) How does one upload images to Wikipedia? I'm very new to Wikipedia, just having started a week ago. I have some of the basics of creating articles and references, as well as transferring photos from Wikimedia. The articles that I've created and am about to create are all related to World War I. In some cases, I've been unable to find appropriate photos on Wikimedia or Wikipedia. Therefore, I contacted the International War Graves Photography Project this week and requested permission to use

, especially if it is their home town and they have put a lot of effort into creating articles of local interest about it. (Note: this is not '''my''' reaction, and I do try to avoid participating in these revert wars myself). In return for all this aggrevation, the gain in additional information is very small (after all users can just click on the Szczecin link and immediately see the German name, which will be mentioned there prominently). Taxman is right, let's wrap up this discussion

The only people here showing a non neutral point of view are those who vote against him because of the content in his user page or because he only edits about Islam. I'm Portuguese, am I being non neutral for not creating articles about Brunei?

, and the barangay officials. That's basically it. I'll give two more arguments why creating an article for each and every barangay is nuts: 1. The City of Manila has 897 barangays. '''All''' named like Barangay 1, Barangay 2, Barangay 3, etc. Each one is typically 1 city block in size, about 4 hectares. It's crazy creating articles for such. Most are homogenous enough in quality that I don't find any good reason to give an article to each and every one. Not worth it, and article management will be difficult. (Pasay City and Caloocan City have the same situation.) 2. Why stop at barangays? Why not create an article for every populated block itself? They all have time of first settlement, first zoning classification, etymology, description of the land, etc.: '''Block 7''' is a residential block of Arbortown Village of Barangay Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It was named such because the Arbortown Management decided to go with a numeric naming scheme. The land is relatively flat with less than 3 degrees of slope. Since Block 7 is classified as light residential commercial under the city's zoning scheme, the economy relies on property and commercial taxes from it's residents who occupy 60% of the 10 available lots in the block. 2 residents have also put up ''Sari-sari stores'' within their properties, Aling Lydia's Sari-Sari Store and Samson Cafeteria. These provide consumer services for the block and other surrounding blocks like Block 6, Block 9, and Block 10. Block 7 is bounded by Narra Street to the north, Acacia Street to the east, Ipil-Ipil Street to the south, and Arbortown Avenue to the west, the main motorway of the village. The block was first settled in 1992 (at Lot 4) with the arrival of immigrants from La Union province who decided to relocate to the metropolis in search of opportunities. Other settlers have similar histories. That plausible article above is even less of a stub than the barangay articles already created, yet very, very few people will argue that we want such articles. There is a line we need to draw somewhere. Articles on U.S. places have the benefit of a centralized U.S. Census database filled with detailed information and ripe for harvest by the Rambot. The Philippines have no such database with nowhere near as rich a data as the U.S. one, and I very much doubt that there will be such a database in the short- to mid-term future. --seav (User:Seav) 11:45, 18 October 2005 (UTC) **Whoever is writing these stubs is doing a good job. He is putting links to local government web pages in there, which gives other editors a source for future content. He appears to be following the perfect stub guidelines. We already have rambot articles for similar communities in the US. See Argenta, IL. I've been to Argenta. It is a midwestern town, about 6 blocks square, with less than a thousand people who all work somewhere else. There are probably thousands of hamlets just like Argenta, but each has its own article, thanks to the rambot. And you know what? I think that's just great. Someday, there will be a map interface to Wikipedia where you can go and click on geographic locations and link right into articles (hey Google, are you listening?). It will be really neat. There is absolutely no reason the same functionality shouldn't be available worldwide. If every census place in the US gets an article, then so be it for all nations. --Mm35173 (User:Mm35173) 16:13, 17 October 2005 (UTC) Involvement in foreign policy On July 18, 1980, Solarz became the first American public official to visit North Korea since the end of the Korean War, and the first to meet with Kim Il-sung. Facts on File 1980 Yearbook p 547 In the 1980s, he chaired the Asian and Pacific Affairs Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, an area of growing interest to the American people in that decade. He is remembered for his leadership on the Philippines. He left Manila just as Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. (Benigno Aquino, Jr.) was coming home to challenge President (President of the Philippines) Ferdinand E. Marcos (Ferdinand Marcos). Following Aquino's assassination, Solarz returned to Manila for the funeral and proceeded to push the Reagan administration to distance itself from the Marcos government (History of the Philippines (1965–1986)). Shortly after Marcos left for exile in Hawaii, Solarz was at one of the opulent palaces and publicized Imelda (Imelda Marcos)'s massive shoe collection. He worked closely with Aquino's widow, Corazon (Corazon Aquino), who became president, and who dubbed him the "Lafayette (Gilbert du Motier, marquis de Lafayette) of the Philippines."

or contributions to Wikipedia, are there any about which you are particularly pleased, and why? ::'''A'''. I have created many of the articles about Bangladesh and its culture (close to 150 articles). I recently finished creating articles and expanding most of them, for the 64 Districts of Bangladesh. I have started many of the articles on the Rivers of Bangladesh and other geographical features. I created many articles on :Category:Bangladeshi people and expanded them to full article

levels (for example: Munier Chowdhury). I like my work in creating articles on Bangladeshi culture, for example, my article on Bangla Calendar. I have created or contributed to many articles on Bangladesh Liberation War. I also have added Bangla language names and Bangla text to many biographical articles, place names, and the anthems related to Bangladesh and India. Outside Bangladesh related topics, I cleaned up the country article on Pakistan, and settled a dispute
