Fahrenhype 9/11

  • If you are opposed to deletion, please post a message on the relevant Wikipedia:Votes for Deletion subpage, so everyone can see. Also, you can sign messages on talk pages by typing ~~~~. Darksun 15:27, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Was Image:FahrenHype 911.jpg released under a GFDL-compatible license? If not, it will have to be listed on Wikipedia:Copyright problems (though this is independent of whether or not the article should be deleted.) --Ardonik.talk() 18:40, Sep 9, 2004 (UTC)
    • I received your message on my talk page. Have you described to the webmaster of fahrenhype911.com what releasing the image under the GFDL will mean? Anyone will be free to copy, edit, and include the image wherever they want for the rest of time, so long as they release their versions under the GFDL as well (that's what makes the GFDL so much better than the public domain, in my opinion.) Make sure he/she understands what he or she is getting into, and give him or her every opportunity to back out if they find our licensing terms to be disagreeable. We may have an opportunity to use the image under fair use provisions if they do back out, but you'll need to discuss that with the people over here that are more familiar with such issues. --Ardonik.talk() 19:07, Sep 9, 2004 (UTC)

Re: Query on deciding the title of a page

  • Nope, I don't see any problems with that...I would've done the same :). For the future, you might want to update the disambiguation page at the english title (don't worry- I already did it this time). It just makes it easier for people to find the movie they're looking for. Thanks for your message! -Frazzydee| 12:27, 17 Sep 2004 UTC
Don't worry- I created an entry on the disambiguation page. You can just proceed to edit Vozvrashcheniye. -[[User:Frazzydee|Frazzydee|]] 21:38, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you mean now. I've redirected The Return (movie) to Vozvrashcheniye, and erased the appropriate link on the disambig. page. Sorry I didn't see that before...I was somehow under the impression that the two movies were different :S. Everything should be working smoothly. -[[User:Frazzydee|Frazzydee|]] 03:59, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Territorial dispute

  • You removed to inclusion of Indonesia on the list based on the fact that the Territorial dispute article didn't list the dispute in Indonesia. Since there are indeed Indonesian territorial disputes, it might have made sense to simply add the information instead, as I went ahead and did. Jayjg 05:58, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I'm sorry if the comment seemed negative; I was simply asking you to look again because I had changed the article to address the problem you raised. Jayjg 06:16, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Hi, i replied to you about Nousukausi on my talk page. bbx 04:59, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)

About Image:Beslan siege rough plan.png

Hi, the link to Image:Beslan siege rough plan.png was Ok when I looked at it just now (here is the direct link). However I've replaced the one in the article with this better one (Image:Beslan_hostage_crisis_initial_plan.png from User: Underscore). -Wikibob | Talk 19:32, 2004 Oct 13 (UTC)

After your insistence that there is still a problem I rechecked and strangely enough there were extra null bytes in the PNG image header that causes Internet Explorer to refuse to load it. I've uploaded a corrected, and smaller, version (compressed using IrfanView). My IE can now view this image - I did not realise as I hardly use IE. It was fine in Mozilla on XP and on NT, also Ok using Opera on NT 4, and an old Netscape 4.79 on an HP. Thanks for the heads-up, I guess I will now play with the strange image to see exactly what the problem was. -Wikibob | Talk 17:26, 2004 Oct 14 (UTC)

Cats & Dogs

I'm afraid I can't help with your question; however, I've posted your question to Wikipedia:Help desk. Hopefully, you'll get a reply there. Best wishes, [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 15:35, Oct 28, 2004 (UTC)

Birth (film)

I've just created the article on Cameron Bright. If you feel like expanding the Birth article, I recommend you visit the links I put in for some extensive behind the scene info thingies. Especially the forum on his site can be helpful. :) [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 09:14, Nov 5, 2004 (UTC)

  • No problem. I'd been sitting on the page for ages, writing and fine tuning it. When you linked Cameron, I was afraid someone would beat me to writing the article, so I decided to go live with the info I had. I'll wait with putting in the controversial scene info in Birth. A post by Cam's mother on his website goes into even more detail, so I'll try to dig that up before I write anything more about the issue. [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 09:44, Nov 5, 2004 (UTC)

Opposition to Castro

  • Could you have another look at Opposition to Castro? I'm not sure what it was like when you looked at it (I gather is started out very POV), but at this point it looks to me like the nucleus of a good article. -- Jmabel | Talk 20:16, Nov 5, 2004 (UTC)
  • Drew will you reconsider your vote. Please check it out the article has improve a lot since you voted! Thanks and Regards SilentVoice 04:07, 6 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Drew, Thanks for your vote. I will not be offended either if you visit my homeland is a beutifull country and people are very nice and friendly and they deserve something better, I think we are doing more than just an encyclopedia here I think this helps us all of us to put our minds together and work towards something better in the world! Many Regards and Thanks again for your vote! SilentVoice 04:40, 6 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Vandalism

I've seen your user page has been vandalized twice in a short time. Maybe you should ask for a temporary protection. Do you deal a lot with vandals here? That might explain where it is coming from. [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 08:48, Nov 8, 2004 (UTC)

  • I don't see the need to protect my userpage for now. It's a knee-jerk reaction by the vandals since I reverted articles that they had just vandalised. Anyway, I appreciate your concern. --*drew 08:55, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hi *drew.

Re: 209.133.136.2

I don't know how to go about getting a user blocked, but I just reverted further changes by this user, this time replacement of words in the Mount Erebus article with random nonsense.

