Orphaned non-free media (Image:1008998.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:1008998.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. BetacommandBot (talk) 20:33, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Deleted pages[edit]

Deleted pages that are recreated can/should be deleted on sight by administrators. I assume you are referencing the article Hood Surgeon? If you place the following tag on the article, an admin will delete it: {{Db-repost}}. The article is currently being reviewed by admins.--CastAStone//(talk) 17:21, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the help castastone.You cleared that up for me. Have a nicee day :) wiki_is_unique (talk) 13:44, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Rap and Hip Hop[edit]

Why did you undo my edits? I was only trying to maintain a strict NPOV environment. Anytime where the words rap or hip hop come up in an article we have ppl making unneeded commentary? wiki_is_unique (talk) 13:54, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Souljaman. Thanks for writing.
I agree that rap-related articles are subject to some biased and often abusive edits. About 2/3 of what gets added to the Gangsta rap is vandalism or spam, and gets removed immediately.
That said, Discussion page comments should not be deleted as long as they are relevant to editing the article. Editing for NPOV applies to the article, not the discussion page. Yes, Bennelloitt's comment included some stupe assumptions — in matters like this Wikipedians are supposed to assume good faith and stay civil, so deleting other editors' comments is in bad form. I undeleted that comment not because I agreed with it, but because the editor who removed it was not the editor who posted it.
If you're interested, Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines has information on what's considered acceptable on Discusion pages. / edg 17:36, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Thank you edgarde. It just seems that as long as the word hip hop comes up that the article becomes targeted for some reason. I will stick to those guidelines though. Thanks have a nice day ;] wiki_is_unique (talk) 02:56, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

I have another question. Could I propose that the Soulja Boy and the Crank Dat articles be deleted because of people who just come to either vandalize,fill the article with their opinions and fill the talk page with ridiculious statements not related to the articles. I also believe that the article itself is becoming an attack article towards Soulja Boy and his song. wiki_is_unique (talk) 13:53, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Crank That (Soulja Boy) and Soulja Boy are well-sourced, well-organized and informative articles on reasonably notable subjects. Per WP:PROBLEM, these would not be deleted. I have requested semi-protection (blocking edits by anonymous editors) for Crank That (Soulja Boy), which seems to be a regular target of IP vandalism.
I'll keep an eye on Soulja Boy's article, but the disputable information in the Criticism section seems well-sourced. Perhaps citations can be found emphasizing Soulja Boy's strengths as an artist. WP:ALBUM#Professional_reviews has a decent list of review sites.
Surprised to see the single is still getting so much vandalism. / edg 15:19, 20 December 2007 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Featuring Eazy E.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Featuring Eazy E.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. 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 it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 19:28, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

One WikiDragon to another[edit]

I was playing around with the "what links here" and noted that your userpage linked to mine. I found under the User Pages I Frequent A Lot that I was listed and just wondered why, as there's no commentary for the reasons listing. I note that you are a fellow WikiDragon and thought that may play a part in it. Anyway, firstly "Hi!!!" and secondly, "Why?"
That's all. VigilancePrime (talk) 06:37, 12 February 2008 (UTC) :-)

Civility[edit]

Hi, I noticed you have written material on and shown an interest in civility on wikipedia. I have created a poll page to gauge community feelings on how civility is managed in practice currently at Wikipedia:Civility/Poll, so input from as many people as possible is welcomed.
