tipton three merge?[edit]

May I ask you to take a look at Talk:Tipton Three?

Some people think a merge is a good idea. But more people thought it was a mistake.

I continue to think it is a mistake. Did you have new reasons to add to the discussion?

Cheers! -- Geo Swan 23:27, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Fair use disputed for Image:Rafis Revenge.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Rafis Revenge.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:13, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Rationale for album covers[edit]

Noticed that you'd removed the disputed tag from the Rafi's Revenge page before because you thought it was a mistake. It seems a bit odd to me but apparently album covers, single covers etc have to have a 'Fair use rationale' for each use in addition to the 'boiler plate' added when uploading. You can see an example on one of the covers I uploaded here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Feist-monarch.jpg

Once you've added the rationale you can get rid of the dispute tag. Just thought I'd help you out 'cos I didn't understand the bot message for ages after a load of my album covers got tagged! Cavie78 11:49, 26 October 2007 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Target Earth DVD Cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Target Earth DVD Cover.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Speedcabling[edit]

You beat me to it! :P I had my article ready and was ready to press the Save button, but was just three minutes later than you. I refactored it a bit - I didn't think the separate "Winners" section was necessary for such a short article, and reworded a couple of minor points that did not seem notable. But anyway, well done for being first. :) • Anakin (talk) 17:59, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Factorylad

How are you finding Wikipedia so far? Are you enjoying editing Law Enforcement related articles? now your a fully fledged member, I was looking at your created pages and I must make you aware that I think they are very good. Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 15:14, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

That was something I found too when I joined only a little while ago that most articles you know about are already created, but then again there is no mad race or rush to make them, [1] < althought you can find the list of outstanding articles in the link for the project, so your a police officer? in England right? Happy Editing! Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 15:30, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes of course, I dont blame you. If anythings dangerous the Internet has to be in the top 10, lol most of the users like to display Userboxes me included. Thanks for the info :) Again happy editing! Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 15:45, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

RE: Covert policing in the United Kingdom[edit]

Hello Factorylad, thanks for your polite message. The reference did say that most forces did not have a dedicated surveillance team, but then again the book was not as recent as others. If you think what you brought up needs to be changed, by all means please feel free to do so :). Regards, Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 15:15, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Apart from that, do you think the article is OK? Police,Mad,Jack (talk · contribs) 15:44, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:316534493 l.jpg[edit]

If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page.

File permission problem with File:316534493 l.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:316534493 l.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. 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 provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MilborneOne (talk) 22:13, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:SpiesLiesWhistleblowers.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:SpiesLiesWhistleblowers.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-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 this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Thirdship (talk) 07:35, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Reflist/Robert Taylor incident[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mhiji 01:44, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Target Earth DVD Cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Target Earth DVD Cover.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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:20, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
