Would you like to be adopted? Let me know which areas interest you here on WP and I might be able to help! A message on my Talk page is the best way to contact me. I am on UK time (GMT+0), if that is an issue. (aeropagitica) 22:56, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I'd love to be adopted! I have no particular area of interest at the moment, I'm just sort of getting into the whole process. I'm looking to learn and meet some people! Static Universe 23:20, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

OK, a good place to go to start meeting other editors would be a Wikiproject such as Esperanza. Check out the programmes that they have running there to start with. Wikiprojects are collaborations of editors with mutual interests in a particular topic. To see all of them, go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory. You can also look at the list of portals, introductory pages for given topics. There should be at least one entry in each that will match your interests! Regards, (aeropagitica) 23:42, 15 December 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the encouragement. There is a new one on Antonino Calderone. Mafia Expert 16:42, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

The Smiths[edit]

It looks like you are doing a great deal of important work here on wikipedia, but this [1] edit to The Smiths caused the deletion of a large, very important section of material for almost a month. Please continue to edit with care and diligence! Dunne409 01:40, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

The Acro-brats[edit]

Hello ... I proded this after the author removed your {{db-band}}, and then they removed the prod ... I've reverted it and added something on the talk page ... if they remove it again, would you be willing to take it to WP:AFD? Thanks! — (talk · contribs) 05:36, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Dreamon.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Dreamon.jpg. 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Age category[edit]

Hello! If you are receiving this message, that means that your user page is in a specific year category. Per a recent user-category per deletion, all specific year categories are to be deleted. If you wish to continue using year categories, you have two options:

If you wish, you may do both. Hopefully, this change in categorization will be quick and painless. Happy editing! --An automated message from MessedRobot 12:40, 9 March 2007 (UTC)


Hello, Static Universe. An automated process has found and removed an image or media file tagged as nonfree media, and thus is being used under fair use that was in your userspace. The image (Image:Apophis.jpg) was found at the following location: User:Static Universe. This image or media was attempted to be removed per criterion number 9 of our non-free content policy. The image or media was replaced with Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg , so your formatting of your userpage should be fine. Please find a free image or media to replace it with, and or remove the image from your userspace. User:Gnome (Bot)-talk 04:05, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject St. Louis[edit]

Hello, I noticed you've made edits to St. Louis articles or that you are in some way connected to metropolitan area. I thought you might want to become a member of the St. Louis WikiProject. We've recently built the project page and started a drive to improve St. Louis related articles. Please take a look to edit an article or add one of your own. Once an article's status has been agreed upon, feel free to stop by and lend a hand in getting it to featured article status. Hope you can participate!

Fair use rationale for File:Dreamondvd.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Dreamondvd.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

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 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will 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. J Milburn (talk) 13:19, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:23, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
