Image source problem with Image:3ArmedYank-1-.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:3ArmedYank-1-.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.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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: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. 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 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 17:35, 15 October 2007 (UTC). 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.

Proposed deletion of Stage Fright (animated film)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Stage Fright (animated film), 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because 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. triwbe (talk) 06:28, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Death Race (1976 game)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Death Race (1976 game), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Death Race. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 12:30, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Great job[edit]

Nick, you did a great job editing the 2000s in fashion article. I like the images you added as well. Cheers.--jeanne (talk) 09:36, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Morion[edit]

I have reverted your cut n paste move of Morion. Please do not do that, it leaves the article history stranded. If you feel a page move is needed, then discuss at the morion talk page first. Vsmith (talk) 01:52, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

2000s in Fashion article[edit]

Someone keeps deleting the images from the page. I've noticed you've added a new image gallery. Looks good. I was thinking about adding an image of a haute couture design of the 2000s. What do you think about that idea?--jeanne (talk) 07:18, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Another editor has removed the Scene setion. Go take a look, Nick. I have requested on the talk page that there needs to be discussion before text or images are just arbitrarily deleted.--jeanne (talk) 12:47, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
That was me. I actually left a message, but it was a reply to an old message around the middle of the talk page, so you probably didn't see it. I made a new one at the bottom of the page so this time it can be seen :) --Enric Naval (talk) 18:00, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Pistol sword[edit]

Please don't add in links to commercial websites as references to verify historical information; such websites are not scholarly and are not considered reliable sources by Wikipedia standards.

Also, when you add references (for reliable sources), please give all the possible bibliographical information about the source, not just the URL. URLs break commonly, and if you haven't given author/title/date/publisher information, there is no way to find that source again once the URL is no longer being maintained. Furthermore, bare URLs in the references section just look bad, and are discouraged. One solution for you is to use wiki markup to make the article title link to the url (by writing "[http://www.URL.com TITLE]"); a more robust way to do it is to use the citation templates available at WP:CITET, which allow you to fill in the blanks with source information and then the template takes care of the formatting for you.

Thank you, —Politizer talk/contribs 16:32, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

It's one thing to use Flayderman for an image; you just can't use it to verify factual information (ie, you can't say "X gun was first made in 1850 because Flayderman says so"—I don't remember the specifics, that sentence is just an example).
And, again, as I have already said, please provide all the citation information when you add sources. You may want to look at the editing tutorial if you're unfamiliar with wiki markup. The refs you added in your last edits still have bare URLs, and still do not provide author, title, publisher, date, or accessdate information. —Politizer talk/contribs 17:06, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Please take a look at Wikipedia's policy on reliable sources. Several of the references you have added are not encyclopedic and cannot be used to verify factual information:
  • http://www.collectorebooks.com/gregg01/Lot-139.htm is a commercial website, and the information about the sword was written there by some random guy. There is no review process, nothing scholarly about it, and it is not reliable; you have no idea where that person got his "facts."
  • http://antiquesandthearts.com/webEventItems/Html/AAW-2008-04-18/Pc1720700_200x142.jpg Not encyclopedic at all, it's only a picture. First of all, the picture is obviously recent, so it doesn't prove anything about the Victorian era (which is what you were citing it to prove stuff about). Secondly, as it's only a picture, it doesn't prove anything about whether or not civilians carried that gun, how it was built, or why it was built that way.
Politizer talk/contribs 17:19, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Have you looked at Wikipedia's policy on reliable sources yet? Please don't add references that are nothing more than pictures; references like that are useless for verifying information.
Also, when you add citation information to references, it has to be accurate. You can't just make up a title. For example, the title of the page http://www.gunblast.com/JessHardin_Hideouts.htm is not "European walking stick gun," which is what you listed as the title. —Politizer talk/contribs 20:13, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

A Norwegian national hero?[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for creating George Sinclair (Mercenary); I think it would be a good candidate for Did you know? if it could be expanded a little (they're supposed to have 1500 characters of prose, not counting references etc, I make it about 350 short at the moment). One question though. You say in the intro that he became a Norwegian national hero; but one of the references says that he was killed by Norwegians, and that they regarded killing him as a "great and heroic act", which sounds like it makes him the opposite of a national hero. Does the other book you cited say something different, of is there a mistake here? Best, Iain99Balderdash and piffle 23:02, 3 November 2008 (UTC)


Please format your references in George Sinclair (mercenary)[edit]

Again, when you add references (for reliable sources), please give all the possible bibliographical information about the source, not just the URL. URLs break commonly, and if you haven't given author/title/date/publisher information, there is no way to find that source again once the URL is no longer being maintained. Furthermore, bare URLs in the references section just look bad, and are discouraged. One solution for you is to use wiki markup to make the article title link to the url (by writing "[http://www.URL.com TITLE]"); a more robust way to do it is to use the citation templates available at WP:CITET, which allow you to fill in the blanks with source information and then the template takes care of the formatting for you.

