Information icon Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of published material to articles as you apparently did to Provinces of Papua New Guinea. Please cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 01:31, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to University of Regina may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Your 19:20, 10 June 2013 edit to Regina, Saskatchewan[edit]

The pronunciation /rɨˈnə/ is not "unknown" as you put it. It is used by many people from outside of Regina. Is the policy on Wikipedia that we should only show the pronunciation of natives of a place? If that's the case, then fair enough. Accentman (talk) 01:18, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

It's not only the pronunciation of "natives of [that] place." It is used by all Canadians and by non-Anglophone visitors from elsewhere the moment they hear the correct one. It is the English pronunciation; of course it's not the RC pronunciation of Latin music and liturgy, but it was certainly that of Princess Louise when she renamed Buffalo Bones for her mother in 1882, there already being too many Victorias in the British Empire for there to be another. I don't think that anyone even here in Australia would commit that error, and would welcome being corrected if they did. Masalai (talk) 05:01, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
I think you greatly overestimate people's ability to pronounce foreign placenames. Accentman (talk) 09:03, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Stating the correct pronunciation is quite sufficient. Setting out incorrect pronunciations is beyond superfluous. Masalai (talk) 12:08, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Beth Jacob Synagogue Regina Saskatchewan.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Beth Jacob Synagogue Regina Saskatchewan.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for 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}} 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. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy.

Thanks[edit]

Hi :) Thanks very much for your recent uploads of self-taken pictures in Port Moresby - it's something we've wanted to have on here for a long time! I'm from Australia and have never been to PNG but did a fair bit of work on the articles. If there's any suburbs you have photos of that we don't have an article for, feel free to just create a short article and let me know so the formatting, linkage etc can be standardised. Once again thanks! :) Orderinchaos 10:47, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:General Motors factory, Regina, 1928.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:General Motors factory, Regina, 1928.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, 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) 12:03, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Better source request for some of your uploads[edit]

Thanks for your uploads to Wikipedia. There is an issue with some of them, specifically:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the images because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the images, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image files themselves. Please update the image descriptions with URLs that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:07, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
