Drop by, have a cup of tea[edit]

Hey Marnanel -- you seem to be another editor who knows quite a bit about interactive fiction. I'm making a concerted effort to flesh out the IF articles around here -- the first one I've worked on is Inform. Do you feel like helping out? We could divide up tasks. Adam Conover 19:57, Feb 19, 2004 (UTC)

  • Sure, I'd love to. What needs doing? Marnanel 20:55, 19 Feb 2004 (UTC)
  • Well, IIRC there's not much in Glulx. Unfortunately, I'm not as familiar with it as I am with Inform. We could also use more information on the Z-machine, I think. As for Inform I've been trying to give it a more full treatment as a programming language, and I think that TADS could use the same sort of work. Finally, I'm hoping to document more of the important works and events in modern IF history -- the "Notable Games Written in Inform" section of Inform makes a brief stab at that, and a few of those games and authors have their own articles. In general, though, I think it would be terrific if we could create a lot of encyclopediac material about the works that deserve it, and integrate it into a sort of timeline. What are you thoughts? Adam Conover 21:51, Feb 19, 2004 (UTC)
    • I know a bit about Glulx, so I could put that together; I don't know that much about TADS, though. Modern IF history (games, people) certainly need some description, yes-- if a game wins the IFComp it's probably worth writing about, and there are many others. (I like the writeup at Photopia, and the way it concentrates on the influences the game had and made within the genre.) Once we get that underway a little, we might invite ideas from rec.arts.int-fiction about what articles are needed. I'm not sure what else can be said in a brief nontechnical overview of the Z-machine. I looked at Java virtual machine for comparison, but that entry has even less about the guts of that virtual machine. Marnanel 01:18, 20 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • I don't know... Java virtual machine looks pretty technical to me! And no, I don't know that much about TADS either. Perhaps we could co opt someone? As for the other stuff, I don't know if you hang out on ifMUD, but I was trying to pick some brains there. The definition I decided on for the "Notable Games" listing in Inform were "Games that were milestones in the history of interactive fiction" -- that is, games that established trends or set major watermarks -- and I tried to describe how they did so in the list. What do you think of that definition? Also, maybe we should set up a page to dicuss this effort separately? From what I gather, a WikiProject page isn't exactly what we'd be looking for, but perhaps something in between? We could make up a list of tasks, etc. Interested? Adam Conover 01:46, Feb 20, 2004 (UTC)

Arms[edit]

Hi. When you add arms to pages with a box, could you make them actually int he box? Like what i've done to Chiltern (district) - having them stacked side by side isn't really very appealing. One day we will have a better countrybox like format. Morwen 22:50, Mar 8, 2004 (UTC)

Oo, sure, will do. Marnanel 22:52, 8 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Flag of Scotland[edit]

Howdy. I think your new image for Flag of Scotland is a great improvement its chubby predecessor. I wonder if you could do me a favour - could you possibly produce an identical version, only with the azure as something near to Pantone-300 (which photoshop says is around rgb(0,103,198) == #0067c6). I think the article should show both - one your more traditional sky-blueish one, and the second the cryptostandard pantone 300 one. Given the entertaining colour-discussion in the article itself, does that seem like a good idea? -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 19:26, 22 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Sure, how's this?

Excellent, thankyou. I've updated the article accordingly, making it look accurately muddleheaded :) -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 21:03, 22 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Screaming Lord Sutch[edit]

I read in the Gueiness Book that he contested every election he ever ran in. Therefore, if he contested over 40, he must have ran in over 40. user:J.J.

Ahh, okay, fair enough. I guess the word has a different meaning in the UK. Here, to "contest" means to challenge.

Table placement[edit]

Hi, and thanks for fixing the table in BBC Micro#Specifications. Do you by any chance know how one would horizontally adjust such a table within a bullet list? The best placement would undoubtedly be in line with the lists indentation at the level the table is placed in. So far a method of attaining this has eluded me... Any hints would be appreciated. --Wernher 09:25, 6 May 2004 (UTC)

Extreme POV Edits to Articles[edit]

I agree that that sort of nonsense is absolutely unacceptable. It's purely an opinion based on a personal agenda, and there's a place and way to note that -- but that guy wasn't interested in following policy. But note that he's put it in twice! He probably won't stop. We may have to get him banned. jaknouse 19:29, 12 May 2004 (UTC)

comment[edit]

