O. M. Wozencraft[edit]

Weedwhacker128. Good work here. I just made a suggested heading change. I am sure you will revise it if you have a better solution. I see that like me (Perth), you are an Australian living in So Cal.Emargie (talk) 20:38, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for those changes, exactly what was required. He's my first real original page. Didn't realize he was going to be such a stinker when I started it (he abandoned his family in New Orleans when he came out here to go gold digging in '49, and there's some stuff about an Indian orphan girl he "adopted" that I haven't got to the bottom of).

Fair use rationale for File:Gough Whitlam by Clifton Pugh 1972.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Gough Whitlam by Clifton Pugh 1972.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 '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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:28, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

American Idol[edit]

Greetings, and thanks for helping to calm down the fracas at American Idol. Both JackJackUK and Hzh have been warned about edit warring. Technically JackJack is at 3RR, but since they have both at least tried to move this to the talk page, I'm willing to leave both at final warnings instead of outright reporting them. I've also asked for page protection to lock down the article for a couple of days to let them hash it out without continually disrupting the article. --McDoobAU93 18:41, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I just reported the ip for violation of 3RR this has been going on for several days with no end in sight.Andrew Kurish (talk) 23:12, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

All Dogs go to Heaven 2 revert[edit]

Why did you revert my edit All Dogs go to Heaven 2? Please look at it again (It was made on 21:31, 14 June 2012). I made the edit one before (on 21:18, 14 June 2012), but ClueBot deleted it. Why is my edit seen as harmful? It's not like I covered the article with swear words of sexual references. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. --216.97.216.126 (talk) 21:53, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)You've been warned (and blocked) about vandalism enough times now so that your claim of ignorance rings hollow. Contribute constructively or don't contribute at all. --Jprg1966 (talk) 22:02, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Neutral notice of an RfC[edit]

A Request for Comment has been posted for an article on which you have been an editor. If you wish to comment, go to Talk:List of African-American firsts# Request for Comment: Pro wrestling. --Tenebrae (talk) 11:34, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Victoria Police[edit]

Hi, please pay more attention to what you're reverting. I know Huggle makes it very easy to revert with minimal effort, but you are responsible for edits you make with it. In the case of Victoria Police, yes the editor was removing a large amount of content without an edit summary, but the content was mostly unsourced, was written in an extremely negative tone, and was arguably even libellous. If you encounter a situation like that in the future, please read the content and see if there might be a legitimate reason to remove it. Knee-jerk reverts in cases like this can cause a lot more work down the line. Thanks, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 05:50, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Okay. However, I would draw your attention to the entirety of that particular user's contribution to Wikipedia. I also noted the following cleanup of the section, and of course did not revert. I can assure you there was nothing knee-jerk about my revert, especially for that particular page. Weedwhacker128 (talk) 15:29, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:SidViciousNYC.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:SidViciousNYC.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. Hazard-Bot (talk) 09:24, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

CA job case[edit]

Hello Weedwhacker128. I just received a message from you about a link I posted on the CA Job Case Wiki Page, which you thought was inappropriate for an encyclopedic context. I looked into the 'Acceptable Links Guidelines' and I fount that normally you can link from Wikipedia to : "Sites that contain neutral and accurate material that is relevant to an encyclopedic understanding of the subject and cannot be integrated into the Wikipedia article due to copyright issues,[3] amount of detail (such as professional athlete statistics, movie or television credits, interview transcripts, or online textbooks), or other reasons."

I believe that my link was a sort of 'textbook' for the CA job case, where I included a few other links to Wikipedia articles about it's use and history, and I provided a TEST for people to try their skills on, while learning the details of the layout. I agree that an encyclopedic context would assume the reader will only need a brief overview of a given topic, I don't agree that my link did any reader a dis-service by it's inclusion to that page. I have had one teacher of letterpress studies in Washington State use my page for her class, to bring her students up to speed on what can be a slow learning process.

And according to the same wiki page about what to post: "Is the site content accessible to the reader? Is the site content proper in the context of the article (useful, tasteful, informative, factual, etc.)? Is the link functioning and likely to remain functional?"

The content is available from many devices including mobile, laptop, desktop, is it very relevant to the content of that particular article (I didn't post it in a general Letterpress page), and as the creator of the site I intend to keep it up and running for the forseeable future. As such I wish to re-include the link, but I take you criticism on it's merits and I'm glad to have read through the guidelines, thank you for offering the link. I will make another edit and place the link in the 'external links' side bar, and hope that this satisfies my wish to include it and your wish to see it removed from the body of the article.

Take care. TM

p.s. I couldn't figure where to send this message to you, other than here. Sorry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.21.203.161 (talk) 03:14, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
