Block of Meikeric[edit]

Excuse me for my inturruption good sir. My user, meikeric was just block by you for 72 hours. I wish to file a protest against this. I contributed valuable content to two articles. One being the Outer Banks article consisting of information on the seasonality of weather patterns on the Outer Banks due to it's geographical location as well as an external link to a site providing web cams of the Outer Banks. Both of this I feel is relevant and adds quality to this particular article. Unfortunately, I got into a revert war with CutOffTies, as she feels that the external link qualifies as spam. However, this page serves as a good resource to wiki users to get a live view of a place they are interested in that they may not think to search for through traditional sources. Honestly though, isn't this what the spirit of Wikipedia is about? Discovery of resources on the Internet. The other article was about the Wright Brothers National Memorial. I added an external link directly to a web can pointing directly at this memorial. Which I feel is highly relevant and interesting.

Therefore, I respectfully ask that my account be unbanned. However, if you feel that is not the correct action and I should continue to be blocked than I ask that CutOffTies be blocked for the same amount of time as a punishment for revert warring should be dolled out equally.

Thank you for your time, Meikeric —Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.205.14.99 (talk) 22:38, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Dolza from Robotech Macross.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Dolza from Robotech Macross.jpg. 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 website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 04:29, 10 February 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Courcelles 04:29, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Permission for image[edit]

Dear Sir/Madam I am currently in post production on feature film which cost us a total of $2000 it is super low budget and I humbly request the permission of a certain pic from your site because of the low budget nature of the film we only intend it to go into local festivals and can't realistically see it going into anything big, the certain pic is crucial to the plot and there is no other one that exists.

Salve, Kralizec! Could you help me keep an eye on Kevin Coughlin in the next few days?

Fraternal twins[edit]

I'm new to wiki, so I hope I'm using this page correctly! I have noticed that your picture of fraternal twins shows what appears to be monozygotic twins. What evidence do you have that these twins are dizygotic? Has there been genetic testing? Thanks. Stickerella (talk) 19:28, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Twins[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your reply! I would say, with 99.99% certainty, that your twins are monozygotic (identical). Many ob/gyns and ultrasound techs are misinformed about twins, chorions, placentas, etc. They mistakenly believe that two placentas or amnions indicates fraternals, while it can be either. Clues can be found in the fingerprints, ear shape, irises, hair crowns, etc. With your twins, the outside observer can clearly see that they are monozygotic...they are quite obviously identical, though environment is slowly and gradually creating differences in the physical appearance. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, too, now understand that their physical differences do not mean they are fraternals, but mirror image twins (discussed on a recent episode of Ellen). It's just a misunderstanding that caused their mislabelling. Twins are fascinating! I do, however, think that there's a fair bit of misinformation about zygosity floating about, mostly caused by well meaning doctors who tell folks that their infants are fraternal or identical without genetic testing. Thanks for listening! Stickerella (talk) 17:52, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Soviet aircraft carrier Kiev (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Soviet aircraft carrier Kiev (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unneccessary DAB page. Hatnotes now added to the two articles disambiguated here.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

File permission problem with File:Hocking River at Logan, Ohio.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Hocking River at Logan, Ohio.jpg, which you've sourced to Dustin M. Ramsey. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created 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 in|article name}} 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. Sreejith K (talk) 06:19, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Neither party was 'wasting time' in this - the note on the deletion is (I hope) a note to the restoring admin that there weren't any other issues with the image, it was just lacking the otrs ticket. Quite often there will be additional notes (like 'source needed', ORFUD, or other cryptic wikispeak stuff) that give a 'heads up' to other admins about the state of the image.

Please correct the Jabiluka image[edit]

Hi Kralizec, I would like to compliment you on your good work, but would also like to ask if you would correct the name and description of your image of Jabiluka mine. You have named it Ranger 3 which it is not, Jabiluka is a separate lease currently controlled by the same company, but separate all the same. Also your description says that it is part of Kakadu National Park which it is not. It is surrounded by Kakadu as is the Ranger lease and mine, but both leases were created before the park and remain separate from it. Cheers, Owen Djapa Owen 22:34, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Update, since you did not have time to change this I put in a new image which I labelled correctly, so now nothing need be done. Djapa Owen 10:33, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Kralizeci,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk)

Java Scriptus[edit]

This user, whom you blocked in 2009, is asking for an unblock, claiming the alleged vandalism was a misunderstanding (it seems it could have been). He does not appear ever to have been warned about this, either. Could you take a look? Daniel Case (talk) 18:16, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Java scriptus (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · nuke contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) continued to disruptively edit articles after receiving four escalating warnings. Those warnings do not appear on the user's talk page because it was deleted in March 2009. Given the nature of this person's edits (complete with false edit summaries) I am disinclined to believe his or her claims of ignorance, especially since the editor proceeded to do the exact same changes via 76.109.120.66 (talk · contribs · info · WHOIS) once the Java scriptus account was blocked (compare Java scriptus versus 76.109.120.66). — Kralizec!

