Your user page
Hi; I just moved what I presume you meant to be your user page, goncalopp, to User:Goncalopp. Personal pages don't belong in the main article space; the User: prefix indicates the user space (as with User talk:). Anyway, that's a very nice case mod! Cheers, -- Hadal 05:50, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)
no it looks like you must be right, if it cites it in other places. although i DO have the book in front of me and it writes it consistently, and not just in one place, without a j. i have the original UK version of northern lights, let me see.. published by Scholastic Ltd. / Point, 1998 edition. ie not translated. i dont know why there's this inconsistency, but to tell you the truth, i always thought it had a J too, and i always pronounced it as such, but then i looked in my book and was pretty struck by the consistent lack of a J. you decide.
I found this page because of a question in the general help area, then I added some stuff myself, because much of my IT career has been in the legal modifying of licensed derivative software, and my employers have been involved in the modifying of hardware that many people might not associate with the notion of modifying.
I also enjoy simulation games, have both designed some of my own, and modified others, where it was my understanding that modifying was an entirely approved activity by the game publisher. I have also been involved in the organization of games conventions, where I have discovered that different game companies have totally different notions of what is an approved use of their games.
Then I took a look at prior editors and thought I would give y"all a heads up that I had made some mods to this article on mods to try to clarify notions of where this is a very bad thing to do vs. ho hum so mundane as to be no question but that it is perfectly legitimate activity.

Image copyright problem with Image:Alethiometer.jpg
Thanks for uploading Image:Alethiometer.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
- That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.
Fair use rationale for File:Alethiometer.jpg
Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Alethiometer.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 'file' 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 "File" 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:23, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
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.
