Misspelling; Proposal to move image[edit]

This comment is in reference to your photograph of the statue of Saint Lucy in the Saint Leonard of Port Maurice church in Boston. Two notes:

1/ The image name (SantaLuccia.jpg) contains a typographical error which may hinder searches. Also, I believe images should use all lower case in naming; ie, santalucia.jpg

2/ The image page for this image includes a note indicating that the image is a candidate to be moved to wikimedia commons, the preferred home for media. I am interested in linking to this image for a project and am considering moving it.

April Fool's Day DYK[edit]

You made a comment on the Chili Bowl article using the term "gotcha". Someone else wrote an article about Gotcha Day, and they made a comment about how you used the term in your comment. I never heard of the term "Gotcha Day". Please comment on the Gotcha Day's hook. I hope you can understand this message because it was hard to write. Royalbroil 00:10, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

300 DYK & 400 DYK recognition[edit]

While the 200 DYK mark was something I did work toward, the beauty of the program is that each article is its own reward. When I see one of these articles was edited on my watchlist, taking another peek at one of my creations reminds me that I filled in a little hole in Wikipedia, adding information about something that never appeared here before. While the individual DYK notices of a latest entry being added to the main page are more than enough of a reward, I do appreciate your recognition, especially as it comes from someone who has a wide and fascinating portfolio of DYKs. Keep up the great work, which should be a reward of its own. Alansohn (talk) 14:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Wikiquette[edit]

Spiromoundsraccoon.gif

Thank you for your comment. I feel that the comment you object to was perfectly reasonable, given the circumstances, but you are entitled to your opinion. -- Scjessey (talk) 02:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

  • My point was that the circumstances don't matter and that the whole Wikipedia process breaks down when we talk to each other like that. It's not merely my opinion; civility is one of Wikipedia's core principles. At any rate, thanks for taking my message under consideration. --Boston (talk) 02:26, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Re:Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts[edit]

My bad - I didn't realize that this was a discussion in progress, not an IP vandalizing a page. - Fastily (talk) 00:44, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Mmmm, fried chicken![edit]

How did you know I was from the South, and missed some good greasy, artery-clogging, lip smacking, finger licking fried chicken? I appreciate the time you took to send me some "comfort food." Sometimes, it is the little acts of kindness that make all the unpaid, and often thankless hours of tedious work on Wikipedia worthwhile. So thanks again for taking the time to consider that people have feelings, and we aren't just mindless automatons. You are a great asset to Wikipedia, and I'm sorry that I acted like an ass during the discussions. Uncle G was not nearly as hard on me as I've been on myself all day for being such an ass during the discussions yesterday. I gave myself a time out, and have apologized to everyone I may have slighted during my emotional response yesterday. Thanks again! --OliverTwisted (Talk) (Stuff) 03:09, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm editing after posting my Wikibreak notice (bad form, I think!) I'll see if I can cut them out without making the flow of conversation seem odd. Best wishes...I hope April showers will bring May flowers where you live. --Boston (talk) 02:43, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

eggs[edit]

APK bought you some Easter eggs, but he had some mayonnaise that was about to go bad. He decided to make some deviled eggs instead. APK is really sorry about eating your Easter present, but promises to make it up to you on Cinco de Mayo. (although he's likely to drink your present) Happy Easter.

Celebrity Bainisteoir[edit]

