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)

Orphaned non-free image File:SaintBarnabasMedicalCenter logo small.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:SaintBarnabasMedicalCenter logo small.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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...

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)

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)

Cotton[edit]

Thank you for some useful high quality images- and for some useful US input. Your images betray that you have visited Lowell and Boott Mill- the articles really could do with a little tlc (tender loving care) I have been working with GLAM on Queen Street Mill and Helmshore, and a lot of other mills eg Quarry Bank Mill but have no access to any US material to help out with Boott Mills. Do you fancy the challenge? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ClemRutter (talkcontribs) 22:08, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, ClemRutter, I couldn't hide the fact that I recently visited Lowell. I visited Boott Mills and Wannalancit Mills, both of which need some love. I don't know if I can contribute much in term of writing because cotton is not really one of my areas. At the very least, I can contribute photos and videos?? Also, I happen to like to go to some unusual or local museums. If that is covered by GLAM, I can continue to contribute more photos in the future. Okay, for the Boott and Wannalancit, how should I start? Z22 (talk) 23:47, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
As you can see, when I have the trust of the museum I blitz the place see Queen Street Mill or Michelin Adventure. My shots usually contain a four digit number. Go for it.
Queen Street Mill is also a mill that has become a textile museum- so could become a good model for Bootts Mills. I see that we have to give a detailed description of the location written to inform a visitor from another continent. This will often involve a bit of cut and paste from other WP articles- eventually someone will accuse us of repetition but it is easy to edit down the text inf required. The history section will concentrate on the economic history/ refering to external events and tech. improvements. We now describe the architecture of the mill: often this can be found in government appraisal documents, and in some cases this is the main feature of the article. I enjoy the bit about the steam-engine (or water wheel technology)- then we can do the looms and other machines and the type of cloth or stuff they wove. Here we can talk about Draper looms, the Northrop turret and Jacquard heads...

And after all this we can describe the building current usages as a museum- and the specific items in the collection. WP brief is to inform the educated individual- but we cannot assume that they are Anglophones or have any background knowledge. Unfortunately I am going to have intermittent broadband access over then next few weeks. But we ought to be able to make a few significant changes.-- Clem Rutter (talk) 20:32, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

COI notice[edit]

Hi Z22

Based on your edits to Traumatic brain injury and the image you uploaded, it appears to me that you may have a COI with regard to eye-tracking. Hence this notice...

Information icon Hello, Z22. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies. Note that Wikipedia's terms of use require disclosure of your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you.

Would youo please explain what relationship you have, if any, with that subject matter? Thank you Jytdog (talk) 04:25, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

@Jytdog: No, I have no relationship or COI to the eye-tracking devices. I just happen to travel to some unusual places and took photos of many devices or things that people would not normally take. My goal is to enhance Wikipedia by adding meaningful visual coverage to articles which would help readers (especially for those visual learners) to understand the subjects better. Eye-tracking device is just happen to be one of them. Please explain why you think that I have COI on this subject. Please also see my past contributions to know that I edited articles in many areas. Recently, I concentrated on equipment and devices. I have more to add for the coming days so please don't treat those as COI. I have been an editor for quite sometime now to know that I need to refrain from editing any articles that might have COI. Please let me know if you still have any concerns.
By the way, anytime I add images, I always try to find references out there, with as much as reliable sources as possible, to be used as inline citations for my images. The link that you removed, although it was a primary source, it is reliable to indicate that the image is actually that device and the components are correct as said in the caption. I don't want other readers to just trust me that I upload the right images. This is my best effort to follow WP:V even for images. Without the citations, how can other editors/readers verify that my images and associated captions are correct? They are not spam links. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

