Disambiguation link notification for July 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Write the Future, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Back To The Start (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Replaceable fair use File:Hans Karlsson.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 06:43, 23 January 2013 (UTC)


I found a link to this in one of the TFAR talk page archives. Wow, what a lot of work went into it! (I speak with a little knowledge on the subject, having done something similar at User:Bencherlite/TFA notepad for my own purposes as a new TFA delegate). Anyway, I hope you don't mind, but I went through your page and took out the articles that had appeared on the main page / been demoted at FAR since you last edited it. I've added a link to your page for my own benefit at my notepad page, and I'm sure I'll consult it regularly when I'm trying to work out what articles to schedule as TFAs. Thanks for your efforts. Regards, and best wishes. BencherliteTalk 23:54, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

The Life[edit]

I'm thinking of nominating The Life (advertisement) for GA status. I just thought I'd let you know first as you are the one who has done the vast majority of the work on it. Cheers, James086Talk 16:23, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization consisting of over 28,000 volunteers in more than 100 countries. The collaboration was formed to organize medical scholarship in a systematic way in the interests of evidence-based research: the group conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.

Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account. Thank you Cochrane!

If you are stil active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 19:58, 16 June 2013 (UTC)


There are two WP:RFCs at WP:FOUR. The first is to conflate issues so as to keep people from expressing meaningful opinions. The second, by me, is claimed to be less than neutral by proponents of the first. Please look at the second one, which I think is much better.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:33, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:ArbCom MTG Card.png or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Orphaned non-free image File:Creamofwheatmodern.gif[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Creamofwheatmodern.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).

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) 15:21, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Magic: The Gathering parody cards[edit]

Where'd you go to make your Wikipedia Magic cards? I've got a few ideas, but anywhere I find doesn't let me put in an expansion symbol. (I prefer to keep all discussions on one page, so please respond here) (I'll be off-wiki from Tuesday afternoon til Saturday sometime, so it might take a while before I respond) Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 02:27, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Man, I made those nearly a decade (and three computers) ago now. I honestly have no idea what I used, except that it was on the first page of results of whatever search engine I was using back then. I do recall that I added in the expansion symbol to the finished product using Photoshop, but that's about it. I'm honestly surprised that five of the six of them are still up and about.
Looking back, Arbitration Committee definitely needs a massive rewording. "Skip a turn"? seriously? End the turn (activate only when you could cast a sorcery) would work, though that's not much of a drawback, since you can use it post-combat. Skip your next turn would work too, though I can't imagine a situation that would ever, ever be improved by using that card. Ah, and it needs to specify that the spells are cast 'without needing to pay their mana cost', too. Wheel War is pretty parasitic, I'd probably let it apply to all creatures. The rest aren't bad, though Collaboration of the Week should be a darned-sight cheaper for its effect. GG would probably do it. GeeJo (t)(c) • 13:44, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Maybe "Skip your next combat phase"? I was thinking of, among other things, a Legendary Land for each WMF project, a Cluebot creature with the Evolve mechanic, and a massive cycle of the various WikiFauna with corresponding effects. When I get back, I'll see about making some (minus the Wikipedia expansion symbol since I don't have GIMP or Photoshop or anything like that), would you mind if I added them to the existing gallery? Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 14:33, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Sure, no worries. You know that GIMP is free (and relatively easy) to use, though, right? GeeJo (t)(c) • 15:00, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Yep, and I'm quite fond of it! Unfortunately, my home computer died and the school doesn't like us downloading stuff, so I'm up a creek without a paddle in that respect. Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 15:05, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
