Thanks[edit]

For Category:History of Jerusalem (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Please watch this page closely. I am getting pretty sick of the POV-vandalism committed there by this bunch of extreme Zionists. --Eidah 15:51, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Little context in Radiator surround[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Radiator surround, by Carmen56 (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Radiator surround is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Radiator surround, 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. --Android Mouse Bot 2 04:42, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

house demolition[edit]

Is it just me, or is this whole thing crazy? do these people udnerstand what they're getting themselves into? Do they realize that the people mentioning Israeli demolitions of Israeli houses will continualy want to draw equivalencies between the two? I guess there's not much we can do now. --Steve, Sm8900 18:22, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

What do you suggest then? // Liftarn

comment removal[edit]

hi Liftarn, apologies for having removed your article extract, i was thinking it might have been done in error as i didn't see the direct link. your expanation clarifies things however, thank you. ITAQALLAH 11:30, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

No harm done. // Liftarn

Making false accusations[edit]

You have made false accusations about me. [1]. FYI, I have never edited that jihadi leaflet other than adding an AFD note. ←Humus sapiens ну? 11:55, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Mea culpa. Sorry about that. I'll remove it. // Liftarn

Your edit in Kart racing[edit]

Liftarn, you have reposted your picture taken in a Swedish museum in Kart racing without any argumentation. As I said before when I reverted it, I believe your note has its place on the Swedish Karting article, or maybe you want to create a new page on the history of karting in Sweden. If we start to explain how karting started in France, Germany, India or Japan, this article is going to be extremely boring and out of place. It is already made mention of the 50th anniversary - with FIA reference - as well as the introduction of karting (which started in the US) in Europe with reference also. This is enough of history for this topic as it is more interesting to know what the sport is about today IMO. I will revert your edit again and suggest that you open a discussion here if you feel that your point is greatly improving this article anyway. - Wikigi | talk to me | 19:37, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Why did yo blank it with such an obviously invalid reason? // Liftarn

Vagn Bennike[edit]

Dear LiftarnIs there any Swedish, German or other source you know of for Vagn Bennike that might help us to make a wiki page in his memory? Regards Nishidani 14:15, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

I found one short bio[2] and some articles [3][4]. fr:Vagn Bennike and he:ואגן בניקה already exists. // Liftarn
I'm in your debt Liftarn. I was just reading, slowly (it's been 37 years since I studied the sister language Swedish), the Norwegian (?) section when I noted you'd already got the article up. My computer for some strange reason, seizes up and closes down when I access the Time article, but I'll try to get over the jinx, read up and flesh the stub out. Thanks againNishidani 15:27, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Your recent edit[edit]

Could you please explain this edit [5]. Last I checked this was not free software and its shareware. I'm not even the original author of the screenshot. I don't believe this was a valid move to commons.--Crossmr 03:04, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

"we have released the source code (along with all necessary support files, graphics files, sound effects, etc.) for the Windows and Macintosh versions of Blades of Exile to the world. Do what you want with it (within the sensible legal guidelines described in the license), and have fun."[6] // Liftarn
Thanks. I had a brief look at their product page when I found that, and still saw it listed as a "demo" for download.--Crossmr 13:03, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:2cat3d_3.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:2cat3d_3.png. 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 ensure 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 non-free media 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. ~ Wikihermit 18:22, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Image:Z06-Blk-7.jpg[edit]

You need to assume good faith here my friend. These are pictures of my car fix ed up with Adobe photoshop and after effects. FrankWilliams 18:19, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Great! // Liftarn

Image:Mad-sci.jpg.[edit]

Truth is, I frankly don't know where this image came from anymore. It was more than five years ago since I found it, and all I remember is that it was from some serial or another that was being freely distributed by a number of sources. No one fussed about that sort of thing in 2003.

I would note, though, that the image has been adopted by dozens of users, and apparently made it into a popular userbox. Its deletion would break all of those. Collateral damage is not a consideration, I guess. I suspect that a link to the made-for-Wikipedia image that now resides (and replaced this old one) on the mad scientist page might be an adequate substitute for most of these uses, but it would require that each user page that has it be edited. Is there a bot for this? - Smerdis of Tlön 18:51, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Image:Mad-sci.jpg is used at Boffin where it says it's Dr Alexander Thorkel (Albert Dekker) from Dr. Cyclops (1940) so we have a source. Is there a way to check if the copyright has been renewed? // Liftarn
Good - someone recognized it. If I had known that, I would have mentioned it at least. There must be some way of telling if it has been renewed, but I do not know what that might be. - Smerdis of Tlön 14:00, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Ah, you go to http://cocatalog.loc.gov/ and check it there. It is listed but the problem is that I don't know how to interpret the results. // Liftarn
Nothing in there seems to indicate that a renewal is on file. The first item involves a lunchbox apparently made from reusing the movie art; this suggests a lack of renewal, rather than otherwise. The other listings would appear to be for compilations of various kinds that include it. - Smerdis of Tlön 16:05, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I'll move it to Commons then. // Liftarn

