Commons:Deletion requests/File:Joseph Green Cogswell by LeQuesne.jpgEdit

Commons can be a steep learning experience and sometimes our methods are not obvious. Please treat this as a minor learning experience and not as me jumping up and down angry. There are two problems with your handling of the subject DR.

First, you cannot simply remove a DR from the log and the {{delete}} tag from the image -- the DR needs to be closed in the ordinary course of things. Closing in the ordinary course is far faster (Admins use a script) and leaves a {{kept}} tag on the image talk page so that possible future DRs are headed off.

Second, except for correcting minor spelling and grammar errors, we never delete text -- even our own -- from a DR. Instead we use strikethroughs:

"<s>I have changed my mind and want to eliminate these words.</s>"

will display as this:

"I have changed my mind and want to eliminate these words."

If you have questions, you may ask them here, at Commons:Village pump or on my talk page.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:30, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the tips. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 18:08, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted.

File:1921 Hillman 11.jpgEdit

is this picture okay for the site? --Goobakdc (talk) 15:58, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

It is hard to tell. If the photograph is from the United States and taken before 1923, the {{PD-1923}} license would work. I use it for English works as well. Certainly 1921 or 1922 would be a good guess for the date, but it is not good to guess, and cars last for more than a few years. So I would say with the current level of information you provide, the picture is not okay for the site. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 16:57, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Removal of the Ponca Indians - Sources+Edit

Hello Bob.

I've recently read the article by Carl Schurz you posted entitled "Removal of the Ponca Indians".

I am currently studying History at University and am writing a thesis on the relationships between The American Indians and the government/military officials. This article would be of invaluable use for my study.

I was wondering if it would be possible for you to tell me where you acquired this document. Unfortunately my University will not allow me to cite wikisource or Wikipedia commons as a source on my paper, but would allow me to use it if I showed where the document originally came from.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you very much, Fil.


Hi Fil,

I think it was a U.S. government pamphlet of some kind. I believe my source was a microfilm of the Carl Schurz papers in the Library of Congress that I got at one of the Harvard University libraries. There is a citation on Google Books:

http://books.google.com/books/about/Removal_of_the_Ponca_Indians.html?id=mRZMngEACAAJ

I used an electronic PDF reproduction of the microfilm, but I don't have that at hand. It seems to be available through Amazon for a price. I can't say with certainty it was from his papers, but I think it very likely. Harvard also had copies of the original documents which I used a lot, so there is a chance it was one of those, but I think it was from his papers.
