Hello and welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!

[[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]]

P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Statistics[edit]

While the Stats section is an interesting idea, it's rather redundant and hurts the flow of the music articles. Wikipedia doesn't follow Allmusic's style conventions.... --Madchester 01:54, August 4, 2005 (UTC)

Hello. Please remember to always provide an edit summary. Thanks and happy editing. --JobE6 Peru flag large.png 20:48, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Fighting vandalism[edit]

Hi there! I was reading on your RFA that you wanted to fight vandalism beyond your watchlist. You can certainly do that without being an admin, have a look at WP:CVU for more info. I'm a big fan of the CDVF tool (which is listed on the WP:CVU page), it's very helpful in catching vandals. - Akamad 09:13, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Sir, I apologise that you felt compelled to withdraw your request.--Anglius 02:05, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Clean-up?[edit]

Why did you flag Kendall College of Art and Design for clean-up? Tverbeek 04:10, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

The Wikipedia:Cleanup tag is for articles that are "ungrammatical, poorly formatted, confusing, etc," not those that you feel should have more information or be dressed up more. I've looked at other college articles, and I don't see what you mean about the KCAD article being incomplete or not "professional looking" compared to them. Most of the thirty or so I've looked at have pretty much the same level of development, except maybe with an info box (repeating information from the article), or a vanity photo added. What information do you feel is missing? Maybe more about its athletic programs, residential life, the school fight song, campus acreage? Maybe a list of non-notable former presidents?

Image Tagging for Image:Casualtiesgroup2.jpg.w300h438.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Casualtiesgroup2.jpg.w300h438.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the source and creator of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the source and creator of the image on the image's description page, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided source information for them as well.

Image copyright problem with Image:Dannysdrums.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Dannysdrums.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}}. If you have not already done so, please also include the source of the image. In many cases this will be the website where you found it.

Please specify the copyright information and source on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. pred 15:42, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Amp.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Amp.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify 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 file 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 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 01:12, 9 January 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 01:12, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Glenn5.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Glenn5.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-no-disclaimers}} 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 07:48, 28 March 2007 (UTC).

Non-free use disputed for Image:Flyswatt.gif[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Flyswatt.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. BigrTex 22:09, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:JackIrons2004.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:JackIrons2004.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 23:19, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Whydotheyrocksohard.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Whydotheyrocksohard.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 01:58, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Trillium Circle[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Trillium Circle requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band, 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. 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you.

Fair use rationale for Image:Werenothappytilyournothappy.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Werenothappytilyournothappy.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image 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 image 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 '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 non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Hey there 80-MAN,

 I work at Rockstar Energy Drink, and I recently uploaded an updated image (File:Rockstar-Original-2009.jpg) of our original 16 oz. can, however I'm not so familiar with the Wikipedia workings. I was wondering if you might possibly be able to assist me with updating the current image of our previous product artwork with our newly designed 2009 version. Or at least explain to me how I might be able to link the image I uploaded to the Rockstar Energy Drink Wiki Page.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your time and your help!
