Uploading images

Is it true that only admins can upload pictures? Bballlova99 (talk) 01:54, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Replied on your userpage --Twinzor (talk) 02:01, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
But look at this[1]Bballlova99 (talk) 02:03, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
What do you see there? I see the normal image upload form. --Twinzor (talk) 02:06, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
For me it says "The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups [[ Wikipedia:Autoconfirmed users]], Administrators." What should I do -- Bballlova99 (talk) 02:10, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Ah yes, uploading does indeed require you to be autoconfirmed. Your account will be automatically autoconfirmed once it's 4 days old, and you have made at least 10 edits. There is no way to speed this process, you'll just have wait it out. This is required to prevent vandals from sabotaging Wikipedia. --Twinzor (talk) 02:18, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Oh thanks. Bballlova99 (talk) 16:43, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks

Hi Twinzor. I'm Xosincityxo. Thanks for the message earlier. Hope to keep in contact with you.

Hello, I am Kevin. And I love you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.113.238.244 (talk) 02:11, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Stealing my page

Kidstand stole the credit for my Rider Broncs. He signed his name on it when I made the full page. Is that against the rules?? -- Bballlova99 (talk) 21:02, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

In Wikipedia, nobody owns the articles, and thus it is not allowed to sign articles (signature should only be used on talk pages), so yes, he broke the rules. You shouldn't worry about having your credit stolen though, as anyone can see from the article history who has been contributing to that page. You can view the article history by clicking on the link that says "history" right next to the "discussion" and "edit this page" links. Furthermore it seems that user Kidstand crossed the line too many times and has been blocked, as you can see from his talk page. Keep up the good work! :) --Twinzor (talk) 04:01, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

User:Twinzor/DI

Are you open to help with the article? I came back from wikibreak to disappointedly learn that it had just been deleted. I can't commit a lot of time to help, but I could take an hour or two per week to look and make some changes. —Mar·ka·ci 05:52, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I will see if I can turn the article into something encyclopedic with sources as my time permits. Any help would be very welcome! Feel free to edit the article on my subpage whenever you have the time, but please don't move it to main namespace before it's gone through RfC, just to be on the safe side. :) --Twinzor (talk) 12:43, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

History of the Luftwaffe during World War II

Hi. I believe I have made a mistake. Could you move that to the above articles talk page? I don't know how. Dapi89 (talk) 16:56, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Seems like you got to it before me! Glad you got it sorted out! :) --Twinzor (talk) 19:27, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Alkaline battery

Hi Twinzor, in reference to this edit, I removed the category from the article because Category:Disposable batteries is actually a subcategory of Category:Electric batteries. Thus I was just following the categorisation editing guidelines. Point 3 suggests that "Usually, articles should not be in both a category and its subcategory." Thus I have reverted your revert. - Tbsdy lives (talk) 07:18, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Ah, sorry! I didn't notice that about disposable batteries. I just thought your edit was a bit weird at first, but you are of course right since disposable batteries is already in electric batteries. Should've paid more attention. :) --Twinzor (talk) 16:23, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
No probs Twinzor - I figured it was best to explain what I was doing - less chance of conflict with good editors :-) Tbsdy lives (talk) 04:48, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

François Payard ‎

I removed some promotional language from François Payard, so I think the article is now reasonably neutral. I removed the {{advert}} tag. When I see an article tagged as G11, I try to fix it if the subject seems to be notable. -- Eastmain (talk) 03:27, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

And a great job you did, both with sources and the overall tone. Looks much better now! --Twinzor Say hi! - Do I suck or rock? 09:31, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the "Talk"

Hi Twinzor, I still feel a bit intimidated to start editing the real live wikipedia... I think I'll just keep sticking to my "user" page and the wiki that I have started on my own, as testing grounds :) So, since that is the case, what do you think is the best way to start? I know how to create articles and make edits... But I'd like to practice how to start a template and a portal, to get a better understanding. Thanks so much for adopting me :) Les733 (talk) 18:09, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Dispute resolution - Shell to Sea

