Dear Weevlos

Welcome to the Internet's fastest growing community of encyclopedia editors!

Just a note to help you in your editing: you marked an edit to the article Bantown as a minor edit. The help page on minor edits states:

"Reverts to a disputed page are unlikely to be minor. When a page is disputed, and especially if an edit war is brewing or in full eruption, then it's better not to mark ANY edit as minor, unless you're sure that all other users will agree it's minor, like correcting a misspelling."

You should usually only mark an edit as minor when it's a simple correction of spelling or an obvious typo, or a change in formatting which doesn't affect the content of a page.

Careful[edit]

Be careful that your new sub-page does not become a soapbox. If I were you, I'd eliminate much of the commentary and make it more of a list/database format or you'll get blocked just like the others. Karwynn (talk) 18:31, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I have contributed articles and edits in good faith to Wikipedia before and if I am blocked for civil criticism then it will merely cement the proof of abusive behavior by the people in question. --Weevlos 19:04, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Comments on AN/I[edit]

Please do not make personal attacks on other users as you did here. It is a violation of our policies and repeated or egregious examples will get you blocked. --CBD 17:06, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/MONGO[edit]

Hello,

An Arbitration case involving you has been opened: Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/MONGO. Please add evidence to the evidence sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/MONGO/Evidence. You may also contribute to the case on the workshop sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/MONGO/Workshop.

On behalf of the Arbitration Committee, Thatcher131 (talk) 13:10, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

If you would like to post evidence to the case you can use the {{unblock}} template to ask to be unblocked to participate. Thatcher131 (talk) 13:10, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I feel I was blocked unfairly and would like to be unblocked to present my case in the evidence section of the arbitration hearing.


I would like to point out that I was blocked by the whim of a single administrator for having a page that criticized him in a completely civil manner. My talk page was also protected to prevent me from discussing it. --Weevlos 17:05, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

I have unblocked you.--MONGO 20:34, 26 August 2006 (UTC) User:Weevlos/Compiling Evidence has been restored.--MONGO 20:37, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

{{unblock|would like to participate in Arbitration case}}

My attempts to edit arbitration articles meet with the following message:

Your user name or IP address has been blocked from editing. You were blocked by MONGO for the following reason (see our blocking policy): Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "Weevlos". The reason given for Weevlos's block is: "ED troll".

Your IP address is 68.69.181.25.

I am not yet unblocked. My username was unblocked but the autoblock was not. --Weevlos 10:05, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I found and lifted the autoblock. You should be able to edit now. Hope this helps. ЯEDVERS 10:47, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Danmaynesaminzade.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Danmaynesaminzade.gif. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 04:11, 17 September 2006 (UTC)


Orphaned fair use image (Image:Monzymcpp.jpg)[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Monzymcpp.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is 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.

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 04:13, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Monzy-sushi.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Monzy-sushi.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:21, 2 October 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sherool (talk) 20:21, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
