Are these free images ...[edit]

... that may be used in user space?

Hi IveGoneAway. Generally, any file you find on Commons either (1) is licensed as public domain or (2) is licensed under a free license accepted by Commons. Commons doesn't accept non-free content so anything you find there should be fine for the userspace. The only reason I say "should be fine" is because people are always uploading files to Commons when they probably shouldn't, and these files tend to be deleted when they are found. So, if you use a Commons' file in your userspace which is eventually deleted from Commons, the file will no longer be visible and most likely you'll see just a red link. If that happens, there's not much that can be done other than to go to Commons and find out why the file was deleted.
The two files you mentioned above are Commons' files, so they are not subject to WP:NFCC#9 or any of WP:NFCC and can be used in the userspace. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:59, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Userbox[edit]

Can we use multiple free images in Userbox id. Ashwini Gadade (talk) 11:23, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi {{u|Ashwini Gadade]]. Any image that you find on Commons can probably be used in a userbox. I believe that some userboxes can handle multiple images, but you should probably ask about that at WT:UBX, WT:UB or maybe even WT:VPT for more specific information about how to do that. -- Marchjuly (talk) 12:12, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
