More photos for aces[edit]

{{PD-SDASM}} Hello,

For whatever obscure whim, I returned to Flickr and found another bunch of World War I pilots. If you would care to insert these into articles, here's the list:

Fritz Beckhardt = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091917878/in/photostream/

Josef Mai = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091917544/in/photostream/

Heinrich Kroll = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911761/in/photostream/

Oskar Hennrich = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911397/in/photostream/ Karl Bolle = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911101/in/photostream/

Otto Schmidt = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911075/in/photostream/

Erik Thomas = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091916220/in/photostream/

Adolf von Tutschek = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091910225/in/photostream/

Otto Parschau = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091910211/in/photostream/

Friedrich von Roeth = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091915434/in/photostream/

Hans Muller (later Hans Garrelt) = http://www.theaerodrome.com/aces/germany/muller1.php

Rudolf Berthold = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091913128/in/photostream/

Hans Berr = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907755/in/photostream/

Hans von Adam = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907583/in/photostream/

Hans-Joachim Buddecke (in Ottoman uniform) = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907541/in/photostream/

Friedrich Manschott = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912652/in/photostream/

Karl Allmenroeder = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912566/in/photostream/

Karl Thom = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907169/in/photostream/

Gustav Leffers = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912402/in/photostream/

Max Ritter von Mueller = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907019/in/photostream/

Incidentally, Beckhardt's photo was misidentified as Hermann Gilly, so I removed it from the Gilly article. However, as Gilly never flew a Siemens-Schuckert D.IIInor had a personal insignia of a swastika, it is obviously a (poor) photo of Beckhardt.

I hope you will post these, as I seem to be moderately hopeless at the task.

Dormer[edit]

You're not worth the time and effort to war with over the retard box you are so eager to patronise our readers with, so you can keep it - the article's shit anyway. The edit summary you gave with regards to "unsourced information" relates to the body of the article. Do please try and read the reverts before you leave such a cock-sure edit summary. I won't respond, just FYI. CassiantoTalk 14:38, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Your recent edits to Henrietta Lacks[edit]

The source uses all caps as its title conventions: 1997 Congressional Record remarks of Representative Ehrlich. With the ICTR reference (The Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research), that source also uses all caps for its article's titles. In both cases, even though Wikipedia uses very specific (and different) title conventions, it would seem to me that the original title as it stands in the Congressional Record and at the ICTR website should be preserved within the references here on Wikipedia. Shearonink (talk) 18:44, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

It does look like shouting, however. Even the New York Times reduces their old-timey ALL CAPS headlines to the title case when they transcribe them into their text archive. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 18:51, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I don't disagree that it does look somewhat "shouty" but I think it is a good practice to try to be very scrupulous about preserving the exact nature of references' information, even down to the punctuation or grammar usage in "cite web" titles. Is there anything within the cite templates (like some sort coding "[sic]"...) that would designate the caps as being the way the title is written in the original? In my general Wikipedia editing I am very wary of altering anything about a reference, even the ALL CAPS of a newspaper headline or the title conventions that the Congressional Record uses. I think that part of our mandate as editors is to preserve the record of events as they happened, to preserve the historicity of contemporary sources. For instance, Ehrlich's 1979 remarks (or speech/insert into Congress' records) is the earliest mention about Henrietta Lacks from a high-level governmental official that I have seen - I think it is important to preserve them within Wikipedia's pages as they appear in the official US Government records.

Thanks for the noticeboard[edit]

Good evening, just wanted to pop by and say thank you for the work you did to try and protect that sandbox page the other day. Even though it is now deleted from WP (and will be more inconvenient for me to access offline,) I'm glad I didn't have to go through anything worse to get my local copy established. And you helped give me the time to do that. Much appreciation, LaughingVulcan Grok Page! 23:46, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Instead of solving the problem of incivility by cautioning the abuser, they try to erase the evidence of it, and harass the abused. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:58, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Template instructions[edit]

The documentation of a particular template applies to implementations of that template - it does not apply to instances of other templates. They are not broad guidelines, they're instructions regarding the specific template. You can't enforce the documentation of one template on articles using another. Nikkimaria (talk) 01:25, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

