Disambiguation link notification for July 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ivor van Heerden, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Army Corps of Engineers. 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.

Table on the Zika virus outbreak[edit]

Thanks for the table. I think a better title would be "Numbers of microcephaly cases" rather than just stating it in the footnote. Looks too much might it might be numbers of Zika fever cases. juanTamad (talk) 09:37, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

R. padi[edit]

Sorry, removed the pic again! That image was definitely not R padi. Looked more like the cabbage aphid (B. brassicae) I think! Not sure where you are looking for the images but if you want to give me a shout when you find some more I am happy to let you know whether they arr R. padi or not! Phil Northing (talk) 20:51, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

That's quite alright. I'm not doubting your qualifications. This page: commons:File:Rhopalosiphum.padi.-.lindsey.jpg said that it was Rhopalosiphum padi. And that image comes from this page, which again ids it as R. padi. Either way, I'd imagine it isn't a very representative picture. I'll remove it from the other language wikipedias as well as the wikidata entry. Brightgalrs (/braɪtˈɡæl.ərˌɛs/)[1] 20:58, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
Ha. And indeed the website gives a nice warning on accuracy. Brightgalrs (/braɪtˈɡæl.ərˌɛs/)[1] 20:59, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
Just looked at this in a bit more detail and it is possible that the picture from Lindsey is R. padi. The link here: http://influentialpoints.com/Gallery/Rhopalosiphum_aphids.htm#Rhopalosiphum_padi shows that on their primary host (Prunus padus) they are covered in the mealy wax that makes them look like the cabbage aphid. On grasses where they are more commonly found they don't have the waxy covering. Phil Northing (talk) 12:30, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg Will you please stay in touch with me if you make any progress clarifying policy on photographs of copyrighted 3D works? You asked about this on Commons. It comes up enough. I am interested in making paths and precedents for photos of sculptures to be released with free licensing. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:44, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

@Bluerasberry: I emailed CreativeCommons seeing if they would be interested in creating licenses for such cases. I got an "official" response from Sarah of their legal team. She pretty much said they aren't interested in such a narrow license and their existing licenses are already complicated enough as they are. It's a bit disappointing, I really thought they were the ones to do it because of how much this relates to digital copyright. Oh well. Brightgalrs (/braɪtˈɡæl.ərˌɛs/)[1] 19:57, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Brightgalrs The Wikipedia community discusses copyright much more than the Creative Commons community, and besides that, there are more practical cases to consider here. I am not surprised that their legal team said no. Creative Commons is actually a small organization. They operate on a few million dollars per year and plan far ahead about the projects they would take. Their resources get committed quickly.
It's not a legal answer, but I live in New York and there are some art museums here which are friendly to Wikipedia. Some of these museums own the copyrights to some of their sculptures, which is sort of unusual because most museums do not negotiate for copyright along with the sculptures they purchase. Beyond this, some museums have agreed to release photos of some of these sculptures and also some architectural projects.
I do not know quite what to request, but somehow, I would like to request them to release a photo in some way that sets a precedent for expected behavior in releasing copyright for sculptures. Probably the end situation that they would want is a release of particular photos that they provide, which do not make the sculpture itself free, and do not permit other people to take free photos, but make the photos that they provide free 2D representations of a non-free 3D work.
One of the use cases of this would be a path for various artists to release promotional photos of public art in the US. As it happens, there are many artists whose work is displayed at parks in the United States, and who would release photos of their work, but who do not want to apply a free license to their sculpture or let anyone make free photographs beyond the ones they would provide. I wish that the licensing scheme could be described as a precedent for these sorts of releases.
If you have interest in writing this out somehow and providing your own examples or cases of using a scheme, then I might be able to back up the policy with other media donations from a museum here. If a museum releases pictures, then it would get reviewed by their lawyer. That is not the same as a CC lawyer, but it means something, and is a model that could be copied. I would talk more either on wiki or by email, or by phone or video following email if you liked. I do not think this is an easy situation but it is interesting and I do not think Wikipedia currently hosts CC content which manages this. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:11, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Plant morphology[edit]

It is fine to transfer content if the transfer is noted. However, it is not fine to remove an entire section of a key article and leave no summary in the article of that content.

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.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, List of Hillary Clinton presidential campaign political endorsements, 2016. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – List of Hillary Clinton presidential campaign endorsements, 2016. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at List of Hillary Clinton presidential campaign endorsements, 2016 – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, 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. 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, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia.

WikiProject Wikify: Current Backlog Reduction Plan[edit]

Hey, I noticed you marked yourself as a member of WikiProject Wikify and you are currently listed as active. I was wondering if you would be able to assist with our current backlog reduction plan. While traditional drives are more structured month-long sprints by WikiProject Wikify members, there is currently lacking activity within the project and in order to significantly reduce the incredible backlog, members are encouraged to review all articles marked with the Underlinked Template Message - {{underlinked}} - a list of which can be found here - to analyze the worthiness of the template message on the given article. Articles that have nothing to link or are have had wikilinks sufficiently added should have the template removed to clear the backlog and make it easier for editors to find articles in genuine need of wikification. This can be done by any editor; however, all editors should consider joining if they haven't done so already. Thank you!

Hello, from the Portals WikiProject...[edit]

You are invited to join the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system...

The Portals WikiProject was rebooted on April 17th, and is going strong. Fifty-nine editors have joined so far, with more joining daily.

We're having a blast, and excitement is high...

Our goal is to update, upgrade, and maintain portals.

In addition to working directly on portals, we are developing tools to make portals more dynamic (self-updating), and to make building and maintaining portals easier. We've finished two tools so far, with more to come. They are Template:Transclude lead excerpt and Template:Transclude random excerpt.

Discussions are underway about how to further upgrade portals, and what the portals of the future will be.

There are plenty of tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too).

With more to come.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

See ya at the WikiProject!

Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   23:41, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Thank you very much[edit]

The RfC discussion to eliminate portals was closed May 12, with the statement "There exists a strong consensus against deleting or even deprecating portals at this time." This was made possible because you and others came to the rescue. Thank you for speaking up.

By the way, the current issue of the Signpost features an article with interviews about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

I'd also like to let you know that the Portals WikiProject is working hard to make sure your support of portals was not in vain. Toward that end, we have been working diligently to innovate portals, while building, updating, upgrading, and maintaining them. The project has grown to 80 members so far, and has become a beehive of activity.

Our two main goals at this time are to automate portals (in terms of refreshing, rotating, and selecting content), and to develop a one-page model in order to make obsolete and eliminate most of the 150,000 subpages from the portal namespace by migrating their functions to the portal base pages, using technologies such as selective transclusion. Please feel free to join in on any of the many threads of development at the WikiProject's talk page, or just stop by to see how we are doing. If you have any questions about portals or portal development, that is the best place to ask them.

If you would like to keep abreast of developments on portals, keep in mind that the project's members receive updates on their talk pages. The updates are also posted here, for your convenience.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your support of portals, and we hope to make you proud of your decision. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   18:23, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:2011 ITU logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:2011 ITU logo.png. 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 section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:02, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:17, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
