Orphaned non-free image File:Tat1.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Tat1.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 16:00, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Maryville-airport.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Maryville-airport.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:02, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Percival Proctor Baxter and Garry[edit]

Heya, I just spotted that you'd uploaded https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percival_P._Baxter#mediaviewer/File:Baxter-garry.jpg as I was looking to upload the full image from a copy of his book at the start of the version at archive.org [1]. However as you uploaded the original version to Wikipedia, I thought you might want to put the full version up rather than have me jump in and replace your work. :) Miyagawa (talk) 12:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Permission to use photo[edit]

Hello,

My name is Jose Alvarez and I'm an archives researcher for a documentary series.

We are currently working on an episode about Paris Hilton and we mention that she attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart school in New York for a while. We came across your photo and would like to obtain permission to use it in your documentary.

Please let me know if I can send you a release form for this that would include any special requests in terms of who to credit.

I thank you in advance for your help and look forward to your news. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.37.118.50 (talk) 19:54, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Photo nominated for Quality Image[edit]

Marshall-mo-ch.jpg

I did a little touch-up work on your fine photo of the Saline County courthouse in Marshall, MO, and have nominated it for recognition as a Quality Image. Good luck.

I have a personal project to try and take or find good photos of all county courthouses in Missouri. Any others that you have are more than welcome. --Kbh3rdtalk 19:23, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Pony-trademark.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Pony-trademark.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.  — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:48, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Bonackers article[edit]

Did you author the wiki article Bonackers? I had info to share but found its talk page had been deleted in 2008 for reasons unknown. So recreated it and left my info there. Interestingly the history tab was also absent but reappeared after I saved the new talk page. Anyway, check it out if you're the guy, or if not maybe you can alert the right person. I've not had time to become a pro at this stuff. Cliffewiki (talk) 00:21, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Shinnecock Canal Locks Photo request[edit]

Hi. I was wondering if you would give me permission to use your photos of the Shinnecock Canal Locks on the Dan's Papers website, and possibly in print? I want to use it in a photoshop picture of a submarine getting stuck in there.

Please email me when you receive this at: oliver@danspapers.com

If not, we'll photograph it tonight, but your pics work and would save me some time.

Thanks.
