Hey[edit]

Working Man's Barnstar.png A barnstar for a recent string of excellent work! εγκυκλοπαίδεια* (talk) 03:22, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Messed up the barnstar at first. Hey, maybe we could get a chance to write a little in Portuguese. εγκυκλοπαίδεια* (talk) 03:51, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Hear hear! I was just coming here to award the same barnstar for all of the new Primate articles you've created. I'm in the process of making them conform with the WP:PRIM standard. Can you give me a day to catch up with you before going further? Thanks man, and keep up the good work! - UtherSRG (talk) 19:25, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Ok, I've caught up with all of the new Primate articles. - UtherSRG (talk) 17:27, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Oi![edit]

Claro, se voce quiser treinar seu portugues me escreva e eu posso te ajudar. Abracos. Exlibris 21:19, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Obrigado, ainda tenho que melhorar minha compreensão e a pronuncia. Eu quis saber se o mensagem na acima da pagina é escrito apropriadamente. Estava preocupando-me por muito tempo. Eu quis ter a oportunidade a usar português com um falante nativo. Estou tão alegre porque eu posso fazer-lo agora. A vezes eu ponho palavras espanolas em frases portugueses. Já escrevei pela Wikipédia portuguesa. Os pessoas lá dizem que eu estava escrevendo bem. Tchau e um abraço. Eu tenho que dar-lo um estrela uma outra vez. εγκυκλοπαίδεια* (talk) 21:54, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Slaves Mass and Fair Use[edit]

Hi, I will go ahead and remove that Slaves Mass image from Hermeto Pascoal again. As per fair use it really doesn't belong there. However, it would be perfectly OK to use in a Slaves Mass article, so I moved it there. In fact I started that article for the sole purpose of being able to use the image. If you care to follow along there is plenty of discussion about this in the WP:Fair use talk page. Thanks, -- Gyrofrog (talk) 04:54, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, glad you agree. If I have time in the next day or two, I will try and go back and at least add an {{Album infobox}} to Slaves Mass. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 05:59, 16 December 2005 (UTC)


Image Tagging Image:Rafael rabello.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Rafael rabello.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then 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 media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

It seems like the {{albumcover}} tag, source information and a fair use rational on the image description page would be the most useful thing you could do here. Regards, Dethomas 20:55, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Blastocerus dichotomus.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Blastocerus dichotomus.gif. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Image legality questions page. Thank you. Shyam (T/C) 14:06, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Empty stubs[edit]

Please don't create articles which contain nothing but taxoboxes and external links. Empty stubs will be deleted. User:Zoe|(talk) 02:30, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Please stop. Concentrate on quality, not quantity. User:Zoe|(talk) 02:36, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Confucius. Exlibris 02:40, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

A collection of empty stubs is not an encyclopedia. Work on one at a time. Even two or three sentences would conceivalby justify keeping these, but empty articles are deleted on sight. User:Zoe|(talk) 02:39, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Though you've already been awarded a barnstar, I can't resist giving you another!


Bio barnstar2.png The Bio-star
The Bio-star is awarded to you for your work generating opossum articles! Gray Porpoise 19:27, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

I second that barnstar. Punkmorten 05:10, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Rodent articles[edit]

Exlibris,

Thanks for all the new rodent articles. There certainly aren't enough editors working on this large group. There were two things I wanted to point out.

  1. There's a rodent-stub template that's more specific than mammal-stub.
  2. It's critical that the scientific name be redirected to these pages. Common names for mammals aren't formalized and there's a particularly wide variety of possibilities for these lesser known taxa. The only way readers can expect to effectively get to these articles is through the genus and species name.

Thanks and I hope you'll see fit to keep at it. --Aranae 01:05, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Golden lion tamarin smithsonian.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Golden lion tamarin smithsonian.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Abu Badali 03:10, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Golden Lion Tamarin pic[edit]

Hello Abu, read the picture´s file history to check the source. Well, anyway, here´s the source information again: Jessie Cohen, NZP photographer http://nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/PhotoGallery/SmallMammals/ further information about copyright: http://nationalzoo.si.edu/copyright/default.cfm Best regards Exlibris 03:21, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointer, Exlibris. I have now added the source info to the image description page, and removed the {{no source}} template. But I see that this {{smithsonian}} template as dangerous. The fact that teh Smithsonian Institution considers the some usage of it's image as fair use doesn't automatically makes the images OK under Wikipedia:Fair use criteria. The category needs attention. Anyways, for now, Image:Golden lion tamarin smithsonian.jpg needs a "a detailed fair use rationale for each use", as described in the template. Can you provide them? Thanks again and let me know if you need any help. Best regards, --Abu Badali 03:50, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Image:Pteronotus parnelli smithsonian.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Pteronotus parnelli smithsonian.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Hi Exlibris,

I am assuming that you are Whaldener Endo, the creator of this image. I couldn't quite tell anywhere from your userpage or the image page whether that was definitely the case. If not, could you please leave me a note on my talkpage as I would need to make some corrections to this promotion. Thanks, --jjron (talk) 08:22, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Almeida_junior_caipira.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Almeida_junior_caipira.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, 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, 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:Non-free content, 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 19:27, 16 July 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. OsamaK 19:27, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Eyetoeye.JPG[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Eyetoeye.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" 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. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 20:44, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Barrios Image should be removed[edit]

Hi there!

Just wanted to tell you that the "Barrios image" should be removed. There is blatant advertising for a recording by Alexander-Sergei Ramirez, which is not appropriate, since this page is not about Ramirez but about Barrios. A possible better replacement could be the following image [1] Ovens for sale (talk) 11:12, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Parasense[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Parasense has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Other than a link to their discogs entry, totally unsourced. The reason most likely being that searches didn't turn up a single in-depth article about this band. Several trivial mentions, but that's about it.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
