The Mode

Diamond-caution.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article The Mode, because another editor is suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of the page.

Replaceable fair use Image:FabrizioGiovanardi.jpg

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:FabrizioGiovanardi.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media 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 media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media 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 description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 17:42, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Midseason hockey updates

Per WP:Hockey Guidelines, statistics for active players are to only be updated at the end of a season, not during a season. Read more about this at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey/Player pages format. Thanks. --Michael Greiner 23:55, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:MarkProctor.jpg

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

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator 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.BetacommandBot (talk) 16:26, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey March 2008 Newsletter

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear Cs-wolves/Archive 3! You are receiving as you are a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey There's been many more new things going on at WP:HOCKEY, and I think this will help you to stay informed. Since the last newsletter sent out in October, there have been many new changes. I'm hoping to make this newsletter a bit more regular; Kaiser matias and Skudrafan1 asked for a new issue a week ago, but sadly, I've been a bit lazy and committed to other things hence this other delay. --Maxim(talk)

New recognized content
Wayne Gretzky; this picture is featured

By Maxim
There has been numerous new recognized content, so much that it's too time-consuming to sift through the "trophy cases" on WP:HOCKEY. Some interesting achievements:

Task forces

By Maxim

There was a new taskforce created within the WikiProject to deal with topics related to the Boston Bruins. It was originally founded as a separate WikiProject, but was quickly turned into a taskforce within WikiProject Ice Hockey. The list of participants is located here. Located at WP:BRUINS, the taskforce's goals are to make Boston Bruins and Bobby Orr featured articles. Good luck!

New Administrators

By Maxim
Since October, there have been three new admins promoted within the project:

A previously admin-only feature has been made available for all users. The rollback feature allows a user to quickly revert vandalism with one click. If you wish to have rollback, contact an active admin or post a request to WP:RFR.

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

The original featured topic drive, initiated by Scorpion0422, has concluded succesfully. National Hockey League awards is now a featured topic, with 24 articles in total. Of them, 20 are featured lists, one is a featured article, and the other three are trophy articles that were too short to become featured lists. Eight users signed up to help out, shown here. The next Featured Topic hasn't been decided upon, and the ideas and organization for it fell apart. If you have any ideas, don't hesitate to share them at WT:HOCKEY.

Notes
  • More editors are needed to help out with the newsletter. Maxim doesn't have an infinite nor perfect supply of ideas, and thus he might omit some interesting news.
  • Portal:Ice hockey is being considered for featured status. Feel free to nominate features at Portal:Ice hockey/Suggestions.
  • Should Chris Pronger have been suspended for more than eight games for stomping on Ryan Kesler? Vote here!

A Motorcycle Wiki

Hey Cs-wolves, Here's an opportunity to put your expertise in the area of motorcycles. Cycle Chaos is a Wiki-styled web site that needs a lot of help from people who love bikes and can contribute more information and even more manufacturers. There's virtually no problems with administrators and it seems free to edit without any trouble. You seem to be someone who can offer some content, images, categories, that may be lacking. My user page is: Cycle Chaos, Noles1984 stop by and say hello. Thanks. Noles1984 (talk) 16:15, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:MattNeal.jpg)

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:MattNeal.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. 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) 12:20, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Promotion and Relegation

Although many of the issues about what division a team will play in next season are now certain, they do not become members of that division or league until the Football League's official changeover date (I believe 1st June). Please desist from changing team's league status until that date. It is not for an encyclopeadia to pre-empt the appropriate authority. Kevin McE (talk) 23:13, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Sprint Cup Standings

Hey Cs-wolves do you plan on keeping the Point Standings table updated on the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series page? Just curious because I don't think anyone else is going to. Also I removed the flag icons to make it more readable, hope its not a problem.--KaseyKahneFan 18:27, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Tables

Hi Craig;
I saw the table you formatted in 2008 IndyCar Series season, congratulations for your job. You did it directly in the "code" or you use any external editor or something like this? If you can give me any tip I'll appreciate very much. Regards, Caiaffa (talk) 02:34, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

2007 Kansas Lottery Indy 300

Hi!
I appreciate all the work you have done on the 2007 IndyCar series minor race articles, but I don't understand why you keep reverting edits I have made in the header to the 2007 Kansas Lottery Indy 300 article. I understand that is the only article absolutely stating the winner and polesitter, but if that was the only reason, I was going to do that to every article to make it uniform. Sometimes, all people want to read is the header, so I thought it would be a good idea to sum it up there. I am going to revert the edit, but if you're answer makes sense, I'll leave it alone. I don't want to start any edit wars. Meisfunny Oh yeah! 16:01, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for understanding. I guess that's a pretty big job, so maybe we should back off that now. Altough I know Royalbroil has a bot and is part of the project. He might be able to do it automated with the bot. Let me know what you think on my page. Meisfunny Oh yeah! 23:03, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

AOWR driver results aesthetics

I noticed you reverted things on the Jay Howard and 2008 IndyCar season pages to what they were before. A clarification, perhaps, can sort out at least a few concepts on why I changed things to look the way they did.

Aesthetically, I see having the flags be on top as a way of both keeping a nice row, straight edges, etc., for at least a drop further ease on viewing eyes, but I've also been using it as a marking for what was the most recently updated race. All the races that have not yet been run, I don't push to the top with the "<br><small> </small>" syntax. Also, whomever first put in the asterisk on Howard's page, that I removed in favor of the "Rpl" reference, wanted to make clear that he never in fact got a qualification attempt before Roth, team owner, removed him in favor of Andretti. Not wanting to just mow down this other user is the source of creating the Rpl (which after a third consideration, should admittedly be blank, not White, in background color).

In any case, both the Howard page and soon enough the flag syntax are being brought up in the WP:AOWR talk page, so if you have objections, by all means please voice them there. Thank you in advance for reading this. --Chr.K. (talk) 16:42, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

List of 2008 motorsport champions

Is this years tabular layout better than last years bullet point version? --Falcadore (talk) 23:39, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I didn't agree with separating them last year. It was only really done last year because of the opinion of a single edittor. The title certainly includes them. --Falcadore (talk) 20:19, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
