File source problem with File:Jan Matulka - Hopi Snake Dance 2.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Jan Matulka - Hopi Snake Dance 2.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:43, 25 March 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — neuro(talk)(review) 22:43, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

RE: Cinnamomum parthenoxylon[edit]

Hi Nessie. There's no problem. In the spanish wiki, the biological articles are named with the scientific denomination, never the common one. In this case, es:Cinnamomum parthenoxylon. So the bot did its work well ;). The convetion about names changes in other Wikipedias. Best regards, --Lucien leGrey (menes) 19:09, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

That's the spanish Wikipedia's policy for biological names, which is very useful. I don´t see the problem. Please do not write in my bot's talk, for I will see it. Regards, --Lucien leGrey (menes) 21:52, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Re: JSTOR access?[edit]

That's a link to PubMed, not JSTOR. I'm only able to see the abstract. I would have to do an interlibrary loan to see the full text. — ℜob C. alias ᴀʟᴀʀoʙ 01:55, 22 December 2009 (UTC)


The See also section is about related links, there may be n number of goddesses related to health and <<n related to smallpox in Africa, China and India[1][2]. All need not be linked. I am creating a category Smallpox deities to unify them. --Redtigerxyz Talk 03:40, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Jan Matulka[edit]

You are most welcome! Are you related to Matulka, or an admirer? And a Van Loon descendant? Last question: do you review cookbooks (especially vegetarian and vegan)? --Aboudaqn (talk) 20:09, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Matulka/New Masses: Related to both? An enviable heritage. FYI, I just obtained an index of the New Masses (and Liberator and Masses). Jan Matulka has many images listed in the New Masses index (both my own grandfather and grandmother are in there, too). I am planning to get copies of the New Masses (looking for digital, expecting only photocopies from microfilm), so keep in touch. --Aboudaqn (talk) 23:18, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Veggie cookbooks: My wife is edits and publishes an online magazine and is always looking for cookbook reviewers: I thought you might like to review vegetarian, vegan, and other such cookbooks... --Aboudaqn (talk) 23:18, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Edible carnivorous organism categories listed for deletion discussion[edit]

Hello! Thanks for your enthusiasm, but I'm of the opinion that the two categories (Category:Edible carnivorous fungi and Category:Edible carnivorous plants) that you just created are not good categories (WP:CATEGORY) because of the "edibility" criteria. I have laid out my comments and reasons why I think the categories should be deleted at the following discussion: Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2011 September 24#Category:Edible carnivorous fungi. Please leave your comments there. Thanks! Rkitko (talk) 01:24, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 9[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Chaetothyriomycetidae, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dowell (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar!

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Stromatolite, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rio Hondo (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Speedy deletion nomination of Matali[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Matali requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about something invented/coined/discovered by the article's creator or someone they know personally, and it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Danger^Mouse (talk) 16:24, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
