Could be a good idea to have a section with possible copyright violations. --Krm500 21:47, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Pictures from Calgary Flames games[edit]

This is a great addition to the project. I have season tickets to the Calgary Flames and occasionally take pictures at the games. To see some of the ones I have taken and put on Wikipedia, check out my Commons page. Just let me know if you want me to get a pic of someone that will be playing in Calgary. Obviously, it is much easier for me to get pictures of players from Western teams. -- JamesTeterenko 20:15, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Good job, nice pics. I'd like to have a good Joe Sakic photo, so, if you have the opportunity to take a photo of him, it'd be nice. Thanks--Serte Talk · Contrib ] 20:56, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
That'd be easy, since there are four games to choose from this season. The first one is on October 26, so I'll try to get one then. -- JamesTeterenko 22:30, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I took a number of pictures of Sakic and have uploaded the best two pictures. They are Image:SakicWarmup1.JPG & Image:SakicWarmup2.JPG. I also have pictures of a number of other players. I'll gradually upload them. -- JamesTeterenko 04:45, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

AWESOME photos, thanks a lot. Great if you have more of other Avs players. These photos are really great. I want to apologize for what the Avs have been doing with the Flames. I mean, coming back in two games the way they did, 4-0 and this one, with half the shots and getting the win 27 seconds into overtime. I'm sorry, man :P --Serte Talk · Contrib ] 10:42, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

This might be a long shot, but the Rangers are in Calgary on Jan 2, and I'm currently trying to get images of the following players: Gomez (19), Drury (23), Staal (18), Tyutin (51), and Straka (82). if you remember that'd be great, and if I get any of these before then I'll let you know. IrisKawling 13:17, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
It should be no problem to take my camera to the Rangers game. I can't promise getting good pics of all of those players. I seem to get at most about half a dozen good pictures (e.g. the Theodore pic) and another half dozen usable pics from a warmup (e.g. this pic of Stastny, which was cropped out of pic with Sakic). If I stay on the Rangers side for the entire warmup, I should get at least a usable image of most of those players. As for the Avalanche beating the Flames, I would much rather it be like those two losses than most any other loss. Bad luck, outplaying the opponent, and still getting an OT pity point. If they keep playing like that, the wins will keep coming. -- JamesTeterenko 20:36, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Okie dokie. I have uploaded my best pictures of the players you requested. I missed the first bit of the warmup. Drury and Straka were already off the ice, so I had to get game pictures of them. I did get an action shot that included three of your requested players: Gomez, Staal, & Straka. The best shots of the individuals requested are: Scott Gomez, Marc Staal, Fedor Tyutin, Martin Straka, & Chris Drury. I've already uploaded a couple others from the game, and I should have a few more coming soon. I figured I would respond to the requests first. -- JamesTeterenko (talk) 17:49, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Nice image of Theodore! Yesterday I took a day trip to Borås to "cover" (I had press credentials and everything!) the Borås HC vs. Leksands IF game. As probably everyone has heard, Ed Belfour signed with Leksand, a swedish tier-II team, this summer. Unfortunately The Eagle wasn't playing, he wasn't even on the bench so I didn't get a picture of him (for wikipedia, which I had hoped...). Though I did get some really good images of a couple of 2007 drafties, but I hope I can sell those images so I won't upload them here. Sorry. --Krm500 00:11, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
Any chance of taking some pics of Jarret Stoll of the Oilers and Nick Schultz of the Wild? I have been trying to improve their pages, and a photo of each would help. Leafschik1967 (talk) 16:29, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
I might actually have a picture of Schultz. I took my camera to last week's game against the Wild. I didn't really focus on taking pictures of any particular players, but I'll check to see what I got. Hopefully, I'll have some time on Sunday to do it. Either way, I should be able to get a picture of both of these players before the season is over. -- JamesTeterenko (talk) 22:32, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Had a few minutes tonight and found this. -- JamesTeterenko (talk) 01:22, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! Looks great! Leafschik1967 (talk) 19:20, 24 November 2007 (UTC)


