File:Arecibo message.svg[edit]

When I optimized the SVG file, I really had to change the overall pixel dimensions (i.e. default display size), because 313x938 was kind of stupid dimensioning -- it was not exactly a 1:3 ratio, for one thing; and 313x938 had no natural relationship to the internal coordinate system of the SVG file. I'm not intimately familiar with how the annotation system works, but your annotations are still on the page, but apparently they don't display because "|dimx=313|dimy=938|" no longer matches the dimensions of the current file version. If you give me a minute, I'll apply a rough-and-ready scaling multiplication to the annotations which should restore their display (but you'll have to check whether you're satisfiied with the results)... AnonMoos (talk) 18:10, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't understand your color comments -- I don't see any orange when I move the mouse pointer over the image... AnonMoos (talk) 18:50, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but I'm not an expert in annotations or browser renderings, so it's unlikely that seeing the image would enable me to offer useful advice... AnonMoos (talk) 20:07, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Quick update on Russian copyright[edit]

"Attention! If the author of this work was subjected to repression and rehabilitated posthumously, countdown of copyright protection began not from the death date, but from the rehabilitation date. If the work was first published posthumously, the copyright term is counted from the date of that first publication, unless the author was later rehabilitated, in which case it runs again from that later rehabilitation date." From the info page. So is the work counted from the rehabilitation date? There is also this: "Copyright body corporate has expired since the last 70 years from the publication of the work, and if the work was not published, - from the date of its creation." So when was the photo published/taken? And does this supersede the fact that the author died later? Checking at village pump would probably be best Freedom to share (talk) 19:35, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Libyan Seal[edit]

Since you chose to use such infantile language, let me be just as blunt. You can not remove a DR notice. Only an Admin is allowed to do that, once they have closed the deletion as either a delete or a keep. You have done it twice, do it a third time, and I will report you for vandalism. These are the rules, we all are bound by them. Fry1989 eh? 23:52, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

grow up--Canoe1967 (talk) 23:53, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
I told you I would report you. You didn't listen. Here you go buddy!. Fry1989 eh? 00:02, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
As I also told you, we have several different maps (File:Flag-map of Russia.svg and File:Flag-map of Russia-edit.svg). Users can choose what one to use. If you're going to tell me to grow up, act like an adult yourself. Fry1989 eh? 00:13, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
The map has been the way it is for 15 months. That is consensus. I have shown you the two maps above, people can chose what one to use, and you are vandalising the file by continuing to edit war on it. Fry1989 eh? 00:24, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Who is telling who to grow up now?--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:08, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Idk if I should be disturbed or flattered that you were holding on to this a year later thinking you found a "gotcha" moment of hypocrisy, or that you unable to see the difference of telling someone to "grow up" on substance and telling someone to "grow up" because you have nothing better to respond with. In any case, this certainly is something to smile about, and you only have yourself to blame really. Fry1989 eh? 02:18, 25 October 2013 (UTC)


Answer to Copyright on MIDI question[edit]

See copyright and MIDI files. Ask any questions on the talk page. -- MarkAHershberger(talk) 22:13, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

BTW of ...[edit]

..this, you are right, but you should also keep in mind that a remarkable share of the photos uploaded here are re-scans of photos or negative films that come from the pre-digital era. I myself uploaded photos coming from 1980s and 1990s, my first digital takes are no older than 10 years, and still upload photos taken with analog Reflex camera which I still have (see photos in this category) :-) -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 09:52, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Page: Colin Ratushniak[edit]

Hi, I think you have put a Personality Rights tag on my photo on the page above and I just wondered if you could explain what this is? This is the first page that I've created and the first attempt at uploading photos (think I've made a mess of it to be honest!), but I'm worried that I need to do something with this and not sure what? Thanks for your help. :)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Thank you. I will try to avoid saying Boobs! in my edit summaries from now on.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:01, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Statue image[edit]

I don't think that I can help sadly. I visit the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver Point Grey only once a year now and I live in [Surrey I know only UBC and Vancouver Point Grey--since I studied there for my undergraduate degree in the mid-1990's--and downtown Vancouver ( a little) but this park is located elsewhere in the City of Vancouver. Perhaps someone else on flickr may have taken images of this statue in the park. Personally, I don't know if there is any statue to this person at all, I'm afraid.

I found the text very humorous. Does wikipedias need to be Wikipedia's as well? I am unsure if it is always capped but should have the posessive apostrophe.

