Orphaned non-free image File:Players ball southpark.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Players ball southpark.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 "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 any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. JaGatalk 20:57, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Lady Gaga discography[edit]

Hello. I have edited Lady Gaga discography to restore contentious writer-only credits, with comments at the talk page. As a previous contributor, you may wish to reply to my points or otherwise continue the discussion. Cheers, --Peter Farago (talk) 08:15, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Fair use?[edit]

You wrote on the sherlock holmes film article:

"Release: this is far too liberal use of other people's copyrighted work. just because it's a single sentence doesn't mean its legitimate use to steal it."

That's a bit harsh. All Rotten Tomatoes is doing is aggregating other peoples reviews. It's not an especially good summary you deleted so I've left it out but more often the summary is a sentence with several clauses and it is reasonable to paraphrase part and directly quote some of the sentence. Paraphrasing mostly works but a direct quote avoids editors straying into their own point of view, or being accused of original research by other editors. -- Horkana (talk) 14:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Whoever put the Rotten Tomatoes quote in lifted the entire consensus summary. The "consensus" summary makes up the entirety of a major section of the RottenTomatoes write-up of each movie. If we lift their score AND their consensus summary, we have essentially lifted the main portion of their entire original work, I think that is far too much, especially when it makes up such a large part of our article as well. I suppose if the Sherlock Holmes article were to be significantly expanded, in particular the "critical reception" section, then it wouldn't be quite as blatant I suppose.

Edits to Jeff Bridges Page[edit]

Rather than make inflammatory statements when you make a change to someone's work (not mine by the way), please reference specifics as to why you are making the change. Your approach comes across as needlessly harsh. I see no reason in WP:Lead which validates your argument. If you have a difference of opinion, please enlighten the rest of us.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Richard dawkin433.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Richard dawkin433.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [1], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Silly title[edit]

Hi,

there is a possibility to change the title of Eigenvalue, eigenvector and eigenspace. We will not be able to call it "Eigenvalue", as you suggested, as our only possibility to get consensus (and to avoid other changes in the future) is to follow the literature, which almost always uses "Eigenvalues and eigenvectors" for similar articles or textbook chapters.

I also explained in Talk:Eigenvalue, eigenvector and eigenspace that, in my opinion, eigenvalues and eigenvectors as two distinct concepts. We first compute eigenvalues, then eigenvectors, but this does does not mean that "eigenvector" is a concept contained in the definition of "eigenvalue". Indeed, I am able to informally and effectively define the concept of eigenvector without referring to the eigenvalue. I just need to refer to the concept of direction.

Would you mind to give us your opinion? Do you agree to use "Eigenvalues and eigenvectors", the same title used in the literature? Without your support, the title would probably remain as silly as it was when you wrote it was silly. Please answer in Talk:Eigenvalue, eigenvector and eigenspace. Thank you

Declined A7 speedies[edit]

Hi, MarcelB612. Articles such as Caitlin Hill, Cory Williams and Gary Brolsma which have had previous AFD discussions do not qualify for speedy tagging on notability issues. Also, articles such as Chris Crocker (Internet celebrity) and Christiaan Van Vuuren have notability asserted by the numerous RS references -- and also do not qualify for A7 speedy or notability tags. The A7 speedy and NOTE tags have been removed from these pages. Let me know if you have questions. Cheers. CactusWriter (talk) 23:57, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited I Ain't a Judas, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Judas tree (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.
