Current Discussion

mwpush.pl and session[edit]

The Perl HTTP module should be handling the cookies internally. I haven't run mwpush.pl under Windows before, but my spider sense suggests that there may be something suspect with ActiveState's Perl/HTTP implementation. If I have cycles I can maybe take a poke sometime. - Keith D. Tyler (AMA) 18:04, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Link to response from CBDunkerson[edit]

Actually, see the deletion log. I deleted it because it was a redirect to IEEE 801.15.4... which doesn't exist / isn't correct. Creating a new redirect to the actual page would be fine. --CBD 09:05, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Image:Satisfactionsample.ogg[edit]

Thanks for the heads up. FYI, American law does not specify a maximum length for an audio sample to qualify as fair use; the 30 second limit appears to be self-imposed by WP. I'll see if I can upload a shorter version. Johnleemk | Talk 11:00, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Cuddly Panda Films[edit]

As a matter of fact I do have a question. How come even as a part of my user page it still can't be allowed, or even be left undeleted? --Cuddly Panda 07:49, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

The purpose of user pages is to give Wikipedia editors a way to describe who they are and provide them with a way to communicate with one another. Their main use must be related to Wikimedia projects, and you can read more about them at Wikipedia:User page. Now, in most cases, there's no problem with having a few other personal things on your user page, such as userboxes or some lists, as you do. However, it's important to remember that Wikipedia is not a free web host. These policies are in place to keep Wikipedia and its editors focused on creating a free content encyclopedia. User:Cuddly Panda/Cuddly Panda Films and User:Cuddly Panda/Dinosauria have no relation to the project, and you could easily post these pages on your own website. If you'd like, I can send you a copy of the pages so that you may post them elsewhere on the internet. ~MDD4696 17:19, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
You can do that? I'd love it. Thanks anywho. --Cuddly Panda 07:51, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi I am justice[edit]

I need your help! The following image is listed for deletion. Image:PRINCESS_YASMIN_AGA_KHAN.jpg I don't understand why. I did that picture myself and I stated it when loading the pic. I don't have knowledge about how to do everything in WP, and probably I did something wrong. Can you please help me to reinstate it to its original article? Rodolfo Valentin. Also I don't know what to do to reinstate that picture and remove it from deletion! Thank you very much! justice all the way 14:53, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi. The person who nominated your photo for deletion explained his reasoning on your talk page. You can read about Wikipedia's deletion policy at Wikipedia:Deletion policy. The dicussion regarding the image's deletion is at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion#Image:PRINCESS YASMIN AGA KHAN.jpg, but please only comment there if you have information regarding the image that would justify its inclusion on Wikipedia. Don't worry too much about the image getting deleted--it will probably get moved to Wikimedia Commons, and you'll still be able to use it on Wikipedia. Also, if you want to add the image to the Rodolfo Valentin, just add something like [[Image:PRINCESS YASMIN AGA KHAN.jpg|thumb|Caption goes here.]] to the page. ~MDD4696 13:56, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Template:PD-UA-exempt[edit]

Hi there, I noticed you edited the Template:PD-UA-exempt awhile back. You are welcome to contribute on a related Rfc page here, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/FC Vorskla Poltava image. Much appreciated, --Palffy 21:18, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:Toposa in action.jpg[edit]

Hi. When you uploaded Image:Toposa in action.jpg, you did not specify complete source and copyright information. Another user subsequently tagged it with {{GFDL-presumed}} and, for some time, it has existed on Wikipedia under the assumption that you created the image and you agreed to license it under the GFDL. This assumption, however well-meaning, is not legally sufficient and the tag is being phased out. Images using it are being deleted.

This image has been tagged for deletion and will be deleted in one week if adequate copyright information is not provided.

If you, personally, are the author of this content, meaning that you took the photograph yourself or you created the chart yourself (and it does not use any clipart that you did not create), please retag the image with a free image copyright tag that correctly describes your licensing intentions, usually {{GFDL-self}} or {{PD-self}}. Please also make sure if you have not already done so that you write a good description of what the image depicts, when you took the photo, and other important details. This will allow Wikipedia to continue using the image.

If you did not create the image or if it is derived from the copyrighted works of others, please keep in mind that most images on the internet are copyrighted and are not suitable for use on Wikipedia. Wikipedia respects the copyrights of others and does not use images unless we know that they have been freely licensed. Any creative work is automatically copyrighted, even if it lacks a copyright notice. Unless the copyright holder has specifically disclaimed their rights to the image and released it under the GFDL or another compatible license, we cannot use it. If you did not create the image, and cannot make the image compliant with Wikipedia:Non-free content, simply do nothing and it will be deleted in a week. All other non-free images must follow these rules.

