Featured Picture candidate - Elisabethkirche Schneeberg.jpg[edit]

Dear colleague,

Thank you very much for your constructive comment related to my picture Elisabethkirche Schneeberg.jpg. I have re-worked the file in order to reduce the noise. I would greatly appreciate if you could give your advice if you see the necessity for further improvements. In case the new version is now in accordance with your criteria for a Featured Image, I would be glad if you could revise your vote accordingly. Many thanks and kind regards, Hendric Stattmann (talk) 09:21, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

File:Sarychev Peak.jpg: License disputed[edit]

Hi The High Fin Sperm Whale,

User Avenue added a {{disputed}} tag. I believe the reason he gave is quite correct, since you uploaded the image with File:Sarychev Peak Volcano erupts on Matua Island.jpg as it's source, which is {{cc-by-sa-2.0}} licensed. The original for that was in the public domain, which means, among other things, that everybody is free to modify or re-license it (as the Flickr user did).

Please license your work (File:Sarychev Peak.jpg) under the {{cc-by-sa-2.0}} license. Be sure to keep atleast the prevous attributions in tact and adding your own as disired. You may do so by replacing the {{PD-NASA}} tag.

The original attribution was "John". Something like the the following would be valid example:

=={{int:license-header}}==
{{cc-by-sa-2.0|attribution=
[[User:The High Fin Sperm Whale|The High Fin Sperm Whale]], [http://flickr.com/photos/97838323@N00 John]
}}

If you do not wish to license your image under the Creative Commons license, then this work is likely a copyright violation (which you probably didn't intend it to be ;-) ) and would have to be removed from Commons. Sorry if this all sounds complicated, licenses can be a plain sometimes.

Feel free to ask me or the Copyright questions page if you need anything.

Thanks, –Krinkletalk 22:09, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks, it looks good now. –Krinkletalk 23:17, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

photo credit[edit]

Hi there,

I'd like to give you credit for photo of a Northwestern Salamander that you took. We're using the photo in a free brochure about Yukon Amphibians. Though Northwestern Salamander are not found in Yukon, it's one to watch for as many animals move north.

Send your name to carrie.mcclelland@gov.yk.ca and I'd be happy to give credit.

Cheers Carrie

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Image use on Wikify.ru[edit]

Hallo The High Fin Sperm Whale, your nice image File:Clearfin lionfish (Pterois radiata).JPG is used on the website wikify.ru in a currently license-violating manner (no author credit, no mentioning of the license). Regrettably, this website seems to belong a user (even admin) on :ru and Commons. If you like, you may comment here or here. This would be especially relevant in case you have granted to User:Gruznov special conditions for use of your image, which differ from the CC license, as then this use may not constitute a license-violation. --Túrelio (talk) 08:18, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
