Disambiguation link notification for September 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Debt of developing countries, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Susan George (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Valerie Vaz photo[edit]

Hi Smokey. I have met Keith Vaz several times and spoke to Valerie on the phone but failed to get her to send me a photo. Any photo MUST be copyright free i.e. the photographer -or someone who paid for the photograph must be willing to allow free use as per prescribed text. If you have a photo, I'd be willing to help you upload it. Same applies to any other politician but its mostly Labour ones who miss out on what should be useful positive publicity.

Speedy deletion nomination of Gail Hornstein[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Gail Hornstein, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Hell In A Bucket (talk) 08:40, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of The Great Tradition[edit]

Hello SmokeyTheCat,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged The Great Tradition for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, Pjposullivan (talk) 15:49, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Socialist Party (England & Wales) Talk Page Comment[edit]

Noticed your comment on the talk page there. It seems to be the same situation with their sister party in the Republic of Ireland; a country where they actually have elected councillors, TDs (members of the Irish Parliament) and an MEP. It seems to have started when Clare Daly, a TD, resigned.

Velvet Glove, Iron Fist: A History of Anti-Smoking ‎[edit]

I merged it into the page for the author--there really wasn't enough content to justify two separate articles.

Gerald May[edit]

Hello, SmokeyTheCat, and thank you for your contributions!

An article you worked on Gerald May, appears to be directly copied from http://www.harpercollins.com/authors/6407/Gerald_G_May/index.aspx. Please take a minute to make sure that the text is freely licensed and properly attributed as a reference, otherwise the article may be deleted.

It's entirely possible that this bot made a mistake, so please feel free to remove this notice and the tag it placed on Gerald May if necessary. MadmanBot (talk) 14:38, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Gerald May[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Gerald May requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.harpercollins.com/authors/6407/Gerald_G_May/index.aspx. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Hello SmokeyTheCat,

I wanted to leave a note to let you know that I commented on at the AFD for the article you created entitled, Christelyn Karazin. You have done an excellent job in clearly referencing the article subject. The rationale I gave for strongly keeping the article is as follows, "With all of the following sources [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], and [7], [8], [9], [10] and [11] it is quite clear that this article subject has had significant coverage in WP:RS including newspapers, magazines and other media outlets, so the article passes WP:GNG, and the article subject has far surpassed the threshold of notability.WP:N" Excellent work!

File permission problem with File:World Population Growth 1750 - 2050 sourced by the World Bank.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:World Population Growth 1750 - 2050 sourced by the World Bank.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:16, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
