Thanks for those improvements.--John Foxe 15:52, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for providing a Commons page for BJU. All the best,--John Foxe 16:54, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Keep up the good work[edit]

You're doing great work on Ed McCully; don't sweat the details about image policy and all that. I've been working on the Jim Elliot article of late, so once that's in better shape I'm going to move to the articles on Nate and Ed. It's great to see your interest, and thanks for the help! --Spangineerws (háblame) 23:29, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

When you say, "By Randy Alcorn", are you saying he took the picture? I don't think he was alive at the time. Just because the image appears on his website doesn't mean that 1) he isn't breaking copyright rules or 2) you're allowed to copy it. The reuse statement at the bottom applies specifically to articles written by Randy Alcorn, not all content that appears on his website. --Spangineerws (háblame) 00:56, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Yep, it's a real mess. I've been contributing to Wikipedia for over two years and am finally starting to feel comfortable with image copyright rules. You're always safe, however, if your image is really old (pre-1923, usually), or the author allows anyone to distribute, modify, and use his work (even for commercial purposes). Remember those two rules and you'll get it right 90% of the time. --Spangineerws (háblame) 06:10, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Jim Elliot[edit]

Thanks for uploading the image of the plaque of Jim Elliot! I've been trying to find a free image of him for awhile but haven't had any luck--I even contacted people like Lars Gren and Steve Saint to do it, but nothing came of it. So I'm wondering if there's any chance that you know of any other ways to get a picture of Jim... even a bigger version of that plaque with no glare would be awesome. I've been working on that article for awhile but never completed it; I'd love to see it become a featured article but that's hard to do unless we have an image. Anyway, thanks again for the picture of the plaque; that's great. --Spangineerws (háblame) 01:44, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately we can't assume that just because an image is on a website that it's public domain; in fact, that's extremely unlikely. Whenever we add a picture, we have to find the original source of an image (including the author and copyright information). Book covers don't work either, because they in general can only be used in the article about the book itself. So we're left with few options, especially when we can't get a picture from the people who have the rights (the families of Nate Saint and Jim Elliot, for the most part). --Spangineerws (háblame) 13:48, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:PA-14.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:PA-14.JPG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Jusjih 17:30, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Phoebus88.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Phoebus88.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 18:09, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

User:Captain Phoebus/Images[edit]

Hello. I've noticed that you keep your image uploads on the userpage User:Captain Phoebus/Images. Unfortunately, you cannot claim fair use for copyright images in userspace since images there clearly have no educational purpose. I'd appreciate it if you could remove them: the list of your image uploads is available through your contributions history. Note also that a few of these images are unused and unfree and will be eventually deleted. Cheers, Pascal.Tesson 05:47, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:James Dobson.JPG[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:James Dobson.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is disputed. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the image description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Pascal.Tesson 05:51, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

PA-14[edit]

That guy is really confused. He doesn't understand what "public domain" really means, but public domains means that anyone can use his images for any purpose (including commercial purposes). He probably wants a license that allows reuse except for commercial purposes (like the Creative Commons by-nc license).

Anyway, doesn't really matter. The bottom line is that he doesn't want people to use his images for commercial purposes, and Wikipedia requires that all images (except some that fall under fair use—which this doesn't) be permitted to be used for commercial purposes. So no, unless we can get him to clarify his muddled copyright thinking, we can't use the image.

The good news is that when Steve Saint recently came to my area, I got my mom's film camera and took some pictures of his plane (the one that was in the movie). I haven't seen the pictures yet, but I'm hoping that I'll have at least one that's the plane by itself. Hopefully within a few weeks I'll be able to start uploading those to commons (with the right licenses) so that we can use one here. --Spangineerws (háblame) 01:45, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Alex the Parrot.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Thanks for uploading File:Mincaye.JPG.

  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Orphaned non-free image File:Mission to the Headhunters.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Mission to the Headhunters.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. --B-bot (talk) 18:47, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
