Welcome!

Hello, Machina-x, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome! 

Regarding your three edits, I believe they were well intentioned, but unfortunantely, incorrect. In your edit to Death Note, you accidently removed a category link that looked like this: [[Category:Manga]]. These links help categorize pages and do not show up on the article, find out more here: Wikipedia:Categorization. Furthermore, linking to an image on Wikipedia is not necessary: you can inline it in the article, find out more here: Wikipedia:Picture tutorial.

Regarding your edit to Fullmetal Alchemist, I appreciate your desire to help interested readers get copies of the manga (indeed, I too have read manga at similar places), it simply is not what Wikipedia is about and is, technically, illegal. Share the links with your friends, but don't post them here.

Finally, your image does not have any license notice on it. In this case, the appropriate template to add is {{Comicpanel}}. However, in the future, you should crop and lower the resolution of images you post.

I don't mean to be overly critical, but this is a bit of a crash course into Wikipedia policy. If you have any more questions, please ask me. I hope you decide to stay. Thanks! — Ambush Commander(Talk) 23:41, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:DeathNoteL.png)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DeathNoteL.png. 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 04:08, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
