October 2013[edit]

Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at List of Playboy Playmates of 1992. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Manway 04:42, 8 October 2013 (UTC)


My apologies, a source provided me with first hand information. Jpop73 (talk) 04:47, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

It's ok. First hand sources are called "Original Research" around here and is not allowed. WP:NOR Glad you're willing to discuss. Hope you enjoy Wikipedia. Might want to take some time and poke around in our policies so we can avoid this next time. Thanks and regards, --Manway 04:51, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Manway way, I went back and added new citations for animal training and put back in the academic posts, but I did not disturb the Suzi Simpson info.thanksJpop73 (talk) 06:12, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

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

A tag has been placed on File:Headshot of Michael Hutchins.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 "Click here to 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.

Replaceable fair use File:Suzi Simpson head shot.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Suzi Simpson head shot.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Blurred Lines 17:00, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading File:Jschaulblackbrownbears.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 the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

thank you, should i delete themJpop73 (talk) 01:32, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Regarding your comment: in that case, the image may be less replaceable than I first thought. Fair-use images of people and animals can usually be replaced with free alternatives, but if the bear species isn't common in this type of environment an administrator may decide to keep this particular image. You could make a case for retention using Template:Di-replaceable fair use disputed, or editing the talk page. I'm not sure what your reply above is referring to, but I can see no problems with the other images that you have uploaded, except those that other users have already tagged. WP:OTRS confirmation for your free uploads should come through in due course. SuperMarioMan 02:48, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on File:Michaeletalwjane.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Picture of Suzi.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Picture of Suzi.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

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 "Click here to 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.

December 2013[edit]

Hello Jpop73, and welcome to Wikipedia. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 02:12, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Suzi Singstock[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Suzi Singstock, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://forum.burek.com/suzi-simpson-t202991.wap2.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 02:31, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Relocating articles[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable for a number of reasons - it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution, and it creates article "forks", where we have two articles on the same subject. 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 (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). 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. Ben Sutton, Jr has been deleted, because it was a copy of Ben Sutton, Jr. Ff 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. Moonriddengirl (talk) 01:21, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Kodiak bear training with Dr. Jordan Schaul.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Kodiak bear training with Dr. Jordan Schaul.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 07:35, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

I understand you've only been here since October, but I need to ask you to please adhere to Wikipedia standards of encyclopedic WP:TONE. I've run across several of your edits that read like fannish, fawning WP:PUFFERY and non-neutral essaying. Many of your edits also take an inappropriately conversational tone about "Ken" or "John" doing great things. If you need help in adopting a more formal, less fannish writing style, I'm glad to help. --Tenebrae (talk) 16:02, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Jpop. The first thing I would do is have you read the brief, handy guide The Five Pillars of Wikipedia and the guideline at WP:TONE. Let's start with that, and ask me any questions you might have afterward. We all have a learning curve — it takes a while to get the hang of it. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:09, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
One quick thing: We use last names only after the first full mention of the subject's name at the start of the article. We don't use the conversational first name, like "Jordan" at Jordan Schaul.
Also, unless it's a proper noun, we only capitalize the first word of a subhead. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:11, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Also, I've noticed you use raw URLs for footnoted citations. First, i'm glad to see your copious use of citations — that's extremely important and I;m glad you have that down. What we need to do is have you convert those raw URLs to proper citation format. Fortunately, we have ready-made templates to make it fairly easy for us. You can read up on that at Wikipedia:Citation templates
This might seem like a lot to take in at once, so relax and take your time. There's no deadline! --Tenebrae (talk) 21:28, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Treating the article like your resume[edit]

You have added a HOST of uncited OR personal claims, you removed tags and did much more to once agin make your page blurby and promotional. If you continue to treat your Wikipedia page as your resume, I'm going asking an admin to topic-ban you from that page. --Tenebrae (talk) 08:37, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

What can be done to comply with your wishes and to remove the tag. May I give you more referenced material? Thank you. --Jpop73

This page indicates that the topic graduated with a PhD from the Ohio State University and was a DVM student http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/author/jschaul/ as does this http://www.cvma.net/images/cvmapdf/WUMorishita.pdf http://www.biodiversitygroup.org/about/board.html (this includes previous education BA and MS degrees)

