Honorary Elf[edit]

Thanks for your work on getting Derby Museums Wright .... I mean right. I'm sure tyouve come across this effect but it its like the elves have been busy in the night. The whole idea of the Derby project came from work with the British Museum. We did a lot of good work, but when we had finished it was just as impressive as it was when we arrived. So what effect can we have on a smaller museum? Thanks for helping with the experiment. Victuallers (talk) 09:16, 14 March 2011 (UTC) and the elves keep going... Im talking to the museum about releasing more images including (I hope) costume from Pickford House Victuallers (talk) 08:48, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

COM:NARA[edit]

Hey Paula. We are going to be soon starting a major batch upload of NARA files to Commons. To coordinate I think it would be nice to have a spiffy project page along the lines of w:WP:NARA and s:WS:NARA, though it doesn't necessarily need to be that sophisticated. If you'd like to help and have any ideas, please go for it. ;-) I've cut down COM:NARA into a basic introduction, with the idea that each of the three (currently red-linked) efforts would go in the tabs across the top. If you want to build the infrastructure again, we can fill in those pages as we go. Thanks. Dominic (talk) 21:45, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:The National Archives (United Kingdom)[edit]

Hi, I notice you recently created this category and wondered why. The National Archives are unique in being called "The National Archives" and we make no special country suffix for the French or US categories for their National Archives. Was there a consensus that the UK was a special case? Thanks (talk) 17:15, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

It's a big assumption to take the Wikipedia name (which has been multiply contested and changed back and forth, see en:Talk:The_National_Archives_(United_Kingdom)#Requested_move) and use this as a category name. The name is inaccurate as The National Archives is not for the United Kingdom. The name "The National Archives" is actually unique in phrasing as other National Archives drop the "The" from their official name. I will raise the question of the name changes on the Wikipedia article by email with our point of contact at TNA and see what his recommendation is as to the best Wikipedia article title wording, we can then reflect on what this might mean for future Commons categorization. Cheers (talk) 09:12, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
TNA got back to me, they don't really care much about the Wikipedia article and are happy to leave as is. Similarly, I think the category name is technically and politically incorrect (as the TNA is not representing the United Kingdom) but will let it ride unless a discussion starts up here on Commons. -- (talk) 15:42, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion; I did assume that the commonscat link (to an empty category, at the time) was TNA's preferred choice. I'm happy to undo my changes if needed. Just let me know. It's small enough now that reversing things by hand wouldn't take more than a few hours. - PKM (talk) 17:01, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Could you please provide copyright/licensing information?

The licensing information is on the image page. It's public domain in the US, but may not be in your location. - PKM (talk) 16:56, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I know, but if you uploaded it to Wikipedia, what is the source then?
