Hi there, you have been listed as "inactive" on Wikipedia:Administrators. Please remove the notice when it is out of date. Cheers, Cyan 01:36, 9 Oct 2003 (UTC)



Hey Karen - It was a a real joy to see you on my watchlist again! The encyclopedia and the server situation have improved but we are in transitional period for the community (much more self-governance and less dependence on Jimbo). So there is a bit more drama than there should be at the moment. It seems to be dying down as we continue to improve our new dispute resolution process. I hope to see more of your edits soon! :) --mav 10:00, 16 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Karen you asked if we needed a Landsat 7 article. Here's my take - when chasing most wanted pages (sort of my hobby) I try to look at the links and decide if a redirect or simply editing the source pages make more sense. in this case, the alternate page is Landsat program. the problem is, as people post more and more landsat images, it seems to me that we'll end up with a Lot of links to Landsat 7.


Wikibooks is for textbooks and other non-fiction books that have an orientation toward teaching people how to do things (like how to cook). The name is derived from WikiWiki and textbook. Hope this helps. :) --mav 08:56, 18 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Karen. Cooking recipee have an encyclopedic value. If not for you, there is encyclopedic value for some cultures. The fact there is another wikiproject where you would like recipees to be visible, is not a valid argument to entirely strip this encyclopedia from all its recipee. I might understand that we do not become a whole repository of all the recipee in the world, but at least could not we preserve part of the information ?

Each time you move information there, we lose information

  1. we lose access to the information, since there is not even a link preserved to wikibook. That means, here, the information is just plain lost. Note that since the page is deleted, that means it is very likely a new author will come one day to create a new article on the topic, hence duplicating the work load. Note as well, that deleting the article is likely to be offending the author of the article, who will not find *any* reference to it
  2. you also break all the international references, since other wikipedias consider recipees valid information. We do not have link to refer to
  3. we lose links to typical recipees that are examples of a cooking style or cooking techniques. This is another loss
  4. we lose very interesting google hits which would attract women, and mothers.
  5. we deceive travellers, who very likely would like to read about famous dishes.

All to say, I would like to discuss with you the fact recipees are deleted from this place. I am absolutely unfavorable to such a scheme. I would be please to hear counter arguments.

Proposition :

  1. keep here famous recipees, or those relevant to a technic, or style of cooking
  2. let's not delete pages, but rather do a redirect over there, or better put a link in the page, to preserve information and international links

Karen, keep on doing what you're doing. Some, maybe all dishes, have encyclopedic value, but their recipes do not. The wikipedia article on Apple pie should tell what an apple pie is, where it was developed, why it's culturally significant, and then link to the recipe at wikibooks. Keep on transwikiing stuff to wikibooks, and thank you. Gentgeen 15:57, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

And above all Gentgeen, DO NOT PAY attention to the fact their is no clear consensus to move all of them and to delete the initial articles. Be careful to remember it is more important to do what you feel is best, rather than to guess other people may have different opinions. Very important, eh :-) Anthère0

Recipe moving[edit]

As you can see, moving recipes to wikibooks tends to get touchie. People can get very emotionally attached to particular recipes. It is important that they know that the recipe is not being deleted, just that the content has been moved to another wikimedia project. Additionally, it is very important that when a recipe section is moved from an article that remains, such as crème brûlée or pumpkin pie, that a link to the recipe at wikibooks be included in the article. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to make them here (I'm watching this page for now) or at my talk page, or possibly at m:Talk:Transwiki, though I don't go to meta as often as I'm here or at wikibooks.

Thanks, Gentgeen 02:00, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)

My response to all this.

Moving recipes, or ANY article is a two-step process. Nothing whatsoever has been deleted. But it was decided NOT BY ME that recipes should be placed in a recipe book at the Wikibooks site. Since I was working on the recipe book here, now I am working on the recipe book there. And to get the recipe book there requires a long and tedious moving process. So I started moving a few things. The move process is not complete. Once it is, then there will be links... for now, I can assure you that I have deleted nothing whatever, and the only recipes I listed for deletion here were recipes with no 'extra' commentary' on them whatsoever, and also no links to anything else in the wikipedia other than the 'recipes index' page. I'm not 'breaking' anything, and only following what I understand to be official policy - the note on the recipes index page SAYS they're supposed to be moved across.

If you don't want me to do it then FINE. It took me an hour just to transfer four recipes last night and now you're jumping down my throat about it. I don't have time for this crap. The recipes are not 'disappearing' from anywhere - you can go and read them at the cookbook any time you like, once I've given them a page (which I was about to do). KJ 04:05, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Sorry Karen, I didn't mean to sound like I was jumping down your throat. I'd just like to suggest that you link to the page in the transwiki namespace when you move the recipes out of articles. The link will follow the redirect left at wikibooks to the page's eventual perminant location, and the users of those pages will know where the information has gone. I'm sure I'm like you when I say I'd rather just get the pages where they need to go rather than fight with those who's first exposure to the move of recipes is the sudden "deletion" of their grandmother's favorite pie recipe. I also appriciate that these moves take a long time (which is why I haven't done any in a couple of weeks), so I appriciate all the help you can provide. I think I'll get some moved over tonight. Thanks, Gentgeen
It wasn't you doing the jumping Gentgeen! You have no need to apologise. I really did think that I was doing the right thing because it says right there on the page that the recipes are supposed to be moved... and then Anthere tells me off. Argh. For the time being I think I'm going to stick to fruits and vegetables, where nobody has told me that I'm 'not allowed' to use info (I'm copying some from here and using it as a base for a more culinary article...) KJ 04:48, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)
Sounds good. I did one or two for the spices earlier. Gentgeen

I apology for making you feel like I was jumping on you. You are doing an important job in moving the recipee, and should not just stop just because I ask you to do so. But the fact is, I believe some recipees are culturally and technically important. Some people will look for them because they are some classics, because tourists just come back from a trip in a specific country will really want to do themselves this very special and famous treat. Or recipee can be used as a support to explain some cooking technics (such as pâte feuilletée).

