A barnstar for you!

Kindness Barnstar Hires.png The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
Thank you so much for adding categories to my Betsy Plank page! I didn't think of these, and they were great ideas. TiffanyGallicano (talk) 01:17, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for this. Cats like alumni of ... and people from ... are some of the easiest to add as most places and universities have such categories. NtheP (talk) 15:21, 11 March 2013 (UTC)


I can't understand this one, are you asking a question or answering something, lso the other editor's posy! --Tito Dutta (contact) 02:55, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Neither, that's an old answer to a question well down the list. I think what happened is EllenCT's question screwed up the formating i.e. an unclosed <ref> tag and all subsequent text vanished until the next </ref> tag appeared which was mine inside a nowiki'ed section. NtheP (talk) 09:20, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help

I had no idea what I did wrong when I asked that question at the Teahouse, so I quickly deleted it. Thanks for explaining it all on my talk page. I could see that you had tried to answer somehow. Anyway, I've played with refs and cites in my sandbox, and I'm going to start editing! EllenCT (talk) 06:31, 13 March 2013 (UTC)


I have seen your impressive work at the teahouse, and I noticed you already doing adminship related tasks as well. Have you ever considered running for adminship? Thanks Secret account 22:42, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I enjoy what I do which is pretty much what you've seen, helping out at the Teahouse, copyright checking - esp images, some vandalism patrolling - mostly of new users. I do an amount of content work but I'm a confirmed wikignome. Adminship has it's attractions but then I look at RFA and the meat market that it's become and I wonder if I want to go through the process :-) NtheP (talk) 21:27, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I've often thought of asking you the same question. While I respect that if you don't want to run, I think your 4 GAs would satisfy most voters' content building reqs and no one can deny that you have been one of the best Teahouse hosts. I would be willing to co-nom should you ever decide to go for it. Go Phightins! 21:30, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I'll give it some thought. I've got a weeks holiday, so pretty much of a wikibreak to mull things over. NtheP (talk) 22:05, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
That sounds to me like enough affirmation that I'm going to write up a nomination statement. Face-smile.svg Go Phightins! 01:14, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
I don't mean to push you, take your time, but I'm just curious. Have you given it any thought? Go Phightins! 16:44, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Have given it a lot of thought and if you still think I'm a suitable candidate I'd be up for it. After all what's the worst that can happen? NtheP (talk) 16:49, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I'll get the ball rolling on that right now. I think you have a pretty good chance, you have my wholehearted support. Go Phightins! 18:53, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Nthep has been established. I'll ask Secret if he would like to co-nom, but in the mean time you can answer the questions. Go Phightins! 18:57, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I haven't heard from Secret, let me know when you want to transclude. Go Phightins! 20:15, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I'll leave that to you. If you want to wait for Secret I'm fine but if you want to do it sooner, that's ok to. NtheP (talk) 20:22, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Why don't we give Secret until tomorrow, and if he doesn't add a statement by then, we can transclude then? Go Phightins! 20:34, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Ok. NtheP (talk) 20:36, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

I am glad you accepted the RFA and I will offer my full-fledged support of course, but I won't have the time to write a detailed nomination as I need to focus on my senior thesis now I got a new computer. Go ahead with the RFA. I know you will pass. Thanks Secret account 01:45, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
All right, I'm about to transclude. Here we go! Good luck! Go Phightins! 03:24, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

A kitten for you!

Cute grey kitten.jpg

Thanks for your advice earlier on the teahouse. I saw you like cats, so here's a kitten for you.

Penguin2006 (talk) 15:47, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello again. I'd really like to help out at the Teahouse myself in future but I don't think I have enough knowledge yet. In the meantime, I adopted a couple of newbies from Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user. There was nobody to stop me but I'm not sure I've enough experience for that either. I couldn't find any definite guidelines.

