Speedy deletion of New Jersey Ballet[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on New Jersey Ballet 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 company or corporation, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. bd_ (talk) 06:22, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Formatting references[edit]

If you want the references to show up at the bottom of the page, you have to use not only the reference tags, but also use either the <references/> or the {{Reflist}} tags.

There is a tutorial on how to use references at Wikipedia:Citing sources. I hope this helps. --Eastlaw (talk) 23:06, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

July 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" is strongly discouraged. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. A number of your changes appear to serve little purpose than to promote a specific institution rather than discuss the topic on the individual articles.Novangelis (talk) 22:42, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Sixth and a Half Avenue[edit]

At this time "Sixth and a Half Avenue" is simply a nickname for a short mid-block pedestrian mall. It is not the actual name of an actual avenue, so please do not add it to any other articles as a "crossing" for east-west streets. Beyond My Ken (talk) 07:14, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your concern and your interpretation. It is a named street by city officials, regardless of how strange that is. Please use article's talk page to discuss more. Z22 (talk) 19:10, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Can you please provide a citTION for where the pedestrian corridor is carried on the city's rolls as "Sixth and a Half Avenue"? Not, that is, a city officially referring to it as such informally, but something official. Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 23:30, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Okay, continuing discussion on the article's talk page. Please watch that page to help improve the article. Thanks a lot. Z22 (talk) 02:35, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

high-speed rail dispute[edit]

Hi, I was trying to get other users to buy in to abiding by an WP:RFC before posting it, do you think that's a waste of time and I should just go ahead? Imho we have two competing sources for the distance between those two stations, Railway Gazette on one hand and Google Maps on the other. AadaamS (talk) 19:21, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

AadaamS, If the RFC process does not require us to seek an agreement to abide by the outcome prior to the start of the process, then we should not waste time trying to convince the parties in dispute first. I think the best thing for us is to simply follow the process, whatever that is. As I am reading it now, it appears that we should try to work out on the talk page first, which we did but didn't go anywhere. Next is to try WP:3O. However, this is not applicable to disputes with more than two editors. It appears that this issue already involves more than two editors. The next step is to start RFC. It will be great if you can start the process as you seem to be better at articulating the issue on dispute in a neutral way. Let me know I can help further on this. Z22 (talk) 20:38, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes there is no requirement to have everybody agree before posting it. I went ahead and posted the WP:RFC so hopefully we can be done with this edit war soon. I think after the RFC that everyone will be required to abide by the RFC whether they want to or not or be blocked. Thanks for your input and especially that you went and independently verified the the distance using google maps. The outcome will be interesting. The last time I posted an RfC I gained a lot of insight in how Wikipedia works from an experienced contributor. AadaamS (talk) 22:06, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Hello Z22. Thank you very much for your support, with Aadaams, about this "edit war", and for the consensus you try hard to obtain.
It seams that, at last, a consensus has been accepted by my opponents. Their sentence now has no more sense and relationship with its chapter, but maybe are they happy with that.
Unfortunately, the same guy decided now to attack the "Land speed record" article, I entirely remade two years ago...
Best regards. --FlyAkwa (talk) 10:32, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

tirelessly you go into the dispute at Land speed record for rail vehicles just as the smoke has cleared over at High-speed rail and yet again you stay out of the personal attacks and stick to finding and debating sources. Your conduct in disputes is an inspiration to other editors! AadaamS (talk) 06:36, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:US federal government shutdown notice by Statue Cruise.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:US federal government shutdown notice by Statue Cruise.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 08:39, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification, Stefan2. I have uploaded another image to Commons with CC license which does not use the "fair-use" rationale. I changed the article to replace this non-free image with the one I just uploaded to Commons. At this poit, no other article uses this non-free media file and it should be removed. Thanks.

High Speed Raik in Germany[edit]

Please be careful with your edits. Germany still has conventional InterCity Services as per their own website (http://www.bahn.com/i/view/USA/en/trains/overview/ecic.shtml). - Bhtpbank (talk) 09:58, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for you input, Bhtpbank. According to that web page, it says, "Faster than regional trains, IC and EC trains connect major cities, reaching speeds of 200 km/h." Based on this web page alone, all IC services are at higher-speed rail range. Maybe you can point out to the specific page that talks about some of their IC services that are running at conventional speeds. I do not live in Germany so I may be missing some concepts here. If you referred to the lower speeds regional trains which are also listed on their web page (http://www.bahn.com/i/view/USA/en/trains/overview/regional_and_urban_trains.shtml): Regional-Express, Regionalbahn and S-Bahn. Those are regional rail which are not strictly inter-city rail we are talking about. We can discuss more in the higher-speed rail talk page so we can share our thoughts with other editors. Thanks again. Z22 (talk) 05:34, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

DYK for Space selfie[edit]

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Curiosity rover's first space selfie post.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Curiosity rover's first space selfie post.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.  — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:53, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your thought on this, Crisco 1492. I have edited the article to use a reference instead of using this non-free image. Z22 (talk) 18:18, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
