=:Wyrdlight, I just wanted to say thanks for uploading the image to Wikipedia. In my opinion, it's a fantastic aid to the article on Bodiam Castle and is unmatched by the other available pictures. Nev1 (talk) 16:31, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

S.E.5a pictues (in S.E.5a and Biplane articles)[edit]

These are both very nice clear shots, unfortunately the one you put in the S.E.5 article itself, being obviously (from the "out-of-scale" pilot's head and some other details) one of those "scale" replicas they sell in kit form rather than a "true" reproduction, just won't do in this article, which is really specifically about the original aircraft. On the other hand the other view, in a much more general article, and clearly labelled for what it is is, is just perfect. In brief, I have deleted the first image and re-captioned the second. Hope you undertand. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 22:03, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Brookwood American Cemetery and Memorial[edit]

Hi Antony: Thanks for working on the Brookwood American Cemetery and Memorial article. Your photos are really powerful. And I like your interactive site too. Can we have more photos of the graves? There could be more of the graves, less of the visitors center. It's such a beautiful cemetery, I think viewers could see all four sections. Check out my images on my other favorite CWGC site, Bayeux War Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery in Normandy. Semper Fidelis from New York. -- K72ndst (talk) 05:29, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Bodiam Castle Photo Relicense?[edit]

Hello there!

I absolutely love the Bodiam Castle photo, and would love to use it in a project that I am working on presently - http://www.latech.co.uk/rpg - but I'm working under the CC BY-NC-SA, rather than CC BY-SA. As the copyright holder, would you be willing to to allow me to use your photo in my project under CC BY-NC-SA?

You can send a reply to richard at latech .co.uk if you want to reach me on email, as I don't have a wikipedia account.

Many thanks!

Update[edit]

Hello again!

Just to keep you updated with the status of this image, a variant is now living as a button on the front page of the website.

Have added updated information linking back to my website as I am the originator and copyright holder of this work

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Spiritofdubai.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Spiritofdubai.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Bulwersator (talk) 16:09, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Wyrdlight, I've taken this deletion up with User:Rhaworth. Your Exif metadata clearly shows your copyright (and clearly it was not a scan but taken with a camera plus telephoto) and thus it should have been flagged as a possible F11. Which would have given you seven days to contest. In stead it was deleted in just ¾ of an hour and I only glance at hourly intervals and so couldn't catch it in time. --Aspro (talk) 18:55, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

info box templates[edit]

Due to historical reasons the Wikimedia info box templates and the Wikipedia info box templates are not always interchangeable. So I have picked the nearest templates that I know to updated File:Spiritofdubai.jpg to show you what it looks like. If you think its OK then I suggest you cut&past the code below into any of your previous uploads where it might not be crystal clear that you're one of the same entity. You'll find them all here: Special:Contributions/Wyrdlight. If when you have done that, let me know and I'll see if I can persuade the Bot (robot) to transfer over to WC those images that have been flagged for moving over to WC. Otherwise, they too might get a speedy delete. Anything that still leaves you scratching your head – just let me know. Note: in the Author section I have added /WyrdLight.com after your name (without a space between the two) which I think is the correct way to show a hard and shared copyright link.

Your last update[edit]

Hi Wyrdlight,
I've seen you last updates and wonder if this is what you are attempting to achieve:

Instead off : “An image collection is at the commons at: Category:Images by User:Wyrdlight Wyrdlight might I suggest:

My main  list of images are on Wikimedia Commons at 
[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Images_by_User:Wyrdlight Category:Images by User:Wyrdlight].

The first line will provide a clickable link straight to your Wikimedia Commons gallery.
The last line above will then appear at the bottom of your user page and magically make Wyrdlight appear in the category list of 'Wikipedian photographers'. Notice, that I have replaced {{PAGENAME}} with YOU'RE page name.

I thought that you might like to learn more about our baffling wiki-code. Yet, if you prefer, I could do it for you and change it back if its not what you intended. --Aspro (talk) 20:39, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Note: For the time being I have removed the delete tag. Due to our Wiki-Ways other editors obviously have trouble recognizing this contributors uploads as belonging to him. Yet, as he is a small/medium businessman, all his images are part of his bussiness. Perhaps, the common sense way out of this is for this contributor to upload them as Author : WyrdLight as well as the source being Wyrdlight. The problem with that though, is that Wyrdlight's office desk, filing cabinets etc. don't take any photographs - the sole photographer (author) and owner does. So, the author attribution is right. So, I have cobbled together a template below that may help. Then there is no chance of confusion (say's me hopefully). --Aspro (talk) 19:10, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Feedback: This image now conforms to WP copyright/attribution requirements. Image File:Tonka.jpg stays. --Aspro (talk) 19:37, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Your frequent challengers to your copyright[edit]

Hi WyrdLight, I have more, than noticed, that your images get challenged more than most, even though the copyright status is clear (to me). Mind you you, you did start of ass-about-face which could account for most of the confusion. WP being voluntary, has editors just skimming through hundreds of images and tagging any that seem suspect without further examination. So, I have wondered is this customized template below will dot all the i's and cross all the t's and avoid (saying me hopefully) any further aggro:


Description

English: type description here after the equals sign

Source

http://www.wyrdlight.com

Date
Author

Antony McCallum: Who is the uploader, photographer, full copyright owner and proprietor of WyrdLight.com

Permission
(Reusing this file)

Attribution must say: WyrdLight.com

For additional licence verification. See http://wyrdlight.com/clients.htm for Wiki user page link.


So that you can see the Wiki-code and find it easily, I have created your very own User:Wyrdlight/sandbox to mess around in.

