Replaceable fair use File:St. Margaret of Antioch, Bowers Gifford, Essex.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:St. Margaret of Antioch, Bowers Gifford, Essex.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 07:27, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:St. Margaret of Antioch, Bowers Gifford, Essex.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:St. Margaret of Antioch, Bowers Gifford, Essex.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) 04:20, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Major Braid Cooper parked on roof.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Major Braid Cooper parked on roof.jpg, which you've sourced to http://www.documentingreality.com/forum/f10/indy-formula-one-fatal-non-fatal-crash-photos-stop-motion-color-b-w-frames-109345/index40.html (UK copyright is 70 years). I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license 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.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:36, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

(Boreham Circuit)[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of (Boreham Circuit), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://wecc.co.uk/Archives/Boreham/WECC-Boreham50.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 23:16, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of (Boreham Circuit)[edit]

Hello LordAnon of Essex,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged (Boreham Circuit) for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to rewrite it in your own words, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, Cdtew (talk) 23:19, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Boreham Circuit[edit]

Hello LordAnon of Essex,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Boreham Circuit, may be copied from http://wecc.co.uk/Archives/Boreham/WECC-Boreham50.htm. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 23:26, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

January 2013[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to July 29, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 00:15, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Lisa De Leeuw[edit]

Your addition to Lisa De Leeuw has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. If you are the copyright holder, please read Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more information on uploading your material to Wikipedia.

Hello, LordAnon of Essex, and thank you for your contributions!

Some text in an article that you worked on 1991 Sugo 500km, appears to be directly copied from another Wikipedia article, 1991 Sugi 500km. Please take a minute to double-check that you've properly attributed the source text in your edit summary.

Racegraphy is not an inverted word, this is used in all good Motor Racing Biographes to detail the racing careers of drivers

The only instance of "Raceography" that I can find on Google that is not something someone made up is your very article for Eje Elgh. Pray tell what "good motor racing biographies" use this supposed word. The359 (Talk) 09:22, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Eje Elgh - Raceography[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Eje Elgh - Raceography has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:NOTSTATSBOOK. Wikipedia is not a place for dumping massive tables of raw results for arbitrarily selected series.

While all constructive 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.

Template:S-sport[edit]

Hello! It's clearly seen in WP:SBS/G, that this template intended for notable titles and other honours, that only could be in biography articles. So you can't include this template in article about race or racing season. The only way succession box can be used in this article is looking like this 2008 Singapore Grand Prix.

British flags on motor racing articles[edit]

I've readded all the British flags to 1987 British Formula Three season and 1988 British Formula Three season. The long-held consensus on Wikipedia:WikiProject Motorsport is that subnational flags should not be used and that racing drivers are to be identified by the passport nationality, indicated on their racing license. Since the MSA is the only motorsport sanctioning body in the United Kingdom, all British drivers have to be identified with British flags, not English, Scottish or otherwise. --Pc13 (talk) 23:25, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I intend to nominate most of those race articles for deletion, or bring it up in the WikiProject for somebody else with time to do it (the process is kind of morose these days). Because Wikipedia is not a collection of statistics, articles which are mostly data tables are discouraged. Notability is also a concern, with national championships' individual races not being considered notable enough, not even British F3. The European F2 races are good to stay though. --Pc13 (talk) 11:28, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

I would never suggest that Formula Three racing is "of a third tier semi-amateur series is a long way below notability standards for motor racing", and should be included on Wikipedia. This annual championship is a very professional and many drivers and team do progress into Formula One/Grand Prix racing. --LordAnon of Essex (talk) 08:00, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Of course it is third tier - it is right there in the name - Formula THREE. And what the competitors do afterwards adds notability to the competitors, not to the Formula Three series they raced in growing up. An under 18s athletics tournament in Jamaica does not become notable because a teenage Usain Bolt was in it. Notability is not driven by how important components achieve afterwards it is driven by how important this subject was achieved. Put it this rather crude way - do Formula 3 races ever appear on TV evening news? --Falcadore (talk) 10:45, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

So, what you are saying, that it is not shown on TV evening news, instead only on say Channel Four the weekend after the event, it should not be included? If that's the case, then ONLY Formula One would be listed, nothing else, not even World Endurance Championship, World Rally Championship or even IndyCar. Throwing the net even further, may we suggest the removal of the any national sporting championship which does not get TV coverage, say the FA Vase/Trophy or British Swimming Championships? Please confirm. --LordAnon of Essex (talk) 22:51 20 November 2013 (UTC)

No that is not what I am saying. Instead of leaping to an assumed conclusion, you could have just answered the question. It was a yes/no.
Each article has to stand on its own merits - i.e. the merits of just the 1977 Vandervell British F3 Championship Rd.1 - not the events of the Indy 500 race Danny Sullivan goes on to win many years later.
Did you have a read of any of the guidelines/policies listed in the deletion request? Here are some links:
Wikipedia:Notability (sports)
Wikipedia:Notability
Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not#Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information.
Here's hoping you get a better idea of the kind of event that is significant enough for wikipedia publication. --Falcadore (talk) 23:49, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1966 Trophées de France season, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lotus (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

