Edit summaries[edit]

Hello. Thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia. Can I recommend using edit summaries to explain the changes that you make. Even if changes are pretty uncontroversial (such as reverting vandalism, or correcting spelling errors), edit summaries are useful for users with the article on their watchlist. Otherwise they have to click 'diff' to see what has been done, which can be time-consuming. Minor corrections can be marked as 'minor', with the summary 'copyedit' or 'spelling'. You should explain why you have made any removals. There is help at Help:Edit summary. Good luck. The JPStalk to me 09:32, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Will do. Thanks for the tip!--Northerlywind (talk) 23:08, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Non-free files in your user space[edit]

Hey there Northerlywind, thank you for your contributions! I am a bot, alerting you that non-free files are not allowed in user or talk space. I removed some files I found on User:Northerlywind/State of Wonder.

  • See a log of files removed today here.
  • Shut off the bot here.
  • Report errors here.
  • If you have any questions, place a {{helpme}} template, along with your question, beneath this message.

Thank you, -- DASHBot (talk) 05:01, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:State_of_Wonder_cover.jpeg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:State_of_Wonder_cover.jpeg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 07:48, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
