This is my talk page :) please pot new post at the top, thanks

It seems to me[edit]

"It seems to me..." [1] Could you just remove this speculation on your part? It ruins your entire comment when you end it so. --Ronz (talk) 23:49, 13 August 2010 (UTC) <--( moved to top by me per request that new massages subjects are located at the top thanks) --Nightseeder (talk) 16:20, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Moved here per request by you (It seems to me (forgive the assumption) that you might have become so locked down against editing this page (with good reasons because there was a lot of COI here), that it has become a reflex reaction for you to object to any edit of this page (see earlier attempts by me to add the info about the patents above), maybe you should take a minute and ask yourself, would this person be of notability if the InfoSpace law suit would have not happened, if the answer is no, then he is clearly notable for one event, per WP:BIO1E, if the answer is (in all honesty) yes, then please elaborate as to why. --Nightseeder (talk) 16:36, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! If you'd like explanations rather than just making assumptions, let me know.
Basically, I want contributing editors to get away from just repeating the inappropriate behavior and pov of the ones we've blocked. Naveen Jain is not a good article to inexperienced editors because of the past and current problems. Eventually, someone is going to get tired of the sockpuppetry and take stronger action. Myself, I'd rather get some good discussion on the talk page that can be used for reference. Since the good discussions are so rare, maybe I should lecture more? Probably a good idea. I'll try it.
I believe I've answered your WP:BIO1E and WP:BLP1E concerns multiple times now on the article talk page. I can add more details if needed. --Ronz (talk) 18:13, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Please don't make nonsensical claims such as, "which you keep ignoring" [2]. Such statement appear inappropriate, especially in light of comments like my one just above this. --Ronz (talk) 19:52, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
This is not a "nonsensical claims" as you call it, it is a valid point since in spite of you repeatedly claiming to address subjects you do not (unless I'm missing something). --Nightseeder (talk) 23:49, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it appears you are indeed missing something, as you offer. Specifically, you miss my comments on the very subject that you appear to want me to address. --Ronz (talk) 00:02, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

In the future, note the edit summary [3] and ask for an explanation if you don't understand. I referred to WP:TALK, referring to Wikipedia:Talk#New_topics_and_headings_on_talk_pages and WP:TPO. --Ronz (talk) 23:49, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! [4] At least we have that behind us. --Ronz (talk) 23:57, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Clement Finch[edit]

Your version of the Finch article is far more comprehensive than what I worked on, and I would have no objection of laying it over the present version. There are a couple of typos and it's more encyclopedic to refer to hims as "Finch", rather than "Clement", but that's just nitpicking. I would also suggest looking over the present article and seeing how references are used (and reused), as your version uses bare links and references the same sources multiple times. My search through the Hematology archives showed dozens of individuals who could benefit from the same treatment that you have given Finch, and there are plenty of holes hear to be filled. Welcome to Wikipedia and thanks for all your efforts. Please let me know (on my talk page) if I can help you with anything. Alansohn (talk) 21:53, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:HeroIcon.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:HeroIcon.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.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

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 created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 21:04, 15 July 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 21:04, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi and thanks for the taking notice, in fact it was a mistake and I want to delete said file but don't know how (I have edited the description to show my intentions), again thanks --Nightseeder (talk) 21:10, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of InfoSpace (Dot Com crash)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Please do not make statements attacking people or groups of people. Wikipedia has a strict policy against personal attacks. Attack pages and images are not tolerated by Wikipedia and are speedily deleted. Users who continue to create or repost such pages and images in violation of our biographies of living persons policy will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. ukexpat (talk) 14:11, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. In fact I didn't delete the article, I tagged it for deletion. If you click on InfoSpace (Dot Com crash) you will see that it was actually deleted by User:JamesBWatson on the basis that it was an Unnecessary fork of InfoSpace and G10: Attack page.... If you wish, you can ask at WP:DRV for the deletion to be reviewed. – ukexpat (talk) 18:49, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi, is there a way for me to read your article? Maybe you can put some of that content into the Naveen Jain bio page to make it a real bio? ValkyrieOfOdin (talk) 01:31, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
The article I made was more about the event surounding the InfoSpace "crash" and not specifically about Naveen (though he was mention extensivly, but only in his relation to the event in question). As far as showing you the article I made, I'm not sure if it is possible (as far as Wiki Rules are concerned), but if I get an second opinion from someone (see my answer to JamesBWatson below) I will post it as a draft page on my userpage and inform you about it. --Nightseeder(Chat). 23:09, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
I was going to place a "talkback" tag here to direct you to a comment on my talk page. However, in view of the above discussion I have decided again to copy my comment here.
There is room for debate on when it is justified to create a new article which covers a particular aspect of a topic already covered in an existing article. If that were the only issue I would be perfectly willing to undelete the article so that it could be discussed before it is finally decided whether it should be allowed to stay. However, that is not the only issue, as the article was tagged by Ukexpat for deletion as an attack page. Having looked at the content of the article I had to agree with Ukexpat. The article was written entirely to express a negative point of view about a company, and did not give a balanced, objective account. That was in itself sufficient reason for deletion, and it would not be acceptable to restore such an article, even for discussion. The speedy deletion policy explicitly states that an attack on a living person should not be restored, and although this was about a company rather than a person, it could be taken as an attack on the people responsible for the actions referred to, so I think I have to take the same line in this case. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:51, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Though I was trying to describe the even in a neutral matter, I can understand where you come from. though the article was about a negative event so there is boned to be some negativity to it. The reason I made the article in the first place was to navigate the discussion about Naveen Jain and his relation to the InfoSpace event to one place (per the suggestion in WP:BIO1E and WP:BLP1E) and I still believe that an article about the even will beater serve Wiki rather then a little bit about the event here and there.--Nightseeder(Chat). 23:09, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
In regard to ValkyrieOfOdin, request above to see the article. Would it be OK to post the draft of it on my userpage (somewere like User:Nightseeder/draft/InfoSpace_DCC_Draft) and maybe get a chance to rework on it and bring it to a more acceptable form? --Nightseeder(Chat). 23:09, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Clement Finch.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Clement Finch.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:30, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Yitzhak_rabin.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Yitzhak_rabin.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 or which could be adequately covered with text alone. 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. Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:56, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Yitzhak rabin.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Yitzhak rabin.jpg. 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 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.


Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 05:31, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 11:24, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
