That is correct, this is my article posted on Yinsurgent.

I, Hal Smith, am the author of this article, 1877 Shamokin Uprising, and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later."

If you give me your email, I can gladly send you proof that I am the article's author and wish that you place it on your site.

Thanks. Rakovsky (talk) 04:19, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of 1877 Shamokin Uprising[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on 1877 Shamokin Uprising requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

re: Uprising[edit]

I'm sorry about the confusion with the copyvio tags, I wasn't ware you had licensed the text for Wikipedia. Just a tip though, if you want to release your article under the GFDL, it might also be a good idea (although of course not mandatory) to put a notice to that affect in the original article (not the Wikipedia page) itself.
