Image copyright problem with Image:Summit-lorez.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Summit-lorez.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator.

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you have questions about copyright tagging of images, post on Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags or User talk:Carnildo/images. 12:01, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

sarcasm?[edit]

I don't know how the `sth happend to fasiscists' statement feats into Wiki. But it's your pagina.

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Andy Shaw, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree, discuss the issues raised at Talk:Andy Shaw. If you remove the {{dated prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I have a cat that would let me do that to him too, and probably it wouldn't hurt or bother him at all, (and it would be funny, because I'd know I wasn't hurting him) but the picture as it stands is kind of disturbing and is unlikely to ever be used in any encyclopedia article. Someone has already tagged it for speedy deletion and I'm inclined to do delete it. Please let me know what your intention was in uploading this photo. Cheers. Dina 04:25, 19 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for responding. It isn't really an issue of censorship, so much as utility. Wikipedia doesn't generally host images purely for creating galleries on userpages. I did not tag the image as offensive (someone else did)-- as I said, I can see that the cat probably isn't being harmed. But it's difficult to see where else in the encyclopedia the image could possibly be useful (we don't have an article on Fake kitty torture) and it's clearly offended at least one editor. That's why I asked. Note: Adding it to Animal abuse was, honestly, not the world's smartest idea. It will likely be deleted very quickly, whether I do anything about it or not. Cheers.

Commodity Fetishism and diamonds and cars and pearls and anything luxury...[edit]

With your rationale, you would quite happily and arbitrarily add a link to any article that seems to fit the notion of commodity fetishism. If diamonds are an example of commodity fetishism is quite different to a related page link. The 'See also' section is to direct the reader to articles that RELATE to diamonds NOT luxury in general. Your link is irrelevant to the article topic. SauliH 05:19, 19 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned fair use image (Image:S1-kultur-2 copy.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:S1-kultur-2 copy.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.

License tagging for Image:Thigahmahji martinlut 101b.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Thigahmahji martinlut 101b.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

To revert to a pre-vandalism version, I had to overwrite your updates to her page. Please feel free to re-add them. As the aldermanic election nears, People are mistakenly believing that vandalising her page will help or hurt other candidates. Most serious challengers believe that Daley's record should be made public and that rational discussion of her strengths and weaknesses will lead to appropriate results in the election. So addition of NPOV positive and negative information to her page will be welcomed and not arbitrarily deleted. But I am keeping a close watch on it for vandalism.

Chicago Coalition for Change and Progress[edit]

A tag has been placed on Chicago Coalition for Change and Progress, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

A tag has been placed on Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material.

The Chicago paper was published by anarchists, the kind of Germans that the fascists murdered. The fascists certainly did not borrow ideas from them just because they wrote in the same language. Are you thinking of the Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung? --Orange Mike 01:45, 28 August 2007 (UTC) (hopes you realize "Zeitung" means "Times")[reply]

yes i understand that but im more interested in how people of any political base will have the need to study and criticize other political structures. I was actually making a link (putting those double brackets in) of Arbeiter Zeitung on the - i forget - haymarket riot page? and when it was blue, i clicked on it and found the fascist article and all i could think is how ideas flow from one direction into another meaning that the anarchist workers paper printed in chicago would have a fascist counterpart printed in germany several decades later! The first must have affected the second. The population of germans in chicago was tied to the germans in germany by family, history, language, culture etc. and this would help these ideas promulgate.

?What fascist article? There was an anti-fascist paper of the same name in Austria many years later; but no fascist paper had that name. Are you sure you don't have things mixed up here? --Orange Mike 02:06, 28 August 2007 (UTC) (in schöne Milwaukee)[reply]

oh shit maybe i put somethign in my bong that i shouldnt have, but i could swear thta there was a fascist paper of the same name on here......

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Arbeiter Zeitung (Anarchist), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Well knowing that it is an historic newspaper, I have declined to delete it as an admin and removed the tag. I have also added to it a little and added an academic reference.

The political graffiti gallery[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to explain my edit to you: I removed the gallery in the Graffiti article itself because there is already a link to a gallery of political graffiti present (the commons template in the external links section). The 'Uses' section also starts with an example of political graffiti and that is sufficient for the article itself as an visual example: see guidelines Wikipedia:Guide_to_layout#Images. I suggest you add the pictures to the gallery in commons, if you'd like. I also want to note that some of the pictures in the gallery weren't political though: e.g. the viking graffiti, the kilroy graffiti. Or what do you suggest?

Proposed deletion of IBM and the Holocaust[edit]

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article IBM and the Holocaust, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process.

Do you know?[edit]

Don't you know how to rotate an image?

It is easy.

For example, using MSFT Paint:

Open MSFT Paint.

Select the image using, File, Open, then browse for the image.

With the image open in MSFT Paint, select Image, Flip/Rotate.

Then choose how you want to rotate the image:

Flip horizontal
Flip vertical
Rotate by angle
90°
180°
270°

Say, "Rotate by angle", 90°.

Emma Goldman's grave[edit]

The picture, we thought, would help us find it as we aimlessly wandered through the Waldheim Cemetery yesterday. Luckily it was a beautiful day.

Is it possible for you to give me some sort of idea as to where this is? I heard it isnt too far from one of the entrances and Im wondering if we were in the complete wrong cemetery alltogether as we were surrounded by different ones on all sides of the street.

It would be much appreciated.

Can you email me at myyellowchair@gmail.com?

7th millenium BC figurines photo[edit]

Hi, thank you for uploading this photo. Unfortunately, I've had to remove several instances of its usage because the the phrase "anthropomorphised rocks" is factually, grammatically and syntactically incorrect. There are numerous fields that study such figurines, these include archeology and art history, but linguistics is not really one of them. The subjects within the work of art may be anthropomorphic, however the same cannot be said of the medium. Otherwise, for instance, you could describe a painting as an "anthropomorphised canvas". ˉˉanetode╦╩ 23:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)[reply]

A tag has been placed on Swaptree.com requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Accounting4Taste:talk 20:55, 20 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Proposed deletion of Graffiti Blasters[edit]

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Graffiti Blasters, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Non notable company

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. -- Luk talk 13:11, 6 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]

A tag has been placed on Zoom H4n, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

Chicago photo during the 2011 Groundhog day winter storm[edit]

Chicago's Fullerton Harbor looking south during the storm (left) and on a clear day for comparison

I don't really know how to nominate a photo on wikipedia, let alone two photos, but your two photos really capture how Chicago has changed during a (heavy) Winter's day. I love it (well, I hate Winter, but I love how you captured it), and if you, or anyone else, knows how to qualify these photos for 'featured picture', I'll back it up 100,000%!!

Just found out your photos weren't promoted. Sorry to hear that, I really am. They had my vote, for sure!

Why not uploading your images at Commons?[edit]

Hi Victor, I wonder why you do not upload your images at Wikimedia Commons, so every project could use them, instead of uploaing them at the English Wikipedia? Regards, Pilettes (talk) 12:21, 24 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I noticed it while having a look at the images from the eartship-article. But in general it is a little bit a shame, that not ervery project can benefit from your pictures. Perhaps you can change your force of habit and upload in the future at the commons, so we all can benefit from your contributions. If you have a image uploaded at wikipedia and not in commons and I think it would be useful to have it at the commons, I will upload them there (if copyright makes no problems) but we all can have it easier. I would be pleased. :) Regards, --Pilettes (talk) 22:48, 5 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]
