Matani2005 18:38, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)~ == Plague in Poland ==</math> Hi! Welcome to Wiki. Noted that you reverted a Black Death entry by an anonymous. Reversion is usually only done for vandalism or for vastly inappropriate information. If you have a question or concern about the accuracy of information or whether it belongs in the article, the preferred practice is to move it to the discussion page along with your reasons for moving it. Then the author, logged in or an anon, can respond. I moved the paragraph below to the discussion page, so please add a comment on your reason for reverting/moving the info.

The exaple of Poland is especially notable, because it was the king Casimir_III_of_Poland goverment who stopped the spread of plague. The 40 day quarantine of foreigners and free distribution of food prevented black death from spreading in Poland.

Thanks. Look forward to working with you. WBardwin 00:03, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)

France[edit]

I was cleaning up on Wikipedia:Protected page, saw it was listed, checked to see if it was still protected, saw it wasn't, saw the vandalism, decided to reprotect. Not something I put a lot of thought into, though. Noel (talk) 21:19, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

FK Teplice[edit]

I found Draks "comments" uncalled for. A civility notice has been left on the page. Megan1967 11:55, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Yes, some people lose their sense of community when defending something they are passionate about. I suppose if the article stays I shall add {{expand}} to many of those one line soccer team articles. If one is going to add something to Wikipedia that they feel is notable, they should have something more to say about it than "... is a soccer team from Teplice." — oo64eva (AJ) (U | T | C) @ 17:00, Apr 17, 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Naming conventions (military units)[edit]

Hi. My watchlist shows that you were interested enough to work on a military-topic article, so I wanted to make sure you were aware of the new Wikipedia:Naming conventions (military units) project, in case you didn't see any of the announcements. — B.Bryant 22:33, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thanks for your thoughtful support on my RfA! I shall attempt to put the shiny new buttons to good use. Looks like you're off to a nice start on Wikipedia, yourself... Happy editing! Mindspillage (spill yours?) 03:07, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Jackass[edit]

That's totally weird. What part of what I typed wound up on your template? RickK 23:05, Apr 19, 2005 (UTC)

Strange. I can see in my User contributions that I did edit your template. I dunno how that happened. Sorry. RickK 23:14, Apr 19, 2005 (UTC)

Whew, I'm glad to know it's something simple. RickK 23:19, Apr 19, 2005 (UTC)

Adminship nomination[edit]

Thank you for your kind comments. I haven't been nominated before but I'd be very happy to accept adminship if it was offered. Thanks for offering to nominate me! — Trilobite (Talk) 09:10, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

50 and fifty are equally correct. Wikipedia is "correct", not necessarily "formal".[edit]

You said "50 => fifty, spelling out words in a sentence is considered more formal" and changed "50" to "fifty".

Names of numbers in English says:

Whether to use digits or words

According to your friendly neighborhood copy editor and/or English teacher, the numbers zero through nine should be "written out" – meaning instead of "1" and "2", one would write "one" and "two".

   Example: "I have two apples." (Correct)
   Example: "I have 2 apples." (Incorrect)

After "nine", one can head straight back into the 10, 11, 12, etc., although some write out the numbers until "twelve".

   Example: "I have 28 grapes." (Correct)
   Example: "I have twenty-eight grapes." (Incorrect)

Another common usage is to write out any number that can be expressed as one or two words, and use figures otherwise.

   Examples:
       "There are six million dogs." (Correct)
       "There are 6,000,000 dogs." (Incorrect)
       "That is one hundred and twenty-five oranges." (Incorrect)
       "That is 125 oranges." (Correct)

Numbers at the beginning of a sentence should also be written out.

The above rules are not always used. In literature, larger numbers might be spelled out." 4.250.138.13 09:34, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, thanks for the advice. I do try and make edit summaries but only when I am particuarly angry (when I have deleted something that is obviously not suitable and that no-one else has deleted) or when I add a substantial amount of content to an article, like a new section or paragraph. I will try and fill out summaries every time in the future though. But out of interest, can you tell me which edit I made which prompted you to advise me? --Speedway 16:43, Apr 24, 2005 (UTC)

Page protection[edit]

I didn't protect the page, nor do I know who did I'm afraid. The log shows my name, but I hadn't even looked at the page for some time. I've unprotected it, anyway, as there seems to be no reason for it to be protected. Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 16:44, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

copula (statistics)[edit]

I think it's really inappropriate to have a section on copulas, in the sense in which that term is used in probability theory and statistics, within the article titled copula, because it is not at all the same thing as what that article is about. I've deleted the section and created a new article titled copula (statistics). The article titled copula treats the usual meaning of that word rather than the one treated in copula (statistics). Michael Hardy 02:54, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

