Regarding edits made to Timpani[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Algocu! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule \bmembers\.tripod\.com\/.+, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. Please read Wikipedia's external links policy for more information. If the link was to an image, please read Wikipedia's image tutorial on how to use a more appropriate method to insert the image into an article. If your link was intended to promote a site you own, are affiliated with, or will make money from inclusion in Wikipedia, please note that inserting spam into Wikipedia is against policy.

Unspecified source for Image:CBS labs.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:CBS labs.jpg. 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, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:15, 17 February 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Angr 11:15, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up[edit]

I took care of the vandalism on Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, thanks for the info. Cheers, JCO312 23:29, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:CLD logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:CLD logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure 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 10:18, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Reorder.ogg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Reorder.ogg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Polly (Parrot) 14:53, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Geisler.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Geisler.jpg. 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) 01:06, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Tag corrected. algocu (talk) 15:32, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

John O'Neill (musician)[edit]

I notice you are effecting some edits on this article. Way back in 2007, I intended to pursue the validity of Mr. O'Neill as the probable 'owner' of the 'Whistling Jack Smith' story - sadly I got sidetracked and did not return. However, if you have not done so already, please read Talk:John O'Neill (musician), which explains the rationale behind my thinking back then. I do not think that O'Neill (bless him) was necessarily the driving force behind "Kaiser Bill's Batman". However, as you may have noticed, at lot of this seems to be wrapped up in legend, fiction, hear'say etc. As ever, Wikipedia:Reliable sources is perhaps the answer. Cheers,

Narcissistic personality disorder[edit]

This personality disorder is unrelated to pathological liar. People with a narcissistic personality disorder do not necessarily lie. Therefore, I have reverted your edit. —Mattisse (Talk) 01:17, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Understood -- then an elaboration at Pathological liar: Diagnosis in Psychology would be useful. algocu (talk) 16:59, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Analog passthrough[edit]

I decided your contribution, adding to that of Radiojon, makes a valuable addition to the Coupon-eligible converter box article. I'm surprised given the remote possibility they could have shut down the CECB program, that it wasn't in the article in the first place.

Now here's hoping they didn't decide that the court case wasn't that important earlier.Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 18:45, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Was that information in the source? It looks good.

I'm not certain the "no deadline" sentence is in the right place. Being there kind of de-emphasizes the idea. It was pretty prominent before I moved it.Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 16:21, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Pandb.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Pandb.jpg. 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 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 04:24, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey and 24th / 25th District[edit]

Regarding your recent edit to Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey, it is premature to state that it is now in the 25th Legislative District. Sure, if you voted today,you voted for representatives to the Senate and Assembly in the 25th district. But until the new legislature takes office in January 2012, you are in the 24th Legislative District. Steve Oroho is till your State Senator and Gary R. Chiusano and Alison Littell McHose still represent you in the Assembly until January. I have edited other articles to reflect that the change *will" take effect in January 2012 and will endeavor to do so for this one here. Alansohn (talk) 16:58, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to make the original update to the article and for catching my error.

File permission problem with File:Audimax.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Audimax.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 15:09, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

I'd be happy to do so -- but as the file has been deleted, I cannot provide the requested information. algocu (talk) 16:26, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

Lockheed A-12[edit]

Regarding edits to Lockheed A-12, specifically, naming of Ray Torick as LCO of fatal test crash. While it has been suggested that the identification of Torick in the article is inappropriate because he is a "non-notable person," we respectfully disagree. First, the test pilot gave his life while on duty. Second, the Lockheed A-12/M-21 program was canceled by program manager Kelly Johnson because of the loss. Third, Torick is mentioned by name in several books about the aircraft program. All of these factors make his identity notable.
