Request an account process needs help[edit]

Hello everyone, I'm Callanecc, an administrator on account creation interface. Recently, our project has had an increased backlog in getting accounts for new users. Our numbers are currently over 250 people waiting for accounts on the English Wikipedia. If you could even spare a moment to do a few requests a day to help us clear this backlog, that would go a long way to encouraging new editors to participate with an account. If this interests you and you're willing to help, and you match the following description, then please do apply! Ideal users are:

We have a very friendly team to help you get started, we also have a private IRC channel where you can ask questions or get help with difficult account requests. If you have any questions for us or about the process, feel free to ask at the talkpage. If you can help out, we would greatly appreciate it. For the ACC team, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Callanecc (talkcontribs) 19:32, December 4, 2013‎

Images not belonging to the uploader on Flickr[edit]

On Flickr I found this pic of Nicki Aycox. I want to uuse this on the article about the actress but the uploader of this pic says the picture is not taken by him potentially meaning that the uploader might have himself committed copyright violations. However this pic is free to use commercially, adapt modify and build upon but there's no telling whether the original pic might have been free to use commercially or not. Should I upload it or not? Thank you. KahnJohn27 (talk) 13:32, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
