Hello Chrisn4255, welcome to Wikipedia.

You might find these links helpful: How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Naming conventions, Manual of Style. You should read our policies at some point too.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the Help desk or (if you want a broader audience) the village pump, or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

  • You can introduce yourself on the new users page.
  • You can find lots more information, including open tasks and daily tips, at the Community Portal.
  • You can sign your name using four tildes, like this: ~~~~.
  • Before saving a page, it's a good idea to use the Show preview button to review your edits. Also, consider writing a summary for each edit.
  • The Tutorial is a great way to learn the basics in a more perspicuous fashion.

Again, welcome! Chris Roy 01:29, 3 May 2004 (UTC)


Hi. I would like to nominate you for adminship. Do you accept the nomination? If you do, please leave a message on my talk page. --Lst27 21:56, 10 May 2004 (UTC)

I appreciate your invitation to nominate me as an admin, but I would like to build up some more experience before I can accept. Thank you for the thought, though. Chrisn4255 05:19, 21 May 2004 (UTC)


Re: The spelling of California Gov. Olson's first name - the state website index spells it Culburt, but if you go to the bio page it uses the Culbert spelling in the text. [1] His inaugural address has the signature spelled Culbert, which I think is probably the best source: http://www.governor.ca.gov/govsite/govsgallery/h/documents/inaugural_29.html I've also done some research on him; the newspapers of the day uniformly used Culbert as the spelling, as did his obits. MisfitToys 04:39, May 21, 2004 (UTC)

It appears I was a little hasty with my reversion. Sorry. I'll defer to you on this one. Chrisn4255 04:50, 21 May 2004 (UTC)

CML[edit]

I reviewed his edits, and he hasn't made a single constructive one (the closest I could find was changing Darth Vader's hair color to "PENISTOE"--wtf?) As such, I've blocked him for 48 hours. Hopefully, this will teach him to follow policies. Best wishes, [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]]


National Leaders[edit]

I think you should look at the the National Leaders Articles. To do so go to this Article First: List of national leaders. User:Patricknoddy 12:03 July 9, 2004

Re: Edits[edit]

I didn't know about the policy - but actually I moved what is the present article from it's talk page where I waited for input in regards. There was a bit of dustup as per Ronald Reagan raping a teenager in 1952 ... so I chose to wait for about a week. Thanks for letting me know. There was no intent to decieve. - Sparky 02:12, 18 Jul 2004 (UTC)

George W. Bush[edit]

I think you should look at George W. Bush or any other president. --Patricknoddy 14:43, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)User:Patricknoddy User talk:Patricknoddy 10:41 July 20, 2004 (UTC)

Julius Caesar pic[edit]

Hi, I don't suppose you'd be able to note a source for the Julius Caesar pic (Image:Julius_caesar.jpg) which you uploaded a couple of months back? It'd be nice to use this pic in Caesar cipher, which we're hoping to put in a Wikipedia:WikiReader, so we need to be careful about copyrights and such. Thanks! — Matt 05:40, 2 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Hi. Image:Wilbur.gif didn't seem to upload properly. If you still have a copy, would you mind uploading it again? Vacuum | tcw 03:32, Dec 6, 2004 (UTC)

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 1000 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:SandraDayOConnor.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:SandraDayOConnor.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read 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, please check 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. Thank you.

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

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

Unspecified source for Image:George Pataki.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:George Pataki.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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kjetil_r 23:22, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:SonnyPerdue.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:SonnyPerdue.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is disputed. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. Please go to its page for more information if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Image:MariaShriver.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MariaShriver.jpg. I notice 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 {{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 any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. Abu badali (talk) 19:26, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

I have tagged Image:BobTaft.jpg as {{replaceable fair use}}. If you wish to dispute this assertion, please add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}} to the image description page and a comment explaining your reasoning to the the image talk page. Calliopejen1 17:02, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:HenryBAnthony.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:HenryBAnthony.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 23:44, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

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

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:GeorgeDeukmejian.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.

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.
