License tagging for Image:Slate Roof House.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Slate Roof House.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 01:10, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:RebeccaNurseHouse.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Hi Willjay!
We thank you for uploading Image:RebeccaNurseHouse.jpg, but there is a problem. Your image is currently missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. Unless you can help by adding a copyright tag, it may be deleted by an Administrator. If you know this information, then we urge you to add a copyright tag to the image description page. We apologize for this, but all images must confirm to policy on Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks so much for your cooperation.

NowCommons: File:Tuscon 19thCentury Adobe.jpg[edit]

File:Tuscon 19thCentury Adobe.jpg is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:Tuscon 19thCentury Adobe.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis.

Illinois Soldiers' and Sailors' Children's School[edit]

Hello there. I see you've created this article. Just so you know, you can reuse references in the article by giving it a name, and referencing that name. For example: Lorem ipsum.<ref name="example">[blah]</ref> Dolor<ref name="example"/>. Just so you know. Anyway, have fun editing! -happy5214 11:50, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop at CMU (Aug 15)[edit]

Since you are one of the editors in the Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: University of Pittsburgh, I'd like to invite you to the Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop that will take place at CMU on Aug 15 (this workshop is open to general public, and is a joint imitative of CMU and Pitt). There will be another workshop held at Pitt in the Fall as well. It will cover how to include Wikipedia in one's course (WP:SUP) and also how to become a Wikipedia:Campus Ambassadors. Pennsylvania has currently only one ambassador (myself) and it would be great if we could recruit at least several more. Ambassadors help course instructors, showing them how Wikipedia works, and interact with students. Many current ambassadors come from the body of students, faculty and university staff; it is a fun adventure, and adds to one resume/CV, to boot :) If it sounds interesting, feel free to ask me any questions, or to come to the workshop.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:59, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Image request for Life of Medgar Evers exhibits[edit]

Hi, Willjay!

I work for Formations Inc., an exhibit design firm in Portland, Oregon, and we'd like to use your photo of Medgar Evers' grave at Arlington ( in a series of exhibits on the life of Medgar Evers that we're designing for the Smith Robertson Museum in Jackson, Mississippi. I see that you've licensed the image with a Creative Commons license, and it looks like we're free to use it, but, before doing so, I just wanted to verify with you that the use would be acceptable. And, if so, would you please let me know how you'd like us to credit the image (i.e. to "Willjay" or in some other manner).

Thanks for your time!

All best,

Heresy of Orleans[edit]

I made a simple change based on current featured French article, but I think it should be enhanced in order to distinguish this heresy from the popular ones, which where made in other contexts. v_atekor (talk) 09:54, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
