Sorry about reverting your post to the reliable sources notice board. I must have mis-clicked and not realized it. --Versageek 07:14, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

License tagging for File:JCThompson1917.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:JCThompson1917.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 08:07, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I have added the copyright tag PD-US to indicate that the photo was taken in the US before 1923.S. M. Sullivan (talk) 09:08, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Sara Northrup[edit]

You nominated Sara Northrup for deletion a few days on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sara Northrup. I have completely rewritten and greatly expanded the article (which is now at Sara Northrup Hollister). Hopefully this will address your notability concerns - if it does, might I suggest that you withdraw your deletion request? Your views on the new-look article would be very welcome. -- ChrisO (talk) 23:48, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I now vote to keep the article.S. M. Sullivan (talk) 00:00, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I appreciate that. Would you have any objection to me closing the AfD as moot? -- ChrisO (talk) 00:01, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Please close it and remove the delete tag at the top of the article.S. M. Sullivan (talk) 00:02, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Will do, thanks again. -- ChrisO (talk) 00:10, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Peer review limits[edit]

The guidelines for Wikipedia:Peer review ask that editors nominate no more than one article per day (and four total at any one time). While the rules say that one of the requests can be removed, I will let it slide since this is the first time. Take care, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 04:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Neil D. Mathur[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Neil D. Mathur, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Doesn't meet criteria at WP:PROF

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Fences&Windows 02:14, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi. :) Although this article is gone, the listing just came current at WP:CP, and I thought to stop by to clarify. You can use brief quotations of copyrighted material in accordance with our non-free content policy and guideline. That page was written to make sure that our use of non-free materials is compliant with United States fair use allowances, although Wikipedia does deliberately choose to handle them conservatively. In this particular case, though I think it's very obvious you did not intend to infringe, the article seems to have existed entirely of quotes, aside from the lead sentence. Most of the text in any article should be your original language, unless the source from which its taken is public domain or otherwise free for use. Even book summaries and plot descriptions must be original language in part because duplicating the entirety of one of these would almost certainly not be brief. The summary you used in this article, for instance, was ten sentences long. If you have any questions about this, or how to implement quotes within policy, please let me know at my talk page. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:10, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Manipal bug[edit]

I marked this as a potential hoax, you worked on it, so maybe you know more or better. --Martin H. (talk) 11:36, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Since you participated in the hoax discussion on Talk:Manipal bug, you may be interested in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Manipal bug. Cunard (talk) 06:38, 23 September 2009 (UTC)


‎Alamgir (archeological site)[edit]

Hi. Thank you for you edits. In the future, I would suggest that you mark creations of redirects as minor edits, and give a relevant edit summary (stating that you created the page as a redirect, as opposed to a stub). Thanks. Claritas (talk) 07:39, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:39, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Edouard Dhorme, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Nord and Hans Bauer (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