Does the source call her an outspoken lesbian? I can't find it anywhere but if you can confirm it I will look again. She seems if anything to be a bit dismissive of the whole thing – as though she just wanted to get that bit out of the way and get on with her life... I'm also uncertain about the source and its reliability on the subject. It is four years old but it is also from a British newspaper. Her background appears to be a Catholic in Northern Ireland and then it could become overly political (although, and I'm possibly running away with things a bit, but is it best to rely only on this source for describing her personality/sexuality?) There must be something from Ireland as well to balance it out a bit... "outspoken" and "lesbian" does seem a bit much, especially for an encyclopedia – perhaps keep one and drop the other? Although I still can't figure out how she is outspoken about the subject just because she wrote a book... the ending is a bit eerie where she hopes they'll meet with zimmer frames when they're eighty... she didn't even make seventy... --candlewicke 19:35, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Gaelic football ball.jpg
  • Well, she's out as a lesbian for certain. And for an Irish celebrity, she's an "outspoken lesbian" but the article doesn't use that two word phrase specifically. As I said here, I think mentioning that she is a lesbian adds context and interest to her statement about working exclusively with men. Nevertheless, I was going to let this matter go as I was getting a sense that User:Snappy thought it sounded closed-minded (i.e. we don't say when someone is straight, so why mention that someone is gay?) I felt less sympathetic to User:Snappy's viewpoint after our discussion about including the pronunciation respelling "bwin-ish-TYOH-ir" (which I cited to a "Learning Irish" website) resulted in some very uncivil comments. Since for the past year, you haven't challenged the two points that User:Snappy wants changed, I thought you'd like to opine. Now, I'd advise you against engaging this editor in dialogue unless you're in the mood for someone to be rude to you without provocation! I posted a note about the latter issue at Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts; whether anyone will think it's worth comment is uncertain given the bigger fish we usually have to fry. PS - Do you say "Maundy Thursday" or "Holy Thursday"? Have you heard both terms in use? The re-naming discussion about this is over but I am curious. --Boston (talk) 19:54, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
  • And he did seem ever so nice when he requested I create his favourite television show a few months ago... :( yet from your conversation with him I can see where the username might have come from... a reaction anyone could fall victim to in reality but I didn't think it possible to such an extent what with "save page" and "show preview" options... and he's also been meddling with some of my templates... :-( grrr... :-) I know the colours on the Celebrity Bainisteoir one were horrendous but must all colours be removed from templates? I didn't think it was offensive to have some colours in my templates... I've noticed it in television shows from other countries... but whatever do you mean by "for an Irish celebrity"? Do non-Irish celebrites speak out more on the subject of lesbianism? I probably should have looked this article through in much more detail last year... but I suppose since I'm the only one who seems to be contributing to this area on a regular basis (as is the case with some other areas) I probably didn't find the time... I'm not even sure I'd pronounce it that way myself... especially the first syllable... but that must be down to the different dialects... --candlewicke 23:36, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
  • And "Holy" for me, thanks (I have heard of Maundy though but not to any great extent). --candlewicke 23:37, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
  • By "for an Irish celebrity" I was mostly referring to the size of the population. --Boston (talk) 23:53, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I'm afraid I don't see how the size of the population makes her outspoken. It must have gotten lost in translation... :-( --candlewicke 23:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Lol, it's okay. I mean we probably can't find 100 out lesbians from Ireland notable enough for Wikipedia while we could certainly find that many from a larger country like United States. --Boston (talk) 00:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I shall consider that a worthwhile challenge! Some day, maybe next month, maybe even a decade from now, I will return and dump the names of all one hundred of them across your talk page! ;) --candlewicke 00:18, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

In relation to User:Snappy, I believe you now to be even more correct with regard to his conduct. Said user approached me (quite politely it must be said) not long after the above and before long we seemed to be engaged in the most difficult of exchanges, where sparks were flying at everything from the elderly and disabled to my edits ("vomit") and intelligence. He has now presumably eternally banished me from his talk page (which perhaps goes some way to explaining the relative lack of activity there). My apologies and attempts to pass the whole affair off as not worth getting worked up about don't seem to have done anything to soften the mood either which, considering I did not even make the first approach, seems even more unusual. I am left wondering if this type of thing occurs on a regular basis and what fireworks would ensue if he encountered someone less willing to maintain dialogue... :O --candlewicke 13:11, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Boston[edit]

Actually it is appropriate to write about that in these articles. I notice the Sampan, for instance, wrote about when the health center planned to expand into Quincy, MA: [1] Because reliable sources cover this, it is appropriate to post this in Wikipedia. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:40, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Apologies, I partially misread what you wrote. We don't typically list street addresses; that and the content of the references threw me off when I read the change. I've restored the edit by moving your edit and the mention of Tufts Medical Center to a section on "Health care" within the Chinatown, Boston article. Best wishes, and again, I apologize for my careless edit. --Boston (talk) 16:53, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Thanks! - As another idea related to neighborhood articles, why not try to discuss which public schools are in certain neighborhoods. I'm not sure how much information Boston Public Schools releases, but it would be useful to explain which schools have ties to which neighborhoods. WhisperToMe (talk) 19:04, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
      • You can certainly include information about what school is physically located in what neighborhood. I won't discourage you from doing that. I just don't recommend trying to do this so that it has a practical benefit to readers as Wikipedia isn't intended to be a directory. You will never be able to comprehensively demonstrate what school serves what neighborhood as none of the Boston neighborhoods are officially defined (I can refer you to proof of this if you're skeptical). You might say "Joe Q. Doe Elementary school serves Dorchester and parts of South Boston and Roxbury" only to find people saying that their Roxbury street served by JQD is actually Dorchester since JQD serves it. Will they be correct or incorrect? Neither and/or both, because of the ambiguity of boundaries in Boston. Also, there are so many types of schools in Boston -- ordinary public, private non-parochial, private parochial, test schools, charter schools, etc. Also too, schools in Boston are always opening, closing, re-opening, moving, getting restructured and otherwise changing. With that in mind, the best you could do is take a "snap shot" of the situation and that's not very encyclopedic. My advice is joyfully forge ahead, but don't worry about consistency or completeness in bringing more info about Boston schools to Wikipedia articles about Boston neighborhoods. Include what you can, when you can, and have fun editing. --Boston (talk) 19:46, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
        • Yeah, it seems like the way Boston's zones are complicates things. In my work in Houston articles, school boundaries mostly tend to stay the same in the central neighborhoods, so usually the school info lasts a long time. Also HISD provides info on when schools opened and closed, so that helps make the sections less directory-like. WhisperToMe (talk) 19:49, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

