Thanks for your great work on that article. (Here's hoping it grows in importance!) Cheers, CWC(talk) 01:38, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Featured article? Good idea! I'd like to help, if I can. I certainly don't have any ideas for significant improvements at present. I read a few blogs, mostly right-of-center; if (as I hope) it makes an impact there, I'll let you know. Cheers, CWC(talk) 12:51, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

I'd like to thank both you, Tjss, and you, Chris, for covering the emergence of the Euston Manifesto (EM) online so fairly. As one of its authors, there is an obvious conflict for me in my editing its page.

The manifesto will be launched in the "real world" in about a month. It would be very good for the debate---and we do want a serious and high-quality debate---if this launch could be made a current event and the quality of the entry by then is sufficiently high for it to be featured on Wikipedia's front page. I think the EM's sections on open source and freedom of ideas should make the document of particular interest to Wikipedians. Counsell 13:43, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi. I found a couple of interesting links; see Talk:Euston Manifesto. I haven't added anything the article itself, sorry. But it's shaping up very nicely without me ... good stuff. By the way, at least two of the four main Manifesto authors have excellent blogs: http://normblog.typepad.com/ (Norm Geras) and http://www.pootergeek.com/ (Damian Counsell, aka User:Counsell). Cheers, CWC(talk) 13:50, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

== TfD nomination of Template:User supports UN ==[edit]

Template:User supports UN has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for Deletion page. Thank you. --preschooler@heart my talk - contribs 06:44, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Improper user page[edit]

You're the first admin on the list, so I'll ask you about this. User:Roulette36 has a user page that is racist and offensive. It consists of a single sentence: "Mexicans are dirty." I have advised him that this does not conform to wikipedia policy. If he does not change it, or changes it back, can you please block him or advise me of who I should ask for further action. Thanks. --Tjss 00:20, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Hello! I see that you have already blanked the offending comment from the user-in-questions' page. Wikipedia:User_page#What_can_I_not_have_on_my_user_page.3F shows that polemical comments should be avoided & WP:CIVIL and Wikipedia:No personal attacks stress that attacks on third parties should be avoided and that good Wikipedians remove them on sight. If the offending remarks are replaced, the user can be warned with the various policies pointed out. If they persist then a block request can be made to an administrator with the repeat offence evidence as a demonstration of the requirement. Regards,  (aeropagitica)  (talk)  05:48, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
In that case, I would like to officially request that User:Roulette36 be blocked. After reviewing his contribs, he appears to have thirteen instances of vandalism since 12 February 2006, most of them including racist remarks, especially towards African Americans. I note that on his talk page, he has been warned three times by different users that his actions constitute vandalism, and was threatened with blockage on Feb 13. This user shows nothing but indifference to wikipedia policy and general sensitivity. --Tjss 05:57, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
I have left a message on Roulette36's userpage to say that his next vandal effort will be his last. The user appears to edit infrequently on Wikipedia, so I prefer to give them a chance of redemption rather than to block in absentia. Regards,  (aeropagitica)  (talk)  06:22, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

User:Monkey boy007[edit]

Hi. I've left a warning on User talk:Monkey boy007. Let's hope he calms down. If not, AFAIK the proper thing to do is leave stronger and stronger warnings, then (if necessary) ask an admin to take a look at things. Cheers, CWC(talk) 16:59, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

"Democrat Party" article[edit]

Hello. Someone has written "Democrat Party" article that dignifies this perjorative term. The correct name of the party, of course, is "Democratic Party." Wikipedia is considering deleting the Democrat Party (United States) article. I hope you will weigh in on the topic here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Democrat_Party_(United_States) I believe an article about this perjorative term doesn't belong in an encyclopedia. Griot 00:27, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Delegative democracy listed for deletion[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Delegative democracy, has been listed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Delegative democracy. Please look there to see why this is, if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Geoffrey Howe resignation speech[edit]

Thanks for moving Geoffrey Howe resignation speech to wikisource (I just deleted the Wikipedia copy). However, when you move articles between different wikis, be sure to follow the procedure outlined at meta:Transwiki. That requires copying the history of the original article to the talk page of the destination page. Wikisource also require to add {{from en}} at the top of the article and to log the move at s:Wikisource:Transwiki log (Liberatore, 2006). 12:31, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:ACampbell.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:ACampbell.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Talk:Boston Tea Party[edit]

Howdy, I noticed that you and I seem to post in one or two articles dealing with progressive issues in political science/sociology. There's currently a debate beginning in Boston Tea Party as to whether the article should include the category [1]. It meets definitions set in the articles Terrorism and Definition of terrorism, however, there are several self-proclaimed patriots who watch BTP who refuse to recognise the fact. The simple criteria for terrorism generally seem to be intimidation or destruction of property in order to change public policy or public opinion while a state of war has not yet been declared. Some users would rather use recent acts of terrorism as a yardstick, rather than using a firm definition, and hence lose their ability to discuss matters calmly. Would you be able to pop in to the Talk page and join in the discussion? Thanks much, samwaltz 05:21, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Article Creation and Improvement Drive[edit]

