Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. Those are some great photos you're uploading.

Here's some tips:

  • You can introduce yourself on the new users page.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
  • Remember to use the show preview button before you save a page.
  • If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page.

Other useful pages are: how to edit, how to write a great article, naming conventions, manual of style and the Wikipedia policies.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Angela. 00:02, Mar 15, 2004 (UTC)


Hi. Interesting story of your climb. Sounds to me like that might have been the first time, not the 10th time for your "guide". We are considering the Machame or Rongai routes, the Marangu (Coca-cola route) was discarded a while back by us. I've done a lot of scrambling in my days and a bit of glacier travel. I'd give more consideration to some of the more demanding routes but the other person is not quite up to that. You sure didn't leave much time for acclimatization. I spent two nights in a tent at nearly 5100m in Nepal and while not easy I was comfortable after being above 4,000m for 9 days. RedWolf 04:10, Apr 24, 2004 (UTC)

Icon image[edit]

Hi Seabhcan! I noticed you have added this image to the Tewahedo Church article. Although I am not shure if it is needed in that article I certainly think it is a nice addition to the Wikipedia, AS LONG AS it conforms to the GNU FDL. Please read through the license part of upload file page and specify in the image article all the needed info. If this is not done I will probably list your image for deletion and remove all links to it. Dittaeva 09:19, 9 May 2004 (UTC)

Thank you! Very nice conditions by the way.
Your last uploaded images does not contain any licencing conditions however...may I assume that they all follow the Icon image license?
Yip. Everything I upload is my own. I usually put 'by seabhcan' on them. is this not enough? Seabhcan 15:23, 11 May 2004 (UTC)
Well it kind of should be enough, but since so many images have been used without the copyright holders consent (by others), it would be best if you add a notice like the one in the Icon article to remove suspicion. What could also be a solution is to write 'by [[User:Seabhcan|seabhcan]]' in the image articles, and then have a notice like the one on the Icon page on your user page. F. ex.: You are free to use all images by me for any purpose imagneable (or whatever it was).
The current template at Seabhcan/pic has a problem. It allows non-profit use, which means not free use (as required by GFDL. I'm tagging these as non-commersial, which will lead to them being deleted, feel free to change that to a free licence like gfdl, or cc-by-sa Zeimusu 00:41, 2005 Jan 22 (UTC)

Great stuff![edit]

Hi there! Great to see a fellow UL graduate here! That's a great contribution to Limerick, Ireland you just added - also the previous additions (I should have thanked you for the photo)!

I amended the Percy French bit in County Clare just a tad - to mention the West Clare Railway by name, and edited the detail on the rail closures - they were almost all after the Irish Free State (first wholesale closures 1947 with fuel shortages "suspending" services) - ripping up our national infrastructure progressed in the 50s,60s and 70s (in the 80s/90s more was left just to rot). I added a "see History of rail transport in Ireland".

Which leads to my next point - if you know anything about the West Clare Railway an article and/or an addition to the above article would be great.

Zoney 22:55, 26 May 2004 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm afraid that I don't know anything much about the West Clare Railway - If I come across anything I'll stick it in. A map of the old network would be nice.

Seabhcan 22:53, 27 May 2004 (UTC)

I was considering doing that - I have a map of the current network - which is now here on WP Rail transport in Ireland. I'll probably work on the old route map this weekend - to put at History of rail transport in Ireland. I have info in various books about the WCR - I'll get around to writing about it at some stage I'm sure. Zoney 22:57, 27 May 2004 (UTC)

Lowercase v, please. See Category:Computer vision. Thanks Dysprosia 13:25, 8 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Ok. Sorry. I'll stop editing for a while and let you finish.
Seabhcan 13:29, 8 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Fixed what's there and moved to the cat above. It's just that articles are usually cased with the first letter and proper nouns capitalized, with the rest lowercased. This should apply to categories as well. Thanks Dysprosia

Page moves[edit]

Hi there!

Just moved the Limerick article to Limerick. I discovered your earlier move from Limerick, Ireland to Limerick City created a problem, as you cut-and-pasted it rather than used the "move" button. This meant that the article history up to that point was stuck at Limerick, Ireland. I've merged the two now, and minus a little muddy history on the talk page, it's all fixed.

If you're moving a page in future, always use the move button. If that doesn't work (because there's a page at the destination already or somesuch), get an admin to sort it out. I can do such things now, so I'm happy for you to give me a shout should you need a hand!

Regards, zoney talk 13:23, 22 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I still think it makes more sense to call the page "Limerick City" to put it appart from all the other meanings of Limerick. Seabhcan 15:42, 22 Sep 2004 (UTC)
People creating links to Limerick predominantly intend for them to go to the city article. If one use is obviously more major than the others, keeping the main article at SubjectName and a link on top of page to SubjectName (disambiguation) is the usual practice. zoney talk 19:03, 22 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Celtic Tiger[edit]

I've put Celtic Tiger up on WP:FAC. Please support it! Another Irish Featured Article would be great. CGorman 10:19, 26 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Thanks for uploading Image:TurkWaterfall.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, Quadell (talk) (help)[[]] 19:02, Nov 17, 2004 (UTC)

Hi Quadell, The image is {{gfdl}} , and I have added this tag. Thanks. Seabhcan 20:15, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Re: Dublin Airport[edit]

