File:A view of the downtown Anchorage skyline..jpg[edit]

Cleaning up recent messes while I have a chance. It says that you recently deleted this file here after it was moved to Commons. I was curious whether or not you were aware of old discussions at Talk:Anchorage, Alaska/Archive 1, where the question was raised as to whether or not the uploader was contributing original material or scavenging stuff from the web in violation of copyright. I would assume that this weighed heavy on why the file was never moved to Commons for all those years. Regardless of its status, I have a much better photo of the same view in my upload queue, just waiting to have the time necessary to touch up a few of the photos and upload them.

@RadioKAOS: no, I was not aware of that discussion. People wait to move old files all the time, so nothing was out of the ordinary. If you believe it is a copyright violation, I recommend nominating for deletion on Commons. Magog the Ogre (t c) 03:27, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
It's probably safe to say that most or all those folks moved on a long time ago, so I'm not sure it's really my battle to fight. FFD is full of discussions of photos uploaded by long-departed contributors who aren't around anymore to defend their contrubtions. Like I said, I'll deal with it by uploading a far superior photo I took myself. Thanks anyway. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 03:32, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
