Thanks and Happy New Year[edit]

Firstly, let me wish you a very happy New Year and thank you for your help in the Milhist Tag & Assess 2007 drive.

Secondly, although the Tag & Assess 2007 drive is now officially closed, you are very welcome to continue tagging and assessing until 31 January 2008. Any articles you tag and assess during this time will be credited fully to your tagging tally for further award purposes.

Thirdly, if you can find the time, it would be great to have your feedback/comments and participation in the recently-set-up Tag & Assess workshop The idea is to see what lessons we can learn from the 2007 drive to make the 2008 one more efficient and enjoyable.

Thanks again for your help, --ROGER DAVIES talk 10:43, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Holy Trinity Church Cuckfield[edit]

I've tagged the above for a speedy delete as its a direct copy of the church's own website history page. Paste (talk) 18:13, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

1996 in Australian television[edit]

Hi, I've removed the speedy deletion tag from 1996 in Australian television as I don't consider it to be a speedy deletion candidate – the article does contain some meaningful content, and although it lacks an introductory paragraph, the context can be inferred from the navbox and title. --Canley (talk) 02:15, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

No problem at all, put them up for AfD if you feel the articles are not suitable. --Canley (talk) 00:17, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Years in Australian Television[edit]

Hi. Thanks for keeping an eye out on article quality and helping to keep the place picked up. :) I've deleted a number of the articles on years in Australian t.v. as lacking content when they contained only the template. When they contain more than the template, they do not really fit into any of the speedy criteria. "No context" is for articles that leave you scratching your head, unable to make out what they're talking about. "No content" is for articles consisting only of external links, category tags and "see also" sections, a rephrasing of the title, attempts to correspond with the person or group named by its title, chat-like comments, and/or images. Lists do not violate Wikipedia's policies, per se. See Wikipedia:Lists (stand-alone lists) for more on how & when they are appropriate. If you think that these articles are inappropriate per that guideline, then you have the option to nominate them for deletion by one of the other processes, WP:PROD or WP:AfD. I've added a couple of tags to the specific article you noted, since it lacks sourcing and categories. As to the notability, lists can be contentious and confusing. I find AfD discussion about them somewhat unpredictable and can call to mind quickly the example of List of Indian women, which was deleted, and List of Iranian women, which was not, even though the articles were nearly identical in construction and were nominated within days of each other. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 19:06, 11 January 2008 (UTC)



Jamie King (musician)[edit]

Sorry about the brief page, man. I have since updated it and hope to continue to add to it in the future. I can understand why it was tagged, but I have removed the bio tag. Ryannus (talk) 16:26, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Teacher and the Rockbots[edit]

Please note that this and The Blankies were both created by an SPA/role account which has the name of the company/label which issues these records. --Orange Mike | Talk 16:58, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

No, no, you're not the COI editor! These articles were created by Powerarts, which by no coincidence whatsoever is the name of the company involved. --Orange Mike | Talk 17:01, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Newsweek Wrong?[edit]

I think you should cite it with an external link. Signed, Nothing444 22:00, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

According to Yahoo! itself, Newsweek was right: See here. But in any case the threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is not truth but verifiability. —teb728 t c 22:46, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello Again[edit]

Can you please review this RFC and make comment. There is a campaign to harass me from editing, and I believe my edits are being mis-represented. If you have a moment, can you please have a look.

Wikimedia Commons[edit]

To Commons.svg

Thank you for uploading images/media to Wikipedia! As you may know, there is another Wikimedia Foundation project called Wikimedia Commons, a central media repository for all free media. In future, please upload media there instead (see m:Help:Unified login). That way, all of the other language Wikipedias can use them too, as well as our many sister projects. This will also allow our visitors to search for, view and use our media in one central location. If you wish to move previous uploads to Commons, see Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons (you may view images you have previously uploaded by going to your user contributions on the left and choosing the 'image' namespace from the drop down box). Please note that non-free content, such as images claimed as fair use, cannot be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons. Help us spread the word about Commons by informing other users, and please continue uploading!--OsamaK 15:30, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: Question on Referencing from the help desk[edit]

Essentially, Associated Content was blacklisted because it offers financial incentive to its authors for increasing page-views (which would be spam) and it's content was unreliable to begin with. See: this link for more detail. —[DeadEyeArrowTalkContribs] 21:05, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood[edit]

I think that Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood is notable. I have seen a good deal of references for it. However, it definitely needs improvement to make it more neutral. I don't think that it should be deleted, but it does need some work. I hope that my opinion helped. :) Captain panda 20:35, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Barrio fino en directo.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Barrio fino en directo.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) 05:12, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

What breed is Bolt?[edit]

Hey there. I had to look up exactly what an Indian Spitz is, and while I admit that the Bolt character certainly could be one (both in look and in demeanor), there's still a citation problem. If you can provide verifiable proof that the artists who produced Bolt based him on an Indian Spitz, then it no longer is trivia; instead, it would belong in the article's "character design" section. The "holy grail" piece of proof would be an interview with the artists saying that they chose the Indian Spitz as the basis for Bolt because of its bonding with humans, which, as you probably know, is a key component to Bolt's story. This could be in a newspaper article, or even in the audio commentary on the DVD/BD. I'll listen to the commentary on my BD copy, and if I find it, I'll add it and find a way to cite it.

I'm not disagreeing with you; in fact, you've got me curious to see if that's what Disney actually did. That said, let's not add that back until we can find something that says that's what Bolt is. If you have any problems, ask on my talk page and I'll help however I can. Thanks!

McDoobAU93 (talk) 22:57, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

I was looking at some of the other cited sources in the Bolt article, and ran across one that says that Bolt is an American White Shepherd. While there could be something to that, at the same time I'm still wondering if Bolt really is an Indian Spitz ... what makes me think about that is Bolt's size. A full-grown shepherd is a pretty large dog, and even a 5-year-old Bolt (as suggested in the opening sequences) is relatively small. The White Shepherd article was edited to mention that Bolt is one, but it too is uncited. Again, I'm for leaving things as they are until we get a better source (again, preferably from the artists themselves). Thanks for your help! --McDoobAU93 (talk) 16:33, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
The Indian Spitz is not an AKC-recognized breed, so they wouldn't have any information on them to provide to Disney. For what it's worth, the American White Shepherd isn't listed with AKC, either. Most likely, Bolt is just a nondescript white dog, not meant to be any particular breed. Although, I do admit his design and character traits do match up well to the Indian Spitz ... I may try another couple of approaches to see what I can find out. --McDoobAU93 (talk) 21:16, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


File source problem with File:ATB-Two Worlds.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:ATB-Two Worlds.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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 04:54, 9 December 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 04:54, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Carlos & Alejandra[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Carlos & Alejandra 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 band or musician, 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 musical topics. You may also 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 {{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. ttonyb (talk) 06:08, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