Image:1913, March 9, Man wearing bowler hat, Winnipeg, MB, Canada.jpg[edit]

While you're technically right to dispute the copyright status of the photograph, why bother? WilyD 17:27, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Because if I transfer it to Commons with all the paperwork I get shit for it. // Liftarn

Whitelist[edit]

Hey Liftarn, I think I've just succeeded in whitelisting your site, so you'll have no problem with our bot. He's a good worker, but a bit of a linear thinker.  ;) If that didn't work, I'm in contact with the operator, so he should sort me out.

Cheers! — madman bum and angel 22:23, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Seems to work now. Cheers! — madman bum and angel 22:41, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Batman[edit]

A free image with Batman and Robin in the Batmobile. You've got to be joking? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Talk"? 17:46, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

No, just the car. That should be less of a problem. See Commons:Category:Batmobile. //

Note I already uploaded an image to the commons from flickr and replaced the copywrighted one. The 60s car is actually my uploaded image there. We now have a free replacement. Thanks ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Talk"? 12:21, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

I think we have at least the movie and TV series cars covered now. The animated are probably more difficult to find free replacements for. // Liftarn

Ah I only love the 60s tv series anyway - I can't really confess to liking comics anyway. All the best ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Talk"? 12:36, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the images...[edit]

Sorry about that; the images are classified as parody, but you are free to get rid of them if you find this inappropriate. I deeply apologize for the trouble I made... Blake Gripling 08:01, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

No problem. I quite enjoyed some of them, but on Wikipedia you need to keep a paper trail so you don't run into problems. If you used free images as a base it would be another issue. // Liftarn

moving my images to commons[edit]

I wish you would NOT do that. I cannot update my images when they are moved to commons. Moreover, I did not ask you to do that. Motorrad-67 14:44, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes you can. All you have to do is to get an acoount there as well (or is that tranpsarent nowdays, I don't remember). Oh, and by the way you shouldn't watermark your images. // Liftarn

PLEASE MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND STOP MESSING WITH MY IMAGES! GET A LIFE!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Motorrad-67 (talkcontribs)

I do mind my own business and my business is transfering images to Commons. Please read Wikipedia:Image use policy#User-created images where it clearly says "user-created images may not be watermarked, distorted, have any credits in the image itself or anything else that would hamper their free use". // Liftarn

IF YOU KEEP THIS HARRASSMENT UP I WILL NEVER CONTRIBUTE ANOTHER IMAGE TO WIKIPEDIA. IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT, YOU ARE ON THE THRESHOLD OF BEING SUCCESSFUL. AGAIN, PLEASE MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND STOP MESSING WITH MY IMAGES! GET A LIFE!! Motorrad-67 15:50, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

How can it be harrassement to transfer a few pictures to Commons? // Liftarn
I did not ask you to do that and you persist in saying you will. That's harassment in my book. You were uninvited. However, if you prove to be deaf to my requests, I will cease all participation in Wikipedia. If you leave my images alone, I will continue to supply images and participate. The choice is entirely yours. Motorrad-67 16:06, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Hey, this is a wiki anybody can contribute. You don't own the content. Feel free to keep participating, but please don't launch personal attacks and also plase make sure your images follow Wikipedia:Image use policy. Thank you. // Liftarn
I contribute by providing text and images. Others apparently do not but choose rather to harass those who do contribute. When my images are taken to commons, I can no longer update or improve them. They are locked to me. Therefore, I will stop contributing to Wikipedia if my images are not left alone. Motorrad-67 16:36, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
I contribute by providing text, images and by moving free images to Commons. If you feel it is necessary to harass and threaten me because of that you should perhaps take a break and consider your motives for working on Wikipedia. Images on Commons are not locked. All you have to do is to go there and edit just as here. // Liftarn

"Asatru is not a neopagan religion as such"[edit]

could you avoid using Wikipedia as a soapbox for your private idiosyncratic opinions? If you want to make a case that Polytheistic reconstructionism is "not neopagan as such", present your case at Talk:Polytheistic reconstructionism, presenting your sources, but please stop your tactics of petty edit-warring. --dab (𒁳) 11:29, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

