Re: Pokémon Demographics[edit]

First, thanks for contacting me instead of just reverting the pages.

I removed the "demographics" section from some of the articles for two reasons: first, because it's fairly crufty - knowing the exact number of NPC sprites in a given city adds nothing to a reader's comprehension of the article. Also, the sections were written from an in-universe perspective, which is not only generally unsuitable for Wikipedia, but gave the slightly absurd impression that, in the Pokémon world, a population of around 50 constitutes a bustling metropolis. It just doesn't read well. All that said, it is definitely a good idea to mention the relative size and population of each city (e.g. Saffron is larger than most cities, etc.) - just be careful not to go in-universe or use OR in that endeavor. ~e.o.t.d~ 18:28, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Silphco.png)[edit]

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

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

WP:POKE is doing some housecleaning[edit]

This notice is to inform you that because many people have added their names to Wikipedia:WikiProject Pokémon#Participants but do not seem to be active, all names are being deleted in an effort to find out who is still truly interested in the project. All you have to do is re-add your name if you'd still like to be considered a member of WP:POKE. Any questions, you can contact me on my talk page. -ΖαππερΝαππερ BabelAlexandria 17:31, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:100 2933.jpg[edit]

File:100 2933.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:ManassasCannons.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:ManassasCannons.jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 19:27, 6 August 2009 (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.
