Happy New Year[edit]

Hallo Alan. In reference to the files you removed on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:International_Sailing_Schools_Association You left me a messasge, telling that "The main problem is that in Commons isn't allowed fair use material. Deleted image it is copyrighted by the ISSA and it is considered a copyright violation. " Ok. I will remove the markings on the pictures. However you have removed also "Training_Scheme_Structure-1.jpg" that was not marked as copyrighted. I did those markings on the other images. If I remove them, will I be able to upload them again? I do have the rights to them and I did granted wikipedia with the license. There is an information about that on the submission page "An email containing details of the permission for this text has been sent in accordance with WP:OTRS". I cannot get to grips with how to communicate here. I hope this information will reach You. Regards and a Happy New Year Wodnikprasowy (talk) 16:16, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