Be more kind[edit]

Hi there, in relation to this, could you please be more kind, and retract it. We on Commons are mellow people, and we should give editors an opportunity to fix their mistakes. It may be a case of the editor in question not realising that the problem is not yet fixed, but they have been advised again on at COM:VP. That message will only inflame tensions, and whilst it is somewhat block-worthy, let's show others that we on Commons do the right thing, and give editors the opportunity to fix any problems, just like I am giving to you now. Cheers, russavia (talk) 06:04, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much for that. You may wish to write the editor a kindly worded message on their talk page to alert them that their problem is not yet fixed, or you may leave it for someone else to do, which I am sure someone will pop along shortly to do. Cheers, russavia (talk) 06:17, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Are you thinking of Vandalising Wikipedia ? I am, seriously, looking at all the trolling of any kind of fun whatsoever on commons, like getting all of the Wh-/polandball deleted, and then I'm like, doing image searches for tassles and umbrellas for the pope's thingo whatsie in the GFX lab, and I come across this picture and it's caption which I find cheerful, and used it as such. Do you wish you had a dog like that ? I wonder if it can fetch. Yeah, I think they have it easy. Seems when good people don't stick together that the asswipes form a wad and cause a lot of trouble. Then of course good people leave, but that just surrenders the whole project to the beastly poofy trolls. Why do that ? bah ! Naa, stick about there is fun to be had yet.

There are the people who want help with the machinma, they'd be sad if you left as well. I'm not saying work hard or anything, just stick about. Penyulap 16:10, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Heirs[edit]

I am puzzled by your repeated contention that Mrs Hopper may have had no heirs. In the absence of direct descendents there are still siblings, various degrees of cousins, and their descendents. Or am I missing your point entirely? Dankarl (talk) 00:18, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Timms[edit]

Two more now categorised (one of which was mislabelled as Timmins) - both panoramas of New Westminster. I don't think we've any others; if we do, they're not labelled with his name. We've some pretty good coverage of Vancouver by other photographers, though. Andrew Gray (talk) 22:56, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

For Commons, we need PD in the US plus PD in country of origin\first publication (in this case Canada). In Canada, photographs can be public domain if a) the author died more than 50 years ago; or b) it was created in 1948 or earlier. This much is nice and simple.
For the US, however, things are more complicated. It is public domain if it was published anywhere in the world before 1923. If it was first published in Canada after that date, it may be in the public domain in the US if and only if it had passed into the public domain in Canada before 1996. Determining whether this is the case is difficult! Andrew Gray (talk) 23:13, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Review of Commons' Scope is now OPEN[edit]

Hi. Earlier this year you were instrumental in starting a discussion of Commons' scope at Commons:Requests for comment/scope. I am hoping we can build on the very interesting discussion that happened there, and I would like to invite you to add your further thoughts to a broader review now underway at Review of Commons' Scope. All the best, --MichaelMaggs (talk) 12:05, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Aluminum mineral[edit]

Who knew, it does exist in nature! however, only in miniscule quantities. of course, we may someday find "native" aluminum on another planet with the appropriate chemical conditions, but then we may not call it "native" if native means native to Terra. maybe "Arean aluminium", or "Venusian aluminium". and then, what if the humans colonizing those planets break away from iupac naming and call it "aluminum", will we have a naming war again between the Terran English term, and the Martian English term?Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:17, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

dead folk....[edit]

I see no reason not to include the original photographer's credit. I don't know who Larrigan was but there's a lot of his pics around. Some like Leonard Frank are notable and there is in fact a subcollection at BC Archives and/or UBC Special Collections and/or Vancouver Archives and such, maybe at Nat'l Archives too. Unless a company name, I've been including photo credits when posting these on Wikipedia, I see no reason not to, and they should remain in the Commons file description IMO. Being dead doesn't mean they're not notable, or their creation of the photo is not worth mentioning.Skookum1 (talk) 05:38, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

He may be worthy of an article as I did with w:Philip Timms after that I discovered more photos of his an added them to Category:Philip T. Timms--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:39, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

While I'm here.....[edit]