His comment was so insipid, self-important, and infuriating it simply had to be responded to. I did have to spend some time making the response civil, though <g>. In light of your remarks, I'm happy you saw it. I hope the original author sees it as well, and takes a moment to reconsider his remark...but let's not hold our breath! All the best, - Nunh-huh 16:41, 11 Jun 2004 (UTC)


80x15 link button[edit]

from the pump

In case it's useful to anyone, tonight I made this:

Wikipedia banner.png

It's the vaguely-standard link button size of 80x15. Feel free to use it to link to Wikipedia. Marnanel 01:04, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)

I've added a link to it under Wikipedia:Citing Wikipedia. —Steven G. Johnson 02:11, Jun 14, 2004 (UTC)
My understanding is that the nohat logo is not GFDL. See m:Logo -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 03:27, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Given what I see there, Finlay, I would argue that Marnanel's work is derivative, and that nohat's only request for derivative works is that they be released under the GFDL, which it's my understanding that Marnanel's work is. Is there a section I'm misreading? Jwrosenzweig 19:50, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)
My understanding is that nohat hasn't yet agreed to the terms on that page, so they're pending terms, not current ones. On the assumption that he does approve them, those terms request that derivative works be licenced under the GFDL (I think that implies, but doesn't prove) that the original isn't GFDL - the restriction would already be there were the original GFDL. Don't misunderstand me - I'm not critisising Nohat or Marnanel or their work at all (they're lovely - the work, that is). Indeed, I think that the logo and marnanel's button shouldn't be GFDL. Just like the wikipedia trademark, ideally they'd belong to Wikimedia (or have Wikimedia in particular be granted a rather broad licence to them). If the logo were GFDL, then any of our mirrors could blithely use them, change them as they saw fit, and change the link target to point not to wikipedia but to the mirror. By way of a (somewhat extreme) example, Sun Microsystems has a "jump to java" webbutton, the only redistributable use of their "Duke" character (roughly a logo for their Java technology). The terms they impose on users of the webbutton is that the button be accompanied by html (essentially, the link text and destination) supplied by Sun. So you couldn't use their button but point it somewhere else. That seems like a reasonable thing we'd like to think about for users of buttons like Marnanel's (and, not to belabour the point, but that's something we can only achieve if the image isn't GFDL) -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 20:41, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)

"assumed fair use"[edit]

Hello. I saw your upload of the NJ Transit logo. Image:NJ_Transit_logo.png In that description, you say, "used for identification, assumed fair use". Is there a wikipedia policy describing this practice? I'm curious because I'd like to upload some similar logos and want to make sure that it is indeed a fair use. Thanks. --ChrisRuvolo 09:22, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Fair_use covers, I'm led to believe. Marnanel 03:18, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Looks good, thanks, that clears things up. FYI, I just uploaded a somewhat cleaner versions of the logo that includes their "The Way to Go" tagline. Thanks for getting back to me. I wouldn't have realized logos were fair use if I hadn't seen your contribution. --ChrisRuvolo 06:45, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Sidney crestshield[edit]

Hi, I noticed you're interested in heraldry and Sidney... do you know what the thing on the right of the sidney shield is meant to be? I've only found little bitmaps on the web which are too small to decipher. Any better image or the blazon would be helpful. Cheers, Lupin 09:52, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

It's argent a bend engrailed sable, impaling or a pheon azure. A pheon is a "broad arrow", the same device that was once printed on prisoners' clothes: perhaps some member of the Sidney family was once in charge of prisons. Marnanel 13:04, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)
There's a lot more on the pheon and government property in the pheon article. More relevantly here, the pheon is a charge on the arms of the Sidney family. --Orange Mike | Talk 17:53, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I do agree with you. Sorry it took so long to reply, I've just come back from the Shetlands. If you have time, check out this entertaining web site - www.unstbusshelter.shetland.co.uk Deb 10:04, 18 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Not at the moment. However, I may make one. Morwen - Talk 07:00, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC)

GB/UK[edit]

Hi there,

I read the text: Lundy is an island in the Bristol Channel of Great Britain and took the word of as possessive. You may be interpreting it more like off. It could probably be interpreted either way in the current from. The wording is a bit weird and probably needs revision.

