Image Tagging Image:One_tree_hill.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:One_tree_hill.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag, so its copyright status is therefore unclear. Please add a tag to let us know its copyright status. (If you created/took the picture then you can use {{gfdl}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{fairuse}}.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know on the image description page where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Otherwise, see Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use. Thanks so much. --Secretlondon 18:58, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

Blanking of 742 Evergreen Terrace[edit]

Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content. Blank pages are harmful to Wikipedia because they have a tendency to confuse readers. If it is a duplicate article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalised, please revert it to the last legitimate version. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please edit the page and replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please see the deletion policy for how to proceed. Thanks for contributing to Wikipedia! -- Francs2000 00:52, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Xi Shun.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Xi Shun.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then 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 media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Just to clearify, pointing to imageshack isn't much use, a source is supposed to tell us who owns the rights to the image Sherool (talk) 01:28, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Tiny articles[edit]

"Cleo is a women's magazine" is not an article. It is a declaritive statement. It has also been deleted before for lack of content. Repeated reposting of what is considered nonsense is viewed as vandalism. Unless you can add a lot more, please do not repost that entry. Thank you. - Lucky 6.9 02:44, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Talk:List of the longest movies in history[edit]

Hey, I was wondering, since you've already gotten involved with the Cure for Insomnia dispute, if you wouldn't mind at least putting in your two cents regarding the rest of the issues under discussion at Talk:List of the longest movies in history? Would be very grateful to hear some more voices! Many thanks, Girolamo Savonarola 23:11, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the new comment. Actually, though, I was asking about the 200 minute vs. 300 minute debate, mainly! :) Well, if you have any extra time for that one too, I'd be much obliged. If not, no worries. Again, with many thanks, Girolamo Savonarola 01:09, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

City Island Article Images[edit]

Matt,

I have many piccys of City Island, Bronx, New York, that I would like to add to the article, but user Roy Smith and other creepy Deletionists here, will simply delete almost everything I add! There's absolutely no point! It's a waste of time and it has Jimbo's blessing! OK? Why add to such an article, when some Sixteen year old troll will wipe out your contribution is....CRAZY!

Bundaberg, Queensland[edit]

Hi Matt, I see that you recently added Anthony Athanasiov (boxer, better known as the Bundy Brawler) to the list of well-known inhabitants of Bundaberg. I question this addition, compared with everyone else on the list, who are indeed 'well-known' and therefore a justifiable entry on the list. I for one, have never heard of this guy and googled him to search for notoriety, but all that turned up were links to the Bundaberg Wikipedia article and other associated wikis. Therefore, he doesn't seem to be well-known or a worthy addition to the list. Was wondering if you could help me with this one? Cheers --- BrightLights 10:29, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Biased pageants[edit]

Well, I read your comment from the Miss Universe talk page, and I made a mention of that while writing the Big Four pageants article. When you mentioned sports there (distance runners coming from Africa, gymnasts coming from Russia and even Romania), the judgment of who is the best is more objective. For example, in athletics, it is based on time spent to complete the distance. I don't see any biases when an African country sweeps all the medal places there--they were the fastest and hence, they deserved their places. Although such a contention may not hold perfectly true for such sports as gymnastics and figure skating (note that these sports has recently made reforms to the judging system to make it less biased and prone to favoritism, and more objectively based). But in pageants, when choosing the judges itself is subjective, then there will always be a space for biased decisions (e.g. the 2001 Miss Universe pageant was controversial for fielding in mostly Puerto Rican judges, and most of them were sitting next to each other, not to mention being held in Puerto Rico; hence, Puerto Rico won, as some critics claimed). The Miss International pageant, meanwhile, is known for its standard of selecting porcelain doll beauties. With such a standard, how can a woman of color (especially of African descent) win? Still, to be fair, when critics complained about last year's lineup when Latin American delegates dominated the top 15 spots, one must not deny the fact that these are the countries/territories which invest the most to preparing their delegates (e.g. some countries select their delegates years in advance, to ensure proper training and experience, and even cosmetic procedures, unlike those from other regions which select theirs just months or even weeks before), in as much as Russia invests heavily in gymnastics discipline (and more recently, in tennis facilities) and African countries have environmental conditions ideal for the training of long-distance runners. --Joey80 06:49, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Image:Sasha and Will.jpg[edit]

