This message to Nick from Mujjuman[edit]

Hello. Please let me first apologize if this is the wrong space to say this... I am new at talking to other users on Wikipedia. recently, I added material to the SUNY Albany page, but it was removed by Nick Garvey. I felt it was wrong to remove the material. That page is totally one sided, and people to know the full story. People need to know the good AS WELL AS the bad. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mujjuman (talkcontribs) 12:37, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


I am setting up an info box (US School) in Scotia-Glenville High School, but I don't have information for some of the things it requires, when I try to delete the line for the things I don't know, it stays and has the text {{{Item}}}, how can I avoid this?

Just leave the line in there with out an answer. If it doesn't have an answer the code should ignore the line. Lemme know if it still gives you problems --Malevious Userpage •Talk Page• Contributions 02:03, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
That's really weird. I looked at a few pages that use the infobox and they seem to have the same problems with it. I suggest re adding the helpme template and ask an editor who is more experienced with template codes to look at Template:Infobox US school, I think it has something to do with the way they coded it. --Malevious Userpage •Talk Page• Contributions 02:13, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism warnings[edit]

Please start at level one or level vandalism warnings, particulary with anon or new users. These warnings assume good to no faith and don't usually mention being blocked. They are less likely to scare off a future good editor. Thank you. Umalee 01:44, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Infobox Question[edit]

I am trying to add Template:Infobox US school to Scotia-Glenville High School, but when I leave a field blank it does not simply leave out the field. I don't have all the data it requests, so I was wondering if there was a way I could prevent these fields from showing up. Nick Garvey 02:27, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

The template wasn't coded normally, so all the fields were forced to show. I've fixed it now. -Amarkov moo! 02:52, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the tips. I appreciate it. The changes worked. Vinwe 03:29, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

id you delete Jo Savino's page[edit]

This page has no copyrighted material on it, My daughter worked for 3 weeks to compile the information and check the facts. After she typed the information I had her cut and paste the information onto Wikipedia. Jo Savino Changed dance. He made it possible for people in the twin cities to learn about classical ballet. Please tell us why it was deleted and we will fix it.

Thank you —Preceding unsigned comment added by Odnor19 (talkcontribs) 16:34, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Warning to[edit]

HI. I'm confused by your level 3 warning on 8 March 2008 to regarding Mohonasen High School. I do not see where this IP address has edited that page. Can you check to make sure that you have the correct IP address? Thanks --Igoldste (talk) 03:56, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Picotux.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Picotux.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 15:42, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, Nick![edit]

It's nice to hear I'm doing something right! The state pages are a mess. We created them 2 1/2 years ago to solve another problem, they've taken a life of their own... :-o. Thanks again! Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 00:49, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

File source problem with File:ScotiaGlenville.jpg[edit]


Thank you for uploading File:ScotiaGlenville.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, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:04, 7 September 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:04, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 11[edit]

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