Welcome!

Welcome to Wikipedia, MarkKB! My name is Ryan, aka Acetic Acid. I noticed that you were new and haven't received any messages yet. I just wanted to see how you were doing. Wikipedia can be a little intimidating at first, since it uses different formatting than other sites that use HTML and CSS. In the long run, though, you'll find that the WikiSyntax is a lot easier and faster than those other ways. Here are a few links to get you started:

There are a lot of policies and guides to read, but I highly recommend reading over those first. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Please be sure to sign your name on Talk Pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, along with a link to your user page. This way, others know when you left a message and how to find you. It's easier than having to type out your name, right? :)

I hope you enjoy contributing to Wikipedia. We can use all the help we can get! Have a nice day. Sincerely, Acetic'Acid 13:50, August 31, 2005 (UTC)

Kim Possible[edit]

Hey MarkKB! Good job on adding the Kim Possible template to all the pages! Only one word...templates can simply be written as {{template}} instead of {{Template:template}}. That should make you life a little easier. Anyways, if you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Have fun editing! =D Jumping cheese Contact 04:34, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Great job on the template! I like how it unifies all the Kim Possible pages. ^_^ Jumping cheese Contact 19:10, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

The template was badly designed, with style errors and varying levels of notability for the characters, example Tara was on allies, but Felix wasn't. I didn't change many links within it, just the design. Sorry, Highway Grammar Enforcer! 10:29, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:FFnet-27Jan07.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:FFnet-27Jan07.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

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. Chris Btalk 15:13, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the rationale. -- Chris Btalk 09:43, 7 October 2007 (UTC)


Redirect of Disneyania 6[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Disneyania 6, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Disneyania 6 is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Disneyania 6, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:FFnet-27Jan07.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:FFnet-27Jan07.png. 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:08, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Need for Speed[edit]

Any source to your last edit? --MrStalker (talk) 18:48, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Sure thing. From Alex Ward's twitter feed (sourced from [1]):
"Hmm nobody worked out that our NFS game is a shooter in the style of Mad Dog McCree then....this lists what I am playing not making fellas.." There you have it, no, the Criterion Need for Speed project isn't going all 3DO; it's just what he's playing at the moment.
From a post at NFS Unlimited.net ([2]):
Alex Ward here. I just wanted to say that my comments on Twitter were related to what games I was playing that day at Criterion HQ. They got picked up and reported incorrectly in the press.
We booted up my 3DO here in the office and spent an hour playing the original game.
We did redline it. We did make it pay. We were 'returning' to playing the game after not looking at it in a while. That's alll it was. It's much too early to be talking about our game. We'll talk at the apppropriate time next year.
--MarkKB (talk) 11:08, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Good, thanks. Please leave a link on the talk page next time :) --MrStalker (talk) 12:40, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Cool, no prob.
Personally, I thought it was common knowledge and thus no discussion on the talk-page needed, but looking at the number of publications that picked up the tweet vs. those that published corrections, I seem to be quite mistaken. ^^; Oh well! --MarkKB (talk) 04:02, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
