Sea Shepherd images[edit]

Hi, I undid one of your recent addition of an image to the article on Paul Watson. As you can see on the description page, the image is tagged for deletion because it is a copyright violation. There are a lot of other Sea Shepherd images which are also on commons and are tagged to be deleted, so just make sure you look at the description first to be sure the images are not copyright violations. Thanks, Terrillja talk 16:02, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Oh, thanks! I didn't notice that :) Cheers. Pikolas (talk) 14:35, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

It is a weird situation from my understanding. Basically, IMDB is typically good as in general info is usually OK but there is some user submitted content. SSCS (the other source) on the other hand is a primary source that links to should be limited since they are exceptionally promotional and admittedly not accurate. The edit also appeared to give it some prominence weight wise (due to the rest of the section being not filled in). The revert may have been a little knee jerky on my end. I actually was thinking about ways to incorporate your edit while poking around other pages when you messaged. Since I haven't seen the documentary, is it about Watson or is it about SSCS? I feel like we need to be extra careful with how it is done so it doesn't pop out as a "Hey, go look at this!". Also want to make sure it is on the right page.Cptnono (talk) 12:47, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I am so on the fence about it that I won't revert if you stick it back in. Remove the SSCS link though. It might be better in the SSCS article but need to look into it more. It could also be a concern with the section in general (not really good prose right now) and not the content itself.Cptnono (talk) 13:45, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Go for it. The primary source you provided might be unduly self serving but it is much better then the SSCS site. It also seems t be about Watson more than SSCS. Independent coverage would be preferred (we need to find some sooner or later) but put it back in if there is a way to do it (notability impacts article creation not content if anyone else gives you a hard time). Have to go watch it since the British part isn't mentioned on Wikipedia. Cptnono (talk) 14:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Just a random thought. On one of the pages it mentions that he stopped sealing in the British Isles. I never heard of that so am just wondering what it is about. I'll do some googling and see what is out there.Cptnono (talk) 15:01, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
We actually built a pretty comprehensive history. It just got ripped out since it was too big and moved to a new specific page for the different operations since it was so bloated (Sea Shepherd Conservation Society operations). A summary is still needed at the main SSCS page but I was waiting for all of the hub bub around the Ady Gil to die down and got sidetracked on local sports. For the sake of transparency, I am not a fan of the group. If you see nay neutrality issues or anything lacking feel free to chime in.Cptnono (talk) 15:12, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Kaŝtankolora pasero on the Esperanto Wikipedia[edit]

Can you check the caption for the image of a nest at eo:Kaŝtankolora pasero? It should say that they are Grey-headed Social-weaver nests, like Chestnut Sparrow, but I don't think it does. (I found your page at the history page for the Esperanto Wikipedia's sparrow article). —innotata 13:09, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Does this clear it up: Can you check the caption for the image of a nest? It should say that it is not a nest of a Chestnut Sparrow, but a nest of a different bird that sparrows sometimes use. —innotata 17:43, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for this "Territorial nationalism" picture! I also started the article Territorial nationalism a few months ago but never found the time to expand it... Feel free to ad pictures and/or text to that article too. "Territorial nationalism" is a underlighted subject which deserves more study. — Mariah-Yulia • Talk to me! 15:04, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Esperanto[edit]

Sorry, Portuguese does not have 5 vowels. — kwami (talk) 20:41, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, we sometimes learn the same thing about English, though generally we learn that there are "long" and "short" a, e, i, o, oo, u, which isn't exactly right either. People tend to think of vowels as being letters rather than sounds. — kwami (talk) 20:49, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Pikolas. you've placed a NPOV-tag in the D. T. Suzuki article, but without an explanation at Talk:D. T. Suzuki. Could you give your point of view there? Joshua Jonathan (talk) 08:20, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Borgesian project (your question)[edit]

Hi! because... The seemingly boundless nature of Wikipedia is somehow amazing. Not just the number of articles, which could perhaps reach a limit: User:Emijrp/All human knowledge, but also the number of versions each article can have. In his novels, Borges sometimes explored similar ideas... see for example The Library of Babel and Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, both published in Ficciones. --Edcolins (talk) 20:48, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 👾[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on 👾, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. -- Tavix (talk) 17:33, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Please avoid changing "Trump" to "Drumpf"[edit]

Hi Pikolas. In one of your recent edits, you changed the word "Trump" to "Drumpf". I assume that this was unintentional and caused by having the Drumpfinator extension enabled. To avoid this kind of mistake in the future, please disable the extension before editing articles that mention Trump. Thank you. —Granger (talk · contribs) 16:55, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Your deletion[edit]

As a new user, I am surprised you deleted a perfectly valid image for the article. I was not aware that the article had too many pictures according to the Wikipedia rules. At first sight it looked like an arbitrary decision according to your personal preferences. I wish in cases like this, that a consensus were used instead. At any rate, I don't want at this point in my early contributions, to change already established regulations. GinnevraDubois (talk) 20:08, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

@GinnevraDubois: Hi Ginnevra. Sorry if my reversion seemed a bit harsh, and welcome to Wikipedia :) It looked a little out of place there, and while I agree that a picture of Zamenhof would be nice for the article, in my opinion it'd make the article a bit crowded with pics. Not sure if there is any rule about that, it's more of an aesthetics issue. ~nmaia d 20:16, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

LibertyBSD[edit]

I saw your edit on Trisquel, a free OS. Can you please help me keep LibertyBSD? It is the only free BSD variant. --Gstree (talk) 05:19, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks for reaching out. As much as I like LibertyBSD, I think it's still too young to have a Wikipedia article on it, mostly due to the scarcity of independent sources covering its existence. So it's going to be deleted, at least for now, but that can change in the future :) ~nmaia d 12:55, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

UK copyright expiry[edit]

Thank you for your changes to Norman Heathcote and for transferring and categorising the various associated files. I'd forgotten about them falling out of copyright and I see what you have done is just what was needed. Years ago some files I uploaded to enwp were transferred to Commons in a highly unsatisfactory manner so it is good that our standards have improved (or maybe it is just that someone else did the old transfers!). Best wishes. Thincat (talk) 13:45, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliment! I use CommonsHelper, and another bot cleans up the uploaded file. Cheers! ~nmaia d 14:31, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
