NFL logos[edit]

The difference between, say, the Dallas Cowboys star and the Green Bay Packers logo, and the Baltimore Ravens/Atlanta Falcons bird logos, is that the Dallas Cowboys star and Packers letter G isn't copyrighted. As a basic geometric shape (a star) and/or letter (letter G), these aren't copyrighted and we can use these images across Wikipedia freely. The Ravens and Falcons bird logo though, is copyrighted and requires a valid fair use rationale on the image page for it to be used elsewhere. If both images were free, I left them as it was. If one was non-free, I removed both since only one team logo wouldn't be sufficient there. Regards, — Moe ε 17:49, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

For the team article (i.e Pittsburgh Steelers is the Steelers team article), the copyrighted logos are for the infoboxes. It has already been decided by other editors that the copyrighted logos do not belong on articles of individual seasons and of rivalries. Since that is the case, the infobox is it's exclusive use on Wikipedia. You can't obtain "rights" to use the image. Regards, — Moe ε 17:59, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

RE: I am not a sock puppet[edit]

There was an SPI in which user Bt8257 was confirmed to be using multiple accounts, which is a violation of policy for which he received a block. You were suspected of being one of those accounts because you were editing several the same articles at the same time. That's generally enough to generate sufficient concern that you may be one of those sock accounts. I don't believe your account was ever confirmed or cleared, but that's why you were suspected of being involved. ChakaKongtalk 19:37, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Userbox categories[edit]

When categorizing userboxes themselves please put <noinclude></noinclude> around the category, like so, otherwise the pages transcluding them will also be categorized. -- Mentifisto 03:38, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Carrie (2013 film)[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and a belated Welcome to Wikipedia, and thanks for working to improve the site with your edit to Carrie (2013 film), as we really appreciate your participation. However, the details you added regarding Alex Russell's character had to be reverted, because Wikipedia cannot accept unsourced material or original research. This includes material lacking cited sources, material obtained through personal knowledge, or which constitutes the an analysis or interpretation by the editor that is not found in cited sources. Wikipedia requires that the material in its articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable (usually secondary) sources explicitly cited in the article text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here. Although there is a citation for Alex Russell's place in the cast, it makes no mention of his character.

Also, two other points:

  • Spaces do not go in front of citations, as indicated by WP:PAIC.
  • Outside of the Lead section, captions and tables, terms should not be wikilinked in the article body more than once, per WP:OVERLINK.

If you ever have any other questions about editing, or need help regarding the site's policies, just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 15:05, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Seven Years War flags[edit]

Nicholas, I just wanted to let you know I recently reverted your addition of several flags to the infobox over at Seven Years War. The reason I did that is because the flags that you added back (which had previously been in the infobox, and taken down) were explicitly taken down because they were not in use during that conflict, and are thus anachronistic. WP:MOSFLAG expresses that we should use caution with flags in infoboxes anyways, but goes on to make it clear that flags should only be used when they are accurate. If you have a reliable source that supports any of those flags being used in this conflict, I will admit that there's an argument it should be in there. Thanks for your attention.

Thank you for the copy edit by the way. Typing from my ipad is the worst. Cdtew (talk) 04:17, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Doniago. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Animal Farm, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. -- DonIago (talk) 13:38, 30 September 2013 (UTC)


The contents were:

"Monet Lerner (born Monet Tatianna Monico on May 2, 1990) is an American actress–songwriter–singer who has appeared on shows such as The Suite Life of Zack & Cody as Matisse, The Bernie Mac Show, and Lincoln Heights as Tracy." "She also was a contestant on MTV's "P.Diddy's Starmaker", but was eliminated on week 8 along with Omotayo Riley."

It doesn't appear to have been referenced, and there was a filmography table of the three films mentioned. As it stands, it's not worth restoring as it would be tagged again straight away. You're welcome to dig out anything that might show notability and do a relaunch. If you do want the whole thing, I can userfy it for you. Peridon (talk) 19:28, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

BTW it was deleted by prod in both 2007 and 2011. That's the 2011 text. The earlier version was just the same, but with an IMDb link. Peridon (talk) 19:32, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
I would like to view the whole thing if it's possible. You don't have to if you don't want to, but I would appreciate it. Nicholasemjohnson (talk) 04:28, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Repost of Zack Martin (Suite Life)[edit]

Information icon A tag has been placed on Zack Martin (Suite Life) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you. - Purplewowies (talk) 23:05, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

By, the way, in response to your comment on the Cody Martin talk page, the image at the old Zack Martin article was deleted because it was a fair use image that hadn't been used in any articles in over a week. The image at Cody Martin is not currently subject to deletion. - Purplewowies (talk) 23:09, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

World War 6 listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect World War 6. Since you had some involvement with the World War 6 redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. -- Tavix (talk) 21:21, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
