Can you give cites for the topics in this article, please? Many of the terms used in it cannot be found anywhere on the Web. -- The Anome 01:45, 8 Mar 2004 (UTC)

## Image:Schr-harmonic.png

Yes, this is a nice illustration. I'd love to have a look of the code; is it possible for you to mail it to me? — Sverdrup 21:05, 25 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Oh, I see. I understand completely. I will be interested in May again, though. :-) — Sverdrup 11:41, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I'm interested in the C program too! Do you now know wether you can disclose the code?

Also, would it be possible to remove the condition from the image page, and instead make it GFDL? The GFDL does not disallow use as homework, but it requires attribution and reproduction of the license, so I don't think it could be used to cheat with. ;-) -- David Remahl 01:06, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Seconded. As you've made the image yourself, I think putting conditions on its use may disallow its uploading to Wikipedia. I know that we all license our text contributions the same way as a condition of submitting them to the project; the only reason there's such a hubbub with graphics is because it's harder to attribute them. It's a really nice diagram; I'd like to see it GFDL'd. (And, as the comment above mine states, it's still against the GFDL to use it unattributed in coursework or homework.) grendel|khan 18:51, 2004 Dec 21 (UTC)

If you continue to revert random edits of mine (and vandalize my talk page) without explanation, I will revert random edits of yours. --Wik 15:30, Apr 25, 2004 (UTC)

Hope you don't mind Dmn, I've added that threat of Wik's to the list of 'Defamatory statements and rudeness' on the evidence page for Wik2 at "Requests for arbitration". You've got to laugh ;-)Daeron 16:29, 25 Apr 2004 (UTC)

## Kylie

Hi Dmn

thanks for your comment. I was thinking exactly the same about the Fever photo. I was actually thinking about adding the international one and leaving the US one there also. Hadn't thought about deleting it. Running out of time now though. May get to it.

cheers

User:209.242.30.26 is indeed advertising on talk pages. I'm reverting the whole kaboodle. Hope he goes away. JFW | T@lk 19:15, 29 Apr 2004 (UTC)

## Split

I wasn't sure whether to split Stockport. (unlike say, Wigan, where the case is quite clear that it should be split). Generally I have been splitting articles about districts and towns, unless the district is only slightly larger than the town. I have also been taking into account local identity (as gleaned from webpages), and the way the urban area looks on a map.

If someone who lived in Bramhall was going shopping in Stockport town centre, would they say "I'm going to Stockport?" Would they consider themselves as living in Stockport (as opposed to the borough of Stockport)? If places like Cheadle and Bramhall have no separate identity other than as areas of Stockport, then that's fine, we can keep the article merged. Morwen 11:41, May 6, 2004 (UTC)

On a second thought, it's probably right to link to United Kingdom although the British Isles might be better? --Vikingstad 23:26, May 23, 2004 (UTC)

## Complaint from Chris Martin

What on earth is your problem?

Will you please leave the contributions alone.

I really don't see what it has to do with you - why not just let the people who want to comment on my work alone?

--Chris Martin 17:07, 10 Jun 2004 (UTC)

## Rude

In reply to your message, yes, I considered you to be exceptionally rude in removing the sections about my work, especially those pieces added by my colleagues from around the world. I can only presume that you failed to read the "Discussion" section, where I explained the situation. I have now had to explain to a number of humiliated people that the removal of their considered contributions was not due to any inadequacy on their part but solely to your presumptive and astonishingly arrogant decision unilaterally to withdraw their work. In future please have the good grace to check your facts and investigate the situation with a little more thoroughness and a lot more humility.

