Hello and my apologies for bugging you. Someone has copied Image:AmyLansky.jpg to Wikimedia Commons and I'm trying to tidy up. The way it's ended up on commons (Image:Amy Lansky.jpg) it looks like you took the photo, but you've added that it was Jennifer Dungan. I'm trying to figure out why it's a {{PD-self}} image. I had a look on Dr Lansky's website, but I didn't see anything about copyrights. Can you help me out here? How do we know the picture is PD. Thanks in advance, Angus McLellan (Talk) 20:39, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Jennifer Dungan is a friend who took that picture of Amy. She released it, but has no Wikipedia account, so I did the posting. I probably didn't do it quite right, so I apologize. If there is some way for her to do the release, I will have it done. Strubin (talk) 20:05, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Nothing to apologise for, it's all a bit of a nightmare! I think all it needs is an email, but I'll get the real story from those who know and come back to you. All the best, Angus McLellan (Talk) 18:03, 26 May 2008 (UTC)


Hi there! I didn't remove the portals (in Electric (software)) but moved them a bit lower. I initially thought those were external links and thus moved them there but actually that's not right since they point to wikipedia itself, feel free to relocate them. About the image you suggest, it certainly shows more but is it freely licensed? If no, it cannot be uploaded to wikimedia commons. I like the picture I used better in that it doesn't show a proprietary operating system window decoration. Either way is good. A shot is better than no shot. :) ps. Just read your user page and you look like a fellow who could get a kick out of free software, may I suggest you take a look? Palosirkka (talk) 08:34, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
