Hello[edit]

Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. Here are some useful links in case you haven't already found them;


If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

I am very glad that at last there is someone who will start serious and systmatic contributions.

free dance[edit]

Please put it into the appropriate category in the relevant lists (I guess it woud be pages 20th century concert dance and List of dance style categories, but I assume you know better). Mikkalai 18:26, 2 Jun 2004 (UTC),

no you were right, all done! Ohka- 11:30, 3 Jun 2004 (UTC)



Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! for working on dance-related articles. The very little I remember from college is just enough to annoy me that we don't have decent coverage (the fact that you just recently created en pointe is startling enough), but not enough to be able to write decent articles myself without lots of research. So many kudos from me, and keep up the good work... -- Seth Ilys 17:15, 3 Jul 2004 (UTC)


To create subpages in you userspace you can use the form user:username/subpage. I have moved your Ohka- to do to User:Ohka-/to do for you. Dunc_Harris| 15:13, 5 Jul 2004 (UTC)

and your bibliography. Dunc_Harris| 15:21, 5 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I'm going to start helping too[edit]

I just noticed what a sorry state all the dance related articles were in, so I figured I'd start categorizing and researching to see what information I can add. Glad to see someone else is, and I love your biblography. I'll be working on the categorizing for awhile- let's get this organized! Lyellin 11:54, Jul 27, 2004 (UTC)

that's great!, what do you think we could do to help each other out? any game plan suggestions Ohka-
I think the wikiproject idea is great (was actually thinking about that myself), but I have no idea how to go about starting one up, so I've been cautious to go ahead with it. Once I went through Ballet and tried categorizing, I realized how much Ballroom dancing needed... those are the only two I've looked at, although I suspect there are more in the dance section itself that need help. Lyellin 07:50, Aug 3, 2004 (UTC)
The Wikiproject page already has a red link for Dance, so I think I will create that with the basic template, and we'll start going through. I do believe we'll have to create descendent projects for some of the major forms of dance... and perhaps different forms for dancers, shows, choerographers, etc. Regardless, we'll talk about it there? Lyellin 08:05, Aug 3, 2004 (UTC)
Try Wikipedia:WikiProject_Dance. Just started it with the template.

Question about this photo[edit]

Did you take the picture yourself? Do you have any others out there - it looks great, and since I am also a hobby-dance-photographer... (http://gallery.dekay.org) I am always looking for other dance pics ;) dekay 10:07, 20 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Chorea[edit]

Hi, User:Defrenrokorit introduced confusion into articles. Now we have four of them: Chorea, Chorea (dance), Chorea (disease), Chorea (disambiguation), all of them started their own diverging lifes. I suggest to kill one of them. Since the decease is most common usage of the word today, I suggest to make Chorea a decease article and forget Chorea (disease). In order to keep autorship I suggest the following complicated sequence.

I can do it all by myself, of leave the last step to you (if you wish to keep the authorsip). Your opinion? Mikkalai 03:34, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)

hello, i agree with what you are saying, i added the info to show that the terms all come from the same root, there really shouldn't be so many pages, just Chorea and Chorea (dance) it's a bit compliated so i'll let you do it (feeling clumsy at the moment). i'm really not bothered about loosing authorship, what good for wikipidea is good for me! thanks Ohka- 15:29, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Circle dance[edit]

Can you take a look at Circle dance? It was pretty biased. I straightened a bit, but still something must be done. Mikkalai 04:01, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Image at dance page[edit]

The image is listed for deletion, because it is under a non-free license. Since you are the author, you may want to reconsider its level of licensing. Mikkalai 22:11, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Replaceable fair use Image:Apollo-guidance-computer.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Apollo-guidance-computer.jpg. I noticed 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 {{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.

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 even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 15:38, 10 October 2007 (UTC)


Copyright violation in Scenography[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Scenography, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Scenography is unquestionably copyright infringement, and no assertion of permission has been made.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Scenography, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Fair use rationale for Image:First-arpanet-imp-log.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:First-arpanet-imp-log.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes 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 non-free media 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. ViperSnake151 18:44, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Dance code repository[edit]

Hello,

I am looking for a dance code repository that would provide an organized set of free dances to make a robot dance. It could be curated manually or generated through BHV files. Also it could be based on Dance Notation Markup Language (DNML) and XML-encoded STEP (XSTEP) but I never saw those format before. I checked MikuMikuDance but did not find any community-driven website and I am not sure it is general enough (but would surely be a good start).

I described that idea a bit more on my webpage if you are curious http://wiki.seedea.org/Seedea/SandIdeabox#DanceCodeRepository

Cheers, Utopiah (talk) 14:22, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Rasta Thomas[edit]

Rasta Thomas will turn 30 years old on July 18, 2011, and I would LOVE for him to be the featured article of the day on that day. I'm calling foryou your help to join in on taking this article to greatness, and giving Rasta a little love.--Esprit15d • talkcontribs 20:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
