EF 28-80mm lens photo[edit]

Hay Ken, you photo is fine, maybe a white background would have been better, but it's functional. Only problem is the copyright tag in the corner of the photo. You need to remove this, as it goes against Wikipedia guidelines. Firstly, having any text in photo is discouraged, unless its a diagram, chart, or the like. And since you published the photograph under GNU Free Documentation License/Creative Commons, the copyright tag is a contradiction. You need to make a choice, either publish it under GNU/CC license, or ask the photo to be deleted. Remember that GNU/CC goes beyond Wikipedia, this photograph can be used anywhere, as long as you are attributed. I have a have found a few of my photographs elsewhere on the net, that were originally published on Wikimedia Commons. Basically your donating your photograph to the world. Hope I don't sound too abrasive, just trying to make sure this photo does not get deleted(Technically a admin could). Thanks! Nebrot (talk) 10:50, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

yes, the pics stinks, and it's still sittin' on the coffee table where I took the quickie pic. As I said, I have no heartburn if someone replaces it with a better one but it is better than no.
I'll let wiki do whatever, basically, the image is free to use as is, and the text is part of it. That's how you guaratee attribution (which is part of the license). I have numerous images with the the same info and have never had an issue. But yes, i've numerous pics picked off the web, and several were edited to remove the copyright! Alas, no significant value, some folks removed them, one asked for a replacement with logo and my permission (which i gave).Ken (talk) 04:04, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. 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.
