TWL HighBeam check-in
Hello Wikipedia Library Users,
You are receiving this message because the Wikipedia Library has record of you receiving a one-year subscription to HighBeam. This is a brief update to remind you about that access:
- Make sure that you can still log in to your HighBeam account; if you are having trouble feel free to contact me for more information. When your access expires you can reapply at WP:HighBeam.
- Remember, if you find this source useful for your Wikipedia work, make sure to include citations with links on Wikipedia: links to partner resources are one of the few ways we can demonstrate usage and demand for accounts to our partners. The greater the linkage, the greater the likelihood a useful partnership will be renewed. For more information about citing this source, see Wikipedia:HighBeam/Citations
- Write unusual articles using this partner's sources? Did access to this source create new opportunities for you in the Wikipedia community? If you have a unique story to share about your contributions, let us know and we can set up an opportunity for you to write a blog post about your work with one of our partner's resources.
Finally, we would greatly appreciate if you filled out this short survey. The survey helps us not only better serve you with facilitating this particular partnership, but also helps us discover what other partnerships and services the Wikipedia Library can offer.
Orphaned non-free image File:Changhe logo.gif
Thanks for uploading File:Changhe logo.gif. 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).
It's all very confusing. Three rows of seats, three ten-cent coins, or cooperative? I think we may never know for sure, but I think it seems that the fare theory makes a lot of sense. In one of the references used (a BBC dead link) there is a matatu-inspired band called Ma3 - clearly they have an idea of the meaning. I looked at the history of the edits (I had originally thought that "Will-Wamaru" was a leftover reference from the Share Taxi article) and I think that the earlier uncited version ("mapeni matatu") was more coherent than the last one. I don't know what's the right answer but I would love to find out. Cheers, Mr.choppers | ✎ 16:04, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Bitcoin, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for a community good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article.Bosstopher (talk) 20:13, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Legality of Bitcoin by country
Hi there Fleetham, I did you the favor of reverting my edits entirely, since yours were even more wrong than the original, and since you guys don't seem to be able to leave the correct information that I added in place. I guess I won't bother editing the correct information in any more, since you folks who don't live here and don't know what's been going on are so adamantly opposed to the outdated (and in fact incorrect even when it was originally written, because the bloggers who wrote about the Robocoin ATM being blocked didn't bother to look into why it happened) and wildly wrong information being removed.
- I reverted your edit because you used sources that only report news about bitcoin ("cryptocoinsnews.com") and the website of a law firm. Neither are likely to pass WP:RELIABLE SOURCES. I was easily able to find sources that do conform to this rule and re-posted the info. you had initially included. I understand that it's frustrating to be unable to write whatever you want to on Wikipedia, but I do encourage you to read WP:RELIABLE SOURCES and look for high quality citations.

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Your edits on Electrolux
Hello. Blanket reverts to older versions of an article, like this edit on Electrolux, without checking what you're restoring are totally unacceptable. You're responsible for everything you restore, and in that edit you restored hoax material (including multiple links to hoax website "electrolux.com.mk") that I had previously removed. Don't do it again! Thomas.W talk 18:26, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
- It was 19 months of changes this time whereas last time it was only nine months. Please don't do it again. Ttwaring (talk) 23:07, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Your edit on Micropayment
Hi there, could you please explain why you removed ChangeTip and SatoshiPay from that page? There are plenty of sources citing them as current micropayment providers. Why don't Flattr and M-Coin get removed, too? What's the guideline here? Meinhard (talk) 20:23, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
- Mostly due to the sources... Flattr has a TechCrunch source, and while perhaps M-Coin should be removed, SatoshiPay had a "bitcoin news only internet website" as source and ChangeTip lacked a secondary source altogether I believe. Fleetham (talk) 21:52, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
