File source problem with File:Algeria Morocco Locator.svg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Algeria Morocco Locator.svg. 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. FASTILY 11:51, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

National varieties of English[edit]

Information icon In a recent edit to the page An Post, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to India, use Indian English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 21:05, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

@Ww2censor: I am very familiar with WP:ENGVAR, but it is not relevant to my edit to An Post. In all varieties of English, the verb form of the noun "licence" is spelt "license", hence "licensing" and "licensed". (American English differs in that the noun is also spelt "license", but that's not pertinent here.) See MOS:S and any non-American dictionary. Bazonka (talk) 21:51, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
I did not revert you, I just pointed out the reverting editor's viewpoint and despite what you say I tend to agree. ww2censor (talk) 22:49, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
@Ww2censor: you "tend to agree" despite all of the evidence to the contrary? Look, even An Post itself spells the verb with an S, so you haven't got a strong case at all. Bazonka (talk) 08:08, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Can you please tag these AWB edits with the "minor edit" flag? Without it, making the watchlists of editors in the areas you're targeting completely unreadable. The Drover's Wife (talk) 23:34, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

OK. Bazonka (talk) 08:53, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Bazonka, I am new to wiki and I don't like that mistake made on the Englebert H. page, (the cluebot accusation) Not true, I hope you reported it as all I did was put the ISBN numbers on and I didn't remove anything or make any changes. Will that false positive mess up my chances and am I flagged now for trouble? Is there anything I need to do to clear my user name? cydorsmCydorsm (talk) 14:29, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

@Cydorsm: Don't worry about it. ClueBot is an automatic program that sometimes gets it wrong. I flagged it as a false positive with the ClueBot system, so there'll be no black mark against your name. Let me know if you have any other questions - I'm happy to help. Bazonka (talk) 14:39, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Would you be able to look at the Richard G. Thomas page and resolve the COI/ it was not a COI/admission on that page maybe on another talk page, but it was removed Cydorsm (talk) 19:42, 14 June 2016 (UTC). thanks!

@Cydorsm: I'm not quite sure what the problem is. It's not WP:COI unless you are Richard G Thomas yourself. Using his biography as a source is covered by this guideline: WP:BLPSELFPUB, so should be OK as long as it's not too biased, and note that point 5 of the guideline states that the article must not be based primarily on this source. So if you can balance it with other sources then it should be OK, otherwise you might need to remove some of the content from the biography. Also, you will need to reference the biography properly each time you use it as a source - putting it in the bibliography is OK as well, but this does not serve as a reference to the article's content. Bazonka (talk) 19:47, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank You, that clears up the issue, and no I am not the subject in this article (I am female); I will take a look at those links for references again, however they are somewhat confusing, but again thanks for your help. Cydorsm (talk) 20:25, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

@Cydorsm: References aren't that difficult. Just click on the Cite button at the top of the edit window, pick the right template (probably Cite Book in your case) and a wizard will appear which will do most of the hard part for you. Bazonka (talk) 21:37, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Farm-Fresh eye.png Due to previous participation in a discussion on the subject, you are invited to join the discussion at Talk:Abkhazia#RfC on Infobox. CMD (talk) 12:55, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, but I have no strong opinion either way, so I'll stay out of it. Bazonka (talk) 10:05, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
