Welcome!

Hello, Ninja of Tao, and welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as Alexshinia, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:10, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alexshinia[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Alexshinia, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:10, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alexshin Order[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Alexshin Order, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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.

Alexshin order[edit]

Hi. I think you need to at least state the name and author of the book in the lead section of the article, to place the article in its proper context, and you need to provide a reliable source that people can check. If you don't do that, it's likely to be nominated for deletion again - at least as being unsourced/non-notable -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:36, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

For example, add an opening sentence that says "The Alexshin order is a fictional organization featuring in the novel XXX by YYY", or something like that. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:39, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alexshin order[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 Alexshin order requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but 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. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Zanoni (talk) 12:37, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Alexshin order[edit]

I've done a Google search, and there are no hits supporting your claim of its being an organization featured in a book. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:43, 6 February 2011 (UTC)


________________________________________________ I have never used the talk page system before, so I don't know if this is the right way to reply. The reason why your google search did not find matches are that the Alexshin order is 1) a fictional organization in a book series 2)that the books have not been sold or published at all, but are so far for private use only 3) all members are anonymous. - Ninja of Tao, anonymous author of the "Alexshinia" book series.

You've just demolished your own case, I'm afraid. A fictional organisation whose members are anonymous in an unpublished book (or books) doesn't stand a chance of having an article. Please look at WP:GNG for general notability guidelines, and WP:RS for how to give the required sources. And WP:NOTWEBSPACE or WP:SPAM whichever is appropriate, too. Peridon (talk) 13:11, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

_____________________________________________________

I wrote the books myself, and I recently decided putting up some information about it online. I figured Wikipedia would be the best. The books will be published in 2012, though they only exist in Swedish. I - the author - will though remain anonymous online until the books are complete.

I'm afraid another bit of policy comes in here - WP:CRYSTAL. Wikipedia is not for things in the future. It is an encyclopaedia, and for things that can (and MUST be) referenced to reliable sources. Independent sources. I must admit as a writer myself that it is sometimes tempting to put something up on an unpublished project, but I know the rules too well to give in. When your books are published, AND achieve coverage in independent sources (and are not self-published through lulu or PublishAmerica or similar), then an article will probably be OK. (Self-published only get articles when very good coverage in independent sources is seen. Possibly unfair, but some utter rubbish gets published through those places.) By that time, a fan will probably have created an article anyway. Good luck, anyway. Peridon (talk) 13:25, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

_____________________________________________________ Thank you for your help. Though I guess there are other ways of publishing my story online. I made my own wiki about it, but I won't give away the link until I've wrote more.

Just thought I'd add a bit of moral support here. I'm a writer by profession (in a non-fiction field), but nothing I've written satisfies the Wikipedia notability guidelines and so doesn't get Wikipedia articles - but that's quite correct, and I have no complaints. I wish you success with your books, and should they be published and attract the attention of multiple reliable sources, I look forward to reading about them in a future Wikipedia article. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:31, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

________________________________________________________ I appreciate your kind words, and I am glad to be able to talk to a fellow writer. I'm writing some series of books in different categories: 1 series of fiction/fantasy, 2 series of historical adventures (in Japan and Sweden), and of course the action/adventure filled Alexshinia series. I'd appreciate if you could give me some tips.

Very basic tips: Speak your dialogue; don't use 'said' for every line of dialogue, but if running on from speaker to speaker without a form of 'said Bill' 'said Joe', make sure it's clear who said what; if being historical, do research thoroughly and then check again; if doing fantasy, you can make your own rules, but do make them and be consistent; if in real world, get the geography right (not like the da Vince Code, apparently); remember who is who and where they were (the great Edgar Wallace wrote so fast that characters sometimes changed name halfway through a book...); and above all, re-read after an interval from working on it - you may find mistakes, and also you may need to alter things to fit something written later. Apart from that, if you don't enjoy writing it and re-reading it, nobody else is going to enjoy reading it. (This doesn't apply to 'A Synopsis of Police Procedures in the Commonwealth of Australia, 1920-1940' and suchlike non-fiction...) Peridon (talk) 19:47, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Swedish domination[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.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Swedish domination. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Sweden. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Sweden - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," 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 the page's talk page 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. 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Kevin (talk) 17:43, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of military equipment of Sweden[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of military equipment of Sweden has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No references at all that support this information

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Proposed deletion of Military equipment of Sweden during WWII[edit]

