Hey, I just added this to the discussion page on the file you uploaded of Edgar Allan Poe. Thought I'd copy and paste it here to keep you in the know: This image may not be in the public domain. It is an illustrated derivative of an original daguerreotype circa 1848-49. Though the daguerreotype is certainly public domain, without further information on this image's illustrator or its date of creation, it is difficult to gauge copyright. Recommend deletion or further information from uploader (especially where the "circa 1830-1850" line came from). --Midnightdreary 17:30, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi - I've blocked them for a couple of days. It looks to me as if you have correctly reverted the map you referred to - if not do let me know and I'll have a go. Please let me know if the user continues to place factually incorrect information - thanks --Herbytalk thyme 18:51, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes, the reversion seems to have worked now. Thanks for your time. Regards, -- RedCoat 09:48, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Je suis désolée ! Effacez l'image. Je vais essayer de mieux comprendre tout ce qui concerne les droits. Je vous prie de croire que je compte faire des progrès, et vous pouvez, sans penser me froisser, effacer toute image sur laquelle j'ai fait une erreur de jugement. Loin de vous en vouloir, j'apprécierai vos corrections. Vous savez bien qu'à trop hésiter on n'avance pas. Je ne justifies pas mes erreurs je veux juste vous expliquer ma bonne foi. Merci beaucoup Elvire 14:37, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Merci beaucoup pour le lien en français. Dorénavant je vais veiller à examiner moi-même les droits. Un grand merci pour votre aide. Elvire 18:48, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
Stop to impair the classification of categories in Wikimedia Commons. This project is not a part of any Wikipedia project, and we have own rules, in particular for classification because Wikipedia projects are very poorly organized.
I saw Image:Gull in Gibraltar.JPG at QI, and I see that two problems it has are chroma noise and CA, which can be fixed with Elements (I'm assuming you have this since it is in the metadata). I'm using an older copy of Photoshop (5.5), but most everything should be on Elements. Anyhow... For the chroma noise, create a duplicate layer of the pic, set blend mode to "color," then go to Filter>Noise>Median, set the radius to 10 pixels, and the chroma noise should be gone. For the CA, flatten the image and create another duplicate layer. Hide it (the eye) and edit the bottom layer. Go Enhance>Adjust color>Replace color (this is different than in 5.5, but it should work), eydropper the reddest part of the CA, set fuzziness to 200, and saturation to -100. Now click the eye on the top layer. Use a soft, small brush and erase away the CA, then flatten the image. Hope this helps. Thegreenj 23:45, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
But it is a plague which is used as a kind of fontain and is placed in the public place in the Disneyland. And I suppose that it is a special thing for everybody to take a photo in front of it... So the low about derivative works has nothing to do with it. Elektron 07:36, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
OK. So what do you say fox example about this sculpture:
. The author is still alive and (thank's to the God) in a good health. The work is placed in a public place, too. And I suppose it is done special for everybody to admire it and to take a photo... And I think that the author do it for a purpose: to be famous on the world. The more picure is public in the media the much famous the author is. So it is for his advantage... Don't you exaggerate in nosing around for any "violation" even if it is only a potencial brake of copyright law? Regards :) Elektron 08:45, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
That's a great news, thanks very much. It's up to you. Of course, I'm honoured with this attention and I'm always pleased to see images be in the FPC's page as it means I make a good work, which is the most important.

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...
RedCoat, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Commons.
