Nomination of The Perrys for deletion[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A discussion has begun about whether the article The Perrys, which you created or to which you contributed, should be deleted. While contributions are welcome, an article may be deleted if it is inconsistent with Wikipedia policies and guidelines for inclusion, explained in the deletion policy.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Perrys until a consensus is reached, and you are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

You may edit the article during the discussion, including to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 02:37, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Karenpnr.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Karenpnr.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 18:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Animatronic quartet at the SGMA Museum.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Nomination of Dixie Echoes for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Dixie Echoes is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dixie Echoes until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. I am One of Many (talk) 23:14, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Singing Cookes[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 Singing Cookes requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. 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 belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — 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 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 that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Whpq (talk) 15:23, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Sogospelman. You have new messages at Whpq's talk page.

Non-free rationale for File:Klaudt 3.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Klaudt 3.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 21:21, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Ronistoneman.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Ronistoneman.jpg. 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. —Bkell (talk) 21:32, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:Happygoodmanfamily1.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Happygoodmanfamily1.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 21:39, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Humanwolves.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Humanwolves.jpg. 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, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 21:41, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Reddy.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Reddy.gif. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created 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 in|article name}} 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. —Bkell (talk) 21:45, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Sogospelman.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Sogospelman.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 21:47, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Palmetto State Quartet, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material.

Unspecified source/license for Image:The Hinsons.jpg[edit]

Copyright-excl.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:The Hinsons.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. Even if you created the image yourself, you still need to release it so Wikipedia can use it. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

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

This is an automated notice by MifterBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. --MifterBot (TalkContribsOwner) 23:28, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:100 0637.jpg[edit]

File:100 0637.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:Mule (1).jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:Mule (1).jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 17:43, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Sogospelman! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to insure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. if you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,714 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Articles for deletion nomination of Crossroads Music[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Crossroads Music, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Crossroads Music (2nd nomination). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Codf1977 (talk) 21:04, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Deindex.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Deindex.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.


Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 05:39, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Picture190.jpg.

Fair use rationale for Image:Scpromo.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Scpromo.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 18:17, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Book categories[edit]

Greetings, Terrillwhite. I have removed Where the Red Fern Grows from the category 1961 books into which you had placed it. In general, an article doesn't been to go in both one category and its subcategory (see Categorization guidelines); 1961 novels are already encompassed by 1961 books, so putting it also in the books category would be redundant.

Unspecified source for Image:Michaepose.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Michaepose.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey 10:47, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Samuel Worcester[edit]

Hi, I am author of "New Echota" and other articles of Wikipedia and soon-to-be-author of "Cherokee Millionaire and his son". You can check me by User:Cculber007. I was going to work on Samuel Worcester but it looks you beat me to it. I added references (required by Wikipedia policy), legal pictures, and others. I have more information which I will add later. I have a lot of research papers from New Echota where I lived about 2 miles away from. They have original diary of Samuel Worcester and original letter of his descendant from Oklahoma. I hope you do not mind if I being co-author of your article. I have a lot of information including his family and Cherokees. You forgot about important two cases that Worcester was involved. I need to let you know that Native Americans dislike the word "Indian" after they blamed Christopher Columbus named after Indians who are really from India so do not use that word too many. I am 1/3 of Creek Indians. Yeah Cherokees hate Creeks as much as Georgia took the lands of Creeks. I wrote Georgia Land Lottery about that.I am still working on Chief Vann House, Rome, Georgia, and others. Martha Berry museum asked me to do few articles for Berry College, Berry Museum/Oak Hill, and others so I will be busy. My pictures I made for New Echota has been copied to Poland and Wikipedia's Native American system. I hope I don't be too much famous by Wikipedia. Cculber007 10:03, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Advice about this Talk issue[edit]

I notice you keep removing comments like I did few years ago. One of moderators (Admins) who runs Wikipedia warned me but they suggested me to move all coments to other page called talk archive (see Talk Archive). They wanted to keep comments. I restored comments from "history" on headline of Wikipedia and moved to my new page called Culby's Talk Archive). . There is a copy of the message from them - "Removing comments from talk pages. Please note that it is considered bad form to remove content from your talk page. If it is getting too long, you can move the old comments to an archive but you should never blank them, as it may be construed as trying to hide or avoid criticism. Stifle 15:44, 17 February 2006 (UTC)". You can create new page by press "move" the page then add link to "TerrillWhite's Talk Archive" A lot of experience Wikipedians did. We have to follow their policy. If you need my help to restore comments, let me know. Do me favor? Will you go to "E-mail this user" on left (bottom) box when you are in my talk page because I have many issues to discuss about Cherokees and Creeks. When you press that "E-mail this user", it will automatically send to my real email. I know you have not set up your email perference yet. I thought it will be much easy to save time and Wikipedia's space. I only do for New Echota and others that are in Georgia but I need more answers from Oklahoma and Cherokees. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you for comment. New Echota staff were very helpful to me with my research. One of them is Cherokee. I hope I help you with some friendly advices. Let me know if you need a help. "Cherokees and Creeks are friends together as they used to be live in Georgia before the Europeans came." I hope I have time to update articles including Samuel Worcester and create my userbox for my user page. Cculber007 15:13, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:05John Stamos.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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.