Hi! Oh, i think you have the wrong impression about my comments on the John Kerry talk page. I am very cool. In fact, i am very happy to see that Rhobite (a biased editor from Amherst, Mass.) didn't get his way in trying to limit the information about Senator Kerry's admission to war crimes. I think it is Paul (Rhobite) who is upset as can be seen from his comments. I appreciate your care for my mental state however. I was indeed rather upset when Rhobite banned me for inserting the quote citing a 3-reversion rule which he, himself, violated (but didn't ban himself). Now that other editors were attracted to the issue and stated that Rhobite doesn't have the right to limit such vital information, i am very happy indeed. My personal message to Rhobite was the truth. He should not try to hide the flaws of his beloved Senator if he is to be a truly NPOV editor on Wikipedia. Wikipedia will eventually be taken more seriously as a source if editors like Rhobite learn to include rather than exclude. I come from China so i am very sensitive to people limiting information. Wikipedia should be about the truth. Don't you agree? So thanks for the attention! Don't eat too much ice-cream, it's bad for you, especially if you have diabetes :-(

Take care my friend!

I agree with you that any information deemed vital should always be included if true. However, information, while true can be presented in a misleading manner in such a way that people form the wrong impression because something is taken out of context. You do have to understand though that in a community where people are working together towards the same goal, name calling and verbal abuse are very disruptive to the process. Your opinions about other people in this community should be left in your head, not on talk pages. If you disagree with someone there are ways to deal with that. Just in the future, try your best to make this a place where people feel that they can exchange ideas freely, without being singled out or called a name. Oh and please leave your signature whenever putting personal messages on talk pages, it's good Wikiquette.— oo64eva (AJ) (U | T | C) @ 16:10, Apr 27, 2005 (UTC)
I don't disagree with you my friend. I really tried not to present it in a biased fashion. I was only including the information relevent to the war crimes issue. But the full quote is better if people are sensitive to my edit and i have always welcomed people to insert the full quote. I am very pleased to see it. I didn't insult anyone except for perhaps "tree-hugger" but that was meant to be an exaggerated joke. Sort of like calling a little girl a nazi for not sharing her toys. It was a joke and i meant it that way. It's hard to tell peoples' tone from words though. Sorry for the confusion. What i said to Rhobite was just the truth and i hope he takes the advice so he can better his own bias and make Wikipedia a stronger community. I am not sure how to leave my signature so i will just add my online name.
Thanks again, friend. User: Xiao Tsu I hope i did that right :-\

Thank you[edit]

Hello. I'm going round thanking everyone for voting for me, in accordance with wiki-tradition, so I'll start here and say thanks for the nomination, I really appreciate the support. I suspect you are on the fast track to adminship yourself judging by the administrative work you do. See you around! — Trilobite (Talk) 13:11, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Be careful![edit]

The decay energy of tritium is 18.6 keV, not 18.6 MeV! Fortunately it was in the article. But if you did other isotopes, you should probably go and double-check the decay energies, because that's a pretty nasty error - it's actually not a totally unreasonable value, but it's definitely wrong. --Andrew 03:22, Apr 29, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I did in fact know that it was 18.6 keV. What happened was I made it easier on the person entering the data so they wouldn't have to type MeV, the table would generate it since so many radioactive isotopes decay in the MeV range. What happened was that when I was actually entering the data, I forgot it would come out to MeV. Thanks for catching that, definatley good we have many editors. — oo64eva (AJ) (U | T | C) @ 06:38, Apr 29, 2005 (UTC)

My RFA[edit]

Thank you for your comments on my RFA. Although the voting period just ended with a 14-8-2 vote, I will admit once and for all that I used it more as an evaluation of myself. Being promoted would have been a plus. I was more interested in who voted, when they voted, who would change their votes and when, and the comments I would receive. Hopefully I will correct the main weakness that was raised by those who voted oppose -- that I was too eager to put articles on VFD. Also, I will try to interact more with those Wikipedians who did not vote at all.

