Thanks[edit]

Thanks. If you want, I can organize yours better, but not tonight. Maybe in a few days. I'm about to go to sleep. Also, you might want to start making sure you listen to the image tag bot up above so that you don't get blocked for not listening. I don't ever upload images, so I don't really know how to do it, but you probably should. The Ungovernable Force 05:15, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm sorry, joke articles can't stay, nor can articles about school groups. Try Uncyclopedia. They have a section for school jokes that might suit. -- sannse (talk) 19:49, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Hey, we've set up at collaboration project at Wikipedia:WikiProject Alternative Music/COTW. Feel free to suggest or vote on articles to work on. WesleyDodds 00:03, 22 June 2006 (UTC)


Confused[edit]

It seems that you have systematically gone through many pages that I have added images, with both correct copyright tags and correct source creation info, and deleted their information. You know leave me with many images begging copyright status and sources, when I had taken care of that in the first place. Please respond on what I must do. Thank you, User:Tenaciousd

Hello, Tenaciosd. The image source is supposed to be the origin of the image. That is, a url for the original place of that image, probably, from the copyright owner website (but not necessarily). I some cases, the url you provided as sources were just blog, fansites, etc. reproducing the images without any attibuttion to the real author/copyright-owner. This, unfortunately, is not acceptable.
When tagging some image witch {{Promotional}}, we need to provide url from where the image is being promotionally being distributed, not just some site using this image. Some sites, like imdb for instance, have private deals with some image providers, and as a consequence, not all promotional images on imdb are intended for wild distributtion.
But notice that in some case, the image was just a plain copyright infringement. Like Image:Mikewhite.jpg. According to the text on the "Terms and Conditions" link on the source website, that image (nor any other in the site) can't be used without explicit permssion).
If you do have any questions or objections in some specific image, don't be shy do ask me. Keep on the good work. Best regards, --Abu Badali 05:17, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
Thank you, sorry for your trouble
I understand what I have done wrong. Thank you for filling me in. Keep up the good work. User:Tenaciousd
You're wellcome. Let me know if you need any help. And sorry if I scared you with all that image warning... (we need to figure out a better way to do that) --Abu Badali 05:30, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
Your whole talk is filled with it. Skinnyweed 00:35, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Image:Pettibonraymond.gif[edit]

Hi Tenaciousd. I really like the image of Raymond Pettibon you found. Have you confirmed that this is, in fact, a promotional image, though? It's not clear to me from the 2ndthought.net website that the image is promotional, or what their relationship to the artist is. Pburka 19:20, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

RE: You bring up a good quesiton. I know it is soley on that site, and I believe the Promotional tag would fit right. However, I could be wrong. If you feel a different tag is more suitable please tell me or feel free to add it yourself. Tenaciousd
I'm afraid that there is no good tag for it. Without evidence to the contrary, we must assume that the image is protected by copyright and is not intended as a promotional image. It might be possible to contact Pettibon's agent to see if they can provide an image which could be used on Wikipedia, either under some free license or as a fair use image.

Fair use images on user space[edit]

You may want to know that, according to item #9 on Wikipedia:Fair_use#Policy, we can't claim fair use for images on user space. I notived your user page has some of these images. --Abu Badali 12:31, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

...[edit]

I know your right about the fair use on user pages issue, but could ya give it a rest. Does it really matter? "...and that the user this page belongs to may have no personal affiliation with any site other than Wikipedia itself." Doesn't this line from the user page template pretty much O.K it? If not, and if you wont have it, I will remove the images. Tenaciousd 03:30, 1 August 2006 (UTC)Tenaciousd

It's a policy. The policy matters and needs no rest. About this line, I think it has anything to do with this affair. I believe it's itended for the case your user page is copied into another website, mirroing Wikipedia (like this). It says you're personally affiliatted to Wikipedia but not to that site. --Abu Badali 05:21, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Punk music[edit]