I've been using your tips for using HotCat. I had NoScript turned on, blocking it on my browser, so I didn't know it existed until you told me. Now I've enabled that, there's a whole load of other Wikipedia features I can see for the first time as well. Thanks again. Penguin2006 (talk) 14:06, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Penguin, thanks for the kitten. You're welcome to help out at the Teahouse - do what you are confident about and experience will come, there are questions posed there that I won't go near, so it's not a case of you need to know everything or even be confident about everything. Good on you for taking on new users and remember if you or they ever get stuck the Teahouse is there to help. NtheP (talk) 11:17, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I adopted 2 people and left them messages but I'm not sure they'll reply. They've both not been on Wikipedia for over a month. Anyway, they'll feel more welcome if they ever come back and check their user page. I know I did, even from welcome messages years old, at my own user page.
One of my adoptees (User:SailinStuff)has put their email address on their user page. I advised them it's not a great idea to put personal information there. Another editor added that an admin can help them take it off previous versions as well. I'm slightly tempted to just delete their email myself from their userpage - would that be rude and intrusive? I know you're not supposed to tinker with other people's user pages. But they're going to get a lot of junk mail when bots find it and they seem a little new to the internet and well-intentioned.
I read that typing {{admin}} on your talk page requests an admin to come and help. Have you tried it? Does that work? If SailinStuff asks me to find an admin to take off previous versions, what's the best way to find one?
As for the Teahouse, I've been spending a little time there every day reading the questions and how the hosts respond. I think I will join in when I feel a bit more ready. The Teahouse is fantastic for learning. Other people ask the best questions, often questions I've wondered myself for a long time. It really irks me when some hosts just jump in and fix pages for people, though, instead of telling them what's wrong and letting them learn for themselves. I very much appreciated your style.
Cheers. Penguin2006 (talk) 16:05, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
For the reasons you say I'd agree that having their email address on their user page is not the best idea for SailinStuff but it's their choice. It can be removed entirely by use of WP:REVDEL - if SailinStuff wants to go down this route they need to contact one of the admins in Category:Wikipedia administrators willing to handle RevisionDelete requests. The best way to attract an admins attention is to use the template {{Help me}} with the request. If they really want to keep the address on their talk page then {{No spam}} will stop it being read by trawling software etc.
I don't like to fix things for people unless it's really complicated, better I think, to try, to explain and let them put it right themselves. People tend to learn more by doing rather than being told. NtheP (talk) 16:41, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I do agree about not changing someone else's user page. I think I just wanted it confirmed. Even if I get the impression they might prefer to remove their email details if they had more information, it's their choice.
Thanks for the links. Great, just what I wanted, I'll pass them on. {{Help me}}. That was what I meant.
I did learn a lot more when you described what to do and left those links for me than if you'd just fixed my problem. Even though I had to let the information settle for a day, and re-read what you wrote several times. Penguin2006 (talk) 18:21, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Hey, if it doesn't make sense please say, it's one of the feedback routes for hosts that tells us whether we're pitching it right ot not. NtheP (talk) 18:48, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
No, it was very good. You pitched it perfectly to me. It was just a lot of information in a new area.Penguin2006 (talk) 23:50, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

The no win scenario

I remembered seeing this but it took me a while to find it again!

Star Trek Tos OF10 (alt).png The Kobayashi Maru Award
Awarded to Nthep for trying to help, even in the face of issues that can almost never be addressed properly! Sometime, just trying is what counts!--Amadscientist (talk) 00:03, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Hah, thanks. I had to look the meaning up and I appreciate the award. NtheP (talk) 09:16, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Minor change!

I have made minor changes in your post to correct the numbering! --Tito Dutta (contact) 15:43, 27 March 2013 (UTC)


Thank you for your kindness, NtheP! That is great, and I don't think either anybody will oppose to the improvements. --KDesk (talk) 21:35, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't think they will either but we had better wait a few more days then make the change. NtheP (talk) 15:41, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

A jerk

A jerk would say I told you so. I told you so. Congratulations on the support you have been getting from the Wikipedia community. I don't want to jinx anything, but I just wanted to say that I am very happy you accepted the nomination. Happy Easter to you and your family. Go Phightins! 03:36, 29 March 2013 (UTC)


