2010 Changes in Manx Government[edit]

I have recently made amendments to the pages for Annie Craine and the IOM treasury, taking account of her appointment as Treasury Minister in April 2010. I just thought that you might like (and have the skills I don't have) to update the Politics and Government of the Isle of Man box that appears down the right hand side.

Manx elections[edit]

Only Onchan to go for 2006. Meanwhile, have you heard of "Isle of Man Election Results 1919-1979" by Tom Sherratt? It 'does exactly what it says on the tin', and I've got a copy which might complete the results. Fys. “Ta fys aym”. 23:36, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes that would be great. Sounds exactly what is needed....Manxy3 12:41, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Mike Kerruish[edit]

Hi, I'm the French writer for the page of fr:John Michael Kerruish. I have noticed you produced a picture of him. Unfortunately I'm unable to use it for the French WP. Would you accept to put it on Wikimedia Commons ? Thanks in advance. Jmdesbois 09:23, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

William Christian (Manx)[edit]

The version that you keep reverting to is inproperly formatted and is, as it is, worthless. It gives almost no information on the second person that you say should be at the name. It cites zero references for him that show that what is stated on the page, which is almost nothing, is correct. It also thus has no references, or indications, as to why this second person meets the requirements at WP:NOTE for being included on the project. All these problems need to be dealt with. The page cannot be left in the state you are trying to put it in. I will, when done typing this, revert once more to the redirect, so that the page will be a proper functional pointer to at least one of the people in question until you have the time to create a proper page on the second person of the similar name.

Basically, with two people with similar names, the project needs to figure out a distinguishing difference between them that will let them each have a separately named page. Then a disambiguation page is created at the common name that applies to both. In this case, based on your changes, the common page appears to be William Christian (Manx). If so, this would be where the disambiguation should be built. And the new page for your second William should be given anothe page name that has something to distinguish it from either the disambiguation page or the other William.

But the disambig is not really needed yet. Disambiguation pages are a navigation tool between similarly named pages on the project. Until you are able to create a proper page for the second William, there is no real point to building a disambig at William Christian (Manx), and so it really should remain as a redirect. But when you have a page up somewhere else for the second William, then it would be quite proper to turn William Christian (Manx) into a disambig page. - TexasAndroid 18:19, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Let's take this discussion to the talk page of William Christian (Manx). This is looking to turn more from general "Wiki how to" to specific discussion of the specific case. I'll write my next comment over there shortly. - TexasAndroid 19:11, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Please Use Edit Summaries[edit]

When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field, especially for big edits or when you are making subtle but important changes, like changing dates or numbers. Thank you. Jmlk17 11:28, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Tynwald.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Tynwald.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).

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 15:23, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Non-free use disputed for Image:John Corlett.jpg[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:John Corlett.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read carefully the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content and then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:49, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Future biographical articles[edit]

Hey manxy3, great work on padding out Manx officials, your work so far shows much-needed wiki-dedication! Just a couple of thoughts for next time you start a biographical article, to integrate it better with the rest of the encyclopaedia:

  • Try to always add birth and date categories. These take the form [[Category:XXXX births]] and [[Category:XXXX deaths]]. If you don't know either of them, use [[Category:Year of birth missing]] or [[Category:Year of death missing]], and if the person is still alive, use [[Category:Living people]]. More categories mean that an article is more likely to be visited, meaning it is more likely to be checked, updated and maintained, and is more likely to be of a good quality.
  • Try to add a Default sort tag to each biographical article you created. These come in the form {{DEFAULTSORT:Surname, Firstname}}. This means that when the article gets placed in a navigational category, it will be listed in alphabetical order, as is wikipedia policy, so the categories look better.

Otherwise, congratulations on your good work, and good luck in the future! Hard or good work never goes unnoticed! Jdcooper 18:44, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Tony_Brown.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Tony_Brown.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rockfang (talk) 22:01, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Image permission problem with Image:NeilKinrade.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:NeilKinrade.jpg, which you've sourced to http://www.iomonline.co.im/ViewArticle2.aspx?SectionID=870&ArticleID=674546. I noticed that that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the image (or other media 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 GFDL 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 did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the image to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the image 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 in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the image's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image 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.

RETIRED?[edit]

Hi Manxy3. You have not edited the Wikipedia since 9 May 2008 and have not responded to the request to reference a large number of BLP you have created. Have you retired permanently from this project?--Kudpung (talk) 03:00, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:22, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
