Bard Cadarn, you are invited to the Teahouse
I see that you use edit summaries, and that you've been reverted before, at least once with an edit summary that said "you are pushing an untenable POV based on unreliable sources. Stop it.". This is correct. The Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids would be acceptable as a source for its own article in some circumstances, but not for the articles where you are trying to use it. The same applies to druidcircle.org. You can read more about sources at WP:VERIFY and WP:RS. Please stick to academic sources for these articles. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 06:11, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
- I hate to be a pain, but that page was part of an undergraduate project - we don't even always use PhD theses, and certainly not undergraduate work. Another point is that if you read it carefully, it doesn't say that there were any Iron Age Druids. Have you read any of Hutton's works on Druids (he's a pagan). Dougweller (talk) 17:13, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
I think your work here has uncovered a problem - you were right in that it shouldn't have been a redirect to the definition of the shape, but it turns out that we already have Vates so I've redirected it there - I hope that's ok as it seems to cover what you want to cover, and you might not have known about Vates.

License tagging for File:Dinas Emrys.jpeg
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) 00:06, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
- Hi - you haven't given a fair use rationale so I've removed it from the article, and to be honest I'm not sure you can give one at least for this article. I don't think you looked far enough on the Pheryllt and have revised that section. You might want to also read . Dougweller (talk) 11:13, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Nomination of Dinas Affaraon for deletion
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dinas Affaraon until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Dougweller (talk) 16:13, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
- The redirection I performed was as a result of this discussion, which you participated in. This was an administrative action reflecting the consensus established there, so simply undoing it as you did is not appropriate. If you believe I erred in interpreting consensus I suggest you pursue deletion review, which is the correct way to challenge the outcome of an AFD discussion. If you were trying to work on the merger you can do that by accessing the page's history to locate material you wish to merge. Beeblebrox (talk) 01:38, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Your recent edits
Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:
- Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
- With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button ( or ) located above the edit window.
This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.
Orphaned non-free media (File:Dinas Emrys.jpeg)
Thanks for uploading File:Dinas Emrys.jpeg. 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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 16:16, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Dinas Affaraon 
I'm not sure what you thought you were doing, but your edit went against the AfD decision and I see it was reverted. Please leave the redirect as it is. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 05:33, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
I see you created a page for this despite only having one unreliable source. Please realise that you need at least two much better sources - such as books by academics - for a new article. I see above that you were told before that the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids does not qualify as a reliable source, and at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dinas Affaraon you were shown why interpreting Pheryllt this way is a fringe view. Please, next time you want to make a new page, line up better sources first. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:36, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Silver Branch, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tara (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Disputed non-free use rationale for File:The Morrigan by Laura Cameron.jpg
Thank you for uploading File:The Morrigan by Laura Cameron.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.
If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 10:48, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to introduce inappropriate pages to Wikipedia, as you did at Lots of Articles, you may be blocked from editing. If you need guidance on how to create appropriate pages, try using the Article Wizard. Stop uploading images that are clear violations of the artists' copyright.
You have uploaded a slew of non-free images, to which you do not hold the copyright. The fact some of these images have also been posted on blogs doesn't mean those content-stealers had permission, either.
The non-free rationale you have added to these images does not apply: the images are not photographs of a person, or low-res scans of a book cover or album cover; they are pieces of modern artwork and subject to copyright laws. They are also not "a depiction of the subject of the article" as you can't photograph mythological or ancient historical figures. - Slàn, Kathryn NicDhàna ♫♦♫ 21:02, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
I see you have also uploaded a piece of clipart to Commons and claimed you hold the copyright to it. Even if you are "OCAL," who created Twisted Branch 2, or one of the other users who created derivative work based on it, this image was taken from clkr.com. While the site specifies: "in case you are the copyright holder you hereby release it under the latest version of the creative commons CC0 public domain dedication" it looks to me like your posting it on WP and claiming you hold the copyright is a violation of their T.O.S. The image has now been deleted. Please take the time to learn about Copyright issues, as this is a serious problem. - Slàn, Kathryn NicDhàna ♫♦♫ 22:33, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
To start, I claim the copyright to nothing and if anything what I added implies that then it is a mistake on my part. In terms of the picture from the Silver Branch article, I found the outline (colorless, mind) and did the coloring myself, utterly unaware of another's like work, as I have never heard of http://www.clker.com/clipart-purple-background-branch.html. As to the image that was on the Manannán mac Lir page, that went unchallenged for many weeks, so naturally I assumed it was OK to do like with other articles. Even now, I fail to see the issue with it. Understand, Kathryn NicDhàna, that lack of action is taken as a "yes, this may be done." I do not mean to be insulting, but that is how I see it, nor do I appreciate jumping to conclusions with false accusations. - User:Bard Cadarn
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Philip Pullman's chosen Coat of Arms - "A bird of the raven family with a diamond in her beak. This is the storyteller, storytellers always steal their stories, every story has been told before".jpg
A tag has been placed on File:Philip Pullman's chosen Coat of Arms - "A bird of the raven family with a diamond in her beak. This is the storyteller, storytellers always steal their stories, every story has been told before".jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.
If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 00:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
If you want to rename this page, you must move it, along with its talk page, not copy and paste the content. Otherwise you'll lose the history and attribution to it's authors. I've gone ahead and fixed this for you. Best — MusikAnimal talk 15:31, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

More Copyvios. This is a warning.
You've been warned about this before. It is against WP policy to upload copyright artwork to illustrate articles. It does not fall under free use. You've done this a lot in the past and were thoroughly warned. You created a lot of cleanup work for other editors; don't start up again. Diff: - CorbieV☊☼ 18:57, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
More hasty judgement. This my response.
Exactly what was the copyright, User:CorbieVreccan? I made it quite clear that it - and I assume you refer to the Brigid picture I uploaded - is used on so many different websites that counting them was an impossibility. And not once was the copyright listed. I only put down "not Fair Use" for safety's sake. Where, might I ask, did you find such clear proof that it is NOT Fair Use? After all, given its un-moderated free usage across the Internet, how could it be otherwise? As to these thorough warnings, as you put it, most were accusations aimed at a then new user still learning the ropes and my responses are still on this page if you care to look for them (look under the As If, heading). As to this Brigid picture though, WHERE WAS ITS COPYRIGHT? I could find no solid evidence of any, so I went against WP policy neither willfully nor wittingly. - User:Bard Cadarn
