While reviewing the North Pole article I discovered several citations to the non-notable journal DIO. For several reasons, I believe this journal is an unreliable source. Special:Linksearch indicates that Wikipedia currently contains 138 citations to this journal.

In short, there is a problem here that should be addressed, but I don't know who can help with it. Who can? Is there a WikiProject or other group whose job is to investigate unreliable journals and to remove or tag assertions that are cited to these journals?

The closest I can think of is WP:Reliable sources/Noticeboard; leaing a note there will get people experienced in determining the reliability of sources to check it out. There is no WikiProject dedicated to investigating unreliable journals. Huon (talk) 01:50, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
Mark Dominus - Leave a message on my talk page. I'll be happy to look through your concerns and determine if the source meets Wikipedia's guidelines on reliable sources. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 01:51, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
WP:Reliable sources/Noticeboard looks like what I want, thanks. —Mark Dominus (talk) 13:12, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

So sorry[edit]

Hey, there was an edit conflict and I think I might have accidentally removed your additions to the WP:RSN. I'm very sorry, just wanted to let you know so you can correct it if so. 172.56.29.186 (talk) 13:37, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

It looks okay to me. Thanks for the warning! —Mark Dominus (talk) 14:15, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

You might wanna hold off on the renovation[edit]

It's already in progressLingzhi ♦ (talk) 17:55, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! Please cite the OUP publication of Wavell’s journal for the Churchill quote, as it's the best possible source. —Mark Dominus (talk) 18:00, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
This project will take months. I am reading and re-reading everything. I even wrote a little Python program to help me mine quotes. it will be weeks at least before I get to the "Churchill spelled backwards is Satan" section. Cheers.  Lingzhi ♦ (talk) 18:03, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
In that case I'm going to add the Wavell thing now. Cheers! —Mark Dominus (talk) 18:11, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Placido2-s.jpg[edit]

You uploaded, File:Placido2-s.jpg, where you either stated that you had permission to upload it or that evidence of such permission would be provided on request. Wikipedia needs the permission to be explicit and proven at the time of upload.

Please read Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission, which advises on how to confirm the permission you obtained from a third party.

It is also advisable to ask the third-party what source attribution they desire, as opposed to marking the image as having been "sent personally". Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:06, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

The image file page includes an excerpt of the correspondence between myself and the copyright holder which specifically authorizes me to distribute this picture under the terms of the GFDL. If anything else is required, please state specifically and in detail what is needed. —Mark Dominus (talk) 15:42, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
You ideally need to send that correspondence to the OTRS permissions queue, the address is in the page I linked.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 21:34, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Ysolo[edit]

I remarked that this is apparently a hoax in one of our articles. Could you confirm at Talk:List of geological features on Ceres#Ysolo, and link to the discussion that established this as a hoax? Thanks. — kwami (talk) 03:52, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Congratulations on getting the mountain renamed. Presumably the new name is based on the Fiesta del Yamor in Otavalo, Ecuador, also see here. Verbcatcher (talk) 20:30, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! I was very pleased by the outcome. —Mark Dominus (talk) 03:22, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Deletion pending for File:Placido2-s.jpg[edit]

Hello, Dominus. Some time ago, a file you uploaded — File:Placido2-s.jpg — was tagged with {{OTRS pending}}, indicating that you (or perhaps the copyright holder if you did not create this image) submitted a statement of permission to permissions-en@wikimedia.org. Though there is often a backlog processing messages received at this address, we should have received your message by now.

  • If you have not submitted (or forwarded) a statement of permission, please send it immediately to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so.
  • If you have already sent this message, it is possible that there was a problem receiving it. Please re-send it to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so.

If we don't hear from you within one week, the file will be deleted. If we can help you, please feel free to ask at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 15:32, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Placido2-s.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Placido2-s.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
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. 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. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

ATTENTION: This is an automated, BOT-generated message. This bot DID NOT nominate your file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 03:00, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
