The Way of the World on peer review[edit]

Hi, Robinoke, thanks for listing The Way of the World on peer review, and for doing such great work on the article! It's a highly interesting subject to me, I'm delighted it's getting attention. The best way of getting plenty of input on peer review is to reply to the comments you do get, btw. Other potential reviewers will be much more encouraged if you seem interested in getting comments, and that way you'll have a chance of getting some real dialogue going. I've just edited the peer review instructions to recommend this simple trick, after I'd noticed what a difference it makes, so I though I'd mention it to you, too. Best wishes, good luck with your work. --Bishonen | talk 17:29, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

re: VfD for Push-pull factors for colonists[edit]

You asked for help nominating this page for deletion. I've responded to your request at Wikipedia talk:Votes for deletion#Push-pull factors for colonists. I recommend against deletion but if you want to, you should do so via Wikipedia:Redirects for deletion which has processes and templates which are less disruptive to the functioning of the redirect during the discussion period.

The other implied part of your question was a more general one of "how do I nominate something when the VfD sub-page is already populated with an existing archive?" To the best of my knowledge, that process has never been documented. Here's what I do:

  1. Tag the article with {{subst:vfd}} and save the page.
  2. Edit the article and change the link in the VfD header from [[Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/{{PAGENAME}}|this article's entry]] to [[Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/PAGENAME (2nd nomination)|this article's entry]]. Note that instead of the template automatically reading the pagename through the brackets, you must paste in the real pagename and add the " (2nd nomination)".
  3. Now proceed normally to follow that new redlink to the VfD subpage and explain your reason for nominating for deletion.
  4. When you add the listing to the VfD list, you will again have to make sure that the link is pointing correctly to the "PAGENAME (2nd nomination)" subpage.

It's complicated but it works. It doesn't really happen that often which is why we've never tried to document it before, I suppose. Hope that helps. Rossami (talk) 00:10, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Jim jarmusch 1.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Jim jarmusch 1.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 05:16, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi Robinoke. I know this is many moons after your comment about the plethora of pop culture references in the Jezebel article, but I heartily agree! If you are still interested in moving this huge list to a separate article, please see my comment this date on the Jezebel talk page. (I am a near-Luddite, so I don't know how to create a new article.) Thank you :) Z Wylld (talk) 17:39, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Robinoke! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. Please note that all biographies of living persons must be sourced. If you were to add reliable, secondary sources to this article, it would greatly help us with the current 2,878 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Mark Bowden - Find sources: "Mark Bowden" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

Non-free rationale for File:Wayoftheworld1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Wayoftheworld1.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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:21, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