Hello. I got your username from the Editor Assistance wikipage. I've been having a dispute with a user (User:Lapsed Pacifist) over just about every Corrib gas controversy/Shell to Sea-related article out there - it originally began when I attempted to clean the articles of WP:POV and WP:WEASEL (I may have been a little heavy handed in my removal, but I think my edits were WP:NPOV and applied WP:NOTE in all cases), he reverted, and the dispute has continued since. I brought it to the WP:COI noticeboard - he's involved with Shell to Sea - back then, but nothing was done about it - he left for a few months soon afterwards.
He's now returned and it's getting to the point where we dispute even the most minor of edits to these articles, though again, I feel like my edits have been justified due to WP:UNDUE, WP:WEASEL, WP:POV, levels of detail and so on (though I may have cloudy judgement on this because I've been trying to keep them clean for so long). I've also stopped contributing to the Talk pages (I was previously contributing to all of them) as we never get anywhere, and both LapsedPacifist and another user (User:Garda40) responded quite aggressively towards me on one talk page. LP suggested going for a third opinion, but I'm not convinced this is the best step as the dispute is so wide ranging (at least 10-12 articles related to Shell to Sea).
I'm just wondering if you'd have any ideas - dispute resolution? Requests for comment? Just stick with the third opinion? Much thanks! Fin© 20:32, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Deletion of To Cherish

Every time I post on Wikipedia, it gets deleted. What's the point of having a free online encyclopedia that anyone can update, if the content I'm adding is being deleted every time? I'm obviously not very used to Wikipedia, but I cannot understand why my post is any less significant than many of the similar posts I've seen on Wikipedia. Here is what I posted:

(removed deleted article text)

Please help me figure this out. Maybe you can give me pointers on what else to include, so that it's deemed worthy/significant in Wikipedia's eyes.

Thanks

User:Twinzor/Wikimark

Have you considered adding this to Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts/Scripts? A bookmarking feature is often requested and linking it there makes it more visible for other users, which in turn makes it easier to recommend your script to newbies. - Mgm|(talk) 10:55, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Jeri Ryan

I reverted your recent edit to Jeri Ryan. Images of actors playing characters can't be used in the infobox for the actor's article or for any general identification of the person playing the part. See WP:FAIRUSE for more on this. That same image of Ryan has been added to the infobox several times in the past. Dismas|(talk) 04:18, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

I thought this would still be fair use, and I did briefly browse through the pages history trying to see if that particular image had been added previously. I didn't notice it, and thought this was just an omission. Sorry for the trouble. — Twinzor Say hi! 15:00, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
No big deal. It's the anon IPs that keep coming back to do things like this and knowingly don't follow the rules that bothers me. Educating a dedicated user who's willing to be educated doesn't bother me in the least.
One example of the image being added can be found here.
And the part of the fair use guidelines that applies to this is, "Pictures of people still alive, groups still active, and buildings still standing; provided that taking a new free picture as a replacement (which is almost always considered possible) would serve the same encyclopedic purpose as the non-free image. This includes non-free promotional images." Since a free image can conceivably be made (someone taking a picture of her in public, etc), a non-free image can't be used.

Assitance: Settling appropriate "see also" links?

Hi Twinzor,

I got your name from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Editor_assistance/list because I'd like an editor to look at the following change. I don't have the time or my own wikipedia account to make a decision on whether to roll back this change or not but it didn't seem to make any sense to me. Not knowing the specific rules for "See also" links, I'd rather just make sure a competent editor looks at it.

In this case it's the addition of a link to Rhodes Scholarship on an article about the Soviet system of choosing a bureaucratic elite by appointments. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=New_class&diff=139685592&oldid=138423592

I can't find any evidence to say that the Rhodes Scholarship selection program has any such relationships between those selecting in committees and those selected. Simply asking for a discussion on the talk page seems unhelpful as there is a new post on it about once a year, and this change has sat for over a year already.