I could say the same about you. While Asatru technically is a form of polytheistic reconstructionism it doesn't really belong in the neopagan sphere as it has a different hsitory. // Liftarn

I urge you again to behave. You have been given ample time to establish encyclopedicity. You have not delivered. The merger has found support from Huntster (talk · contribs) and Zara1709 (talk · contribs). no information was removed in the merge. Your idiosyncratic position has consistently failed to get any support from other editors. You have to recognize that as it stands, you have no case. If you can present an encyclopedic discussion, or find support from editors in good standing the case would lie different. As long as you cannot do that, please avoid wasting any more of my time. dab (𒁳) 08:59, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Please stop wasting my time by constantly trying to remove valid articles. Is this som kind of personal vendetta or do you actually have a valid reason for your actions? // Liftarn

you are sadly confirming my expectations by acting as immaturely as ever. I haven't the least personal stake in this, and I am utterly un-interested in you as a person. this is about WP:ENC. Stop your trolling, and I will likely forget your existence after 20 minutes. dab (𒁳) 11:08, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Your edits to Columbia University[edit]

Hi, just two comments. (1) The source you re-added doesn't seem to have anything to do with the incident it is listed with. The article you sourced is about Ahmadinejad's recent visit to the university, whereas the section you added it in is about the 1933 visit of the German ambassador. (2) I added the {{who?}} tag after the quote Luther's speech stressed Hitler's "peaceful intentions" because you did not cite the source of the quote "peaceful intentions". Thanks! Yavoh 18:44, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

1) The article is also about Luther's visit. Read the full article. 2) It's in the reference you deleted. // Liftarn

Religious discrimination against Neopagans[edit]

I'm posting this note both on your page and dab's. Please stop the revert war straight away. I suspect each of you is using this article to get at the other, and the article and the encyclopaedia are suffering because of it. Personally I support the merger, but would prefer it to stand as it is untilm a gebnuine consensus involving other editors can emerge. Kim Dent-Brown (Talk to me) 10:55, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm OK with that. Actually I'm the one that is open for suggstions and debate. // Liftarn
Having just reviewd the discussions at Talk:Religious discrimination against Neopagans, which I had not previously seen, I feel that a consensus for merger has been achieved, with only yourself opposing. Please allow the article to be merged there. If you revert it again you will definitely be in breach of 3RR. Kim Dent-Brown (Talk to me) 11:16, 4 October 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kim Dent-Brown (talkcontribs)
No consensus have been acheived (or even attempted), it just mob rule. An earlier merge suggestion was rejected at Talk:Religious discrimination against Asatru#Request for Comments: merge?. // Liftarn

Electronic stalking[edit]

My goodness, Mr. Liftarn, haven't you got anything better to do with your valuable time that stalk me electronically?

I try to stay out of controversial topics since I simply don't have the time and energy ...

You appear to have the time and energy to stalk me. I think I once suggested that you consider getting a life. Clearly, I was very prescient at the time! Motorrad-67 15:39, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Consider yourself to be listed on my list of Wikiepedia vandals. I'm keeping my eye on you. // Liftarn
Fine. Sorry you don't have anything more constructive to do with your life, such as it is. Motorrad-67 15:41, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Since vandals can destroy easier than it is to build it is time well spent to watch them so they can be stopped as soon as possible. // Liftarn
Well said. Try "building: yourself some day. You might enjoy it. Would love to see the high quality photos you have contributed. Can you give me Wiki links? Motorrad-67 15:45, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Feel free to have a look at Commons:Category:Files by Liftarn. // Liftarn
Thank you. Alas, most of those are snapshots with cluttered backgrounds. Good photos? Afraid not. I would hope you could do better. Motorrad-67 15:50, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Whatever. // Liftarn

F.Y.I. Any new photos I post to Wikipedia will be 200 px maximum, which works for thumbnails. No more large photos. Go ahead any move them to Commons because I don't care. You don't need to notify me. Have fun. Motorrad-67 16:01, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Fine, be a jerk. // Liftarn
If that is what I have been forced to become, I have only you to thank. (By the way, I think that may have been a personal attack.) Motorrad-67 12:01, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
No, you choosed to be like that. // Liftarn
I "choosed" to be like that? Interesting choice of "words." Motorrad-67 12:46, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
Yes, you could have just said "Great, someone liked my picture enought to make it available to a wider audience. Now I don't have to transfer it to Commons myself.". // Liftarn

Nobel Prize in Economics[edit]

