IG Farben Building[edit]

Hi, Thanks for your comments at peer review. I was wondering if you'd like to comment on the IG Farben Building FAC here?--Mcginnly 12:03, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your support at the FAC, I've amended the completion dates. The sources disagree as to the final completion dates for the probable reasons I've outlined in the FAC here. I've whitled the citations down to the two most credible for each date and left it like that. What do you think?--Mcginnly 16:28, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Paul McCartney[edit]

Hi there, as regards to spelling as far as I understand it, it's usually wikipedia policy to use UK English for articles about a UK person or thing and US for an American person or thing. Anything that is "neutral", then either can be used, as long as it is consistant. I think the Manual of Style says something along the lines of, "if an article's subjectt has an assocation to a specific country, the the dialect of that country should be used." This should really be the case in the Paul McCartney article, as he's British. I didn't mean to make a big deal about it, it was just a minor point. I hope that helps.

If you're certain that File:Mushroom that may be a Death Cap.jpg is a death cap, yo might place it in the article because it's one without a gree tinge and being able to identify varieties of this mushroom might be important. You could ask at the page's talk page to make sure. DirkvdM 18:53, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: "Decision"[edit]

Good day. I believe that if the word "Desicion" is used, it is much more likely that the editor intended to use "Decision" rather than "Desition". I am referring to this edit. Just thought I'd let you know. Later, Newnam(talk) 06:13, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

I can't help but roll my eyes (at myself) over my edit. Yes, of course decision is the more likely word, and I should have caught that when proof reading the changes! I've updated my spell list now, thanks for spotting it. Cheers, CmdrObot 14:30, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

My userspace[edit]

It is copyright infringement and a violation of Wikipedia policy to have copyrighted images in the User space. See WP:FUC #9.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:The One Percent Doctrine.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:The One Percent Doctrine.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia 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. Gay Cdn (talk) (Contr.) 02:41, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
