Thanks for your contributions![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for your contributions to Sof Omar Caves, especially for providing references — so few newcomers seem to realize their importance. I cleaned it up by adding some links and using the new inline reference format. Do you have any photos of the cave that you can distribute under a free license? Happy editing, and leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions. —Keenan Pepper 18:12, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Sof Omar Caves[edit]

Hi Dave -- Just a couple of notes to help make your contributions to Wikipedia more enjoyable. First, in answer to your question about footnotes, you can find the preferred style at Wikipedia:Footnotes; if you examine that page, you will see that your footnote text was moved to the respective place in the text between the <ref></ref> tags. Second, please sign your comments by typing four tildes (e.g. ~~~~) at the end of your comments; that way, people know who they are talking to. I look forward to seeing more contributions from you. -- llywrch 06:06, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Great Hall.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Great Hall.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 05:07, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Mudwall_Passage.jpg[edit]

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

Unspecified source for Image:Great Hall.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Great Hall.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. 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: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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Indon (reply) — 16:48, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
