SCV[edit]

Hi. I do not doubt the factual accuracy of the phrase you added, nor do I believe it was vandalism. Rather, as I noted in my edit summary, the source cited does not discuss the issue of race at all. It does not say that SCV consists of only whites, nor does it say that the SCV is open to all races. It just doesn't say. We have to back up claims in articles with reliable sources. If a reliable source, a newspaper article, for example, discusses the racial makeup of the SCV, it would be appropriate to add information from that source to the article. However, aside from citation to a reliable source, the phrase probably should not be in the article per Wikipedia policy. There might also be a question about the placement of the phrase, as well, given that it might be more appropriate to mention it at a different point in the article. Thanks. · jersyko talk 20:08, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

You're on the right track with this addition, but unfortunately are now bumping up against a different Wikipedia policy: no original research. For example, your addition uses two sources to draw an explicit assumption, thus it is original research. Again, I think you're on the right track. Try, though, to find an article about a black member of the SCV or an explicit statement from the SCV that it is open to all races, for example. I will not remove the material you added that qualifies as original research for now, but do try to replace/reword it in the manner I've suggested. Thanks! · jersyko talk 20:48, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Apologies if I'm not making myself clear. Named individuals should have an existing Wikipedia article. You can see how the list of members on the article satifies this requirement. Membership of the organisation, and proof of their membership, does not verify notability. Forgive me for being blunt, but please do not add these individuals names until they have separate Wikipedia articles.

Louisiana zip codes[edit]

Hey Sf46, it looks like you're trying to create redirect pages for zip codes in Louisiana to go to the appropriate city, but I don't think you're doing it right. I've fixed a few of them (I think). You might want to go and and look at those and see if that's what you were going for. If it wasn't and I screwed up whatever you were trying to do, I apologize. But I don't think that's the case. :) Cheers, faithless (speak) 05:38, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to do, maybe I don't know how to do the redirects right. User:sf46 00:41, 2 November 2007 (CST)

Put #REDIRECT [[Such and such, Louisiana]] in the zip code article. Hope that helps. :) faithless (speak) 05:48, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I think I have it now, thanks. User:sf46 00:50, 2 November 2007 (CST)

Thanks for adding the bit about rank insignia color. Note, however, that you marked your recent edit as a minor edit - please keep in mind the criteria for a minor edit "A check to a minor edit box signifies that only superficial differences exist between the current and previous version: typo corrections, formatting and presentational changes, rearranging of text without modifying content, et cetera." While your edit is certainly accurate, it also adds substantive material to the page, and thus shouldn't be marked minor. CruiserBob (talk) 04:03, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Mascots[edit]

Which living ethnic groups, aside from American Indians, are being used as symbols? Vikings, for example, are strictly a historical ethnic group of sorts. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 13:38, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, there's Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the University of Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns, University of Northern Colorado Fighting Whites intramural team and the Vancouver Canucks to name a few. There's a link to a parallel page that provides a more complete list: List of ethnic sports team and mascot names. Sf46 (talk) 13:59, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, nearly all of which named their teams after themselves in some sense, as opposed to naming their teams after somebody else who have no political clout to do anything about it. That's the distinction that the Indian mascot apologists keep conveniently ignoring. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 14:07, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Well you know that the college Jim Thorpe went to had an almost exclusively American Indian enrollment. Their team was the Carlisle Indians.
Yes, the school itself was the Carlisle Indian School, so it was fitting that the team was the Carlisle Indians. Among current schools, the FSU Seminoles are among the few that actually got permission. Most of them usurped their symbols. I find it funny how some have tried to distance themselves. Like the Syracuse Chiefs using a train, apparently ignorant of the fact that "Super Chief" trains referred to Indians. FYI, I am not on the political train demanding removal of these names. I just think the hypocrisy needs to be pointed out and that this issue will fix itself over time. And also by the way, I can't think of a much worse actually-used nickname than the one formerly used by the Pekin, Illinois High School teams: the "Chinks". Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 14:29, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
To put it another way, "groups" are not offended, individuals in the group may be. Maybe some of Irish descent don't like the "Fighting Irish" name. I've never heard of any being offended, but they have the right to be. That doesn't mean the school should accommodate them. It may be that not all Indians are offended by the use of Indian nicknames. It may even be that some actually like it. But for white folks like Limbaugh to tell them they should not be offended... is offensive. No one has the right to tell someone else how they "should" feel about something.

John William Waterhouse The Lady of Shalott.jpg Thanks for participating in my RfA!
Although it failed 43/27/0, I'm happy because the outcome has been very helpful in many meaningful ways. Your support and remarks contributed so much to this. If you followed my RfA you know what happened. Most of the editors who posted opposing opinions have never edited with me. Some articles I edit deal with controversial topics and with respect to a very few of these, editors who didn't know much about me had some worries about confrontational editing and civility. Since I support their high standards I can easily (and will gladly) address this. The support and ecouragement to run again soon has been wonderful, thanks again. Cheers!