Whats up? Hi, I'm trying to gather some more interest and support for the Wikipedia:WikiProject Punk music. Please check out the topics and lets get our WikiProject to function better. I've taken an interest in the Wikipedia:WikiProject hip hop and I consider that WikiProject to be better developed. Hopefully we can all work together to improve articles relating to punk. Also, I am trying to gather support and opinions concerning the punk house article and specifically the Theta Beta Potata article which is currently in AfD (x2) at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Theta Beta Potata (second nomination). Please check it out and voice your opinion. Xsxex 06:55, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Please leave a note[edit]

Next time you edit my page, please leave me a note so I know what happened and how I can prevent it. Thank you, Tenaciousd 22:46, 27 October 2006 (UTC)Tenaciousd.

I did. --Abu Badali 22:49, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Lyle Workman[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Lyle Workman, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to be a direct copy from http://www.m-audio.com/artists/en_us/LyleWorkman.html, and therefore a copyright violation. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL), you can comment to that effect on Talk:Lyle Workman. Then you should do one of the following:

  • Make a note on the original website that re-use is permitted under the GFDL and state at Talk:Lyle Workman where we can find that note; or
  • Send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions(at)wikimedia(dot)org or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GFDL, and note that you have done so on Talk:Lyle Workman.

It is also important that the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and that it follows Wikipedia article layout. For more information, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! – Quadell (talk) (random) 13:42, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Eva Green[edit]

Your changes to Eva Green were reverted. The comment which you removed, asking you not to insert an image which violated WP:FUC, was placed there to stop blatant violations of WP:FUC such as the one you made by adding an image to the page which is not freely-licensed. The image page itself also specifically notes that it may not be used solely to depict Eva Green. Please be more careful to avoid violations of Wikipedia image copyright and fair-use policies in the future. --Yamla 16:40, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Rock music invitation[edit]

Hello WikiProject Alternative music member.
WikiProject Alternative music, in my eyes, has proved to be successful "improving the encyclopaedic coverage of articles relating to alternative rock", and improving their quality as well. One specific example I have witnessed is The Smashing Pumpkins article. The page has gone from a mediocre work, to GA status, to FA nomination. Only appropriate, as the Pumpkins are undeniably one of the most influential alternative rock bands on the 1990's and beyond.
This is the stuff I wish to achieve with the somewhat recently ressurected WikiProject Rock music. I hope to also attract attention to rock music articles of all sorts, and hopefully change some to GA or FA status. I invite you to come join us, and not only be a member of alternative Wikipedians, but the rockin' ones as well.
Rock on.

The Shining still[edit]

Hi, I was wondering where you got the still from The Shining which you uploaded to The Shining page (Jacklloyd2.jpg) I watched the film and tried to match the frame but that particular still does not exist in the US DVD. It's a great shot, and it would be nice to get a larger resolution of the shot. Thanks. IR Mongoose

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

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Debaser.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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 00:25, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

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

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Wesleywillis.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).

Message from WikiProject Punk music[edit]

Hello!

You may be interested to know that WikiProject Punk music has recently undergone a major revitalization. Please visit the project page to see our new look and check out some of our helpful new features, such as the Assessment Department and the Collaboration of the week. There are also a number of tasks on our Things to do page that you may be interested in helping with.

We are currently holding a roll call to help gauge how many active project members we have. Please visit the project's talk page and add your signature to the roll sheet to express your continued interest in the project. Also, if you have not already done so, please take a minute to add your name to the Participants page along with a brief summary of your punk-related interests, so that other project members will be better able to collaborate with you. If you do not add your signature to the roll sheet by November 30, 2008 your name will be moved to our list of inactive members. We may also take the liberty of removing the project userbox from your userpage if it appears there, to prevent you from automatically appearing in Category:WikiProject Punk music members. Of course you are free to rejoin the project and re-add the userbox at any time if you would like to become active in the project again.

Thank you and we hope you will continue to support WikiProject Punk music!

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.
