Yo Ho Ho
Hi, I'm working on an educational videogame with which I'm trying to build a bridge between animal awareness and Pokemon fans among others. It started out as something small and I contacted you before, but it's getting bigger and more professional and I wanted to make sure you were still ok with it.
It's regarding this picture: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cow_on_Pupers.jpg
I would like your permission to use it under that license with the following attribution: Nilfanion, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Nilfanion
Also, because I want to make sure there's no misunderstanding, you are the original photographer correct? It sometimes happens that another person simply takes a picture from somebody else and uploads it to wikipedia with a license to distribute. That is why I'm asking.
There is more information on the game here, including a short video that tells a little bit about the background: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/238178285/animalalbum
I also have a demo version of the game available so you can see for yourself in what way the pictures are presented: http://dromedarydreams.com/index/demo/0-8
Please let me know if I have your permission, if the picture is yours and if you want a different attribution.
With kind regards, Sjors Jansen email@example.com
- I'm fine with you using the image in the manner you describe - the attribution is fine like that. The license gives you permission to use it without needing to seek permission from me.
- As for if the image is mine - yes it is - as I assert on the file's description page. If you have real concerns about the authorship of the image - asking me isn't going to help ;)--Nilfanion (talk) 20:20, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you very much! I appreciate it. I just want to do whatever I can to make sure I'm talking to the right people and letting them know and such. It happens that photographers are sort of ok with CC in general, but would prefer I didn't use a particular image for instance. Thanks again! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Garfunkel_Jansen

Hi, any idea what's going on here?
There are several artefacts on the image: three straight lines and a small patch of transparency for example. When I look at the "Original file (SVG)" the dark lines have gone but there is a colour anomaly where the long NW-SE line was. Sussexonian (talk) 07:57, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
