I can't be sure because I'm not great at reading the change logs, but I believe you added a note to the fly-by-wire article about the Airbus 320 crash. I'm not sure this is a useful addition to the article. The pilot was _clearly_ at fault in this case, he deliberately disconnected safety devices in the cockpit, got lost, flew illegally low and then powered up far too late to clear the trees he was heading for. The fly-by-wire system was blameless, although he refused to take responsibility for the accident. In fact he claimed that he did not fly too low (below 150 feet) and that it was the fault of faulty instruments, but in the cockpit voice recording you can clearly hear the altimeter telling him he is below 50 feet. He was showing off and crashed his plane. User:Maury Markowitz

License tagging for File:Countdown frame 1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Countdown frame 1.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 22:07, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Moving a page[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Back to God's Country a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Back To God's Country (1919 film). This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Orphaned non-free media (File:Countdown frame 1.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Countdown frame 1.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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:08, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Tarantino[edit]

It's possible that I jumped the gun. I had a quick look at "Tarantino" on Wiki but nothing useful there. I won't go on the barricades if you want to revert the revert. OK? Thanks.Keith-264 (talk) 12:40, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Disambiguation link notification for June 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Orbiter X, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages John Carson and Andrew Crawford (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.
