Hi Werieth,

You removed the logo from Wikipedia:WikiProject Gaelic games/club - but if you check the permissions given, you'll see that use of that logo is specifically allowed for the Project page as well as for the article on the club itself. No harm done, I've reinstated it. Please contact me if you need more info. Brocach (talk) 19:49, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

It does not matter if permission was given unless that file is released under a free license it cannot be used outside of the article, see WP:NFCC#9. Werieth (talk) 19:58, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
PS see email from Jimmy stating that wikipedia only permission files will be deleted. [1] Werieth (talk) 20:06, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

WTF are you doing????

The images used have been shared for Wikipedia to use. A WV County logo, is free use (as it pertains to the specific Copyright of non free use) in short, I dont have a publication I am using it in, look at the policy concerning the specific image. You have deleted thousands of images, WHAT are you doing ?????????? I researched every image on MY user page. I cant tell you how HELPFUL it is to be given NO heads up, NO warning, just a kiss off and removal. Thats NOT cool. In fact, its rude as hell. There are efficient and intelligent ways to inform people of such actionsCoal town guy (talk) 21:04, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Please review WP:CIVIL, as for the removal of File:Seal of Raleigh County, West Virginia.png in your userbox, it is a blatant violation of our non-free content policy which limits the usage of non-free media to article only. It was not shared for wikipedia to use, we are using it under the terms of fair use. Just because an image is on wikipedia does not mean it can be used on your user page. Only free media can be. As for notifying you it is not required, and doubles the amount of work necessary for someone cleaning up the violations there where over 700 such violations when I started.

You removed File:Homer_Simpson_2006.png from my WP:Teahouse/Hosts profile. I was quite upset, and about to ream you a new one... However, after following the link to the sections pertaining it, I would instead like to request that {{Non-free promotional}} and other similar templates that are used on files that fall under this restriction have a note added to them "This image is only allowed to be used in the main namespace on articles. FMI: WP:NFCC#9." Something as simple as that would have prevented me from using the file, or properly requesting use of it up front. It is very agitating to invest time and effort into something and have it reverted or deleted outright.
