Welcome!

Hello, Quintin3265, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, please be sure to sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, or three tildes (~~~) for just your name. If you have any questions, you can post to the help desk or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! --Flockmeal 05:08, Dec 11, 2004 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

Hey, I'd like to welcome you again to Wikipedia. I see that you have decided to help with tagging articles for deletion. That's good news, since we need help is this area, and I encourage you to keep it up. However, I would like to direct your attention to this item in the WP:CSD:

An article about a real person that does not assert that person's importance or significance. If the assertion is disputed or controversial, it should be taken to VFD instead. For details, see Wikipedia:Deletion of vanity articles.

Unfortunately, this means that we sysops cannot speedy delete an article if there is a claim to notability. Even patently false claims are sent to VfD. Please keep this in mind, and happy tagging! --Ryan Delaney talk 13:39, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

Image:Spanier.jpg[edit]

This image you uploaded doesn't provide sufficent source or license information. If you hold the copyright please indicate so! We're in the process of deleting nosource images, so if you get this notice too late, and it really was your image to upload (or you can get it under a sufficently free license) please reupload it with the correct tagging. Let me know if you need help. --Gmaxwell 11:30, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

WP:CP[edit]

Hi, you've reported copyright infringements to WP:CP in the last week, a new measure was recently passed to allow the speedy deltion of new pages that are cut and paste copyvios. Please follow these instructions if you come across this type of copyvio. Thanks. --nixie 23:57, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

Blatant copyright infringements may now be "speedied"

If an article and all its revisions are unquestionably copied from the website of a commercial content provider and there is no assertion of permission, ownership or fair use and none seems likely, and the article is less than 48 hours old, it may be speedily deleted. See CSD A8 for full conditions.

After notifying the uploading editor by using wording similar to:

{{nothanks-sd|pg=page name|url=url of source}} -- ~~~~

Blank the page and replace the text with

{{db-copyvio|url=url of source}}

to the article in question, leaving the content visible. An administrator will examine the article and decide whether to speedily delete it or not.

Image source/licensing for Image:Blackwell.jpg[edit]

The image you uploaded, Image:Blackwell.jpg, has no no source information. The image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, ie in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use. Unless the copyright status is provided, the image will be marked for deletion on 24 October 2005.

This message notification has been automatically sent by NotificationBot managed and run by AllyUnion. Please leave comments regarding bot operations at AllyUnion's talk page. Please direct all comments regarding licensing information at Wikipedia talk:Images for deletion. --NotificationBot 12:33, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

SHC[edit]

Hi Quintin; just saw your edit to SHC that first year students get $3500 -- according to [1], it's actually $2500. Do you have a source for the $3500 scholarship? --Spangineer (háblame) 21:37, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Those cheapskates! They've only been giving me $2500, but then, I started in 2002. But it's extremely weird that they haven't updated any of their websites ([2], [3], and that brochure all say $2500). Maybe I'll drop in and ask someone there what the deal is. --Spangineer (háblame) 03:08, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

PSU wikiproject[edit]

Hi Quintin, just thought I'd let you know that I've restarted the Penn State WikiProject. If you see a PSU article that needs improvement or would like to help out improving Wikipedia's articles on Penn State, feel free to drop in! —Spangineer[es] (háblame) 05:16, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Ha, I just noticed that you already found it. What license are you using for all those pictures? Are they all GFDL? If so, we can upload them to the commons and then people on other language wikipedias can use them also. —Spangineer[es] (háblame) 05:23, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
I've just uploaded one of your Beaver Stadium pictures (after cropping out that guy's head) to Wikimedia Commons. They accept free license images (GFDL, PD, CC-BY-SA, etc.) and then make it possible for all the wikipedias to use them. It's at Image:Beaver_Stadium_inside.jpg. —Spangineer[es] (háblame) 21:41, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the homecoming parade. It should probably be incorporated into another article, because probably every university in the country has a homecoming parade similar to the one at PSU. That is to say, there probably isn't very much that's special about it. However, it might make sense to put a mention of it in the main PSU article or in an article covering the relationship between University Park and State College or the like. We just need to proceed with a bit of caution—the people who hang out at WP:AFD wouldn't appreciate it if we created an article for every building on campus, or on every faculty member, or on every event that Penn State students participate in. But mentioning the homecoming parade or the USG elections or the Mifflin streak or whatever in a more general article would be fine. —Spangineer[es] (háblame) 22:15, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Ross Jeffries[edit]

I must disagree with your removal of the edit to Ross Jeffries, speed seduction is not a medical progam, and Ross is not a licensed doctor. Masssiveego 21:52, 18 April 2006 (UTC)


Image:Symbol keep vote.svg[edit]

Hello. I noticed that you've used the "vote" symbol on AfD. Could I persuade you to not do that? While it often looks like a vote, it's not. Emphasising the binary/counting nature makes the discussion appear less important, when in fact it's the whole point. Thanks.

Unspecified source for Image:KingOfPrussia.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:KingOfPrussia.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 tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. 193.248.39.109 22:28, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading Image:Deangelo.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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 02:39, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Deangelo.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Deangelo.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Polly (Parrot) 23:59, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Graham Spanier[edit]

I just wanted to let you know the proper procedure to follow after page move vandalism for the future, as your attempt to undo the damage actually made it worse. When a page is moved, it moves all the history along with it, so by copy/pasting the article back over the redirect, it gets rid of all the history, and also makes it so so someone is no longer able to simply click "rollback" to revert the vandalism, as you had an intervening edit. We want the history to be preserved, so tagging the article with the vandalized name as speedy would have actually deleted all the history. The proper procedure would have been to simply rollback the page move, and tag the vandalism page name (which would be a redirect at this time) for speedy. It is complicated to follow, but I wanted to let you know in case you encounter such a situation again. Thanks, VegaDark (talk) 15:10, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Deangelo.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Hi Quintin3265!
We thank you for uploading Image:Deangelo.jpg, but there is a problem. Your image is currently missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. Unless you can help by adding a copyright tag, it may be deleted by an Administrator. If you know this information, then we urge you to add a copyright tag to the image description page. We apologize for this, but all images must confirm to policy on Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks so much for your cooperation.

File:Pemigewassett covered bridge.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Pemigewassett covered bridge.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 23:13, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

File:Beaver Stadium (2006).jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Beaver Stadium (2006).jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Quintin3265}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:10, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:JordanCenter 2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:JordanCenter 2.jpg. 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. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 06:48, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

License tagging for File:RodneyErickson.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:RodneyErickson.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 20:23, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
