January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to United States Armed Forces may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • |branches={{nowrap|[[United States Army]]}}<br />{{nowrap|[[United States Marine Corps]]}}<br / {{nowrap|[[United States Navy]]}}<br />{{nowrap|[[United States Air Force]]}}<br />{{nowrap|[[
  • of the United States|President]] following [[World War II]], (1939/1941-1945) and during the [[Cold War|Cold War's (1946-1991) onset, created the modern U.S. military framework; the Act merged

Allegiance field in infoboxes[edit]

Hello, the allegiance field in Template:Infobox military unit is intended to only be used to "indicate the allegiance of units which are not part of the regular armed forces of a sovereign state". As such, I've removed it from the the Canadian armed services articles as it's not appropriate. Hope this is OK with you. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 22:31, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I've also removed it from those NZ and Australian articles. From reviewing the history of this talk page I presume that you are (talk · contribs) who I also left a note about this yesterday. Nick-D (talk) 22:44, 11 January 2014 (UTC)


This has already been discussed a number of times and most editors have agreed that the United States' language will be kept simply at English; that's it. No other country article uses a regional variety of the same language as the national or official language. We would appreciate if you stopped periodically coming and trying to change it or else you will be given a warning for disruptive editing and it will only be reverted again. Thank you for your cooperation. Cadiomals (talk) 09:11, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:Australian SASR, Afghanistan 2011.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Australian SASR, Afghanistan 2011.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you object to the listing for any reason. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:57, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

I have just deleted this and File:Australian Troops in Afghanistan.jpg which you also uploaded under a clearly incorrect claim that the image is free of copyright because you found it through a Google search. Please read WP:COPYRIGHT before uploading any more images - Wikipedia takes copyright issues very seriously, and you will be blocked from editing if this occurs again. Nick-D (talk) 22:27, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Please pick an account and stick with it[edit]

On another topic, I note that you are still simultaneously editing as (talk · contribs) and UnbiasedVictory (talk · contribs) (for instance, in the Australian Army article where you used the IP account to add the above copyright violation images into the text). Please select one of these accounts and stick to it so that it is clear to other editors who is contributing what. I would suggest that you use this account given that editing through a registered account gives you some extra user rights (and is generally better regarded by the community), but you may use whichever account you prefer as long as you stick to one. Nick-D (talk) 22:31, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Canadian Flag[edit]

Please refrain from altering the flag used for Upper and Lower Canada in various military articles to use the modern maple leaf flag. That flag was not used until 1965, it was the Union Flag of the United Kingdom previously so the changes you're making are incorrect. Thanks. Canterbury Tail talk 15:49, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Image placement[edit]


Pleases avoid sandwiching text between two images that face each other, or between an image and infobox, navigation template, or similar. --Moxy (talk) 00:19, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:RoryMacdonaldCanadianMMAFighter.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:RoryMacdonaldCanadianMMAFighter.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. January (talk) 21:33, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

March 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Wolseley Expedition may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Speedy deletion nomination of File:USTroopsDominicanInvasion.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:USTroopsDominicanInvasion.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. – Wdchk (talk) 00:44, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Better source request for File:USTroopsDominicanInvasion.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) 03:10, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced material[edit]

Hi. Please stop adding unsourced claims to the British Empire article. If you'd like to start a discussion on the talk page, and provide references for this claim that you are adding (which implies that the independence of the United States was being fought over), please do so.
