Hey, thanks for helping out Dhum Dhum. I hope you enjoy yourself here at Wikipedia. As far as Freedom (album) goes, the general rule is to avoid disambiguating until it becomes necessary until you really need to. Go ahead and keep it the way it is for now, and when someone makes the article on the Neil Young album, they can figure it out. Only worry about disambiguating if you need to, otherwise you're liable to make it more difficult than it needs to be. If you'd like to be part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Albums, we'd love your help.

Hello, Dhum Dhum. I am sorry, if I should have confused you with my edits. That was not my intention. I just did redirects to the page titles, that you have created before, so I hope, that you haven't had any double work. -- Cordyph

Re: Belgium towns[edit]

I think we might as well wikify the town links in the municipalities. Something, at some point, might put those towns on the map: whether it be a terrorist attack, controversy over a nuclear power plant, the birth or death of a famous person... you get the idea. Every town could have a 'claim to fame' -- they might as well have articles. In fact, you might find one or two of them already do.

Anyway, if every single town in the US can have one, so can everywhere else. -- Sam

Might as well be a standard, I think. -- Sam

Also, many of the municipalities have town or cities with the same name: you've called them "the city of Tielte proper", for example. Should there be seperate articles for the city/town and the municipality? -- Sam

No, I agree, they don't need it, as you said. -- Sam

Could you make the town edits "minor edits"? That makes them easier to filter from the RC list. --Eloquence

The NIS has numbers for the population of all municipalities for 2002, maybe you should use them if you add any more of them. - Kurt.

Dear D.D.: Hi! There is an article that talks about autograph collecting, Its the article Autograph, and it covers basic information about autographs. Perhaps the best idea would be to merger Autograph collecting do's and dont's to the autograph article. But I dont know how to merge them, someone else might have to do that.

Thanks and God bless you!

Sincerely yours, AntonioMartin.

Hey D.D.! On the same line, sent the article on do's and donts of autograph collecting to the Meta, where it might actually be more useful because there, well, its a different site. Well, as unbelievble as it sounds, the article was actually neutral in a way: Most of the tips I wrote are factual, because ive seen over and over again, people jumping over celebrity cars, celebrities that hate to be surrounded and everything. Ive seen much worse of course. I mean its understanable that someone wont appreciate being rushed when eating, but Ron Harper of the Chicago Bulls, answers that he has enough kids following him, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith calls 911 and John Stockton of the Utah Jazz wont even look at a boy in a wheelchair if someone sks them for autographs.

Im not saying you were wrong by pointing out it needed any NPOVing or anything like that, of course :) .Im just saying that so you have an idea of how complicated asking for autographs can get these days and how rude some people can be if the autograph asker doesnt follow rules or even if he or she asks in the right way.

Not all are like that, of course, Muhammad Ali, Wilfredo Gomez, Tara Reid, Cyndi Lauper and many others always seem to be with a pen and a photo in hand when you see them.

Laterz dude! and thanks for the advice about the Meta!

Sincerely yours, AntonioMartin.

I don't know if you're sympathetic to this cause but. I need support in trying to keep football at football. They want to move it to soccer, please see talk:list of footballers. Mintguy 10:12 Feb 19, 2003 (UTC)

Thank you for your contribution to the debate about football. I felt outgunned and needed all the support I could muster. Thanks. Mintguy

About Transkei, what I did was to link Transkei to Bantustan which had a list of other Bantustans. It made more sense to put the list there. -- User:Roadrunner

Hi DD. I've been playing with the table to try and get the best appearance see Kakadu National Park and Litchfield National Park. I really like your idea of including the picture. I'm also experimenting with images, and using scanned photographs from my own albums. A map locater would be a great addition and I look forward to seeing your work. Tiles 22:29 9 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hi DD. Had a look at the table. It may be a bit too fussy with both the picture and the map. But it would be good to have both. I'll experiment. Where did you get the map? Tiles 21:12 10 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hi DD. I picked up your comments and will respond at the weekend. Tiles 10:01 12 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hi DD. I agree with all of your suggestions. The map locater should appear in the table in the same table row. We do not need "Fact Sheet" and I agree with your suggestion for the information in the table. It would be good to try and standardise the size of the pictures and the map locater . I'm still learning about sizing images so would appreciate any advice you can give me. I'll start amending the Litchfield National Park, Kakadu National Park and work away at the Northern Territory Parks. Tiles 21:51 13 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hi DD. I do not entirely not disagree. The table width seems to be right but the 300x200 pixel size might be a bit small, it depends on the subject. I was criticised for the small picture on Kakadu National Park. Have a look at the Talk page. I uploaded two versions of the image. One cropped and the other full size. I do not have slides and am scanning prints. I'll try the suggested image size and come back to you Tiles 05:57 15 Jun 2003 (UTC)

