I will attribute the image to you with all the following information that accompanied your image on wikipedia: I will attribute both on the page in my book and in the references page at the end of the book. I have not yet published the book and at this time I do not have any copyright protection so I would prefer to not disclose the title of the book or the contents of the book until I get a copyright with the copyright office. I can say that it is of an educational nature and would be suitable for all readers of any age. There is no profanity or nudity or vulgarity or any off color remarks. The book would receive a G rating if it were a movie. It does contain new information that I do not want to disclose until I have the copyright in my hand. I will inform you of the Title and content as soon as I receive the copyright.m I do realize that the your image will not receive any copyright by me and that any and everyone will have use of your image as long as they inform you and as long as the attribute this image to you as per the GNU Free Documentation License.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Ram-Man. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
