Hello, Arbitrarily0! I recently edited a page on Tiger Muskellunge (a species of fish) because the image in the taxonomy section was of the wrong variety of muskie. The image I replaced it with is found in the same exact book on the same exact page (Fish of Michigan Field Guide by Dave Bosanko, page 88). Even though both images are from the same source, I am not completely sure if I correctly followed copyright procedure. I'd like your opinion on this, but I am fairly certain this maneuver was fine due to the fact that multiple images from this book are circulating the Commons. Thanks!
Hi Benito! This is a good question! Your reasoning is great, but there is something strange: if both of those images come from that book, probably this website does not own that image either. If the book publisher owns those images, sadly we probably cannot use either one. I gave a look around different tiger muskie drawings online - I do not see any which are freely available. Perhaps the best route is to replace this drawing with a real-world picture. What do you think? Feel free to consider any pictures you yourself have taken. In general, let me know if you need a hand uploading your own shots! Arbitrarily0(talk) 03:45, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback - I will remove the existing drawing and see if i can find a decent real tiger muskellunge for the box, as that is the best option readily available. And thanks for the help offer, but as long as I follow copyright rules, I think I'll be in the clear! Thanks again! Benito 21:58, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
When I go to Zakarid Armenia I reach the correct article, and if I click on its talk page tab I get to it correctly, but when I click back to the article I instead am redirected to Zakarids-Mkhargrzeli, which in turn has its own talk page. I do not know how to fix this. Can you fix it, since you might have been inadvertently responsible for creating it (you made a redirect back in 2011). Each article has different content and I think each needs to exist (one deals with the territory and its history, the other deals with the history and origin of the dynasty that ruled that territory).

My, that was quite confusing. Should be all set now, Arbitrarily0(talk) 19:58, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Scratch that, just realised that category is organised in a problematic way. I'll get back to you with a list :) --Newbiepedian (talk · contribs · X! · logs) 12:20, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Greetings my friend! Unfortunately I am no longer operating Arbitrarily0Bot - I need to remove that from my userpage. There still should be, however, some active bots at Category:WikiProject tagging bots. Good luck to you, Arbitrarily0(talk) 18:11, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
Request for splitting and merging a few page histories
