Google services and tools - alternative list[edit]

Hi there Martin! I've managed to create an alternative list of google services and tools. I have also written some reasons why I think it should be used. I am not sure how we would "vote", but there's probably some way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joec89 (talkcontribs)


You can find it here: Alternative list

That looks pretty good, i'll set up the vote tonight. Martin Porcheron 05:49, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. And good luck setting up the vote! Cos I have no idea how! --Joe C 12:09, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Martin, I was just wondering whether you have set up the vote yet? I have moved the page to an "article" section (instead of having it on a talk page) so there can be discussions on it. Tell me what you think to the new icons as well. --Joe C 16:01, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
Martin, thanks for putting up the poll. I am quite happy to keep the current format, but if we do, then I think there could be a slight re-arrangement. As I mentioned before, I think smaller logos (if any) should be used, to leave room for perhaps a "status" column (limited test > beta > final). Also, the "summary" really needs to be more concise. We could perhaps include the hierarchy I have made as well. --Mambo Jambo 20:49, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Cut and paste move[edit]

I reverted your cut and paste move of Google Patent Search to Google Patents. Moves should not be performed by cutting and pasting, as that does not preserve the page history, rather they should be performed using the "move" tab. If you still wish to move the page, you will need to delete Google Patents by tagging it for speedy deletion with {{db-move}}, and then using the "move" tab on Google Patent Search. Normally it is easier than this, but as Google Patents has now been created it requires an extra step. Oldelpaso 20:42, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Google alerts.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Google alerts.gif. 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

I am trying to incorporate Google Earth into a article. Is it possible? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Brick.garcia (talkcontribs).

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project. You have been identified as a project member and your input as to this matter would be welcomed at WT:CVU#Inactive.3F and at the deletion debate. Thank you!

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Msn.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Msn.gif. 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.

If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 17:47, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
