Orphaned non-free media (Image:Windows 2000 REGEDIT.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Windows 2000 REGEDIT.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 07:55, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Mister, please corrigate this Cartesian-coordinate-system. You can't orientate the axis (x-axis and y-axis) in two directions. Its an orientation! The axis should only be orientated in the "+ direction". Thank you, 213.61.200.209 (talk) 16:04, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Identity query[edit]

List of archive formats[edit]

Hi, you reformatted the above page in http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_archive_formats&diff=11855951&oldid=11855884 Doing so you added an "Official name" column. I understand that if there are several names, we would want (at least preferably) the official one. But some formats like bzip2 have no official name. Having a column with that name is misleading. You included a note that the official name is debatable, but I don't think this addresses the fact that bzip2's entry is misleading. Could we rename that to just "Name"? Perhaps with a reference saying this should only be the official name, if one exists? --Chealer (talk) 01:13, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

That's what Wikipedia is (was) all about. If you can improve the page, please do. I don't know what my motivations were six years ago, but from the look of it, I was just trying to improve what was a very plain page, not establish a doctrine.—Kbolino (talk) 18:04, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

GUID Partition Table Scheme[edit]

Hi Kbolino, I saw that you were the creator of the File:GUID Partition Table Scheme.svg picture, which is used in various articles on the GUID Partition Table.

While the picture is great in general, there is one thing, which is misleading and might cause faulty implementations in disk tools.

Your picture implicitly suggests, that the location of the various table elements is fixed and can be addressed under certain LBA numbers. While the numbers are correct for most configurations today, they will not in the more or less distant future, and thereby any code relying on these fixed numbers may cause problems in the future. In reality, only LBA 0 and 1 are fixed, all other LBA addresses (2..34 in your picture) depend on the parameters defined in the GPT header. (I have already seen descriptions in the net like "LBA 3 should contain ...", which is not correct as per the GPT standard.)

It would be great if you could provide a corrected version of your picuture, which does not mention the LBA address values 2..34 explicitly, but indicates that these addresses depend on values stored in LBA 1. I don't know if there's enough room for the formula, but some arrows indicating the dependencies may do as well.

Thanks for you consideration. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 11:12, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Kbolino. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:02, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:District of Columbia flag.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:District of Columbia flag.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:31, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
