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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:06, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

How are you?[edit]

Thanks for the smiley. I was remembering you yesterday night and wanted to send a mail today. Hope you are keeping well after the surgery. Cheers.--Nvvchar. 01:43, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Doing quite well - thanks. Being in good health helped. Also being so young (70) helped (hehehe). The 3 inch cut turned out to be a 6 inch cut because the surgeon encountered more problems than anticipated. He told my wife "He will probably be in a little extra pain for the first couple of days." He was right! Now some 3 weeks later I am back to my o' self. It's soooooooo good just to be normal.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 11:20, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes, doing very well - thank you! Thanks for sending me your link. That will keep me busy for some time. I like looking over your articles, as I can always learn more good stuff and delicious Wikipedia techniques. --Doug Coldwell (talk) 14:41, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes, but you know the rules for posting images; I just know how to edit ;) Yoninah (talk) 21:22, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Nice. Could I ask you to help find images for some of the women I've been writing about for Women in Red? Yoninah (talk) 21:33, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
  • @Yoninah: Sure = Flickr, of course, is my first choice for copyright free images. THEN I look in Google for a Fair Use one. Do you have a particular one in mind?
  • @Yoninah: Here are some more ideas that you can take a look at = awhile back I did give some ideas on "Taking pictures" to User talk:7&6=thirteen on getting pictures.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 21:44, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
  • @Yoninah: I have to do a "ctl-alt-delete" as I have run out of RAMs today = but will start looking into those tomorrow. Here is an idea for Flickr, that seems to work for me 70% of the time on those copyrighted pictures -

I write articles for Wikipedia. Your picture
(link to her/his picture)
is interesting and would fit into one or more of the articles I am presently writing on.
There is at least one tag in use that makes your picture not usable on Wikipedia.
Would you consider downgrading your copyright tags to ONLY
"Attribution License" so I could use it on some Wikipedia articles.
Do you have any other similar pictures?
Thanks for your consideration.
Douglas Coldwell

  • I give them just one license option so NOT to confuse them.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 22:02, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks, that's a great idea. People are copyrighting lousy images from years back on Flikr; they themselves probably don't remember them. Yoninah (talk) 22:09, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
A very big thank-you for adding images to Theodora J. Kalikow, Sharon H. Abrams, and (a bonus!) Maine Children's Home for Little Wanderers! Yoninah (talk) 19:31, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Your welcome. I have a pretty good handle on pictures (because I needed for my DYKs).--Doug Coldwell (talk) 19:38, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Really, words fail me. Thank you so much for adding images to the rest of my requests. Next time, I'll ask for them one at a time. :) Yoninah (talk) 20:39, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
@Yoninah: Romona Robinson and Gloria Tanner have been challenged for Fair Use since they are still alive. So far I have NOT been able to find a copyright free image of either. I will have to look around more and send off some Flickr mail to see if I can get copyright free images.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 21:22, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Yoninah (talk) 21:44, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Romona Robinson.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Romona Robinson.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content 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, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Steel1943 (talk) 21:08, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Thanks for your comment. I had good intentions. Not all things work out. I did send Flickr mail, however no responses yet = which I am not surprised on, since many times Flickr answers take some time (or are never answered). Maybe next time we will have better luck on pictures.
