File source problem with File:Marie official.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Marie official.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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 08:49, 10 April 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Radiant chains (talk) 08:49, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Second Home.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Second Home.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by STBotI. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 09:28, 10 April 2009 (UTC)


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! faithless (speak) 23:42, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Marie Digby[edit]

Wow, where to start. First, this edit summary is not only ridiculous, it's violates Wikipedia's civility policy - if you can't edit without attacking your fellow editors, Wikipedia might not be the place for you. As I noted previously, your edits were reverted because they were of poor quality and they introduced copyrighted material. You cannot simply take images and text from elsewhere on the internet and insert them into Wikipedia. If you want to learn how to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, that's great! I'll help you in any way I can! But do not attack others when they correct you. faithless (speak) 00:01, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Do not want to attack.[edit]

I am sorry you feel I am attacking. I added crucial, verifiable information surrounding Marié and her career and it was either deleted, or changed to a more poorer, as you put it, wording. The material I submitted as a photo was a more recent photo which was freely distributed under the reuse laws as a album cover wallpaper. The photo in this article is dated and should be replaced and the photo I used is free to be republished. I guess I didn't take the right steps to prove the copyright and the old photo is up. But the important issue of the leak and the story leading up to the leak was reverted to 1 sentence and this is poor. The information I provided came straight from Marié on 3 of her fan pages and is undeniably correct and very important to the future of her page. I will not attack editors in the future. Any information you feel you would like to pass on to me as far as contributing is fine with me.

I'm glad to see you're willing to work together. Wikipedia is a pretty complicated place, and new editors are often confused and angry when their contributions are removed. I know that you mean well with your edits, you just have a lot to learn about contributing. Wikipedia's image policy is one of the most complicated areas there is. To put it simply, we don't use copyrighted images of living people when there are free images available. That's a pretty inarguable rule. (Besides, pictures don't need to be constantly updated - the picture we have is just as representative of her as any newer image.) We must also be careful not to pay undue weight to a given event. As you said, the album leak is already mentioned in the article. Giving the leak its own section which takes up half the article is giving it much more attention than it deserves. It's a pretty minor event, and doesn't need that much detail. Also, you'd be well served to look through the policy regarding reliable sources; we only cover what can be verified in reliable sources, such as newspapers, books, magazines, journals, etc. Fan sites are not reliable sources, even if what they say is true. Wikipedia is concerned with verifiability, not necessarily truth. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me, and let's discuss any large changes to the article before putting them in. Best, faithless (speak) 00:26, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

The facts are FACTS. I was the first one who mentioned the leak and I got the facts correct. Please stop changing them. These are true and have been validated by the correct people who wished to remain nameless. I am posting the correct information again, just as it was the first time I posted it. Please stop removing this information. I was asked to add it and I am. This is not General cleanup as you call it. This is completely removing the actual facts given to the page. This is the discussion. I am telling you what I was asked to contribute and you are completely removing or paraphrasing it. This is a milestone in her career and needs more than a paraphrase. The act of leaking itself by reputable persons is one thing and the fact that her fans were upset and she thought to reply to them and speak on the matter identifies her character and the importance of the information to Wikipedia. Once again, I am not sure who you are to the case. You are a Wiki consultant and not a Marie consultant I am guessing. That's important to the well being of Wiki but removing pertinent facts to the progression of this article is unethical and should be reconsidered.

OH and I did remove the album cover although now laws were broken.

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 02:03, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

The editor[edit]

I saw your message on User talk:Ckatz. I just wanted to say, no-one is the editor. We are all equal contrbuters to wikipedia, and it doesnt matter who is the main contributor to the article, anyone can change it, at any time, if they provide reliable sources.
