St. Engracia in the Princeton Art Museum

Hello Thisisbossi, In the Dutch Language Wikipedia is an article about St. Encratia, aka St. Engracia. I know there's a splendid painting in the Princeton University Art Museum of Saint Engracia in a vivid red dress and a big golden nail in her forehead. I would greatly appreciate a picture of this painting on Commons with a GNU license (due to a strict copy right policy on the Dutch language Wikipedia). Any help possible on this? I like to hear from you! The quickest way to contact me is my Dutch talkpage.
I posted this question before in the Village Pump but I was kindly directed to Wikipedia:Photo Matching Service where I found your name. I've seen the picture in 2003 but had no camera on me then and no opportunity to return to the museum. They told me you're allowed to take pictures but you're not allowed to use flashlight. It would be great if you could oblige me by taking that picture! --Haarajot 20:32, 12 January 2007 (UTC) (CET) actually

Unfortunately, I am very rarely in the Princeton area. During my visits to New Jersey, I tend to be situated more within the southern portion -- particularly along the coastline. Good luck with your search! (note: this will also be posted to your Talk page) --Thisisbossi 23:24, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for your response (partially in Dutch on my Talk page!). I'll try to find another photographer. If I'll (ever) succeed I'll let you know. --Haarajot 19:01, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
You're welcome! I can manage to pull off a little bit of Dutch once in awhile :P --Thisisbossi 22:16, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Archiving

I noticed your comment on my talk page about not blanking. I only blank the page because it gets long and unreadable. I notice that other users archive their pages but I have been unable to find out how to do this. If possible do you think you could explain how to archive my talk page properly. Thanks.

Certainly! I have posted information to your talk page. Should you need any additional help, feel free to post here and I will be glad to assist. --Thisisbossi 03:49, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, I have restored all the history and then using your suggestions created a series of separate talks. I think en:User talk:Mobile 01 looks much tidier now and easier for people to follow the different threads. Let me know if what I did is correct. Thanks for your assistance.

Bi-County Transitway

The use of the word like 'seems weak' is very UNencyclopedic, in my opinion. Other than that, I agree with your removal of the {fact} tag. Cornell Rockey 13:22, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Correction - added un infront of encyclopedic. My bad. Cornell Rockey 14:45, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

That phrasing was just a remnant which I preserved from the text that had been there previously. I concur with your opinion and have modified the article accordingly, hopefully for the better. Thanks! --Thisisbossi 17:54, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Accokeek CFI

Regarding the Accokeek CFI: Not biased, a factual user review of the current conditions at the intersection. Rant, well edit don't erase. The before and after study, the intersection is better than before the CFI was installed but it would be far better still if traditional flyover ramps were used instead. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 132.250.171.177 (talk) 19:47, 24 January 2007 (UTC) (UTC) (talk ;; contrib)

