You say "there are many other articles by user:Ruiz deserving to be translated". A list of what you think merits the effort would be useful. -- Jmabel 05:56, Sep 24, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)


I notice that you placed a copyvio tag on International Military Tribunal for the Far East. Thanks for finding that out. Unfortunately there is a little more involved than just placing the {{copyvio}} tag on the article - could you look at Wikipedia:Copyright problems for the process? Thanks, violet/riga (t) 13:39, 23 Dec 2004 (UTC)

MSFT, China, US[edit]

Can you summarize the findings of this book of what the U.S. might do if China bans Microsoft products? The paragraph you added does not convey enough context. zen master T 17:46, 21 May 2005 (UTC)

You mean to say you haven't read the book? Do you have any knowledge on what the U.S. might do? Is there evidence China and/or other countries are thinking of banning Microsoft products? The paragraph you added needs more contextual info. Try google maybe. zen master T 17:55, 21 May 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for adding the Jean-François Susbielle article. As part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting, I have replaced the generalized {{stub}} tag with {{writer-stub}}. When you create new articles, it would be great if you could use these more specific tags whenever possible. Thanks, and continue contributing to Wikipedia! Russ Blau (talk) 13:11, May 25, 2005 (UTC)

Oh, one other (related) thing -- on your User page, you say to use {{msg:delete}} for speedy deletion. Actually, the {{msg:foo}} syntax is being phased out, so you should just use {{delete}}. Russ Blau (talk) 13:14, May 25, 2005 (UTC)

Hi, and welcome to the Countries WikiProject! As you may have guessed, we're a group of editors working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of counties.

There are a variety of interesting things to do within the project; you're free to participate however much—or little—you like:

  • Starting some new articles? See some model pages such as Cambodia!
  • Want to know how good our articles are? The assessment department is working on rating the quality of every country article in Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask another fellow member, and we'll be happy to help you. Again, welcome! We look forward to seeing you around! Shy1520 10:45, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:37, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Eman al-Obaidi[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Eman al-Obaidi 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Disambiguation link notification for December 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Barrel bomb, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Steal (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 12:45, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

==Article on George Roeder, American author.

Hello. I don't have an account with Wikipedia and therefore I am unable to post a photo of him to the article.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

January 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Barack Obama, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear to be constructive and has been reverted. If you only meant to make a test edit, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. CAPTAIN RAJU (✉) 18:50, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Barack Obama. Stikkyy (talk) 18:50, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I have blocked this account as it appears to have been compromised. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:50, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, the account was almost certainly compromised, but a password reset has been requested from what appears to be a non-compromised address. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 20:01, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I've had the compromise confirmed (as best as it can be, but quite credibly) by email, and been advised that Youssef has changed his password. It shouldn't be too much of a problem to restore the account; Youssefsan should request unblock on this page when ready. Normally some kind of verification will be required to show that it's not just the hacker requesting unblock (alternatively a checkuser could do this). -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:04, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
