Hi - I've responded at Talk:Goldberg Variations, and sorry, but I've taken out the bit in the article about the aria not being the theme but the first variation. If we talk about the piece as a chaconne, then it doesn't make sense to say that aria is the theme, because chaconnes don't have themes as such; but as we're saying the thing that follows the aria is "variation 1", I don't see how we can say the aria is "the first variation" as well. Hope you don't mind about this too much. Anyway, keep up the good work --Camembert

Quoting from Williams is OK (though it should be clear that it's a direct quote, and not "the truth", because not everybody sees the piece in that way), but I think it needs some explanation, because the average reader (of which I am one) is not going to understand how the theme can be the first variation, and the thing that follows the theme be the first variation as well. I mainly dabble around the music pages, by the way, but stick my head in just about anywhere every now and then. --Camembert

Hi Bev - I've just posted an idea for how to reorganise the Goldberg article at Talk:Goldberg Variations. Please don't take this the wrong way - I really like the stuff you're writing, I'm just not sure that Williams' views on the piece ought to be given so much prominence. --Camembert


Hi there. Good to see some new articles on literature etc. (your Queneau webpage is great fun, BTW). Quick note about Pyrrhic: I've tidied up the 3 versions of this that were kicking around. If something is known by several names, only one name gets a page; the others should be made as #REDIRECT pages. -- Tarquin 00:08 Feb 24, 2003 (UTC)



We generally use the simples or most obvious name for a page, to make it easy to link. I'm not sure why we need "Pyrrha" in other meanings. "Pyrrhic victory", you're right, should probably never become an article since it would be a dictionary definition. I wasn't thinking when I restored that line, fel free to remove it again. -- Tarquin 13:20 Feb 24, 2003 (UTC)


Bev, I encourage you to write a paragraph or two at Peter Armitage to get that article off the ground. :) Kingturtle 16:35 May 11, 2003 (UTC)

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 2000 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)

Replaceable fair use File:Boxley Street housing, Peabody, Silvertown, London.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Boxley Street housing, Peabody, Silvertown, London.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{Di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:48, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
