Second BLP violation[edit]

Diomedes Díaz -

You have made an edit that could be regarded as defamatory. Please do not restore this material to the article or its talk page. If you do, you may be blocked for disruption. See Blocking policy: Biographies of living people. Sandy 22:22, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I restored the latest edits you had made and added inline citations for them. If you restore or add something else that might be seen as defamatory (if unsourced), you should try to add similar citations after them, since the bibliography section alone won't satisfy some people (since there have been problems with people adding unsourced statements about living people in the past, and verifying them without citations is hard, especially if one doesn't speak Spanish). If you need help with that, just ask. - Bobet 22:51, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

I do speak Spanish: the sources you have (now) provided are not as specified per WP:BLP. Find some news reports from the respected Colombian papers, and the text can be cited without violating BLP. Sandy 22:57, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
if isn't a verifiable source then (who owns it) or the aren't either. Portafolio and Dinero Magazine are the colombian version of Fortune Magazine. I doubt yor spanish knowledge and if you do know the language please take your time to read. --'''El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Qvixote De La Mancha''' 23:11, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
If you use reliable sources, and cite the text correctly, it can be included. Since Diaz is a popular singer, reliable information should be available in the respected Colombian newspapers. You had been advised on Sept 8, in the edit history, not to reinsert the text without citations: Bobet has now shown you how to cite correctly. If you need more help on citing correctly, let me know, and I'll lend a hand. You can't "acquire" Tourette syndrome as an adult, so you will need a very good reliable source if you plan to re-add that text. On highly critical and negative content such as you have added, every piece of data should have a high quality reference. Please do not include statements in any living biography which are not specifically backed by a reliable source. Cualquier ayuda, estoy a la orden, Sandy 23:21, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
I did write tourette's syndrome by mistake.. Guillain-Barré syndrome section was erased and can be verifiable..
Ministerio de justicia del gobierno de Colombia --'''El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Qvixote De La Mancha''' 23:39, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
That's a good start. I'm not sure if an entire expediente is the best source: it might be a primary source, which is not allowed per WP:RS. A reliable newspaper account would be better. Glad the Tourette's issue is resolved, as it wasn't possible as reported. Sandy 23:46, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
I can't give a lot of help right now, because I'm in the midst of three very big projects, but I'll keep an eye and contribute whatever I can, until I get more free time. I can format your refs and do a copyedit, but I don't have time to help with the research or read long expedientes: just try to use the highest quality sources, and make sure you only say what the sources say. Can you search the news archives of one the important Colombian newspapers? Sandy 17:42, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Mapas Departamentos de Colombia[edit]

Hola de que sitio web has conseguido los mapas departamentals identificados como "Territorial No. xx" estan muy buenos pero veo que no has subido todos los departamentos de Colombia, aprecio tu ayuda, saludos.

Gracias por los mapas, lástima que estan copyrighted.0kty 15:27, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Population of Cúcuta and Bucaramanga[edit]

You should know that Cúcuta has a higher population than Bucaramanga. You should visit the DANE's website. DANE in english is National Deparment of Statistics and the website is

Have a nice day...

Ricardoramirezj 16:26, 2 October 2006 (UTC)


The Cúcuta's article is my main collaboration to Wikipedia. Please tell what do I have to change in this article and I will.

About new map[edit]

I think that map is the oldest.. Nowsdays Cúcuta is 3 or 4 times bigger.

Have a nice day..

Help with Cúcuta[edit]

Please help me to correct the english of the article of Cúcuta. There's a section called green city. Please help me to correct the english of that section.


--Ricardoramirezj 11:54, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Cúcuta; ya le coloqué las referencias[edit]

Le escribo para decirle que ya le coloqué las referencias. Ahora necesito que por favor me ayude con la sección "Green City", para poder quitar ese cartel.


--Ricardoramirezj 11:44, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


Yo lo traduje de la Cúcuta de la Wikipedia en Español. Click aqui para ver el artículo en español de Cúcuta.

La ley es para todos[edit]

Si lo que usted dice es verdad, entonces tendríamos agrandarle en unos 500kb el tamaño a Medellín con todo lo del narcotráfico, la violencia... incluso podría ser buena idea colocar que en Medellín matan 900 personas cada seis meses.

Y le repito... Cúcuta es una de las ciudades más seguras del país.

Además tenga en cuenta que la prensa internacional siempre es muy extremista...

--Ricardoramirezj 11:09, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Pasó una vez..[edit]

Mire Fernando... la verdad no sé en que forma decirselo. Eso pasó una sola vez y en la época en que la guerrilla tenía poder en la ciudad. Hoy en día la ciudad es muy segura y como está en el artículo vive una era de progreso sin presedentes.

Considero que si alguien necesita información sobre Cúcuta y la consulta en Wikipedia querrá saber donde queda, que población tiene, cuando se fundó etc... más no que un día se colocó una bomba que mató a siete personas.

Considero que esta parrago le caga la cara a mi ciudad.. y no es enciclopedico.

Este es el único atentado que ha sufrido Cúcua en muchos años... ha diferencia de ciudades como Medellín, Bogotá, Cali que sufren muchos a diario.. y no por eso está escrito en el tercer parrafo de sua artículo en Wikipedia.

Si los artículos de las ciudades anteriormente mencionadas se colocaran todos los atentados que sufren a diario.. seguramente desbordarían un navegador.

