the madonna[edit]

Thanks.Dlohcierekim (talk) 17:47, 12 May 2017 (UTC)


Hi there. When you revert an unambiguous copyright violation, please tag the article with {{copyvio-revdel}}, for example Special:Diff/780058373. If there's more than a single revison that needs deleting, you can specify that as well, see the template docs. I recommend always clicking on the revision link(s) in the template message to double-check it's showing the correct diff adding the copyrighted content (and removing it if you are specifying a range), as it's easy to be off by one with the revision IDs. There's good advice on how to choose the correct IDs in the template docs. It's important to fully redact the copyrighted material from public access. Thanks.

  • Yes... I typically do, as you would see from my contributions. I actually had this page's history open in tabs to do just that, but for "reasons" did not get that completed. Thanks for tagging that one, CrowCaw 18:16, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Oh, ok. I didn't think to check your contribs, just thought you were not aware of it. I fully sympathise with getting distracted, Wikipedia is good at providing distractions. Thanks. Murph9000 (talk) 18:19, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Joe B. Jackson[edit]

This is really getting tiresome. The source of the alleged violation for Joe B. Jackson, [1], does not at all claim to be licensed. The footer very clearly states, "All material released by Claybourn Genealogical Society, Inc. to the public domain". How do I know this? Because I own, operate, and run that website. I released it fully to the public domain, and was sure to note it on the website. Perhaps you need to refresh your page? Regardless, please stop deleting a page for copyright violations when no such violation exists.--YHoshua (talk) 21:11, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @YHoshua: Apologies, it appears I did have a cached version. The new page's release is perfect. I do sympathise that this was getting tiresome but as a copyright owner i hope you can appreciate our desire to protect your intellectual property until it is clearly released by you (and not someone claiming to be you, etc). I'll remove the tag and make the appropriate notations for future reviewers. CrowCaw 21:21, 19 May 2017 (UTC)


Have you got any idea why CSB suddenly went down?There were problems with losing Yahoo's search index but apparently this was resolved.Just intereseted, since I came across this thread.Thanks!Winged Blades Godric 05:47, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi WB, Coren's bot stopped when Yahoo discontinued their BOSS service. The WMF searched and evaluated several replacements over a few months, during which time Coren went somewhat inactive. WMF finally settled on Google after some legal wrangling over their terms of service. Coren re-coded his bot to use that, and it worked for a week or so, then crashed. He restarted it after a week's absence, and it ran for 2-3 days then stopped again (either crashed or he stopped it). I pinged and emailed him many times and asked other WMF to try and check with him too. He had left the employ of the WMF by that time so they had no inside path to him, and I've not heard a word from him since then. I think that Copy Patrol has made the bot somewhat redundant, and its interface is easier to deal with in terms of closing reports than the old WP:SCV was. So that's the story... a bit long but probably good to have chronicled it for the record. CrowCaw 17:44, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply.That's an excellent chronicle and quenches my inquisitiveness to the full!Face-smile.svg.Winged Blades Godric 03:14, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello Crow,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 412 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.
