Howdy![edit]

Howdy! FYI, your edits to South China Sea pages may well be facts, but with the exception of the edit you made a few minutes ago, they contain NO supporting references, and they read like they are simply your own opinion. Please be more careful - less neutral editors than me, (and possibly me too), are likely to revert edits that do not have supporting references. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 14:28, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Phyllis Margaret Cilento Maslen - daughter of Raphael Cilento[edit]

Hi. I found a photo of a young Margo Maslen and wondered if you want to add it to the Raphael Cilento page. (her father). It is on this page ... http://angustrumble.blogspot.com.au/2009/12/aunt-anne-abroad-v.html The photo is of 3 men and one woman - Margo - on a boat. The photo above it is of one man in a turtle neck jumper rowing a boat 'Umberto'. Irmgarde (talk) 11:35, 15 October 2014 (UTC) IrmgardeIrmgarde (talk) 11:35, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Irmgarde: wondered if you want to add it to the Raphael Cilento page. - Thanks! I'm having ISP problems at the moment (Optus WIFI). Will reply soon, I hope! Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 11:51, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
a) On this page, (http://angustrumble.blogspot.com.au/2009/12/aunt-anne-abroad-iv-further-south-and.html), is a picture (380x400px, 1520x1600px, but covered in dust specs), with the caption: All tourists went swimming in the famous Blue Grotto. “Cynthia, Me, Liz, Margot, taken by Umberto the boatman at Capri.” Me = Anne Pearson Hall (née Borthwick) - Aunt Anne, older sister of Helen, Angus Trumble's mother. Margot = Phyllis Margaret Cilento Maslen??
Note that this page also contains [1] with the caption: On the way back to England by way of the Riviera, the party went on another boat trip to see the Calanques at Cassis, not far from Marseilles. Left to right, André, Margaret Cilento [the artist; daughter of Sir Raphael and Lady Cilento, and older sister of the actress Diane Cilento], Boatman, and Nipper. (Nipper Strachan)
To me, the Margo in this photo doesn't look like the Margaret in this one. Sorry, I'm confused.
b) Unfortunately, it's not clear what the copyright(s) of these photos is/are. The various blog pages together imply they were taken circa 1950, which is less than 65 years ago. Until it is clear what the copyright status is, Wikipedia requires us to treat them as if they are still under copyright, and hence we can't use them without permission from the owner of the copyright. (Tedious, isn't it!)

19th Oct 2014 - Hello again. Yes I looks at both photos again. I would have thought the young woman with the plaits and hat was labeled as Margot Cilento. Also the text describes that photo and says this was meeting was a fleeting nod to fame. In her family are a number of red/sandy headed people. I think I remember her having a big head of upswept red hair. My mum knew her and I remember her from the 70's. I think I have seen an etching something like 'Chartres' in the home of a relative.
I'll try to contact the Blogger. He seems to be in a public position in the arts.
Women do dye their hair so hair colour can change.
I also saw a photo of Margaret Cilento here from 1954. Scroll down. [2]
Regards, Irmgarde (talk) 02:00, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. Women do dye their hair so hair colour can change. - Agreed. However, looking at the facial features, she seems to look different in every picture! Even the two on [3] look different - but I guess there is 3 years between them ... I'll try to contact the Blogger. He seems to be in a public position in the arts. - Yes, he most certainly does. Good luck and best wishes, Pdfpdf (talk) 08:21, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
P.S. If you do contact him, please ask about the copyright on the photos. Pdfpdf (talk) 08:21, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Taiping Island[edit]

Non-free images[edit]

Hi, due to the fact that you seem a lot more experienced in wikimedia than me, I would like to ask for your advice on a matter.

Is it possible for me to upload a new version of a non-free image that has been approved by admins before? The reason I want to do so is because the current photo resized by Theo's Little Bot is too low res to meaningfully see anything. The photo will be resized nonetheless just not to the extent of Theo's little bot's resize.

Heres the image. You can see that its quite hard to see the ship depicted clearly and you probably wouldn't know that the thing in front was a stealth main gun. I hope to use a larger image that is 600x400 pixels large, up from the current 387x258 pixels but still a considerable downsize from the original 1000x667 pixels. I think that the 600x400 image is the smallest image which allows everyone to clearly see the ship and its features.

What do you think?
