Image copyright problem with Image:Ecm.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Ecm.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 11:24, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ecmlogo.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:Ecm.jpg. The copy called Image:Ecm.jpg has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

Bica Coffee[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Bica Coffee, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.bicacoffee.co.nz/.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

Dude, stop putting in that bit about people in Porto calling it a "Cimbalino". That's something that is only done in Lisbon soap operas by Lisbon actors. RTP even did a story about that, they roamed the streets of Porto asking about the word Cimbalino and NOBODY had even heard the word, much less used it.

Nobody uses that word, it's just an urban legend. Stop editing it in. In Porto it's 'um café, por favor'. That's it. No BS made up words... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Therealwakkawakka (talkcontribs) 15:52, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Well i've been to Porto and asked for it and got it.....I know the word is not as popular as it was before, fact is, it is still known as that to the older generation. As for RTP doing a story on how no one knows what it is, is there a clip that i can see, ive never seen it, but i have seen this which i just randomly found now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IelixgcGj1w --Rockysantos (talk) 06:37, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

The reason for that is simple. In some cafés they're so used to having people from Lisbon ask for one that they have gotten used to it. I'm from Porto. Believe me that the word is not known in the older generations. My own grandparents have never heard of it and they were born in the 30s. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.81.142.107 (talk) 15:02, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Caipirinha[edit]

Please don't rv. to an unsupported version, especially w/o an edit summary that supports you change. Thanks, TMCk (talk) 23:53, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

You removed it becuase it only had 1 reference, I added another and it has since been changed again. Maybe you don't remember why you removed it?? Or are you just too blind to see the change that you wanted?? Rockysantos (talk) 10:28, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
No need to be offended nor rude. Your revert [besides that you didn't include an editsummary] was based on one source that just expressed the opinion of a bartender (not RS) and another that didn't back up what was claimed in the edit (the source only says:"It was certainly at this time that the famous poncha, related to the ponche in Cabo Verde and to the caipirinha in Brasil appeared." Also you seem to misunderstood my own editsummary. Take another look at it and you might found out the true meaning. thanks for giving it a further consideration.TMCk (talk) 21:08, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Pubopoly[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Pubopoly requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Air Base No. 5[edit]

Hello Rockysantos,

In Portugal in World War II, you have written that "In 1942 Lajes Field on the Azores was assigned the name Air Base No. 5". In Lajes Field, it is written that "Lajes Field or Lajes Air Base (Portuguese: Base Aérea das Lajes), officially designated Air Base No. 4". Who is right? Is it the Air Base n°4 or 5?