As for next month, I don't know if I will nominate myself again. I might not think about it until somebody else puts me up there on RFA at a later date. Eventually, I see myself as an admin, especially as the number of articles and users continues to grow. Thanks again and good luck at improving this vast archive of free knowledge. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 09:16, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

isotopes[edit]

I did know of your wikiproject. However, I wanted to get the isotope information in the element articles fixed and uniform first. This aspect is notably outside the scope of your project. If/when I get done I will happily aid you in your quest for an article for each isotope. My copy of the chart of the nuclides is almost as old as I am though :) --metta, The Sunborn 03:33, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

No worries, I have the 16th edition revised for 2002. It still isn't new enough for Hydrogen-7 though. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 04:23, May 5, 2005 (UTC)
Well the 14th edition of 1989 doesn't even have Hydrogen-4. I think I will get a new copy next year. --metta, The Sunborn 22:28, 6 May 2005 (UTC)

Oooh, I didn't realize there was a full-fledged project. I just noticed that a few isotope articles had these ad-hoc html tables, so I replaced them with a uniform template. Feel free to edit it, of course - it probably needs spaces for the half-life, whether it decays alpha or beta, etc. Also I noticed that a lot of element articles like Uranium already had a table of common isotopes so I was wondering if that wasn't a better way to do it, rather than breaking it up into separate articles for each nuclide. BTW, is this the correct way to leave a message? --Keenan Pepper 18:21, 14 May 2005 (UTC) (I think that's how to sign my name...)

copyright crusader[edit]

Jeannemarie Devolites

Hi. I'm alerting you that your article, Jeannemarie Devolites, is a possible copyright violation because duplicate text of your article appears here (http://www.devolites.org/JD_about.html). If you are unsure of Wikipedia's copyright and fair use policy, consult this page before further editing. If this is an actual copyright violation, and you want to rewrite the article in your own words, start here. In the future, do not copy articles verbatim from other sources. If you do make future additions to Wikipedia, make sure they are of your original work. If you decide to take basic ideas from other sources please cite them. Thank you. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 21:36, May 8, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, Alex. IT WAS CITED, YOU PRICK. Y'all had nothing on her before. I dropped in the woman's own description of herself. I seriously doubt that she would have any problem with the widest possible dissemination of her info.

Okay, thanks for calling me a prick, that's real mature. I alert contributors of copyright violations as a courtesy. I did you a favor by letting you know it was a violation in the event you never look back at the article. That way you know what not to do on Wikipedia.
As for citations, anybody could copy information and slap a citation at the end. What you did was not a proper way to cite a source. See this. Jeannemarie Devolites did not write that, her campaign staff did, a staff that gets paid money to maintain her website. We are not an encyclopedia that just copy pastes other peoples paid work. If you are disappointed that we did not have an article on her, then write on yourself, in your own words. Sure you can use her website to get some stats, birthplaces, family members, education, etc... but you certainly are not welcome to copy paste the information without expressed permission by the author. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 02:46, May 9, 2005 (UTC)


Nice job[edit]

Sega Sammy Holdings merge[edit]

Just so you know, your merge was missing a lot of page history. If you ever need to do something like this again, seek help from an admin to merge the histories. Andre (talk) 23:18, May 11, 2005 (UTC)

Yes, you are correct, Sammy's page history is now on the Sega Sammy article which is a redirect page because Sega Sammy Holdings was already created and couldn't be moved there. I then moved redirected Sega Sammy to Sega Sammy Holdings. I was going to ask an admin about it later. Thanks for getting on that. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 23:29, May 11, 2005 (UTC)

Cleanup of Chicago Community Area Map Images[edit]

Feel free to clean up the images I submitted for maps of the Chicago Community Areas; I wanted to fix them myself but it has been low on my list. After I had uploaded the set of map images I noticed an error which you should be aware of an hopefully will be able to correct. Note (on the SE edge of all maps) that the East Side Community Area, Area Number 52, is incorrectly marked as Area Number 51 (In other words, the number 51 appears on both the South Deering and the ajacent East Side commnity areas}. — Gerry (talk) 14:25, May 14, 2005 (UTC)

revenues[edit]

So what's the whole deal with the revenue data? Are you going to do it for every company? And change it each time the data goes up or down? Just curious to know your motivation and method. --Hersch 01:36, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

One day I went to the Barnes & Noble article and made a small correction to the company infobox. Weeks later I come back to find ugly {{{revenue}}} and {{{industry}}} unused parameters in the infobox. So I go to the talk page of the company infobox and realize that someone added this new information to the template and didn't change many of the 400 infoboxes. So I'm adding the data because it reflects poorly on Wikipedia if nobody does this and we have ugly open parameters on all of the infoboxes. Do I plan on updating them when their revenues change? Sure. I urge every Wikipedian to do the same. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 01:41, May 19, 2005 (UTC)
Well, I commend your wikintegrity. Kudos --Hersch 04:16, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

Engineer without a map[edit]

As a Purdue Enigineering Alumni and current resident of Uptown, I have a small problem with your community area editing.