In that case, make sure it emphasizes that it is the largest in terms of book volumes. When I first removed the statement it merely said "the largest municipal public library" - Largest in what? Now that we know this specifically, it helps to say "largest in terms of book volumes" as that is specific. WhisperToMe (talk) 21:54, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately the link cited in the paragraph died and there is no access date on it. Also nothing turns up on web.archive.org... WhisperToMe (talk) 22:02, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Anyhow please see how I added the schools to the East Boston and Dorchester articles - that way it is not directory-like and shows the histories of the communities. WhisperToMe (talk) 04:57, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

What, I can't have three?[edit]

Thanks for the encouraging words. That was the fun of it: Finding out that there were loads of sources out there that could be used for this. Facts stranger than fiction make great Wikipedia subjects. When the inevitable AfD comes, I hope you'll be on the barracades. -- Noroton (talk) 01:04, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Am I gonna get my third Oddball Barnstar for answering this? When two nouns form an adjective, it gets a hyphen in most stylebooks. That's pretty standard style in the U.S. and even the U.K., where a lot of people also drop the hyphen (barbaric practice). Check out Hyphen#Compound modifiers (which repeats the Brit barbarism, but at least only asserts that it's an alternate form). The hyphen is useful in this case to prevent the horrors that would result if a reader should glance at the article name and think the subject is about folding of any old paper in hotel toilets. That subject, for which I'd write a WP article if I could find sources for it, would be titled "Hotel-toilet paper folding". See the difference? This is how we uphold civilization. -- Noroton (talk) 02:26, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Your comments about my contributions to the Maundy Thursday debate are too kind. I am disappointed to see it fizzle like that; nobody seemed especially concerned about the POV issue, and instead simply advocated for what they were familiar with. MrArticleOne (talk) 04:54, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

HTOTTH[edit]

Excuse the delay, I was absent but am present at present. The answer to your question is no (I think). I don't think I've ever discussed barnstars with anyone before. But perhaps you've found a suitable person by now anyway. Good luck! --candlewicke 19:29, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

British Pakistanis[edit]

I've been watching the section removal go back and forth and perhaps it's best to leave it out. The way that section is currently written serves little purpose other than to give a rap sheet for British Pakistani terrorists. The lack of any discursive prose makes the section seem like it is intended to slight British Pakistanis. The topic of terrorism/extremists should be noted but a list of British Pakistani terrorists isn't really doing a good job of that. I'd be in favour of leaving it out until something more meaningful is written. The first paragraph in the main of this draft article is a better representation of what should be there. In fact maybe a modification of the first two paragraphs may suffice for the main article now? Sillyfolkboy (talk) 18:07, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Moors again[edit]

Hi Boston. We seem to have a problem with sockpuppeting on the Moors article again. There have been numerous IPs & recently-created accounts that have been repeatedly removing the same material from the article as the blocked accounts of before. Another editor has started a talk page discussion that logs what has transpired up until now. I also notice that one of the blocked accounts has removed the sock drawer you added to his talk page, which contains the details of the previous sock case. Cheers, Causteau (talk) 05:01, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Bazil Bainisteoir[edit]

Those two will be back on the Main Page soon at DYK. Or at least they ought to be... they're giving me ever so much grief about the size of my nomination so Baz may be removed for being irrelevant. CB also has "seasons" now, like all good reality television shows. I believe this is a first for Ireland on the English Wikipedia. I couldn't think of who better to notify of this occurrence than you, since if there were a WikiProject Celebrity Bainisteoir you would most probably be the main other member, from checking the history and fiddling around with my tool. Snappy is somehow in third place but we speak no more. That tool also seems to inform that I just made the 100th edit to the article. In other news, two of this season's bainisteoirí who were previously articleless have now been satisfied. Katherine Lynch and Andrea Roche are they. Just thought you'd like to know. :) Happy Mayday or Bealtaine as I believe it is, according to the Main Page. ;) --candlewicke 03:35, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

  • If I visit family at home this summer perhaps I'll finally see the show. --Boston (talk) 07:10, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:SandUpYerAss.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:SandUpYerAss.jpg. 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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 12:50, 8 May 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) 12:50, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of List of faux pas[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is List of faux pas. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of faux pas (third nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:18, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Kibbelgaarn body[edit]

