I am a flickr reviewer, am en-N and es-2. For the forseeable future I will be less active on Wikimedia projects. E-mail at Special:Emailuser/Iamunknown is the best means of communication. Talk archive is thataway. --Iamunknown 06:45, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Note to self (and others): I need to do maintenance work on the images I uploaded! (Add categories, create a gallery, fix up the errors, etc.) --22:24, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
- I guess I am unsure if Shiraz has e-mail enabled ... but, ya, you would need a Flickr account. That will be good to have to be a flickr reviewer, because then you can leave thank you notes in the comments of the image pages at Flickr. :) If his e-mail is not there, you could try leaving a comment. Hope this helps. --Iamunknown 03:13, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
Hmmmh, no, I hadn't (I don't always put the images I review on my watchlist, only the ones that interest me). I suppose we could try a deletion request and see where that goes.

- Thanks for filing the request. We'll see how it goes. Arria Belli | parlami 13:32, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
Squishycows on Flickr
There is a post on the Tucows company blog that I think explains the situation:
- "Squishycow photos continue to pile up on Flickr. This week we’re featuring the work of Kayla Fleming who posted a couple of really nice shots of our friend around the offices at the hosting company where she works. I’ll admit to being somewhat jealous - Orlando looks nice and warm, while here in Toronto we’re already fighting through snow and ice. We’ll be showcasing more squishycow photos over the coming weeks. If you’d like to see your shots on our blog, add your photos to Flickr with the tag squishycow and then add the photo to the group, Squishycows in the wild. We’ll post a new photo every week or so and link to your photostream."
There is a whole genre of photos on Flickr featuring Squishycows. What has apparently happened is that Jason Gulledge is the creator of the original photo and he uploaded it to Flickr on January 31, 2007. Tucows saw the photo, liked it, and decided to use in the story accompanying their Press Release on August 7, 2007. Tucows is actually at fault for using the photo without attribution and Jason Gulledge is the injured party. I have already left a message on Flickr for Mr. Gullege letting him know that Tucows is using his photo so that he can take the action that he deems necessary. The use of Gulledge's photo on Wikimedia is in the clear because we are providing attribution as required by the Attribution 2.0 Generic License.
As far as the second photo goes, if you google the creator, Leona Hobbs, you will find that she is actually an employee of Tucows so that give her a pretty good reason to have uploaded her photo to Flickr on September 6, 2007. If someone would like to contact her and see if we are using her photo properly they can make a post to her blog.
Best Regards and Merry Christmas (the turkey's cooking in the oven),