## Sidney photo

Hey, what was wrong with the old Sidney photo? Marnanel 01:18, 19 Jun 2004 (UTC)

## White Line death

Hi Dmn,

I see you don't like White Lines at the top of articles — which is fine with me (not that they bother me much either, the seem like pretty harmless creatures). I just thought to suggest moving [:category] tags from the top to the bottom whilst you were at it — if you felt so inclined. In the first few days of categories, it was recommended to put the tags at the top, but it is no longer necessary and they are better off at the bottom. -- Solipsist 18:52, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)

## Template talk:Europe#Poll: Which items should be listed?

## Reformatting Opera

I don't see why you reduced the image at Opera to leave all that blank space. An esthetics thing? Is there something about Wikipedia page layout I don't understand? Wetman 09:31, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Never mind. Now that I've read other people's remarks here, I see that you don't know the Wikipedia rule: Avoid unnecessary interference. Wetman 09:34, 29 Jul 2004 (UTC)

## Malicious Deletion Attempt

Hello. Sorry for the imposition, but I thought you might be interested to note that an article you supported in the past on vfd has been listed again under malicious circumstances - the 3rd such attempt in 7 months. Please feel free to review the discussion and cast your vote as you feel appropriate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Votes_for_deletion/Atlantium --Gene_poole 10:37, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

## Khor Virap

Hey, I just got an edit conflict while writing the Khor Virap article, and I noticed you uploaded a picture of Yerevan while looking through your pages. I was wondering if you have any more photos of locations in Armenia, as I'm slowly adding articles on varios places there (I recently wrote Haghpat and Sanahin for example), and was hoping to find a good source for photos. --Aramgutang 14:36, 17 Aug 2004 (UTC)

## VampWillow

Hi thanks for your message. If you feel that the above sysop's deletion of Empire of Atlantium is a serious matter, then I am happy to support any action you take to draw it to attention. I am not too familiar with such processes, and I am not otherwise familiar with this sysop, so I don't know if she has a history of non-consensus deletions of this nature. I note that the most virulent of those who voted against the article on VfD are all voting to keep it deleted, without addressing the non-consesus nature of the deletion itself, so perhaps if you are aware of others who might be concerned by the matter you could bring it to their attention and encourage them to vote to undelete.--Gene_poole 23:07, 18 Aug 2004 (UTC)

## Sockpuppet vandalism

Hi again. I've just noticed that someone has created a sockpuppet Natryn to vandalise the Empire of Atlantium article, which has now been forwarded to my user page and nominated for speedy deletion. Do you know how to reverse this? You can see the edit history of the sockpuppet here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=Special:Contributions&target=Natryn --Gene_poole 23:57, 19 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Yes I know you're not a sysop - I just thought you might have a better idea than me how to reverse sophisticated vandalism of this nature :-) I agree the article is better placed under Atlantium - I think that's actually how it was originally. Obviously there are a few people out there who really seem to be on some sort of personal crusade against this article for some reason, so if you can help me keep an eye on things it would be appreciated. --Gene_poole 00:14, 20 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the vandalism listing, and for taking an informed and responsible approach to a "controversial" subject. If people spent half as much time writing real articles as they do getting worked up trying to expunge facts they disagree with Wikipedia would be heaven!

## Official invitation

## Deletionist campaign

Hi there. As someone who has displayed a fairly rational and objective attitude towards micronation articles in the past I thought you might be interested to note that the rabid deletionist lobby is on the march against them again.

The latest target is New Utopia, which although a poorly written article in its current form concerns a subject that is eminently encyclopaedic, being the latest in a long line of libertarian "new country projects" (and therefore representative of a notable social/historic phenomenon), being the subject of dozens of international press and TV stories, as well as the subject of a widely-known US Securities & Investment Commission investigation for fraud.

You might want to take a look at the VfD and respond accordingly.

For future reference you might also want to note the articles in the Micronations Category, in order to keep an eye on its contents; I’ve been adding a number of well-researched, illustrated, fully referenced articles to this category in recent months, but there are moves afoot thanks to a highly suspect ongoing arbitration of process to have me banned completely from writing anything at all about micronations on the basis that as the founder of one, anything I write is somehow self-promotional and/or controversial. --Gene_poole 22:16, 1 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you'd earlier supported this new article's nomination for Collaboration of the Week. It has been re-nominated, having been worked on a little and has gained backers. Simply add your support here. Obviously such a big project needs as many users with relevant knowledge as possible, so hopefully this will promote it a little.

