Welcome![edit]

Hello Oahc/Archive 1, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! When editing please provide edit summaries, this is your place to explain your edit so that other users don't mistake your meaningful edits as vandalism. 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:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!   J\/\/estbrook       16:41, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Are you really the source of this image?[edit]

I was browsing through the images and notice this Image:Laura Breckenridge.jpg. Are you really the source of his photo? I can see clearly that is from Zap2it.com which is a commerical website that uses copyright terms of usage. You only use the GFDL tag if you actually took the photo or the website says it uses GFDL. Zap2it clearly doesn't use GFDL terms of usage. [1] Could you provide proof that you actually the one that took the photo by uploading a slightly high resolutioner version without the Zap2It logo? Thanks. --J. Nguyen 21:16, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Same thing goes for Image:Childwithdimples.jpg - it's one of the first showing up on Google image search, when searching for "dimples". It's hosted on a private website, www.jerilyndufresne.com, and superficially does not appear to be connected to "Oahc". --Niffux 12:49, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Blond[edit]

Please read Wikipedia:Revert and Wikipedia:Three-revert rule. Both yourself and User:Synthe were guilty of this (see Blond history) and can be subject to blocking. Thanks. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 01:13, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

And so I have blocked you for violation of this. →FireFox 21:41, 13 January 2006 (UTC)


Re: Great Neck Village School[edit]

You're quite welcome. I've given the vandal in question the appropriate warning templates. --Winter 20:46, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry,I have no clue what you are talking about. All I did was revert vandalism. --Winter 20:56, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

I've asked for a 3rd opinion about including the reverted information. -- Jeandré, 2006-03-21t17:59z

Hi![edit]

Hi! I'm a fellow student of yours at GNS (e-mail me to find out my real name), and you're the first Wikipedian that I have confirmed to know in person. --TML1988 04:34, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Semi-automated template substitution[edit]

Copyright on Image:GreatNeckVillageSchool.jpg.[edit]

Please provide evidence that The Village School released the photo under the GFDL, or that Kyla has the copyright and released it under the GFDL.

Do you know User:Kyla or Jessica, who seems to have copied the photo from a website? -- Jeandré, 2006-03-15t20:54z

Multiracial[edit]

I understand how you defined multiracial. Racial demographics of the United States lists five races; Latinos are not distinct from Whites in that definition. Mulattos or Eurasians are universally accepted as multiracial and would be good examples to use in the Multiracial article. Shawnc 16:35, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

It depends on who you ask. Hispanic is considered a race by the US EEOC[2], but not by the US census, nor by the UK census (see 2001 England census). Some people would say Hispanic/Latino is an ethnicity as opposed to race. Anyway, the concept of well-defined races are somewhat social constructs. If we stick to the more basically understood groups in the article it'd be less controversial. Shawnc 01:22, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:Childwithdimples.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:Childwithdimples.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. Please go to its page to provide the necessary information on the source or licensing of this image (if you have any), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Image:Childwithdimples.jpg: what's wrong with this image? I made it myself...why can't I put it up there? (Oahc)

If you really are the person who took this photo, then there's no problem. However, we need some kind of evidence to show this. You were notified about this on your talk page back in February, but did not respond either on your talk page or on the talk page of the person who notified you. If you can provide such evidence now, the image will be removed from the list of possibly unfree images and will not be deleted. If you cannot prove that you are authorized to grant GFDL permission for this image, then it will be deleted to protect its copyright. --Icarus 21:09, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
How do I provide the evidence? (Oahc)
The image appears to be taken from www.jerilyndufresne.com. Do you have an e-mail address from this website (one that end in "@jerilyndufresne.com")? If so, I can tell you how to use it to prove that you're really from that site. --Icarus 21:39, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I don't see the image anywhere on the site. (Oahc)

okay...maybe i did saw it. and how did you find the site anyway? You don't see the image up there anyway....only the same girl...but different photos.(Oahc)

this photo at jerilyndufresne.com is identical to your photo. ---J.S (t|c) 22:18, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Oh, just do a search on Google images for "dimples." Did you know knowingly violating copyrights is against the law? ---J.S (t|c) 22:19, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