--Jpop73

The cite http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/author/jschaul/ is already in the article and seems to confirm much of what needs confirmed, including where born and raised. National Geo is a generally an impeccable source. Yet that particular page may not be written by editorial staff — it's hard to tell, since it looks as if theNation Geo website just posted a CV without editorial oversight. Is that the case? --Tenebrae (talk) 00:16, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

The bio is updated regularly and the CV is provided by the topic/subject. It is fact checked by the staff editors, however, as there was an issue with one of the subject's affiliations--- Conservation Science Institute, which was pulled as it was inadvertently linked to the Pew Charitable Trust when the CV was submitted 4 years ago. The CSI is a grant recipient of PCT funding, but it read on the CSI website as though the individuals were recipients and that was an inadvertent oversight by several people. Do you need scanned transcripts sent the verify the place of study. That can be arranged.

With due respect, I'm not sure you understand how verification for Wikipedia works. A friendly suggestion: Read WP:NOR, the policy regarding original research and scanned documents uploaded to self-published sites. In any case, if National Geo says somewhere that that page is fact-checked by staff editors, then it's useable. But I'm sure you can understand how we can't just take the word of an anonymous person here that it's fact-checked. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:27, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Can you provide an example of a page regarding biographical information on anyone in any popular web publication that says the information is fact checked? As I understand this, you are suggesting that every person with credentials from a degree granting institution should have their credentials removed from their biography as the information has not been verified. To whom and what email address can a National Geographic staff member send a verification notice to Wikipedia confirming the information for the subject/topic? Furthermore, do I need to now pull information from other pages I created which do not specifically cite references verifying degree earned for individuals?

Journalistic interviews and articles in publications ranging from The New York Times to the Des Moines Register are good sources of biographical information. Pages that are obviously supplied by the subject, like speaker-bureau biographies, are not.
RE: "do I need to now pull information from other pages I created which do not specifically cite references verifying degree earned for individuals?" The answer is: Absolutely. Making unverified claims of supposed educational credits is extremely irresponsible and a direct violation of Wikipedia policy on biographies of living persons.--Tenebrae (talk) 01:00, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. But where in the NY Times, for example, does it say that the editors fact checked a specific biography? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpop73 (talkcontribs)

I don't even know how to answer that question, and it sounds as if you're being disingenuous if you truly believe The New York Times doesn't fact-check journalistic stories. The only other types of biographies I know of on the paper's website are film/TV-related content that the website syndicates from AllMovie / Rovi, which takes responsibility for its content.
This article may be better off if the subject himself were not trying to use it for his own purposes. It's disrespectful to the idea of a neutral and objective encyclopedia, and it's distasteful to see someone using Wikipedia for self-promotion. --Tenebrae (talk) 03:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

The tag that you added asks for help in improving the article, which is what I am trying to accomplish. Hence, I'm asking for help or suggestions for how to add neutrality and objectivity to the article. What specifically is biased or subjective that you would like removed from the article and I will try my best to fix it? In addition, you say that the New York Times fact checks stories and you are making as assumption that National Geographic editors don't. So far, based on your response, we don't have proof either way. Like I said, I can bring this to the attention of National Geographic, if you provide me with an email address to correspond with so that I can send you the response from them. Again, I don't think the issue is about what I believe, but as you even indicated, what is verifiable and what is not. I'm trying to comply with your wishes and I would appreciate some fairness. I thought that this editorial oversight was intended to make the article better and not about passing judgement on the suspected intentions of anyone. I'm trying to make the article less promotional and I would appreciate some specific directives so that I can improve this article and others that I have created. Thank you.

