It's a pleasure. :-) I agree with the VfD nomination for that article, BTW. Elf-friend 19:41, 1 Aug 2004 (UTC)

The Humungous Image Tagging Project

Hi. You've helped with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Wiki Syntax, so I thought it worth alerting you to the latest and greatest of Wikipedia fixing project, User:Yann/Untagged Images, which is seeking to put copyright tags on all of the untagged images. There are probably, oh, thirty thousand or so to do (he said, reaching into the air for a large figure). But hey: they're images ... you'll get to see lots of random pretty pictures. That must be better than looking for at at and the the, non? You know you'll love it. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)

Article Licensing

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Wikipedia:Tambayan Philippines

Hello, you might be interested in helping flesh-out the Wikipedia:Tambayan Philippines page, so that we can centralize our efforts in improving Philippine-related articles. :) —seav 00:18, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)


Hi Bluemask - good to see you involved in the stub sorting. You're doing good work. But... it's worth noting that a lot of countries now have their own separate geo-stubs (most of them in the form country-geo-stub, e.g., Japan-geo-stub), and buildings get struct-stub rather than geo stub. There are too many to easily remember, I know, but it's worth trying out country-geo-stub in preview. If you could, it would help even more! Thanks Grutness|hello?

Just a note, one of your user subpages contains a link to Redshirt which has been changed to a disambig page. The information you probably were intending to link to is now at Redshirt (science fiction). --Dante Alighieri | Talk 11:06, Apr 24, 2005 (UTC)

Family Guy Wiki

Hi. I noticed that you have made several edits on the article "Family Guy". You may be interested to know that I have created a new Wiki that is exclusively about Family Guy. Knowing you are an experienced Wikipedian and Family Guy fan, I sure would appreciate your help contributing to the Family Guy Wiki. We started on May 9, so we are in the starting stages. To check it out, click here.

Thank you,

City/Municipality redirects:

Hi Bluemask, if you're going to continue making redirects, these pages should make it easier:

TheCoffee 16:34, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the list. It actually made things easier. -- Blue Mask|Talk 16:38, July 10, 2005 (UTC)
Heh, here's a way to make it even easier. You don't even need to copy the redirect text every time... for example, if you're doing redirects for Sultan Kudarat, just open up all the red links and paste #REDIRECT [[{{Subst:PAGENAME}}, Sultan Kudarat]] into all of them. :) TheCoffee 16:35, 11 July 2005 (UTC)


Salamat sa iyong pagboboto sa akin!--Jondel 06:58, 3 August 2005 (UTC)


Congratulations on your award. It is well deserved. Please feel free to tidy it up a bit.--Jondel 02:26, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

Japanese strategic planning for the Pacific (1905-1940) (cleanup)

I think reverting to an earlier edit of the article would solve most of the problems it has.

See: Talk:Japanese strategic planning for the Pacific (1905-1940)

Let me know what you think.

I made a suggestion in Talk:2005 Philippine electoral crisis. Being a wiki veteran, your comments are most welcome, even needed. --Noypi380 08:40, 7 September 2005 (UTC)

Klipspringer photo

Hey, Bluemask. I shot the picture myself, as well as one at waterbuck. I intended that they be copy-lefted; thought I'd clicked the right buttons when I uploaded, but apparently not. Anything I need to do? Marsden 21:57, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

Ilokano Wikipedia

Bluemask, can you please visit Requests for new languages and vote/support my request for a new Ilokano Wikipedia. I think it's about time and I have already started on the pages offline. Agyamanak! Oavcacananta 04:36, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

It's about time a talagan, kakabsat! Agyamankami kenka, Oavcacananta, iti panangirugim ken iti napateg nga awis! --Saluyot 07:20, 2 October 2005 (UTC)


Nakita ko na iniba mo yung mga translation sa Tagalog Babel. Salamat! Mas maganda ang mga translation mo! :-D Pwede kang gumawa ng isa para sa Ilokano? Gusto ko kasing maglagay ng level-2 Ilokano sa aking Babel chart eh. :-D Agyamanak! --Chris S. 08:30, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

Chris, gumawa na ako ng lahat ng mga level sa Ilokano Babel. Puwede nang gamitin. --Saluyot 13:38, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Philipine Featured Articles

Please visit Wikipedia talk:Tambayan Philippines/Featured articles and give your two centavos. Add your votes as well. Thanks =) --seav 13:39, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

José Rizal and Boracay, which you have voted for, have been selected for improvement by the Filipino Wikipedian community. Now we can start collaborating on improving these articles to Featured Article status. See Wikipedia talk:Tambayan Philippines/Featured articles. =) --seav 22:48, 20 November 2005 (UTC)


