore this :)). Again, sorry, and thanks! Martinp23 21:06, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Regarding edits made to Scottish Rite[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Lottamiata! 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 \bexample\.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 22:08, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

listing Masonic Lodge officers[edit]

Hi Lottamiata... I don't think we can list all of the different lodge officers beyond the Master and two Wardens ... even Deacons are iffy. There is a HUGE variation of practice between different jurisdictions. Some have Stewards and some don't, some have an Inner Guard and some don't, some have Masters of Ceremonies and some don't... The article is supposed to be general to all jurisdictions. Blueboar 19:31, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:72 hoyt.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:72 hoyt.gif. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 16:05, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

maximal system[edit]

I noticed the maximal system article when an IP editor added what appear to be vanity links to axiomatic system pointing to it. You added categories (a lot of them) to maximal system in February. Can you provide any reference? As it is currently written, the article could be mistaken for unpublished research. CMummert · talk 20:39, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

No harm has been done. In this situation, I would recommend moving the article to your user space until you add references. With one or more references to reliable sources, the article would be fine. I assume that you are the main author of the article.
To move the article, the easiest thing to do is cut and paste. Click this red link: User:Lottamiata/Maximal system, start the new page, and cut and paste the body of the article there. Then replace then entire body of Maximal system with {{Db-author}}. This will let the janitors know to delete the empty page. Try to find some print references in a month or so, and then you can copy and paste the page back to its old location. CMummert · talk 01:08, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

your sig in place of mine[edit]

Odd how that happened. Now fixed. Rosenbluh

Orphaned fair use image (Image:72 hoyt.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:72 hoyt.gif. 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 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. BetacommandBot 06:18, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination[edit]

A tag has been placed on La Bonne Soupe Café, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under 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 general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Lilac Soul 16:19, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project. You have been identified as a project member and your input as to this matter would be welcomed at WT:CVU#Inactive.3F and at the deletion debate. Thank you!

Your last edit to History of Freemasonry[edit]

While it is apparent to Freemasons that Freemasonry promotes tolerance, we're writing for a general audience, so that statement borders on OR without a source. I for one cannot recall offhand ever seeing that stated clearly in any literature, though I may have overlooked it as a matter of course. Have you got a source for that? MSJapan 05:55, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I figured it was along those lines. It's a little too close to synthesis for my liking, as you're really drawing a conclusion based on evidence as opposed to citing a known fact. MSJapan 02:55, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

History of quantum mechanics[edit]

You could create a "timeline of physical chemistry" and update timeline of particle physics with the material that you're putting into history of quantum mechanics. --Michael C. Price talk 03:42, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that is a very good idea. Lottamiata (talk) 03:49, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Take a look at the discussion on the talk page Talk:History of quantum mechanics#Timeline. --Bduke (Discussion) 06:39, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of California gubernatorial elections 2010[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on California gubernatorial elections 2010 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Wikimedia California chapter articles of incorporation and agent[edit]

Removed. Banned user Nrcprm2026 is not permitted to edit. Hipocrite (talk) 18:39, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I am willing to act as the initial agent for service of process. Please contact me by email so that I can send you my contact information (I don't have your Wikipedia user name since the signature to your message is an IP address). Also, I would need to research this but I am not sure that a mutual benefit corporation is tax exempt. Lottamiata (talk) 07:40, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Actually, if my memory serves me correctly, a mutual benefit corporation might be tax exempt but the donors to it may not deduct their donations from their taxes because a mutual benefit corporation does not fall within Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) or a similar statute permitting tax deductability for the donations. Lottamiata (talk) 07:43, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, would you be so kind as to give us support![edit]

Hello, I hope you're doing fine and I sincerely apologize for this intrusion. I'm Claudi Balaguer, a member of a Catalan association "Amical de la Viquipèdia" which is trying to get some recognition as a Catalan Chapter but this hasn't been approved up to that moment. I know that you are also trying to obtain a Californian Chapter and I sincerely hope that you will succeed and I think that all the members of our association feel likewise because denying it implies, in my opinion, going against the spreading of knowledge creating boundaries to creativity and collective voluntary work. So maybe I am not bothering you and you will help us... We would appreciate your support, visible if you stick this on your first page: Wikimedia CAT. Supporting us will be like giving equal opportunity to minorized languages, cultures and local or regional entities in the future! Thanks again, wishing you a great summer, take care! I wish I could visit your great, beautiful and sunny region once more soon! Thanks to your page I've finally known what's a Wikignome! If you ever need my (probably "our" too) help you can count on me even though I'm currently really far away from California. Capsot (talk) 15:46, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Friends of Edghill Mountain Park logo.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Friends of Edghill Mountain Park logo.jpg, which you've sourced to Paul Furman and the Friends of Edgehill Mountain. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image 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. MilborneOne (talk) 16:17, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Regarding your edits to Prehistoric Britain, it is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, reduces edit conflicts, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thank you. --Pitke (talk) 23:12, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Samuel F. Chavez[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Samuel F. Chavez has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Eeekster (talk) 03:13, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Sam chavez razorbacks.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Sam chavez razorbacks.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Eeekster (talk) 03:45, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Sam_chavez_razorbacks.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Sam_chavez_razorbacks.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) 04:50, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Samuel F. Chavez, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cuban (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Charles Henry McKiernan[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Charles Henry McKiernan, and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://scplweb.santacruzpl.org/history/people/mtcharl.shtml.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 22:51, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Most of the content has had to be removed from this article. Please review Wikipedia:Copy-paste. We are seldom able to copy from or closely follow previous publications. You're welcome to add information on this man, but please put it in your own words, except where you are using brief and clearly cited quotations.
