IIVeaa aka 1Veertje removed a whole table of data[edit]

Objection!!! Why removed the whole table of data in March Against Monsanto without giving people time to more complete it? I spent 7 hours till 04:00 to do it and I had to sleep. Do you really want wikipedia work for the best of all people? Or are you just doing it for your own rules? Do you have stock or funds or interested or know anyone related to Monsanto & alike??

Orphaned non-free media (File:NTR_logo_zwart.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:NTR_logo_zwart.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 10:32, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

uploaded this file to be used on the Dutch Wikipedia, but NL does not have a fair-use copyright law so was unable to place it on the article about the company. --IIVeaa (talk) 15:27, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

frequency of crying remark[edit]

Hi, I noticed that change too a while back, but I was not the one that made the edit. I think I just trusted the person who made the change for some reason, and that was a mistake! The edit was by at 16:30, 18 July 2011. And I wasn't pointing this out to be a jerk, just didn't want you thinking all the information I was putting was inaccurate!--MGualdoni (talk) 02:11, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Edit Warring at Opera Mobile[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Opera Mobile. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

In particular, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue edit warring, you may be blocked from editing. - SudoGhost 10:44, 28 July 2011 (UTC)


Hi, I didn't remove the information on Newborn's crying patterns (as in the paper you linked) - that was still in the article & I was happy with that. I removed the info about Eastern European, African and Asian babies crying more which quoted the Johnson & Johnson study. If you read that one, there was not a word in there to support what was being said. I'll remove it again - but will make sure the french / german pitch information remains.

Librivox template[edit]

I don't know if it's just one book but, after the changes you made, the librivox template no longer works for the SM U-28 (Germany) article.
-- Randy2063 (talk) 02:59, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

It's been a while since I edited that template, but I think my reasoning at the time went something along these lines: very popular works (like the declaration of independence, or the declaration of human rights, or Oscar Wildes stories) have had multiple recordings. They do show up in the search results but you won't know they even excisted if you link directly to one recording. The way the linking was done wasn't a very human think and needed some geeking out before you getting how that template was suppose to work. I did have some plans for encorporating both the highly advanced direct link to a single entry ánd still making it posible to link to search results, but my template tweaking skills aren't that advanced. --IIVeaa (talk) 06:37, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
You're right that the change needed to be made. Unfortunately, a lot of other links also need to be fixed.
The good news is that there aren't too many of them. I'll try to get to them later this afternoon if you can't.
What is the exact syntax?
-- Randy2063 (talk) 11:45, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
if you include {{librivox}} it takes the pagename for both the searchterm and the title of the link. parameter 1 is the searchterm, parameter 2 an alternative title.Parameter 3 gives you the option of including the name of the translator. --IIVeaa (talk) 13:05, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
I fixed them all. Had I known beforehand that only one or two still worked then I'd have reverted your changes and asked that you make a second template. I wish you had tested your changes on more than one or two articles.
I like the {{librivox}} option, although the problem with that is that a more accurate search usually requires both title and author.
It would be nice if using it with only one parameter would then get the title from the article title. Right now it seems to use the searchterm as the title.

Re: this edit Your revert is appropriate--the text that was added is unsourced, malformed, and possibly incorrect anyway. I simply reverted Cluebot before that because the anonymous IP definitely was not vandalizing. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 18:25, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Pass Cavallo[edit]

Pass Cavallo (Texas). Have another look at that. It looks to me like you were trying to upload an image of a map I don't think it worked. I think it has to be uploaded at Wikimedia Commons first. Maile66 (talk) 00:35, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi, it's a TIFF file, not all browsers are too happy about TIFF files, I'll try make a JPEG version of the same file. --IIVeaa (talk) 09:31, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Just had a look. It's terrific. Thanks for adding this. Maile66 (talk) 14:28, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
It's part of the National Archives and Records Administration that has recently been donated. You can help out by going over the files that still need categorisation --IIVeaa (talk) 14:33, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh, this could keep a person busy for a long time. Thanks for pointing me that direction. And by the way, I've never downloaded on Commons. How does one do what you just did - convert the TIFF to JPG? Maile66 (talk) 15:08, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
I download the file, open it in Photo Shop and save as changing the format to JPEG (drop down menu below where you name the thing). I think an open source piece of software like Paint.NET should work too --IIVeaa (talk) 15:18, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Mikko Hyppönen[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mikko Hyppönen has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