Proposed deletion of Kibbelgaarn body[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Kibbelgaarn body has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The subject of this page seems to lack notability. It is briefly mentioned in what appears to be main article covering this general subject, Bog body. Alternatively, this article could be (and seems to be already) merged into the Bog body article if it is notable enough for that.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Linkfix2001 (talk) 21:29, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Boston Hotel Buckminster[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
A tag has been placed on Boston Hotel Buckminster requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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), 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. Jezhotwells (talk) 22:49, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Our Fathers (novel)[edit]

Hi. Wanted to drop you a note that when you want to relocate an article, you generally do so by moving it. Copying the contents and pasting them into another space, as you did with Our Fathers to Our Fathers (novel), is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history. If you move text in this way without providing a direct link to the original article, it is a licensing violation, as we must give credit to the copyright owners of our text (that is, our contributors). I'm fixing this one, but if there are any other articles that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen so that an administrator can put the history back with the article. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:42, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box.

AfD nomination of Awkward Animals[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Awkward Animals. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Awkward Animals. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:08, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Ghost Mantis Ootheca.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
A tag has been placed on File:Ghost Mantis Ootheca.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [2], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:
  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

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), 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 19:06, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Boston.

The license of your images at commons have been changed by an IP from PD to Cc-by-sa-3.0. There are two problems with that. 1) Images can not be relicensed. If the have been in PD they will always be in in PD 2) If an IP does the change, it might have been you but nobody knows. That is why the changes have been reverted. You can change the license to {{PD-user|Your Name}} if you want. Amada44  talk to me 14:28, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Looking for Wikipedia Ambassadors[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian in Boston. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at schools in Boston and Cambridge, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Boston and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.

If you're an experienced and active Wikipedian, you might be interested alternatively in becoming an Online Ambassador. The role of Online Ambassadors is to serve as mentors for students; it doesn't require any in-person outreach. Take a look at the Online Ambassador guidelines; the "mentorship process" describes roughly what will be expected of mentors in the coming term. If that's something you want to do, please apply!

You can find instructions for applying at WP:ONLINE. The main things we're looking for in Online Ambassadors are friendliness, regular activity (since mentorship is a commitment that spans several months), and the ability to give detailed, substantive feedback on articles (both short new articles, and longer, more mature ones).

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Statilia maculata 2.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Statilia maculata 2.jpg 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 {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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:Sleevegarter.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

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

If you created 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 in|article name}} 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.

Replaceable fair use File:Sajama Lines.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Sajama Lines.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 00:54, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:XIX.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:XIX.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 01:19, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Mabaso.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

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

If you created 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 in|article name}} 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.

Fair use rationale for File:Cushing-mosaic.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Cushing-mosaic.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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.

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.

Non-free rationale for File:Our-Lady-of-Camarin.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Our-Lady-of-Camarin.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 15:20, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Mantisinlace.jpg[edit]

⚠
Thanks for uploading File:Mantisinlace.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 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 04:43, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

File:Washington in Public Garden.jpg[edit]

Are you John Stephen Dwyer? If so do you mind if I add that to the photo, if not, I think it needs verified permission for use. I was planning to transfer it to Commons. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 22:50, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

No answer from the uploader, but I noticed User:Boston/Photos which says: "These are all photos I took myself and uploaded to Wikipedia." The photo you're asking about appears in the gallery, so I assume that User:Boston and John Stephen Dwyer are the same person. I assume that a clarification about this should be added to all images. --Stefan2 (talk) 22:44, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad that you found that. I would make the same assumptions. What do I need to do from here? Should we just add that they are one in the same on all of his images or do we need to wait for him to do it? -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 15:27, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I have added the statement "Own work according to User:Boston/Photos so it can be assumed that John Stephen Dwyer and User:Boston are the same person." to some images, but there might be more images needing a statement about this. I assume that this statement is enough. --Stefan2 (talk) 17:09, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

File source problem with File:John's.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:John's.jpg. 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. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 22:55, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Since you are the creator of this article, please comment at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Indie hip hop. Thank you. Dan56 (talk) 04:53, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Please don't. Dan56 is canvassing. Arcandam (talk) 06:06, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Really? I notify the person who created this article. Dan56 (talk) 17:49, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but you notified more than 1 person. 2 editors agree you have selected a questionable audience. Arcandam (talk) 18:14, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
He found the audience questionable b/c those editors don't edit often anymore. And that's true, I hadnt checked that beforehand. But so what. WP:AFD tells you to notify people in relevant Wikiprojects. Those editors have edited such articles. Why arent you taking anything I do in good faith? Dan56 (talk) 18:17, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
We will continue this conversation on your talkpage, not here. Arcandam (talk) 18:30, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Houseofscandal-UserBoxes.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

Speedy deletion nomination of Inkwell Foundation[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Inkwell Foundation 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 an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Sionk (talk) 11:00, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of London Metropolitan Orchestra[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on London Metropolitan Orchestra, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.
