How to verify copyright permission for article Kennan Ward[edit]

Hello, Kennanward.

Thank you for your interest in donating material from http://www.kennanward.com/newabout to Wikipedia. Since we do not currently have a method in place to verify the identity of account holders at account creation, we must verify such donations through external processes. The article has been blanked to allow time for that verification to proceed.

The simplest way to verify is to place a release on that external website putting the material into public domain or releasing it under a license compatible with GFDL, which permits modification and reuse, even commercially, as long as authorship credit is given. This release is irrevocable and must continue to be displayed, or the material will need to be removed. A statement such as the following, including the link to the GFDL, would be sufficient: "The contents of this website (or page, if you are specifically releasing one section) are available for modification and reuse under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3 and later." If you decide to take this route, please put a link to that release on Talk:Kennan Ward so we can restore the contents.

Alternatively, you may choose to send an e-mail to the Wikimedia Foundation from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GFDL. There is a boilerplate release form at Wikipedia:Declaration of consent for all enquiries which can be helpful. Please provide a clear link to the website in your e-mail and specify by name the article on Wikipedia in which the material is being used. Once your e-mail is received and processed by a member of the Communications Committee, the article's contents will be restored if your release is legally sufficient. Please make a note that you've done this on Talk:Kennan Ward to help guard against premature deletion of the page. You can compose a note or very simply paste the following on the talk page, brackets and all: {{OTRS pending}}

If you decide you don't wish to release the material into public domain or under the terms of GFDL, you are welcome to rewrite the text from scratch at this temporary page. As long as the material is otherwise compliant with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, it will be used to replace the previous contents. Please leave a note at Talk:Kennan Ward saying you have done so.

If you are not familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, you may wish to review Wikipedia:Starting an article or Wikipedia:Your first article. If you are closely related to the subject matter, you may also want to read our conflict of interest guidelines to get an idea how best to proceed. It may be necessary once permission is verified to address other concerns in the text, if it is otherwise inconsistent with our policies and guidelines.

We apologize for the additional steps necessary, but as copyright is a matter of legal concern, we must ensure that we not only protect the rights of copyright holders, but also guard the Wikipedia project against inadvertent infringement.

The article will be revisited in about a week to see what additional steps have been taken or may be necessary. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know at my talk page. We also have a help desk which is typically manned around the clock by volunteers.

Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:16, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Update regarding copyright concern[edit]

Since we do not yet have verification of permission by the processes set out above and sufficient time has passed since the placement of the notice, the article has been deleted for copyright concerns. This deletion is not necessarily permanent. If you have already sent a letter to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL), the article will be restored when that letter is received and processed by the Wikimedia Communications committee. Likewise, if you have not yet sent a letter, you still may (or resend it, if you believe your original may have been lost), and the article will be restored when that letter is received and processed.

As Wikipedia does not require proof of identity on account creation, it is essential that we receive external proof of authorization in order to ensure that we remain compliant with US Copyright law. It is also essential that we verify that copyright holders understand the extent of the release they are authorizing, in that GFDL permits modification and reuse in any forum, even commercial publication, as long as authorship credit is maintained.

If you have questions about the verification procedure, please feel free to contact me at my talk page. Alternatively, you might address them at the talk page of the copyright policy, which is generally monitored by volunteers experienced in processing such matters. Thank you.

How to verify permission[edit]

Hi. As explained above, if you don't want to put a GFDL release on the web site, you do have the option of sending an e-mail from an e-mail address connected with the website announcing that you are releasing it under GFDL. Please see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for specific steps. If any of that is unclear to you or you need assistance with it, please let me know at my talk page. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 02:49, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Your email has been received and replied to. Please make sure you read all the way to the bottom.
You don't have to release your entire site under the GFDL; you can just say "the text of this page" or "the text written in blue" or whatever. Stifle (talk) 10:10, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Kennan Ward[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Kennan Ward, 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 blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

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 page 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 page that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

February 2009[edit]

Information.svg You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved, as you did at Kennan Ward. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your band, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest.

Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged. If you create such an article, it might be listed on articles for deletion. Deletion is not certain, but many feel strongly that you should not start articles about yourself. This is because independent creation encourages independent validation of both significance and verifiability. All edits to articles must conform to Wikipedia:No original research, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, and Wikipedia:Verifiability.

If you are not "notable" under Wikipedia guidelines, creating an article about yourself may violate the policy that Wikipedia is not a personal webspace provider and would thus qualify for speedy deletion. If your achievements, etc., are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later. (See Wikipedia:Wikipedians with articles.) Thank you. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 21:32, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Interesting, a simple response in a professional manner would have served better than Immediate Blocks. I tried to cancel my account as I do not want to be associated with Wikipedia but was unable. Please remove my account. Good Luck.--Kennanward (talk) 19:32, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

Dear Wikimedia, I am uncertain why in 2009 I was blocked and censored for spam when I truly was just submitting information about myself? To be blocked for life from wikimedia is a sentence beyond an honest mistake. Please reconsider the contributions I have made to society as an artist, photographer and cinematographer. I am sorry I did not understand the editorial process, I had imagined Wikimedia was similar to what I submitted to other media at the time and my contributions were going to an editor who would select content. I had submitted several times to magazine articles, written about me, and did not fully understand how Wikimedia handled information. Please unblock my name and reputation. Thank you, Kennan Ward Kennanward (talk) 16:07, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Well, we don't actually consider your contributions to society as a reason to block or unblock your account. This is most certainly not a value judgement on you as a person, just a preventative measure to stop you from violating Wikipedia policy. Since you seem to have at least some understanding of what those violations were we should be willing to give you a chance to prove it. Please review the notices above this request and heed the comments of the users below. Welcome back. Beeblebrox (talk) 16:54, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.
You are not allowed to write about yourself here. If you become sufficiently notable someone else will create an article about you. If unblocked, what else would you like to write about? --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 16:37, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. I believe I could contribute to facts about cinematography especially with 5K format filming, digital photography, natural history-biology.

Also, recently I filmed a never before witnessed or filmed animal behavior that will be a feature of the newest Discovery,Planet Earth series, North America to start airing in May of this year.

But, um ... you're not a reliable source, and you may not quote yourself, link to your blogs or websites, introduce original research, etc. How do you intend to source your edits? 4 years ago you said you were leaving Wikipedia for good (since we cannot delete accounts) ... what has changed? (✉→BWilkins←✎) 23:40, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

BWilkins, Thank you for classifying me, "But, um ... you're not a reliable source. Best, Kennan Ward

Beeblebrox,

Thank you,

I hope I get this right this time.

I will start by editing URL links to biological data that is wrong.

Best,
