May 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of tallest buildings in El Paso may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 21:29, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Image placement[edit]

Please observe WP:LAYIM: images should be relevant to the section that they are in. Do not place images BEFORE headings of the sections that they belong in, as that totally breaks the display model on mobile and other platforms. I fixed some at El Paso, but you have added more wrongly placed ones since. Please fix. Dicklyon (talk) 22:55, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Also please pay attention to spaces, which are required after the end of a sentence, or after a comma, and before the next thing you add. I have reverted your most recent edits so that you can try again to get it right. Dicklyon (talk) 23:45, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

I also reverted your edits at University of Texas at El Paso, since you changed the numbers to not agree with the cited sources. Dicklyon (talk) 00:34, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I also reverted your edits at List of tallest buildings in El Paso, which you had left in a very mangled state, and didn't say what the point of your changes was anyway. Dicklyon (talk) 00:56, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you.

Edit summaries again[edit]

Hello and again welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed you are not leaving an edit summary when you edit a page. As the above message states please see m:Help:Edit summary so other editors have an idea what you're doing. It's quite simple actually. Thank you.--Theda 00:33, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:El Paso Zoo entrance.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:El Paso Zoo entrance.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included.

Disambiguation link notification for May 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Western Playland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sunland Park (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Orphaned non-free image File:Western Playland Logo.jpeg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Western Playland Logo.jpeg. 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 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:45, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
