The Three Graces[edit]

I am disappointed that you chose to remove my contribution without contacting me first (Three Graces page). It is not a violation to use someone else's material if that someone else is you. I wrote the book and the website from which I added material due to the lack of substance and accuracy on the current wiki page. Removing another editors contributions are typically discouraged and in the future, I would recommend you contact the editor prior to removing their contribution for clarification. Please add back my prior edits.[user talk:PsychoticDoc) — Preceding unsigned comment added by PsychoticDoc (talkcontribs) 00:46, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi @PsychoticDoc: I see you are referring to a series of edits from just over a year ago. There were two problems with the text you added to that page.
First, before you added the text, The Three Graces was a disambiguation page (information about disambiguation pages at Help:Disambiguation). Disambiguation pages are not intended to have substance, they are intended to redirect readers to another page. The page Charites is the location of the Wikipedia article about the subject of the Three Graces. I returned the article to its status as a disambiguation page.
Second, as I recall from a year ago, the material you added was nearly identical to that at and appeared to be a copyright violation. I explained this on your talk page at the time and linked to Wikipedia:Copyright violations. If as you imply above, you hold the copyright to the material on that page, the procedure for donating it to Wikipedia is at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
I'm sorry you are disappointed, but I think I did the right things then. It is not normal practice to check with earlier editors before making changes (see Wikipedia:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle). If you disagree with my changes we can discuss how to move forward, probably at Talk:The Three Graces.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  04:36, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Cultural depictions of lions[edit]

hi what is the problem with the lionhead is it a photography art?why i cannt put my picture there (King Muh) — Preceding unsigned comment added by King muh (talkcontribs) 19:45, 23 January 2016 year (UTC)

Hi @King muh: Your picture at File:LIONHEAD " Löwenmensch ".jpg is interesting, but it doesn't fit in with the subject of the page Cultural depictions of lions. The pictures that are on the page relate to culture and almost all are significant works of art held in museums or are part of important architecture. Your picture might be appropriate for display on the Internet, but it doesn't seem to be significant for Wikipedia. Thanks,  SchreiberBike | ⌨  20:01, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
what you exactly mean with fit the cultural article is it art and we are right now in a multi culturel society "200016year" should i start an article with "the imaginnär multi kulti revolution of the prelegion art photography":)(King Muh)— Preceding unsigned comment added by King muh (talkcontribs) 20:33, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
@King muh: I'm sorry I have not replied more quickly and I'm sorry I won't respond more specifically, but I don't enjoy arguing and I can understand very little of what you are trying to say. I presume that English is not your first language and must tell you that in English what you are writing is at very least unclear. Please look over Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and generally compare what you have added to Cultural depictions of lions with what you generally see on Wikipedia. I will remove your pictures and commentary again. If there is further discussion of what should be on that page, let's discuss it at Talk:Cultural depictions of lions. Thank you.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  15:30, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you[edit]

Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar.png The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
You deserve a barnstar because you respond to other editors in a polite and friednly manner and actually make constructive edits and not just deleting material from pages or nominating articles for deletion which some other users who in my opinion undeservingly receive barnstar awards seem to do in drones.Have a great day :) , Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 02:08, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the barnstar! Keep up the good work.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  22:59, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
