Image Tagging Image:Veryank1.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Veryank1.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then 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 media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Dethomas 18:08, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikimania in Atlanta![edit]

Wikimania 2008 at Tech.jpg

Hi! I noticed your involvement on U.S. South-related articles, categories and WikiProjects, and I wanted to let you know about a bid we're formulating to get next year's Wikimania held in Atlanta! If you would like to help, be sure to sign your name to the "In Atlanta" section of the Southeast team portion of the bid if you're in town, or to the "Outside Atlanta" section if you still want to help but don't live in the city or the suburbs. If you would like to contribute more, please write on my talk page, the talk page of the bid, or join us at the #wikimania-atlanta IRC chat on freenode.org. Have a great day!

P.S. While this is a template for maximum efficiency, I would appreciate a note on my talk page so I know you got the message, and what you think. This is time-sensitive, so your urgent cooperation is appreciated. :) Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 09:41, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

Hello! I saw your edits at Montoneros, and, being a bit too much curious, found out that you were a law librarian. So I allow myself to attract your attention on Augusto Pinochet's arrest and trial and universal jurisdiction entries, which both would benefit from some scholarly improvement. Now that the trial of Pinochet has been unexpectedly suspended (although much of the cases continue to be investigated), it is a bit easier achieving a stable version of this page. Hope you don't mind this notice, fare well ! Tazmaniacs 00:48, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of F+A Architects[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated F+A Architects, an article you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/F+A Architects. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Alphabetization and collation[edit]

I am inviting you to comment, in your capacity as a librarian, at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#Alphabetization and collation. -- Wavelength (talk) 21:51, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

The discussion has been archived at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Archive 107#Alphabetization and collation, with the instruction "Do not edit the contents of this page." The discussion is still open for comments at Wikipedia talk:Lists#Alphabetization and collation. Thank you for your interest.

Nu-Way article[edit]

As you probably noticed I have made some edits to the Nu-Way article. I see that you created it and have contributed to the majority. I was just going to let you know I am not trying to take it over. I had been wanting to make a Nu-Way article for a long time, but never got around to it. Next time I looked into creating it, it was already done. I have tried to do some updating and revision. I went back and tried to make my citations similar to yours so that it would look clean and more uniform. I still have some things I had planning on adding. The main one is creating a section just for features, and recognitions. There have been numerous ones, and I figured that would be a good addition. That would add to the content and to the overall notability. Let me know if you have any ideas to work on or if you have any problems with my edits. Let you know your thoughts on it. Thanks. Brinkley32 (talk) 23:35, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I am back in Macon for the weekend (been away at college). I can take some pictures if you need me to. I am not sure exactly how to upload them and all, but I am sure I could figure it out. Also what pictures would we need? Just the one downtown? If so, the sign or the "storefront"? I always go to the one at Zebulon, but I don't know how that would go over since that is only one in the chain, not the main one. Let me know whenever you can. I may go ahead and take some tomorrow downtown anyway, since you probably won't have time to respond. Just let me know what you think. Brinkley32 (talk) 05:26, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new WP:Law task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Walshga,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Regards, Andrew Gradman talk/WP:Hornbook 06:00, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Request for help concerning energy...[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you listed yourself as a participant of the Energy WikiProject.

There are 2 new outlines in this area that attempt to consolidate Wikipedia's coverage of their respective subjects, gathering and organizing the articles about them into one place and including descriptions for convenience. The purposes of these outlines are to make it easier for readers to survey or review a whole subject, and to choose from Wikipedia's many articles about it.

The new energy outlines are:

Please take a look at them, and....

if you spot missing topics, add them in.
if you can, improve the descriptions.
add missing descriptions.
show parent-offspring relationships (with indents).
fix errors.

For more information about the format and functions of outlines, see Wikipedia:Outlines.

Building outlines of existing material (such as Wikipedia) is called "reverse outlining". Reverse outlines are useful as a revision tool, for identifying gaps in coverage and for spotting poor structuring.

Revising a work with multiple articles (such as Wikipedia) is a little different than revising a paper. But the general principles are the same...

As you develop these outlines, you may notice things about the articles they organize. Like what topics are not adequately covered, better ways to structure and present the material, awkward titles, articles that need splitting, article sections lacking {{Main}} links, etc.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me on my talk page or at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Outlines.

Thank you. Sincerely, The Transhumanist 00:58, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

P.S.: see also Outline of energy
