Orphaned non-free image File:Father Christmas Packing 1931 by JRR Tolkien.jpg
Thanks for uploading File:Father Christmas Packing 1931 by JRR Tolkien.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
Hi MichaelMaggs, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! -- Samtar talk · contribs 15:51, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
- PaleoNeonate, thanks. There's a lot more that needs to be done, but reliable sources in English are not easy to come by. If you know of any, particularly on the history/origins of the bowls or on their metallurgy, do please add them to the talk page and I'll see if I can check them out. Regards, MichaelMaggs (talk) 03:59, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