The field name is the same, alma_mater is singular, it means nourishing mother. The field was copied from the person infobox, the discussion is there, no need to have same discussion at the 35 biographical infobox templates. You are aware of the discussion, you participated in it. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:28, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Whether the field name is the same or not, documentation is specific to a template, not to a field across templates; similarly, discussion at one specific template doesn't automatically apply to other templates. {{infobox gem}} has a |weight= with documentation and previous discussion about how to use it, should we use those same instructions for |weight= at {{infobox officeholder}}? Of course not. Nikkimaria (talk) 01:33, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Take it to the talk page and gain consensus please. These are all biographical templates that use the same standard fields. Alma_mater still has the same meaning no matter where used, and is still singular. Work to gain consensus to change it to Alma_maters like was done for spouse(s). --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:36, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
You would need to get consensus that documentation on one template applies to different templates, because that is not current practice. See WP:TDOC. The documentation of {{infobox person}} applies only to {{infobox person}} according to our standard usage. The onus is on you to get consensus to do otherwise, and until you do you can't impose the documentation of {{infobox person}} on articles that use other templates. Nikkimaria (talk) 01:43, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
  • The concept that a template's documentation applies to that template only is already supported by consensus, as demonstrated by the page linked above and by current practice. If you think it should be otherwise, you would need to demonstrate that consensus had changed. Nikkimaria (talk) 12:44, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

On another point: if you make an edit to the article and your edit is reverted, you're also the one who need to take it to the talk page, rather than simply restoring your edit. "I think I'm right" isn't an edit-warring exemption nor is there an overriding policy like BURDEN or BLP in play here, and the status quo is assumed to have consensus until a new discussion takes place. Nikkimaria (talk) 12:49, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

You are 100% wrong per MOS:INFOBOX § Consistency between infoboxes. Cheers. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 14:50, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
(a) No, if you actually read that section, it doesn't say anything about instructions applying across templates, but rather only that names should be the same. (b) That is irrelevant to the point about edit-warring - even if you were 100% correct about template instructions, edits that do things like add high schools just for the sake of changing a parameter name still need to be discussed where someone objects. Nikkimaria (talk)

Join us for a full Saturday of social Wikipedia editing at the Museum of Modern Art (drop-in any time!), during which we will create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of Latin American artists.

The WikiArte (Wiki Arte y Cultura Latinoamerica) edit-a-thon is a global campaign to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Latin American arts and culture and to counter geocultural systemic bias on Wikipedia.

Featuring an opening Artists' Panel at 10am, with Sol Aramendi, Sharon Lee De La Cruz, and Marisa Morán Jahn, to be moderated by Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, curator at El Museo del Barrio.

The Museum of Modern Art and Fundacion Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros are uniting with international allies to focus on the lives and works of Latin American artists, architects and designers. With keystone events scheduled for October 22 in New York City and other cities throughout the month (Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Caracas, & others), the campaign aims to further similar goals to Art+Feminism.

All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. Introductory training on the basics of Wikipedia editing will be given throughout the edit-a-thon. Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will have library resources, WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand.

10:00am - 6:00pm at The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Education and Research Building at MoMA, 4 West 54th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue)
Please note that this entrance is one block north of the main 53rd Street entrance, closer to 5th Avenue

Hoeven et al[edit]

This is the same fight that led to Clinton just saying Yale University instead of Yale Law. You WPLDONTLIKEIT and are pretending this is a helpful for readers. If they need to click the link to find out this is just an endowed component of a university, it's not helpful. When I used to link these as [[Kellogg School of Management|Northwestern University]] it was argued that this was faulty under WP:EGG. Ordinary people know Northwestern, not Kellogg. Therequiembellishere (talk) 23:38, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

I can't read minds, how do you know what the reader wants? We have blue links for that, when they do not know, they click. Why not add the University to the alma_mater field since that would be correct? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:55, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
I don't think this is much of a stretch to imagine. Why not just make it easier and link to Northwestern since it's still correct? Both fields for what is essentially the same info is overkill and sort of crufty, IMO. Not all college-level university divisions have specific articles, nor should there be an expectation for every en-experted casual reader to know to connect them together. Give the basic info in the infobox (university, degree) and let the article give the full info. For example, something like "Georgetown University (MA)" in the infobox and "She graduated with a Master of Arts in International Affairs with a concentration in International Organizations from the (Edmund A.) Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University." Therequiembellishere (talk) 00:02, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

On Saturday December 3, 2016, in conjunction with a global campaign, the Guggenheim will host its fifth Wikipedia edit-a-thon—or, #guggathon—to enhance Wikipedia's coverage of modern and contemporary artists from Greater China. The event will cap off Wikipedia Asian Month, an online campaign dedicated to augmenting Asian content on Wikipedia throughout November.

