Orphaned non-free media (Image:Countvoncount.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Countvoncount.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) 12:20, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Okay, joke's over on Muppet Wiki[edit]

You've had your fun, now it's time to stop being silly and lift this silly indefintie block you have on me over on the Muppet Wiki, what makes it silly is the reason "'.". I can tell why you're not a school principal, you'd probably expel every student for a reason like that. Now before you deny it stating that I'd just post nonsense, or unrelated information there, I won't, in fact when I discoveed the block I was just about to post a related bit of information on the Monty Python page, I'm not telling you what it is you'll have to wait and see. --AKR619 (talk) 06:57, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Marcus Clarke (puppeteer)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Marcus Clarke (puppeteer) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article is edited by Marcus Clarke in a self promotional manner, with no references whatsoever

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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. --palmiped |  Talk  22:32, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Benedict Cumberbatch lead[edit]

Hello! I have just an immediate concern about Cumberbatch's page. Its leading paragraphs were changed and it indicated that "his parents were actors". I am just alarmed by this sentence as his parents are not dead nor are they retired from acting. There are a lot of sources to support this. I also think that the first paragraph is poorly written and the previous version is better as it lists everything from theatre to radio that made him notable and worthy of a Wikipedia page. I do think that's the purpose of the lead paragraph so that's why I am sending you this request. Thank you very much and I hope you can make changes immediately to lessen misinformation. Thank you again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 177.67.82.39 (talk) 19:44, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Why Toughpigs?[edit]

Hello,

I just noticed your edit on the Make America Great Again (MAGA) article. I like pigs a lot! I was wondering if you do too, since your user name is Toughpigs. If you have a chance, please tell me why your user name is Toughpigs? Thank you for your work for Wikimedia Foundation. OINK!--FeralOink (talk) 03:32, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi FeralOink: My user name is based on ToughPigs, a Muppet fan website that I created back in 2001; the "pigs" refers to Miss Piggy. :) -- -- Danny (talk) 16:49, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Why is there something? article ; Keep or Delete?[edit]

Hi Danny please could you review Why is there something rather than nothing?, and give a 'Keep' or otherwise view? All best User:JCJC777

Thanks for the clarification on Jimbo re: Turkey[edit]

Hi Mr. Pig,

Yes, it's probably best to say Jimbo doesn't really have the authority to 'censor' us Wikipedians for Turkey's sake, and thank God for that. Still, most non-Wikipedians probably would prefer to exist in the "blissful fiction" that Jimbo would have such an authority. Obviously the Turkey article is no place to be explaining that small "administrative detail" to the public.

Still, most Wikipedians live in the "blissful fiction" that our little "encyclopedia editors paradise" is somehow ultimately self-supporting. In reality, it only exists due to much difficult, careful, and costly legal, technical, and social engineering work done by people like Jimbo behind the scenes. All of the many forces that have fortunately aligned themselves to enable you and I to talk about this here, are mind-boggling. I count myself very privileged to be a part of what was originally just Jimbo's little experiment here. If you go way way back to some of the very earliest versions of Wikipedia, you will see Jimbo patiently encouraging custom bead sales people, of all things, to please give us articles describing their wonderful homemade custom beads, in Wikipedia! No shit!!

I see you've been around since '05, and I salute you for your sticktuitiveness for all of these years!

I came in '04 and things have changed much since then, I'm sure you'll agree.

Don't know why I went off on this tangent, thanks for your edits.

Scott P. (talk) 22:04, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Ha, I'd never heard about the custom beads before; that's funny. So many things have changed since then... :) Thanks for your note. -- -- Danny (talk) 23:20, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