The fact you move recipees is fundamentally ok with me. What is not ok is that in some cases, no links have been provided whatsoever to the cooking book. So in effect the information is just lost. Worse, when some articles like ratatouille are just proposed for deletion, the whole information of what that dish is, and its relevance to a certain cooking culture disappears as well. Not only is there no more link to a recipee, but the very notion that dish exists just disappear from Wikipedia. People will type the word in the search box, and see that there is nothing (if the article is deleted). This is very bad.

For any important dish, an article must be kept (a stub if you wish) AND a link to the recipee preserved.

Now, I have the feeling this has been done for many dishes, though not for several french dishes. I do not say it was done on purpose against french food; however, I would not be surprised that if those moving the recipee are able to recognise which british or american dish is famous and relevant to the description of a certain way of life, this may not be the case for french cooking. If so, I would hope that you will accept my own expertise on the matter, when I tell you that not preserving recipee links for Coq au Vin or crêpe, or plain deleting ratatouille is bad; and that these articles are important to our folklore. I hope my position is clearer. Thanks Karen.


Why did you move the Gniezno article to Gniezno, Poland? Are there any other cities named Gniezno or is it just you idea on place names? Anyway, could you possibly move it back to where it belongs? Halibutt 10:59, 30 Apr 2004 (UTC)

My photos and copyright status[edit]

You've changed this place so much that I don't know how or where to put this any more! (but it looks great...) I just popped in from a link on the Distributed Proofreaders (my latest public works project), and I notice that a bunch of my photos are listed as 'questionable copyright status'. I don't know what boilerplate is needed but I took the photos myself (or my brother did) and of course they were freely donated to the wikipedia! KJ 07:39, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Karen, if you licensed them under the GFDL, just put a {{GFDL}} tag on them. Gentgeen 07:54, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I found the image tag list page... it looks like the most appropriate (well, the most appealing to me as the photographer) tag is {{cc-by-nc}} so that's what I'm putting on them. It says that they can be freely used for non-commercial purposes as long as I get credit as the original photographer. Is that okay? KJ 08:03, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Then they will be deleted. Read for more information:
They're your images, you can release them under any license you like. By the way, welcome back!! Gentgeen 08:06, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Thanks Gentgeen! It's probably just a flying visit but I'll hang around long enough to try and find all my images and fix them. I'd hate to think of them being deleted after I went to the work of putting them there! KJ 08:10, Oct 2, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for those photos! I've added them into the article. Ambi 01:39, 9 Oct 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.

Show cats and genetic health problems[edit]

I noticed that you have edited a section of the article show cat regarding the frequency of serious health problems in purebred cats. There is currently a discussion on the talk page about this section as to weather the article should state that this is a problem (the position I have taken) or weather the article should state that this is a misconception which is not true. Your input would we appreciated. Dalf | Talk 23:31, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:ListerGrave-SleepyHollowNY.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:ListerGrave-SleepyHollowNY.JPG. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images.

This user, User:Abu badali, keeps on trying to delete fair use images that I've uploaded, especially Image:Allison Mack1.jpg and Image:Kristinkreuk1.jpg. I have gotten permission from the websites owners to use these images, and I have written a detailed fair use rationale for both of them, and they both have the fair use tag on them. Even after a lengthy discussion, he still will not accept that they are fair use and he keeps trying to delete them! Loooking at his talk page and his contributions, he seems to think that he is the highest authority on all things "fair use", but he obviously is not. Can you please help me, or get some other administrators to help me, convince him that they are in fact fair use images and should not be deleted? It would be greatly appreciated, and he must be stopped before he lists every single fair use image for deletion. Thank you. - Ivan Kricancic 03:34, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Marigoldthumbnail.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Marigoldthumbnail.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify 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 file 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 meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, 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 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -SCEhardT 03:12, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Arachnidstartingscreenshot.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Arachnidstartingscreenshot.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. — Κaiba 23:31, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Calabrese (band)[edit]


A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Calabrese (band), because another editor is suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of the page. -- Swerdnaneb 06:32, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — SMcCandlish  Talk⇒ ɖכþ Contrib. 02:00, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Do you want to collaborate in the edition of Jessie J's page?[edit]

Hi, I'm JD3rulo. The thing is that I'm a huge fan of Jessie J, I have made changes in her page, but other users have removed them, replying that the links I referred to don't belong to reliable sources. So I'm wondering if you could dedicate part of your time in helping me to fill some topics that are abandoned, such as Jessie J's vocal type, range and also writing updated news about her career lately. I hope you can help me, cause it seems Jessie's page has been forgotten. If you need some help to write about any article or making research, you can count on me, so this is the only thing I can give you: my friendship to make wikipedia a better and updated site. Chao, have a nice day!JD3rulo (talk) 09:42, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Collard greens[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 Collard greens requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.