Howdy. Where did you get the information that Air France flies Dublin-London? I've never heard of this and I can't find such flights on AF's website. - Sekicho 03:45, Nov 21, 2004 (UTC)

Your right, they dont fly. I got it from the Dublin Airport Timetable but on closer inspection it these Air France flights are codeshare with CityJet. I removed it from Dublin Airport. Seabhcan 12:02, 21 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Your User Page[edit]

Hi, Seabhcan! Just wanted to draw your attention to a mistake on your User Page. It's privet (привет in Russian), not prevet. Even though Wikipedia's motto is Be Bold!, I decided not to change it myself :). KNewman 20:39, Nov 27, 2004 (UTC)




  1. I modified your MetaPicstub template to include a size
  2. I added your MetaPicstub template to the list of stub templates
  3. I created a redirect at Template:Metapicstub in the event of misspelling and easier use.
  4. I modified your metapicstub template again, to include tables so that whatever the image is, the text is always centered with the image.

--[[User:AllyUnion|AllyUnion (talk)]] 07:58, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)

One more thing... Also included alternative image text. Very important for text based browsers. --[[User:AllyUnion|AllyUnion (talk)]] 08:11, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Russian wikipedians' notice board[edit]

Sorry for my late reply-- I've been on break from Wiki since Thanksgiving here in the US... Excellent work on the Russia notice board. I've just signed on... BTW, if you haven't alerted him yet, User:A. Shetsen maybe someone else who is interested in this project. 172 20:03, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)


Hi! Thanks for uploading Image:5-Som-Seabhcan.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, ℘yrop (talk) 23:44, Dec 8, 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)

Russian Board[edit]

Hi there, Seabhcan! How do we go about changing the RCOTWs? MSU has been there for weeks already. How do we get people to vote for a RCOTW? Left Opposition and Black Hundred were pretty much ignored. Do you think people know that they can click between the two Russian flags and get to another page with RCOTWs? Looks like there is some interest in general, but it's all very slow, still. What do you think? KNewman 18:59, Dec 13, 2004 (UTC)

Hi KNewman. I'm afraid I know nothing about Left Opposition or the Black Hundred, so I've had nothing to contribute to these. I would be more interested in contemporary russian articles. There are still plenty of large Russian cities with poor articles, everything from Arkhangelsk to Yaroslavl. Also, many social topics are neglected: Media in Russia, Newspapers in Russia, Crime in Russia, Racism in Russia, etc. I would support any such topic for the RCOTW. Seabhcán 23:47, 13 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Blasphemy of Faith[edit]

Hi, Seabhcan. Could you provide a bit more background on the Blasphemy of Faith article you have written? I'm not familiar with this term and a Google search didn't turn up anything useful. Can you provide sources for it? What makes this notable? --BM 23:19, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Since I didn't hear from you, I decided to put Blasphemy of Faith on Wikipedia:Votes for Deletion --BM 22:21, 22 Dec 2004 (UTC) - is it public domain photo? 18:49, 27 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Please Support![edit]

Ryanair is on Wikipedia:Featured article candidates. Please support! CGorman 15:13, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Metapicstub template[edit]

I would like to inquire as to why you changed the template from a redirect into the same text as MetaPicstub template. -- AllyUnion (talk) 11:17, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Hi AllyUnion, The redirect was causing problems with stub lists such as Wikipedia:Template messages/Stubs. Its because mediawiki doesn't allow chain redirects. Seabhcán 00:33, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Tony Martin clipart[edit]

The Tony Martin clipart you've uploaded is not public domain, like you say. I've corrected File:Factoryclipart.gif and File:Castlesketch.gif, but I don't know what others you've uploaded. I'd appreciate it if you could correct them. Thanks. AaronSw 03:19, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)

He says on his website that: "You can use this clipart on your website, be it for-profit or non-profit, as long as your website is not a clipart or other graphics must provide me with visible credit somewhere near the clipart image(s) used (as in "Clipart copyright © 2003 by Tony Martin.")." Which I did. There are no others. Seabhcán 14:41, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)


You just deleted someone else's comments, it may have been a server problem but if not, please pay proper attention on the edit conflict screen. --fvw* 18:08, 2005 Jan 18 (UTC)

Hmm, looks like it was a server problem. These things can be avoided by not hitting save page repeatedly but just waiting for the request to time out when the server is slow. --fvw* 18:10, 2005 Jan 18 (UTC)

Your story on Wikinews[edit]


Let me reassure you, first, that your story was *exactly* the kind we are looking for on Wikinews; local, citizen-reported news.

Now, the bad news: we have extremely limited resources to develop the stories we have submitted. Most days we might get 6-10 submissions through various routes, but only have the option of getting 2-3 written per day outside our own articles and tasks.

I brought your article to the attention of the person who covered the Melbourne incident and a contributor in Ireland before a brief holiday for myself. Since it had not been developed during my absence, and the news was no longer "breaking", I removed it from the queue, along with many other stories and ideas which had not been developed.

I would still love to see an article, especially one based on your experiences, but simply don't have enough time to work on it myself. I would be very happy to advise you through the writing of this article, if you are interested in reporting the events. It is both easier and more difficult than Wikipedia. - Amgine / talk
