Bands called "Prospect"[edit]

How rude of someone to replace the contents at Prospect (band)! Good solution to place it in a more specific page-name. I just moved the other one to a more specific page-name for it, and redid the main page as a list of the more specific ones. Hopefully now everyone can find whichever one they want.

Thanks! At first I wondered how the bots could made the mistake to add the wrong nationality-categorys to this article, because all the linked wikipedias showed to articles about the metal band (even the german one which does not exist anymore). But when I looked at the history, I noticed that at that time it still was correct. So I thought the band was not relevant enough to have its own article (that's the reason for the deletion in the german wiki), but since I didn't find any discussion about the change I gave it a try and created the old version at a new place. I'm happy it will stay. -- CecilK 18:29, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Amok.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Amok.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. 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. 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.

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 non-free media 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. Fpt Talk 11:44, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

That was a long time ago. All the other Sentenced music articles had pictures in it so I put one in this article too. If the rules have changed since then, just delete it. But on the other side somebody overwrote it anyway. Looks like food now. -- CecilK 13:48, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Nevermore pictures[edit]

Hey, found your pictures of Nevermore live at commons out of coincidence, and as Nevermore and their members has been in need for fair use pictures for quite awhile, so I added yours to Nevermore, Jeff Loomis and Warrel Dane. Hope you're satisfied with it, they were indeed helpful, thanks! Grinder0-0 23:21, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia was the only reason I took the camera with me, especially since my home-Wikipedia (the German one) doesn't accept fair use licences (only PD and that kind). -- CecilK 07:35, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Missing pic[edit]

Are you telling me it's working OK? Is the problem at this end? Amandajm 16:18, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I can see both pictures (ok, not really, because I deleted the duplicate). I'm not sure if the problem is on your side. There was a server problem in the last days. The last message from the developers was that it is solved but maybe there are still problems. Have you tried the purge-function? -- CecilK 16:23, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I just took another look and it's fine thank you! Amandajm 16:24, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Löschung meines Benutzerkonots[edit]

Hallo, ich kann mich aber noch anmelden und meine Disk. ist auch noch vorhanden. Ich bitte um die Sperrung des Benutzerkontos und all ihren Unterseiten. Links: [1] [2] [Benutzer Diskussion:Nérostrateur/Archiv] Liebe Grüße, --Nérostrateur (talk) 15:32, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Eine völlige Sperre ist technisch nicht machbar. Mir wurde sogar grade auf Commons erklärt, dass "wir" (damit meint der kritisierende Admin sich selbst) Sperren auf Benutzerwunsch nicht durchführen. Für eine globale Benutzerkontensperre (also das, was du momentan auf de. und Commons hast) müsstest du dich an einen Steward wenden, aber selbst dann bist du noch nicht ganz gesperrt. Dich einloggen und deine Benutzerseite bearbeiten wirst du immer können. Einzige ev. Lösung: ändere das Passwort auf etwas, das du dir nicht merken kannst und lösche die Emailadresse, damit du sie dir nicht mehr zuschicken lassen kannst. -- Cecil (talk) 15:51, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Danke für den Hinweis. Aber die beiden Archive könntest du doch löschen? lg--Nérostrateur (talk) 16:04, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Ich hab sie gesperrt. Ich würde bevorzugen sie aus Gründen der Nachvollziehbarkeit nicht zu löschen (da gibts AFAIK auch eine Regel, das zwar Benutzerseiten gelöscht werden können, aber nicht Benutzerdiskussionsseiten, kann aber sein, dass es die nur auf Commons gibt und nicht auf de). Angesichts des ganzen Wirbels, den deine Sperre auf Commons gerade verursacht, bitte ich dich, einen anderen Admin um die Löschung zu fragen, wenn du sie unbedingt haben willst. -- Cecil (talk) 16:15, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Good afternoon[edit]

Hello Cecil: Thanks for your concerns regarding the image.

I had assumed when loaded the pictures that the statement, "photo by Einar Einarsson Kvaran, aka Carptrash 18:34, 14 July 2006 (UTC)," would be enough. Apparently not. In any case there is a whole school of wikicopyright police that feel that any image of a work of sculpture, at least in the US of A, belongs to the artist, or in this case, since he is dead, his heirs. I started the article the day that Luis Jiménez died and added the pictures shortly thereafter as my tribute to him. However, lest his heirs take umbrage and cause problems for you, me and wikipedia in general I shall remove my images, and they will join the several hundred, or so it seems, others that have been so displaced. Life is supposed to be interesting. Einar, aka Carptrash (talk) 20:37, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Problem is: many people don't know about Freedom of panorama. They see your images, see a free licence and use the images. And then they could be the ones who will get the problems, which then will damage the reputation of Wikipedia. -- Cecil (talk) 21:04, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, well this is why the pictures are gone. One of the reasons. Carptrash (talk) 01:34, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

2009 Vidocq Revisions[edit]

I noticed all of the great work you did in updating the Vidocq page for the English Wikipedia. I think you mentioned that you were translating some of your work from the German Wikipedia page on Vidocq. I had a question concerning one of your additions, as I would like to track down the source of the information. Could you include the source for the information in "The Sûreté (1811-1832)" section? I am particularly interested in the source for the following statement: "When Vidocq delivered a few useful tips which helped to solve a burglary, the new Police Prefect Henri Gisquet appointed him again chef of the Sûreté." Kmecholsky (talk) 22:07, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

I'll check when I get home, but I was most likely from James Mortons book (The first detective. The life and revolutionary times of Vidocq; criminal, spy and private eye) as this was my primary source, especially for the years after the end of the autobiography. Stead and Savant books were used mostly for double-checking especially if Morton referred to them. -- Cecil (talk) 07:10, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot. Tonight, promise. I wrote me a note. -- Cecil (talk) 04:32, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! I appreciate this effort. -- kmecholsky — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kmecholsky (talkcontribs) 17:05, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
