All those Roberts[edit]

Can we talk about that list you copied onto the Robert page? I don't think that a list of people named "Robert" has much reference value. ---Isaac R 23:41, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Silent valley.jpg. 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. Thank you.

Snooker edit[edit]

Hi - cheers for the edit to the snooker 2006 page - unfortunately I think you misunderstood the numbers in brackets, which represents the player seedings rather than the current score (although the one you changed had the big coincidence that the players seeding were the scores at one point!). I don't know if it is worth while putting in current scores (to the main score box), as they change fairly quickly and the page isn't really meant to be a "live" representation - the bbc site is there for that type of info. Thanks for the edit anyway, I hope you can add some more info on snooker as there is plenty to be done (you can have a browse by the snooker project that has just been restarted to get involved). Best wishes, SFC9394 16:37, 26 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are most welcome to get some of the other years done (there are plenty to do!). I have gotten a couple done and Nick has got one done as well. I was using the BBC archive [1] but it only goes back to 2000. Beyond that I think we would need to have a trawl about for some definitive (and reliable) source for past years. I found the best way when entering the results was to work from the final backwards, that way it all falls in a logical order and it is not too complicated (trying to get the ordering of players right when starting from the first round is a bit of a nightmare). The full results for 2002, 2001 & 2000 are in the BBC archive so you can happily have a crack with those if you wish. I am happy to help you out if you get stuck anywhere (I am about WP most of the day, most days), Best wishes, SFC9394 12:13, 27 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Updated to add - I didn't realise that the results were dumped in the pages for 2000+ by Pete Davis last night. Unfortunately they appear to just be a copy/paste from the BBC site (which is good from the perspective of using the data for compiling the charts) - but bad due to the fact that copy/paste jobs from other websites are generally discouraged (they are technically copy violations). The results already being there should make your task a bit easier - hopefully Pete won't add any more results as copies from other websites! SFC9394 12:23, 27 April 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

License tagging for Image:Silver strand.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Silver strand.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 14:06, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Deletion of School articles[edit]

PLease don't remove the AfD notice from articles, but instead discuss why the article should not be deleted at the linked page. Removing AfD messages is considered vandalism, but I assume that you were not aware of this. Fram 14:04, 8 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Disambiguation link notification for July 13[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Those in Peril, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page SAS (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

File permission problem with File:Jogre (screenshot).jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Jogre (screenshot).jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

The file File:Drumdrum castle.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unused, low-res, no obvious use. Better files at c:Category:Dundrum Castle.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 05:01, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
