image use

Dear Walter,

I am writing a book about lagomorphs, with co-author John Seidensticker, for Johns Hopkins University Press, to be published in fall 2010, called "Rabbits: the Animal Answer Guide." I found two of your images here that we would like to use in the book, an American pika and a brush rabbit at

I'm not sure it is necessary given the license notices, but I am asking for your explicit permission to use these images. I am new to Wikimedia and have gotten conflicting advice about whether such permission is required; perhaps you can clarify?

Thank you very much. Regards, Susan Lumpkin, susanlumpkin@gmail.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.163.191.9 (talk • contribs) 12:57, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Banned user userpages

I was following an old thread involving User:Pogrebnoj-Alexandroff and had to dig to find his old userpage. Is it standard practice to blank userpages for banned users, rather than sticking the "banned" template at the top? +sj + 03:56, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