I read the text: Map of Lundy with inset maps of Great Britain & Bristol Channel and saw that the greater area picture was actually of the United Kingdom. I think that is a reasonable interpretation.

However, I am not too worried either way. Feel free to make further change or leave it.

Thanks.

NATO not part of EU

Inference in WEU article and the lack of information on a military side of EU as described on their site and with sidebar conversations I have had with others who do not understand the interdependence of the various organizations. --Tomtom 14:40, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)

White border[edit]

When flown by civilians the flag should have a white border, but this is rarely seen now.

I've never heard of this; what evidence do we have for the assertion? Marnanel 20:17, 23 Jul 2004 (UTC)

The flag is sometimes refered to as the Pilots' Jack and traces it creation back to 1823 when it was created as a signal flag, and never intended as a civil jack. A book explaining the Act was issued to British consuls in 1855. It states that the white bordered Union Jack is the flag to be hoisted for a pilot, although it was being used by that time as a jack and the use of the Red Ensign for merchant shipping was not established until 1864. There was some ambiguity as to the legality of using as a jack although the practise was not acted upon by the authorities, partly because of fears that it would rise to demands that the merchany fleet be allowed to use the Uion Jack, a practice that the Admirialty did not want for no more than abitrary reasons and a possible superiority complex
In 1970 the white-bordered Union Jack ceased to be the signal for a pilot, but references to it as national colours were not removed from the current Merchant Shipping Act. It thus became a flag that could legally be flown on a civil ship, as a jack if desired. This status was confirmed by the Merchant Shipping (Registration, etc.) Act 1993. From which prohibits the use of any distinctive national colours or those used or resembling flags or pendants on Her Majesty's Ships, except:
  1. the red ensign
  2. the Union flag with white border
  3. any colours authorised or confirmed elsewhere in the same Act.
Hence it might well be considered a civil jack, but that only applies at sea. Dainamo 15:46, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Image:Mentha spicata.jpg[edit]

Hi there! Thanks for adding the image Image:Mentha spicata.jpg. It currently doesn't have an image copyright tag, and I was hoping that you would add one as untagged images may be deleted eventually.

Arms permissions.[edit]

I am looking at tagging all the Arms-of images. Reading your notes I can see they are {{permission}} but are they {{GFDL}}? In other words is the owner happy for others to use them provided acknowledgement is made? Rgds Rich Farmbrough 17:45, 28 Sep 2004 (UTC)

User page protection[edit]

I am sending this message to a group of seasoned users whose opinions I respect. My aim is not to draw you into a dispute, but to canvass opinion on a contentious area of policy. If you have a few minutes to spare, please see the debate currently under way at Wikipedia talk:Protection policy, with particular reference to user page protection. For some reason, I seem to have fallen foul of a group of sysops who have made it their business to stamp out the practice of protecting one’s own user page. A sensible (in my opinion) proposal has been made to amend the policy, and I would be grateful if you would add your view, assuming you have one. Cheers. Deb 13:19, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Category:Individual computers[edit]

Hello, there. Due to ambiguity, there seems to be a need for said category to be renamed---the new name should most probably be "Category:One-of-a-kind computers". See the "Early computers" category talk page for the discussion about this; pitch in if you like. If you agree with the suggestion, please indicate so on the talk page; it would let us do the practical renaming work much quicker. BTW, thanks for creating the category in the first place! :-) --Wernher 07:06, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

County arms question[edit]

Hi - I'm hoping you';ll be able to help me, since you seem to know more about this subject than I do. I was looking for the Somerset Coat of Arms to add to a new stub template for places in Somerset, and found an image of them on-line. I copied the arms by hand (excluding the motto scroll), scanned my drawing and messed around with it in photoshop, producing Image:Somersetarms.png. Question is - what is its copyright status? Do I claim it as "Fair use", or is there a better category of image use to classify it under? (BTW - I see from your user page that we have something vaguely in common - You're from Hitchin and living in the US - I'm from Barnet and living in New Zealand). Grutness...wha? 09:14, 5 August 2005 (UTC)

Don't worry - another message further up your talk page gives me more info - I've listed it at Wikipedia:Requested copyright examinations. Grutness...wha? 01:48, 6 August 2005 (UTC)

Marquess of Ely[edit]

"I'm curious-- why was he given an Irish peerage?"

