I changed the tag on that image to {{PD-US}} which states it better. PD under US law, possibly others, but not all. —Morven 16:54, Dec 5, 2004 (UTC)

Re: Mauroy[edit]

I've added the place that I took Image:Mauroy.jpg from. The site allows its photographs to be freely reproduced.

Untagged images[edit]

Hello, could you add licence tag on pictures you uploaded to commons ? there are listed amond Commons:Commons:Untagged images. Cheers —FoeNyx 15:39, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the tardy reply, apparently I overlooked your request. I believe that ALL images I have uploaded to the commons are public domain, and I thought I had tagged them. I'm unable to quickly find any untagged images. If you could point them out, or tell me how to generate a list of my images that are missing tags, or something helpful like that, I will certainly make it my top priority. (Otherwise it may take me quite a while, I typically only get to use wikipedia in short sessions of 15 minutes or so these days.) Thanks!!! Pedant 01:46, 2005 Jun 26 (UTC)
OK, I'm done now, thanks very much for your help (listing the images was really helpful). I wasn't aware of the NASA public domain template until you pointed it out. Let me know if there's anything more I can do.Pedant 2005 June 28 07:12 (UTC)

Image:Lille, Belfry.JPG[edit]

Hello, I read your comment on Commons, but didn't understood explanation very well. If what you are saying is true. All images of building that are designed less than n years ago, should be deleted from Commons? Uploading it to the English Wikipedia, placed in the Florida, US on the other hand might be legal?? Donar Reiskoffer 20:11, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Images of french buildings, under french IP law, are protected « Œuvres de l'esprit » (something like copyrightable works) for the architect or its heirs; it's on the same level of protection than picture of Paintings whom exploitation/reproduction rights belong to the painter or its heirs more or less 70 years after death of the author. (sorry it's probably not very clear). For buildings there is a recent exception if it's within a wider view. Such problematic pictures have already been removed from commons I think. Louvre pyramid pictures are not free for example and even picture of Eiffel tower by night are protected because the lighting display is considerated as a copyrightable work. I dont know if it can be uploaded as gfdl (even in Florida), gfdl should apply in all countries who subscribed to IP international treaties. I know some images of french painting en: had to be relicenced to {{PD-US}} rather than {{PD}} as they were still protected in France. But again IANAL. --FoeNyx 20:32, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

ethnic French[edit]

How can you be in favour of the deletion of an article ? Would you not rather a significant clean-up take place ? Epf 19:15, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

because I dont think "Ethnic French" exists. --FoeNyx 19:17, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Kanji MOS discussion on FR[edit]

FoeNyx, I made a reply at the French kanji discussion here: fr:Wikipédia:Le_Bistro/13_septembre_2007#Mod.C3.A8le:Nom_japonais_invers.C3.A9

I am asking about how we will gauge consensus on which formats to use. WhisperToMe 02:34, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 19:46, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
