Yellow Corn Image[edit]

We are considering using part of this image for a sell sheet. We would show about half of one ear of the corn in your photo. The print run would be small 100-300 copies. Could you contact me to discuss?

Thank you for your time.


Yes, will contact. Jonathunder (talk) 15:03, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

New question raised regarding Talk:Hillary Rodham Clinton/April 2015 move request[edit]

Some opposers of this move have now contended that there is a "Critical fault in proposal evidence", which brings the opinions expressed into question. Please indicate if this assertion in any way affects your position with respect to the proposed move. Cheers! bd2412 T 04:38, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

When to use pictures of people[edit]

Are there any guidelines/standards on when to use pictures of people in entries about that person? I have pictures of several bishops I have taken myself, so I have rights to them, but I don't see lots of pictures of people and I am wondering what the guidelines are. Johnma4567 (talk) 15:19, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

There are legal standards, which are very broad, Wikimedia standards, which are somewhat more narrow, and ordinary politeness. In my view, the latter is simply considering how the subject of the photograph would feel to have it published. If you do that, you are unlikely to run into trouble.

3RR warning[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Dennis Hastert. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. - Cwobeel (talk) 23:55, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Edit warring through full protection[edit]

My protection is an admin action from an ANI complaint. There will be no edit-warring advantage for admins. Blocked 72 hours and I will mention this in the ANI thread.
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 01:31, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

That was a very hasty block. I was caught in an edit conflict and didn't see a warning that the page was fully protected. And you block me for 72 hours without even a warning? Jonathunder (talk) 01:47, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm open to unblocking provided that you don't intend to edit through the protection.
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 01:51, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I've already removed the block. Getting caught in an edit conflict is not a blockable offense. bd2412 T 01:52, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Look, I didn't even know the page was protected. No, I'm not going to edit it now that it is, but I would like to participate on the talk page, as I did right before your quickdraw block. Jonathunder (talk) 01:53, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't mind that. BD2412 should have waited as we were about to have this worked out. Thanks for checking with the blocking admin there BD.
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 01:56, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Maybe BD should of waited (and even not be involved per В²C below), but who should have really waited was you. No reason why this couldn't have reverted and brought up with Jona before implementing a block, and I'm surprised that there doesn't seem to be an ounce of regret. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 14:50, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Things happen. I hold no grudges. I very much regret the last block I made and now that I am for the first time on the receiving end of a block, I will doubly learn my lesson not to block in haste. Administrators are not perfect, but we can learn and get better. Jonathunder (talk) 15:11, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Well said, well said...oddly I view blocks sensitively due to the community's overall stigma against having an imperfect block log, but ultimately it's not a big deal either. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 15:13, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I apologize Jona for reading the circumstances incorrectly and blocking as well as for not apologizing before now. I should have done so last night. Please forgive me.
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 15:31, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
It's not easy to apologize. Thank you. Jonathunder (talk) 15:43, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
For the record, BD2412 is and has been heavily involved in the HC/HRC dispute[1] and, IMHO, should abstain from administrative matters in this area. --В²C 02:08, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Permission to use Mayowood image[edit]

We would like to use your photograph of the Mayowood residence in a temporary educational exhibit that presents the agricultural efforts of Dr. Mayo and his brother-in-law, Dr. Christopher Graham, in the context of the American Country Life movement of the early twentieth century.

If you allow us to use the image, may we convert it to black and white? And how would you like us to credit you?

Thank you for your consideration. (talk) 22:45, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
