GRAND Canal[edit]

Mkierans;

Just as a heads-up, the images you've uploaded to the GRAND Canal page have no description or licensing, and will probably be deleted soon by an administrator. You should indicate who owns the copyright to these images (Mr. Kierans? GrandCo.?), and how it was released onto Wikipedia (e.g., released to the public domain, released under GNU, etc.).

Mkierans;

Within the images provided, a number of 'weasel' words (as Wikipedia would describe them) are used. Perhaps they could be altered to comply with Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View (NPOV) policy. When you say the Great Lakes are "unstable," I would say that they experience natural fluctuations. When you say Hudson Bay has "too much freshwater," I would say that the situation creates a unique biotome. Short shipping season in Hudson Bay? A natural result of its northerly latitude. Water-deficient midwest? That may have something to do with the water usage (and abuse), really, who needs to have a lush green lawn or golf course in the middle of desert / semi-desert?

So, as much as we would all like to use Wikipedia as a sounding-board for our opinions, this is not the place. Neutrality is key. FUNgus guy (talk) 16:56, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Bourassasignature2.png[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Bourassasignature2.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 13:46, 4 July 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 13:46, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:North American Fresh Water Run-Off2.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:North American Fresh Water Run-Off2.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. –Drilnoth (T/C) 21:43, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
