Welcome[edit]

Welcome!
Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. The following links will help you begin editing on Wikipedia:

Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia:

  • Respect intellectual property rights - do not copy and paste text or images directly from other websites.
  • Maintain a neutral point of view when editing articles - this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add troublesome content to any article, such as: copyrighted text, advertising or promotional messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such information or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism, doing so will result your account being blocked from editing.

The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome!

Image copyright problem with Image:Karakachan.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Karakachan.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 19:33, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Regarding your additions to Bulgarian Shepherd Dog[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg Please do not add copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 21:41, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Please stop adding copyrighted material into Wikipedia. As noted above, Wikipedia can not accept such material. Thank you. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 22:02, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Re your message: If you wish to copy content from your website into Wikipedia, you must license your content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License. You must add notice to the external website, not just a note here on Wikipedia releasing the content. Please see Wikipedia:Copyright violations for additional details. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 00:38, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Re your message: As I stated in my previous message to you, the question is not that if you own the material on the website, but that you have properly licensed the material for use on Wikipedia. You must license your images and website material under the GNU Free Documentation License for it to be legal for Wikipedia to accept either item. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 18:38, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Semperviva[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Semperviva, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.save-foundation.net/semperviva/home.htm. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 14:18, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problems[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Hello. Concerning your contribution, Semperviva, please note that Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images obtained from other web sites or printed material, without the permission of the author(s). This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.save-foundation.net/semperviva/home.htm. As a copyright violation, Semperviva appears to qualify for deletion under the speedy deletion criteria. Semperviva has been tagged for deletion, and may have been deleted by the time you see this message.

If you believe that the article or image is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) then you should do one of the following:

  • If you have permission from the author, leave a message explaining the details at Talk:Semperviva and send an email with the message to "permissions-en (at) wikimedia (dot) org". See Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for instructions.
  • If a note on the original website states that re-use is permitted under the GFDL or released into the public domain leave a note at Talk:Semperviva with a link to where we can find that note.
  • If you own the copyright to the material: send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en(at)wikimedia(dot)org or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GFDL, and note that you have done so on Talk:Semperviva.

However, for textual content, you may simply consider rewriting the content in your own words. Thank you. Please feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions. Coppertwig (talk) 15:27, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Semperviva[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Semperviva requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Regarding the Semper article[edit]

It appears you copied material directly from another website for this article. This would constitute a copyright violation, and isn't permitted by our rules. The only way such behavior is allowed is if you actually own the copyright on the website in question. If that's the case, then you need to follow these steps. Best, --Bfigura (talk) 21:53, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Karak. The issue here is that I (and other editors) can't just take your word for it. (Not that I disbelieve you, but I can't verify your identity, given that it's relatively easy to make claims online). To verify that you do own the copyright in question, you need to follow these steps. Best, --Bfigura (talk) 20:29, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Hi John, if you add a note permitting reuse under the GFDL at the original source, that should suffice. (When you create the article, you might want to leave a note in the edit summary stating that reuse is permitted under the GFDL, with a link to the website). You'll still probably get a message from an automated robot, but you can ignore it and just note that the reuse is permitted. As a reminder though, you'll still need to make sure the article meets our policies of notability, neutrality, and verifiability. Hope that helps, --Bfigura (talk) 21:12, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Yep. (Although do bear in mind that the tone would probably need to be made more encyclopedic before it's used to create an article). If you want to create a draft article, you could do so by placing the page in your userspace (for ex: User:Karak1/DraftArticle), making revisions there, then moving it into article space once it's ready. (I can help with any of that, just let me know). Best, --Bfigura (talk) 21:54, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Sure, I'll post my comments on the talk page of your draft article. (PS, when leaving messages on talk pages, you can sign your post my typing four tildes '~~~~'. It'll leave your name and the time/date). Best, --Bfigura (talk) 00:30, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

April 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from pages that you have created yourself, as you did with Semperviva. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, then please place {{hangon}} on the page (please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag) and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. Ashanda (talk) 22:03, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
