Copyright problem: Veteran identification card[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Veteran identification card, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/services/treatment-benefits/tb-health-card, and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Better source request for File:NATTC Pensacola logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 21:05, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Ways to improve Aircrew Survival Equipmentman (PR)[edit]

Hi, I'm AstroChemist. Topbookclub, thanks for creating Aircrew Survival Equipmentman (PR)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. There are too many sections in the PR article. It's not written cohesively.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. EzPz (talk) 07:40, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't believe there are too many sections at all. In fact, there are a few more sections that should be added to finish up the article. V/R, Topbookclub 10:00 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Cut and paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Aircrew survival equipmentman[edit]

Your edits to aircrew survival equipmentman have been a mixed blessing; while there were some useful additions (particularly the piece about the Leap Frogs no longer jumping after sequestration, which was properly referenced), the re-introduction of capitalisation was against the Manual of Style as summarised at WP:MILTERMS and WP:JOBTITLES. The cut-and-paste move is covered in the section above (please don't do this - it creates a nightmare for the admin who fixes it). I've also removed the "see also" section that you introduced - for which the guidance is at WP:SEEALSO. I may have been a little unfair here, but I couldn't see anything in that section that wasn't already mentioned in the text, and was relevant. Please don't take this the wrong way - I'm trying to help by pointing you to the guidance, as was done for me many years ago. Good luck with the editing, and more power to you - hopefully your efforts will always be well directed. Shem (talk) 22:27, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Discussion of relevance[edit]

Topbookclub, there's a discussion, started by me at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Capital_letters#Revert_of_changes_to_WP:MILTERMS that you may wish to comment at. Shem (talk) 19:54, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Cover of 61 Chevy.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Cover of 61 Chevy.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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 02:47, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Sacred Society WALL OF LEGENDS.jpg[edit]

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

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA 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 take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

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}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File 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. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:50, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Klaus Wagn[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Klaus Wagn has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Wgolf (talk) 22:02, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
