New Adoption Request[edit]

I'm relatively new to Wikipedia and after a few small edits, I was advised to seek out an experienced user who is willing to be a mentor. Among all the mentors in the Mentors' list, I felt your areas of interest match mine the most. I'm from India and am from the Computer Science and Engineering background. I am intersted in latest trends in Science and Technology, European History and the World Wars. I feel I can make some useful contribution to Wikipedia in these fields with the right guidance from you. Waiting for a positive reply. hashken (talk) 11:51, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Adoption request[edit]

Hi Ecallow, would you please adopt me. I need help with citations. I'm back on Wiki and my skills are rusty to put it nicely...EZRASExy (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2014 (UTC) Hello, Ecallow! Would you like to adopt me? I'm trying to publish an article about my company's software and I need someone who will tell me if it was not against any of Wikipedia's laws.

  • This is surreal: notifying yourself that you have raised an MfD request! Don't waste our time raising MfD requests for stuff in your userspace - use {{db-u1}}. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:44, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
  • I note that a minute after raising that MfD you did use db-u1 so possibly you have realised. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:48, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Gadget Show, World Tour Logo.jpeg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Gadget Show, World Tour Logo.jpeg. 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) 05:10, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Ecallow!

I'm a beginner Wikipedian, and I was wondering if you could help me with the image process, since I'm confused about its copyright issues and whatnot. I'm trying to add the logo of Toca Boca to its article. I found the logo here.

Thanks! --Bananasoldier (talk) 01:25, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi Bananasoldier

I've uploaded the image which you can see [[1]] and added it to the article!

Thank you very much! Bananasoldier (talk) 17:51, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Would you like to be adopted? I see that your user page has an adopt me userbox and I'm an adopter! Ecallow (talk) 17:53, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes! I would love to be adopted! I've had a Wikipedia account for a year now, but I still like to consider myself a newbie because I still don't know that much! :P

Bananasoldier (talk) 18:59, 29 December 2013 (UTC)


I really appreciated your logo placement for the Toca Boca article. I hope you don't mind, but I have another article that needs a logo. The article is Pocket Planes and the logo can be found here.

Do you know a specialist who would love to keep putting in these images for me?

Also, how do I know whether or not the image is copyright violation when I'm adding the logo?

Thanks! Bananasoldier (talk) 19:05, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I'd be happy to upload it and will show you how if you wish. I don't personally know any 'specialist' uploaders. On the subject of copyright - if it is made avaliable by the creator on brand guideline or press resources it's generally ok. If not then you can usually claim under 'Fair Use' just make sure it isn't used commercially. Ecallow (talk) 18:48, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! Actually, over the duration you were gone, I learned how to upload images. :D Bananasoldier (talk) 19:15, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Adoption request?[edit]

Hey! I'm relatively new to Wikipedia and I was wondering if you could be my go-to guy for any questions or concerns I might have! I'm good at grammar-checking and spell-checking, and would like to create any articles that need creating. I'm relatively experienced with the syntax, so no issues there. I share a lot of your interests, such as in the technology and computing sectors (just check out my user page for a little more on that). Hopeful adoptee out!

Speedy deletion nomination of Backwell School Radio[edit]

Hello Ecallow,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Backwell School Radio for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. TheLongTone (talk) 15:49, 13 February 2015 (UTC)


Sorry to create another adoption section on your talk page, but seeing all the current sections on there I was unsure of which one to place my request under. I would like to be adopted by an experienced user so that I may have help in learning all the in's and out's of wiki editing, ect. My interest are in science and technology, specifically in the fields of electricity and chemistry. Thank you and have a wonderful day! DeadFire999 (talk) 14:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
