Numismatics[edit]

Greetings!! I'd like to welcome you to WikiProject Numismatics. Please note that this page is the actual project, not Wikipedia:Numismatic Collaboration of the Month. Anything you see that can be improved upon, go for it, anything that is lacking add it, anything that is all together absent, please fill us in. There are quite a few knowledgeable people of both numismatics and wikipedia, in this little project, so don't hesitate to ask. Please be sure to read through the whole of the project pages, as we have just recently started using some of them. Again, welcome.

You can add this to your user page:
{{NumismaticWikiProject-Member}}

Which looks like so:

This user is a member of the Numismatics WikiProject, a WikiProject which aims to expand coverage of numismatics on Wikipedia. Please feel free to join.
Hope this gets you off and contributing to the little project that makes the world go round. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask either me, or Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Numismatics. See ya  :) Joe I 19:53, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

revert: why?[edit]

On 2006-10-16T20:58:28 you reverted edits on my home page User:Curtius. I am a new user.

  • Why was this done?
  • What was improper about these edits?

Curtius 03:21, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

I reverted edits by 64.110.221.122 (talk · contribs). I have no way of knowing that 64.110.221.122 and you are the same person so I thought your user page was being vandalized. —Wknight94 (talk) 03:51, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
I understand, Thanks.
Curtius 13:29, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Is there some way to get the text back on a different page? If not, is it possible for you to revert the page back to 2006-10-16T20:58:07?
Curtius 13:42, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Oh yes, that's easy. If you go to User:Curtius and click the history tab, you'll see the whole history. If you click on the time of the revision you want, a copy of that revision will come up on the screen. If you then hit the edit this page tab, you'll see the raw code of that revision. You can search down to the text you want and select it and copy it into your clipboard. Then you can hit edit this page again and you'll see the latest revision. Scroll to where you want to paste the text and paste it and then save the page. I'll put the welcome message at the top of your talk page here so you can learn more about basic Wikipedia functions. —Wknight94 (talk) 14:54, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: editor review thanks[edit]

A watermark in Wikipedia is commonly any symbol that is not part of the image itself can be considered a watermark in Wikipedia: a label, a name, a copyright notice, a symbol, etc. There is absolutely no problem with the logo staying there, however I am not sure if Commons accept watermarked images. Note that Image:Cr 20-1 Obverse.jpg has been up for deletion since September, apparently no admin there noticed that. It is my belief that, since you didn't explain the watermark was yours, they thought it was a third-party site picture. However, note that I don't know a lot about Commons (other than having an account to report copyvio images there), so I may be wrong about the watermark.

If you change your ID, some links will change (as far as I remember, links to your name in history pages are updated), however other links like signatures you have used in talk pages are not, so you will have to correct them by hand.

I guess the best way to get replies is to contact a Commons administrator either here or at Commons, who are the ones who decide which images are fine at there and which ones are not. Note that, since you are allowing derivative work, anyone is able to edit the image, remove the watermark, and reupload it at Wikipedia.

I know I have left some questions unanswered. I recommend you to contact an administrator at Commons to question about the copyright tag in your Commons image, and to get more information about watermarks. Good luck! -- ReyBrujo 03:47, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: editor review[edit]

Hi there –

Wow, that's a bunch of questions! I'm a little busy this week, so I thought I'd drop you a quick note to tell you that I'm not ignoring you. It may be this weekend or even the first of next week before I have time to look at everything, but I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks – KrakatoaKatie 10:54, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Coin image box[edit]

You might be interest to know, I added the background capability to the 2 templates, and fixed the space between lines of text so that it's more like the default thumbnail box now. --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 17:52, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:57, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
