Image source problem with Image:Von 120807.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Von 120807.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, 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, 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}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, 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 03:13, 9 December 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Caesura(t) 03:13, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Jevon Sims, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Jevon Sims.

January 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to Destiny's Child, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. This is especially important when dealing with biographies of living people, but applies to all Wikipedia articles. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are already familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources please take this opportunity to add your original reference to the article. Thank you. -- Donald Albury 12:04, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

If you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when:

  1. editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with;
  2. participating in deletion discussions about articles related to your organization or its competitors;
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam); and,

re: Michigan State alum[edit]

Mr. Weems,

Please do not misinterpret my edits to Michigan State University College of Law as a personal attack. You have not offended me nor are you on my "radar", and I am not targeting you personally. That page, like nearly every Wikipedia page that concerns MSU, is on my watchlist so that I may police them for vandalism, spam, and other disruptions. (This is not to imply that the edit in question is any of these; it is merely to explain how I noticed the edit at all.)

When your colleague chose to honor you by adding your name to the list of alumni, I took the time to run a Google search to find out more about you and attempt to establish your notability. From what I learned on your own website, I had no doubt about your prominence, experience, and public recognition; because of this, although your website does not suffice as a third-party reference per Wikipedia's policy on reliable sources, I decided leave the edit alone.

However, an anonymous IP editor (not I) removed your name with the edit summary "non-notable". Your colleague quickly re-inserted your name with effectively the same reference (your website), and at that point I chose to concur with the anonymous IP and remove it as "still nn" (wiki-shorthand for "non-notable").

A few months later, your name was added again, this time without any references at all. I removed it with the somewhat more explicative note, "Reverted good faith edits... Redlinked name and no external source, notability is not established", by which I meant "I know you mean well and are not trying to be disruptive (i.e., you're acting in good faith), but you need to provide some justification, in the form of reliable sources, for this person's inclusion in Wikipedia."

Less than an hour later, having reviewed Wikipedia policy on notability (which mainly addresses new articles, but is vague with regard to article contents), I reconsidered and actually put your name back into the list. I added a "fact" tag — [citation needed] — to say that a reliable source was still needed.

Again, a link to your website was subsequently added, replacing the "fact" tag; and soon another anonymous IP editor (again, not I) removed your name as non-notable.

When you added your own name to the list yesterday, unfortunately you ran afoul of Wikipedia policy on autobiography and conflict of interest. Adding information on oneself is "strongly discouraged", and smacks of self-promotion regardless of your actual intent.

In short, I have a great deal of respect for you and the work you have done, and I appreciate that you took the time to question me on these edits. In my opinion, your name should be on the College of Law alumni list, and with one or two third-party sources that mention you (and a friend to add it), hopefully the anonymous editors out there will leave it well enough alone.

Regards from a fellow MSU alumnus,

Atlanta edits[edit]

Your edits to the Atlanta page are considered vandalism.-- (talk) 13:51, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure if it's vandalism, Antavius, but you should not remove content from pages on Wikipedia, as you did here, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal has been reverted by another editor. Thank you. — Satori Son 13:54, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Problems with upload of File:Gaaaa.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Gaaaa.jpg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from, who created it, or provided a license tag. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, select the appropriate license tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the information to the image's description. If you can't find a suitable license tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Gaaaa.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Gaaaa.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you did not create this work entirely 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. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

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 also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 19:33, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