New and experienced editors are welcome. The event will include a training session for participants who are new to Wikipedia, and Wikipedia specialists will be on hand to provide basic instruction and editing support. Editors are invited to view the exhibition Tales of Our Time following the event.

The Guggenheim aims to raise awareness of the artists featured in the Tales of Our Time exhibition supported by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative, and build on the model of campaigns like the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Women in Architecture, Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa, and Art+Feminism.

  • Enter at the 88th Street entrance via the ramp at 88th Street and Fifth Avenue.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 09:46, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Great Regression for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Great Regression is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Great Regression until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Mr. Vernon (talk) 04:45, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

In retrospect I should have checked if you were still around before the AfD; I saw your edits and assumed it had long-since been abandoned before tonight (when a no-doubt well meaning editor added some unsourced content.) --Mr. Vernon (talk) 05:08, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Pizzagate[edit]

Given the nature of the completely spurious accusations concerning this topic the safest and most BLP-compliant action is to leave the redirect in place rather than explain what's going on via a disambiguation, especially considering there aren't two articles to disambiguate at this time. I note that the Times and the Post have both reported on this but I think NOTNEWS applies for the time being, especially given the outlandish claims and the tendency for this to become a target for editors promoting the conspiracy theory, as the history shows. I also note that you're moving into edit-warring territory yourself, and you can't claim a BLP exemption if you keep re-creating the disambiguation. Acroterion (talk) 01:02, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

  • When you remove one entry, you give strength to conspiracy theorists who argue that you are covering it up. Readers should be directed to the article that says it has been debunked by reliable sources. A pizzeria is not a living person so not covered by BLP. People should not be directed to a decade old pizzagate. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:08, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
    • I have a lot of experience in dealing with conspiracy theories. I agree with you that where a conspiracy theory has endured for some time we should lay it out plainly. I'm not convinced that the same method applies for something so new and so scurrilous: instead of shining a light on it we're just abetting the defamation. I think the mention in the article is satisfactory, but I'm wary of arguing via a disambiguation, and I'm not convinced that the specific term has much significance outside of Reddit. Acroterion (talk) 01:13, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
As you mentioned, it is already in WaPo and NYT, which is where I found it, and why I went looking for it here. I could not find it without a redirect. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:16, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
I just went to the article on the pizza place after reading the WaPo article this morning. I don't think the presence or absence of a redirect as presently constituted is something I feel really strongly about, but I do care that the disambiguation not be misused as we've both noticed. If it becomes more than a nuisance I'll look into extended confirmed protection. Acroterion (talk) 01:19, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Three reverts in 24 hours[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at George V shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Lawrence Cowle Phipps biography - advice requested[edit]

I am an attorney/genealogist researching Mr Phipps' genealogy for a relative. Although many biographies list his birthplace as Amityville, Berks Co., PA, I believe they are incorrect. On several of his passport applications, Mr Phipps lists his birthplace as Amity, Washington Co., PA. His father was a pastor in Washinton Co. during that time and he has an infant sibling buried there. I can privide copies of the original passport applications. How do you think I should get this change in his birthplace into his biography? Thank you for your help. You may contact me directly at maryhitt@gmail.com Maryhitt (talk) 18:55, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Bert Williams[edit]

I actually realized right after I reverted the IP editor that I entered the wrong explanation. I reverted because there was no Reliable Source provided for the claims. --Cameron11598 (Talk) 22:19, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Vonda Phelps[edit]

Manhattan, New York City[edit]

I apologize: I didn't realize I was "edit warring." I'm new to Wikipedia, and thought it would be okay to learn as I go. I will certainly learn the proper way to reference my sources.

Just out of curiosity: can you support your assertion that Hobson was born in Manhattan, New York City? Perhaps you're right, but I don't remember ever reading that she was. Hobson herself says in her autobiography that she was born in "New York City," so apparently she didn't think it important to specify which borough. It wasn't important to the writers of her obituaries in The New York Times or The Washington Post, either.

Personally, I think "Manhattan, New York City" looks ridiculous. "Manhattan," okay, but I don't think you need to specify that Manhattan is part of New York City. Even I am not so ignorant as to confuse it with Manhattan, Iowa.

Thank you for your directives. Your communication is the first I've received from a fellow Wikipedian, and I appreciate the hostility.

