I am an administrator here; if you have a problem, let me know how I can help! My present focus on Commons is on uploading images of members of the Iowa General Assembly and properly categorizing the images of various United States politicians. I am also active on the English Wikipedia, where I am an also an administrator and where I am focusing on the Government section of WikiProject Iowa, particularly with regards to Iowa legislators (watchlist). I am also an administrator on the Simple English Wikipedia, though I am not currently active on that project.


I often find {{Iowa General Assembly official portrait permission}} to be useful.

Quotable Quote[edit]

  • "Excuse me," said Ransom. "But it is funny, you know. The idea of a man thinking he could become a saint as a minor detail in his scientific training. You might as well imagine you could use the stairs of heaven as a short cut to the nearest tobacconist's. Don't you see that long before you had reached the level of timeless experience you would have had to become so interested in something else - or Someone Else - that you wouldn't be bothering about time-travel?" (DT1)

Comments on copyright, etc. are in reference to the various Wikimedia policies and should not be relied upon for legal purposes. Similarly, edits related to legal topics are for general understanding (as in a Free Encyclopedia) and should not be relied upon for legal matters. It goes without saying, but an encyclopedic article or discussion can not substitute for a meeting with an attorney who is familiar with the specific facts of your case and who is familiar with the national, state/provincial, and local laws and regulations.
