Wondering...[edit]

Could I use some of your horse pics in a graphic? I've uploaded two of my graphics...Kelpie and Dancing in the Seas. I credit on the image. Example: Username@commons.wikimedia.org

Directly on the image only...It would be used on ponybox.com, a game I play. I'll show you it here if you like when I finish. It usually takes me a while.

Anything I've taken and put on Commons is free for any use. Attribution is nice, of course. Ealdgyth (talk) 20:21, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

File names[edit]

Please note that you can put spaces in file names, so there is no need to have a continuous string of letters as in "File:Britishmuseumdunstableswanjewelsidecroppedclose.jpg". Snowmanradio (talk) 20:20, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Dear Ealdgyth,

Thank you for contributing to Wiki Loves Monuments and sharing your pictures with the whole world. You are very welcome to keep uploading images, even though you can't win prizes any longer. To get started on editing relevant Wikipedia articles, click here for more information and help.
You can find all uploaded pictures in our central media collection Wikimedia Commons. Many photos are already used in Wikipedia. The contest was very successful with more than 165,000 images submitted throughout Europe. To make future contests even more successful, we would like to invite you to share your experiences with us in this survey.

Kind regards,
the Wiki Loves Monuments team

Though the collection of images for the contest has been completed (as we informed you previously), the organizers of the contest "Wikipedia loves Petersburg" are glad to update you on the current course of events.

Our jury is working hard; on November, 1 it will declare the winners and the recipients of special prizes. We ask those of you who have not yet set up an e-mail address to do it at user preferences page so that the jury could contact the participants of the contest and to hand out the awards. The winners of the European-wide Wiki Loves Monuments competition will be announced later, in mid-November.

Already on November 2 in St. Petersburg, the Art-hotel "Rachmaninov", located on 5, Kazanskaya St., will open an exhibition of works by the participants of the contest. We inform you about the opening time via the website http://wikilovesmonuments.ru/

If you have any questions or need help with Wikimedia Commons, you can contact user kaganer. You can ask any questions about the contest by sending an e-mail to info@wikimedia.ru

Thank you again for your participation!.

"Wikipedia loves Petersburg" contest results are summed up[edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments Logo notext.svg

On November, 1 the winners of the contest "Wiki Loves Monuments" were announced.

It was difficult to select the winners. More than 450 users participated in the contest, having uploaded more than 4400 photographs. The Organizing Committee thanks everybody who took part, tried their hands, and agreed to make their work available to the whole world. There is fascinating work ahead of Wikipedia users: To employ the images to illustrate the articles in Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia which is available in 270 languages.

Do not get upset if you have not won. Look into Wikipedia articles - you may soon find your work there, to help people to visualise the buildings you have taken photographs of. Besides, we will contact you to hand you in a souvenir to recognize your particiation. We hope you will accept this sign of our gratitude.

If you have a chance, you can visit the exhibition of photographs, which has been organized in Saint Petersburg and shows some of the photographs submitted to the contest.

We hope you will participate in the future competitions planned by Wikimedia RU and thank you for your contribution.

You can ask any questions about the contest by sending an e-mail to info@wikimedia.ru.

Sincerely,
In the name of the Organizing Committee,
Lvova Anastasia.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Plagiarism[edit]

As the top investigator in finding plagiarism, your statement was right and Montanabw was horribly, horribly wrong. The guy consistently plagiarized and had information from myself for over a year before it came out and he vanished. He still has the problems. It wasn't minor or just one paragraph. It was a whole status built on a lie of legitimate contributions. Ottava Rima (talk) 19:46, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Location?[edit]

Hi Ealdgyth - can you add photo locations to File:Magellanicpenguinalpha.jpg and File:Magellanicpenguinbeta.jpg please, also categorise in Category:Spheniscus magellanicus in captivity if relevant. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 10:29, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
