License tagging for File:Andy Gregory.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Andy Gregory.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 21:08, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

The Return To Gibraltar (science fiction novel)[edit]

I have declined your speedy deletion nomination on this, because it is no longer promotional in tone - since you tagged it, the author has removed the fluff about "a great read for any level of science fiction fan" etc. It may not meet the fairly demanding standard of WP:Notability (books), though - I haven't trawled trough all the references - so you could consider PROD or AfD. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 21:32, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi JohnCD, thanks for reviewing this! Cheers Heywoodg 21:34, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

notable sources[edit]

what is notable sources , you mentioned in your last tag on bizeso post — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sonal.bajaj (talkcontribs) 12:31, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello! As I mentioned, you need to look at WP:ORG. That lists the criteria for inclusion of a company, but basically:

"An organization is generally considered notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. Trivial or incidental coverage of a subject by secondary sources is not sufficient to establish notability. All content must be verifiable. If no independent, third-party, reliable sources can be found on a topic, then Wikipedia should not have an article on it."

There is more there about depth of coverage, audience, etc, but I really suggest you give it a read, and find the sources. The article is still marked as a candidate for deletion so rather than deleting the tag and ignoring it, you should look for sources and you can then add to the article, and >>here<< (which was on the tag you removed!).

Vandalisim Edits[edit]

This is a School's IP adress and thus is shared, I apologize for the vandalisim but I wouldn't blame you for some kind of perma-block, the schools don't allow Wikipedia for research uses as it isn't considered a credible source due to the fact that anyone can edit it at any time, and so all edits from this IP are more than likely going to be vandalisim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:35, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello, it looked like something like that ;) Thanks for the comments! Heywoodg talk 14:37, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Cover of The Terry Lamb Story.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Cover of The Terry Lamb Story.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. SchuminWeb (Talk) 15:33, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Cover of The Terry Lamb Story.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-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 this non-free media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images 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 our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. SchuminWeb (Talk) 15:33, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

For remaining polite and courteous even after being dubbed an ignorant, racist nazi. Your tolerance far outstrips mine; good on you. Yunshui (talk) 21:12, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Wow, thanks! I now this is only wikipedia, just a website, etc, but that made my day :) Heywoodg talk 21:23, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Ken Sibanda[edit]

I have declined your speedy - non-notable and COI are not speedy reasons, see WP:CSD#Non-criteria. Daniel has re-opened the AfD, and I have re-linked the article so the discussion can continue. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:34, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Cheers JohnCD. I thought it had actually been re-created after being deleted once, I didn't realize what the author had done! Thanks for sorting it out (and the Gibraltar one!). Cheers Heywoodg talk 15:37, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Return To Gibraltar (science fiction novel)[edit]

This AfD was closed after the article author blanked the article and it was deleted per WP:CSD#G7. He has now re-created the article under a different title, so I have moved it back to the original title and re-opened the AfD. I am letting you know because you took part in it. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:36, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited March of the Eagles, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Production (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 18:21, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tatler (1901), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Savernake (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.

Hi Heywoodg - Your recent split of the Tatler page made sense, as they are different publications, but it had the unfortunate side effect of damaging hundreds of links. Most existing links to "Tatler" or "The Tatler" are referring to the current magazine, not the historical one, and any new such links are likely to all be to the current magazine. It seems to me it would be better to keep the article title "Tatler" for the current magazine, and come up with another article title for the older magazine. Then the number of links needing fixed would be much reduced. Colonies Chris (talk) 10:00, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I think "Tatler (1709)" would be appropriate for the original journal. That article covers later incarnations too, but they seem to all be descendants from the 1709 original. I can go ahead and rename the articles. Colonies Chris (talk) 08:04, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Tatler --> Tatler (1709) done. Tatler (1901) --> Tatler awaiting administrator intervention - should be done in the next few hours. Colonies Chris (talk) 08:23, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately the admins have made a complete hash of this, so I'm trying to get the mess sorted out. You can safely ignore the cut-and-paste warning below. Colonies Chris (talk) 07:31, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Copy-and-paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Tatler (1709) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Tatler (1901). This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
