Orphaned non-free image File:Milkandcereal.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Milkandcereal.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images 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 any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 03:19, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Completing the list of USC Trojans football seasons[edit]

Hi El Cid, sure, I can help with cataloging seasons for USC using the "USC Trojans under [coach]" article standard. I'll be happy to help out with a portion of the USC season cataloging. I should note I may be a little on the slow side, due to the following:

  1. As you probably noticed from when you saw my interest in USC listed, I do have Stanford listed as my first team, so my edits tend to be more toward Stanford articles than USC articles (indeed, I list 7 Stanford articles in my "Sample of Work" section). I'm also the only participant in the College Football WikiProject who lists an interest in Stanford. I've done 6 Stanford seasons, other users have done 11, there's 86 (!) to go, so perhaps finishing USC season cataloging will get me on a roll through the Stanford ones. In light of the dull season Stanford's having, I'll probably be more effective post-Orange Bowl but could certainly start before then.
  2. I also do a lot of political articles. Numerous politicians are taking office during the December-January period. The Governor of California, various California state officials, and the new members of the US Congress all take office on January 3, 2011, which, ironically, is the same day as the Orange Bowl.

That being said, let me know when you're ready to divvy up USC seasons. OCNative (talk) 09:09, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

I'll take Jess Hill and Don Clark at this point, and when I'm done, we can touch base to see what still needs to be done. Although looking at the seasons, what are your thoughts on a "USC Trojans football, 1951-1959" article instead of separate "USC Trojans football under Jess Hill" and "USC Trojans football under Don Clark" articles since Hill and Clark had relatively short (and conveniently consecutive) tenures? OCNative (talk) 05:34, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
I'd probably stick with coach articles. It retains consistency, more details about the tenure of each coach can be added to the intro paragraph, and it provides a bit of context about the successes and failures that lead to coach hirings. ― El Cid 17:13, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

KXSC[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of KXSC, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: KSCR (USC AM radio station). It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:53, 25 January 2011 (UTC)


Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

I reverted your manual edits and did the formal renaming. DMacks (talk) 22:07, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Tokyo Subway Map[edit]

Hello, El Cid! I found your map of Tokyo subway in Wikimedia Commons. Do you by any chance have this image in higher resolution? Or maybe an editable file? I would like to reproduce this image. Thank you in advance for your response.

Wikidajło (talk) 12:36, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately that's the biggest I ever made the file was the one on Commons. There is an editable file, but it's in the GIMP format, and not high-resolution at all, and I don't know how much help it would be. Besides, there have been better images made for the map since then. Still, there's the link to the .xcf file should you want to take a look.

Disambiguation link notification for December 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Pacific-12 Conference football champions, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page David Shaw (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.
