Madeleine L'Engle[edit]

I had to revert some vandalism to Madeleine L'Engle (some people have no respect, grrr...) so your recent changes to that article were lost; you may want to re-do them as I think they were good ones (about chronos and kairos series, I think). Questions please ask on my talk page :) --Bookgrrl holler/lookee here 23:39, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Oops, never mind...accidentally reverted one edit too far, I have fixed it so your edits are safe :) --Bookgrrl holler/lookee here 23:42, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Also, while I'm at it, welcome...

Actually it looks like you did it just fine :) Your name was red because you don't have any information on your user page yet, that's all. (Mine also shows links to my Talk page and Contributions list because I edited my signature to add those links -- yours won't show those, just your name.)

Another way to add your signature is to click on the "signature" button above the editing window (it's the 10th button from the left, the one that looks like this. Happy editing and if you have any other questions feel free to ask!! --Bookgrrl holler/lookee here 16:53, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Émile-René Ménard[edit]

Hi. I came across Émile-René Ménard as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Wikify and have modified the formatting. Beyond ordering some poutine, my French is rather poor so I was unable to determine how the references from the French article would apply to the translation you provided. I've marked the article as unreferenced, but the French article provides two references. Could you review the English article and add the references? If you don't know how to add the references, I can help with reference tagging syntax. And thanks for doing the translation to add a new article! Regards. -- Whpq 20:32, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! I got your information about the reference, and I've added it to the article. -- Whpq 21:31, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Commons images[edit]

Hi, you asked about uploading images, specifically for Pontormo, to Commons. You are correct in that the laws are murky. Not only does Wikipedia and Wiki Commons need to be attentive to U.S. law (where they are based), but also to international law. At the moment, image permissions is a very hot topic and even the best experts in the field could not give you a direct answer. Therefore, everything is in a grey area as far as legality. The commonly cited president is Bridgeman v. Corel, which suggests that as long as the image is a faithful representation of an otherwise public domain artwork is allowable (most anything from the 20th century and sculpture or other three dimensional sources probably (?) does not apply). It would seem that this ruling overrides the copyright of the photographer who initially photographed the work since there is no claim of originality. This issue, however, is not clear-cut (and is not international, either). Therefore, I tend to be rather conservative and only upload images of old paintings that I have taken myself with my own camera—always old master works. There is still an issue of whether something has been "published" originally, and exactly when, and that gets really messy as far determining public domain status. I know that a lot of images have been taken directly from the web gallery of art online under the idea: "Accurate photographs of two-dimensional visual artworks lack expressive content and are automatically in the public domain once the painting's copyright has expired (which it has in the US if it was published before 1923). All other copyright notices can safely be ignored." Good luck working on the images. We're spoiled today with access to images in a way that no previous generation could have ever imagined. --Stomme (talk) 08:05, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for commenting on my page. Yes, the galleries do look pretty nice now. Cheers.--Pericles of AthensTalk 21:11, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
