Picture[edit]

Hi everyone, I'm the original author of this article. I'm new and I've tried putting in a picture, but it's all worked out wrong. If someone could put picture NonFreeImageRemoved.svg at the beginning of the infobox on the right of the main article, I'd much appreciate it. Arkhiver 06:04, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Novels Project[edit]

Hi, thanks for adding this article and taking such care in it's production. I have added the iamge as you requested and made a few subtle changes. First is to change the stub notice to a reference to the template and second to move the Talk page notice for the project to here.

One more thing the standard naming convention for such a page as this would have the (Novel) as (novel) i.e. in lower case, so the reference should be [[Dissolution (novel)|Dissolution]]. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 10:19, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

[Arkhiver] Thanks for the picture! :D I'll remember the case point. Arkhiver 10:26, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:00137.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:00137.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Bullshit vomit spewed out by Gavin Collins[edit]

I fail to see how a series comprised of six New York Times best-selling books is not notable enough to be on Wikipedia. Furthermore, what's up with this {{context}} template? "The introduction to this article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject." Here's the introduction to the "War of the Spider Queen" article (this message should be on that article's talk page, but some deletionist administrator censored it):

The War of the Spider Queen is a series of novels set in the Forgotten Realms setting, with six books overseen by R.A. Salvatore:

  1. Dissolution (2002) by Richard Lee Byers
  2. Insurrection (2002) by Thomas M. Reid
  3. Condemnation (2003) by Richard Baker
  4. Extinction (2004) by Lisa Smedman
  5. Annihilation (2004) by Philip Athans
  6. Resurrection (2005) by Paul S. Kemp

That is insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject? Do readers not know what a series is? Or a novel? Or a series of novels? Are they too stupid to follow hyperlinks? If Gavin is not educated enough to understand basic English, perhaps he should use a dictionary or not be editing Wikipedia at all.

To the afforementioned deletionist administrator who censored "Talk:War of the Spider Queen," know that I am not leaving this message here to harass anyone; rather, I am leaving this message here for the interests of the article (isn't this what article discussion pages are for?)

Something went wrong[edit]

Thwe article is unreadable, it is full of probably unwanted # symbols, fixing needed. 80.98.11.3 (talk) 09:57, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
