Hi! I know you're new and trying hard, so I wanted to gives you a heads-up about what tags mean. They are designed to attract more editors to help you do what you want to do anyway: improving the article. Also, it is considered bad form to remove them unless the issues raised have been properly addressed. For example, it isn't a good idea to remove a tag requesting sources to be added until after you've added sources. Intending to add sources at some unspecified point in the future, while commendable, just isn't good enough. Don't worry about the tags, they aren't a blight on your article and are actually designed to help you improve it. However, removing tags before problems have been fixed, especially if done repeatedly, is generally considered vandalism. If you think the tags have been added in error and no improvement to your article are needed, feel free to raise the issues on the article's talk page, and if a consensus of other editors agree with you, then you can remove the tags without changing the article. Thanks. Mermaid from the Baltic Sea 22:33, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

From my talk page[edit]

Wikipedia:Manual of Style and Wikipedia:Guide to writing better articles are good places to start figuring things out. If you want to see examples of the best articles in Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Featured articles and try to copy their style and layout. Good luck and hope you stay around to edit many articles.

Image tagging for Image:BaseLocMapper.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BaseLocMapper.gif. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Unspecified source for Image:BaseLocMapper.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BaseLocMapper.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:13, 16 June 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. The Evil Spartan 20:13, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
