Re: welcome[edit]

You're very welcome! Wikipedia can always use more knowledgeable editors. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Also, when writing comments, you can use four tildes to sign your comments like this: ~~~~. — Knowledge Seeker 04:56, 26 May 2005 (UTC)

Is it a federal government site or a state government site? I don't know that much about images and copyrights, but I can try to help you or point to someone who knows more. You may find some more information on Wikipedia:Image use policy and Wikipedia:Image copyright tags. — Knowledge Seeker 07:40, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Re: merging articles[edit]

Don't worry; it's easy, especially when one of the articles is short. I'm assuming you want to merge Champsosaurus into Choristodera? Just edit Choristodera and make sure that you include whatever you want from Champsosaurus. Then make Champsosaurus a redirect (that is, edit it to say #REDIRECT[[Choristodera]]. As a final step, check What links here? and you can update the links to point to your new article (it's especially important to update double redirects, as Wikipedia will not automatically redirect twice. Let me know if you have any questions. Oh and by the way, leave new comments at the bottom of talk pages—I almost didn't notice yours except that I decided to archive my talk page just now. Thanks! — Knowledge Seeker 08:17, 13 July 2005 (UTC)


Updated DYK query Did you know? has been updated. A fact from the article Choristodera, which you recently created, has been featured in that section on the Main Page. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently-created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.
By the way, I'm the one who nominated Choristodera for WP:DYK. Hopefully it brought some fresh eyes to enjoy and help improve the article. It's great to see an article so well-developed so quickly after it's been created—great work! — Knowledge Seeker 21:04, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Mazon.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Mazon.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 arguement 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. ~MDD4696 03:15, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

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

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Champsosaur.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. BJBot (talk) 12:39, 22 April 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the corrections to Grassy Cove. I see you've done time in Kittrell Hall, so if you don't mind, check the captions on my Edgar Evins State Park photos, and make sure that's limestone. Bms4880 (talk) 22:33, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Society of Vertebrate Paleontology[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Society of Vertebrate Paleontology has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Only primary sources are used and this has been so for over four years. We require references from significant coverage about the entity, and independent of it, and in WP:RS please. See WP:42.

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
