About Black Zero[edit]

Hello,

I agree with you, megaman's zero isnt related to the article at all, and it deserves its own article with a disambiguation for the black zero of superman. Unfortunately i am new here and not sure about how to do that. Do you know how to do it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Taikanatur (talkcontribs) 16:06, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Islam in the United States[edit]

Macduff,

Thanks for your comment on Talk:Islam in the United States. We need more voices over there. Anyway I think there was some miscommunication about what I was suggesting regarding the only instance in which I propose that those two publications are acceptable as "sources." Please take a look at my response. Thanks and best.PelleSmith 22:53, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Lead on, Macduff![edit]

I am extremely thrilled about the ingenious device you have placed on the Leatherstocking Tales that facilitates sorting them either in the chronological order of their composition or that of their subject matter. Did you come up with that yourself? How helpful! This could be used on many other pages of Wikipedia. "Necessity is the mother of invention!" I am so pleased.--Drboisclair (talk) 21:15, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

The da Vinci Barnstar[edit]

Vitruvian Barnstar.png The da Vinci Barnstar
I, Drboisclair, hereby award the Da Vinci Barnstar to User Macduff for his outstanding technical contribution to Wikipedia, especially on the Leatherstocking Tales page. A heartfelt congratulations!--Drboisclair (talk) 21:20, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Lidia Zamenhof[edit]

Yes the article doesn't state anything that she had Jewish parents, so the cats are currently unsupported. Secondly, she became a Baha'i around the age of 21, so she was no longer Jewish. Regards, -- Jeff3000 (talk) 17:47, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Commodore Data[edit]

Sorry about that, I thought it was some remnants of vandalism past. I did look at ma:Data though - no mention of it there, although I suppose it's on MA somewhere. Jobjörn (talk) 00:31, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

The Day the Earth Stood Still[edit]

I saw that you created The Day the Earth Stood Still (disambiguation), which is redirected to from The Day The Earth Stood Still. However, The Day the Earth Stood Still (notice the uncapitalized "the") redirects to The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951 film). We should probably try to aim for some consistancy there. :) We can either have "The Day the Earth Stood Still" be the disambiguation page (and have all capitalizations redirect to that), or, if the 1951 version of the film is legitimately the primary topic, then it would be located at "The Day the Earth Stood Still", with a hatnote to the other version of the film, no disambiguation page needed. -- Natalya 02:08, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

John Edwards[edit]

So help me, I have never crushed more on an edit than your recent interjection of the word 'may' into the section on JE's National Enquirer imbroglio. That little 3-letter word turned a POV sentence back into a NPOV one. *swoon* Ahem. Carry on. |EBY| (talk) 05:11, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Lisa Druck[edit]

I've reverted your blanking of the redirect Lisa Druck. The target of the redirect was Story of My Life (novel). Your reason for deleting the redirect was that "Lisa Druck isn't even mentioned anywhere in the article." I agree with you on that, but a casual Google search shows that "Lisa Druck" could be a plausible search term for the novel. Lisa Druck is the former name of Rielle Hunter, who was the inspiration for this novel as seen in this link. That is why this redirect doesn't qualify under CSD R3. If you still believe that this redirect is invalid, please nominate the redirect for deletion at Wikipedia:Redirects for deletion. Cheers, Cunard (talk) 04:28, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:Supesredblue.PNG[edit]

You tagged Image:Supesredblue.PNG for speedy deletion because it is "a copyright infringement of [1]", which I take to be your website based on your edit summary. However, your website indicates that the image is "by Curt Swan and George Klein, Superman #162, 1963". If this is so, then you're probably not the original copyright holder since both Swan and Klein are long deceased. Hence I have declined your deletion request. If you object, please leave a note on User talk:Pegasus explaining why so. Thanks! Pegasus «C¦ 02:52, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

I have replied to your question on my talk page. It's in the page history - here is the link for convenience. Pegasus «C¦ 02:19, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Better source request for File:K-metal_cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:K-metal_cover.jpg. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Rockfang (talk) 02:19, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:K-metal_cover.jpg[edit]

Orphaned non-free image File:Tales from Earthsea region3.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Tales from Earthsea region3.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore will not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used once again.
  • If you recieved this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to somewhere on your talk page.

Agree with deletion. Admin may proceed. Macduff (talk) 13:15, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of November Group (band)[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 November Group (band) 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Hoponpop69 (talk) 17:39, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
