Speedy deletion of Katharine McMahon[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Katharine McMahon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Katharine McMahon[edit]

Hi. I wonder if I could ask why you've deleted my article on the author, Katharine McMahon? It says "Katharine McMahon" ‎ (CSD G12: Blatant copyright infringement www.katharinemcmahon.com/katharine_mcmahon_website_005.htm) But I wrote/created the web site, it is all my own work. I wonder if you can tell me what proof you would like me to provide to show you that I am the author of katharinemcmahon.com? You could go to the site and email me? I'm a bit disappointed as I read all the notes very carefully and I've still messed up....

To quote Wiki "If you prosecute and judge people because they are ignorant of our policies and guidelines, you are in fact violating our policies and guidelines!" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Don%27t_bite_the_newbies#Ignorantia_juris_may_excuse . --Belinda Roussel (talk) 13:13, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Belinda! I'm sorry you feel I was persecuting you or something - I did not mean to do that.
Whether or not you created "KatharineMcMahon.com" is not really the point. The point is fairly obscure - WP:CP has the specific information - but the overview is that copying text from another site onto Wikipedia is frowned upon, specifically for copyright reasons. If you would like to use that text anyway, WP:CP gives you information on how to do that. Or you can re-write the info and put it on Wikipedia. In all honesty, I would recommend the latter course of action. The text you have on your website is beautiful, flattering, and highly complimentary, but very unlike an encyclopedia entry :) Perhaps you could review some of the articles listed in Category:British writers for how other entries are written?
And again - I'm sorry if you feel I was in any way harassing you. If I can help with anything else, please let me know. -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 15:40, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Ah - I understand - that would be .. disheartening at best!
A couple suggestions: WP:FIRST is good, and I find it very helpful to start articles in my own userspace, where I can find sources, clean it up, even get other people to review it before I put it out there for the wolves to descend upon :)
Hope that helps - and happy editing!!! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 17:58, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:68547 mcmahon katharine.gif[edit]

Icon delete.svg

A tag has been placed on File:68547 mcmahon katharine.gif requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

File permission problem with File:Katharine McMahon.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Katharine McMahon.gif. 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 the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Peripitus (Talk) 21:16, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Kate photo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Kate photo.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.
