Good luck!

current events, operation DOP[edit]

Hey thank you for helping out with the Current events. Just wanted to let you know for the past 16 days we have titled stories dealing with northern Gaza and operation Days of Penitence under the more broad scope of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict so I reversed your edit to reflect the precedent. Thanks, -- Dejitarob 19:55, 16 Oct 2004 (UTC)


I reverted your edit, please see the history and the talk page on Template:In the news. Cheers, -- [[User:Solitude|Solitude\talk]] 12:53, Nov 15, 2004 (UTC)

BTW, it is also on the front page of the most important online Dutch news website. -- [[User:Solitude|Solitude\talk]] 12:59, Nov 15, 2004 (UTC)

Hey there, no problem, my revert and comment for sure were not meant as a personal attack of some sort, I was just kind of expecting it to be removed anytime soon, that's why it may have seemed somewhat edgy. The Dutch article is here, it has a cool map, but less information than the CNN article anyways. -- [[User:Solitude|Solitude\talk]] 13:09, Nov 15, 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 2000 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. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Copyright problems with Image:Deal bombing 1989.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded, Image:Deal bombing 1989.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Copyright problems because it is a suspected copyright violation.

Mark83 20:24, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

No worries, the template wording was terrible. It has since been edited to stress that CC images are only useable on a source by source basis. Regards Mark83 17:51, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:BaltimoreRiot.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:BaltimoreRiot.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, then 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, then 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: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 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 17:32, 31 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 17:32, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
