Unchanged Title of Comment[edit]

Copy this and the last line, place it below your entry, then change the title to something related to what you want to say. Then end your message with the text --~~~~ so I'll know who sent me the response.


Pointers[edit]

I reverted your copy and paste of Paul Simon. Page moves can should only be done using the "move this page" function on your left hand menu bar. Please also copy the redirect command to the summary field when making a redirect. --Jiang 22:54, 5 Jan 2004 (UTC)

In Use msg[edit]

The "In Use" msg you created is useful in concept, effective in implementation (i.e., eye-catching), and pleasant to look at. I guess that's a hat trick; bravo. --Jerzy 09:12, 2004 Jan 12 (UTC)

My Comment
I wish I could take credit for the 'revised edition'; I thought of the Inuse message because there were times when I was changing a page which required several minutes to do (for example, check out the List of television stations in USA by Call Sign and if I'm putting all of the entries for, say, California in from the current list by states, that's going to take a while. If someone else comes in and changes the list (for Colorado for example) while I'm doing an edit as well, then my work is wasted or at least I have to now go in and re-edit to include their changes, since the list is in alphabetical order. In this sort of circumstance I don't really want to put a few entries in, save it, then put more in, and so on, I'd prefer to put all of them in as one batch.
What someone else did was, they came along, rewrote the inuse message and inserted the banners. A distinct improvement to what I had done and a really great change. I wish I had thought of it.

[edit]

Could you make the background color (grey) around the corners of Image:Eisenhower-Interstate-200.PNG transparent? It might look a little nicer. :) --Spikey 17:45, 21 Jan 2004 (UTC)


inuse FUBAR?[edit]

Hi Paul, this is what I'm getting when using {{msg:inuse}} — looks like it got FUBAR:

inuse message result
(ignore border and background color, used for visual formatting)

{{inuse}}

This is what the wiki custom message should output:

inuse message wiki output
(ignore border and background color, used for visual formatting)
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" id="inuseMessage">
<tr>
<td>

<p class="messageHeader">Note</p>

<p class="messageText">This article is currently undergoing a major edit.</p>

<p class="messageText">As a courtesy, please do not make edits to this article
until this message is removed to avoid edit conflicts.</p>

</td>
</tr>
</table>

Where "edit conflicts" points to Wikipedia:Edit conflicts (I don't know how you code this).

In the standard Wikipedia skin, the message should look something like:

Note

This article is currently undergoing a major edit.

As a courtesy, please do not make edits to this article until this message is removed to avoid edit conflicts.


In order to do that, wikistandard.css should have the following styles added:

wikistandard.css styles
/* Custom messages */

/* inuse custom message */

#inuseMessage {
        background-color: #D2FFD2;
        border: medium dashed #FF0000;
        padding: .6em;
        width: 50%;
        position: relative;
        left: 25%; 
}

#inuseMessage p.messageHeader {
        text-transform: uppercase;
        font-weight: bold;
        text-align: center;
}

#inuseMessage p.messageText {
        font-size: smaller;
}

I guess you can put the custom messages stylesheets on a different file and make that wikistandard.css inherit them. I really don't know where this source is located, nor do I have the access to edit it. :p

Take care and thanks for your contributions,

Accounting/finance edits[edit]

Thanks for the additions to both the accounting and finance lists. However, since these are really accounting rather than finance topics, I will remove them from the finance list. mydogategodshat 04:29, 8 Feb 2004 (UTC)

License[edit]

Hi, can you give the exact license of Image:MD Map 200X150.jpg ? Is it public domain ? Thanks in advance Tipiac 09:58, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Image:Soft_drinks_800x600.jpg[edit]

Hi, did you take this picture? If not, can you tell us the source? anthony (see warning) 14:07, 8 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Yes, I did take the picture Rfc1394 16:51, 8 Aug 2004 (UTC) Thanks. anthony (see warning) 17:13, 8 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Category:Books by title[edit]

Hi, I'm having serious questions about the validity of this classification system. Why is this appropriate for categories rather than just list articles? Postdlf 08:14, 23 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Help Needed[edit]

Hi, you've contributed to the Interpersonal relationships page - could you please go over to Hugh Hefner where an edit war is in progress over the meaning and use of the word "mistress" and assist there? Thanks.

The Washington Post[edit]

See extensive discussion about the title in Talk:The Washington Post (march). As nearly as I can tell, to the extent that it is meaningful, the most correct title is The Washington Post, although it not infrequently rendered as The Washington Post March and Washington Post. If you have fresh material bearing on this question, please discuss it in Talk:The Washington Post (march). [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 13:57, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Image:Interstate 66 810x210 .jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Interstate 66 810x210 .jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much, Quadell (talk) (help)[[]] 00:00, Nov 15, 2004 (UTC)

Image:Watts Towers 241x323.PNG is also missing a tag, may I assume from the entry about your soft drink picture mentioned above that you are relasing all your pictures to the public domian?--nixie 23:04, 13 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Image copyrights[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Paper 450x450.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much, Edwin Stearns | Talk 20:58, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Ditto Image:I012.png and presumably that whole group of interstate highway signs need tags. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)


Image copyrights[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Onions 700x530.jpg, Image:Onions 350x250.jpg. I have tagged them as {{unverified}}, please add the appropriate copyright tags or they may be deleated.

Thousands of images have no copyright tags. You can help!

Duk 22:28, 18 Dec 2004 (UTC)

This has been corrected. Rfc1394 20:25, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Thank you for the quick response. I added the image tag {{PD-user|Rfc1394}} to your edit. (syntax for all copyright tags is at copyright tags). Duk 22:07, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)
