File permission problem with File:Marisol Deluna at Smithsonian.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Marisol Deluna at Smithsonian.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Racconish Tk 12:33, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Marisol Deluna[edit]

Dear Mr. Brown,

I have been following this page recently and noticed user 208.54.86.207 (talk) and Aa1232011 (talk | contribs) are the same person or are two people working in unison. Upon further inspection, both first began their user editing on Wikipedia with this subject by straight deletion intended. Please read the history of both as one responds to the other's postings and both accounts emerged out of their attempts to discredit Ms. Deluna. This is an example- http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons/Noticeboard&diff=prev&oldid=429957442 and here is another- http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons/Noticeboard&diff=prev&oldid=429975746.

These user addresses removed entire sections of this article and rallied to have this page deleted once it was posted for nomination. Additionally, user 208.54.86.207 edited under the radar after user Aa12332011 was fingered as someone with malice personal intentions during the deletion debate while this user accused others of sock/meat puppetry. This is visible in the edit history and the use of similar language by both.

I am not new to Wikipedia, yet have just begun an account to become official in my edits. San Antonio, (her hometown) is small for a big city. Therefore with internal certainty, I know who began this vendetta as he has gloated about his attempts outwardly. To be clear, I do not know her personally, yet am familiar with her fashion designs and private charitable outreach.

Please follow the noted user(s) edits if possible as I will do the same. This article should never have been considered for "speedy deletion" yet I believe a solid foundation has been laid out for a better, more encyclopedic article to foster growth in time. Thank you for your contributions on Wikipedia. LegalEagleUSA (talk) 05:57, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Warnings[edit]

ANI topic started about you by User:Aa1232011[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is Administrator Help Needed. Thank you. Mtking (talk) 04:09, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Please don't edit war on Marisol Deluna page[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.Tao2911 (talk) 01:03, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:TPiR MDS Title Card Season 36.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:TPiR MDS Title Card Season 36.png. 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 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).

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. --B-bot (talk) 18:59, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
