Hey! This is me... so, uh... talk about me, I guess.

Asian countries[edit]

You classified Egypt and Cyprus as Asian, but isn't Egypt African and Cyprus European? Wyllium 10:47, 30 May 2004 (UTC)

Excellent work in the Windows XP article[edit]

The article seems clearer and has been written in a much better NPOV. Good work! - Ta bu shi da yu 23:19, 4 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Hey, you seem to be pretty level headed and added info about performance to the Windows XP article. I'm asking for mediation, I'll let you know what happens if you're interested. - Ta bu shi da yu 07:15, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)


The information was not incorrect, but it was worded in an inflamatory way. I changed the wording to make it less inflamatory, without removing important information.

All kinds of groups, from political orgs to religious sects to businesses, leave flyers under windshields. I think it goes without saying that these groups all do so without the vehicle owners' permissions. As for phone booths and park benches, these are public property, so the idea of getting an owner's permission isn't applicable.

I'm glad you're adding factual information -- keep up the good work! But it sometimes takes a separate set of eyes (and a separate set of biases) to keep everything as NPOV as possible. Quadell (talk) (help)[[]] 14:26, Nov 4, 2004 (UTC)

Image Copyright[edit]

Hi! Thanks for uploading Image:OrrParkTingleDragon.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much, Edwinstearns 15:32, 9 Dec 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:


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:

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)
