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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

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:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

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)

User:Manfred Riebe[edit]

...was banned from the german Wiki because he only advertised his personal "holy war" angainst a reform of the rules for writing in german language. When he was asked to stop this he became very very impolite and did very nasty things. User:MutterErde was also banned for trolling around (still I like her, because she has a good sense of humor).

My advice would be to leave them alone, you won´t find any useful work done by the first and a strage affection for porno starlets in the second. de:Benutzer:Dickbauch 195.37.188.216 11:54, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Diktat[edit]

Ciao Snow. Ok appare sul Secolo, ma e' sempre Travaglio che parla e dice "diktat". sempre Lui. Quello che intendo dire, lontano dai riflettori della discussione in italia, tutta questa guerra mi sembra sterile e non da a WIKI credibilita'. Diciamocelo chiaro, il titolo e' fazioso e assolutamente usato dai denigratori di berlusconi. Poi mi puoi dire "a me piace cosi'", ma sei un Admin di WIKI e a volte quallo che ti piace non e' quello che dovrebbe essere su WIKI. La voce non e' cosi' difficile da trattare, ma occorre fare un passo indietro e cercare un punto di vista che abbracci la cosa senza politica. Se almeno si riuscisse a fare su WIKI... visto che come dicono i miei amici americani (io ho vissuuto 10 anni qui in ameirca) siamo divisi nella nostra mente dal un muro di berlino : tutto e' destra o sinistra..... Il mio punto e' tuto qui. Con stima (forse mal riposta.... skerzo!) The Lone Rangerwrite-me 13:02, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Snow. non so cosa dirti. Se il titolo e' fazioso (come tu stesso ammetti), vuole dire che ha nel suo DNA un errore. pensa ad un redirect dalle varie voci "editto bulgaro" "diktat bulgaro" etc per farlo confluire su "dichiarazione .... " sarebbe senza dubbio piu WIKI e sicuramente NNPOV. vedi tu.

Ma ci stiamo ripetendo addosso e mi spiace. Su spider, ho visto la votazione per bandirlo. E' una bravo ragazzo, ci mette passione ... magari non essere troppo duro... The Lone Rangerwrite-me 14:29, 28 March 2006 (UTC)


Oscuramento[edit]

Ciao Snowdog, ho visto che la it.wiki e' stata oscurata.... Pesantina la azione posta in essere. Ma quale voce e' stata considerata lesiva a tal punto da imporre l'oscuramento? Ciao ps lasciami un messaggio su theloneranger@libero.it The Lone RangerSend an S.O.S to the world


Sgunt??[edit]

Snowdog. non comprendo il tuo messaggio. Comportarmi come? The Lone RangerSend an S.O.S to the world 17:21, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Sgrunt[edit]

Si riferisce a me. Crede che tu sia Spiderman, ovvero me. Comunque gli sto ricordando che un admin non dovrebbe essere così aspro contro la gente. Quei 'Bastard' e così via se li é meritati pienamente. Anche se, sinceramente, non so chi sia quel tizio. Spiderman's revenge 19:29, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

(Snow scusa l'abuso...) Lascio un messaggio al sedicente Sgrunt, presso la discussione dell'amico SnowDog. Sgrunt, io non so le tue motivazioni (ne sinceramente mi interessano), ma mi hai mandato nei casini per il tuo comportamento, ovvero mi hai mandato nei casini perche' tu ti firmi Spiderman, ma c'e' un altro utente spiderman con cui condivido casa. Ergo, io vado nei casini, mentre tu ti nascondi dietro proxi, IP fantasma etc e rimani inpunito. Almeno, potresti almeno scagionare la mia appartenenza alla tua trama con Snow. Questo lo apprezzerei.