Thank you for your response. My primary reason for removing the edit by 132.250.22.4 (talk ;; contrib) was because it was posted in a highly unencyclopedic format. Some of the points raised, however, are indeed issues that must be addressed during the design of a Continuous flow intersection, and therefore I have added some mention of the concerns within the article.
It should be noted that the CFI in Accokeek, as one of the pilot test cases for such a configuration in America, was very thoroughly thought out through planning and design. Safety has improved dramatically over previous conditions. Interchanges, too, come with their risks, particularly in the turning radii associated with the divergence of a higher-speed roadway (i.e. MD 210) as well as the weaving conflicts between the ramps. With regards to the turning radii: off-road crashes are extremely frequent when a motorist attempts to take the offramp too quickly. In cases where another ramp is beyond a cloverleaf, there can be a potential for head-on and angled collisions with other vehicles. Weaving sections inherently introduce rear-end and side-swipe crashes.
Bear in mind that flyover ramps are extremely expensive for already cash-strapped agencies to construct and maintain. An interchange was indeed studied but was not found to be warranted for the junction of MD 210 and MD 228. By fitting a solution more appropriate for the conditions, the cost savings can allow for funds to be used elsewhere in the County and State on projects that carry just as much importance to those locals and commuters as the intersection of MD 210 and MD 228 does to Accokeek residents and MD 210 commuters.
While government agencies strive to provide the best solutions for everyone, the fact is that resources do not permit for such. Therefore, agencies attempt to strike a balance in how resources are spent. The additional delay for vehicles on northbound MD 210 or along MD 228 is offset by the delay saved by improvements made elsewhere. A full interchange would require other projects to be put on hold, and surely those residents and commuters would not be particularly pleased!
I hope this information has been helpful. Should you continue to have any questions, comments, or concerns, you are welcome to post them here and I will respond to them as soon as I can. --Thisisbossi 22:59, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for adding the info. However, it appears that the Accokeek CFI is a hybrid CFI in that it is a three way intersection not a four way intersection as per the CFI description. The wiki statement that "All traffic flow is controlled by traffic semaphores as at a regular intersection." is not true in this instance, my "rant" contains the info regarding which flows of traffic are controlled by signals. This leaves us with some traffic flowing at zero mph. and some flowing at highway speeds. Speed differential kills.
The statement that you added "Additionally, as the offset left-turn traffic reenters the main traffic stream, motorists sometimes cite discomfort due to the need to accelerate from a stop condition up to the mainline speed." appears to only apply to the Accokeek CFI. The four way CFI diagram that appears in the wiki with all traffic flow controlled by semaphores appears to have all traffic flowing at consistant speeds, and appears to be much safer than in Accokeek. I would still like to see another bad instance of an intersection with the merge from zero from the left scenario.
Also a traffic study of all of the Rte. 210 intersections North of Rte. 228 to Rte. 495 the capital Beltway has been completed. Almost all of the intersections within the study area are slated to have stoplights removed, traditional ramps installed and roadways elevated. The Rte. 210 Rte. 228 intersection has the highest crossflow of any of theese intersections. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 132.250.22.4 (talk) 00:45, 25 January 2007 (UTC) (UTC) (talk ;; contrib)
Ahh, living and working around Accokeek has made me a tad biased. You are correct, my edit was specific to the Accokeek CFI -- I have modified the edit accordingly to state just that. Just let me know if there is still any confusion. Also, you are correct in that the MD 210 corridor study was recently completed, but the timeframe for completion of the interchange projects is still in the very long-term -- thus the reason that the 210/228 junction was treated in advance through the application of the CFI. --Thisisbossi 03:43, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

HELP: Sockpuppetry & use of CheckUser

{helpme} I have strong reason to believe that multiple accounts are being used by a single user purely for vandalism, but due to the plethora of accounts I am unable to track down the first; and CheckUser's instructions are horrendous. Can anyone assist with checking the following handles?

If you look at the contributions for each handle, you should quickly understand my suspicions: similar replacements with the same copied text. --Thisisbossi 05:06, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Checkuser should only really be requested as a last resort, and I don't think it is necessary in this case - since it is simple vandalism. So, you could just list these users at WP:AIV (the place where admins block vandals), but don't worry about it, I'll take a look at the accounts you have listed.--Commander Keane 05:48, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

That is a fine question, and one that I am without an answer for. You may wish to peruse the article on Wikimaps at Meta-Wiki and its associated discussion page; or alternatively, you could try the {{helpme}} tag and hopefully someone with more knowledge of the subject will be able to assist you. Good luck! --Thisisbossi 22:04, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

CERT

I noticed that you made some edit on the CERT page and just wondering if you were aware that some of the CERT programs are setup as 501's independent of the towns thus wikipedian's might want to leave some flexability in naming and discriptions of local groups.

Considering our the Citizen Corps Council which is in the Nation's Capital was just told that we are facing a cap of 30 percent of purchases of equipment and with future overall funding going to zero. There will be non profit citizen run organizations popping up here and else where as the top down budget centric juristiction hoping to maintain a fleeting control of dollars find no dollars.

What is left is that CERT will go back to what it was before 911. By the Citizen for the Citizens. Which is the point of CERT. Right? PS How is your CERT team set up locally? --NelsonJacobsen--

I could not quite understand much of the above, but to answer your last question: CERTs in my area are organised locally, but are connected through a county-wide Council of CERTs, which is overseen by the County's Office of Emergency Management (OEM). One of the counties in which I have joined CERT is among the best organised in the nation, but the other two are quite lacking. Those two lack any valuable leadership to organise, train, and direct CERT; and that leadership is lacking both on the local and county levels. I believe funding is primarily provided through the applicable county's OEM, whom I believe in turn receives contributions from the Department of Homeland Security. --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 15:19, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Spoiler warnings and WP:FF