Could you go ahead and see if it's appropriate link or not? My IP address is public so I'm not sure if I can track this discussion anywhere else than your profile or the page in question, as I might have a different talk page tomorrow :) 131.107.0.86 (talk) 06:59, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

I took a look at the articles, and I agree that the Rhodes Scholarship link was unnecessary, so I've removed it. Might I suggest that you register an account with us, it's very quick and makes discussing matters much easier, and has other benefits as well. :) If you run into similar situations in the future, remember to WP:BE BOLD, and also keep WP:BRD in mind. And you're of course welcome to drop a line on my talkpage if you need any help! — Twinzor Say hi! 14:54, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Shell to Sea Mediation

Hiya. Just wondering what the story was with the Shell to Sea mediation - the other user involved has decided to resume editing of the disputed articles due to lack of activity on the mediator's (yourself and PhilKnight) parts. Gimme a shout! Thanks! Fin© 14:52, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm deeply sorry that I haven't been able to finish the mediation. Doubly so, since we were off to such a nice start. Have you contacted PhilKnight about the mediation? — Twinzor Say hi! 12:00, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Yep, he left a message on the mediation page, but the other user is still concerned about the lack of involvement, leaving this message after I requested he discussed concerns at the mediation, rather than the talk page. Thanks! Fin© 12:34, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Hiya. I've pinged PhilKnight about LP's continued edits (which are starting to get ridiculous - reverting edits, saying I won't discuss on the talk page, even though I've pleaded with him to discuss stuff at mediation - calling removal of content not supported by a source "rubbish" - claiming WP:SOAPBOX, WP:COI, WP:POV and WP:WEASEL are invalid arguments for reverting edits). As I said to PhilKnight, I think mediation is too slow a process (to be honest, neither of you two have shown a real hands on approach), and am wondering what the next step is. I'd appreciate if you read the message I left for PhilKnight, it's fairly extensive. I'm probably going to stop editing (warring?) until I know what to do next, we simply go round and round in circles as it is. Much thanks! Fin© 11:57, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear things are taking a turn for the worse, and that I haven't been of much assistance. I wouldn't have taken on the mediation case had I known things would go the way they have in life outside Wikipedia (possible legal battles, work stress, wedding to plan, etc...), and that I could not finish the mediation. I'm not sure when I'll be able to return to the project, but it may be a while. If the informal mediation doesn't proceed, or if LP has lost his interest in it (which I cannot blame him for, the pace having been what it has), I suggest that you:
1) If LP is still willing to take part in informal mediation, ask for more mediators on the mediation cabal talk page.
If LP isn't willing to take part, or you cannot find another mediator, then:
2) File an RFC.
If the RFC doesn't turn up anything useful, then:
3) Request formal mediation - if you are both willing to take part in that.
If you're not both willing to take part, then, as a last resort:
4) File a request for arbitration.
I hope this helps, and that you'll get things sorted without too much wikidrama. ...and I wish I could be of more assistance. — Twinzor Say hi! 01:51, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
No problem, don't worry about it! Thanks for your help, enjoy the weddding =) Thanks! Fin© 13:07, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm definitely willing to take part in any mediation, but the protracted nature of the last one suited 9x5 as it meant maintaining the status quo of articles suiting him because of his aggressive edit-warring previously. 9x5, you write: "...I've pleaded with him to discuss stuff at mediation...", when there are numerous examples of you refusing to defend any of your edits on talk pages and even telling myself and another editor that it didn't matter what arguments we made, you would revert us [2]. You're being less than honest, and that's not helpful. Don't mean to clog up your talk page, Twinzor, but I find it hard to leave such statements uncontested. Lapsed Pacifist (talk) 13:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Since you're directly related to this matter, you are most welcome to voice your opinion in wherever the matter is being discussed. I'm very glad to hear that you're willing to partake in mediation, and hope that we can find a suitable venue where the matter can be handled at a reasonable pace. To achieve that, I think points 1 and 3 in the list above would be the most appropriate approaches. — Twinzor Say hi! 15:26, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Hiya! Cool, that sounds good (filing an RFM). I intended to file an RfC on Friday, but real life (studying for exams at the moment) got in the way. Thanks for all your help! =) Fin© 23:41, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
That's sound. Lapsed Pacifist (talk) 09:42, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

In need of your mentorship

Hi,

I need help from an experienced Wikipedian, and I saw your name over at WP:ADOPT.

I need your advice concerning WP:WPOOK, which I've been coordinating. The set of pages the project concerns is listed at Portal:Contents/Outline of knowledge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Outline of knowledge#Projected outline, and has grown to about 500 articles in the encyclopedia.

