Re: Guinea Grass, Guinea grass etc.[edit]

Hi. See my edit partly undoing one of your edits, which includes an explanation as to why. Thanks. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 12:36, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, OK, if you think it's better to have two pages differing only by one upper/lower letter. I had already created the page "Guinea Grass, Belize", so by reverting my change to "Guinea Grass" you made a redundant page. In any case, i've gone ahead and created "Guinea grass" (lower case) to redirect to Panicum maximum.Ben (talk) 23:35, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

OK, I changed it back into a redirect. Distinguishing by capitalization seems not uncommon in Wikipedia. Note that if you think an article is at a wrong title, please don't "copy and paste" it, as that can lose article edit history and create other problems. Use the "Move this page" function instead, and it's generally a good idea to leave a message on article talk pages for possible discussion a few days before moving. See Help:Moving a page for details of best practices for moving article titles. If you have any questions you can't find an answer to, feel free to ask. Hope this helps. Thanks for your work.

Articles for deletion nomination of Forbidden Warrior[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Forbidden Warrior, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Forbidden Warrior. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Orange Mike | Talk 05:28, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Hajarin[edit]

Hi Ben, sorry about the delay. I'm sorry but I took that photo many years ago and I can't remember details about it. I labeled it as Hajarin because that's what someone told me it was called at the time, but we just drove past it, I haven't actually been in the town and I don't know anything substantive on it. However, it does appear to be a real place, and a google search turns up some neat pictures of the buildings there, on Flickr and elsewhere. Unfortunately my brief search has not turned up the exact location, but I believe it's quite close to Sanaa (I could be wrong on that too though). Hope that helps, TastyCakes (talk) 20:14, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited The Serpent's Egg, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ride (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.

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 01:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hawaii edit-a-thon[edit]

Hello. I'm interested in attempting to put together an edit-a-thon for Hawaiian cultural topics something during the Makahiki festival perhaps around the month of November. The hope is that our lackluster coverage of Hawaiian mythology could be improved with help from the Bishop Museum, Hawaii Pacific University, and the Honolulu public library. I am in the process of making initial contacts with these organizations as well as Wikimedia DC's GLAM project. If this sounds like something you might be interested in participating in, or perhaps helping to coordinate, could you please add your name to 2014 Makahiki Edit-a-thon?--v/r - TP 21:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

File permission problem with File:Ahualoa aerial.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Ahualoa aerial.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 10:49, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
