Using Default Reversion Messages[edit]

You were correct to revert my edit to the Stargate SG-1 article in that it was inaccurate. I provided a source I used as a reference for my edit in the edit note. The source was wrong. Wikipedia states when editing a page that: "If you are undoing an edit that is not vandalism, explain the reason in the edit summary rather than using only the default message." You did not do this and had I not done further research in the matter (which is why I went back, to correct my edit) then I would have assumed you were some kind of idiot and put the edit back in (despite your being correct - I wouldn't have known see). Presumably this is why Wikipedia has this guideline that you are not to use default messages, so this kind of thing doesn't happen. I think you regular editing folk call it "edit wars". No doubt the wise wizards who placed this guideline there did it for this reason and I humbly submit it would be good practice for you to follow it.

Wachowski Brothers[edit]

The proper way to move an article from one title to another is by using the "Move article" link. That way, the edit history moves along with the article. -Branddobbe 05:00, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

"Get a life" comment?[edit]

You seem to attract some of the nicest people on Wikipedia to your page...how do you do it? ;) --SandChigger 17:27, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Ra Picture[edit]

When you mean "citation," does that mean I should simply add a link to where the original picture can be found?? If so, where do I add that in the entry? Sorry to sound like such a Wiki n00b (lol!!), but I've never had to cite my sources before... >.< --Promus Kaa 03:30, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I can't link directly to the picture, since Patrick's site uses Flash to show pages, but I can link this much: [1] Where exactly would I put that in the thumbnail's "window?" Maybe you could do it now that you have a link...LOL!! --Promus Kaa 19:05, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Stoneburner.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Stoneburner.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 17:15, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project. You have been identified as a project member and your input as to this matter would be welcomed at WT:CVU#Inactive.3F and at the deletion debate. Thank you!

Redirect of Discrepancies (Dune)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Discrepancies (Dune), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Discrepancies (Dune) is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Discrepancies (Dune), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. CSDWarnBot 06:30, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Dune notes[edit]

Hey there, sorry you had to go back and take out "purportedly" (which I misspelled, clearly) in all those articles; I agree with you and hate all the "claim" and "supposedly" bull, but I was afraid of a mass revert after the recent reverts/changes at Sandworms and Hunters over this old issue. — TAnthonyTalk 00:03, 25 November 2007 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Ori shield takes collision.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ori shield takes collision.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid.

Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:PJshield.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:PJshield.jpg. 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) 11:23, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for Image:Stoneburner.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Stoneburner.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:33, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