Please stop with edits like this one. As you are aware of, your suggestion to use Nobel Memorial Prize instead of Nobel Prize has been rejected. If you want to reopen that debate, please do, but until that refrain from unilateral changes. -- Vision Thing -- 11:56, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Let's don't compare apples with cement trucks here. The article name is one thing, that it's called within articles is another thing. By the way, please stop introducing lies to Wikipedia. That may be considered vandalism. // Liftarn
I would advice you to stop misrepresenting the edits of other editors. To use the most commonly used name in the English language is not a 'lie' but an acknoledgement of fact. Wikipedia is descriptive not prescriptive, and if you don't like the way English speakers use their language, I'm sorry. --Uriel 23:40, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
No, using slang terms while presenting them as actual terms is a deception and yes, also a lie. If you don't like what the award is called I suggest you write to the Nobel Foundation and ask them to rename the prize. // Liftarn

I'm willing to unblock if this is true but I didn't see vandalism, just an ongoing dispute over the title of a template. Can you explain? Ronnotel 15:11, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm nott 100% sure about it, but to knowingly insert false information in an article may be a form of vandalism. // Liftarn
I don't think your edits were really vandalism reverts. It seems to be a content dispute over the title of the prize (to my knowledge, I thought it was Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics). I think the other users' edits are under the category of "unintentional misinformation", which does not fall into the realm of vandalism. Nishkid64 (talk) 17:20, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Vision Thing's edits are intentional misinformation. He also reverted (all recent edits) Liftarn's edit of "Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics" [7] and changed it to "Nobel Prize in Economics" in the Milton Freedman article, as well as my edit from the official and cited name of "Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel" to "Nobel Prize in Economics" [8]. Despite being asked to stop removing the official name on his talk page, he continues to do it anyway. He is intentionally not allowing any other name, including the official name, to be used in lieu of a common name for the prize (which many have already pointed out is a misleading name in a few discussions). What is WP's policy about this? –panda 18:54, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
That may be vandalism, but only "simple vandalism" reversion are exempt from 3RR. Either way, a 3RR block was appropriate. Nishkid64 (talk) 19:33, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Ok, but what is WP's policy about this issue? It's spilling over into all of the articles associated with the econ prize and it would be nice to know how to handle this. VT has been very adamant in his insistence that the prize be called "Nobel Prize in Economics" despite protests from others. –panda 19:55, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Well, it seems like a dispute, so the pages can be protected (judging on a case-by-case basis) or you can raise the issue at WP:AN/I and seek the input of a larger group of people. Nishkid64 (talk) 19:59, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Is there any other forum to ask for input from a larger group of people? WP:AN/I doesn't look like the right place but I can post something there if you believe it is. According to the related page's history [9], it is unfair to only block Liftarn since User:Vision Thing and User:Lost.goblin ganged up on him to avoid violating WP:3RR. –panda 23:15, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
A tag team reverts. Aren't that covered by 3RR as well? // Liftarn
Unfortunately no, tag team reverts are not covered by 3RR for reasons that can be found in Wikipedia talk:Three-revert rule#Are cartels allowed?. That being said, I do think that only blocking Liftarn in this case is unfair as he was only trying to put more correct information in the template, versus less correct text. In the future, could you please ask for an outside opinion instead of edit warring? There are many editors who hold the same opinion as you about this issue and it doesn't help when one gets blocked. –panda 16:02, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
I personally would love an outside opinion, as the current situation is ridiculous, already many months ago I pointed out in Talk:Nobel_Prize_in_Economics#Name_used_in_other_articles that we probably will have to ask for arbitration because consensus seems impossible. --Uriel 23:49, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Some interesting developments here. Rebecca unblocked me with the comment "I don't see this as being justified. He's a very long-term user in an edit dispute where the warring parties have behaved just as badly, if not worse.". Not really needed as the block would have expired anyway, but then Ronnotel slapped a new 48 hour block for the same 3RR. Now that was uncalled for. User:Ugen64 slapped on a one week block. It looks like I'm in the focus of a block war. // Liftarn

I think you're looking at old block comments. You shouldn't be blocked anymore. –panda 16:02, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
(edit conflict)Please review the block log again. The block that Rebecca lifted was in July and unrelated to the 3RR violation for which I imposed the block. I took no action other than what I described in that 3RR report. Ronnotel 16:05, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
Ok, it seems to work now. Looks like I ran into some autoblock side effects. // Liftarn

Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions#Awards and prizes naming conventions - proposal[edit]

Thanks so much for starting this thread! Excellent idea! I was wondering, though, why is it not located at the bottom of the page? (Your sig isn't time stamped so I don't know when you started it and I haven't looked at the history.) –panda 17:18, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

