The current Wikipedia naming convention is to simply state "Firstname Lastname". This is used on all articles which are up to standards. Please do not change any articles to use your suggested convention unless it is accepted as a standard on Wikipedia. -℘yrop (talk) 06:24, May 15, 2005 (UTC)
- For Japanese names, you should look at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (Japan-related articles)#Person names. To summarize: most articles for modern Japanese are in Given name Surname order. For historical figures, however, such as the haiku poet Matsuo Basho, the names will follow the Japanese tradition of Surname Given name (no comma). BlankVerse ∅ 11:42, 15 May 2005 (UTC)
- I will respect the current naming style since it has not come to consensus. However, I still strongly feel that clarity and consistency with surname comma given name is significantly better to provide greater improvement. Akosygin 04:35, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
Thank you for your work on broccoli, the company. I know that broccoli is credited for several anime as the production company, so I have added that to the broccoli page. - Squilibob 07:17, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
- It wasn't much, just wanted to return the contribution. Thank you for your contribution. -Akosygin 08:36, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
Page name for temperature articles
To avoid flip-flopping between 'degree Fahrenheit' and 'Fahrenheit' or 'degree Celsius' and 'Celsius', I propose that we have a discussion on which we want. I see you have contributed on units of measurement, please express your opinion at Talk:Units of measurement. Thanks. bobblewik 22:09, 12 February 2006 (UTC)
Image tagging for Image:Nebraska license.jpg
Thanks for uploading Image:Nebraska license.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.
For more information on using images, see the following pages:
Non-free use disputed for Image:LogoRO2.jpg
|This file may be deleted.|
Thanks for uploading Image:LogoRO2.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read carefully the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content and then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:15, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
Image:Animate.gif listed for deletion
An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:Animate.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. —PNG crusade bot (feedback) 22:43, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free media (Image:Animate.gif)
Thanks for uploading Image:Animate.gif. 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:29, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Gravity.gif
Thanks for uploading Image:Gravity.gif. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
- That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.
