London meet is TUESDAY 9th, not Wednesday 10th![edit]

Update: Jimbo got his days of the week confused. This is now happening TUESDAY 9th, same place. You may care to sign up again or not - David Gerard 10:44, 8 January 2007 (UTC)


It's just that I was upset that Jcsoccer91 has been adding people on the birthday list on 1991 that doesn't have a Wikipedia article with the words that sound like a foul language. So I just assumed that it's vandalism so I reverted the page, but within minutes after I reverted the page 1991, Jcsoccer91 has redone putting the same person on the birthday list on 1991 that doesn't have a Wikipedia article. In addition, Jcsoccer91 has also written "Quit deleting my post on 1991 or ill kick ur ass loser. do u like spend all ur time on wikipedia? get a life" on my talk page. (Amos Han 23:53, 10 January 2007 (UTC))

It's just that when users vandalize pages, then other readers can get very confused. That's the reason for not vandalizing and reverting vandalism. By the way, how did you know that I am new to Wikipedia? Amos Han 01:16, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

When I saw Jcsoccer91's contribution, it seemed like vandalism since he put the words "American Badass" on it. Amos Han 01:56, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Miguel Ángel Fernández Ordóñez[edit]

You deleted my article on MA Fernández Ordóñez saying he's not notable. I believe he IS notable since he's the current Governor of the Bank of Spain. I don't understand why that article was even put under "speedy deletion"?!? Please comment if there's some way to revert the deletion of the article. --RiseRover|talk 07:51, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

In the meanwhile I have created the article again. Please comment if you have any problem with this. --RiseRover|talk 08:10, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Licence for Image:4337995 5b04ba99e5.jpg[edit]

Hi, I have some concerns about the copyright licencing of Image:4337995 5b04ba99e5.jpg, which you uploaded. Please see the image's talk page for the details. Thanks. -- AJR | Talk 23:23, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

I have also noticed that you uploaded Image:196723404 792b728b62.jpg as CC-BY 2.0, while on the Flickr source page it is listed as noncommercial use only. -- AJR | Talk 23:29, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Both of these two images are used for noncommercial purpose, Wikipedia shouldn't use them for commercial purpose. Miaers 23:32, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

That Wikipedia itself is noncommercial is irrelevent, per Wikipedia:Image use policy#Free licenses, noncommercial use only licences are not free enough for Wikipedia's use, since such licences restrict the ability of those who reuse Wikipedia content to do so commercially, and there are many who do so, see Wikipedia:Mirrors and forks, and also restricts possible fundraising projects such as selling DVD editions of Wikipedia. Also, if the photographer (copyright holder) has said noncommercial use only, you cannot change the licence to remove this term, as you have asserted by using the {{cc-by-2.0}} tag on these images. -- AJR | Talk 23:45, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

There are numerous all copyright reserved images on Wikipedia for fair use purpose. Not all images in Wikipedia are free licenses. Those who copy these non-commercial purpose image for commercial uses are violating copyright, not me. Miaers 23:50, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes, there are many examples of images used under the doctrine of fair use, which provides a number of exceptions to copyright; all images in Wikipedia must either be under a free licence or fall within the rules of fair use. While you are technically correct that "those who copy these non-commercial purpose image for commercial uses are violating copyright", we wish to make it easy for people to re-use Wikipedia content, including commercially, and by uploading images which are not either under a free licence or subject to a valid fair use claim, you are violating Wikipedia policies. And, by claiming (va the copyright tags) that the images are licenced under the Creative Commons Attribution licence rather than the Attribution-Noncommercial or Attribution-Noncommercial-Noderivitaves licences, you probably are violating the photographers' copyrights. I have changed the tags on the image pages to reflect the licenses stated on Flickr; notice that the tags {{cc-by-nc-nd-2.0}} and {{cc-by-nc-2.0}} both point to a speedy deletion notice, reflecting the fact that these images under these licences are not accepted on Wikipedia. -- AJR | Talk 00:05, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

You'd better check the source. It is not a licensed copyright. Miaers 00:09, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

The Flickr pages that you linked from the two image pages in question both show that the Flickr users who uploaded those images to Flickr (and, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary should be assumed to be the photographers and copyright holders) have chosen to make those photos available under specific Creative Commons licences, which is why the phrase Some rights reserved is shown on the Flickr pages. These CC licenses are copyright licenses, however they are licenses that are not acceptable for Wikipedia content since they contain restrictions of commercial use (and in one case ban the creation of deriviate works.) -- AJR | Talk 00:16, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

There is no "All copyright reserved" for these photos. The license tabs I put for these photos match the license description for these photos. If there are problems, there will be administors to deal with them. Please don't change the license tabs I put for these photos. Miaers 04:21, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Both images in question are taken from Flickr, where Creative Commons "some rights reserved" terms have been stated by the photographers. The CC licenses chosen by these photographers include specific terms which are not reflected in the tags that you have used on the Wikipedia image pages:
In both cases, the tags that you have used ignore some of the restrictions imposed by the photographers, and in a way which affects the accptability of those images under Wikipedia policy. This is a problem, and I am changing the copyright tags on the image pages to reflect what is stated on Flickr, and to bring the situation to the attention of an administrator. -- AJR | Talk 22:00, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 02:14, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 17:57, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:SanPellegrinoBottle.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:SanPellegrinoBottle.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 18:39, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
