If there any administrators reading this, can you please do something about user BMT. I have not been vandalising the Ben Thompson page. I added a section called Legend and it is cited from reliable sources and it is relevant. But for some peculiar reason he not only removes it but gives me vandalism warnings. I am only trying to maintain a NPOV.--TheEditor20 16:21, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

JHMM13 if you add another welcome message to my page I will issue you with a vandalism warning. You are aware that I do not wish to be bombarded with welcoming messages and therefore I think such an action constitutes vandalism.--TheEditor20 19:03, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Ben Thompson[edit]

I had come to the article on Ben Thompson by way of 3RR. I'll take a look. -- Kendrick7talk 17:59, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. Also look at this 1

BMT removed my comments from the 3RR noticeboard! --TheEditor20 18:01, 10 February 2007 (UTC)


Regarding reversions[1] made on February 10 2007 to Ben Thompson[edit]

Warning

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. Cbrown1023 talk 18:14, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

WP:RFC/BIO[edit]

Hi there. I just wanted to let you know that I reverted your comment at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies. Once a request has been made, discussion should occur at the article's talk page, not at the RfC request page. ShadowHalo 09:40, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Rum boogie cafe.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Rum boogie cafe.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 20:12, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Mbeki source[edit]

Hi, sorry if I was too quick to revert your contribution on the origin of the name Govan. Do you have a direct URL for the article you are referencing? If possible, the URL should directly to the article. Otherwise, the URL should be removed, as it's not very helpful to refer to the lexisnexis home page. (It's perfectly acceptable to include a reference with no a URL.) Lastly, this story would seem to be relevant to the page on Govan Mbeki but not really to his son Thabo Mbeki? Regards, Zaian 20:11, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

PS is LexisNexis a subscription service, or can anyone use it to look up articles? Zaian 20:20, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I've cleaned up the reference on the page Govan Mbeki, and added the source text to the talk page. Zaian 10:44, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Welcome message[edit]

Thanks for your welcome message! I was simply writing you back in response to this comment you left on my page. I felt it was unreasonably rude, and regardless of your claims of vandalism, I seriously doubt a discussion on a talk page, especially one spurred by such a hostile response to a welcome message, could be counted as vandalism anywhere on Wikipedia. Any time you need help in the future, please don't hesitate to stop by and leave a comment at the bottom of my talk page. If you would like to continue with this, please take it to WP:AIV and suggest to them to ban me for my incessant "vandalism." JHMM13  03:06, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Move of Fifth Gear[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to drop you a message explaining why I reverted your move. There are hundreds of wikilinks that point to Fifth Gear. By redirecting Fifth Gear to the transmission article, people are sent to the wrong page. Moves usually should be discussed first. If there is a consensus, move the page (leave the default redirect as is), fix all of the wikilinks and then redirect the page to the new destination. This keeps all the wikilinks in tact. I am not sure if Fifth Gear is even worth the move as there is a notice at the top of the Fifth Gear article on where to look if the person is looking for the fifth gear of a car. If you have any questions, just drop me a message. --PS2pcGAMER (talk) 10:51, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Commercial use of Image:Aviva Tower.jpg[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Aviva Tower.jpg, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Aviva Tower.jpg is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only" or "used with permission for use on Wikipedia only" which was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19 or is not used in any articles (CSD I3).

If you created this media file and want to use it on Wikipedia, you may re-upload it (or amend the image description if it has not yet been deleted) and use the license {{GFDL-self}} to license it under the GFDL, or {{cc-by-sa-2.5}} to license it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, or use {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain.

If you did not create this media file but want to use it on Wikipedia, there are two ways to proceed. First, you may choose one of the fair use tags from this list if you believe one of those fair use rationales applies to this file. Second, you may want to contact the copyright holder and request that they make the media available under a free license.

If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. This bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Image:Aviva Tower.jpg itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. If you have any questions about what to do next or why your image was nominated for speedy deletion please ask at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thanks. --Android Mouse Bot 2 10:12, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:I'm_In_Need.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:I'm_In_Need.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. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

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 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 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 non-free media 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. Alpta 20:37, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:I'm In Need(overture).jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:I'm In Need(overture).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 07:20, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
