I just recently contributed an article on Jacob Abraham Uitenhage de Mist, much of which I translated from Dutch which I don't know at all. I noticed you're at school in Uitenhage. The route by which I got to writing an article on De Mist was a red link (to DeMist) from another South African school I was looking up. Mike Hayes (talk) 22:42, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Thank you for responding. By all means, if you have any info you would like to add to the de Mist article, go ahead and do so. There is very little info available in English about him on the Internet. I have done all the work I intend do do on the article myself. Mike Hayes (talk) 00:11, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Mxitpc screenshot.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Mxitpc screenshot.png. 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).


  • I am a bot, and will therefore will not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used once again.
  • If you recieved this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to somewhere on your talk page.

Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 12:45, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Communist Party of Canada logo.svg[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Communist Party of Canada logo.svg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 '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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Hammersoft (talk) 16:30, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Stellenbosch to bid for Wikimania 2012![edit]

Hi Terminator!

The nascent South African Wikimedia chapter has decided to bid to host Wikimania in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 2012. This would be the first Wikimania in South Africa, and would be a great advertisement for our country. Please take a look at meta:Wikimania_2012/Bids/Stellenbosch. If you can add to the discussion, please do. If you feel that you are able to do anything to help, please join the Wikimedia South Africa mailing list and let us know. Even simple messages of support are valued!

Best regards,

David Richfield
