License tagging for File:Tenalbum.tiff[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Tenalbum.tiff. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 02:07, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of MetroPCS[edit]

Just a quick note to say that I removed the speedy deletion tag from this article. The article has some overly-promotional passages but mostly it's just neutral statements of fact, and the company is definitely notable. I believe the article is quite redeemable. Cheers,

db-spam tag on MetroPCS[edit]

Looking at the history, I see that over the last three weeks, you have added the {{db-spam}} tag four different times to the article MetroPCS (edit | visual edit | history) · Article talk (edit | history) · Watch. At least two of the users who have removed the speedy tag were admins. Also, the RFPP request that was filed to prevent removal of the speedy tag has been declined.

Continually re-adding the db-spam tag is disruptive. As mentioned at WP:DEL, "If there is a dispute over whether a page meets the criteria, the issue is typically taken to deletion discussions." The speedy is clearly disputed. Please, if you feel the article merits deletion, at this stage it is not appropriate to re-add the speedy tag - take it to WP:AFD. --- Barek (talk) - 23:23, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

MetroPCS[edit]

Hi AOC25, I am not clear why you would remove most of the sourced content from this article. Would you please consider discussing this on the article talk page? Of course there is no general rule against removing sourced content, but in this case you removed a large proportion of the article by word count. It seems odd to do that and leave an "expand" tag.

Cheers,

Fair use rationale for File:Pearl Jam album cover (Ten).tiff[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Pearl Jam album cover (Ten).tiff. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use 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.

Ref improve tags[edit]

You seem to be adding ref improve tags to articles which are generally well-referenced. Almost every article on WIkipedia can be improved by additional references, but the tag should be used on articles which are actually poorly referenced and need to be pointed out to other editors. Please take a little more care in adding this tag in the future. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:11, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm looking at your contributions, and I would say that you generally don't have a good idea when to tag an article - I've removed almost all the tags you've added as being inappropriate. I would suggest that you stop tagging articles until you have a better feel for when it is appropriate to do so. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:18, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
It appears that you've added a refimprove tag to almost every article you've edited. This is not appropriate, please stop. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:53, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
I generally attempt to add tags to brief unreferenced statements, but when there are entire sections that either had no references or relied on an amount not appropriate for their size, and multiples of these, I add {{Refimprove}} tags to them, and I usually try to make sure that the references already provided cannot suffice before doing this. I would say an alarming number of articles actually need these, including Citizen Kane and William Randolph Hearst. Please look at the references provided before removing the tags. I am not perfect and a few articles I added the tag to I do not doubt I should have looked at closer, but in these articles' cases, I think the tag is appropriate, particularly in the case of William Randolph Hearst. Thank you,

List of best-selling video games[edit]

Hi. Please stop (if only for now) changing the format of List of best-selling video games. I will explain in a moment (it is going to be a long post). Alphathon /'æl.f'æ.ðɒn/ (talk) 15:54, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Right, on to the explanation:

First, there is nothing wrong with putting everything in a table. The problem is that the tables being used are being assigned numbers - this constitutes synthesis since there is not a source that places them in that order. This is a problem already (with the ordered lists), but one that we are working on. The solution we have is a much more in depth table format that assigns a column for each of the name, sales, publisher, genre etc, but doesn't assign each game a number. It was discussed some time ago on the talk page, so it should be in the archive somewhere. I am part way through converting it on my userspace (User:Alphathon/List of best-selling video games) at the moment, but it's rather time consuming.

On a side note, the "top console games" lists are also going the way of the Dodo, since they are also OR.

Alphathon /'æl.f'æ.ðɒn/ (talk) 16:05, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

The reason numbers shouldn't be assigned is because be have no way of knowing if a game is, say, the number one seller (unless a source specifically lists to the top 10 sellers of all time for a platform or something). Listing them by number implies (even if it doesn't explicitly state) that the number corresponds to its position in the overall sales history for that platform, since not all numbers are up to date (necessarily) and there may be missing entries or errors. There are likely many more games on the PS3 for example that have sold more than 1 million copies, most of them probably multi-platform titles, so we have no idea where on the list they would go. Anyway, as I said before, assigning them numbers also constitutes synthesis, that is drawing a conclusion from a source or sources that the source(s) itself doesn't/themselves don't indicate. Alphathon /'æl.f'æ.ðɒn/ (talk) 16:36, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Bridgecs5desktop.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Bridgecs5desktop.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [2], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance 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. Armbrust Talk Contribs 16:14, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Autismribboncut.tiff[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Autismribboncut.tiff. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Cloudbound (talk) 00:49, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
