Thanks for uploading Image:BulletJoe.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

NN toy[edit]

Sorry for being so cryptic. "NN" is an abbreviation for "non-notable"; i.e., the subject of the article is not notable and thus shouldn't have an article. --Orange Mike | Talk 22:08, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Notability of ProPay[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on ProPay, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because ProPay seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting ProPay, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 23:40, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

hello[edit]

I noticed you had written on the portmanteau word talk page you were sick of seeing it everywhere. Well, I've been attempting to eliminate instances of it, and have several conversations going. If you want to help, I'd appreciate it. Talk:Portmanteau word Drinkybird (talk) 01:38, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Drvanthorp! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 3,029 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Roger Broughton - Find sources: "Roger Broughton" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Fair use rationale for File:DanDunn.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:DanDunn.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:59, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In Oompas, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page Skittles (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.

A. Wolf[edit]

Wondering if you can help me. A few years back, you had added the character "A. Wolf" to the "A" section of the List of DC Comics characters. Do you know what book that character first appeared in? I want to add that info to the list so it can be used as verification that it's an actual DC character and not a mistake. If it can't be verified, I would like to remove it instead. Thanks in advance! The Darknight Detective (talk) 16:19, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply, Drvanthorp, though I was able to find the character on the Peter Porkchops page :-). The Darknight Detective (talk) 13:58, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Supermindsson1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Supermindsson1.jpg.
