Template:Ace Attorney[edit]

Okay, so let's see - your argument is "Okay, only two templates on Wikipedia add unnecessary information that's the most base form of trivia, so I can too!". Are you going to explain why the the release date is the one, only piece of information that can be listed? If you plan to include release dates, I plan to include platforms.

And do you ever plan to explain why we need a second column for a single game? Because you absolutely have not done this at any point. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 20:10, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (File:Ace Attorney Investigations- Miles Edgeworth logo.png)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Ace Attorney Investigations- Miles Edgeworth logo.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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. FileBot (talk) 09:13, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Addition of prose tag[edit]

The Features removed from Windows Vista and Features removed in Windows 7 artiles are exactly the kind of articles for which there should be no prose tag as the individual features are completely unrelated and mentioning them together in a para in prose form would make no sense. Prose form is useful for articles that have content which can be aggregated together. The current bulleted list style is perfect for such articles where each point is unrelated to the other.

Wikipedia guidelines clearly state "Use this (prose) tag where a list needs cleanup. Whereas these lists do not require cleanup as each point is well-cited with references. - xpclient Talk 06:59, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Firefox 3.7 won't support PDF natively as far as I can tell[edit]

[1] I can't find any source saying that Fx 3.7 will include native PDF support, and the corresponding bug on Bugzilla doesn't seem to have any activity. So I removed the mention of PDF support. If you have another opinion you're welcome to discuss it. I won't be watching your talk page, so if you want to say something to me, post on my talk page. Skalman (talk) 12:26, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I will watch your talk page. :-) ([2])
Are you really sure? So Firebug will become part of Firefox? Furthermore I can't find any mentions or blog posts about it at all. Can you? Skalman (talk) 01:07, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
I see. We'll remove it for now and see if it's announced in the future.

May 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles, or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion debates, as you did with Sonic Colors. Otherwise, it may be difficult to create consensus. If you oppose the deletion of an article, please comment at the respective page instead. Thank you. Codf1977 (talk) 18:56, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

WP:AGF and WP:NPA[edit]

Please can you have a read of the following WP policies :

It is clear that with this edit you did not undertand them.

If you look at what the article was like when I nominated it (see this version) you will see that it had next to no content, that coupled with some Google searches produced only speculation of the game.

I should warn you, that if you continue in manor displayed with with that edit you are likely to sooner or later come to the attention of an administrator and could end up finding your self with an editing block.


Codf1977 (talk) 07:10, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Apology accepted. Codf1977 (talk) 09:48, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:W3C logo.svg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:W3C logo.svg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

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 '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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Acather96 (talk) 09:50, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Incidents at Disneyland Paris[edit]

Greetings. Your recent edit to Incidents at Disneyland Paris has been undone. While I believe you were working to improve the article, you provided no source for the edit. Before adding it back, please be sure to include a valid, independent source for the incident. Thanks, and happy editing! --McDoobAU93 17:31, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for providing a source for the incident you added. However, when doing so, please do not just add a source and undo the revision. When you did so, your source indicated that your edit had two factual errors. According to the source, two cars on the train derailed, not just "the last car", and there were two minor injuries, not none. Both items have been fixed, per the source. --McDoobAU93 18:22, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
(Responding to your note on my talk page) You're most welcome. Web forums aren't usually the best sources for information, although you did take initiative to find something to verify it. That's called "doing your homework," and you're to be commended for that. Have a great weekend! --McDoobAU93 18:30, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the barnstar![edit]

Regarding the spelling mistake, a glance at my edit history would show that you are far from being the only Wikipedian to make it.  :-P --Joel7687 (talk) 16:39, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Windows Live, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page RTM (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.

Non-free rationale for File:Microsoft Surface with Touch Cover.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Microsoft Surface with Touch Cover.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. Thank you. Bulwersator (talk) 11:39, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Microsoft Surface with Touch Cover.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Microsoft Surface with Touch Cover.png. 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. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 20:36, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