You are trying to be an engineer, right? PLEASE learn how to read a map. Buena Park is a neighborhood in the Community Area of Uptown. Stop trying to change the boundaries of Lake View. They are static and officially defined by the City of Chicago.

J. Crocker

I am always honored to meet fellow Purdue Engineering Alumni, so it is a pleasure to meet you and work with you on editing this wonderful encyclopedia. I couldn't help but detect a certain distain in the context of your message. As a resident of Uptown, your input is invaluable to helping accurately map the boundaries of the neighborhoods in the Community Area of Uptown. I am not a resident of Uptown, I live directly above West Ridge, so all I have to go on is a stack of Chicago maps and the help of others I know who live in those community areas. Several maps showed part of the Lakeview neighborhood to be in the bottom corner of Uptown. I also knew that Buena Park is an Uptown neighborhood, but could not find the exact boundaries, so I decided to leave it out of the image until somebody would come along and help me to place the neighborhood. The Community Area editing I've been doing is a lot of work and I am very serious about accuracy. My map reading skills have been called into question by you, so I would like further elaboration on what about my map reading skills are lacking? I am always open to constructive criticism and correction, but please do it in a civil manner. Thanks. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 23:37, May 25, 2005 (UTC)

fair enough...[edit]

Sorry to imply any sort of insult, but I am a little upset with the continual assault on my neighborhood/community area. For years I've had to deal with people telling me that I live in some other neighborhood than Uptown when I am only a few blocks from "the uptown station". Your misguided edit of the Uptown article is just the latest in these annoyances.

Neighborhood maps are created by developers to sell property. Never trust that they represent anything other than the developer's own selfish interests. Uptown has a negative connotation to many yuppies, and therefore developers will invent new names to avoid the dreaded "Uptown" label in order to sell their $300,000 condos.

The City of Chicago defines 77 Community Areas, and are the only officially defined boundaries of the city's cultural divisions. Created in the early 20th century, there has been only one change to the community area map (Edgewater #77 was separated from Uptown #3).

The only area north of Irving Park Road that is in Lake View, is west of Clark street. Park Place Tower, the tallest building in Chicago outside of "downtown", is a good dividing point between the community areas. North of it is Uptown, south and including it is Lake View.


Furthermore I am a bit unsettled that my alma mater now accepts engineering students who don't know how to read maps. I pray and pray that you are better at nuclear engineering than map reading, for if you are ever allowed near any large nuclear device it may signal the end of life on planet Earth.

tribune...[edit]

I guess I'd expect that from the Tribune. So my beef should be directed toward them. They don't even know anything about their own city... oh well. They seem to be more interested in the suburbs, I guess that's where their readers are.

I posted the above link to the community area maps for you, check it out. Maybe I'll scan an image I have showing the "current" neighborhood boundaries within Uptown. Most of them are obsolete, but they're still interesting. No hard feelings... I'll refrain from deleting my talk page too.

WikiProject Isotopes[edit]

What's with WikiProject Isotopes? The project page still looks good with SMART goals setting and all, but nothing seems to be happening since the project "officially began" three weeks ago on 2005-05-09. What's the problem?
Herbee 09:46, 2005 May 30 (UTC)

Well I was hoping I'd see more enthusiasm from other Wikipedians to help jump start the project, meaning beginning with four or five members so I've been waiting for more. I have to immediate goals I would also like to take care of. First is to deal with the "marblegrams". I'm wondering what should take its place. Also, put the color coding into effect by fixing all of the infobox images with the new coding. I know the project is lagging behind its official start date but maybe we can get a few more members. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 12:40, May 30, 2005 (UTC)
Ah, yes. It seems that, in the best traditions of democracy, you have allowed people to vote for features that everybody wants to have, but nobody is prepared to implement. Let's keep it simple, I say. With respect to the marblegrams, see my suggestion on the project Talk page. As for the infobox images, we should do a quick, straightforward first iteration with just a two-color scheme, red/blue for radioactive/stable. After the basic information is in place for all 3100 isotopes, we can always start a second iteration to add the more elaborate color scheme.
Herbee 23:20, 2005 Jun 2 (UTC)
Good idea. We need to get this started so we'll start with that. After we're done, we'll probably have enough members that this type of voting is meaningful. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 23:23, Jun 2, 2005 (UTC)

Illinois image[edit]

Just want to say I really like that new image you added to the infobox. Keep up the goodwork on the project. -- BMIComp (talk, HOWS MY DRIVING) 04:18, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 04:26, July 23, 2005 (UTC)

Chicago municipality infoboxes[edit]

Thanks, I'll be adding more here and there. Your city images are just great! Seeing the location adds a lot to the article. You may be right about the township affiliation; if so, listing one township is probably best, especially since the city/village is probably only slightly a part of another.

