License tagging for File:Israeli Ballot Divider.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Israeli Ballot Divider.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 15:05, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Yehud Medinata (The Province of Judah)[edit]

Thanks for the notification...and congratulations on producing such a well-written and informative article. Jack1956 (talk) 06:51, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I wish to extend the compliments! This is an invaluable article about an important (and sometimes forgotten) chapter of Jewish history. Well done, and you definitely deserve a Barnstar!

Page titles[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies a different title by copying its content and pasting it into The Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other articles that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Speedy deletion nomination of Tapuz[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Tapuz requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Speedy deletion nomination of Direct talks with Iran[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Direct talks with Iran requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Fair use rationale for File:London-at-kir.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:London-at-kir.jpg. 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.

The article Jacob Turkel has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag.

File copyright problem with File:Beit Aghion.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Beit Aghion.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Image Screening Bot (talk) 17:34, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,470 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Ayala Hasson-Nesher, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.koteret.co.il/list_graduates_E.asp?PageCurr=5.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Orphaned non-free image File:London-at-kir.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:London-at-kir.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 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.

Jewish Encyclopedia titled him "b.",and keep in mind, although irrelevant to Simeon ben Menasya, that for many sages the "b." stands sometimes for "Ben" or "Bar" or both (and both stand for "Son of"), and at times in Hebrew it is "Bar" and in English it is "Ben" - so this is kind of "case sensitive" --Midrashah (talk) 16:55, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Eleazar ben Judah of Bartota[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Eleazar ben Judah of Bartota requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay.

Speedy deletion nomination of Raba Bar Jeremiah[edit]

A tag has been placed on Raba Bar Jeremiah, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Moreover, please add more verifiable sources, not only 3rd party sources. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate).

Brief question about image licensing[edit]

Hi-

I was just going through some images (maintenance stuff), and I noticed File:Beit Aghion.jpg. Two questions: First, was this edit done by you? (I have to ask, because if the IP editor just added the license tag without your permission, that would be problematic). Second, did you intend to license the image under both the GFDL and cc-by-2.5 (the license tag used doesn't display anything about the CC licensing, but I can fix that if desired). Thanks! –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 15:22, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi, it was quite a while a go, so I will try to remember as much as I can. As for the first question I probably added the license after forgetting to re-enter. As for the second question, at the time of the uploading of the image, I probably looked up as to what is needed to license this specific image, I just can't remember now what it was and what I intended. Please go ahead and make the necessary modifications.

--Midrashah (talk) 19:30, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'm going to guess that the IP editor was you. To be on the safe side, I'll just make it be GFDL with license migration. Thanks for your help! –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 00:14, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
Eh, actually, it looks more complicated than I'd expected because the source is in Hebrew. Well, I'll just let some other editor to get to it at some point. :) Thanks anyway! –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 00:16, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Netanyau bakum.JPG[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 15:15, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Menachem ben Peretz of Hebron, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Samuel Klein (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.

Registretion for Egyptian presidential election, 2012 has ended only registered candidates are relevent[edit]

Thanks Midrashah for pointing it out. I took a quick look, and compared to the official election website. There are multiple missing candidates indeed. I will complete the list and check the "Unregistered or disqualified". I may be slow doing it, but will complete it by the end of this week. Hous21 (talk) 21:55, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

I filled in the second poll too. thanks for keeping an eye on the news and incorporating it. You may want to use the "templates" for adding citations. this allows u to fill in the title, author and date, making the citations prettier and more informative. Keep the good work. --Hous21 (talk) 22:18, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:ScreenSHot Gadahfi airplae sculpture.JPG[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:ScreenSHot Gadahfi airplae sculpture.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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 04:54, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Halfstar Hires.png The Half Barnstar
Midrashah and I closely cooperated for editing Egyptian presidential election, 2012.

Midrashah was very diligent in finding news and polls in English, and would ping me whenever he wanted to check missing numbers or double-check from the Arabic source. I would then search for and confirm from the Arabic source.

For this fruitful cooperation, I award you this Barnstar. Hous21 (talk) 01:52, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much! you deserve one too - for your excellent work! --Midrashah (talk) 21:32, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Edits over at Syrian uprising (2011–present)[edit]

Hey Midrashah, I saw your edits over at Syrian uprising (2011–present). It seems like you removed reference names, which caused all the references to turn into bare URLs. I reverted your edits back to the original version. I hope you don't mind. Thanks for contributing. -- Luke (Talk) 20:56, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I tried to actually add a source, and somehow it all messed up, I don't know how... thaks for moving it back to the original one, I was unable to fix the mess... --Midrashah (talk) 15:17, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jihad Makdissi[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jihad Makdissi has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Replaceable fair use File:News10.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:News10.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. VernoWhitney (talk) 14:44, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Workshop on Wikipedia and the Middle East[edit]

Hi Midrashah, I noticed that you edit a lot of articles about the Middle East and I'm organising a workshop for a group of researchers from the University of Oxford and the American University of Sharjah, about representation of the Middle East and North Africa region on Wikipedia. We held a workshop in Cairo for Wikipedians in October 2012 to discuss barriers to participation on Arabic Wikipedia. Our next workshop will be taking place in Amman, Jordan on the 26th-27th January 2013. We have funds to pay for participants' travel, accommodation and food. This workshop will concentrate more specifically on the representation of parts of the MENA region on Wikipedia and the ability of local editors to contribute to those representations. We are therefore looking for participants who edit articles about the MENA region (can be places, local historical or current events, local people etc.) We wanted to invite you because we noticed you have been involved in editing about contentious topics in the region and would really value your input. If you want to know more about this workshop, please contact me on wikiproject@oii.ox.ac.uk. Many thanks, Clarence (Project Manager)OIIOxford (talk) 15:04, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I will not be able to participate, but thak you any way. --Midrashah (talk) 21:58, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rasha al-Akhras[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Rasha al-Akhras has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:BLP1E, nothing notable about her except for the letter. The information could be added to the Asmaa article.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Muscular Judaism[edit]

Hi Midrashah, and thanks for creating Muscular Judaism. I had had it on a list of articles I meant to create, so I was happy to see someone else was interested in this fascinating topic. I just took a look at the corresponding article in Hebrew Wikipedia, and it looks pretty similar in some areas. Did you translate anything from there for the English version? It's fine if you did, but we should put {{translated page}} on it if so for attribution purposes. I'd be happy to take care of it if so. Thanks, BDD (talk) 03:39, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

As much as I remember yes. But you since have edited it and it looks different so I can't say for sure, and also since you edited it it is lready not a translated article any more. --Midrashah (talk) 17:47, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Nana10-New.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image 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 image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL 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) 21:13, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:749px-BESA-logo-english.svg.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:749px-BESA-logo-english.svg.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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:00, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

This applies to infoboxes, too.

Speedy deletion nomination of Shut up your mouse, Obama[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Shut up your mouse, Obama requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
