Mt. Watatic photo[edit]

Hi Chfriend. Welcome to Commons (and Wikipedia). I wanted to let you know about a problem with the licensing of the photo that you uploaded today, first as Image:DSC00297.JPG, and then as Image:Chfriend mt watatic base marker.jpg. There is nothing wrong with the licensing that you indicated on the first photo — you indicated that you are its creator and copyright holder, and that you would allow others to use it under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). During the subsequent upload, however you indicated that only Wikipedia and related sites could use the image, and forbid commercial use. All images on Commons (and with very few exceptions, all on Wikipedia too) must be available under a free license that allows anyone to use or modify the work for any purposes. You can read all about our licensing requirements here.

I hope that you will agree to license the photo under the GFDL. If so, we should add this information to the second copy, the one with the descriptive title, and delete the first copy. If not, please let us know by adding this code to the image page {{speedydelete|I did not intent to release this image under the GFDL}}. Be aware that the GFDL is technically irrevocable, but we will delete the image as a courtesy to you if you request it soon.

This is a lot of info, I know. If you have any questions about the project, our copyright policies, or dealing with this particular image, please do not hesitate to ask. You can either respond right here on this page (I'll check back later), or leave me a message on my talk page. ×Meegs 10:04, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