Great photo here, unfortunately it's labeled as noncommercial, if somebody wants to contact the author asking him to make it available. IrisKawling 23:52, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

I did, check it out. But can somebody do the rest (upload it). --Hasek is the best 20:28, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
It won't pass a flickr-commons transfer because it's still set as noncommercial, it was also just deleted on here because of the same reason. Permission is great, but this tends to happen.. IrisKawling 20:55, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Arg, then will asking the author to use it anywhere help? --Hasek is the best 21:50, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
You just gotta ask him if he can change the setting to "Attribution Creative Commons" or "Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons" IrisKawling 21:58, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I asked him, now we just have to wait. --Hasek is the best 22:39, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Ask him if he could consider uploading a very small, cropped version of the image to commons and release the version to the public domain or similar free alternative. Wikipedia image policy suck. Goodnight. --Krm500 22:47, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
 Done, Commons:Image:Daniel Alfredsson.jpg IrisKawling 06:25, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
Woohoo, now just four more to go. --Hasek is the best 02:14, 12 September 2007 (UTC)


My apologies for asking this question if it is stupid; I am inexperienced with the image aspect of Wikipedia. Is it kosher to go onto flickr and take photos to place on Wikipedia? They are non-commercial, public photographs, are they not? Or, do I need to contact the image creators for permission before using them? I'd like to add photos to a lot of Buffalo Sabre articles, and I've found a few nice ones on flickr. Please advise. Skudrafan1 20:56, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Each photo on flickr has a different license. You will want to look for the creative commons license which will be underneath the image, any that are either Cc-by white.svg, or Cc-by white.svgCc-sa white.svg are OK to use on Wiki. You should upload them to Commons so they can be used on all wikis. Also it is probably more efficient to search amongst only commercially allowed images, like This IrisKawling 22:21, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the pointers! Skudrafan1 00:14, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Forsberg image[edit]

Okay, now that the Alfredsson one is down pat, how about the Peter Forsberg image. I found a nice one here. So I guess I'll need to ask him to switch the licensing. --Hasek is the best 02:20, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Good luck. I worked on the Foppa article a few weeks ago and it really needs an image and that one is good. Thanks.--Serte Talk · Contrib ] 09:52, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
I've actually contacted that author about several of his pictures a few weeks ago and got no response.. you can try again though. IrisKawling 09:54, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Sigh...I wish Flickr had messages of ones that pop up on the browser. I'll contact him, this better work. --Hasek is the best 02:22, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Got permission to use a different photo, Image:Peter Forsberg 2007.jpg IrisKawling 10:21, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Great, thanks a lot. And it's getting fun seeing my idea to create this page is working. Thanks guys.--Serte Talk · Contrib ] 11:04, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I just remembered. Don't you have to present proofs he let the image be used to an admin at Commons or something like that?--Serte Talk · Contrib ] 11:07, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

The image looks he's from a grunge band lol. But nonetheless woohoo! Oh yes, the guy from the wanted image responded and said: "Go for it, man" so how about that? --Hasek is the best 20:31, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

New images[edit]

How about either renaming this article (To simply "Images") and implement a "New images" section or create a separate article? We have the New articles page so why not one for images? I think it's a good idea since images of players can be used on more then just the players articles. We'll be getting some new images since two Flickr users who I've been talking to has been kind enough to license their hockey images with Creative Commons. --Krm500 (talk) 19:12, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

HHof Legends Classic[edit]

Hi, was I on a visit in Toronto and took some photos at the Legends Classic game. I am uploading them at commons, I hope I get them all in today. I am busy with taking them in the German wiki, I hope you will like them and som may find their way in the en wiki. Steve Shutt, Larry Robinson, Kirk Muller, Paul Coffey, Billy Smith, Tiger Williams and a lot more. Check it out. I also added some Players from WSH @ NJ last weekend. Enjoy it. Shold be more than 100 all together. Best wishes from far away --Horge de (talk) 15:14, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