I award you this Working Man's Barnstar for your ongoing work with the tedious process of retagging unlicenced images, making the clean-up process so much easier! CLW 12:17, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

Image re-marking

Hi. I noticed you re-tagged Image:Widowspeak1024.jpg and Image:Gray Hairstreak.jpg as unsourced instead of unlicensed. Both of them have "Xerraire" on the images themselves which is the name of the graphic artist that created them. One of them even says so I figured it was safe to assume that's where they came from. Is that wrong thinking? —Wknight94 (talk) 11:52, 23 January 2006 (UTC)


Pls visit AfD Cyberservices, and see an article created by the same "user" - AfD Philippine Cyberservices Corridor. Pls encourage more well known users to make a vote. I have a suspicion that there will be a flood of posts from anons, and new users in those two AfDs. Thanks. Wikipedia is not for promotion. --Noypi380 11:59, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about that pic....anyway i've uploaded another image with the proper licensing for Guy Berryman. If there's still a problem then let me know. Cheers!--Victoria Eleanor 15:09, 8 March 2006 (UTC)


Image has been tagged - the picture was shot by a friend of mine over there, and he releases all rights to the image. Thanks!

Image tagging

Greetings! I noticed you tagged a lot of untagged images as GFDL-presumed. However, in some cases I'm really uncertain whether that's the proper tag: for example, this one from the text looks more like a "with permission", as it doesn't state anywhere that it is released under GFDL. It's best not to tag anything at all GFDL-presumed if you can contact the copyright holder or the uploader to clear it up; it's shaky ground to tag anything as GFDL-presumed when you're not reasonably sure, as a lot of people don't realize the difference between "permission to use" and "permission to release under GFDL". Thanks, Mindspillage (spill yours?) 03:10, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

I'll be careful next time. Maybe I'll re-tag all those I tagged with {{GFDL-presumed}} with {{no source}} or {{no license}}? What if the user stated that he or she took the picture? Do we have a boilerplate text to verify that to the user? (I'm not good in composing things, actually.) And since the image in question is unused maybe I'll tag that with {{Orphaned fairuse not replaced}}. -- bluemask 01:37, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

About my downloading image

Bluemask, I added the 1993 model of Toyota Corolla two months ago, I will not delete that image but it is show to other wikipedians. - ApprenticeFan - 05/13/2006 - 10:41 GMT

Musta! Na-tag na idi-delete ang image dahil hindi matukoy ang license nito. Kung ikaw mismo ang kumuha ng mga ito, maari mong ilagay ang mga tag na {{GFDL-self}} o {{cc-by-sa-2.5}} sa image description at ilagay mo rin na ikaw mismo ang kumuha ng mga litrato. Kung hindi, pakilagay na lang ang URL ng webpage na pinagkuhanan mo. Pasensya na dahil kailangan ito ng Wikipedia. -- bluemask 11:50, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

List of fraternities and sororities in the Philippines

The title of this page has been changed recently from just Fraternities and Sororities in the Philippines to Table of.. to List of... I'd like to find enough history information on Fraternities and Sororities in the Philippines beyond simply chartering dates for individual ones to restore it back to Fraternities and Sororities in the Philippines or make a separate page with that information. About the only additional history I have seen is the dates (in the last 10 years) of various "truces". Any idea where to go from here either in English or Tagalog? Naraht 16:06, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Carol Marcus

from a subpage

I thought I should let you know that I've taken the liberty of editing your user page - I moved the article about Star Trek's Dr. Carol Marcus (I'm going to make Carol Marcus a disambiguation page, and so I'm editing pages with links). Dr. Carol Marcus is now listed under D. Sorry if I got that wrong, but I figured you were listing pages alphabetically by article name rather than character name, or she'd have been under M.... TheMadBaron 19:35, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the page. You are right, I am arranging this page aphabetically according to article name. I am using a wordprocessor to arrange it for me when I dump in many Trek-related articles.
In the case of Dr. Carol Marcus, may I suggest that it should be moved to Carol Marcus (Star Trek) so that it would be consistent with other disambiguations. -- bluemask 02:34, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
You're right, of course. I've moved it again. TheMadBaron 06:16, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

Some images you tagged as {{GFDL-presumed}}

For your information: Image:SPL1.jpg, Image:Atrium2.jpg, and Image:SP02.jpg, which you tagged as {{GFDL-presumed}}, have been listed by me for speedy deletion, because they have no source. Although these might have been taken by the uploader himself, his history of proven text and image copyright violations makes this highly unlikely. 09:16, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

If that was the case, I have no problem on it. :) --bluemask (talk) 09:33, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Ipbiloxi.jpg

Please look in the file history all the information for the use of this image is there. It is not unsourced. Misterrick 08:20, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
