Hello, would you please explain your changes to Albanian language on its talk page? I am reverting them for now because I do not believe they are all correct. I am a native speaker of the language, but I do not know the SAMPA guide. Someone else did that, but I wanted to make sure that you are sure of those changes. thanks, Dori | Talk 05:08, Dec 18, 2003 (UTC)

Replied at my talk page. Dori | Talk 07:44, Dec 19, 2003 (UTC)
Replied again at my talk page. Let me know if you're following the discussion there, so I don't have to cross-post here as well :) Dori | Talk 17:20, Dec 19, 2003 (UTC)

Please write at minimum a stub article if you wish to create a new article. Anything less may be removed. Thanks Dysprosia 09:19, 22 Dec 2003 (UTC)


Hi again. Will you please reply at Talk:Albania where you got the coat of arms image, and also it would be nice if you stated what the copyright status is of the image at its description page. Dori | Talk 04:49, Jan 19, 2004 (UTC)

I got the coat of arms from the Albanian Ministry of Information: http://mininf.gov.al/ This is the official coat of arms as mentioned in the constitution of Albania. I added the info on the image link. Also, a nation's flag and coat of arms is public domain. Scythian99 | Talk

Deletion war brewing[edit]

I have noticed that you keep trying to take out material relating to Aleksandr Lukashenko that criticizes some of the policies that the west has adopted towards his regime. Can you please comment about my note on the talk page there about that dispute. You keep taking material out and user:172 keeps putting it back. Some kind of resolution to this kind of activity has to be reached. Are you willing to discuss this rationally? Please note that if this dispute cannot be resolved amicably I will be following the Wikipedia:Conflict resolution process in this matter. Thank you. — Alex756 | [http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Alex756 talk] 12:35, 25 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Juniper[edit]

Hi Scythian - the Kew checklist & bibliography of conifers (generally regarded as the best authority on conifers) treats Sargent's Juniper as Juniperus chinensis var. sargentii; my experience of the taxon supports that, too, it only differs from typical J. chinensis in habit (a low shrub, not a tree), not in foliage, cones, etc - MPF 09:35, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Hi Scythian - "Does your source use DNA analysis or simply morphology?" - yep, both! - MPF 20:01, 11 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Unverified images[edit]

Hi! Thanks for uploading the following images:

I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GNU Free Documentation License, {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know at my talk page where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much. [[User:Poccil|Peter O. (Talk, automation script)]] 04:31, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)

P.S. You can help tag other images at User:Yann/Untagged_Images. Thanks again.

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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

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)

Image Tagging Image:Lesothoarms22.PNG[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Lesothoarms22.PNG. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. 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 qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then 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 media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Thuresson 22:54, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Belarus_flag23.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Belarus_flag23.PNG. 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 21:39, 31 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 21:39, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

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.
