A tag has been placed on CapnAwesome, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because it is an article about a certain web site, blog, forum, or other community of web users that does not assert the importance or significance of that web location. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles, as well as notability guidelines for websites. Please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on Talk:CapnAwesome. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. StoptheDatabaseState 23:36, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Deletion discussion[edit]

Hi. As someone who's contributed to deletion discussions concerning micronation articles before, I wonder if you wouldn't mind taking a look at this one. --Gene_poole 00:38, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Burton-Earny-from-A-Day-At-The-Park.JPG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Burton-Earny-from-A-Day-At-The-Park.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Proposed Micronation Wikiproject[edit]

I've published a proposal to gauge the level of interest in setting up a micronation Wikiproject, which I thought might be of interest to you based on your past contributions.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Tennantdoc.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Tennantdoc.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Asenine (talk)(contribs) 20:37, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Because you are the most recent editor/reverter of the image, you are responsible. Asenine (talk)(contribs) 10:11, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Change license of File:Dodecahedron.gif ?[edit]

Hello. I'm an amateur video maker and I'd like to use this animation... Dodecahedron.gif

I understand you are the author and copyright holder. Would you be willing to change it to a CC-BY or even a CC-Zero/public-domain licence? I'd be willing to pay you for your trouble. --Billpg (talk) 07:13, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Are you sure you need a different license on the animation, to use it? It's already under CC-BY-SA, which means you can use it already (as long as whatever it's combined with is compatible with CC-BY-SA). Κσυπ Cyp   15:47, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Its the SA part. I often use clips that the copyright holder has only allowed me to use. Other times, I simply won't want to CC my own work. (PS, [1] That one is CC-BY-SA.) --Billpg (talk) 00:00, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
I saw the [2] video, it seems original. I'd rather not change it to CC-BY, but I'll give you permission to use it (and for you to release the combined result under CC-BY or something, if you want). Please let me know what you use it for. Κσυπ Cyp   17:28, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll switch my 'Dartford Tunnel' video to CC-BY.
I was thinking of using the spinning the dodecahedron as my motif. Like Alfred Hitchcock making a small cameo in each film, I would work in the dodecahedron in each one. If you change your mind, please ping me at my talk page. (If you will permit me to make an offer, I'd be willing to pay you 50 USD 80 USD in return for you for switching that file's license to CC0.) --Billpg (talk) 21:57, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
I'll let you use it as CC0, and instead of paying me, you may donate to Wikipedia instead, if you want. Κσυπ Cyp   15:36, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