Abuse Filter on the Article Feedback Tool[edit]

Hey there :). You're being contacted because you're an edit filter manager, At the moment, we're developing Version 5 of the Article Feedback Tool, which you may or may not have heard about. If you haven't; for the first time, this will involve a free-text box where readers can submit comments :). Obviously, there's going to be junk, and we want to minimise that junk. To do so, we're working the Abuse Filter into the tool.

For this to work, we need people to write and maintain filters. I'd be very grateful if you could take a look at the discussion here and the attached docs, and comment and contribute! Thanks :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 18:21, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Urgent Help and Warning[edit]

Urgent Help and Warning: the IP address, 212.121.219.1 is engaging in serious hacking activities, not just simple acts of vandalism in the other Wikipedia encyclopedias.

Warning: the IP address, 212.121.219.1 registered to Oldham MBC public libraries, and which is permanently blocked in English Wikipedia since 2009, is the source of serious hacking activities. Today on 14 May 2012 other vulnerable Wikipedia encyclopedias are under attack from this address where it is not blocked. This source is capable of hacking Wikipedia, as it is the case today in the other Wikipedia encyclopedias, because it has erased the history archives for instance in the Azerbaijan articles of the Wikipedia encyclopedias and is doing it in other country articles as well, which no simple vandal can do. This source is freely roaming and usurping right now.

Can anyone inform the administrators of the other Wikipedia encyclopedias and help them against the IP address, 212.121.219.1, because most of the small Wikipedia encyclopedias are vulnerable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.224.23.137 (talk) 21:55, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

The return of HeadMouse[edit]

I read through HeadMouse and Knotslanding's post history, and I agree, they're very close to what we're seeing out of Crazy Blue Eyes. At the very minimum, it passes the duck test. I'm all but tempted to go ahead and file a SPI report on this one. Thoughts, opinions? --McDoobAU93 04:53, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

My thought and opinion is that you need to stop trying to make shit up to find a reason to attack me just because you don't like my edits on an article. I have been a member on Wikipedia for a long time now. I have edited many articles. Now just because YOU have a problem with some of my edits on this article, you're trying to claim some crap to get me blocked. Why don't you find something better to do with your time. Crazy Blue Eyes (talk) 05:11, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
P.S. Here is your duck test. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crazy Blue Eyes (talkcontribs) 05:23, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Looks like CBE's DUCKish behavior cooked his goose. --McDoobAU93 15:39, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Wrong again. You falsely made claims against me with no real proof. Your "duck" test is crap. As I have posted above. Just because someone makes a post similar to another person does not make them that person. I have looked into this case and HeadMouse's history and such. He stayed on the monorail article. I have contributed to many other articles. He was blocked in 2008. I didn't join till 2010. He was very vocal. I have not been near as vocal. McDoobAU93, I can apply the DUCK test to you as an administrator. You bold faced lied to me about not being one. But you act like a jerk, you treat others like crap, and you threaten people with no reason. You MUST be an administrator. Crazy Blue Eyes2 (talk) 18:44, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
If McDoob is an admin, you'd be blocked by now. ZappaOMati 23:53, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

The new you?[edit]

Based on your edits to the Walt Disney World Monorail System article, I presume that you are the same person who previously operated the HeadMouse (talk · contribs) and Knotslanding (talk · contribs) accounts? — Kralizec! (talk) 15:11, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Excuse me? Go away and stop trying to stir shit up. You are not even part of the discussion on that article. Be gone. Crazy Blue Eyes (talk) 01:13, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
You know I have also edited Great Locomotive Chase, Golden Spike, Crescent (train)‎, Mark VI monorail. So your assumption that I am someone else, (whom after looking at their user page I see is banned), based off my editing of this one article makes you ignorant and a troll.

Naval History[edit]

Aye there, 'Kralizec!', I'm a member of WikiProject Ships. To help naval historians here at Wikipedia in the effort of writing and citing naval history articles sometime ago I created the List of ships captured in the 19th century and Bibliography of early American naval history pages. Over the last year(+) I have been tracking down and including names of captured ships and naval history texts for inclusion in either of these articles. I like to think that I have included most captured ships (19th century) and most naval history texts (covering the 1700s-1800s) for inclusion in these articles, so if you know of any captured ships or naval history texts that are not included would you kindly include them, either on the page or the talk page of the appropriate article? Any help would be a big help and feedback is always welcomed. Thanx! -- Gwillhickers (talk) 21:50, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Inappropriate vandal warning[edit]

