Fiji, Fiji, Fiji[edit]

When Copyvio-ing a page, please add it to the corresponding page (as said in the template) In this case it is Wikipedia:Copyright_problems/2006_August_30/Articles. BTW, i think NASA material is public-domain, so it's not a copyvio. -- 20:27, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Hello, concerned anon! I flagged that article a copyvio on the 23rd, and thus you can find it on Wikipedia:Copyright_problems/2006_August_23/Articles. While material produced by an employee of the federal government in the course of his employment is indeed public domain, not everything on every NASA Web site is PD, and that text's copyright status should be verified by someone with more time than me. In any event, it made a very poor article to begin with, and should be rewritten entirely. Austin Hair 06:59, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

IRC cloak[edit]

Hi there, thanks for your help regarding my queries about a cloak earlier.

From WP:ICV it says:

  1. Registered your primary IRC nick. (This is also called the "master nick" and should be the one you plan to use most often.)
  2. Registered a second nick, and linked it to the main nick using the "link" command.
  3. Set an email address for your nick. (You may choose to hide this from public view for security.)

All three done.

If it's okay, I'd like a wikimedia/NSLE cloak.

Thanks for your help! – NSLE/Chacor (frwiki/commons) 06:09, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Change to Common.css[edit]

Per recent discussions, the way in which Persondata is viewed by Wikipedia editors has changed. In order to continue viewing Persondata in Wikipedia articles, please edit your user CSS file to display table.persondata rather than table.metadata. More specific instructions can be found on the Persondata page. --ShakingSpirittalk on behalf of Kaldari 00:41, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Austin Hair! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,894 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Jean Marcel Honoré - Find sources: "Jean Marcel Honoré" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 05:27, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia's tagline[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you participated in a 2005/2006 discussion and straw poll on whether or not the tagline at the top of all Wikipedia articles should be changed from "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" to "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit". I don't know if you're still interested in this issue or not, but this exact change has been proposed once again, this time at the Village pump, and there is currently a RFC (Request for Comment) where it is being discussed.

Dallas-area photo requests[edit]

Hey Austin! Do you do Dallas-area photo requests? If so, I have a few ideas. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:38, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

I totally would, except that I no longer live there—I'm in the Netherlands, now, and alas, I don't know any active DFW-area photographers. Sorry! Austin Hair 20:57, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Credo Reference Update & Survey (your opinion requested)[edit]

Credo Reference, who generously donated 400 free Credo 250 research accounts to Wikipedia editors over the past two years, has offered to expand the program to include 100 additional reference resources. Credo wants Wikipedia editors to select which resources they want most. So, we put together a quick survey to do that:

It also asks some basic questions about what you like about the Credo program and what you might want to improve.

At this time only the initial 400 editors have accounts, but even if you do not have an account, you still might want to weigh in on which resources would be most valuable for the community (for example, through WikiProject Resource Exchange).

Also, if you have an account but no longer want to use it, please leave me a note so another editor can take your spot.

If you have any other questions or comments, drop by my talk page or email me at Cheers! Ocaasi t | c 17:08, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Lemuel Cook.jpeg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Lemuel Cook.jpeg. 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, 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. 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 refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:18, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

File:Lemuel Cook.jpeg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 15:54, 17 July 2013 (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.