Si quiere estar enterado de Cúcuta, consulte

Can someone help?[edit]

Cucuta article needs some serious clean up and balancing, there is a user adding nonsense; unsourced statements, and images and statements with doubtful copyright status- can someone help me? --F3rn4nd0 Flag of the United States.svg 19:53, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

I would recommend that you discuss these edits with the other user, if you haven't already. If the two of you can't come to an agreement, you might consider the steps of dispute resolution, including requests for third opinions, requests for comment, or the mediation cabal. Hopefully one of those will be able to get you what you need. Happy editing! Luna Santin 20:07, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: Armed Group infobox ?[edit]

Mmm, I'm not quite sure what you're looking for, so a bit more detail on what exactly you want the infobox to contain might be helpful. ;-)

(One possibitity using the existing infoboxes might be to use the political party infobox on the main article and the military unit infobox on an article specifically about the organized military portion of the group. In other words, FARC would have the military box and Colombian Communist Party would have the political one. The military unit infobox is quite flexible, and can probably deal with just about anything you throw in there by careful selection of parameters; but if you run into anything else it needs, please let me know!)

Copyright problems with Image:Farcguerrilla.png[edit]

An image that you uploaded, Image:Farcguerrilla.png, 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.
Descendall 21:22, 22 October 2006 (UTC)


Al respecto, creo que el problema es que el usuario Ricardoramirez no entiende muy bien el concepto de un Wiki, en donde cualquiera es libre de editar. Es muy común que los novatos se "encariñen" mucho con sus primeros artículos y sean muy celosos de que cualquiera los edite. Mi sugerencia es que esperes unas cuantas semanas hasta que él se aburra; eso es lo más fácil. Si no, entonces puedes ir a Wikipedia official policy y explicarle a ese usuario lo que un Wiki es y por qué no debe considerar que el artículo es algo de su propiedad intelectual. Rosa 23:54, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

    • Bueno, acabo de ver tus contribuciones al artículo de Cúcuta y la verdad, yo he visto programas de la BBC donde se habla de Colombia y estoy de acuerdo con Ricardoramirez que es pura prensa amarillista. Yo recuerdo una discusión similar que tuvimos algunos usuarios contigo hace algunos meses en el artículo de Colombia. El problema no es que uno no quiera dejarte editar la verdad. Lo que sucede es que, al no vivir en Colombia, la información que recibes acerca de nuestro país es errada; exageran la situación de violencia que vive el país y eso no es correcto. No creo que sea justo que al hablar de Cúcuta se haga énfasis en la situación de violencia. Yo conozco esa ciudad y es bastante tranquila la verdad. Me parece que al hablar de la violencia en Colombia es correcto lo que hiciste de crear un artículo acerca del conflicto en Colombia. Rosa 00:10, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I can only say that I know just too many friends from Colombia whom have suffered kidnappings.--F3rn4nd0 Flag of the United States.svg 21:11, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Aguilas Negras[edit]

Saludos otra vez. Contesto en inglés para mantener el protocolo, nada más: Yes, I was aware of the general situation and about the existence of the "Aguilas Negras". Here's another link about exactly the same subject: [1]. As you can see, the reality is that, while the AUC may no longer exist as a formal entity, parts of that organization do continue operating under other names and, sometimes in slightly different but similar ways.

Image:Iraq-kuwait 036.jpg[edit]

Hi, I hope you do not mind but I replaced this image with this one (Image:Apachefarnborough2006.jpg) which I took at Farnborough last summer. I liked your one very much, but I think the composition lets it down, specifically the loss of the tail rotor from the image. The date stamp is also a bit intrusive. Do you mind if I edit the date stamp out and restore the image to the article? We could also discuss it, of course, in the article talk. I wanted to give you the opportunity to comment anyway. Best wishes, --Guinnog 14:35, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

re:Kaleth Morales[edit]

I hope I'm not comming off as rude, but I was just curious why you reverted my edit to Kaleth Morales. I have been removing double Wiki-links on articles in accordance with policy, and I'm not sure why you restored them. Mister Senseless (Speak - Contributions) 19:33, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

where is that policy?--Zer0~Gravity (Roger - Out) 19:37, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

"Links should only be placed where necessary by context... over linking should be avoided." See here Mister Senseless (Speak - Contributions) 02:59, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Well it is not a policy and second you can interpret unnecesary in your POV..

April 2008[edit]

I noticed you had contributed to an article titled Illegal drug trade in Colombia. I am interested in writing a similar article on Mexico and would just like some input if you have any. Possibly what more you would like to add, what topics you feel are essential, etc. It seems like it will be a large undertaking I just want to get all my topics and ducks in a row before I begin. Any advice would be great. --I Write Stuff (talk) 20:08, 17 April 2008 (UTC)


Could you take a look at this image you uploaded when you get a chance and update the copyright template? Since it didn't have a source listed, I wasn't able to determine which tag would be more appropriate. Thanks. Shell babelfish 01:31, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Basque surnames[edit]

Some of your recent edits imply clearly that in your opinion, surnames such as Uribe and Urdaneta aren't, for some strange reason unknown to the rest of us, distinctively Basque. As this seems every bit as odd as claiming that, for instance, O'Malley isn't an Irish surname, I'd really like you to explain yourself... Monegasque (talk) 20:30, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

You better have a WP:REF reference for this. The surname might be of basque descent, but do you know how these people's ancestors acquired their last name? in America some of the indigenous and African slaves acquired European surnames to become "civilized". --Zer0~Gravity (Roger - Out) 02:34, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:3.mas unidos que nunca.png}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:3.mas unidos que nunca.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 22:49, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

Hi there, I notice that you tagged Image:Culiacanseal.png for speedy deletion without giving a reason. I have not been able to find a reason why this page should be speedily deleted, so I have removed the tag. If there is an actual reason from WP:CSD that this page should be speedily deleted, please re-add a tag from that page which gives the exact reason, or use {{db|insert reason here}}. Alternatively, you can use WP:IFD instead. Thanks! Stifle (talk) 20:58, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:2.lomejorparalosdos.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:2.lomejorparalosdos.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 '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 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) 12:02, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