P.S. By the way, the image of the truck above has no creation date. It is usually taken to be when the image was first captured before any post manipulations. Andy Warhol may disagree but... who am I to argue.

P.P.S. With the benefit of hindsight it may have been easier if you had chosen to create a Wkipedia account using your real name. Thus, avoiding the constant copyright challenges to your own images. However, I can see where your coming from and won't comment on that directly but in a tangental fashion. If (say) you get hit by the proverbial bus tomorrow, then no doubt your descendants will inherit your portfolio... and any royalties deriving from your works. However, the taxman and others would view Wyrdlight as a separate legal entity from yourself ( your accountant can explain it more simply -I'm sure). That may cost your descendants legal fees if they they wanted to know how add new images to your portfolio post mortem in order to create (say) a photo-library including the work of others. You (like I) may have no intention of shredding our mortal coils anytime soon but it is a thing to consider. If you eventually choose to change your user name to your own personal name, then please go to Wikipedia:Changing username.

P.P.P.P.S. I have also moved Cat Wikipedia Photographers from you talk page to your Main User page (where it should be).

PPPPPS. Finally, Oh finally. If you're not camera shy, then please give other editors a chance to know you be before they tag to delete. If you could just place a passport image of your mug on your User Page and you real name, occupation and a few etceteras. Then other editors, new to your work will have a entity they can more relate to, and not immediately assume your a nubie and knows nothing about copyright. This is not, in anyway, obligatory, it is just that in your case it might make your life easier if your happy to have your real identity known. That is why I am not going to criticise Stefan2 for tagging the above image. He does sterling work on ridding the crap on WP. Likewise, I would like to make you experience on WP as enjoyable as possible. So whenever you have any questions -fire away (but please...., nothing about Box Brownies as I can't get the 120 film any more). --Aspro (talk) 15:56, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Note: Although I have removed the deletion tag from File:Tonka.jpg for now. Stefan2 is right that its attribution is not crystla clear to anyone reading the file page who cant be bothered to do a little clicking on links. Although, I have no doubt that you are indeed the rightful copyright owner (EXIF is proof enought) I can not correct the page on my behalf for you. It is up to you to make this clear. Maybe Stefan2 will agree to the template that I suggest you use. But the confirmation (as you can understand because you require contracts to be sign by your clients etc) has to come from you. You have contributed some really good images. --Aspro (talk) 17:39, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Wow - Aspro: many, many thanks for the guidance and help. I'll use the template suggested and sand box as well as look the Tonka file over. I'll update my user page too. I'm not accomplished with Wiki systems, but I will see what I can do with my user page too. Can't thank you enough.

Tonka[edit]

Editor User:Tbhotch noticed that Wikimedia Commons also has a image File:Tonka.jpg so he has renamed your image to File:Real Tonka truck.jpg. Your original image is still here on WP but under this different name -which I think is a good call on his part. Mind you, I have trouble choosing which of the two images shows the most appealing and mouthwatering bodywork. The truck to my mind is winning by a small margin. Sorry Tonka Tomicic. Your looks and curves don't quite have the pulling power of a big, big yellow traction unit. ;-). As an aside: The sign writing of Tonka doesn't look too fresh and solid (i.e. Unlikely Photoshopped) . Yet, it seem like a lot of work for a employee to do to his truck. So, is it genuine (don't answer this if you don't want too – I love adding roof top TV aerials and wristwatches etc. into 17th Century painting – but I do point that out). This type of vehicle registration number is used in many parts of the US so that doesn't give me a clue. The background is too out of focus to give a clue as to why it was there and what is was being used for. At the moment it is an orphaned image, in so much that it is not used on any article. If your can provided little more background, another editor may find someway to use it in an article. Hopefully, this image will be transferd to WC, as it is the only image of this model of truck I have seen. For these type of images that are not uploaded with a definite article in mind, it is probably better to upload to WC in the first instance. Also, it assists other editors, if lots info about the image is placed in the Discriptions. Facts that may not seem of interest to you at the time can be very useful to others at a later date. Hope this helps.--Aspro (talk) 12:38, 15 March 2016 (UTC) Thanks Aspro (talk). I've updated the file to the best of my recollection and I'll upload everything to Commons. Thanks again.

Post box at Brookwood Station[edit]

  • I see you have reverted my image of this item with the summary that the image is freely available. I note that the image was taken by you. Your page states "Consequently I own copyright in all the images I upload and there's a link at http://wyrdlight.com/clients.htm back to Wiki to help confirm my copyright ownership." Can you clear this up, please? Is the image freely available or do you own the copyright to it? Thanks. Jack1956 (talk) 20:04, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Jack1956 - have answered on your talk page,

@ Wyrdlight. Please sign your posts, so that we know who is commenting and not have to guess from the context.
If you are using the edit toolbar option (it usually appears above the edit screen as a default 3rd icon from the left), click the signature icon or to automaticaly add two hyphens and four tildes like this: --~~~~.

The four tildes will be automatically replaced with your signature after you have saved the changes, as follows:

Wikimarkup Resulting code Resulting display

Since typing four tildes adds the time and date to your resulting signature, this is the preferred option for signing your posts in discussions. Thanks Aspro (talk) 13:22, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Aspro - wrongly assumed this was done automatically once signed in!! Will try to remember.

Ho Ho. Then why not add --~~~~ to your last post above now. Try it ! See how it works. Its like practicing opening up a couple of stops when taking a snow scene, rather than trying to correct it after in Floatoslop ;¬)--Aspro (talk) 21:43, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
