Is everything okay?[edit]

I see that you erased your comments from the Talk:Dalmatian page. I suppose it's in reaction to VanTucky's erasing of the images you posted to the article. Personally I think s/he went a little to far by deleting your images without discussion on the article's talk page. I'm going to address that.

Also, to answer your question in the comment you erased from the talk page, what happened to the old discussions was that they got left behind when another editor moved the article back from "Dalmatian (dog)" to "Dalmatian" by using cut & paste rather than using the move function. Then another editor set up an archive page with part of the old talk page contents but didn't provide a link to it from the current talk page. When I set up the request for the cut & paste move to be repaired, I moved the rest of the old talk page to the archive and created an archive link... otherwise information might have gotten lost.

Lastly, would you mind restoring your comments to the Dalmatian talk page? Traditionally, when one wants to take back one's comments, one strikes them out, like so, by surrounding the relevant text with <s></s>. There's also a button on the tool bar above the edit window to allow you to apply that to highlighted text.

Hope everything is well with you, and you don't let this get to you too much. Remember, it's all just a bunch of bits on an ugly rack of computer servers down in Florida. —Elipongo (Talk|contribs) 03:15, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for answering my question about the old talk page; I wasn't sure where it went and it was quite detailed! I didn't realize there was a "wiki etiquette" regarding removing comments. I would be happpy to repost--I am not a big Wiki editor, so I am not sure how to do it though. Is there a help page for re-posting?
And finally, thanks very much for your friendly post. I was infact mildly offended by Tucky's comments and the fact that he erased my pictures. Mostly because I am quite invovled in the purebred dog world, particularily Dalmatians and I was quite disapointed to find that most of the pictures of the dog breed pages are of very poor quality dogs that don't measure up to the breed standard. I figure that since it is an encyclopedia, it is important to have good quality pictures that best represent the breed in question. It just annoyed me that someone would just take them right off without discussing it. Thanks again for the note!Mllefantine 19:23, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
You're quite welcome. The project is much better when we all remain civil and keep our cool. When I find myself getting frustrated, I remind myself that this is all Wikipedia is in the real world.
It's easy enough to restore your comments to the talk page.
  • go to the talk page
  • click on the "history" tab at the top of the page
    • this opens up a page listing all the edits made to the page in chronological order
  • find your edit
  • click the link labeled "last" to the left side of the line listing your edit
    • this will open up a page showing the difference between your edit and what was there before
  • in this case, you should be able to restore your post simply by clicking the "undo" link at the upper right side of your edit
    • this will open an edit window with your edit restored to the article
      • (if undo decides it won't work for that edit, there'll be a short message to that effect at the top of the edit window)
  • save the page, and you're done!
If you have any more question, feel free to ask! —Elipongo (Talk|contribs) 20:26, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

NowCommons: Image:Black spotted female dalmatian.jpg[edit]

Image:Black spotted female dalmatian.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:Image:Dalmatian black front.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[Image:Dalmatian black front.jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 19:50, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

P.S. This is just because the cropped version is preferable. – Quadell (talk) 23:50, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