LoneRanger[edit]

Quattro cose:

  1. Io non so chi sia questo tipo di cui sopra, ne me ne importa.... basta per favore che non mi tiriate dentro una vostra guerra personale di cui faccio sinceramente a meno. Ricevo messaggi sulla mia posta elettronica da parte di utenti che mi caldeggiano per cose che non ho fatto, ricevo messaggi qui per dirmi di smettere cose che non ho fatto e di andare a difendermi su it.wiki. Snow, non mi conosci, ma sai bene come ho lavorato in it.wiki. (Ho ricevuto anche un messaggio ad Ilario che mi chiedeva di difendermi in qualche voce (credo diktat bulgaro) su cose che ormai ho abbandonato.)
  2. Tuo commento mi offende, ho capito era dettato dalla frustrazione, ma rimane un approccio troppo aprioristico e aggressivo non giustificato nei miei confronti. Sai i miei contributi in it.wiki che non sono pochi e di alto profilo e sai il mio tono strutturato alle cose. Non faccio vandalismi (che sono facili a rollbackkare).
  3. Visto che il pirla tizio che insegui e' la causa dei messaggi per cui mi chiamavi in causa, almeno stendilo cosi che non si spacci per me o per altri dei miei amici e contrinbuisca a gettare benzina sul fuoco.
  4. Per quanto rigurada Alberto, da quanto ho capito sono successe cose strane di vandalismi, denuncie finte, e altre cose strane. Ma visto che stupido non e' io gli credo, in quanto nessuno si spara nei "gioielli della corona" per far dispetto alla moglie... Ma questo mi sembra troppo sottile per alcuni in it.wiki.

A questi punti di cui sopra, spero trovi adeguate risposte ed argomentazioni. Mi rimane un interrogativo ma non so se sia di da condividere a "bocce calde", visto che riguarda Gian o Giac(admin che mi ha fatto arrabbiare), Spiderman, le email che ho ricevuto e Sgurz qui sopra.

the REAL name: Trentino-Alto Adige[edit]

So I did some research and checked with some pretty credible sources as to what they print, in ENGLISH, for the name of this region (and province) in Italy.

  • Fodor's - a well recognized and respected name (and expert guide) has regional and local publications that show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".
  • Michelin - also expert in travel guides - has regional and local publications that show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bozen".
  • Rand McNally (name speaks for itself) has world, regional, and local publications that show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".
  • Streetwise Map's regional, and local publications show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".
  • Dorling Kindersley or "DK" - by far, probably the best travel guides available - has regional and local publications that show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".
  • Lonely Planet (the self-proclaimed largest independently-owned travel guide) regional, and local publications show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".
  • Hammond Map - a subsidiary of Langenscheidt Publishing Group (a privately-held German publishing company) - has regional and local publications that show the region and local names of "Trentino-Alto Adige", "Alto Adige", and "Bolzano".

As far as proof, I am quite sure that the above sources are credible enough, especially in the sense of geographical knowledge, expertise, and English-translation. Rarelibra 04:01, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

I told you this because a long time ago you voted against changing the name of the page back to the proper name. I am informing everyone who voted no. Rarelibra 00:38, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Defamatory material[edit]

Wikipedia is a wiki, which means anyone can edit it, and I am astonished you think someone should need permission to remove defamatory material about themselves from any Wikipedia page. Jayjg (talk) 00:57, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

A wiki is a wiki; anyone can edit. Defamation is defamation; no-one should do it. The Foundation would not approve. Jayjg (talk) 15:34, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Caro Roberto, grazie per i tuoi interventi, anche se non c'è peggior sordo... --Cloj 17:32, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Motivo[edit]

Amico amministratore, Leoman3000 vuole mettermi al bando in in sezione italiana ma non ha motivo per farlo!!!! In questo commento non stanno attacchi personali perchè prima puoi leggere -Propongo quindi che si rimuova quanto prima quel ridicolo annuncio NPOV. --Mariogab 23:47, 15 gen 2008- rivolto a me da altro utente!!!! Poi la messa al bando definitivo è un atto importante contro utenti davvero dannosi: ma io che ho fatto di così grave???? Inoltre è previsto un voto per mettere al bando!!!! Puoi intervenire qui onde evitare una palese violazione di regolamento da parte di Leoman!!!! Amichevoli saluti.--PIO (talk) 17:19, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Six Nations[edit]

It's all right.I'm using the sandbox. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Matthewharding3 (talkcontribs) 09:59, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

We need to make a request to an Admin. But I am sure that they will get tired of it soon, no doubt it is all the same person playing. It only takes a second to revert. FFMG (talk) 10:08, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for making the request. I agree that a couple of days should be more than enough. FFMG (talk) 10:12, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Sandro Mazzinghi (1962).jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Sandro Mazzinghi (1962).jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ΔT The only constant 02:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