Hi. I'm sorry if I seemed somewhat snappy in my response. The Final Fantasy WikiProject was united over the spoiler debates last year, and it's something its members feel rather passionate about. The debate has been reopened numerous times in the past, and it's lead to a lot of wasted time and stress as it constantly repeated. Certain WikiProjects have specific views about spoiler warnings, and people saw it best to let it stay that way and continue improving the project. That is why I was extremely alarmed by the reopening of the wound today, per se, since it's a horse that's been beaten dead. — Deckiller 23:31, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Thoughts on essay Deny Recognition

Wandering through Recent Changes I came across your warnings at en:User talk:Liapor. No doubt up to no good, and I even wonder about that picture at Black tongue. But I wonder also about your ennumerating each of the offences. At one point I bumped into Wikipedia:Deny recognition, and have taken from that that I shouldn't call out each of the bad edits. Usually I warn on only the first I find, clean up all the bad edits I can find, and then only add warnings after I know they have read the latest and still gone ahead with more. (I keep browser tabs open with the latest 10 or so warned, so I can refresh on their contributions list). Anyway, I'd love to hear your views on that essay. Shenme 03:19, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up on that essay! You are correct: I am a fan of providing a warning for each vandal edit (provided such is feasible). I am also a fan of posting their IP info on their userpages (for IP vandals), and so far it seems to have been effective; though that could always be mere fortunate coincidence. I have posted to the discussion for WP:DENY, but I do not plan on keeping it in my watchlist; so feel free to post here on my talk page should you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns.

Centralia pic gallery location

I thought the pictures I took were relevant directly to the section "Centralia today". Can you tell me why you think they belong at the bottom of the page? Mredden 02:41, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree that they are relevant to its current situation, but image galleries are typically located at the bottom of a page, primarily for aesthetic reasons. It tends to provide too significant of a break if it is located within the middle of an article. To support the "Centralia today" section, it is typically recommended that individual images be used to complement the text rather than a gallery. If you feel that one of your photos is better-suited to this than a current image, feel free to be bold and replace it; though you may wish to discuss on the Talk page as to what improvements a new image may serve over the old one.

Six of the Best

Hi,

I'm new to editing at Wiki and would like to know why you removed some of my additions to this page? I did not offer my personal opinion (I wasn't at the show) just added some additional information (many citations) and the 'fan's eye view' was just put there to give a sense of the occassion and the status this show holds to Genesis fans.

Kind regards, Andrew —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Adw uk (talkcontribs) 11:10, 23 March 2007 (UTC).

Ahh, I did not realise you were new to Wikipedia. In that case, let me first welcome you aboard and apologise if my edits seemed harsh in anyway -- that can unfortunately be a common occurrence on Wikipedia; but just keep in mind that reverts happen to the best of us. The portion of information I had removed was unreferenced, rife with weasel words, and outright unencyclopedic. I understand your intent with providing an observer's viewpoint of the concert, but Wikipedia attempts to stick to the facts and tries not to align with any point-of-view or opinions. If there was information within that text that you felt was particularly valuable, feel free to add segments back in, but try to keep it in a more neutral tone and be sure to provide a reference.
As you had provided an observer's viewpoint but state that you were not the observer yourself, I am left to assume that this information came from some source, somewhere; and rarely do editors add any emotional language (i.e. emphasising "the" or the quote at the end), therefore it may appear that this information was directly copied from somewhere. Be sure that any information you provide is not copied directly from any copyrighted source, but rather paraphrased in your own words.
I hope that helps -- feel free to respond on my talk page should you have any further questions. Sláinte! --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 11:41, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Phosphoros, Phosphorus, "Lucifer", (H)eosphoros and Eosphorus

Re your revert at 15.52 15 April 07 of my edit: I can assure you that the Greek Phos-phoros means light bearer. Phos-phorus is just a latinized form of Phosphoros. Latin "Lucifer" (constructed from Latin lucis + ferre) also means light bearer. Greek (H)eos-phoros means dawn bearer. Eos-phorus is a latinized form of (H)eosphoros. Have a look at Hesperus page for more information. Also there are plenty of other pages about the subject on Wiki and from Google, etc. So I look forward to your speedy restoration of my edit. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.122.66.158 (talk) 20:59, 15 April 2007 (UTC) (UTC)

I am not saying you are right or wrong, but note that the burden of proof is upon the editor to provide said evidence -- not for me to go out and look for it myself. Besides, this should be discussed on the applicable talk page; not on my userpage. --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 23:12, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
Sorry about using your user page. I realise now that the Lucifer page was simply saying that Jerome decided to use Lucifer in the Vulgate to translate Heosphoros in LXX Isaiah. He could have used Eosphorus, the latinized term. Re the "Origins in Isaiah" and "Other instances of the Morning Star in the New Testament" sections: Both wrongly refer to a "Greek" Heosphorus instead of the correct Heosphoros (some prefer to use the spelling Eosphoros as in the "Roman Poetic Appellation" section of the page). Wiki Hesperus page (also via Heosphorus or Eosphorus redirect) gives info on the topic of the terminology. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.122.54.41 (talk) 03:24, 17 April 2007 (UTC).

