Image Tagging Image:Peter-mintun-pianist.gif[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Peter-mintun-pianist.gif. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore 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}} 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. Longhair 11:42, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Certainly[edit]

The TIME tag is actually quite misleading. For a fair use image to be considered "fair use" there must be a valid fair use rationale given. None was given, and the image wasn't being used for fair use purposes (please review fair use before telling me it was actually being used appropriately), therefore I deleted the image from Wikipedia. We had a glut of TIME covers, and they had to be culled. It was certainly an unpopular move on my part, but one which I do not regret. - Ta bu shi da yu 16:52, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Akamai Foundation[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Akamai Foundation, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (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 discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{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 source problem with Image:Consuelo velazquez.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Consuelo velazquez.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, 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 files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. 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 09:45, 22 June 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Alex Spade (talk) 09:45, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

speedy tag on Rob Kardashian[edit]

Hi, I removed the tag you put on this article. I don't think this qualifies for a speedy delete, since there is some question about notability. If you still think the article should be deleted, perhaps you should prod it or send it to AfD. -- Deville (Talk) 00:45, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassador needed[edit]

Hi! My name is Annie Lin - I'm the Campus Team Coordinator at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm contacting you because you're listed as a resident of San Francisco, and we're currently looking for a friendly Wikipedian to teach students in a University of San Francisco class how to use/edit Wikipedia. This is a role titled the "Wikipedia Campus Ambassador," and you'll basically be doing in-class presentations about Wikipedia, running Wikipedia labs/workshops, and in general providing face-to-face Wikipedia help for the professor and the students in the class. The time commitment is about 3-5 hours a week (with variations throughout the semester), and for this particular University of San Francisco class, most of the workload will be between March and May.

Please let me know if you're interested!

Thanks. Annie Lin (Campus Team Coordinator, Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 20:15, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

San Francisco meetup at WMF headquarters[edit]

Hi Yurivict,

I just wanted to give you a heads-up about the next wiki-meetup happening in SF. It'll be located at our very own Wikimedia Foundation offices, and we'd love it if some local editors who are new to the meetup scene came and got some free lunch with us :) Please sign up on the meetup page if you're interested in attending, and I hope to see you soon! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 23:19, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit]

Hi, Yurivick!

Here you said that there were Russian and Kazakh nationals on board. However the original BBC source only said Italian, French, German, and British passengers.

I'll see if I can find a source for Kazakh (I already found Russian) Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 03:01, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

In relation to your contribution to the Robin Hood page entitled the 'Evolution of Concepts'[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for your contribution to the Robin Hood Wikipedia page.

I wrote a Masters degree on the origins and development of the legend of Robin Hood (RH) earlier this year, and ever since I have been endeavoring to tidy the Wikipedia page up, and to that end I find your contribution to be useful.

I especially like your opening, where you discuss how Robin Hood has evolved. However, might I suggest that you take the time to revise your contribution slightly? Immediately after your opening you talk of Robert de Locksley. Whilst useful, I believe that your contribution here might be more usefully located under the sub-title 'Robin Hood's of history', where you could start a new sub-section on de Locksley, to go along with the Robin Hood's of York and of Wakefield etc. I believe that such action would make the information easier to find for someone searching for evidence of historical Robin Hood's. That said, you have unfortunately failed to provide a footnote citing from where this information derives. As a part of writing my thesis I tried to locate information on Robert de Locksley, but failed to identify a valid historical source, and so if you have a citation to back-up this point it would be a very valuable addition. Otherwise, strictly speaking, under Wikipedia's Terms and Policies, the information should be deleted. But I believe that that would be a shame because, as I say, its useful stuff, and accurate citations relating to Robert de Locksley are hard to come by.

I also note that you have provided information which states that Robin Hood originated from either Swannington in Essex or Loxley, Warwickshire. Personally, I really like the Loxley idea, especially given that the Loxley tombstone which marks the grave is identical to that which formerly resided at Kirklees. Alas, there is no other evidence to suggest that the outlaw operated in Warwickshire, and as I am sure that you are aware, all of the early evidence suggests that RH originated from northern England, and predominantly Yorkshire, as did Robert de Locksley. Therefore I believe that, in all probability, the grave at Loxley is not that of RH. Still, it is worth a mention on the Wikipedia page, but should, I would suggest, be located under the sub-heading of topography. Here, once again, you have not provided an academic footnote. Yes, you have cited Brian Benison, who says that he is so confident that the man who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor is from Swannington, near Ashby, that he will give money to charity if he is mistaken. Brian's new book, Robin Hood: The Real Story, sets out the case that Robin was actually Roger Godberd, a farmer from Swannington. But this is a piece of original research, and is thus in violation of Wikipedia' 'No Original Research Policy' under its Terms and Conditions. Indeed, the work contains absolutely no works to specified historical sources. In short, the citation is not fit for listing on Wikipedia. Besides, Benison has quite clearly missed the point, because the evidence of the Berkshire Rolls of 1261-62 prove that the Robin Hood legend was by then already well established. However, Roger Godberd did not become an outlaw until AFTER the end of the Second Barons War (1264-67), which proves that he cannot be Robin Hood. I would suggest that he give that money which he has promised to charity!

Finally, you give other information pertaining to the topography of the legend, but again, this would be better suited under the sub-heading topography.

In sum, I really like your contribution, but would request that you divide it into suitable sub-divisions. And, of course, you really ought to work on providing suitable citations. I could make the said changes myself, but in truth I don't want to undermine your efforts as I understand that that is very frustrating.

Wishing you well,

Siggasonswein (talk) 22:05, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Siggasonswein, you made a mistake, my contribution was only cosmetic. You need to identify the user who made a change you want to talk about and send him/her a message. Regards, Yurivict (talk) 23:27, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
