Headline text[edit]

So your telling me if a terrorist is arrested it's not a terrorist incident? All of you have got it wrong just because people never listed arrests in the older list's doesn't mean they can't be listed in 2010, but I'm not listing anything on that page anymore, there is not co-operation whatsoever and usually always arguments.

Eritrea-Ethiopia border skirmish[edit]

May I suggest that you withdraw your proposed deletion of this article? Its clear that your proposal will not pass consensus, and you are wrong: It is not a claim made solely by Eritrea: Ethiopia states that 25 Eritrean soldiers were killed in a rebel attack, and that this was a cover-up by the Eritrean goverment, so its clear that something happened over there. Ah, well, nothing new in the horn of Africa.--RM (Be my friend) 03:32, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

The DYK police didn't like the 252 number as it differed from the BBC number. I found two reports here and here that say it was 250 which is probably an estimate. So I suggested another ALT that says around 250. What do you think?-- Esemono (talk) 09:38, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Action of 30 March 2010[edit]

Ive created a basic shell for the article. It seems to be one of the largest actions against the pirates so far. It looks like the seychellian vessel engaged a captured dhow in combat, sunk it and rescued the crew. Then on the way back to port it was attacked by 3 more pirate vessels, sunk two of them and then finally made it back to port. Feel free to expand it. I'm busy today but will likely work on it a great deal tommorow.XavierGreen (talk) 21:44, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Timeline of the War on Terror[edit]

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Timeline of the War on Terror. 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 Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Timeline of the War on Terror. 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.

Proposed deletion of Nicola De Martino[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Nicola De Martino has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This appears to be a WP:BLP1E. Aside from the suicide attempt, he appears to be a non-notable activist.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. AniMate 01:19, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Neo-Nazism in Croatia[edit]

Hi. Regarding your recent edit to this article, I'd like to note, first, that one of the pictures in question has been nominated for deletion on commons (by me) and that the request remains to be dealt with. If you object to its deletion on commons, the appropriate thing to do would be to take up the issue there. In my judgment, those pictures of non-notable individuals (including two children) are patently unethical and there is no case for their restoration - we don't want to create a situation where someone can say to either child, "Oh, you're that neo-Nazi Croatian kid with his picture on Wikipedia". Second, please note that your edit undid two of my edits to the article, and that one of them had nothing to do with the pictures. This edit simply changed the article to be consistent with the manual of style, and if you look through the article's history you'll see that its main effect was to undo an earlier change of mine and restore the wording to what it was before.

ive helped organise your article along a bit, but it needs some more cleaning. a couple of sources for the background part i read today, (ill look for them later) or perhaps the links would be good).

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for widespread copyright violations.

Nick-D (talk) 10:23, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

.

Following up on the above warnings, I've just conducted some random checks of your recent edits and have found that a high proportion of them are text copied and pasted with no or only minor changes from news websites. This is totally unacceptable and you have been warned previously against this behaviour. Example diffs are: [1], [2], [3], [4]. These are from just the last few days, and in light of the warnings you've received for this over the last few months I've got no doubt that there are many more. As you cannot be trusted to not violate copyright I've set the block duration to indefinite. Nick-D (talk) 10:23, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Further examples of blatant copyright violations: [5], [6], [7] Nick-D (talk) 11:02, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you Lihaas. NickD is right, copyvios are always bad. My copyvio edits were made because of two reasons: no time for rewordings or as a mean to be initial edits and be reworded or better - expanded by others so the copyvio would disappear. NickDs voluntary work of checking those edits is worth of every praise.--DAI (Δ) 12:50, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi there - I suspect we are going to need to do a systemic work through of the articles you've created and your other contributions as I have found some more lifting of words in other articles.

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

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Flag HOS.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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 04:03, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Irbil.01.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Irbil.01.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.