Congratulations!!! --j⚛e deckertalk 03:55, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations, I'm pleased to note that your Request for Adminship was successful. If you're wondering how to use your new tools, the Wikipedia:New admin school may be of help. Unless I messed up on anything (you're my first promotion/use of the bureaucrat tools), you're good to go and use, not abuse, your new tools :). Wizardman 03:42, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Well Nthep, congratulations on being entrusted with the admin tools. I am proud to have been your nominator and know you will do fantastic work. Yours, Go Phightins! 03:35, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Congrats and all the best! TheStrikeΣagle 05:23, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Does User:Nthep/Editcounter have anything to do with the edit counter that has the circles showing stats about your edits with circles by stuff like time and month? Because if so, I've been trying for weeks to find that (I accidentally deleted the link I had to it), and if you happen to know the link, it would make my day! Inks.LWC (talk) 04:16, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Inks, if you go to the bottom of your own contributions page you should find a number of links, one of which is Edit count. This will take you to the tool you want but otherwise the link is and you can enter any user's name to get their count. NtheP (talk) 09:24, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Right - I know about that one. But the one I'm talking about has a lot more statistics on it. And if I'm remembering correctly, all the charts are bubble charts. Inks.LWC (talk) 18:22, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Only when I checked did I realise I'd got two editcounters enabled and as the link above relates to the other one. Which User:Nthep/Editcounter relates to, I can't remember either. NtheP (talk) 18:43, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, if you ever happen to stumble across an edit counter/stats page that uses bubble charts, leave a message on my talk page if you remember. Thanks! Inks.LWC (talk) 19:10, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
I asked at the Village Pimp and was referred to User talk:X!/Archives/6/2010#OptIn - it's a dead counter. NtheP (talk) 21:55, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, then the thing I'm looking for must be something else; because I saw it working only a couple months ago. Inks.LWC (talk) 04:37, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

I finally found it. It was Wikichecker. Inks.LWC (talk) 18:54, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Undeletion Request - File:Ranger X - Gameplay.png

You've deleted the wrong revisions at File:Ranger X - Gameplay.png. You deleted an image which was actually at 320x240 and replaced it with a version scaled to 365x273 which has introduced artifacts into the image. - hahnchen 20:41, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

The previous versions you uploaded were all 640 x 480. They might have been displayed at 320 x 240 in the article but the native upload was at the higher resolution. If you want to upload a version at the lower resolution then fine. NtheP (talk) 20:58, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Not true. The previous versions were actually all 320x240 - that's the resolution of the screenshot. The Mega Drive cannot output at 640x480. The files may have been 640x480, but the resolution was not, it's the latter we actually care about. - hahnchen 21:01, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Borderline, but as the imagery did receive critical acclaim, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. NtheP (talk) 21:24, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. You can see that there's 2 pixels for every line of resolution. I think it was just a quirk of the emulator I was using. - hahnchen 21:36, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Yep, accurate reproductions of obsolete resolutions on modern formats isn't easy at times. :-) NtheP (talk) 21:40, 16 April 2013 (UTC)


Do a search on Lidice and Stoke-on-Trent and after a bit of research you'll find that EVERYTHING that has happened over the last 3 years has so because of my wife and I. I think it's important that we celebrate and acknowledge those who do special things for their community (especially if those things have the power to regenerate those communities) so that they don't get discouraged and, instead, continue to feel appreciated. Incidentally, I also see my addition of Sir Barnett Stross was taken down, which I find staggering, given his work for the city. Instead there seems to be an emphasis on glamour models and sports people - many quite un-notable whose contribution to the future of the city is spurious at best. In Stoke-on-Trent Orwell's projections are being borne out and I don't like the idea of other people (the city council and its cronies) taking credit for work it hasn't done. I will be setting up our own page soon, properly referenced, sourced etc and I'd like to think that your view was that our contribution to Stoke-on-Trent's future was significant enough to feature on Wikipedia. Alan Gerrard — Preceding unsigned comment added by Geminichez (talkcontribs) 07:59, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia isn't a place to celebrate and acknowledge those who do special things for their community. It's for articles about people or event who's notability has been established by their reporting in verifiable, reliable sources elsewhere. It is also not a place for autobiographies, especially if you appear to have a gripe about attribution of credit and I really would suggest that you read the policies on autobiographies and conflicts on interest before you start on any articles. NtheP (talk) 17:48, 18 April 2013 (UTC)


