File source problem with File:Dert-1999-star.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Dert-1999-star.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 02:55, 21 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. FASTILYsock(TALK) 02:55, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments[edit]

Hi Brain, In preparation for Wiki Loves Monuments, where the UK will be taking part in 2013 for the first time various lists of Grade I and Grade II* listed buildings are being created and revised. The competition runs in September, but in the meantime there is some preparatory work to do. Locally see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Somerset#WLM, Grade II* listed buildings in Somerset & work needed. nationally being coordinated by User:MichaelMaggs (I think) but day to day work being done by User:KTC for WikimediaUK. This has included getting lists (with loads of data errors) from EH & Scotish, Welsh & NI boards & using some script (beyond my techunical expertise) to create lists of Grade I & II* buildings, where wp doesn't already have them - I personally think more work could be done with the scripts to reduce the human effort needed as we are talking thousands of lists & articles (see Listed buildings in the United Kingdom). I think there is potential in this and other projects to bring in HEI's, QUANGOs etc.— Rod talk 10:20, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi Brian, thanks for helping out at the training in Oxford last week. I've summarised the feedback we got and I thought you might like to see what they said, so here's the link. I hope to see you at future events! Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 13:27, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited BS 8878, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page BSI (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

image requested template for Bath, Somerset[edit]

Hi Brian, Following our discussion at the Train the trainers event about having a template and accompanying category for "Wikipedia requested photographs in Bath, Somerset" I've done a bit of digging. According to Template:Image requested this is quite easy, however it would need the Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Bath, Somerset which doesn't exist yet. If we create a cat with no entries it is likely to be deleted as unneeded. Looking at Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Somerset there don't appear to be any current Bath related articles tagged as needing photos. Do you know of any?— Rod talk 16:32, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Lisbk, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:44, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
