Hello Geeoharee, welcome to Wikipedia.

You might find these links helpful: How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Naming conventions, Manual of Style. You should read our policies at some point too.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump, or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

  • You can introduce yourself on the new user log.
  • You can find lots more information, including open tasks and daily tips, at the community portal.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp as well.
  • Before saving a page, it's a good idea to use the Show preview button to review your edits. Also, consider writing a summary for each edit.

Again, welcome! Chris Roy 00:04, 20 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Thanks Chris, nice to be here. geeoharee 01:16, 25 Apr 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 2000 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)

RfD[edit]

On 02 March, you tagged the redirect Host file for deletion, but you did not list it at Wikipedia:Redirects for deletion. I have added it to that page for discussion. You may wish to add a comment there if you still wish to see this redirect deleted. In the future, if you nominate a redirect for deletion, please list it. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions. -- JLaTondre 01:52, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Juliet Butler[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Juliet Butler, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

re: Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary - why cause edit conflicts for minor edit when an editor is editing an article & losing information because of conflict via your WB[edit]

It would be nice if you waited a few minutes before you jumped in with your AWB. As it was I was fixing the named referenced situation plus adding more information -- information lost in the edit conflict. If you look at the edit history, it does not make sense that you would interfer with productive editing. I will drop the article so you can feel free to play with it. Guess the lesson here for me is to save as quickly every minor change and never try to combine minor edits into one. Well, it will rack up my edit count.

steven hawking[edit]

thanks for the 'canned message', but the data you refer to are the redundant duplicative succession boxes. thanks.--emerson7 01:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

btw, you might want to take a look at WP:DTTR for a few tips on using that vp you've got there. cheers! --emerson7 01:50, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I hadn't seen WP:DTTR before but the template is beginning to bother me (and that revert was dumb to start with). I'm going to have a think about whether I want to use templates at all. geeoharee (talk) 01:53, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

List of Peabody Award winners (1940-1949)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of List of Peabody Award winners (1940-1949), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: List of Peabody Award winners. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 07:21, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm dealing with it, hang on a cotton-picking minute! geeoharee (talk) 07:22, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

re: humourous vs humorous[edit]

You recently reverted a change to the spelling of this word on Military slang. I've already left a note on the other user's page but I'll ask you also please not to randomly change spellings from American English to British English and back. Both are correct and either may be appropriate depending on the context. The Manual of Style has more on which spelling is appropriate when. If you're going to revert an inappropriate "correction" of this type, please cite the appropriate MOS page, not an incomplete wiktionary page. Thanks. Rossami (talk) 13:52, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

AWB[edit]

You might want to turn on the "skip if no typo fixed" option in AWB as this is not an appropriate use of the tool according to WP:AWB#Rules of use. If you want to fix large amounts of typos, try WP:TSN. Thanks. --Closedmouth (talk) 23:32, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Whoops, sorry. Haven't used it in a while and didn't have it set up right. Thanks. geeoharee (talk) 23:34, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Also, you have changed a significant number of wikilinks simply by converting underscores to spaces: example. This is also something to be avoided under WP:AWB#Rules of use. I edit hundreds of highway articles, all of which use links to images containing underscores in the names. All those type of edits do is clog up history lists and watchlists, so please turn that setting off as well. Sswonk (talk) 23:51, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Hector Barbossa[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Hector Barbossa. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hector Barbossa. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:16, 31 December 2009 (UTC)


Replaceable fair use File:Steve Aoki.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Steve Aoki.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. ww2censor (talk) 19:14, 21 January 2010 (UTC)


File source problem with File:Steve Aoki.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Steve Aoki.jpg. 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 website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. 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 per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:14, 21 January 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 20:14, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Star Trek[edit]