Just a question: I saw that you had changed a couple of population percentage changes compared to 1990. I'm not sure where the 1990 numbers are listed on census.gov, but here is a document that would support the other figures. The Sun Times' website also lists these figures. Can you point me to the link where you were getting your numbers? HollyAm 03:10, 27 July 2005 (UTC)

Exactly, not having the location mapped out in these articles definately lessens the significance a bit.
About the percentage changes, that source you linked is great. I was doing the percentages by hand using the 1990 and 2000 populations from the census.gov homepage by typing in each city name. I just figured out I was making a small mistake sometimes but not all the time.
The correct method to use (this was without the aid of your handy link) was (2000pop - 1990pop/1990pop) * 100. What i was doing wrong sometimes was dividing by 2000pop instead. I'll fix my mistakes. Both of our sources are fine, I was just making unnecessary calculations leading to some errors. Thanks for pointing that out and keep up the good work. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 03:18, July 27, 2005 (UTC)

Chicagoland[edit]

I can understand the possible desire to change the wording, and I see that Porter County, Indiana, is still listed on the separate Chicagoland page, but I am curious about why you (a year ago) edited the mention of Chicagoland out of the Porter County page, with your summary seeming to indicate that Porter County is not part of Chicagoland. IanHistor 20:01, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

There is no standard when talking about the counties included in Chicagoland because Chicagoland is not a real place, just a conceptual name for the outlying communities of Chicago. Everyone has a different opinion when it comes to what consitutes inclusion into "Chicagoland". Talk to someone thirty years ago and they'll tell you that Chicagoland has five counties. Two years ago, the Chicagoland article listed one county (Lake) in Indiana as part of Chicagoland. Last year the article listed two counties in Indiana that were part of Chicagoland. This year it's five counties. Clearly as you can see, it's very debatable and technically you could call the entire midwest Chicagoland. For the sake of uniformity, and my own personal definition, I believe that only Lake county Indiana should be included. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 04:37, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Chicago neighborhoods[edit]

Very nice job on the chicago neighborhoods. Would it be at all possible to have a map of all the numbered neighborhoods together at the top of the article? I'm not sure if that is it all feasible, but if it is it would be very helpful. Thanks, and keep up the good work! -- BMIComp (talk, HOWS MY DRIVING) 20:41, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! When you refer to the map, are you talking about the community areas map, and are you talking about Chicago neighborhoods? If so, that's not a problem, it's easy to do. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 03:25, August 1, 2005 (UTC)


Oo64eva:

I noticed in the map of the West Ridge area of Chicago and others bordering it that the North Shore Channel is called the Chicago River in the maps. This is not accurate, The Channel flows into the Chicago River, but is not actually the River. Because I do not have Macromedia I am unable to change it.

Could it be changed?

Thanks

You appear to be correct. The change has been made, thanks. — oo64eva (Alex) (U | T | C) @ 10:54, 15 May 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I am researching the boundaries on Chicago Neighborhoods/Community areas. Specifically I'm looking at the "sides" (South Side, Central, Far North Side, etc.) and I was wondering how you developed the boundaries for the sides for this map, since you did the original version: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chicago_community_areas_map.svg.

If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Dethomas 21:47, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Maps outlining Chicago suburbs[edit]

Hi there - quick question about the Chicagoland suburb maps that you put together (which look great, by the way): is there an original layered image available that can be used with Photoshop? I do not have Fireworks and am looking to get something up for Mt. Prospect. If there's nothing available, do you think you might have some time to throw something up there when you get a chance? Either way, thanks! -- Tim D 20:09, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Avon.png)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Avon.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 21:37, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Barnesandnoble.gif[edit]

Image Copyright problem

This is an automated message from a robot. You have recently uploaded Image:Barnesandnoble.gif. The file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 14:04, 12 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. If you believe you received this message in error, please notify the bot's owner.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Mort Goldman.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Mort Goldman.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 15:59, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Lettucelogo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Lettucelogo.png. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

File:Johnharris.jpg needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Johnharris.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Oo64eva}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 00:32, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

File:Strikeitrich.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 05:04, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:US-IL-Chicagoland-Frankfort.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:US-IL-Chicagoland-Frankfort.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 00:02, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
