Royal Records[edit]

Hello. Are you a representative of Royal Records? If not, may I ask what your username means? --Geniac (talk) 03:32, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

I had a label called Royal Records International once, yes. But it was disbanded. It was a hobby, and the record companies were behaving unfair towards me. So I gave it up. But I have credit for "Jesus Christ Superstar" (Swedish) and "Geh' mit Gott" (Agnetha Fältskog; German Songs) under licence. Nobody else released this on CD.

Now I support Vanilla Ninja. And I co-operate with all people working for them in order to promote them world-wide.

Thank you for clarifying that. What do you mean by "co-operating with people working for them in order to promote them"? Please see Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. --Geniac (talk) 15:26, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Well that means that they have a Chilean promoter, and I do some work for him, and help him keeping the Wikipedia file up to date, etc. Taking care of fans that they find it interesting and so on, and all without getting or asking money for that. I have no conflict of interest what soever, and I will not make Wikipedia a commercial platform, if you mean this, and as you can see in the article yourself.
Thank you for being open about your (tenuous) connection to Vanilla Ninja. I just wanted to make sure that your username didn't match the name of a real (non-disbanded) record label. When you make edits intending to keep an article up to date, please make sure to include references for information you add. --Geniac (talk) 18:11, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:RecivingTheSeagull.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:RecivingTheSeagull.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 20:40, 18 April 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Polly (Parrot) 20:40, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

  • I have the right to use this official press photo (by Hector Faune, Santiago de Chile, Chile), and it is not forbidden to use this at Wikipedia. Besides, THIS is a recent photo, the other one was 3 years old.

Mind you I am the Admin of VN-LINN, the International Vanilla Ninja Fanclub. I am obeying any copyright. Thanks for understanding. Could you help me with this tagging? So that I do not make a mistake?

Proposed new policy[edit]

As a recent contributor to Deaths in 2009, you may be able to help decide on a proposed new policy. It is proposed that:

A month should be deleted from the "Deaths in [CURRENT YEAR]" page ONE WEEK after the month ends.

Please opine at Talk:Deaths_in_2009#Proposed new policy. Don't just say

  • Support.


  • Oppose.

Also state your reasons and participate in the discussion. Michael Hardy (talk) 16:31, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose

Keep as it is now. There are many deaths in one month, and the list would become quite long. I go the the previous month to see what happened there, as I know where to find it...

Deaths in 2009[edit]

Per this diff, please don't change his nationality to British from Welsh, as his family have made it quite plain that he identified as Welsh. Thanks. Rodhullandemu 21:41, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

your AFD comment[edit]

You posted a comment to Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Taylor Mitchell, but it should have probably been on the main page (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Taylor Mitchell). Do you want to move it? If so, make sure to sign your post. If not, let me know and I'll move it for you. tedder (talk) 00:53, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi... well I have just found the right button...

It is nice to be able to contribute... but sometimes it is hard to find the right "edit" button. Thanks anyway!!

Recent death tag[edit]

The template Recent death should only be used when many editors (perhaps a hundred or more) are editing the article on the same day. It shouldn't be used merely to tag the article of a recently deceased person. - Crosbiesmith (talk) 20:37, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

  • OK. But then a question: would it then not be good to have a time stamp with regard to the latest change? I mean that would be a nice feature, using UTC. It is not visible for "normal" users when opening the article or when editing it.

August 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Deaths in 2010.

  • I have stated that it was SPAM. The link given as source for information led to nothing. And so it was intention to remove a joke-content.

Yes, excuse me, I have repaired the link and added the country, is it ok now? WP:SPAM is something else though, no worries, thanks. Off2riorob (talk) 16:34, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

  • No, it is not. There are 144 examples on this page. It is nice that you try to form a sentence. But this is a list. And please always test the link you give. Thanks!

The use of those brackets ... has a special sense here.


Thanks for cleaning up my bad reference, I pasted the wrong URL. Regards, WWGB (talk) 12:08, 30 December 2010 (UTC)


The Frisian ethnic group has very unique and distinctive names that are easily recognized. Simon Heere Heeresma carries such a name. This clearly indicates Frisian ancestry, as is confirmed by several sources. Polozooza (talk) 08:45, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes I know. I lived in the Netherlands for 8 years. But Frisian is not a nationality. Names like Dijkstra, Veenstra etc. all are Frisian. But Frisia is one of the 12 provinces of the Netherlands. But also in Germany, there are Frisians.
Indeed it is not an official nationality but the Frisians are an officialy recognized ethnic minority group and there language has the same official status, as presented to them by the EU. Polozooza (talk) 10:13, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I am not arguing about that. I am German, I live in Estonia... And here also are minority language groups. Estonia has 3 languages (not dialects) etc. But in my correction, I referred to the use of Frisian-Dutch as a denonym. Even in the south of the Netherlands, there are Dutch people with Frisian names... My ex-neighbours for example. It is nice to have some old traditions. And regions that do not give up their identities, despite of being an integral part of a country.

27 June 2013 Edit[edit]

I did only want to delete ONE invalid entry. Wikipedia deleted a whole bunch of entries. Why? Royalrec (talk) 21:37, 26 June 2013 (UTC)


Sorry about that...didn't see it was listed twice. Connormah (talk) 00:20, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
