"untrue statement"[edit]

I can actually picture some fairly obvious ways for that not to be untrue.--SarekOfVulcan 08:17, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Summit-lorez.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Summit-lorez.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator.

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you have questions about copyright tagging of images, post on Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags or User talk:Carnildo/images. 12:01, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

sarcasm?[edit]

I don't know how the `sth happend to fasiscists' statement feats into Wiki. But it's your pagina.

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Andy Shaw, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree, discuss the issues raised at Talk:Andy Shaw. If you remove the {{dated prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Image:29 the cat.JPG[edit]

I have a cat that would let me do that to him too, and probably it wouldn't hurt or bother him at all, (and it would be funny, because I'd know I wasn't hurting him) but the picture as it stands is kind of disturbing and is unlikely to ever be used in any encyclopedia article. Someone has already tagged it for speedy deletion and I'm inclined to do delete it. Please let me know what your intention was in uploading this photo. Cheers. Dina 04:25, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for responding. It isn't really an issue of censorship, so much as utility. Wikipedia doesn't generally host images purely for creating galleries on userpages. I did not tag the image as offensive (someone else did)-- as I said, I can see that the cat probably isn't being harmed. But it's difficult to see where else in the encyclopedia the image could possibly be useful (we don't have an article on Fake kitty torture) and it's clearly offended at least one editor. That's why I asked. Note: Adding it to Animal abuse was, honestly, not the world's smartest idea. It will likely be deleted very quickly, whether I do anything about it or not. Cheers. Dina 04:57, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Commodity Fetishism and diamonds and cars and pearls and anything luxury...[edit]

With your rationale, you would quite happily and arbitrarily add a link to any article that seems to fit the notion of commodity fetishism. If diamonds are an example of commodity fetishism is quite different to a related page link. The 'See also' section is to direct the reader to articles that RELATE to diamonds NOT luxury in general. Your link is irrelevant to the article topic. SauliH 05:19, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:29 the cat.JPG listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:29 the cat.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion.

Thank you. — MECUtalk 13:38, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:S1-kultur-2 copy.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:S1-kultur-2 copy.jpg. 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

License tagging for Image:Thigahmahji martinlut 101b.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Thigahmahji martinlut 101b.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

Vi Daley[edit]

To revert to a pre-vandalism version, I had to overwrite your updates to her page. Please feel free to re-add them. As the aldermanic election nears, People are mistakenly believing that vandalising her page will help or hurt other candidates. Most serious challengers believe that Daley's record should be made public and that rational discussion of her strengths and weaknesses will lead to appropriate results in the election. So addition of NPOV positive and negative information to her page will be welcomed and not arbitrarily deleted. But I am keeping a close watch on it for vandalism.

AfD nomination of American Merchant Stripes[edit]

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Chicago Coalition for Change and Progress[edit]

A tag has been placed on Chicago Coalition for Change and Progress, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Piuro 19:45, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --Darkwind (talk) 09:52, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

The Chicago paper was published by anarchists, the kind of Germans that the fascists murdered. The fascists certainly did not borrow ideas from them just because they wrote in the same language. Are you thinking of the Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung? --Orange Mike 01:45, 28 August 2007 (UTC) (hopes you realize "Zeitung" means "Times")

yes i understand that but im more interested in how people of any political base will have the need to study and criticize other political structures. I was actually making a link (putting those double brackets in) of Arbeiter Zeitung on the - i forget - haymarket riot page? and when it was blue, i clicked on it and found the fascist article and all i could think is how ideas flow from one direction into another meaning that the anarchist workers paper printed in chicago would have a fascist counterpart printed in germany several decades later! The first must have affected the second. The population of germans in chicago was tied to the germans in germany by family, history, language, culture etc. and this would help these ideas promulgate.

?What fascist article? There was an anti-fascist paper of the same name in Austria many years later; but no fascist paper had that name. Are you sure you don't have things mixed up here? --Orange Mike 02:06, 28 August 2007 (UTC) (in schöne Milwaukee)

oh shit maybe i put somethign in my bong that i shouldnt have, but i could swear thta there was a fascist paper of the same name on here......

