Please attribute or claim media you uploaded or restored: File:Polyhedron kaleidoscope triangles3.png[edit]

You uploaded or restored , File:Polyhedron kaleidoscope triangles3.png, but for various reasons did not add an {{information}} block, or indicate your (user) name on the file description page. Media uploaded to Wikipedia needs information on the SPECIFIC authorship and source of files, to ensure that it complies with copyright laws in various jurisdictions.

If it's entirely your own work, please include {{own}} in the relevant source field, amend the {{information}} added by a third party, ensuring that your user name (or name you want used for attribution) is clear in the author field, and change the license to an appropriate "self" variant (if such a license is not already used). You should also add an |author= parameter to the license tag, to assist reviews and image patrollers. You can also add |claimed=yes and an |author=to the {{media by uploader}} or {{presumed_self}} tag if it is present to indicate that you've acknowledged the image, and license shown (and updated the {{information}} where appropriate).

If it's not entirely your own work, then please update the source and authorship fields, so that they accurately reflect the source and authors of the original work(s), as well as the derivative you created. You should also not use a "self" license unless the work is entirely you own. Media that is incorrectly claimed as self or {{own}}, will eventually be listed at Files for Discussion or deleted, unless it's full status is entirely clear to other contributors, reviewers and image patrollers.

Whilst this notification, relates to a single media upload, it would also be appreciated if you could ensure that appropriate attribution exists for other media you uploaded, You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

It's okay to remove or strike this message once the issue has been resolved :).

John Iadarola[edit]

Per the discussion Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/John Iadarola (2nd nomination) as Iadarola's career has grown, I have added additional sources covering his primary hosting of "True North" and "The Damage Report" series with additional non TYT sources. This is in addition to his daily hosting duties on the TYT main show. I have reactivated the article to mainspace. Trackinfo (talk) 07:53, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

File usage permission[edit]


I would like to use the file for M.C. Escher's "Circle Limit III" in my thesis, and I am wondering if I am allowed to do so. My thesis deals with hyperbolic geometry, and I find that this particular image illustrates beautifully the metric in the Poincaré disk model, but I would hate to infringe any copyright regulations in place.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi Iordan! The image is copyrighted, and Wikipedia just has a small 400 pixel image, See at: File:Escher_Circle_Limit_III.jpg under "fair use". I don't know the licensing details beyond this. Tom Ruen (talk) 13:24, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello Tom, and thank you for your answer! I will come in contact with the copyright holder to get more details. Have a great day! imiordanov (talk) 16:17, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
