Dispute on use of images on user page[edit]

Here is the only thing I can find regarding use of images on a page (though this is not directed towards user pages):

"5. Images that are unused, obsolete, violate fair-use policy, or are unencyclopedic."

...as a grounds for deletion. However, my page clearly says a "definition" in pictures. It is meant to be "encyclopedic," the images are being used to demonstrate information (about me), and they are not in violation as far as I can tell of fair-use policy. As well, the deletion policy says, "Pages that can be improved should be edited or tagged, not nominated for deletion," showing that this page should not have been nominated for deletion as it can be improved--and I will work towards that later today. Thank you. Sjbodell 12:56, 21 June 2007 (UTC)


I cannot find a guideline that prohibits the use of photographs, much less a "personal photo album," on user pages. Indeed, the photographs here are not a personal photo album. So, unless I can come across such a guideline I will leave those pictures. Any objections? Thanks. Sjbodell 12:45, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:DermoidTumor.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DermoidTumor.JPG. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

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

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 22:07, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

I have deleted this image from teratoma until you can tag it. Also, the caption needs a rewrite. "A large dermoid cyst with pronounced, embedded features such as a spine" does not work because although the photo shows what looks like a well-encapsulated tumor, it is not apparent that the tumor is a dermoid cyst and the photo shows no "pronounced, embedded features such as a spine". Since the tumor is so well encapsulated, I am willing to accept that it is a teratoma, but for a teratoma this tumor is not large. --Una Smith 03:36, 27 June 2007 (UTC)



Just to defend something that I feel rather deeply about on a personal level, the teratoma photo in question is of a tumor removed from me when I was still a child. Considering the size of the tumor, roughly that of an American-football, and my size, small, I believe the tumor is large. As well, the surgeons who removed it--having more than fifty years experience in gynecological disorders between them--stated that it was one of the ten largest tumors they have ever extracted. I understand the point that perhaps some cannot necessarily determine what type of tumor it is from this photograph, however I think it is a step too far to declare my tumor "not large." Absolutely unnecessary. I wonder how others would characterize a football removed from them. Sjbodell 19:03, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Caldwellcohistmarker.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:Caldwellcohistmarker.JPG. The copy called Image:Caldwellcohistmarker.JPG has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account. Staeckerbot 16:15, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Caldwell County communities[edit]

Please don't remove the Caldwell County template from communities legitimately in the county, whether Princeton or Dawson Springs. You may see from this (page 11) PDF (an official United States Census Bureau document), that Dawson Springs really is in Caldwell County. Whether or not it's centered in Caldwell County, it's officially recognised as being in the county. Nyttend (talk) 17:26, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Aha, sorry about the bad link: it was intended to be this page: the links are the same, except for the two-letter postal abbreviation, and I copy/pasted without thinking. As far as visiting: the closest I've been is somewhere in Benton County, Tennessee. According to the map that I tried to send you, it's distinctly pointed out as being in Caldwell County — but then you'd have a hard time finding that with an Ohio map :-) County templates such as this are used nationwide: there's no policy requiring such templates, but they're used in every county with at least two communities in thirty different states. Nyttend (talk) 00:30, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
I can't imagine that there's anything wrong with posting what you've said on relevant article pages: election districts, telephone exchanges, and postal addresses are basic bits of our infrastructure that are essential for comprehensive coverage of a community or a region. Of course, you'll need to source this properly, but it would be a very good idea to have a referenced bit of what you said. Census results, of course, are different, and communities should only be listed where their official borders lie and should be listed everywhere they extend, but that's a matter of reading maps. You may have a little bit deeper work to prove your statements, but by all means seek to improve things! Nyttend (talk) 01:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm curious about your statement that Tolu and Crayne are incorporated: surely they'd be tracked if they were incorporated? Many places exist with their own post offices but aren't incorporated. I'd like to let you know: I'm not a bigcity person; my hometown is only twice as big as Fredonia, right about the size of White Plains, at least by population. Thanks for your work: as a geography-based editor, I appreciate the work of others in local areas where it's hard to get good sources! Nyttend (talk) 03:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
