==Boston Legal/Selected biography==

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Boston Legal/Selected biography, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

License tagging for Image:BL Halloween.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BL Halloween.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 12:05, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Serie A 2007-08[edit]

Please stop adding "Result" sections on this article. The next Serie A list of teams is not definitive yet (there are still two places to fill, Napoli has never been promoted) and you cannot use fair use club logos on that article. Do it when the teams are definitive, not before. --Angelo 13:56, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Unblock IP address NOW[edit]

Portal links in article space[edit]

Please see WP:LAYOUT#See also about placement of Portal links (See also). Regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:12, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

What about Portal Links? There's nothing about Portal Links on your link! mattytay 05:43, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
IIRC, you were placing an autism portal at the top of many articles; per Layout (see link above), portals belong in See also. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 17:33, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, it makes more sense now!!! mattytay 17:36, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Sorry to put you through the extra work :-) SandyGeorgia (Talk) 17:38, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Regarding Trivia[edit]

In response to your query, I shall direct you to one of several trivia debates here. If you look through the discussion archives, you can find more such discussions. The fact is that so-called "trivia" sections are just that - trivial, and add nothing of factual importance to the article. As a result, Wikiproject Automobiles is phasing out "trivia" sections from all automotive articles. The most factually significant bits of information will be incorporated into the article itself, but the list itself must be removed, along with pop culture references (including film appearances and celebrity owners), which have been vetoed by members of the project. We thank you for your cooperation. Jagvar 05:16, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Adcblogo.gif[edit]

Image Copyright problem

This is an automated message from a robot. You have recently uploaded Image:Adcblogo.gif. 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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. 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. 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 specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:50, 7 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. If you believe you received this message in error, please notify the bot's owner.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:FK Pelister Logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:FK Pelister Logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 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 06:24, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Your Opinion Needed........[edit]

Your opinion is need for consensus, as to whether some new sections should be added to the article or not. While this is currently a hot issue on Dubai's talk page, me and User:AreJay are more or less on a deadlock on this issues of adding these new section, namely ...

  • Entertainment (Dubai is certainly a hub for concerts, musical shows, shopping festivals, bustling cinema's showing Bollywood and Hollywood's latest films and much more for the entertainment in Dubai, after its the sources of entertainment that attracts tourists to Dubai, or what attracts them, OIL ? )
  • Sports (Dubai is famous for hosting games from tennis championships to cricket from rugby to horse races that earn dubai alot of money and and it often got flooded by sports lovers)

  • Architecture (with sub-headings Skyline or cityscape and Parks , Its not any thing which is not famous, Dubai, no doubt have one of the most magnificent and fastest growing skyline in world, it have Architecture that are no doubt modern wonders of the world, the article should have its section, with main link to their main articles, after all can any one imagine the article of alexander the great with out his splendid conquests ?, so why Dubai with out its crown ?)

  • Tourism (Dubai is 8th most visited city in the world, and have several tourist attractions and events that attracts million of visitors every years, while all other most visited cities like Newyork, London, Bangkok have this section, Dubai's article is deprived of it, a section must be introduced by the heading tourism and their a brief introduction must be given with a main link to Tourism in Dubai. )

To give a summary of mine and User:Arejay's discussion, let me tell you that the above headings are suggested by me and they are also included in several feature article in wikipedia like....

These headings are strongly opposed by User:Arejay and thus we had a deadlock, a third opinion is needed about whether these headings should be added or not. I dont know why some one who is honest with Dubai's article can oppose addition of such an important section. To me its like you are snatching a crown from Dubai, one of the most famous cities in the world, the article really dont pay a due coverage to dubai, and rather seem to me an article of any ordinary city in Persian gulf !