Hi, I am not sure why this file has been deleted as a non-free image. The uploader used the rational "Taken myself, of a product that I own.". It doesn't appear elsewhere and judging by the quality it is certainly not a commercial image. I see no reason to doubt that this was a free image taken by the uploader? TerriersFan (talk) 19:24, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Could be right, let me take another look. NtheP (talk) 19:34, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

:Yes, you're right, tried restoring but got this error message Error undeleting file: A non-identical file already exists at "mwstore://local-swift/local-public/archive/6/67/20070909025434!Sampledutchg.jpg". Any idea how to get past this? NtheP (talk) 19:50, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

The more I look into this the greyer the area gets and I think deletion may be correct but I can also see that there are differing views. There are numerous questions asked about product packaging at WP:MCQ e.g. Wikipedia:Media copyright questions/Archive/2011/October#Copyright status of a photo I took of a commerical product and Wikipedia:Media copyright questions/Archive/2007/May#Picture of Product. There's also the text at commons:Category:Beer cans, the image deleted does contain a logo where the copyright status of that logo is unknown and I don't think it's de minimis or too simple. The image was correctly labelled with regard to the image itself but needed a FUR for the product in the image (as suggested by the addition of the {{Non-free product cover}} template and that was the basis for my decision to delete. Happy to discuss further. NtheP (talk) 21:32, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
No doubt the logo will be copyright to the producer of the beer. If the issue is the logo then I should be happy to add a FUR for that? TerriersFan (talk) 22:01, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. Hope you can restore the image and not get the error message I did. NtheP (talk) 22:42, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I got the same error but with some fiddling about I have recovered the file and its history. I have added two licences each with a FUR. The first is to cover the photograph of the product as a whole. The second is to cover the logo in the photograph. Before I add the image back to the article perhaps you would look over these and make any changes that you deem necessary? Thanks! TerriersFan (talk) 21:15, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
The first licence, for the photo itself could be the GFDL licence that it was originally uploaded with and the FUR covers the product. NtheP (talk) 21:54, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
The problem is that it never had an explicit GFDL unless the uploader (who has now left WP) implicitly gave one by the act of uploading? TerriersFan (talk) 22:52, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
I'd still be inclined to make it GFDL or {{PD-self}} as implied by the original upload. NtheP (talk) 08:24, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Done. Thanks! TerriersFan (talk) 15:02, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Belated congrats

...for getting the mop. I haven't been following RfA as closely as I used to, so I missed it. Glad to see that you are starting with some of the more tedious work to be done :)--SPhilbrick(Talk) 17:29, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Images with OTRS pending

Hi Nthep, as a friendly reminder, if an uploader says on an image that they have sent a letter of permission, even if they don't use the OTRS pending template, and the claim is not completely ridiculous, please don't delete the image unless someone with OTRS access has had a chance to review it. File:Thomas Greanias official headshot.jpeg is what this is in reference to, please see [1]. (If there is an {{OTRS received}} tag and whoever - probably me - added the npd timer or didn't see fit to remove it, then it's fine to delete the image. I usually set the timer at a month when we get a letter of permission that is deficient in some way - that way, there's time for us to receive a reply.) By the way, there's a huge backlog of permissions emails. If you would be interested in volunteering, help is desperately needed. --B (talk) 15:36, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