It's clear you haven't read WP:BLP or WP:VERIFY or you would know that personal email between editors is in no way, shape or form the kind of publicly accessible reliable source that Wikipedia requires. As for the other matter, please read WP:COI.
The National Geo page has no byline. It's clearly your resume. If you can't find sources other than your resume to support claims in the article, that should be a red flag.--Tenebrae (talk) 23:25, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Everything was cited with reference to websites from academic appointments to board service. Some activities may have been for a finite period of time, but regardless, your condescension is not appreciated. You may know Wikipedia policy, but it seems you are clearly unaware of academic policy. You can't get an academic appointment without having a CV (resume) reviewed. If you see your role as editor here to be one of helping contributors, you missed the boat. You obviously have no interest in really helping to improve the article, or protecting the integrity of Wikipedia; it appears you are simply on a "power trip" trying to give people a difficult time. Hence, this is a waste of energy and a negative experience. It is also disappointing to learn that a so called Wikipedia "Editor" is the one with the subjective bias. I have enjoyed contributing to Wikipedia, but this correspondence has been perhaps the least constructive of discussions, I have had in recent time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpop73 (talkcontribs)

Please sign your posts, please indent your posts, and please familiarize yourself with the Wikipedia policies and guidelines to which I have repeatedly have linked for your perusal. If you cannot read much less follow these policies and guidelines, it is hard to say how any discussion can be constructive.
Your ability to get an academic appointment has nothing to do with Wikipedia, and using Wikipedia as a promotional vehicle for yourself is antithetical to this altruistic free encyclopedia's mission. Additionally, your false and gratuitously personal allegations violate good-faith and civility guidelines. If you cannot find objective, third-party verification of particular claims and instead rely on user-generated content supplied to a magazine, you are violating Wikipedia policies. It has nothing to do me or any other editor if you cannot follow policies and guidelines. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:01, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

The subject already has the academic appointments. Clearly you haven't even reviewed the biography that you claim is unreferenced by third parties. Please read the biography. The point that I was making was that the the subject's CV was obviously fact checked not only by National Geographic, but by academic institutions for which they serve as a faculty member, which counters your argument. Since you seem to know so much about Wikipedia policy, please advise me as to where I can submit a grievance over your conduct and your allegations that the subject is using anything for promotional purposes. What is antiethical is your disregard for a contributor's effort to follow Wikipedia policies and your continued unwillingness to help them improve the article even when specific citations of a third party nature have been provided. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpop73 (talkcontribs)

There is nothing obvious or even indicative that the National Geographic page you note is part of the magazine's editorial-staff purview. Many magazines, even those as illustrious as Forbes, have user-generated content on their websites. And a non-bylined resume that is clearly not an article throws a red flag. You even concede above, in this discussion, that the content in question is user-generated: "The bio is updated regularly and the CV is provided by the topic/subject."
You can look up procedures for mediation, arbitration and much else. Though I would caution that admins, who can track IP addresses to, say, educational institutions, take a dim view of WP:COI editing. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:37, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Jordan Schaul 2[edit]

In answer to your question: I don't know where to begin. You seem to have a determination not to learn the core Wikipedia policies or even proper footnoting. We do not give uncited birth dates of living people — the Cleveland Jewish News did not give a birth date, and it also doesn't say Schaul was born in Shaker Heights -- calling someone a "native" can mean either that they were born there or raised there. We don't remove the tag "vague" without clarifying, and "with a degree in biology-psychology" is vague. Which is it? A degree in biology? A degree in psychology? Is this some exotic major called "biology-psychology"?

Wikipedia disallows wikia and other sites of user-generated content, since who knows how reliable any of it is?

You moved a cited fact away from its citation and placed it in a section cited by another source which doesn't mention it at all. And you added an uncited adjunct professorship. And a rawl-URL citatation.

I'm not even going into your apparent refusal to learn basic Manual of Style things, like using the numeral in dates rather than the ordinal, and not using abbreviations of place names like "Hts" for "Heights."

Can you even count the number of policy and MOS violations I've taken the time to explain (a lot of it not for the first time)? I'm not required to go over all these things with you: Each of us on Wikipedia is expected to learn at the very least the Five Pillars of Wikipedia and the basic of footnoting and MOS. Yet I have tried and tried since at least 21:28, 25 March 2014. Go back and read my friendly post to you then. But after all these months — and I spent 11 days with you in November about all this — and your apparent obstinacy over learning the basics has worn me out. I cannot keep explaining. When you make inappropriate edits and I or another editor remove them, show good faith that we have our reasons and aren't taking 20 minutes to write them all down for you as I've done here now. --Tenebrae (talk) 23:36, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Dear (talk) 23:36, 26 February 2015 (UTC) That is fair, I appreciate the thoroughness, but yes that is the name of the degree biology-psychology (not biological psychology or Psychological biology.

