On JC Denton - where was the text copied from? If you find a copyvio, please replace the text with {{copyvio|url=http://original.url}}, and edit the Temp page so we can delete the copyvio from the database. -- Jim Regan 04:54, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Most of it was taken from http://archive.gamespy.com/articles/april02/dxbible/dx1/index2.shtm and I thought I could rewrite it to get rid of that and make it better anyway. I'm not sure what you mean about editing the temp page though, I'm still a bit new to all this wikipedia stuff. --The demiurge 15:24, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
OK. What you do is replace the text on the page with {{copyvio|url=http://archive.gamespy.com/articles/april02/dxbible/dx1/index2.shtm}}, which shows up as: (the original version has been removed so that this talk page does not show up in the copyright violations category, see this link to see the template. -- Kjkolb 16:24, 10 April 2006 (UTC))

Note the link to a /Temp page, which is generated. This is where you place new edits. For JC Denton, you would use JC Denton/Temp -- Jim Regan 20:04, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Ah, ok. So this is to go through a formal procedure for copyright violations? I just figured I could remove the offending text and make a better article in one fell swoop. I guess there is a certain amount of bookkeeping that needs to be done. Thanks for the help. --The demiurge 20:39, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Deus ex machina examples[edit]

I think you might have been confused: in your edit summary, you implied that I did something with the "unsourced examples list", but I didn't; all I did was to tag the article with {{examplefarm}}. Unless I missed something here ... +ILike2BeAnonymous 22:18, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

My comment wasn't directed at you, it was at 84.187.213.54, who dumped all those examples in the page right before your edit. I assumed removing the list would invalidate your tag too. I should have added "revert to last version by WikiSlasher" in the summary. Sorry for any misunderstanding. The demiurge 23:10, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Batman.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Batman.png. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

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.