## Wagga wagga

...which I believe is Burbelese for Congratulations! It's my pleasure to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. You might find the new administrators' how-to guide helpful. Cheers! -- Cecropia | explains it all ® 03:20, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC)

## The Humungous Image Tagging Project

Hi. You've helped with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Wiki Syntax, so I thought it worth alerting you to the latest and greatest of Wikipedia fixing project, User:Yann/Untagged Images, which is seeking to put copyright tags on all of the untagged images. There are probably, oh, thirty thousand or so to do (he said, reaching into the air for a large figure). But hey: they're images ... you'll get to see lots of random pretty pictures. That must be better than looking for at at and the the, non? You know you'll love it. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)

## Article Licensing

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:

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:

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)

## RFC pages on VfD

Should RFC pages be placed on VfD to be deleted? I'm considering removing Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Slrubenstein, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Jwrosenzweig and Wikipedia:Requests for comment/John Kenney from WP:VFD. Each of them was listed by CheeseDreams. Your comments on whether I should do this would be appreciated. - Ta bu shi da yu 03:35, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

## Victory is ours!

Congratulations comrade, we have defeated the evil infidels, long live the list of songs with brackets in their titles! Shame about the X Factor result (I've updated the page, not entirely sure what to do with it now it's all done). Keep in touch. David 5000 22:51, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Sorry you're bored, do you have broadband at home? I don't, probably just as well otherwise I'd be on here all day. Steve's first single, released on December 20th (an odd date to choose, but a slow one in terms of releases), will be....Against All Odds. Great, another crap version of that getting to number 1, hopefully Band Aid, Kylie, Ronan, or Hot Pantz (!) can stop it from getting there. David 5000 23:32, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

## Mao

Please justify "more standard" introduction. I assert that the text you removed is the standard introduction to the game. New players should not even be informed that they will not be told the rules; the first penalty many players get is for asking about the rules.

The complete, correct, spoken introduction given to a new player consists of the words: "The only rule I can tell you is this one." All other information comes by way of example and experience.

Now, my bias is against such cruel games, and I am only too willing to have an article on Mao that discloses all the little nasty tricks played on victims. However, NPOV requires some even-handedness, and I see on the Talk page that some feel no explanation is appropriate. It seems clear to me that the correct WP introduction is therefore the correct spoken introduction. I considered moving the spoiler template to the very top of the page, but even the presence of the spoiler template gives away an important clue, since new players do not even realize they are being taken for a ride, or that any information is secret. The cryptic statement sets the tone for an entire game of paranoid intrigue (indeed, very like life under Communism during times of political campaign).

Is something gained by sanding this down to some universal blandness?

I like to reach concensus with editors of other opinions, so I ask you to support your version. Otherwise, kindly revert the edit, and take a penalty card. :) — Xiong (talk) 02:00, 2005 Mar 25 (UTC)

Please support your statement that the text you have written into the article is standard. — Xiong (talk) 02:12, 2005 Mar 25 (UTC)

Looking through the history, you appear to the be source of the statement that Mao was popular in Cambridge in 1975. Do you have any evidence for this? As far as I am aware, Mao was unknown in Cambridge immediately prior to the 1992-1993 academic year. Bluap 16:08, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

## Research project on wiki contributors

Hello-

I am aware that this is not the typical message usually posted, so I would like to apologize and ask for your kind understanding. I am a PhD student at Syracuse University School of Information Studies. My advisor and I are working on a research project on contributors to Wikis. This project received Institutional Review Board Approval number 05048. I would like to have a brief email dialog with you about your experience as a Wikipedia contributor. Please respond to this posting or send me an email at wikiresearch@hotmail.com, if you would be willing to answer a couple of quick questions. I would like to assure you that your comments will remain confidential.