What a good discovery! I'll "see" you there from now on Tiles 08:01 16 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Hi DD. I see you are online. Could you have a look at Litchfield National Park. I am struggling to get the image positioned to avoid an overlap on the table. Can you advise? I am about to leave work now and am going off line so a message on my Talk page would be appreciated. Tiles 05:47 25 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Thanks for your help, DD. I cropped the picture to get rid of the black line and resized it to make a better fit. Tiles 01:54 26 Jun 2003 (UTC)

The "foo" that I used in my edit summaries basically means "anything" or "something", so "foo language" means "whatever language" or "some language". There's a better explanation at foo. HTH! --bdesham 20:57 6 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Dhum Dhum RE: jesc , it is true London was chosen s the next venue for junior esc, but it is also true taht the reason why the winner of the jesc would not host the next esc was to stop presuure on the contesants. I want to know why u think that comment is missleading? -fonzy

I have no problem with what you write above. What I do find misleading is the bold part of your sentence: It was decided that the country that won the contest would not host the next contest to reduce the pressure on the contestants. You say that the winning country would not host the next contest. Logically speaking, this is not a true statement. It had been decided beforehand that the UK would host the 2004 edition. According to your statement, if the UK had won, it could not host the next edition because it had won. Of course it is true that the current winner does not host it, but that is something you don't know beforehand. I hope this makes it a bit clearer. D.D. 21:45, 16 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Double Names for Belgian cities[edit]

On Talk:Uccle, RickK and Jiang said that it is unacceptable in Wikipedia to have two names of the same place in the title, and the title of the Uccle article was reverted to "Uccle", the French name.

I am in the process of changing all "double-named" articles into single named articles. Most of the cities I have encountered are more commonly referred to by their French name on Google, although 2 are more commonly referred to by their Dutch name. WhisperToMe 02:14, 8 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Municipalities with facilities[edit]

I got your message on my talk page about Flemish municipalities. Just to let you know that I've just created a Municipalities with linguistic facilities article (still stub). A lot of matter from Kraainem, Linkebeek, Sint-Genesius-Rode, Wemmel and Wezembeek-Oppem could be put together there. I think it does not make sense to repeat the same things in different articles. What's your opinion? -- Edcolins 23:10, 1 May 2004 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks as well for your work on the Municipalities with linguistic facilities article. Looked rather nice now, and so much more accurate than my first draft. Still need some work in the history section though... -- Edcolins 13:27, 2 May 2004 (UTC)[reply]

WikiProject Unrecognized Countries[edit]

Hi, Dhum Dhum. I noticed you had made contributions to Puntland. If you're interested in Puntland and similar places, why don't you drop by the WikiProject Unrecognized countries and help add some more depth to Wikipedia's coverage of these?

Be sure to visit the Project talk page, and if you are interested, you can become a member. Ambivalenthysteria 12:15, 19 Jul 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:


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:

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[edit]

Hi! I'm working on the massive Wikipedia:Untagged Images project. When you get a moment, could you please add one of our Wikipedia:Image copyright tags to Image:PalmValley.jpg? Thanks!

How about the Somalia maps? Are they multilicensed as GFDL and cc-by-sa like your other contributions? It'd be nice if you would add the copyright tags there. andy 09:10, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)


As you have created the article Shabeellaha Hoose, you would perhaps be able to contribute to the article Sarcade - the settlement in the region. This would be very appreciated. Perhaps you would also be interested in the Wikipedia:WikiProject Countering systemic bias. Eleassar777 15:05, 7 May 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Image tagging for Image:Belgium_RegProv.png[edit]

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

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

Unspecified source for Image:LakeMungo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:LakeMungo.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. --Golden Wattle talk 21:50, 9 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Non-free use disputed for Image:MidnightOil_MidnightOil.jpg[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:MidnightOil_MidnightOil.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 will be deleted after seven days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Videmus Omnia 03:29, 12 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Speedy deletion of Mol[edit]

A tag has been placed on Mol 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 company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance 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 companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. KnightLago (talk) 02:51, 25 November 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I have nominated Index of Belgium-related articles, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Index of Belgium-related articles. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Qwyrxian (talk) 07:28, 14 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
