Happy New Year![edit]

Dear Mike Halterman,

Wishing you a happy new year, and very best wishes for 2009. Whether we were friends or not in the past year, I hope 2009 will be better for us both.

Kind regards,

Majorly talk 21:34, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Elpida[edit]

Hello Mike and happy NewYear! It's true there's no free photos of Elpida on flickr, or the greek web, from a quick look. Most of our greek singer photos are from live performances. Unfortunately Elpida is way past her prime and I don't know if she still sings live. Neither does she have a website (at least from a small google search I did). So, for a free photo we'll either have to catch her live (I'll keep my eyes peeled for any live performances) or discover someone who owns photos of her and ask for a gfdl or cc release (or her own website, if it turns out that she has one). I'm sorry that I can't be of more help at the moment, but I'll be on the lookout for this. Cheers! - Badseed (talk) 09:25, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Helga Vlahović[edit]

I assume you mean translating the article to Croatian (it doesn't exist on Croatian Wikipedia). I'll do it the first thing tomorrow. Admiral Norton (talk) 13:09, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

No problem, if you need anything else, just ask! Admiral Norton (talk) 22:01, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Done. Admiral Norton (talk) 12:01, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hello Mike, and thank you for contacting me. Frankly, I also feel that I was somehow vindicated (even if not thanks to myself). I am not seeking for apologies, although I deeply appreciated the ones that actually came by. But most importantly, Wikipedia dodged a bullet, and we all obtained some food for thought. Best regards, Húsönd 19:00, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Hej igen[edit]

Hey Mike. Jeg er bange for, at jeg ikke rigtigt har den store interesse i Wikipedia-relaterede arrangementer længere. Ellers tak. Er du sikker på, du ikke har mere end bare 'grundlæggende' kendskaber til dansk? :o —Preceding unsigned comment added by Emil Kastberg (talkcontribs) 23:02, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Wikimedia Danmark[edit]

Hi, Mike. I apologize for the delay in responding to you. I didn't mean to leave you hanging. I went ahead and added my name to the list on the Wikimedia Danmark forslag page. However, I must confess my complete current ignorance about the parameters, functions, duties and benefits that a chapter like this would entail or provide. But I certainly am interested in seeing the proper expansion of any good cause of the Wkipedia within Denmark. So, for the moment, while I figure out what a Wikimedia Danmark chapter actually means, I will participate as I can. — CactusWriter | needles 20:36, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Coeur d'Alene Resort[edit]

Holy cow... I looked at the article and its certainly been puffed up. It was a harmless stub when I first added the photo (I hadn't looked at it since). I'll see what I can do. --Bobak (talk) 15:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Mike, I already have a commitment on March 14 at 17:00. But I'll plan on coming to the Wikimedia Danmark generalforsamling -- with the understanding I'll need to break away around 16:00 or so. Should be interesting to meet and hear from the other involved people. Vi ses. CactusWriter | needles 09:54, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Love the interview and very interesting her views on the current state of the contest. Was this interview conducted in French or English? --Tuzapicabit (talk) 14:09, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Edsilia[edit]

Just got round to reading the Edsilia interview. Nice job again. Interesting that you picked up on her similarity to Ruth Jacott (they are my 2 favourite Dutch entrants ever) - shame she didn't comment on Ruth herself. Love Hemel en Aarde as a song though - and its Englsh version, "Walk on Water". Well done. --Tuzapicabit (talk) 14:13, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

When I was finished with the ones I do with AWB and was about to send the rest by hand I saw April 29 and was like shoot, tomorrow is still April. I was so set on getting them all delivered by 8pm tonight which is midnight UTC before May and it wasn't even May tomorrow. I'm annoyed cause I threw it together and it could have been so much better lol.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Aybsagaindvd.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Aybsagaindvd.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 19:47, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:1970winstonad.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:1970winstonad.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. 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.

Hi there, long time no speak! It seems that the woman herself has altered huge swathes of her biography. The information seems very specific and I'm guessing it is actually her.

Proposed deletion of Marla Adams[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Marla Adams has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unreferenced BLP

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. —Mikemoral♪♫ 03:26, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Yankee Candle[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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 Yankee Candle requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. TiMike (talk) 02:22, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Utminaret.JPG[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Utminaret.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.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Mike Halterman,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.11.206.39 (talk) 03:21, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Cameronmathison.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Cameronmathison.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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:18, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Nina Arvesen[edit]

This stub you created seems to be lacking sources. Could you add sources if possible? Thanks.

Page has had severe vandalism so it is difficult for me to distinguish good and bad content.

Disambiguation link notification for October 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Comturist, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Communist Hungary (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:39, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Because you are an editor who has participated in previous discussions on the same topic (or a closely related one), I call your attention to discussion at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Rhode Island Red.2. Sincerely, GeorgeLouis (talk) 16:40, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Darcel Leonard Wynne[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Darcel Leonard Wynne has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No reliable sources for the BLP.

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.

Changes to infobox[edit]

Hello, I am a relatively new user and I was just wondering whether we could change the soap character info boxes so it includes all relatives (with relatives detailed as to their relation) and also includes their domestic partners. I hope we gain consensus across the Soap project to have something very similar. Under current rules, people argue about what relation one character has to another and it leads to inconsistency across articles. That is why the encyclopedia needs to have the real open list of relatives and I think that change would be the right way forward.--86.183.195.212 (talk) 18:57, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

I'd be for that. Mike H. Fierce! 20:59, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Fair use issues with Kelly Monaco image[edit]

Hi. There is a fair use argument being brought to bear against an image of Kelly Monaco. I'm contacting you because you were actively involved in debating Monaco's image use back in 2005. The image has been in use on Sam_McCall since I believe 2005. The image was flagged when I attempted to link the same picture to the article Kelly_Monaco last night, which had no picture at that time, but has had a number of different pictures including the Sam McCall image since before 2005. See here for more info:
Talk:Kelly_Monaco#Infobox
Talk:Sam_McCall#Infobox_Image and
Talk:Kelly_Monaco#Use_of_Kelly_Monaco_Image_from_Sam_McCall

I have had no involvement with the page or with the images since last night, so I would appreciate any input you might have on the issue. Thanks Jay Dubya (talk) 17:57, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Great American Wiknic 2014 - Northwest Arkansas[edit]

I'd like to invite you to add a Northwest Arlansas event for the Great American Wiknic. This year we're aiming to coalesce nationally around July 6, but any date that is convenient to your local community works as well. And don't be shy about putting something preliminary on the national Wiknic page, it all helps!--Pharos (talk) 17:07, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
