Welcome!

Hello Evets70, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! 

Good work on War of the Regulation-- it needed it. One minor comment, though-- I notice that you sometimes do a number of small edits in a row on the same article. This can make for a crowded edit history, and makes users who want to look over your edits page back through a bunch of (generally) slow-loading pages. You can avoid this by using the Show Preview button more often, holding off on hitting Save Page 'til you're pretty sure you're done.

As you clearly have an interest in American history, I'm sure I'll see you around, 'though I'll be away for two months, starting on the first. If you have any questions in the next 24 hours, don't hesitate. -- Mwanner | Talk 17:58, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:1918topo_HHI.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:1918topo_HHI.jpg. 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, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 15:26, 5 June 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 15:26, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Wikimania in Atlanta![edit]

Wikimania 2008 at Tech.jpg

Hi! I noticed your involvement on U.S. South-related articles, categories and WikiProjects, and I wanted to let you know about a bid we're formulating to get next year's Wikimania held in Atlanta! If you would like to help, be sure to sign your name to the "In Atlanta" section of the Southeast team portion of the bid if you're in town, or to the "Outside Atlanta" section if you still want to help but don't live in the city or the suburbs. If you would like to contribute more, please write on my talk page, the talk page of the bid, or join us at the #wikimania-atlanta IRC chat on freenode.org. Have a great day!

P.S. While this is a template for maximum efficiency, I would appreciate a note on my talk page so I know you got the message, and what you think. This is time-sensitive, so your urgent cooperation is appreciated. :) Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 22:48, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Since I sent you that message, UNC wants to have a sister event of its own; maybe you would be interested in coming to that or helping there. You can read about it at http://www.wikimania-atlanta.org Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 18:59, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

J. B. Long[edit]

I've tracked down some more info on Long and included it in the article. One minor point - the article mentions he was a store owner in Burlington, but the article on Blind Boy Fuller says he was in Durham. Do you know if the ref to Durham is a mistake, or did Long move to or from there at some point ? My knowledge of the geography of N Carolina is non-existent ! Ghmyrtle 13:43, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Only just read your second reply - the article may need changing again, so please do so using the info you've got. Thanks. Ghmyrtle 10:06, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Hillsborough 1955 aerial.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Hillsborough 1955 aerial.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 20:02, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

.......cool, thanks; it's fixed now Evets70


Notability of John A. Kay[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on John A. Kay, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because John A. Kay seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting John A. Kay, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 19:30, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

>>> WOW... one doesn't really get much time to save an entry before it gets deleted, does one? Too bad the deletion was a crock of s**t, according to Wikipedia's own guidelines...

WikiProject North Carolina Newsletters[edit]

WikiProject North Carolina May 2008 Newsletter[edit]

NEWSLETTER

Issue One • May 2008About the Newsletter

News

Hello WikiProject North Carolina members! A few of us at the The Newsroom Team decided to get together and re-energize the project, through these newsletters. This newsletter is hopefully the first of many to come. We want this project to be active in creating and expanding articles related to our state. If you're a current or former resident of the state, we hope that you will help spread the knowledge of how much there is to learn about North Carolina.

  • A great way to expand new articles is by keeping track of the new articles list. Please add any new NC-related articles or older ones you come across that have not been tagged with the project banner. When you notice an article has been added to the list, read over it and check for citations, grammatical errors, and spelling. If you've written a NC-related article in the past 5 days, read the requirements for Did you know... and add your article to the DYK nomination list. It might be chosen for the Main Page!
  • If you see a new member added to the project list, a great idea would be to leave them a welcome message on their talk page. Show them we notice new members and that we want them to become active participants.
  • If you have any questions in regards to the project, feel free to contact someone from The Newsroom Team. Thanks for all of your hard work and happy editing!

Wikimedia Commons[edit]

To Commons.svg

Thank you for uploading images/media to Wikipedia! There is, however, another Wikimedia Foundation project called Wikimedia Commons, a central media repository for all free media. In future, please upload media there instead (see m:Help:Unified login). That way, all of the other language Wikipedias can use them too, as well as our many sister projects. This will also allow our visitors to search for, view and use our media in one central location. If you wish to move previous uploads to Commons, see Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons (you may view images you have previously uploaded by going to your user contributions on the left and choosing the 'image' namespace from the drop down box). Please note that non-free content, such as images claimed as fair use, cannot be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons. Help us spread the word about Commons by informing other users, and please continue uploading!--OsamaK 22:42, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those.

Battle of Guilford Courthouse Flag[edit]

I readded the image, but added an additional sentence about the flags questionable validity. Have a great day. -DevinCook (talk) 19:04, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Booker T. Spicely[edit]

Please check my discussion note on the Booker T. Spicely page. I find using Wikipedia simply too complicated, and I don't want to change anything. But I'm sure of my facts, and suggest you take them into consideration. You may have other information as well. Bob H. Durham —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.182.47.225 (talk) 02:48, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for making the changes in the Booker T. Spicely page. To be completely accurate, I'd suggest you say that newspapers make no mention of "racially based arson" in the warehouse fire. There was speculation about arson in one paper, but it was not related to the murder, but rather mentioned an attempt a month before to burn one of the buildings. I am positive about the lack of riot--Durham Herald mentions that both black and white people gathered to watch the fire. The initial reference to arson and riot comes from a Chapter by Tim Tyson in the book on Wilmington riots edited by Cecelski. It is then repeated by Cristina Greene and on the web. Tyson cites a couple of unpublished papers--it's not clear to me whether they are student papers--which may have just jumped to a conclusion--or whether they come from interviews or other original sources. I think the riot part may be a conflation of the 1943 "liquor store" riot with the 1944 murder. I plan to talk with Tyson to try to sort this out. Bob H. Durham —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.182.47.225 (talk) 01:52, 14 June 2009 (UTC)


Will do... thanks again for your input. I made a few changes... please let me know what you think. Yeah, I was thinking that the "riot" info may have come out what seems to be two or so papers by a Duke student. I'd like to find out more about where she got her information. I wonder if it is local lore, or if just a bad conclusion was drawn?

I don't have much more info than what I posted here on Wikipedia from what I recall; I've done some more research on his military background, but can't find my files right now. Researching Spicely's been on the backburner for awhile now! Evets70 (talk) 18:06, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd be happy to share my materials with you. I think the stuff on Spicely's military background, home town, and Council's death that you've put in is a great contribution. In addition to making sure the historical record is correct, I would really like some notice taken of the 65th anniversary of Spicely's death (July 8, 2009) and perhaps lobby for either a historical marker at Club and Berkeley and/or naming the new Walltown Park recreation center after him. Could we arrange a meeting? I'd be happy to provide my email or phone, but don't know how it works in Wikipedia. Best regards, Bob H. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.182.47.225 (talk) 01:22, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:BlindBoyFuller-dc.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:BlindBoyFuller-dc.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:56, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
