... it is that :p
But hey, it works alright and we get fast responses, so why not make it easier on eachother! Now, I had better not get a response today; you should be ASLEEP! -- Editor at Large • talk 15:50, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Not a problem; it obviously wasn't working right for me, either. I don't even know how to rotate images, but I saw that one of your past versions was correct, so I guess it worked out OK. -Hit bull, win steak 13:29, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Hi. I was just deleting this image when Ice Cube - You Can Do It came on the radio I'm listening to. Very weird. Anyway, thanks for the support in my RfA, I'm sure I will not disappoint you. Regards. Adambro 15:10, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Bow Wow image
I noticed you copied the Bow Wow image from the original one that I uploaded. However, when I was dropping by Flickr a few minutes ago, and looked at Free6Man's photos and the image doesn't exist there anymore! So, if you have a Flickr account, you may want to ask Free6Man about the image. Yung6 22:00, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
it's done with templates, at least for all the standard wikis. Feel free to use the templates if you like. I have one more to create to address all the meta-ish ones... ++Lar: t/c 18:02, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Good luck on your Rfa. Looks like it is going extremely well. :-) FloNight 13:30, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
Congratulations, Dear Administrator!
Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.
Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons @ irc.freenode.net.
Thanks for reviewing this image, I was just wondering if you know if there is a policy on commons on editing images, which I did (poorly) in this case. (original / edited). Is there some sort of task force where people who actually know a thing or two about image editing who could do a better job? Cheers, JACOPLANE • 2007-06-28 16:01
Hi, this is Marja from the Spanish wikipedia, I loved that Amy Lee pic during Download Festival and I put it on spanish Amy Lee article. I hope you don´t mind, it is a perfect picture, and I hope you or the author don´t get mad... If you don´t agree with having the pic on the spanish wikipedia please, remove it from there. But I hope you don´t remove it... =) So, greets from Spain!
Hi Riana. It's me your friend King Lopez from Wikipedia. What are you doing here? It seems like you are everywhere Riana. Where is Phaedriel? I can't find her here. I am unable to log in to my username here. So I am using an IP address. Take care. King Lopez. --184.108.40.206 01:35, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
What was the difference between the permission you okayed for Image:KristinGauvin.jpg and the one you rejected for Image:MurielClauson.jpg. I have contact the author of the latter image to get a more specific release, but this surprised me because the correspondance was pretty similar with both authors (by the way, I sent the two permissions from different email accounts).

OTRS emails heading my way
No problem! I was having no luck with the permissions address I found here so thought I'd try the other one... seems you are on the ball! Just one thing... not sure if you've overlooked it or not but the permission for this image (which you've logged) is also for this one. All in all it's been a successful few days of image hunting... I've been pleasantly surprised by how willing people have been to release images! My "speciality" is one where it's hard to find free images so I'm smiling :) PageantUpdater 08:57, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Sorry you are absolutely right; it is from the German wiki site (the French one is very similar!). Here is the link. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:Mont-Collon.jpg Cheers! Ericoides 06:42, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
I add information of Author:Pushkin (He died in 1837). is that enough? I don't know how I can complete it. can you help me? thank you azizi 07:48, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Hey stranger :) Fancy seeing you here... anyway, I've a favor to ask: since you're a trusted user and an admin here as well (I mean, come on now. Do you ever sleep?), I was wondering if you could have a look at the above image and let me know if everything checks out? This is my first upload of a Flickr image after over a thousand of my own work, so I'm not sure if I've done everything correctly :P
I changed the file name to something humanly recognizable and messed around with the description a bit, but I don't know if there's any part of the "procedure" I missed. Thanks :) Fvasconcellos 00:47, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
Sarah Chalke picture from Flickr
we are in dire need of a picture for Sarah Chalke on wikipedia. I came upon your comment on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dnizzy22/83946419/ did you succeed in convincing dnizzy22 to make the image free for wikipedia? The picture is pretty good. I do not own a Flickr account so I can't contact him myself, but if you could try asking him again that would be really cool. I'll check back here later in case you respond.
Thank you for Palazzo Bembo (it will be used on a page about Antonio Vivaldi - fr:Wiki) Gérard Janot 11:12, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
An image you reviewed, Image:Ribery2.jpg seems to be a cropped version of http://www.olympique-et-lyonnais.com/images/ribery.jpg . Also, it looks like the image might be a screenshot taken from a TV broadcast, so I think it might not be appropriate for commons. Cheers, JACOPLANE • 2007-08-27 14:57
Deletion of Image
Deletion of image BurjDubaiHeight.png
The log says you deleted this image for copyvio. That is incorrect. I, the original uploader to english wikipedia, created the image from scratch. Another user moved the image to commons. Removing this image has damaged articles in several wikipedias. Please restore it asap. en:User:Astronaut 220.127.116.11 12:08, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Hey Riana. Your userpage says you're going to be on commons so I came here. When/if you can, please come on to IRC so we can talk. I should be on for the whole day, since I have to be home for at least the next 6 hours. If for some reason you can't get on IRC, e-mail me please. TeckWiz 14:51, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
May you please delay some days the deletion? It's been a mistake from the author, as you can read in the flikcr picture comments he has given the permission to use it in the Wikipedia, but mistaken the license. I've already contacted him.--Friviere 12:54, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Dear Riana. I need your help with a very serious and annoying issue. I became a member of Wikimedia commons in order to contribute to Wikipedia as a whole. I've uploaded some very interesting and useful information connected with anthropology and history research. But the user User:ForeignerFromTheEast is constantly vandalizing my contributions by deleting the license tags. By doing this he is disturbing my contribution process. Other users have warned him for vandalism on his talk page, but he keeps on deleting the licenses and the comments on his talk page. Please check his contributions and you will see that the only thing he does is deleting my contributions. Please act by the protocol and give him a warning. This kind of behavior is not allowed on Wikimedia. With respect. Revizionist 21:18, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
Riana thank you very much. I will talk to the head of the department for ethnology and modern history and they will write a document stamped with the official stamp of the library, and also I will give them your mail. I have used "pd-self" license for those photos that I have taken (that is, the pictures I took from the photos in the library and archives). I am new in Wikimedia and i am not familiar with the licenses, and I will appreciate that you will change and put an appropriate license when I take the document. I will ask them, and they will surely agree. That will happen some time next week. BUT please Riana, tell ForeignerFromTheEast, or put him under administrative ban until I provide this document. I want you to stop him from changing the license. Please write soon. With great respect. Revizionist 21:54, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Greetings Riana, here's the outside observer's comment. I've been busy trying to oversee these image issues over at en-wiki. I guess both sides have some points here. Revisionist is a good-faith contributor but has had some issues with dodgy understanding of image copyrights; F.f.t.E is on something of a crusade using copyright arguments to win POV disputes and he sometimes overdoes it. This situation needs looking into. Please contact me on en-wiki if you need more background info. Thanks, Future Perfect at Sunrise 16:28, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Hi, you deleted one of Oggin60s_CDex_2.ogg, Oggin60s_CDex_1.ogg was also deleted for copyright violation. Could you please provide further details so I can fix this and hopefully re-upload the instructional videos? I had been informed that screenshots featuring free software were probably acceptable Commons:Help_desk#Howto_videos
Image:Petr Cech 2.jpg
Hi Riana, it's been pointed out to me that Image:Petr Cech 2.jpg is not actually a picture of Petr Cech, but of Carlo Cudicini. Could you perhaps delete the image, since the name as it is not is not correct. Thanks, JACOPLANE • 2007-10-7 08:43