Little context in Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Declined to delete[edit]

Well knowing that it is an historic newspaper, I have declined to delete it as an admin and removed the tag. I have also added to it a little and added an academic reference. There should be no further difficulty. The date from your apparent source is probably not correct, and I am checking. The title is being moved to Arbeiter-Zeitung (Chicago) per the Manual of Style. DGG (talk) 15:22, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

The political graffiti gallery[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to explain my edit to you: I removed the gallery in the Graffiti article itself because there is already a link to a gallery of political graffiti present (the commons template in the external links section). The 'Uses' section also starts with an example of political graffiti and that is sufficient for the article itself as an visual example: see guidelines Wikipedia:Guide_to_layout#Images. I suggest you add the pictures to the gallery in commons, if you'd like. I also want to note that some of the pictures in the gallery weren't political though: e.g. the viking graffiti, the kilroy graffiti. Or what do you suggest?

Flip vertical
Rotate by angle
90°
180°
270°

Say, "Rotate by angle", 90°.

This will fix an image like, Dillinger alley redressed for movie.jpg, would now be how it is supposed to be. I would be embarrassed to post such a simple fix.

Emma Goldman's grave[edit]

The picture, we thought, would help us find it as we aimlessly wandered through the Waldheim Cemetery yesterday. Luckily it was a beautiful day.

Is it possible for you to give me some sort of idea as to where this is? I heard it isnt too far from one of the entrances and Im wondering if we were in the complete wrong cemetery alltogether as we were surrounded by different ones on all sides of the street.

It would be much appreciated.

Can you email me at myyellowchair@gmail.com?

7th millenium BC figurines photo[edit]

Hi, thank you for uploading this photo. Unfortunately, I've had to remove several instances of its usage because the the phrase "anthropomorphised rocks" is factually, grammatically and syntactically incorrect. There are numerous fields that study such figurines, these include archeology and art history, but linguistics is not really one of them. The subjects within the work of art may be anthropomorphic, however the same cannot be said of the medium. Otherwise, for instance, you could describe a painting as an "anthropomorphised canvas". ˉˉanetode╦╩ 23:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Swaptree.com[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Swaptree.com requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Accounting4Taste:talk 20:55, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Graffiti Blasters[edit]

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. -- Luk talk 13:11, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps you can change your force of habit and upload in the future at the commons, so we all can benefit from your contributions.

Replaceable fair use File:Nytimes_occupywallstreet.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Nytimes_occupywallstreet.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please remove the tag.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 02:43, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Nytimes occupywallstreet.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Nytimes occupywallstreet.jpg. 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).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions. If you have a question, place a {{helpme}} template, along with your question, beneath this message.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.

Your contributed article, History of debt[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, History of debt. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as yourself. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Debt. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Debt - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Mr. Vernon (talk) 05:16, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Image source problem with File:Fort Dearborn.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Fort Dearborn.jpg.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. 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 15:14, 5 November 2011 (UTC). 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. Kelly hi! 15:14, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Thinking cap[edit]

Proposed deletion of Thinking cap[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Thinking cap has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not a dictionary

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of David Caton[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on David Caton requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Re:Wikimedia Stories Project[edit]

Hi Victor;

thanks for thinking of me for your interviews, feel free to send me an e-mail here with the details.

Sao Paulo Event[edit]

Hello Victor!


Your portuguese is pretty good. Did you have that translated?

I must apologize, I am not in Sao Paulo, so I will not be available for an interview. I am actually in Haiti, doing after-quake aid work. If you ever stop by here, I'd be happy to give you a story. :)

-Alex — Preceding unsigned comment added by Charlesblack (talkcontribs) 21:47, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I cant take credit for the Portugese, I let Google Translate do all the work! Yes, I'd be interested in speaking with you via Skype or Phone or whatever means is easiest for you! Unfortunately I have no plans as of yet to travel to Haiti.