  • Any idea if this "Moose Canyon" is maybe on the upper Fraser in the area of Moose Lake? There's nothing in BC Names about it, could be Alberta-side of the Rockies I guess...if it's the Rockies, it could be nearly anywhere File:Moose Canyon (HS85-10-24782).jpg.Skookum1 (talk) 05:46, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
Found it in Jasper. The photos look very similar but probably taken from the same viewpoint 40 years apart.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:58, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
I found a Moose river near Jasper that looks like it has a canyon north of the railway bridge. If you do street view (drag the yellow guy to any blue section of road) there is a sign at both ends of most bridges naming the river.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:35, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
If you compare the mountain here in street view it seems a very close match to the 1911 file. I took a couple of screen shots to compare: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50919224/2013vs1911.jpg .--Canoe1967 (talk) 18:22, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I've noted this on the collection talkpage, but wondering if you're familiar with the Premier Range; could this be that Mt McBride? Looks more like Rockies than the Cariboos to me File:Mt McBride (HS85-10-24784).jpg. But if it's the Rockies, then this is an old name that's no longer on the map.Skookum1 (talk) 05:48, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
Mt. McBride, Vancouver Island, but ours looks like it was taken from the opposite, Wolf River side, not Buttle Lake. Hard to tell because the shape would seem very different I assume. I think we have a Wikipedian that is a member at Bivouac.com.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:58, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
I also emailed the local paper in McBride, BC, just west of Jasper, Alberta where another mountain is.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:18, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
I guess when searched for it on BC Names I must have limited it to "Mount McBride" rather than just "McBride", which I did this time and found the BC Names entry near the town of McBride.....NB be cautious with bivouac.com, even though that said "official" on his name field, quite often they're not; he's been naming things willy-nilly and being vague about origins (him).....I could make a you a list of his impositions and misrepresentations, e.g. "Mount Seton" he named near Lillooet, to locals it's Goat Mountain, he says he doesn't care about locals, he has as much "right" to name things as anyone and so on.....so when I saw his bivouac listing I was skeptical, but it is in BC Names....I"m gonna replicated the historical geographic regions categories here, btw, I don't like using regional districts as geographical subdivisions, they're not practical, have no historical relevance, and require original research to determine.Skookum1 (talk) 04:44, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Ergo, if it doesn't exist already, this would go in Category:Robson Valley as well as in Category:Canadian Rockies and whatever subrange category there may be for that area, if any. Category:Mountains named for politicians doesn't exist in either Wikimedia Commons or in Wikipedia, but it is a thought, hm?Skookum1 (talk) 04:46, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Just reading bivouac's entry, "broad rounded peak" doesn't sound like it....jury's out until we hear from the McBride paper, I guess.....Skookum1 (talk) 05:01, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

calling for discussion[edit]

I found your account of someone tracing the old license plate of the vehicle bought by your dad interesting. It reminded me of some deletion discussions we have had in the past. Former contributor User:Sherurcij uploaded images from anonymous postings from a websited called al Shabab, or something like that, that published anonymous postings from militants.

If the anonymous jihadists who made one of these videos could be traced they might very well find their first fan letter delivered by a predator drone. And, in the very unlikely event that negotations resulted in al Qaeda no longer being classified as an underground terrorist group, how would the author of that anonymous video ever prove they were the author?

I didn't know whether introducing this discussion at the DR would merely confuse the issue. But I see it as another instance of anonymously sourced images for which it can be argued are de facto public domain. Geo Swan (talk) 09:54, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

It would be hard to prove who the original rights holders are. If a site claims they are PD or CC-by then we should be able to host them. Some would go to DR but I doubt the community would stop using uploads from the site altogether. File:Visual consent image.jpg is a sample of another method that may work. Just stamp the license right in the work.--Canoe1967 (talk) 15:50, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Something shiny for you[edit]

Jaguar head shot.jpg The WikiJaguar Award for Excellence
Just a little token of my appreciation for literally being one of the best talk page stalkers I have ever had! Thanks again for all your hard work so far! -FASTILY 20:19, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much! If policy would allow then I could comment that many of the whiners on your talk page are just too lazy to read policy, license things correctly, read your responses, etc, etc, etc. Since policy won't allow I won't mention it though. They think the world will end if a file is deleted for a few minutes. I just can't resist responding as kindly as I can to the same repetitive drivel and then see even more drivel.--Canoe1967 (talk) 20:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
It would shine brighter if you weren't calling 2 delete comments and one keep comment a consensus to keep the template --Isderion (talk) 18:45, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
DRs are not a vote. One keep statement that refers to the correct policies outweighs 10 !votes that repeat themselves.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:33, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
You are not telling me anything new here. And of course you think that you are right. But that still doesn't make (one) your keep-comment a consensus. --Isderion (talk) 21:42, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Why aren't you counting the 8 keeps and one delete in the previous DR? Why are you so concerned about graffiti? It isn't your server, you won't need to pay for lawyers, etc, etc. If WMF has an issue with a file then they just remove them. We have decided to keep them until the WMF acts.--Canoe1967 (talk) 22:50, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
I don't really see how revealing my personal motivation would add something to this discussion. Regarding the last DR: Please read it (and count, it's only 6 keeps:)). The keep-comments were basically about a DR is not the appropriate place to discuss this "policy". So they weren't really about if Commons:Image_casebook#Graffiti and that template should stay like this or be changed and deleted, but about procedural questions. As my DR was about Commons:Image_casebook#Graffiti and that template there is no reason to count them in. Interestingly some participants of the old DR felt quite uncomfortable with the current "policy". Also I am quite puzzled that you wrote that "We have decided to keep them". As far as I can see, you didn't really decide anything. It was Fastily who made the decision based on some research he did and has jet to reveal. --Isderion (talk) 23:27, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Fastily probably read the same links to the legal issues as I did. They are all linked at the DR. There is no policy or guideline that says Fastily has answer all of your questions on their talk page. I say again that the template doesn't violate policy. We had a similar issue with Commons:Requests for comment/Non-US Freedom of Panorama under US copyright law and the result was to create Template:Not-free-US-FOP. The files have been accepted by the community and the templates are warnings to re-users. We could keep trying to delete the templates but consensus will most likely have them kept. If the WMF were to weigh in then we may have to review the issue.--Canoe1967 (talk) 13:08, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

