How you can help

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later."

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here. You can also leave a message on my talk page.--PMDrive1061 (talk) 03:28, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

2014 & 2015 in heavy metal music[edit]

What's your problem with hostile edit summaries? For example, If Death Angel and Biohazard (band) cannot be listed in this 2015 section, then neither can anyone else, as they didn't release 2015 album). Death Angel were moved to 2016, because they give news about their album writing process and they confirmed it will be released in 2016. And Biohazard were never added to the 2015 article. So what's your problem? One more thing – Amazon and iTunes aren't reliable sources. So don't add content with whatever sources you find. You should learn how to correctly add content to the table and sources, because whenever you add something, me and other editors have to correct information and fix everything that you add. P.S. if you're going to reply then do it here and NOT on my talk page. – Sabbatino (talk) 11:16, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Reply - @Sabbatino:, there is no music album out there which has a prime direction of being released in 2014 nor 2015. My additions of Death Angel and Biohazard to 2015 in metal were removed, because there was no plan to release those two albums that year. This is why the section should be removed at the end of a given year. --Jax 0677 (talk) 18:38, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Category redirects[edit]

Per WP:R#CATEGORY, do not create inter-category redirects, by adding a line #REDIRECT Category:target category to a category page as you continue to do. Articles added to a "redirected" category do not show up in the target category, preventing proper categorization. What's worse, since redirected categories do not become "red links", editors won't be aware even when they add an article to a redirected category. Please use "soft" redirects instead. They are created by placing {{Category redirect}} in the category page. See Wikipedia:Categories for discussion#Redirecting categories.

Also, WP:CHEAP does not apply to category redirects as the redirects are not maintained in the same manner. While misspellings of an article may be helpful to take one immediately to the correct article, misspellings of categories only tend to clutter a system in which both bots and volunteers must watch out for and correct. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 17:25, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

You are creating more work for everyone by placing templates into category redirects rather than their proper categories. As opposed to article redirects, which will take you to the correct article regardless, items put into a redirected category don't automatically get placed into the proper category. You will find these in Category:Wikipedia non-empty soft redirected categories. Also, unlike articles, one cannot add categories to templates using HotCat, therefore adding categories has to be done manually. If one is placed in the wrong category, it won't be fixed automatically like an article when using HotCat. While bots do eventually take care of miscategorization into a category redirect, it often takes weeks, leaving volunteers to do the work by going into the aforementioned category to ensure articles, templates, etc. are not sitting in an incorrect category for too long. Category redirects are for those who might inadvertently place something into a wrong category; no one should place articles, templates, or anything else in the wrong category on purpose as it is detrimental to other editors who monitor such things. So please, when putting templates into categories, such as Category:British musician templates, please check that it's not going into a inappropriate category so more work isn't created for others. Category redirects are NOT the same thing as article redirects and more care needs to be taken when using them. Thank you. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 23:46, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Michael Galeota.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Michael Galeota.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Occupation of MNWR[edit]

Hi Thanks for walking back archiving to 5d. Yesterday I moved it to 7 from 8, but nothing has been auto archiving. I've never understood those templates, but I think the system is broken. If you know how to make 'em go, could you look into it please? Archiving would sure help manage the talk page if we can wake it up so it works. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 18:28, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

You really shouldn't do moves such as this. There is actual page history for an article for Angelic Encounters which is now being inappropriately attributed to Undead. Unholy. Divine.. As mentioned on your talk page before, moving pages just to create different redirects is a bad idea. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 01:07, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm specifically referring to Angelic Encounters, which is not new because it was created in October 2006 and not changed to a redirect until November 2010. That entire history is now incorrectly attributed to Undead. Unholy. Divine. That should be fixed. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 15:06, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Westlake High School (Texas)[edit]

WP:BLP1E tells us not to make articles about people known for one event, WP:BLPCRIME tells us not to discuss by name non notable people accused of crimes. WP:NOTNEWS tells us not to discuss ongoing events unless there is widespread ongoing coverage. School article guidelines tell us not to name non notable staff or students and also not to discuss subjects that are primarily of interest to the local population. As one of the coordinators of the school project on Wikipedia I watch thousands of school articles. I can tell you that a story like this arises a couple times a month. Sadly, stories regarding student/staff affairs have become rather commonplace. I doubt this is of much interest outside Austin. Sad, but true. Please do not replace this bit without consensus, which of course you are welcome to seek at the article's talk page. Thanks. John from Idegon (talk) 17:21, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
