Welcome!

Hello, Memo232, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question and then place {{helpme}} after the question on your talk page. Again, welcome! 

Just one note - while you're moving things away from "politically correct" neutrality, this is not the right thing to do in some cases - the spokesman is a spokesman, the girlfriends are girlfriends. That's a matter of wording; however e.g. for Hazel Blears, it is incorrect to edit her article to call her "Chairman" - both by gender and by seat (see Talk:Hazel Blears). --Firien need help? 15:12, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:H N Gresley.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:H N Gresley.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 '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 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. FASTILYsock (TALK) 20:42, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Patrick Carnegy and Jill Gomez[edit]

I see nothing wrong with saying "his/her partner". However, in this case I'm not sure whether or not they are married, as some sources say they are. [1] [2] Do you know anything about this? Of course, if they are married, Ms Gomez is now a countess. JRawle (Talk) 21:16, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Metric modifications[edit]

Please do not change metric into imperial units (or vice-versa). This introduces inaccuracy into Wikipedia, which is not wanted. Eg. in the case of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link this is a pure-metric railway (signalling, chainage, speed-limits, super-elevation, gauge). Thank you. —Sladen (talk) 22:22, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Linda Regan[edit]

Hi, I reverted the date of birth you added to Linda Regan. IMDB is not considered a reliable source because its content is user-submitted and not always fact-checked. In this case, another editor has previously commented that the 1959 date seems unlikely - she was playing adult parts from 1970 onwards. My guess is that whoever submitted the date to IMDB had her confused with Linda 'Regan' Blair. --GenericBob (talk) 23:18, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:H N Gresley.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:H N Gresley.jpg. 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 in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 04:40, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
