Image Tagging Image:Edney.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Edney.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. 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 qualifies as fair use, consider reading 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, consider checking 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Image legality questions page. Thank you. Shyam (T/C) 20:06, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:The Greatest Show on Turf helmet rightface.png. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:The Greatest Show on Turf helmet rightface.PNG. The copy called Image:The Greatest Show on Turf helmet rightface.PNG has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account. Staeckerbot 01:45, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:GSOThelmet.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:GSOThelmet.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 02:06, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Article about yourself[edit]

Hi - I don't exactly know who you are, but given your user name and that you recently created Peter Ruocco, I have a hunch. I suggest you read WP:AUTO, and perhaps WP:COI. Contributions unrelated to ourself are quite welcome. Contributions about yourself less so. -- Rick Block (talk) 03:28, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Rick...[edit]

The article is not about me. He's my uncle and godfather, and he's been meaning to write a page for a while. If you want me to edit it so that it is more neutral, then I will, but I did not create a page for myself. That is what my user page is for...and I'm taking full advantage of that. I don't blame you for thinking it is me....we have the same name (different middle name, he's 20-something years older than me)...but it is not me.

The only point is that when writing about yourself or someone very close to you it's extremely difficult (but not impossible) to adhere to WP:NPOV and WP:V. Your own knowledge of the subject often interferes - things you perfectly well know to be true might not be published anywhere, and you probably have a biased opinion. To some extent it's a little late (you have already created this article), but I'd suggest you mostly try to ignore it. If you continue to edit this article please try to scrupulously adhere to WP:V and never add anything that you "just know". Published, referenced facts are fine, but before adding anything you know first hand it would be good to make sure it's published somewhere (e.g. where his parents live, and his siblings' names - I'm guessing you just know these things, and that they aren't published anywhere). -- Rick Block (talk) 04:34, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Rick, I know what you mean. Do you think I should edit it to make it a little more neutral and unbiased? I know he wants a wiki page, so I'll do whatever as long as it doesn't get taken down. Or, on the other hand, do you think I should stop editing it altogether?
I think it reads fairly neutral, but most of the content is unsourced (the one reference is to lostpedia, which shouldn't be used as a reference per Wikipedia:Reliable sources). It would be fine if you want to remove unsourced material. Whether it gets taken down is an entirely separate matter, depending on whether anyone thinks he does not meet the guideline at Wikipedia:Notability (people) and nominates the article for deletion (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion). The best way to ensure the article is not deleted is to include references to multiple, independent, reliable sources. BTW - you can sign and date comments on talk pages (like this one) using four tildes (~~~~). -- Rick Block (talk) 13:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