Greenmaven (talk) 04:10, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

I am responding here, as well as on my talk page, to your question about the deletion of Military equipment of Sweden during WWII. It is clear from your talk page that you are attempting to add a lot of material to WP, without learning some basic things about the 'culture' and expected behaviour of editors. I appreciate that you have put a lot of work into your articles, but WP is an encyclopedia in which all statements have to be supported by evidence. If these rules are not followed WP would fill up with all sorts of inaccuracies, and therefore lose its value to those who use it.
So - you must have found the information about Sweden from somewhere. You are expected to state that source as a reference, so that others can feel confident about believing the article. The only reason that your article was deleted is that you have not provided references to support what you have written.
At the top of this page someone put a welcome message with links to the documentation of all the basic information you need to successfully write articles, without getting them deleted. I urge you to read this material and follow the guidelines. Otherwise you will continue to have your work deleted because there is a whole community of editors, who police the adding of new articles, so that quality is maintained. This is not a personal attack on your work. I notice you have other articles related to Sweden and I suggest you begin by adding references to them to protect them from deletion.
I have never had to recover an article after it has been deleted, so I cannot help you at this moment, but I believe it can be requested. I will look into it and contact you again. Greenmaven (talk) 21:42, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Back again. With reference to your recently deleted article, try reading Wikipedia:Deletion policy especially Wikipedia:Deletion policy#Deletion review and Wikipedia:Deletion policy#undeletion. I hope you will focus on understanding WP ways of doing things, rather than trying to add more articles, until you have understood why you have been having difficulties. Best wishes. I hope you find a way to contribute to this great project. --Greenmaven (talk) 22:12, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

This may help[edit]

If you plan to become a regular editor, can I also make a friendly suggestion that putting some information about yourself on your User page will help create good relationships with other editors? Most regular editors do that, but they vary a great deal in what and how much they say about themselves. Looking at their User pages will give you some ideas on how others are doing this. Regards --Greenmaven (talk) 00:12, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of FS 2020 for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article FS 2020 is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/FS 2020 until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Zujua (talk) 07:20, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Swedish Musket model 1701.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Swedish Musket model 1701.jpg, which you've sourced to http://www.sfhm.se/templates/pages/ArmeObjectPage____689.aspx?epslanguage=SV. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Images must be in the public domain both in their source country and in the United States to be hosted on this wiki. Thank you. Dianna (talk) 03:02, 14 February 2013 (UTC)


Sorry if I am posting this the wrong way (I am still not experienced with talking to people through a Wikia talk page). Indeed you are correct that the link has no proof that the file creator has licensed it under the given license. But the image is posted in a public domain (the homepage of Swedish Armémuseum), and according to Swedish copyright laws such images can be used for information or educational purposes without requesting permission from the file's owner, as long as the file's owner is clearly stated wherever the file is posted. I need that picture on this site because it's the only picture I could find of the weapon in question, so I would appreciate someone's help in uploading the same file under acceptable license. I cannot find any copyright information on the Armémuseum's homepage, but I hope that someone who is more experienced with such matters can. --> Ninja of Tao (talk) 17:39, 15 February 2013 (UTC +1)

No, the swedish IP-law (what you call "copyright laws") don't have the rules that you say. That a picture, that is "public domain" can be used for information or educational purposes without requesting permission from the file's owner, as long as the file's owner is clearly stated wherever the file is posted. Its not true. You sould read the "Act on Copyright in Literary and Artistic Works" ( Swedish Upphovrättslagen) SFS 1960:729. // Swedish law student, studying for a Master of Laws. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.254.18.197 (talk) 23:01, 22 November 2013 (UTC)


Polish-Swedish war (1701-1706)[edit]

Hey, I liked what you've added to your Sandbox about the Polish invasion of the GNW. Why don't you throw some citations in and make an article of it? It's much needed. Imonoz (talk) 06:38, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Am I posting this reply correctly? Never understood how the talk page worked... anyways, thank you for your comments. I do indeed plan to upload it once I've finished writing the information and found reliable references. The only thing I cannot find references to are the casualties: those were added together by looking at every individual battle, so I don't know if it's reliable evidence. Many more might have died from hunger, disease, famine and so on, but all battle casualties were listed in the article. I hope to be able to finish it in a week or so. Ninja of Tao (talk) 11:18, 7 May 2013 (UTC+1)

