Copyright page[edit]

Hi welcome to wiki, Just reversed you addition to the Novels templateTemp page as Copyright_date is not a field in the "infobox book". That is not to say that it should not be but you would need to propose this on the Template talk:Infobox Book page. I was using the "Release date" field, which in my view should really be "Publication date" to fulfill this purpose. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 10:05, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels[edit]

Hi seeing your interest in books and novels, I was wondering if you might like to get envolved with our as yet small (revitalised) WikiProject. Being a small group currently there is plenty of scope for influencing things and making your contribution count. We are about establishing standards for Novel based articles and writing articles that meet our own and others high standards, and to improve Wikipedia's diet of articles on Fiction books, otherwise called Novels. Please be very welcome. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 10:05, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

just seen you had signed up - so I took the liberty of adding you a userbox on your main page.

Hi, Welcome to wikipedia and to the Novels project. Wander round the Project pages and get a feel for what we are about, then get stuck in with article improvement and writing. Dont forget to use the templates and categories provided. Any questions please ask. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 10:23, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Novels newsletter[edit]

As a long time supporter of this project I thought I would let you have a look over the first draft of a new newsletter initiative. Could you see if there is obviously anything wrong with the concept or text, thanks for you help. I will ask one or two other stalwart editors before formally publishing the first issue. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 13:48, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

The June 2006 issue of the Novels WikiProject newsletter has been published. You may read the newsletter, change the format in which future issues will be delivered to you, or unsubscribe from this notification by following the link. Thank you. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 13:57, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:War machine cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:War machine cover.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 20:08, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Acts of War proposed for deletion[edit]

Hi PeregrineV! Please take a look at Acts of War. It has 16 fields that are filled only with dummy information, such as "~Explain the novel's title.." It probably shouldn't remain that way. It confuses the ISBN-searching because it has a dummy ISBN. I marked it with {{wp:prod}} but that should be removed if you think you can get to it. The Ashes of Eden has some of the same problems.

Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk), Initiating Editor

Auto list news
  • The NovelsInCompleteInfobox has been regenerated at the start of October and was shown to have grown rather than shrunk! So this month I have concentrated my efforts (with some help from Grey Shadow (talk · contribs)) on the novels missing "genre" tags. These "genre-less" have now "all" been dealt with. Hopefully we can break the back of this load of work, but it will need help. It would be nice to get these worklists to a state where they can monitor the newly created articles rather than cleaning the retrospective material.
Collaboration of the Month
  • The Collaboration of the Month is going well. October's collaboration was slightly compromised by the removal of our notice early on; however there were still nearly 80 edits to improve the article. This months Collaboration has been selected by popular vote and is Doctor Zhivago (novel)
Current debates
  • We have a project structure that allows for the formation of special interest task forces (al la "WP:MILHIST".) This is useful for identifying groups of Novels editors who have a common interest. (i.e. Science fiction novels, Crime Novels, Children's novels, Classic literature, Russian novels etc.) Would there be interest out there in setting one or more of these up. Comments please to the General Forum.
Newsletter challenge

Last months Liponym challenge was met by Springeragh (talk · contribs), but the article is still a "very" small stub.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Perfect-justice-cover.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Perfect-justice-cover.gif. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Gay Cdn (talk) (Contr.) 02:38, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

  • A new policy proposal has been started and the various points are to be seen at Wikipedia:Speedy deletion criterion for unsourced articles, please take a look at these and comment. This is a vital subject and all editors should consider the implications. These are NOT active yet, but could have wide reaching consequences. Please contribute your views.
  • We have a project structure that allows for the formation of special interest task forces (al la "WP:MILHIST".) This was mentioned last month and a few have indicated interest.

The Novels WikiProject Newsletter
Issue XIV - July 2007

What is a novel? What are the elements that must be found in any piece of writing for it to be considered a novel? I think it fair to say that traditional definitions of the word “novel” work along these lines: A novel is a fictitious prose story of book length. In my view, a novel has six basic elements: 1) It must have a society of characters; 2) They must be undergoing transformations; 3) And those must be in the course of a sustained prose narrative; 4) The sustained prose narrative must be impelled by a plot; 5) And it must be unified by clearly discernible central themes; 6) And to the extent possible, it must be universalised by a complex architecture of allegorical and symbolical sub-strata. If I write those six basic elements into a single definition, I come up with this: A novel is a society of characters, undergoing transformations, in the course of a sustained prose narrative, which is impelled by a plot, unified by clearly discernible central themes, and universalised by a complex architecture of allegorical and symbolical sub-strata.

