Regarding: http://www.wikihow.com/Image:Jake_257.jpg Hey there,

Just wanted to let you know that unfortunately, I had to remove an image that you have uploaded. Here's some general advice about images that may be of assistance:

  • Copyrighted images (most commonly found through Google Images, blogs, etc) cannot be used without explicit written permission from the original owner. These include video captures from YouTube or other videos uploaded to the internet. Please make sure to upload only images that you either created yourself (with a phone, webcam, or your own camera) or can confirm the license for.
  • If you wish to use a copyrighted image on wikiHow, you must obtain explicit written permission from the original owner before uploading it here.
  • Stock photography, even when purchased, cannot be uploaded to wikiHow due to the sublicensing terms applied. You can read more about it through http://www.wikihow.com/wikiHow:Image-Licensing-Guidelines
  • To find freely licensed images to share on wikiHow, you can check out How to Import Freely Licensed Images Into wikiHow.
  • If you have seen an image that is already on wikiHow (such as in an article) and you would like to use it, rather than re-uploading it, please click on the image to go to its image page. On the bottom of the picture, you will see a wikitext code that you are more welcome to use.

If you have any questions about images or need assistance to determine whether an image is copyrighted, please don't hesitate to contact me by clicking on the "Reply to Maluniu" link below.

Hi there,

I don't know your age, but just in case you are not an adult, I'm leaving you this message. wikiHow asks that personal information not be posted if you are under the age of 13.

It would be helpful to everyone, including yourself, if you would not post your real name, age, birthday, grade at school, home address, email address, city of residence, phone number, name of your school or any other personal identifiable information. If found, this type of information may be removed from wikiHow.

For more safety tips, please read How to Be Safe on the Internet and How to Be a Safe and Smart Kid on wikiHow. Thanks!

Greetings 1998wizard,

It has come to my attention that you have uploaded the image(s) listed below. However, you didn't provide a license for them.

Image:Center_of_gravity_as_a_triangle_468.png

The majority of the unlicensed images that are uploaded to wikiHow come from the following places and are not allowed on the site without a valid CC license or permission:

  • Images from Google Images search or search engines
  • Blogs or forum posts
  • Anime sites
  • WWE.com or any wrestling fan site
  • Websites with copyrighted cited on the bottom of the page(s)
  • Photobucket, Imageshack, or other image uploading sites
  • Facebook, MySpace, or other social networking sites

Self-made images are allowed. If you took a photo by yourself, please reply to this message and I will note it as being OK to share on wikiHow. Alternatively, you can do this yourself by clicking on the image's link above, then the Edit tab at the top, and typing {{Self}} in the text box.

Many people don't realize what is allowed and what is not allowed, so there is an image search available on wikiHow. Please click on the Find Free Photos link on the left hand side of the wikiHow screen to access it. This will search for images within Flickr and Wikimedia Commons with a valid CC or similar license.

It would also be useful if the website URL was given in the summary box to avoid confusion and to help others determine where the image originally came from.

Please reply back to me as soon as possible. To do so click on the bottom link of this message (the "Reply to Sarah S") and leave a message on my talk page. Also, please note that the images will be deleted between 7 to 14 days of this message, if there is no reply or license. Thanks!

Let me make this clear.

I AM NOT POSTING MY AGE ON AN INTERNET SITE! If anyone else asks anything related to my age, I will remove the comment and will write their name on my userpage under a tab that says: Users who don't obey Wikihow Rules.

Thank you, 1998wizard

Hiyas,

Regarding: http://www.wikihow.com/index.php?title=User_talk:DMc2811/wikiArt/Manga&oldid=3293340

The numbering is breaking because you have line breaks between the steps. Each new step must begin on the very next line from the previous, any space between the steps and the numbering resets.

To avoid this either place the next step on the next line, or use HTML lists which are not affected by this.

Regards,
om.

Hi, I was looking at your welcome message and had some thoughts on it. For a welcome message, it's a tad too long. You want the user to understand a general concept of the site when they first create an account, not turn them away with loads of information. People will learn new stuff every time they edit. IMO, the most important in a welcome message is the bottom links. So if you want, you can disregard most of the stuff, put in a 2-3 personal sentence and the links. It's short and to the point ;)

Also, it's recommended to have created templates in userspaces, so I deleted the template namespace one.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Thanks for welcoming new users :) I'm happy you are sharing your enthusiasm for wikiHow with newcomers to our community - this is exactly the sort of personal touch that makes wikiHow special. However, I need to let you know that your personal welcome doesn't match up with our guidelines. It's important that any personal welcome message appeal to all users; yours is very friendly, but may not appeal to users of all sorts.

Because your welcome had formatting and color problems, I chose to temporarily replace your custom welcome with the standard welcome template until yours could be fixed. I'm sorry to do this, and don't want to discourage you, but I firmly believe that we need to always put our best foot forward with new contributors. I will be happy to help you improve your welcome template if you would like. You can also find some good examples at the bottom of our guideline page linked above. Thanks again.

Hey there,

Thanks for your note. Actually I didn't block you. And a quick check of the block log shows that no one has blocked you. So if you couldn't edit here it may be because someone who shares your IP (probably a sibling at your house, or a school mate at your school) did something that got them blocked, and your account got caught for 24 hours by that same block.

I'd be delighted to have you apply for NAB, but you don't have enough experience here yet. We typcially require NAB editors to have at least 300 article namespace edits before applying. I hope you will contact me again when you reach that level of experience. More info about NAB is here: http://www.wikihow.com/Become-a-New-Article-Booster-on-wikiHow

Thanks again.

Regarding Draw a Star of David (Six Pointed Star):

Hi 1998wizard. Thank you for starting a new article on wikiHow!

I noticed that a title you started is very similar to a title we already have. It looks like they might be duplicates! On wikiHow, we consider two articles to be duplicates when their titles are practically interchangeable (even if the content is different). When we find a duplicate, we then work to make make sure all the information ends up consolidated on one page, typically the one with the simpler, more commonly searched title. That way, our readers can find everything about that particular topic in one place.

If you agree that the title you started is a duplicate, you can help by adding your how-to advice to the other page. The duplicate page will eventually get redirected to the other page, and we don't want to lose all the great information you provided. If you don't think your article is actually a duplicate, feel free to leave a note on the discussion page explaining why, and let me know, too. Sometimes we make mistakes, and we definitely don't want to merge it if it is different!

If you have any questions or need help with anything, just reply to this message. Thanks again for contributing!

  • Shorten Article (please)
  • See if Table of Contents needs removing
  • Add more step-by-step photos
  • Change name (I would read this if I just wanted to search on Google, let alone do all this stuff!)

thanks for the idea. Can you send me a URL with a few of these problem articles? It sounds like they might easily be handled with nfd|inc for incomplete article. On the other hand if they have good info, but are just formatted differently so they don't have steps, that is generally OK. Does that make sense?
