Link spam[edit]

There's no quick, automatic way to tag and remove link spam. You must check this guy's contributions every once in a while and revert them if appropriate. You did well to leave a note in his talk page. There are a set of templates (see Template:TestTemplates) you can use to produce increasingly strong warnings. Check the resources at Wikipedia:Vandalism. I'll be watching this user's talk page for changes. If he continues to vandalize, he'll eventually get blocked. Don't worry; reverting such vandalism is easy. Thanks for caring! --Pablo D. Flores (Talk) 10:52, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Whisky[edit]

Thank you very much for your encouragement! You, too, have done excellent work on the whisky pages. Tell me, is Scotch popular in Germany? I seem to encounter more German Wikipedians than Scottish ones! CarolGray 20:22, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliments. For many years, Scotch was only popular as blend and was an "old men's drink" - or consumed by youngsters along with coke. Single Malt Whiskies are getting more popular for the last 20 years or so, with a significant gain in popularity for the last 10-5 years. Like many things, Germans tend to take things "serious" and do things "right". So a lot of people interested in Scotch and especially Single Malts do this almost overzealous and sometimes even pseudo-religiously. Tastings are celebrated, and people who tasted 3 different flavours so far think of themselves as connoisseurs. I have some friends on the British Isles (and one even happens to be the webmaster of a Highland distillery) and they all have a much more natural or occasional approach to drinking Whisky. Maybe it's comparable to the approach of Germans drinking beer. To all the Irish and British people I know, Whisky is just another liquor. Maybe a little bit of national pride, but not fanatism. In Germany, this seems to be the other way around. :-) --Pmkpmk 16:23, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
I am glad to see the full diversity of malts becoming more widely appreciated worldwide. CarolGray 14:09, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Bundesland-level categories[edit]

Hello! I see you are listed in Category:Wikipedians in Germany. I have made subcategories for each Bundesland in case you would like to add yourself to the appropriate one. See Category:Wikipedians in Germany for a list of the subcategories (they use the English names, the same as their Wikipedia articles). --Angr (tɔk) 16:13, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Poser 6 GUI Image[edit]

I'm wondering how you can release all rights to it, when it seems that you don't even own any rights to it. If you're a devoloper of Poser, I apologize, but you should probably change the license. PirateMonkey 23:45, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

I would recommend the {{Windows-software-screenshot}} tag. PirateMonkey 03:49, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Anne Will[edit]

Hi! I am responding to your post at Wikipedia:Requests for investigation. There's not too much we can do, as the person isn't persistant enough (about once every two weeks) to justify semiprotection. I have added the page to my watchlist, and maybe another admin or two can do the same.

Another thing that might be possible is to add an HTML comment to the page that is visible only to editors, not to readers. For an example, you can click the "edit" button on this message to see an example of what we could add. In your opinion, do you generally feel this would do more harm or good?

Which licencse would you suggest? --Pmkpmk 14:45, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

A thank you and a question...[edit]

Thank you so much for the welcome note you placed on my talk page, although I'll admit it gave me a bit of a turn at first as I was convinced it was due to the fact that my first attempt at creating a Wikipedia page had faltered at the gate. I went back to check the entry and see now the error that I made, though am unsure how to correct it, perhaps you could give me a little advice, or tell me where to go to find it if you are not the right person for the job?

My source for the story in the piece that was tagged "citation needed" was the Seattle punk rock music scene of the late 1980's and early 1990's. This was the era of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Hole, L7, Sick and Wrong, and other Seattle second wave punk rock and grunge bands. The story was one that floated about at parties as a sort of cautionary tale for why one should never trust a record company employee. In other words, it was a typical punk rock musician's paranoiac rambling over authenticity and why you can't trust an outsider.

My question is: is the Seattle music scene's oral tradition based solely on the writer's memory a valid source in the wikipedia tradition? I suppose it depends on the context, as does anything. I'm looking forward to improving my wikipedia editing and participation skills! Thank you again for the warm welcome, and I'm looking forward to the scotch article. (Dalwhinnie is my current favorite, though Lagavulin and Oban I also like.) Strike71 16:26, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading Image:Massive.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Fair use rationale for Image:Poser6ui.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Poser6ui.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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 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. (ESkog)(Talk) 15:40, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