WP:CHECKUSER#Liftarn[edit]

FYI. Vision Thing has filed a WP:CHECKUSER#Liftarn suspecting that User:Liftarn and User:Lensor are the same user. –panda 06:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Hehe... That is so obviously false a checkuser shouldn't be necessary. // Liftarn

Vision Thing[edit]

In case you didn't notice, the only thing Vision Thing did on 11 October 2007 was comment in Talk:Nobel Prize or follow you around and revert your edits. [10] I believe that would be considered wikistalking. A warning on his talk page may be called for. –panda 16:52, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

That's difficult to prove. It may be just a coincidence. // Liftarn

Assuming good faith[edit]

WP:AGF is policy, not just a polite note. I don't think getting yourself blocked for incivility is a particularly good way of winning this argument. For what it's worth, I'm in broad agreement about your version of the title, but it's evident that a lot of people still disagree, and they're not going to be persuaded by allegations of personal malice. Please try to establish current consensus rather than turning this into an edit war. Chris Cunningham 10:17, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

...actually, looking at your history, I see you actually have been blocked for this before. Seriously, do you think the outcome will be any different this time? Please change your tactics. Chris Cunningham 10:19, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Yes, that was a slip-up. That won't happen again. And as far as I know facts don't require a consensus. // Liftarn
Actually, they do. On Wikipedia, being right about something doesn't give you carte blanche to attack others or have your way. You'd be much better served by avoiding personal attacks, not least because it reduces the chances of you being blocked. I'm not sure what you mean by "slup-up", but it seems like you're indicating that the block was a result of others' actions rather than yours. This definitely doesn't seem to be the case.
Again, the title you've picked sounds like the correct one to use to me, but it's unlikely that you're going to get your way just by continually reverting to it. Chris Cunningham 11:06, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
I never attacked anyone. It was a slip-up (and I slipped-up then typing it as well). Reverting people who knowingly inserts false information fullfills several goals, a) the information is corrected, b) it makes it possible to bring it to discussion (if you just leave the errors they will ignore the talk pages). // Liftarn
That's a perfectly valid argument for reverting something once or twice. It is not a valid argument for reverting something until one is blocked for 3RR, and then returning to do so again afterwards. Misbehaviour by other editors is not a license to do the same yourself. Taking the topic in question to WP:RFPP until it had been discussed would be much more effective. Chris Cunningham 11:32, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
That would mean a whole lot of pages would have to be protected. I have tried to bring it up at WP:ANI, but that didn't do much good. I was also reccomended WP:RFC/USER so I did that at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Camptown. // Liftarn
I did bring it up at WP:RFPP, but it was rejected. // Liftarn
I can't see how it is helpful to call 'liars' and 'vandals' people who are just doing what they think is right. --Uriel 21:23, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
If they are knowingly inserting false information (i.e. lies) they I don't see why they could be called what they are. // Liftarn

Image:tinfoillinux.jpg copy to Commons?[edit]

Just curous, what is the meaning of the {{to Commons}} template you've put on this image today? It seems to imply that you think the image is inappropriate for some reason, i.e. being indiscriminately included. Do you think that Tinfoil Hat Linux does not deserve an image of its logo on its page? Or is it simply that you think that the image itself belongs to be hosted on the Commons site rather than on Wikipedia itself? I am not experienced in these political matters, so I don't know what the rule is with where images of various licensing belong. Ryan Reich 16:50, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

As it is the image can only be used on the English Wikipepia, but since it's a free image it can be copied to commons. Then it will become available on all Wikimedia projects. It's certainly not tagged because it's inappropriate, but rather the opposite. // Liftarn
Okay, cool. I'm just being vigilant about my pet articles; from time to time, people do things which are perhaps well-meaning, but still quite wrong, on the "advice" of some guideline or other. Ryan Reich 17:39, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Redirect of NSMPD[edit]

Information icon.svg

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

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting NSMPD, 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.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Friday the 13th.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Friday the 13th.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).

Sorry, but right now there isn't enough commentary for that game, or any game in that section to justify the use of a non-free image.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 20:27, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
That's because an entire article was suddenly (with no prior discussion) merged into Friday the 13th (franchise) deleting lots of content in the process. I'll se what I can do. // Liftarn
I've removed the infobox because it was a bit of an eyesore, to be frank. There's no need to give so much attention to a minor aspect of the page.

