Welcome and stubs[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Wikicali00, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome! 

Could you please not remove the {{Massachusetts-State-Highway-Stub}} until the SFD debate has concluded? Thanks. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 08:21, 6 November 2005 (UTC) You wrote:

Hi, sorry, didn't mean to delete it.  Noticed the MA highway stub was up for deletion and wanted to start a new one for the articles I created (titled Massachusetts-road-stubs as was suggested). I see you're a road enthusiast too??

Yup... that's basically all I do on Wikipedia. Um... well as it stands now the stub won't be deleted, maybe just renamed. I'd wait on that until we figure out what will happen to all the road stubs. As for the NY highways template... we find that those templates only work for states with few highways... not for states like New York or California (the resulting template would be huge). Sorry about that though. If you have any questions you can talk to me here. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 23:15, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

In regards to the MA stub you created... let's wait until next week to decide what to do since we don't know if the old one will be deleted or not. I'm not quite sure what to do with the Florida template though. Large templates are generally frowned upon on Wikipedia in favor of the page called "List of x numbered highways" where x is a state, as well as the category called "X state highways." --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 04:57, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
Just a few suggestions: when you are inserting a template you can just type in {{Florida State Highways}} for example... you don't have to cut and paste. Also, I've redirected the "Hawaii State Highways" and such templates to "List of Hawaii state highways" (or whatever the list is called) since the only contents of the former were a template (that was copied and pasted). It's not a problem though, it does take a while to figure everything out on Wikipedia. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 03:45, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

A concern I have: U.S. Highway 6 already has 2 state highway templates. We can't have this for highways like I-95 for example (15 states?) --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 00:21, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Deletion of 'liberal wikipedians' category[edit]

Hi. I saw you're (like me) listed in this category which is up for deletion. Hoped you'd like to vote in favor of keeping it... Thanks! Larix 02:21, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Image:Wilmasign.jpg has been listed as a possible copyright violation[edit]

An image that you uploaded, Image:Wilmasign.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Copyright problems because it is a suspected copyright violation. Please look there if you know that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), and then provide the necessary information there and on its page, if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:DanaMA.jpeg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DanaMA.jpeg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images on Wikipedia is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. You can get help on image copyright tagging from Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. --OrphanBot 05:10, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

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

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Wilmasign.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that your image can be used under a fair use license. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If your image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why your image was deleted. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

If you have uploaded other fair use 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. Sue Anne 22:18, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Denver 2008[edit]

Hey, how's it goin'? I see you've joined a campaign I started here on Wikipedia; Wikipedians for Denver 2008. Thanks for your support. With your help and that of others here on the 'pedia, and abroad, we'll bring the DNC home to the west! I'm Editor19841 by the way, a Denver native and contributor since October 2005. If you've got any questions, comments, etc., always feel free to ask via my talk page. Anyhow, have a good one. Editor19841 22:57, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Denver 2008 - the latest[edit]

Hey, Wikicali00. I'm dropping by the talk pages of Wikipedians for Denver 2008 today with an update on the bidding process and where Denver's bid is currently at.

First off, Denver has a new, unofficial bid homepage up today: http://www.denverdnc2008.com/ , which you may want to check out for more info on the bid to bring the DNC to the Mile High City in '08.

Second, today the site-selection committee is expected to announce the final two cities in the bid for 2008. It's expected by most pundits and bloggers that Denver and St. Paul will likely be the two finalists, but many think that dark horse New York may edge out a seat in the final days of the bidding process.

Third, we're expecting an official site for Denver's bid to emerge within days from the mind of Colorado Democratic Party V.C. Dan Slater (founder and operator of the popular Colorado blog Demonotes).

Well, that's the basics of the day-after-Labor Day DNC update, from a dem from Denver (that'd be me). If your looking for more info on the process that this is all about, check out the premier blog for doing so, http://demconwatch.blogspot.com (a link is on my page: links section for both this blog, Demnotes, and Denver 2008). If you’re looking for more info on the Democratic Party straight from the donkey's mouth check out http://www.democrats.org the official site of the Democratic National Committee.

Anyhow, have a good one. Editor19841 (talk) 23:34, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Denver has succeeded in it's bid for the DNC and will proudly host our party in 2008!!! I wanted to drop by and personally thank you for your support. Our support and the support of others made this one go big, and you were a part of it! Thanks again! Editor19841 (talk) 19:26, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Anytime!! And congrats!! *thumbs up* -J

AfD nomination of Newington Mall[edit]

  • Perhaps the article (or a portion of it) could be incorporated into a greater New Hampshire shopping center page? We could consolidate them neatly without all the "fluff" that's already there. Just a suggestion. If nothing else, whereas most NH malls draw a lot of business from Massachusetts, Newington/Fox Run are situated conveniently next to the state of Maine, and depend greatly on Maine shoppers due to NH's lack of sales tax. It is also only one (out of two) malls that had Filene's as an anchor store which become a secondary Macy's after the Federated/May merger. Cape Cod Mall is the other. -J


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Debbifields.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Debbifields.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 04:54, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem.[edit]

I understand. Do what you have to do. If I posted a little more often, I'd probably be less likely to make these mistakes. I do have a few pictures I'm considering adding to articles in the near future (one is of the 2007 San Diego wildfires), and they're pics I've taken, so there won't be any copyright issues. Thanks for the notice. jeff (talk) 23:16, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject, or I happen to know personally).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 00:40, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Lee Marks[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Lee Marks requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the article or have a copy emailed to you.

Image permission problem with Image:DanaMass.jpeg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:DanaMass.jpeg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the image (or other media file) agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the GFDL or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the image to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the image has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, 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, and add a rationale justifying the image's use on the article or articles where it is included. 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 provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Images lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jay32183 (talk) 07:45, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

The Orange Lie[edit]

Hi WikiCali. I wanted to drop youa line about your recent additions of critical material to the Orange Line article. I have reversed them because they were controversial but unsourced. The orange lie thing had been added before, but the source was just a comment on a forum and so was unreliable. Please provide sources for material like this. If you don't know how, please drop me a line and I will suggest some possibilities. The at grade, not reducing traffic criticism also needs a source, some sort of expert/prominint critic or something. Thanks! Diderot's dreams (talk) 19:36, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

File:DYRHS.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:DYRHS.jpg is missing information as to its authorship (and or source) , or if such information is provided it is confusing.

Although images may not need author information in un-controversial cases, or where an applicable source is provided, such information aids those making use of the image, and helps verify the copyright status of an image.

If possible, please consider updating the media information page to make the authorship (and or source) of this media clearer.

If the media is your own work, please consider explicitly including your user name or using the {{own}} template on the media information page.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:36, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Kyle Aletter[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Kyle Aletter has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Why it would nice to keep Lee Merither's daughter unfortunately notably is not necessarily granted by being the offspring of a notable parent. Ms. Aletter has only had a handful of roles appearing in single episodes of various tv series or substitute game show model.

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of George VII (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on George VII (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.
