Indefinite block[edit]

I was going to block you for meatpuppeting the 3RR violation on the Joseph Stalin page, but having seen your block log, it looks like indefinite is probably appropriate. User:Zoe|(talk) 07:12, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Yes check.svg

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Blocking admin was involved in editing dispute with user; POV content disputes are not vandalism. Sending to ANI

Request handled by:Nearly Headless Nick {L} 12:11, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

You reverted to a version placed by a vandal who is adding excessively POV edits to the very few articles he/she has edited. You reverted without an explanation as to why you feel the POV should be in the article. A 3RR violation applies to every person who reverts the article, not just to the one account that does so. User:Zoe|(talk) 07:18, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

This is your POV that he is a vandal. There are many users who reverted to that version, not only me. I reverted the mass deletion of sourced material. Please stop blocking your opponents.--Nixer 07:19, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I have been a harsh crytic of Nixer and I supported his blocks but indef is simply wrong here. He is not a sterile revert warrior. He contributes sourced content but occasionally does degrade to edit wars. Indef block seems an overkill. --Irpen 07:26, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

To a certain extent through heroic figures like Klaus Fuchs, the brilliant activities of the Soviet intelligence service resulted in the early loss of America's monopoly on the destructive atomic bomb. isn't vandalism? User:Zoe|(talk) 07:31, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Why is this vandalism?--SergeiXXX 06:53, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

This is a wrong accusation in sockpuppetry which I was not engaged in. User:Zoe simply blocked all his opponents (accusing all them to be sockpuppets). I did not broke any rule and made only one edit to revert mass deletion of material, added by various users (including me).--Nixer 07:28, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
I never said you were a sockpuppet, I said you were a meatpuppet. This discussion is over. User:Zoe|(talk) 07:33, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Nixer, better promise not to rv war and prey than present silly excuses. --Irpen 07:34, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Can you say one edit is an edit war? Yes, of course, I do not use socks, break 3RR etc. But I have right to revert to a version I like more (especially if my contribution deleted in the other version), at least once, especially when my edits supported by a majority of other users. And I am not a "meatpuppet" of any other user. Please use checkuser.--Nixer 07:37, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Don't be silly. Think it over. --Irpen 07:40, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I noticed this by chance. Nixer has put made many worthwhile contributions to many articles. While the use of words like "heroic" and "brilliant" is clearly inappropriate (i.e. they are peacock terms, I think an indefinite block is overly harsh. Grant65 | Talk 07:45, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
I did not use these words. I simply restored version with my edits not deleted. I do not say this version is brilliant. I also ask to unblock User:Zvesda who was also blocked by User:Zoe in false accusation of being my "meatpuppet".--Nixer 07:47, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
You have been unblocked. I suggest you stay away from the article for a period of 24 hours. I also urge you to report this on WP:ANI. — Nearly Headless Nick {L} 12:11, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Antarctic Treaty secretariat Emblem.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Antarctic Treaty secretariat Emblem.gif. 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 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.

Fair use rationale for Image:Antarctic_Treaty_secretariat_Emblem.png[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Antarctic_Treaty_secretariat_Emblem.png. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. When you use a generic fair use tag such as {{fair use}} or {{fair use in|article name}}, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image 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 '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 lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 18:21, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

PROD[edit]

Probability control[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Probability control, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

Image:Loc1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Loc1.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{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 the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShadowHalo 20:42, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

You uploaded this image and tagged it with {{PD-release}} - which indicates you have the copyright holder's permission to release it. If this is the case you need to provide supporting evidence for this. If you took the photo you can change the license to {{PD-self}} and state that it is your own work in the image summary.

Unspecified source for Image:6449.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:6449.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, then 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, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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:Fair use, 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 uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 00:24, 30 June 2007 (UTC).

Fair use rationale for Image:Aeroport_01.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Aeroport_01.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 '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.

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Mian1.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information.

  1. Go to the image 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 the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

Speedy deletion of Image:Venus-real color.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Venus-real color.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[Talk:Image:Venus-real color.jpg|the article's talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 21:58, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Comparative military ranks of World War II/temp1[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Comparative military ranks of World War II/temp1 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

It has been fully superseded by Comparative officer ranks of World War II. Annoyingly, when searching Wikipedia, I found this /temp1 page came up in priority to "Comparative officer ranks of World War II" - and discovered it had errors in it which do not appear in the master page.

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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

File permission problem with File:Sk280.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Sk280.jpg. 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 in|article name}} 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.