WikiTravel

Hi drew, Your http://en.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=Wikipedia:Projects_of_Wikimedia&diff=7608452&oldid=7028835 insertion was incorrect. WikiTravel is not a wikimedia project. -- 217.234.48.109 11:11, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for the info. After doing some research, I realise that it's not a wikimedia project. --*drew 13:56, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

IMDB links

Please note the existance of the Template:imdb name and Template:imdb title templates. Cburnett 05:30, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Originally posted on User talk:Cburnett: "Thanks for the advice. I have already used Template:imdb title on many movie articles for quite sometime but I will take note of Template:imdb name. By the way, there are many articles on actors which do not have proper IMDb name template". --*drew 07:06, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I've change hard IMDB (and IBDB if I see them) links to templates when I see them. I've already done several hundred in pursuing my current project. Cburnett 07:50, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Map ID

Hi *drew! Then I guess I will have to start translating them. Sounds like a challenge. Is it okay if I ask you for some help with them every now and then? Danny 10:07, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Hi, again! You may be interested in this. It is still small, but growing. Danny 11:08, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
Hi again! The Andijan map I made myself. The other maps are relatively easy. I take the CIA World Factbook map, save it as a PNG file, and edit it in Paint, which is part of Windows. I erase the names, add names in Indonesian (or any other language I am working in), and reinsert the original color. One thing I find is that the fonts that I use are generally clearer, though sometimes I have to clean them up a bit, especially if they are small. Danny 03:07, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
Tried it just now, but I can't reinsert the original colour. Guess I'll just concentrate on creating articles. :) --*drew 04:02, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
There is a tool above the pencil to take color and copy it. It looks a little like a pencil. If not, tell me which maps you want and I will work on them. BTW, could you translate a short article Etoumbi into Indonesian? It will be an important news story, and I want to be ready. Danny 12:00, 21 May 2005 (UTC)

Improving Indonesia-related articles

Hi. I'd like to talk with you about a personal appeal I am making to any and all persons who have edited Indonesia-related articles in the past, to start discussing ways we can collaborate to improve the quality of these articles (e.g. WikiProjects, Regional Notice Boards, and the like). If you wish to read the appeal, it's in Talk:Suharto. If you could get back to me with any feedback, please post it to my Talk Page.--Daniel June 28, 2005 19:12 (UTC)

About Asrat Woldeyes

Hi, the person who submitted this article for deletion has changed his mind in response to my argument to keep. Just to make things simple, could you take a look at what I wrote & see if you agree also? If so, just strike through your argument, & if a consensus emerges to keep the article, I'll rewrite the article to explain his notability. If you aren't convinced, you don't need to do anything unless you want to, & I'll make my actions based on the decision of the Admin who closes this nomination. Thanks. -- llywrch 22:45, 31 August 2005 (UTC)

PSI

Does the Socialist Party of Indonesia still exist? Our should it be changed to "was a political party in Indonesia"? --Soman 14:53, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

It participated in the 1955 parliamentary election, but it no longer exists now. So yeah, let's change the sentence to past tense. *drew 00:10, 25 September 2005 (UTC)
Apparently it was banned for having supported the 1958 PRRI coup. --Soman 00:11, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

One other thing, suppose someone used a derogatory term AS a User name, like "Troll", so calling someone who has this a troll may be a compliment. I've ran into people who LOVE trouble, saying things like,"Bring it on, I'll kick your (expletive) (expletive) <NO, this is'nt vandalisim, just stating a example > ", or, "You want some of this.......".Seen this also in some movies, like Aliens, in which a Marine is saying things, like,"Eat this !" to a alien bug - as he shoots it.Martial Law 06:41, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

blatant copyvio

I found another one very easily

Mean Creek was a blatant copyright violation by you. :-(

I'm sorry but this is unacceptable. We are going to have to go through all your contributions one by one and resolve this. You are banned from Wikipedia unless and until I am convinced you will not do this again.--Jimbo Wales 04:23, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

I have unblocked you since after reviewing your contributions both I and several other editors believe that you have indeed made mistakes including posting blatant copyvios in the past but since then you are trying to post only non copyrighted information, however due to the number of your contributions it is very hard to weed out all of the copyright violations that you may have posted in the past and any help you can give in identifying these would be of great help. JtkieferT | C | @ ---- 06:10, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
You were quite properly reblocked by Snowspinner, as Jtkeifer did not have the authority to unblock you. However, I have unblocked you just now based on essentially the same reasoning that Jtkiefer used. I encourage you to help us go through your old contributions and ferret out any remaining problems.--Jimbo Wales 16:19, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Bah

Well it looks like there's now a block/unblock war over you. I'm going to tell you this in case you don't know:

Do not copy text from IMDB or most other sources on (or off) the internet. Simply by being written down, such text is copyrighted, and is thus incompatible with Wikipedia.

If you have any queries, suggestions or problems with any of my actions as a bureaucrat then please leave me a note. -- Francs2000 22:06, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Rome nominated on WP:EUC

Some time ago, you voted for Rome on Wikipedia:Article Improvement Drive. I have now renominated it on the new Wikipedia:European Union collaboration. Consider voting for it if you are still interested.--Fenice 12:38, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Monas Jakarta.jpg

Warning sign
This image may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Monas Jakarta.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image 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 image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image 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 images, 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. Stan 16:06, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
