For nominating a candidate no other editor or admin may have had the gumption to nominate. I consider this nomination an improvement in representing the lesser represented areas and communities on Wikipedia, assuming the candidate belongs to south asia. Everybody congratulates the candidate; few do the nominator. So congratulations to you. And thank you again. Much appreciated. Lourdes 03:06, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Lourdes, thanks for the kind words, I do appreciate it :) Kind Regards, FASTILY 04:50, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Michael Jackson death certificate amendment form.jpg[edit]

I removed your bot's CSD F4 tag on the grounds that the death certificate amendment is a work of the State of California eligible for public domain status under Wikipedia rules for the PD-CAGov tag. Please check your bot's automation, and if you believe I am in error, please feel free to re-add the tag and send a notice under a new section to my User talk page. Thank you.

Hi @ShawnIsHere, thanks for the note. I do believe my tag was correct, however this is pretty easy to fix, so let's do that. Could you please tell me how you obtained this image (and/or where it came from)? (e.g. you scanned it, downloaded it from a website, found it in a book, etc). Thanks, FASTILY 04:50, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
I don't know exactly where I downloaded it from (the image was uploaded a few years ago), but I am 70% certain I found it on a typepad-hosted blog image that was linked on a forum called, where it was located via GIS. Initially I was reluctant to post it at the time, but the amendment was later confirmed by several news sources so I posted it as it was the only largely unaltered copy online of decent quality. In any case, as the original document is considered public domain, I figured the largely unaltered copy was also similarly protected (if I am wrong I apologize, but I am probably not if I read WP:PD and Template:PD-CAGov correctly). Hopefully that helps. ShawnIsHere: Now in colors 05:27, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I think I was able to find a url link for the file, and have updated the file description page accordingly. Regards, FASTILY 06:25, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Shining Rock from Black Balsam Knob (cropped).jpg[edit]

I am the author. It is not clear to me how to fix this in the author field. What template is needed, etc. Robert Badgett 19:57, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Badgettrg, are you the author/photographer of both File:Shining Rock from Black Balsam Knob (cropped).jpg & File:Shining Rock from Black Balsam Knob.jpg? -FASTILY 04:43, 21 October 2016 (UTC)


I have just noticed you put an image of mine from 2006 up for deletion. May I suggest that in future, as a common courtesy to the uploader you NOTIFY the uploader on their talk page. Your efforts at removing dubious sourced images is commendable, but if you are going to do it, please do it properly. I have updated the source information on the image. Thanks LordHarris 07:53, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi @LordHarris. FastilyBot leaves missed courtesy notifications for uploaders within 24 hours of tagging. Looks like you're faster than the bot :-) I can see that you've stated that is is a government photo, however, could you please describe how you obtained the photo (e.g. you scanned a physical copy, found it on a website/book/etc)? I'd like to clarify those source details, thanks. Best, FASTILY 21:10, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't realise it was a bot! As far as I can remember it was a photograph I took of an actual photograph, but I can't be sure. It was so long ago. Beyond what I have already added, if that still doesn't meet with current source guidelines then am happy for you to go ahead with the deletion, as I can not provide more information than that! I did a big project on getting Bill Clinton to good article years ago and this photo was around the time I went to the archives in the U.S. The Sidney Blumenthal article does have an image from another source on the page anyway by the looks of things! Thanks. LordHarris 22:01, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I noticed this image did not have an {{information}} template but most of the information seems to fit, as the photographer Sharon Farmer was the official White House photographer at the time, so the tag {{PD-USGov-WH}} is obviously correct, so it seems entirely justifiable to keep if all that info is added, as "original photo copied by uploader". ww2censor (talk) 23:21, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
I've updated the file description page accordingly. Thanks to the both of you :) -FASTILY 23:27, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Martin Gernát[edit]

Back in 2012 his article was PRODed and rightfully deleted by you. He now fulfills WP:NHOCKEY by playing in the Czech Extraliga (criteria #1), but I don't know if more is needed to restore the biographical article.18abruce (talk) 16:35, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi 18abruce. I resigned as administrator some time ago, so I'm not able to restore pages. Please make this same request at WP:REFUND, and an administrator will restore the page. Regards, FASTILY 00:41, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you.18abruce (talk) 21:55, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

File:PeterBethune with Earthrace.JPG[edit]

Moving File:PeterBethune with Earthrace.JPG may be problematic. The file was originally here, but was moved to commons because it was free. However, it was deleted from there after the source website was reorganised and somebody decided that it wasn't really free after all. It was then moved here and I was able to get permission from the Earthrace website's Director of Communications, but I was hesitant about moving it back to commons because it's a tad inconsistent. --AussieLegend () 14:43, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