Thanks for uploading Image:Rhodesia Flag 1965 - 1979.gif. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

Johnny Rebel[edit]

I appreciate that you were trying for neutral wording, but some of what you were doing is not the way to go about it. First off, the guy's only claim to notability is a couple of songs he recorded decades ago, which were quite objectively racist (they exalt one race and denigrate others). All of the sources say this or something very close to this. Your changes to the diambig page introduced syntax errors and made it unclear why exactly the guy was notable - what exactly are "racially charged issues"? It's much clearer to note the racist character of his songs. And when I called your changes to the singer's page weasel words, that means a very specific thing - a word used to avoid making a straitforward statement - who are the "many" who deem his music racist? Such words only give the semblance of neutrality. This isn't a statement of opinion, but of fact - he is a racist by the definition of the term, and I imagine he'd want to be known as that. If you want to discuss this further, I suggest you bring it up on the talk page so others may weigh in.--Cúchullain t/c 05:03, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I already explained why the adjective is appropriate, and why your changes were not. And the CSB box states that I'm a member of a WikiProject about Countering Systemic Bias, that's a very specific thing.--Cúchullain t/c 05:03, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:MaryLParkerPhoto.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:MaryLParkerPhoto.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy.

Southern Cross of Honor[edit]

Thanks for putting some references in and cleaning that one up a bit. I've seen the same basic information you referenced in my own searches, but I've been unable to find the actual Confederate Congress act or any detail on those whe were on the AIG's Honor Roll. Have you come across either of these or at least what the primary reference is for each? The actual original wartime list would be great for distinguishing them from later UDC awards. I've seen people posting about award winners (often listed as "Confederate Medal of Honor") but I strongly suspect all those posts are really about UDC awards.

2nd Maryland Cavalry, CSA[edit]

Ogden's Cavalry[edit]

Hi there. I see that you added the above article aback to the CSA regiments category, since, as you wrote, "Needs to distinguish since La had both Union & Confed". However there is a category for Louisiana Union units. The category Ogden's Cavalry is in now is for Confederate units. This is why I removed it from the CSA regiments category. Wild Wolf (talk) 22:36, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Missouri & Kentucky Secession[edit]

Hi, Sf46. Thank you for your response. That's what I understood, too, which is why I am of the opinion that the animated GIF is inaccurate and should be fixed. In its current incarnation, the map makes four statements which contradict other Wikipedia pages, and as far as I can tell, are untrue. Those statements:

— October 31, 1861, Missouri secedes
— November 20, 1861, Kentucky secedes
— November 28, 1861, Missouri joins Confederacy but never under CSA control
— December 10, 1861, Kentucky joins Confederacy, but never under CSA control

This information is so far from the truth that anyone who read it (and didn't know better) would come away with a completely incorrect understanding of what actually happened in those states. While it is true (as you said) that rump governments did secede, they didn't represent or control their states, and had no authority to secede or join the Confederacy. On that basis, I think the map should be corrected.

What do you think?


-asx- (talk) 18:36, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

From what I've read, the Confederacy may have controlled a few counties in each of these states, and each state did have Confederate Army units. Perhaps for a simple fix for now, a note of "(rump government)" could be added next to each state's secession in each of the articles you talk about. Sf46 (talk) 18:53, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:E4ranksa.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:E4ranksa.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Storm trooper image[edit]

I removed that storm trooper image from the article because the use of the free image invalidated the non-free's fair use rationale by criteria #1 and #8 from Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria. Seraphim♥ Whipp 02:28, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Even though the free image you posted does not depict the subject matter as well as the other two, I think you were right to replace the first image with a free image. The second photo is in the history section and depicts the subject with the Star Wars logo thereby demonstrating its significance in the movie as well as the history of the subject. I think it ought to stay unless a free replacement could be found for it. Sf46 (talk) 02:35, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it demonstrates any more significance just because it has the logo in. These costumes are rather well known so they don't really need the logo to help the reader recognise what the costume is. The context is also provided on the page. Another point is that the nuances of the costume depicted aren't discussed in that prose. The free replacement represents the same content of the non-free. Seraphim♥ Whipp 02:52, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
My post to you was civil and informative. I cannot understand what would have "rubbed you up the wrong way". Seraphim♥ Whipp 02:57, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I've uploaded a new photograph that I wasn't actually going to use. It has the Star Wars logo in the picture so I hope this satisfies your concerns :). And if you want to oppose me that's fine. I'm actually more upset that my manner was in some way offensive. If you take a look through my contributions and talk page, you'll see that I do my best to be friendly and helpful.