You are quite disruptive lately. As you know "administrators closing deletion requests are expected to provide adequate explanation for their decision" and this hasn't been the case in my point of view. As you are not the closing administrator you cannot really provide a better explanation. That's why you should stay from that discussion. Your comments there are not helpful. --Isderion (talk) 22:56, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
If you don't like the decision then take it to the proper forum. Pestering the admin is far more disruptive than me asking you to understand that templates don't violate policy, files do.--Canoe1967 (talk) 23:04, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

other frames in that montage that had Slocan City on it[edit]

I've zoomed in and looked close on File:Central British Columbia Series 13 (HS85-10-38108).jpg, the lakeshore view of a town at lower left doesn't say Slocan City....can't make out what it is....."something City", looks like it starts with an O, can't think what that would be; that's not the Okanagan, maybe that's a "C" and it's Creston City....no, Creston's not on the lake, but south of it.....can't think of even any drowned towns at a location like that, I would have thought it was Slocan City, but the writing doesn't look anything like that. Thought maybe the creek below it might be part of the Slocan River but it says something else, "something creek" maybe......photographic detective work.....Skookum1 (talk) 04:33, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

With many of these files we may never know. Did you ask the uploader if they can use a microscope, magnifying glass, or scan the writing sections at higher resolution? If so we may wish to start a list. If not then there is no point in starting a list.--Canoe1967 (talk) 00:07, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Maybe the National Archives versions have clearer resolution.....for images such as that mystery town - which I'd be inclined to say is Slocan City but the writing looks nothing like that, given its location and mountain setting...but same as with the Grand Forks pics which were on the same page as a couple of Nakusp, just because they're on the same montage doesn't mean they're of the same place......I doubt one of the British Wikipedians who undertook all these scans would care to go back to the British Library and hunt down single images.....I think somewhere there'll be a program that I can adjust contrast and find-edges and stuff and find a way to read some of those.......Mostly I'm going through adding categories now, and making a few categories but not a lot....so far.Skookum1 (talk) 07:19, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Your best bet is probably to fall back on the TIFF and try sharpening it; these scans are as high resolution as they can be. The montage shots are usually made from a photograph of the montage - ie, in 1910 someone pinned nine pictures to a board, photographed that, and sent the print to Ottawa, in order to save a few dollars in registration fees. All that either LAC or the BL will have is the composite picture, which as you've found isn't always great - it's very small relative to the original, it's been made from a print rather than the negative (so it's second-generation), and it many not always have been in perfect focus when taken. Andrew Gray (talk) 17:46, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
I tried that with the TIF....slightly better resolution...but older handwriting even when clear is sometimes not all that discernible....that one lakeshore pic looks like "Ogden City" maybe except "Ogden" is too short, and there is no such place....there may be an older name for somewhere...BC terrain is very specific-looking though; that's what resolved that Grand Forks one really....most "o" placenames are in the Okanagan, and that's not Okanagan terrain...I'm inclined to say it's also Slocan City but the handwriting just doesn't look right...I'm gonna clip/crop the writing and send it around to some handwriting people.....Skookum1 (talk) 05:04, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

"Siwash Indians" on one pic....[edit]

Found this while looking through Category:British Columbia where I've been adding some categories to various things; this is from Alert Bay and is of Kwakwaka'wakw...probably 'Namgis whose reserve it is, but might be from the residential school so could be almost any group....File:Siwash Indians, British Columbia.png The term "Siwash" is hopelessly outmoded and now largely considered derisive; it was often used to mean the whole Georgia-Puget area peoples but has come to be associated with "drunken and lazy" etc....it's one of those terms that's "off the map" in BC now, though a few instances remain here and there (e.g. in th Fraser Canyon there's a Siwash Creek still I think). Thing is with this image is it needs cropping to remove both the mis-rendered placename (Alert "Inlet") and also to hide the "Siwash" part.....can I just move it the way we do in Wikipedia or can you do it or ??Skookum1 (talk) 10:55, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

