Orphaned non-free media (File:3 vallees.jpg)
Thanks for uploading File:3 vallees.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).
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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:07, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Thats not a consensus. Those are suggested ideas from JULY OF 2009 for the nickname and the intro which did'nt get voted on nor did anything much change. Similiar suggstion for the article are here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Michael_Jackson#This_article_is_in_a_sad_state. We are now in closing NOVEMBER 2009. If you feel like King of Pop should'nt be in the first paragraph due to it being "inapropriate" then it has to be changed in every article with a similiar first paragraph make ups as well not just Michael Jackson.
Just to let you know that the Featured Picture File:Temple Square, Salt Lake City, 1899 retouched.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on June 9, 2013. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2013-06-09. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 22:39, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

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.

Tom dl, MOS:GNL (which is a guideline, not a policy) does not mean that phrasing like "his or her" cannot or should not be used. As the Gender-neutral language article states, wording like "he or she" is considered gender-neutral language as well. And as the Singular they article states, use of singular they is debated. Some style guides discourage it. Furthermore, as MOS:GNL states, there are valid cases where gendered language should be used, such as if the topic is mainly or always described with gendered language by the literature. That stated, from what I've seen of your changes so far, your application of MOS:GNL has been fine. Yes, statistics do show that males commit significantly more murder and sexual assault than females do, but we generally shouldn't be stating "he" or "she" (meaning just one or the other) in place of "person." Not unless we are adhering to how a specific topic is usually defined/described. I do want to state that a case such as this one was undoubtedly a him. The history of rape is clear.
