I saw your edits and comments on the Barney Oldfield article. The article does need some serious expansion and citations. Feel free to edit it relentlessly. Be careful not to use words like "brutal" or "stirring victory" because they don't meet the formal tone of an encyclopedia. I agree that the International Motorsports is not an ideal source because it has the problems that you have indicated. He deserves a better article than what exists right now. Royalbroil 14:32, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Great, I can't wait to see what you find for the article. I have done reviews for articles at the highest levels, so I am available to review if you want. Welcome to WikiProject American Open Wheel Racing! Royalbroil 00:51, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Unspecified source/license for Image:Nationals Running 24 hours.jpg[edit]

Copyright-excl.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Nationals Running 24 hours.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by MifterBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. --MifterBot (TalkContribsOwner) 01:59, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm so frustrated. Your message says go to the image and click "edit" to add a tag to provide copyright status. The problem is that there is NO edit link. If there is anyone out there, please help. Markdill (talk) 02:55, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Ernie_Moross_JPEG.JPG[edit]

If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 08:50, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Your submission at Articles for creation[edit]

Citation-needed-vertical.svg

I noticed your submission in Articles for creation, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Jeff Belskus. Thanks! It will be reviewed by a volunteer soon.

Before it can be added to Wikipedia, your submission should have references. All articles on Wikipedia should have inline, numbered references after facts, showing the 'reliable source' (a newspaper, book, etc.) where the information can be checked, so that all information is verifiable.

Here's a video tutorial - hit play, then right-click for "full screen".

Here's an example of how to add references:

Chzz is 98 years old.<ref> "The book of Chzz", Aardvark Books, 2009. </ref>

He likes tea.<ref> Smith, John. "[http://foonews.com/Article42 Interview with Chzz]", Foo News, 1 April 2010. Retrieved 2011-05-22. </ref>

== References ==

{{reflist}}

That makes the references automatically display as small numbers[1] which will link to the details in the section titled == References == at the end. You can see that example in action here.

Please add references to your submission, which will be reviewed as soon as possible. See also, Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners. If you need any help, just put {{helpme}} at the end of this page, followed by a question.

Best, ChzzBot IV (talk) 20:14, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

References question[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Thanks for your feedback but I must be missing something. My article on Jeff Belskus includes 4 references specific to his roles serving on the boards of several institutions. What else do I need to do?

Thank you. Markdill (talk) 15:04, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

If you read the information above correctly, you would notice that your references aren't inline. please reread the tips and transform your references. Please remove also the extensively use of the external links. mabdul 17:29, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. I see what you mean. I have used the reference HTML and numbers are popping up in-line, but it is not generating the references in the references section. What am I doing wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Markdill (talkcontribs)

Luckily I still had your talkpage on my watchlist. It looks good, so I moved it to mainspace. Royalbroil 02:24, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

It appears from your recent editing that your computer may have a potentially unwanted program installed on it. You are leaving dubious adware code on pages you edit, this could be due to a malicious or faulty browser extension. It is recommended you follow a reputable guide for cleaning your browser/computer to deal with this issue. Dysklyver 20:03, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

Hello, Markdill! Welcome to Wikipedia.

I'm just dropping you a quick note to let you know about a potential issue. I've noticed on your recent edits (such as this one), you appear to be attempting to add some JavaScripting to the page. I don't know if you are aware you're doing this, but it's not good.

If you are intentionally doing it, please stop.

If you're not intentionally doing this, please take a look at your browser and extensions and disable any you don't recognize and/or you didn't install. I'm more than willing to help with this process if you're uncomfortable with it.

Thank you so much! ~ Matthewrbowker Say something · What I've done 20:07, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