Best regards, -Isabelle Fagnot

## Eurovision 2005

Hi, I just reverted your change. The significance of the 'Big 4'; UK, Spain, France and Germany being on the bottom of the table is as they automaticaly qualify for the contest, and contribute most of the budget of the EBU, therefore adding another other countries who didn't do well to the list is inappropriate. --Neo 12:19, May 28, 2005 (UTC)

## The Message

I didn't send it, and I still stand by that statement. Neutral administrators are investigating (ie, not you, your bias for your friend is understandable and obvious). I'm as confused as you are about all of this, simply because I didn't send it, by the way David is putting it across suggests he genuinely feels he received it from my account. A number of 'theories' have been suggested by others, including the possibility of forging the message, and somebody else sending it other than me. And, I will be up for RfA again, and I trust you won't troll me about something I didn't write again - RfA isn't about personal grudges, its about ability as an administrator. Its clear that your biased. Hedley 14:19, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

• I, of course, realise that. I'm sure that, if I lacked the abilities, I wouldn't of received so many support votes. I wouldn't of nominated myself if I wasn't ready. Hedley 14:38, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

## Mondale

Nope. Reverted self until he appears in the news, presuming it's not a hoax. — Dan | Talk 00:07, Jun 5, 2005 (UTC)

## Friendly suggestion

Hey. Yesterday you blocked a user:

00:17, 5 Jun 2005 Dmn blocked "User:User:JohnKenney" with an expiry time of indefinite (Oops, increased to indefinite) 00:14, 5 Jun 2005 Dmn blocked "User:JohnKenney" with an expiry time of 80 hours (Hoaxer & Name-thief)

I've got someone to fix the block, but hopefully you might consider checking blocks you make in future. Also, recently, you unblocked an impersonator because they were at Cambridge. This isn't a complaint, but I hope you'll look into things first in the future, and check your actions before and after you make them. Hedley 22:15, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

## rollback

Please don't use rollback except when fighting vandalism, since that is it's only intended function. -- Netoholic @ 17:48, 15 July 2005 (UTC)

How is the inclusion of the end of the NHL lockout considered vandalism? It's an important piece of news, considering the economic implications (2 billion USD in loss revenue already) and effects on the upcoming Winter Olympics and European hockey leagues in the fall. I think we're making a big mistake by not including this news item. --Madchester 20:17, July 15, 2005 (UTC)

## thank you for your opinion on my RfA

Hello, just a quick note to say thank you for voting, even though you were not convinced of my experience. Already things have changed. I feel empowered, yes, but not in the "oooh cool delete button!" way I was kind of expecting. Already I feel the weight of the responsibility I have now been entrusted with, a weight that will no doubt reduce given time. Perhaps I am ready for it, or perhaps, as you say, I am not. I hope that in the coming weeks and months I can prove you wrong, but no matter what I thank you for giving your honest opinion, it is really important to me. Thank you. :) GarrettTalk 10:58, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

## Newbury graph

Hey, I noticed you replaced the graph on the Newbury page, but the new one doesn't contain the line for 'Others', which the old one did. The old one was also made with gnuplot which has a better+quicker way of making graphs.. Regards, Joolz 00:43, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply :) I agree with you that your graph is better, I will have a go at making the gnuplot one better than it though! ;) Is the problem with the gnuplot one the fact that the lines are difficult to see? I could have a go at altering the background, what are your thoughts? -- Joolz 01:31, 23 July 2005 (UTC)
I didn't notice your other questions when I replied last night! The 1885-1959 results are from the two books in the references section, which can be found in most libraries, and the problem with getting it to FA status is the lack of electoral commentary (especially in the early years), Regards, Joolz 13:31, 23 July 2005 (UTC)
I've had a go at improving the gnuplot graph, what do you think of it now? -- Joolz 13:44, 24 July 2005 (UTC)
A slight correction there ;) Talrias has had a go at improving it, not me personally! -- Joolz 14:54, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

## Comment attrib for disambiguation

Hi, I know you mean well, but would it be too much to ask you to change slightly your comment attrib for disambiguation? Using a bodily reference like that just isn't appropriate for the subject matter of all the articles you are editing, for example, Biblical subjects; in other words I'd just as soon not see it; and hopefully you are not trying deliberately to be offensive. Thanks, Codex Sinaiticus 01:21, 28 July 2005 (UTC)

