West Ranch High School[edit]

Hello Sparrowman980,

I just wanted to break the ice to let you know I am not trying to win this war. I am just trying to make it right. Besides the website, what other sources are there to back your position?

I have not found one thing that indicates that West Ranch is in Stevenson Ranch except their website. I believe this to be incorrect. How does West Ranch use a Stevenson Ranch city when they are surrounded by homes in Valencia, and they post office refers to them as Valencia?

I have resided and been employed in the area since 1983. What back ground do you have that allows you to over ride my research?

Thanks for you help and clarity Lasportsnut (talk) 22:46, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

File:DSCN12211.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:EurekaTower DSCN12211.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:EurekaTower DSCN12211.jpg]].

An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]

Trophy.png

As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 05:21, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Img qa20 1944.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Img qa20 1944.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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

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 08:18, 23 September 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Salavat (talk) 08:18, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia edit training on the Gold Coast[edit]

I will be presenting a Wikipedia edit training session on the Gold Coast on Tuesday 25 June, as part of the partnership between Wikimedia Australia and the State Library of Queensland. 10+ new editors will be editing their first article at the session and past experience has shown it’s helpful if there can be at least 2 people present to assist with answering questions. No public speaking is required, just one-on-one assistance with new editors. Your name was mentioned as a possibility as it is believed you live in that region. If you are able to assist, please get in touch with me, preferably by email kerry.raymond@wikimedia.org.au Kerry (talk) 06:05, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
