Template:Automatic archive navigator Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to Wikipedia. Thanks for your help! I hope you stay around for a while and help contribute some more. Here are a few pages that are good references as you get used to making edits on Wikipedia:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! When you leave messages on Talk pages or when voting, you can sign your name by leaving three tildes: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) leaves your user name and a timestamp. If you have any questions, you can look through the help pages, post a question at the village pump or leave me a question on my talk page.

Thanks again, and welcome to Wikipedia! -JJLeahy

Please don't just tag an article - explain.

You placed a {{Limitedgeographicscope}} tag on Wikipedia:Fair use. Could you expand on that? As in any volunteer project, helping to fix the problem will assist in getting it fixed quicker.

"Fair use" is a US-specific legal doctrine. It is relevant to the project since the Wikipedia servers are in the United States. Is your question to do with how far it is applicable for a non-US user uploading a picture originally copyrighted outside the United States? —Morven 21:02, Jun 19, 2005 (UTC)

Willing to translate

Hello Yannick,

Dutch is my native language, and I'm willing to translate the dutch article on Auteursrecht (copyright). However, Wikipedia is new to me and I'm still learning the markup language. In case I haven't worked out the markup in let's say a week, is it agreeable to you if I provide you with the raw translation so you can process it further?

Thanks for your kind welcome on my user talk page, your additions to my user page have been most welcome. I've finished translating now, and the Netherlands copyright law article has been created. I've placed a Wikification requested notice at the top, but nothing else, like a notice telling the article has been translated from the Dutch article. A link on the Copyright page has been placed. Would you be so kind as to go to the Translation into English page and remove the request and create an entry in the Completed Translations part? Also, I'm no legal expert at all (I'm a biology student) and my translations of the names of rights and laws are probably way off. Could you take a look at that? Finally, translating was a hard but rewarding task, and I will study Wiki markup in the following days and take care of the page. :) Ivo. Ivo van der Horst 2 July 2005 00:44 (UTC)