## Threats

Exactly what did I do to you for you to use threaten to leave wikpedia if I become an admin? Cat chi? 18:58, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

I simply read your contributions. For example, I can't imagine many sysops being happy with the opening paragraph of the Mehmet Ali Talat article - you seemed to be content to leave it with a different kind of POV. Dmn / Դմն 19:29, 8 August 2005 (UTC)
I really dont understand you. I dont remember contributing to the article you accuse me of POV. IN fact I had to check when and what edit I made. Cat chi? 17:11, 11 August 2005 (UTC)
I treat articles that are vandalised wikipedia bot. I have a bot that detects vadalism. Several of the recent admins and admin candidates were using my bot, and still do. I really do not see your reasoning. Cat chi? 17:11, 11 August 2005 (UTC)
I also do not see why WP:SUCKS exists in my VfA page. Cat chi? 17:11, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Lada Keyring1.jpg. I notice 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 argue that 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, ie 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 can claim fair use use {{fairuse}}.) See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

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 going to "Your contributions" from your user page and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

## Image copyright problem RE: Image:Smiling-child.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Smiling-child.jpg. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law. We need you to specify two things on the image description page:

The copyright holder is usually the creator. If the creator was paid to make this image, then their employer may be the copyright holder. If several people collaborated, then there may be more than one copyright holder. If you created this image, then you are the copyright holder.

Because of the large number of images on Wikipedia, we've sorted them using image copyright tags. Just find the right tag corresponding to the copyright status of this image, and paste it onto the image description page like this: {{TAGHERE}}.

There are 3 basic ways to licence an image on Wikipedia:

• The copyright holder can also release their work into the public domain. See here for examples.
• Images from certain sources are automatically released into the public domain. This is true for the United States, where the Wikimedia servers are located. (See here for images from the government of the USA and here for other governments.) However, not all governments release their work into the public domain. One exception is the UK (see here for images from the UK government). Non-free licence governments are listed here.
• Also, in some cases, an image is copyrighted but allowed on Wikipedia because of fair use. To see a) if this image qualifies, and b) if so, how to tag it, see Wikipedia:Fair use.

If you have any questions, just leave a message on my talk page. Thanks again. --SCEhardT 05:44, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

## Your vote on the RFR poll

I see you've added this graph to the Cheadle election page. It seems to me that it's somewhat misleading in that it compares the vote in "whichever constituency happens to be named Cheadle", but draws a continuous line where the boundaries have changed. Thus the Liberal vote in February 1974 appears to drop, when in fact it rose because the strongly Liberal voting areas had all been removed to Hazel Grove. Would it not be better to break the lines at the point where the boundaries changed, and possibly include them in shadow or greyed where (as in 1979) we have the notional figures on the new boundaries?

## quantum HO

The article suggests the image shows

${\displaystyle \left\langle x|\psi _{n}\right\rangle ={\frac {1}{\sqrt {2^{n}n!}}}\left({\frac {m\omega }{\pi \hbar }}\right)^{1/4}{\hbox{exp}}\left(-{\frac {m\omega x^{2}}{2\hbar }}\right)H_{n}\left({\sqrt {\frac {m\omega }{\hbar }}}x\right)}$
${\displaystyle n=0,1,2,\ldots }$

with

${\displaystyle H_{n}(x)=(-1)^{n}e^{x^{2}}{\frac {d^{n}}{dx^{n}}}e^{-x^{2}}}$

However, the graphs actually show the wavefunctions without the ${\displaystyle (-1)^{n}}$ factor in the Hermite polynomial.

