Image source[edit]

Hi, thanks for uploading the nice File:Aurora Borealis Poster.jpg collage. I saw you were asking for advice on how to do the sourcing. You were quite right that we can use such a collage if all its components are licensed under CC-BY-(SA) or public domain. But to be quite correct about it, CC-BY requires that we credit the authors, so the image description page should list them somewhere. I've started adding a little bit to the image page, showing one way how this can be done in a nice and neat manner, and perhaps you could continue that with the remaining images. Thanks, – Fut.Perf. 07:10, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and by the way, as I see nobody posted the standard welcome blurb to you yet, here goes: :-)

Please do not remove the Under Construction tag on Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky[edit]

I tend to be very direct in messages at times and sometimes people take that as anger or aggravation, so please bear with me and let me assure you that I am neither. However, although your removing this tag was well-intentioned, you were very premature in doing so. Revamping an article such as this one can sometimes take several weeks with occasional breaks in between, so a lack of activity for a few days is not unusual. I have also been ill, which has slowed work further since I am the main editor on this article. There is also an assessment on the Music section which has to be made before it can be reworked; another editor with whom I've worked in the past agreed yesterday to do this but, again, this will take time. Please remain patient. Jonyungk (talk) 04:30, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

(talk page lurker:) Well, to be fair, the template explicitly says "If this article or section has not been edited in several days, please remove this template" – which is exactly what 14jbella did. Can you be more specific about what the benefit of that template is if left for so many days? Fut.Perf. 06:39, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Per Fut.Perf, here's some quick but reasonably thorough info on Under Construction: The purpose of the tag is to let others know that an article is being rewritten, restructured, expanded or extensively copyedited. This notification becomes especially important when the article in question is an FA or has a large number of viewers per day; both of these are true with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Work can be extensive, take several weeks and vary on the amount of work being done at one time. Some sections will be heavily copywritten or edited, while others will need less work. The time needed to complete this work can also depend on how many editors are at work and other priorities such as job, illness and other factors. Not everyone can be a Wiki editor 24/7—we also have lives to lead outside Wikipedia. If you are not sure whether work has stopped on an article and the tag should be removed, the best thing is to first ask the editor doing the majority of work on the article. This information can be easily accessed in the article's edit history. If you don't get a response from that editor within, say, a week, then it might be alright to remove the tag. Otherwise, patience can be the best course.Jonyungk (talk) 15:10, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Oops, sorry, I thought you had put the link on the page. It had a where to buy link which would classify it as spam. I removed the reference from veal. Thanks for your message. Jim1138 (talk) 02:30, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

When it comes to Wikipedia, I think we are all in trouble! ;) BTW: I should have read your edit summary, it would have saved me grief! Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 02:36, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Your section on the GOCE drive page[edit]

Hello 14jbella. Another pianist, I see! I love the mezzo-nothing quote at the top of your user page. I hope you don't mind, but I went and edited your section on the drive page, because your second edit half an hour ago seems to have deleted the entry for Doctor Impossible, and you probably won't want to lose the word count for it. That was a very high-class copy edit, by the way, so I do hope you'll stick around and do some more. Oh, and when you're done with a copy edit, don't forget to remove the line that says:

{{copy edit|date=xxxxxx}}

at or near the top of the article. (I've done it for you at Doctor Impossible.) Best regards, --Stfg (talk) 22:22, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Haha, I removed it because I thought that it was a poor edit, and left the article ambiguous and confusing, and I wasn't sure how to fix it. That's also why I left the tag, but if you think it is worth keeping, I suppose you probably know better, as you have been around so much longer. Thanks! 14jbella (talk) 22:37, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
The article itself isn't brilliant, but that's not your fault -- you did everything a copy editor could be asked to do, and you made it a lot better. Reading it again, there's a non-sentence ("As Doctor Impossible plan failed and flees from Omega Man attacks") right at the end of the Biography section. It appears to have been added in this edit last July, and there are no variants in the history, so there's probably little hope of deducing what was meant from earlier versions of the article. Do you know the comics and understand what it's on about? If not, a possibility is to put a {{Clarify}} tag there and leave it at that. What do you think? --Stfg (talk) 00:35, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't know anything about these comics; I just stumbled upon the article. A clarify tag would probably be the best course of action. I will be happy to add it. 14jbella (talk) 04:15, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 5[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of dead comic book characters, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Manhunter (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.

Hi can you copyedit this list. The reviewers are mainly concerned with the prose quality. It's very short and shouldn't take much time. Vensatry (Ping me) 07:56, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