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

Thank you for uploading Image:ArleneHowellMissUSA.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. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. 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. —Angr If you've written a quality article... 12:34, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:KateHnidaFootballPhoto.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:KateHnidaFootballPhoto.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 12:40, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Image:SallyMugabe.JPG[edit]

Hello. I see you have included a {{PD-self}} tag with this image. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable, at least not unless Zimbabwe stamps from 1992 are legally in the public domain. As an analogy: if I go into a video shop and take a photo of a DVD cover, that does not allow me to upload said DVD cover to Wikipedia as PD-self. The copyright in the image remains with its original owner. Same here. Since Sally Mugabe is no longer alive, I think there may be a case for a fair-use justification, but you need to provide that in full. As it stands, the picture is not likely to be acceptable. 86.132.139.152 (talk) 19:45, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


Image copyright problem with Image:Jimmy Davis.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Jimmy Davis.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 (talk) 05:23, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Jimmy Davis.jpg[edit]

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.

2nd Maryland Artillery[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of 2nd Maryland Artillery, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.2ndmdinfantryus.org/csart2.html. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 02:39, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of 2nd Maryland Artillery[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on 2nd Maryland Artillery requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Your "page move" of 2nd Maryland Artillery[edit]

Please do not "move" pages by simply pasting them in a new article name, as you did with 2nd Maryland Artillery. Copying-and-pasting destroys the page history which must be preserved for any article.

In future, to move a page, please use the "move" link at the top of the page. This is the only proper way to rename a page. Thank you. Pegasus «C¦ 05:25, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Encyclopedia of Cajun Culture[edit]

Dear Sf46,

Hi, I see you undid my deletion of the reference to the Encyclopedia of Cajun Culture (www.cajunculture.com) in the sources of the Acadiana article.

Actually, I'm the owner/editor of the Encyclopedia of Cajun Culture, and I recently took down the Encyclopedia because it was obsolete and too time-consuming to operate.

However, I still use the domain name cajunculture.com, but instead of the Encyclopedia, it merely lists my published books. (I.e., it's not the Encyclopedia anymore, just my book promotion page instead.)

So if you could reinstate the deletion of the Encyclopedia of Cajun Culture as a source for the Acadiana article, I'd appreciate it. Sincerely, --Skb8721 (talk) 03:27, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Please do not add stuff about the KKK to Barack Obama's biography. It may have some relevance in the related campaign article, but certainly not in the main article. -- Scjessey (talk) 20:00, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately, Wikipedia cannot accommodate the gullible stupidity of Americans just because of silly internet rumors. You cannot put this in the article for the same reason that you cannot put "Obama is not a Muslim" and stuff like that. Another reason is that doing so would be a case of undue weight, insofar as the fact that it isn't very important in the context of Obama's entire life. -- Scjessey (talk) 20:14, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Image issues[edit]

I noticed you have added Image:CW Arty M1857 Napoleon front.jpg (a cannon) to infoboxes to support a unit's "artillery" designation. I have the same objection to those images that I did to the animated gifs that I removed earlier: the images do not provide any information not available by the word artillery and the link to the artillery article. Unless you can provide compelling reasons why having a picture of a cannon is necessary to the understanding of the topic, I will remove them from the article. — Bellhalla (talk) 13:56, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

The image(s) demonstrate the type of unit described on the page. We can not assume that every reader knows exactly what an artillery, cavalry, or infantry unit means. While the reader can click on the link to each type, the image gives a quick graphic reference to the type discussed. You keep using the word unencyclopedic which I think is merely a catch phrase that does not at all accurately describe what is depicted. The Wikipedia article on the subject states "While it may offer a definition, it may leave the reader still lacking in understanding....To address those needs, an encyclopedia....also often includes many maps and illustrations."

Thanks for uploading Image:Fordochelogo.gif. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. 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 description page for each article the image is used in.

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Clem1.jpg)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:Clem1.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 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 '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.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:LSU helmet.gif}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:LSU helmet.gif. 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.

File:LSUTigers.png[edit]

Sf46, I've rolled back your edits where you reverted J Milburn - you know that images require a fair-use rationale for use in articles and you have re-added this image to multiple articles without such a rationale....Please don't do this. This is not a negotiable position but foundation policy - Peripitus (Talk) 05:00, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I've just created File:LSU text logo.svg. This image, as it is only text, is ineligible for copyright (yet it is clearly trademarked). Please feel free to use this logo in all the templates and infoboxes you want. No need for fair use rationales or anything like that. I'd be glad to make similar text-only logos for other athletic departments if it means bringing these articles to compliance. I think this is a good compromise. Use text-only logos in the templates and minor infoboxes. -Andrew c [talk] 12:48, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Rationales added. Sf46 (talk)

Thanks for that though reading the rationales "Used in article xxxx to demonstrate logo used by University" I am dissapointed but I won't get involved in the logo silliness going on at the moment. This type of boilerplate, non-specific rationale hardly meets the Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline and really just tells me that you want to display the logos and are doing the bare minimum to justify it - Peripitus (Talk) 22:48, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Bobby Jindal[edit]

Adding the given and official middle name of Governor Jindal does NOT constitute vandalism. Your removal of it, however, does constitute vandalism, and given your long track record of controversy, I would encourage you to stop making changes to articles without specifically stating a genuine case of vandalism.