Please feel free to contact me on my talk page or leave a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions with any questions you may have. Thank you. Aksibot 07:44, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Mudvayne_-_Kill,_I_Oughtta.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Mudvayne_-_Kill,_I_Oughtta.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.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages 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 non-free media lacking such an explanation 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. BigrTex 15:20, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

User:74.71.107.23[edit]

Would you consider unblocking the above IP? The person editing from that IP was the article subject - she got in touch with me and we got the issue with her article resolved to everyone's satisfaction. For the block to occur so long after the disruptive behavior had stopped makes it look more punitive than preventative. Thanks! Videmus Omnia Talk 17:00, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

request for comment on Hugh Hefner[edit]

Please take the time to go to Hugh Hefner's talkpage [1] and respond to the request for comment on what jerrygraf is trying to add that does not belong on Hugh Hefner's page, but belongs on PEI's, as well as the part I deleted is ment as a "controversial comment on the biography of a living person"Rogue Gremlin 04:24, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Skupnik.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Skupnik.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 18:13, 10 October 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Videmus Omnia Talk 18:13, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

DRV notice[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of GOOOH - Get Out of Our House. Since you closed the deletion discussion for this article or speedy-deleted it, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Jreferee t/c 19:54, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Mudvayne - Kill, I Oughtta.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Mudvayne - Kill, I Oughtta.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. BJBot (talk) 04:46, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Image:CIE 1931 triangle.png listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:CIE 1931 triangle.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Dicklyon (talk) 03:18, 26 January 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Yo-Yo Ma - Silk Road Journeys Beyond the Horizon.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Yo-Yo Ma - Silk Road Journeys Beyond the Horizon.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.BetacommandBot (talk) 03:24, 12 February 2008 (UTC)


Mini-DV removal of information[edit]

Do I understand correctly that you just recently changed the DV page? If so, in the process you removed some information I once added, specifically the exact size of each compressed NTSC frame, which I thought was relevant (at least I haven't seen this data mentioned anywhere else). I just wanted to ask you about that (rationale, etc.). Thanks, 75.182.81.29 (talk) 18:15, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

My edit summary was "→Physical format: rm redundant explanation of capacity... see above Video Compression section". I felt that the rough capacity derivation was redundant given the details in the video compression section. The paragraph still mentions that a MiniDV tape holds 13GB. Also there was a reference link without any relevant information that I removed. ~MDD4696 19:19, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
Being a "noob", what is edit summary, and where do I find it?Anatoly larkin (talk) 08:25, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
At the top of every page there is a "history" tab for each article. It takes you to a page which shows a list of every edit ever made to that page, with edit summaries. From there you can also see the exact changes that were made for each edit. Let me know if you have any more questions. ~MDD4696 15:43, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
So, "Edit Summary" is basically in the end of the "change" line: Date, Username, (Talk|Contribs) (size) <EDIT SUMMARY>?
Ok. Anyway, still, I feel that if somebody wanted to know exactly how many bytes each frame of DV compressed video takes up, my values were accurate and were providing such information. If you don't think it belongs on this page, where do you recommend putting it in wikipedia?
Thanks, Anatoly larkin (talk) 05:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
You got it with the edit summary. If you'd like to re-add the information I removed, maybe the video compression section is more appropriate? Just use your best judgment and I'd be happy :). ~MDD4696 04:42, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Ok, sure. I'll think about it. By the way, since you edited that page, are you into DV, or editing? I just dabble.Anatoly larkin (talk) 23:24, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

p.s (also, is there a setting in wikipedia where it will automatically put in my signature in each post, if I forget the 4 tildes, instead of saying something like "this unsigned comment was added by IP address"?)

If you forget the four tildes, just edit the comment again and add them. I do not know of anything you can use to ensure that you always sign your comments. It's just a habit to get into. ~MDD4696 02:59, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Image:Rammstein_-_Bestrafe_mich_(sample).ogg[edit]

I have tagged Image:Rammstein_-_Bestrafe_mich_(sample).ogg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Some examples can be found at Wikipedia:Use rationale examples.

Proposed deletion of Actimagine[edit]

Ambox warning orange.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Actimagine, 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? Oo7565 (talk) 08:28, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Hilf mir[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Hilf mir, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hilf mir. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

AfD nomination of Outline of computer engineering[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 Outline of computer engineering. 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 "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/Outline of computer engineering. 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) 01:09, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Call name[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Call name has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I don't see any reason why "Call name" should be redirected to "German name". Nothing in wikipedia links to "Call name" anyway, and there's nothing specific to German names about this phrase....

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Nyh (talk) 12:23, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Non-Free rationale for File:JavaPlatform.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:JavaPlatform.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under Non-Free content criteria but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a Non-Free rationale.

If you have uploaded other Non-Free media, consider checking that you have specified the Non-Free rationale on those pages too. 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

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.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:24, 23 September 2011 (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 if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
