Question on picture uploads[edit]

Hello, ServiceAT. Did you really take these pictures? [1], [2], [3], [4] et al. I don't mean to come off wrong but this is quite the variety of photos from one photographer and I just wanted to make sure they were in-line with the image-use policy.--NortyNort (Holla) 08:23, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, absolutely! I have a large slide collection of photos taken personally by me in the 1960s through 1980s and have scanned them all to digital. These are all places that I have personally been and photographed, so the copyright is mine. Thanks for asking. ServiceAT (talk) 16:57, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Okay, well that's impressive. They are a great addition to the Commons.--NortyNort (Holla) 21:44, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:RubelLife19561001a.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:RubelLife19561001a.png. 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 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. Melesse (talk) 02:00, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:RubelLife19561001a.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:RubelLife19561001a.png. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. We hope (talk) 22:28, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Harold Agnew[edit]

It seems odd that Harold Agnew (Harold M. Agnew) has no WP page, since he is referenced multiple times, and is quite a noteworthy figure. It occurs to me that perhaps he did have a page but, as a living person, requested its deletion. I've searched recent deletions and don't find anything there, but this might have been long ago. I'd be happy to contribute a page, but I don't want to be wasting my time. Could some administrator tell me if there was previously a page "Harold Agnew" or "Harold M. Agnew" and, in a few words, why it was deleted? Thanks! ServiceAT (talk) 18:23, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

I got this response asking the same question on IRC chat:

[11:29] <+Chzz> I'm looking [11:31] <+Chzz> I can't find anything anywhere, except mentioned in other articles and as "missing articles" and so on. It looks like we have never had a page about him. No page called "Harold Agnew" has ever existed... and I can't see anything similar [11:31] <+Chzz> so, go for it [11:32] <+Chzz> Keegan [11:34] <ServiceAT> Thanks, Chzz (Keegan)! If you don't mind, I'll copy your response to my talk page, where I put an adminhelp request. [11:35] <+Chzz> sure. I'm not an admin, but I can see logs of deletions and things, ServiceAT. Unless it's been 'oversighted', it's never existed. And it's pretty unlikely that it's been OS'd, because there is no discussion of anything about it anywhere on wiki [11:36] <+Chzz> and yes, you can copy what I've said here; no worries. ServiceAT (talk) 18:40, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

(edit conflict) If a page existed at those names, it would show as a log entry when viewing Harold Agnew or Harold M. Agnew (see Connor warden for an example how it would look like). So if you can write an article about him and he is notable by our standards, feel free to do it :-) Regards SoWhy 18:44, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

What you can do now is nominate the article for Did you know? It will then appear on the front page. Go here to nominate it. Hawkeye7 (talk) 01:01, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Manhattan Project[edit]

Thankyou for your edit to the Manhattan Project article. I decided not to use the new picture, as (1) is is not easily readable without clicking (2) does not say anything significant. I did not intend to revert without comment. If you feel strongly about the matter, I am open to discussion. If you are interested in collaborating on a nuclear-related article, I have several that need attention, particularly my next project, the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Cheers.