File permission problem with File:GracieAllen.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:GracieAllen.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the GFDL or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Issuecheck (talk) 05:54, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:31, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. dave pape (talk) 23:33, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

While the standard di-no_permission template may refer mostly to documenting licenses of still-copyrighted works, the same concern about proof applies to public domain claims. Specifically, there needs to be some information to support the claim that the image was published before 1978 without a copyright notice. Rather than re-tag it, I've listed the image at PUF, where you can comment. --dave pape (talk) 18:18, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Vfw-logo2.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Vfw-logo2.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 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 on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 04:31, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted at LSU[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you indicated an association with Louisiana State University. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at LSU, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Baton Rouge and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 17:05, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Sons of Confederate Veterans[edit]

I'm trying to get the list of SCV members fully sourced. I've added sources to many entries but can't locate any for some, including some which you added. Could you see if you can find any sources for those? Sometime soon I'll start removing unsourced items.   Will Beback  talk  06:51, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

I've added citations to all of those for which I've found sources. The ones without sources are the ones without footnotes. There are about 23 of them. Do you need me to list them?   Will Beback  talk  22:16, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Great.   Will Beback  talk  22:23, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
However please don't add names for people who aren't notable, according to Wikipedia's definition. Willie Levi Casey Jr, for example, is not a notable person so I'll remove that name.   Will Beback  talk  22:26, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Irish American Medal of Honor recipients list[edit]

Greetings and great to see you creating this list. I just wanted to stop by before you got too far along and make a couple of comments.

  1. With approximately 200 irish recipients you are looking at a very very large list and you might need to split it up a bit later on.
  2. I think you are going to have a really hard time proving all the Irish recipients however I think that if you start with the ones that are known (ie categories relating to be Irish American or born in Ireland) that is a good place to start.
  3. I would suggest building it in a list format similar to How I did the Jewish, Asian or African Americans lists. By stacking the informatoin the way you currently are the list is going to be very unwieldy and difficult to read through.

Good luck and please let me know if you have any questions. --Kumioko (talk) 18:19, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. –Fredddie 04:47, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

1st Louisiana Native Guard (USA).[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of 1st Louisiana Native Guard (USA)., and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: 1st Louisiana Native Guard. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

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. CorenSearchBot (talk) 16:16, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Johnny Rebel Book.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Johnny Rebel Book.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator 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. Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:04, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

September 2012[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Talk:False River Academy, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. --Orange Mike | Talk 20:10, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm certainly willing to AGF on your part, Sf; but I didn't see any reason to give a segregation academy a free ride. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:15, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
And the characterization of it has been properly sourced. I'm from the Deep South myself, and remember those places with a deep and visceral loathing as exercises in bigotry and hypocrisy. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:19, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit warring?[edit]

Me reverting your unreferenced additions is not edit warring. For someone who has been here as long as you have, I find it surprising you don't know the difference between a primary and secondary source and what is appropriate information to be sourced to a primary source. So, sorry, I will continue to revert unreferenced stuff you put up.Gtwfan52 (talk) 03:01, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with WP:3RR, which you appear to be dangerously close to violating, if not already. Sf46 (talk) 03:34, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
I am familiar with it. I am nowhere near edit warring. If you think that is the case take me to the noticeboard. Reverting your unreferenced additions does not constitute edit warring. You have not brought any claims to the talk page which is required, as you were the initiator of the changes. Like I said, you are welcome to take me to the noticeboard if you wish. The results will be predictable. Gtwfan52 (talk) 03:47, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Removing wikiproject banners from talk pages[edit]

Please don't do it. See WP:PROJGUIDE#OWN for why you shouldn't. In particular: if a WikiProject says that an article is within their scope, then you may not force them to remove the banner. No editor may prohibit a group of editors from showing their interest in an article.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 23:35, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

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

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:CharlesGreyTheUnit.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. Jnorton7558 (talk) 15:09, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pointe Coupee Central High School, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Livonia High School (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Non-free rationale for File:British South Africa Police.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:British South Africa Police.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. Stefan2 (talk) 15:04, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