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

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{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 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 any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will 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. --Chowbok 20:20, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

The following images you uploaded may also illustrate a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created:

Reagan and Bush Changes/Military Service[edit]

First of all, as a veteran, I take great offense to your statement of medals being handed out like candy. Certain medals are "handed out like candy", others are not. Medals and ribbons in our military tell the story or history per se of the person that wears them. Medals such as conflict ribbons and campaign medals are given to anyone who was in support of that operation or conflict. Other medals are achieved through action, service, or gallantry. Those are few and far between as you go up in rank of medal. At the very least, there is no reason to deny Reagan WWII service. Under Army Regs, both Reagan and Bush would have served during those wars as long as they completed more than 30 day active service. If Reagan served in Europe or Asia should not be the question here. He served in the Army in support of the war effort. Effectivly he is a veteran of WWII and served during WWII. The reason he was not in combat was due to health issues. This would be the same for coastal artillery, for example. They guarded our coastal areas during WWII but did not serve overseas. They are WWII veterans none the less. They provided for the total war effort. Bush, by serving active duty time, would have been in service during the Vietnam War.

To say that any soldier serving during time of conflict did not serve during that conflict is a slap in the face. Every soldier on active duty at this moment, wether in theatre or not, is training or working in support of the current conflict. For example, I was in Europe on a peacekeeping operation in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, i.e. The Global War on Terror. I served proudly during war time and it should be noted. Just because orders have yet to send me to combat should not lessen my, not any other soldier's efforts. A change in orders could have sent me to Iraq or Afghanistan. However, that does not take away my war time service. If you want to get nitpicky about this, then we need to denote service in theatre. For example. If a soldier served in support of the Global War on Terror, his or her bio would state that service. If a soldier served in support of the GWT with service in Operation Iraqi Freedom, then the GWT service and OIF service would be denoted. What that would tell me as the reader is that that soldier served during war, denoted by the GWT, and served in a combat theatre, denoted by the OIF. If you want to go that far, then should Carter be denoted for service in Korea even though from what I understand never sat foot in the war zone?

You statement about what denotes war leaves me to question your realiability in making decisions on this matter. Yes, there are many other operations at this time and other times. There are Operations Other Than War, i.e. Somalia, Panama, and Grenada. And peacekeeping, i.e. Bosnia, Kosovo, and the Korean DMZ. However, if you agree with it or not, we are at war. It is called the Global War on Terrorism. OIF and Afghanistan are two pieces of that war. Anyone who serves during that time is justly credited with service during a time of war.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Love Don't Cost a Thing.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Love Don't Cost a Thing.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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

The Evergreen State College[edit]

I removed the following text that you included on this article's page:

Evergreen Terrace, the fictional street where the title family in Groening's animated program The Simpsons live, is believed to be named after the College.

Believed by whom? I had removed that information from the article before (diff). Do you have a source? I've read articles that note it's named after a street Groening lived on in Portland among other claims. If it's really unclear and unverifiable, it shouldn't be in an encyclopedia article. Thanks! --Rkitko 04:55, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Cobie_Smulders.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cobie_Smulders.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-no-disclaimers}} 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 18:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fritz S. (Talk) 18:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Kourtney Kardashian[edit]

Kourtney Kardashian[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Kourtney Kardashian, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (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. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Multinational force in Iraq[edit]

Hi. I noticed you were doing some work on the multinational force in Iraq article. I am interested in that one too, and think it would be improved by adding some information about what the U.S. offered various countries in return for their involvement. I don't know a lot about the subject, but with a little research I bet some useful cites could be found. Any interest in helping me out? Thanks in advance. --Mackabean 21:37, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:The Starlet judges.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.

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.

Image:Aubrey Dollar.jpg[edit]

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

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{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.

Replaceable fair use Image:Fabian Basabe.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

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

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

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

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 22:41, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Brittny Gastineau. lucirejpg.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Brittny Gastineau. lucirejpg.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 14:53, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Bodybuilding competitions featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Bodybuilding competitions featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Ricky81682 (talk) 05:35, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Pauline Musters[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Pauline Musters requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Tosqueira (talk) 23:16, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
