Speedy deletion of Rosamund Grosvenor[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Rosamund Grosvenor requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

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 that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 16:06, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when.

Vita Sackville-West[edit]

Hi, I noticed you keep adding information to Vita Sackville-West which other editors then remove because it is unsourced. It's necessary, when editing Wikipedia, to show where you got your information from. Which should be easy enough-- you must be getting it from somewhere! Bear in mind that many websites don't qualify as reliable sources; you're much better off getting your information from published books. As I recall, there was some information on Rosamund Grosvenor in Portrait of a Marriage, which, if that's where you're getting your information, is a perfectly good source. This page tells you how to reference your sources correctly; if you're having trouble, ask for help on the article's talk page. I'll post some more links below which you may find helpful. Good luck, and thanks for your work on Wikipedia! --Fullobeans (talk) 18:55, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Rosamund1888: I saw your post on my talk page. I hope you see this one. I am sympathetic if English is not your native language, but even the Dutch Wikipedia has policies about verifiable material. If you have access to the sources you mentioned, try to read the pages here that explain how to cite them. If you need help with this please let me know, or better yet, look for an experienced mentor to guide you through it. Best of luck, dfg (talk) 20:13, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Here is the Dutch Wikipedia article about reliable sources, and here is the one about how to write references and footnotes. Assuming you are Mitya1888 on nl.wikipedia, it looks like you are having a lot of the same problems over there. Please, don't be afraid to ask questions, and take the time to learn the rules of Wikipedia. It's not the job of other Wikipedia editors (or readers) to "figure out" where you got your information from; it's your job to add references so that other people can double-check your facts. If you don't tell us where your facts came from, then they cannot be published as facts! That's how any encyclopedia works, not just Wikipedia. If you can add good, sourced, relevant information to Wikipedia, it won't matter if your English is not perfect. It's easy for other editors to correct your grammar; it's nearly impossible for them to figure out what book you were looking at when you wrote a certain paragraph. If you need help translating or understanding the rules, you might be able to find a friend through Category:Dutch Wikipedians. Good luck! --Fullobeans (talk) 22:25, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Long barn.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Long barn.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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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:Non-free content, 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 the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 17:50, 10 July 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sterkebak (talk) 17:50, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
