Original New York Cast recording May 14, 1953[edit]

I have in front of me the 2-LP set of the Original New York Cast recording, May 14, 1953, issued as Caedmon TC 2005. This lists the six cast members and their various roles performed, and contains lengthy liner notes. I would be happy to provide Tony in Devon with any and all information via email.Milkunderwood (talk) 10:39, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Enid Blyton's Signature[edit]

Hi Tony in Devon. Just a note to thank you very much for uploading and adding that to the article. I've been considering taking a scan from a book cover but wasn't really happy that it would meet WP:NFCC so I'm delighted you've managed to kindly add that from your personal collection. Brilliant! Happy editing. Pedro :  Chat  19:56, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Request reason:

Someone or some Wiki system deleted from Commons & thus Wiki main encyclopaedia an image of a badge I scanned purchased by me over 50 years ago (hey, no copyright questions here), which promoted the image and work of Bertrand Russell. And, dear fellow Wiki folks... I'm a long-time contributor and firm supportter of all that Wiki stands for... but something has gone wrong here. Please unblock me... AND restore the image to Commons and Bertrand Russell... who also stood for free speech - as I still hope Wiki does! Tony in Devon (talk) 20:34, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

So because Commons admins have (rightfully as it seems) deleted your copyright-violating image, you decided to climb the Reichstag dressed as Spider-Man and blank the article here on Wikipedia? That looks childish. Max Semenik (talk) 20:56, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Hello, Tony in Devon. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article River Exe, you may need to consider our guidance on conflicts of interest.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. I am surprised, given how long you have been on Wikipedia, you do not see that posting your own website is a conflict of interest. Bob Re-born (talk) 21:49, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
