Ambiguous link[edit]

Thank you for your recent edit to François Havy. Your edit included one or more links to the page French, which is a disambiguation page. This type of page is intended to direct users to more specific topics. Ordinarily we try to avoid creating links to disambiguation pages, since it is preferable to link directly to the specific topic relevant to the context. You can help Wikipedia by revising the links you added to François Havy to refer directly to the most relevant topic. (This message was generated by an automatic process; if you believe it to be in error, please accept our apologies and report the error to help us improve this feature.) --Russ (talk) 18:20, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Dictionary of Canadian Biography[edit]

I apologize if i've stepped on any toes and "welcome" to the editing of DoCB articles. When I started on those, I received many corrections from the founder of the project, User:Fawcett5 who had a format in mind and I stuck to it. The important thing, however, is new articles under DoCB. I'll watch for your name and try to avoid changes that are style oriented. I can't say that I won't edit your articles, (or you mine) because that is the whole idea of Wikipedia. Welcome again and happy editing! --Stormbay 17:16, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

I appreciate it[edit]

Thanks alot there, Steve. I just got pissed off because it looked shitty, it wasn't all about self promotion. So you're a Canadian college student? Where do you attend? My webmaster of my website goes to school with me here in Austin, Texas at the University of Texas and is from Canada. I'm glad you like the new pic I put up! Cnota 00:30, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Burnaby Masonic reference...[edit]

Do you have an author, ISBN, and page for that book you used to cite Burnaby? As it stands, the ref is incomplete. MSJapan 22:11, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

I thought there should have been a BC&Y reference. We can use that, as there's a slight preference for online vs. print sources for the sake of easier verifiability. MSJapan 22:42, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Henry Pering Pellew Crease[edit]

A few minor formatting tips that aren't typically deal-breakers until an article is scrutinized for FA, but are good to know sooner rather than later. Full dates (day/month/year) and partial dates (month/day) should be wikilinked, but not stand-alone years. The reason is that users can set their preferences to display dates as, for example, 7 July 2007 or July 7, 2007 regardless of what's written. Second, acronyms need to be consistent (with or without periods); the current trend is no periods (according to the Chicago Manual of Style). Lastly, ISBN numbers should be included for book references. Just type it in (eg, ISBN 9-345-88900-33-0) and the software should link it automatically as part of the reference and then users can look up which libraries have it on world cat.

I'll try and give the article a closer reading later and see about bumping it to GA status. In the meantime, keep up the good work; it's good to see you stepping up to bat since some of the more prolific BC history buffs have stepped back from Wikipedia. Cheers, bobanny 22:06, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Congrats, on the GA status for this article. --KenWalker | Talk 15:42, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Since Alexander Begg and Alexander Begg (journalist) were both journalists, could we try to find a better way to disambiguate them? Thanks. Bearcat 19:59, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use disputed for Image:AEBDavie.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:AEBDavie.gif. 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. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 18:27, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

I took care of it. The robots got nervous because the licence tag said it was copyrighted. In the future, use {{PD-Canada}} for Canadian photos that are from 1949 or earlier. They are public domain images, and therefore not under copyright and free to use, so no 'fair use' rationale is needed. cheers, bobanny 20:40, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

RCMP logo.gif[edit]

The RCMP badge was created by Royal Warrant and thus it belongs to Her Majesty in Right of Canada and not the RCMP (ie. it is not a Canadian government creation).

Heraldry is considered as a trademark (by Canadian Law) and thus can be displayed on Wiki for that reason and not because it's on public domain. --Cahk (talk) 10:34, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

images in imageboxes[edit]

Re: Charles Tupper For future images you can add the image size line and then the pixel size (ex: " | imagesize =142px") to office-holder infoboxes to hold images that are too small to be expanded like Charles Tuppers'. Windjade (talk) 21:40, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Alexander Begg x N = ??[edit]

Hi; I see you started the Alexander Begg (1825-1905) article and was wondering if you could help resolve, or perhaps muddle, the question as to which of these gentlemen is which; the "other guy" in Manitoba died in 1897, so he couldn't have been the Alexander Begg who authored the consultancy-type works that you'll find in the refs on Alaska boundary dispute; so presumably, if there are/were only two, then this guy (1825-1905) would be the one; but the article says there was another Alexander Begg working in Victoria as a journalist at the time (the Manitoba-Begg article says nothing about that guy having lived in Victoria....). So could there be a third Alexander Begg? or would the guy "here" (1825-1905) be sufficiently versed in the background of BC history so as to write the very detailed, and highly British Columbian in sentiment, tracts on the BC position re the boudnary dispute? I'm wondering if there's three A. Beggs....http://www.nosracines.ca doesn't solve the issue either, they have a general Alexander Begg listing, and then two breakdowns by "each one" (of two) but the History of BC, and the works on the Alaska Boundary Dispute, they don't so classify. Any ideas on this? if it's "our guy" *1825-1905* then his writing such major works on a then-burning boundary dispute should definitely be in his bio, as also the links to nosracines.ca. The otehr guy I think I'm pretty safe putting hte links to his writings on the Metis Rebellions....if I could be sure that is the Manitoba journalist.....could be worse, they could all be named John Smith....Skookum1 (talk) 03:47, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Setfree small.jpeg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Setfree small.jpeg. 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) 14:33, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
