feedback on Donation's pages[edit]

Hi Osy!

My name is Patricia and I work at the WMF on the Fundraising department. We are trying to gather as much information as we can per country so that we can provide a great user experience for our donors in 2012. It would be great if you could help us reviewing a few pieces of our donation forms for us :)

1. For example, the address fields for the credit card option. Does the format of the fields below match the way you normally write your address in Ghana?

Surname: Name:
Address/PO Box:
City:
Country:
Email:

2. Would you allow us to send you a little survey with more questions related to Ghana. These are cultural questions that anyone who lives or know Ghana culture can answer :)

Thanks for letting me know and thanks in advance for your help!! Cheers, Ppena (WMF) (talk) 02:28, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

OTRS[edit]

I see a tag on File:.Accra Aca Alumni registration (80th anniversary home-coming).jpg indicating that an email has been sent to OTRS, but I searched and could not find it. I don't know who sent it, so I can't search on sender, but I searched for "Accra Aca" and did not find it. If you can tell me more about the email, such as the subject line, I can search again.--SPhilbrick(Talk) 12:48, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Edward Doe Adjaho.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Edward Doe Adjaho.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) 19:30, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Ebenezer Ako-Adjei.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Ebenezer Ako-Adjei.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) 04:09, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of senior secondary schools in Ghana, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Public school (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.

Replaceable fair use File:Peter Ala Adjetey.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Peter Ala Adjetey.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

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.