Hey Victor!

First of all, I wanna thank you for giving us such opportunity. Second, I'm living on Sao Paulo as now, so I'm pretty sure I will be able to meet you when you come here, and tell my history for you. Feel free to drop another message in my user talk so we can talk further about this.

--Agentel (talk) 23:19, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi Agentel,

I'm glad to hear that you are interested in attending! Do you think you can come to the event we are holding? Are there any questions you have for me? I'd like to be as open as I can be! :D

Victor Victor Grigas (talk) 23:47, 8 February 2012 (UTC)


Hi Victor; I'm quite interested in the opportunity to talk about my experiences as a Wikipedian, even though most of my editing happens in the English language Wikipedia. If you need any help with translation as well, I'm a near-fluent American English speaker (and native Brazilian) and I'm willing to help with WikiSampa in any capacity required (within reason). Let me know if you need anything.

Hi Ed,

That's Great! Thank you for your interest in helping! I see you put your name on the 'who wants to go' list on the signup page. Are there things that might deter you from coming? Do you have any questions for me? I'd like to help! :)

Victor Grigas (talk) 23:54, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi Victor,
I cannot be sure I'm going to be available at March 1st, I teach English to small children on Thursday mornings and early afternoons, but my Fridays are mostly free. So my participation, at least so far, is tentative at best. If you need help with translation when I'm not teaching, I'm definitely there! Just let me know. ;)

Dear Victor. I'd love to participate in this Stories Project. Unfortunatelly I have a trip to a mission in Antartica (yes, really), starting March 6 and untill March 27. If you can antecipate that schedule or if you'd like to communicate through skype or phone, that'd be alright. I can try to record something from Antartica as well, saying how Wikipedia has helped me excel in my work environment and give me these kinds of opportunities. Anyway, feel free to contact me again, I hope we can arrange something. Regards. leguas (talk) 00:47, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Because of the nature of the work I do, I can't say exactly when I will be finished with my San Francisco customer, but I would be surprised if it was after 1:00 p.m. How about if I post here on this page when I am wrapping up, and then I will head downtown to Wikimedia Galactic Headquarters?

Hello, Victor. Let me know when you going to Russia.--Soul Train (talk) 11:37, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Sure! - I have tentative plans to travel around 6-12 to 6-21 but these dates are not set yet, and may change. Can you do me a big favor and refer me to some Wikipedians whom I should talk to? Victor Grigas (talk) 21:58, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Your message[edit]

Hello, Victor! If you plan to go to Russia, I can help to translate your message into Russian. And if you yourself do not know with whom you can meet, then it's not a problem. Can I ask in the Russian Wikipedia, referring to you, who will meet with you. But I myself participate in your idea to, unfortunately I can not. And I apologize for any poor translation of this letter) Thank you. --Korol Bumi (talk) 07:32, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Korol Bumi!

Thank you very much for your reply. I'm sad that you aren't interested in participating, because I have many questions for you, but I'm very happy that you want to help me to find some interesting editors. Can you introduce me to some interesting editors whom you know?

Can I send you a document in Russian and you can read it and tell me if it is correct?

Thank you!

Victor

  • Of course, on the translation into Russian, you can right now) I can not participate personally, because physically I did not get to do it. I live in the Transbaikal region, which is very far from the main mass of editors RuWiki. I'll write a post about your arrival. But what exactly is to write about? And with any Russian (possibly large) you copied the editors on this? Someone has to meet Al. Thank you. --Korol Bumi (talk) 08:27, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
I think first and foremost, you need to write Vladimir Medeyko (Dr Bug: meta and RuWiki). So it will be more accurate. Do not worry, he knows English well. And the translation I will help you, so send your text, I will be happy to help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Korol Bumi (talkcontribs) 08:48, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

User page images[edit]

Hello, your user page is about 18 MB heavy, are you sure this is wise? Nemo 10:47, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Collapsing the images will still make people load them on page opening, you need to move them on another page or make them smaller. If you want to transclude them here there's perhaps some way (which I don't know) to load them dynamically, but the easiest thing to do is to place them all on a subpage and direct people there, so that those who don't care about loading such a huge page can just do it, and those who arrived on your user page randomly e.g. to click "talk" or to check your user language information can do so.

