Disambiguation link notification for January 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Liberty Highway, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Expressway (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

May 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of villages in New York may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Regions of New York series sidebar[edit]

Would you be willing to work with me on getting a better map for said template? The map used, while accurate to what one branch of the state government has decided to carve up the state, it is inconsistent to definitions the actual articles that the template links to. I understand it could be hard as each region can "claim" different counties and overlap.Camelbinky (talk) 00:52, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Definitely! I was actually planning on doing that as it is, as well as fixing up some of the regional maps. I used the economic region map more as a placeholder than anything else. Vmanjr (talk) 04:10, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
I am the creator of the timeline articles, and used definitions of "central", "Hudson Valley", "Capital District", etc mostly on the criteria of "which counties have towns which have common ancestry" whereas other types of articles may go by a demographic, economic, and/or historical reasoning of lumping counties. There are so many criteria such as TV/radio markets, economic planning by the state or multi-county cooperative organizations, even private organizations, religions, and companies (such as the Red Cross and Catholic Church) carve up the state into different regions for organizational purposes. I see it being a very hard task ahead of us!Camelbinky (talk) 01:58, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

File:DowntownCCPA.jpg[edit]

With the author listed as Thom Hanford and the uploaders username not similar then we need proof via WP:ORTS that they are one in the same or that the author has released the image in that way. LGA talkedits 03:34, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Please self revert your last change. LGA talkedits 03:36, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi! I replied on Thominendicott's page but you may have missed it. I'm afraid I don't understand the issue here. The user clearly used PD-self for release when they uploaded the photo, which is only meant for work that they own, and identifies this as coming from their personal photo collection. It seems pretty arbitrary that the uploader's PD-self declaration is being questioned. Honestly, if that's the case, then the PD-self tag becomes pretty useless, since every such tagged photo would have to go through an extra verification. Vmanjr (talk) 03:39, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes I missed that, when you upload an image with an authors name that does not match yours you need to provide proof that they have agreed to licence it. This can be done via e-mail to WP:ORTS. Please undo your last edit to the File:DowntownCCPA.jpg file. LGA talkedits 03:43, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Not sure if I agree with your sentiment (or if that the reasoning corresponds to any sort of valid policy for self-licensed images), but I'll go ahead and revert it anyways for due process. Vmanjr (talk) 04:06, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, however a number of editors do not understand what PD-self covers, for example a number think that self-downloading a image from the internet and uploading it here is covered by PD-Self because they did it themselves, in case where an author is given and there is no clear match to a username we have to get WP:ORTS proof that the author has licensed it.

Rockefeller/Binghamton[edit]

Your edit to List of people from Binghamton, New York fails Wikipedia Manual of Style. It is not verifiable WP:Verify, and also violates conventions of WP:Place. Please see the Talk Page, thanks Bill Huston (talk) 00:42, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