You and Andrew should ask for Commons:RfR#Filemover rights. File movers can re-name files here. They should give it to you If you promise to use it for the British Library category and politically correct new names only with other files. Btw as a photographer you may wish to chime in at w:Talk:Rick Remender. I think I can get perfect colour tone on the image if I can email the arena to find out what lighting they use. I can look up the camera specs to see what tones it changed and then do the math for halide or sodium lights in the arena. As of now we have a lame image the subject in his infobox until we get it sorted. I changed it once and the photographer of the lame image reverted it. I set my camera according to lighting which is why these three elves all have the same perfectly matching tone. Can you tell which was taken outside on a cloudy day and which indoors with flash and sodium/halide lighting?--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:28, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

{talkpage angel} I don't know if it helps but here is a bit of de-noising. I don't know how much suits your purpose, so I provide three. Just ask for the ones you don't need to be deleted, and please change whatever you like on the filepages. Penyulap 12:44, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you Pen. They are better but the image looks like it is a bad scan from a 1920 book. It would be nice if we had a better scan somewhere. The book may be in some BC libraries still. I haven't tried Google yet but it may be .pdf online.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:59, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Just a quick note, I'm generally wary of "politically correct" language, which is inherently POV especially when thrown around with an iron first as "First Nations" often is......but culturally correct is the issue here, by the location they're Kwakwaka'wakw (so far as we know) and that is the proper way to describe an indigenous person/people....and also because "Siwash" isn't not just non-pc, it's widely regarded now as the equivalent of the N-word.Skookum1 (talk) 13:04, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Questions about the Visual consent image[edit]

Err, maybe not, it loses the whole 'poke fun at racism' feel of the first one. I don't know if the photographer or uploader was using it as clever criticism, or if it was just a fluke, but the message of the image had me laughing out loud that's for sure. Penyulap 12:59, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Category:Islamophobia[edit]

Unfortunately, your invocation of "consensus"[sic] there seems rather strange, since Category:Racism has not been on Category:Islamophobia for about 5/6ths of the time that the category has been in existence, and during all that time until a month ago (almost six years!), there was only one significant advocate for including the category vs. a number of skeptics. According to any ordinary interpretation of consensus, Category:Racism should be left off until there's a consensus that it should be included... AnonMoos (talk) 20:53, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Those are en:wp policies. We want users to find images easily. Has anyone found a recent dictionary that doesn't call it Racism? My 1980 one doesn't have it. It may have only changed in the last 6 years. If that is the case then users should expect us to keep up to the language.--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:23, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
You were the one who invoked "consensus", so don't tell me that it's only relevant to en.wikipedia. AnonMoos (talk) 22:27, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Category:First Nations of Canada subcats?[edit]

Hi, I'm back...sort of. Minimizing my activities but trying to tidy certain things up; health reasons force me to restrain myself, especially from knocking heads with numbskulls....but for lack of something more constructive to do with my laid-up time, I'm back.... In noting the existence of Category:Native American leaders, I discovered that there is no Category:First Nations leaders nor even Category:First Nations people. Because of the "FOO people" problem/ambiguity, I'm wondering if we might not bypass the muddle that carries with it in Wikipedia by using Category:First Nations persons instead (which is in fact a Canadian usage that's more common when referring to "generic individuals" than the Wiki-ism "First Nations people" which as I'm sure you already know carries two very confusable meanings; cf Category:Okanagan people, where unlike Category:Skwxwu7mesh, which was wiped out of Wikipedia by "never mind what they might be called" types, Category:Syilx exists in Wikipedia but its main article has gone to Category:Okanagan people, which is in fact hte more common accepted term in English; but not the American spelling and so forth. Anyways, how you you feel about "FOO persons" as the module? Or should we just make Category:First Nations leaders for now and maybe Category:First Nations women and maybe similar for "men" and "children" and maybe "group portraits". I'm approaching you because I know you're .....sane..... and because two heads are better than six or seven.Skookum1 (talk) 03:17, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

I went and made Category:First Nations leaders but haven't fully populated it; lots are to be found in the individual tribal categories and subcategories; not all subcategories named for leaders apply, they're not people-pictures...or maybe those do anyway? e.g. Category:Gray Lock.Skookum1 (talk) 03:38, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