You recently determined that vandalism warnings given to User talk:165.138.93.203 were "inappropriate". I don't see any 4im warnings given to this user as you suggested. The user has been given multiple warnings leading up to v4 warnings. Can you explain how the process should be followed? In the meantime, since my report this user is continuing his activity at least twice more in the past hour. — DeeJayK (talk) 19:22, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

@DeeJayK Thank you for reaching out to me, and my apologies for not being more specific; I was referring to the immediate jump to a level-4 warning [2]. Unless the exact same article is being vandalized for weeks, given the massively shared nature of many IPs, warnings issued to unregistered editors typically reset to level-1 at the beginning of each new calendar month. As such, the first warning should have been a {{uw-vandalism1}}, the second a {{uw-vandalism2}}, while the third was correctly issued as a {{uw-vandalism3}}. Please note that I have little tolerance for vandals myself (as the thousands of vandalism blocks I have performed will attest in my admin log), however WP:AGF and WP:BITE require us to follow the process and give editors a chance before blocking. Regardless, I would like to thank you for your efforts at containing vandalism! — Kralizec! (talk) 19:55, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure I follow the logic of vandalism warning levels being "reset" based on a calendar month -- that seems quite arbitrary to me. Further, I can't find any documentation of the vandalism process that refers to this "reset" of vandalism warning levels. That said, I understand the concept that warnings should increase in severity. In this particular case, the most recent notification prior to this vandal coming to my attention was a V3. Thus, my first warning was a V4. Since then I've added another V4. And since I reported this user, he's committed another act (which I warned at V3 due to your rebuke) and has contacted me on my talk page to ask me to leave him alone. Meanwhile in the time since this user came to my attention he has made NO constructive edits of any sort. I'd ask that you re-consider the block request. — DeeJayK (talk) 20:05, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Since your level-3 warning at 15:17, the IP has not vandalized a single article. That sounds like mission accomplished to me, because the IP took heed of your warnings! As per WP:BLOCK#NOTPUNITIVE, blocks are preventative, not punitive. — Kralizec! (talk) 20:17, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm sure that's all it took. Thanks for your help! — DeeJayK (talk) 20:19, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Is there an automated way for you or another admin to revert all of the edits made by this IP?Hoops gza (talk) 19:03, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

@Hoops gza: While I am not enough of a subject matter expert on this topic to make the determination myself, if you are 100% sure that 100% of the edits made by the IP are detrimental, you may request a WP:MASSROLLBACK. — Kralizec! (talk) 19:15, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

I believe that 95% of the IP's edits are detrimental. I would like to request a massrollback. Then I will undo the 5% that are not detrimental.Hoops gza (talk) 20:43, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

DoneKralizec! (talk) 02:03, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Several of its edits still appear to be there. Would that be because it no longer has the top edit on most of the pages that it edited?Hoops gza (talk) 16:45, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that is correct. Rollback only zaps edits that are the most recent to the page. Otherwise you have to go back and try to undo them. — Kralizec! (talk) 16:51, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for helping me out where you could. I shall get on the rest of that in a few.Hoops gza (talk) 18:01, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Glad I could help! Thank you for helping keep non-constructive edits under control! — Kralizec! (talk) 18:17, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppet[edit]

Hi, thanks for blocking user:Gololur. Now I believe he has returned with an other name user:Galastuff as a sockpuppet editing the exact same articles in disruptive way (he has now two accounts blocked for this,user:Gololur and user:Sinevik). I have opened SPI at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Gololur for days ago at which no one seems to answer. Do you know what else I can do? Should this new editor also be blocked (without good evidence he is actually sock)? Thanks in advance for all answers. QED237 (talk) 21:30, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Adminship nomination request[edit]

Hi, I'm A.Minkowiski. I'm fighting against vandalism and my main focus is to revert vandal edits and reporting them. I would be very happy if I become an admin to fight against vandals directly. First I was an long term IP editor and now, few months before I created my account and started fighting against vandalism. I have requested same message to others if some one help me out. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you A.Minkowiski _Lets t@lk 11:37, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Plus, I'm familiar with blocking policy and other policies too. A.Minkowiski _Lets t@lk 11:41, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
My apologies, but admin nominations are probably best handled by more active administrators than I. — Kralizec! (talk) 12:20, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you sir and please do not apologize sir. I'm almost 24-hours active editor and fighting against vandalism, you can see my work. I thought I should request you. But its Okay sir. A.Minkowiski _Lets t@lk 12:37, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
and Sir, You might remember it was you who granted me Rollback rights. :) A.Minkowiski _Lets t@lk 12:43, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Your concept of "derivative works" is wrong (?)[edit]

Hello You put the following notice on your picture of a Midden ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Whaleback_Shell_Midden_gully_-_20070722_07986.JPG ):

"You may NOT use this image on your own web site or anywhere else unless you release this image and any derivative works (which may include the web page or other medium where this image is used, if it is not considered a "collective work") by following the terms of the following license. Any other use will be considered a breach of copyright and I reserve the right of legal action. Please do not copy this image illegally by ignoring the terms of the license, as it is not in the public domain."

