Musicasgratis[edit]

Hi, I blocked this account undef. I suppose it is a new sock of coordinated uploads of copyrighted music. Right? Musicasgratis (talk · contribs) Yann (talk) 23:09, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Adding a photo - need help[edit]

Hello

I'm trying to add a photo on the Wikipedia page en:Nic Case. There seems to be some policies that might be an issue. One- I'm the one contributing to my own page. (not sure about this, is this a conflict?) Two- It could be interpreted that I'm holding a "toy" that would violate copyright.The RC that I am holding, I made. (not sure about this, is this a conflict?)

I think Wikipedia is the greatest thing on the web. I have contributed money to keeping this going. However, I 'personally" I'm having a hard time navigating to make "amendment" to pages. I need help. I'm not even sure how you will respond to this.


Looking forward to your response --Rcspeed (talk) 14:26, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Here is really conflict of interest, but you can upload photos nevertheless. But remember: you must be copyright holder, that means photographer. Do not upload photos about yourself (except selfies), because probably they are protected with copyright. Be careful with photos previously published on Internet, that case own work is considered dubious and OTRS-permission from copyright holder (that means from photographer, not from depicted person) is needed. So far you have uploaded nothing. Taivo (talk) 19:53, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Queen Elizabeth II March 2015.jpg[edit]

This photograph is used on 53 different projects, so needs to be stable. There have been repeated reverts, could someone consider protection or advising the reverters? Thanks -- (talk) 21:05, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

There should be a protection on the file. The current version is stable. --Hazhk (talk) 21:51, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
