Welcome![edit]

Hi Wittkowsky, and a warm welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you have enjoyed editing as much as I did so far and decide to stay. Unfamiliar with the features and workings of Wikipedia? Don't fret! Be Bold! Here's some good links for your reference and that'll get you started in no time!

Most Wikipedians would prefer to just work on articles of their own interest. But if you have some free time to spare, here are some open tasks that you may want to help out :

Evolution-tasks2.png
  • RC Patrol - Keeping a lookout for vandalism.
  • Cleanup - Help make unreadable articles readable.
  • Requests - Wanted on WP, but hasn't been created.
  • Merge - Combining duplicate articles into one.
  • Wikiprojects - So many to join, so many to choose from...Take your pick!

Oh yes, don't forget to sign when you write on talk pages, simply type four tildes, like this: ~~~~. This will automatically add your name and the time after your comments. And finally, if you have any questions or doubts, don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page. Once again, welcome! =)

Paul Temple/Francis Durbridge[edit]

Really liked your contribution to the Francis Durbridge article! Rayray 09:28, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, now we just need one about Paul Temple. Made an article about him in the German Wikipedia at de:Paul Temple. Will try to translate it. Hope I get some assistance *g* --Wittkowsky 14:04, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Made it: Paul Temple - can someone correct my "wrong" translations? (still being German with school English-knowledge) --Wittkowsky 15:41, 20 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fair use rationale for Image:4thomas.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:4thomas.jpg. The image description page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles 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 fair use images lacking such an explanation 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.

Cloak-and-dagger film[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Cloak-and-dagger film, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

Objection, Mylord. Have a look at a precise translation at: http://www.dict.cc/?s=mantel+und+degen+film This term definetely exists (and it's no babelfish-translation). ...and by the way: this request for deletion has not been entered to the respective Wikipedia:Articles for deletion-section, so it is irrelevant. And as the "Allmighty Trasheap" even knows this term it should be kept. --Wittkowsky 08:58, 9 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Objection sustained, as per the Wikipedia rules. Proposed deletions must not be listed on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, this is only the recommended step when someone objects and you still believe it should be deleted - which I do. Now that you objected I'll add it there, may take a day or two though. Btw, dict.cc is probably the worst dictionary on the web, sort of a translation wiki, just that it's much harder to get rid of bad entries. I wouldn't give a dime for it. -- H005 13:28, 9 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, if you think "cloak and dagger" in literature is something completely different you are free to add content of that kind to the article. But that missing is absolutely no reason to delete the article, it is just an incomplete article. And another "well", Google finds 618 entries with Cloak-and-dagger-film -wikipedia, not 255, with "Cloak-and-dagger film" -wikipedia 693 entries and with Cloak-and-dagger film -wikipedia about 200.000 (as of today). Seems to be "a bit" more relevant than you thought. --Wittkowsky 22:37, 10 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unspecified source for Image:View-Master-DinNorm.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:View-Master-DinNorm.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}} 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 09:20, 25 June 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Liftarn 09:20, 25 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Changed it to {{PD-GermanGov}} which is closest to the German tag {{Bild-PD-Amtliches Werk}}. --Wittkowsky 18:40, 26 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Replaceable fair use Image:Autogrammkarte.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Autogrammkarte.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 {{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 fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 07:03, 17 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cinemiracle camera system...[edit]

I'm not making this up. The picture you show is the back of the cameras (i.e. the bits sticking out are viewfinders. Look at: http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/Widescreen/wingcm1.htm in particular http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/Widescreen/cmircam3.gif . Megapixie 11:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In that case I apologize. I only knew the picture from the book "Windjammer" showing, as I now know, the backside. --Wittkowsky 22:08, 30 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem :) Looking forward to working with you in the future. Megapixie 23:01, 30 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Cover-Der-Schatz-im-Silbersee.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cover-Der-Schatz-im-Silbersee.jpg. 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 may 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.BetacommandBot (talk) 13:31, 25 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

added rationale. Hope it's right this way. Don't understand too much of this stuff. --Wittkowsky (talk) 10:58, 26 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Orphaned non-free image File:Robe1.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Robe1.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free 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 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 "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

File copyright problem with File:Cover-Der-Schatz-im-Silbersee.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Cover-Der-Schatz-im-Silbersee.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Rockfang (talk) 09:59, 27 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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.
