using the 'Willamette Meteorite' photo[edit]

Dear Loadmaster,

I'm writing on behalf of Studio-X ISTANBUL which is an initiative of Columbia University Architecture Department. As Studio-X Istanbul, we will be publishing a book about a natural history museum that had been established in 19th Century in İstanbul. If you're interested I can also provide more information about the book.,

Anyhow, we're willing to use one of the meteorite images in wikipedia. Though we're trying to contact the relevant person in order to use them. Will it be enough to make a clear attribution in the 'credits' part of the book?

Looking forward for your answer. Best, Ege

Studio-X Istanbul Meclis-i Mebusan 35a 34427, Salıpazarı, Istanbul, Turkey T:+90 212 292 07 47 www.studio-xistanbul.org — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.70.182.176 (talk) 13:36, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

Yes. (I assume you're referring to File:Willamette-meteorite-7637.jpg and File:Willamette-meteorite-7588.jpg.) As per the Creative Commons licensing, all you have to do is mention the source of the image somewhere in the publication (i.e., it does not have to be located next to the image iteself). Mentioning my name and optionally "Wikimedia Commons" is sufficient credit. See Commons:User:Loadmaster/permissions and Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia for more details. — Loadmaster (talk) 15:37, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

The entire section containing the image was removed in this edit. I added it back, since it depicts the actual product discussed in the article section. — Loadmaster (talk) 18:40, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Dispute Notification[edit]

I have filed a dispute on the article of Fidel Castro. I do this because it is recommended "If you begin a discussion of another user on a common notice board, it is expected that you will notify the subject user by posting a message on their talk page". Do not report me as vandal. This is the only instance in which I will write something here. If this is not the way to do it, let me know how it is done. Jhaydn2016 (talk) 17:01, 29 November 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jhaydn2016 (talkcontribs)

If you are saying that I wrote something directed towards you on the Fidel Castro talk page, you are mistaken; and I certainly have not reported you as a vandal. I see that you responded to my question in the "Deaths" section, but other than that I have had no interaction with you on that page (or any other page). Since several other editors responded to some of your posts there, I can only assume that you should be directing this notice to one of them instead of me. — Loadmaster (talk) 22:29, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Addendum — Ah, I see you mean the dispute opened here. Yes, I did also raise the question about whether Castro should properly be designated as a "dictator". I believe he should. — Loadmaster (talk) 22:36, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Do not try to re-instate your edits after you opened a discussion which did not reach a clear consensus and then went dormant. That is aggressive or sneaky behavior, which is not appreciated on Wikipedia, and can lead to restriction of your edit privileges. Debresser (talk) 21:54, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

I assume you are talking about my recent edit to Hebrew calendar. See my response on the talk page. — Loadmaster (talk) 17:05, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of RWTS (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article RWTS (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Per WP:2DABS

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. Boleyn (talk) 05:55, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

That's fine. I really just wanted to clarify that RWTS could also refer to the 'Read/Write Track Sector' subroutine of Apple DOS. A hatnote should suffice. — Loadmaster (talk) 16:57, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