Hello Dmn. Please be informed that, owing to Hong Kong's special status, I've reverted [4] partially your edits to the Universitas 21 article [5]. — Instantnood 20:31, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Hong Kongs status doesn't seem that special. It is clearly part of the PRC. Dmn Դմն 03:56, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
Yes and no. Constitutionally special administrative region is not within its administrative division structure, but both its current two special administrative regions, namely Hong Kong and Macau, are explicitly stated to be " inalienable part[s] ", which means they cannot be ceded nor getting independence as sovereign states. Each of them is on its own a separate custom territory, a separate legal jurisdiction (except constitutional stuffs).. and it issues its own coins and banknotes, its own passports, its own stamps, own visas.. it sends its own delegations to many international organisations, and its own teams to international sport events, and concludes its own bi/multilateral treaties with other countries, and so on and so forth. — Instantnood 16:58, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

## Orphaned non-free image (Image:NewburyGraph.png)

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

## Fair use rationale for Image:GordonRamsay.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:GordonRamsay.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages 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 non-free media lacking such an explanation 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. Videmus Omnia Talk 01:24, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Could you please tell us which font(s) you used in the image and where, and which font sizes you used, so that we can make an accurate SVG version? Thanks! It Is Me Here (talk) 19:04, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

You're mistaken. I had no role in the design of that image. Dmn Դմն 14:17, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
How strange - you're apparently credited with its creation at commons:Image talk:Wiktionary-logo-en.png. Do you know who did create the image, by any chance? It Is Me Here (talk) 13:18, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

I have nominated List of songs by British artists which reached number-one on the Hot 100 (USA), an article you created, for deletion.

## Image licensing

Hey there...

I am going through a number of images that have some minor licensing issues. I came across Image:StaffordshireSouthGraph.png which you uploaded. The licensing on this image is not complete as it was uploaded many years ago. I wonder if you could follow the link to the image page and correct the licensing with a GFDL license (or other free license). If you have any questions or issues, please drop me a note on my talk page. Thanks. --Jordan 1972 (talk) 14:10, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

## Typo redirect Homer Zuckerman

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Homer Zuckerman, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Homer Zuckerman is a redirect page resulting from an implausible typo (CSD R3).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Homer Zuckerman, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

## Image source problem with Image:ParisMetro.Lamarck.Caulaincourt.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:ParisMetro.Lamarck.Caulaincourt.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:31, 30 December 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 11:31, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

## Image copyright problem with Image:Chufront.jpg

Thank you for uploading Image:Chufront.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. J Milburn (talk) 17:50, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

## Image tagging for File:ParisMetro.Lamarck.Caulaincourt.jpg

Thanks for uploading File:ParisMetro.Lamarck.Caulaincourt.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 07:56, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

## Image permission problem with Image:Cambridge Emmanuel.JPG

Thanks for uploading Image:Cambridge Emmanuel.JPG. 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. Jappalang (talk) 00:29, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

## Unreferenced BLPs

Hello Dmn! 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 0 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag.

## Revision to Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri articles

I noticed that you have revised either Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri or Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire.

I intend to revise those articles following the Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Article guidelines. There are more details on the discussion pages of those articles. I'd be interested in any comments you have. It would be best if your comments were on the discussion pages of the two articles.

Thank you.

## File:DurhamStation.jpg missing description details

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:DurhamStation.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:01, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

## Melodifestivalen

Hi. Please move Melodifestivalen 2011 back into the Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 as this has been the long standing practice over the past few years and is what consensus among editors supports. Once the contest is over, the pages will be split, but during the period where both are ongoing, it was decided that in order to avoid duplication of efforts (people having to update both pages) one will be used until after the contest. The Sweden page was chosen as the base as its coverage is much broader than the Melodifestivalen page which in terms of the Contest, is only for the song selection. Also, in the future, please do not move pages like that without a discussion first. Thanks. Grk1011 (talk) 15:45, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

## Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 21:04, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

## Articles you might like to edit, from SuggestBot

SuggestBot predicts that you will enjoy editing some of these articles. Have fun!

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from Template:User0, SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot (talk) 02:12, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

## MSU Interview

Dear Dmn,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

• Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
• Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
• All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
• All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
• The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 23:12, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

## Speedy deletion nomination of File:Exclaim personal attack.png

A tag has been placed on File:Exclaim personal attack.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 this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
