Microsoft Campus Agreement[edit]

ha, sorry about the late welcome, i didn't really check how long you'd been on. I listed it on pages needing expansion because I think it is a good article. I was thinking along the lines of benefits for the campus and microsoft. Now mostly it has student centered data. Unfortunately I don't have much info about the reasons for signing it as I also mostly come at it from a student pov. Solitude also added a list of participating schools, so that's good.

I can be of more help on your other question though :). Go to "Preferences", then "User data" then "Your nickname", there you can change your nickname display for signatures to whatever you'd like, and add links. That is also how some people have the little pictures, different color names and things. It doesn't change your actual username just the text that gets added with you do the ~~~ thing. - [[User:Cohesion|cohesion ]] 08:32, Sep 26, 2004 (UTC)

sg episode standard[edit]

actually the episodes "the Tok'ra" are both on one page as well (go see).

the standard is that if two episodes have the same name then they go in one article (used ubiquitously, and decided early on in the wikiproject's inception [discussion probably now archived]).

so "The Eye" is seperate to "The Storm", "Avalon" (ps 1 and 2) are in one article and "Origin" in another, and likewise "The Seige" should refer to all three parts.-- Alfakim --  talk  02:28, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

AfD Google Policy[edit]

Usually, I'll vote "Delete" if there are under hits on the subject. To merit a "Keep" vote, an article must have over 200 hits and must also be notable according to WP:N (and related pages such as WP:WEB and WP:BIO). Voting "Redirect" is if the article merits a "Delete" but is closely related to a subject that has substantial amount of content. I should include this in my policy...hm.

pratical joke[edit]

While I do not believe that you have to remove it, I would like to ask that you do, seeing as it is very irritating to most Wikipedians. Thanks you. American Patriot 1776 18:04, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Personally, I think it is rather presumptious of you to presume to speak on behalf of most wikipedians, but whatever. It's been removed. :\ TerraFrost 19:47, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure where you meant to put this...[edit]

... but this edit of yours was to the talk page for discussing the Village pump; I suspect you meant to put it on one of the six village pump pages, since it is not about the VP. - Jmabel | Talk 21:54, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

thanks for the tip! i've placed it in a more appropraite location and deleted my comments on that talk page TerraFrost 00:37, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

The One Ring Article[edit]

You thought my starting paragraph overplayed the power of the ring. I wrote all of that section Powers of the Ring and no one has really bothered to change it except for minor grammar corrections. I admit, I got the illusions of the ring mixed up with what it actually does. I believe the rest after that is fairly accurate, though. Feel free to change it to something more accurate that reflects what the ring can do.--24.130.125.164 15:05, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikification of Apothecary on James Kim article[edit]

Hi and thanks for your comment. I probably should have put this in the discussion page before just unwikifying it, so I understand your concern. I removed it because 1) Apothecary is a common word which should be known by anyone familiar with the English language. We can't link every word just because some people might not know its meaning. Articles would have every other word linked. Those who don't know the meaning of words can look them up themselves. 2) The Church Street Apothecary does not even fit the definition of an Apothecary, which is essentially a pharmacy or drug store that prepares and dispenses prescripton drugs. The Church Street Apothecary, according to its own website is, "a provider of holistic, organic, and international health and beauty products for the entire family." That is not an apothecary.

I do understand that there is still an issue with possible other readers not knowing what an apothecary is and also it might be useful to clarify this. So I'd suggest we modify the article something like this: "The Kims owned the Church Street Apothecary, a retail estblishment in San Francisco specialzing in holistic, organic, and international health and beauty products." Crunch 18:06, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't mean to be condescending and I understand some people are learning English as a second language, but again this is an English language article and I stand by my statement that Apothecary is a fairly common word in the English language. If we start linking any word that might be unknown to non-native speakers, we'll be linking every word which is against Wikipedia policy. Wikipedia is not a dictionary. And, again, the link to the Apothecary article does absolutely nothing to inform the reader about what the Kims' store is about. Crunch 00:31, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Replicator-ship.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Replicator-ship.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).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Hi there, I am a research student from the National University of Singapore and I wish to invite you to do an online survey about Wikipedia.

I saw your attempts te clear the Dobie center page of the reference to who set the fire, and especially the link to this girl's phone number etc. I would like to let you know your changes have been undone.

removal of material from the Lewis Libby talk page[edit]

You removed my question from the Lewis Libby because "[the talk page] is not a discussion forum."

Well, for one, it is a discussion forum. A discussion forum dedicated to improving the article. And for two, I, personally, believe my question is relevant to the article. If people on the right have criticized Bushes actions for not granting Lewis Libby, it should be mentioned in the article. Maybe you should be a little less trigger happy when it comes to removing material, next time...

In any event, do you have any objections to my readding my question? TerraFrost 19:44, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes. Please follow Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. Your question is inappropriate. It does not concern "making improvements to the article." It is a question pertaining only to the subject of the article, not to impoving the article. I moved the content that you placed on my talk page to your own talk page. I do not think that you should re-add your question to the talk page of the article: Talk: Lewis Libby. It is not a discussion forum on any other matter than making improvements to the article. Your question is not relevant to that. --NYScholar 20:18, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
From the talkpage header: "This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Lewis Libby article. This is not a forum for general discussion about the article's subject." Please consult that and the other headers. Such questions are not permitted in articles by WP:BLP. Please read the policy page and follow the related links to other policies and guidelines posted in it. Thanks. --NYScholar 20:21, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
Please stop posting comments relating to Talk:Lewis Libby on my personal talk page. Thank you. --NYScholar 21:00, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
I replied to your new comment on Talk:Lewis Libby. Thank you for understanding. --NYScholar 21:16, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Lagrangesatellite.jpg.

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.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Bombadil.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Bombadil.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) 04:21, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Gordon Brothers Group[edit]

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Gordon Brothers Group, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Speedy deletion nomination of Cousins Properties[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Cousins Properties requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Cousins Properties[edit]

I saw your discussion with Malleus Fatuorum, and upon looking into it, I've restored the article, and added a reference that should make it immune to speedy deletion under A7. I've no real stake in whether someone PROD's it, AFD's it, etc.

Note that in the form it was when it was tagged and deleted, it did not make an assertion of notability, and an A7 speedy was not ureasonable. The easy way to get this undeleted would have been to politely raise the issue with the deleting admin, and tell them that if it was undeleted you would add such an assertion. Would have saved you quite a bit of typing and arguing. --Floquenbeam (talk) 18:02, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Microsoft Campus Agreement[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.
Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Microsoft Campus Agreement requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Misterdiscreet (talk) 05:13, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Lakeline Mall and others[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated articles are Lakeline Mall, Microsoft Campus Agreement. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to the relevant discussion pages: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lakeline Mall for Lakeline Mall, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Microsoft Campus Agreement for Microsoft Campus Agreement. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:06, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

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

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Radagast.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) 05:42, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

Is that the logo? Or is it a photograph of a T-shirt? If it's the later, and you took it, I'm not sure we need to use a FU tag, there might be something more liberal. Maury Markowitz (talk) 10:54, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Naqahdah-collage.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Naqahdah-collage.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) 12:05, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of OATS (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on OATS (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