Untold Millions (talk) 03:14, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

We have a style guide for Wikipedia so that all biographies have the same look and feel. There is a massive project going on now at Wikipedia to check each link at "New York" and convert them to "New York (state)" and "New York City". About 25% were pointing to the wrong entity, the next step is to diasambiguate the proper borough for "New York City". BTW, what got you started. What made you hit the edit button? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 03:29, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the links; they're going to be helpful. I won't edit the "Manhattan, New York City" again. As for the citation templates: from what I understand, use of the templates isn't "encouraged or discouraged" by Wikipedia, as long as citations are consistent on any given page. That said, I do agree that citations should be consistent across Wikipedia as a whole, so I'm looking at them. Like everyone, I've consulted Wikipedia for years, but I didn't start editing until I came across the Laura Z. Hobson page. It was incomplete, badly written, poorly cited... I felt it was a disservice to Hobson, whom I've admired for over thirty years. Of course, I didn't realize what I was getting myself into: there's a lot more to this than I realized, and I don't seem to want to do much else! Untold Millions (talk) 05:23, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
There are probably a three people a day in the New York Times obituaries that do not have articles that deserve them. When you use citation templates rather than just text, at any time in the future all the templated citations can be changed automatically to the new format. We may decide to switch to the European date system, or have the date after the title, or remove the italics. You only have to change the template and all the citations are changed automatically. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 05:49, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Untold Millions: Wikipedia is habit forming. I just rescued Niles City Sound from a pile of articles threatened with deletion and have been reading up on it, beefing the article up in the process. Fixing up the citation format was part of that. Also, some of our best articles refer to books extensively, which make heavy use of shortened footnotes. But that's for another time. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:22, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Cassianto[edit]

Just a quick head's up, Cassianto is unblocked, so per the conversation at User talk:Floquenbeam#January 2017, I would advise you to raise your intended case at ANI as soon as possible, otherwise the temporary evidence page is likely to be deleted again.

File source problem with File:Charles Edison (draft registration card, 1918).gif[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Charles Edison (draft registration card, 1918).gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of SSI Group Holding Corp[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article SSI Group Holding Corp has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Does not meet WP:NCORP. There are articles on Souper Salad and Grandy's, but the parent company itself is not notable as an individual entity.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. MB 03:47, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

There will be childcare, snacks, multiple trainings and panel discussions. People of all gender identities and expressions welcomed and encouraged to attend.

This year’s edit-a-thon kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with a conversation about information activism with writer Joanne McNeil and Data & Society Research Institute Fellow Zara Rahman, moderated by Kimberly Drew, the social media manager for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, creator of the Tumblr “Black Contemporary Art,” and the person behind @museummammy on Instagram. Afternoon breakout groups will engage in focused discussions about related issues, including intersectionality and librarianship, power structures in notability guidelines on Wikipedia, and radical archives. --Pharos (talk) 18:46, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

That is what it was already redirecting to. It really should be restored there. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:44, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

"Meaning of the word 'is' is"[edit]

I saw that you created "Meaning of the word 'is' is". Per Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2009 July 14, the redirects Meaning of the word "is" is and The definition of "is" is were deleted. I thought at first about either nominating the redirect page for discussion or redirecting it to Copula (linguistics). However, I chose to discuss this with you first. Thoughts? --George Ho (talk) 21:59, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Hmm... found another Definition of "is" is. George Ho (talk) 22:03, 12 March 2017 (UTC) "* I think it deserves to be in Wikipedia to some target, still being used within last year according to Google News. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:49, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

You mean Lewinsky scandal? (Umm... typo above) George Ho (talk) 00:07, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Ancestror Ytterlännäs and Anundsjö[edit]

I guess we are related, my grandfathers family come from Ångermanland, and I have several ancestor from the parishes you mentioned. Anyhow, The enwiki and meta genealogy project now goes into a new dimension, we will establish a user group, and create an email list. Please support the creation of the email list here.

Have you taken the Ancestry DNA test yet? Best $99 I spent. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:11, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel[edit]

Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel
NYC-2017-WIKIPEDIA DAY-90.jpg
Wikimedia New York City logo.svg

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:13, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Dai Turgeon (ca. 1910-1915).jpg needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Dai Turgeon (ca. 1910-1915).jpg appears to be missing information as to one (or more) of the following :

  1. The author or creators of the work, (including information as to the author's lifespan).
  2. Where and how this particular version was obtained.
  3. When the work was created,

If you did provide such information, it is currently 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|Richard Arthur Norton (1958- )}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.

Please also add authorship and sourcing to other files you created or uplopaded. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.