I'm sure the content was accurate and that you'll find a third-party source. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:51, 19 January 2016 (UTC) Thanks, I'm a slow learner as you know, but I'm trying to follow policy. I'm the type who has a great trouble reading manuals and the like. I do get ahead of myself but I don't intentionally try not to follow protocol. And came across the live help chat, which has been helpful as well. thanksJpop73 (talk) 22:52, 19 January 2016 (UTC) Hi Tenebrae --Tenebrae, I deleted the personal life commentary on the page because I realized that mention of Aspergers' could be defamatory, as someone pointed out to me and I noted that in the edits. I hope that is OK. Please let me know. ThanksJpop73 (talk) 22:49, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 "Click here to 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 01:50, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Logo for NWCF.png[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on File:Logo for NWCF.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.nsefuwildlife.com/. 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. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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 "Click here to 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.

Coe Lewis[edit]

Hi, Jpop. I honestly can't imagine why she would be deleted — The Bob and Coe Show is on KGB-FM, probably one of the top 4o or 50 stations in the US in terms of market reach, and she has 6,600 Google hits including papers like the San Diego Reader. If things were cited, and you seem to have that part down, my guess — and this is only a guess — is that the WP:TONE might have seemed promotional or that the cites were raw URLs and not formatted.

My suggestion is: You can create a page from your user page called Jpop/Sandbox, in which you can recreate the article without posting it formally to Wikipedia, and invite other editors to come by and offer suggestions and comments. I and I'm sure others would be glad to help. --Tenebrae (talk) 14:37, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

OK, I've just seen Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Coe Lewis. I'm not sure why only 15 Google hits came up — I mean, I can see there were limiters installed in the search, but I don't know why — but I found more. I've never heard that someone has to be nationally known to be in Wikipedia — the mayor of, say, Minneapolis isn't nationally known — so I'm not sure that was a valid reason. I still think creating a draft in a sandbox is a good next step. --Tenebrae (talk) 14:40, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Logo for NWCF.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Logo for NWCF.png. 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. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 02:24, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Minnesota Public Radio[edit]

Maybe I can help. What do you mean "was quoted"? Like a transcript of a radio interview? --Tenebrae (talk) 15:57, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Okey-doke. Unless you're thinking about using it to footnote something, we can add it as an External link. Let me know which and I can do it and walk you through it, although a deadline thing came up and I'll be off WIki for about 20 minutes.--Tenebrae (talk) 16:05, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, I'm back. --Tenebrae (talk) 16:37, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Sure. Just let know which you want to do, footnote or "External link", and I can do it and give you directions. It's pretty easy. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:32, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Jpop. Y'know, it's not really something appropriate for an encyclopedia article &mash; the subject arguing pro or con something and urging people in one direction or another. But I would add the interview as an "External link," so that anyone who's interested can go to it. I'll start that section. As you'll see and can replicate, the section takes the same templates as footnotes do, only with a bullet at the beginning and no "ref" tags. --Tenebrae (talk) 00:27, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Done. This one was actually a bit more complicated than most. Instead of using the "cite news" template used for periodicals, or the "cite book" template, or the "cite web" template used for sites that don't fit into those two categories, we had to use "cite audio", since it's a radio interview. And because the subject's name is not part of the title, I added "(Interview)" to the "publisher=" field, before the name of the publisher (i.e., Minnesota Public Radio). I also found that Archive.org couldn't archive the audio, so I used the next-most-popular archiving website, Webcitation.org, where it worked.
I hope by looking at this EL example, plus reading the explanation above, that you'll be able to insert ELs into articles, and that by going to either of those archiving sites and following the pretty simple directions that you'll archive all footnotes and ELs that you add. One caution: Once you go beyond four to six ELs, you're in danger of linkfarming, which is frowned on. I'm here if you have any questions! --Tenebrae (talk) 00:38, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:04, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi, Jpop. Since the page was deleted, there's no way to access it in order to tell what might have caused that. I looked on your sandbox to see if a version of it was there, though, and I can tell you right offhand that Pam Johnson-Bennett might also get deleted if you use IMDb and Amazon links as references; if you use WP:DATED terms like "currently"; and if it reads like a resume. Hope this helps. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:31, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Headshot of Amy Andersen.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Headshot of Amy Andersen.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 20:43, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Sujoy Banerjee, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Joseph2302 (talk) 19:18, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

jordan Schaul page[edit]

