Ole Lund Kirkegaard[edit]

Hi Mwr. We engaged through the cultural center category discussion, but I just accidentally saw you material on Childrens books here on your page. Perhaps you can help me on a particular issue in this regard? Do you know, if the Danish writer of children's books Ole Lund Kirkegaard has been translated into English?

Assyrian deletion[edit]

Very little of what I upload is original "art" in the usual sense of that word. Most of it has a somewhat functional purpose (or could have a functional purpose), or is minor edits or fixups to images originally by other people. In any case, constantly starting new deletion nominations as soon as the previous one is closed with a "keep" is not generally approved behavior unless you have relevant new information to bring forward, and on the Assyrian deletion it didn't seem like you did have real new information (just things that you could have said earlier but didn't)...

Sorry if I unnecessarily offended you, but I think it would be better to give an adequate summary of reasons for deletion in your first nomination -- and if two decisions have gone against you, then maybe just give it a brief rest before renominating yet a third time...

File:Mexico portal.png[edit]

Hi there, thanks for sorting out copyright issues for images on Commons but can I suggest a bit more restraint on using Template:Copyvionote? The image was from years ago and even though two of the source images were subsequently deleted for copyvio, the copyvio on the montage was through no fault of my own. What's more is that this has been an inactive account and I was quite surprised to see activity on this account. Based on these two points I would've concluded that there was basically no risk of re-offending and therefore the strong wording on Template:Copyvionote would be unwarranted. Just my two cents. --Antilived (talk) 07:48, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I actually had no idea what that file was when you left the message and I still have no recollection of it - must've been a request on the WP graphics design group or something. But yeah thank you and keep up the good work! --Antilived (talk) 05:10, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks much[edit]

Thanks for pointing out about that book cover, totally no worries, I've got no objections if the {{PD-ineligible}} tag is disputed.

What do you think about this book cover?

Would the {{PD-ineligible}} tag work for that one?

Which cover are you referring to?

I asked at Village Pump and Jmabel said: "Ditto. In the U.S., a piece composed of straightforward typography and simple geometric shapes is never eligible for copyright."

Which cover were you talking about?

California Songbooks[edit]

I don't like to mess with images uploaded by others, so... the John A. Stone article in the English Wikipedia now has links to scanned copies of both of his songbooks. It might be useful to put those links into the copy that goes with your images of them. The existing links are just so-so. Lou Sander (talk) 23:27, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Maiolica/Majolica definition[edit]


In the English language, defined by the South Kensington Museum (V and A today) in the 1870's in two booklets, in the simplest terms Majolica is lead glaze, Maiolica is tin glaze. Dictionary definitions persist in treating the two words as interchangeable. THEY ARE NOT. One describes lead glaze pottery, the other describes tin glaze pottery. You only have to look at a collection of objects in each category to see how different they are.

I am a newbie to Wiki so please tell me what I should do next to advance the cause of clarity.

I should like to begin by moving your maiolica definition to the maiolica category in Wiki, along with the maiolica pictures currently residing in the MaJolica Category.

Thanks and best wishes,


Majolica/Maiolica categories[edit]

Thanks MWR for your quick response. I will attempt the project 'Separate MAJOLICA from MAIOLICA in Wikipedia' with your blessing. David