I tend not to delete if there is any suggestion of o/s OTRS going on, if I've missed some and deleted them, sorry. Thanks for letting me know what time limits you work to, I see your name on a lot of them and I hold off but wasn't sure for how long. It's like those in Category:Wikipedia files with unknown source as of 21 April 2013 et al, where until I see your message about you investigating sourcing removed, I'm leaving be on the contents of those categories. How do you get involved in the OTRS work, I've never fathomed that one out? NtheP (talk) 15:57, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
The message in Category:Wikipedia files with unknown source as of 21 April 2013 is just from me as me - not OTRS. There are a lot of them in there like File:Bruno Munari.png where the PD tag is nonsense, but they can/should be retagged as fair use. That was the purpose of the message - to ask that they not be deleted blindly. If you want to go through there and delete ones that would never be appropriate as fair use or want to help source some of them, that's fine. Or some of them like File:Torre Velasca, Milan.png for example - this one might really be public domain (if it was taken before 1976). It's worth doing some research on it rather than just deleting it. That's all I was saying. As for how to volunteer to help with OTRS, please see m:OTRS/Volunteering. There is around a 2-month backlog in the permissions queues (so anywhere that someone says they have emailed permissions should get at least that long before being deleted, unless it's just an absurd claim). I have only been doing the OTRS tickets for about a week, but it's been quite educational - it's helped me to empathize with the level of frustration that some people feel with our processes. I highly recommend it if you have time/interest. --B (talk) 16:17, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
OTRS would certainly make this job easier. If the queue on permissions is that long then perhaps the F11 template needs to be altered to move the dates forward to at least a month before they are eligible for deletion. NtheP (talk) 16:25, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, the reason I asked for OTRS access was primarily for being able to check on things before deleting them. But the backlog is so long that I've just been spending my time trying to knock it down rather than doing image deletions here. Somehow, this process needs to be fixed. --B (talk) 18:01, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
I have decided to try something. For images in any of the "Wikipedia files with unknown source" categories, if the user has email enabled, I'm going to try sending this:

Hi [username],

When you uploaded[Filename].jpg you did not specify any information about the image. Is this a photograph to which you own the copyright or did you obtain it from someone else?

In order for images to be used on Wikipedia, the copyright holder must explicitly permit their use under the terms of a license such as the "Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0" license, which permits anyone to use the image for any reason so long as they attribute the source.

If you are the photographer, please let me know and I can help you correctly publish your photo under an acceptable license.

If you are not the photographer, but would like to ask the photographer for permission to use the photo, please see for a sample letter of permission that can be used.

Please feel free to ask on my talk page - - if I can be of assistance.


(I will reset the timer and indicate in the edit summary that I have done so ... that way there won't be duplicated effort.) I have no idea if we will get any replies off of these, but it's at least worth a try if a user has email enabled. --B (talk) 20:51, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Good plan. Have you asked at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Images and Media to see if anyone there could lend a hand? NtheP (talk) 21:26, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Hadn't thought about it. Is it an active project? --B (talk) 22:44, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Looks like it and there's a few other admins listed as participants. NtheP (talk) 22:54, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Can you give me some help on that?? Miss Bono (zootalk) 16:28, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Sure, just copy and paste the code I put on your talk page onto the image page. I'll do any tiding up later. NtheP (talk) 16:33, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Done. I tried to fix some grammar mistake but it still shows the "of" instead the "to". Take a look at the image history Miss Bono (zootalk) 17:24, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Thinking about it

Hi Nthep. I was thinking about your removal of Health and Morals of Apprentices Act 1802 from Wikiproject Lancashire - this edit. I don't agree. The act was about cotton mills, a primarily Lancashire phenomonen, raised by a Lancashire man. It can be argued that the repercussions were broad, but I believe this is definitely a Lancashire article. WormTT(talk) 09:58, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Worm, long time no speak. I disagree, if this were a local act I would agree the tagging but a national act where the origin is fairly innocuous sorry but no. Were the events leading up to the act notable in their own right then perhaps or even probably but this is a bit of a nothing. There's a minor secondary point but if a geo project is applicable then it should be Wikiproject Greater Manchester as Radcliffe is in Gtr Mcr. I know it wasn't in the early 19th century but a circle that has been gone round several times and why WP:L&C leaves places in modern Gtr Manchester and Merseyside alone.

