Jacquire King Photo (File:Jacquire-king-sm.jpg)
You deleted my photo, but I took the photo of myself and gave it to KRK to use on my behalf... So I was under the impression that I was within the rules of use. Can you clarify for me?
- Hi THELBT,
- though I didn't actually delete the image, I had tagged it for deletion after I found it to be a crop from the larger image shown on http://www.krksys.com/krk-featured-users/jacquire-king.html. Such a scenario suggests a copyvio. In addition, the EXIF data of the uncropped version from krksys.com says "Copyright - Joshua Hill Photography". So, if you are this Joshua Hill, then you should send a confirmation from your business email address (no hotmail and alike) to email@example.com confirming your original authorship in this photo and confirming the release of the cropped version under the choosen cc-by-sa-3.0 license. Don't forget to mention the filename on Commons. --Túrelio (talk) 08:14, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
