Dear Af3, you uploaded Image:Francis Turbine Low flow.jpg and Image:Francis Turbine High flow.jpg and named the original uploader pud. Please be more carefull in finding out who did the pictures. This ist not a big deal now, but if if you name the original uploader wrong it is against GFDL. Nothing happened here, wish you a good night and much fun at wikipedia.

transfer to commons
Hey! While transfering images from local Wikipedias to Wikimedia Commons please pay attention to use the correct licence tags from the original uploader and to mention his name – otherwise it’s a violation of copyrights. Commons helper is a nice tool to automate image transfer – give it a try. Regards,
