Happy New Year![edit]

Thanks Beagel, I've been trying to get back into regular editing over the last month. You are certainly an inspiration for that! Mikenorton (talk) 14:36, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Questions about deleted figures[edit]

Hello, Mikenorton. I noticed that you recently delete several figures from the page Tectonic of South China Sea which I created. However, I cited these figures from a published book and I redrew all of them after you left me a message last time, for Fig 6 and Fig 8 especially. Would you please tell me why these reworked figures still have problems? Thank you! Chang21liu (talk) 14:01, 5 January 2015 (UTC)Chang21liu

Hi Chang21liu, note that I removed the figures rather than deleting them, they can be restored assuming that there is evidence that you have permission to use them. It's generally not enough to just add a bit of colour to an original, although it's often a fine dividing line to ensure that a reworked figure is sufficiently different to be outside copyright restrictions. Any image at Commons that gives someone else as the author without evidence of their permission is liable to be deleted. If you feel that your figures are sufficiently different, then you should change the author to your own name, stating that they are modified after the original author's work. I hope that this helps - we just really need to be careful about copyright. I don't have access to all the original papers, so it's difficult for me to check on how different they are, I'm mainly going on the image descriptions at commons.

Your Figure 7 is still too similar to Cullen et al's Figure 4 to my mind. The Moho depth Map is a direct copy, with a little additional annotation - that's definitely not OK. For Figure 6 and the Subsidence figure, I don't have originals for comparison - again I was just going on the commons description. There is no Figure 8 in the version that I worked on this morning - what is the actual filename? Mikenorton (talk) 14:31, 5 January 2015 (UTC)


Halo Mikenorton. With regard to the discussion about my section, I would reinvite you to have a look on the authors and reviewers, imho no "piece of sociology" but dealing en detail with Volcanology and Volcanologists. I reduced lingo. I have have added some links and papers I would like to use for the draft. Point is, I am not bound to force all of that directly in Volcanology, but assume something like "Volcanic hazards as a global problem" could be an alternative. Suggestions invited.

Disambiguation link notification for January 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Burrington Combe, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Conglomerate. 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.
