- That user has uploaded a few images long long time ago whith the text "Permission provided by Marc-Antoine Dunais via email for distribution under the following license:...". I have asked user on 2010-04-05 if he still has the mail. --MGA73 (talk) 11:37, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
|Hello, MichaelJLowe. You have new messages at MGA73's talk page.
- Apologies to all concerned. I did a number of things in reviewing that flickr image; first, I obviously checked flickr to see if the license had changed to a free one (it had not), then I rechecked the file page here to recheck on the permissions to use the image, saw it was supposed to be an email, noted the age of the picture, checked the user's contribs and noticed nothing for 10 months or so. My viewpoint was one of protecting the project and so went ahead with the (copyvio/review failed) tag and posted a notice here. I feel I did the right thing (it was deleted afterall), but can see the point made in going about it in a different manner for some cases. Thanks for the heads up, hope you can get the permission sorted out as it is a nice pic, and it'd be a shame to lose it. :) fr33kman -s- 00:15, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