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box.

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:

Promptly changed this. Somehow I forgot to add the licensing to it when I added it. I personally took this picture. T. White 13:27, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

kahneeta[edit]

If you've been there, (which i'm assuming you have) yu would notice the warm springs reservation is a huge desert and kahneeta is in the middle of nowhere. It should get a rewrite though. There was some lady user that works a lot on Oregon articles, if you look in the page history ask her what to do. I'm not an expert in the field. Thanks for asking though. Also, its better to put messages at the bottom of my talk page, because I never check the top, except when archiving.Bakaman Bakatalk 05:11, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

nice mess u made kid[edit]

re yr funny little game with Roger Bennett: 1st u don't just randomly stuff around by moving already existing pages like that: what u should have done is created a proper disambiguation page, linking ur original page & ur oh so important musician 2nd as it is, u haven't even cleaned up, could u please fix the page u moved, (it isn't a disambiguation page) & then fix up all the hanging links u left (it isn't enough to have them pointing to the current disambiguation page) & fix up the mess with the two talk pages thnx heaps kid, pls learn some mannersBsnowball 19:51, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

moving[edit]

maybe i got carried away, but i think what u did was a little rude for future reference please do not undo moves by copying & pasting like that, it gets rid of the edit history, or leaves it at another page. sorry about going off Bsnowball 10:43, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Michaelfishman.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Michaelfishman.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. 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 19:22, 3 January 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Angr 19:22, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Img gh1 II.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Img gh1 II.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

Helping out with the Unassessed Wikipedia Biographies[edit]

Seeing that you are an active member of the WikiBiography Project, I was wondering if you would help lend a hand in helping us clear out the amount of [unassessed articles] tagged with {{WPBiography}}. Many of them are of stub and start class, but a few are of B or A caliber. Getting a simple assessment rating can help us start moving many of these biographies to a higher quality article.

Your RfA[edit]

Sorry it didn't work out - as you can tell, RfA standards can be quite stringent. I hope this doesn't discourage you too much, as you're a good contributor. If you do wish to run for adminship in the future in order to help out, try participating in project space and vandal patrol. All the best, and if you have any questions, go ahead and ask me on my talkpage, I'll try my best to answer them. I'll try to notify someone to close your RfA properly. All the best, riana_dzasta 13:03, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, don't worry about it. Adminship is no big deal. Just because you didn't get promoted doesn't mean that you're contributions aren't appreciated. Have a look at the admin's reading list; it's what all admins need to know. Also try contributing at articles for deletion, miscellany for deletion, speedy deletion and if you vote on other people's requests for adminship's (or just read them if you don't want to vote) then you can see why people get turned down (or accepted). I hope that not being promoted hasn't discouraged you from editing. Try again in maybe 3-4 months, then your RFA is much more likely to succeed. You can ask me for help if you want, if I can't help I will make a bad joke to cover that up, and point you in the direction of someone who can. Well, have fun editing :), hope to see you round.

Singing Echos[edit]

Terrill Thanks for your edit of the Singing Echos. If you are going to be the editor of that page then we need to find cites for the content. If you could please cite the page it would be greatly appreciated. I have put cite tags near everything that needs to be cited. [1] If you need help, please let me know by leaving a message on my talk page. Thank you. Junebug52 5:10, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Terrill, thanks for your attention to the article. I appreciate the work you have done to cite the sources. I also see the e mail that you sent to the Singing Echoes. Be aware that we need to ask them if they have some factual proof of the items we need verified. We cannot just have them confirm the facts, we have to see the facts posted somewhere notable that we can use as a valid source. Again, if I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know. Don't worry about the ramblings, I live my life the way LOL. Junebug52 10:41, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Charlieodonnell.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Charlieodonnell.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Cynthia Clawson[edit]

Hey, thought you might be interested that I edited the Cynthia Clawson article for neutral point of view and tone, and tried to make her a little more encyclopedic. There is tons of room to fill out her biography--all I have is a little spotty, mostly from her website, and most of that is not truly encyclopedic type information. If you know more, go for it--I can't find her birthday, marriage time line, and am spotty about her recording history. I got her discography as best as I could. I think that some of her seminal albums (You're Welcome Here, Forever, Immortal) could use their own pages. I checked out your website, BTW, and was glad to see a smiling photo of you...why not include one of those on this page? Anyway, Lord bless.Transcendentalstate 21:53, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Hartbochner.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Hartbochner.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image 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 the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy.

Lois Nadean Smith[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Lois Nadean Smith, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. Deiz talk 13:24, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:LindaThompson.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:LindaThompson.jpg. 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. 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. Rettetast (talk) 12:33, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Perrys 8x10color large.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Perrys 8x10color large.jpg. 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 'image' 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 "Image" 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. BJBot (talk) 12:08, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
