Sue and Murray are very generous; pass along my thanks, please. Koyaanis Qatsi

A Photograph Source[edit]

Moved from Wikipedia:Village pump.

I have attempted to recruit contributors or photographers several times before, but have all failed until now. I just met a Mississippian photographer on a digital graphics DelphiForum, and convinced him to let Wikipedia to use, and modify if necessary, his photos on plants. For an example, see his Naked Lily (Lycoris radiata, L. squamigera).

Where do I announce this exciting (well, for me, anyway) information, so other contributors interested in gardening and botany can use them freely too? --Menchi 07:37 1 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Excellent news! Wikipedia:Announcements would be a good place, and you may want to create a page like Wikipedia:Merman flower collection to describe the copyright status of the pictures, so that it can be easily linked to from the image pages. I checked out the first page of the thread, and while he endorses sharing, I don't really see a comment referring specifically to the use on Wikipedia, or distribution under a specific license. So please do your best to describe when and where he made that declaration. --Eloquence 09:10 1 Jun 2003 (UTC)
I'll make a page with his exact statements relevant to uses on Wikipedia. But another members on that forum has just gave us permission to use her photos as well, and I have not gotten the details on her conditions yet. After receiving them, I'll make a page. --Menchi 10:12 1 Jun 2003 (UTC)
Done. Wikipedia:Plant photo collection I. I'll add it to Wikipedia:Announcements now. --Menchi 15:37 1 Jun 2003 (UTC)
There's a collection of GFDL image resources somewhere - it's linked from wikipedia:image use policy, I believe. Martin

Huzzah! That's wonderful! These are very nice photographs; thank you to the photographers for sharing and thank you to Menchi for getting permission! DanKeshet 16:59 13 Jun 2003 (UTC)

This article says " For ease of naviagtion of the currently usable photos, the hostess of TTP, User 1DRAGONES (Lady Dragoness), has made an index (No logging-in required.)" However, clicking any of those links takes me to a log-in page. Anyone know what's up with this or have contact with the creator of the indexes? Elf | Talk 21:04, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)


What copyright tag applies to these photographs? Are they all GFDL? dbenbenn | talk 05:44, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)
