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.

Images tagged as non-free[edit]

Hello. All images that are tagged as copyrighted and are non-free must comply with all rules of Wikipedia:Non-free content. This includes Wikipedia:Non-free content#Policy rule # 10c, which states:

The image or media description page [must] contain ... The name of each article (a link to each article is also recommended) in which fair use is claimed for the item, and a separate, specific non-free use rationale for each use of the item, as explained at Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline (emphasis added).

There is currently no reference to the Sports in the San Francisco Bay Area page on the File:NewNinersStadium.jpg page, only a reference to the Levi's Stadium page. That is the rationale for my removal of this image on the Sports in the San Francisco Bay Area page. If you wish, you may add a separate rationale to File:NewNinersStadium.jpg, but be warned that others feel that non-free images should NOT be included within gallery sections under Wikipedia:Non-free content#Non-free image use in galleries or tables. Regards. Zzyzx11 (talk) 01:33, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited! Wiki Loves Pride

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride, a global campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia during the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. The project is being spearheaded by two organizers with roots in the Pacific Northwest. Meetups are being organized in some cities, or you can participate remotely. Wikimedia Commons will also be hosting an LGBT-related photo challenge.

In Portland, there are two ways to contribute. One is a photography campaign called "Pride PDX", for pictures related to LGBT culture and history. The Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, June 21 from noon–4pm at Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 236 at Portland State University. Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own laptops and cords.

Feel free to showcase your work here!

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. -- Kheider (talk) 17:54, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 31 hours for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule, as you did at Pluto. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Lord Roem ~ (talk) 19:01, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

{{unblock|1=I completely and totally misunderstood the meaning of the self-revert rule}}

I took it to mean that I was immune to the three revert rule, as I was simply undoing what I felt were abusive and threatening actions by others. I was actually in the process of writing a note of apology to Mendaliv for my misunderstanding when I found that I was unable to type anymore.

I also have a few questions, if I may: Did the obvious fact that I had misunderstood the meaning of the self-revert rule work for me or against me? Given that Mendaliv felt there were better alternatives to blocking, why was I dealt the harsher penalty? Why was I the only one blocked, when those others committed several violations, including the rotating edit war? Why was I blocked for a prime number of hours? And will all of this affect my efforts to force a scientifically accurate and consistent wording on the original issue?

Even I you do not answer my questions, I appreciate you reading this far.

Hi. I wanted to let you know that I have nullified your unblock request, because your block has expired and I don't want to cause hassle for our already overworked volunteer admins. If you have questions, use {{help me}}. Thanks, Lixxx235Got a complaint? 14:04, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
