using your Plectroctena_sp_ants photo
Hello, I may be using your photo to illustrate a line to a song I'm making a video of. The song is called Letter From Home, and the line is "This little place," referring to the place romantic love takes us in comparison to where a romance with God will take us, God in the song not particular to any specific religion. It will most likely be posted on YouTube and subsequently on one of my sites (Donny Duke), probably The Chipmunk Press. Since it's a Window's Movie Maker video I put the credit at the end with just attribution to you and that I got it from Wikimedia Commons. Thank you for sharing your work.

You participated at the earlier discussion on licence choice for Featured Pictures. A number of users felt that such restrictions should be made at policy level. Please comment at Commons:Requests for comment/AppropriatelyLicensed. This is a proposal to amend this licence policy to disallow future uploads where the sole licence is inappropriate for the media (e.g., GFDL for images). In earlier discussions there were a number of comments that, while reasonable opinions, did not align with Wikimedia's mission for free content. Please read the FAQ before commenting. Thanks -- Colin (talk) 22:54, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

12.03.2014 Dear Muhammad, Dar is one of our partner cities in the City Resilience Profiling Programme, launched by UN-Habitat in 2012. The Programme is willing to strengthen urban resilience to ensure the effectiveness of response interventions during times of crises (natural, technological and man-made). You can find a short story about the launch of the Programme at this address: http://www.unhabitat.org/content.asp?cid=11639&catid=5&typeid=6&subMenuId=0
I'm writing to you as we would like to use your picture in our new brochure that inform our partners about what's happening in the Programme. It's some kind of a newsletter. This brochure will also be distributed at the UN-Habitat World Urban Forum 7 hosted in Medellin, Columbia in April 2014 (visit http://worldurbanforum7.org for more information on the event). Your name will be written just underneath the picture with the ©. If you want to get the brochure, we can send it to you by email.
We are also thinking of using it in our website which we are building right now to present the city of Dar: www.cityresilience.org/partner_cities. If so i will update this text.
Best regards, Helene FOURNIERE. CRPP/UN-Habitat.
- Thanks, and greetings to you as well :) --Muhammad (talk) 00:34, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

My name is Laurie and I'm the Project Manager for na2ure, an NYC-based startup toy company. We featured this photo (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chrysomya_albiceps_eating.jpg) of yours in our upcoming app, and wanted to thank you for your lovely photo. Thank you!
na2ure is all about designing science play. We developed a game-changing platform called ferret that classifies ecological data into an intuitive network that can be easily learned through play. The high end value of our work attracted STEM>STEAM icon John Maeda, as well as the VCs behind LittleBits, Sphero, Makerbot, and Shapeways. The science has been vetted by MD's and PhD's, tested by kids, and praised by educators as appealing to all ages.
None of this would have been possible without your work. Thank you.
The app is available on the iOS platform and will be released to the public soon. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Anigramit) and Twitter (@anigramit) for a quick, easy way to share the news with your social media network -- and to keep up to date on all the great stuff we’re doing.
Again, thank you! Laurie Vazquez Project Manager, na2ure firstname.lastname@example.org
