Minor league hockey player categories[edit]

Hi. I discovered the work you did recently to create categories for ECHL and UHL players. Bravo. I am working on populating some of them, slowly but surely. Good work on their creations; they were sorely needed! Skudrafan1 02:33, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Question for ya[edit]

I was thinking of creating a wiki project for High Schools and the conferences they are in. It be two seperate projects and noticed you have worked on conferences before. Since you are also in Michigan it helps even more as that is the state I like to be a showcase to see if we cant spread it around wikipedia. In anycase if you have any thoughts let me know. --Mihsfbstadium 01:39, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Category:Radio stations in Lansing, Michigan[edit]

While I'm all for the creation of this new category, there's one issue: when you added it to all the Lansing stations, you neglected to remove Category:Radio stations in Michigan. According to the category guidelines at WP:WPRS, radio stations are only to be listed in the most specific geographic category available.

Don't worry about it though -- I'm gonna fix them all right now.

An important letter[edit]

Dear roads editor,

You may have noticed some changes at WP:USRD lately. Some of them, like the cleanup templates and the stub templates, have been astounding and great. Unfortunately, others have been disturbing.

This has become evidenced by the departure of a few prominent editors at USRD, a few RFC's, and much fighting among USRD editors.

After the second RFC, many of us found the opportunity to take a step away from Wikipedia for a while--as a self-imposed wikibreak, or possibly on vacation.

The result of such introspection was that many of us were placing ourselves in a "walled garden" and on a self-imposed pedestal of authority over the roads department. Also, we were being hostile to a few users who were not agreeing with us.

In fact, IRC has been the main incarnation of this "walled garden." Decisions have been made there to conduct grudges and prejudices against a few valued USRD users with poor justification.

For this, we have come to apologize. We have come to ask your forgiveness.

In addition to this, we hope to work as one USRD team from now on and to encourage cooperation instead of the promotion of interests.

All users are welcome to collaborate on IRC, the newsletter, or anywhere else at USRD.

In the future, please feel free to approach us about any issues you may have.

Regards,

Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 17:07, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:CAACLogo.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

This is an automated message from a robot. You have recently uploaded Image:CAACLogo.jpg. 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.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

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 19:43, 16 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. If you believe you received this message in error, please notify the bot's owner.

USRD Inactivity check and news report[edit]

Hello, Cliffordzang. We had a few urgent matters to communicate to you:

  1. Please update your information at Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Participants, our new centralized participant list. Those who have not done so by October 20th will be removed.
  2. There are important discussions taking place at WT:USRD relating to whether WP:USRD, WP:HWY, or the state projects should hold the "power" in the roads projects.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Beaners Gourmet Coffee logo.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Beaners Gourmet Coffee logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media 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 '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.

Proposed deletion of Billy Sauer[edit]

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Billy Sauer, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Article fails WP:N, WP:ATHLETE, and WP:HOCKEY/PPF#NOTE.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. – Nurmsook! talk... 08:34, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
