File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Wais4 example question.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Wais4 example question.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you did not create this work entirely 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. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

Please add this information by editing the image description page. If the necessary information is not added within the next seven 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 also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 07:43, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

You cannot copyright license that which has no copyright. Did you not see the comment to file? It explicitly states: "This is a single questionnaire item which is considered a functional device and thus has no copyright (see 37 C.F.R. 202.1(b) and (c))." I find it a little hard to believe that this issue has never come up before, especially since, as you say, "Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously." Anyhow, maybe you can get Wikipedia's administrators to add this option to the license menu, but no need to rush on my account, it's not a big deal to me either way.--TDJankins (talk) 08:35, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

History Section on SAT Page[edit]

Hi, TDJankins. That's a reasonable suggestion, thank you, perhaps the tie-in is clearer to me than the reader. My thinking is: This is one part of the article where a discussion of somewhat peripheral information is hard to avoid; after all, it concerns the history of the SAT and (as in particular, the few sentences in question) how it came to be, before the SAT itself existed.

GMAT[edit]

Hey, TDJankins. You mistakenly reverted my changes to the Graduate Management Admission Test article believing it to be WP:Vandalism. I assure you that it was not Vandalism. These edits were attempts to improve the article's readability and remove trademark symbols. If you look at the Page History, you can see Edit Summaries that detail the edits made to the article. In this instance, mine states: Tightened WP:LEAD. Removed trivial, HOWTO and unencyclopedic details to improve the readability of the article. Removed duplicate wikilink. Removed trademark symbols (see MOS:TMRULES)..

If you'd like to discuss particular edits, changes or removals, I'm more than happy to do so here, on my Talk page or on the article's Talk page. The last is probably the most appropriate location. Please ping me if you do continue this conversation so I can join.

Additionally, if you're interested in doing more work to remove Vandalism to Wikipedia, I'd be more than happy to answer any questions. I have spent quite a bit of time and effort removing Vandalism and have used a couple different methods/tools and would be happy to discuss them. My first recommendation would be to check out WP:Counter-Vandalism_Unit. Thanks for working to improve Wikipedia! Stesmo (talk) 19:53, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
