2007-08 Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team[edit]

Hey! Just wanted to let you know that I took the content you added for Duke Blue Devils men's basketball under the current season and created a new article with it: 2007-08 Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team. This follows typical wikipedia guidelines and will prevent the generic basketball article from getting too long. Thanks for your contributions to that page and help me expand the new one! Cheers, Bluedog423Talk 03:12, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

BMW Car Club of America[edit]

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article BMW Car Club of America, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 17:59, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Great job referencing the article. I thought about contesting the prod, but there were no references. Royalbroil 02:28, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Dates on Wiki:Project Aviation Articles[edit]

Mustang, you may have noticed that your submissions have been reverted and revised many times in the aviation articles in which you have made contributions. Most of the edit revisions have revolved around your use of dates. The conventional dating systems are [day-month-year] or [month-day-year] (known as the popular style) while ISO dating is also used (year-month-date) written in numerical form. Wikiproject:Aviation group has a style guide that is followed for the project and after a great deal of discussion, a consensus was reached that would provide the easiest format for all users. Since foreign readers were unsure of the actual date when an ISO standard was provided, e.g. does 2007-4-11 mean April 11, 2007 or November 4, 2007? and since the formal style, [day-month-year] was unambigious and accepted worldwide, a decision was made to adopt this style and further use the wikilink system to identify the date convention for those users in Wikipedia who have date preferences set for their browsers. The final form was 17 March 2008 which then allowed the browser settings to show the dates in whatever form the user wanted. Please contact me for more information if needed. A good guide to the use of dates is in reviewing an article such as F-117 Nighthawk in edit mode and seeing how dates are expressed, then it's simply a matter of first looking at an article that is developed by editors in the WikiProject:Aviation group and using that format. FWIW, again a welcome! Bzuk (talk) 12:02, 17 March 2008 (UTC).

Mustang, thanks for your note, and I knew that you had a longer history in Wikiwacky land, but I thought it might be presumptuous to just jump into a commentary. I did check to see if anyone had formally welcomed you and when I didn't see one, I thought why not... FWIW Bzuk (talk) 15:09, 17 March 2008 (UTC).

In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --14:43, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for File:JHFC logo outlines.png}[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:JHFC logo outlines.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator 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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Hail to the Buff and Blue[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Hail to the Buff and Blue 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:Aviation Week 03-06-2006 cover.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Aviation Week 03-06-2006 cover.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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:58, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Grassroots Motorsports nov 2007.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Grassroots Motorsports nov 2007.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).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.