If you are intimidated by cite templates, let me know and I can show you how to use them. Or if you don't want to use cite templates at all, you can still include citation information within <ref></ref> tags. For example, instead of <ref>http://kingcrest.com/Sinclair/highland.html-ssi</ref> you can write <ref>Sinclair, Paul. "Sinclairs of Caithness." Retrieved on 6 November 2008.</ref>

Politizer talk/contribs 02:02, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Please stop adding -ssi to the end of links within the text. That breaks the link. —Politizer talk/contribs 14:56, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Using a single reference multiple times[edit]

Hi,

Please don't use "ibid" when giving references on Wikipedia. Since Wikipedia articles frequently change, things get moved around, sentences get added and deleted, etc., it's easy for an "ibid" reference to get separated from the reference it refers to. Instead, if you want to use a ref more than once, use the "name" property. The first time you use that ref, instead of using <ref>REFERENCE</ref>, use [1]</nowiki>, where NAME is any name you choose to give it. Then, every subsequent time that you want to use the reference, just type <ref name="NAME"/> and it will duplicate that reference automatically. —Politizer talk/contribs 19:40, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

New references in Pistol sword[edit]

  1. I had to remove two references that were nothing but pictures of guns. First of all, a picture alone may never be used to verify a fact; secondly, the pictures in the Google Books reference didn't even have anything to do with the claim they were supposed to be verifying (the fact that some civilians used the gun as a backup gun).
  2. For now I've commented out the Frost book sourced that you added; since it's a paper source, you need to give a page number each time you use it as a reference. Once you've added page numbers to the references, you may restore them. —Politizer talk/contribs 13:49, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Joshua Shaw[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Joshua Shaw requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Rtyq2 (talk) 23:30, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Al Murray[edit]

Please don't remove image maintenance tags; this is considered vandalism. Instead, please address the concerns raised on the image pages themselves. Thanks. --Rodhullandemu 23:11, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

They shouldn't have had the tags on them in the first place. There was nothing wrong with them.

Please read, and understand WP:NFCC#1 and see how images of actors in character can be used. Although those images may be usable in Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder, there is no way they pass the most basic tests of fair-use in Al Murray, since they are not pictures of him, and the characters aren't even mentioned in that article. Use of images is not a free-for-all and each use must be carefully defended to avoid involving the Wikimedia Foundation in legal liability for breach of copyright. So far, such defence is inadequate, legally. Please address this as a matter of urgency. --Rodhullandemu 23:27, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Hang on, i'll try and change it

That's better, thanks, and lawyers may now sleep soundly. --Rodhullandemu 23:46, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

File:Falconet gun.jpg[edit]

Hey there. I have tagged an image you uploaded, File:Falconet gun.jpg, for deletion. You claim the cannon in the picture is a falconet, yet it isn't, it's some kind of breach loading device with a muzzle break. The copyright isn't owned by gunbroker.com, it's owned by whoever uploaded the image and wanted to sell the cannon. It could also be replaced by a free equilivant fairly easily.--Pattont/c 22:54, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

It's not a falconet. And you can't claim fair use on it.--Pattont/c 23:00, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Peterb250605 01.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Peterb250605 01.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. 72.88.43.119 (talk) 03:08, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Non-free content, Abdul Abulbul Amir[edit]

Hi. The lyrics currently given in Abdul Abulbul Amir are drawn from an 1896 book. Other lyrics may be used instead, but only if they can be verified to be public domain, to accord with our copyright policy. (See also WP:NOTLYRICS.) If you have a source to verify that these lyrics were published before January 1923 or that their copyright has otherwise expired, please be sure to make note of that.

In terms of the non-free images you are adding back to the article, Wikipedia's policy is to limit non-free content in individual articles. Point #3 of WP:NFC policy notes, "Multiple items of non-free content are not used if one item can convey equivalent significant information." This article currently has two non-free images. If you think that one of the other images is better, you might want to use it instead of the one I retained, but I do not believe we can justify four non-free images in a single article, three from the same cartoon. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:18, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

My grandfather used to sing those lyrics. He apparently learned them while in the navy

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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

Replaceable fair use File:Shield pistol.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Shield pistol.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Finnusertop (talk | guestbook | contribs) 22:20, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
