You are blocked because it wa found that you have been extensively editing using both this account and anonymously, using your IP. You have to stop that, as that is a form of WP:SOCKING. Vanjagenije (talk) 23:47, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Vanjagenije, I was going to ask why you blocked this editor for editing while logged out since editing while logged out is allowed, as also recently noted in this discussion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Anna Elisabeth Baer[edit]

Hello JaneSwifty,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Anna Elisabeth Baer for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. ubiquity (talk) 16:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Just in case you don't get notified automatically, I responded to your statement contesting speedy deletion on Talk:Anna Elisabeth Baer. Please read. Thanks.

Helena Ehrenmalm[edit]

Hello JaneSwifty!
First of all - thank you for your great work in specifically women's history topics here, and the articles you have started within that subject. I notice those particularly, as that is a subject I myself am interested in and focus in here in Wikipedia. Its wonderful that you start articles from Wikiprojects were they have been requested and I support that.
But, perhaps you should wait until you know more about the subjects, before before you start articles about them. If an article does not clearly state why a person should have their own article and show the relevance of them, then they are in danger of getting deleted any time, regardless if they have been requested on a project or not - that's the sad fact of it (I have learned that by personal experience). Also, make sure that you have correct references.
For example: its great that you started the article of Helena Ehrenmalm, but her article does not state why she was notable (being a landowner and a successful businessperson, even awarded with a medal, does not necessarily merit notability), and the second and the third of your three references are in danger of being deleted at any time, because online-references are not really acceptable unless they are digitalized books.
I'm not saying this because I want to criticize - I only do so because I do not want your articles to be deleted, as I am interested in the same subjects and I am glad they have been created - but unless you know enough of the subjects to show in the article why they are relevant, they would just be deleted again, so in those case, Its best to just let them be in the requests-lists, until some one who knows enough to create articles which cannot be deleted, can make them. I wish you good luck! --Aciram (talk) 23:22, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Attribution, again[edit]

I see you are still not adding the required attribution, as required under the terms of the CC-by-SA license. Please have a look at this edit summary as an example of how it is done. Please let me know if you still don't understand what to do or why we have to do it. Thanks, — Diannaa (talk) 17:08, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

You don't seem to be taking on board the advice which has been provided several times. While I declined to delete Timeline of women in religion because it at least had a link to the source in the edit summary, you're not following the best practices. It will make it far easier for those of us reviewing possible copyright violations a few follow the best practices so we don't have to waste time writing these messages and you don't have to waste time reading them.--S Philbrick(Talk) 14:13, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Eleanor Roosevelt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Adlai Stevenson.

File permission problem with File:GiovannidaVerrazzanoMonument.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:GiovannidaVerrazzanoMonument.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

File copyright problem with File:GiovannidaVerrazzanoMonument.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:GiovannidaVerrazzanoMonument.jpg. However, it is currently missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation.

Stop icon

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to Sojourner Truth, please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube or Sci-Hub, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. Unless you know that marxists.org has the permission of the copyright holder, you should consider that links to works subject to copyright on their website may violate copyright. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 00:37, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

The article Christine Messiant has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Meghan Markle[edit]

Please help - we have the one editor - User:Surtsicna - who refuses to have both a separate ancestry section for Markle (on her page) and also states that her proven ancestors - as published in the Washington Post (page 3) and the New York Times (page 5), are only "trivia" and of no interest to anyone. This editor is particularly irritated by the inclusion of the published references to the shared ancestry of Markle and Prince Harry - i.e. Sir Philip Wentworth and his wife - the great grandparents of Jane Seymour. This editor continues to stir up other editors. Your assistance is always appreciated. 101.182.160.40 (talk) 02:03, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:RiotDeborah.jpg. 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.

Hello, thanks for creating Lolita Roy article. It is really interesting. Perhaps you can expand it a little more and take it to WP:DYK? Please let me know if you have question(s). --Titodutta (contact) 15:44, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Mary Elizabeth Nottingham Day[edit]

Very nice work. Just wanted to let you know, also, that there's a template for the Virginia Women in History here (though I'm ashamed to say it needs updating, which I'll maybe get to in a little while.) So if you're interested in any of the others, please feel free. :-)

Otherwise, keep up the good work and happy editing! --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 17:04, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of LGBT Jews, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Asexual (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

discretionary Sanctions[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to, (a) GamerGate, (b) any gender-related dispute or controversy, (c) people associated with (a) or (b), all broadly construed, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

As noted in the template: this is not a warning, just a courtesy notification. It should not be taken to imply any wrongdoing on your part. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 13:31, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Dante8[edit]

It has become abundantly clear to me that you are Dante8, with all of your copying within Wikipedia, editing while logged out in ways that are problematic, and so on. Do you not understand that you -- not just that account -- were indefinitely blocked? Having been indefinitely blocked means that you should not be editing now. You were supposed to try appealing your block. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 15:22, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

The only improvement I see with you is that, per warnings from Diannaa, you have been giving attribution in the edit history when copying other people's work, and you now communicate just a little (a tiny bit, but at least it's communication). This, however, is still a sock account. And given my issues with you as Dante8 and that you should not be socking, I am very much annoyed. Once I gather evidence, I will be reporting you in a WP:Sock investigation. For now, I have other matters to attend to. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 15:35, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

A page you started (Timeline of pansexual history) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Timeline of pansexual history, JaneSwifty!

Wikipedia editor Innisfree987 just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Hi and thanks for your creation! For the time being, I have merged it back to the main pansexuality article, as that entry is still pretty short and has plenty of room to expand on history--in fact it needs it! So thank you for your additions. Meanwhile this redirect will still be in place, so if/when the pansexuality entry is comprehensive enough to need a spinoff, this entry will still be here for reexpansion. Thanks and happy editing!
