Wikipedian in Residence at the National Library of Scotland[edit]

I'm just dropping you a quick note about a new Wikipedian in Residence job that's opened up at the National Library of Scotland. There're more details at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Scotland#Wikimedian in Residence at the National Library of Scotland. Richard Symonds (WMUK) (talk) 14:56, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Vanhoollogo.gif)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Vanhoollogo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 09:30, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

File permission problem with File:Ari Vatanen.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Ari Vatanen.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:26, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2016 Scottish Rally Championship season, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Elgin (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.

Ford Escort[edit]

Hi. Can you indicate where it has been discussed before about the Ford Escort generations and mark numbers? I can't find that information on the talk page of the article where it should be, nor a link to a discussion. The fact that in Great Britain (I suppose) the 1995 model was called Mark 6 doesn't mean that in the article it should be referred to as a new generation. We have a similar case in the Ford Fiesta article, where Mark 4 and Mark 5 models (by the British designation) are commonly grouped under the fourth generation section. (We can simply mention that in the 1995 facelift section.) Then, in the following two sections they are differentiated with claims whether how it was known internationally and how it was known in Britain. In either case, I think that these claims should be backed up with references, not argued with a majority of opinions. Also, there should be no prices described in the articles, according to WP:NOPRICES. Regards, BaboneCar (talk) 15:29, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, the issue was briefly discussed back in 2006 and can be found on the talk page (here>> Talk:Ford Escort (Europe)#Mark 4, Mark 5, Mark 6????? - TOO CONFUSING). Two users bothered to reply and both disagreed that it should be simplified. The Mk1 and Mk2 share many parts and the Mk6 and Mk5 are pretty much the same vehicle as the Mk4 with facelifts. All the models borrow many details from the previous. Should we do away with the 'Mk' sections in the article? The 1995 facelift is widely known, (not just in the UK) as the Mk6. The article has had the 'Mk6' section you are contesting since 2006 with no complaints or arguments so therefore I suggest the article remain as-is and if you still believe it should be changed then it should be properly discussed on the talk page first. scanbus (talk) 17:31, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
I personally can't agree that the Mark 6 should be considered a new generation, but will accept the article in its current form at least for the moment. I found this independent reference that regards the models by mark numbers like they are currently described in the article and I am considering adding it there. I think that there should be consistency with the Fiesta article when speaking about mark numbers and generations, therefore this is the reason I will accept the current form.

Nomination of Bond Aviation Group for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Bond Aviation Group is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bond Aviation Group until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Andy Dingley (talk) 16:26, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
