Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions to the article OGSM, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition was deleted under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text—which means allowing other people to modify it—then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You may also e-mail or mail the Foundation to release the content. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more.

While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright concerns very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here. You can also leave a message on my talk page. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 11:17, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Russian Doll User Model[edit]

Proposed deletion of Russian Doll User Model[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Russian Doll User Model has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article is not encyclopaedic.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Rockwatch[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Rockwatch requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. reddogsix (talk) 07:10, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

License tagging for File:TROwen.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:TROwen.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. 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) 22:06, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:TROwen.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:TROwen.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Grégoire Maertens[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Grégoire Maertens. The community has decided that all new biographies of living persons must contain a reliable source that supports at least one statement made about the person in the article as per our verifiability policy. Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:10, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous ! I was only translating the content of a similar article from the West-Flemish and Esperanto Wikipedias. Also, Grégoire Maertens is listed as having been president in your own article President of the World Esperanto Association. I'll try to dig up any supporting on-line articles I can find, but they are likely to be either in Flemish or Esperanto; nevertheless, your approach across the various flavours of Wikipedia appears inconsistent to say the least.

July 2014[edit]

Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to South Wales Geologists' Association. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:51, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

You didn't put any reason for the change. As such I assumed you used a different template and accidentally deleted the links. It's the furthest from my intention to spread spam anywhere, and I'm definitely not into SEO, but since I'm the Publicity Officer for the SWGA, I feel some degree of ownership for the article, and I want it to be as useful as possible (without contravening Wikipedia rules, of course). Would it be out of order if there was at least a link to the Facebook group ? That's where our more lively discussions take place, and as such fills a different role from the SWGA website.

As a final comment, don't threaten me on the assumption that I'm spamming. What I did was an honest mistake, not being that much of a regular contributor to Wikipedia, and I don't like it when people place motives on my on-line behaviour that just aren't there. --MarnixR (talk) 12:43, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

There was no threat, and no assumption of your motives; the template-text above is informational. A Facebook link, if included, should go in teh "External links" section, not the infobox. But given your declaration, please be mindful of WP:COI and WP:OWN. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:57, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
The fact that I'm the Publicity officer for the SWGA does not have to imply that I have ownership for the article. However, surely you understand that it makes me feel more protective for the article's content, and the possibility of vandalism masquerading as edits. After all, it was not clear from your intervention what your motives were to make the changes. That's why a word of explanation would have been nice. --MarnixR (talk) 22:19, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
