Encyclopedia cover[edit]

Who is the mecha in a hat on the Encyclopedia cover? --Error 14:01, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Could just be made it. I can't think it is of anything specifically from the volume but as it is huge... Easiest thing might be if you dropped Jess Nevins ro John Picacio a line if you really want to know but I'm suspecting it is as I said - with a big Steampunky feel to hook in people following up on the LoEG books. ;) (Emperor 14:25, 24 June 2007 (UTC))
It might be The Steam Man of the Prairies (an article I've just cleaned up a little while answering). AdamBMorgan 17:53, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
It's a typically wonderful Picacio-ian spin on the Steam Man of the Prairies, yes. JessNevins 10:55, 23 January, 2008. —Preceding comment was added at 16:55, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana cover.jpg 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Savage Vandalism[edit]

Is it not possible to stop this odd individual [] from continuing to waste people's time...? ntnon (talk) 01:56, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Simple answer: Yes. I notice no one has added a warning to the user page since the end of last year and that has to be done to keep this on everyone's radar, otherwise they could keep getting away with this.
However, it might be quicker to drop KOS a note - they have been on point for a lot of the warnings or blockings and seem the best person to take it to the full ban level as they know the case well. (Emperor (talk) 03:14, 3 April 2008 (UTC))
Looks like KOS might be on sabbatical... I've been noticing quite a lot of bored people causing pointless problems recently, although I suspect that's symptomatic of a widening watchlist, rather than an increased problem. Nothing as odd as this here, though... ntnon (talk) 03:19, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Neutrality tag[edit]

I've added the tag after finding and correcting several instances today of extremely hype-y, blurby prose that sounds as if it were written by the subject himself, and indeed, an editor with the subject's name worked on this article some years ago. Going through the entire article to excise this promotional material will take time; hence, the tag. --Tenebrae (talk) 05:58, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

And indeed, I've just seen that Jessnevins was indefinitely blocked years ago for disruptive editing — and most of whose edits were for this article. No wonder it sounds like it does. --Tenebrae (talk) 05:59, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

I'm new to this, so please bear with me. I was just able to determine within about 5 minutes that another user (The Emperor, IIRC) claims to have largely written this page. Jess Nevins, a noted librarian and author, was "indefinitely blocked" 7 years ago for "disruptively editing" pages, mostly this one about himself, and the block still stands? Is that right? Considering the notes under "Savage Vandalism," it seems...well, odd. Disclosure: I have known Jess online for approximately 20 years and am both a friend and an inveterate meddler.
