Image:1173919492.half.xavierrottweiler p1010062 disp800.jpg[edit]

Hello Xavier,

This is in regards to Image:1173919492.half.xavierrottweiler p1010062 disp800.jpg. It has not been tagged with a copyright status. This can be a complicated area, so I can try to help if you need any. The Wikipedia Image use policy may give some background, but it isn't policy here.

To deal with this image, there are a few choices:

  • If you are the copyright holder, release it under a free license, for example:
  • If you are asserting that this image is usable under fair use, add an appropriate fair use tag. A very basic summary is that fair use is used for commentary, criticism and review on the image when no free image could be used instead. Some fair use tags are:
    • Logos: {{logo}}
    • Covers: {{Cover}}
    • Comic panels: {{Comic-panel}}
  • If the image is already under a free license, provide information on the license, and tag the image if you can.
  • If you would like the image to be deleted, ask any administrator

To see a list of current copyright tags available on WikiFur, see Category:Image copyright tags If the copyright status is not resolved, the image may be deleted.

Unless you have a question for me specifically, I'd prefer responses on the page for the image. --Rat 05:45, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Category:Rottweiler Fursuits[edit]

Hello Xavier. I am deleting the category "Category:Rottweiler Fursuits", as this is not how things are categorised on WikiFur. Fursuiters are listed under Category:Fursuiters, and it is not our practise to sub-divide into fursuit species. --Higgs Raccoon 17:41, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Simiarly, Xavier, in regards to categories. We have a system of categories and don't put articles about people into Category:Fursuits (instead we used Category:Fursuiters, which is already on the article about you) and nor do we include broader species categories: there is Category:Rottweiler characters on the article about you, so Category:Dog characters is not necessary there. -- Sine 05:14, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

"User page" vs "User talk page"[edit]

Hi. As a user/contributor, your "User page" is off limits to all users, coming to be almost a "personal" section on this Wiki (almost-Sysops.) "User talk pages" in the other hand, are open to the public, and such, not open to "blanking" (removal of all public/Sysop comments.) Just FYI - Spirou 20:05, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Use Preview, Please[edit]

When making multiple edits to an article, please use the "Show preview" button to view intermediate changes, and try to limit use of the "Save page" button to when you are finished making all of your changes. Frequent use of "Save page" during editing tends to clutter the article's edit history and the site's change log. -- Sine 13:12, 24 October 2012 (EDT)

Hi, Xavier, please do pay attention to the above. -- Sine 14:31, 24 October 2012 (EDT)