But Bignole's right about being bold. Paul730 21:39, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Please know that being bold means you act first, and then discuss if there is opposition. There is no requirement that says any legitimate move must be discussed first. But you reverted, so I put in a proposal. BTW, the only thing that got deleted from the article was that walkthrough of the game.

Are you calling me a liar?[edit]

I strongly object to the edit you made here. You asked how it became PD, I referred to the file which said the image was supplied on request and released PD, and you then said "Yeah, but where's the proof of that?" You didn't assume good faith and inferred I was being dishonest. I approached Pacific Aerospace Corporation in the middle of 2005 seeking a Creso pic. They obliged and released the image PD. That's basically what the image file has said since then. If you continue to doubt what I say, in essence call me a liar, then expect a visit to RfC. Moriori 23:15, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

WP:PUI[edit]

Hey Liftarn, I hope I'm not missing some backstory, but regarding this PUI entry: CC-BY-NC-SA is a nonfree license, as it prohibits commercial use, and it is therefore unsuitable for Wikipedia. That's a particularly common issue -- many people are often happy to let others use their image, but are then uncomfortable with letting go of commercial rights.

Indian Removal Act[edit]

Does not contain any language supporting the inference that it was the first usage of The Final Solution. I'm not saying it is or isn't but when you claim the first usage of any term on Wikipedia it needs to be heavily sourced. Alatari (talk) 21:50, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

I've added the article by Mattias Gardell I found it in. I think that should be quite enough consedering he's not just any jounalist hack, but a scolar. // Liftarn (talk)
I can't find a translator link or an English version of that article. It is notable but most editors will want to read it in English and some will require 3 scholarly sources for that type of superlative/comparative statement. Alatari (talk) 23:37, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
If you want I can translate the central part (or if you wish you can ask for an independent translator). What "most" and "some" editors want and what policy says may be very different. // Liftarn (talk)
Did Andrew Jackson use the words "Final Solution"? Did anyone in congress at the time use those exact words? If you find a document quoting Jackson directly stating final solution from his pen hand or mouth then we can word it differently. Alatari (talk) 11:18, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
The source says those was his exact words. Considering the strenght of the source I don't think another source is really necessary. Googling will probably be very difficult due to the large number of false positives. // Liftarn (talk)
That source is a tertiary source when primary sources are in Andrew Jacksons own writing and secondary sources are from newspapers of the time period. Mattias Gardell is a bit of an anarchist and since I can't find an English source for his words I will have stress the importance of finding better sources. Alatari (talk) 16:00, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
No, that's a secondary source. And ad hominem attacks are no good argument. I would also reccomend you to use the talk page of the article instead. // Liftarn (talk)
I've spent hours on your claim when WP:PROVEIT is how I should have handled it. The first usage of the term by Andrew Jackson is unusual and a WP:REDFLAG is up so exceptional and reliable sources are required so WP:RSUE is required and since it says right in his article Mattias Gardell he is an anarchist WP:RELY Extremist Sources applies when citing him. I'm done doing your work. I'm removing the reference until you can fulfill the previous requirements. Alatari (talk) 17:42, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, but Mattias Gardell is a respected scolar so "extermist sources" clearly doesn't apply. Using that logic no source is reliable. // Liftarn (talk)
If his statement is that important then it should be found in English quotes by other scholars, authors, magazines, newspapers or even Indian activist or other websites and I can not find attribution of "final solution of Indian problem" to Andrew Jackson anywhere. Your translation must be faulty. I can find the term referenced to the Great Peace Commission of 1866, William Tecumseh Sherman and even Thomas Jefferson using it in 1804 referring to intermarriage but not Andrew Jackson. A disambiguation page is not a place to list every instance of the use Final Solution. Alatari (talk) 14:00, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

"What if I take the image and cut out the icons from it? Then you would have "the source image files".
The icons are vector images. A low-resolution pixmap does not provide an equivalent. Clearly the distribution of the maps for commercial gain is intended to be allowed by the license, so I understand their concern to be with the vector images.—RJH (talk) 18:07, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Baltica (computer)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Baltica (computer) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. —Coastergeekperson04's talk@ 00:44, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Volvo Page Edit[edit]

Liftarn, I am new to wikipedia edits so please excuse me if I have erred. I recently make a change to Volvo_cars to remove a statement regarding the C-pillar that I believe to be incorrect. You replaced it with "The Volvo 745 had some severe problems that could cause sever injuries in a frontal colission.[14]" Apart from the spelling mistakes, that too is an unsupportable conclusion from ref 14 (the Vanagon - Volvo 745 crash test). Please refer to the discussion page for my justification for the edit. Why did you undo my change? User:garlandw72.39.151.5 (talk) 00:08, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

