Geiringer image[edit]

Hello CaritasUbi, I'm thinking writing to UC Santa Barbara Special Collections to get permission to use their web-posted image of Karl Geiringer. But I need to check first if you've already asked them. If you've haven't, I'll go ahead. Yours truly, Opus33 (talk) 22:33, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I've seen the picture (it would be perfect) and I've been trying to get in touch with them. I sent mail to the Head of the Department of Special Collections (see http://www.library.ucsb.edu/speccoll/support.html) and he responded but said he would have to forward the request to the manager of music-related items. I have not heard further. I sent the same request to the "webmaster feedback" page, but that's probably going nowhere. You're welcome to try - maybe snailmail would work better (?) Best regards, --CaritasUbi (talk) 01:09, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I just poked around further and found the contact page for the Department of Special Collections, Davidson Library, UCSB: http://www.library.ucsb.edu/speccoll/contact/units.html and I sent a permssion request to the first name under the "Performing Arts" department. Let's hope for the best.--CaritasUbi (talk) 01:24, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Another possibility - I wonder if his sons might have a photo the would be willing to donate? May be difficult to locate them - I have their names from the NY Times obituary, but no idea where they live.--CaritasUbi (talk) 01:24, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Managed to locate a relative on Facebook. He had no photos, but referred me to several valuable pages (see Talk:Karl Geiringer --CaritasUbi (talk) 08:05, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Hello CU, It looks like you're really on top of this and I will not initiate a parallel inquiry. Cheers, Opus33 (talk) 17:30, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
No, the UCSB people responded by email that it's not possible (they charge for photos and rarely own the copyright themselves). Dead end, I'm afraid.

Backlog[edit]

Hi CaritasUbi, what happened to your great idea sorting the old articles regarding topic rather than age? I'm doing a lot at the moment in the area June/July/August 2007 and it would appear 20% of them are stubs about Indian villages or American Congressmen anyway.--Kojozone (talk) 20:04, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

I know what you mean. I managed to copyedit one of them, but to be honest, it's hard to do a good job if you just don't care about the subject matter--CaritasUbi (talk) 23:47, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Mariya Zhukova (actress)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mariya Zhukova (actress) has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.


If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Xtzou (Talk) 00:37, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Yuri Kuznetsov (actor)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Yuri Kuznetsov (actor) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable actor. Only source is the IMDB, no third party sources demonstrating notability.

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. Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:22, 18 April 2010 (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'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. 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) 18:29, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Mariya Zhukova (actress)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mariya Zhukova (actress) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Actress with no notability to be found with only one role and no reliable references

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
