November 2009[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. In one of your recent edits, you added links to an article which did not add content or meaning, or repeated the same link several times throughout the article. Please see Wikipedia's guideline on links to avoid overlinking. Thank you. Fribbulus Xax (talk) 17:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't read that, now I did... i didn't know about the overlinking. Now I'm gonna have it in mind. Thanks

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).

PLEASE NOTE:

Proposed deletion of Roxy Leech[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Roxy Leech has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable character

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Stifle (talk) 23:12, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Re: Treehouse of Horror XII[edit]

The sentence was removed because it was unsourced original research. If it can be reliably sourced then it should be readded in a separate cultural references section. Thanks, Gran2 09:09, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

What you need is a reliable source (such as a newspaper) which explicity mentions that that moment in the episode is a reference to Mad Eye Moody. Gran2 23:09, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Wow! Very difficult, I didn't write that it was a reference to Mad Eye Moody, I only changed "right" to "left" because it was the left eye of Homer that moved down... In this article (or this type of articles) ther are many references that are not properly referenced...

Replaceable fair use File:Frank quitely.gif[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Frank quitely.gif. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Hekerui (talk) 07:41, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Ref tags and punctuation[edit]

I just wanted to let you know for future editing that reference tags are normally placed after punctuation marks (periods, commas) per the Wikipedia Manual of Style. Thanks.-5- (talk) 03:14, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:CoverWolverine159.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:CoverWolverine159.jpg. 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.

Hi, How can I do with this image to prevent being deleted? It's an scan from the comic book, and is partial. Thanks for your help Arussom (talk) 19:52, 6 September 2010 (UTC) Maybe you can indicate me an example, I mean, a image that suit the "fair use policy"... Thanks again Arussom (talk) 20:01, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

re: Druu image[edit]

The biggest concern was which issue it was from. The original information you had didn't match up well since the image wasn't from the cover. That makes it hard to assume that the image was from that issue.

The clarification you provided is fine though. The only remaining question is if you actually scanned the image or found it else where.

File:RJBrande.jpg[edit]

When you uploaded this file, you saw the following:

Dear uploader: This media file, which you just uploaded, has been listed for speedy deletion because you indicated that only non-commercial or educational use of the file is allowed. Whilst it might seem reasonable to assume that such files can be freely used on Wikipedia, a non-profit website, this is in fact not the case.[1][2] Please do not upload any more files with this restriction on them, because content on Wikipedia needs to be compatible with the GNU Free Documentation License, which allows anyone to use it for any purpose, commercial or non-commercial. See our non-free content guidelines for more more information."

I'm going to make the assumption that you may have been looking for {{non-free comic}} as the license. If this is the case, leave me a note & I'll fix the image. You'll also need to add a non-free rationale after the image is restored. Skier Dude (talk 04:58, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:LightningLord.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:LightningLord.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) 16:06, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Re this edit - isn't it obvious that if Rhett is on the left, Link is on the right? – ukexpat (talk) 15:55, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, it is obvious. But is the way of putting it, I did not even write it at first, I just changed it because it was upside down. I think we can put the two of them or none but not to put just one. It is customary to put all if you put some.

Interwiki links from Wikdata[edit]

Hi, just to let you know that Wikidata does not support links to sections. Thus they need to stay on the articles. For example, I have had to re-add some links such as this. Please be sure to check that all the interwiki links have been moved across to Wikidata before removing them from Wikipedia. If you find one that links to a section (usually have a "#" in them) then it needs to remain, assuming it is correct. Thanks, and happy editing! Delsion23 (talk) 19:48, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Understood... but I thought that links to sections weren't permited; I mean, if there is no article for that matter, so don't put a link...

TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey Arussom

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 01:49, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards.

Bane[edit]

The powers listed are those that pertain to the character as main, identifiable powers, per consensus on the WikiProjects page. Interestingly, your argument is about a genius-level intellect, which is exactly one of the powers that we discussed as being abused. You can arguably list this for almost any character in the DC and Marvel Universes, as their characters are always shown as being brilliant and genius by some writer at some point in time. The problem is, this detracts from the characters who are known for this particular power (Braniac, Lex Luthor, Reed Richards, etc.). Our goal is to clean up these infoboxes with only those main powers the character is known for. A character's powers that are not their main powers, should appear in the appropriate section about their powers; not the infobox. Highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant is another abused power that was discussed, as nearly every comic book character has training in this regard. However, when it is critical to the character's background, as with Bane, then it should be listed. I did add "genius-level intellect" to Bane's power set in the infobox. I agree that he is a character who should have it as a main power, as he is known for his intelligence, along with his brute strength. JosephSpiral (talk) 21:54, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Your explanation is very accurate and precise... and let me very clear. Now I understand the goal... and I share it :)
