The out of context example of rival condescendents[edit]


Hello, Trakon, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

As Driller thriller and I have been discussing, some information is redundantly available and referenced on Wikipedia. Or this is an example of how content forking can be an annoyance. I could expand if anyone ever cares to know... Anyway, because I am vain, I do not want people to think I am misinformed or devoid of some knowledge or ability to find or retain such knowledge (unless it proves to be to my advantage or if it were true, of course). --Trakon 02:24, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Sunstone circuits.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Sunstone circuits.png. 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. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 19:33, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Well, I was wondering if the statute of limitations would win out, but it looks like someone finally cared enough with only about one year left. Honestly, it doesn't bother me one bit and I had completely forgotten, so delete away. Trakon (talk) 02:10, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
Looking back at the article the image is related to, it's clear that I did not care much at the time either. As I recall I had been reading articles about how Sun and Sunstone were bashing it out over the use of the "sun" in their names. I think at the time I thought it was going to be a bigger deal in the press, but nothing really ever came of it and then the whole deal with Oracle... you get the picture.

Deletion nomination notification[edit]

FYI... I have nominated the article on Sunstone Circuits for deletion. As you were the article's creator, I thought I would do you the courtesy of a notification, so you can be part of the discussion about it. The relevant discussion is at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sunstone Circuits. Blueboar (talk) 18:46, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Yeah thanks for the note. I reread the talk page. I've been okay with removing it for a while now. --Trakon (talk) 17:43, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Sunstone circuits.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Sunstone circuits.png. 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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:05, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

All of this redundant "thanks" from a bot. It's more fun to talk to myself in front of the internet. --Trakon (talk) 23:40, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