He was an Irish MP albeit, as with most protestants was, English by decent. His wife's family had been viscounts then earls of Ely so - when those titles became extinct - being a clever soul he changed his name to that of her family and using his wealth parlimentary position/support tried to get the titles recreated in his favour. Irish titles were always much easier to get due to their generally lower status and precedence.Alci12 23:38, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Dp-sarasvati.jpg[edit]

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.

Image copyright problem with Image:Dp-sarasvati.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Dp-sarasvati.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stifle (talk) 08:45, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Please have a look[edit]

Please have a look at this. As I understand it, representations of coats of arms are copyrightable; they are the creation of the artist who made them. However, the descriptions of the coats of arms do not create derivative encumbrances on images made based on their descriptions. Thus, an artist who renders a graphic of the coats of arms description is not infringing on the rights of the entity which holds rights to the coats of arms. Thus, the site you gathered the excellent coats of arms images from can release rights to the images they themselves have created. The problem here is that we do not have a definitive release as to their copyright status, only that we can use them with credit given. Please see the above link for how I think we should proceed. Without release of rights, we can't even use these images under a fair use claim because the renderings of the coats of arms descriptions are not unique; anyone can take the descriptions and create their own version of the arms. All the best, --Durin 05:17, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Vote at Talk:Roman Catholic Church[edit]

Hi, Marnael. I hope you can reconsider your vote in the straw poll at Talk:Roman Catholic Church.

The comparison you made with "Christian Church" is very interesting, but it is not a perfect comparison, as another user has noted in a comment following your vote in the page. I also believe the last part of your text there reflects a common misunderstanding about how the NPOV policy is to be applied to naming conventions. In Here there is an explanation about that. But I think it's even better to check the explanation for that in Wikipedia:Naming conflict#Dealing with self-identifying terms.

Thanks for considering my arguments. Best wishes. --Leinad ¬ Flag of Brazil.svg »saudações! 06:43, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Hedd Wyn.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Hedd Wyn.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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. 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 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Angr 14:07, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Gnome template[edit]

Hello hello. As a regular reader of Planet GNOME and thus your blog, it's nice to touch base with you personally.

I'm currently wanting to create a GNOME software template much like what has been done for Template:KDE. I left a comment on the GNOME article's talk page but it hasn't been replied to. As original creator of the template and active contributor to GNOME-related articles, I'd like to ask your opinion on the matter. Should I bother creating a spin-off just for software, or perhaps we can merge the two ideas in a satisfactory way? Thanks. — Sam 23:18, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't have a free-use image (or I'd have used it).

Leeke and Watt[edit]

The original info was that the building was to be torn down as the cathedral was completed. It looks like someone tried to update it to read that the building was to be kept and renovated last year, but they mangled it. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 17:30, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Salisbury[edit]

Hi, I have reverted the edit you made to this article. The assertion is made in the article on Wilton, Wiltshire though worded somewhat more precisely as should be expected in an article on the subject. Mallanox 00:54, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I believe some confusion has occured as the sign on entry to Wilton states "Ancient capital of Wessex". I will see if I can get some clarification on this point from the local library. Mallanox 01:15, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Military Cross[edit]

I'd say winning the third highest award for gallantry does confer notability and there are hundreds of people in the category to show that. I'd go ahead and write your article. The fact that you're related to the person doesn't preclude you writing an article so long as it's sourced. It's not like you have a direct financial interest in it.

Articals in Welsh[edit]

Hello Marnanel! I have an interest in coat of arms too and like yours displayed! Articals into Welsh, well, there are so many articals to publish in Welsh. I am a Welsh learner but not of any quality to write an artical. Personally and purely selfishly, my favorite artical I rewrote I would like to see in Welsh... Melisende of Jerusalem. It was the first artical I wrote here and I feel very proud of it, and seeing it in Welsh would be very helpful for me to learn the language. Other then that, I am uncertin at the importance of other articals of Welsh interest. I am currently rewritting the Plaid Cymru page and already created a Histroy of Plaid Cymru. I hope to hear from ya soon! Dydd da! Drachenfyre 20:38, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

History of Plaid Cymru! This artical should be so translated if you can! lol. I dont know why I didnt think on it! As Ive been working on it for some time. Also... possibly Welsh Peers.