Proposed deletion of You Weren't There[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article You Weren't There has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability, and none found in my search as per WP:BEFORE. No obvious redirect target.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Please archive your talk page[edit]

Hello! I just wanted to request that you archive your user talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Franz Huth[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Franz Huth requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

Cloud filmmaking[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Cloud filmmaking, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://vimeo.com/57467478.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 22:21, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cloud filmmaking[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Cloud filmmaking requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that your 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. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 01:20, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Frank Bardacke[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Frank Bardacke 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.

Re: Updates from ‘Help distribute WikiReaders and provide an opportunity for kids to learn!’[edit]

Hello,

I wondered if it was feasible or possible to monitor the activity levels on each WikiReader? Presumably, we fit each WikiReader with a program logging all activity (The times the articles are opened and closed, and the names of the article) somewhere. Then someone retrieves just the logging information from these after 6 months. At the same time, we might also be looking towards possibly replacing the memory cards with updated ones.

That way, we could be potentially looking towards some good research on how these Readers are utilised by the children, which would help immensely in understanding various kinds of trends. [What I had in mind was something similar to the Hole in The wall project by Prof Sugata Mitra, which makes me think directly contacting them might not be a bad idea either.]

Do tell me your thoughts on the same. Cheers, TheOriginalSoni (talk) 11:06, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi,

I don't know how we could implement this, I just think that it would take quite a bit of work, and then you have ethical considerations about 'monitoring' people (children) who look things up. I think that your idea would yield better data, but i think simply looking at grades over time would be less energy intensive (no need to program or install anything) and more ethical. I'm open to your ideas about this too. (and sorry for the delay, I have been away for a bit) Victor Grigas (talk) 14:10, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello,
I think it could be worth a shot to ping the prof, and see what he thinks about it. What do you think?
Also, if we're looking at grades, there will be tests based on General Knowledge, right? Not strictly school grades
[No worries about the delay. It's fine :) ]
Cheers,

Hi, Victor!

At xh:User:WhisperToMe I have a list of proposed topics for the Xhosa Wikipedia. Many are related to South Africa, and if Xhosa articles are established in these topics it can lead to more people coming to the Xhosa Wikipedia. WhisperToMe (talk) 04:50, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

South African high school video[edit]

Hello Victor, I've previously conversed with you about the video, although I can't find which talk page that was on. You said the video is still being prepared, which I well understand, but I would love, love, love to show it in the opening session of the EduWiki Conference on 1st November. Is there any chance the video will be available for public consumption by then? Cheers, MartinPoulter Jisc (talk) 11:22, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi! So the 2 minute trailer should be up and online in about a week. We are still working on the full documentary, and don't have an exact date for that yet. I'll publish blog posts when each are up :)Victor Grigas (talk) 15:33, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
That's great. It's only the trailer that I need, if that was the children's message video that Sue showed at Wikimania. But I'll show whatever video there is relating to this awesome project. Cheers, MartinPoulter Jisc (talk) 14:12, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
Looks like it's not online yet so I can't use it in the opening of the conference (but yeah I know how it is with busy blogs that need to be scheduled in advance).

I don't have her photo unfortunately, when I was there, she was on maternity leave, so I never had a chance to meet her. On the Facebook page for the class you could potentially message someone to take a photo and upload it?

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Dub Terminator for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

Video production at Wikimania[edit]

Hi Victor, I've seen your are producing a lot of videos and I'm looking for people who are attending Wikimania this year to collaborate in production (esp. because I am not able to edit video myself) and it's mor fun together. Would you like to join my submission?

And do you know other Wikipedians who could be interested? I (hope I) will be offering a production tutorial, too:

--BR, Jan S. (media) 09:47, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Jan!