Sports teams in PA

Howdy: I noticed that an editor removed the Hershey Bears from articles such as York, Pennsylvania and Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I actually agree with the edits, though it took me a moment to understand the editor's edit summary. The Hershey Bears, while surely having many fans in both York and Lancaster cities and counties, it is indeed the case that the team is not even located within either county. I believe that the city's article should remain specifically about the city so-as to avoid a slippery slope of other "general area" sort of information.

In its current state, it is very likely that the speedy deletion nomination may continue forward.

I've checked the contrib history on the IP at the time, and I couldn't find any vandalistic edits, or I may have missed it. But I did see a self reverted test edit. --wL<speak·check> 06:31, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
There are a number of edits involving changes to established values: [6] [7]; tests/vandalism: [8] [9] [10] [11]; and self-rv's of questionable edits: (1a) (1b) (2a) (2b). Though, fortunately, it seems the user has left for the time being as the user has not made any recent edits. With regards to self-rv's, what is the admin ruling on those? What if the first edit is blatant vandalism and the second removes it -- the user may still get kicks out of cluttering the edit history; and as my little cousin has demonstrated firsthand: some people think it's clever to share their vandal links with friends to show they got away with it. If a user makes numerous vandal edits followed by self-rv's, is that enforcable; or would many admins consider enforcing it? I suppose the real question is: how much good faith is too much? Thanks for your input! --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 08:40, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

AIV Report (#2)

No need to report vandals that have already stopped after the final warning. The one you just reported stopped at 1:20 when they received a final warning. Also, you don't need to fill up a vandal's talk page with warnings, like the 3 you left. ··coelacan 01:51, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Ahh, I had missed that the previously-posted final warning had been posted in response to the last edit -- thanks for the heads up. However, I still prefer to enumerate warnings. --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 01:55, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, it's probably best not to add more than one "final warning", because then if by chance they don't get blocked, they just get more bold. (Five final warnings and nothing happened! I can do whatever I want!) ··coelacan 01:57, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
The same thought ran through my mind as I did that... I considered placing them as a series of third-level warnings and locating them above the final Mars warning, but decided against it for reasons that my brain has yet to entirely figure out. I completely agree with your reasoning, though: I often happen upon talk pages with dozens of final warnings within the same month -- often with some users cycling back to 1st or 2nd level warnings... but alas, that is a rant for an entirely different day. I still like my enumerating, but I'll try and make sure I don't overdo final warnings (as well as spot final warnings for edits occurring after the ones I have arrived for). Thanks again! --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 02:19, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Jersey Shore Shark Attacks of 1916

Could you please tell me why you removed my 1916sharkattacks website from the page? I plan on it becoming the most comprehensive website covering the attacks. I am sorry if this comment is in the wrong place. I have no idea how to contact people using this. -James —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.83.119.251 (talk) 01:09, 10 May 2007 (UTC) (UTC)

Thank you for your interest in attracting more knowledge to the subject, but Wikipedia has numerous policies in place to ensure that our information comes from verifiable sources. The website you refer to appears to be a personal website, which in itself is not necessarily bad: there are numerous personally-run websites which are indeed warehouses of useful information. However, this website is not particularly developed at the moment. When the website develops into a more comprehensive website, it may be worth reconsideration; but more likely the sources of information which you use for the website should be directly used as the references for Wikipedia. You may wish to review the following three policies, which help to define what is appropriate for external links, references, and what is typically considered to constitute spam: WP:EL, WP:ATT, WP:SPAM. Feel free to contact me on my talk page if you should have any further questions. Sláinte! --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 01:50, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply! I realize my site is not developed at all right now. I must admit I am not too good at creating websites. But most of the references I have for the site do not come from the internet but from many books I have read, emails with the authors of those books, movies I have seen, and some is my own research. Most of what is on the internet about the story, does not do it justice. This includes the wikipedia page that desperately needs to be elaborated on. Also take for example the weird New Jersey link: In the article many of the names are misspelled, Ages of the victims are wrong, the date of the matawan attack is incorrect, certain "facts" are incorrect and the article is very short. This might not be a big deal to most people, but to someone who is obsessed with this hystorical NJ event, it is troublesome. But thanks again for your detailed reply and explaination of the situation.-James

