I'm not sure I like it - it smacks of arrogance - but seems to be a fairly common practice, for the sake of readability, so from now on (June 18th, 2006), I shall respond to all future comments made on this page right here. Watch the page for replies.

Your view[edit]

Hi,

Please let me know if there is any further change in tone or content required in Chembai to better it. Thanks for your help.-- Kris ( talk | contribs) 17:22, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

The tone does seem to be hugely better, and the increased references are a good thing too. Some of the english still needs tidying up a little (as per the minor changes I made just now). I don't have the time to make or give a complete critique, but overall a vast improvement. Well done. Keep it up. Cain Mosni 11:22, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons image dispute[edit]

I noticed your question (from May 2006) about the Captain Scarlet image while tracking down previous edits made by a recent Cars vandal. The edit I tracked appears to be vandalism, but since the image it happened to remove was questioned, I left it out when I restored the other content. Since you had a concern about it, I thought I should let you know. I thought it would be best to leave the situation to those more involved with the article. -- Fru1tbat 21:57, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. I don't believe that was already 6 months ago! I do think the image is best discarded, though. Cain Mosni 00:55, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit]

Please give some examples of places where the tone can be improved. Thanks. ­ Kris (☎ talk | contribs) 13:21, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Gerry Anderson[edit]

You have an interest - note I have created a Category:Gerry Anderson to bring together all the related items that don't have their own categories - thus the existing Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet categories can be sub-categories of this one. -- Beardo 00:44, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Adastreia logo.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Adastreia logo.gif. 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.

Fair use rationale for Image:They_now_try_to_sell_meth.ogg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:They_now_try_to_sell_meth.ogg. 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. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

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

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 23:04, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:JOP_129_P12_w640.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:JOP_129_P12_w640.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image 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 the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 10:09, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:JOP logo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:JOP logo.png. 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.BetacommandBot (talk) 22:18, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:24, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

File:MSL6000-library.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to 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.

Disambiguation page style advice[edit]

Thank you for your edit to "Oyster (disambiguation)". However, as the notice displayed upon editing the page notes:-

This is a disambiguation page, for directing readers quickly to intended articles. For details, see the disambiguation page style guideline.
Some noteworthy differences from articles:
Generally only one navigable link (blue link) belongs in each bulleted entry.
The full article name should be visible; do not pipe entry names.
Entries are sentence fragments; do not end them with periods or other punctuation.

If you need more information on how disambiguation pages work, please read WP:MOSDAB or feel free to contact the usual channels for advice. Thank you for editing Wikipedia. Ubcule (talk) 09:41, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
