Catholic-Hierarchy.orgEdit

Hello. I noticed that you have edited a number of articles on Catholicism. A discussion is taking place as to whether the website Catholic-Hierarchy.org is a reliable source that can be utilized on Wikipedia or whether all references and information derived from it should be deleted. This topic is currently being discussed at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard [1]. As the website's removal as a reference will affect several thousand Wikipedia articles, I believe that the broadest range of opinions should be obtained before action is taken. Please contribute if interested.Patapsco913 (talk) 22:07, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Patricia E. RyanEdit

Thanks for the review! But I don't understand how you intuit that there's no plagiarism because 10 sources were cited. I could have copied from all of them. There is a handy toolbox to the right of every nomination which includes tools like Earwig's and Duplicate Detector to check for close paraphrasing. Best, Yoninah (talk) 20:33, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that out. I have replied on the nomination page, and I hope I made it clearer what I meant, since you're correct in saying that the number of sources cited doesn't in any way guarantee originality. — AJDS talk 21:52, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:AKAshield2.pngEdit

Thank you for uploading File:AKAshield2.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:14, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