Unspecified source for Image:Hp_sauce.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Hp_sauce.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, then 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, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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. 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 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 22:52, 29 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 22:52, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Fields of Athenry[edit]

The current popular and covered version is indeed Pete St. John's, but they're based on folk music and lyrics that go back to the 1800's (1880 or so specifically). The lyrics are different but fine to use on the page.

The Six Nations songs

There was a version which appeared in 1880 but the modern version was written by Pete StJohn in 1979 and recorded first by Paddy O'Reilly.

MIT Harp list discussion correcting a user who believed it to be from the 1500's, pointing out the melody is more modern, and citing the 1880's broadsheet

There are 2 tunes commonly used for these words (or varients therof) the more modern is to be found in collections of the more sentimental and mawkish pub ballads, the earlier one is simpler (3 chords, no modulation) and this is the tune that appears on the ballad sheet published by Devlin in Dublin and dated 1888. The words are slightly different to ost recorded versions that I have heard but hey, this is 'folk' music (whatever that it;-)

And finally our own sister project Wikisource has this on it:

Pete St. John is known as the author of this song, at least in its popular form, but the words go back to a broadsheet ballad that was published in the 1880's. One of them was published by Devlin in Dublin with a simple tune, which is very different than that of the modern song.

Hope that helps :) -Mask? 14:44, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

This was discussed in several fora--it does not appear that there has ever been a publisher called "Devlin" in Dublin; and no copy of such a broadsheet is known to exist. Hohenloh (talk) 22:48, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading or contributing to multiple images. Image:Arms-hertford.jpg Image:Arms-bishops-stortford.jpg Image:Arms-broxbourne.jpg Image:Arms-hertsmere.jpg Image:Arms-north-herts.jpg

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.

Fair use rationale for File:Arms-st-albans.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Arms-st-albans.jpg.

Crockus listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Crockus. Since you had some involvement with the Crockus redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so). ~ Jeff Q (talk) 04:25, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Reference desks[edit]

I hope you don't mind that I added your signature to this list. Regular doesn't mean frequent or on a daily basis, nor does it mean with a fixed pattern (in other words, it doesn't mean regular). It just means editors who, time and again, help out at the desks. If you object to being on that list, revert immediately, of course. ---Sluzzelin talk 21:33, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Monochrome BBS.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Monochrome BBS.png. 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.

Cadency & Martlet[edit]

Please see my reply on my talk page. On another matter: Your image may give the false impression that women in general use (or used throughout history) cadency marks on their arms, indeed that they had arms at all. I think it's true to say that throughout the whole history of heraldry this has not been the case. It may well have been adopted by modern Canadian heraldry, which is a tiny sub-section of the whole discipline and is not representative of the whole. Do you think your image might be misleading on this issue? I would prefer to see cadency for women stripped out of the lead image and dealt with in a separate section called "Modern female heraldry" or such-like.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Walk of Life (Dire Straits song), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Patch (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.

Annointed, my dear man, is quite acceptable. Good day.[edit]

I refer you to

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/annointed http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/annoint

If you prefer to use self-appointed, by all means, I concur, that also applies in this case. I must say too, that I apparently chose a less common non-standard spelling variant, but really, did that ever stop Shakespeare? Or the founders of Google[[3]]? Of course, I meant anointed in the figurative sense (see also consecrate http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/consecrate)

In summary, spelling ability (or lack there of) may be an indicator for how well educated someone might or might not be; however as a measure of genius it is sorely lacking. Garth of the Forest (talk) 19:34, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Hand-coding[edit]

Hey all :).

I'm dropping you a note because you've been involved in dealing with feedback from the Article Feedback Tool. To get a better handle on the overall quality of comments now that the tool has become a more established part of the reader experience, we're undertaking a round of hand coding - basically, taking a sample of feedback and marking each piece as inappropriate, helpful, so on - and would like anyone interested in improving the tool to participate :).

You can code as many or as few pieces of feedback as you want: this page should explain how to use the system, and there is a demo here. Once you're comfortable with the task, just drop me an email at okeyes@wikimedia.org and I'll set you up with an account :).

If you'd like to chat with us about the research, or want live tutoring on the software, there will be an office hours session on Monday 17 December at 23:00 UTC in #wikimedia-officeconnect. Hope to see some of you there! Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:35, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

MeeGo UX[edit]

Replaceable fair use File:Arms-cheshunt.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 15:01, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Arms Grey of Codnor.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Arms Grey of Codnor.png. 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, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 00:12, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