I'm happy that you got in touch with me, so I have several ideas about this. It sounds like your first submission is a sort of informal video-tech gathering, no? It's cool and if I have time, I'd love to participate, (I just signed up for it).

But your second submission really interests me. I'd love to talk to everyone about tools to create video. I'm a big fan of low-tech and high tech cameras. Basically the community is made up of a huge volume of people who have computers and can edit and move things around online, but not alot of people who can create very polished video because those tools are VERY expensive, and other outlets (like Vimeo.com) attract the more professional video types of people. It also takes a great deal of time to make a high-quality video. Let's just estimate that for every ten editors, maybe one has a decent camera, and for every ten with a decent camera, maybe one knows anything about shooting for video. You could keep dividing based on access to money for equipment, et cetera.

Now, that said, I have an idea. What if we created a place to:

  • Attract more video/audio contributors from outside the movement (like reach out to the YouTube & Vimeo crowds)
  • Divide and share tasks in a semi-organized workflow with a production queue, like a ticket system in programming. I would think that we could establish something that allows the maximum number of community members to get involved without having a camera, just a computer.

For the first part, we could make a video that we post to YouTube and Vimeo where we could read an open letter to the crowd of Vimeo and have a URL on the bottom of the video linking to our place for such collaboration. This way, we can attract professional video producers to help create content.

for the second part, Once we can establish a system to say what kinds of content should be created, then the community can make scripts for it, then established shooters can shoot the footage, and maybe we can upload it to vimeo to share (since .webm and .ogv is not easy to edit) and find editors to work on it and sound mixers to mix the sound, captioners to provide captions, etc.

You should message User:Nkansahrexford, User:Fuzheado, User:Ragesoss, User:Rock drum, User:Fabrice Florin. They all have some level of video production experience. I know a closed-captioner who donates his services to create subtitles for all my videos too.

Basically, video benefits when there is a producer, not just a 'one-man-band', because there are so many elements to it. It sounds like the kind of thing that could really scale if we could create some kind of group on Meta or something. Or maybe this would need it's own thematic organization? I like sharing tools, but networking is what makes video better, and I'd like to bring that idea to your presentation.

Thoughts?

Victor Grigas (talk) 23:11, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

@Victorgrigas: @Jan Schwefel: I like this idea, and actually was thinking about it just a few weeks ago. This is the 10th year of Wikimania, and I actually have some video interviews from 2005 in Frankfurt that I wanted to try to edit together before London. In order to collaborate on this, we'd have to have some idea of the story line we wanted to pursue, and also the shooting style we're looking for. BTW, if you haven't seen, this is the video creation project I started last year Wikipedia:WikiProject_Wiki_Makes_Video. -- Fuzheado | Talk 04:08, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Andrew, this is a great start. I'd start with the 'suggest' section and go from there. I think we need a few people to get started with this. Who else have you met who might be interested?Victor Grigas (talk) 16:23, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
@Victor & Fuzheado: thanks for your enthusiasm, that sounds all very good! Here in DE Volker Grassmuck just started a big project "Videos for Wikipedia articles" – perhaps a possible cooperation with you?! As you might have seen, I currently introduced WikiTV to the en.wiki and have started a list trying to find all the Wikipedians involved video projects that we already have/had: List of WikiTV & WikiVideo projects, if you know more please post them there. --BR, Jan S. (media) 13:44, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
a) For the Wikimania I've started the collaboration site wm2014:Videos - let's plan the productions all together there, OK?
b) For the general Wiki+video planning there should be one place to get ideas and planning together instead of a hundred places. I've heard and seen so many ideas and "I want to have"s on this matter – the question is that users get together and do it + that many more other Wikipedians get to see the results. --BR, Jan S.

Proposed deletion of Fakeflash[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Fakeflash has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No statement of notability. Could not find any reliable sources other than the one already mentioned in the article. A google search returs that most of the results are blogs that claim it is in fact a Windows virus, not a Mac OS virus as the article claims.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