Yeah, that's fair enough. Have a good one :) WormTT(talk) 07:28, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Copyright issues

Nthep, Thank you for your advice and comments on both the File:Lovers of Valdaro.jpg and the image for Jason Stadtlander. It's been very hard trying to wrap my head around the copyright restrictions but I'm slowly getting it. Just wanted to say thank you for your help! B4theword (talk) 16:35, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

No worries, image licencing is about the hardest thing to get your head round on wikipedia, so please ask away if you have any questions. NtheP (talk) 16:52, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


Is WikiProject Staffordshire a work in progress or archived, you had a concentrated burst of creation but nothing recently? Btw I have a similar background, born in Staffordshire, living in Yorkshire, hence my eclectic mix of edits. Cheers. Keomike (talk) 20:03, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, it was a proposal that went to Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals in 2011 but failed to garner enough support, so I just plonked the intro page which is a pretty shameless copy of WP:L&C into a user page for a future date. NtheP (talk) 20:51, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Not sure how a WikiProject proposal can gain momentum or critical mass without targeted consultation. Even a mature project must have a regular turnover of active participants which can threaten its viability. Still, well done for trying. Keomike (talk) 21:56, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


Hello. You deleted a scan of my artwork that I uploaded to wiki under creative commons ( I am the "wiki-proven" sole copyright-holder of the finalized album cover artwork ( and the more recent file I submitted is simply a scan/snapshot into my process as an artist (the pencils stage) working towards the final product. The art is mine as already accepted by wiki, I am simply "showing my work" and presenting a "making of" showcase with this additional file/image. Please reinstate the image file page as soon as you are able and include the {{OTRS pending}} tag. Thanks. Cadillacula (talk) 22:23, 15 May 2013 (UTC)


by user:Ronhjones. Thanks Ron. NtheP (talk) 18:13, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

No problem - let's hope he sorts it out in the 30 days he has to do so.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:21, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Preview Pictures of Durban City


You have previously helped me in uploading pictures, however since you are a more experienced user, I think you would be able to make the following change: Durban is one of South Africa's most famous cities and it is the only page of the three major South African cities that does not have an appealing picture previewing the major attractions of the city. All the pages on Wikipedia of major cities have a picture that previews at least 5 of the cities major attractions.

Please create one of these pictures for Durban as it's picture is just that of a single landscape.

Thank you! StangerManor (talk) 10:11, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Stangermanor, hi, if you can find a number of free images of Durban they can be put together in a montage but you need to find the free images first. NtheP (talk) 18:50, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello. I have found these pictures on Wikipedia Commons. Can you use them?


I really hope that you can use these! :). If you can and depending on how many needed, choose the best and please create the montage.

Thank you so so much! :) StangerManor (talk) 20:20, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Illinois Woman's Press Association

Thanks for your comment NTHEP but as someone who was and remains responsible for what goes up on the IWPA website this appears to be a catch twenty-two.

I need to ask myself permission to allow me to write about our organization? I'm the one who would grant it. So rather than Wikipedia work with me they took down the article and called me on copyright infringement? Our founders would be outraged. I'm attempting to get them recognition for their 128 years of achievements.

I would think Wikipedia would be more helpful. Blondewolf (talk) 18:46, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Does this seem strange?

Greetings Nthep.

I saw that you're active right now on the logs so I decided to put this forward to you.

10:04, 28 May 2013 User account Mlet (talk | contribs) was created automatically

But take at look at User talk:Merrilee (Mlet redirects to Merrilee, User:Mlet ) Does it seem strange to you that the Talk Page already has 22 items on it in 9 minutes? It may be nothing but I just wanted to get the opinion of someone wiser than me on this matter.

Regards. MM (What's up pup?) - (Chocolate Cakes ◕‿◕) 10:13, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

MM, could be legitimate alternate account but I'm editing on a very flaky mobile connection so not really in a position to check it out further at the moment. NtheP (talk) 10:48, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough then, I will pass the concern on to another Admin. Have a good day. MM (What's up pup?) - (Chocolate Cakes ◕‿◕) 11:02, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi, this is my talkpage -- I think this is everything from my Mlet talk page, transferred over (I requested that Mlet be moved to Merrilee. Nothing looks weird about it to me. Merrilee (talk) 14:12, 28 May 2013 (UTC)


I am contacting you cause I need your help. I posted some personal information on my talk page and then I removed it and I wanted to know if you can delete the trace of that deletion. Please reply at my talk since I don't have you on my Watchlist. Thanks in advance. Miss Bono (zootalk) 18:48, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

I replied on my talk page. :) Miss Bono (zootalk) 19:37, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Seen it, don't worry it will work out ok for you. NtheP (talk) 19:39, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
