Replaceable fair use File:Monika Absolonova.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Monika Absolonova.png. 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. Eeekster (talk) 00:32, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Monika Absolonova.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Monika Absolonova.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 00:32, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Lena Meyer.png[edit]

Adding my userpage to my watchlist[edit]

Hey Eiji,

I got your note on my talk page. I appreciate the kitten, but am unsure of what you're trying to say. It's not possible for you to add my userpage to my watchlist (although, it must be noted that I've had my userpage on my watchlist for the past six or so years). If you meant that you added my userpage to your watchlist, then that's alright! You don't have to let me know, though. If you meant to ask me to add your userpage to my watchlist, I can do that.

Regarding fully protecting my userpage[edit]

Hey Eiji,

I got your note asking me to fully protect my own userpage so that nobody else can edit it. I appreciate your concern over the well-being of my userpage. As an administrator, yes, I can do that. If I wanted to, it would be allowed under the protection guidelines, as outlined here specifically. I just don't want to, and because it's my userpage, I can decide to keep it open. I'd rather have it that way. It fits into the "everybody can edit" philosophy of Wikipedia. I encourage you to give these links a read, for starters, so that you can learn more about why certain guidelines exist – and more broadly, absorb the broader mission of Wikipedia.

I remember that I started to learn about Wikipedia policy by following the blue links on pages, which led me to new pages, new ideas, and new insights on editing. The reason I'm taking the time to write a long-ish response to your messages is that I can fully relate to why you posted them. I was once somebody who wondered how I could help contribute. I wondered why others did the same. I wondered how people collaborated and put their often conflicting ideas together. To a certain degree, I still wonder about these things, and I forever will wonder.

So you asked why I am an administrator. Well, an administrator is an editor, just like everyone else. Being called an administrator just means that I do a lot of cleanup work and mediation in addition to adding stuff to articles. But, as I mentioned, I'm an editor, first and foremost. So why am I an editor? I want to help make this place better. It's fun, for the most part. It's fascinating. And it's fulfilling. So although I haven't been that active recently, thank you for the barnstar. Stars are shiny, and I can never get enough of them.
