Welcome![edit]

Hello, Giantsrule, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at Naming Conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.
Additional tips:
Here are some extra tips to help you get around Wikipedia:
  • If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills, try the Sandbox.
  • Click on the Edit button on a page, and look at how other editors did what they did.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Always sign comments on Talk pages, never sign Articles.
  • You might want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If your first language isn't English, try Wikipedia:Contributing to articles outside your native language
Happy editing!

Baseball players[edit]

Welcome! Please note that you shouldn't add names to the List of Major League Baseball players until their article is active. Also, please include the name you're adding in the Edit summary box; it saves time when looking at the history page to see what's been added. Having said that, it's good to have you involved!

Your signature[edit]

Please do not sign your user name on articles and templates. It is inappropriate. If you just want the current date, please type 5 tildes (~~~~~). Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 00:12, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Welcome to the American Football wikiproject[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you recently joined the American Football wikiproject. I notice that in the member section, you note that you are interested in working on articles related to the 49ers. We certainly welcome you to our project, but the focus of this project is to work on cleaning up the general football articles, esp. those related to strategy terms (formations, plays, strategies, schemes, sets, etc. etc.). You are free to help out with those article, but you should really check out the Wikipedia:WikiProject National Football League. There you will find relevent discussions to issues specific to the national football leagues, especially players, coaches, and teams that play there. But we DO welcome and value you contributions to the articles here. So good luck and happy editing! --Jayron32 20:54, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

49ers stuff[edit]

Hey, the 49ers stuff is looking cool. But check out the Wikipedia:WikiProject National Football League. That project may have templates and things already to go. Check with articles in that wikiproject to make sure all NFL articles have a uniform style. If you are interested in general football strategy type articles, be sure to check in on Wikipedia:WikiProject American football We need all of the help we can get there. Check out the discussion page to see what we are currently working on there. --Jayron32 23:21, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Shawntae Spencer.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Shawntae Spencer.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. 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 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --Chowbok 16:07, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Andris_Biedrins.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is either no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use, or else the rationale given is not valid. 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 insure 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 fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and 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. MER-C 12:12, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
