Welcome to Wikipedia, Leeatcookerly! I am Calaka and have been editing Wikipedia for quite some time. I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to Wikipedia!

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome!

Re: Deletion of Secure POS Vendors Alliance[edit]

The problem was the whole tone of the article. Because it was copied without meaningful amendment from the source website, it reads very clearly as writing intended to set the organisation in the best possible (and jargon-riddled) light and not at all as an encyclopedic collection of notable facts. Non-profits are not immune from the tendency to wish to promote themselves and certainly I would in general expect their websites to do so. It is extremely unusual for a copy-paste of a website of any organisation to be acceptable as Wikipedian encyclopedic content whether or not copyright permission has been granted. I would suggest the successful route will be to write an original article from scratch, making citations back to the website and to third-party reports to establish facts. See here for some useful guidelines on how to write about organisations in general and how to establish whether or not an organisation warrants an article at all. If you are associated with the Alliance, there are some general cautions here which may be useful to you. Splash - tk 12:32, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Secure POS Vendor Alliance[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Secure POS Vendor Alliance has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence of notability. The references are minor mentions or pages in promotional business listing websites etc.

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.

Files missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media files you uploaded as:

are missing a description and/or other details on their image description pages. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the images, and they will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the images may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 10:27, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:ATLHOVLaneSigns.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:ATLHOVLaneSigns.jpg, which you've attributed to The Clean Air Campaign. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release 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}} 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:17, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