You may fix the spelling if you want, but the facts are correct. Both about the C pillar and the rename from 740 to 940. The full ref is not avaoilable online as far as I have found. // Liftarn (talk)
Please clarify. Please explain how there is a problem with the Volvo 745 C-pillar based on the video images of the reference. In the images, the C-pillar is not damaged. The A-pillar is squashed right up to the B-pillar but that is NOT because of a faulty design; it is squashed because the Vanagon is high. Any vehicle will undergo an A-pillar deformation if the impact comes in at that height. I repeat, it is not a fault of the 745; it is merely a consequence of this particular accident. Since the images were posted on a Vanagon site, it appears that the point of the test is to show that the Vanagon is not quite the death trap that it first appears to be because the front structure is quite rigid and higher than a typical car. To prove the point, they crashed it into what was widely achnowledged to be one of the safest cars on the road at the time - the 745. They could have used a big Mersedes and have gotten the same result. This of course points to an important safety issue, the mismatch of vehicle heights, that deserves a full discussion given the number of SUVs and large trucks on the road these days and the push to smaller, greener passenger cars. But again, to finger the 745 as the issue is wrong. I am not disputing the fact that the 740 series became the 940 series; that is well known. Nor am I disputing that the 940 has some safety improvements over the 740 (SIPS for instance). I am quite familiar with the 745 and I have never heard of the C-pillar weakness that you claim. I also checked with the large collection of experienced people in the Volvo owners community at www.brickboard.com. They never heard of a C-pillar weakness. So please back up your claim that there are severe problems in a 745 that could cause severe injuries in a frontal collision.

I repeat, please back up your claim or remove the statement. http://www.folksam.se/english/reports shows a 2005 report that puts the 740/940 (from 1982 on) in the 15% better than average category, the second from the top category.

Folkrace vs Bangers rodeo[edit]

Have you got Bangers rodeos or so-called demolition derbys in Sweden? It is not the intention of Folkrace that the last man driving is the winner, after he has crashed all other competitors out of the race. Although Folkrace is driven with mostly terrible looking cars it is IMO some kind of "Rallycross for the poor" and has nothing to do with deliberately forcing other drivers to retire. Otherwise it would definetely not be regognised by the SBF. AFAIK Banger races are in no European country recognised by any ASN. RX-Guru (talk) 15:53, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Banger racing does not necessarily mean you have to crash all the orher cars. As it says at banger racing "drivers of old vehicles race against one another around a race track and the race is won in terms of the first car to the chequered flag". See Talk:Folkrace. // Liftarn (talk)
You should have cited the text just a little further. The article also reads: "…all the while (in Europe primarily) attempting to deliberately wreck the opposing vehicles." Fact is, that Banger racing is not recognised as motorsport nor even credited to be serious by the FIA and/or its recognised ASNs as it is in Europe mostly performed as demolition derbys. And that is absolutely not the case with Folkrace (recognised by the SBF) nor Bilcross (recognised by the NBF) nor Jokamiehenluokka (recognised by the AKK). You compare kalabalik (hullabaloo) to motorsport, if you compare a Bangers race with a Folkrace. RX-Guru (talk) 01:09, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Whatever, I can't be bothered with that now anyway. Do whatever you want. // Liftarn (talk)

Thanks very much for your recent addition to the Lunokhod programme article! Do you by any chance have a citable source for the information about lubricants and engine enclosures? Thanks! (sdsds - talk) 19:48, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it was mentioned on a one hour special (today) on SVT2 called "Den ryska månbilen" as a aprt of "Vetenskapens värld". It was probably a documentary bought from somewhere, but I missed the credits so it's hard to tell. I'd guess it was originally made by Discovery. There is some info on the web[12], but little compared to the entire documentary. // Liftarn (talk)

Volvo T6[edit]

I noticed that you reverted my edit on the Volvo T6 page, if the T6 is capable of 205mph, then of course I have no problem with the article stating that, however it seems unlikely for an open wheeled car with 300bhp to be able of hitting 205mph, I did look around for some confirmation of the T6's top speed, but couldnt find anything. Where did you get that figure from? A reliable source would be nice? Sennen goroshi (talk) 17:33, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

