I was curious if those photo was by you. If this is your photo, could you possibly reupload it without the watermark attached? Watermarks are frowned upon on Wikipedia. Also, the use of the (C) symbol implies that the picture is not licensed in the same way that you uploaded it to Wikipedia under.

If the photo is not yours, then it will have to be removed because you do not have permission to use it here. The359 (talk) 09:18, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Since it is your picture, any chance you'd consider re-uploading it without the watermark? —Mrand TalkC 18:53, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Not until I understand how all this works. Stardust39 (talk) 18:39, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Image use policy describes Wikipedia's policies regarding images. Specifically, under User-created images, it states that images should not be watermarked or have credits on the photo themselves. Copyright information will be listed on the image description page. However, be aware that licensing a photo to Wikipedia allows it to be used by anyone else, so long as they credit you as the author. The359 (talk) 19:09, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Citing sources[edit]

I noticed your edits at the Chevrolet Corvette article; I'm sorry the citation gave you a hard time. You were really close; you just needed to "wrap" the citation in XML-style ref tags, like this:

<ref>{{cite book
  | last = Leffingwell
  | first = Randy
  | authorlink = 
  | title = Corvette Fifty Years
  | publisher = MBI Publishing Company
  | location = Saint Paul MN USA
  | date = 2002
  | page = 203
  | doi = 
  | isbn = 0-7603-1180-3}}</ref>

so they can "magically" show up in the bottom of the page at "References". I added that citation back for you, but try to remember the ref tag for other citations you add. Good luck—that article needs a lot of citations! --an odd name 18:33, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the help. Stardust39 (talk) 01:12, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

California dreamin'[edit]

Just caught your edit on The California Kid. Can you source the rear bumper mods? If so, you might have enough to start the page. Or you might be able to add here or here. And if you're interested in customs at all, Hirohata Merc would like you to see it. ;p TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 08:18, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
