File source problem with File:Yang Zhen Duo.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Yang Zhen Duo.jpg. 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, 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.

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 21:01, 14 January 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stifle (talk) 21:01, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Userbox frustration[edit]

Yes, I am sure this is frustrating; I had this problem once too. It appears that a bot (User:BJBot to be exact) is coming to these pages and canceling out the image (see here and here). It is doing this because the images violate WP:NFCC#9 which states that "Non-free content is allowed only in articles". Basically, those three userboxes use images that are only meant for articles, so the bot automatically removes them. The only options are replace the images with free ones, or just substitute the images for text. Let me know if you have more questions. By the way, your user page is looking great!

Invitation to Meetup/Seattle6, a focus group[edit]

Hello. I'm part of a research group at the University of Washington (Seattle campus), and my group is reaching out to Wikipedians in the Puget Sound area. We're hosting a focus group designed to gather information on what Wikipedians would like to know about each other when interacting on Wikipedia. Our end goal is to create an embedded application that helps people quickly know more about others' history and activity on Wikipedia, and we feel our design will be much more useful if it's based on insights of users like you.

I'm hoping that the chance to help out local researchers, to engage in lively face-to-face discussion with other Seattle Wikipedians, and to contribute to Wikipedia in a new way will entice you to join us. The session lasts 2 hours and snacks are provided. Sessions will be held on UW Seattle campus - directions will be sent after registration. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated!

Willing and able to help us out? RSVP here. Want to know more? Visit our user talk page . Please help us contact other local Wikipedians, too! Commprac01 (talk) 00:29, 15 March 2009 (UTC)


Greetings Panicpgh! I was just going to speedy delete a new article by User talk:Cleobolus but a sixth sense told me to check him/her out first and I saw that you have previously helped this editor out. Could you go through his/her contributions and try to wikify them - I can't because I don't know anything about the subject, but I'll put an underconstruction tag to try to give you time. Good luck! --Technopat (talk) 22:35, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I'm taking your word for it that they are notable 'cos I'm no judge, but if I can give you a hand with anything, let me know. Cheers!--Technopat (talk) 22:47, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
I've done a bit of cleaning-up but that's as far as I can go. I kinda like his/her style, but s/he needs to have an eye kept on him/her! --Technopat (talk) 23:41, 27 August 2009 (UTC)


Sorry about that one, I saw you hide the MA nav template & went ot undo it, but accidental reversed all of you edits, when I saw the diff I took it back your version with the template in place. Again, sorry for any confusion --Natet/c 09:26, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

May 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Tai chi chuan, but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses novel, unpublished syntheses of previously published material. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. -- RP459 Talk/Contributions 19:16, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out that "original research" is not allowed in Wikipedia. However I do have communication from the family itself, official documentation that I can produce. If that is not reliable documentation, I don't know what is. So how do I refer to communications by the family that will not be considered unreliable? Bruno talk
I am honestly not sure, WP:NOR and the noticeboard at Wikipedia:No_original_research/noticeboard would be a better place to ask... -- RP459 Talk/Contributions 19:35, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
So if you are not sure, why then did you revert my edits? Wouldn't notifying me that this is in doubt and asking the question yourself in the noticeboard have been a more logical course of action?Bruno talk
I am sure that what you added violates WP:NOR. What I am unsure about is if it is possible to add it to Wikipedia in a fashion that is allowable. My gut tells me from what I do know is that it cannot be added in any fashion, but I pointed you in the direction that I did so that you can get another more informed opinion. -- RP459 Talk/Contributions 21:21, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Another editor posted this [1] does that clear up the situation? -- RP459 Talk/Contributions 00:32, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Pending changes/Straw poll on interim usage[edit]

Hi. As you recently commented in the straw poll regarding the ongoing usage and trial of Pending changes, this is to notify you that there is an interim straw poll with regard to keeping the tool switched on or switching it off while improvements are worked on and due for release on November 9, 2010. This new poll is only in regard to this issue and sets no precedent for any future usage. Your input on this issue is greatly appreciated. Off2riorob (talk) 23:44, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Pittsburgh event for Wikipedia's tenth anniversary[edit]

Hi! Since you have a connection to Pittsburgh, I wanted to invite you to the Wikipedia Tenth Anniversary celebrations we're having in Pittsburgh on Saturday, January 15. During the daytime, we're going to be having a photo contribution drive where anyone can bring in their digital photos or prints and Wikipedians will teach people how to upload them and add them to articles, and maybe introduction to Wikipedia workshops as well. Then in the evening, we'll have fun at the Carson City Saloon. There will be free Wikipedia t-shirts and other goodies, as well. See the Pittsburgh meetup page for more details. I hope to see you there!--ragesoss (talk) 15:55, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 16-form Yang family tai chi chuan[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article 16-form Yang family tai chi chuan has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:14, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop at CMU (Aug 15)[edit]

Since you are one of the editors in the Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Carnegie Mellon University, I'd like to invite you to the Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop that will take place at CMU on Aug 15 (this workshop is open to general public, and is a joint imitative of CMU and Pitt). There will be another workshop held at Pitt in the Fall as well. It will cover how to include Wikipedia in one's course (WP:SUP) and also how to become a Wikipedia:Campus Ambassadors. Pennsylvania has currently only one ambassador (myself) and it would be great if we could recruit at least several more. Ambassadors help course instructors, showing them how Wikipedia works, and interact with students. Many current ambassadors come from the body of students, faculty and university staff; it is a fun adventure, and adds to one resume/CV, to boot :) If it sounds interesting, feel free to ask me any questions, or to come to the workshop. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 20:19, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Dear Panicpgh,

Hope you are doing well. You were so kind to review my previous article on Ma Gui, and I was writing to see if you would be interested in taking a look at the new one I just wrote on one of Ma Gui's students, Liu Wanchuan:

I appreciate any input you may be able to provide, thank you again so much for your help.

Article on Fa Jin[edit]

Wow I see what you mean. What we are seeing is a single topic user that probably will not be convinced of the error of his ways. I will do one more revision just to set precedence but then I would just let it be for a couple of days - patience is a virtue. Hopefully he will loose interest. I have left a message on his talk page and if he keeps it up I'll ask an actual Admin to take a look.Peter Rehse (talk) 22:06, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Kashaka may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • two small [[gourd]]s filled with beans (essentially, two small [[maracas]]) connected by a string.) One gourd is held in the hand and the other is quickly swung from side to side around the hand,

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 14:19, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