As you may find if you look there is a source for the figure. // Liftarn (talk)
I do not want this to descend into an argument, as we both seem to be editors who have a shared interest in cars. however the first thing that made me sceptical about the claimed top speed is that I don't know of any road car that can get to 185mph, let alone 205mph with 300bhp - A porsche GT3 has a coefficent drag factor of .29 - very low for a road car, and only hits 193 mph with 415bhp. I have no issue with the volvo T6, its a brave design, and I wish they had built it - however one quote from Edmunds, who make no claim for testing it to that speed, seems to be a mistake..205kmh might be more accurate. Give me your opinion on this, I am interested in your reasoning behind this. Are there some special aerodynamics on the car that I am not aware of? I will wait for a while, for you to respond, before I consider re-editing that article. thanks Sennen goroshi (talk) 03:51, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
I realise that it is sourced, however it is not a reliable source, they merely give a figure without any mention of them having roadtested the car. What is more is that the figure is highly unrealistic. To show how unrealistic it is, please try to find another road legal car, that can achieve 205mph with just 300bhp. Source or not, it should be obvious that the figure is not accurate, I dont really care about having a source or not, if the figure stated was 150mph, then I wouldnt doubt it for a second, but really give it a thought and work out if 205mph is realistic. Sennen goroshi (talk) 04:01, 12 March 2008 (UTC)


If you think its likely that 205kmh is the truth, then perhaps it would be a better idea not to mention the speed at all.Sennen goroshi (talk) 17:53, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

New antisemitism mediation[edit]

Heya Liftarn.

I would first like to apologise on behalf of the Mediation Committee for the delay in this case being dealt with, which is due to a shortage of available mediators. I have expressed interest in taking this case to help with the backlog and to assess my nomination to join the committee. As i am not currently a member it is common practice to for the involved parties to consent to mediation of an RfM from a non-committee member. To give your consent for me to act as mediator for this case please sign as you have for the acceptance of the case on the case page. I look forward to working with you and finding a solution to the dispute.

Noticed the discussion here Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_1#Antisemitism and that your suggested changes not made.

New Antisemitism Mediation[edit]

I think thats its time we got moving. A couple of the points have been raised before and felt they were the foundations to the dispute:

  • Firstly whether the picture can be confirmed to have been taken in the rally in San Fransisco.
  • Secondly to come to an agreement on what new antisemitism is and then to decide what the image is depicting and whether it purely illustrates New Antisemitism or whether it also addresses other issues which could be confused with new antisemitism by new readers.
  • If we cant confirm the those then we need to find a viable alternative.

A point i would like to raise is that at some point a lead image might need to be found if this article got to FA. The image in question is not free and couldn't be put on the main page with this article as todays FA. Although not an immediate point a long term solution might wish to be found so that this article could feature on the main page with a viable alternative.

Does anyone have access to Lexis Nexis? It might help as a search on the network could uncover something not readily available on the internet. Reliable sources that use the image would be helpful. Do you reckon that there would anyway of finding third party images that might possibly contain the poster/placard? Also i would be grateful if images of other placards at that rally could be found to find whether this was a small minority at this rally or perhaps a larger group.

Whilst that is being done i wanted to find out on what the consensus view is on what New Antisemitism is? I have read the article and the previous discussion and attempted to get a proper understanding but i wanted to ensure that this was current.

PS any sources you find can you please post in the section at the top of the mediation talk page. Seddon69 (talk) 16:10, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Following discussion at the mediation talk page, i would like to bring up a suggestion that until the end of the mediation to remove both images from the article. There is currently no real consensus on the images so in the interests of fairness it seems best to simply have no images. If you have any suggestions or comments then please come to the mediation talk page to be discussed. The discussion will be open for around 5 days if there are no problems. But the discussion will go on if there is ongoing discussion. ŠξÞÞøΛ talk 00:55, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

I know that this may sound a bit "un-wiki", but this article has been in dispute for a long time, and these editing conditions seem to be being successful at helping to restore stability, so I'd like to keep them in place for awhile longer.

Thises and Thatses[edit]

Hi Liftarn, I had a question and offer:

  • I noticed that your signature tends not to include a date. Is something broken in your signature formatting? If so, I could potentially help you to debug it. Do you normally sign posts with three tildes, or four? ~~~~
  • I noticed that your talkpage is getting kind of long, and is currently over 100K. Some people's browsers start having trouble with anything over 32K. If you'd like, I could set up an archive bot for you? That would automatically archive anything older than a certain date (like 30 days), and then you wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. :)

Let me know, Elonka 15:42, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I usually sign with three tildes. Page archived. An archive bot might be a good idea. // Liftarn (talk)
Sure, happy to set one up for you.  :) Also, could I ask you to try and sign with four tildes, to date your posts? Especially if setting up a bot, they'd need a date to be able to tell how old a particular post was. --Elonka 00:55, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
