Unspecified source for Image:Robert anton wilson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Robert anton wilson.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify 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 file 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 meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jkelly 00:55, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

B-2 image on United States[edit]

Hi Primal chaos! I was curious as to why you removed the B-2 image from the US article; I thought it fit in well. Feel free to respond on my talk page. Thanks! | AndonicO Talk | Sign Here 01:51, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Oh, okay. Thanks for explaining. | AndonicO Talk | Sign Here 02:03, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Thanks for your message, but they deleted the article anyway, even though it could have been "no consensus". It is difficult for me to keep my cool when people who themselves have strong POVs are attacking me for the same thing. Thats frustrating. Look at the bunch of articles on Islam, for example - why aren't these same people screaming about the anti-Islam POV and unreliable sources there?? You see this is what it comes down to, delete this, delete that. It's their fear and their hatred. Instead of adding a counter POV, they only know how to delete and attack and defame. Is unfortunate that Wikipedia works better in theory than in practice, but this is the human nature. Khodavand 05:45, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Democratic Party[edit]

Trying for a NPOV on the Democratic Party article. Center-Left should describe Democrats and Center-Right Republicans. Which party is more "Centrist" is a POV I think. Oleanna1104 01:32, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanx for adding that citation about Beautiful Day. Interesting:) Oleanna1104 22:52, 18 March 2007 (UTC)


Response to Primalchaos concerning use of the phrase "also known as The Democrat Party". I understand what you are saying, but is WIKI about accuracy or about political correctness? Regardless of the positive or negative connotation some choose to place on the noun 'Democrat' or the adjective 'Democratic', the issue here is not one of spin. The specific issue is whether the 'subject' of the Wiki article, the American political party commonly known as 'The Democratic Party' is 'also known as' -- or known by -- other words. And also whether those words are ones commonly applied to the subject, and commonly understood to mean the subject. If the answer is yes, then incorporating the words that the subject is 'also known as' is a valid and appropriate usage, and that includes whether or not one chooses to interpret those 'other words' in positive or negative light. I will also post this message on the article's discussion page. Fungible 09:40, 05 January 2008 (UTC)

300 Edits[edit]

You need to reference your contributions to Wikipedia. Your recent additions tot he 300 article are very likely going to be reverted by the first editor that comes along. Considering how many people are reading too much into the movie as it is, the only material that will be allowed to remain is that which is cited from a reliable source. If you cannot cite your addition, you would be doing everyone a service by removing it yourself until you can cite the information properly.Arcayne 14:11, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Not toput words into Bignole's mouth, but I think he's referring to the fact that, while the info you cited is solid stuff, its connection to the film (ie, the perception that Thermoplylae is the turning point in the war and not Salamis) needs to be made by someone more authoritative (referentially-speaking) than yourself - someone whose opinion can be cited. I know you are making good faith edits, and I don't want you to lose heart that your edits aren't being appreciated. Trust me, they are. :)
Perhaps you can find a source that ties the two together?Arcayne 15:15, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Just added it.--Primal Chaos 15:16, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Shotguns[edit]

Hello, the term "Zombie Wacker" is used as slang for shotgun. As it is slang, I am having difficulty finding an academic citation. As you can see at the forums at Shotgun World the term "Zombie Wacker" or "Zombie ammo" etc. is common.BirdHunters 15:23, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

If you can find a more scholarly source and a better source of 'real' slang rather than just Internet forums, put it up there. Shotty and Pump, for instance, are very widespread and can be found in slang dictionaries compared to the other.--Primal Chaos 16:47, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:OCP Robocop.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:OCP Robocop.jpg. 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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.

Democratic Party (United States) Introduction[edit]

Congratulations on finding such a good source for this edit; hopefully this will solve the problem, and will last longer than the first edit I made to the introduction, which struck a similar note.

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.

File permission problem with File:Lorax rover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Lorax rover.jpg, which you've sourced to http://www.frc.ri.cmu.edu/projects/lorax/. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

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:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too.

Non-free rationale for File:Space rogue cover.jpg[edit]

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
