Image without license[edit]

Unspecified source/license for Image:Sexualhealing3.jpg[edit]

Copyright-excl.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Sexualhealing3.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Replaceable fair use Image:Sarah_kernochan_1977_Berkeley_Publisher_publicity.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Sarah_kernochan_1977_Berkeley_Publisher_publicity.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. 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. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 10:32, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Your edits to Constantin Brancusi[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that in order for links to work, the punctuation must go outside the brackets. For instance, look at [[Constantin Brâncuşi,]], which generates Constantin Brâncuşi, a link to a non-existent page. The correct link would be [[Constantin Brâncuşi]], which links to Constantin Brâncuşi. It gets easier with each edit.

On another note, I would draw your attention to the policy on verifiability-- the content you've added could be seen as fairly "sensational", so it is particularly important that you provide citations to reliable sources. If you have any questions, just look at the welcome page, the quick guide to editing, or ask me on my talk page. Thank you, Lithoderm 04:54, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Gidlow's Round Table claims[edit]

Interesting, but similar claims have been made, for instance see [1]. You might find this amusing. Right now it's just a short article in a newspaper, we should wait until we see something more substantial and can include commentary by archaeologists, etc. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 15:03, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Hello, Jim15936, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of your edits have not conformed to Wikipedia's verifiability policy, and may be removed if they have not yet been. Wikipedia articles should refer only to facts and interpretations that have been stated in print or on reputable websites or other forms of media. Always remember to provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is likely to be challenged, or it may be removed. Wikipedia also has a related policy against including original research in articles. As well, all new biographies of living people must contain at least one reliable source.

If you are stuck and looking for help, please see the guide for citing sources or come to the new contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

April 2012[edit]

Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Chuck Barris. Thank you. Cresix (talk) 00:29, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 13[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Alexandra Tydings, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tantric (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.

August 2012[edit]

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Rosie O'Donnell. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Cresix (talk) 20:24, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at Rosie O'Donnell, you may be blocked from editing. Mephistophelian (talk) 20:50, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by inserting unpublished information or your personal analysis into an article, as you did at A League of Their Own, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Thank you. -- Doniago (talk) 13:43, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

December 2012[edit]

Thanks for your contribution to D.B. Cooper. However, I would like to caution you again about adding personal opinions to your entries; Wikipedia frowns on that. Also, I have modified your content to reflect what is actually stated in the source material. But thank you for calling attention to the New York article, which I had not previously seen. DoctorJoeE talk to me! 15:27, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Jurassic Park (film), without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. -- DonIago (talk) 12:42, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
