If you are here with questions about an article I have deleted or a copyright concern, please consider first reading my personal policies with regards to deletion and copyright, as these may provide your answer.

While you can email me to reach me in my volunteer capacity, I don't recommend it. I very seldom check that email account. If you do email me, please leave a note here telling me so or I may never see it. I hardly ever check that account.

To leave a message for me, press the "new section" or "+" tab at the top of the page, or simply click here. Remember to sign your message with ~~~~. I will respond to all civil messages.

I attempt to keep conversations in one location, as I find it easier to follow them that way when they are archived. If you open a new conversation here, I will respond to you here. Please watchlist this page or check back for my reply; I will leave you a "talkback" notice if you request one and will generally try to trigger your automatic notification even if you don't. (I sometimes fail to be consistent there; please excuse me if I overlook it.) If I have already left a message at your talk page, unless I've requested follow-up here or it is a standard template message, I am watching it, but I would nevertheless appreciate it you could trigger my automatic notification. {{Ping}} works well for that. If you leave your reply here, I may respond at your talk page if it seems better for context. If you aren't sure if I'm watching your page, feel free to approach me here.

Admins, if you see that I've made a mistake, please fix it.
Reaching me

I am not on Wikipedia as often as I'd like to be. My goal is to check my page, at least, daily, but I often fall short of that goal. If you have an urgent note for me here, please consider alerting me via email at (This is my work email address, and I do not mix work and volunteering, but mailing that address makes sure I will see it promptly, usually within a day.) If not urgent, I'll come by as soon as I can, and I heartily welcome talk page stalkers. :)

Regarding copyvio issue on Walter Hoving[edit]

Hello Moonriddengirl,

I just noticed an user has raised a copyvio concern on Walter Hoving article. I plan to rewrite it. I have removed all the copyvio infringement from the article. Please check my revision here. Once the tag is removed I can work on it comfortably. Please review it, I hope to hear from you soon. Regards. Hitro talk 10:02, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

I have reviewed this rewrite. MER-C 08:33, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Copyright second opinion[edit]

Maggie, I'd appreciate it if you'd give a second opinion on Benjamin Murmelstein at Wikipedia:Copyright problems/2016 July 12. Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 21:46, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Woah! Long thread. Okay! Looking. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:51, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Wow. That took me three hours. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 02:03, 17 July 2016 (UTC)


Hey MRG, do you consider linking to this, a translation, a link to a copyvio? Does copyright disappear after translation? Tarkan (singer) abounds with links to that site. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 21:35, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Alas, Drmies, it is. The copyright owner alone owns the right to license translations. Translations are derivative works and must be authorized to avoid WP:LINKVIO.:/ --Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:17, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Aiaiai. I better get to work then. Thanks Moonriddengirl, Drmies (talk) 23:21, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Eh...should I revdel the edits in which those links were made? There may be a lot of edits. Drmies (talk) 23:22, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Deltoid muscle[edit]

Hello, Moonriddengirl. I happened to notice that Deltoid muscle contains some of the same text that is here and here, but I'm not sure who copied whom. The Wikipedia text was added with this edit in 2005. User:Des Esseintes hasn't edited since 2007, and doesn't have a talk page.

The pages say (C) 1999, but the date might refer to the images, not the text. I saw some mentions of as possible spam (e.g. here), but nothing about being a mirror, or possible copyright involvement. I'm not sure if I should place copyvio on the page, or if I'm being overly sensitive. Thoughts? Cnilep (talk) 09:11, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) The 1999 copyright must refer to their site, since the WP content it mirrors is from 2005, as you noted. They copied WP. Doc talk 09:29, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Talking of dates prompted me to check the Internet Archive. The text is there in 2004, so the Wikipedia edits seem to be taken from that site. I'm adding copyvio to a small section. Cnilep (talk) 03:59, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

The Signpost: 21 July 2016[edit]


Howdy, Moonriddengirl, hope all is well. I have a favor to ask of you: I got bored and decided to go through my old deleted/logged action pages here and at Marina Tchebourkina it appears that MFJE, an account which had a copyright concept problem, apparently made major edits to the article beginning November 2015 ([1]). I have no proof that this has occurred, but given that the article's size is now closer to the 12,000 it had been before you rewrote it and trimmed it down to about 7,000 I am worried that this may once more been in copyvio trouble. When you get a moment can you eyeball it and make sure its still ok? TomStar81 (Talk) 08:49, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
