Disambiguation link notification for September 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Piha Surf Life Saving Club, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page In (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.

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Kirsty Wannan Competing for Piha SLSC.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Kirsty Wannan Competing for Piha SLSC.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you did not create this work entirely yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

Please add this information by editing the image description page. If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

My parents are both dead along with people who took the photographs such as at their wedding and in Venice. My father died in 1997. I am the legal owner of Silver British Empire Games medal as it was given to me by my mother who died in 2010. I scanned it to make the image. I have all the photographs used in my possession

Waitamata (talk) 01:09, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

The photographs and images used in the Wiki page for Piha SLSC are owned by the club. I am a board member and can used them in the page written about the club. Most of the people who took the black and white photographs in the early days of the club are dead. These images have also been used in books written about the club over the years. The more recent images have also been used in Annual Calendars that the club sells to raise money. Some of them are also on the clubs web site. I have taken some of these photos my self but need to scan them to be able to upload them.

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:24, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Non-free use of File:Sergent Edwin Smith.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Sergent Edwin Smith.jpg. However, there is a concern that the use of the image on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. Details of this problem, and which specific criteria that the image may not meet, can be obtained by going to the image description page. If you feel that this image does meet those criteria, please place a note on the image description or talk page explaining why. Do not remove the {{di-fails NFCC}} tag itself.

An administrator will review this file within a few days, and having considered the opinions placed on the image page, may delete it in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion or remove the tag entirely. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 13:04, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Piha Surf Life Saving Club - Clubhouse 1935.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Piha Surf Life Saving Club - Clubhouse 1935.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:09, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Don Wright on his designed Tear Drop Surf Recue Ski.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:21, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Donald William Rutledge[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Donald William Rutledge has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:BIO... the only thing here that comes close to sufficient notability is the OBE, and with over 100,000 living members of the order (and with other deceased ones), it is not clear that this honor is strong enough to meet notability guidelines.

While all constructive 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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

The article Donald William Rutldge complies with the Wiki Five Pillars Waitamata (talk) 04:33, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Comments you make here will not be seen by most of those contemplating the survival of the article; best to make them on the Article For Deletion discussion page. And the question of whether this should be deleted does indeed go into whether it meets the WP:five pillars; in the discussion of the first pillar, you'll see the mention that Wikipedia is not a vanity press, which is linked to WP:NOTABILITY, addressing the question at hand. --Nat Gertler (talk) 10:01, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the commenent. The person is dead and the article is written in a fact base manner with refs. No vanity is intended. Waitamata (talk) 19:51, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Help request[edit]

Could someone please help by putting the Donald William Ruteledge article into WikiProject New Zealand as a "New Zealand people stub(s)" Waitamata (talk) 02:15, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

It shouldn't be placed in that category, because it's not a stub. It's already in the WikiProject, and the Project has rated it "Start-class", which is a step beyond stub (you can see this on the article's Talk page.) The category that it is in, nor NZ military of WWI, is a subcategory of the NZ people category, so it is already properly categorized in that respect. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:23, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