Yes, you can either reply here at your talk page, or you could go to mine User talk:Imonoz, make a new content, in this case Polish-Swedish war (1701-1706) and reply there (then I would also get a notification). It could be reliable (with the casualties), provided the battles you're visiting have reliable sources. However, one got to avoid WP:OR. Surely many more died of diseases and so on, not to mention all the 1,000+ skirmishes. However, a good way you could put it is 6,597 and 39,894 casualties in "larger battles". I'll see if I find any references of total casualties, might be hard though. Anyways, keep going with the good job. Imonoz (talk) 13:51, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

That would be great! As far as the Russian campaign goes, there's an article already started on the subject, long from finished though. Tell me if you need help or anything. Imonoz (talk) 14:33, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Here's the Baltic theater and here's the Finnish theater. Instead of making new articles of purely the same theater, it would be ideal to add information on those already existing. Imonoz (talk) 15:42, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Actually I provided you with two articles in my last post, one during the Russian invasion of Finland and the other of the Baltic war. What I am trying to say here is that another Baltic war article is not necessary, as it already exist, for example. Expand on the existing ones instead. Same should go for the Polish-Swedish war (1701-1706) [this name is not completely correct, as the nations were not officially in war until later], instead Charles XII invasion of Poland is more fitting, or Charles XII war on Augustus as the king declared war not on the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth itself but on August personally. Here the invasion of Saxony could be included, as it's purely the same theater only in different nations. There's also need for an article prior to the war with a more advanced look as of why it started, what the allied planned to gain, why they attacked Sweden etc. Imonoz (talk) 18:37, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Karl XII - 282,000 google hits, Charles XII - 796,000 google hits. As seen here, 'Charles XII' is clearly the accepted name in modern English. The Swedes as well used 'Carolus' more often than 'Karl' to express his greatness. This is just something we all have to accept. Imonoz (talk) 07:30, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello again! I have made some work on Caroleans and are about to add some good pictures to the site. What I'm looking for is a picture which describes the uniform. I saw you uploaded a picture of a carolean mannequin on Wikia, which I liked. My question is if this one is free to use? Allowed to upload on Wikipedia? Greetings, Imonoz (talk) 15:28, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Okey, thank you! I will upload the image then and see how it gets received. Do you know where you found the picture? Imonoz (talk) 17:22, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

It's okey, I found an almost identical picture (or the same only resized) here. After the first picture got removed I asked kildenett.no if it was okey for me to use it, I got a go. By the way, how's things going on the Polish-Swedish war article? Imonoz (talk) 10:29, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:I Nationens Intresse DVD cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:I Nationens Intresse DVD cover.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 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).

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Charles XII invasion of Poland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Battle of Grodno (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.

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Odin may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • | caption = ''Odin the Wanderer'' (1896) by [[Georg von Rosen]]]]

Infoboxes[edit]

Please do not add infoboxes to pages on Norse deities. These topics are way too complex to be summed up in an infobox, and the issue has arisen in the past and infobox addition has been rejected. The introductory sections of these articles are long to serve the summarizing function. Yngvadottir (talk) 14:15, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

What's with the vandalism on your user page? Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 09:49, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Because of an incident on a site not related to Wikipedia, including me sharing the account there with a friend, I was accused of rule violations and (by some people) even actual crimes, after being subjected to several years of harassment by other members as well as the forum staff. While I find such behavior unacceptable I also see my mistake in sharing the account as it can easily lead to such misunderstandings, and I will refrain from providing others with my password(s) in the future. I believe that the entire situation awoke from one of three possible sources: 1) my friend committed such acts through our shared account, 2) a third party had used our account for such, or 3) I was accused of violating the forum rules as a way to simply "get rid of me". I was always a strong debater and had some, by their standards, controversial views that came into conflict with members of the forum staff. But unlike my opposition I never resorted to threats or personal insults in these debates, and I believe that my friend did not either. That is all I know regarding the vandalism of my user page, and I apologize if it is not very helpful. I hope for your understanding that I do not wish to think back on all the harassment I suffered during that period. Ninja of Tao (talk) 17:48, 30 December 2013 (UTC+1)

I also received a wp:legal threat on my talk page about it. I posted his/her concerns on BLP (oops, forgot to notify you; sorry!) which resulted in a quick "nope, not a BLP" and User:Catboxx12 being permanently blocked. Though still wants to complain. Sorry about the trouble. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 19:12, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

I am glad that this site doesn't ignore vandalism or harassment, and I appreciate that you took the time to look into this matter. Ninja of Tao (talk) 20:35, 30 December 2013 (UTC+1)

Minor follow up. @Jim1138: the vandalism appears to ongoing. Just reverted a few edits. EvergreenFir (talk) 01:05, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
