I'm glad to see someone else agrees with me! I don't think they serve much of a purpose, other than to make things unecessarily difficult, not to mention confusing. At the CfD I opened on these categories, a popular reason people had in favour of keeping them was "you only have to browse the sub-categories to see all these games - I do that anyway!". It seems to me that these editors don't seem to realise that Wikipedia isn't for people who have an intimate knowledge of the peculiarites of the category system, it's for everyone, and very few people who aren't regular editors will be familiar with any of this and will assume that certain entries are simply missing (as I did). Still, too many people like them to get the things deleted. Luckily we have the secondary categorization rule as a reason to add everything in them to the parent categories too. Seedbot is taking care of this - anything that gets added to one of these categories gets automatically added to the parent when the bot does one of its regular sweeps. OK, rant over!

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Puggsy wabbits world.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Puggsy wabbits world.png. 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) 05:32, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pettingill family[edit]

Your comment is requested[edit]

See Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/Exidor Tedickey (talk) 00:45, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

To clarify a little - even "a little friendly advice" in the context of a dispute can be viewed as referring to the Wikipedia guidelines. It would be nice to get on the RFC some review (to see that it's factual and reasonably neutral), and if you think that you've contributed toward trying to resolve the dispute, it would be nice to have you add your signature to one of the sections that's marked for that purpose Tedickey (talk) 10:06, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok, I agree with what's there currently. The only problem is I'm still not sure which bit to sign - "Users certifying the basis for this dispute" or "Other users who endorse this summary"? And I'd have tried to sort this out sooner, but, very busy day yesterday, sorry :) Xmoogle (talk) 15:04, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Shortened-taskbar2.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Shortened-taskbar2.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 04:25, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

You should get some well-IR-filtered lasers[edit]

If you've never seen one or experimented with one, it's easy to think that all the effects you think you see from the 100-200 mW visible light, are from the visible light. They aren't. SBHarris 18:12, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

I *have* some well filtered lasers. I also have diode lasers that don't have any IR used in the process at all. I do happen to be involved in the laser hobbyist community :) Xmoogle (talk) 18:29, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Shortened-taskbar2.png listed for deletion[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Shortened-taskbar2.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Shortened-taskbar2.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Disambiguation link notification for October 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Symphony No. 25 (Mozart), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:18, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for edit[edit]

Thank you for adding the iZombie character to List of fictional astronauts, Xmoogle. I have moved the entry to the end of the "Apollo" section of the list, since the entries are sorted by subject matter (program, destination planet, etc.) as well as date, but the entry was fine otherwise. Much appreciated. Gildir (talk) 14:08, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

You're quite welcome :D Honestly the layout of the page confused me almost as much as Wikipedia table formatting did hehe... took a looot of trial and error to get it to show up correctly. Took me back to my initial method of learning programming as a little girl - screwing around with source code and taking note of the results :) Xmoogle (talk) 21:56, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