Thanks for supporting my nomination of David Ben-Gurion on the Wikipedia:Article Creation and Improvement Drive. I see you support Kadima, so perhaps you are Israeli or Jewish? You may be interested in, and I'd appreciate your expertise on, a few pages I started regarding Israel's bilateral relations; Israel-Japan relations, Israel-Venezuela relations, and Israel-New Zealand relations. There's a revived movement to merge the Israel-Ven relations page into nothingness and I could really use some oppose votes' if possible. Respectfully, Republitarian 01:44, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks so much for the oppose vote. Your support in this matter is valued. Respectfully, Republitarian 03:49, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Spamming[edit]

Sorry for spamming you. I didn't think it was against the guidelines (it seems like there are more rules and restrictions everyday). Anyway I was just trying to get the word out so someone would finally help me out on an article. Speedystickd 00:33, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

ACLU Solidarity[edit]

Thanks for your support with this particular hare. The article has bothered me since it was posted (as the talk page shows), and I'm not sure what else to do. I can look at it, but truthfully, I am mostly a new page scanner, which is how I got involved. (Also, I have a SLOW dialup connection), so it might be hard for me to watch it. Cheers V. Joe 13:56, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Toraja review[edit]

Thanks a lot for the thorough reviews. I'll try to answer your questions in the text, but why do you have already your decision while you haven't read all of them? By the way, all of your question is regarding knowledge about the subject. I cited only from anthropologists studies, as I listed in the References section. If I can't answer some your in-depth questions, then perhaps there is no knowledge about it. Again, thanks. — Indon (reply) — 08:38, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Inline citation[edit]

Hi Tjss, sorry to send you directly to your talk page. I am afraid you are wrong about inline citations. Per WP:CITE, there are 3 styles:

  1. Embedded links
  2. Harvard referencing
  3. Footnotes or some people call it cite.php.

Both three offer inline citation in different style. Inline citations by embedded citations and footnotes are automatically placed in the text, but Harvard is different. In Harvard referencing, inline citation is given by (Author Year) format that point to a specific bibliography item in the References section. Some people may confuse the term inline citation that is always by footnote: <ref>...</re> format. Yes, it is inline citation for Footnote style, but not the other 2 styles. Footnote can be used in Harvard and embedded links to make a real footnote (note that is not a main topic of the article, as I used also in Toraja article). Since Wikipedians favor Footnote citation style than others to do inline citation, many are confused that inline citation is always footnote, but Footnote is not mandatory. I quoted from WP:FOOT:

N.B. The Cite.php footnote system is not mandatory; editors are free to use a different method. See How and where to cite sources.

Cheers. — Indon (reply) — 17:17, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

It's all right. No need to apology ;-). Actually, I like your review. It's very thorough and I need that. Thanks. I'll try to improve the article to fix what your objections for GA. Cheers. — Indon (reply) — 19:20, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, you created Iran Freedom and Support Act back in July. Unfortunately, the source(s) you provided did not support the content in the article. I have since changed the content to accurately reflect the source(s). I'm sure it was an honest mistake, but please be careful in the future. Thanks, KazakhPol 23:06, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Democrat Party[edit]

Back in June, you participated in a wiki discussion about deleting an article called “Democrat Party (United States).” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Democrat_Party_%28United_States%29). It was agree to delete this article and redirect it to Democratic Party (United States) -- the real name of the Democratic Party. However, someone has revived the Democrat Party article. Would you care to weigh in on this at that article’s Talk page? I think a redirect is in order in accordance with the decision we reached last June.

Image:Susan Estrich.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Susan Estrich.jpg. I notice 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 {{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 any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Chowbok 02:23, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Frank B. Cooper School[edit]

I've nominated Frank B. Cooper School, an article you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but in this particular case I do not feel that Frank B. Cooper School satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion; I have explained why in the nomination space (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and the Wikipedia deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Frank B. Cooper School and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Frank B. Cooper School during the discussion but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you.Inkpaduta 16:03, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

This form message is being sent to you either due to your membership with WikiProject Good Articles and/or your inclusion on the Wikipedia:Good article candidates/List of reviewers. A new drive has been started requesting that all members review at least one article (or more, if you wish!) within the next two weeks at GAC to help in removing the large backlog. This message is being sent to all members, and even members who have been recently reviewing articles. There are almost 130 members in this project and about 180 articles that currently need to be reviewed. If each member helps to review just one or two articles, the majority of the backlog will be cleared. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy. If you have any questions about this drive or the review process, leave a message on the GAC talk page. --Nehrams2020 01:02, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Non-free use disputed for Image:HagridKnockturn.jpg[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:HagridKnockturn.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read carefully the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content and then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure 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 05:16, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:HPSShack.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:HPSShack.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 11:24, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Cast-flint.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Cast-flint.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, 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, 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: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. 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. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 07:54, 19 August 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Angr 07:54, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Rennard.jpg.

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 (talk) 19:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Steve bays.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Steve bays.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 04:55, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Image:Irene_stewart.jpg[edit]

I have tagged Image:Irene_stewart.jpg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Some examples can be found at Wikipedia:Use rationale examples. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/Non-free. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 16:04, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Fang.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Fang.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Asenine  22:28, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Politicalsigns.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Politicalsigns.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, 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, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:42, 28 November 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sherool (talk) 19:42, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are listed as a GA reviewer. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!
