Morris Oxford bullnose much much better image[edit]

Thank you very much indeed for the filtering it is so very much clearer -

But now like the image above it it has either been stretched vertically or compressed horizontally. I asked at Wikimedia about this and the pundits all said there is nothing wrong with the image! Because the change has just happened to this other image with your revision I wondered if you might know what is going on. If its any help I use a Mac running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. Thanks and best regards, Eddaido (talk) 08:59, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't know much about Macs as I use Windows.
Are you saying the problem only appears on the new (revised) version? It's been saved as a "Gray" mode JPEG which might cause a problem with your Mac.
Does it appear twice as high as you'd expect normally? Ubcule (talk) 19:21, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Smurfing (online gaming)[edit]

Hello Ubcule,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Smurfing (online gaming) for deletion, because it seems to be an article that was previously deleted by a consensus decision.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Hama Dryad (talk · contribs · email) 14:13, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi H.dryad; Contested because- as described at Talk:Smurfing (online gaming)- "Content isn't mine (I just moved it while tidying up a dab page), but I wouldn't have recreated a previously-deleted page if the same issues had applied. In this case, the "not notable, no sources" used in the discussion against the old version doesn't apply. This incarnation one has at least one reputable source". Ubcule (talk) 17:00, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I was going mainly for the fact that it had been deleted by consensus before. If you think this no longer applies, then you're good. Cheers! Hama Dryad (talk · contribs · email) 18:01, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
No problem; further discussion at Talk:Smurfing (online gaming). Ubcule (talk) 18:53, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Given Mhlanga[edit]

Are you suggesting that it's a G11-type of spam, or if not, can you give me a bright-line definition of when it's blatant misuse? The policy specifically says that Administrators should take care not to speedy delete pages or media except in the most obvious cases, and this doesn't look obvious to me.

Template:Charlie Woods image[edit]

Ubule thank you for your comments ion the image of Charlie Wood. I suspect that your copyright comments are completely correct about the Charlie Woodsimage. I have had it for many years in a scrap book because Charlie Woods is actually member of my family! Regards Gairderek — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gairderek (talkcontribs)

@Gairderek: If I remember correctly, that was an image I marked as non-free because it appeared to have come from a newspaper, but still appeared recent enough not to be out of copyright?
Yep; unfortunately in cases like that the newspaper usually owns the copyright in the original image, regardless of who copies it (even if it's someone you know). Ubcule (talk) 18:01, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Ways to improve Prince regent (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi, I'm Iazyges. Ubcule, thanks for creating Prince regent (disambiguation)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Good job.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Iazyges Consermonor Opus meum 00:39, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

@Iazyges:; I'd normally reply here, but in this case I've left a longer explanation at your talk page instead.
To keep it short; the lack of links aren't a problem, because it's a disambiguation page, not an article- we try to avoid linking directly to those excpet where navigationally useful. Ubcule (talk) 17:54, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