BLP. One only reference - non reliable source, no others found. Subject does not meet criteria at WP:GNG and WP:BLP

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Education in the Netherlands, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Frisian language (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Nomination of Phil Mason for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Phil Mason is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Phil Mason until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Robofish (talk) 20:25, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:YouTube video bloggers[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Category:YouTube video bloggers, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Otterathome (talk) 20:13, 23 June 2012 (UTC)


Some time ago, you suggested splitting this article. There is clear concensus to make the change. Would you be willing to make the change? Op47 (talk) 20:00, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

File:Antigoni Papadopoulou Photo.jpg[edit]

I removed the copyvio template you placed on this file because it's not a text copyright violation. If you have evidence supporting that it was copied from elsewhere, you should tag it with {{db-f9}}, but I should point out that the source you thought it was copied from was published in 2010, while the image was uploaded here in 2009. It certainly may be a copyright violation, but a clear and convincing source should be found if you wish to nominate for speedy deletion. If no such source can be found, you can always nominate it for deletion just based on your suspicions of copyright violation. Cheers! VernoWhitney (talk) 00:08, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

What is the difference?[edit]

You seem to know about gables. What is the difference between a Dordtse gable and a Crow-stepped gable? Both names are used in the categories here: [1]. If they are the same it is silly to use both categories. Better then to mention in Crow-stepped gable that there is another name. What is your opinion on this? --VanBurenen (talk) 16:29, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Dordtse gables used to be the final exam for a master mason in Dordrecht. It's a subtype of stepped gable, in that it usually features docorated ancors, has clover leaves in the arches above the windows --Vera (talk) 16:36, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Clément Janequin[edit]

I understand you supplied the image here - but I'm afraid this is definitely not Janequin (although the source of the image suggests it is): It is one of several paintings of Henry III of France - cf. the images in wikimedia commons category "Henry III of Poland and France". As I don't know a great deal about editing I'll leave it to you to make the necessary changes. . . NobbyHH (talk) 21:25, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

We have been through this a dozen times? So because people disagree on deleting a page we have to puppy-guard a wikipedia page/ Cmon man Infernal Demon (talk) 15:01, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

That is what it means for there to br consensus - Vera (talk) 15:05, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

So if there is not a consensus on an article the article stays up? Ok... By The way I am not a troll or to engage in a edit or flame war with you. i just firmly believe that page is not notable according to wikipedia's deletion standards. Infernal Demon (talk) 15:13, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

ok. I'm not even going to mark the page up for deletion for a 4th time. Fine. If this is your Alamo and you have to defend it go right ahead. And you can name call all you want and say I'm a troll. Infernal Demon (talk) 15:20, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Your question about Google Maps on Tool Labs[edit]

Hi Vera!

At Wikimania, you asked if it's okay to use Google Maps in tools on Tool Labs. I don't know if you follow either mail:labs-l or mail:toolserver-l. Here is a summary of the discussion: Bottomline: Give examples! What does the tool do exactly? Cheers, Silke WMDE (talk) 13:37, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi! My app has been approved to be published on Labs here. I've been having so trouble publishing my app there though, partially because of lack of time. I got SFTP working this weekend though!.
My app doesn't point users to Google Maps, it uses its API under the hood to gather geocoordinates to add these to lists of municipal monuments. I could put a checkbox at the starting page that confirms people agree to the terms of use? --Vera (talk) 13:49, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring to insert original research[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at List_of_unusual_deaths shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Please revert yourself [2]

In addition to edit warring, you are violating policy by reinserting content without providing appropriate sources. It is not allowed for you to make the interpretation that a building falling down is "unusual" and the source you are providing does not make that claim. You cannot make assertions about the intent of the publishers. Maybe they included it because it was "unusual", but it could just as easily be because it was a slow news day, or because they thought the picture was cool or because the victim was a relative of a friend and they wanted to pay homage. See the talk page of the article where the community has re-affirmed that the policies apply to the article content. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 00:59, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Den Haag (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Den Haag (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 23:05, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
