World Series Edit?[edit]

It's a bit late, but this is in regards to your edit of mine on the World Series. A casual viewer won't know what a wild card team is, but they WILL know what the "Curse of the Bambino" is? I feel that the first Wild Card team to win is a fairly important highlight, since a majority of teams in recent years to win the Series have been wildcard's. Gonk 00:08, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Maybe "they won't know what it is" isn't making my point well. The point I was trying to make was that no one would care. It's just not that interesting. I'm a baseball afficionado and I don't even find it that interesting. The Curse of the Bambino makes an interesting story - heck, they even made a movie based around the 2004 Red Sox. My intention with that one section was to hit the absolute highest highlights of the World Series - series that will be recalled for years and years to come - and I don't think the 1997 Marlins qualify.
The list itself in that section isn't entirely in line with Wikipedia standards of being based on secondary sources - it's just a list I chose myself. So I can't fight anyone very hard if they try to throw in the less-than-riveting 1935 World Series but at least the article seems better than the huge gangly mess it used to be. —Wknight94 (talk) 00:34, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Ucf ba.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ucf ba.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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Si-cover dwyane wade 2006.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Si-cover dwyane wade 2006.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia 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.

Image source problem with Image:Ron uniform.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Ron uniform.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, 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, 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:Non-free content, 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 21:58, 20 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. B 21:58, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey Gonk-- So that the above image isn't deleted, just change the upload notice to read that it's a publicity photo clearly meant for release by his campaign-- it appears both on his presidential and congressional sites.--Gloriamarie 16:18, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

TU seal[edit]

Hola! I don't have any real beef, but I did want to address your edit summary for this edit. There are two issues with the logic: 1) "other stuff exists" is generally an "argument to avoid", and 2) Neither the Harvard nor the Yale articles have been through any sort of peer review process, never mind GA or FA review, so their quality is not worthy of such a standard. If you're looking for some sort of "precedent" then check out the example FAs listed at WP:UNI, but it's still best to avoid the "see such-and-such an article" rationale. Actually, the only reason the b & w seal was smaller than you desired was because it showed up as more nasty-looking when it was made larger. The colour version is nice; we tried that before but ran into some opposition, and the b & w version was the only decent version we could find from an official source. Anyway, take care! --inquietudeofcharacter (talk) 04:12, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

What needs to be done here is a picture for each of the individual Tulane schools in place of where the logos/seals have been. First each school used the logo, then it switched to the seal, and now many of the Tulane schools are sharing the same photo of Gibson Hall in their infoboxes. Perhaps the biggest shame is the lack of a photo for the Freeman School of Business, considering that it has such a nice building (even a photo of the artwork or ticker symbol on the inside would be nice). Unfortunately, it seems like none of the Tulane/Nola Wikipedia editors owns a camera, until now apparently. Welcome aboard. If you have any additional photos for the infoboxes, or additional Tulane or New Orleans photos in general, please share. Dated photos showing progress to McAlister Drive, New Orleans might also be of interest. Some of the remaining Audubon Park pictures desperately need to be replaced, and an entry for Exposition Boulevard (with pictures) awaits (see List of streets of New Orleans).

Speedy deletion nomination of Greg Reid[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Greg Reid 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 person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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 biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. ttonyb (talk) 02:49, 20 September 2009 (UTC)


Le Pavillion[edit]

You seem to have created the Le Pavillon Hotel almost entirely with text yoinked from the hotel website history section. Um. DON'T DO THAT. See Wikipedia:Copyrights. This is serious stuff that violates the basic principles of Wikipedia as free content original work. I've removed the text from the article. I could have just as easily deleted the whole thing as copyright violation. Copyright violations can result in your account being blocked. If you've done something similar with any other articles, please remove any non-original non-free licensed text promptly. If I can be of help, ask. Thanks for your p;rompt attention.

Proposed deletion of Greg Reid[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Greg Reid has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:ATHLETE.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 02:11, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