A derivative work would be if someone changed anything in the photo, cropped, translated (where possible), adjusted bright, and so on. If someone copy the photo "as is", it's not a derivative work.

Please read the article here: http://mollykleinman.com/2008/10/20/cc-howto-no-derivatives/

It's about the NoDerivatives, in which the author (copyright specialist) says:

"Examples of things that are not adaptations as defined by the ND license:

  • Including a short story in a collection of short stories
  • - Reproducing an unedited image on a website
  • - Using an unedited video in the background of a live concert"

Using an unedited image is not an adaption, thus the page where it was published is not a derivative work either.

Here's another article about this: http://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2010/01/12/how-to-correctly-use-creative-commons-works/ read the "Derivative Work" section.

But i'm curious, could you provide us more legal info about your statement?

Thank you!

Wikipedia:Terms of use[edit]

Hi Kralizec, I've reduced the full protection you placed on Wikipedia:Terms of use (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) as I can't see how full protection would be warranted by the protection policy in it's current form. Hope you don't mind. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 05:37, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

176.253.72.144 Block[edit]

Hello Kralizec! I placed the abovementioned IP on the block request because of constant vandalism per their contribs. I am unsure as to why others did not warn them because one look at their history and you can see it is a constant vandal. Am I wrong in thinking that they must still be continually warned even though the rules say that they don't even need to be warned when there is blatant vandalism? I would just like some clarification to that so that I do not do this again if that be the case. Thanks for your help--Canyouhearmenow 14:38, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your message. The vast majority of admins require that editors receive multiple levels of escalating warnings -with new warnings only being issued when previous warnings have been ignored and more vandalism takes place- before a block is issued.
A good example is 122.168.59.248 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log). The IP vandalized at 08:52 [3] and received a level-1 warning [4], ignored to vandalize at 09:12 [5] and received a level-2 warning [6], ignored it again to vandalize at 09:17 [7] and received a level-3 warning [8], ignored it to vandalize at 09:57 [9] and received a level-4 warning [10]. The IP then ignored the warnings to vandalize again at 10:11 [11], was reported to AIV [12], and blocked at 10:13 [13].
Hope this helps. — Kralizec! (talk) 00:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification! Always wanting to do the right thing.Canyouhearmenow 01:08, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

@Vin09: How exactly do you need my intervention, as the edits in question were made more than 2000 days ago? I might suggest some WP:AGF, followed by WP:TALKFIRST, and maybe WP:BRD. — Kralizec! (talk) 14:13, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I just wanted to know about how to deal such issues, without getting in a conflict with user, thank you for info. I've removed some of the links in the wiki pages. But I want to know that, if a user page have such links, that can be removed?--Vin09 (talk) 14:17, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

talk page 68.50.21.190[edit]

Hello. I read what you wrote. I did not know there is an actual policy about this(blanking). I am deleting because Bill insulted me, saying I don't speak English,my English is poor, go edit wikipedia in my native language. Read my talk page. This is the first interaction and it sets the tone for the rest, so no more interactions. That is why I removed all posts from Bill. Anything that needs to be seen is in the history. I just want to not be in the fire. I feel like it was fun for he editors/admins as many were just insulting me. Is that necessary? I have seen notices about civility but apparently admins are exempt? When I asked about this I was followed by one ofthe ones who insulted me and they commented that I am an ip editor who was recently blocked. So what ? I dont have to have an account to edit so why does me not having an account matter ? Does me being an ip editor mean I am allowed to be disrespected ? 68.50.21.190 (talk) 14:09, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Please tell bill to stop. Bill told me my english sucks. That is rude and you all may not think so but it is. I do not wish to interact with this person. Please tell them to stop writing me. Stop please. 68.50.21.190 (talk) 18:25, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Looking into the issue, I support Bishonen's one month block. Your persistent removal of the {{ISP}} header from the talk page is further proof of your disruptive editing. — Kralizec! (talk) 02:26, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Scotch Ridge[edit]

I echo Parsecboy's comment up above; I've not seen you in forever.

You're quite welcome! I'd spent most of the day getting National Register photos in Tiffin, Sandusky, Put-in-Bay, and mainland Ottawa County, but I'll often try to get an extra photo of an interesting building if I see one, especially for these small communities that don't often have any photos at all.

The IP was warned PLENTY of times.[edit]

Look. [[17]]. The edits are exactly the same. And look... [[18]] he was clearly warned, several times. So you can't say the IP wasn't warned inadequetly. 85.210.185.45 (talk) 15:14, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Quamzin Kravshera[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Quamzin Kravshera has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (biographies) and Wikipedia:Notability (fiction) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back. Thank you,

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