Hello, Geeoharee, this message is being sent to inform you that, due to over two years editing inactivity, your username has been taken off of the list of Wikipedia Project Star Trek active conributers. If you have returned to active editing Wikipedia, please re add your name to the list of active contributers. Thank you, -- Alpha Quadrant (talk) 15:50, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Was this your previous alternate account? :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 19:51, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I changed the name from that to Geeoharee. Just because I'd had that username since I was about twelve. Grew out of it. geeoharee (talk) 22:36, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:04, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Come hang out with us![edit]

Hi! I wanted to let you know that we have created an IRC channel for "countering systemic bias one new editor at a time", aka closing the gender gap! Come hang out at #wikimedia-gendergap. We hope this channel can serve as a safe haven to hang out, talk about Wiki, brainstorming, women in Wikimedia, article alerts and foster friendships. I hope you join us! (And if you need any IRC help, just let me know!) See you there! SarahStierch (talk) 14:50, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Edward Lockspeiser[edit]

Thanks for visiting this page. However, I had not only just created it but was also still hard at work; therefore, your actions were not only premature but also caused an edit conflict. Although the intent is well-meaning, I'd rather not feel like I am about to have a literary colonoscopy immediately upon the first save of an article. will desist from further work until I know you and the other Wiki gnomes are out of the meadow, so to speak. Jonyungk (talk) 13:52, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

You're right - I was trying out something new, and obviously it caused more problems than it solved. Sorry about the edit conflict. geeoharee (talk) 13:59, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

European Association of Libraries and Information Services on Addictions[edit]

Thanks a lot for your typo fixing. I learned a lot. I looked at your user page : we have a lot of common points. I am a French contributor (LGTB films), but a beginner in English pages. I am also found of (French) typography. And I worked about 15 years in international networks on substance abuse. That's why I started with the page on Elisad. But a lot of pages have to be done in this sector, which will link to each others. Regarding the Elisad page, you also added an orphan tab. There are now 3 links to it in Wikipedia, and other new pages will soon link to it also. So, can we delete this tab ? Is is still an orphan page? Thanks for your reply.--Anising (talk) 08:43, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Anising - the orphan tag was added because I tried out a new setting on AWB, which I now realise was a bad idea. Since the page has links now, feel free to remove the tag, and thanks for helping to build a new part of Wikipedia! geeoharee (talk) 11:48, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

STiki: A new version and a thank you![edit]

Greetings geeoharee. As the developer of the STiki anti-vandal tool, I would like to thank you for recent and non-trivial use of my software. Whether you just tried out the tool briefly or have been a long-term participant, I appreciate your efforts (as I am sure does the entire Wikipedia community)!

I write to inform you of a new version of the software (link goes to list of new features). This version addresses multiple long-term issues that I am happy to put behind us. Try it out! Provide some feedback!

The STiki project is also always seeking collaborators. In particular, we are seeking non-technical colleagues. Tasks like publicity, talk-page maintenance, advertisement, and barn-star distribution are a burden to technical development. If you are interested, write me at my talk page or STiki's talk page.

As STiki approaches two significant thresholds: (1) 100,000 revert actions and (2) 400 unique users -- I hope to have your support in continuing the efficient fight against unconstructive editing. Thanks, West.andrew.g (talk) 23:57, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Headbutt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Penalties (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Request for opinion[edit]

Hi Geeoharee: Sorry to trouble you, but I could not help but notice your expression of affection for TOS on the Wikipedians who like Star Trek: The Original Series page, and so I would be curious of your thoughts on the notability of a Star Trek author for whom I just created a Wikipedia article -- which may be promptly destined for the trash pile. As a newcomer here at Wikipedia, my first article attempt was indeed recommended for deletion within hours of its creation by a senior user named JzG who seems to me to be overly hostile and dismissive of Star Trek, calling it fancruft (= trivial, obscure, of importance to just a tiny group of fanatics) . Since you are a Trek fan, if it is also your good faith opinion that my subject is in no way deserving of an article on this site; and you could let me know, I would feel much more comfortable with the justice of the pending deletion action. My proposed article may be seen here, assuming you visit the page soon enough ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Gurian Kind Regards. Tosresearcher (talk) 05:43, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
