Hello Zarateman and welcome to Wikipedia! Hope you like it here, and stick around.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!



Mitsotakis[edit]

This is an English-language encyclopaedia and the conventional English spelling of his name in Constantine, not Konstantinos. We have had this discussion several times already and this is the agreed convention, just as we have George Pananfreou and not Giorgios Papandreou, ktl. Adam 17:19, 11 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I've noticed you've been uploading images without information on where they came from or on their copyright status. Please add this information to the images' description pages or they may be listed for deletion in the near future. Guanaco 01:22, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)


Please go to Image:Wilson harold09.jpg and edit that image description page to give the source (URL, if online; ISBN, if scanned from a book; and if you've taken the image yourself, just say so) and the licensing status (the list of image copyright tags might be useful) of this image. All our images should have this information; images without source or license info will be deleted after seven days. Thank you. Lupo 21:45, 28 Sep 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 2000 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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

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)

Image source[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Amin dada.jpg. Please leave a note on that page about the source of the image because of copyright law. Thank you. --Ellmist 01:56, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Raymond_marcellin.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Raymond_marcellin.jpg. 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 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. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image Tagging for Image:Ongania.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ongania.jpg. The image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to indicate why we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image qualifies under Wikipedia's fair use guidelines, please read fair use, and then 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 want the image to be deleted, tag it as {{db-unksource}}.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Image Tagging Image:Heydar aliyev.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Heydar aliyev.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified 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 media 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 qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then 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 media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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 unsourced and untagged images will 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. Jkelly 00:56, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Spanish Biographies[edit]

Hi Zarateman,

I've noticed you've been adding links to Spanish biographies of numerous politicians. This is, however, the English-language Wikipedia... You are, however, welcome to add them to the Spanish Wikipedia.

Cheers and thanks, pedro gonnet - talk - 27.11.2007 16:51


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Reina1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Reina1.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) 04:36, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Zarateman! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 3,171 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Alfonso Guerra - Find sources: "Alfonso Guerra" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

CIDOB Foundation and Barcelona Centre for International Affairs[edit]

I have reverted what was essentially a copy and paste move of the page. While your edits at Barcelona Centre for International Affairs began to take the article in a new direction, it is important to preserve the edit history. If you think the article title atCIDOB Foundation is not correct, please follow the instructions at Help:How to move a page and WP:Requested move. olderwiser 14:53, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

copy and past moves[edit]

I've no opinion about what the proper title should be, but please do not move pages by copying and pasting the content as you did with Barcelona Centre for International Affairs and CIDOB Foundation. If you are not able to move the page yourself, please follow the instructions at WP:Requested moves. olderwiser 12:14, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 16[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Joan Fuster, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Spanish (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.

Yemeni Protests[edit]

Is there a need to escaltate the problem by calling it a civil war? What is the relation between a few protesters in the street and the civil war that one saw in places like Libya and Syria? I'm sorry if this comes of as slightly POV, but I don't want to offend people on Wikipedia and start unnecessary discussions. You will appreciate that this is not the place for such discussions. Thanks for understanding! Cheers! Sonarclawz (talk) 10:40, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to 1920 may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • ** [[Heinrich Lammasch]], Austrian statesman, last minister-president of Austria (as part of the [[Austro-Hungarian Empire]] in 1918 (b. [[1853]])

Disambiguation link notification for February 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1994, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bic (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.