Thanks for answering. I work a lot on COI/paid editing issues. I don't know if you can see WP through my eyes, but I see a lot of edits that are really focused on a given product or company, that seek to emphasize the name or brand and include promotional, poorly sourced content about it in every related article possible. I looked at your editing history and it looks a lot like a typical paid editor's. Like the edits you did on the eye tracker, or like the EnergyPod, where you name the product, featuring it in the file name, and the picture, and add (what is in my view) some poorly sourced content about it, to several articles, including a redirect for the product name, like this. It seems that your primary interest is documenting physical culture, and the specifics matter...and you do a lot of generic stuff (like pictures of the boiler), and you say you are not doing paid editing - I have already pushed the boundaries of AGF by asking you the questions above, and i appreciate you taking the time to answer. So I removed the COI category from your page, that came with the warning above. I do ask you to consider avoiding emphasizing company names., brands etc., and especially, linking to company websites as citations for the picture or content, and creating redirects to product or company names. Those specific behaviors ~look~ really promotional and in my view (fwiw) they don't improve WP. Good luck! Jytdog (talk) 13:18, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
@Jytdog:. I can understand your point of view when looking from your angle because you have to work so hard in fighting off those paid editors. I hope you can also look through my point of view in trying to work with images of physical objects. That is sometime very hard to find the secondary sources that visually describe details about them. I can find many secondary sources on the type and principal of operation of products, which I often use for the text contents. However, most of them don't "visually" describe things. My goal is to maintain verifiability. As you may see in my years of edits, I rarely put any new contents (text or images) without having any inline citations. My believe is that, for all images, independent reliable secondary sources are better than primary sources, and primary sources are much better than no source at all which would suggest those images to be WP:NOR.
Regarding product name. The only reason that I put product name and model number on the image upload is for the sole purpose of identification and verifiability of those images. That being said, I agree with you that it may be better not to put brand name and model number directly to image file name on Commons (even though many legitimate editors do), but rather use the generic description. However, when name and model number becomes crucial in identification of the product in the image for verification purposes, I would want to still put that somewhere, maybe in the least prominence place like in "other information" section. I think you maybe right, if my goal is for image identification/verification only, I should not mention the brand/model number in the image caption when adding them to Wikipedia articles because it adds little values for readers to know brand or model number. So I will start that practice. Also, I agree with you that I should not create product name as a redirect page on Wikipedia. Most of the time I don't, but for that particular product, it already passed the threshold of WP:N. I didn't have enough energy to write a new article about it so I just did a redirect page. Going forward, however, I will not do that for the benefits of all of us. A particular product should have its own page and it should stand for the Notability scrutiny by itself. Non-notable product names (or notable products that I have no energy to write an article about) should not get a redirect page at all. So I will do that going forward.
Regarding references, as I mentioned before when working on text, it is much easier to find independent secondary reliable sources. But for image citations, it is harder to find the right sources for them. Still we should not deprive readers from verifiability by not including citation just because the image citation is from a primary source. Not having citation at all for an image inclusion is worst than using primary sources. I understand your position on secondary sources, especially for medical contents as it becomes appearance in your essay. However, if the caption of an image focuses on the physical description on the object (even though it is a medical device), the WP:MEDRS should not be applied because it does not have a medical claim but it is more to do with the design and engineering in nature which would follow the general WP:RS. I'm still trouble with medical-related articles that hold such high standard on sources for the contents, but almost no citation on many of the images included in the articles with medical claims. For instances, CT images of diagnoses, etc. I think image citation is a big verifiability loophole of Wikipedia. I can't fix the world, but I do my part. I rather have image verifiability though primary sources (for non medical claim) than not having it at all.
That being said, I will add back a reference to the patent document for the image caption that explains the location of the components of an eye-tracker. I tried but could not locate a better secondary source for that. Who to say that the gold-color metal located next to the display lens is an LED for illumination to create glints, except by that patent document? That patent document is hardly a promotional material. It's a legal document with no brand name on it and the assignee on the application is a defunct company so there is no way to promote that particular brand / company through the use of that patent document.
Please read all of my points in the above and let me know your thoughts. Thanks again for sharing your passion in maintaining and enhancing Wikipedia to share the knowledge to all. Z22 (talk) 16:58, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Don't know what to say. You are free to do as you like here. I am willing to believe you, that you are not editing for pay. I work mostly on health related stuff, and Project Medicine has a pretty high bar for sourcing WP:MEDRS and a strong style guide WP:MEDMOS, the reason being that those articles are under intense pressure (lots of money and emotion at stake) for people to edit them badly for all kinds of reasons. I will try to work with you to keep content you add to them, but if we can't find good sourcing, it cannot stay. With regard to sourcing for captions describing pictures... that is a very interesting question to me, and you probably have far more experience dealing with the WP:OR of that than I would. IT seems to me that unless you are dealing with a brochure from whoever made the thing, which says that "gold light causes glint", you are doing WP:SYN by connecting a feature in an image to a description of its function. But I know little about that. Is there PAG or community discussion of that somewhere? I would be very interested to read it! Jytdog (talk) 17:16, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for a great conversation. For that particular case on the eye-tracker, the patent has a great details of drawing, locations, description and operation of each component. There is no need for SYN. A product brochure would be a good source but I try to avoid that as you already noted that it gives an appearance of promotional. I am not aware of any PAG discussion regarding image citation concerns. I think it will start a discussion in MEDRS about that first since it has higher bar for the references. Leaving a loophole to ignore image citations could be an issue for such high-bar contents. It may be more beneficial to other editors to discuss there instead of just on my own page. So we may continue our discussion there. Z22 (talk) 18:55, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── thanks! I look forward to seeing that discussion. Best place to have it would probably be at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine and you will find lots of great folks there - more than at MEDRS. Jytdog (talk) 19:11, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Eye tracking, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Iris and Limbus (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Thanks for uploading File:Saint Barnabas Medical Center Logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 01:03, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

This was the old file that had been used in an article. It is no longer used and can be deleted. Z22 (talk) 02:26, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.[edit]

This message is being sent to let you know of a discussion at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute discussion you may have participated in. Content disputes can hold up article development and make editing difficult for editors. You are not required to participate, but you are both invited and encouraged to help this dispute come to a resolution. The discussion is about the topic Magneto (generator). Please join us to help form a consensus. Thank you! Biscuittin (talk) 23:38, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Please Help![edit]

Please help! I saw that you said "It seems to me is that permanent magnet synchronous generator is just another name for magneto (generator). Maybe we should just change that page to redirect to this page." on 17 October 2013. If you still hold this opinion, could you say so here: Talk:Magneto_(generator)#RFC_on_the_Status_of_This_Article ? Actually, even if you opinion has changed, I still solicit your comment. Chrisrus (talk) 01:58, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

I don't think the question on "permanent magnet synchronous generator" has any relationship to whether the two articles on magneto should be merged or one of them should be renamed. That's said, PMSG article has no source and I'm not sure whether WP:N is established there. So I will propose to delete that article. Also, I already shared my thought on the magneto. So nothing more I can add there. Z22 (talk) 15:57, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
I take it back. There were references added to the article since last time I raised the question on the permanent magnet synchronous generator article. It may pass the notability requirement now. Z22 (talk) 16:15, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
