Your userpage[edit]

Please don't put copyrighted ("fair-use") images on your userpage. There are plenty of free things to choose from. ;-) Grandmasterka 06:01, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

2008,2009,2010,etc.[edit]

Wikipedia has a policy against stating planned future events as if they had already happened. It's called "wikipedia is not a crystal ball". For example, Miller Park was planned to open in a particular year. The construction disaster pushed it back for a year. That's the problem. And that's why I've been reverting those changes. The article already states (or should state) when the planned opening date is, but until it actually happens, it hasn't happened. Wahkeenah 17:24, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Eagles 35.GIF)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Eagles 35.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.

The Kingdome[edit]

In regards to copying and pasting the content of Kingdome to The Kingdome at 02:46, 8 February 2007 UTC:[1] [2]

Please do not move or rename a page by copying/pasting its content, because doing so destroys the edit history. (The GFDL requires acknowledgement of all contributors, and editors continue to hold copyright on their contributions unless they specifically give up this right. Hence it is required that edit histories be preserved for all major contributions until the normal copyright expires.) If you come across a cut-and-paste move that should be fixed by merging the page histories, please follow the instructions here to have an administrator repair it.

If you cannot rename a page, or you think that the renaming may be controversial, please go to Wikipedia:Requested moves and list it there.

Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 02:14, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Image resolution[edit]

I noticed that you reverted several resized images to high resolution versions. To comply with U.S. copyright laws, copyrighted images that we use here should be of low resolution. For more information on Wikipedia's policy on fair use images, please read Wikipedia:Fair use. ShadowHalo 18:41, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Faulk Blue Pants.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Faulk Blue Pants.jpg. I noticed that 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, then 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, then 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-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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 21:21, 23 February 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Angr 21:21, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Broncos_3.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Broncos_3.png. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Shibe Park rooftop bleachers[edit]

Hi,

It took me about 60 seconds to find this on Google Images. (shibe park bleachers) It is a larger version of your image, I believe, but it doesn't support some of the article text. You might want to change the image text to something like:

"Fans sitting on fences and roofs just to see the Athletics."

If you do use this image, please make sure that your Fair Use Rationale is added in addition to the licensing tag, like this one for a logo:


User:CollegeGameDayRocks! asserts that the limited use of this copyrighted image in Wikipedia articles directly pertaining to it is a fair use of the image, for the following reasons:

  • It is of the logo, helmet or uniform of an NFL team which retains the copyright.
  • It was obtained from the Sportslogos.net website which serves only to collect and archive these images.
  • No free-license alternatives are available that convey the same information.
  • The image is no larger, and of no higher quality, than required for its use in articles.
  • It is used in Wikipedia only for educational purposes and is not used for profit.
  • Its use on Wikipedia does not compete with the copyright holder.
  • Its use on Wikipedia is not expected to decrease the value of the copyright to its holder.

Hope that this helps.

Joe Lunardi[edit]

A tag has been placed on Joe Lunardi, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (below the existing db tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. PatricknoddyTALK (reply here)|HISTORY 22:52, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

re: Wikiproject NHL[edit]

I recommend you to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Hockey_League. Thanks CollegeGameDayRocks! 02:16, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey already is covering NHL-related articles. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 02:26, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
I posted a message to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ice Hockey about it. I am referring the issue to those who are more active there, since I am only semi-active there. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 02:32, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:PhiladelphiaEagles 100.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:PhiladelphiaEagles 100.gif. 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.BetacommandBot 04:36, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:SeattleSeahawks 1000.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:SeattleSeahawks 1000.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 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. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 07:21, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Faulk Blue Pants.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Faulk Blue Pants.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Mosmof (talk) 06:16, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Running gags on Pardon the Interruption[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Running gags on Pardon the Interruption. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Running gags on Pardon the Interruption. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:06, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
