Hi, thanks for your question. I'm away from a keyboard most of today, but I plan on giving a reply this evening when I can also have time to review the discussion linked. -- (talk) 10:37, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For your voice of reason, this has ruined my morning and been exceptionally frustrating. --WPPilot (talk) 18:09, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi WPPilot, Yes I can understand if it has been upsetting. May I ask you to also try and de-escalate the situation. Likme avoid writing more in CAPS LOCK. It is perceived as shouting, and indicates you are upset. I think that now where you have explained yourself how this has been possible, the situation will be resolved. I am sorry to see you were met with such bad faith and belittling language. The other side to this coin is that our admins are overloaded with work, working as volunteers and are used to be exposed by shitloads of copyviolations, so sometimes mistakes are made, because the contributions had a lot of the typical characteristics of right not being correct. Again, I hope you can get your dispute resolved calm and easily with the admins. PLease do not remove notices on the file pages even if you find them unfair. They are requests and not verdicts. If the process is followed, it will all be resolved following the normal processes. -- Slaunger (talk) 18:16, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Slaunger... thanks for the heads up... I had forgotten!![edit]

Hello Slaunger and Happy New Year (a bit late for that I guess...). Thanks a lot for the heads up, I had completely forgotten about the POTY competition... I have been away most of January; I went to the Himalayas, trying to see and photograph a Snow Leopard... which I did, although sadly the picture is from far away. A very tough trip, very low temperatures, very high altitude... but I came back with some great images of Himalayan fauna. Will upload some soon. Regarding the POTY, I am honestly excited now, and touched as well... it is so fantastic to see that people appreciate my images. That is why I make them, after all... So thanks again, and fingers crossed. Best, A --Arturo de Frias Marques (talk) 21:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
