Your edits at Vehicle registration plates of Pennsylvania[edit]

You seem to be adding plates that don't exist to this article - if you are being reverted by mistake and these do indeed exist and merit inclusion in the article, please provide references so they can be verified. Otherwise, please leave them off. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 17:46, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Licence or License[edit]

If you take a look at License you will see that licence is an acceptable spelling and the common one used in Canada and can be confirmed here. Also please take a look at Wikipedia:Manual of Style#National varieties of English. Thanks. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 20:17, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Changing spelling. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 17:02, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. Stop changing the spelling variation. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 17:21, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia. Katieh5584 (talk) 17:25, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Vehicle registration plates of Nunavut shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you.

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

Editing problems[edit]

Do not call people vandals, see Wikipedia:Vandalism, as nobody, including you, is doing that. If instead of blindly reverting you looked at what I had done here you would have noticed that nothing was removed. All I did was change "Image:" to the more correct "File:", adjusted the section headers so the were standard and used the correct Canadian spelling for licence rather than the US license. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 00:34, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

...and I will re-emphasize WP:ENGVAR - Canadian spelling is different than American spelling, and we have a supporting policy surrounding it. Additional similar changes will result in a fresh block, no additional warnings. the panda ₯’ 09:58, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

License plate/Your image on commons[edit]

I nominated your image of the Alabama license plate for speedy deletion on commons and reverted the edit in which you added your image to the article Vehicle registration plates of Alabama as Alabama does not issue their license plates as Public Domain and commons does not allow Fair Use. --Milad A380 (talk) 19:58, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

In Wikipedia, we always answer where the discussion started, so I'll answer here. Please answer here too.

The State of Alabama holds the copyright on its license plates. I don't assume you are the State of Alabama. If you are the State of Alabama, you're right and I'm sorry.

I assume you don't know anything about copyright. if you did, you'd know that the creator always owns the copyright and decides what to publish. This is the State of Alabama. On the English Wikipedia, the image is allowed, as so-called "Fair Use" is allowed here. On Commons, Fair Use-images aren't allowed and have to be deleted. It seems like I know the american law better than you, because even your american law does not govern anything outside the U.S.A, as this would be overruled by international law, for example the The Hague Invasion Act is incompatible with international law.

As you see, I even know American law better than you while I'm not an american citizen (but I don't think that citizenship matters here anyway).

I also do not "hate" the USA, if i did i wouldn't go there (but I did this summer).

Anyway, american law has to be used in this case, as the origin of the picture and the servers of the Wikimedia Foundation are in the USA. And American law says that:

  • Alabama owns the copyright
  • Alabama decides where to upload images showing their license plates.
  • This means the picture can't be uploaded on Wikimedia Commons, as their rules prohibit copyrighted images
  • Because of Fair Use it can be uploaded on the English Wikipedia, but not on Commons.

Stop being obtuse[edit]

@PAPL8S: You have already been blocked once to throttle your abuse, after you couldn't take multiple hints. Actually learn copyright and Wikipedia rules before you get cocky and use the word "obtuse" for other people, like you did with this unsigned insult. Or at least learn what "obtuse" is. To wit:

  1. Obtuse is repeatedly uploading the same images after you have been told by multiple people that those specific images are copyright violations. Doing this is likely to get you blocked again.
  2. Obtuse is insulting users over things you've already been told you're wrong about. And you've been wrong a lot. Everyone keeps telling you you're wrong, and nobody else is telling you that you're right. That should be a clue.
  3. Obtuse is top-posting on people's user talk pages, which you've also done at least twice. Didn't you notice that nobody else is doing that? (Obtuse is also ignoring everything around your own typing.)
  4. Obtuse is jingoism towards users, telling them that their insights are stupider than your emissions purely because they're not American. I'm not going to bother engaging in an argument about what you call this: Whatever you think it is, it will get you blocked on Wikipedia again very quickly. Never do it again.
  5. Especially obtuse would be doing all four of these things simultaneously, like you did to Milad A380 (talk · contribs) with this nastiness. If that comment by itself doesn't get you blocked (again), it's only by grace, not because you didn't earn it.

Either learn and respect that photographs of other works still have the others' copyrights, and learn from and respect other users and be civil, or take your show somewhere else. Not being here to build an encyclopedia is grounds for being blocked. --Closeapple (talk) 00:59, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
