Fair use rationale for Image:Moore24.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Moore24.png. 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. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

America the Beautiful[edit]

The way that comment was written sounds like an obvious hoax based on ignorance. The song and the poem were written in separate places and times, and the poem was put to various music before the one hymn became the final selection. That subtle point had escaped my critical eye somehow. In short, it is unlikely there would have been any "original manuscript for the song." :) Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 01:06, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Express 37 image[edit]

I'm sorry, but the image was being uploaded as "for use in Wikipedia only". We can't accept such images. You must license it for re-use by any party; otherwise, it must be deleted. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for further explanation. --Orange Mike | Talk 03:39, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Express37.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Express37.gif. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 05:06, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Express37.gif[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Express37.gif. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Orange Mike | Talk 19:45, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Express37.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Express37.gif. 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, 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

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. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 22:49, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Rubik's cube group, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Inverse (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Rubik's Cube - "Squares" subgroup ...[edit]

... using Singmaster's name for it; i.e., built up just from 180-degree turns. For me, the most interesting facet of that subgroup, is the fact that beginners can (without too much difficulty) learn how to solve puzzles scrambled just within that subgroup, and that many of the techniques mastered at that early stage remain useful when you go on to tackle any cube configuration. A fuller discussion of that has been written up in ...

This particular branch of Algebra also helps to illustrate the concept of the diameter [of a finite group] - i.e., it has now been established that 20 is the diameter of the Full Group, whereas 15 (I think) was the diameter of the Squares Group. --DLMcN (talk) 21:45, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

I just saw this today. I'll work through it. Thanks. --Olsonist (talk) 16:27, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Reversions to Conservapedia[edit]

I gave a general answer on my page about your questions, but on the particulars, only pages that are explicitly mentioned in the secondary sources can be mentioned and Rationalwiki is very definitely not counted as a WP:Reliable source as there is no editorial control and no recognized authority writing it. The page that was mentioned in the secondary source was 'Counterexamples to Relativity' which is mentioned later in the article but not explicitly linked. The breast cancer page isn't explicitly mentioned but there are secondary sources referenced which describe it later on in the article. Dmcq (talk) 23:50, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

Hi! Is there a reason why all your edits are marked as minor edits? (See Help:Minor edit.) The reason I ask is because a while back I worked on a software bug that left some users with the minor edit box always checked and I thought we had found all of the users who were affected. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:00, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I hadn't read the help section. Generally I mark small edits as minor. I'll be more careful. But some of my edits aren't minor. I'll check back over them to see if they were marked as minor.--Olsonist (talk) 17:17, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
No problem. If you run into the bug (In other words, if you have to uncheck the minor edit box every time - it doesn't remember) drop me a line on my talk page. Unwatching this page now. Cheers! --Guy Macon (talk) 21:56, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to wikiFeed[edit]

Hello Olsonist,

I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We have created a tool, called wikiFeed, that allows you to specify Twitter and/or RSS feeds from news sources that are interesting to you. wikiFeed then helps you make connections between those feeds and Wikipedia articles. We believe that using this tool may be a lot of fun, and may help you come up with some ideas on how to contribute to Wikipedia in ways that interest you. Please participate! To do so, complete this survey and follow this link to our website. Once you're there, click the "create an account" link to get started.

For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at We appreciate your time and hope you enjoy playing with wikiFeed!

Thanks! MarchionessGrey (talk) 21:05, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