Current debates
  • After lengthy discussions about the {{Infobox_Book}} it has settled down at a possibly permanent layout. Any suggestions are still of course welcome.
  • Also the important book cover debate mentioned first above.

Issue XVI - September 2007
Project news
  • During August we signed up to the WikiProject advertising facility {{wikipedia ads}} initiative.
  • Our tagged articles now number over 14,000 and more are being added every day. In reality the article count for our project scope is likely to be much higher so the more who can get involved and assist the process of improving the quality of the articles the better.
Member news
  • The project has currently 261 members, 7 joined & 0 leavers since the last newsletter at the start of August 2007.
  • A number of editors have signed up to our "task forces" without signing to the main project so the figure could be slightly higher.
Other news
  • Although many editors are doing sterling work actually working on writing and maintaining articles we could always do with more volunteers to assist with the project wide tasks.
  • Our Collaboration of the Month is in need of more suggested articles for our attention and more votes for those already proposed.

  • During 2007 we have seen membership grow from just below 200 to just below 300. Also our tagged article count now runs at about 16,000 considerably up on this time last year. It highlights the message given from last year that there is much work to do improving and caring for this corner of our "wikiworld". Sadly our Auto-list editor moved on and we sorely need an able replacement. On a more positive note we have seen the establishment of task forces, style guidelines and peer review. Our latest outreach initiative is the Novels Job Centre.

An election has been proposed and has been set up for this project. Description of the roles etc., can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Coordinators. If you wish to stand, enter your candidacy before the end of March and ask your questions of anyone already standing at Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Coordinators/May 2008. Voting will start on the 1st April and close at the end of April. The intention is for the appointments to last from May - November 2008. For other details check out the pages or ask.

Cover images[edit]

I am surprised you haven't fallen over this problem before. Some are insisting that all "Fair use" justified images also use a template to structure the information added in support of the copyright images used for cover illustration. Some of us have been highly miffed by this practice, although it may have plenty of merit, is has the effect of upsetting all who have added images via the rules in force at the time of upload. Anyway if you are willing to try and keep these people happy, which I have tried to do myself. the template with a sample verbage uis below


{{Non-free media rationale
|Article="""add the article link in here"""
|Use=Infobox
|Artist=
|Item=Front cover
|Description=Cover for the book """any other description like is it first edition etc"""
|Source=Derived from a scan of the book cover (creator of this digital version is irrelevant as the copyright in all equivalent images is still held by the same party). Copyright held by the publisher or the artist. Claimed as fair use regardless.
|Portion=Entire front cover, but does not include back or insides of original artwork
|Resolution=Is only as much resolution as necessary to identify and show the style of artwork used for the article, not enough to be used for piracy.
|Purpose=Illustrates the appearance of the book and identifies it by recognized features.
|Replaceability=No free equivalent can equal this image (any would be a derivative of this artwork)
|other_information= Image in this form is already widely distributed to identify the book as part of catalogs and reviews, so we degrade no market value by providing it ourselves.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Armbears.jpg}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Armbears.jpg. 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.

The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence[edit]

Hello. I'm contacting you and other members of WikiProject Books in order to find if you are interested in collaborating to expand and improve The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence article to make it worthy of becoming a featured article candidate, in light of the fact that it is the first book the U.S. government ever went to court to censor before its publication. --Loremaster (talk) 22:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Calling all active WP:NOVELS members[edit]

WikiProject Novels Roll Call

If you still consider yourself an active WP:Novels editor, please add your name back to the Active Members list. Also feel free to join any of our task forces and take a look at the project's Job Centre to get involved!

Next month we will begin the coordinator election selection process. We hope to have more involvement and input this time around! More news will be forthcoming. Thanks, everyone! María (habla conmigo) 18:47, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:The-Firm-Cover.gif[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:The-Firm-Cover.gif. 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).

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 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. ww2censor (talk) 16:38, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