1967 Monaco Grand Prix[edit]

Hi LordAnon of Essex. FYI, I have reverted the infobox and results table of 1967 Monaco Grand Prix to the standard format used for all the other World Championship F1 races. If you believe the standard format should be changed, you are more than welcome to raise the topic for discussion at the Formula One WikiProject. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 00:55, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Also, be careful with your wikilinking. Don't link every single instance of a driver's name or his car, or his team. Link the first instance only. If you could go back and remove all the excess linkage from the articles you've worked on, that would save me doing it. Cheers, Bretonbanquet (talk) 22:26, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

IMDb as a reliable source[edit]

The IMDb generally isn't considered a suitable reliable source because of its user-submitted nature (see WP:RS/IMDB and WP:ELPEREN). I reverted your addition to the Peter Ostrum article because we have to be especially careful when using reliable sources on pages that are biographies of living persons. If you have any questions or concerns, I'll keep an eye here for your reply. — fourthords | =Λ= | 22:17, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alphonse Philippe Mouzon[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Alphonse Philippe Mouzon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. TheLongTone (talk) 23:32, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to September 4, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 11:41, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kiera Winters[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Kiera Winters, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

  • It appears to be a clear copyright infringement. (See section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) 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. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

    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 verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. However, even if you use one of these processes to release copyrighted material to Wikipedia, it still needs to comply with the other policies and guidelines to be eligible for inclusion. If you would like any assistance with this, you can ask a question at the help desk.

  • It appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), individual animal, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. (See section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.  GILO   A&E 21:28, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Dana Lynn, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion.

Copyright violations at the Stirling Moss article[edit]

Most of the text with which you replaced the pre-existing text at Stirling Moss has been deleted (I have pinged you at the article talk page) where I have noted the removal), as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text, or images borrowed from other websites, or printed material without a verifiable license. You should write articles in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously. Persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Writegeist (talk) 08:14, 12 November 2015 (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.

Copyright violations at the Juan Manuel Fangio article[edit]

Hello again. It appears that, beginning with this edit, you added content to the Juan Manuel Fangio article which repeats verbatim—and near-verbatim—significant portions of the BBC source that you cited for it. Would you be willing to revisit the article and remove this copyvio and also any others that you may have added subsequently? (I haven’t checked any further into the article.) For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text, or images borrowed from other websites, or printed material without a verifiable license—you already know all this, from the several previous copyvio notices posted to your talk page. You also know that you should write articles in your own words; and you have been warned several times that editors who persist in violating copyright will be being blocked from editing. I don't want to see that happen to you. Writegeist (talk) 07:33, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Copyright violations at the Giuseppe Farina article[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you add copyright protected material to Wikipedia, as you did at Giuseppe Farina. You were specifically warned against inserting copyright protected material by Writegeist on 8 December, and yet only one month later you added whole sentences drawn from copyright protected sources to the Farina article. This is utterly unacceptable editing behaviour. If you simply do not understand how copyright works and Wikipedia's policies relating to it, please reply here and I will do my best to help you understand. Pyrope 08:04, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Please help! My mistaken belief was that I could use snippets from articles. This that not so?

Hi. Most of the information you need is on the policy page WP:COPYRIGHT and its FAQ page. In brief, you should use external sources to provide information, but you can't use their words. If a source says "Driver Y won the Toytown GP despite his car turning into marshmallow on lap 30", you can't take this sentence and copy it in to Wikipedia. You take the essential elements of that sentence (Driver Y won; Toytown GP; marshmallow on lap 30) and make up your own form of words, for instance: "On the 30th lap of the Toytown GP, Driver Y's car turned to marshmallow. Despite this, he won the race." You'll notice that the construction of those two passages is completely different. This is because it isn't enough to just change a couple of words, as this is considered close paraphrasing and will still be a breach of the source's copyright. As a rule of thumb, if more than three words are in the identical order to the original you likely have a problem. The only exceptions to these rules are when you are directly and explicitly quoting a source. Quotations are used for short sections of text that are used when it is important to show that that a particular source used those particular words to comment on that particular subject. Quotations are normally used on Wikipedia to communicate opinions and points of view held on a topic, or a person's verbatim comments, and they are always clearly identified as quotations from a well-identified source, usually by using quotation marks with an adjacent inline citation.
On the topic of inline citations, one other thing that you are doing which makes your edits liable to deletion is that you are lumping all your sources together into a block at the end of a paragraph, rather than identifying which piece of information was sourced to each reference. Hence, if any piece of text is challenged it is difficult to accurately trace its verifiability and so will likely be deleted. Inline citations should be used to place the source reference directly adjacent to the text that it supports.[1] This second point is less serious than the copyright issues that you are having, but if you can learn to cite information properly it will also help in future situations where your editing and sourcing of information is challenged.
Please let me know if this all makes sense to you, and I'll be happy to try to clear up anything that I've left ambiguous. Bye for now. Pyrope 03:43, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Flags on motorsport articles[edit]

Hello LordAnon of Essex. I have noticed over the past few months that some of your edits have changed the flags or nationality used on a number of motorsport articles. Please note that there is a long standing convention to describe all drivers issued with a British racing licence by the FIA/MSA as a British racing driver, not English/Welsh/whatever, and to use the British flag to represent them. Similarly, the flag used for a race or circuit location should be the flag of the country, not that of the sub-national unit the race happens to take place in. Thanks.