Hi, Jpop. I'm not sure, but I believe any editor can voluntarily pledge to topic-ban themselves from editing a particular article. I haven't run across this before, but you might try posting a query outlining your and the other editor's concerns at Wikipedia:Conflict of interest/Noticeboard. You might also make a case at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jordan Schaul (2nd nomination) — and do feel free to mention that you've worked with me over the last year or two on trying to make the article read neutrally and encyclopedically, including with a Criticism section. (Since I've edited the article, I haven't weighed in on the deletion discussion. But I hope these two suggestions help._ --Tenebrae (talk) 03:13, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Deletion pending for File:Jessica Denay headshot.png[edit]

Hello, Jpop73. Some time ago, a file you uploaded — File:Jessica Denay headshot.png — was tagged with {{OTRS pending}}, indicating that you (or perhaps the copyright holder if you did not create this image) submitted a statement of permission to permissions-en@wikimedia.org. Though there is often a backlog processing messages received at this address, we should have received your message by now.

  • If you have not submitted (or forwarded) a statement of permission, please send it immediately to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so.
  • If you have already sent this message, it is possible that there was a problem receiving it. Please re-send it to permissions-en@wikimedia.org and let us know at the OTRS noticeboard that you have done so.

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Eden Sassoon, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

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.

Replaceable fair use File:Headshot of Robert Kovacik.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Headshot of Robert Kovacik.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Majora (talk) 03:11, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Head Shot of Dee Ocleppo.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Head Shot of Dee Ocleppo.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the file appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted content borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

Donny Park, I've already forwarded screen shots to my attorney of this and your previous attempts to cyber bully me with your accusations. I've discussed your behavior with a FB administrator and they found you to be liable on numerous fronts and are looking in to it. I may not know the protocol for advancing a grievance against a Wikipedia editor through an official Wikipedia-vetted process, but you have repeatedly tried to harass me, make false claims and treat me with disrespect. As I mentioned, I was trying to find out how to translate my page so that I could do it for other people. And I deleted it knowing that there are Wikipedia editors out there who have nothing better to do than try to discredit a me, and quite frankly having a Wikipedia page of my own was more of problem than having one.

I'm told by this very same administrator that you and perhaps others have singled me out because I had a page/article on myself and it clearly irks other editors, if another editor is deemed more notable than they are. Rather than embrace people who might have interesting backgrounds, you choose to be threatened by them and create so much chaos and conflict that you certainly do a fantastic job of turning people away from joining the Wikipedia editorial community. There is no amount of money or recognition in the world that would entice someone to become a more regular contributor, given this kind of treatment.

Although the page was reviewed and approved numerous times you and your editor cronies went out of your way discredit myself and the page and several notable and distinguished people in different fields. Then I made the mistake of checking a box indicating that I was compensated for creating a page for someone else. In an effort to respect the integrity of the Wikipedia community and requests to divulge such information, I was met with a full-on effort to expunge my page and those of people I created. Now when I explain what happened to people who seek me out to help them with a page, they are quick to decline my offer to help. Academia is competitive and ruthless and political and this is ridiculous. You are going to go after me anyways, why not retain my attorney and why not publicize this treatment. I'd be receptive to your feedback as biased as it may be. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpop73 (talkcontribs) 03:06, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

I've no problem with empty legal threats like this but then you're not the first to issue me with such especially on Sunday. As with your "friends", whose problem is it when articles fail notability guidelines; maybe you and they should've thought this through better and but good luck anyways like I'm going to be intimidated by little man like you.

March 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), such as at User_talk:Robert_McClenon#Question_about_MfD, please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

I have since manually added your signature with the correct timestamp to the post, however, please do try and remember to sign posts that you make on talk pages. Of course, if this was just a one-off/mistake please disregard as we all make mistakes from time to time. AGF --TheSandDoctor (talk) 15:37, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