The goals of the WikiProject are:

  1. Increase awareness of readers of the existence of the outlines on Wikipedia
  2. Complete the existing outlines
  3. Create an outline for every subject that is exensive enough to benefit from having an outline (core subjects and major or extensive fields). There are thousands of these.
  4. Recruit as many editors to work on these as possible (we need thousands of editors working on these)
  5. Surpass portals in number by the end of the summer, and leave them in the dust by the end of the year
  6. Get the major outline subject areas displayed on the Main Page (in place of or in addition to the portal links at the top of the page)
  7. Increase the OOK to higher quality than Britannica's Outline of Knowledge (published in its Propaedia volume).

I was hoping you could comment on how to achieve the goals above.

Also I'm interested in every possible way of reaching readers and editors of Wikipedia. How can I get the most eyes and typing fingers on Wikipedia's outlines? Contacting editors directly without a reason relevant to them is spam, which I'd like to avoid. There are 75,000 regular editors on Wikipedia, and I want to contact all of them. So how do I do it? Directly or indirectly, I don't care which, piecemeal or all-at-once, all methods are fine with me. But I've got to find ways. I need your help.

I would also like to know how to find or attract editors to create new outlines. And I need advice on finding editors to help write the new outline article mentioned above (it needs to be fleshed out, completely referenced, and brought to featured article status).

Can you recommend anyone in particular who might be interested in sinking their teeth into a project like this? Or ways to reach groups of editors? Or ways to reach all editors? I welcome any and all advice you might have.

I look forward to your reply on my talk page.

Which is your recent wikimark.js script ?

Hi there, I am interested to know about the wikimark script that you have. There are quite a few articles which I like and have been trying to get a good way to bookmark them. Xeno told me about your wikimark.js script. I tried it out but it doesn't work. https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Wikipedia:WIKIMARK

Here's my monobook.js https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Shirishag75/monobook.js

as well as the Wikimarks page as instructed.

https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Shirishag75/WikiMarks

nothing happening.

Little bit of digging told me that you do have also a wikimarkbeta.js

https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/User:Twinzor/wikimarkbeta.js

now from the dates, it seems that wikimark.js is the more recent one.

It simply doesn't work for me :(

I do have another query as well. How do I know that I'm using monobook.js and not something else ? Is there a way to verify what theme I'm using? Some place I can check ?

Looking forward for feedback. Sorry for the long post, but I don't have your mail id otherwise wouldn't have put this on the talk page.

Importing WikiMarks to a new wiki

Hi!

I saw your little preposed gadget "WikiMarks" and I've put it on my Wikipedia account. The reason I am writing you today is to ask you if I could port it over to my wiki. I'm running MediaWiki 1.14.0 with the gadgets extension installed. I'd really appreciate it if you'd get back to me and perhaps help me move it over. Thank you.

My first article

I have an article in my sandbox that I want to present to fill in a red link Seitajärvi in Soviet partisans. Even though I don't speak a word of Finnish I used Wikitionary to get a sense of some of the phrases in Seitajärvi. The article talks about a 1944 event while the image shows victims of a 1942 event. It still gives the reader some idea of what and where Seitajärvi is. I don't think I would be able to find sources, citations etc. other than the Seitajärvi article in the Finnish Wikipedia. Maybe it's ready to present like this? Also I don't really know the steps or procedure to present an article. Slightsmile (talk) 19:22, 11 March 2010 (UTC)Slightsmile

Adoption

Hi Twinzor,

I've started to clean up the Adopters' list. You appear to appear to have been editing only sporadically in the last months. I wonder if you're still interested in adopting new users. If you're not interested any more, would you mind removing yourself? Thank you and happy editing, Snowolf How can I help? 13:28, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello from your old adoptee

Hey Twinzor, How's it going? Guess what I moved to San Francisco and held my first wiki party the other night to get some of my friends interested in doing wiki stuff. Hopefully it'll catch on and we can have more night of doing wiki together. Just thought I'd let you know. And maybe you can give me some advice on this article before I move it?

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at mediawiki.org. Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 00:54, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
