Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Wikipedia Boot Camp, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I noticed you are known only as an IP address; that means you are not signed up. To sign up, you only need to click Create account and choose a username and password. You don't need to provide any personal information. If you sign up, you'll have a username that others can use to recognize you and leave you messages on the wiki. You'll be able to sign your name just by typing four tildes (~~~~) when you leave someone else a message. Plus, you (and others) will easily be able to see a list of all your contributions to Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, ask at the Village pump, or feel free to ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!

Like for like[edit]

Sorry, but I have reverted most of the links you have introduced for the like for like article. The article states that it is about a business growth measure. The places you introduced the link were mostly not using it in that sense. Just because a phrase corresponds to the title of an article does not mean it would be an appropriate link, this is a common English phrase that is used in many different situations. Also, even where the link has the right meaning, you should consider whether the link would actually be useful in the article or if it is a case of overlinking. Anyway, please don't be discouraged, getting orphaned articles linked into the rest of the encyclopedia is a useful, but often neglected task. Those articles are never likely to be improved if they are not visible.

By the way, the att parameter in the orphan template does not replace the date parameter, it is used in addition to the date parameter. In any case, when you have succesfully de-orphaned an article the correct thing to do is remove the template altogether. SpinningSpark 14:11, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your answer. I am not discouraged. Palapa (talk) 16:46, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Honorifics[edit]

Rather than fixing the formating to honorifics inserted into articles by Muslims, according to Wikipedia rules, we are to remove them. Qwertyberty123456789 (talk) 09:51, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Bolkan-Indagine.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Bolkan-Indagine.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free 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 tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 05:46, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

User page[edit]

I hope you won't mind, but I attempted a fix (diff) to the template code that had been copied onto to your userpage. All the relevant information is still there, and only the inapplicable portion about the template itself is gone. Best, -- Black Falcon (talk) 06:07, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

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

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bolkan-Indagine.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. Skier Dude (talk) 06:11, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Verein Deutscher Ingenieure logo.svg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Verein Deutscher Ingenieure logo.svg. 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 '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) 04:28, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
