Uploading Flickr photos[edit]

Hi. It was nice to meet you the other evening. :-)

commons:Commons:FLICKR#Tools should help you in getting Flickr photos uploaded locally or to Wikimedia Commons. commons:Special:UploadWizard sounds like your easiest option. Let me know if you need any help. --MZMcBride (talk) 00:45, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Re: The Empty Closet[edit]

Thank you for creating this article. I added it to Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride 2015/Results, which records LGBT-related articles created during the month of June as part of the annual Wiki Loves Pride campaign. If you happen to create or improve other LGBT-related articles this month, feel free to update the Results page accordingly. Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:44, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

George Robey[edit]

Hello! Please don't just insert images into articles in the middle of a section that is already heavily illustrated. Instead, please use the article's Talk page to let everyone know that you have an image that might be of interest and to discuss where it might fit in. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 23:22, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Now that I've looked over your upload, I see many problems with it! First of all, you licensed it incorrectly. You claimed it as your own work and then licensed it under a CC license, but it is actually a public domain work in the US. Your claim of copyright to it is wrongful and you could potentially be liable for a violation of copyright law. Secondly, in your summary, you misidentified the author -- it is Scotson-Clark. You misidentified the source, you mis-dated it. I've corrected some of the mistakes, but you should, for your own protection, go back over all of your uploads and make sure that you are not claiming work as your own that, in fact, was created or originally published by someone else. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 23:57, 6 August 2015 (UTC)
I've also tried fixing some of these, but I don't know the age or country of origin of these two, just that they're not own work:
Even though the photos are taken by you, the object you're photographing is the work of someone else when the image is a book cover, program or film poster, for example. When you need help, posting here before uploading is a good idea. When images aren't licensed correctly, they can be deleted, so you want to be sure of the right licenses. We hope (talk) 00:58, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Please don't take offense at the tag I had to place on the item from the 1904 World's Fair re: "nazi symbol". Anything resembling the mark has to be noted because anything to do with the Nazi Party is illegal in Germany and also in some other countries. In the days of the 1904 World's Fair, this was considered to be a symbol of good luck. We hope (talk) 01:22, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Dear Fellow Wikipedians,

Please see the idea at Please post your suggestions on the talk page and please feel free to edit the idea and join the project.

Thank you for your time and attention in this matter. I appreciate it.

It will allow all those keen to improve Wikipedia's coverage of women in science to participate. As the virtual edit-a-thon stretches over three weeks, new participants will be able to draw on the assistance of more experienced editors while creating, translating or improving articles on women who are (or have been) prominent in the field. All levels of Wikipedia editing experience are welcome.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