Richard Winters

Hi, just in regards to my recent edit of Richard Winter's article, the reason i deleted the section i did was because it conflicts with the article on the Brécourt Manor Assault in regards to who was defending the position...i'm looking into which article is indeed correct but from what i've read so far it seems more likely that the Brécourt article is correct. There are numerous websites supporting both claims. Perhaps i shouldnt have deleted the sentence but rather re-worded it. If you can find evidence supporting the German 709th Static Infantry Division or 6th Fallschirmjäger Regiment and source it then feel free to change it again. sorry about the not signing posts, i do try to make a point of always doing it but it slips my mind occasionally.

Vehicle tracking system

Hello this is David Isom. I added V-SOL as an example as of both of thoseexmaples quoted mean nothing to UK and and Europeans. V-SOL is a recognised brand in the UK with over 10 years of providing subscription services to Public and private sectors in the UK and Europe. As wikipedia is not just aimed at the US it is helpful for readers. I would therfore like to add V-SOL as a valid and menaingful example. We also provide services for charitable organiisations see our news articles for confirmation.

You raise an excellent point. I agree that the two businesses listed are focused toward North America, but on the other hand: I do not wish to start (or steepen) a slippery slope of business names and links by adding yet another. I have attempted to rephrase that particular paragraph to remove the names of specific businesses, which should hopefully eliminate the issue altogether. Thank you for explaining your concerns. If you would like to discuss the issue further, I have copied this discussion to the article's talk page. Sláinte! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:13, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Edits in Category Forms of English and its sub categories, e.g. English dialects

Reasons to the edits:

1. There are MANY pages linked under Forms of English and English dialects which can be grouped into sub categories(easier to read). Some pages cannot be grouped into subCATs kept in main CAT.
2. Important pages and pages difficult to decide to group in main CATs and subCATs kept its links in both main CAT and subCATs.

Here, P. Dutch Eng is an English dialect, it has links under the CAT American English, which is a already a subCAT of English dialects. Most readers know American English is a group of English dialects. Readers can see the link of the CAT English dialects when they click the link to the CAT America English. And the "Template:English dialects" in the page make it less need to have one more link to CAT English dialects in the bottom. So in similar other cases. It may not be good to have all dialects's links in the Cat "English dialects"(there would be too many) than group them into easy known subCATs. Anyway p[s make u r good edits.Apple0142E 11:19, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

I think I get the gist of what you are attempting to say -- just make sure to try and include coherent edit summaries with your changes so that your edits are not misunderstood as vandalism. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 18:05, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Parkway categories

Please watch for duplicates when adding categories - for example, you added a second instance of Category:Canadian parkways to Ottawa River Parkway. Dl2000 18:03, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Regarding Baltimore-Washington Parkway, the category was changed from Category:United States parkways to Category:American parkways because the category wordings were equivalent, and it was assumed there were duplicate categories to be consolidated. It wasn't clear from the category names that a distinction was intended for U.S. federal parkways. However, for the federal parkways, the category should be returned with naming such as Category:American federal parkways under Category:American parkways to make the federal/non-federal distinction clearer. Dl2000 18:25, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Gotcha. I'll see about renaming the federal category as Category:United States federal parkways. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 18:46, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

OK, looking good. However, for proper subcategorisation, you may want to move the Category:United States federal parkways from under Category:Parkways to under Category:American parkways (that is, change the cat on the Category:United States federal parkways page from Parkways to American parkways, similar to how Category:Parkways in New York City is done). I'll let you work on that. Dl2000 19:12, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Google Earth Image Permissions

Hi... I saw your SD tag on en:Image:GoogleEarth_Image.jpg. Have you seen Google's FAQ on permissions? Here's the link: http://earth.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=21422

