May 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Kyle Blanks, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Per WP:CIRCULAR, Wikipedia cannot use itself as a source. What you can do is use reliable sources found in other articles; however, the related text in the article you referenced, Inside-the-park home run, was also unsourced. Perhaps you will have better luck finding a source than I did.Bagumba (talk) 23:04, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Fails WP:Music

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Orphaned non-free media (File:Slava Voynov, Los Angeles Kings v. Anaheim Ducks, November 2011.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Slava Voynov, Los Angeles Kings v. Anaheim Ducks, November 2011.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 09:30, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Nobel Peace Prize (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Nobel Peace Prize (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not really a disambiguation page, more a list of related topics; and all of these topics are more logically accessed by readers through the Nobel Peace Prize article than through this nearly context-less list.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. R'n'B (call me Russ) 19:45, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I only made it because I saw that many reader comments were asking for a list of Nobel prize laureates. Although I realise that that list is easily accessible via the article itself, I thought the disambiguation page might make it easier to find. However, I have no objection to its deletion.

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tundmatu Language concern[edit]

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tundmatu Language, a page you created, has not been edited in 6 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

If the deletion has already occured, instructions on how you may be able to retrieve it are available at WP:REFUND/G13.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 18:48, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Your draft article, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tundmatu Language[edit]

Hello Dylanvt. It has been over six months since you last edited your WP:AFC draft article submission, entitled "Tundmatu Language".

The page will shortly be deleted. If you plan on editing the page to address the issues raised when it was declined and resubmit it, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code. Please note that Articles for Creation is not for indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you want to retrieve it, copy this code: {{subst:Refund/G13|Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tundmatu Language}}, paste it in the edit box at this link, click "Save page", and an administrator will in most cases undelete the submission.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. —Anne Delong (talk) 18:15, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at I (disambiguation) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 15:37, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Imonda[edit]

Hello! In December 2013 you replaced my neutral apostrophes (') with typographic apostrophes (’) in my additions to the Imonda article. This resulted in triple apostrophes where italics had been intended. Now I admit that I'm not sure of the conventions in language articles regarding glosses, but making glosses italic seems sensible so I'm changing it back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dranorter (talkcontribs) 06:59, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

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.

File copyright problem with File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Steel1943 (talk) 19:26, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.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. Steel1943 (talk) 20:58, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Deletion pending for File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.jpg[edit]

Hello, Dylanvt. Some time ago, a file you uploaded — File:Tree in Bolton, Vermont.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) 14:36, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Pthfd[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Pthfd, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Under section G3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, the page has been nominated for deletion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. shoy (reactions) 16:36, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Special:Diff/799156607[edit]

Care to explain this edit you made to the Hurricane Irma article? You're a long-term user, so I was surprised to see you make a vandal-like edit. Master of Time (talk) 00:27, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure what you're referring to. I simply moved a preposition over a few words to make the sentence grammatical.Dylanvt (talk) 00:46, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
Edit: It is possible that I mistakenly changed the name of Christopher Landseal (who appears in a citation) to Spaghettiopher Landseal, which may have been caused by this Chrome extension that I have, which turns the word "Jesus" into "Jeffy" and the word "Christ" into "Spaghetti" every time either one appears on my browser. The inspiration for this extension is this tweet. As both the word "Christ" and the word "Spaghetti" appear to me as "Spaghetti", I can't verify that this did in fact happen, but it certainly seems possible. If so, I'll be sure to beware such changes in the future.Dylanvt (talk) 00:55, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
Just click on "Show changes" and you can see if any weird browser-caused text modifications are trying to slip through. That's probably what happened. It's nice to have an explanation. Master of Time (talk) 02:04, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
