Re: Hellsing screenshots[edit]

I can see where you're coming from, but Wikipedia:Copyrights#Linking to copyrighted works specifically says that if a webpage is "carrying a work in violation of the creator's copyright", it should not be linked to, as it's a form of contributory infringement. Linking to something endorses the page and its activities, and in the case of copyright violation, zero-tolerance is key, because it's not something Wikipedia should back up. Thanks for reading!

Sorry for reverting your edit to Tim's bio... I really want a better pic there; the one I posted I consider provisional until a better one replaces it...maybe a formal request template could lure somebody into providing a pic...I placed it on the talk page this time so it won't be so bothersome.

Re: Categories and stuff[edit]

Hello again! Don't worry about all the messages at my talk page, I don't mind! :P
As for how to make a category, it should work the same as a normal article. I.e. Category:Tom Cruise as a villain.
As for whether I know if Tom Cruise has played a villain, no. I did enjoy Collateral, however. :P
Anyway, I'm not sure if a category such as this would be appropriate on Wikipedia. You might want to consider reading up on WP:CAT for more information as to what kinds of categories are allowed, and how to create them, etc.
Hope this helps! :D --RazorICE 13:04, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Why would you say that category would be inappropriate? It seems as though it fits the first guideline perfectly, since I was looking for other similar films in which he has played a villain, wouldn't it? -Mike Payne (T • C) 15:29, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Well, I'm not sure if it is or isn't appropriate. I would say it isn't, only because it's very specific (and at the moment you only found one article suitable for it). But yeah, I really don't know. Sorry. :P --RazorICE 12:23, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Dreams (disambiguation)[edit]

As for your edit: Per MOS:DAB#Individual entries: Each bulleted entry should, in almost every case, have exactly one navigable (blue) link. Including more than one link can confuse the reader; including no links at all makes the entry useless for further navigation. The linked album article already has all other relevant info links, so no need to overlink disambiguation pages. But since this is nothing to get in an edit war about, I'll leave it in for now. The next vandal or test editor will come along and add less appropriate stuff to this dab page soon anyway, so it can be fixed again then. :-) – sgeureka t•c 14:12, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Good call, I hadn't seen that, although I think I've heard that disambiguation pages should only have one link per line somewhere before, so yeah, I guess that's right... I reverted it. :) -Mike Payne (T • C) 14:37, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: Technologic[edit]

It does squeeze the text rather badly on the browser I'm using. The "rather short" section of obscured text happens to include the WP:LEAD sentence, which is the one place that should never be mangled or otherwise difficult to read. The article is primarily about the song, so replacing the single cover with the music video pic would be rather awkward. I also noticed that the article contains no detailed information on the music video. I would suggest that it be expanded with a new section relating to the video that could include a description of the character in the photo. Just64helpin 21:13, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Actually, that compressed the entire section into a thin column for me. Rather than fuss about its position, I intend to expand the article per my suggestion. I've removed the photo until then. Hopefully, I'll be able to do some source-based research later today. Just64helpin 09:40, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Daftpunk title.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Daftpunk title.jpg. 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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 00:09, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Conniesmall.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Conniesmall.jpg. 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. BetacommandBot 08:22, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: Daft Punk[edit]

The names are there to clarify which person is in each helmet. This is also the standard for captions of photos featuring a band. Just64helpin 23:39, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

In the future, please discuss changes in the appropriate talk page instead of reverting. Just64helpin 23:44, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps you missed this reply, so I'll point it out again. An infobox photo exists purely for identification purposes. Photos containing more than one person need the individual names to specify which person is which. Otherwise, the reader will not know who is who. As established by the the article name, opening sentence, and the top of the infobox, the article is about Daft Punk. Daft Punk happens to be two people. The individual members don't go around saying "hey, I'm Daft Punk". They do not disregard their individual names when they appear as a duo. Their physical appearances in the suits are also quite distinct. Further reverts will be considered disruptive (see WP:3RR). The edit description is not a chat box. please visit Talk:Daft Punk to discuss the matter properly. Just64helpin 10:38, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Apparently you did notice this topic, as evident in this diff. Would you please explain why made the change to the Daft Punk article after such a long period? Just64helpin 11:53, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:50cent.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:50cent.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 19:45, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

RefImprove for Get Rich or Die Tryin' (album)[edit]

Hi, With the refimprove tag added under "Information" it moves the whole section below the infobox. Maybe your zoom is less than 100%? --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 19:49, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes I did. It moves it on my browser so it is sure to on many others (I use IE 7). Also please check edits before you label them vandalism. I am going to remove it again because it is fine at the top and is sure to affect other people's browsing. --¤ The-G-Unit-฿oss ¤ 19:55, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

References[edit]

I understand your point completely but allows greater visibility and seems more appropriate when the list isn't even over 25 refs. It is really preference but either way is suitable. --Ayoleftyz 00:53, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