There's certainly a problem with en:User:Paulkondratuklovesginger claiming to be the copyright holder, but since Google only requires attribution for non-commercial use, is the image really a copyvio on Wikipedia? I'll confess to total ignorance on the subject, but it looked to me from the FAQ that while the licensing tag will certainly have to be changed, the image may be usable with attribution. --Rrburke(talk) 03:04, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Yep, your link provides the answer quite clearly: it's OK to use online (in general); but the user fails in meeting Google's requirement by claiming the work as his own. Additionally, as Google prohibits commercial use of their imagery, they are not permissible for use within the Wikimedia Foundation. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 03:09, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Hi... thanks for answering. Is use on Wikipedia "commercial use"? --Rrburke(talk) 03:12, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Ye-up, check out this info for tips on what is and is not OK for uploading to the Wikimedia Foundation. FYI, if you would like to upload photos, it is generally preferred that you do so on Wikimedia Commons, which allows users on other Wikipedias (i.e. other languages, wiktionary, wikinews, etc.) to use your upload. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 03:27, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Permission to use aerial image of City of London

Dear Bossi: I'd like to your image of the aerial view of City of London (with the "egg" building in the center) for my company AIG's employee publication, Contact, for one time use only in the December issue. The quarterly publication is mailed free to all employees and not commercially sold to outside entities.

What do I need to do to use the image -- in jpg format and in at least 300 dpi resolution? Do you send me the image separately? As you can see, I'm a new user and my questions are that of a novice, so pelase pardon my ignorance. My work # 212-770-3153. Thank you.

Sounds good! There is no issue with using the image with a free publication so long as it is attributed: anything along the lines of "Image provided by Andrew Bossi" or something of that nature. To save the image, just follow this link, right-click on the image, and left-click on "Save Image". That is the best-quality aerial image I have available, so hopefully it fits your needs for the publication. If that's the wrong image, just locate the correct one and do the same thing -- all my images within my gallery generally have the same licenses, but you're welcome to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns. Thanks for checking! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:46, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Another image question

Hi, Bossi. Thanks for answering my question about image-licensing. I have another one, if it's not too much of an imposition. It involves the use of this image in this article. It's a political campaign presskit photo sourced from here. It's copyrighted, and the fair-use rationale is {{Non-free promotional}}. However, I'm concerned that the fair-use rationale offered on the image page doesn't address this problem:

Please note that our policy usually considers fair use images of living people that merely show what they look like to be replaceable by free-licensed images and unsuitable for the project. If this is not the case for this image, a rationale should be provided proving that the image provides information beyond simple identification or showing that this image is difficult to replace by a free-licensed equivalent.

I have tried to raise the issue with the editor who restored the image in this thread, but I have to confess to being way out of my depth on matters of image-licensing. Do you have advice about how to proceed?

A complicating factor is that the previous image used for the article, en:Image:John Tory Casual.jpg, has exactly the same problem. --Rrburke(talk) 04:04, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

You've honestly got me stumped on that one! The best I can say is to take the issue to the Village Pump, which usually gets good and speedy feedback. Good luck! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:01, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

NPOV regarding Tibet / China

Please review our policies relating to a neutral point of view. Do not remove Chinese categories on Tibetan media; rather, you are instead welcome to add Tibetan categories. This is not a place for pushing a political agenda: nearly anything relating to Tibet may also be said to relate to China, regardless of the politics of it all. Additionally, do not insult other users or deride their uploaded media. If you have problems with something, work it out rationally and diplomatically. Cheers. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 23:19, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, let's work it out diplomatically. Monks tortured, gassed. Nonviolent people. Propaganda spread, people killed. No excuse. If this all comes from one source, wouldn't you want to live free from harassment, torture, and oppression if you were harassed, tortured, and oppressed, your family murdered in cold blood, a spiritual leader forced to leave and flee from this harassment, in danger of being killed? The source of the Harrassment, torture, and oppression claims to own you. This machine has attacked and attempted to control people. Autonomous nodes + feelings, humanity, and sensitivity and intelligence like everyone else.
Then somebody, with good intentions (you) comes along and denies those people's natural birth right of autonomy, by putting their people in the category of the oppressors claiming to own them. That means you agree with the oppressors, that the Chiese government indeed own Tibet and Tibetans, which is not true. This is how I feel. --liberator
I am not stating my stance on the issue itself: rather, this is not the forum to discuss it. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 23:33, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
O yes, so you want to be gassed? (Not threatening you, I wouldn't do that anyway, I am just saying you surely have a point of view. I am saying idiocy is not how to edit. It is worse than praising the oppressor. Learn. Do you think torture is a silly online game, or something that people have to live their lives through. It is not a happy funtime game having to wake up and know there are people like I who have a lavish, luxurious, and priveliged life and see your family get tortured for speaking truth.) liberator
